A new week brings its own set of opportunities and challenges. And a tarot card reading may be just what you need to better navigate whatever the universe has in store for you in the days ahead. Jackie Ortez, Reiki and spiritual counselor, says that when it comes to picking a card, you shouldn't overthink it. Just go with whichever card you are first drawn to.
In a traditional card reading, you'd look at the back of the cards, choose one, and then your cards would be flipped to reveal your choice, here with this online tarot card reading, we reveal your results below:
CARD 1: The Hermit
A journey of self-discovery has entered into your life. It’s like it came quietly and very naturally in, like a soft breeze. Every day you are learning more about yourself, your old patterns, what does and doesn’t work. Your self-love has increased and you are starting to honor your true needs. Don’t fret if you have found friendships shifting as well, it’s all for your higher good. Continue on this path, because it’s exactly where you need to be.
Your Action: Invest in some books to continue exploring the real you and learning where your true sensitivity comes from. Light a candle, mediate and focus inward. The more you become who you truly are, the stronger you will become.
CARD 2: Nine of Fire
There is a power deep in you that is being tested right now. It may feel like your world beliefs are being challenged by people who are close to you. Your words are being taken out of context and almost used against you in a way. This may be in work, home life or even with people you don’t really know. Stay strong in what you believe in. Understand that not everyone will agree or get where you are coming from and that is okay. It is essentially what makes us all unique and how the world needs to be in order to fit together. Let any comments roll off your back knowing that you own your truth.
Your Action: Use your compassion for good. Speak to people about what really means something to you and see how they react. Truly listen to the responses before responding, instead of gut reacting. And take care of yourself at the end of the day by practicing a little self care to relax your mind. Perhaps give yourself a little arm massage with a nourishing body oil.
CARD 3: Ace of Air
What is holding you back? There is something that has happened in your past that feels like it has clipped your wings. This situation is preventing you from starting something you really want. Whether it’s dating, looking for a new job, or moving to a new location, you keep getting so close to the edge of starting, but doubt rolls in and pulls you back. Enough is enough. It’s time to clean out your mind and get moving! The last thing you want to do is regret any time you consider wasted. Put on your big girl pants and go for it!
Your Action: Talk to someone about what you have been feeling. Whether it’s a good friend, therapist or healing session, you need to get these feelings out. Whoever you speak to, ask them to listen completely first. Sometimes all we need to do is have an ear to bend and talk ourselves through. If it helps you focus, consider writing down a few thoughts before you speak.
