Be the Change

Optimism Innovation - the opposite

Be the Change.
Kick up your heels.
Lead Follow or get out of the way.
Someone has to be in charge.  If it is your own life, it damn well should be yourself.  I am in a rut and this King advises to do something.  If the goal seems to far away I need to figure out what bit of something will start me on my way.
The authors reversed card meaning, strikes a cord today:  "If you feel like you are wasting time, focus your energy on something that is more meaningful to you. It's okay to change your mind if a situation is influencing you negatively."

Aardvark

Patience is a virtue

Seven of Crystals (Pentacles). 
Sometimes we can be so focused on results we forget to enjoy the moment.  And heaven forbid the results were not what we were expecting.  Still there is something to be said for a job well done, regardless of the outcome.

Gazelle

The Traveller

What a lovely place to start with a new deck, The Fool, or in this authors take, The Traveller,  Keywords Adventure-Potential. It is always an adventure to open a new deck and see what and how it speaks to you.  Enchanting colored pencil artwork, gives each card a soft fuzzy feeling. In this deck only animals are featured on each of the 78 cards, and the pips also have the counted symbols for each suit.  The cards are lovely, too soft to be used as Tarot in my opinion, but to each their own. After going through the deck the other day, I thought they would all be lovely as individual gift cards to be included in my mailings to friends, family and different acquaintances.
Does a leaping gazelle remind me of The Fool beginning on a new adventure?  Maybe maybe not, though they both are taking a leap.

Forecast

Deep in four territory

I drew a pair of fours today; holding tight to each other they presented themselves.  There is a lot of contrast in these two cards, and yesterday the fourth major, the Emperor was the draw.  I remember Sharyn drawing fours just recently and I wonder what all the fours are about.  Something to think on.
Are we in the roaring teens similar to the roaring twenties a century ago, and collapse is imminent?

Power Up - Power on

Traditional card would be the Emperor

Not your traditional Emperor.  Freyja is out on her her tour of what she reigns over.  Power is what you make of it.  You can boss others and get things done, or as a leader you can get out and lead by example. 
Lead, follow, or get out of the way. 
Today, given a choice, I will make my own.

On gossamer wings

Song sung blue, everybody knows one.

This Queen of Cups has traveled to the sea to watch the Full Moon's rays dance upon the waves.  Enchantment; as a Queen of Cups she is at one with the sea.  She has returned to the shore for solitude and solace.  There is comfort in the lullaby of the waves.  She listens to the sound of eternity as she holds a shell to her ear and  will take it with her as a reminder of the song of the sea.  I too go to the shore to find comfort and healing.  These long cold days of winter reminds me my feet were meant to walk in sand, not pound the pavement in boots. Time to plan a vacation.

This or That

Juggling Act

The Two of Pentacles is always a pretty straightforward card.  Juggling two things at a time, or maybe two choices to consider.  My mind started to wander just now and maybe this princess is a selkie.  The time has come for her to choose to stay on dry land or return to the sea in the background.
Today I may be faced with choice, each with benefits and drawbacks, and the advice this card offers is to weigh both options before choosing.

Significator

Its okay to be okay with yourself,

The Queen of Pentacles, my chosen significator. Whenever she makes an appearance I know that something significant usually happens on those days.  Outwardly seemingly confident and secure, those still waters run pretty deep.  Reflecting on yesterdays post of the underlining program we received in childhood, I like money, always have.  Even as a young girl I worked so I could make money. Paper routes, babysitting, corn-detasseling, then finally Sixteen and I could work real jobs.  And there were the naysayers saying wealth and abundance, were and are a sign of greed, one of the seven deadly sins.  So my relationship with money has been tumultuous.
My affirmation today: "I have a great relationship with money, it loves me and fills my pockets." -quoted from my Hay House calendar.    So today I am putting coins in both of my pockets and jingle-jangle them all day.

Tradition

Remember where you came from

I am who I am in part from the things I have learnt from my parents and family.  Those early days are the foundational  footprint of who I am, and that is part of the struggle.  My parents way of life was based on their parent, based on their parents and so on back.  A part of my operating system is obsolete.  I have spent the better part of my life time trying to over-write their programming.
Tradition, some good and some not so good and the not so good needs to be replaced with updated versions.

Reminder

As the World turns

I needed this card today as a reminder that the World turns.  Everything that has a beginning has an ending.  I noticed the images of Winter and Spring at the top and bottom of the World.  Here we are in the deep freeze.  Two weeks of below freezing weather, some ice and snow, and now it seems we are heading for a few days of sub freezing temps and wind chill below zero. Thankfully Spring always follows Winter and Winter's grip will soon lose it's hold.
"This too shall pass."

Ah-hah

Lets take it out for a test drive

Yesterday the Queen of Staves(wands) was deeply focused on her wand at hand, today she has taken it out into the world.  An ah-hah moment needs to be shared, even if it is with pen and paper for us to remember it down the line.  Like some dreams, so vivid and poignant that we are sure we will remember, then upon waking later in the morning those wisps of images are dissipated not to be remembered.

Awareness

The Eyes have it

It is curious to me that this queen, Queen of Wands, with all her energy and outgoing nature, does not look straight out at me.  I went through the deck and only the Page of Cups of the Court cards looks straight out at us.  There are just a few Majors with a direct gaze as well.   In sales I always look directly at  the people I am spending time with and it has become habit with most everyone in my day to day.   I guess she has become so fascinated with her wand in hand, that everything else fades to the background.   For advice today I am thinking - don't get to caught up in myself and forget what is going on around me.

Revisitation

No Choice is a choice.


When given a choice and neither feels right, I take the third option and just walk away.  Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda... Hindsight is usually 20/20.
