Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Swords

7 of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Nurture your spirit with strength and respect for all those around you. Don’t judge a book, person or situation by it’s cover. The truth is on the inside and in the details. Make sure you employ critical thinking when confronted with all situations and you’ll be able to find your way out of the negative actions of the crowd.

Additional Insight:

Swords represent Strength & Weakness, Endurance & Struggle, Respect & Animosity.

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the emotions of the crowd. It can be easy to allow others to manipulate your feelings, especially if it relates to something you’re passionate about. But inflammatory headlines or information designed to solicit knee jerk reactions often don’t tell the truth or purposefully twist facts to attain a specific and often undermining response.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Six of Cups

Six of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It’s a magikal day, so don’t waste time. Contemplate on the successes you’ve had this year. You’ve accomplished a lot more than you’re giving yourself credit for. Enjoy it. And take a little time to be confident and allow your experience to take control of any bump in the road.

Additional Insight:

Euphoria is in the air today. Don’t let it slip by with being blue. Make the choice to be happy and feel blessed. Your garden is in bloom, and you can take a little time to rest and relax. Look into your crystal ball and let your mind wander in dream and vision. Even if it’s only for 5 minutes. The only one putting stress and strain on your day, is you.

When you’re calm, work on the tasks you have on your plate. But don’t let deadlines rush you into anxiety again. You’ll get more done by being calm and allowing yourself to think about the here and now. If you’re constantly worried about tomorrow, you’ll divert your attention from what needs to be done today.

Live in the moment.
Worrying about tomorrow diverts your attention from today.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Pentacles

Seven of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Abundance is all around you. Stop focusing on the lack and see the blessings that are right in front of you. Financial abundance is helpful and necessary to some degree. But it means nothing if you have no one to share it with. Make sure you give quality time to what really matters in your life.

Additional Insight:

It’s hard struggling from day to day and it can drag you down into a cloud of negativity. No one likes to be the person who has to always say “No”, when someone else asks for something. The burden is on the person who takes care of the books. If that’s not you, count your blessings that you’re not the one everyone else gets angry with.

Abundance comes in many forms within the Divine Universe. Be Mindful of what you’re creating within your domain. Love, family, friends, health, along with those material necessities are just as important as the financial abundance many focus on. Remember how we think creates our day and draws the same thoughts into our lives. If you focus on lack, that’s all you will find in your day. Time to change your thinking. Continue reading

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

Eight of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft1`

You may feel tied up in the details, but don’t worry. They’re not the sticking points that will limit your options or choices. Trust in your experience and knowledge. You’ll be able to spread your wings by the afternoon and overcome the obstacles that are in the way.

Additional Insight:

Swords are a sign of Confidence and Strength, or struggle and animosity. Keep your frustrations in check today as you work through the problems that present themselves. There maybe a lot of little problems, or one big thorn in your side. But you have what it takes to handle it all and come out smelling like a rose.

Like the past few days, there’s a lot of tension in the air and it’s spreading around you. You don’t need to add to it by allowing your emotions to get the best of you. Take everything in stride and keep your reactions in check. Even that sigh of frustration could set someone off in a negative way, with the roof caving in on you. Continue reading

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.

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!) Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Cups

Knight Of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Stay vigilant, do your duty and keep your eyes peeled. There is much going on today, causing distraction and muddying the waters. Don’t get caught up in the sleight of hand attempts to divert your attention from what’s really important. Doing so could cause you a great many problems on your own door step.

Additional Insight:

While others are in turmoil today, they’re doing everything they can to alter the truth. If you allow yourself to be baited into their fight, you will lose much of what you have gained over the past 6 years. Keep to yourself, and stay in your place. This isn’t a time to bring war to your door.

You only have to worry if the battle enters your domain or the arrows come flying in your direction. Don’t rush out defend your borders. Those “in charge” will reign in the foes and pull them back to where they belong. Continue reading
