This weeks card comes from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck, I drew the Eight of Swords.
This card depicts a woman who is bound, and blindfolded. There are eight swords in the ground surrounding her. She feels helpless. But, the binds that tie her are loose; she could easily slip out of them, remove her blindfold and move the swords out of her way to free herself.
The Eight of Swords symbolizes that which you believe is holding you back, but, actually, it is only the perception of the situation that is holding you back. It is a representation of your inner fears and anxieties.
This week, you may believe that you have no control over a situation, and feel trapped by it. However there is likely a way around this, you just need to “open your eyes” and expand your ideas to see that you are not really trapped. It may take just a bit of work and overcoming your insecurities, but it is possible. You are not tied to your current situation, and not as helpless as you may think you are.
This week’s card comes from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck. I drew The High Priestess.
This card depicts a woman in spiritual robes, with a headpiece depicting the three phases of the moon. There is a curtain behind her blocking the view. But, when looking closely, you can see water behind the curtain, a lake.
The High Priestess appearing is an indication that this week is a time to withdrawal and reflect; to contemplate and seek peace more than the answers. As you are doing this, the answers may come.
The High Priestess may also indicate a secret that is being guarded, or there is some hidden aspect which could be having an affect on you. This could be a secret you are keeping, or one that is being kept from you by someone else. Or you are not seeing something which could be affecting you, it is hidden from your view and you may need to seek it out in order to find it. This is not intended to cause paranoia, but something to reflect upon. Use your intuition to help you.
Hello everyone! After a short break I am back at it. I needed the time to recharge, and welcome a new kitty to the family.
This week’s card is the Three of Cups / Puffin from Animal Totem Tarot.
The scene on the card is of the ocean shore. On top of each of the three upright cups stands a puffin. One has wings outstretched facing the sun looking ready to take off. The second has a bounty of fish being held in their beak. The third appears to be preening. They all seem to be enjoying their day.
Puffins have been connected to the spiritual realm because they have been compared to friars praying. When they are standing on the rocky cliffs, their heads bowed to the sea, they appear to be giving thanks and honoring their surroundings. But there are times when Puffins also seem to be joyful and having fun!
This week, while you are at work or doing the required mundane chores or duties, remember to also make time to have fun. Celebrate all the good that surrounds you. Stand in the sun’s warming light and feel the energy flow through you, enjoy a satisfying meal, get a new haircut or that fabulous smelling body wash or perfume/cologne you have had your eye on, or get a manicure/pedicure. Spend time with those you love.
Message from Puffin:
“All work and no play makes Puffin a very boring bird indeed. There must be balance in your life between the world you live in, the world your soul is in, and the joy you give for both. Which is why we party! Gather some friends and allow yourself to unwind; it’s time to take your serious face off and feel the fun of your physical journey.”
