XIX The Yellow Brick Road

ic_yellow_roadWhen this card appears in your reading, a burst of spiritual sunshine can enlighten your mind and warm your heart. Fill the dark caverns of your psyche with the white light of divine wisdom. Create a rainbow bridge of compassion and understanding over which you can travel to meet with your fellow pilgrims on the path of life.

Rise before dawn, walk to a nearby nature sanctuary, and re-experience the wonder of the day’s rebirth. Visit the ocean and absorb the splendor of the rising or setting Sun with its orange-reddish glow in the western sky.

Light a candle, meditate in an aura of peace, and send your healing thoughts and prayers it to humanity on a multicolored beam.

Realize that you, no matter what your flaws and challenges may be, are a light to the world.

Inner Child Five of Hearts

Inner Child Five of Hearts

Five of Hearts

Often, during our darkest hours, there is a need for reflection and rest,

represented in this card by the sea turtles, the calm ocean, and the crescent Moon. 

Then, suddenly, something magical can happen.

The mermaid of the Four of Hearts who experiences sorrow and hopeless feelings opens a treasure chest in the Five of Hearts,

and is offered a special Winged Heart.

She gazes at a golden pentacle at the center of this heart, a symbolic star of initiation reflecting her cosmic guiding star in the heavens.

 

The pentacle is the most widely revered of all esoteric symbols. Traditionally, its meaning refers to the perfection of humanity.

The pentacle can act as a spiritual protector and is connected to the mystical significance of the number 5. 

The main quality inherent in this number is that of change. 

In this card, the mermaid is experiencing a change of heart: she is healing the wounds of the past.

 

When change occurs in your life, especially at an emotional level, you may feel confused and vulnerable.

The changes now happening in your life are guided and protected by the seal of the golden star residing at the center of your heart.

This star is your Higher Self.

Rest assured that creativity will follow this interlude of chaos.

Don’t let the blues get you down.

Anticipate a renewal of both interpersonal and divine love.

8. Strength

Soul Message: Mountain Pride with noble beauty, teach me to honor my responsibility, to walk my talk and with love impart, to follow my journey, a Path with Heart. –Isha Lerner (from The Power of Flowers)

Alchemy and Transformation: At this stage of initiation, it is imperative that the individual apply the wisdom of the previous card, “The Journey Home,” to everyday tasks. The step into “Strength” is a true test of character for the individual. How will you use your power? How will you use your will? As you step into the world of conscious living, you must move beyond the limitations of the past and begin to engage with the skills and attributes of self-mastery.

Awakening to the Archetype – The Earth Mother: With the Strength card, you are invited into the shrine of the Earth Mother, where the strength and integrity of the Divine Feminine is stored, vitalized, and regenerated. Strength is born from the heart. Her mission is to refine the nature of humanity, magically opening to the possibility of right relationship with the world.

Everyday Encounters: There are many ways to strengthen your attunement to the earth, as well as to your life path or destiny. Take walks in the mountains. Meet the wild woods and let the wind caress your skin. Get down on your hands and knees and behold the virgin budding of the first spring flowers. Lay on your back on the bare earth and watch the Moon rise and set. Let Earth nourish you.

Nature’s Healers: Mountain Pride

XV The Big Bad Wolf

ic_bad_wolf 265x429

XV The Big Bad Wolf ~ Isha Lerner

When this card appears in your reading, embrace the fears, doubts, and unintegrated aspects of your psyche with open arms. Let your light shine into the darker regions of your mind. Accept yourself as a blending of higher and lower selves, a union of spiritual and material bodies. Call up your anger, jealousies, and antipathies, and transfigure them into joy, compassion, and understanding.

Where there is separation, sow harmony and togetherness. Where there is pain from mental anguish, offer heartfelt sensitivity and simple acts of kindness to friends and relatives. Reverse the pattern of lying to yourself and others. Learn to speak and live out the truth of your existence to the best our ability. ~ Isha Lerner

The Big Bad Wolf appears as today’s card. It is preparing us for the full moon on 2-22!   We are walking on our path, and then suddenly, out of the corner of our eye, the big bad wolf appears and attempts to frighten us. What hidden forces are stealing your joy? Are you avoiding seeing a truth about what is restricting you of your freedom? Are there hidden forces of negativity restraining you from achieving your full potential? The full moon will shine a light on these aspects of internal bondage.

What can be done to put “the devil” in his own place, and  so you can face your fears and carry on towards your goal?

In your heart, find a true vision of who you are, and cling to the power you have within to free yourself from any entanglement that holds you back.

 

Enjoy Life!

Four of Wands Inner Child Tarot

Four of Wands

Four of Wands

One of the ultimate mysteries of Creation is the life force contained within a seed. When planting a garden, we are the soil much like we would create a cozy bed for a child. We cover the seed with rich soil in order to allow it a period of gestation. Soon, it blossoms into a triumphant plant, bursting forth above the ground and reaching upward toward the sky.

The metaphor of the seed is applicable to every aspect of our lives: the seed of knowledge, the seed of truth, the germination of consciousness, and so on. This card depicts the planting of new wisdom and the reconstruction of an intuitive foundation. The garden has corners, representing the four seasons and the four cardinal directions.

In ancient Greece, the symbols of the seasons were four women: Summer was adorned with a crown of grain; Autumn wore a basket of fruit; Spring wore a wreath of flowers; Winter was bareheaded. The fairies pictured in this card represent springtime, when new planting takes place and a new season of Sun and sprouting awaits.

In your life, new ideas are seeding themselves.   Prepare your life for the fruits that you will bear. Plant your creativity and watch it grow.

Enjoy Life!
