It’s that time again! Every-other-Tuesday, as long as we’re all stuck in quarantine, we’re whipping out one of our woo-woo oracle decks and pulling a few cards for all of us.

In times like these, it can be especially hard to tune into your intuition and receive guidance. Fear and uncertainty create a LOT of noise, both internally and externally! And, ironically, it’s exactly when we’re most afraid and unsure that we most need to be able to receive wisdom and inspiration.

So, if you’re having a hard time getting calm, quieting your mind, and tuning in (understandable, if so!), we’re doing what witches do best and conjuring a message from the Universe for you today.

We pulled 3 cards from one of our oracle card decks, and one of them has a message about something you need help with or answers about! 🙂

Here are the cards we pulled for you, along with their descriptions:

Truth:

In front of a dramatic sky, this card shows a mirror image of a warrior woman meeting her own reflection. With swords drawn, it seems conflict may be near. But the all-seeing eye of truth presides, serving as a poignant reminder that what is done to another is ultimately done to the self.

The double-edged sword, capable of separation and liberation, symbolizes dual powers of nature such as life/death and victory/defeat/ Like a sword, truth is a sharp instrument worthy of greatest respect. Depending on how they are wielded, both have the ability to destroy or heal. Only the maturity and wisdom of the user determines the outcome.

In tarot, the Suit of Swords represents navigation of thought and the unseen realm of the mind. But when it comes to the application of truth, the unruly mind cleverly justifies all manner of things and distracts us away from our alignment to love. Fear poses many challenges along the path to discovering the liberation of truth. Reactions of others, guilt, and insecurity distract and rob us of the opportunity to clearly identify the truth of the matter.

The presence of this powerful card is a call for authentic freedom. Bravely face your fears, step into the light of love and examine the essence of the situation. Rather than facing facts, perhaps you have been in a state of avoidance. If this is the case, it could be a reminder to “sort the wheat from the chaff” so you can see clearly to move beyond the gravitational pull of old patterns. You may also be searching for the reality behind your relationships to others, or the deeper meaning of life and your place and purpose in it.

Seeking the truth is a worthy quest on any level, and can provide a significant opportunity for liberation and growth. See where this card falls within your spread, as the surrounding cards help provide context for understanding how Truth applies to you at this time.

Union:

A tantric goddess sits within an ancient temple of worship. She is filled with the ecstacy of divine union, which permeates the room in a rainbow of hues radiating from her aura. All the colors of the chakras are represented. The goddess wears a pink lotus flower, symbolizing transcendence in Buddhist culture. The lotus thrives in muddy water, yet reaches beyond the murky depths for the light, emerging as a perfect cbloom.

Whether you seek spiritual union from within or a physical connection with another, the search to rise above the surface of illusion toward the light of divine understanding is a worthy goal.

We often seek the missing parts of ourselves in others, only to be met with disappointment. This craving can drive many to addiction, forever searching for the elusive “other” in the realm of extremes. Through the relentless cycle of trial and error over lifetimes, we can learn to love and accept ourselves just as we are, and loosen our attachment to outcomes. Meditation and sincere self-inquiry help steer you toward a deeper meaning of union, by allowing it to emerge naturally within, like the lotus bloom rising from the depths.

The appearance of this card plays a significant role in your question, and calls you to take comfort in the encompassing presence of union. The thoughts, values, and exchanges you seek to cultivate offer vital clues about how you perceive and experience this basic need. Notice any areas of resistance where energy is blocked. Now may be a good time to address and release buried feelings or preconceptions with the transforming power of union’s connecting frequencies.

Union suggests the possibility of a new relationship, special friendship, creative project, or meditation. The entwining of the divine energy represented by this card could also signify the answer to a prayer.

Listening:

A solitary winged maiden reclines in the canopy of a woodland glade. Her resplendent wings turn inward as she purposefully takes time to engage in listening to the songs of her feathered friends, the birds.

In this modern age, more and more emphasis is placed on the role of speaking out, but few people take time to truly give of themselves by practicing the forgotten art of listening to one another. The deeper implication means we have forgotten how to listen to ourselves, the wisdom which comes from our heart and our connection to nature.

An old Italian proverb says, “From listening comes wisdom.” When we truly listen, we can learn a great deal. In times of crisis we seek out wise people, those who by the virtue of listening have earned the right to be heard.

In addition to listening to others, this intimate art develops a willingness to listen within, to the ever-present forces of the conscience of the soul, and to the voice of Mother Nature. There is no place for loneliness if we allow ourselves to truly listen to their wisdom.

By drawing this card, the Higher Power urges you to be open, responsive, and present in your approach to life. By listening carefully, you will not only gain new insight and perspective, but also bequeath others with one of the most precious gifts of all.
