Weekday Inspiration for 7-31-2017


Happy Monday all. The card for today is the Five of Swords. Look for a bit of conflict today. This could result in a battle of words, sharp differences in opinion, and petty mind games. There may be a contest of one-upmanship. One side will get the better of the other and there will be some hurt feelings. But all in all, this is a short-lived event — unless you are the type to hold grudges.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with airing differences and standing up for what we believe in. But how we do it is the key to whether the experience is positive or not so positive.

If you are the one who “loses” the battle, the best thing to do is not make a big deal out of it. Walk away, lick your wounds, and sort out your emotions about the incident. You will learn something that will help you handle the situation better the next time. Although your feelings are hurt now, you will soon realize that it is not so serious that you need to waste much time thinking about it.

If you are the person who “wins” the battle, it feels pretty good to have the upper hand — at least for now. But was it worth it? You got your point across but did you do it in a mature, loving way? Or quite frankly, were you being an asshole? Although it feels good momentarily, perhaps you have lost others’ respect in this instance. So think about how you handled the situation. If you could have done it differently, at least admit it to yourself. If appropriate, try to smooth things over or even apologize. Then move on. Just because you had a disagreement doesn’t mean you can’t still be friendly.

Extended Weekend Report 7-28 to 7-30-2017


The card for today, Saturday, and Sunday is the Ten of Cups. Can I get a “whoop whoop?” This card Indicates a really nice energy for the weekend. No complications and completely clear skies — except for a rainbow of emotional security and fulfillment. Love abounds, as does a sense of belonging. This weekend will be a time for harmonious relationships, whether it’s family, friends, or lovers.

The Ten of Cups is a particularly welcome sight because this past week had its ups and downs and may have been downright difficult. But as always, the hard times have the potential to pave the way to emotional growth. And let’s not forget happiness, and what is happiness if not freedom? Enjoy the moment and share it with others.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend.

Weekday Inspiration for 7-26-2017


The card for today is the Three of Swords. A sharp sense of disappointment is indicated here. You may have a sudden realization and you will feel hurt. But this is mental pain more than emotional pain. That doesn’t mean it won’t hurt any less — at least for now. It just means that once the clouds clear, you will see your situation with fresh eyes, learn a few lessons, and move on.

It is interesting because we had another card from the suit of Swords on Monday. The thing to remember is that for the most part, the Swords deal with thoughts, logic, and mind over matter. Look at the picture on the Three of Swords card. Notice that the heart is pierced but not bleeding.

Also with the Swords, sometimes things happen quickly. You could feel the pain for longer than a few minutes or it could last for only a moment or two. One thing is for sure: You have the willpower to turn that pain into something useful that will make your future brighter.

Weekday Inspiration for 7-25-2017


Today’s card if the Queen of Pentacles. The focus is on your home, comfort, and being in control of your domain.  So spruce up your living quarters, decorate, or rearrange the furniture. Did you ever get a chance to do any spring cleaning? That’s ok. Do a little summer cleaning.

Here’s something simple to do: Stop at the florist or the supermarket and pick up a small arrangement of flowers and a plain vase. Proudly display them when you get home. This is a wonderful way to tap into the Queen of Pentacles energy and to lift your spirits.

Today you might have a conversation with a warm, down-to-earth person, which is nice because your can be yourself with them. Make sure to give them a hug. If you are that practical earthy person with the hilariously blunt sense of humor, today is your day to shine.

Weekday Inspiration for 7-24-2017


The card for the day is the Ten of Swords. Today’s energy is telling you to stop. To use an informal phrase, “Cut it out.” The idea you had about a situation or a belief is not what it you thought it was, so let it go. Whatever has caused you a lot of mental stress and worry lately is not worth it. You don’t need the pain any more. So “cut your losses” and move on to the bright day that is dawning.

