Pirates, Soothsayers + Insanity

WakingTheWildSpirit_14Cups001Today’s card made me look up a word. I wanted to know more about what it meant. One word in the first definition just rankled my cockles. Sorry, but it IS Talk Like A Pirate day. 😀 I’ll spare you from translating the whole thing, matey, but there will be bits as we go.


So as I was saying…there was a word in the definition of soothsayer that made me twitch. “Supposed” as in “a person supposed to be able to foresee the future.”

That makes it seem as if it is the reader’s fault if the currents they see today in your reading change tomorrow.

I’ve got two words for you.


Just because I see you getting that desired interview today doesn’t mean you won’t do something between now and then to change the outcome.

Patterns are in our lives for a reason. We create grooves, gouges, ruts that we stay in. We don’t move out of them.

Why? Because they are familiar. And darlings, I mean mateys, familiar isn’t always good. Just because you are making a killing on the bounding main today doesn’t mean you won’t need to put your self into dry dock tomorrow.

Don’t let anyone–not a doctor, not a teacher, not a parent, not a psychic–tell you that you can’t change your future.

Of course you can. That’s why my clients know a reading with me creates homework for them. They need to take stock of actions they are currently involved in. Sure they can continue as is, but, things will not change until they change.

Do you know who said this?

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

My fellow Pisces Albert Einstein dropped that little gem.

So on this Pisces Full Moon, let’s use this as our journal prompt.

“What insanity in my life can I change and how?”
