Enrich Your Self-Love Practice Using Tarot Cards

Self-love is essential, but sometimes it’s easier said than done. For some people, self-love is an ongoing and arduous journey. And any support we can get in the self-love department is welcome.

One of the ways you can enrich your self-love practice is by using tarot cards. While both self-love and tarot are popular topics, you don’t usually see them together. But they should be. Tarot cards can deepen your self-love, and here are three simple, yet healing, tarot practices for your own self-love journey

Love starts with you

We all want to be loved. However, we usually expect this love to come from other people, and we forget that love starts with us. Of course, we should love one another, but when we think love always has to come from outside of ourselves, our understanding of love gets skewed.

For example, if you think you can only receive love from other people, you may think love is conditional and hard to get. What’s more, you may think that you aren’t worthy or deserving of love.

But if you believe that love starts with you, you believe that you don’t need to earn love. You give yourself love because you’re already worthy – just by being.

Another all-important reason why love needs to start with you is that how you love yourself is actually a silent cue to others about how they should love you. According to the Law of Attraction, where focus goes, energy flows.

Therefore, if you don’t give yourself love, you attract this lack of love from others. Instead of love, you attract disrespect, being taken advantage of, toxic relationship patterns and even abuse.

So, the first reason why love starts with you is that it’s your most precious responsibility to yourself. Secondly, it teaches others how to behave towards you.

Self-love creates a beautiful experience for you and everyone else in your life. But it’s easier said than done, and Tarot cards can help make it easier to love yourself.

7-day self-love tarot practice

The first way to use your Tarot is to simply ask it what you love the most about yourself. Then, draw one card. This Tarot card isn’t your answer. Instead, it’s a gentle prompt to help you reflect on yourself and answer your own question.

Spend a few minutes meditating on the card, and then journal everything you love about yourself for five to 10 minutes.

You might feel like you’re blowing your own horn. Or, you might have a hard time coming up with things you love about yourself. But don’t give up. Commit to this journaling practice and jot down whatever the card is that inspires you to write.

For example, Strength, one of the Major Arcana cards, represents strength, courage, and compassion. If you draw this card, think of the ways you are strong, courageous and compassionate, both with yourself and others. Then, love and appreciate these qualities about yourself.

Get inspired by self-loving cards

The first self-love practice involves drawing a card at random and allowing it to inspire you. But you can also be a little more intentional with your self-love tarot ritual.

In this practice, select the most self-loving and nurturing cards. Then, meditate on them and allow them to inspire you to love yourself. Consider including these cards in your self-love spread.

The Star

Rich in meaning, the Star shows a woman holding in each hand a bowl of water. The right hand (consciousness) pours water into the dry land. Her left hand (the subconscious) pours water into lush land. The Star reminds you that you have the ability to renew and find your purpose.

If you look closer, one foot dips into the water, representing her ability to listen to her intuition. Her other foot is solidly planted on the ground, showing her common sense. The Star encourages you to have faith in yourself.

The Empress

A symbol of fertility, the Empress draws on the fecund energy of Mother Earth to rejuvenate and nurture herself.

The Empress can help you recognize your own femininity and beauty, and also remind you of your own abundant nature and ability to create.

Temperance

Sometimes life gets the better of us, and we live in one extreme or another. We fall out of alignment, and things fall to the wayside. When it’s time to get back on the bandwagon, turn to Temperance.

With one foot stepping on the rocks and the other dipping into the water, she reminds us of the importance of being both grounded and going with the flow.

She represents moderation and balance. But perhaps more importantly: patience, which is a quality we need when we’ve disappointed ourselves and need to start over.

The High Priestess

The world is a busy and distracted place, and it’s easy to feel lost and wayward. We lose touch with ourselves and our inner knowing, feeling unfulfilled, depleted and disappointed with life.

The High Priestess is a silent strength encouraging us to turn away from the material world and turn our gaze inwards. What does your divine energy say? What is your intuition telling you?

Ace of Cups

In this card, your subconscious mind is represented by the cup. The cup is overflowing with your emotions and intuitive flow. Hovering above the cup is a dove, reminding us that Divine love passes through our subconscious mind to conscious awareness.

When reversed, the Ace of Cups represents self-love and repressed emotions and maybe a helpful card when self-love feels inaccessible or blocked.

