Each week I pull Tarot cards to inspire practice that cultivates soul wisdom for readers of the blog as a group using the Gaian Tarot. (If you want to read more about the process, check out Sacred Practices of the Gaian Tarot: The 3 P’s).You are invited to use the cards below to inspire your practice, and, if you like, share your reflections in the comments. You are also free to draw your own cards and share them in the comments.
- Awareness of the interconnection of all things.
- A heart made light because you know you have considered the Whole, the Earth, your community and are living in a right balance between their needs and your own.
- Articulating your ethical and moral codes and then checking in on how you are living up to their highest potential.
- Acknowledge the hard work you have done to bring you to this place in your life/work/healing. Then offer a prayer of thanksgiving for all who have helped you in this or create a brief ritual that honors this work.

OVERALL MUSINGS: The cards this week invite an intentional examination of your life, your work, and/or your relationships against your highest aspirations and values. Is your hard work contributing to your desired outcome? Does it serve the greater good? Use your own intellect and awareness to make a fearless assessment, and be open also to messages and guidance that come from the Divine, from the natural world. Be part of the Whole, not set apart from It. And grounded in that connection, find the final messages of your assessment and your plan for moving forward in the stirring of your heart. When it is as light as a feather, know that next part of your questing life will be in service to the Whole.
