You’ve got the power! …To manifest your desires. All the tools and resources are at your finger tips. Go create…but remember to connect heaven and earth in your deliberate creation and do not stray far from the benevolent source of all life. White for purity, red for vitality, the four tools of tarot energy–cup, pentacle, sword and wand. Let’s make a garden of beautiful flowers and travel together in a world of light. We’ve got the power!
Lightning strikes the tower. The crown topples midst the fiery destruction. Two people jump from the burning building to escape peril. One has eyes faced forward, the other is looking up. Where will you look for succor when your world falls apart? Will you seek the earth or heaven? The universe deals us challenges for our growth and expansion. Sometimes these challenges are not so subtle. If you have been dealt a blow in your health, your relationships, your job, your spirits, reframe your fear and despair into one of gratitude so you can capture the lesson and the new knowledge for moving past your present predicament…forward into the light.
Look 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.
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.
Here we have a young fellow sitting in meditation under a tree (which reminds us of another young fellow ages ago who sat under a tree to receive enlightenment). The leaves of the tree seem to be pointing down to where he sits in a posture of defiance. His arms are not in the customary openness we are used to seeing in meditators. They are folded across his chest as if to protect his heart from opening. He gazes down and whether or not he is in deep meditation, we feel he does not “see” the divine hand shrouded in the heavenly clouds which offers him a beautiful golden cup. Where are your wishes coming from? Are they divinely inspired? Do you believe that goodness is yours? Are you opening yourself to the goodness which is yours? Or do you hold yourself in doubt and fear, resisting to look upwards in yourself? There is much sorrow and devastation in the world right now. We are called more strongly to hold ourselves in the light and like this young man relax our arms, open our heart path; perhaps we will witness and take hold of the offered cup and drink its goodness. And would this usher in a life of abundance where cups abound? For we can see there are three others standing in readiness for acceptance and exaltation.
