Tunes n' Tarot


Welcome to another Tunes n' Tarot! Before I get into this week's card, I want to gage interest in having a virtual JITH Holiday party. If you are interested, let me know which days and times work best for you. Since we have people across a variety of time zones, I'm thinking early evening EST so it's mid-afternoon out west. I'm also aware that we have a bunch of people who only post on weekdays and I want to include them as well, so I'm open to your thoughts.

Ok, on to the Six of Balls - Fastball. The basic of every pitcher's arsenal. Speed and precisions are the marks of a good fastball and so this card is about mental clarity, the ability to cut through the noise and go straight to the heart of the matter - throwing a strike.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What have I finally come to see clearly?
  • What do I need to deal with more directly?
  • What am I ready to move beyond?
  • Where am I moving quickly, or where do I need to?
  • What do I tend to pay attention to?
  • What do I tend to ignore?
  • Am I applying my best thinking?
  • What difficulty have I felt confused by?
  • What attitude, habit, or situation have I felt stuck in?
As for tunage, I've been supporting my friend Solomon Douglas through Patreon so he can continue to make music while taking care of his sick father on the West Coast. He's been recording a song a week, a pretty eclectic mix, and this is the most eclectic one of all:
