Each week, I pull a card from a random Tarot deck to bring us a message or piece of wisdom that we can think about or use in our lives on some level – if not now, we can refer back to it when it seems to be more fitting for us. This is food for thought, and not drawn for any one particular person or situation.
This week’s theme is about equilibrium, harmony, and balance. Life can be like a tightrope, and we have to stay focused to maintain balance at times. We have to keep putting one foot in front of the other and make good decisions for each new steps we plan to take.
In this card, an acrobat in costume is featured on a tightrope. She holds a balancing bar to help her stay stabilized. This week, we need to figure out what our own “balancing bar” is to assist us in navigating through life’s tightrope.
It’s a week in which we may need to literally “walk the line.” It’s not a time to rock the boat and upset the balance of a situation. It’s not the time to lose your cool.
Stay focused on the steps in front of you. Keep looking ahead – not behind you or beside you – and definitely don’t look down! In this case, if the walker on the tightrope looks down, she could easily become distracted and lose her balance. This is a week in which we need to try to eliminate some distractions in order to focus on the tasks we have in front of us.
From the Little White Book of Today’s Journey Tarot, on page 23, it tells us that this card “represents that discernment or good judgment is needed. This card suggests a link to the Divine. Use your intuition. Focus on the task at hand. Choose wisely. When you are balanced and focused, the path will become clear. A spiritual presence is offering guidance.”
Look to who or what can help guide you this week. Focus on staying on task and keeping things as balanced as you can. If you can do this, emotions can be healthy ones, and you can enjoy a productive and harmonious week.
