Summer is great time to try new things and expore new horizons. To me Magick is visualization and affirmation, it is prayer in an art form. Why not try some tarot spells as you soak up the sunshine? Today I share with you some tarot Magick for happiness that I read recently from the ATA Quarterly Journal. I found them simple and effective.
Here’s a good summertime spell for inducing happiness. One of the ways to work mood-lifting magick is based on the principle of expelling and absorbing. You simply let go of and neutralize your negative emotions, and then absorb the energies of the emotion you wish to feel. So for a tarot spell to bring happiness, you would simply choose a card through which you will release your negative emotions. You can pick a card that represent these feelings, or a balancing card such as Temperance. Explore your sadness or anxiety, and then touch the card and visualize the negativity flowing away from you, coming out of your fingertips and going into the card. Now blow hard across the surface of the card, or shake it in the air, thinking, “neutralize!” You can visualize the colour gray if you like, to help neutralize and dispel the negative, unwanted energies. Now look through your deck and choose a card that represents the emotion you want to feel. The Sun, The Magician or The high Priestess are effective cards to consider. Feel the energies symbolized in the card, then hold in high above your head upside down, pouring these energies into yourself and feeling your joy expand.
Another way to work mood-lifting magick is with a shielding charm. For a shielding charm, you simply build a shield around yourself comprised of the energy you wish to be surrounded with. The shield will help keep you immersed in this energy while protecting against the intrusion of unwanted emotions. For a tarot shielding charm to increase happiness, choose a card that represents positive strength and positive emotions, such as The Sun, Strength, the Ace of Cups. Hold the card face out and turn around in a circle, visualizing an orb-shaped shield of this energy forming around you, much like a witch might cast a protective magick circle.
Although summer is not endless, the potential for visualization and affirmation is. Tarot is to me a key for opening the door into unlimited possiblity.
