Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Queen of Swords – Inv

Queen of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Listen to your own tune amidst the struggle and strife around you. Everyone seems to be on edge today, so don’t add to the tension or worry. Search for your own space and surround yourself with the things you love. Your music will sooth the soul and the day will eventually come to a quiet end.

Additional Insight:

There maybe a lot of yelling, anger and animosity today. Like yesterday, there’s no reason to get involved. None of this concerns you and none of this is about you. So continue your effort to be the peaceful beacon that shines with hope. All this “in fighting” will come to an end. Maybe on a gradual scale, but it will come to an end.

The important message today is to make sure you don’t become baited into the fray. Others might try to unload their side of the story on you. That’s ok, if they came to you. Let them vent. But don’t let them drag you into the battle. You’re only hearing one side of that story and frankly you have no idea of knowing if that side is true, or only what they want to you hear.

Compassion is something you can offer without giving advise. Be understanding, be kind and show others that someone is willing to listen. Even if you’re not going to do anything about it. But make sure you keep the confidence and say nothing about what you were told! Spreading the rumor could cause you more harm by serving someone else’s interests.

By the end of the day, you’ll be able to shed the stress of being around turmoil and angst. Give yourself time to shut down, unwind and shed all that negative energy. Clear both your soul and your senses with something that brings you laughter. Watch a comedy, read the comics or find some funny cat videos on YouTube. Do something to bring laughter into your evening and tomorrow will be a better day.

Turn The Frown Upside Down

“Happy Wolf” – Photographer Unknown

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

In times of stress and anxiety it’s easy for people to become overwhelmed with their own emotions of fear or sadness. Worry may dominate your thoughts from morning to night. Fear can take hold and change your focus from what you want to accomplish in a day, to pulling in more fear and anxiety. It becomes a snowball that grows and grows until it seems to overwhelm everything in your life.

We all go through it. We all get caught up in the latest bad news. But sometimes it seems there’s nothing good to see anymore and everything is just getting worse and worse. It’s hard to break that cycle at times, and that’s when we need to ask for help. There’s nothing wrong with talking to someone about that downward spiral of emotions. Try to remember “that feelings are real but they aren’t reality” (Dan Harmon, 2017 – This is a great story reported in the Washington Post about author Dan Harmon’s twitter response to a fan. It’s really worth the read!)

On January 9th, 2014 a message for the Daily Tarot Meditation share some insight into what the average person might do to turn things around. It involves laughter. In a world that seems to be filled with fear, anxiety and angst it might be a good time to remember Life is about Balance. That means we can choose to dwell in despair or we can laugh in the face of adversity as needed. We don’t have to choose to be low and glum allowing the angst of the world around us dominate how we choose to feel. Here is an excerpt from that day 2014 reading. Continue reading
