#MessageoftheDay – 9 of Pentacles, 10 of Pentacles Rx + The Devil (Haunted Mansion Tarot)

“You’re surrounded by abundance, by things, by wealth. However, this is not created the happy, contented family & life that you imagined. Have you made a deal with the devil and sold your soul for this prosperity?”

#TarotDaily – King of Pentacles + 8 of Swords Rx (Radiant WS)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You have all that you desire, all the wealth you ever wanted, but it isn’t providing the satisfaction you believed it would. Instead, you’re trapped by your own mind. You think you have to continue maintaining this lifestyle; to keep up with the Joneses, but is that accurate? Maybe it’s time to put that mindset behind you, remove your blinders and take a reassess your priorities.
  • You’re surrounded by abundance and plenty but feel as though you’ve lost your mind. You’ve lost sight of what you once believed and your view of the world. Now you’re wondering what you can do to change this situation. The reality is, accepting this is the biggest part of the struggle. if you truly wish to free yourself from this current reality all you have to do is try.
  • You feel as though you have so much while others around you are suffering. At the same time you feel as though you are helpless, powerless to change this situation. That is a fallacy. You’re in a uniquely perfect position to make positive changes if you choose to do so. The first step is removing your blinders and seeing yourself for the powerful, influential person you truly are. Stop merely thinking about making changes and start talking to those who can help get your message across.

#TarotDaily – 9 of Coins + The Empress (Grand Luxe)

Tarot Hunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Wealth and possessions may not cure life’s ills, but it can sure make you feel more secure & protected.
  • Be cautious of letting your possessions, wealth & status isolate you from the world around you. Sometimes a palace can be a prison too.
  • Open yourself up to other worlds, experiences, and viewpoints. Let yourself be more vulnerable and less protected by your things. At the end of the day, possessions provide cold comfort.

#TarotDaily – 3 of Coins + 9 of Coins (Grand Luxe)

Tarot Hunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Sometimes finding satisfaction in work has less to do with salary and more to do with the pride of a job well done.
  • Learning new skills can be their own reward but remember the saying “work to live, don’t live to work”.
  • Consider how much more valuable our wealth, our possessions, our “stuff” becomes when we’ve worked hard to achieve them.

#TarotDaily – 9 of Coins Rx + The Empress Rx (Grand Luxe)

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Sometimes we become possessed by our possessions only to realize they provide no comfort, no succor to a wounded psyche.
  • We all develop self-soothing techniques, but retail therapy and buying your way to serenity is no longer effective.
  • What truly makes you feel as though you have it all or are at a place in your life that offers satisfaction and contentment? Today you might want to explore this concept. You might learn that wealth & possessions do not nurture your body & soul. They don’t make you as happy as you’d once hoped.

Tarot Truths Tyr’s Day: The Emperor – Blue Rose Tarot

Blue Rose Emperor

Blue Rose Tarot
Created by Paula Gibby
Produced by Soul Guidance, 2001

The Book says: He is the Emperor. Like the Empress, he has many gifts to offer a journeying Fool. He brings logic, order and structure to our physical world. He provides protection with the force of his will and the strength of his arm. He defends us from those who would threaten us and maintains the boundaries of what is ours. Because of him, we dwell safe and secure.

The strength and magic of the Great Father lies in that dual capacity to provide not only the force of his protection, but also the enormous strength of his love. Strength and tenderness combine in him and it is important to remember that, while he is a great Warrior, he is also a great Father.

TarotBroad’s Buzz: I think Yul Brynner as the Emperor was very appropriate. Every fiber in his body shouts his confidence, self-esteem and absolutely conviction that he is wise and knows what is best for his people and his family. His arrogance is both obvious and somehow touching. You get the feeling that he is a benevolent tyrant. I have to be honest – I’ve never seen The King and I (I just can’t sit through MGM style musicals). But even in my two favorite Yul Brynner roles (Ramses in The Ten Commandments and Chris in The Magnificent Seven) he embodies the positive and negative aspects of The Emperor.

He believes that his decisions are for the best and will benefit his people. Sometimes his arrogance makes him unable to see how self-serving they may also be. His pride ensures that you have to be very cautious in how you approach him. But he is not unreasonable or unable to listen to reason. He may be stubborn and set in his ways, perhaps even trapped by his position and the weight of its responsbilities. But he is not mean-spirited or unnecessarily harsh. He is a protector and a leader, and will do what is necessary to carry out his duties to the best of his abilities.

 

 

Tarot Truths Tyr’s Day: The Emperor – Transformational Tarot

Transformational Emperor

Transformational Tarot
Created by Arnell Ando
Published by Ink Well Publishing
ISBN# 0-9649386-3-4

The Book says: A person who is learning to master self-control. One who uses natural leadership abilities to guide others. Animus or masculine influence. Father figure. Stable, realistic, logical. Ambition and worldly gain. One who is willing to listen to the counsel of others but confidently follows their own convictions. This card can also stand for an authority figure seeking to establish dominance and control, or some confrontation with an authority figure, such as one’s father or employer or someone who upholds tradition, laws, systems and structure.

TarotBroad’s Buzz: This Emperor exudes a gentle strength and confidence. He seems confident and comfortable with his surroundings – both at one with them and in command of them. The phallic tree symbolizes masculine power and strength, while the abundant growth represents his contribution to fertility and creativity.

The Emperor also strikes me as being somewhat sad. As though he has gained the wisdom of the tree and found that his knowledge is a burden as well as a gift. He may understand and know more now, but that learning has taken away his innocence. And he seems to mourn that loss. But he will provide the stable foundation necessary to build an empire. He will use his wisdom and his intelligence to create a better world for his family and his people. He will do what is necessary to ensure they do not want for food and shelter. But at night, when he is alone with his Empress, he mourns for his lost innocence and secretly wishes he could turn back time.
