Tapping Into Tarot for Self Improvement

Forget fortune-telling, tarot has many more applications as we’ve suggested previously in Uses for Tarot Cards. In this post, we’re going to focus on using the cards for self improvement and learning how to apply them to strengthen your optimism and resilience. Two qualities we all need to live life fully.

We’re going to give you two exercises, which you can do in order, or just pick the one you like. There are no rules.

Grab Your Tarot Deck

Firstly, of course, you need a tarot deck. It’s completely up to you which one you use. Just make sure the images speak to you. The idea is to let them open up new possibilities and to help you extend your thoughts and emotions. If the artwork doesn’t appeal to you, it’s not going to help. Pen and paper will also be necessary.

Your Daily Witches Rune for June 17

The Wave

Meaning: This rune symbolizes your friends and family and their influence upon you. Its meaning is usually derived from the other stones closest to it. This rune is also associated with travel. A journey abroad is indicated especially if the Sun rune is nearby, but a journey for someone close to you if the Moon stone is closest. If it is near to the Rings it foretells a holiday or long distance relationship.

Your Daily Tarot Card for Today is Strength

Keywords: inner strength, vision, self control!Astrological Correspondence: LeoThe Strength card, depicting a gracious queen-like figure and a wild lion, shows that real strength has to be combined with graciousness and gentleness to become a force. It symbolizes inner strength, determination to overcome obstacles, self-knowledge and self-discipline, as only when we know ourselves and act in a responsible manner will we be able to deal with challenging situations and overcome difficulties successfully. Yet this card not only represents physical strength; moral and emotional strength are also included in the meaning. Patience, compassion, dealing with frustration, accepting of others, and tolerating imperfection (in oneself and in others) all leads to being a complete person. The negative qualities of Strength include misuse of power, aggressiveness, and intolerance.

Your Daily Tarot Love Card for April 30th is The Hermit

The reversed Hermit asks you to think about whether you miss appropriate partnerships because you place yourself in inappropriate relationships. Mismatched relationships represent little common ground, but they often become battlegrounds. When we are lonely, we are more likely to make poor love choices. If you are in a union, do you feel lonely and misunderstood? It is time to correct that situation. Talk about it with your partner.

Your Tarot Power Card for Today is Strength

You have always been a strong person, as would quickly be seconded by your friends and family. However, strength without control is meaningless. Your biggest enemy is not drive, but direction. If you forget what is truly important in your life, such as love and faith, then you can find yourself using brute strength to get through the day just scraping by at work and in your relationships. Be aware of how your efforts align with your values in life.

Your Daily Career Tarot Card for Today is The Star

When you get the Star card in a reading, you can look forward to a time of rest and rejuvenation in regard to your work and career. You may have the opportunity now to take a vacation or, at the very least, you can get a break from your regular routine. Take full advantage of this time, soaking up whatever healing, nourishing, and enlivening opportunities come your way.

Your Daily Ogham Reading

Beith-Birch

The Birch tree is known as a pioneering species, which means it is often first to colonize open ground following a disturbance or fire. Because of this natural fact Beith is the first letter of the Ogham alphabet. It symbolizes birth, renewal, and new beginnings. The Beith symbol appearing is a true sign that a change has occurred or will occur.

Fortune – Drawing this Ogham is a way of telling you to look for a new path, a necessary change is on the way!

Quert-Apple

In many religious traditions the apple is a mystical or forbidden fruit. Yet to the Celts it was the food of the Gods. Despite it’s often bad reputation it is clear that the apple is a source of nutrition, health, and sustenance. That is why we read this ogham letter has having to do with life, health, and healing… a Quert a day keeps the bad vibes away!

Fortune – Take a good look at your mental and physical health. This Ogham is a warning to be mindful of nutrition and healing, take care of yourself!

Straif-Blackthorn

This thorny tree is known for it’s negative uses over the years. It has been used for cattle proofing with its thorns, the berries have been turned into alcohol, and the thorns were once dipped in poison as a weapon. Drawing this letter brings forth ideas of pain, negativity, pessimism, and potential conflict. If Straif comes up in your reading it is very wise to pay attention to any warnings.

Fortune – This Ogham can denote very bad signs ahead. Pay very close attention to matters in life that way you can avoid the warning that you were given

Bake up a loaf of wheat bread for the family, and celebrate abundance and be thankful for all that you have.

Conjure up a witchy craft and create a philter or two for your magickal needs. Work with the deities and the magickal plants corresponding with Thursday.

Your Lucky Tarot Cards for July 23rd

Your Lucky Tarot Cards for Today

These cards represent elements that favor you.

The Emperor

The Emperor is gifted with the skills to successfully lead others. He can turn chaos into order, provide structure to that which is unbound. He is quick of mind and confident in his power and right to rule, and does so in a just manner. Although stern by nature, he truly is the ultimate father figure. He will provide as needed, teach those with unanswered questions, protect the vulnerable, set and maintain boundaries. His perfect world runs on schedule and is free of any disturbances. What the Emperor must be wary of is setting boundaries and rules where none are needed. If he isn’t he may well become a tyrant.

When The Hierophant or Justice are among your personal cards, the influence of The Emperor may be increased. Having The Empress in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Emperor.

 

 

 

 

The Fool

This card represents the dreamer in you, the idealist, the mystic. The Fool desires to do great things, but is often unaware of just how difficult great things are to do. He must always be very careful of the choices he makes, and remember knowledge is his ally. The Fool often symbolizes a new beginning, unrestrained optimism, and curiosity that hasn’t been dulled by time. While The Fool may well indicate a lack of experience or grasp of the pitfalls along the path he is taking, it is equally true that his lack of experience leads him to believe all things are possible, which brings even impossible goals within his grasp.

When The Hanged Man or The Star are among your personal cards, the influence of The Fool may be increased. Having The Devil in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Fool.

Gathering bluebells, jasmine, gardenias, or white roses to create a little garden witchery with the flowers that are associated with the moon

Your Lucky Tarot Cards for Friday, June 26th

Your Lucky Tarot Cards for the Day

These cards represent elements that favor you.

Justice

Justice signifies the principle that although things sometimes seem askew the Universe is ultimately fair. We may not see or understand why things happen, but most of us sense there is in fact a reason and that balance exists even when we cannot see it. Justice denotes fairness regardless of who you are. At its purest the forces embodied by Justice give us the power to see without bias, and the courage to be accountable for our actions. These powers also test our faith at times. These powers also give us the tools and strength to fight injustice in our everyday life. All we have to do is use them.

When The Emperor is among your personal cards, the influence of Justice may be increased. Having The Devil in your personal cards may diminish the influence of Justice.

 

 

The High Priestess

Completely feminine and the counterpart to The Magician, the High Priestess is the Gatekeeper of the subconscious, the unknown. She travels in worlds which most of us only glimpse in our dreams. Her realm is that of unseen truths, untapped potentials, and hidden dangers. The Calling of The High Priestess is to go beyond the obvious and visible to tap those powers which are veiled from normal vision. While she is passive by nature, she has the power to uncover unknown potential and is very aware of the infinite potential all humans harbor within them. She is also very patient. She can wait for events to blossom in their own time.

When The Hermit or Hanged Man are among your personal cards, the influence of The High Priestess may be increased. Having the Magus in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The High Priestess.
