I asked Spirit what message do you have for the world today to guide us towards our highest good?

Message to the World
May 9th, 2020 (18 The Moon, 09 The Hermit)

In these painful times, it is tempting to hunker down, burrow into our misery with a defeatist attitude.

The Queen of Wands is unabashedly comfortable in her skin. She embraces and flaunts both her shadow and her light. In the reversed position, we are being called to manifest our queen energy.
We might not be at our best, stuck inside for months. Without the distractions of our regular busy schedules, we’ve learned a lot about ourselves. It is time to own our qualities, good and bad, dress for court, and rally the troops to make a change. Reach out, organize, network.

Put your inner queen back on her throne. You’ve got this.

I asked Spirit what message do you have for the world today to guide us towards our highest good?

Message to the World
May 7st, 2020 (16 The Tower, 07 The Chariot)

I was looking at the Tarot Tableau by Thomas of the Hermit’s Mirror, and for the House of The Star, he prompts: How can I maintain hope in the face of uncertainty?

We’ve tumbled from the Tower, our routines and assumptions are in shambles. Life is uncertain. How can we maintain hope? The Star card asks us to open up to Spirit’s guidance, open up our intuition, be receptive to Divine guidance.

The Lenormand clarifier cards speak of making a transformative decision that has us tapping into our feminine qualities, qualities that are more flexible, adaptable, mutable, giving, collaborative, and nurturing.

Perhaps we need to surrender to the currents of uncertainty instead of fighting them, and see what we find when we mindfully navigate them as a team, helping each other. Perhaps we should take steps to nurture mother earth as well. Acting for the highest good, and witnessing kindness and service in others, renews hope. Where there is love, there is hope. When we take constructive action and empower ourselves, we have hope.

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?

Today, I called out to ALL of our spirit guides, ancestors, and guardian angels, and the messages coming in were so individual that I ended up pulling three sets of cards. Maybe one of them will resonate with you.

First Draw:
Message to the World
April 1st, 2020
The Clover + The Home + The Lady – Lenormand clarifiers

In this draw, I am interpreting THE LADY as representing something domestic. (It can also be our feminine side, ourselves if we identify as female or a significant woman in our lives). The Clover stands for good fortune, luck, and The House for our household and homes.

This first message shouts out to all of us who are starting to feel like being shut in is a stroke of good fortune. Our forced inaction is allowing us to rekindle domestic interests, or igniting new ideas for home-based projects. Spirit today encourages us in these pursuits, whatever they might be. It could be doing things together with our families, exploring new domestic talents like cooking, sewing, redecorating, or maybe launching podcasts and live streaming videos from our homes on topics that interest us. Good for us!

Second Draw:
Message to the World
April 1st, 2020
The Whip + The Ring + The Heart – Lenormand clarifiers

In this draw, I am interpreting The Whip Lenormand as representing “beating ourselves up about something,” The Ring as promises, and the Heart is our loved ones or something that we love to do.

The second message is to STOP beating ourselves up if today’s events are keeping us from fulfilling promises that we’ve made to loved ones, or to ourselves about interests that are dear to us.

We know best how to push our own buttons, and when we don’t fulfill promises that might be sacred to us or measure up to personal ideals, we come down harder on ourselves than others might. Especially when we are isolated, or scared, or feel powerless, it’s easy to self-sabotage.

Maybe we are unable to visit elderly family members who are in assisted living facilities despite vowing long ago that we would always be there for them. Perhaps we can’t take our children on the vacation that we promised them, or, even, had to cancel our wedding.

All fitness classes and facilities are closed, and maybe we just don’t have the space to continue at home, despite our best intentions.

Whatever it might be, this message is to forgive ourselves for these circumstances that are beyond our control. Stop wasting energy self-flagellating for things we can’t do anything about, and turn our focus on what we can do, instead.

Third Draw:
Message to the World
April 1st, 2020
The Bear + The House + The Dog – Lenormand

In the Nine of Cups, I always see all of those chalices up on the pedestal behind the figure as representing the man’s loved ones and emotional connections. He sits proudly in front of the display, saying, “These are my riches.” You will notice, too, that he is keeping an acceptable social distance from them. His arms are crossed in front of him. He is not touching, hugging, or breathing on them.

The Bear can represent protection. The House Lenormand, our household, our close friends and family. The Dog Lenormand, trustworthiness, loyalty.

This third message is to keep up the excellent work! Our shelter-in-place is helping to protect the people that we hold dear.
