Express Yourself! Heroic Tarot’s June Schedule

The 8 of Wands

“Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.”
~Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

Happy June, dear reader!  This month we take a brief look at the energetic 8 of Wands which brings movement and change into our lives!  All 8s of the Minor Arcana bring us challenges about how to express our goals and work with our confidence.  8 is the number of advancement, achievement and a balance with self.  We must pass the 8s in order to activate our hopes into true reality.  The 8 of Wands in particular denotes our ability to express our enthusiasm, to release our creative powers towards our goals.  As Eckhart Tolle says, in his book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose:

Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.

How do you stay on course while entertaining new ideas?  How do you harness your energies into activity?  Are you able to balance your fire with self-control?  Contact me today for your individual Heroic Tarot reading and let us ask these questions together!

Beltane Blessings! Heroic Tarot’s May Schedule

Untitled

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.” ~Rumi Jelaluddin

Happy Beltane to you, dear reader!  May all of the rites of spring inspire you to bring growth and creative expansion to all of the seeds you have been planting this year!  May you dance with the sweetest of friends and celebrate the wondrous gifts that life brings us!  Remember to give gratitude for all of the challenges as well as the blessings!

I chose to feature the Three of Cups this month because it reminds me of the Beltane Maypole Ritual that so many communities still celebrate today.  Traditionally the Three of Cups represents the gift of friendship and good cheer!  It is a time to honor our mutual achievements and work with one another to manifest our new goals.  Some folks see the Triple Goddess in this card and some see an image of the Muses.  However you look at it, this card lets us know it is time to throw off our sorrow and dance!

What are your challenges in the realm of love?  Continuing with the theme of quoting Rumi, I ask you to consider this one, also by the great poet:

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

All 3s in the Tarot (not merely the Three of Cups) represent our gifts and obstacles relating to the principle of love.  What is the relationship of your imagination to love?  Do you believe in the impossible or do your fears keep you from realizing your hopes and dreams?  Contact me today for your individual Heroic Tarot reading and let us ask these questions together!
