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're good at it.  And the reason you're not stressed out or excited by it is, you've done this so many times already.  Whatever this is, it's redundant.  It is no longer challenging to you...

BUT, you might be the source of a certain kind of information; cerebral and savvy as fuck and a leader in a certain realm; a go-to person; helpful, bright, organized (for the most part), precise, articulate, and respected; and/or relied upon, probably in a way that involves consulting, education, administration, law, information, technology, communication, strategy, planning, instruction(s), languages, translation, culinary/baking, simplification/clarification-- or all of the above).

And, honey, if someone is going to get to the root of an issue, it's you with that giant fucking sword of yours. And if you're looking into having a surgical procedure (literal or figurative) done, the King of Swords is pretty much the kind of dude you want working on ya.

You can, and will, use your head at this point.  If not, someone or something will get you to use it or... you may just serve as someone else's brain.

And thinking before you speak, if you are able, is highly recommended.  I'd say that preparing in advance for certain goals will be mighty helpful as well (because some of us tend to freak out over last-minute activity).

Overall, the King of Swords has gotten a lot done, and he's had a chance to clear his head.  He's learned a ton, and he knows a lot.  Now all he needs to figure out is how to share what he knows, ideally in a patient manner.  Because his eyes don't exactly read "super duper patient".  He's kinda gotta work on his... form.  His presentation.

No, the King of Swords' eyes look adorably annoyed and grumpy and unfriendly (and so real) to me, actually.  I love his "resting bitch" face.  He's just so cool...

I had to go and gush over the King of Swords, didn't I?

Have an awesome September!

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…