The Queen of Cups

This introspective queen sits on the water’s edge, symbolizing emotion, spirit, and feeling, and she encourages you to come to the water’s edge, too. Here, the quiet allows you to honor your emotions, which originate from deep within you.

When reversed, this card suggests emotional insecurity or even an unhealthy dynamic of co-dependency. So, when you need to strengthen your emotional security, look to the Queen of Cups.

Remember, you have the ability to become more attuned to your emotions and what they’re telling you, and ultimately, to love yourself.

Tarot helps you become more self-aware

The first self-love practice uses tarot cards to inspire you to praise yourself for your beautiful qualities. The second practice instead gives you the opportunity to draw strength and inspiration from loving and nurturing cards.

This final self-love practice is an opportunity to increase your self-awareness. This, in turn, allows you to grow in love with yourself.

First, become centered and ask the Tarot deck a specific question. Here are some questions you can ask:

  • Why am I feeling _______?
  • What did this situation or this person make me feel upset?
  • What do I need to navigate this situation?
  • What would a friend advise me to do in this situation?
  • What do I need in order to heal _________?

Once you have your question, ask your Tarot deck. Then, shuffle the deck and draw one card.  Tarot cards are wonderful tools to trigger our intuition. So, instead of giving you an answer, the Tarot card will guide you to listen to your intuition and your own inner knowing.

Very often, you already have the answers within you, but we’re not sure where to look. Or, we’re not sure which voice is our intuition and which one is our ego (or, our fear-based mindset).

With the Tarot to guide you and point you in the right direction, you can decipher the voice of your intuition and inner knowing, and feel brave enough to listen to it. And with greater self-awareness, you can increase your self-love, too.

Tarot is a nurturing and gentle way to practice self-love. Whether you draw your strength and inspiration from The Star, The Empress or the quiet Queen of Cups, each one is there to support you in your own self-love journey.

How to Make Your Zodiac and Moon Signs Work for You

Zodiac and moon signs are a trendy topic. You can pick up just about any newspaper or magazine, and find a horoscope for your viewing pleasure. There are even more astrological resources available online.

And on the one hand, it’s wonderful that astrology is so widely accepted, but its popularity has also led to a lot of overreaching generalizations and vague information – information that we nonetheless accept as true.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the best way to use astrology. In fact, when you use astrology in this way, you limit yourself and make it more difficult to live an authentic life.

Astrology completes our narrative

People are narrative beings, and we like to explain our lives within the context of a bigger story. As it turns out, astrology provides the perfect solution for this inherent need.

After all, we live in a vast universe, where powerful forces surround and influence us. Astrology is one way to situate ourselves within this greater whole, and to give meaning to everyday living – even the moments that seem utterly meaningless. Astrology gives us a strong sense of assurance and connection.

However, it’s possible to take this cosmic significance too far. If left unchecked, it can lead to fatalism. That is when we think our fate and future is out of our control, and that what happens is a result of the stars and planets above us, rather than our actions and decisions here below.

In short, when we use astrology like this, it can create a limiting narrative.

Astrology is more complex than a zodiac sign

Back at the beginning of the 20th century, sun sign horoscopes were introduced into newspapers to increase sales. However, this has done a great disservice to astrology by whittling down an intricate and involved study into a couple sentences about each sun sign.

For this reason, many people know their zodiac (sun) sign even if they’re not into astrology, but there is so much more to astrology than the sun sign.

Your birth chart, for example, lays out the exact location of the sun, moon and planets, and their relationship with one another, at the exact time and location of your birth.

Together, all of this information is deeply meaningful and relevant. When analyzed and decoded as a complete whole, it helps to explain the many facets of your personality, including how you think and feel, what your strengths and weaknesses are, and things you are likely to enjoy or not.

However, what often happens is people don’t know and/or understand their birth charts. Instead, they focus on their zodiac sign, or even worse, only one or two key aspects of their sign.

For example, have you ever heard someone say the following statements before – yourself included?

“I’m like this because I’m a (insert Zodiac sign).”

“I’m such a Virgo.”

“I’m a Libra, so I’m just bad at making decisions.”

“I’m impatient because I’m a Sagittarius.”

There are several reasons why this sort of relationship with your zodiac sign can set you back rather than forward.

