Message of the Moment: The Queen of Swords

Sooo, the Queen of Swords has shown up for the month of March (which is almost gone, but I digress).  And you know what's super-hot right now?

Thinking.  Using your head.  Trying to make logical sense of a situation.  Being aware of the truth in a situation as well.

And I know that's hard.  Lovely people have been dying around me, for instance.  A nice friend in January.  My father-in-law this week.  It hasn't been easy to "keep it together" at times.  I bawl on my own.  But, I do the best I can to keep my head as clear as possible and feel accomplished (while working with others to make them feel the same way).

Accomplishments don't need to be huge, by the way.  They can be tiny and still mean something, because they're showing us that we can get 'this part' done.  And if can get 'this part' done, perhaps we can get 'other parts' done.

A message gets across thanks to the Queen of Swords.  It IS, however, ALL ABOUT the way it is presented, or what is said/written and HOW.  

And, from the looks of this card, I'd say that some females will be given the floor... especially if they can get others to listen to/hear them.

Some DO want for some others to speak more.  To write more.  To sing more. To illustrate more.  To teach and guide more.  To communicate with more people/cultures.  To take all these broken pieces that hurt us so much and... put them into coherent sentences so we can go ahead and move forward with them on our minds.

Aside from communication and analysis, areas of the brain or cognitive functions, in general, tend to be highlighted by the Swords suit as well.  There could be a focus on sharpening, say, our memory, reasoning, language, attention, and so on. 

This card is not meant to label anyone as "cold", by the way.  I know "cold" is a popular term in the world of Swords suit descriptions.  But... no.

No.  We're just not as simple as "cold' or "warm".  Sorry.  Humans are a liiittle more complex than that.

The Queen of Swords, however, is strategic.  And, in some cases, she has to be. She can't just fly by the seat of her pants.  She's gotta have a plan.  She's gotta have a method.  She's gotta play it cool.  She's gotta use her smarts (street smarts included) and wits to navigate delicate situations and to make the best possible decisions...

AND SHE WRITES THINGS DOWN.  I have a difficult time remembering certain details, especially when I wind up working long hours while not sleeping enough.  But, I'm working on this-- whether I use a post-it note paper or a computer, I'll be taking notes.  I promise.

Finish what you can.  Tie up some loose ends.  Take up an opportunity to clear your mind and recharge.  And...  I hope you value the people in your lives, including yourself, who help make sense out of troubling moments...

All best,

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…
