I am doing a daily Tarot draw asking Spirit, what message do you have for the world today, what guidance, to help us manifest our highest good?

Message to the World
April 4th, 2020

The Nine of Wands reversed often represents someone who is holding on to ideas or premises long after they no longer apply to a situation, a soldier on his battlements who refuses to believe that the war is over, for example, or someone who fears change.

The Lenormand clarifier cards are telling us that the new and innovative solutions (Key + Child) that we are adopting to manage during the epidemic – Zoom conferencing, for example – are a source of anxiety for some of us (The Mice).

Already the level of anxiety that many of us are feeling is heightened. We are shut-in, and the world outside our homes poses life-threatening, invisible dangers. Our routines have needed to completely change. We are dependent upon skills that might not come quickly to us (especially those of us who are older). Through the years, I’ve seen people struggle with social media, using email, and learning how to work with online platforms. When I think about how trapped they must feel, today, by their fears of technology, my heart goes out to them.

I think this message has two parts. The first is to have some empathy for the level of discomfort those not born to smartphones, computers, and social media are experiencing.

The second message is to those of us who might be paralyzed by our conviction that we can’t figure out Zoom or Skype or Facetime. Spirit is confident that we can do this. Think of all the other challenges we have overcome in our lifetimes. We are only as limited as we believe we are.

Today is a good day to try. There is no penalty if we can’t figure it out right away, no rush. If we get stuck, make sure to breathe, remain calm, get a cup of tea or wine, and relax into the task. Treat it like a fun puzzle. If we can, have a friend or family member talk us through it over the phone.
