Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: King of Swords

63

When pulled upright this card is saying that you should stay objective with whatever you are dealing with right now. You really need to lean on your intelligence to make your point and achieve your goals. Make sure your mind stays sharp and you stay vigilant so you can notice any problems coming your way. It is important to stay stern and to have clarity at all times right now. Before making any decisions you need to think, about all the possible consequences with any choice you could make, to make the best choice. It is key that you get rid of any emotional biases to make the most informed decision. Now is a time to reason with other people and be honest with them on what you’ve observed. This card is saying that you should be able to go into any situation and stay objective while making a decision. This card can also be about high ethical standards.

When pulled in reverse this card is about someone who is abusive and manipulative. This person is likely misusing their authoritative power, or their drive. They are being persuasive through manipulation to get the things they so selfishly want. This card could also be saying that you are showing off how smart you are by using big words that aren’t necessary. And lastly, this card could be saying you have some anger issues which cause you to be explosive. 

Here is a tarot spread if you deal with the last issue; explosive anger. This should help you identify underlying issues and how to go about dealing with it. First I would take the king of swords out of the deck and meditate on it while focusing in on this anger. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

ae28e4600a6e6e23be121599b5962249

When pulled upright it is about it being a great time to go and travel. You should feel charged with life and feel ready to go get things done. You are adventurous and can find something fun to do regardless of the situation. When you get this card prepare to be entertained. This card means there won’t be a dull moment. This card also suggests you want to get something important done. This card could also be saying you may be moving to a new home soon. If you are starting a new project you should do so with lots of enthusiasm and energy. Don’t go too crazy though, stay balanced and keep your goals realistic. And of course all actions have consequences so have a plan in place for those consequences. This card can also be about an event that you don’t expect to happen in the near future. If you pull the knight of wands with the eight of wands prepare for a lot of changes in your life. The knight of cards often represents a quick change (job, residence, etc).

When pulled in reverse this card is about being frustrated and experiencing a lot of delays. You may be feeling like you aren’t getting anywhere and are feeling angry about it. This card can also be about losing power. Due to over-compensating for this lose of power you may become negative and lose some self-esteem.

I thought a fun spread for today would be one about travel! So first I would pull the knight of wands out and meditate on it while thinking of travelling. The shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Five of Wands

b7dfd2a065c8be3846b8e73dd0cad638

When pulled upright this card is about conflict in your life. This conflict may already exist or it may be in the works of starting up now. This card could also be about communication problems. This card depicts 5 entities who are all fighting with each other. No one is listening to the other. They all want to be heard and none want to listen. This problem can often be solved if the person asking the question take the first steps to opening up communication. Everyone will be heard which means everyone will be happy. This card can also talk about experiencing competition in your life (this could already be happening or be about to happen). This competition will take place in an area of your life that you are not used to competing in. This card suggests that you take on the challenge and view it as a way to grow without showing any malice. This card could also be about a personal struggle you are having. You need to address this problem you are having and find a solution.

When pulled in reverse this card is about how you deal with conflict. It says that instead of dealing with disagreements and conflict you avoid them. Sometimes this is a good things but not always. Other times it can result in your bottling things up which may cause you to explode later on.

Here is a tarot spread based on the 5 of wands. This is a great spread for when you’re trying to work through a conflict. First I would take out the 5 of wands and meditate on it while thinking about the conflict that’s happening in your life. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

11 Signs You’re an Indigo Child

While I was researching about being an empath, I came across information about starseeds. As you know, if you’ve read my post about starseeds, starseeds are people whose soul originate from a different planet. There are different types of starseeds but in general there are 3 main types. There are the indigo, the crystal, and the rainbow children. While doing my research I found I realized that myself, my brother, and my sister all have characteristics of each type of starseed. My brother matches the general description of an indigo. I match the crystal and my little sister matches the rainbow. Today I am going to talk about the indigo children. Do remember though that this is a general description and you may not fit with all of these signs. That’s okay, every soul is different. When I get to the signs of being an indigo child, I will give examples about my brother and how I see each trait in him.

So what exactly is an indigo child? An indigo child is a soul that originates from a different planet. That soul comes to earth to help improve it. An indigo tends to be the person tearing down the institutions. They seek the truth and are quite good at telling when they are being deceived, even at a young age. Another thing to note is a lot of indigo children are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD or other mood disorders. Indigos tend to be headstrong and freethinking which to the medical field can look like these types of disorders. (This is not to say that all children with ADD/ADHD are Indigo children.)

#1 You are strong willed.

My brother is a very strong willed person. Our parents are divorced and as a kid he always did whatever he wanted. I would let myself feel guilty for wanting to spend time with one parent over the other, and would never have the will to ask permission to be with that parent. My brother though had no issues. He would demand what he wanted. Now as a young adult my brother has moved to the city I live in. It is 3 hours away from our family. Everyone tried to tell him to stay in our hometown. No one thought he would be able to make it. Now he’s living in an apartment, working, and reaching his goals.

