Our card for today, Monday, January 18th, is taken from the Fairy Tarot Cards – Four of Spring – “Be grateful; you have much to celebrate! Deep feelings of peace and happiness. A contented personal life.”
The Suit of Spring – Spring is the season when creation begins. Flowers bloom, baby animals are born, the earth warms up, and many people’s hearts become renewed with hope. Exciting things start to happen in the spring. This is also the suit of action! It represents taking action on behalf of our passions and creativity, showing the world our enthusiasm, and having the courage of our convictions. In the suit of spring, we seek out fulfilling careers, display our artistic gifts, and learn how amazing we are. We may even change the world! (Fairy Tarot Cards Guidebook)
4 represents: “The angels are with you. They send you the number 4 to reassure you that they’ve heard your prayers and are helping you.” (Angel Numbers 101)
No matter how bad things are in the world at large, or even in our own personal lives, we must always remember that “this too shall pass”. Even in the midst of strife and struggle, we still have so much to be grateful for. I’m not talking about financial or material things to be grateful for, although if we are financially secure, and have everything we need in the form of material things, then of course we should be very grateful for that, especially in a world where many are facing hard times with losing jobs and homes and material possessions. However even in those circumstances, we can still find much to be grateful for. If we have our health and people who love us and whom we love, then that in itself is reason enough to be thankful.
We have been indoctrinated in today’s society to want so much in the way of material possessions. Just about every advertisement we see tells us we can’t possibly be happy without the latest gadget, or brand name clothing, or newest car, or some other item being displayed on our televisions or in magazines. And just how happy are we when we get these things that we think we need to be happy? Once the novelty wears off, we are back to square one looking for that next item that will hopefully bring us the happiness we are all looking for. However happiness does not come in a box with some new possession. Happiness comes from appreciating and being thankful for all the things in our lives that money can’t buy, like our partner, our children, our friends and family, hobbies we enjoy, and the many beautiful things that happen in our world every day that we don’t see on the news.
So this card is a reminder to take a look around and find all the things in our lives and in our world to celebrate and be thankful for, because if we look at things with eyes and hearts of wonder, or the eyes of a child, we will find that we are rich beyond measure. Remember, the things of this world are temporary and we can’t take them with us when we leave. Learn to treasure the things that money can’t buy, and as we are grateful for all that we have right now, the universe will give us more to be grateful for.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
