Pick a Card: Your Reading for the Week

Posted by Donnaleigh on March 1, 2014 at 9:25 AM

Step right up! Pick a card, any card!

The randomly drawn Tarot cards you see are card BACKS to 3 different tarot decks. Which one gives you an intuitive "ping?" Be forewarned: the card image underneath may not match the vibe of the image on feeeeeeeel it. Feel what's "under." 

TIP: You may want to hover your hand over each one to see which one pulls you. Do you feel a pull? Or a warm spot?  Maybe you have a pendulum you can use. The card you pick will embody something energetic around you for the next week.

Once you choose a card and feel confident with your choice,

Decks shown:

1) Isabel Snail Arcana

2) Sun Conure Arcana

3) Fishy Tarot



All three tarot decks are by Beth Seilonen.

Two of our cards were Strength cards this week!

If you chose card 1 (Snails)

1) Isabel Snail Arcana, Devil Card

There will be some true temptations around you this week. You may find yourself attracted to something that you don't really need. You may want more, More, MORE! Is it something you already have too many of? Have you already had too many bites of it? What looks like you can't live without it? You already have all the coral you need, little snail. Why are you so attached to more?

Also, something that have bothered you in the past may come to surface this week and make you want to retreat back inside your shell. This is something that just won't let go, despite your attempt to scoot along without it. Don't be tempted to engage with what you already know has poisonous tentacles. Haven't you learned your lesson already? Let those jellyfish slip along past. Tempting as they may be to touch and poke, they leave a rash, and even salt water won't sooth that as fast as you'd like.

In the meantime, Isabel Snail suggests you have a little fun with something fun and NEW to eat (or do) this week. Try something you've never tried before. No need to overindulge, but ... if you're lucky ... you might just might find a new addiction!

"Lead me not into temptation; I can find the way myself."

Rita Mae Brown

If you chose card 2 (Birds):

Sun Conure Arcana, Strength

Sometimes keeping one's cool is not as easy as it looks. If you find the menagerie is poke, poke, poking you, hold back the howl and take a deep breath. Showing power over this annoyance may make you feel good in the short term, but it will have many more repercussions long after the feathers fall. This will take some good soul strength on your part to hold back and pretend to purr. Sometimes NOT doing anything takes twice as much energy as DOING something. You can do this... count to 8.....count to 8.....count to 8......

Soon the annoyance will pass onto another cat's head, plucking at their fur, and you'll be purring away like the strong tiger that you are, looking good with that purple lily on your head. Rowr! 

And, by the way, did you know that purple lilies are a symbol of royalty? True this! While any lily represents innocence, purity and beauty, combine that with the regal color purple once reserved only for royalty and you have a strong representation of majesty and honor. This is a suggestion for you to maintain your innocence and poise, and separate to the world who's The Majestic King or Queen, and who's the Royal Pain.

"Do you really think it is weakness that yields to temptation? I tell you that there are terrible temptations which it requires strength, strength and courage to yield to."

Oscar Wilde

If you chose card 3 (Fish):

Fishy Tarot, Strength

Ooo, you want it so bad. You know what it is you want. There it is. Your dream. The object of your desire: you've been pining over it. It is ju-s-s-s-s-st out of reach. How are you going to get it?

This is going to take a push from you, and you might have to get a little wet to get what you want. But as much a a cat like you may not like to swim, you CAN do this, and you will reap your reward. have to jump into the zone you've been avoiding, and perhaps leave the dignity on the shore for two seconds while you take that little risk. It won't matter whether you belly flop in the water or tip toe in one paw at a time, because you will still be closer to that goal than you would have been if you just stood there on the shore staring at it. Pining over it. You will have to push your comfort zone and do that one thing you don't like to get the thing you like.

Where will you be 8 months from now if you DON'T do it? Where will you be 8 months from now if you DO it? The same amount of time will pass either way, you know. You are the Great Activator of your timeline. You have what it takes ... so show a little muscle, throw in a dash of courage, and be willing to get a little messy on the way.

"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage."

Anais Nin
