Tarot Spell for Courage in Facing a Difficult Situation

This article was written by Llewellyn
posted under Tarot

The potential circumstances that require us to summon up courage are innumerable. Some are very frightening situations, and some are matters of great seriousness and importance. Others are just small things that give us trouble or that we want to put off for personal reasons. Whether the thing you fear is large or small, this spell will help.

This simple spell calls on the powers that will help you face any problem. The Star provides inner guidance, Strength gives courage and power, and the Chariot puts you in control of the situation.

If you wish to use accessories for this spell, try red candles, flowers, crystals and gemstones, and cloth to lay the cards upon. Red bestows the forceful energy needed to ride out a difficult period. You could also use brown, which denotes strength rooted in the Earth, or white, which stands for pure psychic energy and purity of intentions.

To perform this spell, improvise a ritual of your own or just proceed by laying out the cards and doing the meditation, visualization, and affirmation.

Meditation and Visualization 

When ready, lay down the Star. Visualize yourself standing in a field of stars. As you observe the stars, you notice their light becoming brighter and brighter. Beams of starlight extend to you, and you feel their warmth couragespellspreadpenetrating you, suffusing you with power. You become aware that you, too, are a glowing star, and you become intoxicated with the joy of your own light and power.

Next, set Strength in place. Continue to feel the vital energy that you have summoned, and know that you have the power to overcome all fears and obstacles. Flex your muscles, and if your work space permits, engage in motions such as exercises, martial arts katas, or dance movements that make you aware of your body and being, and of the strength and energy that flow through you.

Finally, set the Chariot in place. Contemplate the figure in the picture; study his calm sense of control. Now, study the charioteer’s armor. Using the psychic energy that you have summoned, you will craft your own protective armor: hold your hands in front of you, and feel the power surging through them. Now, starting with your head, make motions with your hands, passing them over your body parts, using their power to craft an invisible armored covering.

After you have finished meditating on the cards and visualizations, carefully, with as much feeling as you can, recite the affirmation.

 Affirmation

“By force of will and magic spell
I call on power from within and without!
Power shines like a star within me.
Power flows through me,
and power grows ’round me.
I conjure power to make me strong.
With magic power I craft my armor.
My magic protects me totally
and no obstacle can stand before me.
In the warmth and light of my inner strength
fears and problems melt like snow.
So it is,and so shall it be!”

You may consider the spell closed at this point, or you may close the spell as desired.
