Hi, i haven't been around for a while - with the relocation and all... :)
I am thinking of dinner cancelling, it seems to be a good idea;
i pulled a card from Russian VR, its the Magician.
I guess its a good sign sign here, as if he says - all is possible - will report how it goes.

Ohh, and more on DC here:

I asked "what do I need to know tonight" of my Kissa Tarot and got the 7 of pentacles.

This is a very unusual 7 of pents, so I'm just going to describe what I see and read whatever comes up, rather than think about the traditional meaning.

I walk through a peculiar and dard forest with my white cat. My dress is blue and there are mountains behind us. I carry a huge flower that is almost as large as I am. A light shines out from it, lighting our way so that we do not trip on the trail. Around us are trunks of trees, but instead of leaves and branches there are only red and gold pentacles.

I feel as though I'm in an enchanted forest. A white cat of innocence and purity is leading the way. The light of my being shines ahead of us, and I feel safe, even though this forest is quite odd and seems as though it should be frightening. I'm wearing my ruby red slippers and perhaps I feel safe because I know I can simply tap my feet together three times and know that "there's no place like home."

Am I deluding myself that I'm safe? Or is this mysterious place real? And if its real, what is around the next corner. I need to stay the course to find out.

I chose from my new Kissa Tarot.

8 of swords.

This 8 is not frightening or worrisome. This deck speaks in a very gentle voice.

A woman sits on a log by the side of a path. A white cat sits on her lap. Her way is barred by a black cat, and swords line the path ahead of her. A full moon shines on the scene, and bright flowers mirror her red dress. I get a sense of stopping on her path to think about the fears ahead. Of not being sure she can move forward out of her comfort zone. This sounds like me the last month or two. Sitting around a lot eating candy instead of getting on with things. Interestingly, there is a patch of bright flowers among all the darkness on the other side of the swords. If she can just get up off her log and walk through those swords she'll see that the future is every bit as bright as the past.

Actually that's a good idea, especially with our already intense and hectic routines.
I think I will follow suit.

the other thing I have to say is that I hadn't seen the daily posts, and now on this thread I see why.

Personally, when I went through my emails each morning and saw the new post, I'd hit it and do it, which was my reminder to come here and join in. Now it wasn't there, and so I hadn't been coming. Any thoughts on going back to the daily, or perhaps weekly draw posts?

Good morning !!

Had the most awesome day yesterday!! I went horse back riding for the first time in 25 years!! I am sooooooooooooo sore but it was worth it!!

I'm going to try something different on my draws. I'm only going to draw once a week (as oppose to everyday), and take the week to study and apply that card's lesson.

Gilded tarot 8 of cups

I decided to just open myself up and asked to be pointed in my weight loss direction for 2011.

I drew the 8 of cups. Its all about change, moving, ideas. I believe loosing weight takes the cooperation of mind, body and spirit. This card reminds me that I need to change not just what I've been doing physically,but how I'm approaching things on a mental and spiritual level.

Have a great Monday team : )

w/love, Dawn

When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food, and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself.

It's my first day back on full steam with everything. A time of much renewal. And I am very happy to be back!

COTD:
From the One Card Tarot Deck
Six of Swords (Science): Trusting in intelligence and intuition and setting off into the unknown. Leaving an untenable situation and charting a new course. Passage from difficulty and progress towards a solution. The road to recovery. Travel and exploration.

Oh Goddess does this ring true for what is happening in my life right now. It's not so much about my weighloss etc life, but about that of someone who I am close to and involved with, and is a child. She just as her appendix removed on Friday and there is much happening for her and subsequently us as her support & friends in her life. I love the feel of this, that it shows leaving the discord into new grounds... YES!

Medieval Cats Tarot

9 of coins

A cat holds a bouquet of flowers, and is examining one of the roses with his other hand. He looks sublimely content. Serene and at peace with his life. This is how I've been feeling the last couple of days. Appreciative of where and who I am, even though things aren't perfect. Appreciating what I have, and accepting all.

I asked about how I can re-focus my energies onto healthy eating and exercise again.

Rabbit Tarot, the World.

The little white rabbit lays on the ground of a beautiful and serene landscape. She juggles the world (or a large ball) on her feet. She looks serious, but serene. Calm, focused, meditative. The world/ball is a soft blue, like water.

This card reminds me to get outside. To enjoy nature, and tune into the natural cycles of the earth. It reminds me to simply do it. When thinking of exercise, just lay right down and start peddling/juggling/hiking/whatever. That if I'm to have the strength to juggle my world, I need to be healthy enough to do it. That's a heavy ball/world to juggle. It will take strength, focus, and wholeness.

For such a "light" deck, I think it has a lot to say!!! :)

Celbratory and happy memories. What came to mind here is that I am making memories this year for what is to come. I am enjoying the holiday more this year because I am feeling optimum due to staying away from all the sugar. There are still many treats I can have that are nutritous and make me feel good.

