Broken connections

Part 1 of 2

The other day I initiated a break-up with a long-term friend I’ve known since my flight attendant days.

Sunday vibes

I’ve been up for two hours and it’s only 5:55 am. The repetitive numbers in sequence like this means something: it’s an angel number, meaning it’s a message from the angels. 🙂

The past week I’ve been seeing 222 twice (ha), 555 twice (as of today) and 333 once.

According to the internet, 555 is an angel number which bears the following message: a major life transformation is upon me. It will disrupt my current life and guide me onto my next life’s path. The angels (if you believe in such things) are guiding me to keep calm and positive as I navigate the challenges of this transformative period in my life.

I have coffee, and the little heater in the corner is blasting warm air toward me. Summer has moved on it seems, even though the daytime highs are still pleasant, sunny and warm, mostly.

Tarot Tuesday – the Death card

The Death card is often misunderstood in tarot readings. People think, oh now, someone is going to die!

In fact, the Death card is a positive, and often essential card for people who feel stuck or trapped in certain life situations. Think of a job you don’t like, a relationship that no longer serves you, or some other circumstance that makes you feel hopeless, unmotivated or stale.

When the Death card shows up in a reading, the most significant and powerful message it conveys is that of transformation.

Tarot Tuesdays – the Star card

I drew the Star card for the first time last weekend while making plans for the next chapter in my life.

Naturally, I was intrigued. I pulled this card in a sequence of three cards, like I usually draw, but like the last time, one card jumped the deck. This is the spread:

The King of Swords was the card that jumped the deck. It means something (but what?). I’ll go investigate this in a minute.

The Two of Cups and the Ace of Swords I placed on my past and future spot on my paper, and will look at later.

For now, I’m interested in the present. As you know from this post, my present has a bit of upheaval in it, but in a good way. I’m interested in seeing what this Major Arcana card, the Star, has to tell me.

The challenge with living in the present

Has anyone ever advised you to live in the present? To be focused on the here and now and not worry so much about past or future?

Sometimes, this is easier said than done, but I have noticed one thing:

When we shut out all the external and internal noise, it’s amazing what we can accomplish.

Tarot Supplement – The Judgement card

The Judgement is a Major Arcana card and appears right before the final card The World in the tarot deck.

I drew this card along with The King of Swords and The Lovers in reverse, both of which deserve their own analysis.

In this post, I will analyze the Judgement card, and see how it applies to life.

Old and ugly

Something has been percolating in my brain for a while, but I couldn’t find the words to talk about it on a public forum until today. Perhaps I will find the words if I simply type them into the keyboard.

It began with a syndicated episode of The Big Bang Theory. I see the scene in front of me but I can’t find it when I google it. It’s not so much the scene that made an impression anyway, it’s the phrase.

This is how I remember it (paraphrased):
