Dreaming Way ~ Moving On

I’ve been back-posting my daily draws from May because I love how the Dreaming Way Tarot reads, but this will be the last of that.  I could go on for all of May, but if I’m bored with my daily work drama, then everyone else must be as well!  🙂

Using the Dreaming Way Tarot, by Rome Choi and Kwon Shina, published by US Games Systems, I drew four cards for my day, May 6.  My new accountant started today and I wanted to see what the cards had to say about it.

1)  Main Energy for the Day – Page of Cups, Rx
2)  What is my Lesson for today? – Five of Cups
3)  What Insight can I gain? – Justice
4)  Advice Going into Tomorrow – Six of Pentacles, Rx

2013-5-6-daily Dreaming Way

The Page of Cups reversed – I’m feeling a bit like a fish out of water today.  I’ve never had the full responsibility of training someone from scratch before, and I feel as if I’m feeling my way, adjusting as I go.  A rather unsettling feeling…

What lesson can I see in the Five of Cups?  Because I just got this card a few days ago and saw it as representing me and my former co-worker, it’s hard to see it fresh for this reading.  And because said former co-worker has definitely left her mark on this job, I’m hesitant to dump everything, mess-to-be-cleaned-up and all, on the new co-worker.  Maybe the lesson is that I need to start fresh and not project former’s mistakes onto new…

Justice as the Insight, I see this as a reiteration that I need to give the new co-worker a fresh start.  Don’t let the sins of the former mar the efforts of the successor.  BE FAIR.

What advice for tomorrow?  Maybe this is just me projecting, but the Six of Pents reversed seems to be telling me not to give the new co-worker too much too fast.  There is so much that needs to be cleaned up, and so many different responsibilities for her to get a handle on, I don’t want to sabotage her, which giving her too much could do.  I want her to succeed.  🙂

Dreaming Way Daily for May 1

I don’t usually use reversals, but I thought I would today, reversals indicating an internal focus and uprights representing external forces.  Again using the Dreaming Way Tarot, by Rome Choi and Kwon Shina, published by US Games Systems, I drew three cards for today’s energies:

1)  Predominant Energy of the Day – Knight of Pentacles, Rx
2)  Lesson for Today – Eight of Wands
3)  Insights to Gain from my Lesson – Ace of Cups

2013-5-1-daily Dreaming Way

I see here that the Knight of Pents is reversed, which I associate with my internal need to feel stable and in control.  (And he did appear just a few days ago as that very thing.)

The Eight of Wands is upright, which tells me that the work will be coming at me fast and furious today (which it did, by the way).  And if I can work quickly, it stands to reason that I’ll get more accomplished.  🙂

I wasn’t really sure about this position, Insights to Gain from my Lesson, but I thought I would try it.  The Ace of Cups could possibly represent a feeling of accomplishment, and because the card is upright, that could mean that my accomplishments will actually be noticed by someone!  (Imagine that!)

And in grand fashion, Temperance appeared on the bottom of the deck, but in the reversed position.  So my question comes from a place inside of me that needs that balance in my life.

14-DW Rx

Maybe this card says “Balance” to me because it’s a need I feel so strongly.  Maybe not everyone needs the balance as I do?   Well, let’s see….  My birthday (Sep 23) is right on the cusp of Virgo and Libra, not to mention that my actual natal chart has four planets in Virgo and four in Libra.  Now, I don’t know much about astrology, but that seems to be pretty well balanced, and as a Libra (much of the time), I always need to see a balance in all things.  <shrug>  🙂

Dreaming Way ~ Time to Look on the Bright Side!

This week I’m using the Dreaming Way Tarot, by Rome Choi and Kwon Shina, published by US Games Systems, Inc.  There’s just something about the soft, nostalgic drawings in this deck that speak to me.  Although, I don’t care how juvenile the art may appear to some, this deck has been anything but gentle!

I asked, What energies do I need to be aware of today in one or any areas of my life?

Eight of Swords  ~  Five of Cups  ~  Ten of Swords

2013-4-30-daily Dreaming Way

Our company/my boss had to fire the accountant I was working with since she just wasn’t getting the job done quickly or accurately enough (and we gave her two years), so I see the Eight of Swords as me being trapped in my responsibilities left behind by this co-worker.  (The more I find, the more I wish we hadn’t let it go so long)  Too much to do and no way out, it feels like.

I see me and my former co-worker in the Five of Cups: her reckless juggling of her cups, letting things spill everywhere (and behind my back); me holding on to what’s left, cups held low by the very tips of my fingers, feeling as if I’m going to lose them at any second.

Ten of Swords – I guess I’ve finally hit rock bottom, so there’s no where to go from here but up, right?  🙂

I’m going to choose not to get depressed by this spread today, since I’m too aware of where I am.  We have a new accountant starting in a week, and I am feeling optimistic that given time, she’ll be a great improvement on this last person!

Dreaming Way Tarot

I received this deck, Dreaming Way Tarot by Rome Choi (art by Kwon Shina), back in September or October 2012, compliments of US Games Systems, as a review deck.  This is a deck I would probably not have purchased myself at first glance, so I am soooo glad it found its way to me!  Thank you, Lynn Araujo! 🙂

However, the time in my life being what it was (work, work, work, sleep, work, work, work, etc.) it got put in a drawer until it started calling to me.  And I gotta say, when a deck starts a callin’, I have a very hard time ignoring it!

I pulled three cards (and always the bottom card as well, which I position to the left as the underlying energies of the situation) asking “What do the cards want to tell me?”

2013-4-17 Dreaming Way Interview

I don’t usually do open spreads, but since I didn’t have a specific question at the time the deck was calling, I just let the cards talk to me.  And wow….  they spoke loud and clear.  First of all, Temperance is a special card for me, for better or worse.  From the time I started using the tarot, Temperance has consistently popped out of almost every deck I’ve used, as if to say, “You’re not hearing what I’m trying to tell you!”  In this spread, I say to her, “I hear you!!  But making a change in life is not always easy, you know?”

Temperance faces me straight on, feeling very “in my face” so to speak.  And her wings could be reminding me to lean more on my Higher Power for help.  She’s sandwiched between two tens, as if to say that it’s time to end this cycle I’m on.  Too much on my plate is making my family suffer.  The people/family in Ten of Pentacles is looking toward me, seeing me trying to pick up all of those wands in the Ten of Wands, wondering when they’re ever going to get my attention.  And of course, my back is to them, too busy to see that they are desperate for my attention.  (As if I didn’t feel badly enough…)

The Knight of Pentacles was on the bottom of the deck, ye ol’ stick-in-the-mud, looking on at the sad scene.  Or is that pentacle, representing his desire for a stable life, blocking his view?

These cards are sending me a clear message that my work has completely taken over my life.  It has gone from Three of Pentacles, to Eight of Pentacles, to a Ten of Wands, no more just about work and doing a good job, but it’s become all I can see anymore.  Thus an appearance from Temperance, my trusty personal alarm, telling me (AGAIN) that I’m out of balance.

By the way, yes, it is the end of June and I’m back posting, but I had so much fun with this deck I wanted to share.  I don’t always post on my blog, website, or message groups I’m on, but I always keep my handwritten tarot journal.  🙂
