This is a compilation of my #tarotforecast (daily draw) posts on instagram, for ease of viewing and posterity (should IG ever go tits-up). I use a different deck every week and make the spreads up as I go. Sometimes it’s a single-card draw, sometimes it’s more, and I always try to make it visually interesting and meaningful in some way. I’ve never been able to stick to a daily draw schedule, but this has made it much more enticing to me plus it’s a great way to actually use my decks (and get to know the new guys)!
WEEKs OF JUly 1-27 : Vertigo, World Goddess Oracle, Hello Kitty
okay! day 1 of #julydeedee and we have • KLEXOS : what piece of your past do you need to let go of? #aceofwands – shiiiiiit. all the things i started, but never finished. so appropriate that this is the element of creativity and that divine paintbrush goes right through the hand #ouchyouchouchOUCH #embracefailure #EMBRACEIT • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #morgana – “i end so that i may begin.” shiiiiiiiieeettt. taking a creative/sorcerous approach to healing in order to facilitate rebirth. immediately thought of antonio machado’s poem “last night as i lay sleeping” – … and the golden bees were making white combs and sweet honey from my old failures. • how to be kind about it : #queenofpentacles – quit dismissing all that you /have/ accomplished. grandma kitty is all about support and nurturing and she will tell everyone how amazing her baby is #hereletmegetmyphotoalbums :D
day 2 of #julydeedee looking at • SONDER : how can you be more in tune with the world? #justice – *pained noises* well if you stop being such a JUDGY MCJUDGERSON (of yourself too!!) in pursuit of some imagined sense of justice in the world, /maybe you’d be able to see past your righteous anger/ #youarenotasuperhero #saveyourselffirst • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #hohsiengku – “open the lotus of your heart” honestly didn’t even have to look this one up to know what the message would be. i am reminded of how #anubis weighs the hearts of the dead – i make my own heart heavier with this sorrow, and then i add the weight of the world on top of it! need to put ol’ pumpy on a diet #getlessswole #antigainz • how to be kind about it : #death – morty comes for everyone and they are very good at their job; your help is not needed. also, gtf over it already.
day 3 of #julydeedee is something very near and dear to my racing heart • JOUSKA : how can you stop the cycle of anxiety caused by living in the future? #9ofcupsps – took me a few moments to let the correct answer float to the surface, but this about fear of lack. and just fear, when you get down to it. i have 2 little cross stitches to remind me of these truths – “i survived” and “there is enough”. #mypoorbrain #casualtyofcircumstance • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #amaterasu – “do not be afraid to shine” or, gtfo your cave and remember your forgotten beauty; don’t let the petty destructions of others cause you to retreat into darkness (these goddesses mang. everyday they’re relating directly back to the first card, in image and meaning. i mean, amaterasu is solar and look at the “sun” in the 9C!) • how to be kind about it : #10ofswords – there is no being kind. some things just need to die.
day 4 of #julydeedee is an issue i – and i’m sure most people – struggle with • ZENOSYNE : how can you become more connected to “now”? #6ofpentacles – don’t honestly understand this card here, but am drawn to the reflected halves of the picture and the exchange happening between them. perhaps this references back to yesterday’s urging to /interact/? (3 wands jumpers & wands shadow card O_O) • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #nekhbet – “i circle over and protect you” so yes, the idea of interacting and being safe to do so. the past doesn’t directly affect /ME/; the future doesn’t directly affect /ME/; the present now… you can’t /not/ be affected by that! • how to be kind about it : #thecharriot – carpe that diem bish!
I thought day 5 of #julydeedee might be almost ~*fun*~ but the cards showed me! • LACHESISM (from lachesis – one of the moirai, who measures the mengrh of your thread/life) : what is your secret disaster fantasy? #8ofpentacles – that my work/art will destroy me. so classically tragic, right? to lose myself to the muse and die penniless and syphillitic in a frozen garret while rats feast on my soft pink bits. eh fuckoff wi’ ye! (i will give it to myself that this is based on experience so) note that there is a progression from light to dark, reminding me of yesterday’s /contrasting/ light and dark. TRANSMUTATION is what pops into my head. • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #lilith – “it is a lie!” yuuuuuuppP but the lies we tell ourselves are the most powerful. queen of dark fears here, directly related to the act of /creation/. how many projects have i aborted? how many have i killed in their infancy? also maybe invest in some fucking chill, you wide-eyed maniac. • how to be kind about it : #temperance – easy does it… ease into all things, letting the light and dark move over (and through) you in their natural cyclical flow #chilllll
on the 7th day of #julydeedee my true love gave to meeee • VEMÖDALEN : what are you avoiding because you fear you won’t match up? #7ofwands – don’t have to be psychic to know i’d get a wands card here! it always comes back to the creative expression of my true self. so appropriate then that the face is blurry and distorted – along with being loathe to reveal myself, I’m even reticent to FACE myself on this level. i /want/ to be better, to own it, but my crown only has one burning flame and that just doesn’t. match. up. (funny #notfunny that the rws 7W is also about battling others, even if the battle is all in my head.) • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #sif – the most famous story about sif also revolves around the head : the crowning glory of her hair. BUT! when she lost her “mortal” hair, it was replaced by something even more beautiful and “divine”. mundane becomes magical – the very transmutation power of art #ilugoddessoracle • how to be kind about it : #death – well duh. cutcutCUTTTTINGYOUR(metaphorical)HAIR!!!!!! #montypython #nerdalert
#julydeedee day 6. i can feel my boundaries stripping away. my heart becoming lighter. my soul ready to take flight… lol jk my sorrows are made of stronger stuff than that! emoji • OPIA : what are you afraid of revealing to others? #aceofcups – AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA the deep well of emotion within me. • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #aidawedo – “integration creates integrity” embrace your emotions, rather than locking them in a box at the bottom of the ocean #youthinkimjoking (do you see what this deck did? a water goddess to support a water card! that’s its trademark move) • how to be kind about it : #queenofpentacles – coming back for seconds is very greedy miss queeny. and what do you mean, momma kitty? realise that it’s “safe” to feel, rather than conceal? USE YOUR WORDS YOU SMUG FELINE!!
day 8 of #julydeedee is a reasonably gentle question and the cards replied accordingly • CHRYSALISM : where do you find your quiet comfort? #thestar – this depiction of the star is a titch darker than most : hope, but hope tinged with despair; healing, but healing that’s painful; relief and rest, but only permitted if the preceding disaster is utterly devastating. #ebonydarknessdementiaravenway #fuckme • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #nut – “i will make a home for my children in this world” /she did it again/ – nut, the sky goddess, paired with the star!! my children, in this case, would be my hopes. nut signals a pause for reflection to let things incubate, also very much like the “safe zone” of the star. • how to be kind about it : #queenofwands – the QW doesn’t believe in “hope” because she doesn’t believe in anything less than guaranteed success. /and so should you/.
totally not a bad 80s tv reference for #julydeedee day 9 ;) • NIGHTHAWK : what nighthawk (“pecking” thought) do you need to tame & tether? #5ofwands – who’s as surprised as me to see a wands card, huh? HUH?? #totesnotsurprised time’s a wastin’ tick tock buttercup you’re doing sweet eff all with your life and your abilities just burning all that shit up like it’s free you could be something but noooo little miss scaredypants mclazyarse III would rather dwell on the pain of the past and cry about how /difficult/ it is and use her flame to burn herself instead of putting it to good fucking use good job well done you might as well quit now and spare yourself the slow death you seem so committed to #imawesome #selflovecity #populationme • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #mamanbrijit – “i will guide you and protect you on your difficult journeys” #nuffsaid maman will drag all your faux scary shit kicking and screaming into the light. /nobody/ argues with maman! • how to be kind about it : #sun – creatures of the night can’t exist in the bold, bright, beautiful light of day #oogieboogiemanbegone #woulditkillyatogooutside
#julydeedee day 10 personal relationships?? i don’t need no stinkin’ personal relationships ;D • ADRONITIS : where do you need to exercise patience in your personal relationships? #thestar – hello again, disturbingly decapitated & armless celestial maiden #ihavenomouthbuticanscream umm high expectations… TOO high expectations… GDI obviously i need some help here!! oh! stars are distant, detached and #headlesssallythearmlesswonder here couldn’t be more detached if she tried! • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #vesta – lady of the flame and hearth is the icon of hospitality. let them in, basically. let your fire be warm and comforting, not cold and distant. • how to be kind about it – #highpriestess let the right one in #bewareofvampires
#julydeedee day 11 and i’m temporarily out of witty commentary • RIGOR SAMSA : what false armour have you constructed for yourself? #aceofwands – /we meet again/ (day 1) “i’m an artist” but “i can’t for [x reason]”. i wear the sorrows and pain my art has brought me as a shield against trying again, because i’ve been burned too many times. too many. so i’ll start it, but there’ll be a reason not to finish… • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #athena – good luck portraying yourself falsely to she who sees clearly even in the darkest night (and has a little something to do with artistry and invention). see yourself as she would see you. • how to be kind about it – #thesun hello kitty is bound and determined to beat the shadows out of me forcefully! cut the crap, /sunshine/, and let your dim light shine
back to #julydeedee day 12 after a little creativity break • OCCHIOLISM : where do you need to broaden your perspective? #justice – welllllll i guess i can’t argue with that. the hanging judge is my head is a bit of a hardass # butthistownhasneverbeenmorerighteois • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #faerie – the word “faerie” derived from “fata”, fate. justice is part of the natural order of things and will happen of its own accord. like the many shades of green in the realm of faerie, there are many shades of grey #howmanyshades? in between right and wrong. • how to be kind about it? #6ofpentacles – relax and focus on the small part of the experience that you can actually lay claim to, and make it the best thing it can be.
digging in the past for #julydeedee day 13 • KEYFRAME : what unremarkable moment from you past are you unaware defined who you are now? #aceofcups – i got nada. it can’t be about lurrrve, because it has to be something i’m UNaware of. i really didn’t think this through, did i?! #genius • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #kirke – (who just *happens* to be holding a cup against a watery background) SORCERY!! she says, “i hold open the door to darkness” – how you choose to manipulate that darkness is your choice. • how to be kind about it? #3ofpentacles – realise it takes a long time to master /anything/, including healing, but the end result speaks for itself.
#julydeedee day 14 with 2 repeating cards! • YU YI : what can you do to reinvigorate how experiences affect you? #aceofcups – AC basically says to allow myself to be submerged in experiences as they happen #thankstips #sohelp #veryenlighten • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #nekhbet – vultures can soar and hover for hours, but when they come down to earth, they get /right in there/. don’t be afraid to get covered in the “mess”. • how to be kind about it? #aceofcups (#9ofswords) – the AC was a #triplejumper but i was bound and determined to get another card! got the 9S but /the ace was the following card/. can you feel the side eye? CAN YOU??
#julydeedee day 15 and a new contender for the title of #stalkercard enters the the ring 😏 • MIMEOMIA : what stereotype do you unwillingly fit? #aceofcups – yeeeep. and the next card was the #aceofwands. #torturedartist with a heaping side order of #issues and #internalconflict it is! • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #aluzza – (#triplejumper) her message is “shine like a star”, and as she represents confidence, vigilance and preparation, ties in well with… • how to be kind about it? #9ofwands – … who is getting prepared for something! i feel like this card and the AC are Rx energies, telling me to let my guard down. not even necessarily with the world, but with myself. maybe everything doesn’t have to be “prepared” to within an inch of its life – shit gets tiring.
#julydeedee day 16 and PRAISE TAROT JESUS NOT THE ACE OF CUPS 🙌 • FITZCARRALDO : what unexpressed vision keeps you up at night? #thedevil – all the shit i never did? the epic urban adult fantasy whatever-the-fuck we’re calling thinly disguised smut now? me as queen of hell? #unexpressedvisions #ivegotafew though… visions of being /FREE/ (as an end result of these secondary visions) is probably more like it #womaninchains • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #momoy – literally, wash your hands of it, especially combined with the 8C. bedtime is for sleeping, not torturing yourself. momoy is also associated with datura – a narcotic – and seeing “new research” shows ibuprofen caused heart problems and i kinda sorta rely on it to be able to sleep… • how to be kind about it? #8ofcups – yeah, build a bridge and get over it. don’t look back either; you don’t want no pillar of salt action going on.
can’t ignore the #telltaleheart any longer – the only way forward is through! #julydeedee day 17 – • RUBATOSIS : what aspect of self-awareness unsettles you? #7ofwands – telling that the face in this card is out of focus and distorted… i don’t quite understand it – except for the crown of brushes – but there, too, the meaning is a hazy thing at the back of my mind. • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #erzulie – “love is faith.” erzulie is love and passion that is so large, it can barely be contained – all you can do is surrender to it. perhaps this speaks to the traditional orneryness of the 7W – stop fighting and /give in/? • how to be kind about it? #thefool – #whysoserious? if it absolutely has to be all-or-nothing, would “nothing” be such a foolish choice?
wel, well, well. you just can’t make this shit up. #julydeedee day 18 – • GNASCHE : what do you love so intensely that you wish to devour it? #pageofswords – #triplejumper over here [and my old significator] was really determined to be noticed. ngl i lovelovelove knowing things. i’m not even that fussy – i soak it up like a desperate, horny, #thirsty sponge. • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #kali – the DEVOURER. sooo, don’t stop, just keep at it, is what you’re saying? • how to be kind about it? #pageofswords – i ask you. /seriously/. #turndownforwut
#julydeedee day 19 – • ANECDOCHE : what are you not hearing because you won’t stfu & listen? #aceofwands – LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #greentara – “let me help you with that!” #lolsob • how to be kind about it? #theempress – #LOLSOB okay, jokes aside, this whole reading is saying i need to really lay off being so impatient and unkind with myself when it comes to the AW – my creative desires – and to embrace compassion and nurturing instead. why not, right? it’s not as if beating myself up for 30+ years has done any good.
