Spiritual Tarot & Guidance (23rd ~ 29th November 2020)
The cards for this week are: The Devil, The 8 of Pentacles, The King of Pentacles and The Tower
Hello everyone as always I hope this weeks reading finds you safe and well!
“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.”~ August Wilson ~
The quote above signifies the arrival of the first card in the Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading for this week ~ The Devil.
The Devil card for those who are new to tarot can be quite an unsettling/unnerving site, but it isn’t as bad as it seems. It really speaks of the need, as the quote above says, to look at those parts of ourselves that we keep hidden, or that are buried in our subconscious mind. These are based on what we have been taught or have learned from others that don’t really serve us or have purpose in our lives.
The second card drawn as always with the help, support and guidance of the spirit world was ~ The 8 of Pentacles.
The 8 of Pentacles signifies the need to either learn new skills or build upon and master the skills that you may already have. It is the card of apprenticeship and mastery. It reminds us that we need to be both diligent and hardworking and apply ourselves FULLY to the tasks at hand.
The third card drawn for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading was ~ The King of Pentacles
So we have had The 8 of Pentacles and now coming along in support is The King of Pentacles. The King has achieved his success through hard work, diligence, application and self-belief. He represents what can be achieved by following the advice given in The 8 of Pentacles. He is asking you to maintain your self discipline and build up your self confidence. You are asked to look towards the future and plan with confidence, but keep the vison and the plans that you have, as simple and practical as you can.
Our last card for this week represents the overall energy for the week and is ~ The Tower
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”~ Socrates ~
The Tower card again is one of those cards that can be unsettling for some when it appears in a reading. And yes it can symbolise breakdown and destruction. But what we need to do, is accept that change is inevitable, and that there are going to be times when change does come along knocking at our door. Although we may not want it, we may want to try to stop it, there will ultimately be nothing that we can do about it, change WILL happen.
The best and least painful thing we can do for ourselves and for others that may be affected too, is to face what the Tower lays before us, face it head on. What ever change or destruction you may be experiencing, whether it be materialistically or personally, it is needed, however painful or disruptive it may be.
The overall energy of this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading is represented by the Tower and is not surprising considering the situation/s the world finds itself in at this moment in time, our very foundations are being shook to the ground. If you look at the image on the card, lightening really has struck us all in the form of Covid19 globally. But if things can fall apart so easily as they are, how strong were the foundations to start with?
Is not the significance of the Tower card this week, which represents breakdown in communication, destruction, a crumbling of foundations and CHANGE a strong message for us all?
The spirit world are reminding me of a part of their message from last week, which was “to let go of the negative patterns of thinking”. They speak of the need to re-asses ourselves, our lives and our lifestyles and be willing to change what needs to be changed (The Devil) and find the courage and strength to do so.
They again remind us through the 8 of Pentacles of the importance of the advice they have given over previous weeks, that is the need to see “everyone working together” to bring both “knowledge and skills together” to “look to the future together with a clear vision”. Not individuals working for just their own personal gain.
The King of Pentacles represents someone who has achieved his personal achievements and success. he has achieved this through hard work, clear thinking and careful planning, determination and self belief (8 of Pentacles). he has faced and overcome his inner fears and insecurities (The Devil) and built his life and success slowly and carefully. He has not attempted to do it alone, he has worked with others to gain his knowledge and skills to ensure that all he has built, is built on firm foundations. If he should face any Tower moment in his future, however painful it may be, he can face it with the confidence of knowing his foundations are strong and built to last.
The question is… If we want the life of the King of Pentacles are we willing to face the Tower head on and accept that it needs to take place both externally and internally? Are we willing to take on the role of the apprentice and listen to and follow the guidance that we are given, follow the rules, and work hard to achieve the end goal? Are we willing to face our own Devil, face our fears, clear out our negative thoughts and admit our weaknesses if only to ourselves and deal with them?
I feel that the message behind this weeks Spiritual Tarot and Guidance reading is two-fold. The spirit world are letting us know they are aware of the chaos, loss, destruction and confusion that is going on in our world right now, but at the same time they are also reminding us of the opportunity that we have to help one another, to rebuild and re-start our lives if we wish too, on a more stable, stronger foundation. And just as importantly the chance to grow, learn, understand and progress more on a spiritual level.
I hope that this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading has helped and given you support in some way. The messages from the Spiritual & Angelic realms are always bought to you on an energy of love, compassion and understanding.
I will say it again as I always do, “take some time out for yourself, It is allowed !”
Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.
