Yadda Yadda Miaow

A friend came over and stayed last night, so this morning we did some readings.  I've done very few readings for myself of late, feeling I have no time.  It was really nice to return to the cards, and the reading made me laugh, partly because the deck is a fun one, partly because it seemed so appropriate.


I asked about the energies around our house move next week, and drew from the Marseille Cat Tarot (Lo Scarabeo, 2014).  The situation calls for good organisation and a firm hand, a la Emperor.

What I shouldn't do is flex my muscles to actually lift anything - one of those times when a card (Strength) seems more literal than metaphorical.  No thinking I'm strong enough to manage stuff, or letting my pride get in the way of nurturing myself, which is something that I've heard so often over the last few weeks, yet still struggle with.  Of course, it would be possible to interpret this card rather differently, but that's what just jumped out at me :)

Finally, what I should do is prioritise and balance things out, and maybe try to find the joy in doing so.  There will be a lot of different things going on, and getting a handle on that is important, and something I can safely do…  The quote around the two coins is interesting: it translates to "The deepest rivers flow with the least sound."  So, a time to get on with things quietly, but efficiently.  This card and quote also makes me think about dedicating even menial tasks to spirit, creating a balance between the practical and the spiritual.

  1. Which reminds me again of:

    Happy to hear you have given yourself a sensible share of the workload. Good for you!

    1. Yes, it's something I need reminding of pretty often, somehow… We'll see whether I can stick to it, but I do feel my limitations a little now :)

  2. I just love it when the tarot cards are so literal, lol. Here's hoping you can help direct traffic instead of doing any of the heavy lifting and carrying. These kitties sure made me smile!

    1. Yep, the cards can be so literal, and this deck is very cute ;) I like decks that make me smile when I see them, and these are remarkably readable, too!

    1. Ha ha, it's not exactly the most fun thing in the world. Last time we moved, we thought we'd be here for twenty years or more, but fate decreed otherwise. Maybe this time… :)
