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

Ace of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Sometimes we can protect ourselves from the rain, by showing others love and compassion. When you walk the path of kindness, tolerance and acceptance you heal the world around you. In doing so, you’ll find that even if someone tries to turn your world upside down, your cup will still remain full and overflowing with blessings.

Additional Insight:

The real test of the day is walking the path of spirit in the real world. Putting your beliefs and perspectives into practice can be challenging at times. And you will face those challenges today. Take a moment to reflect on what you believe and how you want to live your life. When you’re confronted with a challenge today, consciously make the choice to Walk Your Talk©! A simple pat on the back, rub of a shoulder or kind word to someone who is filled with anxiety and anger can show your compassion and kindness. Even when their anger is directed squarely at you.
