Tarot Tuesday: February 20, 2018

/ Tuesday, February 20, 2018
It's Tarot Tuesday. Are you ready to hone your intuition this week? Remember, ground yourself. Take some deep breaths, close your eyes for a moment. Open them. Now choose the card number above that speaks most to you. Remember, choose only one. This helps you really hone in on your intuition. 


Card #1: The 2 of Wands


Fenestra Tarot Deck

When this card is in the present position, you are feeling on top of the world and in charge. There is a strong possibility that you were recently given some new level of authority and you are embracing this as a sign of success. At its weakest, the Two of Wands here means that you can feel emboldened to raise your voice in objection to wrongs that you see. 

You're about to fit things together in new or unusual ways. Work is about to get a lot smoother, and if you're looking for employment, you are about to find the right fit. Don't let anyone knock you off your stride. You're more together and balanced than you might realize.



Card #2: The 7 of Cups


Connolly Tarot Deck
The 7 of Cups is a card about choices. It often indicates confusion and can even also point to disorganization and too much going on. Are you feeling a little frazzled? Perhaps too many things are coming at you at once?

In general. this card points to a need to narrow your focus. When it appears, you are probably trying to do too much, and doing most of it not very well. Choose just a few of the myriad things that are on your plate, and work through these items one by one, carefully. You may be feeling overwhelmed. Remember that you can control at least in some areas, how much you are trying to take on. The old question, "How do you eat an elephant?" is answered with, "One bite at a time."



Card #3: The Hanged Man


The Gilded Tarot
The Hanged Man generally shows that you are at a crossroads - one with only two options i.e. in or out, up or down, yes or no. You may find yourself very much wanting to do "something" but having no idea what it is or how to do it. If that happens, that's a clear sign that you should stop, relax, and look at ways that you might need to let go of attempts to control life/situations/people/things.

It's possible that there is an outdated attitude or wish from which you need to let go. Any sacrifice that you make will open up your life to something even more positive than what you "let go of." All in all this should be a thoughtful, reflective time, particularly if you are willing to look at if or how you might best serve your own interests by being willing to change.

Remember, the word sacrifice means, "to make sacred." Odin hung himself on a tree to obtain the runic wisdom. Let go, and trust yourself. You know exactly what you need to do.


Card #4: The King of Pentacles


Golden Botticelli Tarot

Have things stabilized recently? Are you enjoying the first stages of a new commitment that seems to be working out? Are others looking to you as a source of support and encouragement? Have you gotten through a series of tests, exams or obstacles recently and are more established than ever before? When you reach a plateau in life that confirms a feeling of competence and security in your outlook, expect the King of Pentacles to appear in your Tarot reading.

When this card is in the present position you are bound to be feeling better about things.  Peace and serenity are on their way, if they are not already core components of your current existence. The King of Pentacles in this position offers you a unique opportunity to take stock of where you have been and what you want to do with your life.

When you have received the King of Pentacles in your reading you have a resourceful and dependable spirit. You are watchful with good instincts and you are a good leader. You tend to be ruled by the drive for stability and comfort, and this card is representative of a father and a provider kind of energy. Enjoy this period of time!

It's that time of the week where we hone our intuitive skills! Are you ready? Ground yourself. Close your eyes, relax, take a few deep breaths. Then, open them, and choose the card above that most speaks to you. Please choose only ONE card. By choosing more than one, you're hedging your bets more than using your intuition. Once you've chosen your card, see below for the reveal.



Card 1: The Hermit


The Vanessa Tarot

The Hermit is one of the most spiritual and mysterious cards in the deck. his card indicates spirituality even if you are an atheist. It's in whatever sense the word "spirit" makes sense to you, even if for you "spirit" equates to "emotion." 

You may be in the frame of mind that you need some time alone - take it. Even if it's just a five minute walk outside so that you can clear your head. This is also very much a card about "trying very hard to do the right thing." Just make sure that "doing the right thing" includes doing what is right for you personally, and not just worrying about the wants and needs of others.


