JusticeThe Laws of the universe demand that we do not let material matters interfere with our personal growth, that we stay well balanced and don’t act overly defensive. We must cut away what is disturbing us out of our lives but need to make sure this is not the easy way out.

Justice calls us to immediately handle that which is bothering us and delaying our development. Our personal development is stuck and we need to do something about it –and do it now! If we do not act quickly things will take a course of their own –usually leading us to places we rather avoid.

When the card show up we need to carefully examine the issue at hand and check whether we feel well balanced, genuine, and in control. Or are we stubborn, acting defensively, hiding something and getting into undue conflicts. Most importantly: are we expressing ourselves correctly?

If not, it is time for change: we need to step away from the issue for a moment so we can gain correct perspective. After doing so we can act in a well balanced way to fix the issue while making sure we comply with our inner needs. For example, we talk with our boss on what bothers us and try to find a solution. But if after an honest effort we cannot resolve it the card calls us to cut what bothers us out of our lives, in this case our job! Then we will able to find a position that better fits us and will be able to focus on those things that will bring the desired change into our lives.

Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of FortuneAccording to the Laws of the universe life is not random. Things happen because something inside us causes them to. We have to take control of our lives, understand the cause of problems we face and correct it from the inside so things happen in reality.

The Wheel of Fortune indicates that currently it seems that we do not control our destiny but rather drift along the current of reality. This current causes our lives to be a point on a rotating wheel: at one time it is up, another it is down. But life is not random: our inner world directly affects the outside world around us.

In contrast to Strength in which we are in the right place and just need to keep on believing, the Wheel of Fortune instruct us to take care of our lack of inner balance. Once we do so it will make a change in the outside world. The card calls upon us to create balance and wholeness in ourselves that will cause us to attract the right thing into our lives.

An example might be a woman looking but failing to find a relationship. The card can indicate she is needy and needs a partner so he can make her feel valuable. Only when she understands she has value on her own and act accordingly, will she become more attractive for potential mates.

The Hermit

The HermitThe Laws of the universe say that if we planned and acted correctly all that is left to do is let go of the will to get specific results and simply wait patiently. If we wait knowing that we acted correctly the results will come.

The Hermit represents our need for patience. If we planned and executed in the best way then there is nothing more to do but wait and let go of our wish for quick and specific results. Patience and time will bring us the desired results – all we need to do is simply wait.

If it becomes clear that our planning or action were not correct then we need to understand that the answer we seek lies deep inside. We do not need help or advice but simply have to find the time to be alone so we can neutralize others’ bad influence -an influence that can lead us in the wrong direction. When we cleanse ourselves we can know for certain what is right for us. Only then can we go back and do the right thing.

StrengthThe Laws of the universe teach us that control comes from within -from a peaceful and confident place inside us. We are on the right track and have to simply trust the inner force that guides us –even if it seems illogical or conflicts with our wish at the moment.

Strength shows that although we might have temporarily lost balance, we are at the right place and heading in the right direction. If we feel threatened and out of control it is because we became disconnected from ourselves, our problems and our motives. In this case we need to regain our self-confidence and understand that the basis for everything that happens in the world outside lies within us.

In this case what blocks us lies deep within us and therefore there is no need for an external action. We need to enter a process in which we confront the temptation to try to control our reality by force. Instead we will learn to gain self control that comes from self-confidence and full belief in our chosen path. This way we will create a new reality, a reality in which we decide how our lives will unfold.

The Chariot

The ChariotThe laws of the universe forbid us to give up on what is important for us -otherwise we will give it up forever. We must insist and fight for our dream with everything we got.

The Chariot calls upon is not to give up: not to give up on our dream, not to give up on what we believe in! The card provides us with the legitimacy to be assertive, decisive and stubborn in order to fulfill our dream –whatever it is.

This is a card of tough decisions and resolute actions. Its appearance indicates that we must not give up, not this time! It is important to understand that if we give up this time something inside us will die. This time things have to be different. If we act swiftly and decisively, if we become direct and strong-minded we will succeed!

