Today is Litha, or Midsummer in the Northern hemisphere. It is the day that the sun is at its most powerful, the longest day of the year. After today, the days wil gradually begin to grow shorter. The Oak King will loose his poer and the Holly King will begin to gain his. A lot of very interesting and less than pleasant things have happened in the past week or so. Particularly the past day or so. Goddess do I wish I didn't have to always experience things painfully in order for me to do what I need to and tell Fear and Doubt to kiss my ass. I looked at a few posts from the Tarot Bloghop. Since my beloved Apple MacBook Air was stolen 2 weeks ago, I didn't want to commit to joining the hop and not be able to make a post. So I am going to do a spread that the ultra cool Arwen created for the last bloghop, Beltane. I need to reignite my passion.
Tinder: this card shows you what small things you can do to ignite your passion.
Kindling: this card shows you what you must keep doing to fuel your passion.
Fuel: this card shows you the major actions you must take to allow your passion to burn on a steady basis.
*I used the very pretty Incedental Tarot. I have a new iPad and there is a bit of a learning curve in making posts. I pray I can figure out how to make some adjustments because as of now, I can't seem to add photos nor my usual bright colors I love so much. Rats!*
1. Tinder - The World Rx - Ok, for a small thing this sure is a big card lol. I heard in my head, "the sky is falling!" This card is telling me stop limiting myself. Expand my vision of what inspires me. And when I hit a road block, it's not the end of the world for heaven's sake! Go with the flow more on the smaller everyday things and they will generate bigger results. Stop limiting mySelf due to fear of failure!
*I need to make a post about The World. It is basically stalking me at this point*
2. Kindling - The Rose Queen - This one is clear as day; nurture mySelf and do NOT allow mySelf to be drained by the emotional needs of others. I tend to get all caught up in helping others sort out their own mess. It is because I am an extremely compassionate and empathetic person. It is also because it is a perfect distraction from facing my own! This includes my interaction with one particular QofC. It is imperative I maintain healthy boundaries with this person. Passion is fire. We all know what happens when fire is in the presence of too much water. The Rose Queen also says in a lovely British accent, "Keep calm and carry on".
3. Fuel - The Sun - How synchronous that I get The Sun on Litha! This Sun says that not getting burned out is key to allowing my passion to burn on a steady basis. It's face has the same vibe as the Rose Queen. It also is telling me that getting back on my physical health plan will assist with any depression issues. Keeping myself active with the things I am passionate about and being in positive and healthy environments and like minded people will keep my soul's light burning brightly.
This lil' light of mine. I'm gonna let it shine!
4. Bottom Line - 9 of Arrows - Stop inhibiting my own power from moving me forward! This card says that i am so much closer than I think I am to a whole new beginning. Of living with a lust for life. If I follow the advice of the previous cards , I can avoid the 10 of Arrows and just go straight to the Ace!
