09/28/11: Acting on What you Value | Ace of Cups


“The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” –Dalai Lama

I had an astrology reading recently. She noted I’m wrapping up a phase of defining what I truly value. You’d think that wouldn’t be much of surprise, wouldn’t you? But it was. Without the benefit of conscious awareness, that is exactly what I’ve been doing. Today’s Tarot forecast showed up to drive the point home.

We’ve got the Ace of Cups or Root of the Powers of Water, associated with the Water Element. Aces mark potential and  beginnings: young, sometimes fragile energy. As Water, this ace may appear as indication of a new love of any type, a renewed passion of some sort, or even to herald burgeoning development of intuitive ability. The Water element rules feelings, imagination, and psychic ability.

Tarot Nova excels via simplicity, and this Ace is a great example—our hand holds the cup. We have the power. Ivy and greenery exemplifies growth spurred through acting in concert with our feelings. Grapes feed us physically, the flower shows us blossoming spiritually, all accomplished through the virtue of an open heart.

Having what someone else values is irrelevant. Knowing clearly what YOU value, so you can make sure you live in concert, brings the deepest reward.

The Ace of Cups carries a message both simple and profound: follow your heart. Even when you don’t know the way, your heart does.

Are you following your heart yet? If not, can you move in that direction?

Everyday Tarot, 07/13/11: Fresh Thinking | Ace of Swords

ace-swords-todays-tarot-forecastThere’s the minute, when you really “get” it. A new idea has found it’s way into your sphere of awareness, and all of a sudden, everything  shifts. Snap, click, bam! It takes a bit for your eyes to adjust to the light that’s been flicked on.

Today’s Tarot forecast is the Ace of Sword, or Root of the Powers of Air. It’s the essence of the Air Element—thought, reason, and logic. The Ace of Swords makes things conscious. Maybe it’s a new perspective, a new idea, or a new possibility you haven’t been aware of before.  This thought form is young, though, and will require energy to grow.

Swords like unadorned directness, so let’s oblige.

Look at that fresh inspiration—the one that just hit you? It is every bit as valuable as it seems. Run with it! You can take off, if you follow through.

Have any fresh ideas lately?

When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others. – Peace Pilgrim

With all this Mercurial energy flirting with Neptune, I’ve been seeing nothing but lack of clarity everywhere I turn. I was looking for a little direction and definition when I pulled out the cards for Today’s Tarot forecast, thinking I should pull extras because I knew one wouldn’t be clear enough! So I opted for a simple, 3-card Mind / Body / Spirit spread.
