Slip Away

Tarot Egyptien Oracle of the Dames ~ Support and Protection

So much to say, so little point.
The world has drained me this month, even more than the usual.
I rail that we can be so blind. So callous. So self centered and self serving. So utterly cruel to those who need support and protection.
It is nothing new, it is apparently the only nature humans can summon.
I fail to be a better human by doing nothing but think myself sick.

I'm going to slip away for a little while.
Give my own well a chance to refill with something stronger than despair and gentler than rage.

Biggest. Money. Ever.

Tarot Egyptien Oracle of the Dames ~ Knight of Coins

#66 If drawn for a soldier this card is a sign of peace. If drawn for a young girl next to #33 danger awaits.

On the other hand, the non-fortune telling hand, it is a good looking horse and a coin...perhaps a night on the town is in order.

There is a thought for a busy leader, mint bigger money, the lowlies will think they have more of it. The biggest money ever.

So Soon?

Tarot Egyptien Oracle of the Dames ~ 6 of Swords

#56 If this card is near #4 you risk being attacked by a gang of thieves.

Another government election, so soon? Paddle harder...

Guilty Improvidence

Tarot Egyptien Oracle of the Dames ~ 9 of Wands

#27 Interests in a distant shipment being compromised by guilty improvidence. An Amazon shipment slowed by a drunk driver?

I'm waiting for the towel rack for the new bathroom. It probably should have been here by now. Is this fortune telling? At it's worst. Enough truth and no way to verify it isn't.

Life is short and daylight's burning.

Be A Spy Or Be Spied Upon

Tarot Egyptien Oracle of the Dames ~ Page/Jack of Swords

#53 Lack of foresight, beset by a spy.

I never had a job that paid high enough or was important enough to make it worth someone's while to mess with. But I often worked just below it, and watching the jockeying and positioning and one upmanship that goes on was a combination of errpness and comedy.

You learn early on if you don't want to get dirty stay out of it, or to jump in early and swim. So many choices in life, based on complicated delicate psyche.

$21.974 Trillion

Tarot Egyptien Oracle of the Dames ~ 2 of Coins

A fortune teller's deck indeed.
#76  It isn't work causing the heavy burden, it is your friends. Consult Tarot more often because your spirit is too worried.

People do use the cards this way, reading obsessively on one or two subjects. Affairs of the heart being the number one subject. Finance related probably number two.

If I could reboot the school system it would be to add financial common sense courses. From grade one.  Then we'd see why $21.974 trillion in national debt is unsustainable. We deserve what is coming. We worked so hard to get to this point...one vote at a time.

Tone Deaf

Tarot Egyptien Oracle of the Dames ~ 3 of Swords

#61 Persistently mismanaging resources, careless behavior.

If we don't learn from consequences what do we learn from?
As Dr. Phil says "how's that workin' for you?"
Thickheaded? = Lots of 3 of Swords life events. Culminating in 8 Swords, 9 Swords, 10 Swords. The really sad part? We seldom take just ourselves down, we also harm those around us.

Non-standard Happy Families

Pagan Otherworlds ~ 10 of Cups

 Thursday's suggested day of relaxation with Friday's thoughtful examination of details, morphed into the Veterans Memorial Museum in Chehalis Washington. Right on the interstate, a place I've meant to visit for twenty years and hadn't. Shame, it is worth the time, and repeated visits are in order.

Which leads to the 10 of Cups and the suggestion of a close family, often waving goodbye. Rob's been cleaning out his bookshelves and albums and magazines. There is a pile developing of important, what the hell to do with it. Serendipity...the veterans memorial wants it. For sure, his family won't, even the artifacts dating back a century+.
We'll be waving goodbye, in our usual non-standard happy families way.

Impermanent Position

Pagan Otherworlds Tarot ~ King of Cups

Brain in low gear, just hanging out. maybe doing something no one watching understands. That celebrity style hype missing. That non-reality sensationalism gone.

