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 04, 19, 2012, or number 19: The Sun. The path the Sun represents is shaded on the diagram included. The consciousness on this path, RESH, is that breaking through all obstacles.
RESH consciousness is action energy. People on this path do things that we all admire and aspire to do. The child is riding away from walled sunflowers, 4 flowers represent the 4 suits, the four personalities of mankind. These flowers have turned their faces to the child for energy. This is the path of “Look Mom, no Hands!” The horse is being ridden without reins. On this path, perfect control is achieved by balancing our conscious with our unconscious. The feather flying on the child’s head, the same feather we see in the hat of the Fool and the bright red streamer flying in the child’s left hand further underscores the power of the unconscious taking precedence. The Sun itself emits pure energy and wavy (vibration energy). The Sun’s pure lines symbolize the power of the Light flowing directly to us. The Sun’s wavy lines are our power to reflect and refract the Light into vibrations that bring our personal realities into form. The block to wholeness on this path of vibrant energy is the charcoal hued wall behind the horse, supporting society (the flowers). Wholeness requires us to shine; to not allow social walls to block our consciousness breakthroughs, nor to stop us from taking action that balances our subconscious with our conscious. The charcoal hue of the wall also reminds us to not burn out and destroy our selves and or others in our glorious drive to do, and be.
The second card today, the Ace of Wands, is a break from the regular 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 card, the Ace of Wands, should not have been in the deck I pulled from. Since it was I am going to stay with it. I can’t resist the chance to watch for the ultimate consciousness breakthrough this card represents combined with the Sun!
Wands represent the intuitive personality type, associated with knowing and compassion. Aces fall on the highest path of consciousness found on the Tree of Life, KETHER The consciousness on this path is often referred to as the “hand of God.” This path is the beginning, where Light enters our consciousness. The Ace of Wands depicts God gifting us with the knowing aspect of being. The Wand delivered to us here is bursting with life. Wands are the suit most closely aligned to sexuality. The eight of Wands is where we find orgasm on the Tree of Life. This Ace wand is the big bang of creation. The leaves bursting off of the wand are the abundant seeds of creation. From these seeds nothing becomes something. From these seeds we receive the power of knowing, the power to create something out of nothing: the power to create the castle on the peak in the distance. Wholeness via the Ace of Wands is to see the Light!
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
