Holy shit these cards!
Card 1, within: VII The Chariot
Introduction: The Chariot indicates a lot of energy but not free-for-all energy. It’s directed, controlled, and has a goal in mind. When this card appears you are likely to be fairly clear on what your hopes and dreams involve and what you are willing to do to get there.
General: In general this card points to determination and ambition, getting things done, and testing and proving what you’ve got. This is a sign that you should move forward with whatever you have in mind (and in your heart) and give it your best shot. Remember, though, that you’ll need to use both your intellect and your heart, in order to be truly successful.
Keep an open heart & know that you are in control of your own journey. Magnum Opus. (a large and important work of art, music, or literature, especially one regarded as the most important work of an artist or writer.) Apply knowledge. Control over your own life. Free will. Conscious intent. Action, travel, movement.
Card 2, without: XIII Death
Introduction: Death does not necessarily, or even usually, indicate physical death. In fact, in general, it is considered irresponsible for readers to predict physical death, as we are creatures with free will, and such things are not written in stone. This card simply indicates transformation and change. This is definitely a time of deep transformation, likely to be both inner and outwardly in your life. Situations, things, and people that you have counted on or gotten used to may no longer be available to you in quite the same way as they once were, and this transition can be difficult for some people.
General: The more accepting you can be of change of all sorts during this time, and the less you try to “control” the better and the more comfortable this time will be for you. Often what you need to “let go of” is some sort of self-limiting belief or attitude. Sometimes we just can’t see how our attitudes are hurting us, and when that is true, this time period can be a wake-up call. The energy of this time is not just change or destruction; it is change or destruction followed by renewal. Even though one door may have closed, another is opening. Will you have the courage to step through?
Work: If you hate your job, or are “underemployed,” but you’ve not wanted to leave because of the steady income, you could end up being forced out. Ultimately, this would lead to your “greater good,” but wouldn’t you rather leave on your own volition? You may benefit most from a complete change of field. Make the leap. You can do it. Ha! Now this is funny. Can I really do it? I made the leap at the beginning of 2015, after all, and I’ve been hustling ever since.
Card 3, advice: VI Lovers
Introduction: The Lovers is associated with the astrological sign of Gemini, “The Twins.” It almost always points to partnerships with just one other person; generally, and not surprisingly, this indicates a romantic partnership, but of course this is not always the case. Less frequently, it points to the duality that all of us have inwardly – between male/female, yin/yang, approach/avoidance, and the like.
General: It’s possible when this card appears that you are feeling ambivalent about a relationship or situation in your life. It could be that your heart is telling you one thing, and your head, another. In general, the thing to do is (within the bounds of your morality) to follow your heart. Some people say there are only two modes that any of us are operating under at any time; and that’s “fear” or “love.” When you can: choose love.
The lovers card is about wedding opposites. Men and women, energies, ideas, parts of the self.
Keywords: Marriage, joining, union. Love, attraction, acceptance, non judgment, inclusion. Beauty, perfection, peace.
Right! Time to get ready for a sit. I didn’t get to it yesterday.
