Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Hermit

The Hermit

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You maybe feeling alone and distant from everyone today. Retreating from all the emotions of others because you can’t deal with any more than what’s already in-front of you. Give yourself a break! You’re not responsible for the way others choose to feel. You have the right to chart your own path and walk your own talk.

Additional Insight:

It’s hard enough picking and choosing your own emotions through out the day. You can’t make choices for others as well. You have a path to tread that will take you into the future of your own dreams and aspirations. And that is more than enough for you to deal with and handle at the moment.

Anyone who knows you, understands and can see how hard you’ve been working to move things along. If they’re not supportive, if they’re not standing by your side, then maybe they aren’t someone you need in your life right now. As long as you didn’t make promises that you’re not keeping, you’re not responsible for their assumptions.

Close your office door, don’t answer the phone call, or simply turn your back on the crowd and do what you need to get done. Focus on your feelings and your choices. Forgive yourself for feeling guilty, or responsible for how others feel. They’re not a robot you control. And you’re not accountable for how they choose to react to you and what you need or want to get done. Sometimes we need to be alone and in our own space. It gives us a chance to remember who we are and what we’re about. Be your own best friend and stay away from the toxic people.

Ace of Wands - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Let your ambition feed your energy for growth. A little nurturing will go a long way to getting things done and making headway in your tasks for the day. Plug into your reserves and you’ll take flight and get out of the darkness you may have found yourself in over the past week.

Additional Insight:

Don’t let the shadows convince you of wrong doing. Don’t let the pressure overwhelm you. And don’t give in when you know you’re walking the path that’s meant for you.

Even in the shadows you can find growth and beauty. Some of the best delicacies only grow in the shade. So stop thinking everything is terrible or bad, when you’re being given an opportunity to see the light within you. It’s a special and unique energy that belongs to you, own it.

Take a little time to balance yourself out of the heaviness of being too grounded. Align yourself with the higher energies of the Divine in your life and you’ll be able to lift some of the weight from your shoulders. You’ll also be able to weed through things and find the real treasures you’ve been seeking. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Six of Cups

Six of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Take a little time to think and review the course forward. New information will come your way and you will need time to take it in and contemplate how it impacts your plans for the future. Don’t look at these changes as a bad thing, because they’re not. You’ll recover some of your freedom and get a better grip on your world that has been out of reach. It will mean changes are coming again, for your betterment and not your detriment.

Additional Insight:

What you learn today will help you adjust your course of action and discover a calmer route forward. You’ll have an opportunity to feel empowered and in better control of your own future. So pay attention and be open to what others have to share. It’s a day of abundance and sharing.

Don’t focus on the change, it’s not as much as you may think. But even if it were, change is good and staying the same is limiting your growth on many fronts. Including the expansion of abundance and security, in heath, relationships and even financial matters.

Take in this new knowledge and contemplate how to implement the what you receive and where best to alter the plan. But what ever you do, don’t ignore it or push the information aside. You need this to bring about success and wisdom.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven Of Cups – Inverted

Seven of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You’re a busy bee today and that’s a good thing. You have a lot of little things that need to get done, on schedule and on budget. Don’t make excuses and put things off. Some of the things you need to do are more imperative than you might imagine. Others are greatly depending on you to resolve a big problem and you don’t want to let them down.

Additional Insight:

It’s not a day to sit and plan things out. You should have already done that. You must actually get things moving and do some real work on the issues at hand. There are deadlines in play on several levels and if you put things off, you’ll miss the opportunities you’ve been given.

Don’t let the gloom of the clouds hang over your path and drain your mental energy. Push through the steps that need to be taken and you’ll energize yourself! Check off the items on your list and you’ll feel much lighter and unburdened. Along with feeling a whole lot better about your future plans.

Sometimes we get a second and even third chance at winning the game. You have conquered many of the little battles along the way, but you’re still fighting the war. If you continue to drop the ball as each time frame passes by, you’re eventually going to lose everything you’ve struggled so hard to keep. You’re not only risking the material things, but the intangible things that you care the most about.

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

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

No one can take away your confidence and pride. No matter how much you may have given up in the material world, there are some things you simply cannot lose. Unless, you give it away yourself. Don’t lose faith in your ability to succeed and give up who you are for a false promise. You’re worth more than that. And you deserve better!

Additional Insight:

Desperation makes a very bad bed fellow.
Don’t give up and give away your very soul.
~ Springwolf 🐾 © 2000

All things around you are changing, and they are moving in the direction you need them to go. You may not be able to see the destination, but that doesn’t mean you should get off the trail and look for another route to where you’re going. That desperation will lead you down a path of greater pitfalls and struggle. Stay the course and ride out this brief lack of confidence.

You deserve more and indeed you’re working toward making things better. But the unknown that’s holding you in fear can divert your good intentions and judgement down a path of false promises. Don’t give up the ship for the little dingy that will not hold all the rewards you deserve. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ten of Swords

Ten of Swords Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Sometimes all the little jabs can add up and pull you down. Don’t be so hard on yourself and remember that feeling sad is just as much a part of living in balance as being overjoyed. You can’t appreciate happiness, if you don’t understand the sadness. But don’t let the struggles overwhelm you. Each one is nothing more than a passing moment.

