Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Devil

The Devil

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Keep your temper under control today. Don’t allow the foul mood of others to push your buttons. You’re not part of their drama, so don’t get involved simply because they want to take it out on you. Show compassion, let them know it’s going to be ok and then quickly walk away!

Additional Insight:

You may not know what’s going on with someone else, but you can be assured you’re not the cause. So don’t get involved; overlook their emotional lashing out at everyone around them. Try to be calm and let them know you’re sorry they’re having a bad day. Give them a little kindness and compassion. Tell them you know things will be better tomorrow.

If they’re a work or school associate avoid them like the plague for the rest of the day! If they’re a close friend or family member, give them a hug and let them know you care. Don’t force them to talk about what has them upset. But let them know if they need a shoulder, you’re there. And if they do confide in you, remember; keeping a confidence is extremely important in relationships. If they ask for your help to intervene, then perhaps you can share some information. Otherwise…keep your mouth shut!

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

Four of Cups Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Fan the flames and you risk losing everything. Let the pouters pout, let the childish ones act childish. Walk away and go on about your business. Keep your distance if you have to, but don’t feed the fire and add to the heated rhetoric! Avoid the conflict!!

Additional Insight:

Petty distractions will only keep you from doing what needs to be done. Don’t allow the mood of others to spill over into your day and stink up your garden. Let them rant and rave, but don’t allow them to bait you into an argument and pull you down to their level. Their issue isn’t really about you or what you’re doing. They’re simply trying to push your buttons and make you as miserable as they are. Give them the silent treatment today. Avoid their calls and childish actions. Things will calm down tomorrow and you can share some laughs again.
