Tarot Tuesday: The Big Reveal for March 27, 2018

If it's Tuesday, it's time to hone our intuition! If you haven't done so on the Facebook page, please take a moment now to ground yourself, and choose one card above that speaks to you. Once you have it in your mind (don't overthink this!), look below for the corresponding card.  Ready? Let's do this!

Card 1: Death

Venetian Carnival Tarot

If you've not been exposed much to the tarot, your first thought is that this means someone is going to die. Death does not necessarily, or even usually, indicate physical death. This card simply indicates transformation and change. This is definitely a time of deep transformation, likely to be both internally and externally, in your life.

Situations, things, and people that you have counted on or gotten used to, may no longer be available to you in quite the same way as they once were. This transition can be very difficult for some people. The change though, is nearly always needed. The more accepting you can be of change of any description during this time the better. Simply put, the less you try to control what is underway, the more comfortable this time will be for you.

Often, what you need to let go of is some sort of self-limiting belief or attitude. Sometimes, we just can't see how our attitudes are hurting us, and when that is true this time period can be a wake-up call. The energy of this time is not just change or destruction; it is change or destruction, followed by renewal. Even though one door may have closed for you, another is opening. The change is coming whether you want it or not so pluck up your courage and step through the door. You need this!

Card 2: Temperance

Sun and Moon Tarot
Temperance is a card about balance 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 your relationships are likely to be going quite well, you may need to look at your deeper personal issues to see if or how these are standing in your way. And if they are, it's time to work through, 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.

This card is extremely helpful if you are going through a divorce and custody battle. You can feel confident that, moving forward, things will be equitable despite past disagreements. We often cling to our more extreme positions out of a fear of what life will be like were we to move toward the mainstream. Temperance insists that in abandoning extremism, you will actually be happier, will not miss the past at all, and may find a greater degree of acceptance for who you are and what you believe. The stubborn side of your character will be replaced with tolerance when Temperance appears in the present position.

Card #3: 9 of Wands

The Wild Unknown Tarot

When you are hanging in there, persevering under pressure and holding on despite the forces pulling at the other end of your rope, expect the Nine of Wands to appear in your Tarot reading. This card is either a welcome sign that you are truly holding your own in a long-term project or that you are needlessly hanging on to a point of view that is past its time.

When this card is in the present position, it is an acknowledgment that you are in the middle of a great struggle. You might not realize that your efforts are out of the ordinary. Your battle may seem so obviously the right thing to do, that you do not realize how great and against the odds it truly is. Whether it is raising a child with learning disabilities or working hard to finish your master's thesis, you really have to be persistent in what you do to manifest the Nine of Wands in the present position.

Don't let the things you are worried about overwhelm you. Take it one day at a time, one hour at a time, if you must. At least some of your worries will very likely turn out to be imaginary. Get very specific on what you are afraid of and pick it apart. What is the true likelihood of the worry actually happening? Comfort yourself, and if you need help, don't hesitate to ask for it. Asking for help is the mark of a strong person.

Card #4: The Wheel of Fortune

Ansata Tarot

Do things in your life suddenly seem to be moving as if guided by some destiny? Are you at a critical turning point in life or in a relationship? Are you aware that every action taken could result in major changes? Is the sense that you are being swept up in the tide of events and that every movement you make only makes the changes all the more irreversible? Could you ever have predicted the shocking path that recent events have taken?

The Wheel of Fortune in the present is perhaps the most momentous placement of any one card in any position in a Tarot reading. Get ready for fate to smile on you and transform the circumstances of your life into a manifestation of your self-awareness. This is a great card to receive when you have reached a level of knowing yourself well enough to spot the times you are letting yourself down. If you have been taking responsibility for your actions lately, this card in this position reinforces the power that comes with owning your decisions.

This card always reminds us that "this too shall pass." Whether that's good times or bad times, it passes. If suddenly you find yourself "sitting on top of the world," keep your perspective, as that too, like everything else, changes. Live in the now, count your blessings, and just realize that much of life is outside of your control, but that even that is okay. Roll with any changes, and be grateful for all that makes you happy in life.
