Monthly Tarot Card Forecast: Sept. 2015

Emotional baggage, changes, and the will to move forward!

Brigit Esselmont

Hi, I’m Brigit Esselmont, professional Tarot reader and teacher! Today I have for you a very special Tarot card forecast for the month of September. What I’ll be doing is drawing three cards: one for the blessings of this month, one for the challenges of this month, and our final card for how we can make the most of the month ahead…

Blessings/Opportunities Card: Eight of Cups, Reversed

Now, the first card that I drew, for our opportunities, is the Eight of Cups, Reversed. You can see that there’s a man who’s turned his back on the eight cups and he’s decided to walk away from them, leaving behind the emotional stuff (so what we can see in those cups), the emotional baggage, I suppose, and deciding to walk away from that.

Now, in the reverse position, and knowing that this is about our blessing and opportunities this month, you may find in September it actually serves you well to let go of the stuff that’s disappointing you recently.

Challenges Card: Death, Reversed

With our challenges, we’ve got the Death card, Reversed. It does look like quite a scary card with the figure of Death on the horse, but it’s really about death and transformation. And when it’s appearing in the reverse position, and particularly when it’s appearing as a challenge, what I see coming out with this card is that there may be some resistance to change.

Now with the Eight of Cups, Reversed, it’s important to walk away from something right now that has been disappointing. With the Death, Reversed card there may be some resistance as you go along, with that. So really have a think about, “What, right now, during this month, is changing for me? What skin am I shedding? What parts of myself do I need to let go of, in order for something new to grow?”

Maybe there’s a really good outcome if you can leave behind something that’s no longer working for you. So just really tune into any feelings around resisting change.

Recommendation Card: Two of Pentacles

For our card for how we can make the most of this month, we’ve got the Two of Pentacles. And you can see this guy, juggling coins, and it’s almost like he’s doing a bit of a dance. And it’s about just the stuff of life, the day-to-day demands, about managing your To Do list. This card’s just saying to you, “Keep on top of your affairs, keep on top of your money, keep on top of your responsibilities.” Set out a plan if you need to — schedule for the month ahead — and that will help to balance things out.

At a deeper level, remember, you are dealing with some big changes, and the opportunities are about leaving behind something that’s no longer working, and at the some time making sure that everything is running smoothly.

Embrace all of that change and transformation that is surrounding all of us, and make the most of it!

I look forward to connecting with you again for our next month’s forecast.

Monthly Tarot Card Forecast: July 2015

 

 

 

Monthly Tarot Card Forecast: July 2015

Find out what this month’s 3-card Tarot reading means for you!

Hi, I’m Brigit Esselmont, professional Tarot reader and teacher, and I’m here to share with you today the Tarot Card Forecast for July 2015. Now as always I’ve drawn three cards for this month ahead, and the first card is around blessings, the second card is around the challenges for the month, and the third card is kind of like a recommendation for what you can do to make this a fabulous, fabulous month. So let’s get into it…

 

Blessings Card: Three of Wands, Reversed

We start with the Three of Wands Reversed as our Blessing. Now, when we look at this card upright we can see this man and he’s standing on a hill and he’s looking out across the ocean where he’s seeing some ships passing by and there’s another land far, far away. And, to me this is a card about: one, kind of like expanding new horizons, but two, thinking about what comes next. What’s next in your journey? Where will your travels take you next?

And certainly when we look at the Three of Wands but in the reversed position, we know that this card is about looking to expand your horizons, but on a more personal and private level, hence the reversal of this card. So the blessing here in the month of July is that you’ve got the opportunity here to re-evaluate and reassess your own personal goals, and particularly on the level of your spiritual goals or your personal development goals — that’s certainly captured in this being a reversed card, and the Wands. So I really do encourage you this month to really think about:

  • Where is it that I’m heading?
  • Is this right for me?
  • Are my goals truly aligned to what I know of my soul’s purpose?

