"Doggie Made Me Drop S'getti!"

Hello there!

Hope you had a fine weekend -- we had a little rain Saturday (was much welcome!), but the rest of the weekend was nice and bright.  Not as hot as you'd expect in Houston this time of year, either.

Didn't get out and do much -- spent most of the time cleaning up around the house.  Heading to the beach in a couple of weeks, so trying to get ahead of the mess curve. 

Made a major boo-boo last weekend.  Was spreading some lawn fertilizer -- had some left over, so I sprinkled it in the vegetable garden.  Bad move!  All my tomato plants died!  Oh well, you learn ...

BTW -- someone had mentioned I should put a Facebook "like" button on this page -- I already had one, but I think it was hidden because of it's location.  I just moved it to the top part of the right-hand column.  I'd be grateful if you'd give it a "like" or a "share"!

Let's take a look at our reading this week.  We'll start with the Two of Pentacles.



I love the Robin Wood version of this card -- it not only has the young man juggling ... he's standing on a tightrope while he's doing it!

Want to know how he feels?  Well, suppose you've got something in the microwave -- you're watching it because you know it's going to boil over in the next 10 seconds or so.  Suddenly the phone rings -- you grab it and it's your sister who starts off on a long story.  While this is going on, the dogs start barking and chasing the cat around the table; they knock over the garbage can.  You notice the dishwasher is leaking sudsy water about this time.  Your three-year old walks into the kitchen and announces "Doggie make me drop spaghetti on floor!"   Oh yeah, the doorbell starts ringing, too.

That's pretty much a Two of Pentacles experience -- it's those times where you're pulled in many directions ... or when you're trying to juggle and tightrope walk at the same time!

Happens to all of us -- although it does sometimes feel like the universe has decided you're going to get a double dose!

It's natural -- don't take it personal!  Don't get discouraged when your productivity suffers -- of course it's going to suffer!  All you can do is hold tight and try and weather the storm -- it will get better.  Prioritize -- deal with the important things, delegate what you can, stall on the rest and handle them later.

Whew!  I'm tired thinking about it -- what can we keep in mind to help us through these patches?

How about The Chariot?



I always think of Julius Caesar when I pull The Chariot in a reading.  Caesar was laser-focused on his goals -- he had the will to make them happen.  I'm sure he had Two of Pentacles moments like the rest of us -- but he didn't let them distract him from what he wanted to achieve.  He used his will-power to stay on course.

And that's what we should do -- don't let the Two of Pentacles become bigger than it really is.  Remember your goals -- and keep your focus directed on achieving those goals.

That's about it -- hope you have a great week!  Talk to you again in a few days ...
