Today I decided to pick a card from the Osho Zen Tarot deck and the card I picked is Projections.  As I tune into this card the message I’m getting for someone reading this is…..you will be interacting with someone today that will get your blood boiling….you will think they are pushing your buttons and are trying to get under your skin….but that is really not the case.

Often a person comes across a certain way when they really do not mean to….their intentions are to sound genuine and sincere….but the delivery seems brash and/or offensive.  What really can be happening is you are projecting your thoughts onto that person…..you may be judging them for being a certain way, acting a certain way, having an attitude…..but you may be the one with the attitude and its being mirrored right back to you.

You may be expecting their interactions with you to be brash, accusatory, judgmental, but are you really judging them….and yourself?  Are you jumping to the conclusion that people are going to react to you in this way today….questioning you….challenging you….doubting you?  Thats not their stuff….its yours.  Take a step back and recognize that this person or people are not really throwing daggers at you…..look deeper and beyond that first reaction of yours…..and see that its all really in your head….there is no need to waste your energy spinning over this….questioning how they are responding to you.

This is also a message to be tactful in your interactions with people…..if you find yourself feeling  little short-tempered….it will be wise to put a smile on your face.  There is no need to unnecessarily bring others down if you are in a mood….its your stuff not theirs….and if you make an effort to grin and bare it to spare the people around you a little….it will lighten up your mood and clear any tension you are holding today.

If you find yourself getting a little moody today….keep all the above in mind today as you interact with others….it will prepare you from going down a road you don’t need to go down….and will conserve your energy so you can spend it on better, healthier things….like fun….joy….and overall happiness.

I will be back tomorrow with another card reading of the day….enjoy your Friday!!!
