Tarot reading for May 2014
On the first day of each month I like to do a simple 3 cards reading to see what the month is going to be about.
Today I used the Gaian deck.
Position 2 Position 3 Position 1
Position 1 represents the gift the month is presenting me.
I got the 7 of wands, which not surprisingly is coming up often in my readings.
Position 2 represents the challenge this month will bring me.
I got the 9 of wands, another card that has come up often for me lately.
Position 3 is the advice, or best course of action.
I got the Gaia, or World card.
The first thing I notice are the elements present, fire, fire and earth.
Second, the presence of a Major Arcana in the advice. How I handle things is going to make a huge difference.
Third, the images tell quite a story.
The 7 of Fire suggests this month will give me the opportunity to boldly and actively express myself. Focus, perseverance and timing will be important.
The image in the 9 of fire, is quite a contrast.
The person in it is relaxed, his attention totally inward. He expresses peace, calm, meditation, absorbing, receiving.
The 7 of fire is about releasing energy outside to create something.
The 9 of fire is about pausing to allow energy to come in.
The World in the advice reinforce the message. The key is integration and balance. It reminds me of the breath, inhale, exhale. The waves of the ocean coming to shore and retreating, over and over .
I take it that this month I will be quite busy and creative. I would benefit from being active, focused and confident.
The struggle will be to find a balance. I will need to carve time for relaxation, meditation. Ways to recharge my self and also find new inspiration.
Joyfully alternating activity with passivity, creating with receiving, will keep me strong and in balance. It will help me tune in to the energy around me and go with the flow. I recognize that being still is a challenge for me. I am naturally active, I like to take charge, I move fast.
Meditation is something I am attempting to do daily lately, but I struggle with staying still and quieting the mind.
All in all I would say they are beautiful cards with a clear message.
