Everyday Tarot, 06/07/11: Breaking Free! 10 of Fire

daily-tarot-forecast-ten-wands-osho-zenYou’ll hear Tarot people talk about repeats. Best I can gather, this is an extremely widespread phenomena, and not surprising. Tarot points out truth, sometimes loud!

But I’ve also noticed some repeats are deck specific— whenever I pick up Osho Zen, odds have been 50/50 I’m going to see the card for Today’s Tarot forecast.

wands10s“Suppression” is the Ten of Fire in Osho Zen, better known as the Ten of Wands or “Lord of Oppression,” associated with Saturn in Sagittarius. Tarot tens indicate the culmination of the energy’s expression, and the Tarot Wands frequently discuss creative or work-related pursuits.

I get the Ten of Wands often enough anyway; can you say “overextend?” But Suppression has a slightly different flavor than the RWS Ten of Wands. Here, the figure is not carrying too much, but weighted down with organic-looking ropes, actually rooted into the wall. He probably could free himself—these vines are loose and there is light above him. But looking down at the ropes, he won’t notice that. He doesn’t see a way out.

Jinjan asked if I would keep the Woo-Woo coming, and I assured her I would. I’ve had big shifts on that front.

free from suppressionSuppression is exactly how I’ve addressed woo-woo most of my life. I just buried that part of my experience. I’d keep it to myself, marvel for a minute, and then promptly forget it. All the times I just “knew” something,  out-of-body episodes, mysterious encounters,  or magical serendipity?  Um, no.  Not opening my mouth! Like I need more ways to be identified as odd? I am already incomprehensible enough to the outside world. And I needed to support myself. If people think I’m nuts, they may not trust me with their passwords, you know. It would have complicated remaining family relationships. Long and short of it, there are a million and one reasons why I felt it had to be suppressed.

I don’t know exactly what changed at this point. It’s been a process, at least a decade coming and it feels like it’s culminating now.  I’ve never allowed myself so much freedom, to say what I think, notice and believe. It’s simultaneously intoxicating and nerve-wracking! But you know, I am finding I really like it, anyway…

Have you suppressed?

  1. Oh boy did I ever today. 90% of my 10th house is in capricorn, but it is ruled by Sagittarius, this is the most timely and classic text book card in life my right now. What a day, what a feeling.

  3. Bummer… I feel like I have to suppress because I have a 9-year old kid and we live in a super-conservative area. But some people know!

    • There are many valid reasons for keeping faith to yourself; I would never argue otherwise. Just make sure you’re not denying your soul in the process, you know? You may not always specify where you get wisdom from. Just keep living the wisdom; that’s what you don’t want to bury.

  7. OMG YOU DID IT AGAIN! I just realized I had been suppressing my own happiness, my needs and wants and desires for…years? AND my woo-woo! I am taking a sabbatical to really try and get that sorted out before I move one step further. I want to conduct my life from a place of self-care and happiness and my own best interests rather than fear or insecurity or people pleasing.
    Your antennae must be tuned to the exact right universal frequency!
    Thanks again

  9. I’ve suppressed my temper when people act inappropriately. Not anymore. Someone crosses the line and they get a jolt from my Pluto in Virgo in the 3rd. (It’s opposite my Moon in Pisces on the 9th, so they’re shocked that I’m not always sugar and spice.) In the past, I had a hard time modulating it. Now I know a little blast will do the trick. Sounds bad, but without that little blast, no one would know they’d done wrong!

  11. Yep, I have, Dixie. And it has become very clear that I can not do that anymore. I am WOO-WOO.
    No getting around it – it’s who I am, and I have to put myself out there. I’m very, very good at what I do, and it’s time to start doing it.
    Hey! We oughta start a club! (I nominate you as president.)

  13. Do you think it’s Neptune retro in Pisces? Cause I’m eatin the extra woo woo up!

    Yes, I have suppressed and lately I’ve been letting it fly a little more. I think Aries boosted that. It has been shocking to some, but yet coming from me they should be used to that by now!

    I’m likin the feeling of culmination coming in.
