Today’s card is from the Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert.
This card highlights love and relationships. I’m going to talk about both aspects of this card, because it is important to see the potential…the good and not so good. Whether you are experiencing the type of love and relationships with self and others that makes all seem right with the world, or the type which produces feelings which can drag you down rapidly, the questions to ask today are the same. Is your heart open for giving and receiving love? Are you feeling compassion toward yourself and others?
If the answer to those questions is anything less than an immediate yes, it’s time to turn that around. When openness and compassion are diminished, so is the sense of connectedness which exists in a happy healthy heart. This doesn’t mean that you have to be everyone’s best friend or that you are responsible for taking on everyone’s problems. You can be compassionate and loving while caring for your own well being. While connection and compassion involve action at times, they are best accessed from a state of mind…of being…which allows them to flow naturally.
