Card of the Week: Judgement

Judgement card from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck.

I pulled the Judgement card from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck for the card of the week.

The image on this card is of the Resurrection, with people rising from the Earth up to an angel in the sky sounding a trumpet to call them.

The Judgement card symbolizes a call from within to make an important change. This change could be something mundane and immediate, an entire shift in a person’s outlook on life, or a spiritual awakening. Often, the change has already happened, it just needs to be recognized.

This week may be the time to heed the call, to release the past and start anew. Responding to the call could lead to a new, better life.

Card of the Week: Ten of Cups / Penguin

Ten of Cups / Penguin from Animal Totem Tarot.

This week I drew from Animal Totem Tarot. When I pulled the card I said out loud “Awwwww…”. The card is Ten of Cups / Penguin.

A penguin family is huddled together in front of an iceberg or snow-covered mountain with ten cups in an arc above them. The two adult penguins appear content, and the young penguin standing between the two adults appears joyful with it’s wings outstretched and head held high.

Their environment is barren, but yet they appear secure and fulfilled as they stand close together. Penguins survive and thrive by being in groups. This is their source of support and protection. 

If you have been doing things solo, it may be time to consider joining with another person, group or community to continue your journey and reach the next level to happiness and fulfillment, and possibly a sense of security. Good times are anticipated this week.

“Love, trust, and support are important elements to our Penguin culture. Without them, we would end up alone or in the jaws of one of our many predators. Yet despite the many dangers we face on a regular day, the most dangerous of all is being alone when the winter winds whip into our homes. Without the love and protection of our community we would never last and our way of life would be no more.” – Message from the Penguin

Card of the Week: The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man card from the Universal Waite Tarot deck.

I used the Universal Waite Tarot Deck to pull this week’s card. The card I drew was The Hanged Man. This card depicts a man hanging upside down from a tree. He is there by his own choosing. He is there to gain enlightenment; this is illustrated by a bright halo around his head. He is trying to gain wisdom through suffering, and has given up things that he is attached to in order to gain higher awareness. The Hanged Man symbolizes someone who views things differently than society out of attachment to a greater belief, even a reversal of previous attitudes.

Have your views changed? Have you developed an attachment to a greater belief? If not yet then you may find this happening this week. You could change your point of view about what you are putting your current efforts towards, or see that there is a need to view it from a different perspective.

This card may also indicate giving up something to gain something else. You may be giving up one thing, or need to give up something, in exchange for what you feel will be of greater benefit to you. It could be leaving behind a perspective or viewpoint. There may be a need to release ideas and associations that are obsolete, which could be affecting the development what you are putting your current efforts towards.

Have a blessed week.
