June 15-21

 

Self
Who I Am

You prefer to show the side of yourself that conducts life with order and precision this week, so that you may attempt to give your best to others.

 

Possessions
What I Own

It’s okay to bask in the sun and enjoy your new acquisitions, particularly those for which you managed to bargain a fair price.

 

Discovery
How I Learn

Speaking up in a timely manner, i.e. sins of omission may be a bit of a challenge for you this week. You may not be able to deliver those words like truffles on a pillow, but they do need to get out of your head.

 

Family
My Kinship Connections

Focus on the family may come as a mixed bag this week. You’ve led off holding too much against any one person. While you have a high regard for the traditional family unit, you struggle emotionally to fit in at times.

 

Creativity
How I Express Myself

It’s a good time to break out a new game, purchase a phone app, or challenge yourself in some new recreational way. You’ll enjoy this.

 

Health
My Body, Mind, & Emotions

Some of the situations that test your patience, perseverance, and coping skills this week are bred out of general disorganization and vague directions. If you can clear the playing field and put some things in order, chances are these situations will diffuse.

 

Partnership
Who I Share With

This may be a week where idealism in relationships leads to disappointment. If your partner can’t actively and wholeheartedly join you in your next venture, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re out.

 

Transformation
How I Change

There’s an energetic surge of initiative this week for do-overs, makeovers, renovation, or simply remaking or redefining goals, events, structures, or circumstances. You may notice it trending all around you.

 

Spirituality
How I Connect

It holds that you’re likely to enjoy the stimulating banter and debates around worldly affairs, foreign interests, or the latest gab in social media this week. These discussions could go either way—stacking up to support each other in tandem, or scattering to the wind.

 

Career
My Livelihood

You sense the need to reevaluate your vocation this week because you are experiencing some slow days at the table. You need more personal stimulation and activity. There also may be a breakdown in communication, as well.

 

Vision
My Goals

It’s hard for you to feel totally self-satisfied this week, especially if you sense your friends are not in your camp. You find out just how much security you seek from your relationships.

 

Sacrifice
How I Surrender

If you rank the imperfections of others and place them on a growth chart, remember also to render your own shortcomings in the mix. Accepting the mistakes of the whole is harder to do, yet more revealing than pointing the finger at a single individual.

These physiological and psychological patterns are posted here for your guidance. Understanding the patterns and cycles that influence you daily will help you live life more satisfactorily and serenely.

June 8-14

 

Self
Who I Am

You may need to arrest or even leave behind a tendency to submerge yourself too deeply into others’ concerns. A big part of stepping back is identifying where your life scripts converge, allowing the other person to follow the fork in the road you wouldn’t take.

 

Possessions
What I Own

You are able to strike a bargain this week for something you’ve wanted to own for awhile.

 

Discovery
How I Learn

The concepts you’ve pieced together in your head are difficult to put into words. You know what you want to say, but saying it is another matter. Putting your words on paper or practicing them in front of the bathroom mirror will help.

 

Family
My Kinship Connections

Family matters can benefit from practically tackling those bad habits that grew out of early childhood duress. Learning and trusting healthier coping mechanisms along the way will take you there.

 

Creativity
How I Express Myself

It’s time to plan the next office party, family reunion, stimulus program or business summit. Your energy is cued for it this week.

 

Health
My Body, Mind, & Emotions

Pay attention to new or incoming information about medicine or health this week. It could factor into your life immediately or in the near future.

 

Partnership
Who I Share With

Restlessness overrides satisfaction this week, when it comes to fostering your love for a partner. Perhaps you don’t share the same goals, after all.

 

Transformation
How I Change

Certain serendipitous, synchronized, or coincidental events are compelling your attention this week. Whether you call these signs and wonders or note them as simply fortuitous, pay attention to what they teach about transformation.

 

Spirituality
How I Connect

Whether or not you’re an enrolled student, the energetic currents this week are all about steadily acquiring an eclectic database of truths from various resources throughout your life experience, in order to further your emotional growth.

 

Career
My Livelihood

It’s important to you that you receive even the smallest of kudos this week, especially for being able to think on your feet.

 

Vision
My Goals

You will make some new acquaintances this week who are likely to become long term or even lifelong friends.

