Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ March 2016
Dear readers, it’s time for the monthly Tarot Reading for the Collective, and it’s time to use the Dark Goddess Tarot by Ellen Lorenzi-Prince again. This is a powerful deck, and I think an extra bit of empowerment never goes astray. And so many clients have chosen to work with this deck this lately, out of the five decks I have on the tarot table. So the Dark Goddess Tarot it is: where every card is also a goddess, so it’s got double the power!
This month’s questions are:
- What are we hiding from ourselves?
- Who will take us into a clearer headspace?
- Who will help us confront the more thorny parts of ourselves?
- And who will help us embrace what we discover, so we are no longer fearful of who we are?
Like always, I’ll just let the cards speak to you directly once the question has been laid down.
1. What are we hiding from ourselves?
Six of Water (Cups) ~ Tefnut
My dears, you are so good at hiding your capacity for collaboration, for community action and for work without competitiveness. You do indeed know how to draw out the light in each other and be genuinely happy when another finds their stride, yet sometimes you forget this and trick yourself into being jealous.
You may be ignoring how you can be real and authentic for those around you who are struggling right now. You don’t have to be impatient with them, or force them to be ‘fixed’… you can sit with them and love them hugely, with the quiet hope that they will find their way through. Trust that they want to see you growing too. Your onward growth could be helping them restrengthen their relationship with life.
2. Who will take us into a clearer headspace?
Chariot ~ Ishtar
Come with me to boldly move forward, to cut forth and go deep. Ignore the distractions: they are not for you, they never were. If you must contemplate them, contemplate what they say about you and your own journey, rather than a projected fantasy.
Be resilient in your intentions and gather only the fuel you need for this next stage of life. Trust there will be another refuelling station before you run out of steam.
Know that if you trust in yourself, you will manifest the energy to hold people in that same strong space where they can be inspired to walk confidently on their own path.
3. Who will help us confront the more thorny parts of ourselves?
Liberation (Judgment) ~ Persephone
I will help you enjoy the darker spaces you inhabit, where you learn more about the complexities and intrigues of the human condition. I will remind you that while you may fall short of your self-expectations at times, there is wisdom to be found in your transgressions.
Through embracing your thorny aspects you are being more real with yourself, and becoming more whole. There must be more to you than the cheerful exterior. Don’t let people get away with thinking you’re overly sweet: you are so much more than that.
Judge only what you want to shift within yourself rather than what you think others must change in themselves. And if you must gaze fiercely at yourself, try your best to bring kindness in as well. Take refuge in the peace of the darker waters: the unknown doesn’t have to frightening.
4. And who will help us embrace what we discover, so we are no longer fearful of who we are?
Witch of Fire (Queen of Wands) ~ Cerridwen
I will bring your power to the table and demand you add your freakiest aspects to the mix. Draw deep on your experiences thus far, and find a way to gain understanding about even the most noxious of experiences you have moved through.
I won’t ask you to forgive, but I will ask you to get clear and move to a space where no one else owns any part of you. You are wholly your own person, and your own experience is yours. Your wisdom is your own and only you can make the bigger calls of your life.
Let the wise ones add to the mix, but know that even they may use the trickster to guide you, whether knowingly or not. Be open and armoured all at once. Vulnerable and cool in one breath. Be mysterious, be active. Be your own flesh. Be your best friend and your most ferocious ally, and hold yourself well.
