Weekly Tarot Story – Friday

Hello Today’s card could be a problem, we have the Eight of Swords. We could be dealing with fear, clarity or perspective issues. In general when it comes up we are feeling trapped and/or powerless to handle a situation. We could be dealing with fear, a lack of clarity or confusion because we don’t know what to do next, we can’t see a way out that we haven’t already tried.

I love the perspective MJ Cullinane chose for this card. When first looking at it you’re a little thrown off balance because we’re not quite sure what it is we’re looking at. Then we see the view is from the bottom of a deep hole and we are the person in the hole looking up and out for help!

Even after two days of cards suggesting we take a step back and get some perspective we seem to have missed something if this is where we are today. It’s OK everything is going to be alright. There is a way out, there is always a way out, we just have to find it.

We can do that by going over the last few days and getting some perspective, we can talk to someone we trust for guidance, and we can ask ourselves what happened or didn’t happen to get us to this point? What are we afraid of? What are we unsure about that maybe we should have questioned earlier? If we’re honest and willing to accept what might be a hard truth we’ll get clear of this and headed in the right direction again.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Friday

 Good morning, here we are at Friday January 14, 2022 and our card is the Five of Fire. For us the Five of Fire lets us know there may be conflict, confusion or lack of organization today. Chances are it will all center around a lack of communication. When everyone speaks at once, no one is heard or understood.

We have two options to take care of this. First we can sit everyone down, give them an opportunity to be heard, discuss the options then choose the best plan. Or, we can step back and let the scenario play itself out then step in and clean up the mess later.

Have a great day!
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

The Weekly Tarot Story

The Moon
Confusion, Hidden Things

Good morning everyone. It’s Sunday March 7, 2021 and it is so nice to hear birds singing in the morning again ❤ This weeks Tarot Story looks to be an intense journey for us as all but one of our cards is from the Major Arcana. The Major Arcana brings us big life lessons so brace yourselves; this could be a very interesting week.

Our card for today is The Moon and it is a card of confusion and hidden things. It tells us we may be heading into our week a little confused. Perhaps we don’t fully understand where we’re going or what we should be doing. Maybe we haven’t given ourselves time to make goals for the week, and there is also the possibility we have a plan but not all the information we need. Listening to our intuition will be important today and as we move through our week. Our intuition acts like an internal guidance system. Paying attention can help us see the signs and discover what we may have missed to find our way through the bedlam.

Have a wonderful day! Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

Today’s Daily Draw

We have a pair of Threes today. The Three of Cups and our bottom card the Three of Swords Reversed. The Three of Cups tells us the day could be a wonderful one, full of joy and celebration. How is that for synchronicity? Here is the Unites States its the 4th of July, and we will be enjoying the day with family and friends.

The reversed Three of Swords holds a slight warning for us. This card tells us there could be some confusion, maybe a conflict or a clash of personalities. This shouldn’t be too bad though if we understand that this kind of thing happens now and then when family gathers. Relax, let it roll and enjoy the day.

Today’s Universal Number

We have a Six Day today. This energy is about relationships, responsibility, and service. It’s about creating balance and harmony. This is just what we could use if an emotional wrench is thrown into our day.

Today’s Crystals

I chose Citrine and Rose Quartz to accompany today’s cards. Both are members of the Quartz family and work to clear and balance our Chakras. Citrine is has a great uplifting energy, it’s creative and joyful and helps draw abundance to us. Rose Quartz will help keep the love and forgiveness flowing for us.

Today’s Daily Draw

The Eight of Swords is here and may surround us with confusing thoughts today. The result of this is we may find ourselves way too up in our heads imagining every negative possibility out there. A self-imposed prison of confusion and fear. There is good news though, our bottom card is bringing us the confidence to ground ourselves and overcome the mass of mental turmoil we have created. With our feet back on the ground and renewed belief in ourselves we can see alternate perspectives and take action on what will work best to resolve what ever we are dealing with today. Focus on the goal and don’t let fear get in the way.

Today’s Universal Number

The universal energy today is 44/8 and this is an excellent energy. The four is an ordered, stable and dependable energy focused on building a solid foundation.

Today’s Crystals

I chose two crystals. Prehnite and Jade. Prehnite is a crystal that assists with problem solving. This piece has tourmaline in it which helps ground our energy to think straight. Jade is a beautiful crystal that helps us manifest our dreams and attract opportunity.

 

Sometimes We Wait

Technology is a good thing; in many ways it’s helpful. Having electricity, heat when its cold and air conditioning when its blistering hot is wonderful and let’s not forget indoor plumbing! That was an awesome upgrade. Technology gives us access to information we might not otherwise find easily. It keeps us instantly connected to people we care about and the medical industry is always coming out with new and interesting ways to “Help” us.

There is a very real downside to technology as well. It’s very intrusive. Every aspect of our lives has some sort of technology grasping at it. We can’t go shopping or anywhere without being captured on surveillance cameras. Many people have tv’s or computers in several rooms of their homes. Some people don’t know what it’s like to not have a radio or tv playing, even if they aren’t paying attention to it. Television, movies and magazines constantly feed us thoughts of comparison and conformity. We need to look, act and live like everyone else. We need the big houses and fancy cars. Computers speed up the rate at which we live. We have become an instantaneous world and we are forced to live our lives faster than ever.

How many of us feel lost or “naked”without our cell phones? Even with these super handy tools, how often do we actually call or text people? How often do you have a conversation with someone while paying more attention to the phone than the person next to you? How often do people take the time to cook, not microwave, a meal then sit at a table and share it with friends or family? Life is so busy that it is easier to stop and grab something on the way.