 

Sacrifice
How I Surrender

Role play isn’t a bad idea when it comes to changing your ideas about others. You need to attempt to stand in their shoes for a bit.

June 1-7

 

Self
Who I Am

Criticism may come in shades this week. Fine discrimination need not lapse into petty criticism. You know the difference. Make it count.

 

Possessions
What I Own

It feels good when the checking account balances, and this week, balancing is the prominent feature. You can also strike a bargain with others, which will come in handy.

 

Discovery
How I Learn

Emotional intensity or drama around you does not necessarily have to divert your attention or confound your ability to clearly communicate or concentrate. A short walk or diversion can put you back in touch with your original train of thought.

 

Family
My Kinship Connections

Changes, especially surrounding childhood home structures may prove upsetting this week. It’s more about what didn’t go well then than now.

 

Creativity
How I Express Myself

Approaches to anything at risk this week are likely to bring up automatic negativity, over-analysis, and stone-cold responses. Major decisions along these lines need to wait.

 

Health
My Body, Mind, & Emotions

Not knowing what you can count on could give you physical symptoms this week. A little unpredictability makes life interesting, even exciting, but you need to comply with your own personal limits.

 

Partnership
Who I Share With

Your own idealism about what you would like your love relationship to look like may push you toward a tendency to sacrifice too much. Martyrdom does not work in partnerships.

 

Transformation
How I Change

You’re the one who sets out to explore things unknown this week; it’s not only a matter of initiating the search, but also guaranteeing you don’t lose the credit when you mention it to others.

 

Spirituality
How I Connect

It’s important that the areas of study and things you set out to learn, whether philosophy, foreign languages, cultural histories, or politics, carry a practical application to where you are right now. Any incongruence is likely to be filed away for later use.

 

Career
My Livelihood

You may find yourself trending toward taking a second job, a new pastime, or training for a second profession, fueled by a need for restoring your sense of autonomy and independence.

 

Vision
My Goals

Reminders of how much friends can become like family will come up this week. You may experience the closeness of blood bonds or the friction of unsettled familial disputes.

 

Sacrifice
How I Surrender

Who am I and what am I capable of? What am I willing to give up? Where do I want to go with this? These questions merge with events and circumstances in your life this week.

Tarot Symbols & Meanings May 1

Tarot Symbols and Their Meanings

A richer way of connecting to your soul’s purpose and to the Divine within you is through symbolic language. Sometimes symbols materialize in a very timely way to underscore a bit of guidance that has already been nudging its way into your life. Symbols can be life-altering when they present with such clarity, you absolutely know what you must do or how you must do it. Other times we carry symbols with us for awhile, unaware how much they are deeply ingrained within our personalities and connected to our individual choices. Symbols are around us constantly. You may see hundreds of symbols daily without consciously acknowledging them.

“Truth did not come into the world naked, but it came in types and images.”

The Hierophant

 

20120109_robot_tarot_hierophant_by_chimerapathogen-d4luyab - CopySpiritual Traditions

In the traditional Rider-Waite and older tarot decks, The High Priest, or The Pope, is the primary figure, later coined as the Hierophant. While the Emperor concerns himself with the establishment of social order, the Hierophant focuses on the commencement, recording, and maintaining of spiritual traditions. Ceremonies, sacraments, sacred rites and clerical initiations are all part of his personality.

Hence the Hierophant came to represent a figure who might be a teacher, or one in institutional authority via churches, schools, companies, or institutions. There is always a role present concerning conformity—either too much or too little, and the struggle the Hierophant himself may have in remaining open to new outlooks while he lays his solid spiritual groundwork. Sometimes it represents accepting an alternate interpretation while staying within the confines of a certain educational framework. In seeking knowledge, one may not always arrive at the truth in the same way.

The ability to pass on these rites in their finer forms imply the need for formal education, esoteric institutions, and iconic order. The Hierophant speaks for all the spiritual and educational underpinnings we have developed in our societies: schools and churches, institutions—or the outer ways we have established for training ourselves to find inner truth. Whereas the High Priestess is about internal intuition and an innate knowledge that simply is, the High Priest disseminates formalized beliefs we exactingly arrive at by cataloging them into certifications, licenses, and church doctrine.

