Moderation, Respite, and Inner Awakening

Moderation, Respite, and Inner Awakening

I prefer the Universal Waite deck to the traditional Rider-Waite because the scenes are more clear. I haven’t used it in a while so I thought I’d bring it out for today’s reading. I wanted to look at influences of both Spirit and form, so I chose a six card spread with three cards above […]

Polarity In Balance

Polarity In Balance

Balanced polarity is the theme of today’s tarot reading. One card from the Major Arcana along with two Court cards, one from the suit of Pentacles and the other from Swords surround a card from the suit of Cups. Earth, Air, and Water are represented with Fire absent from the reading. The overall numerology is 1 […]

Women Will Never Shut Up Again

Women Will Never Shut Up Again

The downside of shitting all over Hillary Clinton for writing a book about the presidential campaign is that it will serve as a rallying cry for women of a certain age who have experienced enough misogyny over our lifetime. We watched in horror as the most qualified person to run for the highest office in […]

It’s Over. You’re Done.

It’s hard I guess for you to grow up. To continue to act like a child when you don’t get your way. To be so full of yourself that you don’t realize the trail of evidence you leave behind, thus sealing your fate. To let anger drive you on into more and more inappropriate behavior. […]

Dear Donald: Oregon Is Burning. Why Won't You Help Us?

Dear Donald: Oregon Is Burning. Why Won’t You Help Us?

The smoke was so thick last night, Donald, that my husband and I decided to shut off the irrigation water to avoid taking on further smoke. Jerry needed a reprieve from all the smoke he breathed in during the day. He’s painting the new cover over the pipe and well site. We belong to a […]

Celtic Cross: Balancing Emotions with Intellect

Celtic Cross: Balancing Emotions with Intellect

Ten cards typically comprise the Celtic Cross. However, a modified spread also exists that includes a separate significator card, and that’s spread I’ll use today. There are varied interpretations associated with each card in a Celtic Cross spread but the interpretations found in the Druid Craft tarot resonate the most. The Queen of Swords is […]

All We Needed Was More Paint

All We Needed Was More Paint

Why do I ever leave the house? We needed more paint for the cover over the new well and the pipe from it to the cistern so we headed to the local home improvement stores in the area where we bought the first gallon. My husband is the system operator for our community well and […]

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Donald, who are you praying for today? Are you praying for your soul as you tell somewhere in the neighborhood of 800,000 DACA recipients that they have to go back home when they’re already home? They come out of the shadows after it was finally safe to do so and they have to now deal with […]

As Wildfire Smoke Hangs Heavily About, I Created An Herbal Infusion So That I Can Breathe

As Wildfire Smoke Hangs Heavily About, I Created An Herbal Infusion So That I Can Breathe

Oregon is still burning and the smoke was so thick this morning when I was outside watering that I frantically ran around gathering what I could from the yard to take back in the house for this morning’s tea. Given the dense smoke I was experiencing I gathered as many respiratory herbs I could find […]

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

The rune, Dagaz, from the Elder Futhark indicates a new day arising from awakening and enlightenment. I thought I’d use its shape for today’s tarot reading. After the hurricane and the president that we currently have, we could all use a new day. But let’s see what the cards say. Sometimes I begin in one […]