Question: what I can do to be good to myself and help me stay on track. The answer is to work on mastery of my craft. I love my work and I love giving, but what really fuels is the time I spend with cards and meditation. I guess it's time to devote more time to that. Which I have been since joining this group.

I used my old friend the Morgan Greer today. :)

The Tower! Yikes!!!

I don't have any clue what this could mean today. Its a beautiful tower card. Dark and stormy and wild. And as much as is happening around it, lightning, huge crashing waves, fire, wind, and falling people, the tower itself looks mighty and strong. Perhaps, since I've been thinking a lot about cancer (this is my second anniversary of diagnosis and first anniversary of completing treatment) this card reminds me that I survived all that trauma and am strong enough to move forward.

I pulled from my brand new (to me) Stella's Tarot, which I received yesterday in trade.

Justice.

She looks all charged up and ready to go. Sword in one hand, scale in the other, this lady is all business. I've just finished an art show cycle and need to regroup for the new year. This lady implies that I have all the right stuff to march forward into whatever 2011 will bring.

Death ill-dignified

I am resisting change and transformation. Feeling like I'm stuck in a place of stagnation. I need to allow the cycle move forward. Death allows rebirth and new beginnings. This card shows that I need to be able to allow myself to enter into this new phase of my life, because trying to hold on to an illusionary past is a death in and of itself... and definitely stagnation.

I should not rely on the senses. Look to the bright future and leave the past.
This card reminds me that the pictures I've been seeing of myself are from the past, before I lost 17 lbs and that I need to continue focusing on the health I'm obtaining through diet and exercise. I was letting myself feel down over the pictures I saw this week of my trip to Hawaii in August. I will stand in that same place next year and then the transformation will be known!

Gilded tarot, The Lovers

A card about perfect communications, finding what the soul requires. I quote:
"When this card appears, you are being told to trust you instincts, to choose this career, challenge, person or thing you're so strongly drawn to, no matter how scary, how difficult, irrational or troublesome - without it, you will never be wholly you. It's sudden and unexpected, and it means a complete change in plans; but this is LOVE. True love. Go for it! "

"without it, you will never be wholly you".....I need to find whats missing.

King Swords

A sharp intellect indicates to me that I have the knowledge to succeed in my weight loss. The King is unemotional. I do not have to like the process but I can know (that's key) that it is going to bring me success to follow this regiment. There are 3 trees blooming representing spring, fall, and summer. I believe I can succeed to my goal weight within three seasons. In my case they are winter spring summer.

Hi,

Animal Divine - 4 Swords (Hawk)

A hawk hovers over it's nest. 4 Swords are embedded within the sticks that make up the nest.

As regards diet and the healthy lifestyle - have certainly been out of the "nest" and hovering with the commitment to it. No weight put on though so I'm trying to look at the positive and at least i've maintained.

At work, there's certainly been tangles of communication and having recently taken on new role as manager, I'm not feeling settled in it as yet and it seems that all the problems from previous manager are coming home to roost now that i've started.

Hoping things improve soon.

Sharon

Gilded tarot, the Emperor

This is the "who's the boss" card. I guess that answers my question, "What do I have to do to continue loosing weight?". Answer, that depends on who's the boss, me, my emotions, effort, commitment. You can only have one ruler, the rest must serve as subjects to the crown.

Ask yourself if the last time you gave into the desire, if it satisfied the craving. I have found that if I ask myself this question the answer is usually an easy no. It just made me want more.

The Ferret Tarot (an absolutely charming artist-published deck with a sense of humor)

Justice.

This card shows a ferret with a blindfold. One side is raised so that she can peek out. She holds a sword in her right paw, and a scale in her left. A second ferret crawls in from the side of the card and lifts one side of the scale with his paw. He smiles ingratiatingly at Justice, whose face is still.

From this I gather that I'm tilting the scales in a way that is perhaps not quite kosher. I'm still trying to eat healthy, but have been cheating. Justice has caught me at it, and I hope to get back on track. I must stop making excuses and be accountable to my best self.

I LOVE this deck!!! :)

Hello ALL!!!!

Hope the Holiday weekend went well for all.

Gilded tarot, King of Swords

I asked what I have to do to get off the plateau I'm on (again). The King of swords dropped out while shuffling.

This King is ethical, just, honest, fights for a cause. Look's at a problem and find a better solution.

Thats what I need. I am adding more cardio, wearing neoprene pants to workout in, changing up my routine, adding more fruit and veggies. I'll keep tweaking things until I see those numbers budge!!

From my Paulina Tarot, I drew King of Wands.

