Hello Lovely Friends,
This is Jonathan from Tarot Reading Daily, with your Weekly Tarot Reading.
I’m in awe of how many people are continuing to grow and evolve during these turbulent times. I often receive messages and letters from people telling me about the amazing success and self development occurring in their lives.
I know it’s not like this for all of us, and certainly not all of the time. We go through phases of growth, and times when it seems like we’ve plateaued, or are even stepping backwards, but this is part of a very natural process. What seems like a backwards step… or five, may actually be giving you the reorientation you need to start down a more aligned path.
It can honestly be hard to tell where we are in the process of our life journey because we can’t see around the next bend, let alone the next moment. This is why touching base with our higher self, angels, or divine intelligence can be helpful.
This coming week will provide you with insight that needs to be integrated on the go. In other words, there won’t be time to bask in the success of you accomplishments, because life will already be testing to see if you’re ready for the next level. However, if you stay firm in your truth, you might find yourself in a revelatory state by the end of the week.
Let’s take a look.
The World: Get Ready To Move Ahead
The World card is the final card of the Major Arcana. The Fool has traveled through the archetypal journey, evolving and growing into mastery. While you may or may not have reached mastery yet, The World card is signifying a grand completion, or one soon to come.
All the work you have done, either willingly, or by being dragged along kicking and screaming, has brought you to this exact moment. Look around you, take stock in everything in your life at this very moment. Breath deep and remember that there isn’t anywhere else you could be but exactly right here and now.
This is an ideal time to look back on the recent, and not so recent, events that have brought you to this particular moment. You might write down the story of your past few years, highlighting what you have learned, the challenges you’ve faced, and the victories, big or small, that you’ve won.
Every ending comes with a new beginning, and often the beginning arrives sooner than we would expect. Take note of any loose ends that are ready to be cleaned up. Notice if there are things you’ve been avoiding. Addressing them may take less time than you think, plus doing so will restore your energy being sapped by these unattended elements.
Seven of Wands: Warrior Stance
The Seven of Wands is all about strengthening your footing. You have done deep work on yourself, and other people are starting to see your success. Those we commonly call ‘haters’ will start to come out of the woodwork the more you shine and succeed. This card represents a time when your steel will be tested.
Whenever we ascend to new heights, whether in our consciousness or career, a reciprocal energy will push against us. This is nature’s way of strengthening our new standing, and testing us to see if we deserve our new positioning in life.
Now is a time to get rooted in your beautiful, empowered self. Stand firm in what you believe and stay true to your word. If life comes at you this week, plant your feet, breath in your belly, shine that radiant heart of yours, and don’t budge. This is not a time to back down or give into cultural or conditioned pressure. It’s a time to fight for what you believe in.
Sometimes when life becomes stormy, or we feel like we’re hitting a wall, we can misinterpret this as a sign we’re doing something wrong, or heading in the wrong direction. If you’re experiencing barriers getting in the way of your plans or dreams this week, don’t turn back, push forward.
The High Priestess: Harness Your Intuition
When life feels confusing or challenging, turning inwards will often provide the key to finding clarity. The High Priestess is a master of intuition, the unconscious, and esoteric secrets. She sits at the gateway between the known and the unknown. Her voice speaks to you through your intuition and dreams.
During this week, as you process your past, and firmly defend your new stance in life, pay particular attention to your dreams. Take note of any words that pop out at you while driving or reading. Pay attention to your intuition and notice the symbolism in what’s happening around you.
The High Priestess is whispering to you, and what you perceive on the surface is almost never what is in her depths. Don’t expect to get a clear cut answer, rather listen to the emotion behind what you are experiencing, listen to life as if it is a beautiful, complex, song or movie. Ask yourself, what is behind this? What does this mean to me?
You are being asked to let yourself get quiet and to contemplate your deepest questions. Be prepared for unconventional answers. You may not understand why you are called in a particular direction, or why meeting with someone seems so important, so don’t spend too much energy trying to figure it out. Instead, trust your deeper intuition, and see what comes of it.
An Important Milestone
Imagine the first day at a new school or job, or picking up an instrument you want to learn. It’s exciting to think about the new people you’ll meet or the songs you’ll be able to play, but when you start to get into it, it can be challenging at the beginning.
This is part of the reason so many people choose to remain where they are; they struggle getting over the first hurdle and decide they either can’t do it, or it’s just not worth it.
The truth is, this first hurdle is there to get you ready. It forces you to be present with what’s in front of you. At first, it requires all of your attention, but it doesn’t take long before you get the hang of things, and begin feeling more comfortable.
This week marks an important milestone, and like crossing any threshold, there will be some pushback, along with new insights and exciting new possibilities. Remember all of your experiences have brought you to this moment. You are resilient, your ancestors were resilient, which is part of why you are here. You can stand in your truth and walk your talk. I believe in you.
P.S. Is there a situation in your life where you’re finding it hard to stand up in your truth? I’m also curious about your dreams, and what might be coming to completion for you right now. Tell me about it on the blog, I’d love to hear from you.
