Archive for March, 2014
Although Spring includes most of June, June feels to be another story, so these messages are just for April and May.
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius: Fire signs: First of all you want to change things around so it’s not, “What does my audience want from me?” but, “What is it that I want to give people?” You can make dreams come true; your power is at its peak in some important cycle. It’s time to act and claim authority and have confidence in something you’ve been working on for a long time. Follow the signs if they tell you to present whatever you’ve got to give.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: The April-May message is very similar to the March message. There are excellent signs for getting in where you want to get in, getting to do what you find fulfilling, exciting, and fun…make sure you’re scheduling things that COULD be fun. Do not choose what might produce drudgery, there are other choices this Spring! But also, you might find that you have to give up something you love, or live with a loss in pleasure. But in the end you find a way around it, become stronger, and have new frontiers and vistas to contemplate.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: Each individual air sign had a different messages this April-May. (Aquarians were wondering what they were going to dedicate themselves to–what were they going to do, Gemini was exulting in some win, and Libras could be torn about what direction to follow. ) But the common experience is that the world is offering them a chance to be successful now, and projects begun now and events planned can give you a strong sense of accomplishment. Believe in what motivates you! Be bold!
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth signs: Are you sure you’re doing what you want? Make sure you’re doing what you want…things are likely to take off, whatever you choose, so make it to your liking. Are you alone? You don’t have to be…this is probably the very best time to connect with another person and enjoy your relationships. Whether you find a business partner, a romantic partner, or a group to hang out with, there are benefits to stepping out this Spring.

I take part in tarot-related forums on the web, and one site I ran into that mentions “scary” tarot cards inspired me to comment on the cards people find scary or difficult. Although the tarot can deliver sobering messages and warnings, there are no cards that are inherently “bad” to get. The pictures on some of them frighten people when they show up in their reading, however.
Here are two minor arcana cards, which on the Waite deck, have unsettling pictures. The Three of Swords features a big red heart in the sky, with three daggers piercing it. The Ten of Swords is a man lying face down on the ground, with ten swords sticking out of his back.
The Three of Swords: Swords are associated with the element of air, the mental plane, and one’s thoughts, beliefs, ideas and perceptions. (Air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.) To get the meaning, you combine it with the meaning of the number 3 The number 3 is ruled by Saturn, and represents structure, rules, stability, and restrictions. It can also mean “no”.
The Three of Swords has interesting disparate readings as it appears in an answer to a question. One reading is that it means something doesn’t happen that is expected. If someone asks, “how’s that lawsuit against me going to go?” –let’s say the Jusitice card is in the water position in the layout(indicating a legal matter) and the Three of Swords is in the earth position, then it’s saying the lawsuit will never come to trial. Falling in the earth position, it suggests that it only exists in the air realm, or in one’s head. For some reason, this lawsuit is a non-event in the life of the questioner.
Ten of Swords: One important meaning of the 10 of swords is that it points out a change in identity. The person no longer has the same perspective on themselves and life—the old version of the ego-identity has gone as far as it can go (10 is the highest number in the minor arcana.) The person dies to their old identity to be born again. The next cards can describe what follows, what rises from the ashes of all the experiences and beliefs one had as the old identity. Another reading of it which may be unique to me, is when the 10 of swords is the last card: it can mean: “the end of a the matter”.Whatever the previous cards say, all the necessary meaning will be found in them and there’s nothing more to say.
After getting the distinct message it was time to turn off the news and stop keeping myself so well-apprised of all the horrors unfolding, I wondered whether my own newsletters hinted at how the story ended, so I could turn off the news with some closure. I just read December’s and the two Januarys, which all have 2014 messages, and although they mention “fierce uprisings, “unexpected events that have a big impact”, continued abuse of Mother Nature, crazy weather…”), there’s the sense our world continues. With so many crazy things pending in the world as of March 16th on a full moon, I began to wonder if any of my messages alluded to World War 3.
The only unsettling message I remember not being able to see “where” or get much of a context, may be bouncing off the tremendous increase in refugees, in for instance, Syria, the Middle East, Africa. I noticed that the message is in some copies online , but not others, although it’s in the client-version newsletter I send out. Here it is again from the January 2014 newsletter:
2014: “Reasons to be bummed out is if there’s anything to this impression: I don’t know what part of the world generated this image–it was for the year, so maybe many people feel more on their own than usual, having to make their own way, like an iceberg afloat in the silent sea because connections no longer hold and outdated systems no longer support. “
It’s about for some reason, lots of people feeling very abandoned, nobody caring, it is as if they are set adrift, off by themselves in a silence , because they are no longer connected and supported by their past.
Photos of refugees in the New York Times burn into us, showing so many sick , abused and hungry people no one wants to feed, without a country. The only good that can come of this for those of us who watch at a distance, is that it opens our hearts and makes us want to reach out and do something to make it better, where and how we can. We are in the throes of a battle that roughly breaks down into outbursts of darkness and breakthroughs of lightness; it doesn’t always look like it, but the planets tell that it is the dramatic breakdown of the old order. May we all be moved to be a light in the darkness.

