The Hierophant: Get Connected 

August 3rd: The Hierophant

When was the last time you and Spirit became connected?  If it has been a while, a teacher or mentor may become a part of your life to assist in guiding you upon your path.

If you are connected to Spirit on a regular basis, you may be the mentor for someone else. 

Remember when you are a teacher or mentor you may also be the student! We all learn from each other. 

Are your beliefs flexible or rigid? 

You have a choice in your Spiritual pursuits.  What you believe and how you practice, do they still suit you?  This card shows a need to reflect upon your belief system. Do you follow along blindly because that is what you were taught to do from a young age or are you ready to buck the system and find your true calling?  

Conformity and conventional set ways of thinking where change may be difficult or, buck the system, the establishment of all that has been set in stone and follow your own inner song? 

What you do is up to you. Either way you go, get connected to Spirit.

The Lovers: Card of the Day 

July 30th: The Lovers

Two coming together to make one…

This is the card of love and relationships, balance, 2 opposites coming together.

Our love relationships bring about our greatest choices as these decisions are often long lasting. They offer us the greatest challenges and the greatest personal growth. 

We all enjoy security and comfort and the newness of a relationship can be frightening, however when this card appears the harmony, balance and love of this union is a welcome joyous feeling. 

Your passion, spirit, emotional and mental connection are in sync with each other. Two polarities are combined, the connection is magnetic, passionate, electric. 

Cupid has shot her arrow and love is blind, but you dont have to be stupid about it!

Be sure that any choices you make concerning your relationships today are well thought out.  Go forward in harmony, join forces to obtain a common goal, grow, challenge yourself  and today, enjoy some passion in your life people!

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 Hierophant

As I have seen, depending upon the author of the Tarot card deck that is being used this card has a few different names: The Hierophant, The Pope, The High Priest, or simply Faith.

img_20170212_122054

We see a man dressed in a robe and standing between two pillars indicating duality, in this case Spirit and Matter. The Hierophant is the bridge between the two. He is an older man indicating wisdom.

This card usually points to help from someone of trust, someone you look up to or hold in high regard. This doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be a man, just a person you are comfortable with and trust, they have knowledge about a subject that you do not yet possess. They are a ‘seer’.

This could be a mentor, teacher or a religious figure of course!

In addition this card also refers to large institutions that have a set way of doing things such as hospitals, educational establishments, government offices, churches, banks or other large organizations where rules are set and carried out without question. In order to gain entrance to one of these establishments you must embrace their doctrine, their set of beliefs so as to obtain their education and enjoy the tradition. All these institutions have a set way of working, of thinking and sometimes it can be very hard to implement change, even when the change would do some good.

When viewing the card as The Priest, men have become priests for all sorts of reasons. Some because it of ambition, family pressure or tradition although that is not seen so much these days there are a few that still feel a calling to God and choose this as their profession.

How do you discover and connect with God? In my opinion to discover the Spiritual within you must go into the deep crevices of your own mind and really clear out the cobwebs to make clear what you believe, know or think you know. This can be a bit treacherous as you must make some uncomfortable confrontations with your own beliefs. Perhaps it is time that you need to review and start recreating your own personal awareness of God?

When this card comes up it in a reading it can indicate that you are following traditional values. However, have you truly stopped to think about these? What do they mean to you? Are they in alignment with your ideas and feelings? Or are you just following along because this is the dogma you were taught and not allowed to ask questions so as to obtain a deeper knowledge?

Perhaps it’s time to find a deeper meaning to life by exploring your spiritual matters. Many are born into a religion and follow this without ever a second thought to the orthodoxy of it. Those that accept this continue on their rigid pathway and are usually dismissive of new ideas and information. Do you still accept these beliefs? Or are new ideas or even questions about the custom now coming to mind? If so, now would be a good time to connect to someone who is open to your questions.

