Rapunzel.

This image of the tower reminded me of the story of Rapunzel. It has many interpretations I am sure but the one that strikes me at this point is of the struggle for the unattainable. It starts with Rapunzel's parents who long for a child and then steal the fruit from the witch's garden, the …

Fear makes courage.

Confrontation - wanting to, being able to, and not drowning in guilt after - is something I have been working on for some time now. I have been telling myself that I'm a zen person, that I like to walk the path of peace but the reality is that I'm quite a phatoo when it …

~ January 2019 ~

January being the first month carries with it the energy of the number 1. There is a newness in the air, of starting afresh, of new possibilities, a sense of rejuvenation. January also brings with it a sense of urgency, of getting started quickly, which is what the Knight of Swords represents. He's the kind of guy who goes charging ahead towards his goals.

Conflict and anger.

If you were in a conflict or had a fight with someone yesterday and have woken up feeling all bad and guilty, the cards want you to know that it's okay, some battles need to be fought. Sometimes you need to raise your voice to be heard. Don't shy away from anger because if you …

Loss & Change.

Death comes to all of us in one form or another. Death or Change, in Tarot both are considered the same. For change to occur something must end for something new to begin. My heart goes out to you if you are experiencing a loss of someone or something you love. It could be a …

Go with the flow.

It's a good day to travel, especially if you are heading to a watery place. It is also a good day to flow into whatever you are doing rather than struggle through it. If you felt the effects of the moon changing phases, then you've already had a bad night and are operating at a …

The circle of life.

We know this, we see this all around us, the interconnectedness of all things, the continuum of life, of birth and death. All things are born and all things die. Some are long lived and some spark only briefly. The circle is here to remind us that we are meant to to come to an …

Conflict is my teacher.

A compromise can be when both parties feel that they won or when both parties feel that they lost. The way to make the former happen is to remind yourself that everyone has their own version of reality, which may not agree with your version. They are just being true to their interests and priorities, …

Should I go or should I stay?

Looks like it's going to be an interesting day today.  The only way I can read these two cards together is 'should I stay or should I go?'. This can be a big life question - should I leave this job or should I leave this relationship? It can also be the small stuff that …

If there is this thought that is buzzing around in your mind, take it to it's conclusion and tell yourself '...and that's all right'. For eg. The …

Breaking patterns.

It's the last week of September (a number 9 month, which is about releasing what doesn't serve), so it's not surprising that these cards chose to come out. When an Ancestor card appears trials and challenges are not far behind. Quite a process is involved in breaking a pattern or condition that has been with …

September 15. Co-operation.

Whatever comes up today, make sure that you take into account the others thoughts, feelings and views into account. The situation is interwoven with people other than yourself and by taking them into account you have a far surer way to get what you want. You can proceed with strife but it will alienate those …
