Trusting yourself and your intuition is key to success in life and in reading the cards. You will not be able to move deeper into your tarot understanding until you completely trust your inner voice.
These six tarot cards will help you with honoring yourself and will show you how to play with your inner wisdom so that you can learn to trust your own guidance.
STAY FOCUSED ON ABUNDANCE
Sincere gratitude is the antidote to worry and lack. Devote as much pleasure and attention as you can toward the activities, hobbies, people and projects that fill you up. Be proud of what you CAN do. Be patient with the process and yourself. And be open to every possibility, synchronicity, and unexpected surprise that may come your way.
If you don’t change your habits and patterns, nothing in your life will change. Desiring comfort and security is perfectly normal. It’s also perfectly dangerous. You will have to take risks to see change in your life. Control and power are assets, but only when used within yourself. True power comes from self-discipline, generosity, and confident humility.
The High Priestess is the deepest of your spiritual guides. She shows you the mysteries of your subconscious and helps you give a voice to your instincts. Your subconscious speaks to you through your dreams. Keep a notebook by your bed and record your dreams immediately after waking up. Take note of any patterns or messages from your subconscious when you are dreaming and translate them into your daily life.
COMMIT IN A BIG WAY
If you have been going half-assed on your goals and dreams, this is the time to shape up. If your situation hasn’t improved in the last year (or last five years!) it’s because you haven’t made it a priority. Commit to the long haul and do the work without cheating, looking for quick-fixes, or taking short-cuts. You can’t ignore your problems any longer. The truth will quickly come out.
TAKE BIGGER RISKS
When you are wondering what will happen next, The Fool shows up to tell you something awesome is about to happen. It’s time to take a risk with your life. Ask for the raise, invite your crush out on an actual date, or book that one-way ticket to the tropics. We only grow through experience, and The Fool is sending you on an adventure to gain the knowledge and confidence you need for this new life.
This card serves as a reminder to remain patient and go with the flow. You can’t ever control other people, but you can be patient as they learn their own mistakes. This includes yourself! Be patient with yourself as you learn the tough lessons of life and growth. Keep on the path, never give up, and be extremely gentle with yourself.