3 ways astrology can create problems in life

  1. Not taking personal responsibility for your life

Without a cultivated understanding of your horoscope, you end up with a vague and general narrative – something that could apply to anyone.

What’s more, we can cherry-pick certain aspects of the zodiac, keeping things that support what you believe, and tossing what doesn’t. In some cases, we end up using our zodiac sign as an excuse to not take responsibility.

  1. Matching your zodiac sign

If you believe you need to match your sign, you may censor your true self, or stop living authentically. When we believe we’re one specific sign, we think we need to fit that zodiac. As a result, we get stuck in a sign and cling to an identity that may not be accurate, instead of getting to know the truth of who we really are.

  1. Giving your horoscope too much power

Many people rely on zodiac signs to figure out what yoga poses to do, who to date, or even how to relax. Now, that’s not to say there isn’t helpful guidance in information like this.

However, it’s also easy to form prejudices and then project pre-existing assumptions and characteristics onto other people or even yourself. In short, we develop cognitive bias and see traits we’ve been primed to see, rather than what’s really there.

So, how can you make your zodiac and moon signs work for you? How can you make your entire horoscope a useful tool for authentic living? Let’s find out.

Astrology is a tool for timing

According to the professional astrologers, Ophira and Tali Edut, who are also known as the Astro Twins, “Astrology uses mathematical angles and is based on the time, date, and place of a birth or an event. It measures things down to the second!”

And because astrology is so precise, the Astro Twins believe it can be “An amazing tool for timing. For example, some periods are good for taking action around career or love, while other cycles are better times to do inner work, or take that steady paycheck.”

You can compare astrology to a weather forecast. For example, you may have a plan, but when you check the forecast and see that it’s going to rain, you get to choose how to continue. It’s similar to horoscopes.

For example, you may have a project or a life goal you want to pursue. Then, when you check your horoscope, you understand how the powerful universe is behaving and how you can use this energy in your favor. Rev. Colleen Lemma has weekly and monthly Angel Astrology videos that help to see the positive side of your birth chart.

Take the Void of Course Moon or Mercury Retrograde as two examples.

The Void of Course Moon (VOC Moon) lasts for a few minutes or even for a full day, and it occurs every couple of days. During this time, it’s a good idea to avoid starting or finishing major projects.

That’s because things may not go according to plans, or they just don’t work out as they’re supposed to. Instead (and if possible) use this time to continue researching and doing inner work. Once the VOC moon has passed, you can start or end big projects.

Mercury Retrograde doesn’t happen as frequently, however, it’s much more popular than VOC moons. During this time, communications and ideas tend to go astray.

But this doesn’t mean we need to stop communicating completely. Instead, knowing when mercury is in retrograde reminds you to be more clear. It also encourages us to be more patient and compassionate both with ourselves and with others.

Astrology as a self-discovery tool

Together, your sun sign, moon sign, ascending sign and the position of personal planets paint a beautiful image of you, with intricacy, shading, and nuances.

When you rely only on your Zodiac sign, you’re truly selling yourself short. For this reason, it’s a great idea to get a complete birth chart or even meet with a professional astrologer.

Knowing where the stars and planets were at the time of your birth can help affirm what you already know about yourself, and it can also explain different areas of your personality that you haven’t fully accepted yet.

As the Astro Twins affirm, “People have tons of free will, and it’s just about working with the energy of the planets, rather than against them. You’re never doomed.”

That’s because as powerful as stars are, they don’t force. They favor. So, they’ll indicate what your potential is, or what you can aim for, but they’re never intended to make you feel like a victim in your own life or to keep you stuck all because you’re a _______ (insert Zodiac sign).

Astrology helps you get into alignment

Obstetrician and gynecologist, Dr. Christine Northrup, M.D. is a women’s health expert and New York Times bestselling author of “Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom.” And yes, Dr. Northrup gives credence to astrology.

She teaches that “Astrology is about aligning with the forces that rule the moon, the tides, and the turning of the planets, and then finding your unique place within this system based on how the planets were lined up at the moment of your birth.”

The universe is already in alignment, moving in perfect synchrony – like a perfectly choreographed dance. We don’t have to watch and witness this dance. Stars and planets are not so condescending.

We, too, live in this big and beautiful world – this has been true from the moment we were born – a moment when the planets and stars were all in a very specific position.

