Tarot card for today, 14 May 2008
This card always reminds me of the old Chinese proverb that in
chaos lies opportunity.
This idea has come up in several readings I've done lately, so I am
sharing the idea with all of you, hoping it will give you a little hope
It also is a prime example of the Modern Oracle reading philosophy.
Here is what I mean:
"In chaos lies opportunity"
Almost everyone has stressfull times in life where it seems everything is
in chaos...there are lots of changes and lots of decisions to be
made, lots of demands on your attention and your time...
Times like that are a decision point...and a major lesson to learn.
That is why the lesson of the Tower card is part of the Major Arcana...
It isn't an easy lesson, change isn't easy, and many of us would rather
But here is the opportunity part...
when you are making a lot of changes and decisions, you may be
under stress buy you are also exercising a great deal of control. The
choices you are making now will impact....will craft and
create...your future. Yes, work may be stressful....but that might be a
gift. It might be the situation that forces you to take a realistic look
at your career, how satisfying it is, whether it is time to change or
not. Stress and chaos gives us the gift of mindful deliberate decisions.
When we decide, we control...where there is control there is in time
The only way chaos can keep you stressed is if you release the power
of choice that comes right along with it.
Chaos in itself isn't the problem. Change and upheaval gives us a
chance to re-evaluate things and make different choices...even if
that choice is to stay where we are and decide NOT to change...at
least it was a deliberate and mindful choice, not just static, hum-
drum, stuck-in-a-rut inertial. If it weren't for chaos, we may not
appreciate what we have or how we like things the way they are.
When change and chaos comes, then we are given the chance to
choose...those choices help you create a new life if you want one,
Those choices help you create and manefest the future that YOU
want - not one predicted by a psychic or consigned to you by fate.
Towers are also navigation points...like lighthouses, or old fort
The times of chaos in our lives can serve as navigation points. Look
back at the times when things got out of synch and stressfull, and
what can you learn? What are the common denominators? What
can you learn about yourself? Do you need to go a different way or
are you on the right track? Looking at these things doesn't
necessarily mean that you need to make a change...sometimes life
will give us confirmations...spiritual pats on the back to let us know
we are on the right way. These times are an opportunity to be
touched by the light, and touch base with the essence of who we
are and where we come from.
Wishing you beneficial chaos, and reassuring towers just when you
need them along lifes way...to give you light and help you craft a
