Tarot 21 - 7 of Fire: "PERSISTENCE"

You can do it if you think you can ...and if you really, really want it
It is imperative to continue on even if you find yourself without support or encouragement.  You will eventually accomplish the task at hand.             

A young man, dressed in robes and burning incense in a cauldron leans forward into the smoke, protecting himself with a heavy tapestry curtain and a row of burning candles.  Outside behind him, the lights of a city experiencing a lightning storm twinkle, but he is focused on the incense and has not noticed the lightning strikes.

INTERPRETATION:  At the present time it may feel as though your struggles are all for naught.  You are within the cycle of the solitary and like all else, it will eventually change.  Look to your highest self for support.  From the smoke of the cleansing fire arises much intuitive protection from within.  Worry not, for continual expanding movement is possible now.        

In all the sevens in each of the suits you will find the theme of needing to recognise and acknowledge a basic truth that you have either ignored or simply not comprehended.  This then represents the something that is limiting you from proceeding on your course.

You may think that something you want or something you want to do has been thwarted recently and it is down to this inability to have recognised about the truth of the situation. It can be something you really believe you haven’t got that you need, but in actuality there is an alternative something you have not yet considered that can alternatively get to where you want to be.

·                     In 7 of earth “Circumstances” you will have to come to understand that you have been trying to work against time, either your ideas are ahead of their time or you will have to accept that you have missed the boat and will now have to try and launch your project in the future when the time comes around again

·                     In 7 of fire “Persistence” you may be worried that you do not have the passion needed to carry through your ideas or dreams, you will have to understand that you have enough passion, so it is more about believing in yourself and that you really can accomplish what you want, use this as your anthem:

·                     In 7 of water “Self-preservation” you may fear that loving means you will inevitably be hurt again so you have been holding yourself back from relationships.  When you realise that sharing yourself emotionally with others will always be a risk, then you will be ready to go out and try again to love

·                     In 7 of air “Reality Check” is about recognising that you honestly do know what’s best, in many instances this tarot represents “physician heal yourself”

INTERPRETATION:  Success is possible through honouring the inherent intuition within you.  Listen to your inner voice. 

You may feel your way is blocked but that is a false thought, let go of your preconceived notions of how you will gain what you want and focus all your energy only on the thing you want or want to be. 

You'll need to temper your intuition with making careful observations and learning as much as you can from the others involved.  You may feel that you are not entirely sure that you know how to proceed.  If this is the case, you will have to make your best guess.  No one will be able to tell you what you should do.

It is in your power to succeed, so carry on...even if you're not sure where you are going.