When we understand our entire horoscope, we know our position within this dance, too. We also know the possible steps to take so we can move in graceful alignment both with our true nature and with the stars and planets.

9 Female Goddesses to Inspire You to be a Powerful and Loving Woman

For thousands of years, people have turned to mythological and spiritual figures for inspiration and guidance. And even though we are modern people living in the 21st century, the magic and beauty of goddesses is still alluring, uplifting and sometimes even life-changing.

If you’re searching for powerful women to inspire you, here are nine amazing goddesses who provide powerful feminine energy to those who ask. Click on each of their names for an image of the Goddess.

Artemis

Artemis is the Greek goddess of the hunt and moon. So, Artemis is often depicted carrying a bow and arrow, with a crescent moon resting on her head. If you’re searching for something in life, Artemis can help you stay true to your goals and reach them.

But Artemis is so much more than a huntress. She’s also the guardian of the forests, wild places, and women. She can help you navigate even your wildest dreams. After all, she knows the wilderness well.

Bast

Bast is an Egyptian goddess who is usually depicted as a cat, or as a woman with a cat’s head. And while women turn to Bast for many things, she is especially revered as a fertility goddess.

In ancient times, women suffering from fertility problems made offerings to Bast. If you have an affinity for cats and also want to focus on your fertility, Bast may be a good goddess to turn to.

Gaia

Gaia is either the personification of the earth itself or the goddess of the earth. According to Greek mythology, Gaia gave birth to all the gods. And with Gaia, you can see the earth as a nurturing and providing mother instead of an object to exploit.

That’s because Gaia is Mother Earth. Seeing life this way can also help you feel safe, protected and cared for. What’s more, you can draw on Gaia’s strength to tap into your own maternal energy.

Freya

Gracing Norse mythology, Freya is the goddess of love, beauty, sex, and fertility. But what makes Freya special is that she encourages a deep sense of self-awareness in women.

She especially wants you to see the beauty in all things, especially yourself. So, for women who struggle to accept and love themselves, Freya can be both gentle and powerful in guiding them to see their own worth again.

Idun

You’re probably familiar with the Biblical couple, Adam and Eve. But here, we’re talking about Idun and Eve – two women whose story revolves around a special fruit-bearing tree.

Eve ate the forbidden fruit and got cast out of the Garden of Eden. Idun also had a powerful fruit-bearing tree, which offered immortality to those who indulged, and tradition says Idun shared these special fruits with others.

Aging is inevitable, but Idun reminds us that we can retain a youthful spirit and experience fresh renewal anytime. Maybe we just need to trade the mythical apples for Vitamin C-infused oranges and face creams.

Lakshmi

Lakshmi is a Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity, which is why you may see her with gold coins falling from her fingertips. But Lakshmi isn’t just the goddess of financial and material wealth. She also represents spiritual abundance. Therefore, she’s a wonderful goddess to turn to when you want to overcome scarcity mindset and replace it with a more abundant and grateful spirit.

Ostara

This Germanic spring goddess represents the gentle dawn and fresh beginnings. In fact, her name and symbols, such as eggs and rabbits, were adapted into the Christian feast of Easter. For those women who need support to make it through a dark and difficult time, or for people who need to start over, Ostara can lead the way to where the light and new life is.

Parvarti

Parvarti is one of the many forms of the Hindu deity, Shakti, who represents the feminine energy, infusing all life.

The story of Parvarti is amusing and endearing. This determined and devoted goddess tried many tactics to win Shiva’s love. She even turned to solitude and self-mastery to win him over. Thanks to her steadfast love and devotion, Parvarti eventually earned Shiva’s love and helped him take pleasure in life again.

Therefore, Parvarti can be a wonderful mentor for when we’re having trouble opening ourselves up to the pleasures of life. She can also encourage us to continue to choose love even when it’s not always reciprocated, and when we’re not always rewarded for our efforts.

What’s more, Parvarti reminds us that it takes lots of love and devotion to embark on any spiritual journey and that it may take time for us to reap the rewards of our efforts. But like Parvarti, we can be patient and steadfast, too.

Aphrodite

Last, but certainly not least, this famous goddess needs little introduction. She has been depicted countless times over the centuries, and for good reason. This Greek goddess represents love and beauty. In fact, in Greek mythology, other gods thought her beauty could start wars and rivalries between her many admirers.

