Who among us doesn’t want to know what fate has prepared for him? What will happen in our lives in the near future, and whether this can be avoided or used to our advantage. All you have to do is choose the one card you like the most and read your prediction. Let’s start!
1- THE CREATOR
Meaning of the Card: There are two types of creators in the world. One type of creator works with objects – a poet, a painter, they work with objects, they create things.
The other type of creator, the mystic, creates himself. He doesn’t work with objects, he works with the subject; he works on himself, his own being. And he is the real creator, the real poet because he makes himself into a masterpiece.
You are carrying a masterpiece hidden within you, but you are standing in the way. Just move aside, then the masterpiece will be revealed.
Everyone is a masterpiece because God never gives birth to anything less than that. Everyone carries that masterpiece hidden for many lives, not knowing who they are and just trying on the surface to become someone.
Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it. God himself has created you; you cannot be improved.
Commentary on the Card: The Zen master in this card has harnessed the energy of fire and is able to use it for creation rather than destruction.
He invites us to recognize and participate with him in the understanding that belongs to those who have mastered the fires of passion, without repressing them or allowing them to get destructive and out of balance.
He is so integrated that there is no longer any difference between who he is inside and who he is in the world outside. He offers this gift of understanding and integration to all those who come to him, the gift of creative light that comes from the center of his being.
The King of Fire tells us that anything that we undertake now, with the understanding that comes from maturity, will bring enrichment to our own lives and to the lives of others. Using whatever skills you have, whatever you have learned from your own life experience, it is time to express yourself.
Meaning of the Card: The figure on this card is being born anew, emerging from his earthbound roots and growing wings to fly into the unbounded.
The geometric shapes around the body of the figure show the many dimensions of life simultaneously available to him. The square represents the physical the manifest, the known.
The circle represents the unmanifest, the spirit, pure space. And the triangle symbolizes the threefold nature of the universe: manifest, unmanifest, and the human being who contains both.
Now you are presented with an opportunity to see life in all its dimensions, from the depths to the heights.
They exist together, and when we come to know from experience that the dark and the difficult are needed as much as the light and easy, then we begin to have a very different perspective on the world.
By allowing all of the life’s colors to penetrate us, we become more integrated.
When you open up to the ultimate, immediately it pours into you. You are no longer an ordinary human being – you have transcended. Your insight has become the insight of the whole existence. Now you are no longer separate – you have found your roots.
Otherwise, ordinarily, everybody is moving without roots, not knowing from where their heart goes on receiving energy, not knowing who goes on breathing in them, not knowing the life juice that is running inside them.
It is not the body, it is not the mind – it is something transcendental to all duality, that is called bhagavat – the bhagavat in the ten directions…
Your inner being, when it opens, first experiences two directions: the height, the dept. And then slowly, slowly, as this becomes your established situation, you start looking around, spreading into all other eight directions.
And once you have attained to the point where your height and your depth meet, then you can look around to the very circumference of the Universe. Then your consciousness starts unfolding in all ten directions, but the road has been one.
Commentary on the Card: All roads lead back to Source. Whatever the lessons your Soul has arranged to experience in this lifetime and whatever you make of your physical reality in this particular lifetime, all roads lead back to the Divine.
Really there is no right or wrong, just experience. There is a multitude of opportunities open to you in every moment, whether you see them; acknowledge them; take them or reject them, every decision will have a consequence.
Every consequence will lead to a longer road or a shorter road. Every choice will lead down an easier path or a more challenging one. You could completely change directions at any moment and forever alter your life’s journey.
But can you fully comprehend the potential available to you in this realm of infinite possibilities?
Only removing yourself from the everyday routine, the repetitive thoughts, the sameness of your reactions, the limits of your expectations will open the door to the higher dimensions.
Silence, stillness, contemplation, and receptivity are key.
Meaning of the Card: The predominance of red in this card indicates a glance that its subject is energy, power, and strength.
The brilliant glow emanates from the solar plexus or center of power on the figure, and the posture is one of exuberance and determination.
All of us occasionally reach a point when “enough is enough.” At such times it seems we must do something, anything, even it later turns out to be a mistake, to throw off the burdens and restrictions that are limiting us. If we do not, they threaten to suffocate us and cripple our very life energy itself.
If you are now feeling that “enough is enough,” allow yourself to take the risk of shattering the old patterns and limitations that have kept your energy from flowing.
In doing so you will be amazed at the vitality and empowerment this Breakthrough can bring into your life.
To transform breakdowns into breakthroughs is the whole function of a master. The psychotherapist simply patches you up. That is his function. He is not there to transform you. You need metapsychology, the psychology of the Buddhas.
It is the greatest adventure in life to go through a breakdown consciously. It is the greatest risk because there is no guarantee that the breakdown will become a breakthrough. It does become, but these things cannot be guaranteed.
Your chaos is very ancient – for many, many lives you have been in chaos. It is thick and dense. It is almost a universe in itself.
So when you enter into it with your small capacity, of course, there is a danger. But without facing this danger nobody has ever become integrated, nobody has ever become an individual, indivisible.
Zen or meditation is the method which will help you to go through the chaos, through the dark night of the soul, balanced, disciplined, alert.
The dawn is not far away, but before you can reach the dawn, the dark night has to be passed through. And as the dawn comes closer, the night will come darker.”*
Commentary on the Card: We all have moments where we entertain change, then turn a blind eye to these desires and doggedly return to the routine.
We have moments of lucidity, where we suddenly rise above the chaos and can see the broader picture, the truth. Like swimming up to the surface and breaking through, breathing in the fresh, clean air and feeling the sun on our faces… then being dragged back down into the muck by our ever-present fear.
We have come too far to back down now, and it’s time to slay the dragon. Believe that you can do this, and move forward fearlessly, knowing that there really is no backward… not any longer.
Yes, it may seem dark and scary, but have you “let your eyes adjust?” maybe, just maybe, it is all a matter of perspective.
Maybe once your eyes adjust to the dark, you will see that the monster is not nearly as large as he seemed, that your sword is much larger than you realized and that you don’t even need the armor you have been dragging along for so long.
Victory is yours, but you must walk forward, one step at a time, into and through your fear, knowing that there is only light on the other side.
Or, you could just bust straight through it… your choice.
