Light a Fire Under My Ass

So I've got a major dilemma and very, very little time to figure it out. So I decided to keep it simple for once, and just use two cards and assign positions today:

First thing I notice is the elements fire/air. They are a work perfectly together. And it shows that I need shit to happen on the quick, no time to waste. (I've wasted quite a bit...I know... Me?! Shocking

1. What do I need to do? Page of Wands
Pages are all about communication and the Page of Wands is the one who makes sure it gets done sooner rather than later. He's energetic and enthusiastic. But I notice that this page is chillin' just sittin' back playing his guitar. Wth?....He's telling me to stop sitting on my ass like I have all the time in the world cause I don't! Make calls, contact folks via internet, make moves Girl! Chop-chop! And don't be dumb and not use my gift of gab and charm. I often feel like that's cheesy and shady. Which if used in a cheesy or shady way, it would be. When used as the gift that I have, it's not. I suck at a whole lot of things. Talking to people and being warm, sincere and engaging ain't one of them! So do that! I think him sitting and looking relaxed is to tell me not to stress no matter how stressful things are. Be calmly confident, yet aggressive.

2. Best course of action to make that happen? Queen of Swords
I mean look at her! She is clearly one not to be messed with who is not taking not for an answer! And I never noticed before that she is tied to a burning stake! Yet this chick is sooo not scared!! (I ain't scurred! lol) She looks like all hope is lost but she is so not thinking about that! She is devising a plan, a strategy, as is so characteristic of QofSw. She is determined, focused and courageous. She reminds me of a witch burning at the stake (still blows my mind that was really done to people!) I think I may need to do a little candle magick. The moon right now is waning and in Gemini, one of the signs that represents this Queen. It's a good time to do magick that removes blocks with regard to communication, making a plan, being assertive, focused, direct and determined and cutting out all the bullshit while doing it. The asp at her third eye makes me think of Isis. I've got to keep my thoughts positive and clear as to the result I want, NOT think about what I don't want or am afraid of happening.

There are no other people on the card; she knows that no one is around to pull her out of the hot seat, she's got to save herself this time. Being afraid or not focused will lead to her detriment. She's got a fire lit under her ass. Even though I can see no way of her getting out of this, the look on her face just screams, "Oh yeah?? Watch me!!"

A Message From the Goddess Rhiannon

So I asked my guides and angels, "What do you want me to know right now?" (I am so sorry for the crappy picture! Scanner/printer gods, hear my plea! lol) Since I am supposed to have been at the gym, the first things that this says loud and clear is to get off my ass and put it on the EFX lol. I really do not like to exercise, but  the benefit can not be denied. Mental clarity as well as physical action, swords. This is the Goddess Rhiannon. So this is now telling me a couple of other things. First, I needed a refresher on Her, so I found some cool info at this site,  The author summed Her story up like this: The story of the Celtic goddess Rhiannon reminds us of the healing power of humor, tears, and forgiveness.  The goddess Rhiannon is a goddess of movement and change who remains steadfast, comforting us in times of crisis and of loss.

I definitely am still in a time of crisis and lots of changes I need what's interesting is that when I did my morning prayers, I specifically focused on accepting and welcoming change and that needs to change with my thoughts and attitude. So a Swords card makes all the sense in the world and even more so this particular one now that I have learned even more about Rhiannon.

The other thing this says is that I need to pull out my Faulkner Tarot, which was actually gifted to me my Rhiannon Faulkner herself. I am planning to go to Washington DC this weekend to do some professional readings, please pray that scheduling goes off without a hitch so this can actually happen. It's a big step for my scaredy-cat ass, so wish my luck lol! I will make sure it is one of the decks I bring.  Also that I need to take her up on her offer to be an approved instructor for her deck.

How Can I Co-operate With God/Goddess

I was at a blog I think you should all check out, The lady's name is Lisa and she had another blog, Tarot Healing, that has taught me a lot and been so inspirational.  Today I  found a great spread she created and I'm going to try it. I absolutely love the title of this! I mean when you think about it, isn't that where a lot of our troubles stem from? The lack of understanding and thus lack of co-operation on our part?


