Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ace of Wands – Inverted

Ace of Wands - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Let the fire that burns deep inside rise up to fuel your ambition for today. Don’t be a mushroom hiding in the dark where no one can see you. You’re intelligent, knowledgeable and experienced. Time to spread your wings and show everyone what you can do.


Additional Insight:

Built up explosions only create chaos and will get you no where. But controlled explosions of energy, begin the process of building something quite amazing. There’s a nay-sayer out there around you today who wants things to not only remain the same, but to go back to the way it used to be. The problem with that attitude is that it destroys the future and no longer works in the world today. But fear is driving their push to tap down the alternatives that will make everything a greater success and more abundant solution for everyone.

It’s been said before on this blog, the only constant in the Universe is change. And Change is inevitable. Either move with the times, work smarter, not harder, or get out of the way not only seems to be the focus, but it’s a heavy roller that will move forward. You might as well try to hold back the tides of the ocean. Change and advancement is not going to stop.

Those around you this week, seem to be fighting hard to hold onto the world they know. They resist change and are reluctant to move into the future, much less in the here and now. While you’re at odds with that view, you still have something to offer that might help those with fear and anxiety. Innovation, imagination and the perspective that it’s not always bad to tear something down from the past. Especially if it’s not working today. Letting go of the old can make way for something that brings light and excitement to your common goal, success!

It’s not a time to stick your head in the sand and pretend the misinformation and false conspiracies aren’t having an impact. While they are mainly distractions, there is a motive behind them. Someone on the outer edges is trying to make a play for power and not for the good of all concerned. Even those sticking to the old ways will be hurt and possibly destroyed in the process. Watch out for those trying to undermine the success in the things around you. Relationships, family dynamics, work and even the social environment you’re involved in. A grab for power and destruction will not last long term. It’s a losing proposition. But one that will create a great deal of strife for those not part of the inner circle.

In some situations, the fight may be tilted on their side. Allow yourself to see the writing on the wall and get out before you’re caught up in something you can’t get out of. As much as your perspective will lead to success for everyone, you can’t force others to change when they refuse to do so. They’re not interested in fairness or justice, only their own self-interests It might be time for some, to let go, move on and watch the fall from the outside. You’ve struggled enough. There’s no reason to go through that anxiety again.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ten of Pentacles – Inverted

Ten of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t work against your own self-interests today. You need to investigate what you’re being told and don’t take the story on face value. No one can manage by rumor and succeed. If you’re so easily riled up, then maybe there’s something else going on within yourself. Stop, look in a mirror and be honest with yourself. Put the emotion aside and investigate the  truth to avoid the self-destruction.


Additional Insight:

It’s easy to get upset over half-truths or misleading information. You really need to make sure that what you’re being told is the whole story and not some attempt to sugar coat the facts and divert attention. Someone around you is trying to save face and prove their version of what’s going on is the real story. The problem is, what you’re being told isn’t accurate and probably isn’t true in any shape of the imagination. Don’t be suckered into their ignorance.

You may have gotten through a battle this week, but the skirmish isn’t over. Not for those who lost. And they’re trying to save face in the aftermath to regain favor. To do that, they need to twist information, blame others and in general con their way back into the good graces of those who steer the ship. The worst thing you can do right now, is buy into their manipulation and propaganda. What seems to be an effort to apologize or reconcile, is just a cover. Don’t buy into it! Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Wands

7 of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You have to work together to get the project done. Enough of the in-fighting and back-stabbing that only spins the wheels in the mud. Whither you like it or not, you succeed together or you go down in flames together. There’s not going to be an in-between.


Additional Insight:

Someone needs to take control and make a plan. That doesn’t mean it’s their plan and everyone has to follow their lead. Everyone has an idea for how to handle the situation. And it’s going to take every suggestion to make the best path toward to success. This isn’t a dictatorship and the “Boss” doesn’t have all the answers. But some might need to be reminded that there are other considerations involved, than just their own.

Don’t be afraid to speak up and play devils advocate. But if you do, make sure you have a solution to plugging the holes you expose. Your best advice is in keeping everyone calm and reminding the team that disagreements aren’t personal. Everyone may be passionate about the topic on the table. Don’t turn that passion into anger when there is none. This is business and everyone’s idea has value. Your solution may only go half the distance, while someone else’s idea can complete your vision and make everything work for everyone. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Four of Swords

Four of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It’s easy to be exhausted after all the fighting you seem to be doing lately. Try to take it easy today. You have a lot of love on your side and someone whose arms you can rest in. If you need a hug, ask for one. Don’t expect others to simply know you need it. They’ll be happy to give it to you.


Additional Insight:

For some, the battles may not be over. For others things have finally come to an end. In either case, you need to take care of yourself with some tender loving healing. Whither it’s a nap, a few moments to sit and stare at the trees or a nice long bath. Whatever it is, take the time to indulge yourself sometime today.

