Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Two of Swords – Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Two of Swords: Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Provide the stability for the chaos going on around you and be the leader of success. While others are stressing out and losing their heads, you can keep things calm, focused and on track. The motto for today and through the weekend is “Eye on the Prize”. Let all the little stuff sort itself out and you’ll win the race.


Additional Insight:

You can draw your swords, join in the fight and make things much worse than they really are. Or you can use those swords to stake your claim to this area of your world and bring calm to the situation. There’s always two sides to every story. So make sure you know exactly what’s transpired on both sides of the conflict to bring about much-needed peace.

Frustrations will cause others to feel panic and their anxiety will be looking for a release. You can control everyone’s emotions by simply leading by example and keeping a lid on your anger. Plans cannot be managed from a place of false justice.

Swords represent strife and conflict, or strength and focus. Which avenue you choose today will carry through the entire weekend. Make your choices wisely and from a place of balanced insight. You’ll set the tone for everyone around you and that in turn will dictate the success or failure of your projects moving forward.

Put on your executive hat this morning and look at the bigger picture. There’s much to be done and in order to do it well, everyone must be in their best mindset. Even the smallest mistake today could derail everyone’s chances at success. Don’t get involved in the struggles or conflict of other camps around you. But keep your eyes on your neck of the woods and what’s in your immanent domain. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Swords – Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Seven of Swords:Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Be prepared and ready your shields, someone wants to pick a fight with you today. Don’t allow them to ruin your day or impact your mood. Remember no one defines who you are, but you. Their words are nothing more than cries for help from a place of sorrow and sadness. Turn the tables and throw some compassion into their dark world and you could be the one making an impact with kindness in someone’s life.


Additional Insight:

Not everyone who’s watching you is on your side. Don’t dwell on those lurking in the shadows, you’ll only feed the energy they’re looking to take from you. Simply set some strong shields of protection and go about your day. You might get through your tasks and chores without conflict of any kind. Stick to your list of things to do and focus on you.

If someone does find the guts to confront you, don’t allow their negativity to alter your energy or mood. Let your shields bounce their anger and jealousy off your shield and back into their darkness. You’re not responsible for their actions and choices.

If you’ve said things to them in the past that you regret, use this opportunity to apologize and take responsibility for your words. What we say, think and do all have energy and consequences. And while we may not be responsible for their negative self talk or thinking, we could have contributed to it from our past actions. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ace of Swords – Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Keep an eye on your work and your emotions associated with all your important projects. Don’t allow your frustrations to get the best of you and bring about anger. It will cloud your judgement and cause more problems than it will solve. Don’t share too many of your secrets, but discuss enough to nurture the goals and gain insights from those who have something to share. Collaboration is a good way to overcome obstacles. But make sure you know who you can trust with your new insights and ideas. 


Additional Insight:

Not everything has to be shared with the world. Be cautious about what you let out of the bag. Once it’s out there, you can never get it back. Information is power in today’s world. The more you have, the more you can control in your life. And sometimes in the lives of others. So be careful what you tweet and post in your moments of great frustration!

That conversation on social media isn’t as secure as you think it might be. Even if you think it’s simply a private message to your “best” friend. That direct message can be copied and sent to others who you do not want to know about your secrets.

Make sure you know who you can trust. And either speak with them in person, or simply keep it to yourself until next week. Be wary of speaking with others on the phone too, it may not be as secure as you hope. You never know if someone else is there, listening in because the one you trust is listening to you on speaker.

Sharing A New Deck
Steampunk Tarot by Barbara Moore (Author), Aly Fell (Author/Artist)

For anyone who loves sci-fi, from Star Trek to Firefly to Doctor Who and anything in Victorian period clothing, steampunk is a very happy world indeed.” ~ Barbara Moore

Oh yes it is indeed. I quite agree with that! And it’s probably that Victorian period look that attracts me the most. But more about this later.

I’m a creature of habit and routine. I like it that way. While I can easily have moments of spontaneity; what Gemini doesn’t, I do like my regular things that must be done kept in a certain order. And that includes pulling the card of the day.

All of our drawings to this point have used the Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft. A beautiful deck that I have felt very drawn to and connected with. Nature Faeries are a big part of my life and my day. And this deck is not only amazingly artistic, it’s fantastic for reading and interpreting the messages from spirit. And from the Fae.

I began pulling a daily card to share on December 1, 2009. Five years of using the same deck. I have other decks of course, but it wasn’t until recently that I’ve felt the need to let the faeries rest. A new deck and a new challenge was in the works.

On a cold Saturday night I was scrolling through Pinterest when I found an image of the Major Arcana’s Star that grabbed my attention. Investigating I discovered the card came from a deck called the Steampunk Tarot. Off to Google Images to see more. Oh boy! Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ten of Cups

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - 10 of cups

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Bells will be ringing in the changes and transitions in this chapter of your life. You can choose to see those changes as struggles with sorrowful emotions. Or you can look forward with faith and welcome in the new. Remember all clouds have a silver lining and you’re the one who selects your perspectives. Make the decision to be happy with the energy coming your way. Get excited about what you’ll discover over the next little hill. You’ll be glad that you did.


Additional Insight:

You maybe saying some good-byes or fare-the-wells. That’s ok. You’ve gotten what you needed from those encounters and it’s time to move on to something better. It was nice while it lasted, but you really do deserve more.

Whither it’s a relationship, friendship or a position at work or in a group, the writing was on the wall. Did you not notice the little signs that trying to tell you it was time to let go and move on? Often times when we don’t listen to our gut instincts and push through the feelings, the struggles become harder. Until the Divine force in your life has to give you a kick in the pants to get off the bench and make changes happen.

You’re always given the chance to see where the path is taking you. But when you constantly refuse to act upon it, you’re only make things harder on yourself. Go with the flow and accept what transpires. Know that this is for the best and for your better interests. There are many decisions and choices involved that have brought you to this point. And some of those you had nothing to do with. As is the case sometimes when we cross paths with other souls. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Queen of Cups

cups-queen

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Nurture your goals and put forth an effort into achieving them. Whither its a little item on your list of things to do, or a dream you’re trying to manifest, spend some time and energy to make it a reality. No one is going to do it for you. Inspire yourself,  focus and Git-R-Done.


Additional Insight:

Be the ruler over your own domain today and do something for you. In between all the work and little things you’re getting done for everyone else, you have time to spend on yourself. Skip the 15-minute gossip session in the hall, it’s not a good use of energy anyway.

Remember that what you think, say and do brings back the same energy to you that you’re putting out. Watch your words and thoughts. You don’t know everything that’s going on in someone elses life. They maybe at a breaking point and simply covering it up very well.

So forget about what other people are doing. Show some compassion. And if you can’t do that, than simply ignore the outside world and focus on your own task list. What do you have to get done on your list of resolutions or steps toward a goal or your big dream? That’s a much better use of your time today. Continue reading
