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.

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…
