No, you don’t need a degree! Part of you thinks that if some authoritative “governing body” issues you a certificate then you will have permission to do what you really want to. That’s just not true.
Do you feel tempted to keep signing up for courses and programs? There is nothing wrong with being a life long learner, but do it out of sheer interest and not out of a sense of lack.
You already have everything you need to succeed.
What is needed is presence. If you can be present in all you do, and give things your full attention, you will contribute to this world in profound ways.
If you feel bombarded by your worries, try writing out your “problems” on a sheet of paper. This gets them out of your head.
Can you remember that last time you solved a big problem by worrying endlessly about it? Of course you can’t!
Your mind is a gift and its there to help you – but sometimes, if left to run the show it goes batshit crazy and starts fabricating troubles just so it can keep itself busy as a bee.
If there’s one thing your mind hates, its being idle. How noble! Thank your mind for working overtime without pay and then do something to switch it off like swimming, painting or yoga.
The King of Swords is here to remind you to think carefully, be mature and don’t fall for any smarmy, charmy B.S. from anyone today.
You may be called upon to make some big decisions and you will do well to present yourself to others as a rational, level headed person (even if that’s not really the “real” you).
Someone may try to sway you with cheesy compliments and a suck-up attitude. Just stick to your guns and see through the act.
If you have a hard time relating to this King of Swords, due to his over-the-top seriousness, know that you have a bit of his personality traits residing within you. Don’t hesitate to let those parts of you shine today!
Today’s Tarot card is The Hierophant and he symbolizes your desire to appeal to a higher authority. This can show up in your life as wanting to be told what to do, given a set of rules to follow or a formula for success and happiness.
Are you searching for that perfect diet that will solve all your problems? Do you endlessly read self-help books that promise to give you the keys to living your life purpose or finding joy?
There is a certain comfort in believing that the answers are outside of you, because if they are within you, why haven’t you figured it all out yet? Right?
In general, we have been trained to search outside ourselves for experts, formulas, programs and roadmaps that will help us get what we want. We aren’t as familiar with reaching deep within and finding our own wisdom and our own methods for doing things.
But now is the time to start doing this. Meditation, Tarot reading, meditative drawing and writing, even walking or swimming are all ways you can tap into your own wise master today.
The Ten of Pentacles is here to remind you to be smart in your dealings with others.
You may want to be 100% open and honest, but know that there is a way to be “transparent” without revealing everything. Its okay to keep your cards close to your chest today.
If someone wants to do a business/services trade with you, only do so if you actually think you will benefit from it. Don’t just agree to a crappy deal because you want to seem nice.
This card often represents the realm of business and the “marketplace” – so if you have your own business and want to share it with my audience, you may do so right here.
Okay – main message today is: SAY NO! Like the song from the pervert prevention videos they showed you in school – shout no like you mean it, shout no and run away! Maybe it was only in Canada that these films were shown, but you know what I mean.
The Eight of Cups is usually about walking away from something that you put a lot of work into, only to find that it doesn’t bring you the meaning and satisfaction you were seeking. But today, the meaning is a little different…
You may be asked to do something or be a part of some group or project. If it doesn’t immediately light you up say NO. You have tons of stuff going on right now and don’t have time for this crap.
Today’s Tarot card is the Nine of Wands from the Fenestra Tarot. Its message is all about challenging your beliefs – particularly those stemming from past negative experiences.
If you find yourself preparing for failure or expecting the worse even when everything is actually going quite well, it might be time to examine some of your core beliefs – particularly your beliefs around success. Past hurts or betrayals can put you “on guard”, but don’t let the past shape your present or future. It doesn’t have to!
So if you are feeling uneasy for any reason today, ask yourself what thought or belief is lying behind that uneasiness. Is that thought stemming from a past experience? If so, find a way to release that past event so that you can move forward with fearlessness. There is absolutely no need to worry or take a doom and gloom approach today – your success should be celebrated and not feared!
Wednesday’s Tarot card is the majestic Queen of Pentacles and she appears to us on a very special day – 12.12.12! Today is the last time in our lives that a day/month/year will have the same number. The Queen’s message is clear – work on grounding yourself,staying centered, building your confidence and maintaining your physical health.
If you have been worrying about money lately, you may have some insights and shifts around this area today. Your confidence issues and money issues go hand in hand – so if you are struggling with money, working on your confidence will help in a big way.
Physical health is also tied to money and confidence issues – its all connected! Support your body and energy by eating fresh, whole foods, drinking lots of water and getting the exercise and rest your body craves. When your physical systems are humming along, its easier to focus on things that are important to you.
The Seven of Cups is here today to show you how you can stop feeling so scattered and daydreamy and start celebrating your creativity and ideas in a way that feels more productive!
If you feel like there are just too many ideas, opportunities, people and activities floating around in you life, take a breath. You don’t have to do it all at once. Now is the time to document all this extra energy and creativity so that you have something to draw on when your mood and mindset changes.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, take out a piece of paper and write down everything you feel you must do and all the ideas that have been coming to you. If you can break these up into categories, all the better. Just because a great idea has popped into you head, it doesn’t mean you have to give it your full attention – write it down and come back to it later.
If you aren’t sure what project you should focus on right now, take a few minutes to go within and ask your inner guide/higher self for advice – you will be amazed at how this can bring you instant clarity!
