Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Swords

9 of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Even during stress and strife there’s a silver lining. Look for the higher purpose and find the strength behind its message to endure. How you perceive your situation depends on how wounded you will allow yourself to become. You can be restricted, or you can be harmed on a deeper level. The choice is up to you.


Additional Insight:

Everyone faces trials and trauma of some sort during their life. How you allow those situations to affect you will determine how deep their hurt cuts into your being. If all you see is despair, the deeper the wounds will be. But when you can rise above and see the bigger message, the easier it is to keep the deep cuts at bay.

It’s hard to do at the moment of tragedy. Everyone deals with trauma in different ways. Some dig deep, put the emotions aside and find the strength to endure and keep moving. While others allow the emotions to overwhelm them and keep them on their knees. Unable to see past the tragedy to what can be and how things will change.

By understanding the phases of grief, we can work our way through each traumatic situation in our lives, big and small, and move forward with strength and courage. The only real constant in the Divine Universe is that things change. How they change, how quickly they change, is entirely up to you.

Stop wallowing in self pity and get off your butt and get moving again. Remember someone in the world always has it worse than you. No matter how bad you think your situation is, someone else is going through something far worse and still fighting to move forward. If they can do it, you can too! Believe in yourself. Lean on the Divine Spirit you have in your life when things get tough. Pull what energy you need from that Divine presence in your life and you’ll find the energy to get up and get moving. You can do this! You simply need to take the first step.

Dealing With Trials & Grief
Going through trials and trauma are not easy for anyone. The key is to not allow the past and actions of others to control you now or your future. We can’t go back and change the things we went through. But we can learn from them and heal ourselves in the process. My motto is: “You cannot change the past. You can only change the way you allow the past to affect your present and your future.” – Click the link to read more.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Cups

Nine of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Practice what you preach and show compassion to someone in need. A little hug can go a long way to helping someone making it through tough times. We all need to feel connected and part of something. So when someone lashes out at you for no reason, it could be because they’re struggling with something greater than you may know.


Additional Insight:

You don’t have to know details about what others are going through. They may not even want to share for fear of ridicule or threats to their position. But it doesn’t take being nosy to show someone compassion.

A simple touch of the shoulder, caress of the hand or arm can work as well as a hug. You can promote healing and empower them to get through one more day. You can also help yourself.

Practicing what you preach brings positive energy back to you as well. You can’t talk a good talk and then not back it up with actions. So if you’re talking bad about someone, putting others down because of their differences, think about how that works against your own self interests.

If you want to be accepted for who and what you are, then you must practice those words toward others in your life. If you walk with a scowl on your face through the halls; how are you inviting smiles of acceptance from others. Think about how you act and how others treat you and you may find areas where you need to change your own attitudes. Maybe the one who needs the hug is you.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Cups

Nine of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t expect others to know you care simply by being present. It’s not the words that say I care, it’s the actions. Take some time to let those around you know you care about them and what they’re going through. Or you’re glad they’re in your life to share your experiences. Do something to back it up, because someone in your life is feeling neglected and under appreciated.


Additional Insight:

It’s the little things we do each and every day that show someone we care about them. Not the one or two big things we do once a year in February, or on an anniversary, or birthday.

Fixing her a cup of coffee in the morning and serving it with a kiss on the cheek. Putting a special snack in his brief case with a special note attached that says you’re thinking of him. Picking up their favorite drink at the gas station when you fill up on the way home. It’s the little things that remind others you’re glad they’re in your life.

But in this month of love, don’t forget that special someone isn’t the only person in your life. Those you work with might like to know they’re appreciated too. You can pick up a fruit platter on your way into work for a morning treat. Of course a box of donuts will do too. Or take your team out for lunch and say thanks for the help on this project, or that holiday display.

Sometimes the biggest gift you can give is some undivided attention. Actually listen to someone when they need a friend to talk to. Let them vent and get it out, so they can feel as if someone out there cares enough to “hear”. Put down the cell phone and stop texting other people when you’re with them. It’s not only respectful, it might also make someone feel like you actually want them around.

Think of the little things you wish someone would do for you, then turn around and do it for someone in your life. You might be surprised at how often your kind gestures will come back to you in return.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Wands

Nine Of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be patient while things are tied up. If you try to go to fast, you’re liable to over commit and destroy the opportunities ahead. Be patient and let the Divine Universe manifest what’s right for you in the right time and place. Wait for what you need, instead of pushing for what you want. Allow the wands you have created to work their magik.


Additional Insight:

Patience is the one virtue that often gets us into trouble. People who work hard on their dreams to manifest can often times look for short cuts, or push too hard before everything is ready. And then they struggle to hold everything together.

Be calm and find patience through out your day. Make a list of what needs to be done and then take the time to do it. Don’t rush through the projects, or keep calling others to ask them what their status is. You impatience can push people away and destroy opportunities that you may not even see today.

