 So, once again, I used the Dreamer's Journal for this reading. Also, a reminder that when I draw the Moon card, it never means the traditional tarot meaning, so it probably doesn't apply here (which I checked). To interpret the card, I based everything on the picture in the card.

1) How to improve skills involved in your career: XVIII The Moon- Often in one's life, a person may feel their path is blocked. At these times, it may prove useful to look for and try paths that you may not have considered before. Extend your horizons and you may find a way around the block.

2) How to achieve recognition and advancement: 3 of Wands- You have laid the groundwork for success and have set goals in mind. Now is the time to take a step back and pay close attention to the responses from others. You do well at work, and signs of success will come.

3) Why this growth is important: 2 of Swords- Recognition and rewards will help you feel more confident when you face a decision at work tat you need to answer on your own. You may find it easier to weigh the options and move forward assured in your choice.

4) What not to do/is unimportant: XIV Temperance- When seeking improvement at work, do not try to find a balance between work and personal life. While at work, focus on the work; leave the issues you are facing with your personal life at home so as to not distract from the work at hand.

I really hope this helped because it was a bit challenging for me to read, especially the Moon in this case. Now for the hardest part for me: my question. How can I improve my ability to organize my time: between friends, school work, and personal time?

 [personal profile] kristyjnh said: "What about me needs to change?"

1) What needs to change?
  Ace of Fire
This card talks about burnout. Are you likely to start a project and never finish it. Your energy just dries up. You had the best intentions and just couldn't follow through.  I know I have a problem with this and I think you do too - maybe not as bad as me... But that's not saying much... Anyway what you need to change is that. You're likely hood to drop a project.

2) How to change
  Maiden of Water
Try approaching some of those projects that you've abandoned.  Give yourself a fresh start and try again. Also in the future really take the time to feel out if a project is something you really want to take on. Does it mean enough to you to make sure that it gets done? If the answer is no, maybe don't take it on then.

3) What not to change?
  I Am Friendly
I know that you've been striving to make more time for your friends and that you've also been trying to put yourself out there and make new friends at school too. Keep that up. Don't let your projects stop you from being social and have fun.

Hope this helps!

My question is... 
How can I improve at work?

 Okay Cali, here's your second reading. This is by no means overwriting Rishi's reading (she did a wonderful job and a very insightful reading after all) but rather to be read in conjunction with the first. Because this is a big issue for you and you could certainly use clarity regarding it, I'm going ahead with this. 

So as you know (because it's the message you keep getting) you keep being told that love (I assume most readings say romantic love) is needed for you to grow and then told to be patient regarding love. But how can you grow if you're supposed to be patient and the cards already told you you needed love to grow! Let's see if we can't sort it out.

I was gonna use Linestrider but as I was typing the spread I got the feeling I should use Mermaids. So I went with my gut. I'll use Linestrider for any clarification.

Spread: Patience and Love? Patience or Love? Cali's dilemma. 

1. Why the message of patience?
2. How long must she be patient? Is there something she has to achieve before she can seek love out?
3. How will love help her grow?
4. Which parts of love are her readings telling her she needs?
5. Which parts of love are unnecessary or will get in the way of her growth?
6. & 7. How can she gain what she needs to break this loop?
  1. Adrift - You've spent too long seeking, going out of your way to force things, that you have missed the path, the flow you are meant to be with. Surrender to the situation and let things lead you to where they -not you- wish to go. I know this card really goes along with the message of patience, but this has more of as aspect of fate, of the universe drawing you to where you need to go. 
  2. Time out - Solitude and contemplation - hahhhhhh well. Lovely. Thanks cards. Okay. Take a step back, and examine what it is about love or a relationship that makes you want it so badly. Is it that you want a wife, suburban house and kids playing in the front lawn? Is it that you want someone to stay up all night with just talking about you uh, feelings? Are you horny and you just want to get it on? Are you looking for someone to take charge of you or your life so you can just fall in line? Look deeply at what you want and why you want it. Maybe you want all those things but one of them speaks a little louder to you than the others. Maybe what you really want from a relationship isn't there. Try to find that #1 thing for you and ask yourself, why? 
  3. Endurance - Your path to love has been a long journey, fraught with setbacks and letdowns. And yet, you still try. You haven't given up. Perhaps this challenge is here to teach you just how formidable you really are. Maybe the lesson here is that you aren't a quitter, you aren't weak, you keep trying when the world goes against you. Is there anything else in your life that could have taught you this lesson?
  4. Falling in Love - Well that's pretty self explanatory. The part where you give yourself whole-heartedly to someone else, letting go of the control you fought all your life to gain. Falling in love swallows you -YOU, Cali the baker, witch, pagan, lesbian, soul- and puts another person at the forefront of every thought, action, moment. This all-consuming fire is the thing the cards have been telling you you need. 
  5. Reflections - I think this goes along with losing yourself in another person. The cards don't want you to stop and look at the relationship, or to look at who you are once you get to this point. 
  6. & 7. Yearning & Atlantis + 6 of Wands --- I'm pretty sure these together are talking about being in a relationship with someone... Yearning- wanting someone, desiring them, tearing yourself up because you can't be close... coupled with Atlantis & 6oW which both more or less mean victory. So like, a successful longing?
So the overall takeaway I get from this is that only by totally releasing control and direction in your life will you find someone who becomes more important to you than your own life. Whew! That was an intense one!