This symbol shows up when the energy surrounding an event involves due process or conventional boundaries, or the question whether or not to take such an orthodox approach. Instead of being allowed to be innovative, you may be called to adapt to an existing set of beliefs or systems for the time being, to do what is expected of you. There may even be wisdom in following established social structures; challenging the status quo at that time may prove counterproductive for all.

For those on an alternative spiritual path, this symbol may at times bring a scowl—but its meaning is not entirely devoted to rigid and outdated dogma. The Hierophant speaks more about a vehicle: a way to carry historical beliefs and practices forward in time. His is not necessarily only a stifling influence.

Family Traditions

Some family traditions, for example, are enjoyable—and not so much from the traditional display of the experience as its underpinnings: the sentimentality that can percolate from the experience. If we find a nugget of truth or a takeaway that significantly shifts our world view—whether we maintain that viewpoint long term, or later release it—the memory of these experiences is stored as “family” in our emotional body. The takeaway emotions are carried forward at a molecular level regardless of the stolid structural events that may have prompted them.

Numerology

The Hierophant is the fifth calling card in the deck. In numerology the number five denotes freedom from constraints, or freedom-seeking behavior. At first glance this may seem off, while we think of the High Priest as more static and confined. Other interpretations associated with the number five seem to ring true, however, such as the intense focus on intellectual and scientific logic, as well as the zeal to arrive—something we have certainly observed in religious fervor and persecution. Fives are typically freedom seekers who are not there yet, and most likely going about it in pendulum fashion, from apathy to avidity. Moderation can be a difficult lesson to learn with fives.

The Hierophant’s chief Zodiac being Sagittarius, his is a sign that usually enjoys searching for deeper, hidden matters, and, to some extent, the truth. There is always an urge to connect with a larger order and community while seeking this truth, which could either help or hinder its discovery and preservation.

Group Synergy

While we have ample proof that effective group efforts can promote powerful synergy, entrainment, and provide enriching experience, this card reminds us that groups, too, can become stifling. At what point you see your part in a group as too restrictive is the moment you need to start to trust your own individuality—because, if you’re looking for something innovative or free-spirited, it is not here.

The card may also show up when it is beneficial to join a group or group effort. It may be as simple as joining a gym. It may involve accepting that the group way of thinking or educational opportunities at hand will motivate you to take the next large step in your journey.

The Hierophant also points to generations of development within our cultures: that which lays the foundation for many of our innermost beliefs, even our own sense of what is obedient and what is not. He guides us with a well-christened belief system, one more likely established before our physical birth; for as we know, most societies must build these iconic systems over hundreds of years.

If being part of a group continues to create enriching experiences for you, then continue. But keep in mind that group synergy is not necessarily conscious oneness. Om consciousness and at-Onement with the whole of everything is not the energy of the Hierophant. Although group synergy is powerful, it’s not the same as conscious wholeness.

Group synergy, entrainment, or mass Law of Attraction all carry the idea of receiving and cultivating ideas in groups—the souls we have chosen to travel beside in this lifetime. Though we may also download many seeds of enlightenment that can only resonate with us individually, we must realize that many of our ideas and attitudes are ultimately shaped by those around us.

Workplace Regulations

In a work setting, the Hierophant leads us on an exploration of company rules, structure, and executive order. The establishment exists to preserve the service offered. If the executive level is a healthy one, its regulations will trickle down to the worker bee skill level and the final product(s) offered. From a employment standpoint, if we want to be part of the team, we must first learn to play by the rules, because the rules are in place to support our skill set. On the other hand, if you know someone has broken a company rule for a good, even right, reason—it may be time to reevaluate the validity of the company rules, how they support its entire structure, and whether or not they continue to be valid.

Learning the rules and conventions of a system doesn’t mean you have to be a slave to them. Ultimately the rules must change, and they exist to support your development as long as they work. When you master the rules, you are no longer enslaved by the rules. They become second nature, to protect and produce, until it’s time for new ones.

Health Systems

As our bodies age and undergo exposure from life, the rules about how they function change. Perhaps we find ourselves in a situation where we feel better when we take our medications as prescribed, but we also listen to the feedback system of our bodies. In our bodies, our organ systems and their energies work intimately together as a group. You can’t isolate one symptom and find the root cause of the disease, because an entire system is behind the process.

