7 of Cups

Are you having a hard time making a decision, maybe trouble moving forward?  Are you blaming yourself and everybody else for your emotional problems?  It might be a little tough right now but don’t give up.  Try to pull yourself together and start making some choices.  Don’t waste your time worrying about what anyone else is doing.  Concentrate instead on getting a grip on yourself.

What do you really want next?  Think about it clearly and with as much focus as you can muster.  Once you finally choose, it’s going to be a lot easier.  Wallowing in misery or hiding in whatever escape you feel most comfortable in won’t help for much longer.  In fact, it’s likely to bring you down instead.  Pull up those boot straps and decide what’s next.

The only real way to feel better is to start taking action.  So snap out of it and get moving, you’ve got lots to do.

March 26th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Here’s your chance to invest in some tarot history …

Enrique Enriquez: Tarology, Exploring the poetics of the Marseilles Tarot is a documentary in progress by Chris Deleo.

The film focuses on poet and tarot reader, Enrique Enriquez. International speaker, teacher and author, Enrique is passionate about the cards.

He sees their magic everywhere, but isn’t so interested in divination or even intuition. He likes them simply for the pictures they are and the stories they tell.

In addition to the work being documented with Enrique, the film will also explore other reading styles. The filmmakers will be traveling around to interview noted experts and authors throughout the tarot community.

It’s the first documentary of its kind, and the first full-length film about tarot attempting to get a theatrical release.

And it’s looking for investors. Why not be part of tarot history and donate today!

You don’t have to do it just because you’re nice and love tarot and Enrique. You can get a little something for yourself in the bargain.

•$10 donation will give you a ‘special thanks to…’ in the film credits
•$25 donation gives you a ‘special thanks…’ and a special Marseilles tarot card autographed by Enrique Enriquez and the filmmakers
•$50 donation will give you all of the above and an autographed copy of the finished DVD
•$100 donation gets you all of the above and a tarot card reading via email from Enrique Enriquez
•$250 donation will give you all of the above and a very special ‘Producer’ credit in the film
•$500 donation will make you a super star in everyone’s eyes, and you get all of the above, and if you live in New York or can travel there, Enrique Enriquez himself will instruct you in a one on one lesson using the Marseille Tarot.

Doesn’t it make you want to give!

Enrique is going to be joining us on Beyond Worlds Saturday, May 7th. We’ll be asking him all about the film.

And in case you missed his visit last July, you can listen here — Beyond Worlds with Enrique Enriquez

#8 Justice from Georgie's Tarot

#8 Justice

Saturday, March 26, 2011
#8 – Justice

Today’s themes are balance and justice.  It might be time to stand up or into your own authority by being strong, sure and most importantly, just.  This isn’t the time to play around and think you’ll get away with not doing your share.  On the other hand, if you do the work required, the Justice energy is happy to reward you.

Have you been playing fair?  It’s not so much about the mundane rules as it is about the bigger universal justice.  And it’s not necessarily about ‘work’ per se, but rather the energies that you’ve been putting out there.  Are you speaking up for what you believe in?  Are you taking responsibility for your own life?  Do you help others as you might expect them to help you?

What you send out is what you’re likely to get back.  This is karma in action and it’s generally quite profound.  On days when the Justice card appears, the karmic force is typically more obvious than usual.  Look around and see if you can find it.

Take time to rebalance yourself, and if possible, find some time to get out into nature.  It usually puts things into perspective pretty fast. Think carefully about your next move.  It’s what you’ve already done that has brought you to where you are now.  What you do next will determine what you’ll be reaping in your future.   Try to make it something good for everyone.

Moon in Capricorn – High Priestess in the Devil's Clothing

March 25th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

The High Priestess dressed as the Devil

High Priestess as the Devil

The Moon moves into Capricorn tonight at 9:57 pm EDT and will stay there until Sunday at 11:16 pm.

If you were to describe this transit using the Tarot, you might say that the High Priestess is wearing the Devil’s clothing. The virginal goddess has gotten downright beastly.

The High Priestess is fluidity, perceptive intelligence and compassionate objectivity. She reflects all that surrounds her, but is attached to none of it.

Internal freedom, especially in thought and emotion, is vital, part of the very fabric of her gown. She cannot be confined to any one stream of being.

The High Priestess understands life’s mysteries, and guards them from the uninitiated. Beneath her veil, the secrets of the world are safe.

The Devil, however, is a different sort of guy. He’s all about getting down and dirty and enjoys breaking the rules.

There’s nothing he won’t try, nothing that’s taboo. He encourages obsessions, compulsions and addictions, reveling in anything that ties you down to just one way of living.

The Devil is naked and coarse and demands submission. He can turn dreams into nightmares and love into barren sensuality.

It should be no surprise then that the High Priestess is somewhat uncomfortable in this position. She likes free emotions and flowing thought. The Devils’ sweat, dirt and chains chafe the purity of her ideals.

The Moon in Capricorn, or High Priestess in the Devil’s clothing, is a period of potential internal conflict. The physical world might seem to draw you away from what you typically believe to be right.

