Weekend Tarot Reading for June 23-25, 2017

By: VICTORIA WILSON on JUNE 23, 2017

Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot

New Moon in Cancer (Fri); Venus in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn, Mars in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra (Sat); Mars in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces (Sun)

KNIGHT OF SWORDS, QUEEN OF PENTACLES Rx & FIVE OF PENTACLES

We are pouring our energy and emotions into defending the home base. What threats are encroaching onto your safety and security? Resisting these forces will call on you to articulate your standpoint through writing and talking. While it may seem adequate to approach this from a place of logic and common sense, you’ll get more done by appealing to emotions.

Opportunity – KNIGHT OF SWORDS

Be a champion of the principles that you value, as the Knight of Swords represents someone who fights for ideals. What is important to you, and how far are you willing to go to advocate? In the background, powerful winds blow the trees backwards as the Knight of Swords spurs his horse onwards. Sometimes all we need to get going is a little resistance. If motivation is lacking, take a moment to think about the naysayers who oppose you. How satisfying would it be to prove them wrong?

Warning – QUEEN OF PENTACLES Rx

Self-care is important, even when things are moving fast all around you. As someone whose job it is to care for others, the Queen of Pentacles can lose sight of her own needs. You’re running at a speed that is unsustainable over the long term, and pretty soon you’ll be running on empty. How can you nourish yourself, especially your physical body, to make sure that it stays in top fighting condition? You’re a force to be reckoned with, but you have to take care of yourself to stay that way.

Advice – FIVE OF PENTACLES

But how likely are you to do this if you believe that you deserve little? The Five of Pentacles highlights a fundamental problem of self-worth. You might feel that you have little to offer, but when you take an more objective look at yourself (get input from friends & family), what do you see? If you deserve more compensation for the effort you are putting out, then ask for it. People will value you as much as you value yourself.

Weekend Tarot Reading for June 16-19, 2017

By: VICTORIA WILSON on JUNE 16, 2017

Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot

Neptune stations retrograde in Pisces (Fri); Moon enters Aries (Sat); Sun in Gemini sextile Uranus in Aries, Mercury in Gemini opposite Saturn in Sagittarius (Sun)

SEVEN OF PENTACLES, FOUR OF CUPS & FIVE OF WANDS

Opportunity – SEVEN OF PENTACLES

You’ve been working hard, and you’ve got plenty to show for it. The Seven of Pentacles shows a man admiring the fruit of his labors. Now its time to give yourself a pat on the back before you continue to move forward. This weekend brings an opportunity to take a break and recharge your batteries. It’s also wise to use this time to reflect on how well your approach has been working out. What, if anything, needs to change so that you can use your time more productively?

Warning – FOUR OF CUPS

The man in the Seven of Pentacles stands with his back turned away from the Four of Cups. There is a situation that he does not see directly before him, but is pertinent to his reality regardless. Both of these men occupy their space alone, suggesting that your relationship to solitude is up for consideration. As you reflect on how far you’ve come, be mindful of the times that others have reached out to you in an effort to connect. Were those efforts to build bridges rebuffed, or did you welcome the gesture? If you’ve been intentionally keeping to yourself, is isolationism something that you can honestly say is helping? If it’s not, then consider opening yourself up. No man is an island.

Advice – FIVE OF WANDS

Showing a scene of direct contact, the Five of Wands is about stepping back into the fray in a healthy way. People often get negative vibes from this card because they see conflict as a bad thing. But what if by pitting yourself against multiple opponents, you end up strengthening and improving on your own qualities? It doesn’t serve you to ignore the “competition.” Make people you once saw as enemies into your friends.

Tarot Reading for June 1-12, 2017

By: VICTORIA WILSON on June 1, 2017

Robin Wood Tarot

THE SUN, FOUR OF WANDS & KING OF CUPS

Tomorrow I leave on a business trip to Salt Lake City, Utah. For those of you who don’t know, I am a seasonal employee of the Educational Testing Service, and this is the time of year I fly out to grade AP exams. I won’t have time to post regularly to my social media, so I’m taking a short break from daily readings starting now until Monday, June 12. Here is a general reading for that entire period. I’ll still be around to post sporadically.

