Ralph Waldo Emerson told us that "life is a journey, not a destination."
But what is the purpose of a journey? Sometimes we journey to discover and to learn. Sometimes we journey to connect with people; sometimes we journey to pursue our passions. Sometimes we journey simply for fun.
A journey can have specific goals, but achieving those goals is not the whole of the journey.
When we are able to view life as a journey we are able to enjoy more, learn more and be more passionate about life. We worry less about things that don't really matter, and pay more attention to the things that do. We worry less about the plan, and more about experiencing each detail along the way.
Your Journey Tarot Spread
Here is a four-card spread about your personal life journey. You can use a tarot deck, or any card oracle.
Lay the cards out from left to right.
Card One: Where I am now.
Card Two: What I have learned so far.
Card Three: Where I am going.
Card Four: What I need to know about my journey.
What's Up at the Psychic Café?
As you probably know, Christiana's Psychic Café is a weekly webcast on the Para Encounters Network. Each Sunday at 9 pm EDT I interview guests, play music videos, teach tarot, perform readings and chat about things of interest to the metaphysical community. Since the show began in December my guests have included a comedian, a tarot artist, a tantric healer, musicians, a hoop dancer, Pagan leaders, diviners, authors and more.
This past week our show fell on March 31, which was Easter Sunday and the day before April Fool's Day. We had a wonderful time celebrating healing, dance, music and the tarot Fool. Our guests included Michelle and Ron of the Gong Temple, who told us a bit about using gongs to add in meditation and relaxation.
We enjoyed a video about Eric the TranscenDancer.
Anita Perez joined me for a discussion about the Fool and special one-card tarot readings.
This coming week, April 7, our guest will be outspoken Pagan and professional psychic Helene Martz. People enjoyed her so much when she was a panel guest for our St. Patrick's Day show I thought it would be great to have her back on the show!
We will also have an interview with Eric the TranscenDancer, and enjoy a Kirtan video from Michelle Angel.
Also on the Tarot Topics Community Blog Robin Renee posted about the Philadelphia Zombie Run. Read Transformation by Zombies.
On Tarot Trends, Christiana's Personal Blog, Christiana contemplated the word "should." Read Should is a Funny Word.
Also on her personal blog, Christiana reacted to some recent news stories with a post entitled Science and Faith.
Your One-Card Weekly Reading
You One-Card reading this week is the King of Pentacles.
The King of Pentacles can refer to a particular person in your life. Typically the King of Pentacles is an adult man who is very stable and responsible. He may be good in business and he may be wealthy.
