8 Questions to Ask When You Pull the 5 of Wands

Today on Magick with Melissa (CLICK HERE to see the 1/11/2020 episode) I talked about how to be kind ALWAYS. It’s a neat trick, but very effective.

AND I pulled our weekly Tarot card for guidance and healing. This week I asked, “How can we practice being kind to ourselves?”

FiveofWands

5 of Wands

The 5 of Wands speaks to competition, conflict, AND collaboration. Depending on how you look at it, any situation can take on the feel of conflict or of collaboration. It can also embody both energies, which is where competition comes in.

We tend to see competition as us and against them, but in reality, it’s an opportunity to use each other’s strengths and weaknesses to challenge ourselves to do better. We tend to push ourselves harder when we are competing. Why?

The simple answer is we want to win. But the more nuanced explanation is other’s provide us the catalyst to dig deeper than we thought we were capable of.

So how does this apply to practicing kindness? Well, think of it this way: when we find ourselves in conflict with someone else, we are being presented with the challenge to dig deeper to find a way to connect vs. compete. When our egos are screaming to be validated, it’s challenging to be kind. Get it?

If we can find a way to be kind in the midst of conflict, we are improving and excelling. In essence, we are winning.

Here are 8 questions you can ask to deep dive into the 5 of Wands:

1. Where is there conflict in your life right now?
2. What can you learn from this conflict?
3. Is there a way to turn conflict into collaboration?
4. Who are you in competition with?
5. What can you learn from other’s success?
6. How can you support yourself and others during current challenges?
7. What are you learning about working with others right now?
8. What challenges are preventing your from moving forward right now?

These questions are inspired by my own musings, as well as The Field Notes by Chris-Anne, creator of the Light Seer’s Tarot.

Use these questions to process how you can be kinder to yourself and others during challenging times.

8 Questions to Ask When You Pull the 9 of Pentacles

Yesterday on 2021 Premier of Magick with Melissa (CLICK HERE to see the 1/04/2020 episode) I talked about what to do BEFORE you make those New Year resolutions. Check out the video to see what it is.

AND I pulled our weekly Tarot card for guidance and healing. This week I asked, “What can we do to help ourselves became more comfortable with who we are?” And the 9 of Pentacles was our answer!

NineofPentacles

9 of Pentacles

We’ve had our eye steadfastly focused on the future–what we want, where we’re going, what it’s going to be like when we get there–and we’re so close. But guess what? There’s a whole lot of abundance to celebrate RIGHT NOW.

It’s so easy to be focused on our goals to be richer, smarter, thinner, sexier, or more successful. It’s harder to stop and just be in the moment, appreciate how wonderful our lives our now.

So stop, look around, take in the life you’re building. It’s AH-mazing! YOU are amazing, just the way you are. If you need proof, start a “happy journal”. Write down three things every day that you love about your life and yourself. Include the little joys of your day and the things that surprise you.

Here are 8 questions you can ask to deep dive into the 9 of Pentacles

1. What is most important to you?
2. Do you believe you are worthy of your dreams?
3. When are the most happy?
4. What was the last achievement you took the time to celebrate?
5. How are have you come?
6. Are you working too hard?
7. How can you make time to appreciate the life you are building?
8. Despite all you have, do you feel like something is missing? What is it?

These questions are inspired by my own musings, as well as The Field Notes by Chris-Anne, creator of the Light Seer’s Tarot.

Use these questions to process how you can appreciate yourself and your life more.

8 Question to Ask When you Pull The Hierophant

Today on Magick with Melissa (CLICK HERE to see the 12/28/2020 episode) I talked about the Full Moon and illuminating our self-limiting beliefs.

I also pulled our weekly Tarot card for guidance and healing. This week I asked, “How can we gain clarity around what we want to do as opposed to how others want us to act?” I pulled The Hierophant.

5. The Hierophant

The Hierophant’s message is to seek out a guiding authority to teach you what you need to learn. However, there are two schools of thought about who that “guiding authority” is.

First, there’s the traditional authorities: spiritual leaders and guides, teachers, government, and socially accepted structures. A simple message could be to “seek out an authority to learn from.” If you asked about a relationship, it might be time to make a formal commitment, like getting married.

The second, newer, school of thought is to become your own guiding authority. Break the rules, make your own, and get out from under the thumb of the establishment.

