This or That

Juggling Act

The Two of Pentacles is always a pretty straightforward card.  Juggling two things at a time, or maybe two choices to consider.  My mind started to wander just now and maybe this princess is a selkie.  The time has come for her to choose to stay on dry land or return to the sea in the background.
Today I may be faced with choice, each with benefits and drawbacks, and the advice this card offers is to weigh both options before choosing.

Significator

Its okay to be okay with yourself,

The Queen of Pentacles, my chosen significator. Whenever she makes an appearance I know that something significant usually happens on those days.  Outwardly seemingly confident and secure, those still waters run pretty deep.  Reflecting on yesterdays post of the underlining program we received in childhood, I like money, always have.  Even as a young girl I worked so I could make money. Paper routes, babysitting, corn-detasseling, then finally Sixteen and I could work real jobs.  And there were the naysayers saying wealth and abundance, were and are a sign of greed, one of the seven deadly sins.  So my relationship with money has been tumultuous.
My affirmation today: "I have a great relationship with money, it loves me and fills my pockets." -quoted from my Hay House calendar.    So today I am putting coins in both of my pockets and jingle-jangle them all day.

Tradition

Remember where you came from

I am who I am in part from the things I have learnt from my parents and family.  Those early days are the foundational  footprint of who I am, and that is part of the struggle.  My parents way of life was based on their parent, based on their parents and so on back.  A part of my operating system is obsolete.  I have spent the better part of my life time trying to over-write their programming.
Tradition, some good and some not so good and the not so good needs to be replaced with updated versions.

Reminder

As the World turns

I needed this card today as a reminder that the World turns.  Everything that has a beginning has an ending.  I noticed the images of Winter and Spring at the top and bottom of the World.  Here we are in the deep freeze.  Two weeks of below freezing weather, some ice and snow, and now it seems we are heading for a few days of sub freezing temps and wind chill below zero. Thankfully Spring always follows Winter and Winter's grip will soon lose it's hold.

Ah-hah

Lets take it out for a test drive

Yesterday the Queen of Staves(wands) was deeply focused on her wand at hand, today she has taken it out into the world.  An ah-hah moment needs to be shared, even if it is with pen and paper for us to remember it down the line.  Like some dreams, so vivid and poignant that we are sure we will remember, then upon waking later in the morning those wisps of images are dissipated not to be remembered.

Awareness

The Eyes have it

It is curious to me that this queen, Queen of Wands, with all her energy and outgoing nature, does not look straight out at me.  I went through the deck and only the Page of Cups of the Court cards looks straight out at us.  There are just a few Majors with a direct gaze as well.   In sales I always look directly at  the people I am spending time with and it has become habit with most everyone in my day to day.   I guess she has become so fascinated with her wand in hand, that everything else fades to the background.   For advice today I am thinking - don't get to caught up in myself and forget what is going on around me.

Revisitation

No Choice is a choice.


When given a choice and neither feels right, I take the third option and just walk away.  Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda... Hindsight is usually 20/20.

Something in yellow

Fruits of one's labor

In yesterday's card it was practice, practice, practice, and once perfected it is absolutely okay to enjoy and celebrate the fruits of one's labor. This King sits comfortably with his coin knowing he worked for it; he won't let others take that from him.
On a side note, I do not like men that think it is okay to go everywhere without a shirt on, especially to the dinner table.  Yuck.  At home (not at the dinner table) or at the beach is one thing, but otherwise put on a t-shirt .  I guess this king's Queen told him to at least don a toga.  Still in today's world any kind of garb goes, and there seems to be much less fabric on just about everyone.  Not very kingly or queenly of them.

Time well spent

Practice Practice Practice

There are days when I pull a card from one of the decks that all kinds of magic, myth, and or mayhem may present themselves.  People, places, situations that intrigue and fascinate.  Then there are days that nothing much seems to be happening and others when you don't even want to make a draw.  What I do know is, that with practice and consistent time spent with my cards and continued reading of others blogs and books on Tarot and Oracles I have come to a better understanding of the Art and realize that there is still more to learn.  As with any craftsman practice makes perfect.

Optimsm

Here comes the Sun

What is not to love about drawing The Sun card.  Bright and cherry is the order of the day. 
I noticed in the last week or so that the tilt of The Sun is changing, especially noticeable in morning and evening when the pitch is just enough to a make driving a challenge.  Yay!

I was glancing over a few books and Janina Renee in her book TAROT YOUR EVERYDAY GUIDE, suggests that you might look at your astrological Sun Sign and see what attributes we might reclaim to unlock sources of energy and happiness.  So happens that I was born in the sign of Capricorn that is where the Sun is placed currently in Astrology.  So I think I will read up on some of my Sun Sign

Who are you; who who, who who

To thine ownself be true...

I don't often draw The Lovers or in this case Love.  I think Love was originally the name for this card and possibly more suited.  When I bought this deck I was enchanted with this card and The Star card and kept both out on my altar for long periods of time.  Something about this woman that speaks to self sufficiency and being okay with oneself.  I especially was taken with the puppy as her companion.
Many people look at this card and rush to thinking of finding true love but I think that is more the Two of Cups.  Following the Emperor and the Hierophant and their harsh disciplines I think Love and Lovers is more of healing and recognizing we are okay with who and what we are. Finding our place without the direction and control of others.   More of Self-Love.

Friends

Ah I miss my mermaid sisters

A year ago today I was flying back from Florida.  This card reminds me of my mermaid friends of ocean deep.  I had a couple of friends move to Florida, way down the coast and they called yesterday to let me know they were having dinner outside at a local pub and telling me to get on jet a come visit.  After this two week blast of Old Man Winter who wouldn't want to be in the warm sunshine. 
I wonder what it would take for me to become my mermaid self?

Sigh

The deep pause


Have you ever experienced that moment of a deep pause.  Something significant is about to happen.  Even the Universe seems to still for a brief instant.