So, if you want to be more desirable and attractive, invoke Aphrodite. It’s a good way to own your beauty and sexuality with greater confidence.

Why You Should Love Your Soulmates and Let Them Go

Do you think you have to search long and hard for your soul mate? Most people do. And that’s because we tend to believe that once we’ve found our soulmate, we don’t have to look for anyone else ever again.

But this belief can make life harder and more painful for both you and your soulmate. Plus, it interferes with your soul mate’s true role and purpose in your life.

You Don’t Have to Find Your Soulmate

If you’re single, or if you feel like you’re settling for less in your relationship, you may be on the hunt for your soulmate. But when it comes to these precious individuals, you usually don’t have to actively look for them.

When the timing is right, you and your soulmate will naturally attract each other. And you can help this happen, not by searching for him or her online, or in every café and grocery store, but by working on being yourself.

You can do this by honoring your true nature and creating a positive energy. When you’re authentic and living true to your nature, you create the perfect setting for your soulmate to enter into.

You May Have More Than One Soulmate

Many people believe that you have one – and only one – soulmate. Unfortunately, this kind of mindset puts a lot of unnecessary pressure on both you and your soulmate.

Usually, people want a life partner to share their earthly life with. But soulmates are far more than life partners or romantic interests. What’s more, you can have many soulmates throughout your lifetime. And no matter when they show up in your life, they always play a very important role: you can think of them as unofficial spiritual teachers.

Technically, a soulmate can be anyone … your friend, family member, boss. A soulmate is simply someone you have lived another lifetime with; they are a part of your spiritual soulmate family. So, even if someone you meet is for sure your soulmate, it does not necessarily mean they are meant to be a romantic partner. However, it is highly likely that person is in your life for a reason.

Your Soulmate Fulfills a Spiritual Purpose in Your Life

A soulmate’s job is to help you move toward a higher state of consciousness. They do this by awakening us and challenging us to evolve spiritually. That means that some soulmates will have to teach you tough lessons before you both separate in your earthly journeys.

For example, if your energy is stuck or blocked, or you’re not living life to the fullest, your soulmate may come to you at this critical time and push you out of your comfort zone.

Soulmates play such an important role in our life, and because of this, they can be a part of a very emotionally-charged relationship. And whenever you experience so much with another person, it’s easy to believe that you’re meant to stay together forever.

But soulmates enter your life depending on your deepest spiritual needs. And knowing that can make it easier for you to release them once they’ve fulfilled their purpose in your life.

How to Recognize Your Soulmate

Recognizing a soulmate happens on the level of your deepest, innermost knowing. It’s a knowing that goes beyond your intellect or logic. You’ll feel a connection that’s perfectly clear, yet completely unexplainable to you. If you feel you do need assistance then the angels can help you.

For example, you may experience flashbacks as if you’ve spent time together. (And perhaps you have in another life.) You can also feel very in sync with your soulmate, and intuitively know what they’re thinking or feeling. You may even anticipate their needs or finish each other sentences. In short, you just get each other.

Love and Cherish Your Soulmates

Soulmates can feel like our Earthly guardian angels who make us feel incredibly safe, secure and protected. With them, we can be open and vulnerable. We can be ourselves. This is a rare gift in our fleeting world, and nobody wants to lose something so precious.

So, even if you love your soulmate deeply, try to recognize that this love shouldn’t be what keeps you together once your roles have been fulfilled.

This is how you can become too attached to your soulmate, and end up claiming them for yourself. But they’re not ours to keep, and keeping them can add a lot of unnecessary pain to your life.

Instead, we should cherish and love them without having any ownership or attachment to them. We should also thank them for the sacred role they’ve performed. Without them, we might never experience true love or evolve spiritually.

A Beginner’s Guide to the Tarot

The origins of Tarot cards has its roots in ancient cultures. There are various theories as to the origin of the Tarot but nobody knows for sure where it originated.  One thing that remains clear is that the symbolism and occult science of the Tarot have remained the same throughout the ages.   Many people who want to learn the Tarot become overwhelmed and don’t know where to start; so we created this short guide to give beginners the steps and symbolism necessary to begin learning how to use the Tarot.

