The Star

IMG_6404After the storm of the Tower, comes the healing power of the Star.

Feel the soothing presence of this card. It comes as a balm for your wounds. Everything will be okay.

The Star is the card that makes wishes come true, if you hold your wish in your heart. It is there to guide you, to tell you there is a good outcome to what you have been going through.

If you are asking a yes/no question, the Star answers with a resounding yes. Open yourself up to opportunities.  Let things happen. Make things happen.

For me, this is a card of self-compassion. It is there to remind us that we can be fragile. We deserve the kindness we usually save for others.

I am constantly in awe of the world. The good and the bad. The Star is there to comfort me, to tell me that even though it doesn’t always feel like it, there is hope.

The Tower

IMG_6403This does not bode well. The Tower doesn’t mess around. Yikes!

An event outside of yourself is going to hit hard. Or an event inside of yourself will be the wake up call that you need.

I love this card, because it means that things are finally moving. No more stagnation, doubt, waiting. Things are really happening now.

If it is outside yourself, it will be a big shift in your life. Your work, your family, anything that has been seemingly safe is going to change. This could be a very welcomed change if you have been stuck in a stage of life.

Usually though, this card is a personal wake up call.  You’ve neglected part of yourself and now it’s time to pick up the pieces. It’s too late to back up now.

This can be a scary card as we don’t usually like change very much. But it’s also an opportunity to burn it all down and start again. A catharsis. Ready or not, the Tower is there to make sure you get the message.

The Devil

IMG_6402The Devil asks: What has you chained down? What is keeping you from being yourself?

The Devil is about doubts, self-imposed limitations, addictions. When this card appears, it’s time to do some self-examination. What are you attached to so much that you are missing everything else in your life?

Addictions could be your phone, alcohol, work, sex, shopping, not stopping, anything that keeps you from you. What are you doing to avoid the void?

We can get so caught up in what is going on around us, that we forget to make time for ourselves. When this card is present, it tells you it’s time. It’s time to stop the nonsense and look at what is there inside you.

Time to accept what is there. Is it pain? Self-doubt? Guilt? Bad memories?

Turn off the automatic pilot. Sit down. Breathe. Write down what is really going on.

Where can you spend time to replenish yourself? What actions can you take to feel what it is to be you? What do you like to do just because it feels like you?

You have a great opportunity to check in with yourself. Take that step. Unplug. Be still.
