Tried to be sneaky.

HERMITCUPS six ofIt was a no go. I pulled the Hermit card and because circumstances in my life made me say, “Oh, come on. This has to be a joke!” I tried to be sneaky and pull another card. I pulled the Six of Cups which in a way is kind of the same damned thing (well – sort of…cups usually denotes a relationship and this six card means that there may be some nostalgia about the past, but reality is good and that “in love” feeling is real not a passing fancy). Either way it looks like some alone time is in order. I know I personally can’t pull that off so the way I’m going to interpret this for me is to make sure I at least do something nice for myself. To make myself a priority amidst all the have-to-run-this-errand, have-to-do-this, and have-to-get-done that will be happening. So however you manage it, some introspection is clearly in order, some alone time with your thoughts, some reflection. Good things are on the horizon.

The Sun

The SUNWell it doesn’t really get any better than this card. And what a spectacular card to get at the top of a new week! The Sun card indicates a time of clarity, renewed trust and optimism. Success is within your grasp. You are starting to see what all that hard work was about and you are moving forward.


Queen of Wands

WANDS queen ofWarmth, constancy, loyalty. All good things. You will be reminded of these things today, either by someone having your back or you yourself exhibiting these stellar qualities. Keep those home fires burning. Hold in your mind exactly how you want your life to be and then stay the course; it’s the only way to get there.

Ace of Swords

SWORDS ace ofA little struggle is good, right? It’s always the hard A, not the easy A, that is more satisfying. Out of this struggle, or conflict, a new creative viewpoint will emerge. Change is coming.

Temperance and the Radio Silence

TemperanceWell. I had an intense ten days but I am back online. I had this wonderful plan to pull cards for the time I was running and living at a residency I was responsible for. I thought I would be super efficient and type them all up and have them auto post. Well. It didn’t happen. The residency was NUTS. To give you an idea of how nuts – the first two days I worked 20-hour days back to back, there wasn’t one night when my phone didn’t ring past 11:30 pm with a problem, and twice I had to get up at 4:00 a.m. All I can say is I am grateful for my wonderful interns, and the spectacular help of my fiancee. It would have been impossible without them. I’ve been home two days and finally feel like I can get my life back on track. And what a wonderful card to pull! Temperance has always been one of my favorite cards. It’s so beautiful, but it also represents the need for the flow of feeling in a relationship. The rainbow depicted represents the potential for harmony and cooperation. So what’s going in with you? Have you been feeling cut off, maybe isolated, maybe misunderstood? Now is the time to put things back in balance. Go with the flow, and work to bring back balance and harmony in your relationships – and always remember that the biggest relationship we have in our lives is with ourselves.
