2019 Chaos Rally #44

In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we explore how having clarity within you about your desires will drive you forward in life despite fear or failure, bringing the victories you need. Read on for details!


This Coming Week’s Reading


CR-01-11-01-19The purpose of this Chaos Rally tarot reading is to take a look at the coming week and see in what way we can challenge ourselves to do better in regards to our overall wellness. I ask you to approach this as a fun brainstorming session of possibilities rather than me prescribing a course of action to you.

And again, in terms of wellness I want to point out that this applies to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the self. All four of these comprise the total sense of being and need to be taken care of in order to be well. As always, and I cannot stress this enough, be sure to speak to the appropriate professional before making changes to your care plan. This is especially true if my reading for some reason inspires a change in diet, exercise, supplements, or medications, or even raises a concern regarding to your health.

I’m not a specialist in any of these fields. My goal is to look at how to manage wellness in the presence and with the cooperation of your professional care team. Please keep this in mind when going over this reading.

Here is the image of this coming week’s reading.

CR-02-11-01-19

The Challenge: Five of Cups

Recognize what it is you are grieving or regretting and then releasing those feelings of loss.

CR-03-11-01-19Monday Button’s position represents the challenge you need to be working on at this time. Thus, what you need to be working on right now is found within the Five of Cups.

This card deals with loss, regret, and grief. As you can see in the image of this card, the serpentine dragon here is all alone and lurking about in the swampy water with a stormy night in the background. It reflects the troubled heart and how it has a way of worming around with those feelings.

The challenge presented here is to recognize what it is you are grieving or regretting and then releasing those feelings of loss. Drain the swamp in your heart space.

The Lesson: Six of Wands

Claim the little wins in life as the victories they are.

CR-04-11-01-19Grim Lee’s position represents what you need to be learning while working on your challenge. Therefore, your lesson at this time is found within the Six of Wands.

This card is about victory, triumphs, and pride. We see in the image here a winged fire dragon wrapping around a giant “V” to claim a large gem as his prize.

The lesson here is to claim the little wins in life as the victories they are. Allow them to spark joy in your heart. They do add up. Over time you will have a grand treasure trove of fulfillment.

There will be victories and triumphs ahead for you to come.

CR-05-11-01-19One loss in life isn’t the end of the world. Just because one thing didn’t go as planned, doesn’t mean something else later won’t work out. There will be victories and triumphs ahead for you to come.

The Inner Lie: The Chariot

You control the direction of your life.

CR-06-11-01-19Murphy Law’s position represents the false belief you need to overcome while working on your challenge. The inner lie at this time is revealed within the Chariot.

This card is about ambitious drive, control, and will power. Here we see a large, red winged dragon riding a chariot being pulled by two smaller blue winged dragons over a beach. The blue dragons are facing opposite directions in the image.

Too often when we’re not getting where we want to go, we will blame something outside of ourselves for it without realizing that usually we are the ones responsible. This is what the two blue dragons represent in the image.

When your behaviors are not going in the same direction as your deep desires, you will either not move forward at all or you will move in unexpected ways. We need to make sure that our deep desires and our behaviors are in alignment.

So this is the false belief to overcome in that we need to shift our loci of control from external to internal. You control the direction of your life.

Don’t allow an external loci of control to reinforce any feelings of loss, regret, or grief you may have.

CR-07-11-01-19Don’t allow an external loci of control to reinforce any feelings of loss, regret, or grief you may have. When you do this, you steer your behaviors away from your deep desires and you end up off course from your goals.

Your chariot is your body and you are the pilot. You have control. Not other people. Not your thoughts. Not your emotions. You always have the power to choose how you respond to everything going on externally and internally. Remain mindful of how you are choosing to respond and behave to whatever is going on.

Victory is attainable when you are aware of what you truly desire and then focus your actions on working towards achieving it.

CR-08-11-01-19Victory is attainable when you are aware of what you truly desire and then focus your actions on working towards achieving it.

If you aren’t really clear on what it is you desire or you aren’t being honest with yourself about it, you’ll find that your progress will be difficult and unfulfilling. Jobs will suck. Projects won’t work out smoothly. Getting out of bed isn’t exciting. If it doesn’t align with your soul’s deep desire in some way, it feels like a chore.

This isn’t about what you’re good at, but rather what makes you feel good. What lights you up, brings you to life, and gives you joy? What excites you regardless of the amount of time you put into it? What do you look forward to each day, every day? That is what your soul desires and somewhere in all of that is your purpose: your soul’s deepest desire and your greatest treasure.

When you focus on aligning your actions with your true desires, you’ll find you will have more to celebrate and less to grieve in life.

CR-09-11-01-19When you focus on aligning your actions with your true desires, you’ll find you will have more to celebrate and less to grieve in life.

Even when things don’t work out exactly as planned, more often than not, if you are in alignment with yourself you are still moving forward in some way. Failure means you’re learning and that serves as stepping stones to get where you’re going.

The Wisdom: The Moon

Everything we want in life is on the other side of fear.

CR-10-11-01-19Wise Toad’s position represents the wisdom to keep in mind as you work on your challenge. The wisdom you need at this time is found within the Moon.

This card represents fear, illusions, and the primal within us. See how this purple dragon coils back from the full moon high in the sky as it creeps low to the ground between the two starry pillars?

The best advice to keep in mind from this is that everything we want in life is on the other side of fear. In order to get it, we need to be willing to cross that threshold.

Until you overcome the fear of releasing this pain, you are unable to invite new growth in your life.

CR-11-11-01-19Sometimes we cling to the feelings of regret and grief because we are afraid of letting go of whatever it is we have lost. However, what we are really afraid of is the void and unknown that is opened up when we do release all that.

Understand that once we drain the swamp in our heart space, we create room for something new to come in. Until you overcome the fear of releasing this pain, you are unable to invite new growth in your life.

If you allow fear to stop you, the prize will never be yours.

CR-12-11-01-19The reality is, victory and achievement comes to those willing to push pass their fear. If you allow fear to stop you, the prize will never be yours. Achieving your goals are on the other side of that threshold. You have to cross it.

You can’t allow fear to take control of your behaviors and steer you away from your true desires.

CR-13-11-01-19The other thing to keep in mind about fear is that you can’t allow it to take control of your behaviors and steer you away from your true desires. You won’t get to where you want to be if you let fear have control of the wheel.

Conclusion

Having the clarity within you about your desires is what will drive you forward in life despite fear or failure and this will bring you the victories you need.

CR-14-11-01-19If you wish to get to where you really want to go in life, then you need to be really clear with what it is you truly desire. Once you have that you need to start working on releasing any grief and regret you of the past to make room to cultivate growth your present. Finally, to start achieving your goals you will need to push pass your fear and align your actions with what you truly desire.

Having the clarity within you about your desires is what will drive you forward in life despite fear or failure and this will bring you the victories you need.
