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!

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 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…
