Should I Teach Tarot?

I've been considering teaching a tarot course for a very long time. I asked the cards today about that.

1. General energy surrounding the matter - 7 of pentacles - I've been waiting a long time to see this through and actually manifest as a reality and the time is nigh. I've been through a whole lot of shit, but that will only make the course that much more well-rounded, informative and meaningful to myself and my students. This has the potential to profitable, though it may be a bit slow going initially. Don't give up! It will also lead to numerous other opportunities I can't yet see. Don't be upset with myself for not doing it sooner, it'll prove worth the wait. But it's time to roll up my sleeves, put actual time and planning and do the work necessary to get the result I want. The rewards will not just be financial gain, but a sting sense of pride and accomplishment. (I started working on the course this afternoon *smile*)

2. Why should I do it? - 9 of pentacles - Self. Sufficient. Woman! This completely Amen's everything the 7ofP just said with neon. I'm also getting that my spirits are poised and ready to assist me.

3. Why I shouldn't do it? - The Star XVII - Not one good reason not to! So tell the voice of self doubt that is so ready to point out all may flaws and past failures to kiss where the sun don't shine! I have so many angles surrounding me and supporting me it's ridiculous. If I don't do this, I'll be doing such a great dis-service to mySelf as well as others exponentially. Touching touching people's lives through tarot is my dream, my passion. I have the potentially to be every bit as successful, inspirational, and healing as the people I most admire. My fear has always been that it would take a miracle - well here it is delivered with sparkling pixie dust and the assistance of an entire Legion. I also see this as confirmation that I will incorporate what I am learning through my crystal healing course I'm taking from Hibiscus Moon and yet further confirmation that I am to take an angel healing course (Doreen Virture?? Mayyybe. Maybe through someone else. Either way, do it.)

I pulled a card from my Earth Magic Oracle by Dr. Steven Farmer to ask how I can best tap into the energies and desires above. I got Meadow. I'll let the pictures from tonight's walk explain how the Universe provided an opportunity to do so.

Death By Hanging

Tonight's card is just ultra fucked up given the news I received a few days ago.

I'm in the UK for a few months. I made went to great lengths to make sure my dog was well cared for while I'm gone. Long story short, I found out she hung herself. How you ask? Good question. Because that would mean I'd know why the fuck she was outside in the summer in New Orleans in the first damn place after making it abundantly clear she could not be since she has a thick, all black coat. And more over, why in the hell was she on a got damn leash, tied up when she has two very large backyards to fun and play in since my neighbor opened the fence between our yards!? I don't feel like talking about it at all, so I won't go into anymore detail except to say that I had my ex boyfriend who is still a very close friend (if you follow this blog, yes, Joshua and I are great friends lmao. Whoda thunkit!?) go around to check on her since my neighbor was ignoring my phone calls. In the middle of lying saying she was fine, another neighbor comes up and says, "yeah, that's so messed up that dog hung herself".

So this card, The Hanged Man XII, that I've never had a hard time with is now what the Devil and the Tower once used to be for me, a the worst card in the deck to get. Right now it reads like the two of them plus the 9 of swords, 10 of swords, 3 of swords, Judgement and Death. I want the rename it "The Hanged Innocent Belgian Shepherd" . I see the coins falling out of his hand. I've lost something more precious than gold. I thought she was in safe hands. Nope. She's in the ground and the afterlife. I pray she can forgive me. And that I can too.


I love you Selene. I'm so very sorry.


Like that can fix anything. Ha.

Summer Solstice 2014 - Joy


We're back! Damn, when I fall off, I fall OFF!!! Six months to the day! Anyway, let's just get to the point. If you don't follow the girls who do the Tarot Blog Hop, you may want to check it out. I haven't participated in a long time, but I still support them. They do posts based on the Celtic Wheel of the Year. Today is Litha or Midsummer, the longest day of the year when the sun shines the longest it will the entire year. The topic for the hop was "How can I bring more joy into my life?" It's so weird to have the words joy and tarot in the same sentence and not have Arwen saying it lol!

This is a damn good question since I just found out 3 days ago that the "safe, responsible, reliable" neighbor I left my beloved 1 1/2 year old Belgian Shepherd Selene with wasn't such a good choice. I've been gone two weeks. She's dead. I have no words to explain what I feel. Before I start throwing things and crying uncontrollably, I'll leave that topic alone.

So here's shag tarot has to say about how I can find some joy. Although I kinda feel like saying fuck joy and anything to do with it. *sigh*


1. Where can I find joy? - Queen of Cups - By the sea. I'm currently in the UK, close to the coast, and have already been to the water and will spend a week there soon. What's funny is I haven't used this deck in over two years and it is one of the ones I brought with me from he US. And it is the one I brought when I wentt to the beach a few weeks ago. And guess which card I took pictures of lol. I felt so much LaSirene energy and I have heard her gently whisper in my ear today. And here she is. I also feel like this her reminding me of how much joy music brings me, but as I look at the fish, that she wants me to dance. I stopped my morning therapy of listening and dancing to Pharelle's "Happy" at least three times first thing in the morning. Need to get back to that This is also a reminded to meditate.

2. What will help me to find joy? - Page of Swords- As I was shuffling I hear "the anise is by writing/blogging" and here we have a true representation of communication and done in a very raw, speak with no filter kind of a way. And that is the whole point of this blog. I created it as a place where I can speak from a place that is unfiltered and raw. That's why I do nothing at all to promote it. I don't want to be concerned about what I say or who it will affect. It's my haven to say what the fuck I want of need to. It's how I cleaf my head. Very swords-like indeed.

As I look at this boy offering me two swords presented on a beautiful cobalt cushion, one silver the other gold, I'm reminded that happiness IS a choice. Is a difficult one as of late, but I know what happens if I choice not to actively pursue it. It ain't pretty.

3. What will hold me back from it? - Strenght VIII - Ha, this was the very last card that I drew when shit just got ridiculously crazy and I stopped posting. I'll need to go back and see what it had to say back then.

This card has so much solar energy to it, it's Leo. Not recognizing just how strong I am, how much shit I've dealt with and overcome and not giving mySelf credit for diminishes my power. I need to channel Leo energy that radiates pride, confidence. Think Mick Jagger, Lucille Ball and President Obama and his pimp-ass walk. Stop thinking small, embrace feminine, feline power like on the card.

As I'm typing this I guess I got confirmation as sun-colored feline jumped on the cards lol. Meet Ozzy who is a love! Cats. No shame lol!
