#TarotDaily – The Empress + 10 of Discs (#AllHallows)

How are you exploring your subconscious? Why might it be a good idea to seek a connection with it?

Ironic that I drew The Empress in response to this; for many years I had quite a hostile relationship with her. Perhaps, like a lot of abused children, in an effort to avoid feeling powerless I identified with the abuser. I think I already had a well-developed Yang personality. Add in the perceived weakness of the women in my life and it was almost inevitable that to feel strong I expressed traditionally masculine attitudes and behaviors. Now, in order to explore my subconscious I need to follow a more Yin, feminine path.

This unfamiliar, to me anyway, path can help me become whole; learn to blend my outer Yang and inner Yin. It will help me heal and become more comfortable, more at home in my own skin. The truth is that I will always be assertive, forceful, quick to express my opinions and somewhat obnoxious. Diplomacy and tact are not really in my repertoire. Soothing the feelings of others rarely occurs to me but I suppose it’s never too late to learn. The first step is to embrace the belief that Yin energy is just as powerful and strong as Yang energy. Maybe it’s time to accept that I don’t need to be so defensive. I can let my guard down a bit (just a bit) and let a select, trusted few within the perimeter.

#TarotDaily – 4 of Swords + Judgement (Radiant WS)


TarotHunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • It’s time to rest, draw in your energy and take a break. This gives you a chance to reassess, reevaluate and reconsider your plans. Soon, you be released and unleashed – ready to take on new projects; reenergized to discover what lies around the next curve in your road.
  • Be careful not to withdraw from others right now. You may have been judging yourself too harshly and, as a result, cut yourself off from those who can help you move past this tendency. Be open to listening to the advice friends and loved ones offer.
  • You’ve been in a period of hibernation, removing yourself from the world around you in order to better assess what you want to do next. Now it’s time to emerge again and celebrate your potential; explore what new opportunities await!

#TarotDaily – 5 of Coral Rx + Ace of Sparks (#Pholarchos)

She celebrates! The melancholy, sadness and loss are behind her now. She is finally able to express her joy, to embrace her bliss. Her mind is filled with new ideas new energy, new inspiration. They run rampant across her imagination.

The potential awaits activation. The endless possibilities excite and tickle her spirit but she was unable to see it until she released her grief.

#TarotDaily – Devil Rx + 5 of Coral (#Pholarchos)

Her melancholy poured from her instrument. Her sadness shadowed her like a cloak. Although she was doing what she loved it was overshadowed by regret. She could have been doing this so much sooner if only she hadn’t let her own inner demons and the negative comments of others deter her; undermine her confidence; hold her prisoner; worm their way into her brain.

She paused for a second, shaking off those negative thoughts. That was all in the past now. she was moving forward and needed to focus on her future; no longer shackled to the past. She had found bliss and planned to treasure it.

#TarotDaily – Kali Rx + Chief of Wheels Rx (#SacredBridges)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Kali’s dance of death is inevitable. You can’t avoid it or postpone it, only accept it. Stubbornly refusing to accept change can create stagnation and prevent skills from growing. Face Kali and absorb her message so you can begin growing and manifesting your future.
  • Perhaps you enjoy the status quo. You feel on top and in control and don’t want that to change. Unfortunately, that’s an illusion. No matter how hard we cling to now, it always slips from our grasp. Enjoy it while it’s here but prepare yourself for future changes as well. Being King of the World is never permanent.
  • Kali will eventually dance on all our bones, that is the nature of life – things die so new life can grow. We try to outrace her; to create an oasis hidden from her influence, but it’s futile. On the positive side, things we hate right now will eventually fall to Kali’s dance too. As Bowie sang “Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes, turn and face the strange.”

#TarotDaily – 4 of Wheels Rx + 3 of Waters (Sacred Bridges)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You’re holding on too tightly; trying to retain things that are best let go. Instead of clinging desperately to what should be released, celebrate how much you loved and enjoyed it when it was yours. Share memories with friends and loved ones; focus on the happiness it brought.
  • You’re functioning like the boy with his finger in the dyke trying to stave off the inevitable flood. It’s ultimately pointless and wasted effort. Remember that life is mutable and it’s more fun to focus your energies on celebrating the changes rather than stubbornly trying to prevent them.
  • Take a rest, give yourself a break. You’ve put a lot of time and effort into manifesting something and now it’s in the past. Instead of fixating on how you could have done things differently, focus on enjoying it’s end. Have a drink or minor celebration in its honor.

#TarotDaily – 4 of Pentacles Rx + 8 of Cups (Guardian)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You’ve been conserving your resources but that can only take you so far. Your heart is no longer invested in the current situation and wants to move on to seek something different.
  • You’ve convinced yourself that the status quo is being maintained in your life but it isn’t true. In your heart you realize things have changed and you need to move on but you’re still resistant.
  • You’re clinging too tightly to the way things used to be; letting fear dictate your behaviors. Trust that your heart will lead you in the right direction and release the past. You may sacrifice some stability but find untold emotional satisfaction in its place.
