Dragon Tarot Card of the Day for April 27 2008

SIX OF WANDS Reversed. This card is usually about victory, successful attainment of your objectives. However it is reversed. This indicates that you are not successful in reaching your objectives. What I see in the card today is: You thought you won, you got your way, but you actually did not get what you wanted. In the winning, you lost. Winning was more important to you then the damage you were doing to get your way. There are just some things that you just cannot undo or take back once it is done. You lost sight of what you really wanted and concentrated on winning or being right. You lost the very thing you were fighting for.

You thought that if you got your way things would be one way and they are not. People don’t respect you because of your title, they may respect the title, but you as an individual have to earn their respect. Being right does not mean that you are going to be happy. As Dr. Phil has been known to say: “Would you rather be happy or right?” If being right is more important then dealing with others respectfully and considering their feelings and opinions to be just as valuable as your own it does not matter if you win or not, you lost.

It is time you refocused and re-evaluated your goals and objectives. What are you giving up for them and how are you going about it. Have you become so focused on the end goal that it is all you care about?

This is a warning card because you have tunnel vision so bad that you don’t even see the damage you are doing, the bridges you are burning. You are sacrificing things you don’t need to. There is nothing wrong with continuing going after your goal, just be more aware of what you are doing and rethink what you value.

Dragon Tarot Card of the Day for April 26 2008

EIGHT OF SWORDS. This card is about frustration, the need for patience and being unable to see the way out of a problem. What I see in the card today is: You have blinded yourself from the clear path out of your problems because you know that the solution is going to hurt you. You are going to have to give things up, some people are not going to like you because of what you have to do to get out of this problem. No one is going to step up and do it for you, no quick fixes here.

You need to take that blind fold off and actually see what your actions are doing. You got yourself into this with your eyes open, now you can only get out of it with your eyes open. It is not going to be easy or fun for you. The only way out is to accept the consequences and you are not willing to do that right now. You want someone else to do that for you and let you get out Scot-free and that is just not going to happen. Until you are willing to face up to the consequences and understand that you got yourself into this, there is no one else to blame, then you are just going to stay where you are, digging that whole ever deeper. If you are not willing to do the time (or face the consequences) then don’t do the crime.

You are still too selfish and don’t think you should have to go with out, or understand why you cannot just do what ever you want and never have to deal with the consequences.

Dragon Tarot Card of the Day for April 25 2008

TEMPERANCE. This card is about reflection on one’s life and maturation. What I see in this card today is: That you have reached a point in your life when you can just look back at your past and just accept what has happened with out the would of, could of, should of. These does not mean you don’t have regrets but that you are not reliving your past with all the different ways it could have been if you had done this or if this was different. You can accept that this is what happened and there is no going back to change that. You can let it all go and move on with your life. You are not giving the would of, could of, should of have any control of your life, you are living for today and tomorrow not yesterday.

This is a wonderful place to be. It means that you have reached a level or maturity that not everyone reaches. It takes a great burden off of yourself to not have to keep trying to fix the past and re-live it, but to move on and be comfortable with yourself and your past knowing you cannot change it now. Your past no longer controls you; your actions today are what are important.

Dragon Tarot Card of the Day for April 24 2008

THE HERMIT Reversed. This card is about isolation and alienation. What I see in the card today is: You are feeling left out and alone as if everyone around you does not include you. It is not that you are not around people but that you just don’t seem to be part of any group. You are not finding it easy to become a part of a group no matter how hard you try to get their attention. They just don’t seem to be interested in including you, let alone getting to know you. This is very difficult to live with.

Being able to identify yourself with in a group is very important, and very hard to do if you are just not accepted. Eventually you just stop trying and live in loneliness and depression because there is no one out there to talk with or hang out. I can tell you that you are not alone in this; it just feels that way. You will be able to connect with people, just not the ones you are trying become friends with right now. You are trying to hard and that is not helping. Stop trying to find friends, start looking at activities you like and find out where you can do that.

Join formal groups or activities not to make friends but to do what you enjoy. Chances are once you stop trying to make friends and just relax and do what you like you will find others with the same interested and friendship will grow from that. Go out and do things, and if you don’t find what you need in one group or activities, look for other places and groups to do that activity. Also you need to understand that you don’t need to be friends with the most popular people, or have tons of people to call friend, you just need one or two people who are real friends.

