This weeks randomly drawn card is The High Priestess from the Wild Unknown Tarot.
This cards theme is all about connecting to the intuition, dreams and mysteries. The tiger is pictured against a night sky with a crescent moon illuminating the darkness. Between her paws there is an orb or sphere swirling with colours of blue and purple. These are considered colours of the intuition and spiritual receptivity. The tiger has a relaxed posture, suggesting that she has complete confidence in her intuitive hunches. She knows how to be immersed in the world of visions, mystery and the psyche without being overwhelmed.
This is also a time when a vast ocean of creative potential can burst forth. She is alive and inspired, and aware that the only thing limiting her vast potential is her own negative thoughts and behaviour. This simple realisation unleashes her creativity like a wild fire which rages in her wake and adds a sense of aliveness and inspiration.
She trusts completely in the divine plan and direction without anxiety, doubt or fear. All which occurs is part of the divine perfection playing out in her life.
Until next week,
This weeks randomly selected card is The Chariot, picturing a beautiful white horse, mane flying as she gallops towards us, fixing us in her direct gaze.
She looks like a force of nature, unstoppable and sure footed. If we get in her way we run the risk of being trampled underfoot!
The Chariot is a card which symbolises an energy of determination, drive and will power. The Sun, Moon and Pentacle depicted on the card are in alignment signifying that the way to accomplish our goals is by taking action guided by our intuition. This is the way to bring our dearly held ambitions into physical reality. This horse has a deep sense of purpose and trusts that she is headed in the right direction. Notice that she has no rider or bridle…..this symbolises that she is in control of her path and is master of her own destiny.
So the energies at work for the upcoming week suggest that we will achieve most success by dealing with any challenges, obstacles or problems head on. It is imperative that we maintain focus, determination and confidence in our abilities and do not allow ourselves to be knocked off course.
In a work situation this could mean that you will need to take the reins and assert yourself. Show self discipline to get the respect you deserve from colleagues and do not allow others to push you around.
In a relationship, The Chariot could signify that it is time to pursue your own goals, and do the things you want. If you have made many sacrifices along the way to meet the needs of others, then now is your time!
As always with tarot, we can come up against this energy in a myriad different ways either within ourselves or others.
It could be that we will encounter another individual who embodies the energy of The Chariot, and comes across as highly action orientated and motivated, refusing to let anything get in their way as they focus on what they wish to accomplish.
On the flip side The Chariot personality can also be extremely headstrong and a force to be reckoned with. On a more negative note this determination and assertion can sometimes swing towards aggressive, bullying behaviour. If you encounter a character who displays these traits this week then it may be best to remove yourself from their influence until they simmer down and work things out for themselves.
On a more literal level The Chariot can also symbolise a physical move, such as a new home, job or travel.
I hope this card reading has given you all a heads up regarding the type of energy which may be at work during the upcoming week. Let me know in the comments if you have any experiences you would like to share about how The Chariot has manifested in your life this week!
This card talks about conflict and the sometimes unforeseen consequences of it. I think that the adage “choose your battles wisely” is a very important concept when studying this card as it reminds us that sometimes when we get involved in conflicts with others, it is not without high cost to ourselves, even if we “win”.
The guy in this card looks a little smug, but it seems he has lost almost everything by engaging in this particular battle. Yes, he has most of the swords, symbolising victory, but he has lost the shirt on his back in the process.
This card spells out the unpalatable truth about conflict and shows us that sometimes it is better to just walk away. If it is just a matter of always needing to be right, or in control, or trying to stop our pride or ego taking a dent, is it really worth the hassle of embroiling ourselves in a battle with someone? We may win the argument, but at what cost? Sometimes we do more damage to ourselves by pursuing something that is better left alone. We may end up losing friends, family, the respect of others and our own self respect in the process. A high price to pay for a conflict, that in the grand scheme of things was not, in the final analysis, worth the heartache.
This weeks randomly selected card is the Wheel of Fortune, which is a mystical, mysterious card. It speaks of fate, chance and destiny and the weaving of the intricate tapestry of life.Often the twists and turns of fate can feel random and arbitrary. But what if there is inherent meaning in everything, and interconnection between the complex patterns woven into the Universe? Just because these relationships are too tangled to unpick doesn’t mean that they don’t exist and give a deeper meaning to our existence.
Life is a delicate balance and we all experience joy and pain as an integral part of our journey. It is vital to embody the wisdom of the owl and know that all is in constant flux. The trick is to try and achieve balance and inner harmony no matter what is happening in our lives. We judge things as good or bad, but how do we really know until further down the road? The Wheel of Fortune expresses the truth that everything happens for a reason, and there is always a lesson to be learned from our experiences. There is nothing to fear, as depicted by the bright stars twinkling in the night sky. All we can do is embrace it all and use our intuition (symbolised by the owl and the crescent moon) to navigate any stormy waters. It won’t see us go wrong.
The Wheel of Fortune can indicate a ‘stuck’ energy where we need to be reminded that positivity moves us forward whereas negativity keeps us tangled and stuck. We must keep in mind when we are feeling trapped and stuck that the wheel is constantly turning. Change is always happening and things will get better. It is only a matter of time until the daytime comes back around again as everything is cyclical.
The archetype of this card puts me in mind of the quotation
“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
