Tarot for the week ahead

Cards from Joyce and Pamela Eakins’ Tarot of the Spirit

Hmm. Interesting times when a couple of majors show up, especially when one of them visited not all that long ago.

Sometimes to anchor my thoughts for a reading I like to revisit the words of the creator(s) of the deck I’m using; it’s an interesting exercise to see what stands out from those. The accompanying booklet with the Tarot of the Spirit talks, with respect to the Five of Fire (aka Wands), about “relinquishing that which is obsolete.” Sometimes we need to let go of ideas, preconceptions, or limits in order to progress towards the things we want.

The Wheel of Fortune appeared a couple of weeks ago: the fact that it’s back tells me that everything is moving in mysterious ways at the moment. Fate, if you want to call it that, is making things happen. We should remain alert to synchronicities and try to keep our balance if things feel like they’re spinning a little too fast.

It struck me today that Eakins says of the Hierophant we should “become both student and teacher; seek both student and teacher.” We forget sometimes that although we may feel inexperienced or nervous as we navigate unfamiliar territory (and which of us hasn’t done that this year?), we may in fact be guiding or teaching others in ways we haven’t recognised. For me this ties the threads of this reading into one message: trust the process. Surrender to it. There is so much yet to be learned.

Have a good week and stay safe x
