Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Strength – Inverted

Strength Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Many are feeling drained in all areas of mind/body/spirit. It has been a trying week on all levels, but much work has been accomplished. You’ve made it through, now it’s time to relax. Spend the afternoon soaking up some sun, floating in the water, or simply sitting in a park and watching the world move about. Allow your stress to leave your body, relax for the remainder of the weekend and escape the day to day grind. You deserve it!



It’s important to escape the stress of life now and then. If for no other reason than to replenish your energy to fight again another day. This weekend take time for YOU and relax. Failing to do so will cause you to worry yourself sick.

Spend the afternoon with good friends and enjoy some much needed down time. Share a meal, a bottle of wine or just relax on the porch or deck and soak in the calm serenity of nature around you. This weekend is a great time to journey to a park and walk through the trees, or sit on a bench and watch the birds play. Find something that you will enjoy to take your mind off the stresses of this past week. Boost your energy with some light meditation. Watch a good movie or read a good book. Let your mind wander through dreams and desires and truly escape the worry for a few days.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Temperance –

Temperance

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Temper your confidence with compassion and nurturing of others. Don’t stick your nose in the air and act as if you’re better than anyone else. Others have gone through what you have, and they too have made it through with grace and dignity. Hold onto your strength and ability to survive. But remember, you still have healing to do within, and issues to face. A little humility goes a long way when you share your knowledge and what you’ve done to succeed.



Additional Insight:

Being confident in your abilities to face adversity and overcome what the world throws at you is important. But allowing that confidence to turn into over indulgence, or arrogance does a disservice to you and the work you have done to survive.

Remember others have gone through things that are much worse than you have and they too have survived. Instead of looking down on others who are still struggling, your humility will be better served by helping them get through their trials with encouragement, support and sharing what you have done to innovate, adapt and overcome.  Be an inspiration to others and help them see what they can become in their own right.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Strength

Strength

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You wear the crown and govern your own domain. Don’t allow others to push you into something you would otherwise avoid doing. Their guilt trip is a manipulation of your emotions and not one of friendship or caring. Step back, allow your heart and head to heal and allow your strength of spirit to reclaim your day and your future. You have survived much..you’re stronger for it..so don’t be afraid to say ‘No’. It really will be ok.


Additional Insight:

When the major Arcana comes up, we’re often dealing with matters of a spiritual nature. Spiritual lessons, karma or expressions of the inner spirit and knowledge. The Strength card has come up twice is two days. There is much work going on that deals with our own inner spiritual strength. Take note of these messages.

Sometimes when we ask for something, the answer is no. Don’t doubt yourself. Don’t let others to control your emotions, or your actions. You’ve earned the right to speak up for yourself, to take care of you and sometimes that means saying “No” to someone who wants something from you. If they get angry, then they don’t have your best interest in mind and they have little respect for you. If you give in, you aren’t showing yourself any respect either. It’s time to take care of the self and follow your own heart and gut  feelings.

And don’t worry about those who become offended. Simply tell them, the truth. Either explain you don’t want to do that, it’s not something you would feel comfortable with. Or tell them you have too much on your plate as it is and you can’t take on anything else.
