Everyday Tarot, 07/30/11: Through Rocky Waters


Non-refundable ticket.

Chaos: we’ve got it! Disruption, confusion, and upheaval, complicated by the responsibility of keeping it all in check (because it impacts more than just the individual), not to mention aiming to function throughout. There’s no doubt something useful or important can be salvaged from this mess before it’s all over, but it’s damn hard to feel the lighter side right now. Sorry!

We’ve got the Two of Pentacles, The Tower and the Chariot on the left—it’s been a strain, trying to hold it all together, you know? The realization that a completely intact building doesn’t collapse is of little solace when you’ve been living in that building and didn’t want to move! Forces are pulling in opposing directions, amplifying the amount of control required to divide energy.


The Lovers teams with the Six of Swords on the right. The Six of Swords is a card of insight, but it’s not a “High Priestess” flavor of deep, intuitive knowing. The Six of Swords perspective is hard-won, every shred of understanding well earned and paid for in full. The Lovers clue us in that this journey isn’t in search of balance between opposing forces, but to the space where you give what you can marry all the energy into a more unified whole, better reflecting your strength, values and intention. We’re traveling through the rocky waters in a boat full of sharp swords in search of harmony…

It’s no longer about who wins and who loses, fairness over who carries whom. It’s about finding that sweet spot, accepting weakness without judgment, but simultaneously building on and acting in concert with strengths. Lack of rancor does not equal stagnation. To get there, you must be willing to redefine the landscape. Travel plans have to remain flexible to incorporate changes of itinerary as you integrate and process the experience.

It’s not exactly a cushy ride. But it is a necessary and important trip. So make the best of it, okay?

  1. Yes, but at this point, I have a cushy boat. Clonopin.
    Not happy about it, but it’s the only way I can stay upright.
    Can’t get beat up by the rocks anymore.

      1. Thanks, Dixie – I was just drowning. And never knew when it was going to hit, but when it did, I knew I wasn’t safe. So that’s the thought – ease it up for a bit, and let my body REST. If I can get enough sleep, I’ll be good – it’s the one thing I can’t function well without.
        All I need is an emoticon that looks sleepy. lol!

        1. (((kim)))
          Sometimes we just have to swim with the current until we can find that spot in which it is safe to swim to shore.

          1. Thanks, Moozie – I appreciate it! It’s funny – I’m taking a quarter of what the doc told me to, and I’m doing just fine. So I’m hoping it was just enough to get me over the hump.
