Today’s card is from the Shapeshifter Tarot and is:
6 of Wands – Victory –
Have you noticed recently that it has seemed as though there was some sort of a transition taking place? If so you’re not alone. It has been a topic of discussion among many people. The good news is that all of these shifts and changes have brought us into position to attract success, which has been elusive for quite some time. Be watchful for messages coming your way which will help to achieve some goals you’ve desired for a long time. It’s also a good time to think about your career. This period is good for trying for a promotion or maybe even changing paths. All of the success we’ve been talking about here will happen even more rapidly if we also focus on connecting with the spiritual aspects of ourselves. If things have been rough for you for a while, take heart. A period of renewal is on the way and it can be a fantastic time in which we can see dreams come true.
I do not want to gloss over the spiritual aspect of this too quickly, because it is so vital. It’s important that we take the time to reflect upon all of the things we have learned in times of difficulty, and even the good times. There have been lessons to be learned as well as opportunities to grow throughout all of it. Have you taken those opportunities? Not only are we supposed to acknowledge the lessons that we learn, we are also meant to implement those lessons into real life practice. In other words, we have to walk the walk. If you haven’t given much though to this, now is the time to look back and appreciate the larger picture behind all of our experiences. Tap into that spiritual center and use those lessons and energies to flourish. Even victory is something which is a conscious choice, just as is defeat. Only you can ultimately decide which way you will go. There is one last thing which I would like for you to think about. When you think about victory, do you only think of the material side of it? Victory can come in many different forms and sometimes we can miss seeing it if we are too focused on only one aspect of life.