Card #2:  The Nine of Swords


The Witches' Tarot
This card is often about unnecessary worry. You will need to guard against a feeling of anxiety. If you are feeling anxious, take a good look at whether or not any of that is under your own power or control, or if other things or people in your life are contributing to this anxiety. If it is the latter, take a good look at that, and see whether or not something can be changed to make it more workable for you. 

This card is a clear sign that you need to slow down your rocketing brain and stress levels. If you can do it on your own, meditation will bring you enormous benefits. If you don't have any idea how to begin, read a good book or take a class. Search out the Buddhist concept of the monkey mind. Learn to silence the chatter, and you'll find yourself feeling much more grounded and connected.

There's something about this time period that can cause people to feel like their life should be, in some way, "more" or "bigger" than it is. Try to take comfort and joy in the ordinary things. That's where the beauty lies.


Card #3: The Ace of Swords


Sun and Moon Tarot
The Ace of Swords can indicate a new beginning of some sort in your life, possibly on several fronts. Sometimes this new beginning can be started by a separation of some kind - from a relationship, or from a job situation. Know that as anxiety-producing as such a new beginning can sometimes be, that underneath it all is good, beneficial energy that is getting you where you want to go.

This card calls on us to not be afraid to make a leap if it's in our best interests. In short, bravery is called for. As the old adage says, "feel the fear and do it anyway." You have a good idea already of what must be done. The hard part is the doing of it. Start today!




Card #4: The Knight of Pentacles


Faerie Tarot by Nathalie Hertz

The Knight of Pentacles points to messages, often with regard to money and finance. You are likely to finally receive news that you've been waiting on, and this news is likely to be good. This Knight is a very practical card. The news in question is unlikely to be that you've won the lottery, but more like you've earned something here (could even be in regard to tax refunds). It could also mean an inheritance is coming.

The Knight tells us to pay attention to the mundane and normal parts of our lives. A wise man once said,  "Take care of the little things, and the big things will all fall into place." The Knight of  Pentacles asks you to look at how you are handling your affairs, and is a grounding influence.

In the spiritual sense, you may find yourself suddenly overwhelmed for no obvious reason. Try to break down these feelings into manageable chunks, there is no need for you to tackle your whole life at one sitting. You are in the midst of spiritual change when this happens. Go with it, and explore new ways of seeing things.

It's Tarot Tuesday! Today, we take a few moments to hone our intuition. If you haven't done so on the Facebook page, please take a moment to center yourself, take a few deep breaths, relax, and then choose the card above that speaks to you the most. When you're ready, let's look at the reveal:


Card 1: The 2 of Wands


The Witches' Tarot
Are you feeling in charge? Is your sense of self-empowerment so thorough that you feel like taking a big risk? Did you recently confront a tense task head-on? Have you had some recent successes that have increased your confidence? Can you brag, "I'm doing it my way"? This card is confirmation that you are on a winning streak that is based on a belief in yourself and will continue as long as your original approach continues to solve problems for you and those around you.

Two is the number of balance, choices, and togetherness. Wands is the suit of fire, passion, and action.  Do you have a big choice to make between two options? Weigh your options carefully, but balance that with your intuition.


Card #2: The Ace of Wands

Dark Fairytale Tarot
Aces of any suit usually indicate new beginnings - generally very positive ones. Wands are in the realm of accomplishment and are often generally related to work/career.  If you are looking for a new position when the Ace of wands appears, know that something new and very positive is likely to be headed your way soon. Be bold and ask for what you want/need in the work/career arena. You are likely to be more successful than you'd dream possible.

The Wand is full of power and directs the energy where to go. Being that you are likely dealing with fiery energy in your life right now, it is a good time to start making plans for the future that require action or motivation on your part. With the surge of fire behind you take action and charge forth, completing aspects of your life that you have left unattended until now. Focus your energies on growth and renewal or being influential. Do not waste this energy as it does not come around all that often. It’s like a surge of energy being blasted into your life and can leave you feeling glorious or almost as if you can take on the world.