Blessing

Ultimately we must interpret the Hierophant’s total energy with the view that his right hand is raised in benediction, or blessing. He is offering a blessing akin to many Renaissance artistic representations of the iconic Christ Pantocrator.

He may also represent those that appear in your life to help you: a psychotherapist, counselor, priest, spiritual mentor, financial adviser, guide, or trusted friend to whom you can turn for wisdom, knowledge, and blessing.

Christ_Pantocrator_mosaic_from_Hagia_Sophia_2744_x_2900_pixels_3.1_MB - CopyThe Benediction

This gesture, in which Christ’s first two fingers and thumb are typically extended and his third and fourth finger are closed, is among his most frequently occurring hand gestures in Christian art. It is most commonly seen in iconic artwork representing the Christ Pantocrator, or Christ Almighty. The sign emerged as one of blessing in early Christian and Byzantine art, continuing through the Medieval period into the Renaissance.

The benediction is most frequently seen in iconographic images of Christ like the one above. This image shows the beatific sign with the thumb closed over the palm rather than open. With the thumb opened, the three open digits represent the Holy Trinity. Closed represents the dual nature of Christ as man and God. It’s important to note that this gesture is always made with the right hand, the hand with which one blesses.

The gesture originated with Roman art, a signal to indicate one was speaking. It gained popularity as a Christian symbol shortly after Constantine’s issue of the Edict of Milan in 313 AD. This edict allowed Christians to practice their religion freely without threat of persecution.

Uncommon Tarot Meanings:

‡ Stuttering or disturbed speech patterns because of dogmatic intimidation.

‡ The issue comes with being caught in a hierarchical system.

‡ The current social construct is out-of-date.

‡ Conventional ideas may work this time.

‡ Developing a new order or routine will bless you.

“Rely on nothing that you would not find comforting
to your utmost blessing of thought.”

May 22-31

 

Self
Who I Am

Opportunities are ignited this week by your willingness to try new things and/or create those new situations yourself. It feels good to stand back and be confident about what you’ve ushered in.

 

Possessions
What I Own

It’s time to sell—mainly to release the frustrations you’re feeling about maintaining certain items you don’t use or need. The hardest part is realizing you are no less secure without them.

 

Discovery
How I Learn

You have a stronger awareness about your own needs for companionship, and why. In some of this you will need to leave behind the attitudes of your own individuality.

 

Family
My Kinship Connections

Introducing even a small fountain or improving your water supply in your home will calm some nerves. Don’t let your confidence be undermined by negative emotions. Fearful motives you think you see in others could be imagined, or not quite on the mark.

 

Creativity
How I Express Myself

It’s a great time to attend a large recreational or sporting event, but you may not be willing to go for front-row seats. Others who enjoy your company might not understand the reasons behind your self-denial.

 

Health
My Body, Mind, & Emotions

Changes in yours or another’s health may impact your ability to complete your week’s agenda or your bucket list. It can be about releasing old emotional structures of support and approaching the situation with more humility than you’ve demonstrated in the past.

 

Partnership
Who I Share With

The issue is expressed affection to those outside the partnership, and how much. One of you would like to stretch the boundaries a little.

 

Transformation
How I Change

You may be tempted to turn away from expressing your desires to a potential lover this week, and look instead for your sense of oneness in shopping or possessions because of disconnection sexually or feeling sexually inadequate.

 

Spirituality
How I Connect

It’s a blip on the screen of total existence, but “getting there” can seem to move in slow motion this week, with several impediments to boot. Take a deep breath; you’ll be back to your regular pace in no time.

 

Career
My Livelihood

The idea of taking the office for a walk in the park, returning to our roots, even a virtual trip outdoors or introducing a microcosm of the wide open into your work space is a great plan this week.

 

Vision
My Goals

If others share your interests and goals, it makes it easier for you to assert your ideas and feel comfortable taking a leadership role. If you’re not feeling confident about this, don’t try to multitask your way around it. Evasive and off-topic behavior won’t help.

 

Sacrifice
How I Surrender

When you place your intuitive mirror up to others, you very often “see” yourself. Recognizing your own beauty will allow it to be recognized in others.
