You Are Worthy

Eight of Wands, Nine of Swords, Nine of Cups reversed - Revelations Tarot

Worrying about what others are thinking of you will only impede your progress.  Your self-worth is determined by you, not by the thoughts of others.

"Self worth comes from one thing -- thinking that you are worthy."
~Wayne Dyer

Ready, Set, Action!

Justice, Five of Pentacles reversed, Ace of Swords reversed - Revelations Tarot

Enough thinking about how to get out of that rut.  Act now, and you will be rewarded for your efforts.

"Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all."
~Norman Vincent Peale

The Battle

Page of Pentacles, The Devil, Seven of Wands

The biggest battle you will face in making your dreams come true is escaping the prison of your own negative thinking.

"Do not allow negative thoughts to enter your mind for they are the weeds that strangle confidence."
~Bruce Lee

For the last few days I've been pulling three cards and trying to interpret them with a one or two sentence message.  It's not as easy to do as I thought it would be. I've liked the reads I've come up with so far, but I have to say, the cards I pulled today have me rather stumped.   I'll share two interpretations that I came up with, but I'm not at all satisfied with either.  Please share what you see!

Six of Swords, Four of Pentacles, The Hermit - The Gilded Tarot

You won't find the peace you are looking for by running from your problems or hoarding your resources.  Look inside.  You had the answer all along.


Start saving your pennies for that trip you've been dreaming of and longing to take.

What do you think?

Thoughts Matter

Five of Pentacles, Knight of Wands, Nine of Pentacles - The Gilded Tarot

 Be the hero of your story.  Start by choosing the right thoughts.

“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

Nine of Swords, Ten of Pentacles, Ace of Pentacles - The Gilded Tarot

Don't let fear block the gifts the Universe is giving you.  Accept those gifts with gratitude, share them with others and watch a river of abundance flow from you to others and back to you again.

"Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart."   Sarah Ban Breathnach

Breaking Up Is Hard to Do

Recently I needed to end a friendship, and I'm still spending so much of my time thinking about it, even though I know it was the right decision.  I decided to pull some cards for some insight, and chose to use a spread I found at Biddy Tarot.

Release and Let Go
  1. What am I feeling right now?
  2. Why am I feeling it so strong?
  3. How can I release this feeling?
  4. What is the feeling transforming into?
  5. How can I rise above?
  6. What is my new beginning?
  7. What have I learned?
Joie De Vivre Tarot
The Five of Swords speaks to the sense of loss that I am feeling, and the tension, hostility and conflict which ultimately led to my decision in the first place.  Although I know that moving on was necessary those feelings linger still.

Why am I feeling it so strongly?  Death.  Well, because it was a huge and transformational change, Sweetheart.  You can't expect to end a friendship of fifteen years and shrug it off like nothing happened. 

The Six of Cups tells me that I should surround myself with the people and things in my life that I love.  It's a good time to count my blessings. 

The Empress provides so much hope.  This feeling of loss and conflict will transform into a feeling of abundance (perhaps by reflecting on those blessings alluded to in the Six of Cups) and creativity.  I think I will be birthing my very self, my true self.

When I'm feeling dragged down again by these feelings, the Three of Wands tells me to remember those plans I have, and I do have many that are already underway.  I have so many wonderful things to look forward to this year.  I'm making dreams of mine come true.  I need to put my energy into my own life, and not spend anymore time lamenting what is past.

The King of Wands advises me to not sit in the planning stages of those wonderful things to come, but to use this new found energy and vision to charge ahead and make that vision a reality.

What have I learned?  The Ace of Cups.  Yeah.  I've learned to let myself feel what I feel and to trust my feelings.  Sometimes, and with some people I put my instincts on hold because I don't want to believe what they are telling me.  I've been guilty of violating myself to please someone else, and what I've learned is, violating myself is just as bad as hurting someone else.  I am the only one who can know what I feel.  I need to trust me.
