#MessageoftheDay – 7 of Cups Rx, 2 of Wands & 8 of Cups (#MoonGarden #Tarot)

Today I focused on how to deal with the crazy because, to be perfectly honest, each new day convinces me even more that everyone is going cuckoo bananas. I’m not even trying to engage in debates with people any more because it seems like we’ve all picked a side and rabidly defend it, including me.

Anyway, between daily stress, COVID stress and political stress, I’m feeling like a piece of taffy bring stretched beyond reason. So I asked my handy dandy, wibbly wobbly Tarot deck for some insight on how to handle this. The response I received:

These cards show me that it’s all smoke and mirrors; the promises and rewards being offered are illusions. I can’t see the truth because it’s obfuscated by spin, rhetoric & implicit biases. I can’t find my way to that castle on the hill because the path is clouded and impossible to navigate.

If I want to create something for myself; to start a new project or partnership then I need to focus on myself. I need to start putting together the foundation that will help me get there. I need to unleash the energy and magic that will reveal the right path for me.

And finally, I need to know when it’s time to walk away. At certain points I need to release my emotional attachments to things which no longer serve me or help me progress forward. Whether these attachments are possessions, memories or views of myself and those around me, it’s time to let go. A reality check is needed and rose colored glasses contribute to the cloudy, obscured path I’m trying to move passed.

What is becoming unsustainable or unbearable in your life? What is your next step?

 

Wow! Clearly, something in my life needs shaking up. I think The Hanged Man is pointing out that I’ve done enough hanging around, stuck in stasis. It’s time to see things from a different perspective; turn things on their heads.

The next step is accepting that it’s okay to be dissatisfied with how things are; to want to find the emotional fulfillment and healing I need. Acknowledging that sense of ennui and emotional stagnation is an important start.

#TarotDaily – 7 of Pentacles Rx + 4 of Cups Rx (Radiant WS)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You tend to make yourself unhappy because instead of enjoying the good things in your life right now you bemoan what you don’t have. Rather than appreciating where you are, you bitch about how far you have to go.
  • You lose yourself in dissatisfaction and ennui because you don’t learn from the past. When things are not perfect you mourn rather than determining how they can be improved.
  • Revisiting past achievements and life experiences can help us realize how far we’ve come and how much we’ve learned. Getting lost in them only makes us unhappy and disgruntled.

#TarotDaily – 7 of Spirals Rx + Emperor Rx (#Pholarchos)

What happened? Where did it all go wrong? He had been confident that by now he’d be reaping the benefits of his plans and policies; being recognized for his successful, prosperous rule. Instead, things were in chaos.

Instead of growth and prosperity, there was resentment and upheaval. He was accused of not caring, being an arrogant tyrant; a bully. How could they not recognize his strengths? Why didn’t they appreciate his genius?

#TarotDaily – Dreamer of Wings Rx + King of Spirals Rx (Pholarchos)

She sat alone in the dark trying to connect with her dreams, saddened to realize they were lost. Instead of soaring high supported by exciting ideas and intriguing thoughts, her head was filled with to do lists, meetings and schedules. She was in a position of authority but felt stultified, stagnant. Her spark, her inspiration, her passion for what she did had been doused beneath the mantle of obligation and responsibility.

#TarotDaily – 10 of Sparks Rx + Ace of Wings Rx (#Pholarchos)

Lost! I feel lost. I can’t find my path; can’t figure out which direction to move. My monkey mind is chattering so loudly I can’t hear anything else; can’t focus on anything else! My energy is gone, my creativity is for shit. What the Hell happened to me?!!

I was once the star, the energetic, opinionated one. I inspired a bit of admiration and envy in others. Now I can’t be bothered to change out of my pajamas most days. I’ve tried nothing and i’!m all out of ideas. Shit! I hate feeling this way!

Whew! Glad I got that out. I can feel the fires still burning. They’re banked right now but ready to flare to life if given the opportunity. Maybe once I can harness my mind, shut that damned monkey mind up, I’ll be able to plot a new course.

#TarotDaily – The Fallen Tree Rx + 4 of Waters (#SacredBridges)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Nothing will change if you placidly sit by and just wait for it to happen. Just because we are dissatisfied with a situation does not guarantee improvements.
  • Once the changes occur we need to monitor things and ensure they continue to improve and don’t slip back to the way they were before. Vigilance is essential to ensure changes stick.
  • Holding yourself aloof from current situations so you can deflect blame is pointless. If we disagree with how things are going then work to change them but don’t cop out by claiming “I didn’t vote for/want this”. As the saying goes if we’re not part of the solution then we’re part of the problem. Of course the irony is that one person’s solution IS another’s problem. One person’s destructive Tower moment is another’s revolution. C’est le vie.

#TarotDaily – 5 of Stakes + Yemaya (#SacredBridges)

TarotHunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Do not give in to despair or let desolation become a permanent mindset. Instead, trust your intuition; listen to your instincts. Reality is that eventually things will change, hopefully for the better but if you give in to defeatism you won’t be able to recognize the changes.
  • Shielding yourself from reality only works for so long; you will eventually need to face the truth. Explore spiritual ideas and practices to help you handle matters in a soul-centered, holistic, positive way.
  • Yemaya holds the key to the answers you need but you cannot see her if you don’t open you eyes, heart, mind & soul. Try communicating with your spiritual guides, listen to their answers and use them to think about your path moving forward.

#TarotDaily – 4 of Waters Rx + 8 of Waters Rx (#Sacred Bridges)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Now is not the time for closing your eyes and trying to ignore what’s in front of you. Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it’s no longer there. All you manage to do with that behavior is create chaos because you can’t see where you’re going.
  • Put the ennui behind you; it’s time to take a strand. This situation isn’t one you can easily leave behind you so try to change the parameters; work to make it better before it’s too late.
  • Chaos, emotional turmoil and dramatically flouncing away from the current situation serves no useful purpose. Give up the over the top, emotionally overwrought behaviors and take a more mature, rational approach resolving things.

#TarotDaily – The Moon Rx + The Warrior Woman Rx (#Sacred Bridges)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You can’t sleep through your current situation anymore. It’s not a dream or an illusion, it’s a nightmare. It’s time to take up the reins and move in a more focused direction. Passive resistance is making things worse.
  • The dream has not turned out as you’d hoped. You believed positive changes could result but it hasn’t quite turned out that way. You hoped you could put down your weapons and relax because the changes would make things better. Apparently that was a mistake. Don’t let it make you a victim.
  • There are times when you can relax control and let autopilot take you where you need to go; this in not one of those times. You intuition, your inner wisdom is telling you things are wrong but you haven’t listened. You need to face the reality of the current situation and take back control of the vehicle before you’re run off the road altogether.