#julydeedee day 20 – • EXULANSIS : what is your private, unrelateable experience? #4ofpentacles – i can only think that, because 4 is a number of stability and foundation (and money), that this about my family having to relocate for my father’s job when i was 5. it is the root of everything that went wrong in my life, on every level. • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #nut – my intuition is saying this is about finding a way to comfort the me who suffered this loss, and /still/ suffers this loss. i have to find a way to work the magic necessary to cheat time (the 5 extra days created to allow nut & geb to procreate) and sever or integrate or change that time of my life. • how to be kind about it? #9ofpentacles – this relates back to the 4P. the loss i suffered was such an intense psychological event, that it has set up a permanent sense/fear of lack in my psyche. the 9P suggests constantly reminding myself that #thereisenough
#julydeedee day 21 • ANEMOIA : what perceptions are tethering you to a fasle past? #5ofcups – it always comes down to loss (weren’t we just dealing with this yesterday?) but evidently, the loss is not as great as i make it out to be in my head. • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #sengen – “trust not in the surface; there are many layers and perceptions” WELP. (i’m also getting a strong snow white vibe from this card : lips as red as blood; skin as white as snow; hair as black as ebony. loss of home, family & stability at a young age.) • how to be kind about it? #queenofcups – a well-adjusted QC does indeed have a well-adjusted longview on events with a strong emotional impact. she knows how to be kind with herself, but she doesn’t allow herself to wallow. loss happens; you deal and don’t let it define you or your future.
#julydeedee day 22 • DAGUERREOLOGUE : what one questions would you like your past self to answer? (what would they say?) #pageofswords (#5ofwands) – wow. ummm, how did you become such a /bitch/? BECAUSE I GD HAD TO. #ifyoucantjointhem #beatthem • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #nekhbet – vultures eat dead things. the past is dead. your past self is dead along with it. eat it up and allow it to fuel your growth. • how to be kind about it? #pageofswords – double PgS just like day 18 O.O use the same ability to cut things that no looger serve you out of your life on this thing #maybeitstoolate #lolsorry
#julydeedee day 23 happening in real time again *high fives self* • KUEBIKO : what force that you cannot control causes you unnecessary exhaustion? #9ofswords – it’s not so much one thing, as it is all the minor things i like to wrap up as special little sharp-edged gifts for myself to discover in the darkest hours, you know, when i can’t see clearly and am guaranteed to fumble and cut myself to ribbons unamused #metaphorsRus • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #kwanyin – “love all” i admit that a lot of those little “gifts” revolve around (largely misplaced) guilt and shame over trivial things that were – and are – out of my control. a touch of compassion for my self would go a long way. • how to be kind about it? #kingofswords – the KgS is hardly the type to waste his time with imagined terrors and wasteful emotions. these readings keep emphasizing a severing of dead limbs, as it were, cutting to heal, rather than hurt. (loving how the colours in the cards continue to support each other!)
#julydeedee day 24 iiiiiiiiiis… • HEARTWORM : what heartworm is eating you alive from the inside out? #4ofcups – passivity (as a result of fear) in my relationships. yuppp. one in particular – which i /am/ over TYVM – but there’s always the twinge of regret that goes with being a passive “participant” in your own life story. • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #yemaya – “don’t be afraid to visit me in the depths”. soooo what’s funny is that, in previous shadow work i’ve done, that part/s of me – the broken, sad, afraid, angry etc. part – actually lives deep in the ocean. i went down there many times to comfort and console those girls. • how to be kind about it? #kingofcups – exercise a certain level of emotional detachment/objectivity; don’t get sucked under. revisiting old hurts doesn’t mean /reliving/ them. WOW. could there /be/ more water in this spread??
#julydeedee day 25 (gettin’ there!) • MONACHOPSIS : where do you need to get over yourself? #3ofcups – this one eluded me until BAM! /relationships/, and the trouble i have in forming them. it made even more sense when i looked back at the full challenge description for this prompt : “the subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place”, or, /third wheel/. • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #kybele – “i have deep roots” kybele’s essence is an untamed wildness, so maybe being less reserved? (anyone who knows me is dying of laughter right now; no one believes that i’m actually extremely shy and introverted… until i get to know you smiling_impsmiling_impsmiling_imp) • how to be kind about it? #2odwands – baby steps. just put yourself out there a little bit at a time, and see what comes back
sooo it’s september 8th… sounds like it’s about time for #julydeedee day 26 #imgoodatfinishingthings • LETHOBENSOS : what important relationship has slipped your mind? #5ofwands • what energy to employ to comfort this sorrow : #idun – “i am ancient and young” • how to be kind about it? #pageofpentacles these cards seem to form a whole; a pictorial narrative : the 5W holds up its personal flames to the world, but then idun turns her back on this, holding her 5 apples to her chest – not selfishly, but as if she’s trying to protect them. then the PgP shows their wealth again (round, like an apple) – just a piece at a time – and it’s giving off rays that look like sound waves; broadcasting. a little bird flies in, bringing a bank note ? it seems like i can’t refer to this suit of wands as anything other than my art, but again, it feels distinctly creative. /my fire/ (whether that’s art or other creative activities). i have definitely withdrawn that from the world – protecting myself as much as my work – and the only way to heal the hurt is to let it out again!
