Reevaluate

Stop look and listen


As I pondered my draw of the Page of Pentacles I noticed that his right bicep is rather bulky, suggesting maybe someone who has been working on body building, I hadn't noticed before.  And yet with all of his strength, his touch with the pentacle is rather light. 
What does all this mean? Not sure, but something to ponder on like the Page gazing at his Pentacle.

This or That?

I am not listening.

Shut down and tuned out.  This card reminds me of the times I catch myself with my arms crossed at the chest.  When I realize that I am in that posture, I immediately think what is going on that has put me in a defensive posture of detachment?    I have learned to pay attention not only to myself but others.  What is being said that I or another has begun to withdrawal from the conversation?

Then I took a second look and thought she is a merperson, left the sea for some shore-time and now she has to choose, and she can't.  What can one do when a choice so needed can't be made?

Heartbroken

A loss of sorts

I have lost or misplaced or it has gone into hiding, a card, The Three of Swords. I was shuffling my deck and several cards jumped.  I saw one and picked up and knew that several others went under the dresser that I use as my altar space.  I swept my hand and there were several more. I went through deck and the Three of Swords has gone missing. No where to be found.  I am sadden by the loss of a friend.  I have another deck stuffed in the back of one of the drawers, still a loss is a loss and I am sadden. And thinking on it, that is the lesson of the Three of Swords, heartbreak or sadness after the fact.  I will search and maybe find the card or come to the realization that gone is gone.

In the Details

Better the devil you know than the devil you don't

What a timely card for me today.  Later today I will be tested by clients that are dissatisfied with some portion of an up coming sale.  I gave them the most timely and appropriate information and they choose to ignore that advice which has now proven to be correct.  They want to act like victims and place their incorrect decision at my feet.  Sorry, not going to happen.  I have no sympathy left in me for the ones that want to attack, blame, and criticize instead of owning up to their part in
their decision.
The word lie is within the word devil.

On Guard

What others think of you is none of your business.

"I am able to laugh at life and at myself. I choose not to be offended by anything or anyone."  -quote from my daily affirmation calendar

I heard the top line in an on-line video; a  quote they used and one I have heard before. Between the card, the quote, and the affirmation I can pretty well bet that someone is going to say or do something that will try to diminish me.
It make me think of what another blogger Bev King mentioned in her recent post about meditation. That meditation makes us aware of the incessant chatter in the back of our mind that continues all day long.
For today I will be mindful and not allow another to make their troubles mine.

Movement

Everything and everybody is on their way somewhere.

When one draws two cards of movement I think I better 'get a move on.' We are all on are way somewhere; the journey is ours to choose.

Submerged

What lies beneath

It is those things that remain hidden that can do us in; that can get the best of us. Our hidden insecurities are the same, lurking just beneath the surface until something disturbs our fragile held balance and then whammo, self doubt and recriminations.  I guess that's the school of Life.  When we think we are finished with a lesson, the test proves that we need to do a little more work.

Kindred Spirit

Communion - come together

Communion and communicate share the same root word - com: come together. 
I was thinking of one of the clients I am working with, a younger gal about 25 and a first-time home buyer.  She mentioned the other day that she doesn't watch much tv and never watches the news. It reminded me of when I was about the same age and those much older worried about the daily events that were portrayed on the evening news, and I remembered that I never watched the news at that age and did just fine. The world goes on much the same now as then.  I think I will try to find more of what goes on around the world in communion with eagles and such.  There is so much more to do then sit and look at that idiot box. 
Just heard some Canadian Geese honking as they went by.  Now that is welcomed news, Spring must be getting closer.

Happy Feet

Do a little Dance

No major tsunami moment yesterday, and that calls for a little happy dance.

Go Figure

Tsunami - I am nuts

After shuffling and then drawing this card my thought 'oh crap.'  Tsunami - A wake up call, just what I need.  Then I saw an almost reversal of the spelling that results in 'I am nuts.'  Well heck I could have told you that.  Aren't we all just a little bit nutty?  I laughed thinking about that as the other day I had to have my laptop worked on and the tech said "no you are not crazy, as part of the discussion about what was not working with my loaded programs.  I turned to him and told him I was most certainly a bit crazy as I am 61 and entering my allowable eccentric years, but I was not 'nuts'.  Is there a difference? Maybe maybe not.  Maybe there will be a tsunami moment today and hopefully it is just a small wave action.

Quiescent

It is always darkest before dawn

This card almost feels like a portrait of Demeter, after her long wait of Persephone's return. 
At this time of year it almost feels like I am motionless, waiting for the return of Spring.  Winter has dragged on and I long to soak in the warmth of the Sun to take the deep chill from my bones.  The Earth begins her tilt and each day the Sun appears to stay aloft a minute or so more. Soon, Nature will cast off her brown blanket and give us the gift of Green.
I think today would be a good day to do some early Spring cleaning, maybe some clutter clearing to make way for the new that is coming.
