Valuable Lessons

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Untamed TarotToday’s draw is the Page of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of a receptive omega energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, creativity, or intuition. This often translates into themes that have to do with emotional growth, second chances relationships, or exploring one’s creative pursuits.

The figure in this card holds a flower and looks back in the direction of the past.  She offers this flower to the past and appears just about to turn in that direction, and yet both of her legs still face towards he future.

This card begs the question… what lessons from your  past need revisiting?  Take time to reflect today on what has been left behind as insignificant, but you now realize was a lesson of great value.

Philosophical Question
: Do ghosts exist?

Untamed TarotReading Summary:  This is entirely up to the individual and what they wish to do after death (King of Wands).  Some move on, satisfied with all that they have accomplished and built (Nine of Pentacles), while other stay due to their connections with those they once knew (Three of Pentacles).

Take Away: It appears that the answer is a resounding “yes”, but that not everyone becomes a ghost. These cards indicate that whether one becomes a ghost or not depends heavily on whether or not they feel they have unfinished business yet to tend to.
