Tarot Card of the Week: July 10 – July 16, 2017
This week you may need to dig deep to find your inner reserves of strength and power. You may be called upon to tame your inner beast and harness your fears.
The Strength card is a card of self-mastery. It’s all about mind over matter and gaining control over the things in your life that are at risk for spiraling out of control.
It refers not to physical strength but to courage, will-power and self-control. It can also mean finding an appropriate outlet for something that you may have responded to in a less than favorable manner in the past.
The Strength card indicates a need to master your fears and conquer your demons. It speaks of staying grounded and being steadfast in the face of danger, no matter what curve-balls the Universe throws your way.
You may need to put on a brave face and tackle the things that frighten you or take you outside of your comfort zone. You may also need to be kind to yourself and tend to your own needs with the same loving care that you’re used to doling out to others.
On Friday, November 27, 2015, Chiron (the wounded healer) returns to direct motion after being in retrograde motion since June 24, 2015.
Retrograde motion is the time when the wounds of the past are turned inwards and your spirit weeps! If you went through something during the retrograde phase, you probably refused to deal with it or you couldn’t deal with it because it was too painful.
Now you might be ready to deal with the upsetting situation and do the hard work to put yourself back on solid ground!
You see, Chiron orbits between the planets of Saturn (hard work) and Uranus (the awakener). Saturn is related to karma, restrictions, lessons to learn and sometimes bad luck.
Saturn makes you roll up your sleeves and do the hard work to solve your problems and Uranus awakens you with insight to help you get out of a rut. If you ignore the insight from Uranus, you’ll end up with more work to do to heal your wounds and you’re spirit will continue to weep.
Tarot Card of the Week: Oct 12 – Oct 18, 2015
The High Priestess
This week’s card — in honor of the New Moon at 19° Libra — is the High Priestess card, this version from Anna Klaffinger’s gorgeous Anna K. Tarot.
The High Priestess represents intuition, serenity and wisdom. She encourages you to seek guidance from within and to heed your inner voice. In this respect you may need to find your place of quiet and solitude in order to best access her messages.
She represents psychic impressions and psychic experiences, such as astral travel, lucid dreams or déjà vu experiences. While that may be a bit unnerving for you at first it can open up doors for you that you never dreamed possible.
The High Priestess is a strong feminine energy — regardless of gender. It speaks of feminine strength and wisdom and all the secrets of the Universe unveiled.
The High Priestess in this card is seated at the edge of a deep, dark pool. A portion of her robes are submerged in the water, and an old tree rises from its depths.