A strange, androgenous looking king, he almost looks like he has jester makeup on. He looks comfortable, coy, waiting for something interesting to happen. I'm not sure how to interpret this today, but perhaps the creative wands indicate the artwork I did today. I started two new wallhangings. One is another greyhound, and the other is the first in a series of art quilts celebrating women.

I drew from my Voyager tonight.

Nine of Worlds, also called Harvest.

This is exactly how I feel right now. Autumn, harvesting the fruits of my recent labors. Seeing the crop of my artwork come to fruition. The baskets on the card imply to me a craft or art that's being put out in the world. Abundance, warmth, having enough to get me through.

Nice card! I haven't used my Voyager in years. :)

Maysha and Griffin, very insightful posts. Weight loss is so much more then dropping pounds, it becomes a journey of self discovery.

Gilded Tarot, The Sun

Things are falling into place. We'll see, tomorrow I get weighed and measured at the gym. So hopefully I'm making those adjustment stick.

I just received my new Paulina Tarot this morning in the mail. So I decided to do a "getting to know you" spread, which I sometimes do with a new deck.

1. Who are you? 8 of swords. This deck is fussy. Swords all wrapped in thorny rose vines, a lovely lady all decked out in finery, and bound by silken wraps. She's entangled, but only with frippery. The confusion around her can be cut through with a little clarity. The glow around her head tells me this deck is able to clarify and cut through that clutter. (either that or its going to clutter things up further!!!) LOL

2. Who am I? Wheel of Fortune. Round and round and round she goes. I cycle through things, including tarot decks. Lots of beings and plants below me, waiting to see where I'll land.

3. Who are we together? 2 of cups. A bizarre flower, containing opposites in harmony. We balance each other, and we will drink of the clarity that I need in order to live my best life. The pair on the card share goblets, are grounded by a huge flower, and have a cat and dog with them. Balance. Organizing the clutter of my mind's wheel into something cohesive and interesting.

The victory card. I hope it means I'm making the necessary adjustments to drop another pound by the end of the week.

From the Voyager Tarot:

Ace of Cups, Ecstasy

The card is about expressing emotions and renewal. I was attracted to the butterfly on the card, which is transformation. Today, I worked through the first lesson in A Course in Weight Loss by Marianne Williamson. I'll probably spend another day or two on that one. The lesson was about exploring the feelings that create the wall which is my excess fat. In some ways, it's like Overeaters Anonymous since one calls on God to help remove the bricks in the wall.

Touchstone Tarot.

What do I need to know about today?

Ten of Wands.

I've picked up a huge load of sticks, but carry them easily. My face and posture are calm and strong. I am confident in my ability to do what I need to do. I've regained the strength I lost over the last few years, fighting cancer and struggling to find a niche for my artwork. Today I am reaping the benefits of all that struggle. I'm dressed richly, and adorned with jewels. And my sticks are leafing out, fresh with new life, new growth, and new beginnings.

It is, and will be, a good day.

Welcome, Mindhorizon, and best of luck with your new diet!!!

I drew from my Touchstone Tarot, and I asked what I need to know for today.

Hermit.

My first thought was, yes, I need to hole up in my studio and get those commissions done!!!

My eyes are closed and I lean toward the animals who are my inspiration. A flame burns in my lantern, lighting the way to my future. I am making forward progress and must continue to look within for inspiration, while continuing to do the practical real-life work to bring those ideas to light.

It's about money and manifesting. I think manifesting is probably the better interpretation today. I'm starting up a diet today.

Gilded tarot, 10 of cups

A Happy scene of two women sitting in front of a cottage, laughing, talking with a cat playing at their feet, an arch of 10 cups and a rainbow are over the house. The card of joy, love, friendship, family.

I'm lucky to have a supportive family who encourages me (or pushes as the case may be, when I need it,lol) to do what I have to to meet my goals.

I chose from my Tarot of the Magical Forest, thinking about saturday.

Hierophant. This card has an adorable owl in a stone structure, and I immediately thought that I need structure for saturday's tasks. I have to finish two purses that were purchased at last weekend's show, and I'd like to ship them on monday. I'm easily distracted, so this little owl reminds me to stay on task. To organize myself so that I can complete them in a timely fashion. To continue organizing my studio so that all my creative tasks can proceed smoothly without getting bogged down in clutter. This little owl is wise in the ways of clarity. He knows how valuable the last two day's de-cluttering and studio organization is (and will be) for me to move forward. Some days I simply need some discipline, some structure, in order to be productive. And the more I can organize my materials, the easier it will be.

Gilded Tarot, Justice

My scale hasnt moved in weeks. Oh it'll move down one or up one but I seem to keep coming right back to the same number. So I asked what do I need to do to break the plateau.

I drew Justice.

"It is the card that advises cutting out waste and insists that the Querent make adjustments, do whatever is necessary to bring things back into balance: physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually. "

Talk about hitting the nail on the head. Ok Universe, I hear you and will make those adjustments.

w/love, Dawn

This morning I decided to draw from my Touchstone Tarot, which I haven't used in over a year.

