TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • It’s easy to focus so much on the task at hand that you lose sight of the big picture; you can’t see the direction in which you’re moving. Take a moment to get your bearings before you are so off course you can’t correct it.
  • Teamwork may be the answer to completing current projects. Creating an environment where everyone’s opinion and input is valued may produce better and more innovative results than trying to outdo each other and racing for the finish line.
  • You are going in circles, not sure which way is up. Instead of continuing on this exhausting path try taking a break to regroup and relax. Without time to recharge your energy and rejuvenate your body you’ll burn out. You need to prioritize time for yourself too.

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:

  • Holding on to painful memories and continuing to mourn what is lost prevents you from planting new seeds and manifesting a new reality.
  • If you don’t ground yourself, connect with what is really important in life, emotional instability will consume you.
  • Past opportunities are gone, it’s time to accept their loss and find the way forward. Remaining lost in mourning, continuing to cry over spilt milk, will create a barren, fallow future.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You’re not seeing the choices available, the paths that lie open to you, because your head is up your ass. Get your head out of there and move!
  • You think if you avoid choosing and just continue plodding ahead a decision will be made for you. Bullshit! Take charge of your life! Be responsible for your decisions and accept the consequences. Otherwise you’ll never find what you truly seek.
  • You have no sense of direction or purpose and have been moving forward because a thing in motion stays in motion. Lift up your head and look around you. There are choices to be made, paths to be selected! Become engaged in your own life before it’s too late. Choose yourself!

#TarotDaily – Ace of Swords + Hermit Rx

Tarot Hunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • It’s time for a fresh, new approach to the situation but you can’t do it alone.
  • Take what you’ve learned from your solo experiences and apply them in a new way. Just remember that sometimes diplomacy and intellect are more effect tools that a sharp tongue.
  • Forcing your way through this situation may achieve the short term goals you desire but leave you stranded, abandoned and alone in the long term.

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.

TarotHunter’s Silver Bullets:

  • Embrace new ideas and concepts.  Let them lead you to new studies and learning opportunities.
  • Ground yourself so that all these new ideas coming at you don’t become overwhelming.  Taking on too much at once often leads to burnout.
  • Enthusiasm and excitement can be great motivators but if you don’t have the willingness to do the work they will go nowhere.

 

The Wheel of Fortune shows our Universe set against the cosmos.  A twelve spoked wheel bearing multi-colored stones is overlaying the Universe, with the Sun as its hub.  The stones at the compass points each bear a letter – T in the North, A in the East, R in the South and O in the West.  A blast of light shoots forth from each of the wheel’s spokes.  We see Jupiter with its huge red spot, Saturn with its rings, red Mars and glorious Earth enhanced by the swirling cosmic spiral of stars.  The Greenwood Wheel of Fortune shows a shirt being created that bears various figures – a bear, a stag, a human, a horse, a sun and a moon.  They are each part of the bigger picture; components of the whole.  They remind us that we are all

When I first saw the Wheel of Change card my first reaction was that it looked like the Big Bang in action.  The Sun’s radiant glory swirling out to embrace the Universe.  Looking deeper I note the twelve spokes on the wheel symbolizing the years or the zodiac signs.  The planets floating in space each exert their influence in our lives.  This card reminds me that there is a cosmic plan in our lives – our horoscope might be one way to explain and examine this plan.  I don’t see it as something which sets our every move in stone but more as a guideline, a roadmap or our options and possibilities.  I remember a psychology teacher once telling me that humans are often born with the potential for something (we were discussing illnesses and behavior patterns) but he pointed out that our environment and what experiences we are exposed to will determine whether these predispositions manifest themselves.  That is how I see our astrological charts.  They are guide posts, potentials and possibilities but not our only options.  The Greenwood Wheel of Fortune offers a similar sense – there is obviously a pattern that is being followed.  We may not see the overall pattern but it is clear we are part of it.  We are woven together in a way that makes us interdependent upon each other.

This Wheel of Fortune reminds me of the song Circle of Life from The Lion King.  In this image Jupiter’s influence is supreme and Saturn’s is waning.  But we all know that eventually Saturn will have its return.  Just as we know that Mercury will eventually go retrograde.  But at the same time I see the Sun at the center of this marvelous cosmos representing us – after all aren’t we always the center of our own lives.  Our radiance and light shines on all those around us, and we influence them as much as we are influenced by them.  This Wheel of Fortune is a reminder that we are not alone when we goes through these cycles in our lives.  There are others around us who can help guide us and assist us in handling these phases.  And hopefully we will be there for them in turn.  Maybe the Wheel is our plans, our goals and our dreams, with the influences of the Universe flowing underneath.

Reversed, this card suggests that there are things changing inside me.  I can hear David Bowie singing “I’m going through changes” in my mind as I write these words.  It’s a slow process, rather like moving stones, but they are occurring.  Slowly but surely I am re-aligning myself to a new direction, a new path; orienting myself to follow a new star.  I’m not sure where these changes will lead but there is a part of me that is very excited and hopeful to see how things turn out.
