Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • As I look at this image I keep hearing Pink Floyd’s lyric playing in my head – “Tear down the wall”. Let’s face it, on many levels our nation has become calcified. We’ve lost that progressive, rebellious edge that made us so creative and independent. Instead we mourn what we perceive as lost or give up our civil liberties in pursuit of the illusion of security. I’m stuck in this same loop in my own life. I may not like all the changes going on right now, but change is inevitable. It’s time to move past that on both a personal and national level.
  • Focusing on what has been lost and looking down or backwards prevents us from seeing the opportunities that await up ahead. Before new structures can arise, the old, outdated ones must be demolished. Let it go.
  • Once the outdated, the useless, the unhealthy has been cleared away we are given the chance to see what remains and start over with healthy stock. Farmers and ranchers know that sometimes culling is necessary to improve the overall health of the herd or fields. Maybe it’s time for some culling in our own lives. Get rid of the weeds so the healthy plants can flourish.

Tarot Hunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • While child-like faith and belief in oneself are often beneficial, sometimes making decisions without seeing all the facts can just be foolish.
  • Deliberately veiling one’s eyes to reality can lead to the inmates running the asylum.
  • Sometimes things must fall into the realm of the absurd before we can see what is right before our eyes.

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Deciding on charitable giving based on benefits to you is self-serving and self-centered. Donating money or resources in such a calculated manner is not generous or humanitarian, it’s egotistical.
  • Accepting aide and succour can be a hit to one’s pride and ego but open your mind and realize that everyone has found themselves on the receiving end of generosity at some point. In ways both small and large, we cycle through giving & receiving in life.
  • Using ideology as a basis for altruism can lead to unexpected and unintended consequences. Supporting charitable institutions that reinforce your beliefs is one thing. Trying to coerce or force them into submitting to your mandates as a condition of your donations is another.

Tarot Hunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Focus on the help and support necessary to provide aide to those in need; give the excessive verbiage a rest.
  • Hold out your hand if you need assistance. People can’t help if they’re not aware of the need. They also tend to relax their judgementalness in times of crisis.
  • Although logic and rationality are important, in times of trouble or crisis (to quote Paul McCartney) let it be. Help those in need through those rough spots and then work together to create a plan to prevent such situations in the future. Don’t let politics get in the way of human decency.

 

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Resisting dramatic upheaval, especially of a societal nature, may allow the status quo to be maintained but can also lead to stagnation.
  • Societal changes can be frightening and overwhelming but fighting it only prolongs the inevitable.  If we are a truly inclusive society, a place at the table must be set for everyone.
  • Sometimes in order for all to enjoy the “good life” current mindsets and attitudes, the status quo, must be torn down.

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Fear of new ideas and ways of communicating limit your worldview and blunt your creative energies.
  • Self-doubts and inner demons can undermine your creative spirit. A negative internal dialogue douses enthusiasm faster than a bucket of ice water.
  • New creative endeavors and projects start within. If you’re not listening to your soul, you may find it difficult to tap into that fire.

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Moving forward requires seeing thing clearly. Make sure to remove your blindfold or you may stumble more than necessary.
  • Strategic retreats are often beneficial and crucial to further growth. Don’t let yourself be blocked from seeing the truth in your current situation.
  • Wariness and guardedness can be effective defense mechanisms. They can also prevent you from seeing opportunities and paths that lie ahead. Sometimes letting your guard down is beneficial & healthy; the right move.

TarotHunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Choose paths in life that will play up to your assertive, aggressive creative energy.  Otherwise, it’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
  • Defending one’s choices is understandable but be cautious of letting other put you on the defensive because of them.
  • There is no need to rush into making a decision.  Although charging ahead might be your typical response to circumstances, it might be interesting to change up that dynamic and take a moment to reflect and think before acting.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Clinging to the status quo, refusing to be open to change can mean you’re robbing yourself of the potential for embracing your true self and finding new ideas to explore.
  • Letting someone steal your ideas, allowing yourself to be disempowered can prevent you from transforming your life into who and what you truly wish it to be.
  • Transformation and change can be frightening but clinging too tightly to the past, or to current circumstances can ultimately cause more harm than good.  It can lead to stagnation and a stultifying existence.  There is a beauty in death and transformation.  Embrace it rather than trying to escape it.

Tarot Hunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Always being the giver and nurturer can be exhausting and deplete your resources.  Asking for and receiving help and support is not a sign of weakness
  • Even those who seem to be poor in material resources can still offer succor and aide. Your value to a charitable institution is not solely defined by financial status. 
  • Sometimes accessing the resources to which you are entitled can be tricky.  Seek assistance from someone who is familiar with the system and can provide insights and guidance.
