Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Lovers – Inverted

The Lovers - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Relationships aren’t all peaches and roses, you have to work at it. Pay attention to your thoughts today. Are you allowing your own frustrations with other situations to get in the middle of your most important relationship? Be careful you’re not letting things fester and infect something you rely on and have always wanted in your life. You could be throwing away something marvelous.


Additional Insight:

Even the best relationships have moments of hurt feelings, anger and irritation. Don’t allow today’s throw away society to destroy something you love, just because you think it’s not ideal. You’re not perfect, and you’re never going to be perfect. So stop holding someone else up to a perfect model that they’re never going to be able to live up to.

Relationships are a two-way street that require respect and consideration on both sides. Don’t hold someone else accountable for going against your wishes, if you’ve never told them what you need in the first place. If you can’t communicate what you need, or what you like, then how is someone else supposed to know? Use your words, calmly and without anger and hatefulness.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is shut up and walk away until you calm down. But never saying anything about how you felt, does a disservice to your partner. They can’t read your mind, anymore than you can read theirs. If you have a problem, you have to calmly speak up and explain your position. But never start that sentence with “You made me feel like”, no one can make you feel anything. Your emotions are your choice. You’re much better off starting that statement with, “When you did this, I felt like that” and take ownership of your own emotions.

All relationships are work. If you’re getting annoyed over all the little things someone does, and blowing them out of proportion in the scheme of things, then perhaps there’s a bigger problem at hand. But you’re not going to find out, unless you’re willing to speak up. The world isn’t here to cater to you. Life is about balance and that means it’s about the give and take in any relationship. Take some time to check what you’re bringing in the door and what you should be leaving outside your home. The person close to you is trying very hard to make you happy. Make sure you’re appreciating the gesture and putting in the same consideration for them.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Sun – Inverted

The Sun - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Let the Sun shine in today and get out of the gloom and doom attitude. Today many of your projects are on fire with success. From the little things you’ve just started, to the big things you’ve been working on. It seems like everything you touch today will turn to gold. Enjoy the glory!


Additional Insight:

After months of struggle, challenge and hard work, you should see the success of all your efforts come into manifestation. It’s a day to let your star shine bright and revel in the success. Just make sure you count all your chickens after they’ve hatched. No need to jump ahead in the book, there’s more to come in the months ahead. So stick to your plan and your budget.

That doesn’t mean you can’t have a little celebration this afternoon or on the weekend. You’ve waited for this day for a long time and it’s finally here. Set the stress and anxiety aside and be happy that you’ve finally overcome the barriers and can move forward to the brighter future you deserve.

Putting the past to rest, is the best thing for you. Doing so has brought you to this point and this chapter in your life.  But if you’re still holding onto past grudges, this day might be just another day, a good day, but just another day. Remember living well is the best revenge.

Living well also allows you to let go of the past and release the left over anger you may still be holding onto. Use today or some time this weekend, to put all that to rest once and for all. While you’re on a high note, you’ll find it easier to release the negative thoughts or emotions. And maybe the gratification of knowing that you succeeded where the nay-sayers thought you could never reach, will help out a bit too.

This evening, make time to celebrate in a more intimate setting with those close to you. They’ve been there with you and for you every step of the way. This is as much their victory as it is yours, so spread the glory and the joy. Just remember everything in moderation. Partying to excess can change everything on a dime and stir up new unwanted challenges. Live well, but live smart!

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Death – Inverted

Death Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t Panic! This isn’t the final journey, it’s only the end of this leg of your travels. Holding onto those final emotions of fear and anxiety work against your efforts to be free. Welcome the closure and prepare for the changes that have been in the works for the past thirteen months. Opportunity and excitement await.


Additional Insight:

Everything must come to an end sometime. Holding onto the old only keeps you hidden in the darkness of fear. The demon you know is better than the ones you don’t know, is a mentality that creates a void in your life. Continue that thought process and the Divine Universe will fill that void, whither you want it or not. And sometimes, what you receive comes in the form of karmic lessons that need to be learned.

