update coming up — watch this get full-blown

Sometimes I find it funny when I get jokes from guys asking me if I ever get to predict critical stuff happening around us, like about my current health condition (astrology helped me this time last Monday) & one of my batchmates’s quitting a long time ago (the first to go from our class a couple of months back, & no, even I didn’t see that coming, as I wasn’t attuned to her that time). Do people think I’m a total quack or something when I need to focus on more pressing matters like work & other Pentacles-related concerns, like family & sanity (oh, that falls under the suit of Swords as well) sans my beloved deck of cards?

happy Earth day!

Taken from my most favorite tarot resources:

from the Golden Tarot deck
Knight of Pentacles

Try to keep your feet on the ground at this time. You may be offered an opportunity to lead others towards material prosperity, and they might count on you to be the one who has the practical plan, has organized the event, or set the budget. You may not feel adequately compensated for your efforts, but try to let your compassion and nurturing nature balance that out. If there is something weighing heavily on your mind at this time, pausing to consider your options and the possible ramifications of your choice may be wise, for without hesitation or a certain amount of careful consideration, you could end up in deep water, lose your way, or otherwise end up on a shaky foundation. More than likely, you are trustworthy, compassionate, stable, and honest, and it is this combination of qualities that help others to feel comfortable putting their faith in you, even if at times, you feel dull, anxious, or pressured by the heavy burden of your responsibilities.

Pretty relevant card, I should say. Learn more about it here.

Do you think we’ll ever get to see this spectacle? Or did it just pass me by again because I was too tired yesterday? I’ll try to catch it tonight if possible.

& this is why I’m a big fan of spas. Heck, even if it doesn’t really show & I still need to find the perfect facialist, all I care about is feeling comfortable & satisfied with myself, especially with the way things are going with my life.

Funny, I don’t have dry eyes. My eyes are always watery as heck when I’m tired, but I am pretty much dehydrated most of the time, especially this summer. But remind me to get Visine & to maximize my breaks more efficiently.

Thank you, JR, for finally getting the drat anti-spam app working for this blog. I am sick of crazy non-related automated messages flooding this site, & finally I can allow automatic acceptance of comments. Well, maybe not now, though.

for me, Mental Health Day is always every other day

Sometimes it’s just too hard to follow good advice & succumb to old, more comfortable ways. Especially when you’re on your way to splendid brokedom come & getting undisturbed sleep for 6 hours just don’t cut it.

In other news, I’m just happy that Saturn’s finally turning direct this week! One retrograde down, 2 more to go. Are you feeling the heat? Let’s all strive to rise above the ashes!

whimsical is my game

I’m thrilled to realize that Miss Potter was like a Tarot journey of some sorts. She started out as The Fool & ended up being in the 9 of Coins, with her being the Queen of Coins, of course. Yes, even Death & the Tower were featured, & I cried heaps as I watched their manifestations, like what I did during Bridge to Terabithia (which, btw, sucked). She reminds me of my own self (especially with our view on marriage & maternal issues, HAH!) as well as of my dear late quirky youngest sister (for their penchance in adorable art & whatnot). I loved Peter Rabbit. He was my first ever fanfiction inspiration (I started writing it when I was 6, but the story dwindled into utter belligerence as I myself was constantly breaking the rules by skipping school & getting into fights with boys up to the 4th grade) & I still feel compelled to collect his books, if not give them away to my nephew & godkids. I love this movie, & yet I don’t readily recommend it to everyone, unless you’re in dire need of a diversion from your usual fare, & you like breathtaking countrysides scenes. I’m such a girl that way.

I also would have to congratulate Ly for getting his Vanessa Tarot published & released (by U.S. Games Systems, no less! OMG!) overseas (as usual). We deserve to go to next week’s annual Tarot Readers Studio in New York, but maybe I’ll just wait until next year, as soon as I get enough vacation leaves or so. Sigh.

I bought the Winter 2006 issue of Yoga Life & I’m thinking of snagging this book as well while everything’s on sale, but maybe tomorrow. I still have to go through this resource before anything else readable, anyway.

As for today’s Tarot card, let me change the sheets & rearrange my stuff before I can draw something significant.
