Tarot Meditations – Key 4 Law (The Emperor)

The Universe is in Divine order. Acceptance of this is the beginning of freedom, struggling against it is ineffective and changes nothing.

Contemplate: Acceptance

Ask Yourself: What am I resisting that I cannot change?

Tell Yourself: I trust that everything is as it should be.

Know: The only thing you can change is yourself.

ARIES – It is never too late to make changes. If something is not working for you and in fact may be negative for you, change it. You are not doomed to stay in it, by anyone but yourself.

TAURUS – Speak up and speak out for what you believe is right. You have been silent too long because of feared consequences. There will always be consequences to work through. That’s life.

GEMINI – Someone may be trying to sabotage what you are trying to accomplish. The closer you get to your goal, the stronger their influence. Know what you want and let nothing stop you.

CANCER – Allow yourself to open up to something new. Too much focus on ourselves, makes us miserable. Use you considerable talents to help others and your problems disappear.

LEO – Sometimes it is important to trust your own instincts even when they seem to be just the opposite of what everyone else is telling you. You are the one who has to live with the results.

VIRGO – Use what you’ve learned to take you in the right direction. What you are feeling is only a lack of confidence. Allow the Universe to work its magic and take advantage of its offerings.

LIBRA – Rely on friends who are willing to be supportive no matter what. One of these friends may step forward with the right answer for you, since you can’t seem to find it on your own.

SCORPIO – There could be some sort of new job in the making. If not your actual work, another opportunity may come forward. It seems like something that is more like play than work.

SAGITTARIUS – Be patient. Life has to sort out this and that before what you want can manifest. Use this time to rest, study, and grow and you will be ready for what lies ahead.

CAPRICORN – When we give to others, it should be done without expectations of anything in return. This rule is absolute. It is always worth it and the pay back we never expected is remarkable.

AQUARIUS – Your thoughts are running all over the place. First one thing and then another. Find a quiet time to let your mind ease and let go. Nurture yourself with relaxation.

PISCES – Should be a very good month. A lot of successful situations dominate your time. They are filled with good friends and good times. Accept what is given you.

Today’s Journey Tarot Symbolism from “Today’s Journey Tarot, A Traveler’s Guide” Youth of Air

The Youth of Air shows a young woman just lifting off of a rock cliff in a hang glider. She is wearing a yellow jump suit. The glider is white. The sky behind her is blue. Her yellow suit indicates the boldness of thought which guides her. She utilizes air (her intellect) to sustain and support her. The white glider represents innocence. Her lack of experience does not deter her. The sky is her limit.

ARIES – Be careful not to isolate yourself too much this month. There is a tendency to withdrawal. You need companionship and the stimulation that others bring to get you through a low period quickly.

TAURUS – A lot of nurturing is required of you this month. Give all you can, but do not get drawn into someone else’s drama. Stay positive and suggest positive activities and solutions. Then take time out for your own needs.

GEMINI– Try to find a new way to cope with problems other than worrying about them. Worrying wastes your time and energy. Be creative. Put them (mentally) in a box and take them out one by one to be dealt with. Don’t peek into the box!

CANCER – Burning the candle at both ends will not create more light. The candle just burns out quickly and energy has been wasted, leaving you disappointed. Slow down. Savor each moment. There’s so much pleasure in simple things.

LEO – Be open minded this month. Try to see another point of view. It’s okay if you don’t agree or don’t change your mind, but it seems important to allow someone else their say. You may need this information another time.

VIRGO – Giving to others is the best way to distract you from your own problems. Look for ways to be helpful. Make it your project this month. It will positively transform your life and somehow create new opportunities in every area.

LIBRA – It is important to remember that the truth always come out. Try as we might, we just aren’t creatures who can keep secrets and the cost of trying to is much too high.  It would be best to just be truthful in the first place.

SCORPIO – Turn disappointments into opportunities. They are actually guides toward the way you should proceed. There is a lot to be learned from so called failure. Meditate on the events and what you’ve learned from them.

SAGITTARIUS – If you want to shed light onto a subject, it pays to go to an expert. Consult with someone who can give you the answers you need. Waiting for the answers to drop into your lap is not very efficient, since it is not likely to happen.

CAPRICORN – Time to make a choice. Either way provides security but you may want to consider the challenges (both good and bad) to your life and what you really want. This looks like an opportunity to really shake things up.

AQUARIUS – Very positive cards for this month. Success and moving forward to a new adventure is the theme. Go with the flow and see where it might lead. It looks like others will be going along with you. You are the leader in this adventure.

PISCES – Keep working toward your goals. You may not see the growth but you have made a lot of progress. Keep reminding yourself of what you have accomplished and how much better things are now than they used to be. Be your own cheerleader!

Today’s Journey Tarot Symbolism from “Today’s Journey Tarot, A Traveler’s Guide” Nine of Air

The Nine of Air shows a woman at her kitchen table, obviously distraught over the pile of bills stretched out in front of her. A checkbook lays closed on the table. Her large coffee cup is empty and her ashtray is full. The kitchen is dark and she is wearing a yellow housecoat. The refrigerator and counter top are chartreuse. There is a caged gray cockatiel next to her. Worry is a useless emotion that serves no purpose. It eats up our energy and fills our mind with ineffectual thoughts that do not offer solutions. We worry about everything, whether it is an actual situation in our lives or the thousands of what ifs that plagues us every day. We become trapped by these thoughts just as the bird is imprisoned by its cage. The coffee cup and ashtray show she’s been here a long time trying to figure out what to do. She can’t see a solution to her troubles. The bills spread before her signify the problems keeping her awake. Chartreuse represents the mind’s interference with growth.

ARIES – Old traditions may fade away this month. It is time to start new ones. Look for new ways to do things, new people to be with, and new places to go. Time once again to shake things up a bit.

TAURUS – Keep on dreaming. Your dreams are about to materialize. Now is not the time to let them go, but a time for faith in yourself and all your effort.

GEMINI– Your mind is a remarkable tool. Use it this month to come up with new ideas and projects or ways to finish old ones. There is a need for completion and control in your life.

CANCER – Be confident in your ability to make a decision. Once you have all the facts, there is no doubt you will make the right one. It might not be a good time to let others strongly influence you. You know what to do.

LEO – This month may start out a bit confusing or disorganized, but by the middle you should feel back in control. Don’t try to fight the confusion. Just let it pass on by. It is just one of those things.

VIRGO – This may be a period of learning about yourself. Try not to get too serious about it. If you see mistakes, correct them without being harsh on yourself. You can’t learn when you are constantly being criticized.

LIBRA – No matter what you manifest in your life, there are always challenges to go with it. Nothing is perfect – not relationships, jobs, places to live or anything else. Expect a few bumps in the road and you can sail right through them.

SCORPIO – Being disappointed only means things didn’t turn out like you expected. It is no reflection on you or your abilities. Think it through and you will see ways to make it work – next time.

SAGITTARIUS – Time to refresh and rest. Do not plan too much this month. It should be a laid back, summer recharge rather than a go, go, rush, rush race to the finish. Your energy will return when it’s needed.

CAPRICORN – Do not get discouraged. The answer is always right in front of you. When the time is right, you will be able to see it. Until then, practice being aware – noticing things around you. It might speed up the process a little.

AQUARIUS – You can’t control someone else’s emotions. The best you can do is accept what is happening and try not to agitate the situation further. It will blow over if it is not encouraged by you.

PISCES – You may need to do some more research to be successful. There is always something new to learn. It is also a boost to your confidence. The more you know, the more you are prepared to face any challenge.
