How many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?

(Peter, Paul, and Mary:  The Answer Is Blowing In The Wind)

 

The Answer Is Blowing In The Wind

The Answer Is Blowing In The Wind!  When the Tower Tarot Card shows up in a Reading, it speaks of a dramatic change in your life.  And there is nothing you can do about it…

It is not your fault.  You did not do anything bad.  This storm is not of your making.  Nor are you getting punished for some reason.

From time to time in everyone’s life, the winds of change blow in our direction.  When you wonder why this is happening to you, the answer my friend is blowing in the wind!  The Air Element is taking over your life for a little while; you are powerless over this kind of storm.

Feeling Powerless to do anything about it

Feeling Powerless to do anything about it can be one of the worse feelings ever.  You may feel anxious, even panicked.  Your brain says “let’s get the Hell out of here!; your heart says:  “are you kidding me, I ain’t going nowhere – this is scary”.

When you feel powerless over the Element of Air, all you can do is to stop fighting it.  Consider the Wind.  A strong wind does its thing relatively quickly, during a relatively small amount of time.  This, while making its way to where it is heading out.

During the time that it does go on, the Wind does its ravages.  You are powerless to make it turn around and make it go towards somewhere else.   You cannot “Will” the blowing of the Wind.

All you can do is to drop both arms to both sides.  Wait till its all over.  Assess the damages in your life.  Pick up the pieces of what is left; and then go forward from there.

Assessing the damages

Assessing the damages is the worst part.  After the storm has moved on, there will be feelings of confusions and amazement at first; you are still alive and kicking. You will have to look around and pick up your broken pots, sort out your possessions, and repair what you can.

The good news is, after the storm, the Sun will always come out and shine above again.  You will be able to see a rainbow up in the distance.  Family, friends and neighbors will come over to see if you are OK and what help they can give you.

It may very well be that you will feel discouraged for a while, but that too shall pass.  Keep encouraging yourself by repeating the following Tarot Affirmation.  “Things can only get better from now on!”

A Dramatic Change In Your Life

A Dramatic Change In Your Life always occurs rather suddenly.  It will feel like things are happening way too fast.  Like as if, events are spinning out of control; like time itself is fast forwarding.

Acceleration is the Key Word for this Major’s Card.  However, Crowley insists upon it being:  War!  It is the Element of Fire that makes this a “dark card in the Magick Arcana.  However, “it is less realistic with the mental and spiritual realms.”, Jodorowsky.

In particular, consider this Tower Card in the Llewellyn’s Tarot Deck.  Notice that the Wind and Lightning are in the dark of the night, and the upper North areas of the rectangle (squares 8, 9, 10 and in some parts of 6 and 7).  Again, according to Jodorowsky, this kind of change that is blowing in the wind, indicates that this storm is a –  sudden “strong action.” An act of God, if one may express it this way.

Both in the Tarot de Marseille and Thoth decks, the Tower Tarot Card depicts the garrison guards either falling or having been ejected from the Tower.   These represent your inner guards you put up against the reality of your inner life. How we feel about something, is not necessarily how it is in reality.  Our feelings are but subjective.

This card speaks of an inner war going on within yourself.  Some may prefer to call this inner war, a war between our good conscious and our bad conscious.  A war between our sense of doing right and doing wrong.  This inner war mainly occurs within yourself, “when we become aware of the perfection and the imperfection with us”, Crowley.

A Matter of Life and Death

A Matter of Life and Death is about mentioning a deep, dark event brought on by the storms of the war within our inner self.  Normally, when a swift change takes place in our life, we humans are resilient!

A Human Being has the basic instinct of survival.  Either we adapt to changes or we will die.  This said, just because we have survival instincts, it does not go to say that sometimes we do not struggle with wanting to put an end to the changes we undergo in our life. Changes such as a divorce, the death of a spouse or a child, the loss of a job or even a new job, etc…  Some people go through all of these changes within a few months even.  This is when there is a struggle between wishing to die versus wishing to live on.

If we think that one sudden, unexpected change in our life is hard enough, just imagine undergoing four or five major life changes coming at you all at once.  This can be devastating for the average person.  It causes a series of major stresses all at once!

This is when there is a struggle between wishing to die versus wishing to live on.  A depression accompanied by a major disease is often the outward manifestation of misadapting to a major change in our life.  A change about which we simply can not stop ahead of time before it happens to us; like a hurricane, for example.

The Anwer is Blowing in The Wind of Acceptance

The Answer Is Blowing In The Wind of Acceptance, letting go, and letting our very nature do its thing.  When the Tower Tarot Card shows up in a Reading, it speaks of a dramatic change in our life that makes us question our very existence.  And there is nothing you can do about it, but to accept, let go, and place your trust in your survival instincts.

