Which Moments Are Important?

Which Moments Are Important? And why?

Bleu Cat Tarot Four Of Fishes
Bleu Cat Tarot

Sometimes we think more about what we want than about what we have. I am at the mercy of the advertising world as the next person. Instead of enjoying the phone I have, I think about the phone I want.

In the Four of Fishes in Beth Seilonen’s Bleu Cat Tarot from Schiffer Mind, Body, Spirit, we see a cat looking at the fish heads in the three bowls. He’s not thinking about all the meat left. He’s thinking about all the meat that’s gone. Nor does he pay attention to the incoming bowl full of fish.

I am a firm believer that we have power over our mood. There’s a great quote that says “There are seven billion people in this world. Don’t let one ruin your day.”

Now don’t get me wrong. There are going to be moments of sad, of angry, of disappointed. But don’t make your whole life about those moments. Let your life be about the moments in between those moments.

[Tweet “Which moments are most important to you? Why?”]

Yeah, I get it. It’s not easy to do sometimes because it feels like those moments take over. But it comes back to choice. Which do you choose? Fight for your happy, your calm, your peace. Set up boundaries with signs that remind you that you are in charge of your own joy.

Be joy seekers y’all. Put that forward as the most important thing for each day. Professional joy seekers work at it. We make it our number one goal. Make it yours too. Together we can make it.

Today I choose joy. Today I accept that anger, sadness and fear pass as easily out of my life as they may into my life. Today I choose joy. I own my own happy. I am a professional joy seeker. Loved and loving, I am love.

Shhh, I’m reading Arwen’s weekly predictions. Have you read yours?

Card Of The Week: 8 of Wands indicates being aware of your choices. Don’t blame others for consequences based on what you do, dears.

I used Schiffer Publishing’s The Gorgon’s Tarot by Dolores Fitchie. This is a large round deck that features black and white images with hints of red here and there. It’s a striking deck.

  • AQUARIUS THE TOWER Careful, darlings. Something you cherish may come tumbling down. Be aware of what you are building on and with. Sand?
  • PISCES STRENGTH Lock your focus. Eschew distraction. Your will makes this work. Ignore the naysayers. You’ve so got this, fishies! Make it happen.
  • ARIES KING OF PENTACLES Um, who’s in charge of you, dear? Check the mirror for the answer. Manage your own world before taking on others.
  • TAURUS QUEEN OF PENTACLES Focus on nurturing you. Take care of those nagging physical needs. Time to relax is not indulgent. It’s necessary.
  • GEMINI THE HERMIT Share your knowledge with those who want to learn. Remove yourself from those who don’t. You can guide from afar. It’s okay.
  • CANCER ACE OF SWORDS Mental pursuits may be interrupted. Carve out time to honor your thinking space. You need to let that mine wander a bit.
  • LEO TEN OF WANDS Has your to-do list gotten out of hand? Do you have an elephant to eat now? One bite at a time. Also? Learn to say no. 😀
  • VIRGO FOUR OF CUPS Contemplating emotional isolation is all well and good. Still you might consider calling a friend up. Make a date! Do something.
  • LIBRA JUDGMENT A good time to examine spiritual/philosophical goals. The next level is here. Are you ready to rise up? Start climbing.
  • SCORPIO THE EMPRESS Paint. Write. Sculpt. Put your creative juices to work. Overflowing with idea this week. Make some of the happen.
  • SAGITTARIUS THE MOON Some of that light may be misleading. Please take a moment to reevaluate major decisions. Look under the rocks too.
  • CAPRICORN THE HIEROPHANT Spiritual pursuits lead you into the past. Explore your personal boundaries/rules. Break/change/reinforce. It’s up to you.

I hope you will join me for daily affirmations and musings as well.

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on!

Gorgons, Love & Affirmations

Today’s thought? Too much sturm and drang, baby. Too. Much. Everyone seems to be pissy–even me. I have caught myself being super judgmental and exceptionally mean these past few weeks.

So I pulled a card at random…

Today’s thought? Too much sturm and drang, baby. Too. Much. Everyone seems to be pissy–even me. I have caught myself being super judgmental and exceptionally mean these past few weeks.

So I pulled a card at random from The Gorgon’s Tarot by Dolores Fitch (Schiffer Publishing).

Whoop.There it is.

[Tweet “Speak love or speak not at all. That’s the phrase that came to me when I saw this card.”]

This is a round Tarot (kudos to Schiffer for producing a round Tarot since they are very hard to print from what I hear.) It is in black and white with some rare accents of red here and there.

The box is one of the things Schiffer does the best. Sturdy with a magnetic closure, this box is about the size of a hardback book. The cards and LWB nestle nicely inside.

I’m fascinated by the artwork because it reminds me a bit of the art of Zentangle which I indulge in.

This deck doesn’t shy away from unusual artistic interpretations while still holding on to tradition. Here we see the man and woman looking up at the spirit. Well, she’s looking but his eyes are cast toward her.

So only one of them is really getting the message. Sounds like more than one relationship, doesn’t it?

Communication is important. Right now, for me, communication with love as the message is more important. I’m going to do my best to sit on myself for one more week. I tend to get really cranky during Mercury Retrogrades (even when I don’t know they are coming!)

Affirmation for today:

I speak love. I repeat love. I stay open to love. I turn my ears away from meanness. I offer comfort when there is sadness. I offer peace when there is anger. Loved and loving, I love each of you. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.
