Monday Musings + Prompt +Motivation

Good evening my little Tarot Tots. It’s your Auntie Vyv!

The Daily Card by Mystic Mondays Tarot: “Temperance 14”

I’m using a writing prompt from Nature Bound Pagan today to just kind of muse and journal on here. You can find those prompts they make on here.

The prompt for today 11.16.2020 is: “How can I be grateful for negative events in my life?”

I am just kind of thinking about negativity and how I can be thankful. I am grateful for them for helping me become the humanoid being that I am today. I’ve managed to survive through the hell that I had dealt with as a child and even some of my adult life. I’ve had to cut people out of my life, like some of my extended family. They were negative about the ways that I am the way that I am. How can you love me if you can’t love the various parts?

I have friends now who I count as my extended family, and someof them I even count as my actual family. You can often hear me talking about my friends, Rose, Luna, and Panda. These three humanoid beings are beings in my digital coven. I am such good friends with them that we consider eah other family. We take care of each other. We do what we can to be there for each other through thick and thin. It’s nice to have them around, even the days we’ve had where we were fighting for some reason or another (and I guarantee that i was one of the instigator a majority of the time!!)!

I own my mistakes. Today, the Monday motivational card by Mystic Mondays Tarot is Temperance, and I think that that is kind of funny because that is the card that I use to represent myself when I’m reading for people. I consider myself an agent of change, and that is what I consider most tarot readers and psychics and things to be. We see and do things that people do not do and we can change the ways people live their lives. Not everyone changes themselves and it’s important for us to realize that we can’t change everyone and we can’t force anyone to change. This goes for anyone really.

I’m thankful for the negative experiences in my life because I have lived through them. How do they feel to you? Have your experiences changed who you are? I am sure they have. Let’s see what kind of things changed you in the comments if you want.

The thing that changed me the most was my father’s attitude. Because of his usual mood, I find myself being the kind of person that anyone can come to and talk to. He was never that person for me. My mother was always that person. I consider my mother to be like some kind of saint, but she has her flaws as well. My father would yell at us all the time about a variety of things so I don’t really like yelling or raising my voice. I will never raise my voice to someone I’m mad at. If I am mad, I find that I can use my words to discuss what needs changing. This is one of the reasons and ways that I am thankful for that negativity to change me.

How have you changed?

Lots of Love,

Weekend Forecast: Friday the 13th Edition!

Greetings and salutations Tarot Tots!!

This week we are using The Robin Wood Tarot by Robin Wood

How are we doing my little Tarot Tots? Today was Friday the 13th, an ominous day in the history of superstitions. 2020 AND Friday the 13th? What a combination! But mine was actually pretty decent. I got a lot of things done and I’m even motivated.

Speaking of motivation, did you know that Mars went Direct astrologically today? If you’d like to read some more information on Mars going direct and the retrograde, feel free to hit up one of my favorite little blogs at Cafe Astrology. They always have a lot of fun little tidbits for you to check out. I highly suggest them.

Let’s get started. This week we’re using the Robin Wood tarot, which is an absolute classic!! Great for a green witch but excellent for any other reader as well, no matter the practice.

THEME:
9 The Hermit (upright)–
(keywords: solitary, meditation, introspection)- It’s always good to spend some time with your thoughts and now is the time to do so. I’ve personally been looking into the practice of Hygge and this is a great thing for you to try out at this time. It’s autumn, the world is crazy, and you’ve got your family (in whatever aspect you have it). It’s time to come together and live in a hyggeligt manner. Why do you think the Danes are among the happiest in the world? For some insight: Visit Hygge-Life

FRIDAY:
8 of Pentacles (upright)–
(keywords: learning, creation, ingenuity)– Today the thoughts you should spend some time with are things that are about education in some way shape or form. Maybe you should spend some time on a hobby that you hadn’t done before or maybe something that you haven’t done in a long time. It’s time to get some rest and relaxation in this weekend and you’re going to get that done!

