Ace of Wands reversed. An inversion of will-power, one that’s mismanged and a poor shot. Rushing to a climax without regard to details or dynamic components.
Focus. Going from 0 to 100 is a disaster. It’s all about feeling the delicate transition through stages. Shift through all gears contiguously and give each level your focused attention. Very much a form of foreplay, it serves a valuable purpose.
Don’t jump to the end right away, you’ve only just begun. Enjoy the process, savor each step. 🃏 Tarot de Marseilles 🃏
One who is that “sad drunk” paranoid and lost in a deep inner struggle. They are seperate from reality, and seem to have an inability to respond to others around them because they are preoccupied with processing themselves. The mind becomes heavy, vacuous, and cannibalistic.
This is a drowning, struggling to find emotional and mental land to stand on. Ruled by Cancer, this Queen should find the socialite Gemini within and connect with the outside world to find that firm footing.
Speak out. Find other people who you trust and say how you feel. The more you hold back the more you do yourself a disservice. The more you connect the inner turmoil with outwardly spoken or written word the more you release yourself from this conflict.
Carved a pumpkin, roasting pumpkin seeds, made pumpkin pie… I’m ready to start having time for these things. I’d like to recognize and practice the wheel of the year as part of my growing practice.
Embrace All Hallows’ Eve, and I hope you all have a fantastic Samhain tomorrow.
Take moments throughout the night and day to feel the named and nameless who ride the winds upon your mortal flesh. Remember those dead, gone, lost, stolen, and forgotten for who they were and what they’ve done. Honor life by embracing death.
Currently seeking healing and grounding: 7 of Wands.
As responsibilities pop up and demand attention: strike them. Management and delegation are key in maintaining control at this time. Do not let others take your power, but instead offer them an imitation of it to occupy their minds.
Keep up appearances, do what you can, the rest just needs to be pushed in a general direction away from yourself.

Happy Halloween! To celebrate the season I started a new project! I’m going to be making zines each month responding to a different theme. This month is ‘Seance’. You can find out more and order your copy at www.stretchtarot.com.
This card again… okay… 3 of Disks.. You know last time I pulled this I was having trouble working then suddenly I spent the whole weekend working on things that needed to be done. I guess it’s not over.
Passion of Mars in the Diligence of Capricorn. An explosion of effort in creative and laborious activities. Expect to be busy and engaged with others as things develop.
How badly do you want it? Do your actions equate it?
🃏 Thoth Tarot (Aleister Crowley + Lady Freida Harris) 🃏
3 of Pentacles… work. AKA what I’ve been struggling with a whole lot lately.
Just the act of staying diligent throughout the day is difficult. So much of my attention is diverted. I feel I could really benefit from mentorship, as the card suggests, but that’s not really available to me right now.
Trying to navigate opportunities… what to do and what to not: Ace of Wands reversed, and 10 of Cups reversed.
It’s advised I avoid investing my whole heart in one thing, as I’ve been doing… I should instead spend that energy on every pass that comes my way because it’s more likely something will match and grow out of it.
To curb myself I’ll need to stop romanticing the most glorious life possible and bring it to a level of reality. Don’t make assumptions about what hasn’t happened, and don’t believe a dream has come to pass when it is indeed not (yet) reality.
Move on to other things. Stay open to possibilities, stay factual, stay realistic.

Advice to stay grounded and centered this week: Knight of Wands.
Loyalty to friends and passion in works. Always on the go and ready for exploration. Take on challenges with a strong will and sense of humor. Display feelings on the sleeve so everyone knows you’re for real.
Sometimes to stay balanced doesn’t mean keeping your head down. Especially if one’s nature is already as such, you need a little oomph to counter-balance it.
