The Star ~ Tarot Card for Friday!

Robin Wood Tarot

The Star Tarot card is one of the most magical cards in a Tarot deck, and it has appeared today to bring you a special message.

Just like Tuesday’s card (Waterfall), the message today is that life can be effortless and easy. Stop trying so hard and everything will flow into place. Surrender the urge to orchestrate everything!

When you relax and let go, that is when your divine star-like nature emerges. You are at your best when you trust in life and allow things to unfold in their own time.

You don’t have to try harder to have a powerful effect on the world around you – you just have to get out of your own way. And know that when you are relaxed about life, inspiration, ideas and creativity flow to you like never before – you will never have to worry about being “blocked” or running out of ideas again!

Two of Swords ~ Tarot Card for Thursday

two of swords
The Paulina Tarot by Paulina Cassidy

Today’s Tarot card is the Two of Swords, from the Paulina Tarot. It’s decision time again! And its also time to stop being so annoying indecisive! This is not a life or death situation, so don’t feel like you have to mull things over for eternity.

The real issue here is that you have a hard time trusting yourself. Yes, you ARE capable of making the right decision and if you happen to make the wrong one, you are capable of fixing things and getting back on your feet again.

If you want to wait until you have more information to go on, that’s fine….just don’t wait forever. You may be trying to make this decision with your intellect, when consulting your heart is all that’s needed. Your mind is great, but it can only get you so far.

 

Transformation ~ Tarot Card for Wednesday

transformation
Osho Zen Tarot

Transformation from the Osho Zen Tarot (aka Death) has arrived to help you usher in all the new, exciting changes that are happening within you. Have you felt lately as though you were almost changing overnight?

The sleeping face on this card indicates that much transformation occurs during your sleep. You probably don’t realize just how much learning and growth you experience through your dreams.

In a way, sleep is like death – it gives us a chance to release the old and start fresh again the next day. You can use your sleep to re-program your life.

For example, spend a few moments before bed focusing on all the positive things that happened that day and dreaming about what you want to bring into your life and how you want to feel. When you awaken, spend a moment lying in bed, just feeling the life force within you radiate with positive energy. This is one of the most wonderful ways to start your day!

Oracle Card Reading for Tuesday

Earth Magic Oracle Cards by Steven Farmer

Today’s Oracle card is Waterfall ~ Effortless and it is here to remind us that life is not supposed to be difficult. If you find yourself struggling and striving, remember that there is a different way….

Take the path of least resistance, let life flow, and you will be surprised at how much you “get done”. If there is something you want to accomplish today, ask yourself “what is the easiest, most relaxing way I can do this?”

Another message I get with this card is that there is a trickle down effect that is always happening. The little things we do today can have a big impact later on. So take baby steps toward your goals and know that in doing so, you are actually taking great strides toward your dreams!

The High Priestess ~ Tarot Card for Monday

high priestess
Hanson Roberts Tarot

You are stepping into this week with full intuitive powers! Your openness to receiving higher guidance will have a delicious effect on things today and for the next several days, as your inner High Priestess has grown and become strong.

Now is a time to use your wisdom and discernment in a subtle, yet powerful way. No one is going to try to push you around today…and if they do? Watch out! Your inner High Priestess is not as passive and gentle as she appears 😉

Guard your privacy today and don’t feel like you have to reveal everything to everyone. You can be open and clear in your dealings with others without giving away too much about yourself. Keep personal details to yourself – no one needs to know all that stuff! If you feel tempted to give a convoluted explanation to someone today – stop yourself and keep it simple.

When the SAME Tarot card keeps showing up….this is what it means…

Have you ever noticed how sometimes the SAME Tarot card will just keep showing up in your readings? Perhaps this card even appears when doing a Tarot reading for someone else.

What does this mean?!