new week = new #tarotdeck for #tarotforecast and it’s about damnhellfine time i let the #lightgreytarot do its thing! while shuffling, the deck inspired me to create a #3cardspread aimed at exploring facets of creativity : we call it the lightbulb spread emoji consider this : #10ofswords – releasing old ideas implementation : #pageofwands – new creative directions application : #3ofswords – healing old wounds of the psyche (#quintessence is #morty! that’s the stuff :D)
#lightbulbspread emoji for #tarotforecast again today and just… you’ll see :| consider this : #10ofswords – consider this, #lightgreytarot; consider i leave you in the rain, or throw you in the river, or /both/ #allmydecksaredicks implementation : #6ofwands – like, chill man, hug a tree, or like, a /log/ maybe #mylogdoesnotjudge application : #thedevil – cross-sum of 6. isn’t that nice. so once i get over being a tortured artist and make peace with being the #loglady then i can finally assume my rightful place as #queenofhell. #orsomething. (#shadowcard was #morty. DON’T TELL ME YOU’RE IN ON THIS TOO OLD BUDDY OLD PAL >:[)
i advised the #lightgreytarot that if it wants to #FIGHTME, #WECANGO the result is this #lightbulbspread which is about 30 watts at best :| consider this : #hierophant – be yourself; be the best “you” you can be! #birthcard implementation : #thesun – by being happy and joyful and positive! application : #wheeloffortune – to handle all of life’s ups and downs like a pro! #WHYAREYOUTESTINGME
so an interesting thing happened in this #tarotforecast #lightbulbspread emojithe #lightgreytarot – i split the deck, but another section broke away. i set these cards to one side, turned and interpreted the “official” draw, and then went back to see what the 2nd pile had to say. lo and behold if they didn’t have the same message! consider this : #3ofwands / #8ofcups – explore new horizons implementation : #6ofcups / #thefool – by recapturing a fearless/innocent sense of adventure (the fool carries flowers!) application : #5ofcups / #thehermit – to break out of your rut (both characters are hooded!) this is much better behaviour, i must say, even though the deck still seems to be pretty adamant that i need to #srslygetovermyself XD
well, well, /well/. what do we have here? oh, /another/ #10ofswords in my #tarotforecast with the #lightgreytarot? fancy that >:[ obviously one lightbulb isn’t enough illumination, so i brought three to this #lightbulbspread consider this : #10ofswords – et tu, brute? implementation : #7ofpentacles – bodies make nice fertilizer #justsaying application – #knightofswords – two can keep a secret if one of them is dead ^_^
good news everybody! i figured out what message the #lightgreytarot has been trying so desperately to get me to understand :) it started with remembering that this is a collective deck… collective… community… hippies… IT’S A CULT! and just look : #2ofswords – #4ofcups – #thefool become initiated into the sisterhood of our ladies of levitation, drink the doowacky kool-aid to bust your third eye W I D E open and just like travel the world maaaaan like free your miiiiind (and the rest will follow) #cheers #seeyouontheflipside
back to #tarotforecast readings with the #universalwirth. i can expect to feel the influence of the #6ofswords internally and #kingofwands externally, with the overall theme of the day being #thehermit. my prediction? it’s going to be another hot day (but reduced temps because the king has conquered the lion) and i’m going to wish i could have stayed in my cave, away from the irritations that will inevitably besiege me. most likely i will continue to feel queasy and unbalanced – and somewhat moody as a result – due to the extremes in weather.
#tarotforecast with the #universalwirth predicts i will feel all #10ofcups #happyhappyjoyjoy on the inside, while things will continue to tick nicely along like the #7ofcoins on the outside. overall i can expect the day to be filled with #bluebirds and flowers and butterflies and general #5ofcups peaceful introspection. i think the deck is just too scared to tell me that it’s going to feel like a 15 drinks kinda day! (though now that i think of that… stay 10C silver goblets hydrated or you’ll feel 5C dry wooden cups dehydrated?)
#welp friends, it’s been fun, but as you can see from this #tarotforecast – yesterday might have been the day of COPEious drinking, but today’s the day i finally crack and start ripping heads off, before blessedly escaping this mortal coil and floating to the heavens, free as a butterfly emoji just a heads up : many of you are on my “to haunt” list so when the lights start flickering… *waves* internal : #thetower (definite mundane physical possibility) external : #strength (here too) overall theme : #aceofcups (drink sum moar)
well la and lol @ this #tarotforecast! so today is all about needing to make careful decisions and smart choices #thelovers while wanting to make ALL THE BAD CHOICES. /ALL OF THEM/ #thedevil couldn’t ask for a more obvious two-sides-of-the-same-coin card combo! happily, it appears that cool #kingofswords heads will prevail and heart and head (watery swords) will come to an amicable compromise and they’ll both be happy fish :D so it’s tea instead of coffee, and maybe don’t eat chips right out of the bag… ?
i’m spotting a pattern in the daily #tarotforecast with the #universalwirth : it seems invested in my physical being, which i would never expect from such an #esoteric system! the #4ofswords and #4ofwands are an uneasy pairing – water vs fire, circle vs square – but the central pointiness they both display is key. between the wheat and the swords, i get the message of intestinal issues (bloating, cramping). the crescent moons on the 4S are repeated in the #vesicapiscis of the day’s theme of #theworld, as is the lion on the 4W (he even pairs directly up with his buddy!) and finally there is the red drapery that binds the wreath and flows around the woman.
no props today because tbqh i have no iDEA what the #universalwirth is trying to tell me in this #tarotforecast – or any of them! each day it seems to be the same message : balance/choice. each day i think i have it pinned down, but i don’t. the #2ofswords (internal) shows one sword plunging into the depths of a stormy sea, while another surges out. the #10ofswords (external) shows one sleepy moon below the surface (subconscious) with an awake/conscious moon above. the daggers on the 10S are the same dagger that appears on #thechariot, the overall theme for the day (and of course the charioteer has those moon epaulettes). so i sit here, not knowing what i’m supposed to balance or choose or get control of! :?
hmmm it’s almost as if they’re trying to tell me something… XD this is a #tarotspread about my #tarotforecast draws this week. bottom row is summary for internal, theme, external, with top row as clarifiers for these. that’s a LOTTA WANDS!! #babysonfire #betterthrowherinthewater intuitively, these cards are confirmation that i’ve come home #7ofcups to my inspiration again #10ofwands and am working with the creative beast-within #strength #kingofwands when burning hot like this, there is always the caution against going too far too fast #knightofwands and burning the candle at both ends #9ofwands. #quintessence for this #tarotreading is #thechariot – repeat of today’s theme!
