Two of Cups from Georgie's Tarot

2 of Cup

It looks like it’ll be a sweet day.  Open communication full of love and tenderness.  This is a day to make sure you tell the people you love how much they mean to you.

If you’re starting a romantic relationship, or in one, it can be especially delicious.  Be romantic and enjoy each other.  It’s a time of beauty, peace and innocence, the reason we love love so much.

If you’re not feeling romantic, take the energy and let yourself simply express how much you care about those around you.

It will be most powerful if you tell them one-to-one.  Let them know they’re special, it’ll make you feel great too.

22 Acts of Kindness Inspired by Tarot's Major Arcana

September 25th, 2012 § 2 comments § permalink

The video below shows how Syed Muzamil Hasan Zaidi celebrated his 22nd birthday.

Instead of throwing a party for himself, he went ahead and performed 22 acts of random kindness for others.

I love the idea, and I love that the number of birthdays Zaidi was celebrating was 22. It caught my attention right away, reminding me of course of the 22 cards in the Major Arcana.

With Zaidi and his random acts of kindness as inspiration, I thought it might be interesting to look at the 22 Major cards to see what they might suggest in terms of kind acts.

I wasn’t thinking so much about the traditional meanings of the cards, but rather what’s in the actual pictures.

Using the Rider Waite Smith deck, I looked at each of the 22 cards and this is what I got …

22 Acts of Kindness Inspired by the Pictures in the RWS Major Arcana:

➢ The Fool – give someone a flower
➢ The Magician – lend your tools to a friend
➢ The High Priestess – send a note of thanks to someone who’s inspired you
➢ The Empress – offer a pregnant lady your seat
➢ The Emperor – give someone an orange
➢ The Hierophant – offer advice when approached
➢ The Lovers – give your unused clothes to charity
➢ The Chariot – help someone with directions
➢ Justice – tip more than is ‘fair’
➢ The Hermit – keep the porch-light on
➢ Wheel of Fortune – lend out your books
➢ Strength – be gentle with animals
➢ The Hanged Man – help a yoga-mate with their headstand
➢ Death – volunteer at or donate to a hospice
➢ Temperance – buy a friend a drink
➢ The Devil – leash your pet
➢ The Tower – donate to a disaster relief organization
➢ The Star – water your neighbour’s lawn
➢ The Moon – adopt a dog or donate to an animal shelter
➢ The Sun – smile
➢ Judgment – encourage someone with some rousing music
➢ The World – knit someone a long scarf

#20 Judgment from Georgie's Tarot

#20 Judgment

#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 likely the situation – 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 Aquarius – High Priestess in the Star's Clothing

September 24th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

High Priestess in Star’s Clothing

The Moon moves into Aquarius today and stays there until Thursday.

Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Star. In other words, her robes are gone and she’s naked as the bird in the tree behind her.

The Moon in Aquarius, or High Priestess in the Star’s clothing, can sometimes be emotionally stressful. Hope may be in the air, but it’s a cautious hope.

Emotionally you feel like sharing, bubbling over with dreams for the future. But your mind keeps getting in the way, reminding you that dreams can sometimes be nightmares.

Try not to spend what could be a nice time double guessing yourself or listing off all the reasons things could go wrong. They might. But they probably won’t.

Be real, but not a wet blanket. Rather than smothering your dreams, direct them with intelligence.

King of Cups from Georgie's Tarot

King of Cups

King of Cups

Compassion, emotional strength and mature love are key energies today.  The King of Cups understands well the joys and sacrifices involved in relationships of all kinds.

Concern yourself with how others are feeling, what they need for support and how you might help.  Through concern for the needs of others you might unexpectedly fulfill your own.

And if you know you’re needing some assistance yourself but have been afraid to ask – get over it.  Emotional generosity and support are there if you’re willing to let someone help.  But they have to know you need the help before they can offer it.

Cook County Reconsiders Psychic Business Zoning Approval

September 23rd, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Last month Cook County, Illinois zoning commissioners approved a zoning change that would have allowed a ‘tarot card psychic business’ to open in Maine Township. The Maine Township Zoning Board also approved.

Last week however, Cook County commissioners deferred the final decision on the question until next month.

Apparently, Commissioner Peter Silvestri, who represents the district in which the psychic business is located, received a petition signed by 50 people opposing the shop.

According to Journal On-line, the signatories gave no legal basis for their opposition. They simply don’t want a psychic business in the neighbourhood.

Until last month, the business had been operating without a license, but no other criminal complaints had been lodged against it.

The issue will likely be raised again at the county board’s next meeting on October 2nd.

#7 The Chariot from Georgie's Tarot

#7 The Chario

Sunday, September 23, 2012
#7 – The Chariot

Today you’ll likely see some movement. The Chariot is the card of change, the card that takes you places.  Having finally determined the direction you’d like to go, now is the time to get cracking and go there.

Changing jobs, moving house or some sort of travel are the larger manifestations of the Chariot energy.  Sometimes though, it might bring no more than a strong desire to redecorate your living room or go for a long drive.

However it plays out, try not to give up if the going gets a little tough.  More often then not, just sticking it out and playing for real is all it takes to ensure victory.  You’ve come this far already, why would you give up now?

Equinox Tarot Spread

September 22nd, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

The Sun & the Ecliptic rotation around the Earth

Today is the Autumn Equinox – or the Spring Equinox if you happen to be in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s a day of balance when the Sun and Moon hold equal reign in the sky.

Though I’m typically more excited about the onset of Spring than the beginning of Autumn, I love the day when everything switches and for a moment the whole world is somewhat aligned.

To celebrate that balance I’ve come up with an Equinox Tarot Spread focusing on achieving our own personal balance as we face a new season.

Equinox Tarot Spread

1. What does ‘balance’ mean to me?

2. In what area of my life could I use more balance?

3. What underlying motives, assumptions, or unconscious impulses might be driving me towards imbalance?

4. How can I be more positive, open, and clear in directing my energies towards realignment?

Sun in Libra – The Sun Dressed in Justice's Clothing

September 22nd, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Sun in Libra, Sun in Justice's Clothing

Sun as Justice

The Sun moves into Libra today and will stay there until October 23.

Through the eyes of the Tarot, this transit is like the Sun Child is dressed in Justice’s clothing.

The Sun in Libra, or the Sun Child dressed as Justice, is a period of enthusiastic equilibrium, a time to energize by rebalancing.

Karma is exposed, and cause and effect are more obvious than usual. It’s a great time to figure out what effects you’d like to cause going forward.

There’s power in restraint, and in letting go. The creative process needs both, not too much, not too little.

The trick, of course, is getting the balance just right. Use this month to figure out yours, and shine while you’re doing it.
