Monday, Nov. 24
2 of Pentacles
Monday is fairly humdrum… same old, same old. A good day to work diligently since the environment will be quiet. Everybody will be too busy fixated on their own work. I know — it doesn’t sound fun, but it’s a good day to clean out the drains … Continue reading

Monday, May 5, 2014 – Fear and Courage

20140504-221844.jpg

Today, we have the Eight of Cups.

The emphasis is on courage. How badly do you want what you want?

Eights are related to Strength or Justice card depending on the deck. You may find that both interpretations fit. Strength is about strength and courage. The Justice card is about doing what’s right and true.

Do you have courage to be true to yourself? Sure you do!

In this particular card from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot, the girl motions towards a dark corridor as if to say, “Are you coming?”

There is a desire to follow her and go through the unlit corridor, if only out of curiosity. Are you willing to go through the dark (your fears) in order to get what you want?

In astrology, this would be described by your Mars function. With Saturn involved, you may fear what you want to pursue or fear getting what you want. It may even extend to fear of success. Sound familiar?

Do you have something you want to pursue but simultaneously have fears about? Did you overcome a fear? Tell us about it!

Monday, April 28, 2014 – Oppositions

20140421-144153.jpg

Monday, we have the 8 of Cups.

Your heart could be pulled in two different directions today. There are oppositions from the grand cross.

Issues may come to the forefront of your mind. Things like whether to stay or go, be comfortable or take a risk, and security vs freedom.

You do not have to act on the information you get, but it is worth reviewing the information before making any decisions. The issue came up for a reason.

Are you considering any tough decisions today?

Wednesday, February 19, 2014 – Patterns

Wednesday, we have the 8 of Cups.

The 9 of Cups is often called the wish card and contains its various related interpretations. But today, the 8 of Cups will share the 9 of Cups meaning because its placement before the nine in the suit.

Sometimes, you get what you wish for and there’s a problem: it doesn’t turn out the way you had hoped, you lose all desire for it once you get it, you don’t know what to do, and other gripes. People with Venus in Aries can struggle with this since they generally lose interest once they’ve conquered the object of desire.

Now that you’ve gotten what you wished for, what do you do now?

Some people pursue the next dream (or love object) and repeat this over and over. But they are dissatisfied in the end. They are stuck, repeating the 8 of Cups.

There’s nothing wrong with repeating something, so long as you are getting somewhere! But if you are repeating a pattern, getting nowhere, and feeling dissatisfied each time, it’s worth a closer examination.

There is no easy, cookie cutter solution for this. You’ll have to do things like ask why something isn’t working, examine your expectations, look at your own actions, and break a pattern that does not work for you.

However, the 8 of Cups offers some guidance. Six of Cups conveys harmony and Two of Cups conveys a meeting. If you can meet the harmony in yourself and in your life, you’ll be much closer to getting what you really want or need.

Can you relate? Have you untangled yourself from a pattern?

Wednesday, January 15, 2014 – Shhhhh

20140114-222237.jpg

Today, we have the 8 of Cups, and the Full Moon occurs Wednesday, 10:52pm CST at 25 degrees Cancer.

Your mind may be apt to wander today. You may be more quiet and reflective. It could be a retreat to lick your wounds, but not necessarily. The feeling I get is that people will want to retreat into their shells today to reflect. You might feel like being a little bit of a hermit today.

If you go out, I expect it to be quiet night out.

It’s a nice pace of change from the constant busyness the grand cross has stirred up.

How are you feeling?

Tuesday, December 31, 2013 – New Year’s Eve

I almost forgot it was New Year’s Eve. 🙂

8 of Cups

The  8 of Cups shows a figure in the moonlight walking away from 8 Cups.

Usually this is interpreted as leaving things behind, but I feel this figure is just walking into the night to pursue something quiet.

What does it mean?

It means you could get to the noisy party (the 8 cups) and decide you just want to go home and take a bubble bath. It could mean you just want to stay home, period.

If you decide to go out, be careful and stay safe. There’s a T-square in the sky, and people are generally unnerved.
