slowing down - osho zen tarot

November 2023 (Slowing Down)

Everything you need is already in your immediate presence. So where exactly is it that you are trying to go in such a hurry? Oftentimes the reason we become stuck in hustle culture is because of societal expectations, self-imposed responsibilities, and the fear of what we want slipping through our grasp if we do not move quickly. It is within the space of this mindset that we actually lose what we truly want instead of gaining it. Pay close attention to what happens around you as you slow your pace. When we move quickly, we forget to see what’s right in front of us and appreciate it for how it makes us feel, what it teaches us and the calm and peacefulness it can invoke in our body. There are so many positive things to be gained by moving mindfully and with intention. Your goal this month is to learn how to be comfortable sitting with yourself and embodying the ease that comes from these moments.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • What important things do I have time to notice when I am moving in a more mindful manner?
  • What are the rules about how fast you actually need to be moving through life, and who set them?
  • How has moving quickly had a negative and positive impact on your life?

8 of Cups R - Light Seer's Tarot

October 2023 (8 of Cups R)

A situation you’ve been struggling with is finally over. And you’re at peace with letting it go. Fortunately, you’ve had all the time you need to process your emotions and slowly release them in your own time. Not all transitions are immediate. So don’t beat yourself up for needing extra time or space to work through it. A lot of other people may have opinions about the way you went about this, and the time frame that you chose. But doing what feels right to you is the only way to move forward without any regrets. Knowing that the space you’re leaving behind no longer has any power over you is such a relief! This newfound feeling of freedom motivates you to try new things and allow yourself to have different experiences. At the same time, it lets you take some fond memories with you as you begin your new journey. The important thing now is to figure out where you want to go and why. And to make choices that are more in alignment with who you are and who you would like to be.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • What am I leaving behind that I can be grateful for?
  • What things am I looking forward to in the future?
  • What things have been instrumental in my releasing process?

the master osho zen tarot

September 2023 (The Master)

You may have accidentally found yourself in a leadership position. This is not something that’s happening to you by choice, rather by the wisdom you have acquired though your life’s experiences. It’s also indicative of the example you set every day by the way you show up in the world. Although you are being asked to lead, know that this is not a space for you to actually be in charge or even throw your weight around. It’s about creating a space that will support others and allow them to find their own path by being in your presence. By mastering your internal world and having the discipline to live your truth, you have discovered that you are the only leader you really need. This is the task you are being assigned to help other people learn for themselves at this time. In order to be effective: Share what you know, allow others to be inspired by your hard work and let them find their own personal truth as you support them on their journey.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • How do I feel about being a leader?
  • How can I allow for learning without trying to control how other people interpret and use the information?
  • What stories do I have to share that can have a profound impact on others?

10 of Wands R - Light Seer's Tarot

August 2023 (10 of Wands R)

It’s time to let it go. Release the responsibilities, burdens and the made-up rules that say you should do this or that. The only person who knows what they’re talking about is YOU. You know your own limits better than anyone else. So why have you been ignoring them for so long? Whatever is happening in your life is a reminder that you don’t actually have to do it all. And it’s important to ask for help when you need it. The right people are ready and willing to assist you if you just say the word. Try to examine your motivation behind your “I can do everything” attitude and ask yourself what you’re really getting out of the situation. Chances are it isn’t the true validation and acknowledgement you’re seeking. Setting solid boundaries and expectations with others is also something that will help you greatly. However, it might take a minute to retrain the people around you to accept this new version of you. Don’t feel like you’re letting anyone down by saying no. There’s always another person around the corner who can help them when you can’t.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • Who makes rules and why are you following them?
  • How do you feel asking for help vs when someone asks you for help?
  • How can you be more mindful about your needs?

clinging to the past - osho zen tarot

July 2023 (Clinging to the Past)

Let go or be dragged my little Rams! Your past is catching up to you in no uncertain terms. While our personal history can be painful, it also leaves us a lot of clues about places we need some work. It also can encourage us to move past difficult situations and process intense feelings that may have occurred as a result. Right now, something is coming up in not-so-subtle ways because it is desperately asking to be healed. Most of us don’t realize that traumatic situations get stored in our body. So even though our mind thinks it has come to terms with everything, our body is still reacting to what happened. And we might not understand enough about what’s happening to make the correlation between the two. Your Spirit is best served by doing some introspective shadow work, practicing self-connection strategies and seeing a therapist or other qualified professional if necessary. Clearing out this difficult roadblock is the key to your future success and happiness.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • What are some situations I know I need to let go of?
  • Am I remembering my past accurately or through the lens of my emotional responses?
  • What are some techniques I can use to get in touch with my body and release stored emotions?

3 of Wands - Light Seer's Tarot

June 2023 (3 of Wands)

You won’t have to wait much longer to get what you want. The amount of preparation you have done is about to pay off! Oftentimes in life we dream big without putting in the necessary effort. No one reminds us that manifesting requires action as well as a good amount of self-reflection. Being honest with ourselves about who we are and what we are capable of is paramount in our ability to accomplish our goals. Having realistic expectations and being willing to do the necessary work is what creates opportunities. Don’t be afraid to learn new things or challenge yourself to push beyond the limits of what you think you can do. It may feel like you’ve done a lot of work without getting much in the sense of rewards. While that in itself can feel frustrating, know that your next big adventure is about to manifest itself. Make sure you’re ready!

