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:
Do you listen to your inner wisdom or do you defer to others?
Is your ego in charge of your life? How is that working out?
Do you need to seek out a guide or teacher?
How have you been playing it safe?
How can you connect with Spirit?
Are you throwing out convention without considering its value?
What are you rebelling against?
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.
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. This card is an indicator of luck or destiny and it is a Major Arcana signifier of change. If you receive it during a Tarot reading (you can find some on peninsuladailynews.com) then there’s no doubt that some big new change is on the horizon for you.
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.
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 . . .
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:
Do you believe in magick?
If not, why not? What do you need to do to fully believe in your own magick?
Who have you been blaming for your problems?
What would happen if you took complete responsibility for your life as it is?
How have you created or contributed to your current situation?
What cycle is coming to an end?
How can you create closure?
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.
This is the time for action! What have you been waiting for? Because waiting time is O-V-E-R over.
You’ve got things to do, people to see, and places to go. This message is loud and clear, and there’s not much room for nuance.
So if you have NO idea what you should be doing or who you should be seeing, then it’s time to sit down and ask yourself a few questions. Or even if you have an inkling, take some time to get clear on your direction before you hop on your motorbike and race off.
Here are 8 questions you need to ask yourself when you pull Eight of Wands:
What have you been waiting for?
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
What are your priorities?
Do you have clear goals?
Have you been putting something off?
If so, why?
What do you need to feel comfortable about moving forward?
What if you did it anyway?
These questions are in part inspired by The Field Notes by Chris-Anne, creator of the Light Seer’s Tarot, and part from my own musings.
Use these questions to get pointed in the right direction and then go for it!
