Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Two of Pentacles

download (5)

When pulled upright this card is about balance. It seems like right now money may be a bit tight but you’ve found a way to balance it out. However you are teetering the edge and one wrong financial decision could ruin that balance. This balance could also be about trying to keep two aspects of your life in balance. It could be anything, your job, school, money, health, love, etc. Regardless this card is saying there are two aspects that you are extremely concerned about. You need to step back from the situation and gain a better perspective. Multitasking seems likes the most efficient course of action but in reality it will just make the situation worse. Take the time to really focus on what it is you’re concerned about. When it comes to the subject of love this card is suggesting that you don’t have the time or energy needed to invest in your partner to make them happy. Your relationship with your partner should be at the top of your priority list but given the stress you’ve been in by keeping everything in balance they have been put to the side a bit. When it comes to your finances this card is saying you need to make sure you are completely aware of the state it is in. Take this time to really watch what you’re spending and secure a steady stream of income so you can make a good foundation for your future. And when it comes to your health this card is reminding you to do some self care. When you have a lot of responsibilities it is easy to stop considering your own needs and wants  but you need to try and find a balance.

When pulled in reverse this card is saying you have too many things you’re trying to do in your life right now. Give yourself a little responsibility free break to de-stress. When it comes to work getting this card in reverse can be a good sign. Try not to commit yourself to a lot of things as it will likely overwhelm you. When it comes to finances this card can suggest that you might be overspending. You really need to think about your income and where it is all being spent as overspending can cause issues in the future.

Here is a tarot spread to help you achieve balance in your life. First I would take the card out and meditate on it thinking about what aspect(s) of your life could use some more balance. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Four of Swords

779e26c17a66ca20ad0465224cef46c5

When pulled upright it is saying that it is time for your to retreat. The three of swords was a very intense card talking about a lot of grief and suffering. This four of swords is telling you to step back from these issues and rest. You may be withdrawing consciously or maybe you just have no choice from sheer exhaustion. You are still surrounded by reminders of your grief but in order to be able to return your everyday life you need to take some time to recoup and rest. There is always that slight chance that there is more loss to experience and you should rest now while you have the chance. It would be really beneficial if you went somewhere private, be it the cottage, a little trip somewhere warm, or maybe the beach and regain your strength and clarity. It is time to go over your priorities and make sure you’re approaching everything the way you want to be/should be. This card is about getting ready new challenges. You are experiencing crisis after crisis and it is wiping you out. You will only be able to face the next challenge after you’ve recouped some. 

When pulled in reverse this card is about feeling restless. Your heart is ready to relax but your brain is not. You are feeling that there is a lot depending on you. Continuing on this path that you’re on is not a good idea and could affect your health. You can keep fighting but you can only endure so much. You have to know your own strength and know when to back out. Letting yourself rest and refresh can be a very important measure of self-love. You can try to push ahead anyway but it will only make things difficult for you long term. 

Here is a tarot spread to help you relax and rest. First I would take out the four of swords and meditate with it thinking about all the conflict that’s been going on and how tired you are. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Weekly Tarot Reading: Let Your Soul Shine (Summer Solstice spread)

Hi everyone! I thought since Friday is going to be Litha we would do a little tarot spread that embodies the holiday. This spread is going to give you some insight on how you can be the best you you can be this summer.

The Tarot Spread

I actually enjoyed this spread so much that I was compelled to do it for my partner too. I have pulled the cards already but am writing this before I get the chance to really analyze the cards and get his message. I’m very excited.

img_20190618_192812
These are the cards I pulled for myself

Card 1: You as you are now (knight of cups reversed)

This card essentially was telling me that I allow my emotions to control my life more than I should. That I am overly jealous, emotional, and/or moody. I also jump to conclusions too fast.

I can definitely say that all of the above is true and it is something I really am trying to work on but I am not sure how honestly.

Card 2: What’s keeping you from being your best? (Ace of wands reversed)

This card talks a lot about going through trials and tribulations. That I feel I have no direction which is causing a lack of inspiration and motivation. Essentially I am just in a slump. I don’t seem to be excited to reach my goals and I am feeling weighed down by current commitments and responsibilities.

As you all know my life has just been bonkers lately and it still hasn’t stopped being bonkers. More and more things keep coming up. So that part seems pretty true. My lack of inspiration and motivation is actually so extreme that is seems to cause problems in my relationship with my partner. Honestly it is a mental health issue that I know needs fixed but once again I don’t know how. As for feeling weighed down by commitments and responsibilities it is a double edged sword. I work all day, then I come home and I am either, editing videos, uploading videos, or writing blog posts. I do a lot and it is super exhausting. However I am so proud of myself and what I have accomplished with this blog and my channel in such a short amount of time and I really don’t what to stop. So I need to learn how to balance out my schedule better.

Card 3: How to overcome it (The lovers)

Essentially this card to me was telling me to let my partner take care of me more. Sure I tell him what is upsetting me and I talk to him about stuff. But I very rarely let him see me breakdown. And especially these last 2-3 months I’ve totally broken down a lot and he’s seen me do that maybe once or twice. I don’t like to let him see me a mess or anyone else for that matter. However this card serves as a reminder to me that he can handle the mess that is me. And by me not letting him fulling in to what I am experiencing emotionally I am hindering myself.

Card 4: How you can work towards your goals (Ten of Pentacles)

I am very bad at making long term goals. I like immediate satisfaction and anything that doesn’t provide that I often drop. That is one reason why my partner is so surprised that I am still writing this blog. I have not become a superstar overnight and am still nowhere close to achieving that stardom. To go along with that most of my goals that I have for my blog and my channel are short term goals since I do enjoy that instant gratification. For instance I made a goal for the month of June to get 50 subscribers on my youtube channel. When I made this goal I already had 49 subscribers. I now have 53 subscribers which is obviously surpassed my very easy goals. I get nervous to make long term goals as I am afraid I will never accomplish them and in the end let myself (and possibly others) down. However this card is telling me I need to do just that. More of my goals will be met if I actually set those long term goals I fear.

Card 5: How you can care for yourself (Two of Swords reversed)

I have this tendency of getting into these stalemate like situations where I just need to make a choice but neither seem good so I just don’t chose. I like to think that if I pretend the issue doesn’t exist that it’ll go away. Newsflash! The situation doesn’t go away. Surprising right? This card is telling me to simply start making choices so my stress can go away.

Card 6: How you can care for others (Seven of wands reversed)

As I kinda said early when talking about my partner, I need to start letting my walls down. I tend to come across as aggressive when I am protecting myself and it damages my relationships with others. This card seems to be saying once I take care of myself, let myself be more vulnerable and learn to protect myself less aggressively, caring for others should fall into place naturally.

Card 7: How you can care for the world (Four of Pentacles)

This card is one I had a hard time interpreting today. From what I could gather it is reminding me not to become to materialistic. It also seems to be saying that in order to care for the world I need to take more risks.
