In the Tarot, the suit of Swords represents the element air and thus symbolizes thought. In a reading I did for myself this morning, a number of Swords cards appeared. The word ‘sharp’ is interesting. We use it to describe blades, but also intelligence. A sharp mind is an effective tool, but sharp tools can… Continue reading Sharp Thought
Envy is uncomfortable. It is bad enough envying a complete stranger, who appears to have the very thing you desire; it is much worse when you find yourself envious of a loved one, who just experienced a win-fall. You’re happy for them. You want for them everything they desire. You even helped them get there… Continue reading What to Do about Envy
As soon as there is another person involved, many of us consider manifestations more difficult to achieve. “I can line up with what I desire,” you might say, “but how do I get my husband/girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/boss to see it the same way or comply?” The Journey of the Fool is from where you are to where… Continue reading How do I get what I want with or from someone else?
What’s the difference between appreciation and love? Is one more valuable or more powerful than the other? There is clearly a difference between the two. Imagine for a moment walking into your favorite coffee shop. Upon receiving your delicious caffè latte, you say to the barista you’ve never met before, “I love you!” Yeah, not… Continue reading Love versus Appreciation
In my previous post, I wrote about the Astrology brewing for the summer: the big stuff (as in the background vibrations created by the Gas Giants) and the poignant stuff (the eclipses). This post is about things closer to home (the inner planets) and closer to now (Solstice and the next few days). Today is… Continue reading Solstice Alignments
About nine years ago, I received a message from spirit. What I heard was something like this: “If you let go of everything you have, you will receive everything you want.” Every now and again, I recall that message. Often, I remember it when I am a bit frustrated. I yell back at it and… Continue reading Taxi!
My readings of late have been intense; challenge cards litter every spread. I know something is brewing. As Phil Collins says, "I can feel it coming In the Air Tonight." The first card that caught my attention was the 5 of Swords. With this card I most often simply think of a general feeling of… Continue reading In the Air
Have you ever had a three-way? Have you ever wanted to? Well hold that thought. 😉 OK, are you back? Now that I have your attention again (after your mind wandered for a moment), the kind of three-way I’m about to discuss is not quite what you were thinking. Yes, a dynamic duo is in… Continue reading A Dynamic Duo
Tarot of the Spirit written by Pamela Eakins, PH. D. is my favorite Tarot book. The wisdom she conveys is Plutonian; it penetrates to the depths of your soul and initiates a transformational process. I rarely pick up the book any more, but still hear her profound phrases echo in my mind. Many of her… Continue reading Dirty Dishes