You might have had a blow to your ego. However, this hurt may not be as bad as you have made it out to be: Your nagging thoughts are blowing the situation way out of proportion. The solution is to stop making the hurt worst by continuing to dig into the pain. Let it go, let it go, let it go. With some distance, you will soon have peace of mind and clarity.

Maybe you feel betrayed — “stabbed in the back,” so to speak. But remember, you may be down, but not out. It may feel like you’re bleeding heavily but it’s only a flesh would. It hurts — but you can shake it off and begin again. It may not seem like it now, but you will soon forget about the pain.

Extended Weekend Report 7-21 to 7-23-2017


The card for today, Saturday, and Sunday is the Queen of Wands. This weekend will be a busy one, full of activity. If you have a to-do list that has been collecting dust, now is the time to brush it off and tackle each item, one by one. By the time the weekend is over, you will have a lot accomplished.

This also could be the time to bring home work from the job. If you have your own business, you could spend some time tending to it. Either way, you will feel productive and energized.

The Queen of Wands is all about creativity and sexuality. Put those two elements together and it could spell success for those who are trying to conceive a baby. If you’re not trying to have a baby, make sure you have your precautions in place!

You may come in contact with someone, maybe a friend of yours, who is positive and upbeat. That person will inspire and encourage you to follow through on your ideas.

With all this energy flowing, make sure you also get some rest this weekend. You don’t want to burn out, then head into Monday morning feeling tired and exhausted!

Peace and Love. Enjoy.

Weekday Inspiration for 7-20-2017


Today’s card is the Nine of Cups. That means that the energy for today is one of emotional fulfillment. The Nine of Cups is also called the ‘wish fulfillment’ card, which says that something you have hoped for has come true or is coming soon, and as a result you are emotionally satisfied. There’s not too much more to say here, except  Hip Hip Hooray!

Whoa, wait. There is one more thing. Enjoy your good feelings today but do not take them for granted and do not think that you are entitled. Appreciate the gifts given to you; be thankful.

Okay. That’s it. Be blessed.

Weekday Inspiration for 7-19-2017


The card for today is the Queen of Cups, an energy of love, compassion, nurturing, and support. Show love and concern to the people around you today. But most importantly, direct that loving energy toward yourself. Be kind to yourself. Love who you are unconditionally. In addition, become a master of your emotions. Respect your boundaries and those of others. Yet don’t be afraid to express your love for fear that you will not be accepted. Feel your way along toward balance.

Each and every one of us has “masculine” energy and “feminine” energy inside of us. The Queen of Cups is a feminine energy, so for a man, today’s suggestion is to tap into your compassionate feminine side and express it through your male identity.

Many women also have a hard time expressing their feminine side. Sometimes women feel the need to protect themselves by not appearing weak. Some feel that in order to survive in a male-dominated society they have to act tough. Women: Today is a great day to let down your guard.

Today, you may come in contact with a person who is an emotional support for you, someone who cares about you, and makes you feel loved. Cherish the time spent with that person. Those moments are truly special.

Weekday Inspiration for 7-18-2017


Hi, all. Today’s card is Death, which is all about endings—as well as beginnings. Circumstances and attitudes that no longer serve your higher good will be fading out of the picture. Some examples are the end of a job (quitting, firing, retirement), the end of a relationship, or a decision to halt production on a project that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.

But whether this is a sad experience or not depends on your attitude. If you were blindsided and didn’t see the changes coming, this may feel like an unwelcome change. But sometimes things happen gradually and it gets to the point where enough is enough. It simply could be a situation that has come to its natural conclusion.

Sometimes the Death card is a sign that you are the one who should let go, that you should move on because there is nothing more to be gained from the current situation. But sometimes this card shows that the decision is out of your hands. Something is leaving your life and you don’t have a say in it. Either way, the best way to handle the situation is to grieve the loss if you must but don’t resist the leaving. Holding on would be a waste of time.

Don’t forget that story is not over. The ending indicated here is making a way for a new beginning. Eventually, you will see, if you haven’t already, that this so-called death can be a transformation into something much better.