What’s done is done and you can’t bring it back to life. Nor should you want to. The skeletons hidden beneath the surface will not remain silent forever. But there’s nothing you need to do to set them free. When the time is right, they’ll rise up and expose the darkness for what it is. But it doesn’t need your help in rising up from the dead.

Everything happens in its right time and place. As you passed through this chapter, you helped give credence to tales of those who came before you. That information was not lost or discounted. At least not by those who have the ultimate position of handing out justice. So let your part in the tale, come to an end. Rise above the fray and walk away. There’s no reason for you to be the target of such negativity any more. It’s a classic case of “Let go and Let God”.

If you given in and accept that your part in the play has ended, you’ll be able to relax by evening. The first essence of relief can come your way and the weight that’s been holding you back can release it’s shackles. It’s not your problem now, so there’s no need to carry the baggage for anyone else. Take a little time to clear out anything that keeps you connect to the story. Box it up, give it away, store it somewhere safe, but outside of your home. Push it out of your existence and free up the garbage that’s blocking your way forward. Tomorrow is a new day and it can be as bright as you want it to be.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Wands

Nine Of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

While you’re constantly thinking that the other shoe is going to drop, you’re actually creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. Knock it off! You maybe feeling tided down and exhausted today. But it’s from your own doing. You don’t have to do everything on your own.  You’re liable to weaken your immune system and open the door to catching a cold, or worse, the flu. Stop feeling like everything is on your shoulders alone. It’s not.


Additional Insight:

You’ve become so used to carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, that you still think you have to bear that burden. You don’t, because the burden was already resolved and you saved the day. Exhaustion isn’t something that works in your favor, so stop worrying.

Everything IS ok. You’ve past the point of “it’s going to be ok” several months ago. You’ve moved into the recovery period. But you can’t seem to let go of the thoughts from the past and the burdens that were piled on your shoulders.

No matter what the issue, physical, mental, emotional, financial, whatever, you’ve crossed the mountain top. No more climbing needed. Now you’ll need to catch your thinking up to the new dynamic in your life. Let go of the worry and sense of being overburdened. That worry is making you weary and the response is going to cause other problems you don’t need to walk through. 

You clawed your way through the trials and struggles. You’ve been pushed in new directions and placed in new positions. Some of this may have been a course correction of spirit. Some of it maybe your own karma at work to improve your conditions and to help you fulfill your spiritual mission. Some of it may not have been in your hands at all. But you’ve learned a lot, about yourself, about the people you can trust and about those who truly have your back when the bottom drops out. Those are the people you’ll need to help up one day.

Relax, let go of the unnecessary stress. You’re creating issues where there is nothing there to see. Adjust your perspective concerning how far you’ve come and exactly where you want to get back to. Are you sure, the destination you envision is the place you want to go? Because the place you left, didn’t seem to work out for your best interests.

Perhaps it’s time to rethink your ultimate goal and open the doors a little wider this time. Be open to new and even greater things than what you’ve been thinking about. Going back to where you were isn’t the answer. You deserve better and you can achieve it. If you let go of the anchor holding you back.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Magician

The Magician

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

With all the tools at your disposal, you’ll be able to keep all your projects afloat. Don’t worry so much about getting things done. You’re on track and keeping things moving forward. While everyone else is in an exaggerated panic, you can keep the actual work in perspective and headed to its successful conclusion.


Additional Insight:

Success comes from being prepared for any situation. It’s knowing what issues are hype or hysteria and which are serious problems. Don’t waste your day chasing the ghosts, created by someone else out of fear and a lack of experience. They’re in a panic because they have no idea what’s really going on. Be the leader and reassure everyone that things are fine and under control. No need to worry.

Even if there are real issues to be dealt with, you have everything you need to correct the problem. These aren’t band-aid solutions, but real fixes. Give yourself credit for understanding the dilemma and finding the right tool to resolve the minor bumps, as well as, the big conflicts. It’s not going to be the rough day that others want to make it out to be. Ignore their need for being the center of a drama and trying to create a mountain out of a mole hill.