Now you might get to a point where you go, “Oh my goodness you know what? I was heading on this path, but now I realize that in fact I need to be heading on this path, and maybe I’ve just taken the wrong turn, and the last few months have been a complete waste of time.” I really want you to know this, that it’s not a waste of time. In fact, you are exactly where you need to be. That’s the really important thing to think about here. So even though you might need to take a slight change in direction, it’s all meant to be, that’s just the way it’s meant to be. And so, I really encourage you to feel OK about changing your path and changing your direction with that card. Now let’s have a look at our Challenges for this month…

Challenges Card: Five of Wands

And we’ve got the Five of Wands. Now if you have a look at this card you’ll notice that there are five people clashing and fighting. Now, this is clearly a card of conflict, tension, disagreement, and so on. So, I’m so sorry but I think for the month of July, it’s likely that you’re going to find yourself in a position where you disagree with the opinions of other people, and things can get a little bit heated. So you might find yourself in a couple of arguments, surrounded by conflict, rubbing people the wrong way… Some of this is a bit out of your control; you know sometimes there are folks out there who will just get upset no matter what you say. But if you find that there’s a way for you to find more of a compromise, I suppose, then I really do encourage you to take it.

Because I think tempers can easily get pushed over the edge this month, and people will seem to be getting a little bit protective of their thoughts and opinions, so the more that you can take a more peaceful approach, the better. So just watch out for those potential conflicts and tension, and see how you can make the most of it by bringing about peace and calm. And just remember: diversity in opinion is OK, but it’s about creating a constructive environment for that to happen in. So, make sure you’re the bigger person and you’re creating that very constructive environment.

Recommendation Card: Death

Now our last card is about what we can do this month in order to manifest the goals that we truly desire. And I’ve drawn the Death card. Now, I know there are probably some of you looking at this going, “Oh my goodness, what does that mean? The Death card, that sounds terrible…” Trust me, this card is OK. It doesn’t have to be a scary card. In fact the Death card is all about change and transformation. So as you’re looking to this month ahead, think about:

  • What are some of the layers I can let go of this month?
  • What is no longer serving me?
  • What new things can I allow to come forth?

And I think this is a really lovely card to look at against the Three of Wands Reversed. The reason for this is remember with the Three of Wands Reversed, we may be reassessing our goals, and reassessing our path, and I want you to know that with the Death card, that that’s OK. In fact, that’s actually a really good thing if you’re saying, “I’ve been following this path for a while, but I know that it’s no longer really fitting into where I really want to head in my life, and so I’m going to shed that skin.” And that’s OK. That’s a good thing. That’s what’s going to create an amazing, fabulous month for you — if you can let go of what’s not serving you.

And certainly with the Death card, it’s also a sign that change is coming through whether you like it or not. And we can choose how to respond to change. We can choose to resist it and go, “Oh I don’t know, I like everything that’s set,” or we can say, “Yeah, change is as good as a holiday. I can deal with change.” So I really encourage you to embrace the positive aspects of change this month and look for opportunities to create transformation, particularly as it relates to your goals and your personal spiritual goals this month.

So, with that, I wish you the very best for this month ahead. I hope you have an absolute gorgeous month, and I look forward to connecting with you again very soon.

Your Tarot Card for Monday, May 12th is Justice

Justice

Monday, May 12th, 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 Daily Tarot Card for April 24th – Temperance

Temperance

Thursday, Apr 24th, 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 Thursday, April 17th is The Lovers

The Lovers

Thursday, Apr 17th, 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although it has taken on a strictly romantic revision of meaning in some modern decks, traditionally the Lovers card of Tarot reflected the challenges of choosing a partner. At a crossroads, one cannot take both paths. The images on this card in different decks have varied more than most, because we have had so many ways of looking at sex and relationships across cultures and centuries.

Classically, the energy of this card reminded us of the real challenges posed by romantic relationships, with the protagonist often shown in the act of making an either-or choice. To partake of a higher ideal often requires sacrificing the lesser option. The path of pleasure eventually leads to distraction from spiritual growth. The gratification of the personality eventually gives way to a call from spirit as the soul matures.

Modern decks tend to portray the feeling of romantic love with this card, showing Adam and Eve at the gates of Eden when everything was still perfect. This interpretation portrays humanity before the Fall, and can be thought to imply a different sort of choice — the choice of evolution over perfection, or the choice of personal growth through relationship — instead of a fantasy where everything falls into place perfectly and is taken care of without effort.

Today’s Tarot Card for Feb. 19th is The Hermit

The Hermit

Wednesday, Feb 19th, 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The challenge of what has traditionally been known as the Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals and Nature herself.

While the hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit cards, more modern ones have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with Nature.
