Daily Tarot Reflections Death

tarot reflections death tarot cardAlthough today’s card is actually widely feared and misunderstood – I find it to be one of my personal favorites. The infamous “Death” card with the hooded reaper seems ominous – but in fact it speaks of transition rather than finality or tragedy. Think of times in your life where an ending led to a fresh start that dramatically improved your life.

This card often comes up for renewal after a challenge or a new beginning after something ends.

This is the most feared and most widely misunderstood card in a Tarot Deck. The Death card does indicate a time of great changes being present. It also indicates leaving the past behind to start fresh, or to find new opportunities designed to further you in a different direction. It speaks of transition rather than final endings.

When this card comes up, it always indicates a period of progress. Sometimes this process can be painful at first. It’s hard to leave behind what we have come to know, but without change, growth wouldn’t be possible. In order to fly, a newly formed butterfly must struggle to break free from its cocoon. The struggle strengthens its wings. Without that struggle, the wings shrivel and the butterfly dies without ever experiencing the freedom of flight.

Sometimes we remain in “comfort zones” simply because they are familiar, although they offer us no place to stretch our wings. Sometimes life has a way of shaking things up when we need to get moving. The Death card speaks of these types of changes.

The Phoenix bird is a good way to view this card. Be like this legendary bird and rise up out of your own ashes to begin again. Regeneration and a new way of life are possible, look for the hidden opportunities. Our biggest challenges give birth to our greatest achievements because we find out what we are really made of.

Now is a good time to restore your faith in God/The Universe, and yourself. Embrace change because it is inevitable and with it comes opportunity; without it comes a lack of true living – or “death”.

Questions for Reflection

What do I need to sacrifice to reach my fullest potential?
Has resisting change been holding me back?
How can I best to adapt to current changes to make the most of the situation?

We often hear of “fear of failure” but what many of us aren’t aware of is a “fear of success”. With success comes accountability. When this card comes up we are being challenged to be a leader, to take control of the reigns and guide our own destiny. No time to blame external circumstances and other people for holding us back, we are the captain of our own ship.

This king is all about business, accountability and remaining focused on long-term goals as well as the small steps taken daily to achieve results. Empower yourself to really go after your goals. Don’t be reticent when it comes to following your dreams. With desire has to come the efforts to manifest results.

Pessimism and belief that the best “can’t happen to me” can result in self-fulfilling prophecy. Face fears of success as well as fear of failure. Ask yourself “If I could have all I truly wanted what would that be?”

Patience and persistence are rewarded. Make your efforts count. When this card comes up you will notice you either receive rewards or consequences depending upon your actions and attitude. Consider how your actions, or lack thereof, today will impact your future in the long run.

Questions for Reflection

Am I managing my time and resources effectively?
How are my recent actions likely to impact my future a year from now? 5 years from now?
Do I need to reassess my goals or develop new/better habits long-term?

Tarot Inspirations King of Cups

Tarot Inspirations King of CupsThe King and Queen cards always speak of leadership, positive personal expression, but also working for the good of all around you. This particular King represents those who have deep emotional lives, sometimes complex/conflicting emotions that may need to be balanced so that more objective choices can be made.

Tarot Reflections The Two of Pentacles

Tarot Reflections Two of Pentacles

Tarot Reflections Two of PentaclesToday’s card is a two and one of the main themes of any “two” card is choice and balance. Have you ever been facing a difficult choice where you had to consider seemingly opposing choices?  Or have you ever had to carefully weigh all of your options to ensure that you are making a balanced decision? Our choices rarely affect only ourselves so weighing your choices as the fellow in this card is doing makes perfect sense.

Two’s in and of themselves in Tarot speak of such decisions where you have to weigh what is best for your overall well-being long term – and sometimes those choices are tough and not so simple as they would seem on the surface. Sometimes they require compromise and/or a willingness to accept some risk and take a chance.

Choice and change, however, are always what lead to new experience and growth! This card like all two’s speak of decisions to be made/choice and of balance.

This particular card speaks of balancing one’s personal and spiritual needs with the needs of the material realm. It often comes up around those contemplating career changes or concerns and says to take a balanced approach in this area as well. Sometimes we focus our goals solely on financial gain and as a result, we end up in careers that don’t challenge or inspire us enough personally. The opposite applies, sometimes we have to do what is “practical” in order to meet our physical needs, however, there is still a need to balance those duties/obligations with time spent on yourself.

In regards to choices, this two tells you to make a well-balanced decision. In this card, the man is weighing the two coins, balancing them back and forth in his hands. They are surrounded by the infinity loop. This card reminds us that often our choices have long-term and even lifetime implications, so carefully consider and make balanced decisions.
