Halloween is one of my favorite days of the year – there is always such a fun, magical, mysterious energy to this day! The Seven of Cups is the card I drew and it represents choices, dreams and indecision.
Do you feel like your head has been stuck in the clouds lately? If you have been feeling scattered, the Seven of Cups reminds you that having lots of dreams, interests and choices is something to celebrate. But if you feel like you spend way more time dreaming than actually making your dreams happen, you may want to take a new approach.
The main message I got with this card was that once you identify what your major time wasters and energy zappers are, you will be well on your way to transforming your life.
I thought about this myself and realized that watching TV and spending unproductive time on the internet was draining most of my free time. For the month of November I am going to eliminate TV altogether and limit my internet time and see what kind of a difference it makes in my life.
The Seven of Cups Tarot card prompts you to ask the question: What change can you make today that will enhance the quality of your life and help you get your head out of the clouds?
The Queen of Cups Tarot card, this one is from the Paulina Tarot, comes today to remind you that your dreams are waiting patiently inside of you, wanting to come out!
If you often find yourself wondering if something is possible, the Queen of Cups would tell you that you need not wonder if, but how you can bring something into reality.
All possibilities are already inside of you. It’s up to you to decide which ones you are going to “give birth to” or manifest. It is a matter of opening your mind to what you believe is possible and then consciously aligning yourself with your dream.
Life Coaching Activity
Here is a fun activity to help you get started on mapping out your dreams and creating realistic pathways and inroads in your life to help you get there! For this you will need: colored pens and a large piece of paper (or two regular sized sheets of paper taped together to form a long, rectangular piece).
On the left side of your sheet of paper, write a vertical list of what elements make up your life right now. This could be your job, daily activities, hobbies – basically what you do in an average week. My Life Now:
On the far right side of the paper you write your dreams. You can be totally free and creative here – you don’t need to be realistic. Just list the elements of your ideal life! Sometimes it can be fun to draw little pictures beside each dream. My Dreams….
In the center of the paper, draw a big heart (or globe) in this you will brainstorm all your positive qualities– your gifts, talents, learned skills, likeable traits, etc.
Now, in the space between the heart and your dreams, write down how you would like your life to be like one year from now. You should be somewhat realistic here – only write down things that you believe will be achievable in one year. My Life in One Year:
In the space between your life now and the heart, write down 5 small steps you will take in the next couple of months in order to move closer to your one year goal. Underneath this, make a list of all the people that will help you on your path (such as friends, teachers, mentors, family).
You can put this up on your wall or fridge, or tuck it away and peek at it every now and then. You will surprised how quickly some of your goals manifest after writing them down like this!
Today’s Tarot card is the Five of Wands, a card of minor struggles, squabbles and healthy competition.
You may feel more tempted than usual today to disagree with people, try to prove yourself right or instigate arguments. If you can, try to resist!
This card also refers to inner struggle between different aspects of yourself. You may find that you feel like lounging on the couch all evening, while your more industrious side thinks you should finish a project, or do chores. Or your rational side may squabble with your more emotional side when it comes to decision making.
Whatever it is that you experience today, it will help you to develop a healthy sense of humor about it. Learn to laugh at your ego and see the lighter side of a situation. Remember what is important to you and focus your attention on creating harmony and cooperation in your life.
The Nine of Cups is today’s Tarot card – and that is two nines in a row! As yesterday’s card was the Nine of Swords. The Nine of Cups Tarot card asks you to make a wish…
Take a moment today to look back at all the wonderful things you have manifested in your life. How did you accomplish it? What did you do? What helped you? What are you wanting to manifest now?
After all this past and future thinking about manifestation, just let it all go and enjoy the best moment there ever is – the present moment! Take pleasure in walking in the trees, watching the fog your breath makes in the cold air, gazing up at the stars and moon and just enjoy being alive!
The Nine of Swords Tarot card brings you the message that you need to let go of the things that keep you awake at night. Stop worrying! These issues are not as important as you think they are.
If you find yourself lying in bed at night, tossing and turning, trying to quiet your overactive mind, take a moment to get out of your head and into your body. An overactive mind cannot disturb you if you are not completely identified with it.
Get into your body by taking a few deep breaths. Pay attention to how your body feels. Try focusing on bringing your point of consciousness from your head, down into your heart center. You can do this by rubbing your upper chest area in circles with your left hand until you feel like your heart energy has been “activated”.
If you still feel overly anxious and distracted, write out all your worries on a piece of paper and tell yourself you will deal with them tomorrow. The wisdom of the Nine of Swords Tarot card lies in knowing that your worries are only thoughts and thoughts can be changed. So take a deep breath and relax!
The Eight of Wands Tarot card is an exciting one! It shows up today to remind you that you are gifted with an amazing power to manifest and get things moving!
Send out your request to the universe using your intention, clarity and focus and you will be amazed at the results. Tap into the power of your imagination in order to visualize your desired outcome.
The main message today is that the only thing standing between you and your dreams is…you. Sometimes that can sound pretty irritating but it is also kind of a relief, too!
Make today a manifestation day – once you get clear on your goals and dreams, write them out, draw pictures beside them, or create a vision board that will inspire you on a daily basis – do whatever it takes to make your dreams into something tangible.
Judgement is the Tarot card for today and it is from the Paulina Tarot deck. The Judgement Tarot card meaning has so many layers to it, but the main theme is rebirth and reinventing the Self.
Today is your chance to really step into a new way of being, living and creating. The symbolism in this Paulina Tarot card makes me think of the Goddess and feminine energy – as the trees in this card are shaped in an hourglass figure. This also makes me think of time!
Let go of your obsession with time today – or even just notice your fixation on time. This will pull you deeper into the present moment and give you a stronger sense of appreciation for what is, helping you connect to the earth on a much more profound level than before.
The more you are able to let go of the illusion of time and embrace the feminine cycles of birth, death and rebirth that are inherent in everything, the more quickly you will ascend, rising up past illusions and experiencing life in a whole new way!
Today’s Tarot card is the Five of Swords (which is actually called the Five of Air in the Osho Zen Tarot deck). The Five of swords Tarot card is all about comparisonand how it can keep us from truly blossoming.
If you catch yourself making comparisons between people, things, or perhaps comparing yourself to others, notice how it makes you feel. Chances are it makes you feel frustrated, deflated and uncomfortable!
Comparing yourself to someone else is futile and will only cause you misery – it is a surefire way to deplete your energy today. Shift your focus so that you see everyone, including yourself, as unique individuals with different gifts and life purpose.
Another message I get with the Five of Swords Tarot card is that trying to be like someone else is also just as energy depleting. You are unique and have a unique way of seeing things and doing things – don’t take that gift for granted by trying to imitate somebody else!
