Hope and a Short Hiatus

Hello Folks,

Just a quick post. I haven't been feeling that good lately. Scratch that. I've been feeling awful! I've had some vertigo, weird gastrointestinal symptoms, difficulty eating and sleeping, and just lots of extreme tiredness, etc, etc, insert boring, annoying symptoms here. Ugh. Anyway. I'm going to take a break from blogging until New Year's Day, but I decided to pull a card before I flee.

Here's the card I got. Hope! Nice card, right? Out of desperation (because I'm a cheapskate/often broke and hate having to go in to see anyone), I went to a holistic nutritionist/chiropractor/acupuncture/etc lady who came highly recommended from several ladies from my daughter's school. I called this morning and managed to get a short appointment today. I went and, although there is work to be done and it'll take time, I feel more hopeful than I did, which is not necessarily saying much considering my mood from before.

Because I don't feel so hot and I don't want to exhaust myself and exacerbate my symptoms any further, I am not going on the trip that I originally planned to go on.

In any event, I am wishing you all a joyous and positive close to 2014.

I'll catch up with y'all soon!

The Home Within

I love this card....it has such a cozy feeling. I like the simple but important concept presented here, that home is more of a feeling than a location. I've been noticing this more after moving. That the center of my sanity lies within me (cue cheesy muzak) and that this is what I need to cultivate and encourage.

End of Year Influences Reading

Mostly for the purpose of cataloging this draw, I am posting it here. It's the end of the year Tea Leaf pull. Interesting. I will definitely go back to it and see what I can glean from it.

Crossroads and Paths

So I pulled this quad of cards this morning. I didn't interpret it, only in the sense that I saw there was a repeat card (Sleeper), and some interesting visual elements that could be interpreted in various ways.

Not having much background in some of these characters, I looked up Hecate. Here's a very brief description I found:

From the Greek 'Εκατη (Hekate), possibly derived from 'εκας (hekas) meaning "far off". In Greek mythology Hecate was a goddess associated with witchcraft, crossroads, tombs, demons and the underworld.

Hecate - Behind the Name


Once I read this I saw that there were two cards of the four that talked about a crossroads or choice. I don't have much time left to blog and for some reason I'm having a lot of trouble finding any information on this Pitcher character. Anyone have any ideas of the mythology behind this figure? Please let me know if you do!

Much Love,

Sleeper: Feminine Intuition

I was unpacking my tarot and oracle boxes, as we're hoping to gradually unpack, sort through and donate a large amount of items that have no homes yet. The sunroom (which is basically like a freezer right now because there's no heat to it and we don't want to incur the cost to heat it while we're not using it) houses a large number of totes and boxes from our move.

Due to decreased space in the new house, we have to think hard about how we want to manage all this junk! We've had to purchase storage solutions like cubes/shelves/cabinets, due to a lack of closet space. But there's only so much that we can hold/store/stow away. We don't want to clutter up the new house! So, I'm preparing to do all of that.

Anyway...back to the card. I pulled this card this morning after finding the Moon Oracle. Unfortunately, I believe I accidentally got rid of the book that accompanies this deck, during one of my major purges of the books. Thankfully, I didn't lose any of the other books to my decks.

I haven't found a replacement book for this on Amazon. I may end up buying the oracle itself all over again, used, for $8. Some of these cards seem fairly easy to interpret without a book, but others are less self-explanatory.

This one strikes me as being like a cross between the High Priestess and the 4 of Swords. A very yin, very intuitive combo. I will have to sleep on it! Hehee.
