Tarot Card of the Week: Lizard

LizardTarot Card of the Week: June 26 – July 2, 2017


This week you may find yourself needing to defend your belief systems to others. You may be called upon to stand your ground and express your views with courage and conviction.

This is not going to be the time to waiver or back down. It’s all about standing up for what you believe in, even if you find yourself at odds with the masses.

The Lizard — or Seven of Branches in the Animal Wisdom Tarot — is associated with the Seven of Wands in traditional tarot. It’s all about holding your ground and not allowing yourself to be backed into a corner. It’s about refusing to take the easy way out or to concede defeat.

Look at how vibrant and colorful this lizard is. He’s not about to be toned down or forced into complacency. His confidence may be bolstered by the branches that frame him on either side, but you can see that they offer little protection.

The rainbow behind him though says that he’s standing up for something he truly believes in. His ideals are noble and his intentions are grand — even as he loudly proclaims them.

The downside of this energy is the forcefulness with which he depends his territory. He may feel threatened which is why he’s puffed himself out there in an attempt to make himself look bigger than he is.

Keep this in mind this week as you find yourself clamoring to make your own voice be heard. Make sure you’re aligned with the principles that you defend and are not just squawking about something you don’t even believe in.