Life isn’t meant to be lived at a breakneck speed; it’s meant to be experienced and enjoyed one day, one hour, one moment at a time. Everything of value takes time. Growth takes time. Learning life’s lessons takes time. Forging friendships take time and Love certainly takes time. When we live in overdrive we forget that life sometimes bring us to a stop and asks us wait. This causes a lot of pain and confusion because we’ve been programmed to think we need to be doing something. We think there is something wrong with us or with life. We question whether we are on the right path. This emotional state can send us spiraling into a dark place of anger, depression and misery.

Waiting periods are critical for our growth and serve a couple of purposes. Sometimes we need a pause after a difficult time in our lives to heal and find our balance again. A waiting period for us might be a time of learning for someone else and we are a part of their lesson, and they are perfect times to reconnect with our guides and prepare for the next chapter of our journey.

We are never on a wrong road and we will always end up at our destination as long as we are working on becoming who we came here to be and doing what we came to do. Life will always take us to the place we most need to be for as long as we need to be there. Sometimes that place is the thick of the action and others is sitting and waiting and that’s alright too because patience is one of the lessons we need to learn.

Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

 

Today’s Daily Draw

The Daughter of Air is here with energy, passion, enthusiasm as well as confusion and nervous energy. We see the maiden in the image seeking guidance. A beautiful eagle is coming with a message because she is struggling to make sense of her thoughts and feelings. Our maidens hair is flowing, hinting that she is ready to get moving. Notice the area around her is grey with no plant life. This talks  about our level of confusion. We might not be sure which way to go or what to do but in the distance we see greens, blues and oranges telling us this is a temporary state. We just need to get some clarity, make a plan, pick a direction and get going.

Our bottom card is theTwo of Earth and it is here to help us find some balance. This card is about change, growth and transformation. It tells us that we need to think carefully and make a plan before we make a move today. Listen to our intuition and trust the flow. We need to be willing to step outside our comfort zone to reach our goal. We just need to stick to the plan and embrace the change that is coming soon.

Today’s Universal Number

Today is a Seven Day and this is good for us. The seven energy looks for knowledge, insight and wisdom. It will go a long way to help us find the information we will need today.

Today’s Crystals

For balance and finding our way I chose Labradorite and Zebra Jasper. Labradorite is about transformation and opens our intuition. Zebra Jasper helps us find our balance and gives us optimism.

 

Today’s Daily Draw

Everyone has days that are confusing or so emotional we have trouble putting our thoughts together. Forget trying to find a solution when nothing clear or making sense. After yesterdays high we might need to step back and take a break so that we can gain some perspective and figure out what is going on. The Shaman tells us rushing in and trying to push our agenda or hammer a solution into the mix could just make things worse. So don’t do that. Our bottom card, the King of Wands has a better idea. His suggestion is to take the lead and gather everyone involved together; give each person uninterrupted time to present their ideas or explanations about whatever our issue is. Once that is done some open and unbiased communication should allow for a compromise and a plan of action can be made to solve our problem.

Today’s Universal Number

We have a Nine Day and this is perfect for us. The energy of the nine is about transitions and changes. Both our universal day and our card for today is a nine. So lets put an ending on it, clear up the work that needs to be done and get ready for the new energy!

Today’s Crystals

The two crystals chosen for today are Goldstone and Labradorite. Labradorite is a gorgeous and very useful crystal. Its energy is about transformation and will help us connect to our inner guidance and strength in order to make any changes that are necessary. Goldstone is a crystal that encourages our ambition to achieve our goals, one we know what we want and have a plan.

Today’s Daily Draw

Today could be an emotional one for us. The Eight of Swords is here to tell us we might have questions racing through our minds, overpowering our ability to think clearly, making us feel helpless, confused and unable to find a solution to whatever problem we are having. Because the issue is an emotional one we may not see the options we have. Getting out of our head can help. Our bottom card, Judgement, is a card of liberation. We need to be honest with ourselves and anyone else involved. When we do that we will open ourselves to new perspectives about our lives and our situation. The new perspective can help us take back our power and find a place of balance and harmony again. With balance we will see our solution and can move ahead.

Today’s Universal Number

Today is a Seven Day and the energy is what we need to help us find the insight to our issue. Seven is a seeker, it always wants things to make sense and takes nothing for granted. Ask the questions you need to understand and find the wisdom of the situation.

Today’s Crystals

Three crystals were chosen today. They are Howlite which will help us work through the emotion of the day. Rutilated Quartz to help us access our intuition to find the cause and the solution, and Zebra Jasper to clam us and help us find the balance we need.

Thank you BJ for today’s guest reading!

 

Today’s Daily Draw

We had a pair of fives yesterday and another came up today. This tells us we have a good deal of change coming. Our card is the Five of Air and the bottom is the Five of Earth. On the surface our cards are hinting we might get caught up in a loop of negativity today. Maybe we are worried that a project we worked on is going to fall apart, we could be doubting our ability to do something we want to do, or we could be concerned about our finances. The thing is our fears are based in our imagination and we are feeding our worries for nothing. Both our cards have crows in them. The crow is a messenger and they are bringing us some good news. Our bottom card is an earth element and with the earth there is always some amount of waiting involved. It would be a good idea to hang back and avoid making important decisions today because we need to give ourselves some time to gain some clarity and deal with what ever is causing us to doubt ourselves. Be strong, reach deep and hang onto your faith. Things aren’t as bad as they seem and everything is going to be ok.

Today’s Universal Number

We have an awesome universal number today, it is 44/8. Forty Four has an incredible foundation energy and is a validation number. We have everything we need and can accomplish anything if we are organized and have a good plan and give it time.

Today’s Crystals

I chose three crystals for today. Flourite to help us find the clarity we need. Carnelian for a boost to our confidence and our courage and Amethyst to calm us down, help us get rid of any negativity and open our intuition.
