Welcome to your weekly Tarot for the Soul reading!
If you have been guided to this reading, then you are in the right place, my friend. This reading is meant for you.
As always, I have drawn two cards from my Osho Zen Tarot deck.
The first card represents the gifts that will be showered upon you this week by the Universe. We always have gifts being delivered to us—and spiritual mastery lies in slowing down enough to be able to cultivate gratitude. Our soul longs to say “thank you”… and, so, by taking this moment to give thanks, we generate even more positive energy so that more and more gifts may manifest in the future!
The second card represents your areas for growth this week. Remember: there is no life without challenge…no light without dark, no yin without yang. Life in human form is a mixed bag of circumstances and lessons. It is in our highest wisdom to recognize and embrace all aspects, even the ones that are painful. Our soul needs challenges in order to grow. So, stand and face these growth opportunities with an open, courageous, loving heart.
~ YOUR READING ~
This week is going to be a little different, dear friends.
As you know, I normally pull cards and interpret them for you.
What I’d like to invite you to do this week is to use your own powers of intuition to interpret the cards. Don’t worry—I will guide you.
Yes, you can do this!
So, I have drawn two cards, as usual, representing your gifts and growth opportunities for the week. Instead of offering direct interpretations for you, I will instead offer you some guiding questions. You may want to reflect on these questions by writing in your journal, or perhaps speak the answers out loud. Whatever ways you choose to work with the questions, you will soon clearly understand the significance of the cards and what they mean for your life.
One important tip about card interpretation: Don’t rush it. Give yourself adequate space for this exploration. At least twenty minutes is needed, or possibly more. Turn off your phone; unhook from social media, play some soothing meditation music, and light a candle or burn some incense. Create a sacred space for yourself. This helps unwind the busy nervous system, so we can more easily tap into our intuition.
Indeed, our intuition works best when we are relaxed.
As you breathe and relax, just gently play with the questions. What are the cards saying? What are you saying? Remember that there are no right or wrong answers. Every answer that pops into your head is exactly the Divine Guidance that will help you on your path. Don’t overthink it; just let it flow.
Dear friends, it is so important for you to understand that you can do what I do. Reading cards is not some “special” gift exclusive to some. No! Reading cards and other intuitive arts are simply that: arts. They are creative endeavors, available to all. Yes, it does take a bit of time and effort to feel comfortable in any art—but once we make the commitment to begin our training and explore ourselves through our intuitive sight…then, the world begins to open up its grand magic as never before.
And now…without further adieu, here are your cards!
Your gifts for this week are represented by the Thunderbolt (XVI of Major Arcana).
Here are some questions to ponder…
What do fire and lightning have in common? Where is the fire located, and why? Where is the lightning striking, and why? Who is the large shaded figure in the background of the card? Is this figure floating or is she/he resting on the ground? How would you characterize the emotional state of the two naked figures who are falling? How do the colors in the card make you feel? How would you describe the movement, action, or story of the card?
As you discern the symbols in this card, remember that gifts are not often what they appear. Often, gifts can be shrouded in mystery and paradox.
How does the Thunderbolt speak to you today? What does it whisper about your week ahead?
Your challenges of growth are seen in the Compromise card (6 of Rainbows).
Here are some questions to ponder…
What emotions are brought up within you as you gaze at the card? What are the facial expressions of these two Japanese characters? Why are they touching pinkies? What kinds of clothing and objects are adorning their bodies? Would you want to share a cup of tea with these two men—why or why not? What are the colors of the card, and how do the colors relate to what they are doing? What situation or relationship in your life is represented by this card? What does it mean to compromise? What does it mean to agree? What is truth? How would you describe the movement, action, or story of this card?
How does the Compromise card speak to you in this moment? What truths is it trying to reveal and help you understand regarding your week ahead?
What challenges is the Compromise card attempting to forewarn you of?
In what ways will you meet those challenges? What intentions will you set?
I hope you’ve enjoyed interpreting your cards for this week.
