Tarot People, we are PUMPED!!!!
Fresh back from the readers studio where we met some awesome peeps, learned bunches, and are ready to share and grow our knowledge! SO if you wanna come to class early and practice your layouts and spreads, we have new goodies to play with!
The PLAN: We are going to study one card at a time!
First up is some intuition development, seeing what the card says to us personally with colors, folks on the card. the way their bodies are positioned etc, and then we will talk about what the traditional meanings are for the Rider Waite deck.
From there we will shred up some magazines for a collage fest as we create our own card with our own personal meanings and significance. Its also cool to cheat and put a few words on in or on the back of your card before we laminate that baby.
Bring your favorite deck or two, and for sure no experience necessary cause mostly we are wanting to have fun, hang with like minded people and get to know ourselves a little bit better through art.
Class is $13
It’s on Saturday nights from 5-7pm.
Interested, shoot me an email…this event is invite only. (cool huh!?!)
ps we are using Tarot Wisdom by Rachel Pollack if you wanna get that Formal
I have a Plan. A new Labor Whispering Plan. And it’s like the fool card in the tarot deck, which actually is like a birth. Starting over, no limits, stepping off a cliff with perfect faith and trust, kinda like this. The plan is to start getting as much Labor Whispering info out there as possible, share my professional protocol and get some birth peeps trained up and out into all necks of the woods. Sounds good, eh? So it’s free info to apply as you will and, for folks who need more help, get them matched up with a trained LaborWhisperer. So why do women go overdue? As in, not have the magical onset of labor on or before their due date? Here are my top three, and I ran it by the Total Labor Care Doula group, other wise known as TLC (Whoot Whoot!), and we are all pretty much on the same page. Next week I will tell you more on what to do about them, and how to recognize when it’s actually the 4th reason: that something’s up and really needs to be addressed. So more on that next week. Did you go overdue in a pregnancy? Any 20/20 hindsight on that? Great, leave me a comment here to share your knowledge and spread the word. Happy Birthday Elowyn! This text just in from Mama Sarah: “Hey Ro! Wanted to send you a pic of our little Elowyn! She came to meet us on April 29th in a very fast manner! She’s amazing and has filled my heart with more joy than I thought imaginable! Finn (who is 2.5 years old) was present for the whole thing and even held the flashlight for the midwife. Was amazing.” This week’s newsletter is coming at ya courtesy of* SunBee Circle “where children become inspired to handle difficulties in life by tales of magic and courage.” Sounds good, eh? XOXOXOXO, Rowan P.S.: Here is your #PlacentaTuesday. P.P.S.: Come see me, it’s been too long. Here’s a Happy Mother’s Day offer just for you. *wanna sponsor the newsletter? Sweet, reply for more deets.
Oh tarot, you know I love you. It probably loves me back.
I’ve been reading cards for about twenty years, most of those years professionally. Two choices: I can read for you, either in person or online. Use the “Book Now”/get read by Rowan link to make it happen. Choice 2) I can teach you how to read your own self. The Friday Night Witches and Bitches club meets at Texas Art Asylum right here in Houston, its an ongoing start-where-you-are type of class. That rules.
There is wine, shit talking, self expression, lots of learning. It’s AWESOME. 3rd option (it’s not finished yet, so thats why I didn’t mention it before) a self study online course for Tarot Creatives. I’ll get that to ya next Halloween, 2014! So let’s get to reading!
Talking to Smokey Red, a cab driver that was toting me back from an outcall, spurred this post.
He thinks driving a cab fucking sucks. He had a list of reasons it wasn’t working for him, and a resteraunt supply catalog jammed up on his dashboard. Said he’d only be driving a cab for 4 or 5, maybe even 6 weeks more. He had visions of a food trailer, toting barbecue, feeding people, that’s his passion. So what’s the plan, cab driving man? “Well, I don’t really have it written down, its all in my head.” And I wanted to support him, kick him in the ass a little, cause I don’t want it to stay “all in his head.” Keeping it all in your head makes you nuts. At first you obssess about your good idea, then you tallk about it all the time, and somehow all this talking makes you think you are getting somehwere, you buy a few random items that could, in theory, be part of your empire, if they, you know, worked right, had that missing wheel, or in the case of Smokey Red, if his trailer was code compliant, had that extra critical thingamabober, whatever. But in reality what you have is a bunch of wasted time, shit talking, friends and family who dont wanna hear about “your good idea” anymore, and a bunch of broken down crap and clutter. If it was a tarot reading, it would look like this.
Enter the year 2012, The Year of Getting Shit Done. Not an entrepruner you say? Thats cool, expand yourself, try these out on your nine to fiver or on your domestic goddess domain, or stop reading right now, but for the love of biscuits find SOMETHING that contributes to your personal growth. Not your spouse, not the dogs, not the kids, but for YOUUUUUUUUU. Just You, we will all be better for it. Still with me? Great. Step right on over and sign up for this dude’s blog, Chuck Blakeman. He wrote a piece about how to effectively goal set, and instead of either sweeping general plans (see above) he wants you to figure out your next set of goals, cause we all know shit gets real when you write it down. Lets do a quick check in here, HOW ARE THOSE NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS DOING? you know, the ones you made like less than two weeks ago? Yeah, thats what she said. Gee. Lets try something different. Won’t it be FUCKING AMAZING to not be staring back at 2012 going, “well damn, another year of not getting blah blah blah done.” Instead we will be doing elaborate secret code handshakes cause we rule our school, invested in ourselves, and created the life we want. We can be cool like that. Yes. Do me a favor (and you too) Comment below. Pick one from your list of 4-10 and tell me what this month’s objective is. Look, I’ll go first. I’m gonna relocate my clinic, move a bunch of furniture, and temporarily work from my groovy tree house apt while my awesome landlady, her old man, and myself build out my fantasy healing art space in the studio below the apt. For reals. We will, we will, rock this. Tell me your dream thats gonna come true. xo to the max, rowan
