Weekly Tarot Card – 3 of Wands, 9 of Swords, King of Swords

This morning when I was pulling the weekly tarot card, 3 cards fell out in this order so I chose to provide a 3-card reading for the week.

Perhaps like the wealthy merchant standing with the 3 wands on the cliff, you have plans in motion and are waiting for your “ships to come in.” Although the ships are small and in the distance, the horizon is illuminated and there is hope in the air.

Contrary to the figure who has just awakened from a nightmare. It’s as if the 9 swords hanging in the black night have pierced his mind with dark thoughts. Perhaps you have doubts and fears that invade the optimism. These negative thoughts do not protect you from success or failure. In fact they block the manifestation at hand. Your mind can really play tricks on you. Best to intervene on yourself, break old patterns that no longer contribute and like the figure in bed look to the pretty flowers on the coverlet. There is hope in the air. See those and not the hanging swords.

How will you do this? The King of Swords comes in with his particular blend of mental clarity and intuition. You can be discerning and hopeful at the same time. There he sits with an earnest expression on a throne adorned with crescent moons and butterfly carvings. He welcomes the evolution of dreams to manifestations. You should too.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Star

AE4EDD2B-7884-4666-BA85-6A9904CFC691_1_201_aLook we’ve come through! After some trials and tribulations we have seen the light at the end of the tunnel. A beautiful maiden pours water into a refreshing pool and along the lush flower strewn landscape under a starry starry night. The eight-pointed star symbolizes regeneration, and the number 8 turned on its side is the infinity sign. This is a hopeful card for creativity, optimism, rebirth. May you be inspired this week and live in the light.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Star

Things in the world were looking pretty bleak and it was difficult to find a light at the end of the tunnel. Then this lovely card with its message of hope and inspiration filtered in to bring us off the ledge. How can we be like this beautiful woman, tending to her jugs of water which replenish the verdant landscape of flowers in the peace and calm of star shine? True, we are in a difficult time with six planets in retrograde, a worldwide pandemic, social unrest. But let us remember that the Star appears in the Tarot deck after the Tower where destruction and turmoil occur. We will emerge from the crisis with a new sense of self divinely inspired and energized with beneficial purpose for all. Follow the light and act in love.

Weekly Tarot Card – Death

A skeleton clad in black armor sits astride a beautiful white horse. They are walking over the people, a member of royalty, a bishop. a woman and her child. Death comes to the high and the low and does not discriminate. The Messenger of Death carries a black flag with a five pointed white star on it. Five is the number of change. The white star of purity against the blackness of death signals change and transformation. All things change–relationships, jobs, life. Nothing is forever. Except the soul. It is good to acknowledge when systems no longer serve their usefulness or purpose, they must be allowed to die. With a death comes the hope of a new beginning.

Weekly Tarot Card – Five of Pentacles

5 of PentaclesWhat a dismal scene. A man and a woman are walking in a snowstorm. His legs are bandaged and he uses crutches. She is barefoot in the snow wrapped in a cloak. Her gaze is downcast, he looks up to the heavens as if to say, “Why me?” Each despairs of their condition which is abject poverty. So engrossed in their unhappy and hopeless situation are they that neither notices the bright lights coming from the pentacles (gold coins) depicted in the stained glass windows in the church to their left. It is a cautionary tale, one that messages the mistake of too much attention to the problem rather than solution. If we keep our heads buried in the circumstances of our despair we will miss the signs of hope and help. Look to the light…always.
