Weight, Tarot, and other stuff

Spudguns!   It's not yet 7am here this morning where I am, I'm up, not awake but up. I have been seeing the topic of tarot journaling everywhere lately.  To me that is a sign that maybe it's something I should be thinking about.

Only, I have a difficult time wrapping my head around the whole thing. That and to be honest, I find it a bit of a snore. Taking a deck and working with it for a few months or a full year, examining how each card makes me feel on a daily basis, then writing about it.
I write enough about my emotions as it is, and nothing seems to keep my attention for more then a few days straight at a time anymore so...
Plus, it's another form of art journaling and that's just another branch of scrabooking.

Haven't had a coffee yet this morning, so my blunt side is showing.

What I have noticed myself in the past few weeks of general tarot use, is that the 9 of Pentacles and the 3 of Pentacles have been popping up together a lot.   Both of these represent the end of a cycle and rewards. The 9 of Pentacles, also can mean weight loss/gain.

Here's where this ties in this morning.   If you've been reading me for long, you know I've had an issue with my weight over the course of things. I've admitted it more often then maybe I should have.

I had a massive five paragraph bit here about the whole weight thing over the last few years, but decided to delete it because it was sounding like some sort of infomercial so...

I'm not sure anymore what it was I was trying to say...need that coffee...but I am trying to figure out more ways to bring the tarot into play here on this blog. That, and it's been a week since I posted on this blog so hence the ramble.

I do want to talk about the weight thing too, only maybe today isn't the day for it.

Sunday June 14th 2015

Saturn. The planet is shifting from one zodiac to another, and is bumping into other planets at the moment. Which is something it doesn't do too often. This means, that a lot of the dren you've been going through over the last few years, will smooth out.  Either you will find that you no longer have massive obstacles or you will just no longer care about the situation at all.

I already see where a lot of the things that have been sitting on my last nerve for the last few years, melting away. I do believe that I'm falling more into the no longer giving a crap, side of things.

Saturn is the planet of tests and rewards. So, a lot of people who get tarot readings, runes done, reiki work done etc, will be told blockages are lifting.  The Wheel of Fortune and Death cards will start to appear more often in tarot readings, because new paths are opening up.

Which is you know, all about timing, as Mercury went direct few days ago. So the past month of bad communication, missed flights, broken computers/cell phones will start to ease up.  Things will start to gel a bit better.

I have to admit, if it wasn't for the fact there is so much math involved in astrology, I'd be doing this as more then just a hobby. As math was always the anvil on my cartoon character if you know what I mean. Kills me every time.
That's all I've got up my sleeve this morning.  Coffee's getting cold.

When did zombies become the new black?

So if witches are the new zombies, when did zombies become the new vampires?

I don't get zombie culture, sorry but I don't.  With that said, I love the tv show iZombie.  Maybe because it's more like a vampire show then a typical zombie movie? That's my answer and I'm sticking to it.
As a non zombie fan, but a vampirologist, I find myself face first sometimes in zombie culture. They do cris-cross, and some can argue are off shoots of the same thing.   Yeah, had that argument many many times before. Believe it or not, I am on the side that they are indeed the same thing only really more like cousins then the same species.

Anyways, just when did the popular mindset jump off the coffin and onto the brains bandwagon?  Must have happened in the last couple of years while my back was turned.

Speaking of witches and vampires and all that sort of stuff, I did a post on my movie blog this morning about my thoughts on the remake of the Craft. Just a few lines really.  And this is vampire theme week on there as well.

That's about all for now...kiss kiss noise.
