The Daily Tarot Story

Two of Cups
Partnerships, Collaboration, Choices

Good morning. Welcome to Wednesday January 27, 2021. The card for today is another two, this one the Two of Cups. Cups are about emotion and being a two, we have more choices to make. Chances are these choices might relate to yesterday and the Two of Wands. It could be we made our plans but have come to the realization it isn’t a job we can do on our own so we need to find someone to partner with us.

It may also be that we will be working with another person or team of people and we have to come to a compromise that works to everyone’s benefit.

Have a good day, BJ

The Daily Tarot Story

One of life’s certainties, beyond death and taxes, is that life is overflowing with choices. From the moment we wake up until we go to bed we are faced with numerous choices, some big with long term effects and others more immediate like do we order out or make something ourselves? Having the freedom and the ability to make a choice about our lives is really quite a blessing. Not everyone has that freedom.

The guidance this card has for us today is to think more long term in regard to both business and personal issues and make our choices accordingly. Remember the easy path isn’t always the best.

Have a great day!

The Weekend Ahead

I decided to use an oracle deck for our weekend draw. This spread simply answers the question, what do we need to know for the weekend? Our cards are telling us we have a decision to make. The first card that came up for us in this Tarot Story is Empowerment. This card is telling us to be open and alert for signs of guidance that could come from anywhere. Our second card is Fresh Approach, and tells us as we are working on the solution to whatever we are dealing with, we shouldn’t be afraid to think outside the box. Look at things with a fresh set of eyes, and explore all available options. The final card that came up is Be True to Your Heart. When it comes up in a reading it tells us to listen to our intuition, and trust we will make the right choice for us. Once we understand what it is that needs to be done, take action, be determined and it will pay off.

The weekend numerology supports our effort to make a choice and get moving. Friday is a One Day. Saturday is a master number day, 11/2, and Sunday is a Three Day. The universal energy of these days will help us be strong, rise, and find a creative, joyful way to move ahead.

Have a wonderful weekend! Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

 

Today’s Daily Draw

The reverse cards appear to be following us into our new week. The bottom card today is The Lovers reversed. In this position we might be feeling a little out of balance today. With feeling like something might be wrong there is also a good chance our communication efforts will be a bit off too. If we’re not careful this energy could spill into our day and mess with what we are trying to accomplish. Our main card is the Ten of Pentacles and this card is about working hard to build a life full of happiness and abundance. The underlying energy of our day may be an issue, but keep in mind, relationships are a combination of many things. What becomes of them is dependent on the work we put in. This includes the choices we make about how we react to stressful situations.

Today’s Universal Number

We have a One Day ahead of us and this could be an amazing thing or a real problem. The energy of the one is ready to go out and conquer the world. This will be a great thing if everyone is on the same page. For this to work we are going to have to take the time to make sure all communications are clear.

Today’s Crystal

The crystal choice for today is Zebra Jasper and it is a perfect pick. The energy of this stone is calming, bring balance and is grounding. It is also full of optimism and joy. Just what we need!

Thank you, BJ, for today’s guest reading!

Today’s Daily Draw

There is potential for the day but we might be feeling like we aren’t quite ready for it, and chances are we’re not. This potential comes from the Two of Wands. It tells us we have an idea and have done some research and preparation but we’re not ready to move full on with our plans.
This energy is coming from our bottom card the Five of Pentacles. The message it has it that we might be dealing with some insecurities. Maybe we’re not feeling prepared, or we up against some unexpected roadblocks.
The best thing we can do today is, our best to work through the issues. Explore all our options, consider the long term goals. Make our decisions, check to make sure we haven’t missed anything important, and finalize our plans. The number five is about movement, so keep going. Stay committed!

Today’s Universal Number

We have a Two Day ahead of us. The energy of the two is about compromise and finding harmony. We will have decosopns to make today. We should do our best to make choices that give us peace and confidence that we are doing the right thing for us.

Today’s Crystal

Todays choice was a toss up but I chose Dragons Blood Jasper to accompany our cards. The energy of this crystal gives us courage to stand in our personal power. It helps us find creative solutions and keeps us determined to achieve our goals. It acts like a shield against negative peopleand give us confidence. All things that will be a help to us today.

Today’s Daily Draw

Our Monday is starting off with a light, positive mood. Our main card the Eight of Wands tells us it’s time to get moving on something. This is a card of movement, fast progress and making decisions. It is time to get going with an idea, a project, or maybe something that has been delayed for some reason. The Eight of Wands also holds the potential for travel. Maybe a business trip. A letter or phone call could bring some news.

Things may be opening up for us but this doesn’t mean we can act foolishly. Of course, we want to get moving as quickly as possible. Getting a good start is desirable, we also need to keep the message of our bottom card, The Web, in mind. It is here to remind us our actions have consequences. Any decisions we make about moving forward should be done with our long term goals in mind. Short term successes are great, but we are in the race to reach the end; not necessarily get there the fastest. Our choices must be made based on what we feel is right and in line with our plans and goals. If we make sure our plan is solid and keep our goals in mind, it will be clear sailing today!

Have a fabulous day. Blessed Be ❤ Shay

Thank you, BJ, for today’s Guest Reading! Decisions, choices,

Today’s Daily Draw

Today’s draw gave us two stage cards. The Two of Pentacles as our main card and the Four of Wands as the underlying energy driving our day. Having two stage cards tells us something might be going on behind the scenes we aren’t aware of, or perhaps we are fooling ourselves in some respect about what is going on. Whether or not this is true for each of us is for us to figure out.

