#Tarot #Meditation // The Devil + Hierophant + Lovers
The Devil encourages us to believe in our limitations; to humble ourselves and minimize our greatness. In part, he is disguised as the Ego, the voice within that trivializes our spirit and makes us forget our power. When the Devil appears, we are to remind ourselves that we contain two sides to ourselves & that this duality requires balance. The Devil is not outside of us but within, at its finest, he teaches us about accountability. Most choose to disregard this lesson, blaming others for their own doings or residing in victimization rather than empowerment of self. We will encounter our darker aspects, or less admirable qualities that we'd much rather stuff away. The Hierophant challenges the status quo and the wave that so many others follow. Question the traditions, practices, rituals & beliefs you have acquired until now. Are they truly yours or did you subconsciously absorb them? Some of these may be extremely limiting to your potential and will need to be evaluated so that you can break free from their chains. It is a great time to educate yourself about yourself. Get to know the real you, when everything is on be table: how you operate, your reasoning, motivation & intentions. What are your excuses and why do you make them? Who are you without that mask? The Lovers reveals that we are furthering our own connection with self, with our shadows and our light. It is then that we will encounter a partner that is truly for us but until then you will have to learn how to become your own soulmate and thus know your soul. The Lovers is revealed when important decisions are to be made that will change the course of our lives. It's time to lead yourself in a different direction, one that is more authentic to who you thought you were in the past. We are ever evolving, allow your choices to mirror the maturity & wisdom that you have blossomed into. Listen carefully to how your ancestors lead you, where they'd like the healing to occur and to what your heart resonates with. Knowing what you know now; what will you decide to choose?