Week of May 29 : infinity
time for a little #VnV with the #infinitytarot and first up is patience #pageofwands and wrath #6ofcups : i express patience when it comes to focusing on things that truly inspire me, able to devote intense, burning energy to bring them to life. i give in to wrath when dealing – or not dealing! – with [a whole mess of personal emotions and stuff]. to balance the two i need to look to #theworld. i am drawn to her similarities to the kgtw : 2 batons, legs spread, and there is explosive energy in the clouds behind her. less dwelling on the past that (i allow to) hold me back, more focused action!
exploring #temperance #8ofcups and #gluttony #kingofcups in this #VnV with the #infinitytarot : it is telling that these are both “emotion” cards! i express temperance – a certain distance – when examining my emotions #queenofswords they run hard and deep and would be overwhelming if i didn’t keep them nicely arranged and catalogued on a shelf. this can be both beneficial and a hindrance, as the king demonstrates : it leaves me being the only support i have! but how to find balance and stop being a /glutton/ for punishment? #2ofwands (yes that’s very helpful a 2 card for balance aten’t you the smart one emoji) – interesting to see another wands/fire card paired with cups/water, this one showing i need to get some perspective and take the long view of where my #concealdontfeel gets me. perhaps heat that water up and let off a little steam, rather than explode when the pillar crashes down on me!
getting my #spiritualadvisor du semaine #infinitytarot to weigh in on my personal net charity #kingofcups (a repeat of yesterday’s “gluttony” card!) and avarice #5ofwands with the #hierophant there to redress imbalance. what strikes me first is that there is /yet again/ a conflict of fire and water between the cards. then i see that the king and lady-in-clingfilm are both supporting a structure (though he’s doing the heavy lifting!), while the hierophant destroys the structure he himself is standing on. he also seems to be directing that extra burden at slacker on the right. these cards have such interesting artistic interpretation of the traditional meanings; i need to thinky-think on this one a little more.
what light can the the #infinitytarot shed on the #VnV combo of benevolence #queenofpentacles and envy #3ofcups? ugh these readings are getting harder by the day. i did ask for my #ego to be exposed so *deep breath* – i contribute to humanity by sharing my resources (repeatedly) but i can do so to the point where there is less and less left for/of me and i feel trapped by what i’ve established. then i am upset by how carefree other people seem, and feel taken advantage when they benefit and exclude me #OUCH how shall i correct this? by ripping #thetower up by its foundations and building a new schema in its place. note : i warned the deck that if i drew the #kingofcups again i would reshuffle. when i cut, there was an extra card dealt. GUESS WHO XD #youlittleshit
short and sweet and to-the-point #VnV with the #infinitytarot today : i display diligence in the area of #8ofpentacles and neglect (sloth) in #temperance. basically my superpower of hyper focus from yesterday’s #reelinginwisdom (i /knew/ it was the 8P before i even turned the card! #trufax) can lead me to failing to maintain a healthy balance between work and play, leading to the inevitable creative burnout. my panel of 78 advisors suggests i make time for a little “unproductive” frivolous #6ofcups fun :) note : 8+6=14 – balance achieved!
getting back to exposing my #VnV courtesy of the #infinitytarot and a perfect demonstration of my #credo : everything in moderation, including moderation emoji practising restraint (chastity) is a constant #2ofpentacles balancing act and sometimes i just say #fuckit because i want it all! that’s where an excess of desire (lust) rears its ugly #10ofpentacles head – it might seem like picture-perfect happiness, but look closer and you’ll see the cracks in the walls. the best advice is to pause – and pause again! – and reflect reflect reflect-some-more on whether what i want is what i need. after all, #themagician creates worlds with the bare minimum of tools!
it’s the final #VnV with the #infinitytarot who has obviously been saving this *flails hands and points wildly* up all week because #WTF man : humility in #7ofpentacles, pride in #kingofpentacles with the #aceofpentacles to balance. soooo i’m totes not a braggart/greedy for praise but i’m the biggest braggart out there and I should probably brag more – or less ?! -to fix this ?? have a tic-tac cos everyone can smell the liquor on your breath from 20 feet away #drunktarot >_<
Week of May 22 : hello kitty
this week i’m asking myself : #WWHKD – #whatwouldhellokittydo and how can i apply it to my life? using the #hellokittytarot, i expected the #tarotforecast to take a turn for the super duper #positive, so i’m not surprised by the #6ofpentacles and #10ofcups : live every day as if it’s your birthday, sharing joy and friendship with those around you, and you will be surrounded by love, laughter and family, always ^_^
oh my #hellokittytarot, #WWHKD? *a voice speaks from the glittery void* : #7ofswords and #theempress – she wouldn’t engage in petty wars with angry penguins; step away and let them enjoy their hollow victory (fact : “badtz-maru” means “wrong-correct”!) instead, she advises being the bigger person and killing them with kindness :* drowning them in love ❤️ and if they still insist on being a little shit-disturber, then crushing them under your giant strawberry is also a viable solution ^.^ #hellokittyismycopilot
are you a true seeker of #kawaiitenment? are you prepared to ask yourself #WWHKD? she has no mouth and yet she speaks : #strength and #themagician are the #tarotforecast for today. when life hands you lions, side-saddle up and fly boldly into the light-show of your dreams made manifest. you are the ringmaster of your desires – it’s up to you to direct those energies in the magnificent performance art that is your life!
if you’re having a #7ofwands moment – feeling attacked, out-numbered and vulnerable, like you’re the goalie for theologians team in this hockey game of life – don’t just stand there and let it happen. nobody’s paying you to take shots to the head! #WWHKD? she’d make them pay. SHE’D MAKE THEM AAAAALL PAYYY emoji #youcantoutrundeath #hellocarrie
welp, there it is. no more joking around; #hellokittytarot says it’s time to get serious! i’m already feeling overwhelmed by thoughts and timelines and NOT ENOUGH HOURS and i didn’t even have to ask #WWHKD, she just told me emoji it might be a thrill-a-minute to charge headlong into storm of ideas like the #knightofswords, but one loud thunderclap and horsey is going to bolt and then where will you be? #hellokitty takes the time to tend her #7ofpentacles garden carefully, allowing the tangible fruits of her labour to grow nice and fat in the light of gentle imagination. this #tarotreading is a direct reflection of what i was planning to do today : #writethatshitdown!!
welcome to #WWHKD #ragnarlodbrok** edition! the combination of #thechariot and #6ofwands is a pretty direct message to saddle up – or climb in your longboat – and ride out if you want to #getitemoji here’s the funny thing : remember the sad #5ofwands goalie from the other day? remember how he was paired with #death? what does 6 and 7 add up to… emoji dial it back there a little #hellokittytarot, your bloodlust is showing. (when i finally free myself from this flesh cocoon and reveal my true form, this HK plushie is what i’ll look like *^.^*)
it looks like the #hellokittytarot might have gotten the old #ultraviolence out of its system. for /now/. #WWHKD if she had a single, precious #aceofcoins? she’d use it to build something concrete and substantial. this #9ofwands doesn’t look as stressed and beaten down as usual; he looks rather like he’s been working on a project that’s nearly come to fruition. a reminder that you can do a lot with just a little! (#queenofswords was a jumper – i do so enjoy being addressed by my official title ;D #queenofwands was the #shadowcard so yeah, i’m getting the /eye/ alright!)
