Three card reading for Wednesday, January 20, 2016 comes from the Tarot of the Hidden Realm by Barbara Moore, illustrated by Julia Jeffrey. Llewellyn Publications, 2013.
Life Renewed (Judgement) – Four of Cups – The Magician
You might be feeling a little discontent without really knowing why. You long for something else, something new, just something. In the Four of Cups we see a Selkie who has returned to her home where she transforms back into her true form. The selkie can experience life as a seal and as a human, but these dual longings do not make for a happy existence. No matter where she is, she longs for the other life. This card represents such a situation; dissatisfaction with what you have and wishing for something you don’t have.
Fortunately, the remedy is at hand. Card XX, Life Renewed, is about a clean slate. A do-over. However, in this card there is no judgement as we expect to see in the traditional Tarot. This card brings more than just a clean slate; it brings a clean slate with a purpose. It gives you the opportunity to begin anew to become what you are meant to be. With the help of The Magician energy you’re assured you new beginning will be successful. He brings the power to manifest. Through the force of your will and the skillful use of your emotions, intellect, and resources, you can accomplish great things.
