Daily Tarot ~ VI The Lovers & XIV Temperance


Today 2 cards popped out at me… my intent while shuffling was the path I am choosing (I started studying Wicca again) and if it is the right one… seeking answers in the cards… 

VI The Lovers

The Lovers Interpretation: Follow your heart, as love and relationships may be your focus now. 

You will have choices to make, and an important decision is in the offing, which will have life-changing effects in the long-term as you commit to it. It is also a period in which you will notice opposites in everything around you; this is the way of nature. You will be aware of the different sides in any argument or dispute, and you can use these observations to resolve any conflicts. The Lovers card has an astrological association with Gemini, which mirrors The Lovers; it is the sign of bonding. But beware its frivolous nature! This is an example of the yin and yang of your life — dualities, good and bad at the same time, balancing each other. Something will happen to give you a deeper understanding of your self-value, and you will feel more complete.

Rose Quartz is The Lovers’ crystal. It is a stone of love, enhancing relationships and commitment. Although you may expect The Lovers to be linked to the heart chakra, the crown chakra is actually the energy center that connects you to universal energy and love. Meditate on any difficult decisions and you will find peace of mind. 

 

XIV Temperance

 Temperance InterpretationYou are transforming. Emotions play an important role now, but don’t let them overwhelm you. 

Temper your heart with your mind, as understanding your emotions will lead to self-control. Work on removing any blocks and allow new energy and ideas to flow. Temperance also brings a time for reconciliation, fixing relationships where harsh words may have been spoken. Don’t block your emotions with indifference to a person or solution. You are in a period of intellectual and emotional growth, so be flexible, blend your abilities with the new ideas you are absorbing, and compromise where you need to. Sagittarius suggests broadening your horizons; focus on the goodness all around you, as there is harmony and understanding to be found. 

Garnet can help balance emotions and relieve the depression, disruption, and trauma that change may bring. The heart chakra is your middle energy center, where the physical energies drawn up from the earth mix with the spiritual energy drawn down from the heavens. In this way, Temperance can also suggest a time for moderation and healing.

For me I take this part here: “Something will happen to give you a deeper understanding of your self-value, and you will feel more complete.” as a positive affirmation of what I am doing in studying Wicca again. This time more seriously and deeply. That goes with this part as I have been crying out for some meaning: “Meditate on any difficult decisions and you will find peace of mind.”

This part here: “Work on removing any blocks and allow new energy and ideas to flow.” I have felt so stuck and if you’ve been following you will know that I feel like there is a huge brick wall in front of me that I need to break through. Pretty much Temperance has a lot of good information for me to mull over… and the mending relationships where harsh words were spoken… well, that needs to be done as I have had harsh words with my sisters whom I love very much recently. I just may give each of them a call today. 

I hope these cards held as much meaning for you and your life situations as it does for me. Today is the first day I feel settled and yesterday was the first day I decided to start learning more about being/becoming Wiccan. I just may have gotten my confirmation. 🙂