#2 You’re a freethinker

So this means you don’t just follow with whatever society says. You think for yourself and you make your own decisions. My brother is definitely a freethinker. I tend to side with society and so when it comes to me making decisions it happens rather quickly because I don’t think freely. My brother though he thinks for himself and makes choices for himself. This often results in me not agreeing because it is often the opposite of what I would do. But at the end of the day he does what he wants without the worry of society and I think he is better for it.

#3 You’re a nonconformist

When you’re a child this probably looks like disobedience, and being a troublesome kid. As an adult it probably shows itself in not liking to be controlled by others. My brother has always taken the harder road. He could never just do what was told of him and listen to authority. He always had to do the exact opposite and learn everything the hard way. He learns best from mistakes rather than reflecting on the things he’s done right. This is neither bad or good. It just is.

#4 . You’re a truth seeker

The truth is important to you. You are quite good at being about to tell when you are being lied to or if someone is hiding something from you. I think this is a very personal trait and is something I can’t really give examples of for my brother. I feel he is the only one who really knows how he feels about this.

#5 You are highly intuitive

For my brother I feel this comes up in him being an empath. He is very good at picking up others emotions. I believe he draws a lot of low energy people, a lot of energy vampires. He has always attracted a lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses. He has such a nurturing personality that these energy vampires take advantage of him and use up all his energy. This is physically harmful for him because he is literally always sleeping. He’s always so drained. So while being intuitive can be a blessing, make sure the indigo in your life is not being taken advantage of for it. 

#6 You want to change the world

This could be in big things or smaller things. Maybe some people will want to be a president, or a scientist, or a humanitarian. My brother he has all these aspirations to work in various selfless fields. Next fall he is going to be going into human services. He is currently working on getting all the needed credits to become a paramedic and he also wants to get a certificate in early childhood education. He is currently a lifeguard. He loves working with children with additional needs. He wants to change the world a little at a time.

#7 You’re empathetic and compassionate.

I kind of already covered this in sign #5. But ya even if you aren’t an empath you will likely be an empathetic and compassionate person. You feel things so intensely that sometimes it even hurts. This high level of empathy can also cause depression and anxiety. I don’t know if it still affects him to this day but these were definitely issues he was dealing with when he was younger.

#8 You’re a leader

You may find you have a hard time working in teams or for other people. My brother has always been someone who questions authority. He never just gives respect to someone simply because they are of authority. You have to earn that from him and it isn’t easy. He definitely enjoys being in charge of himself.

#9 You have a loner personality

You find it difficult to be around too many people at once and often prefer to spend your time alone. My brother growing up was always alone in his room. He never wanted to be around any of us and was always much happier doing his own thing.

#10 You struggle with boredom

You tend to struggle with routine and structure. Because of this and your inability to stay focused you may have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. My brother has been diagnosed since he was in about grade 2. Boredom is definitely something he struggles with. It has been more obviously since he has moved from our hometown.

#11 You are fiery tempered

You are likely quick to anger. There is likely a mix of reasons to this. Your empathy, being strong willed, being a truth seeker, and not conforming to society or authority. Anger issues is something my brother has struggled with all his life. I’ve never really understood why but maybe this is the reason.

Tarot Series~Major Acrana Card 8: Strength

aa531c5f65208b68814197e79a8ed35d.jpg

When pulled upright this card is about inner strength and fortitude during danger and distress. Even when everything seems to be going wrong you seem to remain calm and strong. It also talks of compassion and how you always make times for others even when if it means pushing your own needs to the side. You are patient and can accomplish anything you set your mind to. You are resilient and fearless which will help you in the long run and will help you speak your mind when you need to. As a reward for your compassion you will be given stability either presently or in the near future.

When pulled in reverse this card is about experiencing an intense anger or fear in your life (if not presently then in the near future). You are lacking the characteristics this card is normally about and therefore may be experiencing fear, along with a lack of conviction and confidence in yourself. You may have forgotten your passions and what you love. This card may also say you are experiencing depression and that you may end up withdrawing yourself because of it. You need to gain confidence in order to get your inner-strength.

Here is a tarot spread that focuses on the strength card. First I would remove the strength card and meditate with it asking yourself what your strengths are. Then I would shuffle and pull the cards in the method you see fit.

strengthspread

Card 1: This card represents your greatest strength, which can be something of which you are quite conscious.

Cards 2 and 3: These cards are other strengths you have, that maybe you are not taking into account. All of the first three cards represent strong roots, things you can draw on, that will nourish and support you and form a good base.

Card 4: This represents a possible weakness, an area that perhaps needs some shoring up, that could be strengthened.

Card 5: This card represents an area where flexibility is needed, an issue or attitude or situation where you need to bend and let things flow, where a different kind of strength is needed.