I think these two ideas can and should co-exist. There’s value in tradition and history. No need to throw out the baby with the bathwater. But it is also our responsibility to always be questioning authority. Our leaders shouldn’t get to maintain the status quo just because it’s “always” been that way.

We shouldn’t follow anyone blindly. We need to strike a balance between respecting tradition and refining our belief systems.

So the question we have to ask ourselves is when do we need to defer to those in authority and when do we need to follow our own inner guidance? Knowing which way to go can be tricky and requires some soul searching. Are we truly listening to our inner wisdom or letting our egos misdirect us? What limiting beliefs might be clouding our judgment? Does the authority figure have our best interest at heart?

Here are 8 more questions you need to ask yourself when you pull 5. The Hierophant:

  1. Do you listen to your inner wisdom or do you defer to others?
  2. Is your ego in charge of your life? How is that working out?
  3. Do you need to seek out a guide or teacher?
  4. How have you been playing it safe?
  5. How can you connect with Spirit?
  6. Are you throwing out convention without considering its value?
  7. What are you rebelling against?
  8. Do you trust yourself?

These questions are inspired by my own musings, as well as The Field Notes by Chris-Anne, creator of the Light Seer’s Tarot.

Use them to help you get in touch with your inner guru.

8 Questions to Ask When You Pull The Wheel of Fortune

Today on Magick with Melissa (CLICK HERE to see the 12/21/2020 episode) I talked about Yule and its connection to Christmas, empowering women through canceling diet culture, and making Yule blessing ornaments.

AND I pulled our weekly Tarot card for guidance and healing. This week I asked, “How can we empower ourselves?” I pulled the Wheel of Fortune.

10. The Wheel of Fortune

This card reminds us that we are both masters of our destiny and subject to events and energies outside of our control. So while we must acknowledge our culture, our families, and our environments help to form us and direct our paths, we must also own our power.

And where does our power come from? Choices. What choice will you make today to change your fate? Sometimes, the best choice is to surrender to what is and go with the flow. Otherwise, we can end up depleting our energy fighting against tide.

Here are 8 questions you need to ask yourself when you pull 10. The Wheel of Fortune:

1. Are you getting in the way of your own success/happiness?
2. Why are you so afraid to let go?
3. What’s the worst that could happen if you surrender to this?
4. And if it does, how will you weather the changes?
5. How have you created your current situation?
6. Do you believe in fate?
7. What events have contributed to who you are today?
8. How can you accept and forgive yourself, others, and situations?

These questions are inspired by my own musings and The Field Notes by Chris-Anne, creator of the Light Seer’s Tarot.

Use these questions to process how you can empower yourself.

8 Questions to Ask When You Pull 21 The World

At the end of every Magick with Melissa episode (click HERE to see the latest episode), I provide intuitive guidance by pulling a card from either an oracle deck or a Tarot card deck.

This past Monday (CLICK HERE to see the 12/7/2020 episode) after discussing how to change the way you feel through cultivating an attitude of abundance and gratitude, I asked “What do we need to focus on to become more of the magick we already are?” And I pulled . . .

21TheWorld

21. The World

This card reminds us that we ARE magick, that we are absolutely amazing just the way we are.

It also tells us that an important cycle has come to an end. In this case? It’s the end of the era of self-loathing and self-doubt. Wrap up this chapter in your life by promising to love yourself more and hate yourself less.

Whatever has been going on in your life, stop playing the victim of circumstances. Of course, bad stuff happens to us. Of course, it sucks. But we will never overcome adversity by insisting someone else is at fault.

I know this is not a comfortable idea to embrace. We get angry, we rage against the unfairness. Someone else put us in this situation so why is it left to us to rectify? Because it is. Plain and simple. We can never make anyone fix our problems, but we can save ourselves.

And that’s where ALL our power lies, in our own thoughts and actions. Nowhere else.

Here are 8 questions you need to ask yourself when you pull 21. The World:

  1. Do you believe in magick?
  2. If not, why not? What do you need to do to fully believe in your own magick?
  3. Who have you been blaming for your problems?
  4. What would happen if you took complete responsibility for your life as it is?
  5. How have you created or contributed to your current situation?
  6. What cycle is coming to an end?
  7. How can you create closure?
  8. How are you celebrating your success?

The last question is from The Field Notes by Chris-Anne, creator of the Light Seer’s Tarot. The rest are from my own musings.

Use these questions to process what’s coming to an end for you right and how you can start to believe in your own power–your magick.
