Feeling the Pressure…

Sus’s contract is up in April and that means we will be leaving India. It also means that it is time once again to purge 4 years of accumulated stuff. Where does it all come from? We did a major purge before we moved here, we moved with just our clothing, the pets and their…

Breaking Bad Habits

I might be jumping the gun a little bit here but I have to start somewhere. Therapy (talk) had helped me to process my pesky and uncomfortable emotions. Group Therapy had given me a sense of belonging and reassured me that I wasn’t alone.¬† Working with the Tarot had allowed me to utilize the talk…

I Am…?

“I Am” are undoubtedly the two most powerful words in existence with them you can build yourself up or pick yourself apart. You are stating your awareness of Self. How do you see You? Do you choose the affirmative perspective and declare the great “I Am a glorious creation that is filled with limitless possibilities”…

Normalcy or something sort of like it.

I never did get a post published at the end of the week. The Holi holiday festivities, beginning of yet another wedding season and the fact that internet has been spotty (my guess is that with all the construction (to house the masses of Mumbai) someone clipped the cable and being a holiday and the…

The Weekend

The weekend did not go as planned which, unfortunately, happens a lot here in Mumbai. The dogs are both doing better and after almost two weeks of antibiotics they now eye me suspiciously every time I come near them and feeding time has become a chore. My two fluffy garbage disposals now spend most of…

The Sun, Judgement and The World

We are down to our last three Major Arcana cards and we as the Fool have been through many obstacles. We understand that there will be many more. We can face these future obstacles confident that having mastered Self we will from here on out consciously approach these future obstacles with grace, dignity, integrity, and…

Simple Pleasures…

We are down to our final three Major Arcana Tarot cards and I find myself with a bit of Brain Fog (common for people with Bipolar) and knowing that I probably wont do those last three cards any justice if I forge ahead I am going to do a post about simple pleasures. Life can…

Temperance, The Star, and The Moon

# 14 -Temperance¬†(Patience, Balance, Moderation) The Temperance card is that, “haven’t I been put through enough already and can I just get a break?” card. It is a reminder to have patience with yourself; as well as with others. It prompts you to look outside yourself for assistance (support network) and clear up any loose…

Test…

technical difficulties…random test. Fingers crossed this works.

The Tower

The Tower card is a universal Wake Up card, pure and simple. It is that card that says, “Hey, I have given you every opportunity to deal with your issues in a gradual and gentle way but you just didn’t get it done…so…Surprise! You have to deal with all those scary things you’ve been hiding…

The Devil

I am going to jump ahead in the tarot deck a bit and we are skipping Temperance (for now) and I am going to make todays post all about the Devil card and tomorrow we will look at The Tower. The cards of Death, the Devil and The Tower are probably the three scariest cards…

Death

The Tarot Death card is probably one of the most infamously feared cards in the major arcana (the Devil card is a close second), and because of its infamy I have decided to give it its very own post. I admit that I am a bit of an oddity and Death has never been one…