Wands show us the magik in our creative nature. You have spent a lot of time infusing your dreams with creative energy. Now is the time to allow the magik you created to work into its proper manifestation. Give the Divine Universe its chance to mold your dreams into reality for what you need and what can and will sustain you into the future.

Nine Of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

In nine days you’ll be able to rest a little. Until then don’t give up! Things that are worth fighting for are also worth the energy you put into it. Don’t allow the anxiety and tension to drain your ability to focus and stick to the plan. The more you worry about the situation, the more you’ll waste both time and energy on what needs to be done. Be patient with yourself. You’re doing what you can and what needs to be done. Stop trying to be the super hero.


Additional Insight:

Magik and creativity are in the air. Now is the time to focus on your connection to spirit and fall back on your beliefs and spiritual connections. Both physical and ethereal. Wands help us see the Divine light around us and teach us ways to use that magikal energy in our daily lives. So stop trying to be the super hero who does everything on their own and by their self. Call upon your spiritual connections for assistance. Take time to sit down, draw out your spiritual circle, go to your spiritual sanctuary through meditation and ask the Divine force in your life to help you focus your consciousness mind and align it with your super-consciousness. Ask for assistance in seeing the solution, implementing it through each physical action you make and establishing what needs to be done.

Trying to do everything on your own doesn’t make you more sufficient it merely makes you less available to those in your life who need and want to be with you. Being the super hero is a lonely job. By its very nature you can’t put your faith in others or trust others with your biggest secret. There’s no one to rely on and no one to call on for help in this world.

You are not from another planet or another realm. You are here, in the now, of this world. And you are part of a community. Why are you fighting so hard to be on the outside looking in?

The next weeks of this month are very important to pagans. We see these days as the time when the spiritual veil lifts from our physical world and we become closer to the ethereal realm. There no better time than the next few weeks to bring your inner spirit closer to that realm of Divine understanding and wisdom. Find the community that fits your ways and provides you with a plethora of new friends and friendships.

~~~~~~~~~

We have been working hard to complete our mission to help those who have asked us for assistance. Our campaign is coming to a close soon and we’re still in need of help from you and our spiritual community. We can’t be more thankful to those who have been able to help us in our mission. But we have a long way to go to bringing this into reality. In the next 14 days, we need to raise $300 to met the first goal of our campaign. While we’d like to fund the entire project, we believe that even half of that will make a big difference.

If you have found benefit from the daily tarot message, the response to an email question, or from the information in one of my articles, you can say thanks and give something back by participating in our campaign to help us help others.

If you need a hug, ask for one. Don’t assume others can read your mind and should simply know how you feel. Sharing a hug is an exchange of healing energy, compassion and can give someone a lift when they’re feeling down. It’s also a sign of honor and appreciation. If you have received a great gift or service, don’t be afraid to say thanks with a hug. You may make someone’s day.


Additional Insight:

Remember when you give a hug, you’re getting one back. The importance of human touch has been documented for decades, maybe even centuries. We all need some form of human contact to maintain mental health and stability. And on some level, physical health as well.

Sharing a hug with someone who seems down or is struggling with challenges in life can let them know they’re not alone. While you may not be able to solve their problems, you can give them a place to look toward for advice or even simply a person who will listen and let them blow off steam.

When someone does something really nice for you, a hug can let them know you value their gift and you’re honored by their thoughts of or for you. It may not be something you can do with everyone. Some work situations may not be appropriate or could cause issues. But you can ‘give a hug’ with words and say how much you appreciate what they have done for you.

Show others that you value their friendship and consideration. Give a hug today.

Just cause you’re feeling tied up today, doesn’t mean you can’t take a moment to enjoy the little beauties in life. One of them might be bringing you a long awaited gift. Don’t ignore everything for the sake of the all mighty dollar; it really isn’t worth it. You’ll miss out on those special moments and eventually you’ll realize they’re gone forever. It’s true what they say; you never realize what you have, until it’s gone.


Additional Insight:

Don’t strangle your thoughts and tighten your focus on the work that’s before you. The relationships in your life also require effort, attention and work on your part. Make room for those who are important to you too.

Whither it’s taking a moment to look your child in the eyes and hear a story they have to share. Or giving a hug to that special someone to let them know you love them and care about them. It doesn’t take that much time to do, nor does it take that much effort.

It can also benefit the work you’re trying to get done. Those little moments of distraction help you clear your mind, and release the stress that builds up during the day. When you come back to the work; you can see it with fresh eyes and see the mistakes, or find the solutions to the problems that have plagued you all day.

Not to mention, it may keep those who care about you from feeling neglected, ignored and not worthy of your time or attention. You maybe working hard to keep those loved ones fed, clothed and warm. But material things aren’t the only items they need. They need you too.