By this evening, you’ll be able to relax. So kick back and put your feet up. Leave the outside world at your front door and be careful you’re not bringing anything negative into your home. While you might be able to direct your day through the made up conflict, others around you may not be so lucky. Step in, share a hug, an “it’s going to be ok”, and do something nice to help out. Then everyone will be able to relax and enjoy the calm serenity.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Fool – Inverted

The Fool Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

This is not your day to play the fool, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a ray of sunshine. The best revenge is living well, and being happy in the face of fear and anger. So while someone is trying to ruin your day, remember how good you’ve got it. You have everything they don’t have, and on top of that, you’re happy, footloose and fancy free today.


Additional Insight:

You’re surrounded by the things or people who bring you happiness. Maybe you received good news or a gift over the weekend that lifted your spirits. Maybe it was just a few good moments with family or friends that have given you a long lasting effect. Whatever it was, let it keep your spirits high throughout the day. You deserve to feel good and dance in the light of success.

In the meantime, someone who isn’t as fortunate and who is resisting the healing opportunities being offered, lurks in the shadows. Pay them no mind. You don’t have to do anything to help their karmic debt along. The Divine Universe has all that well in hand. They want you to be sad or scared and looking over your shoulder every few minutes. It’s not necessary, they have no control or power any longer. They can’t hurt you, especially if you don’t give them the power to do so.

Live well, be happy, and take things in stride today. The more you meet conflict head on with calm thoughtful compassion, the easier it will be to resolve the issues of pretense. While others maybe claiming disaster and screaming that the sky is falling, you know it’s just hype and distraction. Stay focused and don’t let others turn your attention away from your task at hand. Or you can ease the worries of those who are getting caught up in the game. Explain why these made up worries don’t matter and why everything is still under control and moving forward. But do it with calm serenity, not gloating arrogance. Stay focused on the issues, not the person trying to cause the problems. If you’re not worried by the fool, others won’t be either. And their game will continue to fail.

By evening, you’ll be walking with a smile and little bounce in your step. Satisfied in the knowledge that you won the day and everything is alright. Relax and enjoy yourself. Take a walk, play a game, but totally disconnect from the day’s tribulations. They’re not important and there’s no reason to rehash them all night long. Give yourself an opportunity to laugh and maybe lift the spirits of someone close to you, who might have been pulled into their version of the “nothing drama” of the day. It’s easier to laugh at the fools, than to allow their actions to turn on you and sucker you into their game.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Four of Pentacles

4 of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Keep an eye on what’s yours and be careful who you turn your back on. Someone is trying to take what you have. Not because they need it, but because they’re angry. That might mean you’ll have to get someone in authority involved. Whatever you do, don’t give in and don’t feel sorry for them. They made their choices and taking it out on you, isn’t going to fix them.


Additional Insight:

Whither it’s tough love or some situation at work, lashing out at others for mistakes you’ve made is never going resolve any situation. Sometimes that kind of short-sighted spite can be worse than just making another bad choice. You’ve put up with a lot in the last four years and sometime you simply have to let go and let “god”. It’s out of your hands.

Now that you’ve finally got a little extra in your pantry, you’ll have some time to relax and breathe. Don’t let someone else’s anger ruin that for you. You’ve faced your fears, over come your trials and you’re finally getting things moving in your favor. All that hard work deserves some respect and admiration. Even if you’re the only one recognizing the accomplishment.

Put your foot down today and for the remainder of the weekend, relax and enjoy life for a bit. Walk among the trees, sit on a park bench and feed the birds. Take a drive and explore the world. Don’t over due it though. These next few days are your opportunity to pack in some extra sleep, recoup your energy and let go of stress. By Monday, things will start to get back to normal.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Star

The Star

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

The dry spell is over and it’s time for abundance to come flowing in. Your search for answers and hard work will pay off today. Enjoy the cool waters that cut through the red tape, break down barriers and take you on a wondrous journey that meanders past the nay-sayers. Your own star will guide the way for others to discover their own journey.


Additional Insight:

Water represents many things around the world. In Alchemy it’s the symbol of love and fertility. In Feng Shui, flowing water is the sign of  wealth and prosperity. It’s nearly always represented by the color blue and flowing water is always better than still water that can become stagnate.

Sometimes to keep the water of abundance flowing you have to keep working, slow and steady. You can’t cut corners, or try to rush the tide. That can have a disastrous effect on your boat and the surrounding scenery. It can create chaos, destruction and divert the river from it’s intended course.

