:: Updates + The Tarot Weekly: January 3 - 9, 2011 ::

Scott K

Well, hello again from the other side of 2011. I've been sick for about two weeks and having finally gotten the rest needed to be well I've got a skip in my step and a twinkle in my eye. Beware the twinkle. *giggle* Whether it is the rest and recovery or the pervasive sense of newness and optimism that I have about entering a new year and a new decade, I feel good things, they are a coming.

Updates

These things come of changes and not all changes are sunshine and lollipops. I made some significant changes while in my down time. Cocooned I thought a few things, which I will mention here because you probably wont see them in my blog any more.

First I love food and I like to write about it but I'm moving that over to stay at Twitter and Facebook. Tho I can't say I wont ever post anything on food, I don't plan on adding recipe's to the posts on health and well-being on Friday's any longer. Those types of posts don't seem to jive with my new vibe. That said I'm also bowing out of the news at Lifencompass. Again, I will relegate that to the facebook and / or twitter, or personal account pages. For me, I don't see the benefit of the Spirit of Lifencompass.

I do have some lovely new, warm, glowing things coming like limited edition zines (they're not what you would expect), and a healing circle late this month for friends and students that will open up to the public for those that are interested in healing topics. Expect a post about the healing circle later in the month, I'm planning for the end of January.

Any-who, those are my updates, let's dig into the weekly. :)

Tarot Weekly

Re-address your ideas, plans, and progress from new eyes. Put yourself in the place of beginnings, new energy, direction, projects, year, and new decade. Alternatives are being presented to you, facets of the "truth" that can be seen from different angles. It's important to recognize that our view is limited. It's cliché, maybe, but true. When we are open to different takes on what we believe we could walk away with a grander design.

Four of wands (R) cautions us about a limited vision, the narrow focus but also says (spiritually) that there is still movement or transition occurring. This could justify tunnel vision as we focus on each step, "processing," or detailing our progress in change. That is OK. The footnote is that we don't want our head bent to far forward into the minutia that we miss the opportunity of other voices that have the potential to be exponentially beneficial to our projects.

Note: Mercury Retrograde is over folks. There was a high level of creative input during this phase of Mercury (R) and it's time to put it out there, or at least put it into motion. But these are sketches, drafts, you  might seek your editor, critique, or other constructive voices to find how you can take what you have to a whole new level.

SHARE.

Folding back in on yourself (ahem... note to self here) can be counter-productive to any new goals you may have.

So, in short.

  • Keep a high note with new ideas.
  • Open yourself up to alternatives to the path or process.
  • Seek potential partners or new perspectives on any resolutions.
  • Watch the "go solo" push. Although you could probably succeed at what you are aiming for, you would also probably benefit most from collaborators. Check it out before you try to go it alone. You may find insights, help, new creative spins that will rocket your plans into new stratosphere's.

My new ideas are flashy. Personally what I would like to accomplish reminds me of the peacock, and that is why the feathers appear in the Tarot Weekly. I do however feel a similarity or cross-over with the Phoenix... Is that a Phoecock (Phoenix Peacock?). LOL. Anyway. It's important to me to mention because the vision of the fiery feathered bird appeared in my minds eye at the start when I called in the Guides, Gods and the Hidden Company to be present and deliver the reading.

A Phoenix is reborn from the ashes. An idea is brought back to life, flaming, bright, and with all the (natural) pageantry of the peacock.

Something to think on. Gather this all, roll it around in your meditation, and the answer will come to you.

Promise.