Week of May 15 : dreaming way (trimmed)
#tarotforecast with the #dreamingway, as promised 💫 dream to wake up from #4ofwands – dream to pursue #theemperor *HISSS* interesting pair of 4s : if you want the dream life, you have to take charge and make it happen! i told #theman the cards said i should stop wasting my time with him and find a rich “benefactor”; he said as long as my future sugar daddy doesn’t mind him tagging along, it’s all good ;) so i pulled another card and got #3ofcups – looks like it’s going to work out juuuust fine
still can’t believe i have a whole weekend off!? i need a break like whoa, but i also want to use this time productively. what counsel does the #dreamingway have re: getting my priorities straight? #6ofwands – #knightofpentacles – #thefool. they’re coming for you, fool, and you’ve got nowhere left to run! those productive, get-shit-done types have your number – best to confront them head-on, because if you can’t beat them…
difficult #tarotforecast to interpret today, requiring me to look beyond #ego. even if i don’t understand it immediately, i trust the #dreamingway knows what it’s doing! i am enough of this #2ofswords – i do enough of this #death – i have enough of this #6ofcups. #quint is #theworld again, so i feel this is a complete snapshot of what i need to integrate
having a physically challenging day, so i thought i’d cheer myself up with an ABC #shitreading but the #dreamingway was #NOPE on that – wouldn’t even shuffle! so instead we have how i am awesome #thehermit – beautiful #10ofswords – and courageous #thechariot : i am awesome at being my own bestie, beautiful for not hesitating to kill old ideas deaddeaddead, and courageous when it comes to chasing after new ones instead
who wants to play a guessing game? #6ofswords – 10ofcups – #thesun : 2 truths and a lie about yours truly madly not-so-deeply. leave a comment with your best guess! (#6ofswords is a the lie – no one is more shocked than me!)
in today’s edition of #tarotforecast! with the #dreamingway! i’m getting real deep ;) : who was i? #10ofswords – who am i? #themoon – who will i be? #5ofcups. i was pierced by a misery of my own making (was? /was/??) but now i’m happily playing with my inner lobster #pinchy as i wake up to my illusions (and delusions) to become someone who is content to let things go and be happy with what they have. ok then if you say so…
the #dreamingway really wants to motivate 🎉 me, so this #tarotforecast is in that same spirit : learn it #temperance – live it #7ofcups – love it #8ofwands. learn to manage the subtle balance of internal energies (as well as good old-fashioned temperance) and then put that into practice by making good choices and thinking twice before giving into temptation (ie. the easy way out). also, you can’t have everything! pick something and be happy with it (gee, wasn’t that the #5ofcups from yesterday?) the faster you learn to love it, the easier it will be, and productive results will come so much quicker too! #tarotcheerleader
#tarotforecast with the mini #hansonroberts, the only deck i’ll do public #tarotreadings with! do this : #knightofpentacles – avoid this : #6ofswords – remember to : #8ofwands. get going with that project and don’t get distracted by some shiny new idea! act quickly; strike while the #inspiration is hot 💥
#tarotforecast advice from the mini #hansonroberts : plant this #7ofswords – prune this #6ofcups – tend this #theemperor *HISSS* cultivate choosing which thoughts will serve you; the reality is everything isn’t #happyhappyjoyjoy so stop wishing it could be. tend to your business, make sure your kingdom is strong, and to hell with the rest.
i do enjoy getting my ass handed to me by the #hansonroberts! #3carddraw advice for today : remember this #5ofwands – forget this #thehermit – understand this #2ofwands. remember your fighting spirit and the battles you’ve fought to get here – stop malingering in the dark. every big result had a small start, so keep feeding the fire to keep it going. those fiery wands are going to smoke the hermit out of his cave! #tarotforecast
so #hansonrobertstarot, what advice do you have for a monday #tarotforecast? more of this #aceofcups – less of this #thehangedman – cut this out completely #themagician 😯 #loveyoself. love errybody! let the love pour forth like #kyussthedog with apples 💦 but stop fucking hanging around waiting for the perfect moment; the one true perspective. your #thirst for the D* might be real, but nothing just occurs by *magic* grip that wand and shake it til something happens!
time for my daily wake-up call from the mini #hansonrobertstarot! too hot #thehierophant – too cold #7ofwands – just right #queenofpentacles. yes, yes i can be a little rigid at times every once in a while definitely not every day SHUTUP YOU’RE NOT MY REAL MOM 😩 (the hierophant is my birth card; make of that what you will) and i need to improve my stamina and ability to stand my ground when it comes to backing up the 5W from the other day – it’s so hard being torn between the rules/the system and what you actually believe to be worth fighting for. but i’ve got that momma bear thing locked down?? apparently?? ok?? or does this wicked little #tarotdeck merely approve of the hottt bunny action in the background? #gross #getaroom
i figure fairies grant wishes so what better subject matter for a #tarotforecast with the #hansonroberts? what i think i want #aceofcups – what i actually want #2ofwands – how to get it #7ofpentacles. whatever it is i want, i’m going to have to slog through the work needed for it, obviously. AC and 2W are repeats from other days; AC is particularly muddy in meaning here. notice the 2W turns his back on the ace, looking towards where the reward will come from, almost as if the decision has been made already.
things are getting out of hand, so it’s best the #hansonroberts takes a break after today’s #tarotforecast! final #truthbomb : how to restore order to my mind #thechariot – body #7ofwands – and spirit #6ofwands. pick a direction and stick to it… for /real/. no, really. no side trips and scenic routes – put on those blinkers and GO. lift your spirits by recognizing your victories! the 7W is less obvious, except that it was “too cold” in tuesday’s reading. think it comes back to standing my ground and fighting for answers and treatment (but fuuuuuck i’m tired of fighting) in this case.
to celebrate the much-anticipated – by me, at least! – return of #pennydreadful on @showtime this sunday, the #pennydreadfultarot is the #tarotforecast deck of the week. doing something different : split the major & #minorarcana and drawing one from each pile a day; the minor reflects back on the #majorarcana card. today’s cheery combo is #death and the #8ofswords :C feeling trapped and unable to/fearful of change, but it’s mostly a mental barrier. don’t let the rats in your brain win!
