Justice! Look Beneath the Surface (Wednesday)

justice tarot
Intuitive Tarot by Cilla Conway

Wednesday’s Tarot card is Justice and she comes to tell you that everything is equal, balanced and fair, even if it doesn’t seem that way right now.

Don’t concern yourself with “getting even” if someone has pissed you off or wronged you – just get on with your day, even if that feels difficult.

You may feel extra challenged today when it comes to imposing your will on others – you may either be tempted to boss someone around or you might feel as though someone else is trying to do this to you.

Focus on seeing the underlying theme of the situation. For example, if your friend is acting a bit manipulative, try to see what is going on underneath all of that – perhaps she is trying to control things because her life feels out of control. This will help you be compassionate and not take the behavior personally.

Eight of Swords – See Your Problems as a Game (Tuesday)

Druidcraft Tarot

The Eight of Swords comes today to remind you of why you create “problems” in your life.

From the perspective of your Higher Self, you create problems so you can learn to heal and create change for yourself. In other words, your problems and challenges exist to help you become skilled at creating peace and joy for yourself.

Think of your “problems” as a game and get creative thinking of different ways you might shift things. The woman in this card is here by her own accord – no one put her there and no one will rescue her – it is up to her to untie herself and lift her blindfold.

Once you see your problems as something that is self created, you are free to have fun with them – this sounds a bit “out there”, I know! But looking at your life in this way can create a sense of peace and freedom.

Freedom – Open your arms to Conscious Manifestation! (Monday)

freedom
Life Purpose Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue

Today’s card is Freedom, from the Life Purpose Oracle Cards. The message is “you’re free to do what you choose.” Sometimes you forget this, but today its time to remember!

You have unlimited options at your fingertips. Some days this is obvious, but other times you may feel limited or stuck. Any limitations are self imposed and only an illusion – even though they may feel very real for you.

Today is about embracing the fact that you really do create your own reality and you are free to shape your life the way you choose. Spend time today consciously manifesting – write down what you want to welcome into your life, what you are ready to release and what direction you would like to move in.

You can review your list every day or every week – but keep it in your conscious awareness. In the comments below, tell me what you want to welcome into your world right now!

 

Tarot Forecast For the Week Ahead!

For this reading I am using the Wildwood Tarot – a new deck that I got for Christmas but haven’t really used until now. If you are wondering why I haven’t posted Part 3 of my “Interactive Tarot Reading” series, like I promised, I will be posting it next Saturday. The Summer activities have distracted me and I just didn’t get it written in time!

Queen of Swords: Give Your Life the Snip-Snip (Friday)

friday's with veronica

My evil, Tarot reading twin Veronica is commandeering Friday’s on my blog. I am giving her her very own day! Each Friday she will deliver a reading chalk full of horrid advice and inappropriate suggestions. I strongly advise you to take everything she says with a grain of salt…

queen of swords
The Housewives Tarot

The Queen of Swords in this Housewive’s Tarot is a terror with a pair of garden shears who goes around carelessly castrating roses – particularly those with men’s faces on them?!

This Queen doesn’t stand of any B.S. If your not up to snuff, she gives you the snip snip…and she does it with a smile.

Be this Queen today and gleefully cut back what isn’t working in your life.

Job pissing you off?…..phone in sick.

Friend who won’t shut up about her problems?…..hang up on her.

Cable company sends you a notice that they will be increasing your rates again? Phone them and cancel your cable. F**k em. Play hardball.

Think about what you can do without – for me its TV, a cell phone, junk food and newspapers – and cut those things out of your life for a while and see what happens. You aren’t depriving yourself – you’re cutting yourself free.

Tell me in the comments below…what useless crap will you be deep sixing today?

Pick Your Battles…Then Enjoy Them to the Fullest! (Thursday)

five of rods
New Palladini Tarot
The Five of Rods is the Tarot card of the day and its all about conflict, minor battles and competitiveness. Fur is going to fly!

You may find yourself thinking “why can’t we all just get along?” or “wouldn’t it be nice if we all could live in peace?”

Indeed, it would be very nice…and boring. Did it ever occur that perhaps you create your own dramas to keep yourself entertained, even if its stressful?

The wisdom of this card is that differences of opinion and wills are inevitable, but you don’t need to go around engaging in this kind of crap 24-7.

Pick your battles wisely, but then engage in them fully. Its okay to enjoy an argument every now and then. Just don’t take it all too seriously.

Honour Your Voice and Speak Your Truth! (Wednesday)

9 of swords fairytale tarot
The Fairytale Tarot by Karen Mahony

Don’t give up your voice! Today’s card is the Nine of Swords from the Fairytale Tarot and The Little Mermaid is the story associated with it.

The Nine of Swords often represents regret and The Little Mermaid is about trading your voice for something (in this case, legs). If you hold back and don’t speak your truth because you think keeping silent will get you something you want, you will regret it.

No one can silence you – but you can willingly silence yourself. Don’t do it! At least, not today, anyway. Sometimes silence is best, but if it makes you feel powerless, then speak up loud and proud.

Your silence won’t have the placating effect you are hoping for anyway, so might as well speak your truth!

Resist the Temptation to Give Advice! (Tuesday)

counselling
Life Purpose Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue

Today’s card is “counseling” and the message is “you heal with kind words, wise advice and an empathetic ear.”

Someone will ask for your advice today. And here’s the catch….don’t give it! Just listen and be compassionate, but see if you can refrain from telling them what to do.

People say they want your advice, but really they don’t. They want to be heard and understood and then make up their own minds about how to proceed.

Avoid falling into the advice-giver role and you will avoid the annoyance of having your advice ignored! Plus, you will actually be more helpful to your friend in the long run.

Stop Procrastinating! Seven of Cups (Monday)

7 of cups
Druidcraft Tarot

There is a difference between contemplation and procrastination. So are you processing things or are you stuck? The Seven of Cups Tarot card suggest you might be stuck!

So many choices, so many different paths you can take, but don’t spend forever in that glazed over, spaced out state of overwhelm and indecision. Take action!

You keep thinking that a great idea will smack you over the head eventually….but you might be waiting a while. The sooner to take some kind of action, the better. Then you will have more ideas, insights and solutions than you will know what to do with.

So what are you waiting for? Get crackin’!
