Today’s card reminds me that I need to figure out why I’m in this hand basket and where I am going sometimes. Here is the chariot from Katie Rose Pipkin’s black and white Efflorescent Tarot. Sorry kids but it’s OOP unless she finds a publisher. Or at least that’s what I heard.
But I digress. See! It really is about focus with this card.
I’m tired tonight. It’s 11:11 pm by my clock. I should have had this done and been in bed an hour ago. But it’s full moon energy so I’m wound more than normal.
And am I ever normal?
I saw a GREAT quote on Facebook that said, “The day I broke up with normal was the first day of my magical life.”
Awesome isn’t it
But sometimes I lose my focus. I get scattered. I let the magic dissipate. I let normal drive again.
I fear the quirky.
I shun the weird.
I eschew the unusual.
And I’m not very happy when I do.
In a weird way, my life has a normal, for me, rhythm to it that involves talking to dogs and trees, reading cards for a living, writing intensely erotic romance, and chatting with Themselves.
That’s my normal.
I have to rein in both sides of me though. I can’t let avant-garde Arwen outstrip stable Stephanie. Or is that analytical Arwen overpower sassy Stephanie? Either way, both sides have to be moving together to take me in my chariot where I want to go.
Oh how I ramble. Do you ever wonder how I start out at point A and end up at point WTF?
So here is the Chariot. Traditionally a card of mastering one’s life. I would say that the charioteer will never be happy until she is following her own lead. When she tries to be what someone else wants is when the problems start. That’s when she drops the reins and her two selves can squabble about who gets to lead.
Equally yoked. It’s all about keeping both sides equally yoked.
So what’s your normal look like? Take 180 seconds…just three minutes…to journal about that your normal is. The only ground rule is that you can’t compare your normal to anyone else’s.
Because it’s your normal!