Water is a malleable element, it can bend and mold itself into any shape as you try to contain it. Over time it can chip away at the things blocking its way, breaking down barriers and making new paths in the landscape ahead. It can be as powerful as any unstoppable force, even when it’s gently making its way through a rocky valley.

Today is your time to go with the flow and let it take you to where you need to be. Fighting the gentle push has kept you in the dark or struggle for too long. Relax, let go. You’ve asked for the changes that bring your life to an easier journey. Ok, here it is. Let the Divine force move you along. For some that might be saying good-bye to people who are no longer moving with you. For others it may mean an inevitable move needs to take place. Just know you’re going to be ok. Let the water of love and abundance take you to where you need to be. The change is necessary to continue the journey forward.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Devil – Inverted

The Devil - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Bad influences are trying to hold on for dear life. Sometimes you just have to turn your back on the old, and say good-bye. You’ve overcome so much, don’t give into temptation now. The easy road might bring success for a short time. But in the long run, you’ll pay a hefty price for compromising your values and integrity.


Additional Insight:

Someone is trying to pressure you into doing something you know you shouldn’t do. Contemplate the cost of their offer. Make sure you’re willing to give up the things you’ll be forced to let-go of if you give in now. The odds are not in your favor to escape scott free. And you won’t be able to claim “the Devil made me do it”. The result of your decision could destroy everything you hold dear.

Letting go of things that aren’t good for you isn’t easy. Especially if it’s something or someone you love. But you can’t save others from their bad choices and you can’t learn the lessons for them. If they won’t recognize the consequences of their own actions. To save yourself, you may have to walk away and focus on you and yours.

The anger they will feel is theirs to bear. You have no reason to feel guilty or ashamed for doing the right thing. You put in the effort to help, over and over again. Or you’ve made it clear many times that you’re engaging in their behavior. But they keep dragging you down to their level. If you want things to be different, you’re going to have to make the hard choice and accept that changes are needed to get out from under this cloud of negativity. Do it for yourself. Because you do deserve better.

Additional Reading

As I was reading today’s card, I had an overwhelming feeling this message is for those dealing with the opioid crisis. That may not be the message for you. But for those who might fall into this situation, maybe someone who is addicted, someone struggling to get clean or those watching a love one suffer from the yo-yo effects of their addiction. If that scenario fits you or your life,  you don’t have to go it alone.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knave of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It’s ok to have your cake and eat it too. You’ve worked hard to climb out of a bad situation. And you’re not in the same situation you used to be in. So stop looking at things around you today, in the same way you used to. Things have changed for the better and you need to change your perspectives along with them.


Additional Insight:

You’re not the naive person you once were. You’ve gone through trials and traumas that have educated your sensibilities and brought wisdom to your path forward. You know which mistakes not to make again and you know what behaviors work against your best interests. Knowing all that, you need to change your perspective about how you’re handling your choices and finances today.

Someone wants you to come and play like you used to. Don’t allow them to guilt you into the simple pleasures without care or concern. If this person can’t appreciate what you’ve been through, then they may not be the best person for you to be around just now. They’re an anchor of the past that you may need to let go of, so that you can continue moving forward. If they truly care about you and your well-being, they would understand your reluctance to indulge in their childish whims at your expense.

Stick to your plans and budget. No, it’s not as fun and it makes you seem like a “party-pooper” to your old crowd. So what. You have a goal to achieve. You have a future you’re planning for, that is within your grasp. The changes you’ve made have not been easy, but you’ve made them none the less. Don’t throw that all away for one afternoon of throwing caution to the wind. It’s not worth it!

This evening will come in its usual pace and you’ll be able to see the bullet you dodged earlier in the day. Be proud of yourself for resisting the urge. Be thankful that you weren’t caught up in the aftermath that some of your friends face now. The results might be enough to finally push them to rock bottom and cause them to finally make some necessary changes in their lives. If not, be aware of the pleas for help. It’s not your place to dig them out of the hole they got into. Sometimes the best thing you can do for a friend, is say No. And walk away.