SATURDAY:
9 of Cups (reversed)–
(keywords: “party hearty”, lack of fun, smug)– We’re spending time with ourselves today and it might affect us in a way that may be difficult. It’s not hard to get into a slump, so don’t panic. You can always stop and pick up the pieces tomorrow. Use today for rest and relaxation. Practice something that makes you feel good or pleasurable. Make sure you don’t overdo it though, of course.

SUNDAY:
17 the Star (upright)–
(keywords: hope, faith, mastery)- It’s clear that the weekend was NOT a total bust. You got some things down and hopefully you’re down to try another week. You’re ready for the upcoming week. I am proud of you. Spend today de-stressing just one more day. It’s good to sometimes take those moments away from the world. Have hope that things will be better and maybe watch a movie or read a book. Might as well do something educational in the process.

That’s it for this weekend. Auntie Vyvyan Loves you.

Weekend Forecast 11.6-11.8.2020

Greetings and Salutations my little Tarot Tots!!!

This Week’s deck is the Modern Witch Tarot Deck by Lisa Sterle

The past few weeks have been difficult for everyone. It’s nice to see we’re all still around to keep up with this sort of thing. But, this is one of those things that tends to happen as Mercury is in Retrograde and ends up finally going back to being direct. I hope it didn’t treat you too badly. It was around for what felt like ages, even if it wasn’t.

And of course a 2020 Mercury Retrograde really has to go out with a bang. The people who live in my state in the United States were out of power (and some still are) this past week and now it’s finally coming back on just today! Like I said, some of the people here are still without power. Crazy, right? Gotta love Oklahoma weather.

My husband and I had to have our car towed out of our own driveway!!! It was pretty crazy. Our driveway is almost purely mud so it’s hard for us to get it back out of there sometimes, but we’ve never had to tow it out yet. Our car got stuck up to the frame.

Let’s get on with this weekend’s forecast (makes no sense when I call them a forecast when I typically post them ON Fridays. ha ha):

THEME:
The World (Upright)
(keywords- harmony, enlightenment, self-love): This weekend is a time to relax before this upcoming holiday season. There is so much just general crap that you are going to have to deal with this year, we all are, but it’s important to take care of your self-care as soon as you can, as often as you can. YOU matter. And it’s like they say, “Healer, heal thyself.”

FRIDAY 11.6.2020
The Hierophant (Upright
)– (keywords- studious, scholarly, diligent): Today you should start your self care routine finding and getting in touch with like-minded individuals. Mayhaps you should check out the local book store? It will provide you with the confidence to get on with the rest of your weekend.

SATURDAY 11.7.2020
Five of Swords (Reversed)–
(keywords- anger, consequences, regret): This card isn’t always one of the better ones to come up with the keywords that I’ve got on there, but when its reversed, that’s actually a lot better. It’s good to see your mood is ACTUALLY IMPROVING. Don’t let the world get you down today. There’s a lot going on and you need to focus on yourself. This card is showing a lack of that, and it’s where you need to be. Just be careful not to focus too much. That’d be a damn shame.

SUNDAY 11.8.2020
Five of Cups (Reversed)–
(keywords- defeat, sadness, mourning): Yet another five, and these are some harsh cards…. but once again you’ve got it in reverse! This doesn’t get rid of all of the things that you should be mourning. Our way of life has changed so much this year. I think it’s just hitting us extra hard today. For a fun self care tip, do something physical today! It’s good to get out in the garden, maybe even just a potted plant, or maybe you just want to look at plants online! Plants are our natural allies. They give us the oxygen we need when we’re stressing out. Hell, we basically ARE just complex plants. Have you seen those cool “plant speak” bots they’ve made to translate their “brainwaves?” Pretty nifty if you ask me.

It’s a good plan to get some journaling done this weekend if you can as well. I love journaling personally, but I spend so much time doing everything else I almost never have time for it. We just have to find or make time for ourselves in the middle of our busy and hectic lives to do the things we enjoy (besides tarot, obviously).