I have noticed that with nearly every Tarot or Oracle deck I have, there is a particular card unique to that deck that I will pull repeatedly. For example, with my Magical Mermaids and Dolphins oracle card deck, I almost always get the “Ready, Set, Go!” card. It was happening so frequently that I actually looked the card over to see if there were any sticky bits or something that was causing me to choose it again and again. But there was nothing.

Four of Swords from the Robin Wood Tarot

There was a time a couple years ago when I kept getting the Four of Swords Tarot card in my readings. To me, the Four of Swords is about meditation, rest and going within. It didn’t make sense to me at the time since I felt I had a perfect balance between action and rest. And yet the Four of Swords kept coming up. Even today, I am not really sure why that card kept coming up for me.

So what does it mean when you keep getting the same card in all your readings?

I feel that repeat appearances (lets call them encore cards) are your spirit guides, higher self, angels or The Universe trying to get a message to you. If you keep getting the same card it means you haven’t properly heard or understood the message.

Here is my 3 step process for de-coding the meaning of these encore cards:

Step One: Be open to the card meaning something slightly different from its traditional meaning. Really pay attention to the symbols in the card, what these symbols mean to you and how the card makes you feel.

Step Two: If the card suggests a particular action (for example, the Four of Swords suggests meditation), try taking that action and see what happens.

Step Three: If you still keep seeing this card after taking action, close your eyes and ask your guides or higher self what message they are trying to send you via this card. Be open to any guidance, impressions or feelings you receive.

However, sometimes encore cards are not an urgent message but a reminder that your spirit guides are always with you. This is especially true if you keep getting a positive card (like The Star or The Sun) when you are going through a rough time.

profoundly-clairvoyant

When I read with my Angel Therapy oracle deck, I always, without fail, pull the card that says “you are profoundly clairvoyant”. I think this is kind of funny because I don’t always see myself as profoundly clairvoyant – perhaps moderately, but not profoundly! I have decided this is just my spirit guides confirming that I am on the right path and to keep working on my psychic abilities, even when I doubt myself.

So what card, or cards, keep coming up for you lately? And what is your theory on repeat cards?
I would love to hear all about it in the comments below!

 

Love ~ Oracle Card for Friday!

love
Earth Magic Oracle Cards by Steven Farmer

The oracle card for Friday is all about Love and Compassion. When you notice how you are surrounded by love, its easier to feel love, and then its easier to emanate love. So begin by noticing love wherever you find it.

Be open to how you recognize love in your everyday life. Do you notice the excited chirping of birds in the trees? The effortless beauty of an apple tree in blossom? The way the sun warms your skin? All of these things are divine expressions of love!

Focus on connecting to your heart today. Breathe into the heart and feel your mind sinking down your body and resting in your heart area – if you can keep your awareness there for more than a few seconds you will be amazed at how your perspective shifts.

 

Eight of Wands ~ Tarot Card for Thursday

Robin Wood Tarot

Prepare for things to speed up suddenly – either today or later this week. The Eight of Wands suggests that things will be unfolding very quickly toward a positive outcome.

Important communication in the form of letters, emails, phone calls or texts will be finding their way to you today. You may get some exciting news!

Thoughts, intentions and dreams will manifest quickly at this time, so be extra diligent about the vibes you are sending out into the universe. Make sure your thoughts reflect what you want to create and that your emotions are peaceful and loving (for the most part, as nobody’s perfect!)

Page of Cups ~ Tarot Card for Wednesday

hanson roberts tarot
Hanson-Roberts Tarot

Today’s Tarot card, the Page of Cups, is all about learning and being inspired. Let your intuition and creative yearning guide you toward learning something new today.

This card can represent engaging in artistic activities, learning about art or even learning about tapping into your intuition. But there is an excited, youthful energy with this card, reminding you that no matter how old you are, learning something new will bring you a sense of freshness and renewal.

This Page wears his heart on his sleeve (or his shoulder, in this card), suggesting that being expressive and open about your feelings will serve you well today.
