Two Tarot cards have been pulled to induce synchronicity. The intention is for you to watch for the consciousness they represent to be reflected in the events of your day. This practice known as Yoga of the West, is designed to build a bridge of intuition between the reader’s unconscious and conscious mind; a bridge to wholeness.
The first card is an archetype card chosen according to the numerology of the day. Each archetype card in the Tarot represents a path on the Tree of Life (Kabbalah). Today is 03, 10, 2012, or number 10: The Wheel of Fortune, or number 1: The Magician. Number 1 consciousness seems correct this day. On the Magicians path, BETH, conscious creation of material existence is realized.
The Magician sits on the ‘right hand of the father,” and is capable of conscious creation of reality. The Magician has achieved wholeness; all four-personality types are on the table. The Magician, as shown by his wand raised high in his right hand, is a Master who can create miracles. The White Magician wears the crown of infinite wisdom and his left hand pointing down signifies that his work is for the good of all who operate on the lower levels of consciousness. Note the red roses of desire that adorn the card above and below the figure, “as above, so below.” The Magician desires heaven on earth. The white lilies symbolize purity of thought, they further emphasize that this is a White Magician in service to the All. Note the Magician wears a snake belt. The Snake on the Tree of Life symbolizes the life force, the Light of creation that we are all connected too and reflect. Wholeness for the Magician is to be belted (protected) by the Light.
The second card is a face card. Each face card in the Tarot represents an aspect of personality. There are four personality types: feeling (cups), thinking (swords), intuitive (wands) and sensate (pentacles). Each personality type has four levels of consciousness that correlate to maturity, or level of consciousness: page, knight, queen and king. Who is highest consciousness, the King or the Page is in contention in the different cabals who study the Tree. Regardless, all of us, male and female, have the capacity to realize all of these aspects of personality and levels of consciousness. The paths of the Tree are four-dimensional. Each level of personality travels its own dimension on each path simultaneously. A whole human being fully conscious realizes all levels of all personality types on all paths
Today’s face card, or aspect of personality to watch for is the Knight of Wands. Watch for a man who riding to realize an ideal with or without help or perfect fit.
The Knight is the face card that makes things happen. Wands represent the intuitive aspect of personality: the inspired insight level of consciousness. The Knight of Wands is rearing and moving forward. He is on fire, his tunic is covered with salamanders, the fire sign, BUT notice this Knight is too big for his horse. This Knight’s legs are too long. This impetuous Knight jumped on and rode out without making sure he fit his mount. The Knight of Wands is the intuitive risk taker; mistakes are just part of his journey. This master of unthinking moves never equates failure as a poor reflection on self. Failure is just part of the journey. Thus when this Knight succeeds he succeeds big! The pyramids in the background show us that this Knight’s actions are magical. The Knight of Wands shows us that success and failure are equal learning experiences. What matters is the experience, the doing, taking chances and trying. Wholeness is found in the journey, not the destination.
People also consult the Tarot as an oracle. Caution is advised. An oracle opens the door to spiritual deception as easily as spiritual truth. To read more about Yoga of the West go to http://bit.ly/9BiovO
