Daily Tarot Reflection – 1 Feb – The Devil Reversed

(Image from Bird Queen Designs Tarot Deck)

You have the power to break every chain. You can’t do it alone without something greater than you—but that which is greater than you can only help you if you’re willing to ask for help and willing to receive the help being offered. To be clear—there are negative and opposing energies outside of you. But at the same time, the worst Devil, the greatest demon, is the one who lives within you. You can’t get rid of shadow entirely—and it would be neither safe nor healthy to do so. At the same time, a Lunar Eclipse is a release of unproductive shadow, a release of stagnant negative energy. Productive shadow energy dances, moves—that’s the one to keep and engage with. What is the Devil within that wants to be released this week? What are the broken records, the narratives that have been on repeat all throughout your life that you can leave at the altar of unproductive and walk away from? Did you know you are your own person? No one else in the world is exactly like you. You are a combination of genetics, the epigenetic expression of your environment, physical and energetic consumption, and all of your life’s experiences. No one else is composed of the ingredients of humanity in exactly the same recipe. You are a unique and beautiful creation. When you understand this, your demons become your friends. They guide you. They make sure you don’t exceed your limitations. They actually keep you safe. They can be your greatest protection. Isn’t it amazing to live in a world such as this—where your demons and angels can be the same people, the same energies, the same entities? Like Rumi writes, “each visitor is a guide from beyond”. Today, welcome each visitor. Everyone’s got some bullshit to let go of and ignore—perhaps yourself more than anyone else. Take what’s meaningful and let go of the rest. THIS is what freedom looks like. THIS is what salvation looks like! Ache 🙏🏼