Selecting Your Tarot Deck

The first step is to find a good Tarot Deck, but this can be a daunting task as there are literally hundreds of different tarot decks to choose from.  Each Different deck uses its own Art and interpretation of the symbolism of the tarot.  For a beginner,  your first deck should probably be the very popular Rider-Waite deck or one of its many clones. The Rider-Waite decks are the most popular tarot deck and most tarot books include a description of the symbolism of each card.  This deck and many other decks usually come with a small book that describes all the cards; which can be a helpful quick reference for beginners to start learning the interpretations of the cards.

Understanding How The Tarot Deck Works

Tarot decks are composed of 78 cards:  22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana.  In the beginning, you will want to learn the symbolism and story of the major and the minor arcana. Trying to learn all the cards can be overwhelming in the beginning and a lot of people have found it helpful to just pick a card each day and learn its symbolism.  We also have videos on our site explaining the cards that come up in your readings.

Major Arcana

The 22 cards of the Major Arcana can best be learned by understanding that they tell a story of our human condition and our journey to spiritual self-awareness and wholeness; with each card representing a stage on that journey.  The story is referred to as the Fool’s journey, and the Fool is represented by the number O, then the story unfolds as we move through the 21 numbered major arcana cards and the last card on this journey is the World, a card that symbolizes completion.

Minor Arcana

The Minor Arcana describes the people, events, feelings and circumstances we encounter on our personal “Fool’s Journey.  The 56 cards of the Minor Arcana are divided into four suits or worlds: Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles.  Each suit contains 4 court cards, the King, Queen, Knight and Page and 10 numbered cards.

Getting Familiar with Tarot Card Spreads

A “spread” simply refers to the particular pattern or layout of your cards as you do a reading.  There are many different types of spreads, with the 3 most popular being the Celtic Cross  Spread, the Three Cards Spread, and the 5 Card Spread. Each type of spread forms a patterned framework for a tarot reading, with each position of the tarot cards in a spread having a meaning or reference towards the overall reading. Below you will find a quick summary of the 3 Card Spread and the Celtic Cross Spread. Further detailed descriptions are located above the card in each reading on our site.

The Three-Card Spread:

This spread is good for yes or no questions and is very easy to do.

Card #1 represents the past/issues affecting the problem.

Card #2 represents the present/problem.

Card #3 represents the future/outcome.

 

The Celtic Cross Spread

In this spread, ten cards are spread in the form of a cross. The overall pattern of the cards indicates the situation you are seeking to understand and predict.

Card #1 reflects the present position, your primary and main concerns.

Card #2 is influence and reflects the concern and situation that is soon to come.

Card #3 shows what your goals are.

Card #4 tells you about your past.

Card #5 represents the influences of your immediate past.

Card #6 represents your immediate future.

Card #7 represents the factors or inner feelings that affect the situation.

Card #8 represents your external influences and people or energies around the situation.

Card #9 represents your hopes and fears around the situation.

Card #10 represents the final outcome.

The 6 Steps to Doing a Tarot Reading

  1.  Relax – Learning to relax before a reading helps connect you to your own intuition. You can start by taking a few slow deep breaths, visualize your stress leaving as you breath out; try to clear your mind and let go to the present moment in whatever way that works best for you. 
  2.  Clear Your Tarot Deck – Ritually cleansing your tarot deck from your last reading or from someone who has touched your deck is an important aspect of getting ready for a reading.   Start by connecting to your cards and lightly shuffling them a bit, then imagine a white light enveloping and bathing your cards.   This helps clear your cards while also helping you to connect more strongly with them.
  3.  Ask Your Question – While holding your tarot deck, ask your Question silently in your mind or out loud. Feel free to shuffle the cards a bit more, you can shuffle in any way that feels right for you.
  4.  Cut your Deck – Place your Tarot cards on the table in front of you.   Then using your left hand cut the deck in half and place the top half on the left; then start taking cards from the top of the right-hand pile. Some people like to divide the deck into three piles, and then take the cards from the top of the center pile.    Either way is fine, just do what feels right to you in the moment.
  5.  Lay the Cards out in a Spread – Over time you will learn a variety of different Spreads.  You will then use your understanding of the current question to determine the spread that you are going to use.  Start taking the cards from the top of the deck and lay them out in the proper order for the tarot card spread that you are using.
  6.  Interpret the Cards – When interpreting the cards it is best to use your intuition and trust your first impressions. When reading the cards be aware of the images, feelings, and sensations that arise as you start to interpret the card.  Combine your intuition with your understanding of the tarot cards symbolism to complete the reading and to obtain the answer to the question at hand.