1. General answer to the question: Wow...let's just start off with a bang here lol. The Fool 0. The basic answer I need to focus on is that I need to trust in the limitless power of The Divine, and thus my own limitless power! Trust that everything will be great and that is what I will pull to me. At first the wolf looks so scary, but I just heard that saying the old folks use, "God protects babies and fools!" And now I am realizing that the child has the wolf on a leash! The child is in control, NOT the wolf!! Trust that I am more powerful than my fears and then I can harness them and train them to behave the way I see fit. This way, I don't have to act foolishly, but can have that lack of fear and total confidence that children have when facing a new adventure. You can not kill your Shadow self no matter how much you dislike it. But once you lovingly accept that you must co-exist with it, you can transform it and use it to your advantage. The baby is not focused on the wolf now, but on that beautiful rose, new life, hope, beauty, creation, and it's like the rose is bending down for him to grab. The red color and that the child is firmly seated is making me think of how much I need to do energy work on my root chakra. The color for it is red and it represents knowing that one has a right to be here and is safe, that the Universe supports you.

2. When I'm alone: Choose to face my fears, and start with the really scary ones first. The Lovers VI is ruled by Mercury who rules communication and speed, which just went retrograde until the 28th  and tht tells me a few things.A) Again a sign that blogging is good for me. 2. I need to continuously, actively choose to keep my thoughts positive and be clear and direct in my prayers. If I'm sending mixed messages to the Divine, I guess all I could get would be mixed results.  3)Don't get too caught up in my own head as I tend to do and do NOT see mySelf as a fcking powerless victim. True, I've got some scary and overwhelming shit to deal with. But either deal with it or it's gonna deal with me! The knight coming down from the sky makes me think I need to ask Micheal the arch angel for help. Been getting a lot of signs about angels lately,

3. When with friends and family: Another Major Arcana, wow! And my beloved High Priestess II. She is telling me to stay true to mySelf and trust my own intuition. No matter how wise and sincere those who love me are, I have GOT to listen to and trust my own inner Goddess!! This card never ever leads me astray.

4. In my professional life: Are you serious, another Major!? lol! I SOOO have to get my resume' out to more airlines and do some readings for others! Again, the whole babies and fools theme, and also be brave and stop going round and round in a maze of confusion that gets me nowhere fast. Breakout of my own self-imposed prison and go for it. The Sun XIX is as "yes" as you'll ever get to any question! Yet ANOTHER reminder that I will be hugely successful in both areas IF I get my shit together and go for it. The one child holding the other child's make me think of my biggest supporters these days, Suzette, Marjorie, Ray and my dear friend in the UK, Karen. xoxox

5. Around those who are negative or try to thwart my efforts: ......You've GOT to be kidding me.... I swear to you I shuffled well and no, I have not been doing anything with only majors lately that would explain this.... Justice XI This tells me that others will always be judging me, but I can NOT listen to that crap. The beam of light as she looks upward tells me that it's not what anyone other than The Divine thinks. I just watched The Town, again last night. Such an amazing movie! This card is reminding me of how Doug's best friend Jim was such an sad and judgmental asshole. He didn't want Doug to succeed because he didn't want Doug to do more and grow to be a better person because of his own insecurities. They came from a place where honor was the law of the land, but it became a very twisted and unjust weapon that people used against each other. But Doug had finally grown and learned from his mistakes, and they where some huge ones. There are a lot of parallels to be drawn, but I know this card is telling me SO clearly that the friendships I have recently lost where no longer healthy and it was time for them to end. Just like Doug, I don't want to blame, judge, or punish others for  how they choose to live their lives, it is not my place and it is not healthy for anyone. Karma is very efficient, She does not need my help. Just for me to keep being true to mySelf. Honor and being a true friend has to start within your won self first.

What an amazing reading this was! And this many majors is a neon sign I need to come back to often and take head. Thank you Lisa for sharing this spread.
