Message of the Moment: The Knight of Wands

Happy October!  Some of you may be starting to enjoy the cooler temps of autumn (finally).  But even if you're not, it might still feel like a new season has arrived with bells, whistles, funky and upbeat background music, and maybe a knight in shining armor costume-- the whole enchilada-- for a number of folks out there.  Remember when I said the Wheel of Fortune would keep things interesting?  

Let's just say that the Knight of Wands is fully equipped and prepared for interesting.  The Knight of Wands is fueled by 'interesting'-- he lives for this shit!  He spices up your food and moments. He puts a spring in your step.  He brings the gifts of action, charisma, charm, shine, boldness, bravery, determination, and attitude.

The Knight of Wands isn't one of those "well-paced" cards, according to some interpretations out there.  However, I beg to differ.  Although I feel this guy might be a bit overdressed for certain situations, I don't see his horse rushing into a scene with the knight ready to rescue someone.  Both the horse and the knight appear to be at ease while strutting their stuff!

I don't see his weapon pointing at anyone either.  It is present, but his movements, his strategies, his motives, and his presence are the true weapons here.  

The Knight of Wands may be prepared for battle, but he is not actually battling which is important to note, I think.  As such, there is no reason to get super cocky-bitchy (to make a point) or run scared, but you may wish to be more selective about the battles you take on since patience isn't a skill used by everyone. 

(And, yes, it's a skill.)

The Knight of Wands isn't as naive, unaware, impatient, young, impulsive or foolish as some might make him out to be.  He does seem pretty (or veeery) sensitive, though.  Why else would he be wearing armor for protection?  Encouragement or positive reinforcement may help.

The Knight of Wands could be here to give some the confidence and courage to move (it), 'go for it', to make or own mistakes, to practice, to train or become stronger somehow.  

Finally, encouraging others is nice, but consider encouraging yourself as you embark on new(ish) projects and goals or become accustomed to rules.

A "new you" is birthed every day.   Yay.

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 Nine of Pentacles

Yes, it's been awhile since I last posted a Tarot update.  And I have to admit: I missed you!  How have you been?
 I bet some have a lot to tell, good and sucky.  We may be full of stories and experiences now, as full as those bushes with coins up there. We may be even be ready to display these stories somehow, just as beautifully as those coins, all polished and pretty, are being displayed up there.
Full. Lush. Plush. Blossomed. Success(es). Enhancements. Savings. Cushions. Furnishings. Talents, skills,"gifts". Education...  These are among the words that come to mind whenever I see this card.  There is a richness to it, sort of like the richness one might find in certain, say, yummy French dishes. :) 
We wouldn't mind having a bit of that fullness, that richness and, dare I say, some may achieve just it this month. 'Something to show for it'.  The fruits (rewards) of our labor. Golden opportunities to maximize our resources, too.
Consider using these oppor…

Message of the Moment: The Nine of Swords

Mother of God, I'm so glad I pulled a nice stress-free card for April.

Whenever I pull a card like this, I'm always tempted to put it back in my deck.  Like, it can't be serious, right?  It just can't...

And if I'm pulling a card for a specific someone, I think, how the hell am I supposed to explain this one?  I mean... what if that someone is going through an overwhelming amount of poo already?  Does that person really need to see the Nine of Swords?  Do I really need to alert that person of an incoming episode of explosive diarrhea?

Happy... April?  (And if another reader/blogger draws a happier card, feel free to check out his/her interpretation while I stew in Nine of Swords juices over here.)

Since we're all dying to know what's on the menu, I figure I should start with the appetizer section... which includes worries and what-ifs and other (likely petty) annoyances.  A series of them, actually.  You know, the Nines in a suit are always so close to th…