About Tarot Magickal Correspondences

About Tarot Magickal Correspondences is an article written as an encouragement to use the Keys of the Tarot.  As in any other form of magickal Divination, Correspondences are a link to ancient knowledge.  They work because it is part of our basic human nature to use them.

The Forest Of The Ancients – Poem by Moon Spell

As I walk through the forest of the ancients,
The trees, they whisper to me in foreign tongue,
An uncertain magick courses through my body,
And through my veins, I feel it run…
I now see the mysticism, beauty,
Of what’s now perceived to be faery tale…
The ground is scattered with leave and root,
An infinite growth of infinite youth,
Yet all will whither as time shall pass,
The moon shines bright but it cannot last…

About Tarot Magickal Correspondences

About Tarot Magickal Correspondences goes directly to the relationship between the Tarot Reader and her/his Querent.  Our clients come to us to know more about situations in their lives.  They wish for the Cards to give them enlightenment and guidance.

When a Tarot Reader picks up her Cards so to Read for the Querent, she does not take half of the deck so to shuffle it; she shuffles the entire deck of Cards. Just as one does a Full Tarot Reading with a “full deck”, one performs the Reading with the full knowledge of the Tarot Magickal Correspondences.  These are part of the Magick of the Tarot.

It is our individual abilities, talents, and divinatory powers that will shape the interpretation of the Cards.  The Sitter has two related intents.   The First, is to “know” exactly what is going on around them.  The second is to find out what to do about it and how to resolve it adequately.

What are Tarot Magickal Correspondences?

What are Tarot Magickal Correspondences?   We already know that Divination is a form of Magick.  In most Traditional Tarot Decks, Magickal Correspondences are already present and accounted for in those.

Magickal Correspondences “help us focus intent and direct energy as we weave our intentions on the Web of Life”, Llewellyn’s The Complete Book of Correspondences, by Sandra Kynes.  Some Tarot Cards are included in this book of Correspondences, but just not all the Cards.  Same goes for Angels and times of day, etc.  Rare are the plants that actually have respective applications and usages.  But all in all, it is a good place to start as a beginner Tarot Reader.

Beginner Tarot Readers soon realize that the Tarot Cards are also a visual play by play of one’s spiritual progression in life, and on the Web of Life.  Upon the Path of our Spiritual Progression here, we “weave ideas, beliefs, energy that provide a deeper psychological meaning to our Walk, rituals and spellwork”, Sandra Kynes.  Miss Kynes goes on to say,  that “Magical Correspondences are like ‘Keys,’ that combine to unlock and tap into powers that aid us in putting forward our intentions.”  Bill Whitcomb, The Magician’s Companion, says that “Magic uses the ‘relationship’ between consciousness (knowing), information (being), and energy (doing), symbols (attributions)…

Correspondences to the Divination Tarot Card

Correspondences to the Divination Tarot Card-  is not about reinventing the wheel.  It is not my intention here to give you a bunch of ‘never seen before’ Correspondences to the Moon Card.  However, for those of you who are into Correspondences and who are curious enough to continue reading, I will endeavor to piece together some Moon Card Correspondences I have gathered for myself down through the years.  Not all of them mind you, but some.  Moreover, most importantly, those I have found that work for me.  Those that work for you, you may take as your own.  And leave behind those that do not – for you!

You may also want to compare my list of Tarot Correspondences for the Moon Card, to your own.  Our lists may be identical.  And then again, it may not.

The Moon Card

The Moon Card is a great Card to use when we want to trace our Fool’s Spiritual progression on our Journey.  Consider the Moon.  The Moon reflects down to us valuable energies needed so to see what is going on around us; this, for our protection and safety.  The Moon Card reminds us of the gift of insight, clair seeing.

Prison Tarot Card – Evergreen Readings

Prison Tarot Card is the Strength Card.  This Card speaks of the times during which we go into isolation so to affect change – for the common good.  This is why the keyword for this card can easily be “Prison”.  In the Llewellyn Tarot Deck, the Strength Card is called the Temperance Card…  Keep reading to find out why I use this deck in particular for this article on the Prison Card.

I always yell at myself asking why me? Why?

Sitting in a empty spare room.

No one to talk to about how I feel.

No one to ask me what I feel.

Is anyone out there in this harsh world we live in?

Sometimes I begin to wonder.

Sometimes I’m harsh on myself.

Morn comes and I wake up wishing I was never born.

Please help others, because today’s lives

Are being taken out of this world just as easy as they are coming in.

You can change someone’s life.

Make a change.

It’s a tough world.

Prison Tarot Card

Prison Tarot Card depicts a Deep Well.   To be down a deep well is likened to being in a prison of sorts.  Alone,  and alienated from the rest of humanity, we hit rock bottom; we face our fears alone.  We have crossed the line in our thoughts, ideas, and emotions …

Each and every one us draws a line in the sand.  Our line in the sand represents to us our sanity, our good common sense.  It is our good conscious warning us to get a grip before we lose control over our life.

