Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Hanged Man – Inverted

The Hanged Fae - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You can jump for joy today. Your optimistic perspective is about to be rewarded. While others seemed to be hanging on for dear life, you made the best of a bad situation. And because you didn’t panic, others will view your actions as a positive performance of leadership. But be careful you don’t gloat!


Additional Insight:

Not everyone handles stress in the same way. Some people already have so much on their plate, that one more issue can break their back. This isn’t really a sign of weakness. Rather that they’ve stood up to so much, they simply can’t handle any more. Show compassion and kindness to these people. There by the grace of the Divine, might go you.

The issue or event you’re being recognized for, may have occurred months ago and you may have already forgotten about it. But those in power have not. They’ve been watching you and they’ve admired your resilience. When the accolades come, be gracious and spread the gratitude to those around you who helped take control and resolve the situation. If you gloat or show arrogance, you could undermine the opportunity being presented to you.

When the excitement calms down by the afternoon, use this moment to get something out of this for you and maybe those who work with you. It’s a rare thing to hold some power and sway. You have a chance to use it for some good. If not for yourself, than for others who need someone watching out for them too. Just don’t stick your neck out too far for someone else. By the evening you’ll have reason to celebrate and jump for joy! So do take some time to smile and rejoice with those who are important to you. You succeeded where others did not and that’s something to be proud of.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Cups

Knight Of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be watchful over your domain today and for the next month. Make sure you know where everything is and what you have. Someone is trying to con you out of what you’ve worked hard to achieve. It’s not a day to be paranoid. Just a good day to take stock and make sure you have your world properly secured.


Additional Insight:

Many people are still struggling and trying to make ends meet. The lack of security can push people to do things they otherwise would never do. For the next few weeks, make sure you lock your car, conceal your packages and keep an eye on your financial accounts.

Even if you don’t take part in the holiday or season festivities. This time of year isn’t only a celebration for Christians, there are many faiths that observe an event during this time of the year. Even Pagans. That makes it a great time for would be robbers and scam artists too.

It may seem like a tedious extra step. But after a few days of monitoring, you’ll fold the extra precautions into your routine and they’ll all seem like old hat. Listen to the advice you hear on the news. Look around your home to ensure your personal domain is locked and secure. Make an effort to pick up packages at the post office or delivery store instead of leaving them on your porch. There’s a lot of little things you can do to protect your holiday season.

But don’t forget to avoid those holiday donation scams too. If you have a little extra to give this season, make sure who you’re giving too is above-board and is doing what they claim. Beyond that you’ll need to keep an eye on your bank account too. Now is the time to get in the habit of monitoring your account on a daily basis for unusual activity. Knowing exactly how much you have can take the stress out of the financial woes, it can keep you on budget, and it can keep you from falling into a trap of credit/debit card theft. Be vigilant.

It may seem like overkill to some, but the knight is reminding us all that not everyone is kind and compassionate during this season of the year. You don’t have to think everyone is out to get you. But a healthy dose of skepticism is worth keeping your own little world safe and secure.  It will be worth it in the end and you’ll feel better about your little domain in the long run.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Swords

7 of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Nurture your soul and don’t allow the little nitpicking from others to damping your spirit. Fear, anxiety and sadness often form into attacks upon others. So take a deep breath today and try to find something compassionate and kind to say or do for those nitpickers around you.


Additional Insight:

It’s a day to control your emotions and your responses to others. Don’t give up your “power” and allow someone else to manipulate you just because they’re having a bad day, week, month, life, or whatever. You’re not responsible for their sorrows and you can’t fix things for other people. Especially when they don’t want to fix their issues for themselves.

Sometimes it’s take a little extra effort to ignore the way someone is trying to push our buttons and make us angry. But when we remind ourselves that their attacks are coming from a place of self loathing, it might be easier to deflect the insults. Smile and remind them that you’re sorry they’re having a rough day. But they don’t have the right to take it out on you.

