This is a thoughtful meditation for the Major Arcana and highly suitable for a spiritual uplift, a journal or a taking-time-to-smell-the-roses moment. Separate the Major Arcana from the rest of your deck. Shuffle the Major's and pull or layout a small reading that you enjoy and meditate on the insight offered. The outcome can be quite surprising indeed.
Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
The High Priestess:
When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"
Believe in love at first sight.
When you say, "I love you", mean it.
When you say, "I'm sorry", look the person in the eye.
Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
Never laugh at anyone else's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
Spend some time alone. Try and remember your true face.
The Wheel of Fortune:
Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling. When someone gives you a compliment say, "Thank you for noticing."
The Hanged Man:
Don't judge people by their relatives.
Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
Talk slowly but think quickly.
Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.
When you lose, don't lose the lesson. A friend is the person who comes in when the whole world is gone.
Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.
Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship. Blame is the singular most destructive force in a relationship.
When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
Smile when you answer the phone. The caller will hear it resonate in your voice.
Dance like no one is watching, love like you've never been hurt and work like you don't need the money.
