Week Ahead : The Tear Fool

This week, even with the madness of the kids not being at school, we have the Tear Fool come out and join us. I’m all for letting the tears flow, but why this week? When I started this post on Easter Monday, I hadn’t any inclination that less than 48 hours later, I’d want to cry. Okay, so I’m female, and we’re supposed to cry at the drop of a hat, right? Pah! What a stereotype! However, with my website being off line for 16 hours, I was starting to feel frustrated and very annoyed. With the kids being off, I was / am more tired than usual, so maybe the website frustrations were the straw that broke the camel’s back, so to speak. However, it soon transpired that there was nothing I could do in any way, shape or form. All that was being done, was being done by…

Week Ahead : The Wish Fool : 23rd March 2014

The cute Fools Oracle reminds us that we have to believe in ourselves and our own wishes. What do you truly desire? What outcomes do you wish for? Lets be really clear here. There is a lot to be said of being clear about what you want and what you wish to happen. Sometimes it takes a while to work out what you want, to work out what your desires are. It does require some focus and with today’s busy life-style, that can be much harder than in previous generations. The question is always, what are your wishes? What is it you believe in? What is it you want to realise? Do you believe in the magic that we’re born with? Before things become a reality, we have to dream them. If dreams aren’t wishes coming through to our conscious minds, I really don’t know what is. Dreams can be…

Week Ahead : The Wonder Fool

The whimsical Fools Wisdom Oracle comes out to join us and reminds us that we should always retain the sense of wonder we’re given when we’re kids. When was the last time you looked at the world with a sense of wonder, curiosity and discovery? I forget, being a busy mum that my children have this question of “why” at least once a day from the two that can talk. They’re curious, they ask questions, even if it’s not a why it’s a “Daddy, how does” type question. I forget that there’s more to discover in this realm of life, but we take things for granted when we’re adults. When life of raising kids, the job, commuting, working the system and in general, being alive in this modern age, we forget that life is magical and wonderful. We forget to discover the magic that surrounds us. At the worst, we’ve…

Week Ahead : The Doubt Fool

It’s time to borrow a Latin phrase; “nullius in verba” with the Fool that doubts and doesn’t believe everything that he sees. Seeing is believe, or so people tell me… Have you heard that phrase from Alice in Wonderland? It’s been years since I heard that musical, or the songs it contains. I don’t usually do musicals, I can’t watch the Sound of Music, or many musicals. I did manage to watch Les Miserable one day. Not sure how though. But the phrase, despite coming from a musical, is apt with this card. Do you believe all that you see? Do you believe the doubt and cynicism others spout out of their mouths? Sometimes we do, as we leave their presence feeling a hundred times worse than when we bumped into them. It’s hard to ask for help too, when we doubt ourselves and listen to the demon inner voice…

Week Ahead : The Meaning Fool

Mercury goes direct this week and the Meaning Fool comes out to remind us to say what we mean and ensure that it holds a meaning for you. Mercury retrograde (for me anyway) has bitten hard, I’ve had technology die, play up, birthdays have arrived, loom, medical appointments are scheduled and I’ve taken the time this week to enjoy my children during their half term. The Meaning Fool (p11) is inviting us to reflect upon our present intentions, choices, priorities, direction and words. So, what’s the purpose of your course of action now? How are they significant to you? Others don’t need to understand what you’re doing, or why, that’s for you to know and them to work out. If they suggest that what you’re doing is meaningless or futile, well, carry on with confidence and a smile on your face. If you understand the meaning, then that is all…

Week Ahead : Fools Wisdom ~ Duty

The second card from the rather cute Fools Wisdom comes to join us this week and if Duty wasn’t on your list, it looks like it’s going to be for a wee while! The sense of duty comes to us all at some point, sometimes, we embrace it and sometimes we try to avoid it. However it comes, our immediate attention is required, demanded. Having a positive attitude during this time can be hard if you have duties that divide you. There is, I believe a time when you have to say; no more! I can’t take on anymore, I can’t keep splitting myself around like this! And you cut back your duties where you can, where you have to. What are the most important duties to you as say, parent? A spiritual being? A man? A woman? A witch? A child? A brother? A sister? A friend? A close…

Week Ahead: Fools Wisdom ~ Hope

We have a new Oracle come and join us for 2014. I hope you like this cute little Oracle deck and the wisdom that it contains within. The first card up is the Hope Fool. Like The Fool from the Tarot, we have the little dog, the faithful companion who loves us unconditionally. The fool tends his little plant, aware of the hope that a new life can bring. Such great things can come from something as small as a seed, full of the information from its parents, striving to live and be all it can. Hope is there, it’s always here, but at times we’re fearful of success or of hoping for too much. This little plant has its roots firmly planted in the ground, firmly connected to the divine flow of life that pulses its way through the earth. This little plant isn’t waiting for the Universe to…
