This Week’s Tarot Advice

I drew two cards this week. One yesterday and one Monday. I sat down to draw one to be posted for today and just knew that I needed to put links to the ones drawn earlier this week-for a few reasons-which I’ll get into shortly. First here is the link for Monday’s card. And here is the one for yesterday’s.

Now that you’re back from checking those out, I’ll explain why I’m expanding these two cards for the entire week. First without going into too much detail, there have been several conversations with others which have indicated the need to finally make a choice or decision about something-not to mention things which have been happening in my own experiences. As for my experiences, they continued until late in the day yesterday. So, these factors led me to start thinking that these cards are likely for the week as opposed to simply Monday and Tuesday.

The second thing which made it clear to me that these cards are a bit more far reaching than just a few days was a comment which was made about making decisions and taking actions during a mercury retrograde. While mercury retrograde is not the best time for new undertakings, they are perfect for revisiting issues.

Part of the interpretation of Monday’s card was, “These options may have been in front of you for a while, but the time has come to look at them with the eyes of your heart in order to dispel any confusion. It is time to pick one.”

Given what has been popping up for me as well as the things I’ve been hearing about from others, I’d say that those two cards are good for at least the rest of this week and perhaps longer as mercury will be in retrograde until May 22. Now is the perfect time to look at the decisions or conclusions which we’ve all been putting off for a while and get clear about what it is that we truly feel and desire-as well as what is actually a lot clearer than we may have been able or willing to see before.

Once we’ve had time to sit with these matters for a while and have decided what would be in our best interests, regardless of external opinions, the time has come to resolve some long standing issues in a more permanent and fulfilling way than has existed in a while. While parts of this process may be downright uncomfortable, taking this on at this time is definitely for our highest good.

Card of the Day ~ January 30, 2016

Today’s card is from the Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert.

Two of Fire

The Two of Fire is a card of the type of passion which ignites you with energy. This passion could be about anything from an attraction to a person, project, idea…well…anything. You do have a choice, as always, whether you wish to act upon this attraction or not. This will be a good day for honest examination about your undertakings. Would it be irrational or irresponsible to act upon your desire? If not, go for it! If you are thinking of saying no to whatever this is…is it because it truly isn’t a good idea or is it because of fear of risking it with the unfamiliar? If you find that it is fear which is standing between you and  the something or someone you are so drawn to, work on finding the power within to do it anyway.

Ten of Water

The Ten of Water pictures the life cycle of the salmon. You can see that some are making their way upstream to begin a new cycle, while others have reached the end of their own. You might find yourself at a point in your life where you feel as though your life is filled with struggles, or perhaps you’ve slid into a place in which you are having difficulties because you’ve come to believe that you are not appreciated. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, ask for help in coming to realize that your efforts matter in the grand scheme of things. Whether it seems as though anyone else notices or appreciates the things that we do, the impact of what we send out into the world matters. How we feel about our part in the circle of life is a matter of perspective and motive.

Five of Fire

The Five of Fire cautions against the desire to dominate others and situations due to a desire to be the center of attention. The card also asks us to be mindful of our tempers today. Remember that it is possible to go too far when we are letting our temper take over…creating serious, sometimes permanent rifts or alienation. If you feel short fused today, stop and ask yourself what it is that you are feeling fearful of. By redirecting these feelings appropriately, there is an opportunity to avoid problems with others…and more importantly, it is an opportunity to seek out the heart of the problems and handle it in a way which heals instead of hurts.

Child of Earth

The Child of Earth is all about learning to connect with the natural world. It is important to rekindle our relationship with nature…to tap back into your fascination…to be more aware and observant of it. This card could also symbolize that you are concerned with your health and are interested in embarking on a new lifestyle of healthier eating and incorporating more activity. This is a good time to begin.

The flip side of this card indicates that perhaps you have found yourself imbalanced when it comes to the importance placed on the material things in life…even to the point of allowing your health and relationships with others to take a secondary role. If this is the case for you, it is time to make some changes.

Child of Air

If you have been looking for a solution to something which has escaped your grasp, it is possible that the answer will come in a light hearted moment. As this might be somewhat unexpected, keep your mind open today for unorthodox inspiration. If you’ve been thinking of learning something new, today will be a good day to begin to explore it.

The Guardian of Water encourages us to listen to our intuition and follow our hearts. Today will be a great day to focus on harmony in our lives and nurturing ourselves. This is especially important for those who expend a lot of energy taking care of others. Trust your heart to guide you when it comes to practicing compassion and empathy, without being taken in by those who are draining or too demanding of time, energy, and resources.
