Tarot Oct 20 2019

Today
VIII of Wands – Quick Action, Conclusion, News
Taking quick action, declaring self openly, striking while iron is hot
Culminating an effort, having all elements come together, finding a successful resolution
Receiving news
Before acting, we think, imagine, speculate, talk and dream. This is the realm of air – the sky. Then, finally, we decide to make our move. We bring our ideas down to earth and put them into action.  Strike while iron hot. News could come in disguised form so be on lookout. Celebrate past, be prepared to move onto something new.

Past, present, future
Past – ace of Pentacles: Working with physical, becoming involved with nature, working on phys health, having real-world contact, drawing to you what you need, increasing assets, using common sense, tools at hand, operating from a known position,
having a support system – Foundation building
Present – Ace of Wands: Opening to greater possibilities, conceiving a dream, coming up with a solution. Sustaining optimism. Believing in self, knowing things will work out. Going beyond my limits. Going for it. – Seed of bold enthusiasm has been planted in my life. Look for the path that will excite me. Time of passion and beginning. Trust own creative potential, and there will be no limit.
Future – The Hanged Man: Having an emotional release, ending the struggle, accepting God’s will. Upending the old order. Pausing to reflect. Taking time to just be. Putting others firsts.
Main lesson – we win by surrendering. We can “move forward” by standing still. By suspending time, we can have all the time in the world.
When we most want to force our will on someone, that is when we should release. When we most want to have our own way, that is when we should sacrifice.

When we most want to act, that is when we should wait. The irony is that by making these contradictory moves, we find what we are looking for.

Past, present, future
Past – Reversed IV of Pentacles – So was on way to wanting to possess, hanging on, being greedy. Wanting to be in charge, insisting on my own way. Wanting everything to stay the same, refusing to look at new approaches, stagnating, holding onto the present, resisting the flow. Should preserve and defend but not lay claim.
Present – VII of Cups – Dreaming, building castles in the air, waiting for my ship to come in. Facing an array of choices, believing in limitless possibilities, getting to pick and choose. Overindulging, letting everything go, becoming disorganized, neglecting health, addictive patterns, procrastinating.
“Isn’t it more fun to just let everything go?” Look at situation is it too rigid or too lazy. Commit self to what it takes to reach goals.
Future – V of Wands – Times when the environment is fighting you. Nothing going smoothly.  NOT MAJOR BLOCKAGES just minor irritating ones. Competition may come up but can be divisive so work toward cooperation.

Future
The Devil
submitting to another, overindulging the senses, fearing the unknown, seeing a cold world, foreseeing a bleak future, doubting
Card letting know caught in unhealthy, unproductive situation, might be ignorant of the truth and its implications. Obsessed by person, idea, addiction or patterns I know bad for me (or maybe don’t). Sometimes this card reflects back the negativity that has made you doubt yourself and your future.  *Examine my assumptions carefully.
*Make sure you are not working from a false picture of yourself and the situation. Hold fast to the highest vision of who you are.

Tarot Oct 9 2019

making a strong impact, having vitality, creating miracles, becoming energized, feeling vigorous, being creative
the power to tap universal forces and use them for creative forces, my will helps me achieve what seem to be miracles.
What makes the Magician so powerful? First, she is not afraid to act. She believes in herself and is willing to put that belief on the line. She also knows what she intends to do and why. She doesn’t hesitate because he understands his situation exactly. The Magician can focus with single-minded determination. As long as he remembers the divine source of his power, the Magician remains the perfect conduit for miracles.

Control is impossible. We stand in the world as in a great ocean. Who could manage or possess such power? The only way to keep from drowning is to ride the currents. The ocean will support us as long as we swim with the flow. [SELF – Steps 1 2 and 3! 🙂 ]

Past, Present, Future:
Past – reversed – WAS DEVELOPING: Ace of Swords: fortitude, resolving a situation, finding the strength to overcome, wanting what is fair, accepting responsibility, finding out what is real, call to justice, finding out what is real, faced challenge with courage, honesty, and a firm resolve
Present – 4 of Pentacles: keeping what you have, hanging on to someone, denying weakness, setting limits and rules, creating order, maintaining the status quo, resisting change, obstructing new developments, stagnating, holding onto the present, resisting the flow. Hmmm. Some control is valuable. Desire for control can get out of hand. Weigh carefully the level of control in the situation. Use the energy of this card to preserve and defend, but not to lay claim. People need to be free to determine their own lives. The Four of Pentacles also implies blocked change. It’s as if the stubborn little man on the card is thwarting your every move. Opposition may come from those who want to maintain the status quo. It may also come from within yourself. Are you resisting change that is truly needed? We often cling to the familiar even when we know it’s not for the best. Lesson: Control is not possible.We stand in the world as in a great ocean. Keep from drowning by riding the currents. The ocean will support us as long as we swim with the flow.
Future: self-absorbed, apathetic, meditative, getting lost in reverie
Hmmm.
