This is Your Daily Tarot Map for Wednesday January 13, 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: 6 of Cups, 6 of Swords, Ace of Pentacles
The first card is the 6 of Cups, in which we see a woman reaching back to the child standing behind her in the water. This card is about nostalgia and happy memories. It often appears in a reading when there is a heavy focus on the past or the past is having a heavy influence on the present. With the two 6’s in the spread, I’m seeing a journey from challenging times to more harmonious times but it’s not an easy one. Sometimes being stuck in the past prevents us from living truly in the present.
I know many of us have that one person in the past that we loved with all our heart; that person we considered a soul-mate and for whatever reason, the relationship didn’t work out. I realize that we never forget our first love and that he or she will always have a special place in our life.
But there does come a point where we need to let go, especially if it’s preventing us from creating a future with someone new. We may have to move past that mentality of wondering & hoping when the person will come back.
This idea is symbolized nicely by our second card, the 6 of Swords, who has already graced our reading once this week. If you recall, this is about walking way and letting go of the past, especially if it’s regarding an event that’s sad or painful. Notice the light ahead of the woman on the card. This symbolizes that the future can be a positive place with new possibilities – happy possibilities – once we’re ready to embrace it.
The last card of our draw is the Ace of Pentacles, a card typically associated with growth and opportunity. However, this earthy card is ill-dignified by the airy card next to it, suggesting that there is a blockage here preventing you from experiencing the bounty that this card suggests.
Whether this be in regards to a romantic relationship or some other major event in your life, it does appear that this is keeping some of you stuck at the moment, perhaps feeling insecure. You may be so focused on holding on to the past that this may be causing opportunities to slip through your fingers.
So today might be a good day to take a good, hard look at your life and see if there is anything that is interfering with your present or your ability to move forward. Once we recognize these obstacles, we can then begin work on removing them.
So the message today for these three cards is:
Letting go is the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not necessarily a part of your future. It isn’t holding on that makes us strong, but rather it is in letting go.
So today’s advice card comes from The Symbolon Deck and the card drawn randomly from the deck was: Captivity
Okay, so it looks like we’re getting beat over the head with this message today so it may be something that some of you will want to especially pay attention to. Here we see a figure in a room with bars on the widow, representing loss of freedom and loss of movement, of being trapped and imprisoned.
That issue which we discussed with today’s cards may be keeping you stuck and locked up in the past. So it might be time to bribe the guard and make your escape.
That’s your Daily Tarot Map for today. Brightest Blessings!
