The Daily Draw: The Hanged Man

The Daily Draw: The Hanged Man

My three year old daughter sings a song that goes something like “We’re so busy buzzing bees”. I have this stuck in my head to the tune of the Sex Pistols “Pretty Vacant” (We’re so busy/Oh so busy/Busy buzzing bee-ees). If I sing it that way, it’s pointed out “that’s not right”. But to me … Continue reading

The Daily Draw: Ace of Pentacles

The Daily Draw: Ace of Pentacles

When I see this card come up it’s very tempting to think, “Money! Money! Money!”, especially in these economic times. And the Ace of Pentacles can certainly be an indicator of prosperity, a successful phase in a new or current business venture, for example. But to focus solely on that aspect of this energy is … Continue reading

The Daily Draw: Ten of Wands

The Daily Draw: Ten of Wands

Much of the writing I’ve seen about this card focuses on the negative, but to me this is kind of a good news, bad news card. The good news is you’re being effective, you’re able to carry your own weight (and then some), you’re making progress, you’re somehow managing with everything you take on. The … Continue reading

The Daily Draw: King of Swords

I‘ve drawn this card from time since I started my most recent technical documentation position nearly three years ago, and each time it signalled the start of a period where I was able to make great progress. My day job involves writing customer documentation about in-development products that are either designed to perform a new … Continue reading

The Daily Draw: Nine of Swords, Reversed

The Daily Draw: Nine of Swords, Reversed

I could start off with an examination of what we mean by “positive” and “negative” emotions and whether emotions deserve such labels, but I’m going to skip that abstract PC conversation and cut straight to the chase. I’m pretty sure that if I say “negative emotions”, most people are going to be in the ballpark … Continue reading

The Daily Draw: The Lovers

The Daily Draw: The Lovers

Well, this looks a lot more promising for lovers than yesterday’s draw (Two of Cups, reversed). In fact, could we get more literal? Where the Two of Cups represents a mutual attraction and connection, The Lovers speaks of a relationship where there is a deep, spiritual connection. We’re talking the full chakric scale here. With … Continue reading

The Daily draw: Two of Cups, Reversed

The Daily draw: Two of Cups, Reversed

My first reaction: Now here’s something you don’t want to see in a reading three days before Valentine’s Day. The Two of Cups often represents a strong emotional connection between two people. Reversed, it suggests there are issues with that connection, such as miscommunication for example. It might even represent complete disconnection on the part … Continue reading

Mercury is coming to the end of another retrograde phase, turning direct tomorrow. Mercury rules my sun sign (Virgo) and the left side of my brain has found it a challenge to find a clear way forward on a particular project I’m working on or, more accurately, two complimentary and potentially conflicting projects. I won’t … Continue reading
