Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today
The Devil is the more perplexing cards one can draw in a reading. He represents all that most find undesirable, distasteful. He embodies the seven deadly sins (Lust, Gluttony, Avarice, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride). The Devil is evil personified. However, it is unlikely his presence in your cards means you are most suited to be a child of Satan. Think of the saying “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” The more plausible explanation is that you are actually quite moral, and feel a deep duty to oppose the dark forces The Devil embodies. This in no way implies you should establish your own inquisition, but simply that you are acutely aware of the destructive influences in our world and have the strength to resist them.
Use your powers of freedom and flexibility to drive your future.
The Chariot Tarot card 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 will power can be realized. This kind of charge makes more of the world accessible to one 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.
In the Advice Position
Look upon the movements of change as full of promise and adventure.
The card in the Advice position suggests a course of action which will harmonize what you want with what is currently possible.
The Chariot advises that you be prepared for changes that might include a move or an opportunity to travel. The Charioteer travels light and stays open to fresh experiences that change with every valley or mountain pass.
You may be asked to live out of a suitcase and consider every place your home for a while. Be receptive to new people who come into your life. Most especially, become more fluid and taste the joys of freedom. The Charioteer is nothing if not self-sufficient.
Be prepared and self-contained for the changes that will sweep in and carry you with them.
Your Weekly Tarot Card for February 19 – 25: Three of Pentacles
The Three Pentacles in this card’s illustration appear as crafted objects, each one a unique, well-executed design, turned to the front so we may have a clear view of the artist’s work. After overcoming self-doubts and other setbacks, it’s time to let others see the progress we’ve made. We’ve mastered the necessary skills and honed our creative thinking. Putting that to the test by showing our work is one of the challenges artists face when honing their craft. Receiving recognition for our work builds confidence and makes us want to persist. The Three of Pentacles could also be considered a card of teamwork in a way. Patronage by others increases potential by supplying various forms of fuel needed to keep the work going. Even if we ultimately create for ourselves, finding some way to mark or measure personal progress can keep inspiration alive.
Exercise for the Three of Pentacles: The big (or small) reveal
This week, find a way to show others what you’ve been working on. This could be anything from a formal exhibition, an open studio (interpret that term loosely so it applies to whatever you do!), a gift to someone, or even a blog/social media post. If what you have to show is not the finished version, label it as a work in progress, and allow the experience to help you later refine further based on feedback from others and your own refreshed perspective achieved through seeing your work in a new context. Tell others why you do what you do; this will provide interesting background for viewers (or listeners, readers, tasters, users, etc.) and will also remind you of the passion that motivates your efforts.
When you receive feedback, absorb it. Accept the compliments and believe them! Acknowledge the criticism, if any, with the grace of this month’s theme card, Strength. There’s no need to be defensive; critique is often what helps us move to the next level with our creative work.
Check out what others are up to online as well. Many people use hashtags like #workinprogress or #wip when they show their projects to get feedback and encouragement from the community.
