Affirmative mini-read

"What day is it?" asked Pooh.

It's today," squeaked Piglet.

"My favorite day," said Pooh.

- A.A. Milne


We get so worried that we get anxiety. And when the tides pass, we remember that it didn't help at all to feed the fear. Today's read is a dedication to relaxation. The quantum tarot is not predictive, but an affirmation to life. Just be here.


Here we go with the 4-card Herbcrafter's spread with 2-flanking White Sage Tarot clarifiers. The timing is set for this week 10.26.2020 though elections 11.3.2020.



Madre of Earth, 6 of Cups, and 4 of Swords

We are feeling grounded at this time with Madre of Earth (queen of pentacles) giving us abundance and empowerment. We are in sync with nature and feeling safe and secure. Our work with Gaia is blossoming in waves and we are able to feed ourselves and others. There is a sense of returning to hope and mutuality (6 of Cups) and getting a bit of R&R while we dream and receive inspiration about what's next (4 of Swords). As we head into Halloween, a period of harvest and remembrance, it's a sweet time to embrace loved ones in person and in memory.


Temperance, Ace of Cups, and 2 of Swords

Stillness and presence brings the middle way for Temperance. There is magic in the mundane, in that when we are at one with whatever we are doing right now, an infinite flow of energy is able to come through and guide us towards a path of fulfillment and renewal (Ace of Cups). The 2 of Swords is a reminder of the mind-heart integration that happens not on the outside, but within the depths of our being. Turn inwards and peace is right there.


Curandera of Air, Death, Page of Pentacles

As we continue to shed and trim away what is no longer needed, we are also beginning to see new possibilities for a new structure, a new foundation in our lives. We are making decisions with swiftness and clarity (King of Air), and allowing the past to fade (Death) so the next step can come into focus (Page of Pentacles). In experiencing loss that appears abrupt and harsh, self-compassion is needed. It doesn't always come automatic, so some initial intention may be helpful to relax the nervous system and the body. Massage, a bath, yoga, or dance, are all good ways to invite the attention back to the body.


Six of Fire, 7 of Wands, 9 of Pentacles

Celebrations are in full-swing after a good fight with the Six of Fire clarified by 7 of Wands. This theme has come up over and over again in either personal or collective reads. Victory or not, we must apply lovingkindness, compassion, love, and equanimity towards oneself as we would our dear ones. This is perfect timing to learn that we are whole and capable of a loving and purposeful life - either our external circumstances turn out a certain way or not. 9 of Pentacles gives us the encouragement to be kind and graceful towards ourselves and be uplifted by a sense of internal abundance. We live in such an amazing time, and we get to pat our backs and say "good job, you're an amazing, grade triple-A ______! (human being, woman, author, designer, friend, family and community member, etc.)" If we need support and reminders, Six of Fire also reminds us that we are not in lack of cheerleaders all around us, just ask and let them in. And may it be just so. Namaste.
