TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You’re trying to hold on too tightly; refusing to give up any control over things in your life. This may lead to a rude awakening because you’re deliberately ignoring the negative consequences of this decision.
  • You feel as though your life is a shambles and will never be rebuilt. You don’t see yourself as having any control over your life and find it difficult to explain yourself to others. Seeking outside support might help improve this situation.
  • You have managed to fight and claw your way to the top and have discovered it isn’t what you hoped it would be. It is proving unfulfilling and stultifying. You thought achieving these goals would dramatically reshape your life. It has but not in the ways you’d hoped.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You’ve been conserving your resources but that can only take you so far. Your heart is no longer invested in the current situation and wants to move on to seek something different.
  • You’ve convinced yourself that the status quo is being maintained in your life but it isn’t true. In your heart you realize things have changed and you need to move on but you’re still resistant.
  • You’re clinging too tightly to the way things used to be; letting fear dictate your behaviors. Trust that your heart will lead you in the right direction and release the past. You may sacrifice some stability but find untold emotional satisfaction in its place.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • What have you sacrificed in pursuit of your heart’s desire? How much of yourself have you lost? Was it worth it?
  • You’ve let logic and intellect take you in the wrong direction; listened to the wrong advisors. Now might be a good time to walk away and follow your heart.
  • You have been given messages from the divine, from nature; omens pointing you in the right direction which you have ignored. Reconnect with your heart and listen to the message it brings. You might find your way to the true fulfillment and happiness you seek.

TarotHunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Your feelings of dissatisfaction and ennui distract and overwhelm you. Instead of changing the situation, you howl you unhappiness to the moon and whoever else will listen. Stop wallowing and make some changes!
  • You might feel you’re missing a deep emotional connection with someone but it’s possible that right now you in a lone wolf phase. You might need to learn how to be with yourself before you can be with someone else.
  • You have an opportunity for emotional growth and exploration but you refuse to accept it. You haunt yourself with things out of reach. Rather than crying for the moon, enjoy and appreciate the gifts you already possess. Explore them fully and in great detail before moving on to something new.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You believe you’re a champion but if you have to turn yourself upside down and inside out to do it, are you truly winning?
  • You’re pursuing victory using the same stale tactics. Stop resisting change and try exploring new perspectives. It might improve your chances and revitalize your mojo.
  • You’ve stripped yourself to the bone and given all you have in pursuit of your goal. When was the last time you stopped to truly enjoy what you’ve gained?

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Starting a new relationship while clinging to nostalgic memories of past ones can make things complicated.
  • Perhaps the seeds of a new relationship rest with childhood companions. Now might be a good time to reconnect with lost friends.
  • Are you trying to find your heart; to discover interests that could bring you joy? Perhaps a stroll down memory lane will aide you in that endeavor.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You may find your creative juices depleted if you put off nurturing and cultivating them in favor of making others happy. Stay juicy!!
  • Sometimes family obligations and tending to their needs leaves little time for tending to our own. Try to make some time each day dedicated to sharpening your creative saw.
  • As the song goes ” you can’t please everyone so you’ve got to please yourself “. Perhaps this isn’t a viable option all the time, but your needs and passions should certainly be given priority once in a while.

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • It is challenging to find emotional fulfillment, have a happy home life, when one spends too much time burdened by job obligations. As the saying goes “Work to live, don’t live to work”.
  • Perhaps you feel an inner sense of emotional satisfaction and fulfillment when you help others with their burdens. Be careful not to weigh yourself down in the process.
  • Past emotional damage or an unhappy home life can become burdens we don’t even realize we’re shouldering. Take the time to work through and heal from that emotional pain before it buries you alive.

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • If you were suddenly gifted/won all the money you could ever need would it make you truly happy?
  • Weighing out good intentions and beneficence like coins on a scale is unlikely to bring emotional satisfaction.
  • Perhaps to find true happiness and emotional satisfaction we need to be as generous with ourselves as we are with our money. Donating cash is always beneficial, but to volunteer one’s time and energy is truly giving.

The Book says – Completion, perfect or satisfying resolution; the end or finalization of a cycle; successful achievement; triumph; self-respect; synthesis; a sense of communion with all life; clear self-expression and realization.
Reversed: Lack of momentum impedes endings; failure to achieve; inability to accept oneself; to allow changes or perfect closure, or to release potential; inability to see the wood for the trees; fixed of received views obscure self-essence.

Tarot Hunter’s Theories: This card speaks of balance and a sense of completeness. Nothing is missing; all the parts are present. There is a quiet feeling of self-worth and achievement. This can happen when we have worked hard to achieve something – a deep sense of personal satisfaction and inner peace. There is something about this card that suggests being centered; focused on our inner world and our inner needs. We no longer need to search the wide world over for excitement and adventure because at this particular moment in time we have found what we were looking for. The sense of well-being and joy just radiates from the center of this being. And it also suggests that if we

There is something about this card that suggests being centered; focused on our inner world and our inner needs. We no longer need to search the wide world over for excitement and adventure because at this particular moment in time we have found what we were looking for. The sense of well-being and joy just radiates from the center of this being. And it also suggests that if we blend our different parts and elements, allow ourselves to be at one with the world, we too can feel this blessed state. 

What I really love about this card is that it portrays this sense of well-being, peace, and blessedness as intrinsic to the being in the card. We are the source of this, not any external stimuli. All the external world can do is help us realize this fact. All the drugs, alcohol, sex or possessions in the world will not give us this feeling. They might create an illusory substitute which tides us over for a brief time, but ultimately its falseness rings through and we are left as empty and bereft as when we started. If we look within ourselves and realize the gifts we have and the fulfillment we can find; the sense of achievement and personal satisfaction that is ours for the taking, then we too can be radiant, blessed, perfected beings.
