As recent victims of a crime, very good friends, family members and other well-wishers smothered us with good food, kind words, advice and expressions of hope. I know from experience it’s hard to inspire genuine hope at a time when it feels as if everything around is crashing and crumbling. Things are different and change isn’t coming, change is now. Like an anvil on Bugs Bunny cartoons, something has dropped on your head and smashed you into the ground. Will you lay there smushed or will you get up (still flattened), but ready to inflate and live again? How can your inner light shine again? How can you feel free, safe, joy, or just plain stable again?
Today I’d like to talk about Major Arcana cards that represent Hope.
The Star card is a guiding light. Having the Star show in a spread is positive whether right side up or inverted, but it makes no promises of time, just that hope and healing will come. It suggests clarity and insight, cups that will one day overflow. Inverted it means there will be worries, yet goods things will be.
The Sun card is the card of Glory. Promises of a day in the Sun, enlightenment, birth (possibly twins), success, truth and hope. As the Moon card speaks of things coming to us from the unconscious, the Sun card represents discoveries we make while awake and aware. Sometimes when cards are inverted they mean the opposite, but the Sun card inverted means to sit back and watch things unfold.
We, each of us, needs hope to survive. We need hope to make it through each day, sometimes through mere moments of said day. Whether you have hopes for a nose job, a new job, or just A job, hope is a necessity. How can your life path be altered to see these things come to pass? Perhaps you are sitting on the cusp of your dreams? Regardless, getting a reading from one of our awesome readers just might be the boost you need to see some good things come your way!