The Four in numerology is a number of stability, order, discipline and building a solid foundation. Wands are fire energy, creativity and growth. With all four wands firmly planted in the ground, we get the feeling of celebration from this card. In the background there are two people welcoming us with bouquets in the air. When this card comes up, we have a reason to celebrate. The canopy of flowers and fruit tell us we are protected and this is a time of peace and harmony.

To get to this harmonious place we need to deal with our main card, the Two of Pentacles. Two in numerology is a card of balance, harmony and communication. In the Tarot, it is about making choices, adapting and defining our priorities. The man in the image is walking away from some heavy waves behind him, while at the same time juggling two pentacles. Chances are there is an important decision to be made that will affect our home, family health or finances. Perhaps we’re feeling like it is more than we can handle right now. Remember, this too, is a stage card and our hero is walking on a grey surface. He may think he is ready to make a choice, but It’s likely he, as well as us, do not have all the information we need. Naturally we want to make the best decision possible, so take the time to find all the answers and information we need. It might look like a good deal, but looks can be deceiving. We need to know what our long term priorities are. What are our goals? Is this idea or opportunity as solid as seems? Check the plans, review the facts. Talk to a trusted friend or anyone else who may be affected by our decision and see what they think. Once we’re confident that we have everything we need, go ahead and make the decision.

Today’s Universal Number

How appropriate that today’s energy is the Seven? This number holds the desire for knowledge and truth. Seven won’t take anything at face value, it’s going to check for itself!

Today’s Crystal

I chose Amazonite today. The peaceful energy will keep negativity away and will help us find the truth we are seeking.

Balance, Have a wonderful day. Blessed Be ❤ Shay

 

The Weekend Ahead

We have a change in the air for us this weekend. Whether or not this change is a good or bad thing depends on how our bottom card, the Nine of Swords Reversed, will affect us. Let’s take a look at the cards that came up for us and see what could be in store for us.

I think it is important to begin with our Bottom card today because in its reverse position, the Nine of Swords can present two very different meanings across our weekend. In the upright position this card tells us we are struggling with concerns and worries. Reversed, our card can mean we are coming out the other side and learning to let go and see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Allowing us to see clearly and look forward to the future. The extreme of this can also be the case. Some might have taken those worries and ran with them. We could be lost in regret, shame, blame or be in a deep depression. The Nine of swords can even mean some kind of scandal has taken place. Looking toward the weekend, it will be important to let go of things we have no control over, the things that no longer serve our highest good, and forgive. Remember this is the suit of swords, so get the facts of a situation, don’t let worry about what might be cloud us.

Friday begins the weekend with a bang and the Death card. This, of course, rarely means an actual death. Rather it means there is a huge change coming. Because it is the Death card, something is coming to an end. A relationship, an old belief system, a project we have been working on. When this card comes up it generally points to a profound change. Knowing what our bottom card is telling us, I hope this is a good change. One that will open opportunities for very positive things. Remember that thought creates reality, and where there is an ending, there is also a beginning. Many times, our attitude toward a situation makes a huge difference.

Saturday gives us the Seven of Cups and we need to make a decision. This card asks us, what if? It is a card of choices, fantasy, options and paying attention. Keeping in mind what yesterday brought forward we have to decide what to do now. The question to be asked is what do we want? We might not know right now, so don’t think a choice has to be made today. Think about it. Explore all potential options and pay attention to what our gut is telling us.

Sunday rounds out our potentially life changing weekend with the Four of Pentacles. This tells us to be careful with what we have. Don’t spend money on anything that is not really necessary, don’t lend money right now, get things organized, and make plans. This is a time for practicality. Think carefully, consider all the options and what they might involve before making a decision that can effect the future.

Have a wonderful weekend ❤ Shay

 

 

 

Today’s Daily Draw

The Emperor is our underlying energy today. He is a man very much in control. The Emperor offers us stability, order, power and security. His message is, we are in control of what happens in our life. This will be important today because the Four of Cups came up as our main card. We could be faced with a difficult decision. Several opportunities may be presented and we must decide which is best. With Jupiter in retrograde until August, we are in a time of expansion and should make the best use of its favorable energy. A decision for moving forward must be made but, take the time to know what is the most important to us right now and going forward. Once the decision is made, we have everything needed to be successful. Just be committed.

Today’s Universal Number

This is a Seven Day, and an excellent energy for us. It will help us sift through the questions and facts to make the best choice we can.

Today’s Crystal

I chose Sunstone to accompany our cards because it clears negativity and increases personal power, gives us strength.

Have a wonderful day ❤ Shay

Today’s Daily Draw

Our cards, The Lovers and the Five of Pentacles tell us we may have a lot on our minds concerning a relationship today. Our concern could be personal or professional and comes from our bottom card, the Five of Pentacles. When this card comes up in a reading there could be problems we didn’t anticipate, a feeling of loss, we could be feeling like we don’t have enough of some kind of resource or we could be feeling left out.

How this plays out for each of us will depend on the relationship that our main card, The Lovers has for us. In a reading this card means there is a decision to be made within a relationship. As stated before, the relationship could be professional or personal. The energy of this card is a harmonious one, but doesn’t always mean a meating of the minds. It can sometimes mean a amicable sepataion. Open and honest communication will be necessary if the partnership, whatever that means for each of us, is going to continue.

Today’s Universal Number

Today’s energy is absolutely perfect for us. it is a Five Day, and although they can be a rollercoaster ride, being open and flexible in our thinking will help. Everyone will need an open mind and heart if any issues are going to be worked out to everyones highest good.

Today’s Crystal

Rose Quartz seemed the best choice for the day today. It gives us all the benifits of the Quartz family and it helps us forgive and accept love.

Have a wonderful day ❤ Shay