Dragon Tarot Card of the Day for April 23 2008

QUEEN OF SWORDS. This card is about a determined woman with a barrier between her and others. What I see in the card today is: You are so focused on the results or completion of a goal that you are missing out on everything else that is going on around you. You have lost touch with friends and family because you are so focused. You are sacrificing the very thing you are working so hard for. The goal has become more important then the trip to get there. You need to be dedicated and work hard but at the same time you need to enjoy your friends and family. What is the point of working so hard if you loose the very thing you are trying to help, your friends and family. A pay check is only money, it can be very lonely if that is all you have. What value does reaching a goal or getting a job title have if you sacrificed everything to get it? You need to value your friends and family and put time and energy into them as well, have a more balanced life.

Dragon Tarot Card of the Day for April 22 2008

THE WORLD Reversed. This card is about fears and carrying the world on your shoulders. What I see in the card today is: You have been taking on the responsibility of someone else’s actions. You are constantly making things right as if it was your job to take the consequences for them. You are afraid of what will happen if they have to take on responsibility and the consequences of his/her actions.

To be blunt you are not doing anyone any good by doing this, you are actually making this much worse by not letting them take responsibility and have to live with the consequences. This person will never learn nor change and you just end up having to deal with things that are just not your problem. Eventually he/she is going to do something you cannot fix or you will not be there to fix it for them. This person has no incentive to change or grow; you are taking those opportunities away from them by taking away his/her responsibility. This person can just keep doing what they want, when they want with out having to deal with the mess they leave behind. This has to stop, or it is just going to get worse. You need to stop now and let them get hurt now so he or she can learn.

Dragon Tarot Card of the Day for April 21 2008

THE EMPEROR Reversed. This card is about being unable to receive from others and being bossy. What I see in the card today is: You have become so used to doing things on your own that don’t know how to let anyone else do something. You cannot let go of the control. You don’t expect others to help; you expect to have to carry all burdens yourself.

You have trust issues; problems letting people close to you and you resent that you always to do things yourself. You don’t see that you are the person causing this. Every thing has to be your way; you have to be in control because you don’t trust others to do their part. You are very hard to be around. People don’t help because you don’t want it, or you make their lives hell the whole time and then just do it yourself anyway. You don’t ask for help, you try to do everything yourself.

You believe the only way to get things done right is if you do it all. Then you start sticking your nose into what other people are doing because you just know they are doing wrong you’re your way is better then what they are doing. You are always telling people what to do and when to do it, and not in a nice way. Your not trying to help people, you are trying to take over. You are not a fun person to be around. Let it go.

If someone asks you for help or advice, sure then you can help. If someone is buried under paper work, sure offer to help, but don’t try to take over the job or change how they do things. If you rushing to get everything done and someone offers to make coffee or help organize things or even just to set the table let them do it. It is a small thing and it will make them feel helpful, and take some stress off of you. So everything is not done to your standards, it is done and on time. People are not going to care that you did not personally do every little thing yourself, just that it got done, and to their standards. This is for both work and socially.

If you have guests over for dinner, do they really care if you set the table or if someone else did? Do they care if you personally arraigned the flowers or let your kids do it? Right now you are missing out on a lot of the big things in life because you are worrying about being perfect at the little things. What is better telling your kids to get out and leave you alone because your getting ready for the party, or to ask them to help and be part of it, show pried in what they have done be it set the table, fold the napkins, do the flower arraignment, or what ever? How can they feel pride and accomplishment if you are constantly denying them the opportunity, or nothing is ever good enough in your eyes? Just think about what your missing out and what else those around you are missing out on.

Dragon Tarot Card of the Day for April 20 2008

THE HIGH PRIESTESS Reversed. This card is about being superstitious and or deluded. What I see in the card today is: You have been disconnected from yourself and your belief system. You have lost touch with nature and empathy, the ability to connect with others. It is like you are a little boat with its moorings severed and you are just bobbing along the sea, lost with no idea of where you are, where you want to be or what is going on.

I don’t know if you have pulled back and have severed your contact or connections deliberately or not. What I can tell is that fear and hurt are keeping you disconnected. I don’t know if your are doing this more because as long as you are disconnected you don’t have to deal with the pain and lose, or if it is more that you are protecting yourself from being hurt in the future. I believe that it is a combination of both. If you can hide the pain away then you don’t need to deal with it, and if you never let anyone close they cannot hurt you.

The longer you keep this shell or wall up the harder it is going to be for you to take it down. It will become a way of life, not a temporary thing to let yourself adjust. You need to decide if you want to stay cut off and disconnected or be a part of something again?