Shadow Work Questions:
  • What additions can I make to my skill set that will make me a formidable force?
  • How can I best use this time to get ready for what’s coming?
  • What am I willing to sacrifice for something bigger and better?

experiencing - osho zen tarot

May 2023 (Experiencing & The Dream)

You are about to embark on a new journey that requires you to leave your old self behind. You cannot know how beautiful this new space will be until you can see it for yourself. The tricky part about letting go of things you love (or that have helped define who you are) is dealing with the sadness that comes with it. The duality of change is represented by loss & gain. Sadness & excitement. And the past & future. Each one has positives and negatives which you need to accept in order to shed your skin. It is equally as important to address the dreams you had for yourself in the past and find a way to release them. The new route you will be taking cannot accommodate any of these things. The loss you may feel from this will be profound. Just remember the person you are becoming is no longer interested in the same goals and situations the new you requires in order to thrive. It’s ok to let old dreams die to create space for new ones. Just be sure to process the loss so it doesn’t distract you as you move on to bigger and better things.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • What dreams am I disappointed about losing?
  • How can I get excited about the new space I am stepping into?
  • Where is holding on to things I no longer need keeping me for making progress?
(Two cards came up for you this month. I will be reading the first as your main card and using the second as an accent.)

5 of Wands - Light Seer's Tarot

April 2023 (5 of Wands)

It’s okay if you’re chasing the same thing as other people. As long as you get there first! This month’s energy shows you in a race to achieve a particular goal. The only trick is that there are a lot of other people who are competing for the same space. Instead of letting this thought discourage you, use it as motivation to light your fire. Even though you are one of many, the gifts and talents that you have are sure to stand out. In order to come out on top you’ll need to apply consistent pressure and meet people’s needs by doing things your way. Not by copying what everyone else is doing! Your originality and flair are what will set you apart in a sea of people who are a little more basic. Putting your own unique spin on things makes what you have to offer more fun. It will also make the experience more memorable for the people you are working with. Remember that sometimes it’s more about the experience that you create than it is about the actual service being provided. Making people feel good carries more weight than you think.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • How can I achieve my goals in a way that suits my unique personality?
  • What do I have to offer that other people don’t?
  • How can I capitalize on what I bring to the table?

thunderbolt osho zen tarot

March 2023 (Thunderbolt)

You will not have a lot of choice in the events that are about to happen. Some of your internal processes need to be stripped away so they can be reconstructed more effectively. The problem with the inner work that needs to be done is that without this looming shake up, the necessary changes will never take place. You are not able to consciously witness what’s happening. Or how your behaviors or thoughts are negatively impacting the choices you make as well as how you move through the world. It will feel uncomfortable at first. Especially because things will continue to change and get stripped away as the process progresses. But the end result is the stronger, more self-aware and powerful version of you. The more you resist the longer this transformation will take. The more you lean in and embrace it, the faster it will come to a close.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • How comfortable am I with change?
  • What is one thing I can do to embrace the transformation I’m experiencing?
  • How can I be more open-minded when I’m experiencing a large amount of resistance?

Queen of Cups - Light Seer's Tarot

February 2023 (Queen of Cups)

Your emotions are balanced and in check. This is because you are finally in control of them instead of allowing them to be in control of you. With this new revelation you are able to effectively hold space and share compassion with others who are in need of structure or guidance. Don’t be afraid to open your heart to new experiences. You are connecting intuitively on a deeper level that will allow you to avoid any pitfalls you may have previously attracted.  Part of your newfound success in this area is attached to the realization that duality plays a large role in the emotions that you feel. The situations you find yourself in may not always be easy. This concept relies on difficult things being present along with easy things. The healthy emotional state you cultivate will allow you to rise above or push through the unwanted parts of this journey.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • Where am I unknowingly suppressing my emotions and how can I express them more effectively?
  • How can I be honest about what’s happening while still seeing the positive aspects of the situation?
  • What are some ways in which my openness and compassion can benefit others?

creativity - osho zen tarot

January 2023 (Creativity)

Your inner fires are burning bright and asking to be expressed in whatever form feels best. Your emotions have a lot to say. But they cannot share their wisdom unless you help them along. A physical manifestation of your inner world is waiting to come to life. It doesn’t matter what type of modality you pick. Whether it’s arts and crafts, music, painting, sculpture or something else; Its unique representation will make other people feel more at home. If you’re feeling lost or unsure of where to start, tap into the universal source energy. It will show you the way or give you some guidance as well as inspiration for this up-and-coming project. Don’t worry about how pretty or perfect what you’re doing looks. That’s not really the point. It’s more about having fun and feeling joyful as you paint the world with your eclectic colors.

Shadow Work Questions:
  • What is my favorite way to express myself?
  • Which emotions am I feeling most intensely right now?
  • How can I talk to the world without using words?