So now I get a question... What about me needs to change?

 [personal profile] kirarose_10 said: "How can I motivate myself so I can focus on school work instead of lounging around?"

I simply drew three cards while thinking, "What are three things that can help motivate Rishi?"

0-Beginnings - Tara
Try to give yourself some kind of fresh start. Clear your mind and try to approach your schoolwork as if for the first time. Also try to remember what it is that you wanted to get from your schooling in the first place.

4 of Pentacles
Use your talents; know that you have what it takes to do whatever it is you need to accomplish. Also count your blessings, know how lucky you are to be receiving the education that you are.

Realize the school work takes a long time, the big projects take time and effort and although it may seem tedious the patience and hardworking will pay off in the end.

Hope this helps. Also I think Jessica should ask the next question when she's ready to put up her version of my question. I don't really know what to ask and I will have had both of you answer a question for me so I think it works out better that way.

Cali- Love

[personal profile] calimon1991 says "What can I do about my stupid love dilemma?

I used my Dreamer's Journal deck for this reading.

Why tarot continues to say you need to find love?

Queen of Wands- Being in a relationship may help you to express your creativity, be more outgoing, and lead an accomplished life.  You'll be confident and come into your own.

Why tarot advice you to wait for love?

Knight of Cups- Right now, you are too much a romantic.  You may be daydreaming and building your expectations too high, and even if you met someone, you are too shy to ask them out.

What you can do to overcome this dilemma?

IX Hermit- You need to withdraw from the idea of love or romance, and instead look into yourself.  Build a relationship with yourself so that you can find peace, joy, and inner balance even when you are alone. This will help build your confidence which will help when seeking love.

What can you do while you are waiting?

2 of Swords- You have a choice to make (which as far as I can tell may be to follow the advice of tarot or disregard it and follow your wishes instead). You may be blinding yourself from making a decision by focusing on emotions, when you should be looking at the situation rationally.

I hope this helps, even though I don't think it's what you want to hear. Also, I am going to try to get back into the grove of tarot, so I'll be helping to read here when I can.  So, I'll ask a question, I guess.  How can I motivate myself so I can focus on my school work instead of lounging around?

  [personal profile] kristyjnh said "...why am I so despondent lately?

The reason for the despondency?
Awareness (VII-The Chariot)
Going by The Chariot you may be feeling despondent because of movement.  A lot happened to you last month and that took a lot out of you.  Also moving forward in life - also spiritually if I'm taking "Awareness" into account.  Potentially moving forward too quickly without taking the proper time to shield yourself and rest when needed.

What can you do to cure yourself of these despondent feelings?
The Outsider (5 of Earth) and I Am Beginning
Take yourself out of things for a while, you may feel left out, but the rest is important and needed.  Also when you are ready to jump back into things try approaching things from a new angle, a fresh start.

Hope this helps!  Sorry you're feeling despondent.

My question:
What can I do about my stupid love dilemma? (for those who don't know -  tarot keeps saying that love is something I really need to focus on right now and basically that it will make every aspect of my life better, but then when I ask for advice it tells me to be patient... Cartomancy, why you gotta be like that?)

