Daily Tarot Reading March 18: The Emperor, Three of Staffs, Six of Cups — Fixing Broken Relationships With Fathers

This is a general reading. Please contact me to schedule a personalized reading specifically targeted to address your situation in-depth.

I drew three cards for you today. They are the Emperor, the Three of Staffs, and the Six of Cups. The Emperor is a major arcana card that speaks about authority, regulation, and order. It often symbolizes a father figure. In this reading, it is combined with the Three of Staffs and the Six of Cups. The Six of Cups is a card that speaks about goodwill and child-like innocence. As it is combined with the Emperor, today’s general reading is about relationships and taking a new direction in your relationship with the father figure in your life.

If you have animosity in your heart towards your father, now is the time to let it go. Your relationship may be fractured and you may feel it is beyond repair. This may have become an open wound in your heart that you are pretending isn’t there. The Three of Wands asks you to be the bigger person and set an example. You may not feel that you are being watched or people are looking up to you, but they are. The way you are handling this relationship with your father is setting a precedent for future generations.

You are being encouraged to be the bigger person and do your part in mending this relationship. It doesn’t mean you will have the relationship that you have always dreamed of with your father, but by letting the past stay in the past, and by forgiving your dad for what he did wrong, you are releasing yourself from the chains that bind you.

We are all here on this journey and some of us respond to trauma and tragedy in ways that not only hurt ourselves but hurt others. Your father may have lashed out at you in his anger and you internalized this and made it part of your identity. It is not your fault and your father’s treatment of you is not a reflection of who you are. It is not a reflection of who he is. It was his poor response to situations, stress, and trauma that he did not have the skills to deal with.

By releasing your father from the way he has wronged you, you are ultimately releasing yourself from the turmoil that was instilled in you. It is difficult and this doesn’t mean you will have full restoration with your father — but you will have restoration with yourself. You will reclaim the part of your life that was damaged and find new wholeness through forgiveness.

When you find yourself thinking negatively about your father in your mind and heart, cover it with love and forgiveness. When memories or mental images pop up in your mind, say to yourself, “I forgive you dad. You didn’t know what you were doing.” Don’t think too deeply about his issues. Just offer the forgiveness and let it go.

This healing work isn’t for him, it’s for you. You are being asked to heal the broken relationship — not so that you and your father become ‘best friends’ but so you will be the best that you can be.

Love covers a multitude of sins and it is possible that the more you forgive, the softer your father’s heart will become. However, everyone has their own free will. We do not forgive others for what we hope they can give us in return.

We forgive others to free ourselves from the debt we believe they owe us. Forgiveness is an act of mercy not just for the recipient, but for ourselves as well.

God bless you.
