TAROT Card of the Day – Tarot Lesson
This Queen represents a person driven by her passions. She could be intense, creative and lives life to the fullest. She has wisdom from all the experience she had. She constantly learns and strives to better herself. She also makes sure that her passion guides her like a beacon, and uses it to achieve whatever it is that makes her love life. She is like a magnet. People are drawn to her contagious energy.
She is loyal and would support those who need her help, provided that they also help themselves. She easily gets bored with people who seem to just drift in life. She sticks to her principles and has a tendency to even fight for this to the death. Because of her fire, she finds it a challenge to compromise.
This Queen could also represent a situation where one has found the courage to pursue his/her passion and live life the way he/she always wanted – in spite of all the responsibilities and obligations of everyday life. It is a huge burst of energy that spurs this courage.
In our family and our community, we see people who are successful because they do what they love to do. For them, it is not work at all but “pure enjoyment coupled with discipline and perseverance” – the elements of that steady fire that drives us to success.
Going back to the LWB meaning, no matter how challenging it is, we must be able to use this fire to pursue happiness and that which makes us whole. It could be a hobby, an activity, a calling, helping our community or our favourite charity, or whatever it is we feel would complete us.
Our daily responsibilities usually bog us down. However, we also have a responsibility to take care of ourselves. No matter how tired we are or spent we feel, engaging and cultivating our interests could help us regenerate for another day. This is also a terrific way to de-stress. All work and no play will make all of us dull and eventually “lifeless, like a husk.”
In the meantime, if we find it hard to determine what our passion is, we must discover our soul’s purpose. This will definitely guide us.
Take care! Many blessings to you!
