Tarot for the Way 10 January

“Whatever the future brings: have faith that you can’t fall deeper than in God’s hands.”
― Lily Amis

Just a short message today about keeping the faith and the cards in the Tarot that correspond with the hands since this is the second post on the trot featuring hands. Gemini is the astrological sign ruling the hands and the Gemini cards in the Tarot are The Lovers, 8-10 of Swords and the King of Swords. 

Gemini energy finds it difficult to focus on one thing all the way to the end at times. It is easily distrac… ‘shiny!’ <—- I’m Gemini Rising so I know all about this dilemma!

Gemini energy, because of its tendency to indulge the monkey mind, often makes us worry excessively (although that’s tautology – any worry is ‘excessive’). This can especially be seen in the 9 of Swords (Mars in Gemini).

To grow in faith is to grow in peace. The Lovers Tarot card teaches us to keep choosing Christ and God’s righteousness. This card is Major Arcanum number 6, corresponding to the 6th sefira on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, aka the Christ sphere.

The mind needs to become our servant and we need to be ever vigilant to not let it run away with us. The paradox is that we must use our mind to discipline our mind. The King of Swords shows us this king of mastery. We master our minds like this by consciously and constantly choosing thoughts that give us peace and by feeding our mind the things that make us grow in faith.

It then becomes important what we surround ourselves with on a daily basis and also what we choose to touch with our hands. Do we spend most of the day grasping and gathering in… or holding up our hands to defend ourselves…? Do we lift our hands up to praise God in the morning and spend at least a good-sized chunk of the day giving to the world with a glad heart?

Lift up your hands to the holy place and bless the Lord!
~ Psalm 134:2

Just for today… do not worry. Be happy, ask God to bless your hands so that they can be Her hands in the world today!

Love and Blessings,
