I wanted to pull some collective Dharma energy cards with the energy of all these retrogrades, including Saturn Retrograde, the karmic planet. Right now we don’t even realize that karmic debts are being paid, karmic healing is taking place and Dharmas are being revealed. The cards you choose are either a message of what you need to transmute right now in order to moved forward or what you need to embrace in order to rise in your Soul’s Divine Purpose.
Your dharma means your purpose in life. Your dharma is your true calling – what you were put here to do. I want you to really let your intuition guide you in this. If you’re drawn to multiple cards that’s ok. On the other side of each image is a word and the teachings of Buddha associated to this word. Pick a card or cards that you’re drawn to. I will give the messages tomorrow.
Take a moment and close your eyes. Breathe in deeply and ask Spirit to guide you to the cards for you. Open your eyes and follow your intuition as you choose your cards. You may be guided to multiple cards. Every feeling is relevant.
Leave your chosen cards in the comments below. Feel free to share this post and tag a friend who may need some guidance as well.
If you feel like the messages I give resonate deeply with you and you if led to pay it forward, I’m going to leave my PayPal link, Venmo and cashapp tag below. If you would like to donate any amount, even $1, this helps me to be able to continue to do this for you all. Love donations accepted too. I also do private personal readings, (currently booking New Moon readings and cosmic influence readings surrounding the energy of these retrogrades) if you’re interested in pricing and booking information just message the page.❤️
May many blessings and healing flow to you. 🙏🏻
Card 1 Anger
You want to be superior. You think you are great. This is pride, and everyone feels it. Everyone is vying for the top position and everyone wants to come first. Anger results. Conflict arises, and there is no escape. Ego doesn’t allow you to give in. You feel you’ve been wounded; you feel you’ve been hurt. Your ego is very sensitive.
Buddha suggests this ego is false. He sees things differently than those of us who have been influenced by Freud. Buddha suggests that the ego is merely a clinging of the mind. Abandon your anger; abandon your pride, he says. Let go of the clinging. Watch and these things will loosen their hold. They have no reality. They are simply ideas.
The mind is very complex. It runs without any help from you. Unaware, you are like the charioteer who simply holds the reins. Wen you turn your awareness to what is happening, you are able to disengage the parts. You become the master.
Card 2 The Master
Remain the way you are and you are a slave to your mind. Become aware and you are the master. The journey from one to the other is a journey that changes everything. Once fully awakened to the nature of your mind and who you really are, you will be free— free of desires, free of longing, free of all the pushing and pulling that makes you who you have been for so long.
Why is it so difficult to embark on the path to awaken? Because you don’t know where you’re going. There are no maps for this journey. You’ll be on your own; and no one will be there to guide you. You will search for something you have never seen before, and you have no idea what you will find. No one knows what’s inside of you, so it will be up to you to take each step.
It take tremendous courage to move towards freedom. It’s take tremendous daring to go where there’s no one to follow. It takes tremendous eagerness to stop postponing and to leap into the unknown. But, says Buddha, you will find joy.
Card 3 The Way
Following the Eightfold Way is different than believing it will save you. You must listen with an open heart to what Buddha says. He speaks of rightness— right effort, right speech, right mindfulness— and he means that you must walk as if on a tightrope. Don’t lean to the left; don’t lean to the right. Don’t judge and don’t try to understand. Move like a river and go wherever the current takes you.
The Four Noble Truths are not Laws to follow, they simply point to a reality. Buddha says that life is full of suffering. He says there is a cause for this suffering and it lies with the desired mind that never leaves you alone. He says that there is a state where this suffering completely disappears. And he says there is a way to find this state.
The meditation that Buddha proposes you to use is simple— just learn to be watchful. This is the extent of Buddha’s teaching. It is so easy. So quickly— get ready to begin.
Card 4 Death
The greatest mystery in life is death. Life is infinite and science can explore it. It has a beginning and an end, and specifics that can be studied. Objectivity is an asset when life is examined; it does well under a microscope.
Love is far more mysterious. It bridges many worlds. It is more subjective and changes with each person. Art explores the world of love. Artist participate in the experience and through poetry, music, and painting, they touch on things that can’t always be put into logical terms.
Death is the domain of religion. It is one reason why the search to know oneself begins. Death is a door to all that cannot be known in life, and if you can be aware of what happens as you die, you will have stumbled onto truths we search for in meditation.
Meditation is a step towards death. In meditation you will come to know you are not separate from the rest of existence. Those who die to the past and the future, find themselves in the present moment and the eternity of now. They are truly alive and death is no longer something to fear.
Card 5 Practice
Forgetfulness is easy. It is associated with comfortable feelings and thoughts. You feel more secure when you are unaware. As you try to become more alert, you will begin to disparage at the determinations and the force of your mind.
Buddha understands this to be the case. He doesn’t make light of it, or pretend this problem doesn’t exist. Nagarjuna, one of the most influential teachers of Buddhism has said, “Without the discipline of watching the mind, what use are any other disciplines?”
Watch your mind. As your awareness grows stronger, your actions will indicate that you have changed. Compassion and understanding will grow. You’ll be less troubled by the comments of others. Your decisions will come from your heart and you’ll be unlikely to act in irrational, unconscious ways. Science has recently observed that meditators’ brains are free from the habitual patterns that govern the rest of us .
Card 6 Totality
Do not hesitate. Do not think about what to do. Live life from your heart and don’t be split. If you try to figure things out with your mind, you will become fragmented, for your mind can’t let things be simple. Live from your heart and move into life. Your heart will know what to do.
Trust and be total. Don’t be reckless, but keep moving forward. If you stop to consider, you will wallow in uncertainty and disbelief. Doubt will slow you down. You must go beyond the old patterns of your mind. Buddha suggests that you move with the full intensity of your being. Don’t let thinking instruct your progress.
Pay attention to your heart. That’s where trust arises. That’s where your vibrancy lives. Sense your heart. It will help center you. It will move you away from the chaotic nature of your mind and land you in a place that appreciates beauty and truth. Feel into your heart and you will become more integrated. Follow your heart and you will find the truth.
Card 7 The Awakened One
The Awakened One
The light of the Awakened One is always shining. You will need guided by the strength of this light. The Awakened One is aware during the day. The Awakened One is aware at night. While the body sleeps, awareness continues to glow. Time and distance are of no consequence.
The shining of of the sun is strong and direct. Its light seeks out fear and unseats ignorance. Its light shines on every moment and unsettles those who sleep.
The light of the moon is subtle. It glows with a radiance that seeps into dreams. It’s shines into the unconscious and is soft and meditative.
The light of the Awakened One is always shining.
Card 8 Emptiness
Don’t be worried, Buddha says. You will find your way. You will reach the great peaks of experience as you become more aware. Those who jump into the river will reach the other shore. Those who embark on the journey to learn who they are, will discover the truth of their existence.
Buddha says again and again that you should not believe, so it is difficult to get up from where you are now. The mountain peaks are far away. The journey is long, and it is not easy. You will find yourself alone, and at times you will be afraid. How can you travel if you don’t believe?
Trust—- says Buddha. You must meditate and be watchful. You will let go astray if your intentions are true. Trust. Trust arises in your heart. Your heart will lead you when your mind is confused; and your heart will bring you back when you go astray.
