Tarot Series~Major Arcana Card 9: The Hermit

98bd390a2c933e6805e17af6ff1e31d7

When pulled upright this card is about seeking knowledge from within. You are currently contemplating your need to be alone. Don’t be afraid to take the chance to reflect as it can really clear your mind of all the everyday clutter. It may also be saying when you take action make sure it is authentic and in line with your true self. This card can also suggest that someone is going to enter your life and they will take on the role of a mentor. I feel also that when talking about love it can suggest that it may be best for you to be single right now or at least take some time for yourself so you can figure out who you are without the distractions of others.

When pulled in reverse this card is about, despite wanting to be alone you may be in a situation where being alone may be harmful to yourself and others. Although it is important to self reflect, don’t get lost inside your head for it may drive you mad. Don’t forget those around you. When talking about work this card in reverse means you are prepared to get to the bottom of something that has been troubling you for a while. The time for reflection is done and you are now ready to act.

This is a tarot spread that focuses on the hermit. I would recommend taking the hermit card out of your deck and meditate on it while thinking of yourself all alone. Then shuffle and pull the cards as you see fit.

Card 1: This card represents you in solitude, your true self. This is your quietest and most centered self, undistracted and relaxed. Can also represent things that help you to center, or reasons why you find you are not centered.

Cards 2 and 3: These represent your path, where you have been, and which direction you are heading. Which is which? Do you want to be on this path?

Card 4: This is your inner light, your potential, what you can accomplish when you are centered, or that which obscures it, and keeps it from shining.

Weekly Tarot Spread: Balancing and Cleansing the Solar Plexus Chakra

So today we are doing a reading on our solar plexus chakras. The last 2 weeks we did the root chakra and the sacral chakra. All have been really great readings and I’m just as happy with this one!

Spread I used

My favourite part of all three of these chakra spreads is how uplifting the final pulled card is. All of the cards speak and beautiful results that I am so excited to experience.

Cards I pulled

Card to represent of solar plexus chakra: Three of Swords

My solar plexus chakra gets left out in the open, unguarded, unbalanced, ungrounded. This leaves it open to attack. The vulnerability of my solar plexus chakra has left me hurt physically, mentally, and spiritually. It’s main damage being mentally.

How I can better use my logic: Eight of wands

I am going to have rapid action and quick decisions coming up. I will need to use my logic and creativity together to achieve the best results.

A way I can be more proactive: Nine of Cups Reversed

I need to think more carefully about what I really want from life. I also need to focus on my relationships with family, friends, and the community. Once I find my inner joy and build these relationships I will naturally become more proactive.

Good way to balance this chakra: Two of Cups

I need to find trust in my relationships with the divine and my partner. For my partner will fill my empty cup and the goddess will walk my path along with me.

Result of balancing this chakra: The Ace of Swords

When I balance this chakra I will have a breakthrough. I’ll find the truth and see the world from a whole new view. This will open up so many possibilities and opportunities for me.

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.

Weekly Tarot Spread: Balancing and Clearing the Sacral Chakra

So last week I did the reading on my root chakra and today I did my reading for my sacral chakra. If you haven’t checked out the reading for my root chakra then I’ll firstly say, you should check it out. Also, I am doing the chakra readings as a follow up to me learning my reiki 1 and 2 placements.

Tarot spread I used

One thing I have noticed is the more and more I do the readings, the more and more I am able to intuitively read the cards. My only struggle I’m having is cards that don’t show up often for me in readings and when they are reversed. I’m getting better though and I’m so excited about it!

What I pulled

Card to represent my sacral ckakra: Eight of Swords

My sacral chakra is blocked. I have swords all around me but I can’t reach due to being tied up. This all is to say I have the tools to open my sacral chakra but I’ve been unable to find and grasp them. Due to the card being a sword the reason I can’t reach the tools seems to be a mental issue rather than not being able to physically get the tools.

How to better channel my creative energy: Death

Like last week to reach my full potential I need to let the old me (the me that doesn’t doesn’t believe in herself and is too caught up in what others think) die and birth a new me. A me with confidence and happiness. When I do this I will find the creative energy I lack

Practical way I can deepen my relationships: Knight of Pentacles Reversed

When in reverse this card is about routine, being bored, and needing a change in scenery. This means for me that I can deepen my relationships by being spontaneous and changing things up. I’m lacking a social life because I’m so focused on school or work.

A good way for me to balance this chakra: Three of Wands reversed

The three of wands talks about going on a personal journey but not receiving the achievements you were hoping for due to delays or road blocks, But instead of giving up I need to keep working on my self journey because eventually I will get there and when I do, my sacral chakra will be balanced.

Result of balancing this chakra: The World

This card talks of a great unity and wholeness. It symbolizes the moment the inner and outer worlds (self and other) become a single entity. It talks about reaching enlightenment and all efforts are paying off. This is saying when my sacral chakra opens I will find enlightenment and I will feel complete and whole.

Lastly, as we now major arcana cards represent great importance which means creativity and the results of my sacral chakra being balanced are most important and these two cards are both directly effecting the state of my sacral chakra in this moment.

Tarot Series~Major Arcana Card 7: The Chariot

c0d5f37614529af20ebb81432ca0c3cb

When pulled upright the Chariot is about overcoming challenges and being victorious through maintaining control of your surroundings. You need to be strong and have willpower to be victorious and achieve your goals. You must maintain focus, confidence, and determination through your journey in life. If you have a plan you are unsure of pursue it with a structured approach. In your drive to reach your goal you may realize you are becoming competitive or aggressive.  These are natural aspects of human nature and can be good to help you reach your goals but you must make sure it keep it under control so it doesn’t hinder you moving forward.

When pulled in reverse the Chariot is about excessive aggression and/or a lack of willpower. It can mean that you lack drive, determination, and ambition or the opposite, that you are becoming overly obsessed with your goals. This card can also be about a lack of control or direction in your life. You are letting yourself be tossed around and are just taking the punches. This is a time to remember to tie any loose ends and to take charge of your destiny.

Here is a tarot spread that focuses on The Chariot Card. First I would take the Chariot out of the deck and meditate on the goal you want help with right now. Then I would shuffle the cards and pull them using the method you see as best.

chariotspread

Card 1: This card represents you and your personality, which dictates what kinds of risks you usually take, whether you are cautious or careless, and affects how high you usually set your goals. You are perfectly capable of achieving more, if you so desire, but be aware that the effort may be greater, or that some changes in your current mode of thinking may be required.

Card 2: This card represents your goal, what you are focusing on, or an aspect of that goal you hadn’t considered. Is this really what you want?

Cards 3, 4 and 5: These cards are the things you have, resources upon which to draw, things or people that can help. Also things that you will need to achieve your goal.

Cards 6 and 7: These represent a tempered version of the goal, a reality check. They represent what is possible, and a concrete way to make it happen, a step to the goal. Can be problems that will be met and need to be overcome, or things to watch out for and prepare for.

When you have read all the cards, look at them all together. Are the steps to your goal in order? Lay them out so that they are, from you to your goal. Maybe you find the goal itself is not in the right place. Rearrange them so they make sense to you, not necessarily in a straight line, but however it takes to get you there.
