Fly, Fall & Bleed

Today’s card is painful to look at if you pay attention to it. Traditionally this is the card of the battle we go through that can lose us friends. But here it is a very different image.

Look at him hanging there. His hands are bleeding, for goodness sake. Doesn’t he know when to just let go? What is so important that he must cling so tenaciously?

Do you see the similarities to the Christ avatar here? Bleeding palms, head to the side. An almost peaceful look as though he knows what must come? Stevee Postman’s Cosmic Tribe Tarot has many cards that make me really dig in and think.

But why must that come? He’s not getting in, is he? He needs to let go of these thoughts that are hurting him. He must let go so he can heal.

What do we hold on to like this? What thought patterns are so embedded that, even though we know they are hurting more than helping, we still hold on to them?

Not a fun thought, is it? When I am real with myself, I realize that there are thoughts I hold on to that I must let go of. Some of them are “If I do that, I’ll fail” or “I can’t lose weight so I’ll just have another cookie” or “They’ll never choose me so I won’t try harder.”

Ick! Replace those sharp-edged thoughts with ones that don’t cut! Let’s try “If I do that, I’ll fly” and “I can lose weight because I make healthy choices” and “I get better every day because I’m an awesome person.”

Let go of the swords, darlings. You’re dripping on yourself. Need some physical reminders about better thoughts to hold on to? Check here. And let me know if you have anything else you would like to see there.

Kittens, Competition & Ethics

That other is reaching up to engage, but what about the third kitten who is looking up? He or she looks scared to me.

Today’s card reminds me that taking a leap shouldn’t be done at the expense of those around me. Traditionally this card is about competition–particularly the type that pits us against others. It’s pretty natural in our species (and others) to want to be Continue reading “Kittens, Competition & Ethics”

Dolphins, Diving & Bliss

Chase Your Bliss (Click for larger image)
Today’s card is one of my own making. I see it as the Seven of Cups. Too often we see our dreams pass us by or never come to fruition. Sometimes, as Frank Sinatra tells us, that’s life.

But how often is it because we stopped to get ready? Saw our bliss and made preparations. We paused to put on our tennis shoes. We waited to properly stretch (learn) so we didn’t hurt ourselves. We warmed up.

And all that time, our bliss was headed thataway!

Chase your bliss, darlings. Don’t hesitate. Don’t check to see if your shoe is tied. Just go for it. Leap in the water. Swim with dolphins. Dive with the pelicans. Graze with the manatees. Ground feed with the catfish.

I don’t care what you liken it to–just do it. Chase your bliss. Even if you don’t catch that dream, you’ll be moving so fast that when the next one comes by, it will catch up to you.

Want help chasing that bliss and catching it? I can help. And if you sign up for my newsletter, you’ll get a free book on how to read Tarot for yourself.

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.

Publicity, Perception & Passion

I am over 51 years old and have spent a lifetime calling myself names — fat, inadequate, broken. You name it. I probably called myself worse.

I’m sharing my Facebook posts here as well.

Today’s card is not a card. I want you to ask yourself a question. Do you have a publicist for your life? For the person you are? Or do you have a frenemy? And I’m not talking about some outsider. I’m talking about Continue reading “Publicity, Perception & Passion”
