Tarot Tuesday- Get Moving!

Today's Tarot Tuesday reading is also using oracle cards for further clarification. This was really fun! The tarot cards are by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine. The oracle cards are "Trust Your Vibes" by Sonia Coquette. As always, the reading applies from today until Monday. It is for anyone who reads this post on the fan page or the blog.

The first position is the current situation and includes the first two cards pictured. The first card is the Knight of Earth – this indicates that you are taking action in earthly matters. You are in charge and are steady, capable, and dependable in whatever you are taking on. The second card – share a breath – indicates that you are very in sync with those in your care or under your direction. Breathing consciously is very grounding, which goes perfectly with our Knight of Earth. 

The second position is advice. The first card is the Knight of Air. The Knight of Air acts quickly and uses creative solutions and thinks outside the box for any challenges he encounters. The second card suggest that you exercise in order to raise your vibration and clear the way for those creative solutions to make their way into your field of awareness. Any exercise that calls to you is beneficial in this and many other ways, but if you are considering something new or something you have not done in a a while, this is a sign that you should definitely try that. Also, this suggests that you act more quickly as the Knight of Earth stays in the planning stage for a very long time, but the Knight of Air often acts without a plan. The advice is to leave the planning stage and enter the acting stage based on your plans. Creative activity, such as painting, drawing, sewing, singing, acting, dancing, etc. are also recommended for grounding, centering, and connecting with your higher self for increased flow and the opportunities to be aware of said creative solutions. 

The third position is outcome. The first card is the eight of Air, which indicates that any feelings of entrapment are illusions and there is actually a way out within your grasp. By using the creative solutions mentioned above, you will break out of any self-imposed limitations. Think carefully about what those might be. The second card is body talk. This card indicates that you can tune in to what your body is telling you in order to navigate your way out. When thinking about possibilities, is your chest tight or does it feel open and joyful? Does your stomach churn, or is it calm and radiating confidence? Yes's expand the body and no's contract the body, so those sensations give you your answers.

In summary, this week is about being grounded through breath and exercise in order to find creative solutions. (Yoga is an excellent option using breath and body). Stay in tune with your body in order to deeply connect with your angels and guides.

Tarot Tuesday- Trust the Grand Plan

Here is your reading (whomever is reading = you) for today through Monday!

Current Situation- 6 of Fire (Wands)- This card showed up as the outcome a couple of weeks ago and now we have it as the current situation, so we really have come full circle. You are feeling victorious, perhaps even in the public eye or in the eyes of others, and the work you have done is paying off in an internal, self-rewarding way. It really does strike me that this card is related to the former reading, so take a look back and think about what internal work you have done for yourself.

Your Expectations- The Sun- Again, victory is mentioned. You are feeling good about something and expect to reap those rewards. The path to enlightenment is clearing as you dig away at your psyche's layers.  Here comes the sun! (doo-doo-doo-doo) If this feels ironic to see such a bright card given your  current state, remember that experiencing the darkness allows the light to enter. You know that by allowing your feeling to surface and doing spiritual work, you pave the way for brighter days.

Hidden Influences- 5 of Water (Cups)- You've experienced a loss and are in the throws of really feeling that loss. Be sure to grieve properly, but also remember what you still have and that there is always a Bigger reason for loss. Trust that you learn from loss and grow as a result. Even losing parts of yourself that you know no longer serve you can be difficult. Embrace the resistance and your grip will dissolve. There is always something to be thankful for, and remembering that is helping you move forward. The Full Moon is in Scorpio tomorrow night, so we are uncovering mysteries and transforming ourselves as only Scorpio can. Full moons are a time of release, and Scorpio is embracing the shadow self and rising from the ashes once you allow yourself to burn.

Advice- High Priestess- Pay attention to the hidden information ^^, especially that which comes to you in dreams and flashes of insight. Trust your intuition and be patient when looking to the future. Take a broader perspective; see things from the Soul's Eye View. What you valued even a couple of weeks ago (when setting intentions during the new moon), may no longer hold value. Release, let things dissolve, and let the dust settle before planning far into the future. Sit with this. Observe what is left once you've let go of what was holding you back. Are you holding on to ideas and feelings about what you thought was supposed to be important to you, but doesn't really hold water in the grand scheme of things? Make the connection with your Higher Self and notice your feelings without judgement. Emotions are guideposts to let you know which way to turn on your path. They aren't meant to be suppressed or ignored. Though society acts as the collective Ego and tells you being "too emotional" is wrong or bad for you, really they are saying they don't want to do the work of looking at their own feelings because it is hard, it is "inconvenient", and they would rather do other things that the material world "values". Honor your Spiritual nature. You are a Spiritual being having a human experience. The whole point in you being here is for your Soul to learn. Ask your Soul what she-he wants to learn through this human experience. To accept love? To grow and trust life?

Outcome- The Knight of Air (Swords)- by not rushing in and making a plan from the Big Picture, you speed along to the results you _actually_ want, not the results you think you want. Use creativity and heal. You'll live creatively because your Soul's true nature is that of an Artist's.

Tarot Tuesday with the World's Tiniest Tarot Deck!

EEE! I'm so excited I finally got to use this deck! It's a Rider-Waite-Smith deck in miniature! So fun!

This week's reading shows that you are juggling two worlds to try to stay balanced. It may be work and family, two jobs, or your spiritual world and the material world. If you are trying to make a decision, a lighter, more playful approach will help. You are expecting dramatic emotions, perhaps immature ones. But, you also realize that our existence here is like a play and our roles are but parts in a play. We learn about the human experience by choosing different roles, but we are all on equal footing and are all "practicing". A new passion/opportunity is contributing behind the scenes, and likely making you wonder how to fit it all in. By choosing to walk away from the drama and move forward, you learn the lessons you need to and wanted to learn in this lifetime and complete a level of spiritual enlightenment. Fully feel and experience the emotions that come up, and then let them go when you have used them to guide you.
