Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing – The Chariot – Inverted

The Chariot - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t turn your world upside down out of anger. Knee jerk reactions are never a good idea and they have not done you any great service in the past. You may discover what you became angry at isn’t accurate, or isn’t the whole truth. Set your anger aside and wait until you calm down before you put any actions into place. Patience and walking away until you calm down is the better course of action today.

 


Additional Insight:

You may already be living with the consequence of reacting to a situation first, instead of thinking it through. Don’t make that mistake again. Allowing your emotions to rule your path, whither it’s out of anger or from being overjoyed, can hide important details from your view. Details that if you had paid attention to them, would have altered your decisions.

Take off the rose colored glasses, or give yourself time to let the anger subside. Think things through, make sure you understand what consequences can occur and then decide if you’re willing to live with those choices. If your choice affects others in your life, make sure you talk to them first. They may not be in agreement and you may lose more than you bargained for.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Pentacles

9 Of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Show compassion, caring and love to the child within. Don’t be so hard on yourself for your knee jerk reactions. They have been formed for years and take time, healing and effort to overturn and change. Don’t judge yourself or others too harshly and make sure you know all the facts, not just the headlines or the talking points.



Additional Insight:

Make sure you understand all sides of the issue before you start placing blame or judging others. This is especially true when reviewing your own actions and responses to daily situations and encounters. Sometimes things seem as though they’re an attack, when in reality they were simple issues that were made bigger because of your past experiences with others.

Don’t apply the actions of the past onto the relationships you have today. You’re not the same person within, and they may not even be the same person you’re dealing with today. So just because someone in your past hurt you deeply; doesn’t mean the person you’re with now is trying to do the same thing.

Sharing understanding, compassion and especially caring communication with yourself and those around you are the key to understanding. Take some time to calm down, and then talk it out. You’ll be better for it and so will they.
