Tarot is one of my favorite topics! I've been reading since my teens. I have 20+ decks, but Rider-Waite remains my favorite.

Yes! Thank you!

emoticon 7-9-18 Yesterday's performance was a fun, VERY hot 105, 17% humid emoticon , day of playing outside! 4 hours of non stop fabulousness! The children were darling. About 615 people came to the event. Today was resting except for 50 minutes of swimming; 2 loads of laundry; 24 minutes of Nichole's seated core video AND remembering time to read. I'm off to it! First time reading anything by Nora Roberts. Book 1 of The Guardians Trilogy, WOW can't seem to put it down.... I need to learn to read while working out, maybe at the gym I can try it!

I guess I am use to it. I do like it cool in the night time, about 60 & 75 highs. We are unseasonably hot!

4-25-18 Today is my 2231 day of sparking! I got a spin the wheel of 1,000 points! WooHoo!

SparklingMe176, I'm with MaryM63, I love the pictures. But I wouldn't love the heat! I don't like it in the Summer when it gets in the 90s --- to have the 90s in the Spring --- ARGH! I love sweater weather and the fresh breezes with a cool bite to it.

MaryM63 ~ They do bring smiles and joy when they are around. I only have one granddaughter and one great-granddaughter and they bring me such joy just knowing they are in the same world I'm in. Pride abounds with the blessings of the young!

Enjoy them thoroughly.

3-26-18 We have new neighbors, they left 3 dogs outside last night, barked ALL night. Then this morning, I peeked over the fence & 1 dog was tied up without water & in the sun 70 degrees today. Even though I am rather sleepy from not much sleep, I decided to talk to the owner of the house, not the renters. They immediately went & took care of the dogs, they live next door. I could have REALLY complained to the city, etc. But handling it this way was so much better. I have to live next door to them for as long as they are there. 5 kids, 3 dogs & a couple, yikes, it's a small house!

Anyway I am glad for the way I handled it. YEAH for me! emoticon

Happy you are feeling better MaryM63! Although I think getting up at 2:30 am is beyond the pale and trust you are able to function until bedtime! [grin] Do have one bit of wisdom from my gathered book of wisdom for myself. When you've been sick or otherwise non-productive, don't try to make up for it the first thing. When I do, I find myself back on my back for another bout of less than productive time.

Must have been a good night all around as I got the first good night's sleep in months last night!

Trust you stay healthy and active for a goodly amount of time! emoticon

Thank you Ceker9. I guess my body decided it had had enough rest. I was up at 2:30 this morning. I've gotten somethings done around the house. Made myself a to do list to work on. Hopefully I can get it finished before I crash and need a nap.

Hello, SparklingMe176 ~ I trust you are doing well and are not so very busy! Although you do such interesting things that it would be more apt to be energizing rather than depleting. Enjoy spring!

Yes! You are so right with that! Also, I'm finding that they change with time and study. I've got a few that I have realized that I don't quite understand anymore. I used to understand the 6s just fine, but lately, have struggled with them so need to do more research and adjust them to have more meaning for me.

Please share your research with us, not only for me and our lurkers but for yourself. I find if I have to put down what I'm learning so that someone else can understand it, it clarifies it even more for me.

Blessings,

I've been reading some of the post in the group this morning. I found the one where you make a chart and write down keywords. After reading through that topic I have realized that the Tarot does not speak to everyone the same way. So I'm off to do some studying and find my keywords that resonate with me.

Thank you for all the support.

I'm still working on trying to get it to be a habit. I get frustrated when I can't connect with a meaning in my cards. I know I just need to study more.

Now that's it's been a few days since you did your clearing, how's your new ritual doing. I'm eager to find how you are doing! It's so exciting!

My area is ready. I'm looking forward to getting started tomorrow.
The room isn't perfect but it will work. I actually got more done in there than I thought I would.

What a lovely name for a room --- the sunroom! That will bring lots of "light" into your meditations.

Have a great day of cleaning!

I do understand about not cutting things out completely. Just need to cut back on somethings that I spend to much time on.

Today feels like a good cleaning day. We have snow. Just makes me feel like accomplishing something inside. I should be able to get my bench cleared. That is where I would like to sit to do my meditation and card draw. I just like the feel of that area in the sunroom.

MaryM63 ~ Just a hint, don't try to cut anything out completely, whittle it down as you are adding the MINUTES to something you want to do. I also do too much Facebook, but find if I cut it out completely, I miss talking to my friends, some Facebook only friends, and other important classes or meetings that I don't want to miss.

