Two Tarot cards have been pulled to practice the inducement of synchronicity. The intention is for you to watch for the consciousness these cards 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 your unconscious and conscious mind: a bridge to wholeness.

CHETH

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, 26, 2012, or number 16: The Tower, also 6: The Chariot. The path the Chariot  is that of opportunity rolling through your life. This path, CHETH, is shaded on the diagram.

The Chariot is a path of opportunity for transformation that you need to be on alert for.  Pay attention, you have to recognize and jump on this chance when it presents itself. The symbols on this archetype card are many layered, these forces at work are completely outside of material control. The Chariot’s six-pointed starred canopy indicates there are celestial influences at work. The Charioteer wears a laurel and star crown, indicating attainment of the highest spiritual evolution. On his shoulders, outward facing crescent moons alert us to formative forces. The alchemical symbols on his tunic represent spiritual transformation. The square is earth, sign of strength and will. He also holds a wand, no reins, further underscoring that he controls with strength of will. On the Chariot itself there are wings that represent inspiration and a Hindu sign of positive and negative unity. The black and white sphinxes repeat this positive/negative unity. Note the city in the background, the Charioteer has turned his back on civilization and materialism to seeks spiritual transcendence. Wholeness on this path requires strength of will to reject civilization’s material priorities in order to seek personal transformation that harmonizes good and evil and makes your life “all good.”

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 different Cabals. 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 Page of Cups.  Pages are the state of being embodied in our inner child. Staying in touch with this state of being is to stay forever young. In the case of the Page of Cups we are dealing we are dealing with water, (feelings).  This Page is the child that lives in wonder at the unknown and unexpected. There is a fish in his cup, and there is no disgust or fear, instead, there is a sense of joy and intrigue. This card is anchored in pure joyous feeling. Wholeness for the Page of Wands is to be able to maintain an attitude of joy and intrigue regardless of circumstance.

Please note:

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