Opportunity – THE SUN

The most prominent symbol in The Sun is a naked baby. Riding a white horse with his arms thrown wide open, he radiates joy and innocence. Unlike adults, children don’t shoulder the responsibilities of making the world turn. For many, being a kid is by definition having the freedom to play, sometimes in a world of pure make-believe. The beauty of childhood is that life doesn’t need to be taken so seriously, and the rules don’t matter so much. Children are free to be fully present in the moment and enjoy themselves without having to consider the long-term consequences.

Because this card arrives near the end of the Major Arcana, it represents one of the final processes on the path towards self-realization. The end goal of life is to see ourselves honestly and fulfill what we came here to do. The Sun represents the moment we accept ourselves for who we are and our place in the greater cosmos. For those of us who are still figuring that out, the answer often lies in the games you liked to play as a child. What brightened your day and made you happy? What would happen if you approached your adult problems as a child approaches a game?

Warning – FOUR OF WANDS

A man and woman dance together underneath a huppah – the Jewish symbol of the home. In both The Sun and Four of Wands, there are no walls put up. We can see things transparently for what they are, without suffering any illusions. “Home” is wherever we feel comfortable being ourselves, where we don’t feel the need to pretend or hide.

The Four of Wands warns us against limiting ourselves to the confines of what is already familiar. Don’t be afraid of venturing away from home.

Advice – KING OF CUPS

Sitting above the water, the King of Cups has mastered the art of feeling his emotions in a way that is aligned with his growth and well-being. On the surface he looks calm and put-together. But beneath his feet, strong ocean currents rush forward and pull back. Turbulent emotions do not spoil his sense of peace because he has learned how to reflect rather than react.

Mirroring The Sun, the King of Cups highlights a contrast between the inner and outer. Many of us search for meaning in things outside of ourselves. But the King of Cups reminds us that true happiness can only be found within when we are fully aware of our inner divinity. Because you are a child of God/dess, you are “home” wherever you go.

Weekend Tarot Reading for May 26-29, 2017

By: VICTORIA WILSON on MAY 26, 2017

Gaian Tarot

Mercury in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces; Mars in Gemini opposite Saturn in Sagittarius

AWAKENING, TEN OF AIR & THE GARDENER

I’m heading out to the desert this the Memorial Day weekend, so this reading is for the next 3 days ahead…

Opportunity – AWAKENING

Mercury sextile Neptune brings on a dreamy state of mind. It is within this context that we are waking up to a deep inner truth that reveals just how connected we are to one another. Think of this card as one that brings us closer to the Divine Source from which we all come. Feeling the presence of God/dess as a human is challenging because the earthly plane severs us from His/Her light. From here, we are meant to find our way back to the place we came from, but that can prove challenging when we choose to see ourselves as individuals who are separate from one another. In this card we see a group of people holding hands in a circle. In the center of the circle, a man literally sees the face of God/dess in the sky. God/dess isn’t hard to find. – S/He is present in every person who crosses your path.

Warning – TEN OF AIR

This card closes out a cycle. Being an air card, this cycle has to do with how we perceive and think. In this image ten birds fly in the same direction together. They are individuals in their own right, but they all share the same destination. Everyone, no matter how different we appear to one another, is here to grow and learn. When you feel frustrated with someone, remember that person is doing his or her best with the knowledge they were given.

Advice – THE GARDENER

It becomes a lot easier to forgive when you can see yourself in the person who has violated your trust. Forgiveness isn’t something you do for the other person, it’s something that you do for yourself so that you can move on and be fruitful. Who wants to carry the burden of resentment and anger? This weekend is about releasing all of that to clear out psychic blockages that hold you trapped in a limited mindset.The Universe wants you to grow and expand.
