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.

Today’s Journey Tarot Symbolism from “Today’s Journey Tarot, A Traveler’s Guide” Father of Earth

The Father of Earth shows a rancher standing at the top of a long stone staircase looking out over all he owns. There are snow covered mountains, trees, and horse barns. Horses are making their way to the pasture. His hands are on his hips.  He wears green and blue with cowboy boots and spurs. The Father of Earth has built his domain through his own hard work and sacrifice. His pose suggests he is well satisfied with what he sees. He takes what the Earth has to offer but gives back equally so there is never a shortage of resources. Like the mountains, what he has built will endure for generations. This card shows how we cultivate abundance in our lives. Respect the source, the Earth, and never take more than needed or take by unscrupulous means. Then replace what was taken by giving back in equal share. This ensures stability, endurance, and continued growth. The staircase represents his climb to the top. Snow represents the purity of his intent. He wears green to signify his connection to the Earth and prosperity. Blue suggests he finds peace in what he does. Spurs represent the motivation to prosper.

Today’s Journey Tarot Symbolism from “Today’s Journey Tarot, A Traveler’s Guide” Five of Earth

The Five of Earth shows a woman sitting in front of a stone monument. She is obviously grieving. A white feather floats down from the sky behind her. She sits on a stone bench, wearing all black. The sky is gray and the grass and bushes are only partially green. We are often blinded by grief. Our lives are subject to loss. We lose people, jobs, relationships, animal friends, homes, favorite possessions, and on and on. A period of grief is healing and necessary but often we have difficulty letting go because we remain focused on what we have lost. The imposing stone monument is cold, hard, and unchanging. She has her back to the feather which represents the promise of hope, lightness, and freedom. We will never regain what we’ve lost but there is a new beginning if we reach out for it. Black is a symbol of her grief. The gray sky is limitation and the partially green grass, stagnated growth.

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

The Six of Air shows a family packed in their vehicle and heading down the road. Today’s Journey is the life we lead every day. Over and over again we pack up and move on. Sometimes the move is a monumental and life changing leap of faith and sometimes it is as simple as throwing out an old pair of shoes. Whatever is not working can be left behind and we can start over. It is not as easy as it sounds, but the opportunity always exists even if we cannot see it or are afraid of it. The geese leading the way suggest it is always better to follow our instincts. We know when it is time to make a move and it is a waste of energy to postpone or worry about it. The grass and trees express the new growth that comes with change. The clear sky ahead assures they are moving in the right direction. The paper airplane the child holds symbolizes the playfulness of freedom. Renewal is indicated by the license plate. The car is positive thought manifested.

Today’s Journey Tarot Symbolism from “Today’s Journey Tarot, A Traveler’s Guide” Child of Water

The Child of Water shows a young boy standing in tall grass reaching up with his hand to catch a raindrop. There is a purple guitar case slung over his back displaying the yin/yang symbol, a dolphin and a rose. He wears blue. He reaches out to the raindrop to capture his budding emotional nature. This child has an awakening desire to make music. The yin/yang symbol is the balance this expression will bring into his life. Dolphins are sensitive and gentle creatures and a rose symbolizes the subconscious mind. The purple case is the promise of mastery. Without the sensitive souls willing to share their imaginations with the world it would be a bleak and stark place to live.

Today’s Journey Tarot Two of Fire – Two of Wands

The Two of Wands from the Rider/Waite/Smith deck shows a richly dressed man holding a globe as he looks out to sea. It is a card of attainment of goals, achievement and success. The symbolism here is difficult to discern unless you are familiar with the meanings of the colors, the globe, the crisscrossed roses and lilies, etc. To modernize this concept in the Two of Fire, Expanding Dimensions, the authors of Today’s Journey Tarot chose to depict a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new lighting business. The lighting emphasizes the fire element of the card – the energy behind the success. Since this is the beginning of the business, the possibilities for future success are just beginning.
