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.
- Earned joy.
- Being in the flow.
- Being open to the beauty of earth and the passionate embrace of Love while still holding in your heart the pain, the grief, and the problems of the world. You are unafraid of this paradox.
- Taking action to honor/move through something that is ending in your life; for example: writing down all your feelings about something ending and burning it (safely, in a small container, with something to extinguish the flame close by)
- Practicing Breath of Fire from Kundalini Yoga
- Study wildfire ecology to see the whole picture of burning—devastation—regrowth—flourishing.
POSTURE: Use Pile 3 / People cards for a question such as: What attitudes and behaviors will be most helpful to undertake this practice and walk with path? GUARDIAN OF FIRE invites you to follow your path and practices with attitudes of …
- Quiet strength.
- Taking action in a graceful and unhurried way.
- Taking time to nurture your own inner fire.
- Coaxing the gifts that might be hidden more deeply to emerge
OVERALL MUSINGS: Perhaps the fires lit by last week’s Lightning Path Card are still burning. But their purpose now is to complete the process of transformation: to burn away any remaining dead wood; to make room for more light to flow into the forest (of your soul!); and to call forth the new seeds. As this seems like an invitation for inner work (rather than outer challenge), you can take your time, move at the pace of guidance, delight in discovering something you had not imagined was waiting below the surface for you. Build up your energy to move with joy into emerging spring (literal for us in the northern hemisphere and perhaps metaphorical for those in the southern.)
