Weekly Tarot Card – The Hanged Man Reversed

In its upright position, this card shows a man hanging upside down from a tree. Interesting to note the card is called “The Hanged Man” not “The Hanging Man” which seems to imply that he has completed “dying” to his old self and hangs in the interim waiting for the reveal of a new body. The message is surrender to the now and look at things from a different angle, sacrifice old beliefs in order to gain new insights.

In this week’s pull the card appears in its reversed position, meaning the man is hanging no more. He is ready to step back into the world with new understandings and a different bearing. The halo around his head illumines his path forward into a new day.

It’s time to return from your period of retreat. Use the information gained from the different perspective and value what your surrender and sacrifice has taught you. Bring these qualities into the world to contribute to the benefit of all.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Moon

The Moon

The Moon Card is all about the reveal. It is nighttime and the full moon is reflected in the light of the sun which sheds it’s rays on the wildlife below. A dog and wolf bark at the moon. A crayfish emerges from the waters.

What is to be revealed? Our civil and wild natures as seen in the dog and wolf respectively seek recognition and understanding. It’s as if they are barking, “See me, hear me, feel me” to the golden silvery light above. The crayfish whose thick shell serves as protection from the elements decides to leave its watery home to walk the perilous path on land. It takes courage to face the unknown but the time is right.

Are we to follow suit and face our fears and illusions? Do we have the courage to look into our shadow self, our defenses, whatever is hidden deep within our subconscious. Let what needs to be revealed rise to the surface. Pay attention to dreams and the keys they hold, the messages from our meditations. Seek integration of light and dark as the moon and sun is reflected in our true nature.

Weekly Tarot Card – The Tower

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.

Weekly Tarot Card – Temperance

For a good life, it’s all about finding the right mixture. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, add some here, take away some there. The angel pours water from one cup to another. We see this as a repetitive action as she blends all the elements within the flow. With one foot in the water and one on the stones she shows us that the path to a good life is made with a combination of intuition and grounding. An illuminated crown waits for us as we align with the elements of this journey.
This week let us temper our behaviors to forge the middle path and allow a bit of heaven to enter this earthly plane.
