The Hierophant

Have you ever struggled to conform to what others expect of you?

Perhaps you’ve struggled to meet your parent’s expectations for you, educationally or career-wise, because you simply wanted to do something else? Perhaps your spouse or lover likes you to behave in a certain way and you don’t like it?

The issues about what is right and wrong for you personally are of greater importance when The Hierophant appears in your reading.

For example, you may feel that fidelity and the tradition of marriage is important to you, and your lover is prepared to live together but not as man and wife, and this troubles you.

Perhaps there are many feelings, views, opinions and principles that you are having trouble expressing and living by, and suppressing them is causing internal conflict.

The Hierophant often represents a teacher or wise counsel – someone you may choose to turn to for help and guidance.

If you are struggling to be true to yourself, it can be very therapeutic to seek the comfort and understanding of someone who you feel able to express your REAL thoughts and feelings to.

Sometimes, we can feel trapped by someone or a situation, but in reality we have created the situation ourselves by denying what we really want or who we really are.

They say it can be difficult to see the reality of your own situation from within it, so when this kindly and spiritually comforting card appears in your reading, it could be suggesting you seek out the help and guidance of someone you trust to give you an alternative perspective.

It could also be highlighting the importance of being true to yourself and not simply conforming to what others expect of you.

We don’t always have the answers and we don’t always know what’s best for us … in such circumstances, when The Hierophant appears in your readings, consider seeking advice, guidance or counseling to help you find those answers.

Wheel Of Fortune

What Goes Up Must Come Down – The Wheel Of Fortune

Hi Sindy. What goes up must come down – we all know and understand this, yet when we are down, feeling low or unhappy, it can be so hard to believe life will ever get better!

Sometimes we experience good luck and good fortune unexpectedly, and when we do, oh how joyful and exciting it is! Getting a phone call out of the blue from the person you’ve fancied for ages asking you out on a date, winning some money, getting an unexpected promotion and pay rise at work, friends and family throwing you a surprise party – all these experiences or surprises make us feel on top of the world.

Conversely, when you hear through a friend that your lover is seeing someone else, your bank surprisingly turns down your request for a loan, your boss unexpectedly announces you’re going to be laid off or you lose a loved one – these experiences and shocks can leave us emotionally devastated, feeling as though the world is somehow against us.

The Wheel of Fortune represents such unexpected turns of fate and fortune. Sometimes the wheel will turn in your favor and bring unexpected good luck and fortune, sometimes it will turn against you and you will experience bad luck and misfortune. However, the wheel suggests that these turns of fortune are beyond your control, they are part of the eternal movement and cycle of life.

When the Wheel of Fortune appears in your readings you can expect an unexpected change in your fortune … so if you have been experiencing a run of bad luck or misfortune and the Wheel of Fortune lays in your near future, then the cards are suggesting that it won’t be long before fate will come into play and your luck will start to change.

Conversely, in the situation where the Wheel of Fortune is ahead and things have been going great for you up to now, read it as a warning that something unexpected may throw a spanner in the works and bring a challenging time.

The appearance of this card in answer to a question about what you should do about something or someone, can suggest that, whatever you do, fate will determine the outcome. However, if surrounding cards are negative, it could be a warning that making the wrong choice could backfire on you.

Life has its ups and downs, and understanding and accepting this helps us to hold a more realistic view of life itself. Remember that the wheel turns up, just as surely as it turns down … it’s just the eternal and constant rhythm and cycle of life.

Sweet Empress

Tarot__Empress_by_Tsabo6

Sisters

Our divine feminine, the goddess within … we all have the ability to know her, whether you’re male or female, this ‘intuition’ or ‘psychic awareness’ within is omnipresent, a ‘universal knowing’ if you like.

When was the last time you went against your intuition or gut feelings just to hear yourself say ‘I knew I shouldn’t have done that, I somehow knew it wouldn’t work out’?

This gut instinct, intuition or 6th sense, whatever you want to call it, is our spirit, our subconscious or what I like to call our ‘authentic’ self speaking to us.

The High Priestess card represents this very intuitive guide we all have within ourselves, and we can always call upon her provided we have the courage to listen to her.

So often we take what appears to be the easy option, or we remain in our comfort zone, only to later realize the illusion. For example, have you ever stayed in an abusive or unfulfilling relationship, despite your ‘intuition’ telling you that you are unhappy and should leave, just to avoid being on your own?

Have you remained in a dead end job that brings no satisfaction and a poor income, despite your ‘intuition’ telling you that you could do so much better for yourself if you could find the courage to leave?

Fear of the unknown, fear of rejection and fear of loneliness are, for me, the three greatest reasons why we choose to be deaf or ignorant to our intuitive guide, and wind up staying in relationships, jobs and situations that we are far from happy with.

When this magical and enigmatic card appears in your reading, ask yourself ‘what is the secret to finding the happiness I seek?’ For The High Priestess is the keeper of secrets, your secrets, and the greatest irony is that you are the only one who can know the secrets she has to share with you.

You must develop the ability to silence the noise of your conscious fears, and allow your mind to be still and silent enough for your intuitive guide or High Priestess to communicate with you. Thus she will reveal the secret to your own happiness.

The more you learn to trust your intuitive guide, the more aligned you will become with your ‘true’ desires and your ‘true’ self. For example, if the quiet voice in your head is telling you that starting an affair with your boss is not a good idea, it may be wise to listen to it!

If that voice grows ever louder and more persistent about something you are doing or considering, see it as your own High Priestess imploring you to listen … you need to pay attention!

So, when The High Priestess appears in your readings, it’s time to ask yourself how you really feel and think about the issue or situation? Your conscious self must learn to trust your intuitive self.

La Lune

la lune_final

It has long been said that the full Moon has a powerful effect on our emotional state, creating tides of emotions within us.

When we experience such turbulent emotions, it is difficult to believe that we could ever feel harmony and peace within ourselves again.

Highly charged feelings cause havoc in our lives, and when The Moon appears in your readings, you can be sure there are issues in your life that are causing confusion and mixed emotions.

When this card appears, it is suggesting you take a step back and view your situation from a different perspective and with a calmer logic.

However, The Moon does represent powerful feelings and it isn’t always easy to gain clarity: we often can’t ‘see the wood for the trees’. The path to clarity and understanding is a challenging one, yet despite the emotional wrenches you may feel, it is right for you.

For example, if you are in a situation where you need to let go of a lover or partner for whatever reason, but emotionally cannot summon up the courage to do so, even though you know it’s the right thing to do, trust that the new path you seek is right for you.

Often when a decision is very difficult and causes strong emotional resistance within us, we allow our weaker nature to rule. However, in many of these situations it is a brave heart and clear mind that help us see through the fog of unruly emotion and step onto our true path.

The Moon not only represents illusion caused by powerful emotions, but also illusion or trickery created by other people’s lies or misleading behavior. Therefore, when The Moon appears in a reading, it’s a good idea to question your motives and those of people close to you, and it is best to refrain from making firm decisions until you know and feel a sense of certainty about your choices.

The wan light of The Moon does in some way shed light upon the right path for us, but because we cannot see clearly in dim light we doubt ourselves and hold back from taking the steps forward.

The Moon may suggest that your avoidance to take action or make a tough decision about a certain situation is simply due to fear of loss. Fear has much to do with The Moon, and courage is always needed to conquer fear, so take your time when The Moon appears in your readings and search for your inner courage. With patience you will find the clarity you seek.
