You choose: you pick the card, you decide how to apply it, and then get today’s reading the for your card.
This week the overall energy seems to focus on doing things, but for different reasons.
Ace cards have a thread of beginning energy (although not with the same wattage as the Fool card from the major arcana.) They also typically carry the essence of the suit, which is what draws my attention in this instance. Pentacles are connected with the physical realm, often career, work, or wealth. Today feels like the physical realm in general with the advice to engage with the physical realm to rest the mind. Think in terms of a long jog, or the classic hot shower where genius ideas are born.
Swords and knights are action. Swords are also connected with the element of air which in turn points to mind and intellect. If you chose the knight of swords (no spoilers! you’ll have to watch the video and pick a card to see if this one is yours) then the energy for you is also flowing toward doing and action, but something that combines doing and thinking, as you might with following a pattern or recipe or anything new really.
Cups cards connect to the element of water, intuition, emotion, and closest relationships. This is also doing oriented. but working with friends. Not so much working on a career or physical-realm task as the other cards, but actively polling your brain trust. It feels like the thing to DO is to poll the audience so to speak, to reach out to trusted friends. The idea of “two heads are better than one” will serve you well – especially if the other head is someone you have a good relationship with.
I hope you all had a good week. I don’t know about you, but I’m still on turkey overload and enjoying the start of elfcon season. I don’t know why but it seems easier this year. I’m probably massively forgetting something. But with what I am remembering, the YouTube channel will definitely only post once, maybe twice a week, but hopefully the blog will be a bit more active. That I can do in between batches of cookies.
Left: Queen of Swords. Swords are intellect, and queens are nurturing leaders. Think. Help but help smart. Triage and mind your resources. It reminds me of something I once read about UNICEF. They are a good way to help because they have infrastructure in place, and know what is truly USEABLE in an area. If the help doesn’t match the need, you are either throwing paper towels at a flood or donating a high end laptop to a village that doesn’t have electricity. Don’t let ego or impulse trip up your naturally generous nature or helping impulse. I read a Tweet recently that has a valid point: before you send a donation to a senate race in another state, donate food to you local food bank. Supporting good public policy is critical to do long term good, but a meal for a hungry child in your own town is a much more urgent need. In short, put your efforts and energies where they are truly most needed, not necessarily where your first impulse goes, no matter how well intentioned that impulse might be.
Center: Three of Cups. Here’s that Richard Bach quote I was telling you about in the video. “The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.” This is a good time to celebrate the non-genetic family that means the most to you. They are pure gold in times when families of blood can’t (or choose not to for their own good) be together.
Right: Ace of Cups. Inspiration. This card comes with the mental image of a coin being dropped in a cup. Inspiration comes, it can’t always be sought after. Sleep on it. Put a problem aside just for a minute if you can. The something-else that you do, the other -thing that you think about just might inspire the answer you were seeking in the first place. Creativity has to do with connecting disparate dots as much single minded focus.
I SO appreciate everyone who reads this, follows on the socials, trusts me to do readings for you…you all are unfailingly awesome!
I had a really enjoyable phone reading this afternoon. (Thank you so much you-know-who-you-are!) Shout out to WordPress for the PayPal buttons that are making phone readings work out this time. In the past, payment and scheduling were so confusing for clients and there was such low demand that I mothballed phone readings ages ago.
But (insert Poltergeist move voice) they’re baaa-aaack!
Due to the Pandemic and my desire to oh, I dunno, stay alive, in-person readings are closed until a vaccine comes along. Phone sessions are the only real-time reading I can offer right now. I have to admit, it is kind of nostalgic and fun. We are talking old school friendly psychic phone readings, only without the triple digit surprises on your phone bill, high per-minute charges or sneaky connection fees.
Interested? It’s easy. Just go to the PHONE READINGS page in the menu. Buy the session (5 or 7 cards) using the PayPal button – just like you would order anything you buy online. Then use the contact form provided to schedule your reading. Call me at the scheduled time and POOF! Live Tarot happens.
So stay home! Phone readings are available now, and the discounted prices on email readings have been extended to May 8 to match the local stay at home orders.
Now go wash your hands and stop touching your face!