The wise and patient counselor, teacher, elder will embrace you with open arms making you comfortable to be in their presence. They will listen to you and give advice but not the answers to all your questions. The Hierophant knows that the answers to your truths will need to be unlocked by you so the gain of deeper knowledge comes to you of your own volition. It’s okay to rock the boat a bit, that’s how eyes are opened, including your own!

The Magician

Here in the West we tend to see Magicians as tricksters or manipulators. Someone that may make a deal in order to gain personal power. Or, back in the days of the old, old west of one that would sell you some snake oil guaranteed to ease all your ailments.

My view is far different as I believe we are all Magicians, but not in the trickster or charlatan type of way. Why is this?

I feel that we are becoming more aware of our own Personal Power. This is the Perfect Power within, our Spirit. And the best part is nobody can take it away from you, of course unless you let them. Or … you don’t know you even have this in you. (Those New Year’s resolutions come to mind here!)

picsart_01-08-09-56-45

As we look at this card we see a man in a robe standing before an altar where the four elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water are all represented. He is bathed in a bright light, the link between the heavens and the earth to bring forth the manifestation of matter.  He draws the infinity symbol, representing infinite possibilities. The number One indicates creative potential and power, the beginning. By combining Personal Power with the natural elements he creates magic through the sheer force of his will.

The beautiful roses above The Magician show the emotional and creative power in our lives that need to be balanced and grounded so we can get value from it. Such as the rose that blooms effortlessly, we too will bloom where we are planted and effortlessly so, if we open up to the opportunities that lie within us.

Looking at the position of The Magician’s hands we see the one with the wand drawing the infinity symbol while the other points down towards the earth. This is representative of balance. Be open to Spirit which is in the Heavens so that you may bring down the infinite possibilities, opportunities and make them manifest into reality here on earth.

We often think of our dreams and heartfelt desires as being ‘up, out there, far out, wish upon a star’ type of thing and wanting them to come down to earth, to be grounded in reality. Think of it as grasping those possibilities and opportunities with your wand and channeling them down into reality here on earth. In order to do so we much engage with our Spirit.

By engaging with our Spirit we gain inspiration. This word when broken down: in-spirit-ion. Here we have the ‘in’ or ‘on’ prefix – spirit – and the suffix of –ion which means ‘to create’. When we have inspiration we are creating ‘In Spirit’.

This inspiration, the first actual step to finding the power within to begin your Journey. The Fool gave us the idea of starting something new while The Magician is the actual first step taken, our first action taken towards this something new that we have decided to manifest.

At times in our life we have feelings of great power which we enjoy and want to hold on to. However, when we hold on to them they seem to dissipate even faster. By holding on too tightly we are blocking the channels for more to come into our life. By remaining open minded The Magician receives in one hand, the hand held up to the heavens while the other hand directs, the hand pointed towards the earth where it is released into reality.

 

How are your New Year Resolutions holding up now that we are one week into this New Year of 2017? Some are probably coming along beautifully while others are already on the back burner. This is where you need to become the Magician.

How do you do this?

Gain your inspiration from above and connect with your Spirit. Find and harness your will-power, use it to manifest that which you desire here on earth in your life. It means taking your will-power and channeling it, releasing it in the specific direction you wish it to go.

Do you have a friend or know someone who always seems to get what they want in life? It’s because they are a Magician. They are directing their energy. Both their will-power and success come from their conscious use of their own Personal Power which is available to everyone. You have it in you, it’s up to you to use it. It is up to you to act upon it!

Act or react? Most people rarely act, they react to the events of their life. Meaning, their life happens TO them, they are not making their life as they go about living. The Magician tells us we have this power to create, to live an inspired life. Stop being knocked from one experience to the next.

Take action in your life! Take control of your own Personal Power, reclaim your inspiration, and direct your strength and will-power to the condition in which you want it to go. You can make your dreams come true, but you need to become The Magician. The Power is within you!

Remember: Act, don’t react!

Blessings on your Journey,

Tricia

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!

Tricia
