Card of the Week: The Lovers

The Lovers card from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck.

As I was shuffling for the card of the week, several cards jumped out, but only one card flipped up. The Lovers. This is the card of the week.

The Lovers card depicts a man and woman with an angel flying above them. The imagery is a nod to the Biblical description of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

This card could represent a relationship, or the need to make a choice. There may be a new relationship ahead, changes to your current relationship, or the need to confront an issue in a relationship.

This week, you may realize that changes need to be made, or that you need to make a decision. Gentle and honest reflection and communication will be necessary, either with yourself or someone close to you.

In the background there is a mountain, it seems to stand between the man and woman. There may be something which challenges your current philosophies, or is blocking your communication, but it needs to be confronted before you can move forward. The angel in the card signifies that Divine inspiration is there to help guide you as you communicate and make your decision.

Card of the Week: The Magician

From the Universal Waite Tarot Deck, The Magician appeared as this week’s card.

The card depicts a magician holding a wand up with one hand, and his other hand is pointing down. On the table in front of him are tools that he uses. There are lush flowers above him and on the ground below him. The Magician is someone who can manifest power; he can channel energy and bring things into reality. He is confident in his abilities, and uses them wisely.

New experiences may present themselves to you this week. It could be in the form of something new happening, or that you are given an opportunity that you may need or want to take action on. The Magician indicates that you have the potential to control your environment. You have the knowledge and the tools. This knowledge can empower you and allow you to realize that you have the power within you and the resources around you to manifest the reality you desire.

Card of the Week: Strength

Strength card from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck.

This week, I drew the card of the week from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck. I pulled Strength.

This card depicts a woman with a lion; she seems to have control over the lion in a confident, yet loving way. This card could symbolize the strength you have in your potential, and the confidence you have. It’s there even if you don’t see it right now.

This week, realize that you have the ability to deal with whatever life may bring. Any challenges that you face you most likely will conquer with your gentle, yet firm, strength.

Think about the challenges you have overcome in your life, and use this to inspire and give you confidence. You may find that strength within you that is based on the wisdom and knowledge you have gained through your experiences, and the belief you have for yourself.

Learn to trust your own abilities. This could lead to self-empowerment. It could permeate your Spirit, and have a strong affect on how you view things in your life.
