The week ahead – get on the horse!

photo (31)

Usually when I do the week ahead reading I make a big thing out of getting in the zone and pulling a card for us all yada yada yada… Today I was playing around with a new spread which is from the Dusty White book I’m always going on about – The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot Ever. It’s called the Roundabout spread and the reading I gave myself was ultra amazing! I usually suck at giving myself readings, you know how you always see what you want to see, or try to make the cards relate to a specific outcome you want, but this one was so bang on and so hard hitting that I knew it was totally what I needed to hear right now, even though some of it was a kick up in the pants!

I’ll spare you the gory details of my entire reading, but one card in particular didn’t just speak to me, it screamed in my face, and I thought it was worth sharing this week for the week ahead!

The Seven of Wands; it’s not really that much of an exciting card really. Usually when I see this card I relate better to the people walking than the guy on the horse. I always perceive the guy on the horse as a ‘boss’ type, you know, that guy who gets all the glory when really, it was the people on the ground who did all the work. I’ve always seen him as kind of a boastful jerk and definitely not a character I relate to at all.

As part incarnated angel I don’t think I’ve ever really been on the horse. I follow behind, working quietly in the wings, not talking about my grand plans or ambitions. That’s not to say I don’t have them, I just don’t dance around telling everyone who’ll listen. I stay relatively humble and just get on with things while my superiors constantly reap the rewards and I go home and drink half a bottle of wine while I watch True Blood and whinge about it.

Well guys, that’s all about to change! I pulled this card reversed in the ‘what I need to address’ position and I wrote in my journal in caps – GET ON THE F***ING HORSE FOR ONCE!

This message was so intense I felt like it was for all of us. Let yourself get on the horse for once. Stop being a follower and start putting yourself out there!

Oh and PS – don’t forget to check out my free readings page!

Love light and horse riding lessons,

Matthew McConaughey – Page of Swords

phonto (5)

I can’t be the only person to ever have been taken aback by the striking resemblance between the Page of Swords and Matthew McConaughey, can I? It’s insanely obvious, and if you didn’t think it was insanely obviously, after reading this post you just may never be able to look at the Page of Swords the same way again!

I was working through The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot with my brand new Rider Waite/Pamela Coleman Smith deck when I had the epiphany. The first exercise in the book goes along the lines of looking at the cards and imagining you are like, inside the card. It’s an awesome way to spend an afternoon, but when I got to the Page of Swords all I could see was Matthew McConaughey. My intuition had clearly gone for a coffee, because seriously, WTF does Matthew McConaughey have to do with anything?!! And every time I see this card all I see is still Matthew McConaughey!

11495-23772

Eventually instead of trying to convince my brain that this card has nothing to do with Matthew McConaughey I wondered if maybe I should try to work out what Matthew McConaughey does have to do with this card.

So I sat down and watched my all time favourite Matthew McConaughey movie; Contact. Released in 1997, written by Carl Sagan who wrote the book, directed by Robert Zemeckis and Jodie Foster wearing Mom jeans, there’s seriously nothing it doesn’t have going for it. I’m probably starting to sound like some kind of member of the Matthew McConaughey fandom – I’m really not, but I am a HUGE fan of the movie Contact. If you haven’t seen it and you are into stuff about the universe, outer space and are basically human you will probably love it. The premise is that Jodie Foster is a scientist and she’s searching for messages from aliens basically, and along comes MM playing some kind of priest with a thousand theology degrees who constantly plays devil’s advocate with Jodie Foster in this movie…

Oh wait a second… devil’s advocate? A guy who always takes the higher ground, he’s written a best seller and can totally hold his own in a conversation about God and the universe so he must be intelligent, he’s a student of theology, and he’s super fit and active – hello traditional meanings! MM spends the whole movie trying to convince Jodie Foster there is a God, he’s always arguing his point, talking to her like she’s his congregation and taking off his shirt. There’s even a couple of scenes in the movie where he’s bringing her some important news too!

(OK, so I’m not really talking about Matthew McConaughey. I’m talking about the character in this movie – Joss Palmer. But if I had named this post – Joss Palmer – Page of Swords it wouldn’t have quite had the same ring to it.)

This guy sounds kind of annoying, but he’s not a bad guy, he’s super charismatic, he just has opinions about stuff and thinks his opinions are right. Well, don’t we all think our opinions are right? He doesn’t sugar coat or mince words, he just tells it like it is. He’s so Swords right now!

Seriously, just go watch the movie. Even if you think what I’m talking about here is nuts, it’s a great movie anyway!

And stay tuned for more court cards coming to life through pop culture!

Love, light and Matthew McConaughey tarot look-a-likes,

#Caturday cat cards – Three of Cups

photo (20)

The Three of Cups is a super fun Saturday Caturday card! Three lady cats are having the best time ever drinking and dancing; you don’t need to have read all the books on Tarot (although you should read Dusty White’s The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot Ever if I may recommend!) to work out what this card is saying to us today.

Good company, fun times. And if you don’t have any money you can drink plain old water with your friends. And if you don’t have any friends you can have a glass of your drink of choice on your own and maybe find some fun people online to connect with. I always respond to comments too! 🙂

Love, light and Saturday fun!

#Caturday cat cards – Knight of Pentacles reversed

#Caturday cat cards - Knight of Pentacles reversed

This is a cat who, when upright is pretty confident, expects everything and everyone to come to him (probably because they usually do!) and has the potential to be kind of a smug jerk. Ouch! But reversed he’s falling off his horse and kind of dropping the ball!

A reminder today – stand up for yourself and don’t drop the ball!

Love, light and confident cats,
