This is Your Daily Tarot Map for Thursday, October 22, 2015 – Using Tarot to create the life you want (transcript below).
Thank you for joining me!
This week, we are working with Ghost Tarot, created by Davide Corsi.
So the three cards drawn randomly from the Ghost Tarot today were: The Stars, 5 of Cups, King of Wands
In this deck, Trump 17 has been renamed The Stars and signifies looking to the heavens for the answer to what may be troubling us. It’s no mistake that the Star card follows the Tower as it suggests picking up the pieces and putting ourself back together after going through a really tough time.
The meaning of hope is typically assigned to this card but this is hope following healing, and that’s what may be needed for some of you: taking the time to heal our bodies and/or our spirits.
Many of us go through a tough time but continue to forge on without taking the proper time to heal, leaving pieces of us behind as we do so. This might be a call to take some alone time, see a physican or therapist as the situation prescribes or simply acknowledge the part of you that needs healing.
Now our second card, the 5 of Cups, may point the reason we need to heal: Loss. This is a heart-wrenching image as a man watches his loved one sail away and into the light, leaving the earthly plane behind. But notice that he is waving. He’s not screaming, crying or pleading for his loved one to stay. There comes a time when we have to realize that something has ended and that hanging on only keeps us stuck in an unhealthy emotional situation.
Yes, I know. This is a lot easier said than done. It’s never easy to let go of something or someone that was once important to us. But eventually, let go we must. This might be a relationship that has run its course, a friendship where you both have drifted apart, or a job or career that no longer fulfills you.
Yes, we’re bound to feel disappointment but refusing to let go prevents us from healing and moving on. It might be time to let go of the ex and instead, begin searching for someone with whom you can build a real future. It might be time to set yourself free.
The first step in this may be in determining what we want out of our life and being adamant in achieving it, as suggested by our last card, the King of Wands. This is a card of fiery personal power, power that some of us might have to unearth if we’re to move to that place of healing we mentioned in the past two cards.
But by taking authority and having an actual plan for our future, we can move past that “stuck” stage and get back into our life. This might be a decision such as: “I will find a healthy, fulfilling relationship with a loving person” or “I will be a successful and thriving entrepreneur”.
Having a direction is one of the most important aspects of healing because without it, we only continue to flail around aimlessly, not quite sure what to do with our life. So today would be a great day to take a pen and paper, and plot out your direction. For some of you, it may be time to reinvent yourself.
So the message today for these three cards is:
We can either to react to our past with resentfulness and bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. By finding our power, we overcome the dark and press on to brighter world.
So today’s advice card comes from The Symbolon Deck and the card drawn randomly from the deck was: Phoenix.
Well, we couldn’t have asked for a better card for our advice card. The Phoenix is a card of transformation, of renewal and of liberation. It often asks us to realize that a phase of our life is over and that it’s time to rise from the ashes and reinvent ourself. This is the ultimate card of letting go. It’s about letting old situations and emotions die and moving past. It doesn’t mean we forget the past. It only means that we no longer allow it to define us.
That’s your Daily Tarot Map for today. Brightest Blessings!
