In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we explore developing a trusting relationship with our heart space to find the gifts that spark our soul. Read on for details!
This Coming Week’s Reading
The 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.
The Challenge: Ace of Wands
When you incorporate your gifts into your daily life you find purpose, meaning, and fulfillment.
In the image of this card we have a pair of hands receiving a burning wand charged with the active energy of Mars. This is courage, confidence, passion, and assertion that comes from the soul within us.
You have been gifted with something that keeps the spark of your soul alive and bright. The challenge is not only knowing what your gifts are, but to bring them into your daily lives. When you incorporate your gifts into your daily life you find purpose, meaning, and fulfillment.
The Lesson: Eight of Wands
If you know where you need or want to be regarding your goals, don’t delay.
These wands in this image are moving swiftly on a fixed path. On one end it almost looks like their rocket propelled, while on the other end the tips are glowing as if they’re being guided.
The lesson here is if you know where you need or want to be regarding your goals, don’t delay. Take those opportunities as soon as they arise. Don’t miss your shot because of hesitation.
Your true gifts won’t just spark your soul, they will also drive you.
Your true gifts won’t just spark your soul like the image in the Ace of Wands, they will also drive you like the image in the Eight of Wands.
The Inner Lie: Strength
You need to be willing to have the endurance to meet people where they are at and put the work in on their level to move forward.
The image here shows a woman with a tamed lion for a companion. Taming a lion doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a long time, a lot of patience, and a ton of work to build the rapport and trust needed for that kind of companionship.
Too often we believe we can just swoop in and overpower a situation to get it done right away, thinking this is strength. What ends up happening is we are met with resistance and we are lucky if progress is made at all.
Instead, you need to be willing to have the endurance to meet people where they are at and put the work in on their level to move forward.
Your gifts will give you the strength and endurance you need in life.
Your gifts will give you the strength and endurance you need in life. Life is chaotic and challenging at times but when you are walking in your purpose and using your gifts daily, it becomes easier to keep going despite all that. Your purpose and gifts become your lion.
When you know exactly where you’re going, you need to be willing to endure the journey to its completion.
When you know exactly where you’re going, you need to be willing to endure the journey to its completion. This also means not entertaining those that would hinder your path. Yes, you do need to have patience and compassion for people but don’t put your life on hold for others.
You need to be willing to embrace the path that is meant for you.
You need to be willing to embrace the path that is meant for you.
The Wisdom: King of Cups
Remain aware of how you feel at all times, but not to get lost in them.
Kings represent the mature masculine within the court of the tarot while cups represent the watery flow of emotions. In the image of this card we have a king sitting comfortably at the water’s edge beneath the view of Saturn, the planet of restraint. He has one foot in the water and one on the steps, as though to feel the current but not lose himself in it.
The wisdom here is to remain aware of how you feel at all times, but not to get lost in them. You always have the choice in how to behave in response to those feelings.
You know when you have tapped into your gifts by how you feel.
You know when you have tapped into your gifts by how you feel. There will be joy, energy, peace, comfort, and a sense of rightness to it as you do it. It won’t matter to you how hard or challenging it is, you will still feel this inside you.
While you’re on your path, you will feel free like you’re flying.
When you have found your purpose and path, you will feel a sense of urgency to be on it. You will feel a need to be doing whatever it is you need to do. Anytime you veer off it, you’ll end up feeling agitated, restless, or unwell. However, while you’re on it you will feel free like you’re flying.
As you learn how to master your behaviors in response to your emotions, have compassion and patience with yourself.
As you learn how to master your behaviors in response to your emotions, have compassion and patience with yourself. It takes practice and time. Identifying feelings, allowing them to flow, and choosing how to respond is a complex art. However, once you have tamed your heart space in this way, you become your own lion and find greater strength.
The key to finding the gifts that spark your soul which lead to your true purpose in life rests within developing a trusting relationship with your heart space.
Explore how you feel as you perform various tasks through the day. Experiment with new activities to see how this makes you feel. Meet new people. As you do all of this, pay attention to what feel true to you and what honestly energizes you. Spend time alone if you need to in order to gain clarity on how you feel about things. Your soul knows where you need to be and what you need to be doing. Trust it.