#justice and the #9ofcups – you don’t say… i certainly hope this #tarotforecast plays out how i want it to…
#tarotforecast with the #pennydreadfultarot : sphere of influence – #death and how it is influenced – #7ofwands. immediate #intuitive impression of these two cards is “laying old enemies to rest”. death as a card of transformation points to these not necessarily being physical enemies, but rather the internal foes with whom we battle daily.
oh noes D: could @sototarot be right about yesterday’s cards? #thehermit plus #5ofswords combo #tarotforecast is definitely giving me “treachery is afoot” vibes, or at the very least, feeling attacked in my “happy place” in some way. then again, it could be about choosing which thoughts you allow to intrude – the productive ones or the ones that break you down. this is what learning a new #tarotdeck is all about! what language do you speak, #pennydreadfultarot?
it’s always a challenge to do a #tarotforecast-style #dailydraw when your lifestyle is only slightly less interesting than a box of cereal. /stale/ cereal 😋 so what can i see in #thelovers and #2ofwands? balance, opposites, choice, conflict – all that 2 stuff. there’s betrayal (thinking of the scorpion and the frog fable) and impending demise (scorpion sting and the awaiting empty stake), though the victim has been given a death of their choosing. perhaps they even embrace it willingly, as a sacrifice. personally, i see these pointing towards my having to make those choices and sacrifices if i’m going to push the 2W into something more developed and real.
go away #justice, i’m tired of being your beast of burden #10ofwands #tarotforecast is for more pressure with a strong chance of me finally snapping 👿 #notinthemood
i’m just happy not to see #justice again for the last #tarotforecast with the #pennydreadfultarot 😏 the #star is a great card to have next to the #5ofwands. i figure star>everything; any and all struggles diminishe under her influence 🌠
and the reign (rain?) of cups continues! working with the tarot of the #sacredfeminine for #tarotforecast this week and i’ll probably use it mainly as a #meditation deck. the #queenofcups depicts the virgin and child with saint anne. to me this speaks to remembering the – often untold, forgotten or dismissed – emotional history?hierarchy?origin? of your own #sacred events; those moments that change your personal history and define who you become. what is the genealogy of your #hiddenmysteries?
it’s the #10ofswords for today’s #tarotforecast – how cheery! in the tarot of the #sacredfeminine, the #stabbitystabstab card depicts the priestesses of #athena leaping to their deaths to escape the #patriarchy or something. what this tell me is, don’t let the assholes win. you can (metaphorically) kill yourself for what you believe in, but then you’re dead and the assholes are still assholes. keep your vision clear and far-sighted and when the assholes come, tear them a new one 💅
#ugh. #UGHHHH. ok this is why i usually take the long way round *feminine*🌛🌕🌜decks because this [hand waving] earth-mother fluids-leaking babies’R’us [HAND WAVING INTENSIFIES] wombyn business is #sonotme. BUT! i can spin this : y’all know #witches feed their familiars milk from a supernumerary nipple? well i see miss disproportionately long legs here (she’s almost 10 heads tall #puhlease) seems to have a slithery friend who’s taking advantage of her alarmingly juicy tiddie situation !! as for her *cough* uterine leavings – that’s some serious #earthmagic right there #burnthewitch🔥before she comes for your delicious babies!
another exhibitionist and her #totallynotphallic #justfriends serpent companion for #tarotforecast : eurynome & ophion doing the do to create the world egg. the tarot of the #sacredfeminine is playing to my soft spot for the ❤️primordials❤️ to get the message across! #theempress yesterday + #themagician today – ok ok time to harness the elements and get with the creating of worlds in my likeness i hear you.
the #sacredfemininetarot depicts #demeter as #thehermit, searching for #persephone. ohhhhh… i get it… looking at the draws from this deck, they all fit together to form a single #tarotreading, showing the process from #deathofego through searching for more purely creative life again! sorry for the shit talking, cards #meamaximaculpa looking forward to seeing this extended #tarotspread completed!
this is how i feel about today’s #tarotforecast draw from the tarot of the #sacredfeminine – get me my ✂️ ALL of my ✂️✂️✂️!!! /this is not the #3ofcups/. the grail is the #aceofcups; it just is. at best, this could be a #2ofcups. even the #lwb makes 0⃣ sense. @ethony asked what i thought of this deck and now i can honestly say there’s a #trimmingparty in its very near future, where it will be gloriously reborn as the #oracle it was meant to be! #tarotrant
last #tarotforecast with the tarot of the #sacredfeminine and it’s the #9ofwands. i… i think this deck wants to #fightme! too bad for you, pissypants, we’re not in wonderland and a pack of cards is still just a pack of cards /and i have scissors/ 😈 gonna cut you up so you can be reborn in your very own little resurrection myth!
Week of April 16 : deviant moon (borderless)
hello to a week of #tarotforecast with the #deviantmoontarot (so, sooo happy #usgamesinc released a borderless edition!) first reaction to the #7ofwands is i thought it was the 9; getting a really defensive, “please, i don’t want any trouble,” vibe from it. maybe i’m projecting (didn’t plan on using props with the #deviantmoon but the quangle wangle wanted in. i dunno. i’m just the messenger!)
so the #deviantmoontarot wants to pose with my childhood books for the daily #tarotforecast which is all well and good, but only a handful of them made the transatlantic journey and we’re going to run out of backgrounds soon! “kranmer the crocodile” is an absolute #knightofcups – a crocodile (water) who daydreams (KgtC) about flying, and the knight in this card is also a creature of dual elements. dream the #impossibledream long enough and eventually it will come true – in some way or the other 🌟
was instantly drawn to the drop of water (tear ?) the #queenofcups is catching in this #tarotforecast : “don’t waste your tears/emotions” i.e. #spendyourfuckswisely! this is a woman who has learned when – and /just how much/ – to care, a difficult lesson i am still learning!
lowkey afternoon with “fargo” and i can hear the #deviantmoontarot //whispering//; it wants its #tarotforecast. shuddup deviant, i’m watching my shows. //but deeeeeeee…// #FINE. //>:\// GDI. #brattydecks
late update #tarotforecast : while the #queenofcups advised saving my tears, the #aceofcups just says lol #goodluckwiththat better get a bucket for your #creys
I DON’T HAVE A MIGRAINE!! 🎉 whatever warring #2ofswords twin dragon good vs evil forces dwell within my nervous system, they have reached a stalemate. #tarotforecast for the day includes complete and utter lack of co-ordination and not a single fuck given #wooooooo 🎉
the #deviantmoontarot knows today is its last #tarotforecast so it’s acting up. there, there, little one; #egbOK. there is a little of that stress energy hanging around for /reasons/ but i’m waving it away dismissively. this #9ofswords pairs nicely with the childhood #nightmarefuel that is #struwwelpeter, though it never disturbed me too much o.<
Week of Apr 9 : wooden
a new week of #tatotforecast with the #woodentarot. other #tarot readers have said this one is difficult to work with and a bit cold; it’s definitely not giving me much in the way of feedback. 4 of bones is equivalent to #4ofpentacles, so there’s the 4’s themes of stability/grounding/foundation. the rib cage and spine are central to the body – maintain a strong core and *breathe* focusing on inner strength. lordt please #donttestme today!
