Your Tarot Card for Saturday, Sept. 13 is The Star

The Star


September 13th, 2014
What has traditionally been known as the Star card is about reconnecting one’s Soul with the Divine — the transcending of personality, family, community and reputation. It has to do ultimately with the freedom to be one’s Self. The Soul is responding to celestial influences — forces that can provide the personality with a stronger sense of purpose. The Star card helps us to remember our exalted origins and our attraction to a Higher Union.

This card could also be called the “Celestial Mandate” — that which refers us back to our reason for being, our mission in this lifetime. The Star reminds us that, in a sense, we are agents of Divine Will in our day-to-day lives. If we let go of the idea that we are supposed to be in control, we can more easily notice and appreciate the synchronicities that are nudging us along. In this way, we become more conscious of the invisible Helping Hand, and we better understand our place within — and value to — the larger Cosmos.

Your Tarot Card for September 12 is The Devil

The Devil


September 12th, 2014
What has traditionally been known as the Devil card expresses the realm of the Taboo, the culturally rejected wildness and undigested shadow side that each of us carries in our subconscious. This shadow is actually at the core of our being, which we cannot get rid of and will never succeed in taming. From its earliest versions, which portrayed a vampire-demon, this card evoked the Church-fueled fear that a person could “lose their soul” to wild and passionate forces.

The image which emerged in the mid-1700’s gives us a more sophisticated rendition — that of the “scapegoated Goddess,” whose esoteric name is Baphomet. Volcanic reserves of passion and primal desire empower her efforts to overcome the pressure of stereotyped roles and experience true freedom of soul. Tavaglione’s highly evolved image (Stella deck) portrays the magical formula for harnessing and transmuting primal and obsessive emotions into transformative energies. As a part of the Gnostic message of Tarot, this fearsome passion and power must be reintegrated into the personality, to fuel the soul’s passage from mortal to immoral.

Your Tarot Card for September 11th is Temperance

Temperance


September 11th, 2014
What is traditionally known as the Temperance card is a reference to the Soul. Classically female, she is mixing up a blend of subtle energies for the evolution of the personality. One key to interpreting this card can be found in its title, a play on the process of tempering metals in a forge.

Metals must undergo extremes of temperature, folding and pounding, but the end product is infinitely superior to impure ore mined from the earth. In this image, the soul volunteers the ego for a cleansing and healing experience which may turn the personality inside-out, but which brings out the gold hidden within the heart. (This card is entitled “Art” in the Crowley deck.)

Your Tarot Card for Wed., September 10th is The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man


September 10th, 2014
Traditionally, the card known as the Hanged Man usually indicates a lack of ability to help oneself through independent action. This energy is arrested and awaiting judgment. With this card, there is no avenue for the will to regain control until the situation has passed.

This represents a good time to be philosophical, to study and meditate upon the position you find yourself in, and form resolutions for the moment you become free again. Only those who possess wisdom, patience and optimism will be able to see through limitations, including possible humiliation, to grasp the inspiring lesson one can gain from such an experience.

Fear of Tarot Readings

Fear of Tarot Readings

Experts explain why Tarot cards are nothing to fear

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of tarot
 
 

Have you ever been scared to get a Tarot reading? Most people find the insight we can get from Tarot cards thrilling, but there are some who find the process intimidating or frightening. If you’re one of those few, it’s time to face your fear of Tarot so you can move past it.

We spoke with Tarot expert Jewels Edwards, a psychic and contemporary mystic in Portland, Ore., who has been using Tarot as a tool of insight for more than 20 years, to help explain why Tarot is frightening for some — and why it shouldn’t be.

“Tarot is simply a tool for receiving messages from other dimensions,” Edwards said. “It is not evil, harmful or tainted in any way. It’s a method to bring the information through with clarity and integrity.”

Edwards is able to use Tarot to “hear” messages from the spirit, higher consciousness or universal consciousness (whatever you choose to label it).

“Some people have heard or developed a belief that Tarot comes from the devil or is likely to bring in dark energy, but none of this is true,” Edwards said. “Tarot is only a tool, like a hammer, for bringing through information for the benefit of the questioner.”

You can change your future

But what if the information that comes through is something terrible you don’t want to hear? That’s the biggest fear for most when it comes to Tarot readings.

“The fear comes from being afraid that something horrific is going to show up, like a fatal disease, the death of a loved one, a divorce or breakup of some kind, or the ending of a job,” Edwards said. “If people do receive this kind of information, what is truly fear-provoking is that they won’t be able to change it and that they are stuck with that particular outcome.”

However, that’s not true. The whole point of doing a Tarot reading is so you’ll have the insight and advice you need to change your life for the better. “People are afraid because they believe they are helpless to change some negative future outcomes, but nothing is farther from the truth, Edwards said. “While difficult potential futures do sometimes show up, Tarot is only to show the questioner what is most likely to happen so they have the opportunity to change it.”

Your Tarot Card for Tuesday, September 9th is Justice

Justice

Traditionally, what has been known as the Justice card has to do with moral sensitivity and that which gives rise to empathy, compassion and a sense of fairness. Since the time of Solomon, this image has represented a standard for the humane and fair-minded treatment of other beings.

Often including the image of a fulcrum which helps to balance competing needs against the greater good, and a two-edged sword to symbolize the precision needed to make clear judgments, this card reminds us to be careful to attend to important details. It’s a mistake to overlook or minimize anything where this card is concerned. The law of Karma is represented here — what goes around comes around.

Your Tarot Card for Monday, Sept. 8th is Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune

The central theme of what is traditionally called the Wheel of Fortune card is cyclical change. The Wheel keeps on rolling, churning events in a ceaseless progression of ups and downs, either way freeing us from the past. No one can escape its cyclical action, which can feel somewhat terrifying — no matter whether we are rising or falling. When one is balanced on top there is a moment of crystal clarity, but the only part of the Wheel not going up and down is the hub, which is your eternal Self, the Source of Freedom.

Every one of us will occupy all the points on the wheel at some time or another. The cycle of the wheel is its lesson — and we can learn to take comfort in it (as we do when we celebrate our birthday). If you don’t like the look of things right now, just wait — things will change. Of course, if you do like the look of things right now, enjoy it while it lasts, because that will change too!

Your Tarot Card for September 5th is The Chariot

The Chariot


September 5th, 2014
Traditionally, the card usually entitled the Chariot points to a triumphal feeling of freedom, as if the charioteer is being paraded through the streets as a hero (or heroine). The card reflects congratulations for high achievement, and serves as a sign of empowerment.

Huge wheels and frisky steeds speed the rate at which the driver’s willpower can be realized. This kind of charge makes more of the world accessible to anyone ambitious enough to seize the Chariot’s reins. But there is danger in this feeling of freedom, because of the increased rate of change and its power to magnify mistakes in judgment. As a seasoned warrior, the Charioteer is called upon to be extra attentive to the way ahead.