You might feel driven or compelled by behaviours and attitudes that go against the grain of your morality. It could be liberating or disturbing, depending on your secrets.

Whatever’s going on though, don’t be too hard on yourself. Get obsessions out of your system, and learn what you can about yourself while you do so.

You should be ready to move on soon. There’s nothing wrong with a little focused physicality. Just don’t get stuck.

This is a day for looking forward.  You’ve got some time and you’re in a good position to look around and see what you want to do next.  The world is literally in your hands and it’s up to you to decide the next move.

What is it that makes you feel most in control of your domain?  What is it that makes you feel you’re really doing what you’re supposed to be doing?

Don’t rush this – it takes some serious consideration.  Use this time to start getting a grip on your destiny.  You’re in charge of this one.  Don’t be afraid to take control.  Your option is to let someone else.

Annoying Orange and the Fortune Cookie

I don’t know if this is lighthearted psychic fun or horror, but it’s an interesting follow-up to my piece the other day on fortune cookies.

The cookie is sweet. The orange, on the other hand, is definitely annoying.

#20 Judgment from Georgie's Tarot

#20 Judgment

Thursday, March 24, 2011
#20 – Judgment

Most likely, this is an important time.  You’re probably coming to the end of a long phase and are in the process of review.  Judgment might be a heavy word to use, but that’s probably what’s going on – you’re judging yourself and your progress to date.  How do you rate yourself?  How are you rating others?   Where do you want to go next?

There’s a strong element of resurrection in this energy.  As the phase you’re in comes to a close, you ready yourself for rebirth.  Listen carefully to what your soul is trying to tell you. What have you learned through these last years? What might you want to try again? What might you want to let go of? The big question is how might you be even more alive going forward?

Enjoy this time for what it is, though it might feel confusing and even a little anxiety-ridden. Soon there will be movement. Take a good look at your past, a good look at your present and envision what you want to do next. What do you want your life to be like tomorrow? It’s up to you to make it happen.

Moon in Sagittarius – High Priestess in Temperance's Clothing

March 23rd, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

The High Priestess dressed in Temperance's Clothing

High Priestess as Temperance

The Moon moves into Sagittarius today at 4:45 pm EST and will be there until Friday at 9:25 PM.

Looking at it through the eyes of the Tarot, you can describe this transit as being like the High Priestess wearing Temperance’s clothing. She’s dressed like an angel.

The High Priestess is concerned with all ideas, big and small. She likes to look at things from every side, and reflects the multitude of feelings and attitudes around her.

She is balanced, the still point between the pillars of mercy and cruelty. Without judgment she watches and hears it all.

Her emotions don’t swamp her intellect, and her intellect doesn’t dull her feelings. At her best, the High Priestess manages both with grace and level-headedness.

Temperance is also about balance, following the mean, being temperate. As the angel stands on both earth and water, Temperance represents the ability to bridge the divide between one’s emotions and practical life.

And it’s also concerned with the big ideas. Angels are the intermediary between the planes, bringing mortals messages from on high. They provide us our ‘eureka’ moments.

The Temperance angel is engaged in pouring water, while wearing the sign of fire on his chest. He is perfect harmony.

The High Priestess is comfortable in this position. She’s at home with the middle way. Though not so accustomed to the sun, the balance between fire and water works in this case. Neither swamps, or burns out the other.

The Moon in Sagittarius, or High Priestess in Temperance’s clothing, indicates a time when intellect, practicality, emotions and passion can work together in relative ease.

What’s normally only an idea might find its way to becoming real. Even-tempered inspiration and emotional playfulness can create what look like miracles.

Take this time to bring your emotions in line with your passions. And play with your most serious ideas. It’s in combining the unexpected that you’ll likely find gold.

Wheel of Fortune

Do it now!  It’s a fantastic day to get going on whatever project (especially a new one) you’ve been thinking about.  Opportunities abound for you to finally move forward with your plan.

Don’t be afraid if you think you can’t do it?  You’ve been spending plenty of time thinking about it.  Look close, you’ll see you have all you need to make it work.

The only thing that will slow you down is doing things the same old way.  Start fresh now.  You’re ready to go.

Eastpointe, Michigan Doesn't Trust Psychics

March 22nd, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Eastpointe, Michigan in Red

Eastpointe, Michigan in Red

In order to get a license for a psychic business in Eastpointe, Michigan, you’ll now have to go through a criminal history check, list your past home addresses, submit your employment history, and be fingerprinted.

Under the new law, anyone using cards, tea leaves, psychic powers or other objects to predict the future, remove curses or ‘effectuate other activity’, must get a license from the City Clerk. It’s to be renewed annually and costs $150.

Licenses are to be prominently displayed alongside a rate schedule that must be on a sign at least 8 inches by 10 inches. Violators will face misdemeanor charges punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine.

According to Councilwoman Veronica Klinefelt, the new regulations were largely a response to newspaper articles about people, particularly seniors, being financially cheated by unscrupulous psychics.

I wonder if the articles they considered were about crimes actually committed in Eastpointe. If not, it seems a little overboard.
