Tarot Tuesday: February 13, 2018

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.

How did you do? Are you finding this is getting easier? Did you run into a challenge with this one?
