The Lesson of the 7 of Swords

[This is an updated version of an article I wrote on my previous blog on 4/20/2010.] At the 7 of Sword, your problem came with a name and a face. Even if you don't know who it was, you know someone committed the crime. In a word, it may have been theft. More generally, and… Continue reading The Lesson of the 7 of Swords

Actual vs Potential

In my previous article (Tendency), I introduced the idea that an Astrological Birth Chart can describe one’s tendency to flow (express or project) energy (thoughts, feelings, actions, and resources) in a particular way. The Natal Chart is the starting point. By also reviewing the progressed charts, we can see how that tendency might trend over… Continue reading Actual vs Potential

Willingness

The Star Tarot - Cathy McClelland The 5 of Wands requires participation. The point of the physical realm is action and interaction: choice...choosing. Wanting and desiring are great, but you must be willing to journey. The 5 of Wands in the past shows that you have been willing. You are willing to step forward even… Continue reading Willingness

Disimprisionment (Repost)

[ I originally posted this in December of 2010. It ages so well, I decided to repost it. ] Do you know the difference between the words discreet and discrete? We’re more familiar with discreet.  A few synonyms are: subtle, cautious, tactful, prudent, and inconspicuous. (See Inconspicuously Unrelenting.) Discrete, on the other hand, is less… Continue reading Disimprisionment (Repost)

Our Second New Moon in Cancer

Eclipses hide the light, so you can see a shadow, then turn the light back on so you can heal the shadow. On July 4th, we experienced our third and final eclipse this season. One month earlier, on June 3rd, I shared the quote above in my article called June / July Eclipses. Think about… Continue reading Our Second New Moon in Cancer

Decision

I learned recently that the origin of the word decision is quite different than I would have expected. It is, however, elegant and enlightening and makes perfect sense. We all know that an incision is when something is cut into. Think of it this way: in (in or into) - cision (cut). Decision, when we… Continue reading Decision

Nine of Wands

Yesterday, I did a reading using the Mythic Tarot by Tricia Newell. The first card I pulled definitely spoke to me. It was the Nine of Wands. The 9 of Wands always takes me back to my Software Engineering career. Back then, it always seemed as if it took 50% of the time to complete… Continue reading Nine of Wands