Empress!!!

I am thoughtful and dreamy, the fruits of my labors surround me, as well as the sweet, prolific rabbit. My new life blossoms in my hands and on my crown. My eyes are closed, letting this all sink in. Pregnant with ideas, I take a moment to breath, knowing that the future is beginning to flow smoothly ahead of me. The gentle colors of autumn surround me. A time of thanksgiving for all that has been given me, and all that I've created. For years I've said "creating art, creating a new life" and now it is finally growing fruit.

Dawn, your card could be for me too! As I was nibbling on the M&Ms today I was talking with myself about turning this snacking rut around and holding my ground without losing (gaining weight) any more.

Sun and Moon.

I've got two cards. The first I drew in the wee hours of the morning while suffering from insomnia. I was thinking of my art career and drew the 3 of pents. A young man squats in front of a wall, painting beautiful patterns with spray paint. One person's graffiti is another's artistic expression. He has found his voice, as have I. And it is beautiful.

This morning's card is the 10 of wands. I've drawn her recently, so she is familiar. A beautiful african woman walks through the desert under a star-studded sky, carrying her load of wands. I still carry the burden of the last few years, and of all the crises I've survived. But I am strong and wisdom has blossomed out of the ashes of those crises. Some of this burden must be set aside if I'm to move faster. They weigh me down. There are things I need to let go of. Fear, anxiety, clutter, shoulds, excess weight.

And I am strong enough to do it.

Good Morning : )

Nine of Wands, Gilded Tarot

A soldier guards eight other wands while holding the ninth. He's weary, but still able to fight.

I need to hold my ground of what I have gained (or in this case, lost) and know there is reserve energy to continue this battle the bulge!

Sun and Moon tarot, Princess of Pentacles

I stand in a field on a windy day. Nine daisies float by me, and the wind whips through my hair. I carry a shield, but I hold it down by my side because today I do not need it. My belly is exposed, open to possibilities. My feelings are open to whatever is brewing in my creative core.

Hi everyone! I had another great show this weekend, and am walking on air that my artwork is getting such a positive reception.

I drew from my Sun and Moon deck, and got 4 of swords. In this particular deck the 4 of swords is rather lighthearted. Four swords are resting point-down in the grass, with soft clouds and a blue sky above. A young person is laying on the sword hilts, kneeds raised, looking up at the sky.

The keyword on the card is "truce."

I get a feeling of making peace with my worries and fears. That after two good shows I'm able to trust, to rest, to believe that my future is bright. That the sky is blue, the clouds are full of creative images, and that I'm resting on a solid foundation of work, time, reflection, learnings, and integration.

And now that I'm making peace with all that, its time to get back into my body and take better care of it.

Hugs to all!

I drew from Sun and Moon Tarot.

10 of wands.

This card has a keyword of "oppression" on it, but that's not what leaps out at me tonight.

I see a beautiful African woman walking across a desert. She leaves the oppressive, unfertile attmosphere behind her, carrying her ten staves of power on her head. I asked about this weekend's show (which I don't feel as ready for as I'd like) and I see her as telling me that I have enough on my head, enough new work, and enough history, that I will be ok. That I'm strong and can carry these wands forever. I feel strength from her. A light in the dark of the starry sky. The stars lead her to fullfillment and wholeness.

Dawn, I'm with you on the chocolate. I've been eating up the leftovers too.

And yes, I'd love it if more folks drew and discussed their cards and their lives. I love sharing our journeys. :)

Sorry I haven't been around much. Been dealing with "bad reception" in my ear (have that annoying crackling and pressure. Doc has me on antihistamines, so hopefully it helps)

Yesterday was a very stressful day. I botched the quilting on one of my wallhangings, my furnace broke, I found a tick embedded in my skin just under my mastectomy scar (first thought was cancer until I saw the little legs!), and my dog Luna's face swelled up. In the wee hours of the morning (2 or 3 am) I drew a card asking "What do I need to think about while I sleep?"

I used a non-tarot deck called "Creatrix, Anything is Possible."

I drew "Mother's Treasure" which has keywords "nurturing" and "shelter" on it. It's a soft watercolor image of a woman sitting under an old, curvy tree. The sun shines through its branches. She is looking down at an infant, cradled in her arms.

Relax and trust in Momís love. Trust my situation and nurture myself. Give myself a break in terms of guilt. No guilt. Donít ďshouldĒ on myself. Itís ok. Itís going to be ok. I will be fine. I will do fine. Let my inner animals, Mom, Mike, and anyone else who is able and wishes to, to help me. It is ok to still be struggling. It is ok to be where I am. I deserve to be whole.

The sun will come out tomorrow!!!
