Energy Reading ~ Sagittarius: Your Hopes and Aspirations

 

Rider Waite Smith Tarot
A standing knight on a heavy destrier offers a pentacle.

In the Knight of Pentacles/EARTH, the number Twelve reaches the final point in the creative process: material manifestation. The Knight of Pentacles in the Rider Waite Smith deck shows a very solid knight mounted on a large horse.

He wears oak leaves in his helmet and the same symbol adorns the head of his steed. Oak is a symbol in all Western cultures of steadiness, solidity, patience, and time. It takes a lot of time for an acorn to turn into a robust oak tree. But the result, like a well-constructed house, is worth it. When you want to manifest something that lasts, call upon the Knight of Pentacles; you will be glad that you did.

Tarot of Creativity
In The Tarot of Creativity, the title of the Knight of Earth is entitled CONCEIVE. We might consider a knight to be masculine energy, but the TOC does not have gender bias; instead it promotes the concepts of inclusion and wholeness. A woman can be a warrior, and a man can birth a child.

To understand this card in the TOC it is necessary to look at the preceding card in the suit: the Page of Earth, which is inscribed with the title, Desire. The Suit of Pentacles/EARTH is the last stage in the creative process, where the energy of intent (Fire) is coalesced into matter (Earth).

When You get This Card in a Reading
This is the moment you have been working toward for a long time. Now is the time to focus on practical considerations.

Rider Waite Smith Tarot
A royal page with a flowered tunic is puzzled to find a fish in his cup.

In this card, we have one of the most playful images in the Tarot. The fish in the cup looks like an unexpected surprise; like a delivery of a musical telegram that declares the love the sender has for the recipient.

…This card is about imagination and the delightful and surprising ways that creative inspiration and intuition can suddenly pop up in your life. The fish of imagination emerges from your emotions (water) to play with you.

Tarot of Creativity
…This is the “brainstorm” card, and the “inner voice” card. Psychic ability and creativity are twins that come from the same womb of imagination. Imagination is a power that we use all the time, unconsciously by default, but consciously when we become masters of awareness. This card shows us how we can learn to use our emotions as a compass and our intuition to guide us.

The Page of Water tells you that the CURRENT of imagination is there all the time, running alongside your life, but you must use the rudder of your will or intent in order to master the direction of your vessel. Getting this card in a reading is like a playful invitation from Spirit as the fish of intuition suddenly leaps into your boat.

When You get This Card in a Reading
Let your mind play with possibilities.

Rider Waite Smith Tarot
SPIRIT IN MATTER—at once both the journey and the seeker of experience. The Fool represents the Spirit who has descended into matter. He is the holy fool who can be either foolish or wise.

…The Fool wears his heart on his sleeve, as he foolishly follows his passions with unrestrained, sheer delight; he lives in the moment, totally engaged and without expectations. Eyes on his dreams and head in the clouds, anyone would think he is about to take a fall. The realists in his life are expecting to laugh when he lands flat on his face, as they are sure he is bound to do, but in most cases the Fool finds himself carried in midair by the sheer lightness of his being…

Tarot of Creativity
…The secret of the Fool is his innocence and simplicity, he trusts in his journey, and thus he carries nothing with him: his spirit is unburdened and light. As the Fool travels through the Tarot he discovers the principles and laws of existence. He seeks to clear his thoughts and emotions so that he is a clear conduit for Spirit; he seeks to achieve enlightenment. This state is indicated in the final Major Arcana card, The World/TRANSCEND, a card that shows that the Fool has completed his journey through life. He has succeeded in becoming self-aware while existing in the dense realm of physical reality.

When You get This Card in a Reading
If you get this card in a reading, know that you can look at life as the perennial beginner, and this freshness to life—without memory of hardship, victimization, humiliation, or blocks — is the real secret to creativity. Do the opposite of what you always do, break some rules — risk being foolish.

Rider Waite Smith Tarot
…The MOON reflects only a pale portion of the light of the Sun; it reflects the fear we often have of our own subconscious, the right brain, or female side of our brain. There are great riches to be discovered in the subconscious if you can walk the path in balance. Everything in this card indicates that the extremes of a polarized existence are to be avoided: being a DOG is no better than being a WOLF, and the prison-like TOWERS are austere reminders that a life lived in the prison of the ego or too-rational mind is a severe and barren existence.

Tarot of Creativity
The title of The Moon in The Tarot of Creativity is DREAMING. The infinite pool of universal subconscious that some may call Source can be accessed through our DREAMS. Our personal subconscious is linked with the universal subconscious through our dreams.

…Reality is the dream of the Soul that it has chosen to experience. Karma and the dreams of the incarnated Self in all its myriad forms is the consciousness that is reflected by the MOON. You, as the individual dreamer have access to the collective dream. It cannot be otherwise. The dream you dream unlocks the subconscious like a key.

When You get This Card in a Reading
Are you afraid of your dreams? The subconscious has nothing in it to be afraid of: it is merely a messenger with a message to deliver to you. An artist learns to tap into her dreams for creative material. Use your dreams in order to clear your subconscious; then they can help you know your highest desires, the light of the MOON illuminates the path to your dreams. The best route to your dreams is the most direct one.

Rider Waite Smith Tarot
A craftsman consults with his patrons about a building.

…This card shows you the final building of the creative vision first conceptualized in the Three of Wands. When we get to the Pentacles/EARTH stage of creative manifestation, we have to handle details well. After all, if you don’t put the precise measurements into an architectural plan, the whole thing may fall down. This is due to the density of this plane which operates by certain laws; gravity doesn’t exist at “lighter levels,” such as the level of intent represented by the Wands suit or the level of thought represented by the Swords suit. The suit of Pentacles, as the suit of the material, is very practical.

Tarot of Creativity
It is time to explore and cultivate your ideas. The Three of Earth expresses what happens when you have followed the path of creative manifestation through the number Three.

What was easy to start in the Three of Fire may be a bit harder when you get to the Three of Earth. The manifestation process is easier to influence at the beginning in the Fire stage than in the manifestation stage represented by the Earth suit. But if you are conscious of all aspects of yourself, and the proper way to create, represented by the four suits of the Tarot, you can direct change in a conscious way.

When You get This Card in a Reading
Spend some time with your creative muse. Don’t plan anything, just play and brainstorm for a while without any mental or emotional constraints.

Rider Waite Smith Tarot
A page seems to admire a pentacle that he holds aloft.

A wave collapses into a particle when we look at it, and back into a wave when don’t; this is the magic of creation — the magic of the quantum field, which shows us the sleight of hand directed by consciousness itself. The Page looks at the Pentacle with awe and wonder, approving and welcoming it as a magical gift that has suddenly appeared.

Tarot of Creativity
DESIRE is the title of the Page of Earth card. The message represented by the number Eleven is the Divine Intent that emanates from the Higher Self. Intent at the higher level of Spirit translates as desire when it hits the self-conscious…

The creative master learns how to move it from the emotion of desire (perception of lack) to the feeling of desire (intent). This is what is meant by the purification of desire: you graduate from an emotion of lack, to the feeling of wholeness, from the separation induced by the time-space field, to the unification in the moment of now — outside all temporal forms. Desire spurs the impulse, the movement of creation.

When You get This Card in a Reading
Allow the energy of desire to move you towards the life of your dreams.

Energy Reading ~ Taurus: Your Finances and Worldly Situation

 

Rider Waite Smith Tarot
A queen sits on a throne of lions holding a staff as a scepter and a sunflower; a black cat sits alertly at her feet.

…Who can thrive without the love and care of their mother? How long would we live if the planet Earth did not sustain us? The energy of the wisdom of love infuses all matter, it is a wave that undulates below all material existence. Love is the energy that supports the cornucopia of matter,* the ever-flowing breast of the Divine Mother that feeds all life. The archetype of the Goddess Sophia represents the understanding that love is the energy that supports everything in the physical. We can use this archetype to induce love to flow in our life by allowing the principle of love to move freely through us, using us as a channel on the physical plane…

Tarot of Creativity
In The Tarot of Creativity, the Queen of Fire is THE FLAME of pure intent and desire. The mastery of intent and desire requires a strong individual who has erased the lower, unconscious emotions from her life, and purified her desire in the flame of her original, innate being.

The Queen of Fire is in perfect, balanced alignment with her Higher Self. As the material version of her Higher Self, she executes the intent of her Spirit, and she achieves her desires as if by magic, or truth be told, by magic indeed.

When You get This Card in a Reading
The Queen of Fire represents the mastery of the primal force of creation. But mastery isn’t domination, it is a feeling of alignment, a partnership of your lower self with your Higher Self. The Fire that bridges your material experience with the intent of your Spirit is the FLAME of passion.

Energy Reading ~ Aries: Your Current Thoughts and Concerns

 

Rider Waite Smith Tarot
A young man waves a sword in front of turbulent clouds.

…The ego can present formidable opposition to information that may not jibe with its established thought patterns or beliefs. The Page here may be fighting those beliefs, or he may be simply trying to fight the winds of change with his reason — not the most effective use of anyone’s mental energy. As the Page cuts through the clouds of confusion, more light can come through —we become enlightened as everything around us is bathed in light…

Tarot of Creativity
The Page of Air in the TOC is about using your mental powers to envision something new — to dare to see what isn’t in material form yet. The power to ENVISION is the mark of any great thinker. If no one tried to imagine a different reality than the one that presents itself to us, we would never evolve…

The Page of Air shows you how to edit out thoughts and beliefs that do not serve you. This gives us enough space so we can envision something different. You don’t have to spend hours meditating, you can do this as a practice during your normal day. Attaining a state of bliss, or being in the NOW, is a matter of accrual — bit by bit, you can add to your inner silence by being present for small moments during the day. Once you have accrued even a small measure of inner silence, your creative abilities simply open up.

When You get This Card in a Reading
Cut through the confusion and be present in the Now.

Energy Reading for the First Wave ~ Justice / Illumination

Energy Reading ~ Standing in the Place of Justice / Illumination

 

Rider Waite Smith Tarot
The Eleven is the first Master number; it means “illumination.” It also means “the teacher,” or “the messenger,” which relates it to the angels. …The principle or concept behind this card is best represented by the ancient Egyptian Goddess Maat, who weighed the heart of the recently deceased against a feather. If the heart was heavier than the feather, the Soul would have to return to physical life, and not pass on. This is a test of emotions and beliefs. The Soul cannot not pass if it is weighed down by heavy negative beliefs, petty thoughts, and unconscious emotions; it has to be “light-hearted,” not burdened with unresolved emotions…

Tarot of Creativity
Your reality is based upon the thoughts and emotions that you are projecting. If you cannot pass the test of inner discipline, you are still emotionally attached to something. The Goddess Justice will not let you pass.

This card stands for Nature and the way she works. Justice/Illumination tells us that what we experience is the result of what we are imagining (as outlined in Key #8/Strength/I-MAGE); this is a law of nature: the Law of Cause and Effect, which is one of the ways that duality achieves Equilibrium. If you ignore the laws of the universe, you are ignorant of your own power to imagine new realities and incapable of manifesting your desires.

When You get This Card in a Reading
In order to experience the illumination of higher awareness, you have to fearlessly face everything, and stop judging it as good or bad.

The Journey of the Fool ~ Part 4

The Fool walks through not just the Major Arcana, which symbolize the “higher” path of spiritual mastery, but through the other cards in the Tarot. He travels through the Minor Arcana, the four suits which each represent a different path of Earth-based mastery. The Fool nears the edge of the cliff but his eyes are on the sky, as if he has a vision of a totally different reality. He is so innocent to physical reality that he doesn’t comprehend that he might fall. A little dog that represents socialized consciousness nips at his heels to try to warn him of the dangers of his foolishness. Jumping off a cliff is certainly foolish in the eyes of “normal” people, but the Fool comes from a place where physical, or social rules don’t apply. The Fool is looking up, he has a vision.

What is the vision of The Fool? He desires to become The Angel or Perfected Man. His task on Earth is to remember his original, perfected Self while in physical form. He came from a state of perfection, and his job is to “re-member” or reassemble himself back into perfection while experiencing duality.

The Journey of the Fool ~ Part 3

The Tarot follows the progression of The Fool on his path through life, as he strives to find what he lost; to remember the higher consciousness that he forgot when he was forced into spiritual amnesia by the density of this plane.

The Fool is arguably the most important card in the deck, but this has more to do with the fact that the Fool, as the daring Hero, is a universal archetype. He is a hero because he dares to do what may seem to be dangerous or foolhardy to other souls: come to Earth.

The Journey of the Fool ~ Part 2

…Calling this card “The Fool” is a blind — an intentionally misleading title, meant to confound the profane seekers of enlightenment, who would not be able to reconcile the “foolishness” of a Fool with goal of wisdom or enlightenment. The Fool stands in for the Hero; a universal archetype that thrives in the mystical arcana of every civilization on Earth.

A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man. ~Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949)

The Hero is in every fable, in every culture. Often he starts out as an outcast or loner. He begins his journey as the underdog in a battle or situation that grossly disfavors him, and proceeds on his quest — suffering one or many dark nights of the Soul — without help from his fellows. He is on his own. Everyone he left behind thinks that he is a Fool. And from their standpoint that is the only thing he can be. Often he wonders if what they think of him is really true, but, although he may waver and doubt himself, he cannot stop his quest once he has started…

The Journey of the Fool ~ Part 1

SPIRIT IN MATTER—at once both the journey and the seeker of experience. The Fool represents the Spirit who has descended into matter. He is the holy fool who can be either foolish or wise.

Traditionally, The Fool is the only unnumbered card in ancient decks; modern decks assign the value of Zero to this card. One could argue that the Zero is not a number at all, it is a placeholder that has no intrinsic value. However, the Zero as the universal symbol of the circle is an archetypical concept that defines the vast sea of Cosmic Consciousness, the implicate field. A circle is one of the most ancient glyphs worldwide, appearing in every ancient culture on Earth. The symbol of the circle means Spirit, with its center everywhere and circumference nowhere.

The Fool is the most important card in the Tarot; he is said to be traveling through the deck as he travels through life. Ultimately, the Fool represents everyman in his journey through life. The Fool represents the Soul of the Querent as it journeys through material existence and learns how to apply the laws and principles of the universe in his life…

The Art of the Tarot

The art of the Tarot is best represented by the Temperance/ALCHEMY card, which demonstrates the magic of creative synthesis and the alchemy of deliberate creation. Reading the Tarot involves a creative synthesis of the Reader’s personality, intuition, knowledge, and wisdom, married in a mystical union with the Reader’s Higher Self, achieved through the medium of the pictures and numbers of the cards.

Whenever we read the Tarot, we are participating in an intriguing tradition of self-discovery, remembrance, and creative envisioning that reaches back into the mists of time, and prepares us for our journey into an empowered future.

The Mystery of the Minor Arcana

When I first started studying the Tarot, I didn’t see the connections that I do now. I was confused by the titles and some of the images, which seemed to present a barrier to my understanding. Realizing that my own preconceptions were the cause I redoubled my efforts to “see beyond” the image into its metaphorical, rather than historical, meaning. Then I started to see and understand the archetypes in the Major Arcana.

The lower cards do not contain the same kind of symbols and imagery. It almost seems as if the Tarot is actually two decks: the Major Arcana and the pip cards. When I focused my intuition on the cards they started to speak to me.

But the lower cards continued to mystify me.

I wondered, “Is it possible that the lower cards are as meaningful and powerful as the Major Arcana?” When I considered that the Tarot might be an ancient map for the evolution of man, the wisdom of the cards suddenly began to reveal itself to me.

The Path of Creativity

Whatever you can dream is available to you, but first you must know how to use your creative potential. An artist is not defined by his work, but by the power of his creative thought. This book gives you the tools to achieve those dreams, whether you are a creative professional, a student of art, or someone interested in personal development.

Becoming an artist does not require a mastery of technique, great skills or advanced degrees, it only requires that you take the time to be an artist. Art is about change, exploration, and about the courage to know yourself.

Often we don’t accept a challenge because we fear change and commitment. Perhaps we are afraid, because we know deep down that a life like this takes unconditional passion, courage, and dedication. To live a consciously creative life, you have to show the forces that be that you deserve the life you want by consistently displaying these qualities. This is what Joseph Campbell calls the Hero’s Path. Make no mistake, if you follow a path of conscious change you are walking in the very footsteps of giants.

So I ask you: when will you allow yourself the life you deserve? A voice is whispering in your ear: today is the day.

Hidden in Full View

The originators of the Tarot hid their ancient knowledge in full view, to protect it from those who would keep the average man in ignorance of his true power. The best way to enslave a man is through his mind. The word, “government” means “to rule the mind” (govern-mental). The Tarot, if read properly, and if its guidance is followed rigorously, can empower the individual to question the status quo, and so evolve his own consciousness. This is why a system of self-realization that allows an individual to tap into their own intuition and guidance is recognized as a threat by the ruling class of any epoch, including this one. Of course, the rulers in any system don’t want their constituents to become self-realized; evolved individuals don’t need governance, conventions, or traditions. They follow the dictates of Natural Law. An understanding of the Oneness behind all appearances would not allow them to hurt another. This is what Christ meant when he said, “Whatsoever you do to the least of my people, that you do unto me.”

Now, try one or more of the following ideas:

1. Meditate on your chosen card, choose its equivalent card from the Tarot of Creativity or another deck and see how the meaning for this card enhances your understanding. In the case of a card with a seemingly negative meaning, use it to help you resolve the block indicated. Use an equivalent card in another suit or deck to help advise you on how to proceed.

2. If you chose a card with negative implications, choose a contrasting card that best symbolizes what you want to manifest in your life. If the card was positive then keep the card. Memorize the image so you can recall it at will. Visualize this card, bring it up often throughout the day for as many days as seems appropriate. If you can’t memorize it, then put the card on a table in your home or on your desk where you can see it many times throughout the day. Feel the emotions and feelings in the card, use the image as a mnemonic device to help you visualize your desired outcome.

3. Find the number in all the suits that match your card’s number and line them up to see how to use the power in all of the suits to manifest what you want. If one or more of the cards are “negative” in feel, know that you are merely in a rough spot: use the cards as wise advice to help you correct your course, and ease your transition. Choose another card in the same suit that best epitomizes what you do want and use it as in #2 above.

4. Bring up the Major Arcana card that matches the number of your card for the “meta-meaning” of your cards number. Use this card as wise counsel to advise you on how to best proceed, or how to better understand your situation.

5. Look at the cards in the suit that precede and follow the card you chose (if you chose the Six of Wands, you would be looking at the Five of Wands that precedes your card, and the Seven of Wands that follows it). See how the progression may show you what you need to work on and how to handle what may happen as a result. Alternatively you can use these three cards as a Past, Present, Future reading to gain insight on your path.

The Tarot as a Personal Manifestation Machine (part 2)

You don’t have to memorize the cards, although this helps a lot. If you have memorized all the cards, then you can allow your intuition to bring up a card in your mind. If you are just beginning or have difficulty visualizing the cards, then do this:

Separate your deck into suits; put the Major Arcana in numerical order and set it aside for a while. Then choose the category that reflects what you want to manifest and choose the pile of cards of that respective suit (see above). Now choose a single card from your pile in one of three ways:

TECHNIQUE ONE: Randomize the cards in the suit you chose and pick one. This card will be what your intuition and Higher Guidance wants you to focus on.

TECHNIQUE TWO: Look through the cards and see if one really appeals to you.

TECHNIQUE THREE: Put the cards of the suit in a line on the table progressing from the ace and ending at the king. Look at how the cards progress through the suit. Choose the card that most accurately reflects the place you feel you are right now.

The Tarot as a Personal Manifestation Machine (part 1)

You can use the Tarot like flashcards to help you focus your intent, visualize, and then manifest the life you want. This is a very powerful technique that uses the natural structure of the Tarot. The suits of the Tarot reflect all human desires; this makes it very easy to target the area you want to work with at the moment:

WANDS/FIRE = intent, energy, success, desire, passion, creative inspiration

SWORDS/AIR = mental discipline, details, planning, brainstorming

CUPS/WATER = love, relationships

PENTACLES/EARTH = health, wealth, financial success

MAJOR ARCANA = spiritual laws and progression, spiritual aspirations

Learning how to Handle Reversals in Reading Tarot (part 3)

In general, when a card is upright, its energy is free to manifest; if it is reversed, the energy of the upright card may be blocked, losing power, or not yet fully developed. Many people think that a reversed card means the opposite of the upright card, but this interpretation may be too simplistic once you start really working with the cards, and they start “talking” to you. Here are a few ideas of what a reversal might mean:

~ A hidden energy or influence

~ A developing energy

~ Blocked energy

~ An energy that is waning

~ An inner lesson

~ An event or influence that has recently passed

~ Spiritual information

~ A shamanic or spiritual initiation

~ The opposite meaning
