Balance new projects with present duties: Weekly influences for August 17th, 2015

Two of Coins, Magician, Reversed Nine of Batons

Week of August 17, 2015


Two of Coins

The Magician

Nine of Batons (reversed)



Balance. Caution. Due diligence: All of these things are necessary when starting a new project, whether it’s by yourself or with others.

This week, obstacles will affect your ability to balance new tasks with present duties. The two of coins tells us that new projects are the theme of the week, from universities beginning classes, to children heading back to school, to parents finally having the time to initiate their own projects. The attic awaits…

While the Magician is in the zone and actively creating their new reality, they are influenced by the obstacles and cautions represented in the Two of Coins and reversed Nine of Batons. The Magician is marshaling all of their resources for their new venture, their work begins to consume their focus completely. A brilliant creator can do great things, but needs to remember to balance current and new ventures.

Partners experiencing health issues, delays, situations that create new troubles and disaster are possible. The delicate balance that was achieved could fail, delaying everything, not simply the latest venture.

How do we overcome this?

Due diligence: proper research and evaluation with a sprinkling of caution, combined with the creativity and flexibility that you possess will aid you. Rushing in to a new project with all enthusiasm, without balancing the rest of your duties, is not the answer. Discipline, patience, and self-control will win the week for you.

Realistic time tables and workloads, from a management perspective, will prevent the disasters and delays cautioned against in the reversed Nine of Wands. Expect and plan for obstacles, take into consideration those of your team who are pointing out possible problems. Dismiss their input at your peril.

Until next week.

August 2015 Monthly Reading- Don’t get stuck!

Monthly Reading for August: Tarot influences: August 2015

We’re into the 8th month of the year here in my area of the country, and summer manifests itself as hot, muggy, with the occasional monsoonal flow that teases us with the promise of a thunderstorm.

August is a month of transition here, where families are preparing to send children back to school. It’s the last month of summer vacation. People are preparing to re-enter “the grind” of day to day work in the cities.

Where I grew up, August is traditionally when harvest started, and my friends who were lucky enough to live in the country on farms had the chore of helping out from dawn to dusk-before and after school.

What can we look forward to this month? What must we guard against?

Tower reversed, Six of Coins, Knight of Coins

Influences for the month of August, 2015.


The Tower: reversed

The Six of Coins

The Knight of Coins



Change is frightening. It’s terrifying, especially when it’s sudden and catastrophic change that is the usual warning of the Tower card. However, in this aspect, the Tower warns against stagnation: It is very easy to slide back into the old routines after a summer of change and new directions.

Be sure that you are not acting according to old patterns which have left you stuck in an unhappy situation in the past. Make the changes that you need, and make sure that they are effective and worthwhile.

Enjoy your success. Be generous, be philanthropic. Many charities begin their pre-holiday drives this time of year. Try volunteering time instead of donating money. Don’t get stuck in a complacent pattern!  Clear your desk and task list for a fresh start into the Fall season.

Organization and capability are the key to this.  A thoughtful and dependable person can help you guard against uncertainty, and assist you in concluding projects and tasks which were left hanging over the summer, so that you’re not stuck dealing with them into the Autumn season.

Be well.

March 30, 2015 Daily Influences: Happily guard your health

Happily guard your health.

Daily influences for March 30, 2015

Ten of Cups

Eight of Cups (Reversed)

Strength (Reversed)


Happiness and a felicitous family life at home are two keys to maintaining good health, whether you are a family of four or of two.


Let sustained effort result in a good harvest and feasting, but take care! You don’t want to imbibe too much.  Not everyone has a cast-iron stomach with the strength to contain everything.


Indifference to the physical condition, succumbing to the temptations, weakness.. these can lead to ill health. However, tyrannically following too strict a diet, abuse, and other factors can also be very damaging.


Know yourself. Know your weaknesses, and your strengths.  Be balanced, vigilant.


The key to your future is, as always, in your actions.


Technical difficulties

My apologies for the incomplete post and the lack of posting the past couple of days.  We had some technical issues which, thankfully, have been recovered from.

Recognition: Daily Influences for February 10, 2015

Rise, and be bold in your accomplishments!

Daily Influences for Feb 10, 2015

Ten of Coins
Five of Cups
The Emperor



Wealth, prosperity, and possible promotion or recognition from higher ups are seen in today’s influences.

Be recognized for your achievements and hard work!  Reap the rewards of your efforts.  Wealth and acknowledgement comes to you, but it’s up to you to be a careful steward of that which you have earned.

Fickle partnerships where one person takes the credit not due to them are undesirable.  Don’t be afraid to speak up, and document, document, document your work!

Recognition is important. Make sure you’re receiving it for all of the right reasons, and none of the wrong ones.  Give credit and accolades where they are due.

Treachery takes many forms: Daily influences for Monday, February 9, 2015.

february 9, 2015Three of Batons (Reversed)

The Universe

Eight of Swords (Reversed)



Treachery.  It takes many forms, from the blatant lies of a person trying to persuade their friend that the reasons for their divorce are just, to the offers of help from one whom you know that strings are always attached.

This is today- fulfillment, the culmination of effort, success and the completion of tasks.  This is what is, in the face of past treachery, accidents, fatality, and other possible perils that make up our lives.

Would you know more?

Justice (Reversed)

The Wheel of Fortune (Reversed)



Today’s influences highlight great change, the exposure of injustice, and the forces of Fortune turning-in this case, downward? Or, perhaps, upward?

It could be a big news day.

Time will tell.

The pre-Valentine’s day tension begins….

The pre-Valentine’s day tension begins….


Five of Swords
Seven of Coins
The Lovers (Reversed)



It’s that time of year for the pre-Valentine’s day tension, stress, and breakup- where consumers are told that their love is tested by what they purchase.
Indications for today’s influences can be boiled down to the fact that money doesn’t buy lasting love.

Watch for dishonor, cheating, miscommunication, and defeat with regard to your goals. However, you’ll have wealth left over at the end of the fight.

Careful planning, truly knowing your partners and yourself, and clear communication, honesty, and forthrightness will mitigate the detrimental influences of the day.
