A Jungian approach to Tarot
It may feel like you are meeting resistance outside – that events and things are conspiring to push you down, to hold you back, to sabotage what it is that you have so lovingly nurtured. But what if that resistance were coming from inside you, and then being reflected by events and things outside you? What if you are in some key way the architect of your own experience?
The Princes are nothing if not fighters, and you have a cohort of them available to you. Find your voice, find your passion, find your plan. Go out and put some skin in the game. There are no guarantees about outcome, but the Princes aren’t particularly interested in outcome as much as the adventure itself.
This is a situation that may well feel familiar to you: the feeling of being trapped by a lack of clarity or clear direction; a sense of mental overwhelm; a distraction that has become disproportionate; a state where what was attractive is now overblown and which is taking up a lot of mind-space.

Having needed to move within these past few weeks before going anywhere with a particular plan or seed of an idea, you are now ready to set things in motion by releasing it into the world. By doing this, you also liberate yourself in a way that is personally meaningful to you.
The darkness of the mystery is looking for the light of your awareness – just as you are looking for the darkness. Together, when that inner meeting takes place, they create momentum.
You don’t have answers? You don’t need answers. You have questions? Great. Now give yourself, and The Hermit, enough solitude to work this alchemy.
The cards and my unruly laptop have spoken, and I’ll be publishing the Tarotcast tomorrow rather than today – which, as synchronicity would have it, is very much on point with the message of the cards themselves.
Don’t discount anything; scrutinise everything. The Ace of Swords has the ability to fire up that blueprint that you were drawing up in a way that imbues it with meaning and gets the cogs turning and machinery whirring.
