The Hermit: Card of the Day

July 9th: The Hermit 

See the path ahead this Hermit is to take? Sometimes we need to get away, the mountains can be a good place for this inner exploration of your thoughts.

The question: What do you want? What do you see ahead for you, what do you WANT to see ahead in the future for you?

Time to do some soul-searching and connect with Spirit, stop ignoring what it is trying to tell you. Gain perspective on your life so you can be open to the inner guidance that is readily available to you. 

Father Time waits for no one, let go and go within. Some things need to die in order for a new life to emerge.

The High Priestess

img_20170115_073546_294

 

Here we see a woman sitting upon her throne. She is mystical, wise, compelling, elegant and intuitive. With her cat by her side she holds in her hands a scroll and blooming sage, both signifying wisdom. We see the sky above her while the moon and starts are at her feet showing her centered and neutral.

As a Priestess we see the reintroduction of the female principle into religion and cosmology, thus stepping away from The Magician. When thinking of a Priest we generally think man, not woman. Men have been the dominant role in religion for ages depicting such qualities of being beyond reach, seen as unapproachable, callous, emphasizing sin, punishment and judgement. Men are also seen as active, strict, rugged and of a logical mind.

As a woman the High Priestess shows qualities of love and mercy. In addition she represents a deeper and subtle aspect of females, the mysteries and secrets that we have are kept hidden. To men women may seem mysterious, passive and non-action oriented.

People have a tendency to link passivity with a negative view, such as inferiority and weakness. Yet when we are passive and not in constant action we give ourselves the opportunity to ‘go within’ and connect with our own self on a deeper spiritual and intuitive level. It is this withdrawal from the outside world and all that we are involved in on a daily basis that allows our inner voice to come to the surface so we may hear that still small voice emerge. Many people stay busy so as not to hear this inner voice. However, this passivity can bring to the surface hidden wisdom from within ourselves, our heart, and our soul.

This is the message of the High Priestess, to go within yourself. You have secrets and potential that wish to become known.

 

Today in our society we seem to be in a constant rush with very little time, if any to connect to our own self on a truly spiritual level. Sure, lots of people go to Church on a weekly basis, but how often do you find yourself in the middle of service thinking, “Oh I wish this would hurry up, I have things to do!”  The High Priestess symbolizes taking time to connect within, of learning on a different level.

There is a mystery of life, of which we can obtain knowledge when we take the time to be still. Yet, it is at these times when we are still that our fears come to the surface, when these do so we are given the opportunity to face them which gives to us a new sense of wisdom and beauty. This passive withdrawal and contemplation gives to us time to allow that which we have shut down and hidden in the dark recesses of our mind to awaken. These mysteries and secrets of self and sometimes other matters are the message of the High Priestess.

Trust your intuition and instincts, you have potential that you have not yet explored or perhaps has yet to be fulfilled. Gain your balance, become neutral so upon looking again at your situation you may see something that you missed previously. Once you have your realization, then take action or the potential will not be realized. Pay attention to your dreams, they too may be trying to tell you something!

In a man’s love/relationship reading this can represent a woman that he is very attracted to. She can be of a Spiritual nature, intuitive, creative, sexy, feminine, intoxicating … but you might not be able to have her!?

Look at Spiritual matters in a different way, talk to people who have beliefs different than your own. Get out of your comfort zone, you may learn something new about yourself in the process.

Every intelligent individual wants to know what makes him tick, and yet is at once fascinated and frustrated by the fact that oneself is the most difficult of all things to know. – Alan Watts

Blessings to you on your Journey,

About the Tarot

picsart_12-10-06-07-09

Several years ago I was watching a movie and the background music starts to get intense, the two main characters are waiting for the fortune-teller to give them the outcome to their question and the card is DEATH! The two main characters look at each other with fear in their eyes! Does that mean someone is going to die? Are they going to die? What does this mean?!?

What if the Magician card would have been pulled? Does that mean someone put a spell on characters in the movie? What if it were the Sun, does that mean they are going to burn to death or they really need to start using more sunscreen? What about the Star or the Moon?

I had always been interested in the Tarot but had never had a reading done for myself. Living in a secluded town in southern Colorado this wasn’t something openly available to me. When I would see the Tarot used in the movies, these were some of the questions that popped into my mind. It made me wonder: is Hollywood making a mountain out of a molehill for the sake of selling a movie? Why are they portraying the Tarot like this? In the movies why are these little cards with pictures on them always portrayed as ‘bad’? Are there any ‘good cards’? If so, what are they? What do those mean? Why do some people get so freaked out about this?

It makes me wonder what the rest of you think when you see the Tarot used in the movies or displayed elsewhere. I have been reading Tarot for 8 years now and wanted to share my love of it and knowledge with you.

Playing cards were developed in China around the 9th century. The early Tarot cards are thought to have originated in Egypt during the 11th century. Some of the oldest cards date back to Italy during the mid-15th century to play such games as Italian tarocchini and French Tarot. By 1791 the first Tarot deck was dedicated to divination.

Divination, what is this? The practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown, prophecy, perception by intuition, instinctive foresight, following your gut.

How often do you trust or even listen to your gut instinct, your intuition? As humans we are master rationalizers. We have a tendency to see things as black or white with little grey area in-between. This grey area is usually the creative solution, our gut instinct, our intuition. That “inner voice” which is telling us to do something but we can’t rationalize just why we should. Acknowledging this hunch, this gut instinct seems a little, well … far out.

We all have intuition, yet we are taught reason and rationalization from a young age. Our brain will edit, censure and resist some of the data if certain emotions are triggered.

Your own spiritual beliefs and life perspective come into play with divination and your intuition. Were you taught: THIS is just how it IS. Or were you taught to see ALL SIDES of a situation and be open minded?

Sometimes it’s not about knowing, it’s about faith & revelation. As we go thru life, it’s all a mystery. Truly we don’t know what is going to happen from one day to the next, and we believe, we have Faith that we will have a tomorrow. We can look back upon past memories and current experiences which dictate how we will make our choices, yet the future is the unknown. Sure we can plan for the future like someone that plans for retirement and deposits money into their 401k. It is our present choices that make our future. If you’re not saving up for retirement well guess you’ll be a working stiff?!

Tarot readings give a deep inside look into the things we keep hidden, the things we don’t want to acknowledge. A reading can illuminate your past, clarify your present and show you the future to come that is being defined by your present choices and decisions. Readings are not meant to give you a specific Yes or No answer but the opportunity to raise your consciousness and your own intuition to a higher level. For most it is simply the study of a deeper spiritual reality that extends beyond pure reason and the physical sciences.

Alan Alda said, “At times you have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”

How do you tap into your intuition? And, what about that Death card that I mentioned at the beginning of this post? What does it mean? And what about the Magician or the Sun? I’ll hit those up in my next blog post, until then!

Many Blessings!
