Last week I received the honors of being a moderator of Tarotvia, an awesome study group for Tarot de Marseille readers. However, lately, I have been finding myself yearning to write, but absolutely at a slump to actually sit myself down and intellectually decipher what it is I need to write about. My thoughts have been in the air as if all is just too upside-down and topsy-turvy. Having recently relocated to my new log cabin from which I get to gaze upon the powerful Langeberg Mountain range. The energy of a new home versus the Paleoproterozoic era of the mountain range is something that allows me to turn my back on the instabilities and insecurities of both my past and future, offering that moment of allowing what is to be. So I asked my Spanish Tarot reproduction of Tarot of 1736, Fournier Museum of Vitoria deck, what is it that I need to be aware of in order to overcome this block?
Accept it, you’re upside-down!
The thing with reading the Tarot, in my honest opinion, is that with the right question comes the right answer – guaranteed. How deep do you wish to delve into the question is perfectly attuned to how deep your answer will be.
At first sight, my Queen of Swords is reversed and yes, I do read reversals! Many Tarot readers say the cards reveal enough being upright, but hello! How can anything be enough if a change of perspective brings more? If I can find further insight in direction and stance then I want to look at that too.
So yes, looking at my circumstances as wanting to share my ideas, how do I relate to being upside-down? Finding security and grounding in the present is not the easiest, especially with having shifted to a new home in a world where our air is tainted with the COVID-19 virus, stock exchanges falling and recession is looming.
Take stock of what is and re-write my own story from my own perspective. I still have authority over my situation.
I often feel as if I am waiting for the credits to start rolling and this horror movie to end. But the Tarot is saying that albeit I feel upside-down, I can take stock of what is and re-write my own story from my own perspective. I still have authority over my situation, and I still have my intellect to write. What I can take from her is discipline and focus – towards the future. Because albeit this card is upside-down, she now has direction.
Because albeit this card is upside-down, she now has direction.
And with that acceptance, I can then be receptive of soul enrichment, in connecting with my higher self and thereby reclaim my authority over the situation at hand. I become the Queen of Cups. I have traded my upside-down sword for compassion, cleansing, which allows me to create. The Cup is a womb to create, a period of gestation, of intuitive flow which is at my disposal, once I am willing to accept what is. Only once I am able to hold my cup, and am open to accepting what is, I find the drive to create my own future.
But there is more to this gestation as were I to really take stock, I would notice my baton of creative energy. The Baton, which is at the same angle, the same “frequency” seen in my World, XXI. Thereby, I am the highest form of creation, creating my own world. Which just happens to be my Shadow Card. I create my own destiny, albeit subconsciously and I can now consciously choose to accept and create my world, irrespective of my circumstances.
