7 of Cups | Strength |The Wheel of Fortune

Find a quiet place in your home and look for a comfortable place to sit. You can choose a chair or the floor but firmly plant you sit-bone down. Sit up straight, but root yourself.  Close your eyes and take a deep breath in through your nose and hold it for 5 seconds and release your breath through your mouth. Repeat this a couple of times. Calm down. Now ask yourself: What is the source of my anger, frustration or unhappiness? Why do I avoid finding healthy or constructive solutions to my problems? Where in my life do I give my power away? Where are the energy leaks? What recreational activities deplete me?

Sometimes anger or frustration needs to be expressed, but compulsive or explosive anger is something that needs to be soothed. You might have a very good reason to feel the rage you do, but the only way you will improve your situation is by being accountable for your own actions. Rage typically doesn’t improve ones relationships and compulsive or escapist behavior such as excessive eating, drinking, drug use or late-night escapades can deplete you mentally, physically, emotionally and energetically. Look for ways to strike a balance between control and compulsion. If there is someone in your life who makes you see red, take some time off from this person and concentrate on yourself. You are not fated to a life of imbalance or addiction. Don’t let impulsive or compulsive behavior ruin your health.

Pay attention to your heart. How are you over indulging? Where can you trim the fat? For a period of time reduce your alcohol and caffeine consumption. Cut down on fatty meats and processed foods and eat and drink more living foods. If you reach for something to drink let it be water with lemon or herbal tea. Eat a balanced diet with lots of green heart-healthy vegetables, fruit and whole grains. It might even be appropriate for you to lean towards a semi-vegetarian diet for a period of time until you become better balanced. As far as movement, look for exercise that soothes you. Yoga, casual biking, walking – gentle movements that exercise your heart without ‘revving you up”. Socially, you should spend time with friends you get along with who make you feel calm. Last but not least, look for healthy ways to express your emotion. The emotion I believe you are avoiding feeling is sadness. Watch some sad movies and cry it out. Crying is cathartic. Release the grief. If you do this, I believe you will see a change for the better. You have the power to change your life. Take control.



Weekend Tarot Forecast: 1/18-1/20

7 of Cups | 3 of Cups | 9 of Coins

The 7 of Cups tells me I am dealing with someone who is very creative. The message I hear is: “I could do this, or I could do that. Round and round they go! There is no shortage of material to work from. Don’t feel frustrated by all of your choices.”

How amazing is it for you that you have this many options? Your work is to organize and bring shape to your creative thoughts. Take one of your ideas and ground it in reality. Otherwise, it will stay in the world of dreams. Dreams are wonderful, valuable and inspiring, but if you want to make your creativity a part of your everyday reality, you will need to pluck one of those ideas from the sky, mold it, shape it, and make it of this earth. If you add some structure to your ideas, you will have something to show for it in time.

This weekend, make it a priority to sit down at a desk and generate a list of 7 meaningful ideas. Organize your thoughts and begin to think about how you can tackle these projects. Maybe you will organize your list from easiest to most difficult or most expensive to least expensive, or think about short-term projects vs. long-term project…you get the idea. Some choices will be stronger than others. Don’t be scared to get a second opinion.

The 3 of Cups welcomes information from the group. Ask your friends or colleagues to give you some feedback, even if it’s just for them to tell you what they perceive as your true strengths. Take three of your ideas and pitch them to a trusted group of friends. Don’t be scared to ask them to reflect back the “real you”. Ask for constructive feedback not criticism. My sense is they will talk about how strong, independent and vibrant you are.

The 9 of Coins screams independent contractor. Your work is valuable. Do you want to work for yourself? Start with what flows easily. Maybe that is short-term and create a plan to tackle long-term goals over the next 9 months. Start with what you know and build it to last. Make choices that give you freedom and flexibility.

This weekend, make a good faith effort to pitch your ideas to some friends. If you’ve been feeling unfocused, they might help you see what is so special about you and your work and help you get focused. I think you are a trailblazer who will make a meaningful contribution in the world.
