Message of the Moment: The Queen of Pentacles

Well, holy crap-- I'm not so sh*tty!

The Queen of Pentacles will serve as the Card of July.  
But,  it's July 7th!

 Yeah, I know.  I'm usually a tiny bit late to most events so... I haven't really surprised myself here.  

I'm delighted to see this card because this Queen's feet are bare!  Comfortable.  Free.  Soaking up the sun, feeling a breeze, playing with soil, making sure the ground is 'still there'.  We use our sensitive feet for walking purposes, typically, so this card could be recommending light, comfortable, "practical" footwear.  Or, perhaps the remedy some need is a delicious surface beneath their feet such as sand, grass, soil,  even  warm rocks or pavement.

 The ground is 'still there', folks.  No matter the turbulence (of late), some have landed just fine, safe and sound.  No matter how many moves have been made, some are very much capable of commitment and discipline-- and the Queen of Pentacles will see to it that we remain committed to a particular goal without stressing out or worrying too much.  Heck, some commitments/goals may even be enjoyable.

The Queen of Pentacles, after all, isn't worrying... because she's already imagined a worst-case scenario, planned ahead, saved money for a rainy day, got some of her ducks in row, organized, cleaned, run errands, attended appointments, made room (or a special/designated space) for productivity/success/accomplishment.  We can finish what we've started, and feel absolutely terrific about it!

We're OK, settling in, feeling better, dreading less, getting into a beneficial routine.

Where would you like to feel more stability?  The ground beneath your own 'feet'? 

Work at it.  We work everyday, many of us, even if some don't hold a 9-5 job.  Keep going, because you'll be satisfied with results.  You will see signs of growth.  At the very least, potential will become apparent to you and others as you go.

Speaking of results, evidence or proof is important to the Queen of Pentacles.  She prefers something she can see, touch/feel, smell, taste.

Women may be a focus of the month of July, with some 'rising', maximizing capabilities, refining skills.  Even a new skill may be easier to develop, and turn into a practice, than originally thought.  And it may lead to more lucrative opportunities.

Remember the value that you bring to a situation, and hang onto it... just as the Queen of Pentacles holds onto her pentacle.  Act like you are valuable.  The Queen cares for/nurtures, humbly displays, and appreciates her pentacle.  She's not holding onto that pentacle for dear life, frightened about letting it go-- she is calmly ensuring nothing happens to it. She might even have her pentacle appraised!  

Anyway, whether you or someone else notices it this month, you are valued.  And some will have no trouble 'getting real' or helping others 'get real'.

Happy July!

Message of the Moment: The Two of Swords & Knave of Chalices

What better time to write a Message of the Moment for August than on the 4th of August?  I feel like I'm right on time here.  I mean I could have posted about August on August 10th. Or August 20th.  Or not at all... like I did about July... which we won't discuss.

OK.  Fine.  I'll share what July was (or would have been) about on this blog, and ignore a preference for, you know, moving on.

The card I drew for July was the Two of Swords.  To me, it's the very-likely-a-no card, the card that keeps you out of that super-special and/or desirable team, group, clique, effort, opportunity, event, gathering, meeting, conversation...

You might know the thing you feel (or have felt) "kept out of". 

Or, you might know the thing, situation, etc., you've deliberately (with your own two shiny gigantic swords) been keeping out of your sweet little sphere.  (And damn, I won't even fuck with you and any of that.) Because when the Two of Swords is drawn, either we are…

June's Message of the Moment: The Knave of Chalices

Well, here's a friendly face I haven't seen in a while... although, honestly, after April's draw, I'd be OK with the Tower, Death, Three of Swords, Ten of Swords, Seven of Swords, Ten of Wands, Nine of Wands, Seven of Wands, and so on and so on, etc.

So.  The Knave of Chalices, at least to me (AND KEEP DEM ONE-STAR REVIEWS COMING LIKE THIS IS EVER-FASCINATING-AND-TOTALLY-RELIABLE YELP HERE, FOLKS— thanks, I know how much my posts suck), is kindness personified.  

This card may represent an offer or invitation, a small opportunity or proposal, little tokens of appreciation, manners, compliments, toasts, and subtle acts of kindness.  For instance, think: "TG, have coffee with me."  

Then, think about TG likely having coffee with you because pretty much no one asks her to have coffee BUT.  What's important here is, TG loves coffee and it rocks her world.  Coffee may be kind of a small deal (you know, a small Knave of Chalices deal) to som…

Message of the Moment: The King of Swords

Happy September!  I couldn't decide between a yellow or silver background so I've gone with both. I'm sure the King of Swords is just thrilled with the look.

Alright, folks.  As I study the King of Swords and how it might relate to my audience, I can't help but think of the following phrases and questions:

Here we go again...
You ask a stupid question, you get a stupid answer.
What part of _____ do you not understand? 
Didn't we go over this already?
What'd I say?
Do you understand? 
Well, this is a useful conversation...
I told you so...
You just had to go there...
Really?  Seriously?
Sure, why not? I have all the free time in the world for this...
Obviously, I'm gonna have to sit down for this...
Thank you, Captain Obvious.

What I love most about the King of Swords is the look on his face.  Is he tired of our shit?  Or, has he turned his overall tiredness-over-our-shit into sarcasm?

Whatever the King of Swords represents in your life, you need to know that you'r…
