Grey’s Anatomy Tarot Reflections

(Fenestra Tarot Deck – by Chatriya – Oct 31, 2006)

One of my daily routines is to turn on netflix and watch Grey’s Anatomy while sipping my coffee. Today I was watching Season 7, Episode 2 and the scene was where a flag football team came into the ER with wounds after being struck by lightning. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to write a short article about it.

Each of the boys from the football team had a huge crush on the only girl on the team. Lucky her right?

After being struck by lightning each boy felt compelled to tell her about their love for her and asked her to marry them.

So here’s this poor girl, sitting in a hospital bed crying her eyes out because the one guy that she actually liked in return was injured so much that he needed surgery, and she was unable to tell him she cared for him. So here she is, blubbering, and there are two boys in the room apologizing for making her cry. They were asking her what they did, and how they could make her feel better.

Holy emotions people !! No wonder why I love this show. It’s full of crazy drama, and I am a woman. 🙂

Anyhow, Lexi Grey, one of the surgical residents spoke up and said, “The poor girl was struck by lightning today! She’s crying because everything changed now. She was just part of the team and everyone was friends, now all the sudden, lightning strikes and her whole world changed as she knew it.” (Well not the exact words, but similar)

What a perfect scene to go along with the spread above. We have the six of cups, representing the team mates as friends. Everything seemed perfect, and everyone was having a good time playing football together. The girl on the team was just one of the “guys.” Then suddenly lightning strikes and everything changes; the tower card. Because of the tower, this girl is now crying in a bed, wishing for everything to go back the way it was before.

In conclusion, Tarot can be read quite easily if one can link time and events to the cards while studying them. Now each time I do a reading, and I see these cards, my memory will be jogged, and I will be able to find meaning in the cards more quickly than if I hadn’t associated these cards with the Grey’s Anatomy scene above. 🙂

19 May 1536 – A Prophecy Comes True


editpalmer4

(commissioned deck, by Philip Harris)

Today, 19 May 1536, an innocent Queen was put to death by a French swordsman, under the order of King Henry VIII. It was said through a prophecy that this would happen, and Anne lived many days in worry after she lost the love of her husband. She was said to have had sex with multiple men, including her own brother; George Boleyn. These accusations were false and there has been no proof of such, even now. Many are moved by this young woman’s short life, and mourn for her on this very day. A sadness has been coming upon my heart all month. I just wanted to pay tribute to this strong, plain, and beautiful woman whose inspiration has touched the lives of many, even after her time. Here we are, five hundred years later, and our spirits still feel her presence. She was intelligent, strong, and way beyond her time in many ways. Let us not forget her on this day, and remember her greatest love; her daughter, Queen Elizabeth I, who became a successful Queen for England and ruled for many years. She not only was the daughter of Anne, and Queen of England, but she was a female who ruled with the heart of a lion. Rest in peace Anne B. You were undeserving of your fate. In my Tarot deck, you represent the Queen of cups. My emotions run like water at the sound of your name. xo Bridgett

 

 

 

8 of swords – Free Me !!


 

8 of Swords scan Touchstone Tarot

Sometimes one can be in the perfect mood, and once they leave the house, someone else who is in a bad mood rubs off on them, and steals their joy! There is nothing more annoying to me. We all know the saying, “Misery loves company.” How true.

The other day I went to the grocery store, and the kids were all excited to pick out snacks for their cupboard. We were being silly and dancing in the isles, having a good time. Nothing could steal my joy, absolutely nothing. Or so I thought! After all, I was in the cookie isle.

Upon reaching the cash register, I began unloading my cart and within a few seconds my joy dissipated rather quickly. The cashier was in a funky mood, and decided to take it out on me, the customer.

Back when I was younger I would have told her to stick it where the sun don’t shine and walked out. But, now that I am older, and a responsible mother, I felt like the eight of swords. I was unsure of what to do, and even waiting for the rescue of a manager near by. Which didn’t happen, by the way. I was feeling persecuted, and wasn’t sure which way I should handle the situation.

When you sense or feel a negative mood emanating from someone, try this useful technique to try and understand what it is that’s going on with them. –

First, get yourself out of your own way! Discard the thoughts that you are feeling. Relax, close your eyes, and don’t forget to breath, or you will fall over.

Try to imagine that you are stepping into their shoes, and becoming that person. Feel what they’re feeling. The chances are that you will probably have a better understanding of what is going on, and might even be able to help.

After doing the above technique, I regained my joy, and a smile was back on my face. Apparently I have a beautiful smile because the cashier was no long in a fowl mood. My energies rubbed off on her. See, sometimes a smile really can make a difference.

Back to the 8 of swords. Release yourself from the bondage of misery around you. You have a choice of swords waiting to cut you free. Grab one and cut, what are you waiting for? Whomever tied you up didn’t do such a great job. Take off that blind fold, and see through your feelings. There is a happy ending if you allow yourself one.

Affirmation:

“I am able to share, and trust my true feelings.”
