Tarot Contemplation – Strength

Your greatest strength is in being vulnerable today.  Let your defenses down.  Stop hiding, especially from yourself.  With a sense of unconditional self-love and compassion towards your self, feel your feelings completely and honestly.  It is time to pull upon your deep inner strength.  It may be that you have pushed away your wild, animalistic desires and impulses for the sake of logic and spirituality.  Strength is urging you to work with that wild part of yourself.  Find a balance between your basic drives and higher aspirations.  You may be surprised to find that getting into your body, whether through exercise, feasting, or sex, actually opens up new spiritual doorways for you and increases your personal power.  If there is conflict in your situation, Strength may be advising you to face your adversary with love and compassion.  Don’t worry: you’re not giving up, only taming the beast.

Pāli Word a Day for October 23, 2017 — asāhasa — absence of violence, peaceableness

Saddhīdha vittaṃ purisassa seṭṭhaṃ
Dhammo suciṇṇo sukhamāvahāti.
Saccaṃ have sādutaraṃ rasānaṃ.
Paññājīviṃ jīvitamāhu seṭṭhaṃ.

Conviction is a person’s highest wealth.
Dhamma, when well-practiced, brings bliss.
Truth is the highest of tastes.
Living with discernment, one’s life is called best.

Sutta Nipāta 1.184
Translated from Pāli by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Tarot Contemplation – Two of Swords

Think before you communicate today. You are putting off making a decision for now.  You may be feeling ambivalence or uncertainty. You may not want to offend or hurt someone involved.  You need to withdraw in order to contemplate your options.  It’s likely that you’ll decide to say nothing at all, or hold off on making a decision until another day.  That’s all right.  Be rational in making a decision.  You might need to know more facts before you can make an informed decision.  Give yourself the space and time you need to think things through clearly.  Perhaps, you’re feeling like Spock:  you could be ignoring your emotions by using logic to deny how you’re feeling.  Perhaps you may be denying a truth, or compartmentalizing some aspect of your life in order to not have to deal with this truth.

Evoking The Great Spirit

O Great Creator, I come before you in a humble manner and offer you this sacred pipe. With tears in my eyes and an ancient song from my heart I pray. To the four powers of Creation, To the Grandfather Sun, To the Grandmother Moon, To the Mother Earth, And to my ancestors. I pray for my relations in Nature, All those who walk, crawl, fly, and swim, Seen and unseen, To the good spirits that exist in every part of Creation. I ask that you bless our elders and children, families, and friends, and the brothers and sisters who are in prison. I pray for the ones who are sick on drugs and alcohol and for those who are now homeless and forlorn. I also pray for peace among the four races of humankind.

May there be good health and healing for this Earth,
May there be Beauty above me, May there be Beauty below me,
May there be Beauty in me, May there be Beauty all around me.
I ask that this world be filled with Peace, Love, and Beauty.

Tarot Contemplation – Temperance

Aim high, but don’t have expectations of yourself or others that you or they can’t possibly meet.  Do your work with patience and with stamina and it will pay off for you in the long run. Your accomplishments will not be overlooked.  There is likely to be a good balance between what is going out and what is coming in relative to your finances. However, if you need to increase or collect your earnings, you are going to have to ask for what you deserve. Have courage and pride, and you will not fail.
