This is Your Daily Tarot Map for Sunday January 17, 2016 – Using Tarot To Create the Life you want (transcript below).
Today, we begin working with a new deck for the coming week and that deck is the Japaridze Tarot by Nino Japaridze.
So the three cards drawn randomly from the Japaridze Tarot today were: Jester of Tides [ID], Ace of Fire, Jester of Fire
We have a heavy influence of fire today which is a great start to a week, although it’s not so great for our first card, the dreamy Jester of Tides, which is the equivalent of the Page or Princess of Cups. This is the card of the dreamer – a card of emotions and of the romantic. He or she is the daydreamer in the deck. But this card is ill-dignified by the Ace of Fire card next to it so we see instead a call to action. As much as we’d like to spend our Sunday curled up with a book or watching reruns of A Game of Thrones on TV, there are things to be done and plans to be made.
Remember that goal list you created at the beginning of the year? Today would be a good day to make some progress on it. In it’s ill-dignified state, the Page of Cups perhaps warns us of not taking a sufficient amount of action. All our grandiose plans will come to nothing if we don’t move on them. I also sometimes see this card as a warning against distractions. The Page of Cups is enamored by everything and everyone. He likes “shiny”. So this may be a recommendation to narrow down your focus a bit.
And that’s exactly the message of our second card, the Ace of Fire, the equivalent of the Ace of Wands or Staves. The Aces are all about potential. They are the seed that we have to plant. This Ace is that initial spark that can set you down an exciting path or adventure. Now the fire is damped a bit by the water card to it’s left but the fire card to it’s right helps to pump it up. This tells me that the will, the desire maybe even the passion is there but it’s going to take come focused effort on your part to get it off the ground. Now this could be in regards to getting up and running with a new business, a new creative venture such as a novel or art or even a new relationship, as the Fire suit is about passion…or even lust.
In our last card, the Jester of Fire, which is the equivalent of the Page or Princess of Wands. our figure holds the fire in his hand. This card is about the desire for change and that’s where any new endeavor begins: with desire. Our Jester advises us to take the spark we saw with the Ace of Fire and feed it so that it grows. Both the Ace and the Page are both cards signifying beginnings so many of you are at the beginning stages of project or creative venture. This last card suggests that you can make it happen and might urge you to take the risk and the initiative – and put your ideas into action. It’s about trying something new and might lead to some interesting growth.
This is a great group of cards to have for the beginning of your week and I see them as laying out a challenge before you. Are you ready to take up that challenge?
So the message today for these three cards is:
“Passion, energy and enthusiasm run hot today. Use that energy to brings your ideas, plans and goals into reality.”
So today’s advice card comes from Wisdom of the Hidden Realms deck by Collette Baron-Reid and the card drawn randomly from the deck was: The Cosmos
What a lovely card to have in support of today’s draw. The Cosmos card is about opening yourself up to creativity and possibility, exactly what we saw with the cards in today’s reading. The moon shining down the town can very well represent co-creation with the divine or with the universe. It’s been said that the universe often conspires in our favor and I see this idea represented strongly here.
As we take action on our goals, the potential realization of our projects grows more likely and more vast. This is a card of enormous possibility as long you’re willing to pick up the gauntlet, accept the challenge and charge forward.
That’s your Daily Tarot Map for today. Brightest Blessings!
