Queen of Cups and the Chariot

Queen of Cups

What’s going on now: Queen of Cups – The Queen of Cups places us in a state of emotional awareness and readiness. We have the ability to communicate this state clearly to others and, if necessary, with the full benefit of our imagination. We are prepared to take charge emotionally, if and when we are called upon.

 

 

 

Major07-bWhat’s getting in the way: The Chariot – With the above-mentioned emotional confidence, we just might choose to rush in too quickly. We also need to be conscious of the mental swirl going on inside our minds. During this busy time, what can we do to help ourselves remain grounded and focused?

Card of the Day: The Chariot

Major07-b

It’s interesting. My passion for the Tarot often enters into all aspects of my life. I was discussing support options with the parent of a child with ADHD and it got me thinking. What card represents an attention deficit?

I was drawn right a way to the Chariot. This card represents a force that is driven and focussed, but can also have blinders on, can be focussed on all of the wrong things or often represents that blind motion. We’ve all had that feeling. Stephen Covey best describes it with the following paraphrased anecdote.

You’re travelling along at great speed. You know it and you feel in control. You can sense that you’re making progress. Things are moving by you at blinding speed. For a point of reference, you decide it’s time to slow down and look at your map. As you reach over and unfold the map of New York City, you realize that you’re travelling in Los Angeles!

The Chariot can often drive us. We just need to ensure that we’ve got the correct landscape around and that we’re moving in the right direction.

I’m not sure how or why my conversation about ADHD drew me to reflect on the ‘shadow side’ of trump #7. It also got me thinking; maybe there’s a “Schoolyard Tarot” in the future. Stay tuned for card 0: The First Day of School!  🙂
