TAROTSCOPES | JULY 15 - JULY 21
0 THE FOOL
The answer is in you. In the cycle. In the hole in your heart that is full of possibility. Your thoughts are not an undistorted reflection of one version of reality. The structure of the world, even within patriarchy, even with white supremacy, is not fixed. So much of your universe is anchored in what you make of it. You have a small part but a part nonetheless, in amending and shaping the future. You are in a constant state of beginning to shift. So, what thought do you need to invite into your circle?
Privilege helps but it is not a prerequisite to potential. There are many ways we are equal in capacity. We all start out capable of kindness. Able to love. Eager to exercise our lifeforce. Gifted with the divine power of hope. This week, The Fool is a reminder that even under an eclipse, you are able to look. That looking might lead to seeing. That seeing and leaping can, in some cases, be the same thing. When we take the leap of consciousness, the World spins in ways we never imagined and certainly couldn’t expect. Believe you have the skill to witness without having something pointed out for you. Draw your own conclusions without anyone handing you a pen.
In the spirit of The Fool, below are a few lessons I am forever foolishly at the precipice of learning. I hope they will inspire you to inquire about your own lessons and to observe your immeasurable possibilities.
Fire/passion, needs air to breathe/space to start. Fire gives visibility to air.
Earth needs water to make anything grow. Water needs earth to hold it.
If I tend to only one aspect of self, I will fall out of balance.
I cannot tend every part of me all at the same time.
Tending is a practice of pacing, not racing.
I can put first things first and still come full circle.
Pausing is part of timing.
Finishing isn’t always fun.
The best views are usually unexpected.
Expectations are the most confining kind of limit.
Potential has no limit.
Hope is an infinite resource.
The differencs between hope and expectation is admission of potential.
When I admit potential, I surrender the outcome.
My work isn’t fruitful if it doesn’t also work on me. In other words, if I’m not learning anything, why am I doing it?
Definitions of success can always be redefined.
My worth is not inextricably linked to my accomplishments.
My identity is never fixed.
I can change anything by changing my mind.
Thought leads to action leads to thought leads to action and so on until forever.
Life is play, practice and performance. I am, by default, my most loyal audience.
I can introduce who I am to who I’d like to be.
WHAT EVEN IS A TAROTSCOPE? We often think of horoscopes as predictions that are specific to each astrological sign. In Ancient Greek, the term horoscope simply means "I watch the hour." To astrologers today, a horoscope is a chart that maps the planetary bodies in the sky. From this chart, we derive meaning that can influence how we work with energy. Regardless of our unique individual charts, we are ALL working with the same energy from above. Each week, I examine this energy, pull a tarot card and write a guided meditation with the collective in mind. My tarotscopes are meant to be read as inspiration. Please note that because we are all operating with our individual energy, some elements will resonate more than others. Take what you like and leave the rest. Tarotscopes are offered freely in an effort to cultivate collective healing. I am always grateful for your support in sharing this work with anyone you think it might help. If you are inspired or find support here, please consider making a donation to help sustain these weekly offerings.
