Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Chariot

The Chariot

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Adventure awaits. You maybe asked to do something you’ve never done before. Use your common sense and decide if this is something that would be good for you, or if you’re being set up to do something you wouldn’t normally do. Don’t allow others to manipulate you for their own means. But don’t allow your own fear to keep you from spreading your wings and flying toward an opportunity that will bring you great accolades. You’ve earned them.


Additional Insight:

You’re going places, but make sure they’re places that you want to go. Whither in personal matters or business, today’s event can lead to big things in either direction on your life path. Make sure it’s leading to a big thing that’s good for you and promotes your life for the better in the long run.

It’s not often we face a situation that has such long reaching and long range effects on our future. Don’t let your emotions get the better of you and refuse or accept an opportunity that will derail your future plans.

You maybe asked to give a talk on a subject that you have great knowledge about. Don’t let fear and self doubt keep you from accepting that invitation. You maybe asked to talk with someone who is going through a tough time and your insight and compassion might be what they need to pick themselves up and face the challenges in their life. Or you maybe asked to shed your inner morals and do something you wouldn’t otherwise do. Going ahead and allowing peer pressure to give up those morals might create a reputation that you don’t want and you won’t be able to shed. (Kids – keep your pants zipped; there’s life long consequences to giving in to your hormones, even if there isn’t a pregnancy involved!)

There’s a time and place to everything in life. And even the good things that cross your path can come with choices. Make sure you’re ready to make the right choice that promotes the vision of your future path and not the one that can destroy it.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Wands –

Five of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Magik and creativity share the message to: Give yourself a break. There’s enough people getting upset over things that are out of their control. They’re not directing their frustration at you. Why do you keep taking it on and piling on top of what isn’t yours to begin with? Step out of the shadows and stop thinking everything is on your shoulders and your responsibility. You owe it to yourself.


Additional Insight:

You’re putting out so much of yourself to others and not being compensated fairly for the effort. You can choose not to do it any more, or calmly express your position in hopes others will understand how they’ve been taking advantage of you. If they don’t, you have a decision to make. Don’t make it lightly.

The worst thing people do is under-value their own self-worth. Stop listening to the nay-sayers and replaying the negative comments in your head. Those messages are not for you, they are reflections of what those doing the talking feel about themselves. Give the message back to them and let them carry their own baggage.

This weekend, put yourself first. Spend time relaxing, catch up on some sleep, go for a drive and allow yourself to have a spontaneous adventure. Set some time aside for meditation, updating your grimoire or your journal. Do something for the inner you as well as the physical you.

Don’t be afraid to say “no” if someone asks you to do something you really don’t want to do. It’s ok to say “no”. If they get upset, let them know their expectations of you are on them. You have the right to put yourself first, even if it’s only now and then.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Fool –

The Fool

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Roll the dice and play the part of the fool. Now is not the time to take chances and act or react on a whim. Not everyone has your best interest at heart. Make sure you know what you’re getting into. Don’t allow others to pressure you and do your own research! You are the one who is accountable for your choices, not someone else. So take charge and don’t be afraid to say “No and that’s it!”


Additional Insight:

You are ultimately accountable for your actions. Don’t let your desperation cloud your judgement and allow you to be pressured into something that isn’t intended to be good for you! Be cautious of the ulterior motives of others who claim to be experts, or have a sure fired bet! They’re not interested in helping you, they’re interested in controlling you for their own selfish gains.

It’s ok to say “No”, and if they get upset; that should be your clue that something isn’t right with this. If they up their forceful pressure; don’t be afraid to say “No and that’s enough”! Then use your own control and walk away from their manipulation. You can do this! And for today, it may be vitally important that you do!