[personal profile] calimon1991  Here's my question:
What is my next step?
So my new Oracle came today so I thought I would hop on here and do this because it's a pretty simple question... I went with a "do this, not this" format.
Your next step -
Seek Beauty: Create moments you can remember.  Do things for the experience - no strings, no expectations, nothing hinging on it. Do do things to 'get' somewhere. Enjoy the beautiful world around you. 
This might go along with your patience message - are you sacrificing the "now" by putting too much on hopes for the future?
The direction you should not go - 
Bountiful Harvest: I think this goes along with the message above - now isn't the time to create tangible results or focus on goals - just enjoy the ride. (Also this card mentions accessing the abundance in your life right now and I think I remember you pulling an abundance card today but I can't remember the context... So abundance... no-no?)
Hope that helps and my question is... uhhh...
What changed me? (Both recent and childhood if you like). Or maybe why do I feel so despondent lately (that might be a good one for Osho Zen). Whichever you want to read.

  [personal profile] kristyjnh said: "Should I just go for it?"

1) Outcome of "going for it:"
Rx 25 - love that you are different
- You conform.  There is a dissonance between the person you become - or at least the image your portray - and who you really are.  You may not like the person that you become.  You may feel rejected or like an outcast.  "You will never be who others expect you to be.  You can only be the unique individual you are meant to be." - from the book.

2) Out come of not "going for it:"
49 - we are all connected
- You will come into your own at your own pace. You don't have to do what ever it is you think you need to do in order to be accepted.  You will find your place in everything without "going for it."

3) General advice
31 - observe in silence
- Wait it out, don't make a move right away. Sense the mood and make sure to carefully think about things before you make a decision.

I had a hard time wording/figuring out how to say some things because I'm not sure what it is you are considering.  I hope that this is at least a little helpful... Anyway...

Here's my question:
What is my next step?

[personal profile] kristyjnh
[personal profile] calimon1991 :  Lets go vague:


What am I doing?

What should I be doing?

What shouldn't I be doing?

1. The Maiden - You're embracing your inner girl, acting out your youth and innocence. You're reaching back into your girlhood (or grabbing hold of girlhood you missed out on). There's youth and innocence and joy.

2. X of Water - Living in the present, cutting out disruptive influences, letting go of past emotions and being balanced emotionally. Basically, this card says you -your emotions, your demeanor- is ruled by the past. Things that happened. Things you felt. Your action should be leaving the past behind and letting yourself change. Spend a few days looking at how you feel, why you feel that way, and how you react to things. Now is your chance to change and grow for the better.

3. III of Air - Learning, book-study. Now is not the time to focus on gaining new knowledge. Introspect, and refine the things you already know.

My question:

Should I just go for it?

[personal profile] kirarose_10 said: "I guess I'm up to bat. My question is how can I be more Sword-like?"

 I tried a little Shufflemancy to help answer and got…
Journey To The Past - Anastasia  
So some part of you used to be a sword. Maybe do a little digging to find out what and try to tap into that part of yourself.
1) Qualities/aspects you already have - 
-- 10 of Cups - Your sword comes out when your with family. Maybe you're less afraid to be critical or to speak your mind at home.
2) Qualities/aspects to work on that will serve you best - 
-- 2 of Pentacles - Be flexible. Spontaneous. Put yourself in new situations and go with the flow.
3) Why you would want to be more Sword-y - 
-- 10 of Swords - This card was very insistent that it was the right card for this position. What I'm getting is fear. Something about fear. Being more sword-like will force you be a bit less timid, a bit more confident. You don't have to do a personality overhaul or change who you are at your core, just a little about how you communicate and a little about how you think.
4) Most important action to take - 
-- 3 of Cups - Make friends. Not easy, I know. I'm terrible at it. But this will give you a chance to be around new people, people who don't know the old you. It's a chance to reinvent yourself. Maybe over drinks since the girls on the card are all holding chalices. 
5) Additional advice - 
-- 10 of Wands - This isn't a change that has to be made instantly or all at once. Keep it small, keep it manageable. Decide Sunday night  "I'm going to strike up conversation with 2 strangers this week" or "This week I'll investigate that anime club". Stick to the resolutions you make.Changing core aspects of yourself is going to be an uphill battle.
Jumper - 
-- 3 of Wands - Focus on the future. What will you have to be, what will you have to learn to be able to move forward to the point you aim to get to? Does your future career require you be skilled verbally? Authoritative? Able to give (constructive) criticisms? Now's the time to start working on it.

So I'm gonna ask... What can I do to keep my poltergeist from popping up again? Alternatively, should I try to learn to harness it, control it? Is this my psychic gift or just a result of stress? Heeeellllllp me tarot friends