Card #3: The 9 of Swords

Prisma Visions Tarot

You will need to guard against a feeling of anxiety. If you are feeling anxious, take a good look at whether or not any of that is under your own power or control (and thus, you could lessen it) or if other things or people in your life are contributing to this anxiety. If it is the latter, take a good look at that, and see whether or not something in the relationship can be changed to make it more workable for you. There's something about this time period that can cause people to feel like their life should be, in some way, "more" or "bigger" than it is. Try to take comfort and joy in the ordinary things. That's where the beauty is.

The “scary” Tarot cards are meant to be red flags—but usually don’t mean something terrible is going to happen. If we are willing to let go of fear, and really delve into what the card means in our own lives, then these red flags can lead to growth and change—and, perhaps best of all, a letting go of worry, which is simply a conjured thought, based on something that might happen.

It's time to take a deep breath, relax, and know that you have the power within you to alter your course at anytime. It's truly all going to be okay.


Card #4: The 10 of Cups

Mary-El Tarot
In general, the 10 of Cups speaks of a happy family life, (even if you are single,) and to general well being that goes beyond you yourself to include those that you are most concerned about - parents, siblings, children, etc. Being spiritually fulfilled is also part of the picture here.

This card represents a recent breakthrough. You may be in love at the moment of the reading or falling in love with someone. This card carries emotional impact, so there is some wonderful sentiment permeating your life and your world at present.

Pay attention to your own intuition at this time, be spontaneous, listen to the beat of your heart, and you will have the fulfillment that you desire and a deep connection to emotional satisfaction. At this time, you begin to feel the actualization of your personal hopes and dreams. Suddenly, all of the doors are open for you; the world is full of YES. Enjoy! You've earned it!

Hello again, my beautiful wildlings! Are you ready for your weekly intuition exercise? If you haven't already done so on the Facebook page, take a moment to ground yourself. Deep breaths. Relax. Now, look at the picture above. Which one of these cards speaks to you today?  Don't overthink it. Just go with your "gut."  Are you ready for the big reveal?  Then, let's get to it!


Card #1: The 7 of Cups


Faerie Tarot by Nathalie Hertz

Feeling a little stressed right now? Are you having a "Calgon! Take-me-away" moment? The 7 of Cups is a card about choices. It often indicates confusion and can even also point to disorganization and too much going on. 


In general, this card points to a need to narrow your focus. When it appears, you are probably trying to do too much, and feeling like you aren't doing any of it well. Choose just a few of the myriad things that are on your plate, and work through these items one by one, carefully. You may be feeling overwhelmed. Remember that you can control at least in some areas, how much you are trying to take on.

Visualize your most important goals and desires being met. Use affirmations and/or mapping exercises to help bring your goals to fruition. Keep an upbeat attitude. If you need help doing so, reach out for it. There are plenty of helpful influences available to you. Remember, these feelings of being overwhelmed can be summed up in, "this too, shall pass."





Card # 2: The 9 of Pentacles


Fenestra Tarot
The 9 of Pentacles is one of the most uplifting and encouraging omens in the suit. This can mean that your financial worries are over for a while, and that things in general will be going better than you thought possible. Enjoy this good energy, and share your wealth and happiness with others.

The 9 of Pentacles points to happiness and success. This is on both the mundane and the inner realms. You will have a great deal to be proud of and hopeful about. Expect the best to happen. You'll be in the position to help those less fortunate than yourself. Pay attention not only to your material abundance but also to your spirituality.

Your self-esteem is possibly higher than it has ever been, which is a very good thing. You are in the position now to mentor others and to share the spiritual insights that you have accumulated. Spread the word, and share your happiness!





Card 3: Knight of Cups



Tarot of Dreams
 The Knight of Cups like most if not all of the Cups suit, is an optimistic card to see in a reading. Knights are considered the messengers of the Tarot. This brings good news to you today. 

In general, the Knight of Cups tells you that things are going well. You are likely to be feeling charged up and ready for action. This card often means that good news (particularly in the realm of matters of the heart) is likely to be headed your way soon.

The Knight often means that you will soon receive a message from spirit (which could come from a living person) that will open up new ways of looking at things for you. Pay attention to things that seem like coincidence. These are often the way that spirit reaches us.





Card #4: The Emperor



The China Tarot

When The Emperor is in the present position, you have the rule of law before you to guide you on your journey. This card is especially strong in the present position as it gives you an absolute confidence to move toward a goal. 