#6ofcups (blooms) is today’s #tarotforecast. incidentally, had 3 blooms jumpers while shuffling, so /definitely/ a blooms day! the eyeballs on stalks immediately remind me of the “eye moss” in #labyrinth… the feeling i’m getting from this card is “seeing from the heart”; seeing from a place of softness and potential. the way the bloom in untethered, gives the idea of “supporting yourself”; “you are enough” #idunno the #woodentarot is a skittish beastie.
#woodentarot throws another blooms card for today’s #tarotforecast – and blooms jumpers again! – the #7ofcups. it looks like a talisman (or some weird alien spaceship… or a biblical angel, all rotating wings and eyes) and the petal “rays” instantly reminded me of this lovely #evileye pendant i have. this card has a mild-to-moderate unsettling vibe… like a praying mantis tilting its head when evaluating your viability as a food source… sooo stare down the world and activate the #deathray!
is the #woodentarot trying to prove a point with all these #tarotforecast blooms cards? because i’m running out of props /and/ now i wish I had a tiara that matches this card! 😝 the #9ofcups is the lifetime-of-achievements card and the blooms card translates this into a crown of mini joys, encircling and protecting the ultimate blooming goal. the flowers up top are still buds; still working towards that central bloom – the #10ofcups happily-ever-after that follows. they might be delicate, but the sharp outgrowths on the bounding branch warn that they know how to defend and secure what they are working towards.
wondered if the #woodentarot would deal me another blooms card today. it didn’t, but there is a tiny bloom in that #fool card! had the strongest urge to turn another card and got the #sun, which is funny because my attention was drawn to the sun on the fool! so today’s #tarotforecast is a /major/ – #tarotpun – to leave my cares behind and simply enjoy the sunny weather :)
ugh why do i have to be blessed with a #flareup on my day off? wanted to trim decks, but my wrists… planned on serious editing, but i lose my train of though if i even turn my head! #everythinghurts and i’m exhausted by breathing. chronicpain is truly the gift that keeps on giving and i’d return it, but i lost my receipt 😡 so what does the #pageofwands /stones advise? take delicate, baby, bokkie steps; when hard things intersect to block your path, you can take them and transform them into a useful part of you (horns) – and hey, at least you you don’t have a #migraine! so practical, #woodentarot.
i’ll be sad to say goodbye to the #woodentarot; it’s given such easy #tarotforecast cards. pulled today’s last night to make for an easier morning. the #8ofcups was a jumper *and nobody is surprised by the blooms at all* rather than put it back, i checked the current moon phase against the card – pretty close! left it out and kept shuffling, then pulled #strength. two 8s! stay balanced, stay strong, and turn shit into diamonds!
first #tarotforecast with the #japaridzetarot – seriously one of the most gorgeous decks out there ❤️ definitely see the day ahead of me in the #2ofpentacles (gardens)! also a little reminder harking back to the #3ofwands from a few days ago, to keep the balance and not overextend in any one area.
the #TOWER is my #tarotforecast?? *eep* #nothanks #UBSUBSCRIBE
now i think the #japaridze is just dicking with me. yesterday it was the #ENDOFTHEWORLDASYOUKNOWIT and today the #tarotforecast is all sunshine and roses and holding hands? hmm. HMMM.
1-2-3-4 i declare a #skeletonwar XD can’t help laughing at this #tarotforecast! the #5ofwands (fire in the #japaridzetarot) is not so match a battle, as a skirmish of wills; figuring out the natural order of things vying for your attention. i am approaching the point where i’m going to have to decide where i extend my primary creative energy, and who gets the scraps!
and the #tarotforecast for today is… my #bff, my #bae, my favourite #stalkercard of them all : #death! 💀 always nice to see you, #morty. same time next week?
so after i’ve /just/ been going on a tear about my #emperor rageboner, the #japaridzetarot thinks it can hand me the #kingofwands for the day’s #tarotforecast?! you’re damn lucky oh sassy one that i’m mostly ok with the king, but #sideeye #watchingyou
while shuffling, i literally told the #japaridzetarot, “ok one last time to sass me…” and here we are. #japaridze: 1 me: 0 #notevenmad #iwillneverlearn #fool
#tarotforecast #justice #intuitive interpretation : every action has an equal and opposite reaction. i’ve been caught in a poisonous cycle, but it is only by being bitten that i gain the ability to cut through it. apt that the tool depicted is a knife – i am the #queenofswords (who looks a lot like lady justice in many decks) after all!
#tarotforecast #5ofcups though the #lwb suggests actively getting rid of what no longer works for you, my #intuitive reading of this card – for me, today – is trying to desperately hold on to what is already gone and best forgotten. perhaps it is the place of being stuck between the two. typical #five #energy!
oh hai #morty! i heard you like #flowercrowns so… today’s #tarotforecast features my favourite #stalkercard. nothing #deepandmeaningful here – i really do feel like #death
“GO and don’t let anybody stop you” is the #lwb interpretation for today’s #tarotforecast with the #chariot, but first you have to actually /turn the damn thing on/! i see the car as the body and the bird as the mind/intellect/will. the body lights the way, while the mind _leads_ the way. they have to work /together/ if you don’t want to be stuck idling in the garage for the rest of your life. kyk noord, fok voort!
instead of *clearing my mind* while shuffling today’s #tarotforecast, i was debating whether i should re-bleach my roots. these 3 FLEW out the deck : “yo, lady, shut that squawking bird-brain up and don’t be a #fool. this is a very narrow #alchemical line you’re walking; a little #temperance is in order.” well /fine/. i don’t think i like this deck very much…
#3ofwands is today’s #tarotforecast : you’ve laid the kindling, now tend the fire carefully. let it burn slow and steady; either too much or too little fuel, and the warming blaze will be extinguished.
last #tarotforecast with the #prismavisionstarot on #aprilfoolsday! so where am i the biggest fool? this #8ofcups is especially chaotic (reminds me of the awful winds we’re experiencing 😖) and the colours are oppressive. it gives me the feeling of being overwhelmed by conflicting emotions and the sense of panic when you can’t find a way out, though the situation is hardly ever as dire as you think it is. just *breathe* and it will be over soon!
