Walking the Path of the Major Arcana – Judgement

This post is a continuation of a month-long challenge hosted on Tarot Rebels. As I can’t commit to daily draws at the moment, I am following along at my own snail’s pace here. The concept of the challenge is to see the ways in which the energies of the Major Arcana are affecting and manifesting in my life at the moment. *

Judgement: Where in my life can I offer resolve to my judgements?

This is now the fourth question in a row that I have received a Cup card as an answer, so there seems to be a broader message emerging that the final stages in the Major Arcana themes in my life right now revolve around emotion, intuition and spirituality.

I came to the realisation a while ago that I had for too long seen the rational and logical as the only legitimate approaches to life, emotions and spirituality. But I knew I was missing something and eventually decided to stop prioritising the judgements of my rational brain over all else.

This was a big moment of Judgement for me, the realisation that I had been approaching life and mystery all wrong, that I was making my life hollow and so many things felt meaningless. In these cards I see the message that I must maintain the resolve to build my intuitive muscles and continue to dedicate myself to understanding the mystical and hidden elements of the universe.

Walking the Path of the Major Arcana – The Star

The Star: What offers me the most hope for healing?

The Fool’s appearance here is a pleasant surprise and a good reminder that not everything worthwhile has to be hard work. When going through self-directed healing and spiritual development, I have a tendency to go down the most challenging route with lots of soul searching, shadow work, owning my shit and confronting my demons. While this approach certainly has its place, sometimes it can be healing to just lighten the hell up and not taking everything so damn seriously.

The cards are telling me that the biggest hope for healing comes to me now if I can inject a bit more lightheartedness and joie de vivre in my approach. Maybe it is the time to just be and let healing follow along at its own pace.

 

 

 

Why Six Swords? My Spiritual Transition …a Work in Progress

This blog has been up and running for just over a month now, so I thought it was high time for a little explanation as to my choice of Six Swords as my divination moniker and to share a bit (actually quite a bit) about my spiritual path, as the two are very much interconnected.

This card is the calm after the storm of the fives, the clearing away of tension, static and confusion. It is a time of sadness, but also release, relief and healing. It isn’t the moment of change or transition itself, it is the moment just after we decide to instigate change. It is the realisation that in order to search for truth, we need to let go of what we think we already know, and be brave enough to sail to unknown shores.

‘3 Voices’ Personal Reading – Motherhood and Burnout

spread

It took me a couple of days to decide whether or not I wanted to share this post, it is long and very personal and could open me up to some unpleasant judgments. I realized though that as someone who wants to become a professional reader, and who hopes that people will trust me to be non-judgmental and empathetic, I need to open myself up, to trust in the kindness of others and create that safe space myself. So I’m carving out that little nook right here and right now on this blog.
