This is Your Daily Tarot Map for Thursday January 14, 2016 – Using Tarot To Create the Life you want (transcript below).
Today, we continue our work with the Crystal Visions Tarot by Jennifer Galasso.
So the three cards drawn randomly from the Crystal Visions Tarot today were: Queen of Wands, The Lovers, 7 of Swords
The first card in our draw today is the Queen of Wands, a powerful card of will and determination. She’s depicted here with a lion, a symbol of power and strength, reminiscent of the Strength card in the Major Arcana. This is a card of energy and and will, often representing someone who’s larger than life. With strong focus, she soars in whatever she does, much like the eagle flying overhead. Her razor-like focus assists her in achieving whatever she sets out to do. I often see this card as the archetypal career person.
Sometimes however, she gets so caught up in ambition that she may neglect her loved ones. The Lovers card, the second card in our draw, depicts a couple in an embrace, being tied together by two doves flying overhead.
Now given that the Lovers card is ruled by Gemini, it can often point to a need for communication in a relationship. Because it’s situated next to the driven and high-energetic Queen of Wands makes me think that some of you may be so focused on your work, goals or career that may have been neglecting the people in your life. There may even be a decision that you’ve been contemplating but have neglected to discuss it with your spouse, partner or family.
When we’re wrapped up in our work, talking about what we’re doing may not even cross our mind. However, to others, it may come across as being tricky, sneaky or even deceitful as suggested by our last card, the 7 of Swords.
Here we see a winged-figure trying to protect his or her swords from the crows that are stealing them. We’ve already seen this card once this week and if you remember, it points to deception and sneakiness. Making decisions without communicating to those closest to you can result in them seeing you as underhanded or otherwise untrustworthy. Their natural instinct may be opposition, once they find out what you’re up to.
Now this isn’t necessarily even in regards to your personal life but it could pertain your business life as well, especially if you’re in a leadership position. Given that we have two air cards, both which are associated with communication, the message I’m seeing from these cards is to keep the lines of communication open today. People are more likely to back you when they know what your intentions are.
So the message today for these three cards is:
Many problems in our life are due to a lack of communication. Keeping communication open between yourself and those closest to you can often avoid these misunderstandings.
So today’s advice card comes from The Symbolon Deck and the card drawn randomly from the deck was: Ice Queen
Interesting card in light of today’s draw. So the Ice Queen represents someone who may come across as distant, cold or even unfeeling. The figure is this card is all alone, with a single icy tear rolling down her cheek. This kind of makes me think of the Queen of Wands card that we saw at the beginning of our spread today. Accomplishment is a wonderful thing but it’s not so great when it’s at the expense of others or not communicated clearly to others. Secrecy can lead to pain.
The Ice Queen suggests that it may be time to get something off of your mind, something that my have been weighing you down or even causing you guilt or regret. Once we bring in others, the load immediately begins to lighten.
That’s your Daily Tarot Map for today. Brightest Blessings!