By the late afternoon, the heaviness of the day will feel lighter and brighter. You might even have a chance to get into the spirit of the holiday season. No matter what religion you practice, or what beliefs you hold, this time of year exudes joy and compassion. No reason why you can’t spread some of that energy of kindness as well. You just have to make the decision to enjoy the day and not allow anyone else’s bad mood ruin it for you.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Cups

7 of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Take time to reflect on your goals and efforts over the past year. What you have accomplished may not have a lot to do with what was on your list. But you still got a lot done and moved the ball forward. Don’t be down or upset about that. You really had a lot of little successes.


Additional Insight:

Sometimes we make a plan, in our head or on paper, for what we want to do in the coming year. But as life moves through the ethereal, what generally happens are situations to advance our soul’s mission, to learn lessons and pay/redeem karma. Unexpected things often pop up and we’re forced to divert attention from what we thought we were going to do over the coming months of a new year. Leaving us feeling as if we failed or fell short of our goals.

But if you take a step back and look at all you’ve been through, you will see just how much you’ve done and how much you’ve accomplished in facing those challenges and choices. Your surrounded by success, even if you don’t realize it. All those little triumphs in handling this issue, resolving that problem, changing that situation have culminated in a great triumph over the course of the past year.

Now is not the time to be down or fill yourself with doubt. You’re in the seat of flowing abundance that is moving your energy forward to where you need to be for the coming New Year. Walk into that new energy with pride, you’ve earned it. Disregard the nay-sayers who want to put you down or diminish what you’ve been through. You’re still here. You’re not defeated.

Others may not see that you’re fighting the good fight, healing from old wounds and evolving as you walk forward on your path. But they really don’t have to acknowledge how far you’ve come. This is your life to lead, not theirs. This isn’t your life according to them. You don’t need their approval to be who you are. Keep moving and don’t let others hold you back in the muck of yesterday (or decades past). Keep your faith in yourself and the Divine in your life. Your future looks brighter than ever.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Wands – Inverted

Five of Wands - Inv

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It’s ok to be in the dark and away from the hot potato being passed around. You have enough going on to keep you plenty busy. Keep to yourself today, nose to the grind stone and you’ll avoid the fray. It doesn’t really involve you anyway.


Additional Insight:

Passing the buck isn’t really the greatest way to stay out of trouble. And although someone is trying to lay blame on others, know that you’re being protected and insulated from the games going on around you.

Don’t go looking for trouble. You don’t need to get involved, nor will you need to defend yourself. In this situation, you have plenty of allies on your side. Not that you really need them. The person trying to lay blame has a strong reputation for dishonesty and incompetence.

Stick to yourself, hide away in your space and get your own work done. By the end of the day you’ll feel much better about your accomplishments and satisfied with what you marked off your list. You’ll find out what’s been happening, if not today, then next week. So there’s no need to start asking questions and putting yourself into the narrative. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Priestess – Inverted

The Priestess Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Uncover your crystal ball and allow yourself to see the writing on the wall. Pretending that current situations don’t involve you can backfire today. Take control of your future and be open to new adventures and a path that will take care of you  now.


Additional Insight:

Waiting to see what’s going to happen isn’t going to help you right now. You need to be proactive and start looking else where for your bliss. You’ve given what you can and your lessons in this current place have been achieved. Now, you’re needed else where, not only for others you come in contact with. But for your own sake too.

Change isn’t easy, but the green robes of the Priestess remind us that healing is part of today’s message. Make sure that the healing is beneficial, and not held in ego or arrogance as indicated by her gold accents. Righteousness isn’t going to win points with anyone. In fact, it could add strength to the negative forces that are working throughout today’s events. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Pentacles – Inverted

Knight Of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Make sure that what you’re reaching for fulfills your spirit. The last thing you want is to do is sell your soul and the fruits of your labor only for money. That single purpose could be the quickest way to exchange something you love, into a chore you hate. Life is about balance and that can’t be achieved from greed alone.


Additional Insight:

Financial abundance without happiness, good health and someone to share your life with is an empty promise. Success isn’t measured in how much you have in the bank. It’s how well you’ve lived in all areas of your life. It’s not about how many friends you have, it’s about the quality of those friendships.

Take a step back today and evaluate the choices and decisions you’ve been making in the last few months. What has been driving your judgments? If you think you’ve done things you wish you had not done, or said things you wish you could have said differently, than it might be time to re-evaluate your actions. Continue reading
