Lion's Gate Tarot August 8-14

The Reverse Page of Cups in the first position is signifying that there is something that is potentially draining you or feeling like a creative block. It may also be a signal of neediness, meaning this is not a cup that can be filled in this position. It is just going to keep needing until the perspective can change and something shifts. Usually, that requires a visit inward and asking “what it is that we need to feel whole?” What is my role on the pathway to that journey? What can I do to shake things up to get out of the draining rut I feel like I am in right now? This is a good opportunity to treat yourself to something that you have wanted to try but for whatever reason, you’ve been holding yourself back. Justice wants you to be honest with yourself. Justice is all about choice, consequence and integrity. You are the Co-creator of your life. Are you being fair with yourself? Are you being fair with others? 3 of Wands is bringing in a shift. It feels like taking a real honest look at your life, taking responsibility and being honest will set you towards where you want to go. 3 of Wands card represents commitment, progress, foresight, opportunity, adventure, expansion. Allow the reflection to shine light on what you actually want and what is no longer serving you. What are the people and things in your life that bring you inspiration and accountability?

Moon – surrender, mystery, looming change

Creature’s paw – the other, friendship, forgiveness

Volcano – patience, repression, lust

Jamaica Kincaid – Lineage, the past, deep time

Jamaica Kincaid (b. 1949) was born on Antigua, a former slave-owning British colony in the West Indies. Eager to get away, she moved to the United States at 18 to work as an au pair. Soon after, she began writing New Yorker articles and intense, biting fiction and nonfiction, which speaks with tremendous authority and clarity and often repeats images and phrases in an insistent invective against the failures of mothers, fathers, siblings and colonialism.

Sacred Fool – The fool is a great rebel, able to thwart convention and tell the truth without restraint. Your heart is a wonderful, powerful, sacred fool! It cares not for the right way to do things. It cares not for what the mind says is real and not real. It lives according to an inner wisdom that cannot be dictated to or controlled by anything! It loves, it lives and it is what it is!

This oracle heralds a time – now or imminent – when you will feel inspired, alive and passionate for what you can offer to the world. It says to you “Don’t try to be appropriate, don’t try to be socially acceptable and worry about what others may think about what you are doing – just be. If you want to wear a mad hat whilst doing so, fine.”

The sacred fool in you is willing to leave behind what has been because it no longer feels right to stay attached to it. The sacred fool in you trusts life completely. It would never occur to this part of you to try and outsmart life or resist its flow. It recognizes that the mind is a monkey puppet on strings. Are often than not, it is cajoled into fear when it could be playfully dwelling in the radical spontaneity of life. So, the sacred fool in you urges not into fear and doubt by the controlling machines of mass media.

This oracle brings you a message. It’s time for you to play. It’s time for you to let life happen in a completely unreserved unscripted way. The more bizarre, left of field, unexpected and apparently ridiculous the better. This might not feel safe or appropriate at first. That is okay. That is good actually. It is a sign that you are breaking with your own self-imposed conventions. It is time to move beyond them now because a bigger life adventure is calling to you.
