I've been playing with divination since I was in high school. I remember long before I had a deck of cards writing 'yes' and 'no' on tiny pieces of paper and putting them in a sandwich bag, closing my eyes and asking 'does he like meeeeee?'. And how many of us had 'yes' and 'no' written on each side of our erasers? Did it work? I can't remember, even if he did like me I wouldn't strike up the nerve to talk to a boy for another ten years or so, so I guess I'll never know!
I've been dabbling with the Tarot for years now, but I'm still learning - I'll always be learning! The symbolism and energy of the cards is so rich and deep that I kind of feel like right now I'm just floating around on top. On a lilo. Drinking a Pina Colada. It's a lot of fun, but I've only dangled my legs in so far.
But you don't have to have anyidea of what you are doing to receive messages from the Universe through Tarot. Even if you've just opened your first deck and given the cards a 'knock', a prayer, some sage, incense, whacked a crystal on top or whatever it is you feel like you want to do, you can still find so much meaning and truth if you just use your intuition! You might not know what the card means but you can work out how it makes you feel. And if you're still using a book to help you (I am!) then look for any words or phrases that stand out. Some of the passages in Tarot books can be soooo long and by the time you've finished reading it you forgot what you were asking in the first place! Skim through the words, what feels like your message? What makes you gasp and think - OMG that's so me!?
I asked for a message this week for myself and anyone who happens upon their lucky chance to come by this blog, and the 3 of wands came up for us. Looks like we are back to square one this week, which is no surprise really, as Mercury Retrograde is about to hit! Our energy might be scattered this week because we've just got so many darn irons in the fire! But sometimes set backs are just reminders for us to get centered and re-focused on what we really, really want.
This week we really need to take some time to reassess. Ah, and it's the first of June, what a fantastic time to think about what we want to achieve during the second half of this year. You have six months left of 2014, what are you going to have to show by the end of it?
Love, light and six month plans!