So a few people can profit, this beautiful historic and cultural treasure of a mesa will be leveled by a strip mining operation and turned into a gravel pit, and forever more, the bright lights, trucks, dust, and ugliness of a pit mine will be what greets people at the entrance to Santa Fe. The water it takes to operate the mine and keep the dust contained could mean that there isn’t enough water for Santa Fe county residents in the future. This historic landscape, integral to Santa Fe’s image, and the kind of view that visitors are coming here for, will be permanently destroyed by this shortsighted greed-fueled plan to level La Bajada mesa. It’s not too late to save it, but time is of the essence! Now it’s crucial that people sign the petition and email the group making this decision, and all the information to make your voice heard by the right people is at http.www.savelabajada.org The public meeting has been postponed to March 20th; it makes a big difference to the outcome when people show up in person to protest, details at www.savelabajada.org.
I’m reliving my past tonight, watching a PBS broadcast of great rhythm and blues performers at a 1989 White House Bush inaugural concert that’s just been released. So far, The Master of Them All is Bo Diddley, a true original whom I was lucky enough to hear live. The most fun I ever had dancing was to Bo Diddley, although I remember thinking I would have a heart attack. In person his beats made you crazy, they were so infectious, so funky. On stage at the White House in that formal setting, he was so totally himself and in charge, and full of musical surprises.
Speaking of surprises, March started this morning with a bang, or rather, Russia invading the Ukraine. I’m not sure where the channeled info below came from that identifies March as a month of solutions, but I sure hope that includes things working out for the Ukranians. A few years ago I got quite alarmed about Putin and his scary rise to power after meeting a French metaphysician who studied Nostradamus. (August 2011 article here.)
May inner and outer peace prevail!
I hope you all have a great month,
Keep in touch and come to beautiful Santa Fe!
Psychic Insights for March 2014
The pictograph talks about the force within us being strong and enduring now, causing a thrust forward of our energy towards our goals, through uncertain territory and opposing structures. The spirits say surrender wholly to fresh desire that comes in March, making you want to bring new brightness and opportunity into your life. Affirm yourself like never before–know yourself to be The Little Engine That Could.
March 2014 is a month of finding solutions. Peoples’ eyes open wide to new insights and understandings that help them solve problems. They have an impulse towards peace; they want to lay down their arms, literally and figuratively. Personal defense systems become easier to dissolve and apparent truths easier to accept.
There’s lots of planetary activity in March, and the net effect is to make this a time people are willing to tackle reforms in big and little matters. The overall goal is to re-write the script and come up with a better life drama to star in.
Personal and Professional Success: The many planets in retrograde slows down the progression of projects, but it also gives people a chance to shape up the material and means to take them to the next step. The way you present your unique material requires special care; take your time and make it right. Be prepared to apply yourself as the month’s goals generate a lot of work . It’s also a good time to collaborate and find support—go all in trying to gain followers, and be available to help others.
Personal Guidance: Bite the bullet now! If you need to end a relationship, stop a really bad habit, get out of anything toxic, it’s easier to do that now in collaborative, solution-oriented March . Later in the Spring the planets warn that situations get more complicated and solutions more extreme (The Grand Cross). Whatever it is that you know has gotta be done, don’t avoid it, Do It Now.

March 2014 Personal Guidance for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius; Fire signs: Fire signs can go as far as to change the direction of their life, making new plans for the future and considering new possibilities in what they do and how they operate. It’s hard to stay organized because there’s so much you want to do, even if it’s only as far-reaching as re-organizing your closets. Take it easy! Take your time! It’s not really clear yet, but outer life begins to respond to inner change.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces; Water signs: Very good news about money, trips, and anything where you’ve been waiting for a go-ahead, a yes or no—what happens this month makes you happy. There’s also challenging news: a project or relationship have unexpected difficulty, likely causing a change in plans.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius; Air signs: March is a big month for gaining valuable insight for people in general, but especially the air signs. They are feeling much better about their direction in life because what’s true for them is apparent, and they see how they can expand their life the way they want to. Air signs are considering money making plans and partnerships, and better able to hone in on the ones that yield. Whomever you deal with, the sign of something good is the solid person involved in it.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn; Earth signs: Career matters are looking up, you’re able to expand your business and go in new directions. Earth signs are working on new territory to conquer…where they might fit and what they might fit into. You’re following up on doing what you want and making it happen.
