The darkened figure is looking upon seven golden chalices appearing out of the clouds. There is chilling aspect here, perhaps a warning regarding desires and illusions. Be careful what you wish for…or all that glitters is not gold. The illusory aspect of wishful thinking must be addressed as the ego leaps to a quenching of emotional needs. Look carefully upon your wishes and the options that come your way. There are snakes, sophists, phantoms, towers, jewels, victories and dragons. Know that all this can disappear like the cloudy bed upon which they appear. Be still in the silence and listen to your inner voice. Truth is there.
Whenever I pull a Major Arcana card reversed I tend to interpret the reversal as a call to take the message of the card inwards. We know the Major Arcana is a group in the tarot deck having to do with great life lessons. Therefore it stands to reason that the reversal points to an internal focus rather than the customary delays or postponements of everyday situations. Perhaps there is a resistance or lack of awareness of a certain energy or practice. The High Priestess sits on her throne wearing beautiful blue robes the color of spiritual knowledge. She guards the veil to the unknown and those wishing to see beyond are instructed to look within. And so I dedicate 5-10 minutes daily THIS WEEK to meditate and listen to my inner voice. If I don’t hear anything I will look for signs in other phenomena. I will abide within and wait upon my soul. For the High Priestess encourages me with her mystical gaze to peer within for the answers I long to find. Will you join me in this practice?
You’ve worked long and hard and accomplished much over time. As you take a break and look over your “crop,” you might wonder if it was all worth it? Because soon it will be time to ponder the next step and it will be up to you to decide whether to continue along the road you’ve been traveling or perhaps branch off into a different direction. Seven is the number of evaluation and although the suit is pentacles and has everything to do with earth and physical matter, the suggestion is that now is the time to connect within and listen to the messages of your inner voice. One thing is clear–you are a good planner and have a strong will and determination. You can accomplish anything you put your mind, heart and soul to. We can’t wait to see what your next hurrah will be!