The Lovers

The LoversThe laws of the universe dictate that we cannot progress regarding the issue at hand because our lives are too busy. We must first clear out what is unneeded, excessive, and that which is overburdening or delaying us. We then must then act with all our might to promote this issue.

One of the reasons we find it so hard to listen to ourselves is that our lives are simply too busy. We must, therefore, clear out everything that is not right for us. From this perspective anything can stand in our way -even if not directly related to the issue at hand. Only when everything in our lives finds its balance can we make the right choice regarding the issue at hand.

Many times the card indicates that we are facing a dilemma – such as if to enter a new relationship. Initially, it seems that we are too confused and do not know what do but just like in the Two of Coins, deep inside we know what is right for us. We therefore must ignore our fears and others’ opinions and simply follow our inner voice.

It is important that we listen to our heart and walk the right path – enabling everything else to fall into place. The card indicates that this is a good time to start executing our ideas. Once we do so we will receive support from those around us. And we need to remember that only when we believe in ourselves will others follow. It is important to understand that we have no choice but follow our inner truth because otherwise opposing forces, materializing as the devil, will start to act against us.

It is important for us to utilize others around us to guide and counsel us, enabling us to view the situation from several angles, and this in turn will strengthen us. At the same time it is important to remember that only we know what is right for us. Although it is important to consult with others the final decision and the associated responsibility falls squarely upon our own shoulders. No one else can make our decision for us.

The Emperor

The EmperorThe laws of the universe call upon us to build a solid material foundation as basis for our journey. But we also need to verify that we are acting out of the right motives and not trying to fulfill social expectations.

The Emperor represents an important principle: in order to be successful in the spiritual world we must first succeed and establish ourselves in the material world. But at the same time it is important to verify that our goal truly represent our wants and needs and not those of our environment.

The card deals with order, stability, organization, management and authority. It represents material success, professional prosperity, management abilities and a natural knack for handling money and wealth.

Although we know how to control the material world, it is also important for us to learn to express ourselves and speak truly -from the heart. It is especially important in relationships where we tend to escape to the familiar place of trying to manage the other party. What we really need to do is simply express our wants and needs.

The Empress

The EmpressWe are close to reaching success, but in order to realize it we need to obey the laws of the universe stating that we need to give in order to receive. We have to give from ourselves and help others without expecting a reward.

Fertility is a guiding principle in our lives. When we are fertile we are connecting to the energy of prosperity, success and happiness and through it we can better ourselves and our surroundings.

The spiritual lesson of the Empress deals with our duty of empowering those around us so they can maximize their true potential. We achieve this via our support, our feedback, as well as through intellectual and spiritual stimuli. When we give from ourselves without knowing when, and if, we are rewarded it will help us connect to abundance and fertility in our own lives.

When the Empress shows up it is only natural to give from ourselves to others. But, at the same time we need to pay attention to instances when we find it hard to give and investigate why and where is it coming from.

The High Priestess

The High PriestessThe laws of the universe suggest that in life we cannot only go after sure things. What is important is not the results we get but the lesson we learn. We cannot be afraid of the unknown -we need to take a chance, dive in and follow what life brings us.

The High Priestess, like the Fool, cannot provide a definite answer. This is a card with a moral that calls upon us to get down deep and explore our darkest parts –those hidden areas that we usually avoid out of habits, fears and concerns. Coping with these parts and what they might reveal will not be easy but, at the end of the process, we will learn our lesson.

When the High Priestess appears the card indicates uncertainty and mystery. There are unclear things in our life and we feel that we are walking on the edge of an abyss, that nothing is safe. But it is important to understand that in life we should not always seek the safe route but also open the door for mystery and uncertainty in our lives. When the card shows up we need to take a chance and let life lead us to the unknown so we can learn the lesson that will help us grow. A lesson that will lead to enlightenment!
