These are meditations that have to do with the cards, or just general centering techniques
~Today we go through the 3 of Wands Meditation, allowing us to step into the card and develop our own experience of it. ~ This is the second installment of the Weekly Tarot Card. You can read the first installment, ‘Observation and Description’ here….
While we develop our understanding of each card, it’s important that we really try and get into the card itself.
Today we will work to ground the dancer in the 2 of Pentacles through meditation. This is your opportunity to delve into the card and explore what it means to you. What you pick up through this meditation is your own personal experience that will contribute to your personal understanding of the card.
The suit of the Swords resonates with ‘I think.’ Spend time thinking about your experience, about the figure in the 2 of Swords. Look at your own card, and consider why it is she can’t put down the swords.
The focus of the 2’s is union, harmony and balance. The element of the Cups is Water, and for this meditation, we’re going to be focussing on how the fluidity of Water, and the parallels we can draw between it and us. You can read more about the actual element itself in tomorrow’s post on Water, the Cups, and the Number 2.
The focus of the 2’s is about union, harmony and balance. The element of the Wands is Fire, and for this meditation, we’re going to be focussing on how Fire nourishes us, and what it does to build union and balance. You can read more about the actual element itself in tomorrow’s post on Fire, the Wands, and the Number 2.
Today we will step into the shoes of the Magician, and experience the card’s energy and hopefully develop a connection between our current self and the card.
It’s been said that when ou write (or speak), it’s forcing all your thoughts that are floating about you to organize and come through one funnel. It forces you to put the thoughts into order in order to bring them forward into the outer world.
Having spent your time with the Ace of Swords, the Ace of Cups, the Ace of Wands, you have the passion, the know-how, the love to bring into fruition a physical product. On each coin is a five-pointed star. While it might seem that Earth is the lesser of the elements since it represents a more base learning, it is the physical representation of the other elements coming together.
In order for our ideas to be heard, we must communicate with them. In order for us to understand our ideas, we must have good comprehension. Understanding the dual nature of how we communicate, how we understand, and the ideals we hold to be true can determine how our reality is shaped, and how we influence the world around us.
I’m beginning to do things a little differently, dividing up the weekly card into smaller segments to make the information more digestable. You can read Monday’s exercise and introduction Here, and you can read all about my weekly schedule regarding the weekly card here….
As I’ve mentioned before, a new deck will be blank, while a gifted or inherited deck will have the previous handler’s energy in there. Hopefully it will all be good energy. If it’s not, you’ll generally find a deck that immediately gives negative readings or is difficult to shuffle—cards will pop out all over the place, they won’t stay lined up, etc. Cards can be surprisingly characteristic and show their dislike.
A regular study of tarot is only going to improve you as a reader. By tapping in and meditating with the cards, you’re bringing your new experiences with you and adding them to your understanding of the cards.
