Tarot Tuesday: Support

playshopbanner

Morning Revolutionaries!

We had such an amazing weekend at Catalyst Con West having “exceptional conversations about sexuality.” We learned some new things, engaged in conversations about things we’d been contemplating ourselves, explored who we are trying to reach from this little corner of the universe and just what the best way is to reach each other!

We’ve been really lucky to have been able to have done quite a bit of “conferencing” this summer. Sure, our hearts were a little broken that we didn’t make it out to Amorous Revolt last month, but between Gender Spectrum, Gender Odyssey, and Catalyst Con we really can’t complain. Going to such a smattering of conferences, these little intentional bubbles of community conversation, got us thinking about how important format/structure are in our offerings.

We may want to share information but if we don’t know how to get it to those we’re trying to reach it doesn’t get anywhere. We may want to make space for conversation but if we can’t build cultures of safety and openness they aren’t going to happen. We may want to offer support to others around us but if we’re not mindful of how we do so we may not be helpful.

Support

This spread is to shed some light on how to offer intentional and appropriate support to others. It reminds you that you sit at the base of any support you offer, and, therefore, that energy towards your own self-care is a worthy act. Lastly, it checks in with the “heart of the matter” and any underlying reminders or intention informing our desire to support others that we might not be aware of on the surface.

Shuffle your deck as you contemplate the concept and function of support. When finished, cut your deck for as many people or groups you are drawing a card for including yourself (for example: if you want to draw for two others you will cut three times all together). Think about a person or group during each cut and then re-stack your deck. Set out your cards as shown in the diagram. Your last “heart of the matter” card can be the last card that you draw or you can flip over your deck and take the bottom card.

I played a bit with this spread and this is what I got. My heart warmed as I flipped The Star card as my heart of the matter. I absentmindedly ran my finger over the tattoo in the crease of my right elbow that holds the words: “The Star Awaits” underneath a nod to “Disaster” or “The Tower.”

In a time when I know I need to put consciousness to support the individual changes I’m experiencing as well as honoring my desperate desire to support those I love around me in ways that make sense to them– the star card reminds me to have “hope and peace of mind.” The Wild Unknown interpretation offers the reassurance:

“Even though you can’t find concrete answers to life’s many questions up there in the sky, you can’t help but feel comforted and renewed. Such is the energy of the star card. It is not about actions or situations, it’s simply about connecting to the parts of you that feel hopeful and serene.” 

When I sit in places of hopeful serenity it suddenly becomes clear where I can support others, whether they need something functional or just for me to be nearby energetically, it clears up what part of support I’m truly offering for them and what parts are about my own need to ease anxiety through my inclination for service.

Support is an animal of delicate constitution in need of very specific care taking. This spread is an offering to this important healing but complicated practice.

In support and service,

Check it out if you can or put it on your roadtrip wishlist!
  • Some music and art love!

RECOMMENDATIONS

Recommendation this week… don’t take yourselves or this healing process to seriously. Honor it because it’s fucking courageous work, but know that as long as you get the sentiment, the way you get there doesn’t matter.

Letting the bullshit float away,

Happy Friday everyone!

How are your, beautifully broken and thriving spirits doing as we close another week? We’ve been challenging ourselves to confront the balance between knowing when to stay still and when it’s time to lean into movement. We’ve been meditating on what is needed to wash away what is keeping us from clarity.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Figure out what gets you clear and grounded. We’ve been spending some extra play time in Ojai recently. A little camping therapy and showering in a waterfall on a summer morning does seem to cure all wounds.

Morning, loves! How goes it?

We’ve been busy traipsing back and forth to the Bay to hang with some of the coolest middle schoolers around. Seriously…

IMG_0134

Finally at a place where most of have to own the title of “adult,” it’s good practice to surrender to how epically un-cool you are in the midst of 11-13 year old gender rebels. I plan to bow my tarnished unicorn horn and step back gracefully. It’s good self-care to let some of the whippersnappers “eat genders for breakfast!”

So we’re cuddling up, slowing down, catching some outdoor time, and generally honoring our self-care.

What is your favorite form of self-care? What self-care is always accessible to you? Have any tips for the rest of us?

Morning, REVOLUTIONARIES! We’ve been meditating on what it means to stand our ground…

{Image Credit: http://bit.ly/1GOHrSj}
{Image Credit: http://bit.ly/1GOHrSj}

We’ve had some wonderful community connections recently. We’ve been networking with one another, checking in with past contacts, and reaching out to folks that have hovered nearby but that we’ve never actually had a reason to interact with.

Reaching out to folks and finding connection has given us this amazing sense of abundance in community. It’s made us think about all those times it felt like we weren’t being seen and all those times when it felt like as hard as we looked we couldn’t find reflection anywhere. The hardest thing it brought up was memories of those moments that made us question who we (inherently) are… the moments when it seemed like it would be easier to chop off our magical queer unicorn horns and make our way amongst the ponies. It’s a sad thought that we could have changed course, toned down our colors, and hidden ourselves so well that other unicorns might not recognize us when they ran into us!

So set your most fierce stance, hand on hip, don your most epic fucking flannel, tallest heels, and most dapper bow tie, and raise your eyebrow challengingly over the top of your sunglasses at a world that would have you be any different!

Oh, and, huzzah for marriage equality! There’s still a lot more to do but let’s congratulate the country for getting it’s shit together and continue to stand our ground. No wait….

…let’s fucking runway stomp our path to get there!

RECOMMENDATIONS

For all of our dirty hippy healing talk, many of us this way are also admittedly smitten with queer fashion. Partly, because our queer community is adorable and perfect but also because outward expressions of our internal identities is a powerful act! For a community that struggles with being told we’re not who we are, shouldn’t be addressed the way want, can’t love the way we do, and sometimes have difficulty seeing and being seen– presentation and performance can offer a much needed sense of agency! Here are some fun places on the interwebs that celebrate this:
