I encourage you to read about the additional card I pulled this week and see how it applies to your life. Anything that is brought to one of us is a message for all of us.
This week's Intuitive Tuesday card was the Ten of Wands (reversed), which is about releasing burdens and preparing for upcoming changes in your life.
I pulled an additional card today for Suzi, in response to her comment:
I got this same message a wee bit earlier this evening before I read your blog... It came to me in a different way of course but the message was the same none-the-less.The follow-up card I pulled today is from my new tarot deck (I got it! I got it!), the Legacy of the Divine Tarot by Ciro Marchetti. This is the same artist who created the Gilded Tarot deck and these cards are beautiful!
"The reversed Ten of Wands may also indicate that you have been preparing for some changes in your life, possibly subconsciously, and are getting ready to more fully commit to your new direction."
That statement is bang on! Thanks Sheri...
The card I pulled in response to Suzi's comment is the Queen of Cups. If I were to hand-select a card from the deck to describe you, Suzi, this would be the card (the High Priestess would be a close second).
The Queen of Cups is a highly intuitive, sensitive, nurturing woman who is comfortable with emotions -- both her own and others. She is the type of woman who could mother just about anyone...and does. The Queen of Cups has a huge heart, is loving, caring empathic and intuitive.
Suzi, for you, this symbolizes not what will happen in your life, but how you approach it. You pulled a quote from the Intuitive Tuesday post about upcoming changes in your life and fully committing to your new direction.
The approach you take this year is not new to you, but more intense and more consistent. This year your intuitive gifts will be very present in your every day life. In the past you may have tapped into your intuition after trying several other approaches to make a decision or face a situation. This year your intuition will be front and center. You intuition will be your first choice for how to approach...anything.
For all of us...use the message of today's card, the Queen of Cups, as a reminder to you to tap into your intuition every day...all of the time. If it seems awkward at first, remain persistent. Keep tapping in, get a gut feel...and then go from there. Remember the Ring of Truth exercise I talked about in a previous post? This is a great time to use this skill, at least until you begin to trust your intuition immediately.
If it's easier, pretend that you have a brand new pair of glasses that have an "intuition" filter or tint. When you put these glasses on, you see the world from an intuitive perspective. Situations in your life are filtered through your intuitive gifts before they enter your brain. So your brain is processing your intuitive hits about the situation instead of the details of what's happening in front of you.
As you get used to your new "intuitive" glasses, imagine that they turn into contact lenses and then are incorporated into your system through Lasik surgery. This is when your intuitive filter becomes part of who you are and how you see the world. Every day. All the time. Get it?
So...once you put on your intuitive glasses, let me know how things look from this perspective!
