This is Your Daily Tarot Map for Friday January 15, 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: King of Wands, 9 of Pentacles, High Priestess
Yesterday, we saw a female lion with the Queen of Wands and today, we see a large male lion with the King of Wands, the first card in our draw today. He’s about inspiration and your ability to think big. Given that he’s a king, he’s associated with power but with the kind of power that comes from being daring, creative, energetic and a visionary. So what I’m seeing here is a need to expand your goals. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and to venture into something different for you – something perhaps that you normally wouldn’t try.
So our next card, the 9 of Pentacles suggests that you are making progress on your goals but there’s still more to do, perhaps that which we mentioned with our last card. We see yet another cat in this card, this time a beautiful tiger, another animal of power. She appears to be petting the animal, perhaps advising us to find and use our own personal power.
The 9 of Pentacles lets us know that success is attainable, that you can bring more abundance into your life but it will entail a sacrifice on your part, an idea we often see with this card. Nothing comes without effort so in this way, this card recommends self-discipline and self-control if you’re to reach your goals. But you also need to celebrate the fact that you’ve already come a long way. We sometimes forget all that we’ve accomplished and done so be careful not to retreat now, especially from those new ideas or new inklings that may have popped up, as we mentioned with the King of Wands.
If you’re feeling at all hesitant, listen to what your intuition is telling you, as suggested by the last card, The High Priestess, a card of reflection and listening to what your gut or your unconscious is telling you. Pay extra attention to your dreams or to any hunches or flashes of insight that may occur to you during the day. These often provide clues on which way to proceed and if they support those ideas or goals we mentioned earlier, then they may be worth of serious consideration.
So the message today for these three cards is:
Trust your hunches as our instincts often outsmart our brain. The most life-changing and decisive actions in our life are often unconsidered actions.
So today’s advice card comes from The Symbolon Deck and the card drawn randomly from the deck was: The Garden of Spirits
I think this card supports nicely the idea of our intuition and unconscious mind working behind the scenes to bring us information. This could be us tapping into the collective unconscious as discussed by Carl G Jung or something else entirely. But wherever it stems from, those nudges, flashes and dreams might point the way to a new path for us, maybe even leading to something really big.
Like the woman in the image, today might be the day to plant the tiny tree that will grow into a forest later on.
That’s your Daily Tarot Map for today. Brightest Blessings!