This is a odd framed portrait of a King. Taking note of the little things, impressed with the handwork in his robe or the loss of life required to provide it. Sitting in an impermanent tidal position, alone with his thoughts, recognizing humans are short-timers, having that 4 of Swords day he missed yesterday. A healthy Rx for everyone.

Jammie Day, Not

Pagan Otherworlds Tarot ~ 4 of Swords

Slept in to 5 AM. Popped out of bed, made my ablutions as mother would say, made my coffee, shuffled and drew, and kind of wilted. On my to-do list this morning is fling the audible book pile to ebay, the ones that weren't up to the paper ones they replaced.

Ebay was fun in the years I parted out personal estates, now, just a place to work with no idea what or if payday will result, and a lot of ways to screw up or get screwed. So this card and a glance at that pile shouted Jammie Day (avoidance)...instead.

Perhaps rather a carrot on a stick. A morning drive tomorrow, freezing crisp, blue sky, sunshine. A favorite kind of day and it has been a long time since I've had an Artist Date. And  the listed pile won't be staring me in the right ear, it will be moved to the let the money roll in space. (Y) in gear, rest another day.

edited, later: 13 books, 1 hour 20 minutes. Finished. Such a crybaby...

Toe In The Rivlet

Pagan Otherworlds Tarot ~ Temperance

My name is Sharyn and I have a hair-trigger temper.
Once I learned how destructive it can be to myself and others, I've leashed, stomped, drowned, beaten it back, get it offa me day in day out.

But perhaps I'm like Hulk's Dr. Banner. I'm always angry, not suddenly angry. A small difference of viewpoint. Toe in the water. A small rivlet of steady anger management.

If I were perfect I couldn't stand myself. It would probably make me angry.

Hindsight in 3-D

Pagan Otherworlds Tarot ~ 6 of Swords

In 2019 reading this 6 of Swords post from 2008 referencing 1990, I can read the story in reverse. The whys. The reactions. The results. What I learned, what I'll never do again, not in a billion years. That result shifted my craft to places I'd wish it hadn't, but the choices made perhaps saved my life in the end. We'll see if I feel the same way in 2028.

One thing that won't change is how much stuff I'm willing to haul. My boat is small, but can still carry everything I need. And one of the swords is a steering pole, where it goes is my choice not the current.

Nymphaeaceae

Pagan Otherworlds Tarot ~ Ace of Cups

New contemplations. Why do our feelings come into it? Why an aversion toward or attraction to? Why like buttons?  Why was a lily pad designed with a split? A drain system. My first thought was easier access for frogs. Maybe, no reason there can't be two or ten reasons for how or why anything works.

I doubt there are many virgin thoughts. Humans don't live long enough to finish the ones we get. But they are free, infinitely moldable and expandable. What a nice way to start a new week; where can we squeeze it too get the best part parts out, or the sour over with?

Wrong Bus

Pagan Otherworlds Tarot ~ Tower

Suppose she fell silently or did that dress whiffle and snap in the wind? I wonder why she was up there? Were the wallbound spiral stairs still intact? Would something this ancient still have the exposed beams? Or is the disrepair recent war damage. Or was it suicide, or murder, specific or immaterial to the location?

After a Tower event we can look backward and find the trail that led to this moment. Sometimes we just happen to be crossing the street in front of a bus. Wrong place, wrong time.

Life. Can't Live Without It

Tree Wisdom Cards ~ Worry

At 12:00 AM I was worrying about wounded vets, spineless politicians, dams and earthquakes, and where my little brother is.


at 12:00 PM I was worrying about shot weed and paint colors and filling bobbins, and where my little brother is.

Life. Can't live without it.

January Done And Dusted

Tree Wisdom Cards ~ Possibilities

What will I learn this month?
Where will I go?
Who will I talk to ?

Nothing mind boggling I expect. Most of life is small moments, progress, and events. I hit the ground running that now gone month in the new year. Freeing stuff up freed up the mind, always the case.

I jerked myself out of little potholes, the kind that can become energy sinkholes. Didn't manage the MP3 player and I think my $30.00  I want back from the ITunes app store is history, but they have  no idea what that will cost them in the long run. I have a long memory...for some things.