Shades of the Aura and their Meaning

shades-of-the-aura-and-their-meaningDifferent shades of the same color can have differing meanings in an aura. We touched on the main themes of what aura colors are and what many of the colors mean in a previous article, but here we will discuss the shades of each color and their (sometimes very different) meanings.

Shades of Red Auras

Red is a very powerful aura color that is connected to the circulation system. It can be either attractive or repulsive.

Dark Red Aura

A dark red aura means you are well-grounded and very self-sufficient. You are able to survive in almost any situation. Strong-willed and realistic people commonly have these colors in their auras.

Cloudy or muddy Red Aura

A cloudy red aura (sometimes known as muddy red) is a sign of negative energy. It is usually a signifier of some deep-seated inner anger.

Brilliant Red Aura

This is the color of passion and sexuality. It is a sign of a high-energy individual who has a very competitive nature.

Pink Aura

Pink auras show an artistic quality in a person. It also shows sensuality and an affinity for the finer things. Psychically gifted people and those who have recently fallen in love also have pink in their auras.

Dark Pink Aura

A dark pink aura is a signifier of deceit and dishonesty. Immaturity is a common trait in people with dark pink in their auras.

Shades of Yellow Auras

Yellow auras pertain to someone’s life energy, or “chi”. They are commonly associated with intelligence, optimism, and an easy-going nature.

Bright Yellow Auras

Bright yellow auras show a fear of loss. This could be the loss of a spouse, job, good health, or control of a person’s life.

Pale Yellow Auras

These auras are a sign of latent psychic abilities or excitement about a new journey or path to enlightenment. They show optimism for the future.

Dark Yellow Auras

These show pressure to achieve goals. People with dark yellow auras are usually students that are on the verge of losing their passion for learning, or they may have already lost it.

Shades of Blue Auras

Blue auras are found in calm, collected folks and can show an intuitive nature, as well as an affinity for helping others. People with blue auras are the rock that others lean on for support.

Light Blue Auras

A light blue aura shows a truthfulness and serenity in your lifestyle. People with light blue auras are also excellent communicators.

Dark Blue Auras

Four Myths about Psychics

four-myths-about-psychicsThere are many myths surrounding psychics, but that’s simply because many of us don’t know the facts about this special profession. So, if you’re on the fence or confused about psychics, let’s look at four myths and why they’re false.

Psychics are Naturally Psychic

Psychics aren’t like geniuses in the world of spirituality, the way Mozart or Beethoven were geniuses in classical music. Instead, psychics train and learn, just like you and I. And like any other professional, psychics are regular people who have to practice and hone in their skills. For them, that means learning to tune into their intuition and to communicate with the spiritual realm.

Psychics Can Read Your Mind

Psychics are actually energetic and emotional readers. So, they raise their own energetic vibrations in order to connect with both your personal energy and the energies from visiting spirits or spirit guides. And even though they can read energy and emotions, it’s up to you to be open to their readings. A psychic will never force their way into your mind, and you can think of it as an opportunity to receive special guidance from the spiritual realm.

Psychics Know Everything

Psychics are definitely not omniscient like God. They’re actually limited people who can make mistakes, too. But they can certainly help us understand things about ourselves because they’re more attuned to their intuition than we are. Whereas we might be too distracted to hear the messages from the spiritual world, psychics practice listening and can share these messages with you during a reading.

Psychics Predict and Control Your Future

There are so many factors that shape and guide every decision we make, and it would be impossible for a psychic to predict all of them! And yes, while psychics might have more practice listening to their intuition, they would never want to control you with it.

Instead, they want to help you hear your own intuition better. Psychics are like compassionate channels for the spirits and divine beings who want to communicate with you. Psychics help them communicate with you by transmitting the insight and advice they hear. It’s not a way to control your future; it’s a way to help you in the present moment.

As you can see, psychics have so much to offer us, and it’s worth learning more about these special people who can really help us on our earthly paths.
