Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: King of Cups – Inverted

King of Cups Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Stop waiting for someone else to ‘fix things’ for you. The responsibility is yours to manage and control your emotions and your life. No one can make you happy, pull you out of despair or lavish you with abundance. If you want these things, you’re going to have to pull yourself up and get it done. Don’t give up in total despair, you can do this. One moment at a time.


Additional Insight:

It’s up to you to control your emotions. No one can make you feel a certain way, unless YOU allow them to. Blaming someone else for your choice to be sad or feel despair, is like blaming the Sun for a glass someone dropped in a restaurant on the other side of the world. One has nothing to do with the other. You chose your emotions, and it’s time to allow the healing to happen and control your own destiny.

If you wake up in the morning only thinking about how gray and gloomy things are, you’ll never see the Sun sparkle on the morning dew. There is always a silver lining, you simply have to be willing to find it. Make the decision to be happy, to pull yourself out of the rut you’re in and get on with life. Because life isn’t going to wait for you much longer.

You don’t need someone in your life to make you happy. But you’re not going to find someone to share your life with, by sitting at home in the dark. Today and through the weekend, open the curtains to the world outside. Let the Sun shine in and warm your day. If you’re somewhere that makes that impossible, then go outside and feel the warmth on your skin, or the breeze blow across your face. Take a walk in a park, or find a nice bench to rest on as you watch the world in its hustle and bustle. Get involved with something, even if it’s simply helping someone across the street or picking up a bottle for a mother who is overwhelmed and just needs some kindness.

If this state of mind has been going on for a long time now, maybe you should find someone willing to talk to you on a professional level. This isn’t the 1800s, it’s ok to seek mental help from a professional who can give you the pep talks you need, and the tools you can use to turn your thinking around and over come the fog you’ve put yourself into.

If you’re one of the lucky people who feels happy, think about those in your life that you know are having a hard time. Reach out and offer a hand of kindness and caring. Sometimes all someone really needs to turn things around is someone to talk to. Not someone who will judge their emotions or actions, but who will listen and offer ideas or support to help. Sometimes people who have fallen, know what they need to do, but for some reason they don’t feel as though they have the ability to do it. Even if it means simply driving them to a local drug rehabilitation clinic, you maybe offering the biggest hand to save their lives.

Today and through the weekend, make it your mission to either pull yourself up by your bootstraps and turn your life around for the better. Smile and the world will smile back at you. Smile and tell yourself you can be happy and you can move through life with ease and joy. You don’t have to convince the world, you just have to convince yourself.  Take one step, and you’ll be able to walk into a brighter future.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Three of Cups

3 of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It will take a little effort to keep Mind, Body and Spirit together today. Everyone is searching for answers and looking into their tea leaves to find the greater message for the day. But you can’t become overwhelmed, when those answers can’t be found right away. Instead you must look inside and discover the strength to provide compassion and comfort for those who are more lost than you are right now.


Additional Insight:

Everyone handles tragedy and stress differently. Some try to ignore it and pretend it never happened. Others want to avoid it, because facing the aftermath is too hard to face. Some fall apart, cry and cease to function, while others demand answers; only to discover there is no reason to justify what they’re going through. And some will let anger and animosity loose, lashing out from a place of deep sorrow or intense fear, thinking to themselves “there by the grace of god, go I”.

There is a great sense of grief and bewilderment, hovering over the world today, especially in the United States. The energy however is a global one, that feels like it’s coming to a head. Not all for the same reason, but just as powerful as the next story headline, and the next, and so on it goes. Questions are being asked and cries for enough is enough are dominating the conversations. Perhaps this is a tipping point for the world, the hate spreading around the globe may have reached it’s pinnacle.

For this day however, it is not a day to judge others. Put your banner down and quiet your protest for a little while. Hold out a hand and give comfort to those who will struggle through this time of sorrow. Be the person who influences changes and brings some answers to the problem. Instead of proliferating the rhetoric that keeps the ball of negativity rolling down the hill. Eventually that ball can become too big for anyone to handle and it doesn’t care who it rolls over on the way to the canyon floor.

