Tarot for the Week of July 29 - August 4, 2012
This card brings the experience of cold realizations, where you see people for what they really are. Yes, this is sometimes painful but it also makes it a good time to let go of the past and all of the old hurts and disappointments which usually come with relationships that weren't really healthy in the first place. This card can also signal the possibility that we will allow ourselves to be cut off from our inner voice and find ourselves in a spiritual void. Make a conscious effort to let go of negative relationships and messages (both external and internal).
The knowledge card tells us to learn to use our intuition and express our ideas and talents, taking time to remove obstacles and barriers which may present themselves. This is also a time of revelation, in which we will be able to see the true motivations of others and know whether or not they are as they've portrayed themselves to be. Wisdom has the capacity to either be stabilizing or tumultuous, and which way it goes depends upon the individual. You could find yourself highly interested in spiritual matters this week. Above all else, the knowledge card is a card of commitment to ourselves. Move past your upbringing and begin to honor the sacred within.
Part of this week's reading may make it seem as though this is going to be a bad week. While parts of it are not going to be easy, it definitely isn't bad. A great deal of how things turn out and feel depends upon how you perceive them. Just because that initial glimpse or surge of feeling isn't as we've always wanted it to be, or thought that it should be, the hard truth is always for our best in the long run. This will be a time of clarity...a time to see things and people for what they really are. Sometimes this can be very difficult to swallow and it may seem easier to dance around the truth to avoid conflicts and hurt which can sometimes come with the truth. The great thing about this reading is that the very first card assures us that we will have it within us to defend ourselves and stand by our values. Even though there may be painful realizations this week, we do not have to allow what we learn and see to consume us. Be strong and use your intuition...listen to that voice in your gut, which will steer you in the right direction, knowing that when the dust settles it will always be for the best when we honor ourselves. Avoid the possibility of going into a spiritual void as a result of disappointment in others when seeing them as they truly are this week by allowing your interest and curiosity in spiritual matters to thrive. Study something, read a book, spend time in meditation, etc. This week will pave the way for a better, more powerful time in which we can move ahead knowing that we are living our own truth.