Additional Insight:

Try not to overlook the little things in life,
because the big things don’t happen very often.
Finding a thrill in everyday events is Priceless!

~ Springwolf 🐾 ©2000 

In the world of spirituality and life coaching we do a lot of talking about choosing to be happy. Starting the day with positive thinking and creating the day you want. But in paganism we talk a lot about living in balance and striving to achieve a balance in all things. And that includes your emotions.

Feeling sad isn’t a bad thing. Having a good cry every now and then is a very cleansing experience. It pulls up the energy of struggle, disappointment and challenge in a release that “gets it out” and gives you a chance to let it go. Holding it in all the time can keep that energy churning away within and eventually causing physical illness. Finding healthy ways to face it and let it out can help you release all the little thorns in your side that have piled on and weakened your resolve. Continue reading

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

Eight of Wands: Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You may feel as though troubles are raining down upon you today. But you’re much stronger than you think you are. You really aren’t losing the battle. In fact, if you pay attention to details, you’ll discover that the negative events are falling by the wayside. Stay calm and you won’t become the target. You’ll be able to weave your way through the fire and escape without issue.

Additional Insight:

There’s a lot of change going on in the world. A lot of it is pushing people and events to change when they don’t want to. That’s creating turmoil for those who are moving forward and welcoming the shifts needed in their lives.

If you’re one of the people going with the flow and enjoying the adventure, you can still feel the anxiety going on around you. Especially if you’re sensitive to subtle energy shifts. Don’t worry. It’s not you. Try to set some shields of protection and push away the fear, anger and turmoil of others. Don’t let their struggles become your battles. You may find yourself in a fight that has no value for you.

If you’re fighting against the tide and trying to keep the status quo going, you’re putting yourself in the line of fire. You’re being pushed out of negative or bad situations and toward a better environment. Don’t fear the change, revel in it. Accept that some things have to change in order for you path to get better. You’re not where you should be and the Divine in your life is trying very hard to get you moving. Continue reading

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

Two of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Once again you need to pay attention to the flow of your thoughts. Things are not upside as your anxiety is telling you. Stop expecting the bottom to fall out or you will make it happen! Keep within your means, do what you can and you’ll control your environment with ease. Letting go doesn’t mean throwing caution to the wind. It means actively participating in the here and now, to focus on your positive future.

Additional Insight:

Don’t create a self-fulfilling prophecy. Letting go of your anxiety doesn’t mean you can ignore your budget or your work load. It means you must release the negative thoughts that hold you back from taking care of those things in your own life and being consciously responsible for your choices.

You can’t throw caution to the wind, say I let go and let ‘God’ and then go out and spend what you know you don’t have. You must live in the here and now, with an eye on the future. Swinging the pendulum to the other side of the extreme is no better than living without. Today strive for the balance in the middle.

Focus on the even keel and you’ll discover you’re not losing things from your baskets, but rather adding to them. Your anxiety won’t get the best of you, because you’re being accountable. You’re reasoning things out and setting up a plan to have the little things you desire, while still working on the really big things. And you will be able to do both, if you keep calm.

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

Ace of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be open to receiving and what you need will present itself. Be careful that your annoyance at situations and at certain people don’t close you off to welcoming what’s coming back your way.  You maybe holding things together with a string. But you’re strong enough to get through the delay and wait for the rewards. Remember, things happen in their right time and space. As long as you’re open for it to happen.

Additional Insight:

Things aren’t always what they seem. You’re not losing ground even though you may think you are. Those thoughts are nothing more than your anxiety getting the best of you…again. Turn the focus upside down and you’ll see nothing is falling out of your baskets. You’re still on track and things are still ok.

Remember to open your arms and catch the things that are coming your way. They’re not really rewards, but rather things you’ve worked hard to achieve and bring into abundance. So stop waiting for the other shoe to fall. It’s not going to happen!

Instead, keep control of your stress and pay attention to the little gains you’ve made. Things aren’t nearly as tough as they were this time last year. Or as tough as they were the year before that. You have come a long way and you are making strides. Keep your head on your shoulders. Keep yourself open to receiving good tidings and let the Fae bring some magik into your day. Continue reading

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

Seven Of Wands: Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Calm the Dragon within. Don’t hold onto seething anger or you’ll end up making yourself sick, along with making a bump in the road into a mountain. You’re being held up, not to teach you a lesson, but because someone else needs to learn something. Be patient through the weekend, it will work out by Tuesday.

Additional Insight:

Don’t complain to those who can’t fix the problem. You’ll only feed energy to the problem and make it grow. Let the person who broke the agreement know how their actions have impacted you adversely.  Their inaction has consequences beyond what they see and they’re not the only ones struggling.

Today and through the weekend however, you need to focus on your commitments. Don’t make promises you’re not sure you can keep. If you can’t count on others, then go about your business as if their promises don’t even exist. That way you won’t be held out in the cold and your word will still have value.

If your commitment involves financial obligations, contact those you have agreements with. Let them know what’s going on and ask for a delay in payment. Or ask if you can fulfill the agreement in two payments if possible. You never know what will happen if you don’t ask. And the worst thing they can do is say no. If you are honestly trying, the Divine will be on your side and a little magik could be at work. So take the chance. 

Don’t get jaded, it only gives more energy away to the one causing you pain.
Instead, forgive so that you can rise above and set yourself free!
