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 opportunities. YOU KNOW WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU IS (what it feels like, what it looks like, and so on).  Your instincts may have been leading you a lot better than you might think so far, too, so...  

Pay attention. (I'm gonna do the same.)

And allow me to point to the character's shoes.  I seriously doubt they're super-pricey, trendy designer shoes.  They look pretty simple to me, and yet our character is rocking them here. The point?  

Well, we needn't try hard to feel like we have it going on.  And if we feel like we have it going on, we'll look like we have it going on, K?

With so much (at least potentially) good stuff going on, it appears that our character isn't moving.  Either she's pondering her next move, her choices. Or she's acknowledging many reasons to stay right where she is... because the opportunities she desires are probably in her hands (or right nearby)... no matter what our little bird-friend is chirping in her ear.

Or maybe nothing in particular is being chirped in her ear.  Maybe she just likes feathered creatures.  And maybe they like her back... because she isn't a threat in spite of what is at her disposal.

Have you noticed how fidgety and freaked-out birds can get?  Handling them like this is a gift.

Keep in mind, though, that the better some get at their craft, the more likely they are to stir up chirping (talk, rumors, blah blah blah).  Feel free to pick and choose from among whatever you hear, and fuck all the rest.  

Finally, as you bring others up, as you make them feel good about themselves, try to keep yourself up.  And don't be afraid to allow others to help you up, too-- some would love to watch you grow and succeed, believe it.

Have a wonderful month!

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…

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…

Message of the Moment: The Stars

And on November's menu is sparkle.  Sparks.  Shimmer.  Shine.  Polish. Metals (metallic hues).  Stars in our eyes.  Beautiful evenings.  Superstar status.  Fabulousness.  Glamour.  A light in the dark.  Guidance and guides.  Insight.  Wisdom.  Experience.  Support.  Awareness.  An eye on the future.  Hope and faith... and fate.  Wishes. Satisfaction.  Know-how. Treasure.  A compass.  Direction. Standing out.  Purpose.  Recognition.  Awards and rewards.  Perks.  Recommendations and positive feedback/reviews.  Ability and/or capability.  Cosmic activity or sights in the skies.  Discoveries.  Modeling, posturing.  Killing two birds with one stone.
Yes, sparks are there (or still there).  And they needn't exist only in our most intimate relationships.  They can and may exist in what we do.  Because it's kinda nice to feel like doing... what we do.  Not everyday or every second of every day.  But just often enough for us to see that, overall, something we are doing is pretty fabu…