This can also represent the influence of another person in your life right now. Are you so enamored of a new friend or lover that you have started following the advice and lifestyle habits of him or her? Have you discovered a new hero in the arts whose work has expanded your consciousness to the point that it is hard to relate to people who have not had a similar reaction to this person's artistic output? 

Is there a new teacher in your life who has changed the way you think? Perhaps a new person at work is transforming the way you approach your on-the-job goals. The theme running through all of these possibilities is that one way of seeing the world is coming to dominate the way you experience life.
Be sure to take time out for yourself in order to honor your need for spiritual growth. Logic can lead you to the spirit, if you allow this, and if you don't get too stuck in your logical self. Meditation, (which requires great discipline) will come easier for you now if you make the time and effort.

It's Tarot Tuesday! If you haven't been to the Facebook page, please take a moment to review the picture above. Deep breath, relax... now, select the card that most speaks to you. This weekly exercise is designed to help you hone your own intuition.

Ready? Let's take a look at the reveal:


Card 1:  The Three of Wands


The Gilded Tarot

The Three of Wands usually refers to finances and work. If you can bring the fullness of your creativity and inventiveness to the table, then the Three of Wands brings good news. You are about to enter a time where your potential for productivity and accomplishment is very favorable. Keep your eyes open for new career opportunities and your mind open to new possibilities. The rewards these new opportunities bring, however, will only come in the fullness of time. You will need to be patient and stick around for the long haul. Also, look for new allies, as any new undertakings will be most successful if undertaken as partnerships.

You have a lot to be proud of regarding your work performance, even if you haven't quite seen the rewards you would expect from this yet. If you're looking for work, you will soon find a position that is going to be better than you expected. Hold your head up high and know that you are bringing a lot to the table.  Things are looking up financially. Your hard work is already in the process of being rewarded whether you see evidence of this yet or not.



Card 2: The High Priestess


The Sun and Moon Tarot


The High Priestess is wholeheartedly confident in her knowledge and power. There is no question of source or validity - her knowledge simply "is." She represents pure spirituality achieved through perfect balance.  She is aware of the motions of nature, the movement of spiritual matters, and she has acute awareness of the stirrings of the mind. She is vitally tapped into the flow of ancient knowledge. She instinctively understands the inner-workings and connections between nature, philosophy, science and religion.

Today's advice is to ask yourself the following questions:

Am I listening to my inner voice?
What secrets are being kept from me?
Am I connected with my higher power?
What secrets am I keeping from others, and why?
How can I more clearly understand my life and purpose?

Take some time to simply be.. if you can get out in nature today, please do. If not, then create a "nature space" for yourself with some plants, a fountain, stones, etc...  you are really feeling the need to connect to "Spirit" today. Go with your instincts. You know what you need.






Card 3: The Three of Pentacles


The Witches Tarot


When the Three of Pentacles appears, think excellence, mastery, satisfaction, and success. If you can maintain a clear sense of purpose over the coming months, you are well positioned to see you hard work get the recognition it deserves. It is not guaranteed, but if you maintain your own pace, and it may tax your interpersonal skills, as you will need to rely and trust on others for the best outcome. That outcome will be worth your determination, however, not only providing material reward, but leading to a sense of lasting accomplishment.

The Three of Pentacles also promotes collaboration and working as a team, just like the apprentice and the architects. Even though they come from different backgrounds and possess different skills and levels of expertise, they are able to work on one project together and achieve great results. They are able to get the job done. Don't be afraid to take the initiative and create your team.





Card 4: Temperance



Tarot of Dreams


Temperance is a card about balance, in many ways, and relationships of all kinds. Friendships, family, romantic partnerships, and work partnerships all need your attention. This is also a card about alchemy or mixing and matching. You may have to try several approaches to things before you find what is truly right for you.

Although in general all your relationships are likely to be going quite well, you may need to look at your deeper personal issues and see if or how these are standing in your way. And if they are, how to work through them and integrate them. The idea now is to do what it takes to find balance, in yourself, in your relationships, and with your goals and aspirations. Balance and moderation is the key.