Everyone here at Spring’s Haven and Springwolf Reflections would like to extend our deepest sorrow and sympathy to those impacted by yesterday’s Florida school shooting. May the GreatSpirits bring blessings, energy and healing to everyone as we mourn the loss of innocence once again. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Wheel of Fortune

Wheel Of Fortune

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

The more you tighten your grip, and hold on to the past, the deeper your hole will become. Let go and let the wheel spin again. Whatever happened last year between October and November is over and done with, at least for you. It cannot be changed, nor can you turn it into what you want it to be. Release the anchor and let the Universe start moving once more. It will turn in your favor, if you allow it to.


Additional Insight:

Whither it’s work or personal conflict, it’s not going to change. You didn’t “lose” anything that was of real value. The material things can be replaced, the sentimental things are still held in your memory, every thing else is just a thing. The real value is what you hold within yourself. Cherish it, but stop holding onto what was, it holds you back from your future.

If it’s justice you seek, know that it will come around in the end. Your part in the play has been fulfilled. If it’s love you want, you must release the hold you have on what was, in order to make room for what will be. The Divine Universe is constantly moving and sometimes it needs to push you along and get you out of the missteps you’ve chosen on your own path. Heed the message, you weren’t supposed to be where you were, because there’s a much better place ahead. You just have to turn around and realize that moving forward really is the only way to go.

Today is a day to show some love, kindness and compassion to yourself. Forgive yourself and stop being so critical of the missteps or mistakes you’ve made. It’s ok that you mourned the end of this chapter a little longer than you should. But only if you see that it’s time to close the book and start a new adventure. It’s ok that you allowed your ego to tip the scale to the “dark side” and wanted revenge for the hurt and distress you’ve felt you were put through. It’s ok, you’re human, with human emotions. Accept them, rise above the self victimization and move along.

This afternoon you’ll have a chance balance out that scale and celebrate your new positive outlook. You’ll be able to dream of a new future and allow yourself to feel the excitement of what’s to come. Grasp that opportunity with both hands and reward yourself for doing so. Just keep it within your budget.

By evening, you’ll feel much better about everything. You’ll even have a chance to witness all the other blessings in your life that you’ve forgotten, or that you’ve missed over these past 3 months. It’s not to late to appreciate those things that are still beneficial and important in your life. It’s never to late to show compassion and love. Give it a try. You’re outlook on things will improve tremendously!

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: King of Cups

King of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

If your gut feelings are telling you to be wary, listen to them! Contemplate your moves before you make them. Are you sure you have all the information? Or could someone be attempting to lead you astray? A lot of people are trying to spin the facts to nudge you in their selfish direction. However, their interests are far from the best option in this situation. Do your own research, it won’t take long and you’ll save yourself from a lot of heart ache and unnecessary expense.


Additional Insight:

Being King comes with a lot of responsibility. Listening to advisers doesn’t absolve you of the accountability for your decisions. You can’t rule your domain by general consensus or rumor. If you do, you might as well give up your crown. Being the one in charge means you have to know what’s really going on, in order to make the right final decision. It is incumbent upon you to have all the information you need to decide what’s best for everyone. Including yourself.

By relying on others for information, you can never be totally sure they’re telling you everything you need to know. Even one small piece of information could change the entire situation on the head of a pin. You have the Library of Alexandria at your finger tips. Use it and do your own research (in other words; Google it!). You’ll discover the pros and cons in a matter of moments, as long as you’re relying on legit resources.

Forget about opinions and rely on facts. Always ask “who’s paying for it”. Show me the money and who it’s from, to help you determine the bias behind the results. It’s your responsibility to understand the whole picture and you’ll have to take it seriously. Do a bit of work yourself, to ensure you’re not going out on a limb all alone. Or worse, to ensure you’re not going to make a fool of yourself by spouting a conspiracy theory that has no basis in fact. Align your energies with the Divine force in your life, and ask for guidance in finding the information you need to know.

By evening, put all the game playing aside for a while and let it sit till tomorrow morning. There’s nothing more you can do at the end of the day. Be patient and divert your attention with other projects that demand your attention at home. Focus on some things you’ve been putting off and get those completed, or at least move them along. Give yourself a sense of success and satisfaction that you were able to get something productive done. Even if it was only cleaning the kitchen or sweeping the floors. Tomorrow, things will be much clearer than they are today.

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.
