Justice, Dream Enchantress Tarot
Theme: "serving as a mysterious bridge between the conscious and subconscious"
Dream Enchantress Tarot
Card: VIII Justice
"The seeds of the present were planted in the past. What is planted now will grow in the future. What you harvest is not arbitrary. Standing before the sword and the balance, you can't help but wonder... are the seeds your intentions or your actions or their results?"
It seems to be a quite common phenomena to feel that "things happen to you". And of course how I used to see and feel things too. When in fact, much of what's happening is the harvest of what you've sown in the past - consciously or unconsciously.
Better make the sowing conscious, and soulful - soulful intentions and actions, instead of merely wilful ditto.
Otherwise (often "bad") things will continue to "happen to you", in an seemingly chaotic way.
I am very much faced with the challenge to cope with this outside me. People not willing to see. People not willing to face their own shit. People running and hiding.
"The reversed Justice card can suggest that internally, you know you've done something that isn't morally right.
...you can hide it and hope no-one finds out, or you can own up to your mistakes and take focused action to resolve the situation. Whichever you choose, you will need to live with the consequences on your conscience, so go with what feels right for you." (biddy) How to be and behave when being with and talking to people you love not wanting to acknowledge and take responsibility for the consequences of their actions?
"Similarly, Justice reversed suggests that you are not willing to take full accountability for your actions and may try to 'dodge the bullet' and blame others for your mistakes. You are being dishonest with yourself and others - and your unwillingness to look beyond your own fears and ego blinds you to the broader lesson." (biddy) It's not comfortable to stand right beside looking. Seeing the "denial", knowing how much it hurts, knowing how tough it is to face.
"Assess your situation once more, this time intending to discover where you can accept responsibility. Once you acknowledge where you made a mistake, do whatever you can to make it right again. In doing so, you will free yourself from any guilt or shame and empower yourself to make better decisions." (biddy) Can you make someone making better decisions? Can you make someone "wake up"? I afraid, no. But I do believe I can inspire, by "lead by example". By being me. Through building trust. Through "creating an environment" that feels safe to "open up" in. Through...unconditional love. "Serving as a mysterious bridge between the conscious and subconscious" - sensing/intuit what to bring up from the unconscious - feel, see and care for the most pressing issue - rational or not (most probably not).
Of course - only possible in combination with 'will and effort' on behalf of the other part.
It takes two to tango.
Deck: Spiral Tarot (some comfort - in my feeling that there is an, no matter how slow, upward spiralling trend)
Card: The High Priestess
"Insight, using your intuition"
"...the world is not always as it seems and more profound influences are often at play. She ushers you through the thin veil of awareness, offering you a deep, intuitive understanding of the Universe and a heightened awareness of secret or hidden information."
"The answers you are seeking will come from within, from your deepest truth and 'knowing'."
"Knowledge of how to fix these issues will not come through thinking and rationalising, but by tapping into and trusting your intuition..."
"Feel, rather than think. Collaborate, rather than compete. Create, rather than destroy. Trust your Divine Feminine energy, even if the masculine energy around you may appear to be stronger. Be proud of your ability to nurture, trust, sense, and empathise instead of hiding it away." (biddy)
