This is Your Daily Tarot Map for Thursday, July 2, 2015 – Using Tarot to create the life you want.
This week, we continue working with The Robin Wood Tarot, created and illustrated by Robin Wood.
The three cards drawn today randomly from the deck were: The Emperor, 9 of Wands, 7 of Cups
So the Emperor rules the first position of our spread today. The Emperor is the card of the leader, of taking initiative action or at the very least, establishing a plan of action. Notice the word “action” here? That’s what this dude is all about. He takes charge, gives orders and creates structure. When he graces us with his regal presence, it’s to remind us of the need of taking charge of a situation, perhaps even the need to assert your authority. You may find yourself smack in the middle of such a situation today so here’s the chance for you to shine. I see the Emperor here as telling you that you’ll be able to plow through whatever obstacles you’re currently facing and will manage complete your projects or complete your goals.
Although you may need to get over one tiny hurdle first, which is hinted at by our next card, the 9 of Wands. Here we see a fellow with a bandaged head who is one the defensive. Having recently gone through challenging times, he’s expecting the worst, perhaps waiting for the other shoe to fall. So in order to assert that authority we mentioned with the Emperor, you might have to find that little extra burst of energy to pull you through, no matter how exhausted you might be.
The 9 of Wands could represent a rough project that’s had you burning the candle at both ends. Or maybe you’re taking night classes and working full time during the day. But now is not the time to give up. The 9 of Wands is about having the energy, drive and will to succeed. So take any opportunity to rest and gather up your energy and then it’s back to your post.
Given that his card is numbered 9 lets us know that you’re nearing the finish line – but this is the also the point where you’ll want to put in as much effort as you can. This is a card of strength and perseverance so though you may feel you’re at wits end, you’ll need to push past the obstacles, past the pain to do what needs to be done.
It bears mentioning that both The Emperor and the 9 of Wands can be associated with defense, about being on the defensive so you may find yourself in exactly such a position today. The best stategy for this is to be extra prepared should this situation arise.
Our last card, the 7 of Cups, signifies moving from that hoping and wishing stage typically represted by this card into the manifestation stage. Given that this watery card is ill-dignified by the fire card next to it, things may become clearer than they have been as they move from the conceptual into the material. You might even be able to see an end to all the madness you’ve been recently going through.
Whatever it is that’s been taking up all of your energy is coming to fruition, allowing you to breathe a little easier. But in order to truly succeed here, you’ll want to ensure that you stick with it to the end and don’t lose your focus. Not when you’re this close. Use the willful energy of the Emperor to see this through to the end and then allow yourself to bask in your success.
So the message for these three cards is:
“Our dreams doesn’t become manifest through magic. It takes guts, dedication, willpower, determination and a lot of hard work.”
Today’s advice comes from the Chronicles of Destiny Fortune Cards and the card drawn randomly from the deck is number 33: The Fellowship
Remember those challenges that we talked about earlier? Well the good news, is that you don’t have to go it alone. You have others that you can rely on, that may be able to help ease the burden somewhat. So don’t be afraid to rely on your team – your allies – to help you accomplish your goals. Things often go a hell of a lot smoother when you work together.
