Book #7 ~ Underway

I recently received a book proposal and have accepted it. I’ll begin work on Book #7 this Monday. This will be my main focus for the next few weeks and months to meet deadlines. If I’m scarce, it means I’m busy.

Wheel of Fortune

The following is an excerpt from my book, The Ultimate Tarot Guide for Your Personal Tarot Journey.  You can purchase your copy at Amazon.

Wheel of Fortune 
Keywords: completion; a game plan; success; Lady Luck; the gambler; taking chances; all your eggs in one basket; winning the lottery

Archetypes: The Gambler (Kenny Rodgers); Robin Hood; race car drivers; politicians; business women

Correspondences:

Number/1

Planet/Jupiter

Element/Earth

Astrological Sun Sign/Aquarius

In a Nutshell: Luck

Upright Interpretation:

There is the immense relief of getting something accomplished, of meeting a deadline, of coming to the end of a monumental task, the satisfaction of having completed a job-well-done. This is a happy cat-chasing-it’s-tale card, but with a game plan, a touche to the world. If no one else understands where you’re coming from, or how you’re going to do what it is you’re planning to do, know that you– and the universe– will have it all straight.

Reversed Interpretation: The cat’s still chasing it’s tale, but this time it’s going in mindless circles with no game plan and not a clue as how to stop the merry-go-round to get off. You’re a long way from done, says the reversed Wheel of Fortune. Everything is left open, up in the air, with nary a solution or set date of completion in sight. Get a grip. Don’t let life, or unforeseen circumstances, rule the outcome of your day, your week, your month, or your life.

Study Questions:

1. What is your first impression of this card?

2. What does this card mean to You?

Affirmations for Meditation:

3. I won’t let an opportunity pass me by.

4. I will learn and live, love and grow, by grasping at Life’s impossibilities.

5. I can do it; I can do it; I can do it!

A Tarot Reading for The Wheel of Fortune:

Wheel of Fortune ~ The World ®; 10/pentacles; Queen/cups ®
Everything is spinning, including the Earth and human lives, spinning towards their destiny, spinning out of control, spinning onto other levels, spinning closer towards endings and beginnings. Your movement, Wheel of Fortune, is dizzy and off-center, a little tipsy maybe, as if you’ve had a glass or two of wine, or something even stronger. There comes with this movement a sense of closure or completion, a sense of fulfillment, a sense of relief. Are you playing with us, or with yourself, dear Wheel of Fortune, as from the center of your card, you boldly and firmly state, “What goes around, comes around.”

Lady Luck, they call you, and with this power you wield, you either drop golden coins on surprised recipients, or you empty the pockets of those daring enough to face off with you one too many times. It gives the world pause for thought. Is life just really one big chance? Are we here to fulfill a destiny, or are we nothing more than numbers spinning on some luminous game of chance in the center of this big black universe? And what is destiny, after all, and what constitutes riches and golden precious coins. All of these things may be something different for each individual, and it’s this glaring fact that you chase us with.

Wheel of Fortune, you inspire us to follow our dreams, to listen to our intuition, to open our arms to visions. You remind us of the connection we have with Spirit and the laws of physics, and the hard reality of life. You remind us that chances often come from the most unexpected direction and source, and you fill us with a sense of hope. If life is a game, you tell us, we all have an equal chance to win. 

Tarot for Grownups

Tarot for Grownups ~ (Review)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1780995997/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i4

This 126 page tarot how-to was probably one of the most entertaining books on the great 78 I have read in awhile. The author and her unique storytelling style held me captivated right from jump. She told it like it was and thought out of the box when it came to the meaning of the cards. It was like sitting down with someone over coffee as they explained the inner workings of the tarot. She absolutely delightfully is not by the book and it just felt so real and refreshing. I would recommend this special helper to anyone looking for an out of the box approach to divination. Thanks Amythyst, you do so rock, I will never look at the tarot quite the same way again.Love & Light, Riki Frahmann

Blogging on WordPress

This is just a note to let you know that I’ll be posting a lot more at Every Cat Has a Tale than I will be here at my beloved Magickal Connections. I absolutely hate the new blogging tools at this site. I find them awkward and restrictive, as well as irritating.

I love this blog, but if anyone has noticed, as far as posting goes, I use it primarily to pass along a link to new posts at my Other Blog. I will continue to do this.

However, I have to say that over the years here at WordPress, I’ve built this blog up with pages and pages of informative information on tarot and witchcraft, and I feel (quite proudly) that this blog can still stand on its own.

I’m not giving up Magickal Connections, but I’m using it in a different way for my own purposes.

Text Message Cheating ~ It’s Like Having an Extra Pussy in Your Pocket

New blog post @ EVERY CAT HAS A TALE!

After you read this article, you might wish for the good old days of a rotary landline phone that hung on the kitchen wall with four feet of cord attached to it.  It would be a little hard to use this device for cozy clandestine conversations with the opposite sex.

Defamatory Social Media Posts

You can be sued for personally bashing someone online…

When individuals feel that their reputation is damaged because of a reckless comment made on Facebook, Twitter, or other social media channels, they may consider pursuing a defamation lawsuit against the insulting party. Through a libel lawsuit, they may be able to recover compensation for the damages that they have sustained.

Your Daily Tarot Cards ~ from The Tarot Parlour

I just pulled 5 tarot cards for today.  Is there something that you need to hear?… 10/pentacles; 10/cups; 2/wands; 8/cups; 7/swords ~ 

https://www.facebook.com/pg/readingswithamythystraine/posts/?ref=page_internal

I just pulled 7 of swords ~ a liar is about to put his foot in his mouth, or to fall in a well-placed trap. People who practice deception should realize that deception is a facade. This facade takes a lot of work and energy to create, and it can’t be successfully held in place forever. The truth will eventually pop out, like a glitch in the matrix. What follows is a domino effect. People who practice deception are usually willing to risk losing everything… follow the link above to see what the other cards have to say.

In the Spirit of Halloween ~ Ask a Mortician

This little lady is a mortician in Los Angeles, with a mortuary business called “Undertaking LA”.  She’s the author of books on death, and she’s an advocate for “going green” with natural burials and a lot of what would be considered unorthodox alternatives.  She’s hilarious, and charming, and an absolute delight to watch — yes, even with her subject matter.

Enjoy!… Caitlin Doughty
