Tarot Reading for Spring 2020

I collect Tarot cards and I also play around with the Divination side of them. It has reached the point in February that makes me more than ready for the snow to be gone. To cheer myself up I decided to do a reading to see what the Spring will bring.

For March I got the Chariot this is a good news, bad news kind of thing.

The prime meaning is movement & listening. That makes sense in a physical as well as metaphysical way. Physically the world or at least our part of the world is waking up. Metaphysically our minds and bodies are filled with the anticipation of the return of the sun and many of us get antsy at this time of year.

The other thing is that this card indicates that something is hidden from sight and that we will be required during March to understand whatever is hidden, by listening and moving through the month.

For April I got the Two of Swords

This card is strongly indicative that our intuition will be important this month but that we will find our answers through meditation, not direct action

Everything in this card suggests quiet contemplation and inner calm, yes even the swords because the way they are held means they are not for combat but concentration

So looks like April is going to be a month where we will be able to relax and recentre ourselves

For May I got The Moon

Combined with the two of swords this indicates deception and lying to oneself. I am not sure what this means in the wider scale but as self-perception is indicated it may be that what we see as progress in the previous two months wasn't really true

With that said I realized I asked what the next three months held for me not just what they held in general. I should go back and change the pronoun to me instead of we but as this is already late I think I will pass on that.

In any case the next three months are shaping up to be a bit of a roller coaster in the mental arena. It also indicates that I need to take a close look at my thought processes because they will be leading me astray this spring.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.