When the Strength Card is pulled in a Reading, it is our conscious trying to tells us that it will not let us cross the line in the sand that we have drawn for ourselves.  We promise ourselves not to cross the line when stepping out for a drink with friends, or when we go to visit Mary Jane.  We promise ourselves that we will never cross the line when we get mad at the boss, or at our children.  We draw many lines in the sand; one for each of the situations we live through.  Moreover, for each one of these lines, we promise ourselves never to cross it.

The Line in the Sand

The Line in the Sand reminds us to stay on this side of the line.  This side of the line represents a balanced life.  Equilibrium!

For us who prefer a balanced lifestyle, the other side of the line represents our fears.  Our fear of being in scary places with scary people who do scary things.  It is because of our concerns that we make a promise to ourselves to always keep our control in check.

The prison of the Super-sensitives

The prison of the super-sensitives is the Well.  Super-sensitive people go down a Well full of thoughts and ideas and emotions they sense in other people.  A Super-sensitive person can pick up these vibrations, absorb them, and transform them.  A Super-sensitive person is at his or her happiest when alone restoring the environment back to its state of Equilibrium (balance).  For balance is the natural order of things.

As far as the Super-sensitive is concerned, it is indeed a sad state of affairs when “the natural order of things” goes on Tilt.  He or she becomes highly aware that it is not just a few persons going on Tilt, but things, people, and events; and that those are all part of a “Global Pattern”.  As the Super-sensitive quickly pick up on Global Patterns, he/she will retreat to a safe place like as if to a self-imposed prison of sorts.  Super-sensitives are different” like that.

People who are different

People who are “different” are most often than not – a Super-sensitive.  They see things from a different perspective than most.  They often get bullied just because they are different.  Because they feel things in a very sensitive way, it does not take much to hurt their feelings.

Super-sensitive people represent a relatively small percentage of the global population.  That is why they stand alone against a crowd of bullies treating them unfairly.  When a Super-sensitive hears or sees an injustice, he or she is usually the first to speak up and defend the victim.

Often, a Super-Sensitive will be called crazy.  Even the Super-sensitive will think herself/himself crazy.  Because they see spirits and things unseen; they feel things unfelt by the average person.  “They can see and feel both the Yin/Yang in individuals, governments, laws, politics, and religions; as these are locked in fear”, Catherine Avizinis.

Super-sensitives are needed among us

Super-sensitives are needed among us to bring balance.  Moreover, this is what the Balance/Fortitude/Strength/the Well/Prison Card indicates to us.  That the world needs people who accept to “profoundly say, do, and feel things – all within the good measure of course.  It would be a cold world otherwise.

Our world here on Hearth is full of people that do both the good and bad.  In our world here, there are both the good and the bad situations and events.  We need to accept the fact that there are both “positive and negative” ideas and thoughts, emotions and feelings, actions and reactions in all of us.  The Super-sensitives are those among us that have the Will and clear intent to make it a better world for all of our sakes.

Super-sensitives feel soooo profoundly and to the extent of actually consenting to go into a self-imposed isolation.  They deliberately absorb and transform both the negatives and the positives in other people.  Because doing so – restores Equilibrium (balance) in the world.

So the next time you pull the Strength Card/the Well Card, keep at the front of your mind that it is also a “prison Card”.  The Querent has deliberately isolated herself/himself in order to find balance in their life.  That this is the sacrifice he/she is prepared to do.  Your Querent is the Super-sensitive that has agreed to come to live here in this lifetime, to become engulfed by excess negative energy to bring balance back – by absorbing and transforming it.  Click on The Strength Card to read more about this Card.

Where is the Hangman Card?

Where is the Hangman Card?  Look for the Hangman Card to see if it is in the Spread.   If the Hangman Card and the Strength Card are side by side or close to each other, then know that your Querent’s situation is redeemable.

A Super-sensitive will not only isolate herself/himself so to restore balance to a situation, they will also find in it a personal relief against bullies.  Not because the Super-sensitive is hiding from a bully.  But rather, because a Super-sensitive knows that this is their purpose in life, to relieve the hurts in this world by their self-sacrifice of “absorbing and transforming the hurt of a bully into healing the bully”.  Another way to say the word “healing”  is to say:  “change for the good”!  This is how a Super-sensitive feels at their happiest; when he/she feels the World need them to restore balance.  By uplifting the human soul; by restoring balance to the natural order of things.

The Prison Tarot Card is the Strength Card (Temperance).  This Card reveals that it is the right moment in time for your Querent to go down the “Well of emotions.”  That it is time to go into self-isolation, like as if to prison.  To absorb and transform the Global Pattern of fears, and to heal it by manifesting change  –  for the common interest (“The good of the many outweigh the good of the one”, Spock).  This is why the keyword for this card can easily be “Prison”, or even “the key.” 🙂
