Hello, Subscribers. My weekly writings will help you prepare for the week and set yourself up for success. I glean insights from various intuitive tools about behaviors and patterns and can help you do the same. Let’s get set up for success. You can support my work by joining my Patreon:

It’s time for an accountability check-in. Last week, I was on vacation and did not stress myself out about this blog. I have maintained evening reflections and protected my peace. I have not been as successful in keeping my decompression appointments, but I have increased my step count. I also celebrate my failures because they mean I tried despite the potential risk. Finally, I am down to only thirteen open tabs, so I am on a roll for unsubscribing and letting things go.

Let us get ready for the week ahead. I am using the Galaxy Tarot this week, which features the Rider-Waite deck, and we will explore moving on from failure. It happens to all of us. You put forth your best effort and fail. How do you persist? Should you persist? Let’s explore. We begin with the Seven of Swords reversed. It depicts a man carrying away five swords and leaving two behind. He is carrying the swords bare-handed and not bleeding. I always feel like this character is trying to get away with something. In my situation, perhaps I am trying to put a positive spin on the failure instead of objectively reviewing it. What went well? The event was well organized, and it was much easier to register for it than previous events. What did not go well? It did not draw any interest. Why is that? It could be the messaging or the time frame. I got several confirmations that my skills are valuable and necessary, so I must figure out how to convey them appealingly. Yes, I am not giving up. I will try again. How about you?

Mindset plays a role in achieving our dreams, but we will not wish things into reality. The Knight of Cups is a knight with a winged helmet, holding a cup, riding a pale horse, about to cross over a river. Are we letting our feelings run rampant? The horse seems to be assessing if the river is passable. What if the water is too deep or the current too strong? As Bon Jovi sang, are we “living on a prayer”? In most spiritual practices, you need intention, faith, and action. I had a firm intention and envisioned a successful event. I believed in my heart of hearts that this would be awesome. I also did not take as much action as was necessary. If I am honest, I envy people who seem to attract everyone with honeyed words. However, I also have to admit that they are putting effort behind the scenes to make it appear easy. Dreaming is good, but you need to take tangible actions to make them a reality. What will be done differently this time around?

The next card is The World. A nude woman wrapped in purple cloth holds what appears to be two candles burning at both ends. She is centered in a laurel wreath surrounded by four clouds, each containing a being. The top left is a blond man in profile, the top right is an eagle, the bottom left is a bull, and the bottom right is a lion. Everything is there to be successful. The woman is comfortable being nude, so I must be confident in being my authentic self. Symbols of divine guidance, vision, determination, and strength surround her. This card is the end of a cycle journey and the start of a new one. What have I learned from the past, and how can I incorporate that into creating the future I envision? Since this woman is not alone, I am not alone. I can ask for feedback from trusted advisors. Do not give up if you believe in what you are trying to accomplish. However, it would be best to try new things because continuing on old paths will ensure you will again end up at a dead end.

We are fired up! The world is our oyster, and we are turning those irritations into pearls. Sounds great, right? Again, let’s not get caught up in total fantasy. Failure to plan is planning to fail. What could go wrong? How will we overcome the obstacles? Our final card is the Ace of Cups. A giant hand emerges from a cloud holding a gold cup overflowing with water that is being poured into a lily pond. There is also a dove holding a sacrament flying into the cup. Lilies grow in muck. The muck of our past failures can be rich in nutrients for our next adventure. Everything needed is in our grasp. Do you believe in yourself? Do you trust your instincts? Aces are the beginning of something new. This week, dust off the saddle and get back on the horse. Pay attention to feedback and be open to new ideas. I encourage you to try and fail every day. You are not failing; you are learning. Namaste.