I'm having to do it in little bits at a time --- which isn't easy for a *big bite* person I have always been. I'm the person who loves to do the spring cleaning and not touch my house for another 6 months --- I clean it, didn't I? shouldn't it stay clean? Then I got sick with a chronic illness (as well as age) and I don't have the energy to do things for long periods of time without ending up in major pain so I can't do anything at all. I'm here to say that we can learn --- if we are patient and forgiving with ourselves. It just has to be done in little bits (shudder) and lots of compassion and caring... not an easy task when I've always done so much!

Also, don't wait until your space is all uncluttered, fixed-up, and perfect as it will never happen. Move the stuff to another desk/dresser top and light a candle and go for it!

Good Luck! emoticon emoticon

Ceker9, That did make sense. Thank you for sharing. I know sometimes I do try to add or change to much at once. I also have a pill I take in the morning and then have to wait an hour before having anything else. Though I do take it as soon as I get up and then get hubby ready for work. I still have time after he leaves to do a meditation and then a card draw. That would be good. I will work tomorrow on setting up a place to do that. I've let my special place get cluttered.

I have a friend that says her family is busier now since her hubby retired than they were when he was working. I know that I'm always finding things I want to do that aren't a regular part of my day, reading, crafting, wondering outside and of course my addiction to the internet is bad. That needs to be cut back on.

Have a good night. And thanks again for the info.

Mary, Indiana, eastern time

MARYM63 ~ Actually, I do have some tips I can share. I have been struggling with disorganization most of my life and have found in the last few years through a couple of classes that I've taken, that I need to ritualize what I want to do and link it to a ritual already in place.

I know that sounds pretty weird, but it works really well. We have rituals we do every day... like brush our teeth that is linked to a larger set of rituals around getting up or going to bed. I figured out what my rituals were and then I linked the new habit (ritual) to one of the ones I already had going.

My recent example was I wanted to journal on a regular basis and draw a tarot card every day. So, I figured out that I have a ritual of taking a pill at 10 am every morning that has to be taken on an empty stomach and then 1/2 hour later I need to take the rest of my vitamin pills. I have set an alarm to make sure I remember to take the pill at 10 am. Then I had that 1/2 hour that I was scrolling through Facebook waiting for the time to pass until the next pills. I decided to use that as the time I journal and draw my tarot cards. I turned it into an actual ritual where I light the candles on my altar, burn incense, journal for 10 - 15 minutes, then I will draw my tarot cards, extinguish the candles, and bring the ritual time to a close. After taking my second set of pills, I document my tarot cards and go on with my day.

This has worked well for me. It has been a continuing thing for nearly a year. I've tweaked it along the way so it works better and better for me. While I was working on it. I made a commitment to myself that I would do it. There have been days here and there where it wasn't possible for me to do my ritual and I did one of two things, I either did it later in the day or I skipped it while giving myself a break and forgiving myself for the skip.

SUGGESTION: Don't try to add too much for too long a time! Take it slow and easy add a bit and get comfortable with that, then add another bit and get comfortable with that. I've found if I add too much or it takes too much time, that I won't do it. At first, I figured if I didn't to it all, I was a failure, but I have found if I take one small thing and actually integrate it into my life, then another, and another, that I actually have made more progress than if I do it all and get overwhelmed and quit. Just remember that what works for me won't necessarily work for you as you have different rituals. Plus, I'm a senior and am retired and although that sounds like I have all the time in the world, I have a different set of challenges. I have to figure out how to deal with 24/7 hours in a day without the framework of a job. Sounds wonderful, but it is less easy than you think.

I would be happy to be your cheerleader on your path to form life-affirming rituals.

Blessings,
Collien~~~

I would really like to get more serious with my studies of the Tarot. It seems I can never organize my days it seems. I need to be more disciplined in making the most of my time. Any time management tips you can share?

I've really missed this Forum and will continue with it for a while longer --- at least. I draw a card every day and post it in a tarot journal I keep on my personal journey. One thing that I have noticed since I stopped posting in this Forum is that I have had a much more difficult time being objective when I am writing up my daily draws. When I was writing them for public consumption, I actually thought more deeply and critically and honestly about the cards that I had drawn and how they actually will affect my day.

I will be using this Forum to increase my knowledge of the cards and keep myself honest in my readings for myself.

I would be honored if you would join me on my journey to lose weight and get to know tarot better.

Blessings,
Collien~~~