The weeds that remain, can wait for a day. It’s hard to tear them down and think of a solution when you’ve been drained emotionally and physically. Let them sit, it will be ok. But if you can’t relax because of those remaining issues, talk to someone who you have great trust in. Ask them to stand guard for you. Even if it’s just for a few hours to close your eyes. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Cups

Knight Of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be vigilant today and keep an eye on your domain. Someone is trying to encroach on your territory and take over your command. Don’t fall into their trap and start a fight with them. Everyone has a boss and to be a good leader, you must follow the chain of command. The Rules of Engagement are there to protect you, as much as to protect the entire kingdom. Your focus on the greater good, will serve your cause much more than picking a petty fight with a wanna be General.


Additional Insight:

Don’t sit back and just take it. If you’re fuming, you’re allowing a situation to fester that will either destroy you or push you out. Be the fair and balanced leader that remains calm and uses your resources wisely. The over reach by others will be seen as a doubling of effort and expense that will cost everyone more than it should. But you  will need to raise the alarm  with those in charge with a clear and thought out reasoning. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Wands

Knight Of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t be afraid to spread your wings today. It’s going to be a good and successful day. Let your light shine to brighten up those around you. They’ve been feeling very down and in the dark. Let your confidence fill your ambition and pay attention to the details that others often miss. Your self-sufficient diligence will win friends and impress superiors.


Additional Insight:

You maybe traveling on business today, either personal or professional. Spread your wings wide and know you’re being sent to the place you’re needed most. Those who cross your path, need something from you. Not money or financial burdens, but information and insight. You’ll be able to fill a void or resolve a dilemma that has been a long-standing issue.

Don’t rush through the day, there is something in it for you as well. Pay attention to what or who is around you. A knight of the realm isn’t just a fighter or protector, but also gathers information needed back home. So stay alert and listen, more than you talk. For some that might be a challenge, but it’s essential for your mission. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knave of Cups

Knave Of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Happy go lucky is the thought of the day. Your cup is full and blooming to end the week. Time to shine a little, smile and feel the joy that’s around you. Stop looking at the lack and pay attention the abundance you have in your life. It can be a glorious weekend if you do.


Additional Insight:

There’s more to life than the pursuit of the all mighty dollar. And you can have a lot of fun in life with people and things that cost you little to nothing. Stop focusing on the stressful things you don’t have. Look at the wonderful blessings you do have. Focus on that for today and through the weekend. You’re liable to bring more of that positive energy into your life if you do. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Swords

9 of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t get too tied up in the details, you’re liable to miss the benefits of being stuck where you are. You can fight against the challenge, causing harm or opening old wounds. You can ignore your instincts and end up putting yourself in a dangerous or unwanted situation. Or you can take it in stride, trusting that the Divine Universe is trying to keep you safe from harm.


Additional Insight:

Sometimes we think we have to be in a certain place (either physical or mental) in order to complete a task or focus on a project. Today the Divine Universe might be trying to keep you safe from unseen forces that can cause harm. Listen to your gut instincts and follow what it tells you. There’s a reason you’re tied to a place or situation at the moment. Go with the flow and you’ll be able to get through this struggle and reap the benefits. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Wheel of Fortune

Wheel Of Fortune

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You’ve been spinning this wheel for a long time. But maybe you haven’t noticed how much has changed. Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched, but at least notice you have some chickens that can be counted. Struggle isn’t a constant position or a lifetime condition. Unless you allow it to be. Everything changes. It’s up to you to make it change for the better, instead of the worse.


Additional Insight:

Many people who have faced struggle for the past 10 years (since the beginning of the recession), are still struggling. Some have much further to go in order to recover than others have had. And they may feel as though they’ve been forgotten. The wheel is still in motion. It hasn’t stopped for anyone. Things are still changing and evolving.

How they change is totally up to you. If you’re feeling beat down and wore out, you’ll probably make things worse for yourself and those around you. Worrying about it only makes things worse and causes you to suffer twice through the challenges.  Whither it’s financial, emotional, or a health condition, what you think, say and do will dictate what you attract and bring to you. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knave of Pentacles – Inverted

Knave of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You might want to keep to yourself today, to preserve your good mood. Not everyone has your best interests at heart. Many are looking for an easy buck or an unwitting mark to scam. Keep your finances and possessions close to the vest! Don’t share news or information, even with those you think you can trust. Friendships have ended over much less.


Additional Insight:

Pentacles represent the essence of Finances & Debt, Possessions & Trappings, Business & Self Interests. The reverse of today’s fae bring a warning that the darker side of these interests are in play. While you maybe feeling good about your situation, others are not sharing your emotion. So be cautious!

If you have a friend who simply can’t control their spending, tries to live a champagne life on a beer salary, or always wants what others have, that person may not be so trustworthy with knowledge of your current situation. Don’t rub it in, don’t flaunt it and for goodness sake, don’t fall for every sad story you hear! Allowing others to manipulate you over their bad choices is like opening the door to your life and letting them in to take whatever they want, when ever they want with no regards for you or your well being.
