What mask do I put on for the world? – 4 of Swords. Tarot of Dreams.

What mask do I put on for the world? – 4 of Swords – Air – Cardinal – Jupiter in Libra.

Same card that I drew for yesterday’s question. The cards were throughly shuffled before I did today’s draw. This card made me chuckle as soon as I saw it as I do spend a lot of my time in bed, usually asleep! The fact this is in relation to me wearing a mask makes me ask the question: Why is the time I spend in bed sleeping/resting a mask?


How can I best connect to my shadow side? – 4 of Swords. Tarot of Dreams.

How can I best connect to my shadow side? – 4 of Swords – Air – Cardinal – Jupiter in Libra.

The best way for me to my shadow side is to be still and meditate. This will allow me to bring my shadow to light. Bringing my shadow into the Light will allow new thoughts and new thought processes to be created due to the cardinal modality of this card. Jupiter in Libra suggests a positive energy and a maintaining of balance. Acknowledging and working with my shadow creates this balance. Ignoring or suppressing my shadow side will only creates distortion. Jupiter also suggests an expansion of thought. New ideas and what is possible. Connecting with shadow highlights what is holding me back.

Ghost: What is haunting me from my past? 9 of Cups. Tarot of Dreams.
Ghost: What is haunting me from my past? 9 of Cups – Water – Mutable – Jupiter in Pisces.
None of the usual meanings that I have for this card are pinging my intuition here. Instead I’m drawn to the disembodied head that is very ghost like in the middle of this card. Usually I have a sense of who a person might be in a card when I read it but not with this one. It’s not Carmine or Ash because my head is not tingling when I mentally think of them. It feels like someone else. Someone else I haven’t encountered yet. Now THAT thought made my head tingle. Someone who I’ve encountered in my past but not met in my present yet. The joys of the multi universes and multiple timelines.

Tell me more about the person who is haunting me from my past – 3 of Cups – Water – Cardinal – Mercury in Cancer.
This is getting stranger as there are no figures at all in the Tarot of Dreams version of this card. I’m getting a strong sense of a party and alcohol being involved here. If this is the case then we are talking about a past life here as I’ve never liked the taste of alcohol and loud music hurts my head. The only thing I can think of are these things are a result of overindulgence in a past life. With these draws I have yet to understand how this person is haunting me.  The only further thing I can glean from these cards is that there is a strong social connection. Both cards are water but I don’t get strong emotions from these cards. I get more of a friendship vibe, but why would friends at a party haunt me? The more questions that I ask here the more questions I get. I am going to have ask my Sacred Council for further help so I’ll end the reading here.

What issue from my past life is affecting me? – XVI The Tower. Taror of Dreams.

What issue from my past life is affecting me? – XVI The Tower – Fire – Mars.

The issue from my past life that is affecting me is fear of change. In a past life the effects of change have been devastating and that makes me fearful in the present as I hope to avoid experiencing such devastation again. I believe that I have a past life in Lemuria, so I could have been present when Lemuria fell. I must remember that even if the tower/my home/security is destroyed it can be rebuilt and made into something better. I should also remember that the Star follows the Tower in the Fool’s Journey and that calm will follow chaos. I should be thankful that I know significant change is coming as it has allowed me to prepare, The society of Lemuria may no longer exist on the physical plane but I carry its teaching and methods in my heart. I am recreating a bit of Lemuria by constructing a 7th dimension paradigm to use in fiction and creating stories with it.

I am acknowledging the fear I am feeling.

I trust the Divine to catch me if I fall.

I am surrendering to the Divine and receiving everything I need.

I am receiving the loving Support of the Divine.

The message my ancestors have for me is a simple and straight forward. I should focus on being a messenger of love as this is my main role on Earth right now. I should also strive to maintain the purity of my life, and perhaps also my child like innocence when it comes to love.

I should be avoiding making long term commitments and plans, especially any involving me on the Earth plane. As this is a knight this is telling me that I probably don’t have all the I need to make long term decisions right now. I should, and I am exercising caution right now.

What can I look forward to? – Page of Coins [Pentacles] – Earth.

I can look forward to a period of learning and study about the world around me. I shall also look forward to be able to take my time and not rush to complete things. I will be able to study at a pace that suits me. I can also look forward to having child like freedom again – unconstrained by earthly adult concerns. I will discover the Joy around me again. Even though this Page is usually concerned with Earth based concerned, the page in this deck seems to have a mystical quality, drawing on the natural power and beauty that surrounds her.

The card and this question really make me happy!


What defines my sprituality? – 5 of Coins [Pentacles]. Tarot of Dreams.

What defines my sprituality? – 5 of Coins [Pentacles] – Earth – Fixed – Mercury in Taurus.

What defines my spirituality is a desire to help others in need. My experiences of hardship mean that I have compassion for others. Being an Earth card my spirituality is practical in nature and may indeed have its roots ‘in the Earth’. I don’t follow a specific Pagan tradition but I do observe the Wheel of the Year. Mercury in Tauris is observing transcending Earthly concerns by being spiritual, and for me this is the case, but may also hold another meaning for me. It could also mean transcending the limits of me earthly body and the limits imposed by my disability. My spirituality helps me with that.

How can I communicate better to the Universe and others? – 3 of Wands. Tarot of Dreams.

How can I communicate better to the Universe and others? – 3 of Wands – Fire – Cardinal – Sun in Aries.

To be honest I am a little unsure how to interpret this. I can communicate better with the Universe by waiting to see what happens rather than pre-empting and jumping the gun. This leads to listening more. To listen more I should be still especially when communicating with the Universe. I should focus on one thing at a time and not be so preoccupied with my destination and take time to enjoy the journey more. I should take my time more with conversations and worry less about my mental to do list for the day. The cardinal mode suggests I can communicate better by allowing more conversations to begin. I may be surprised where they take me. Sun in Aries is exalted here and Aries is my sun sign so this tells me that communicating with the universe and others is a position of Strength. However, I should listen more and this will help prevent me dominating the conversion so it doesn’t always centre on me. This underlies another piece of advice when communicating with the universe. I need to remember that the universe is not just me and what I want.
