Hello Tarot Family!
You have a very special reading this week, and I simply can’t wait to get into it with you.
I love how this reading corresponds with the emergence of an early spring here in the Northern hemisphere.
After a long and dark winter, the sun is starting to shine again, and your reading predicts you’ll benefit from this seasonal shift in a meaningful way.
Your first card, The Sun, is a sign you’re going to feel lighter, happier, and more hopeful very soon.
Not only will your mood shift towards the positive, but you’ll find everything seems to want to work in your favor.
Often, just before a breakthrough, life can feel pretty heavy.
You are now passing through the heaviness and into a grand completion. Your second card, The World, means you have reached a significant transition which will bring more joy into your life.
Remember to take time to congratulate yourself and enjoy the fruits of your labor, as recommended by your third card, The Four of Wands. This card is a reminder to pause, reflect, and give yourself due accolades for even the simplest of accomplishments.
You’re really going to love what the cards have to say, so let’s take a closer look at what’s to come in the week ahead.
#1: The Sun | Receiving The Love Around You
Are you ready for warm, sunny relief to shine into your life? When The Sun card is drawn, joy is right around the corner. Just like rays of sunshine on a cool day, this positive card is a sign you’ll be experiencing the brighter side of things very soon.
If you are experiencing troubles in your life right now, you can expect a simple, sweet resolution. You will be able to set aside your burdens in the coming days. A renewed sense of optimism is beginning to blossom.
As you can see on the face of the card, the Sun is shining happily down on its gleeful recipients. Sunflowers stretch towards the rays, and a naked child happily rides atop a white horse.
The child is symbolic of innocence. His nakedness represents the unabashed truth. Nothing needs to hide in the loving warmth of the sun.
If you’ve been in a dark place this winter, expect to feel the glimmers of hope light up within you once again.
The Sun is a card of success, vitality, and progress. Let yourself open to the rebirth and abundance that’s just around the corner.
The wisdom of The Sun card is to to point yourself towards what is positive and beautiful. The many sunflowers depicted on the card are a reminder of this. As you know, sunflowers point their big, beautiful faces toward the sun, following its path as it travels through the sky.
If you’ve noticed yourself getting stuck in negative thinking, now is the time for recalibration. Negative thinking has a momentum of its own – but so does positive thinking. Whichever you practice consistently, whether consciously or by habit, will determine the way that you experience and view life.
Give yourself the gift of noticing the beauty around you. Take time to write about what you are grateful for in your journal. Make a point to take in nourishing things, such as music that touches you, food that heals you, and conversations that make you feel seen, loved, and respected.
Just like the sun, put your attention on what you would like to grow and thrive in your life. You have the ability to bring forward sustained success right now, so use this time to focus on what is meaningful to you.
Our solar system’s sun gives infinitely. The Sun card represents universal love and joy, which also pours out infinitely. This love can be expressed and received on a personal level, but it transcends the personal dimension as well.
Letting the sunshine in will help you with the special completion occurring in your life, alluded to in the following cards. Your next card indicates that something is coming to an end, and all signs point to it being a very special occasion.
#2: The World | Nourishment Brings Achievement
Are you ready to upgrade your life?
You are about to have a big win. Some type of successful completion is happening right now. This could be a life path achievement, like finishing a project or the conclusion of an education program, or it could even be a promotion in your work life.
Your accomplishment could also be the completion of a karmic cycle. In other words, something that has bothered you, and occurred over and over again, has finally run its course. You have learned your lesson, and now it’s time to move on.
One way or another, the knowledge you have gained is causing a shift that will change you forever.
That said, if you haven’t reached the end of a project, or something still feels out of reach, The World card is a sign to keep going and not to give up. You are supported in your endeavor, and you will accomplish your goals if you keep working at them.
The relationship between The Sun card and The World card is worth exploring. The Sun, at an essential level, represents universal love, or eros. Eros can be seen as a unifying energy.
The World, on the other hand, is symbolic of completion, evolution, and wholeness. The universal love symbolized by The Sun card is how you are bringing wholeness into yourself and your life.
This divine, impersonal love is all around you.
Allowing yourself to receive love into your being will help unify your body, mind, and soul. Follow the joy and love around you, like the sunflowers follow the Sun.
You are evolving, growing, and learning. Loving attention is the driving force that can make this all possible.
Whether you are completing something of great importance in your life, or achieving internal success, it’s time to celebrate yourself and what you have accomplished.
Your next card is like returning home after a long and powerful journey. You have grown immensely. Let yourself and those around you celebrate all that you are.
#3: Four of Wands | Celebrating Your Success
Are you willing to celebrate yourself? Or does it feel like you can’t stop to enjoy what you have done?
Having made great strides in your life, either externally or internally, you might feel poised to keep on going. The momentum of accomplishment is with you, but it’s time to celebrate your achievements, give yourself a pat on the back, and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
It can be easy to feel like what you’ve done is not enough. Especially while knowing there is still much more on your plate that needs attending to, it can be easy to slip right past acknowledging yourself into the next phase.
The Four of Wands is a reminder to mark this transition. Something has come to completion. You’ve graduated to a new level within yourself and in your life. You deserve to mark the occasion.
In modern life, there are fewer and fewer rituals around significant completions. Graduation ceremonies are still practiced; however, many life achievements can slip right by without being properly marked.
If you are aware of what you’ve accomplished, the Four of Wands is a sign to celebrate it with a ritual that is meaningful to you. This could be something small, like eating your favorite meal with a loved one or taking a day off to do your favorite activity.
On the other hand, you could make a big display, and celebrate with pizazz. You know your own style, so give yourself a sweet gift and recognize your accomplishments in some special way.
If you feel murky about what achievements you could celebrate, this is a perfect moment to do a brief retelling of the past few years. Spend an hour or two reliving the last few years in your imagination. Choose a date, and then in your head, follow the timeline from there of each occurrence up to the present moment.
Let yourself follow the timeline of your memories. Allow your memories to come forward by natural association. In other words, when you choose one memory to look at, it will spark another memory, which will spark another. Let yourself follow the thread.
Doing this changes the way you view life and helps to place you more solidly in the present moment of your life story.
After exploring this very beneficial practice, congratulate yourself for being where you are now. You are alive! This, in and of itself, is miraculous and deserves recognition.
You Are A Miracle
It isn’t often we get to relish in our success. When The Sun card shines, however, it’s a sign to let down your hair and enjoy the simple and beautiful things around you.
The Sun card is a sign you have been walking your talk and life is giving you much needed levity and love, so enjoy yourself! While you do, turn your attention to what is truly beautiful in your life.
Universal love, represented by The Sun card, signifies the precise type of energy that brings about a great change. The World card is an indication you will be completing something of great importance very soon.
While this may or may not be an external life event, give yourself time to reflect on the last few years. Doing so will remind you just how much you’ve experienced and will transform how you see yourself and your life.
It’s important to celebrate even the small wins right now. Regardless of if you’ve achieved a peak goal in your life, or merely survived the darkest part of the winter, allow for deep appreciation of yourself and the very fact you are alive right now.
I hope this week is filled with loving sunshine, and you allow yourself time to celebrate the blessing you bring by being alive on this planet right now.
And in Service,
P.S. What accomplishments are you proud of in your life? Did you get to celebrate and mark what you’ve done, or did it fly by without getting the attention it deserved? Write to me on the blog, I’d love to hear from you.
