Weekly Tarot With Tif: The Heart As A Warrior’s Compass

9/8/2013-9/14/2013

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.”
-Confucius

“He who loves, flies, runs, and rejoices; he is free and nothing holds him back.”
-Henri Matisse

In one cup you toast your success. It is not a premature toast. You are victorious in heart and will accept no less, signified by the unnecessary wine cast aside: Nothing holds you back. You are the Queen of Cups:

The future is filled with fog and uncertain, aside from the airships surrounding her. Depending on the circumstances, this may be a battle and she the captain of her ship. Perhaps she is leading this battle, and who knows how many allies will go down around her, or if she will go down; this may be her alone out there, or so it seems. Regardless, in her eyes you can tell there will be victory as she goes into this with all her heart. If she falls, she will rise again. Nothing holds her back.

Nothing should hold you back, particularly when your heart and soul are so fully invested. You know what’s right for you, and what’s wrong for you.

The Queen of Cups is dressed for battle and seems very grounded and balanced, but she truly rules emotion and how our emotions serve us. Not how we serve our emotions.

Now that she understands the balance of being accountable to herself she can teach others to do the same. The Queen of Cups is fiercely compassionate and understands intuition and emotion, but she will cast aside what harms and no longer serves her in a heartbeat. Perhaps having done battle yourself you are especially called this week to hug someone close to you who is going through their own mist-filled battles, with your airship next to theirs as moral support; perhaps this week you are to remind yourself that the Queen of Cups resides in you.

If this card strongly reminds of you someone in your life, trust that feeling and see how your perception of them or their lessons can assist you in your growth this week.

Remember, trust the heart; the heart does know best. It is your warrior’s compass. Let it lead you forward.
