Alchemical Thoughts

Archive for January 5th, 2019

As noted previously, you can find all the prompts here; Lisa Frideborg Eddy, the author, has put them in a PDF book that you can download for free. For this series, I am using the Santa Muerte Tarot deck.

Challenge: Without thinking about how you feel, pull a card from the Tarot to reflect back to you how you truly feel about your relationship status. What does the card show you? Are you being honest with yourself? Pull another card for how to improve your relationship status in the New Year.

On how I feel about my relationship status: Seven of Pentacles. This actually makes sense as it can feel like a puzzle at times. It is something I put work in, and there are days I wonder if the efforts will yield results. Patience is key here. There are ups and downs, maybe a small drought, but with patience and work fruits will come.

On how can I improve my relationship status: Eight of Wands. Need to put more passion and energy into it. The commitment is already there, things are in motion, so may as well jump in, be less passive. Give it your highest energy.

Overall, the outlook is positive. Things are stable. Time to add a spark, light a fire.

 

Now that December’s whirlwind is calming down, I have some time to start posting these again. As noted previously, you can find all the prompts here; Lisa Frideborg Eddy, the author, has put them in a PDF book that you can download for free. For this series, I am using the Santa Muerte Tarot deck.

Challenge: How lucky or unlucky were you in 2018? Perhaps you feel luck had nothing to do with anything that happened in your life. Let’s see what the Tarot has to say about it. Pull a card for what sort of luck you had in 2018 and another for the kind of luck you will have in 2019.

Luck is not something I think about much. It’s either for gamblers or lottery players. I prefer the idea of making good “luck” if you work at it. But overall 2018 had more good breaks than bad. That’s something.

Interesting to me that I drew two pages. Right away this indicates small steps, beginnings. Luck in a small scale, small breaks rather than big lucky moments.

On my luck in 2018: Page of Swords. The luck here was based on some planning. Before starting anything, take a seat, plan, think, and reflect. Giving careful thought, being cautious so as to avoid grief and misfortune. The idea was that things might be peaceful but they could suddenly change, so be prepared.

This also reminded me of a quote from a book I am reading at the moment. The context in the book is Lord Commissar Rasp mentoring Commissar Yarrick, again, on the need for caution, especially when things seem easy or calm:

“Our rapid triumph is a certain conclusion, and is therefore not to be trusted. When matters are at their most cut-and-dried is when you must be most wary” (17). —Yarrick: Imperial Creed.

 

On my luck in 2019: Page of Pentacles. Again, small steps. Try to save a few coins here or there for rainy days. Also, this speaks of preparation, especially in practical and material things. Remain observant, learn, save. Saving is not just money. It can also mean be more selective with use of time and other resources, “bank it” where you can for use later, whether for yourself or to share with others.
