Are we a culture that just does not like authority? Or has authority got it wrong so many times that we have an innate tendency to view them negatively? These were questions that came up for me as I was preparing for Day 11 of the 12 Days of Yule. It appears that many views (at least from the metaphysical perspective) consider any ruling authority or ruling concept as limiting, constrictive, rigid, and dogmatic. So, attempting to work with the content today has been a task.
Yesterday we explored our inner child and how to energize that archetype in our lives. Today, we will explore the Inner Adult, another area in transactional analysis that needs to be healed for many people. This is a trying concept because we tend to put the clothes of our parents on the Inner Parent. If you had a good relationship with your parents then you will probably evoke the Wise Old Man or the Crone. If you had a negative relationship with your parents then most likely the Synex or Dark Mother will be activated. However, our inner parent is something inside of us – and he or she is a positive force that helps us make constructive decisions about our future. At times the Inner Parent has to put some restrictions on the Inner Child (which often the Inner Child then acts like an Inner Spoiled Brat), but they are a pair and we have to give life to both of them.
Get out your deck. Shuffle your cards thoroughly and ask the following question, “How do I best activate my Inner Parent?” Fan the cards out and select one from the deck.
The card that I drew from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot is The Queen of Coins.
In my astrological system for Tarot, I equate the Queen of Coins with the sign of Taurus. She is stubborn, steadfast, able to do business with a single bound, and has the discipline to be able to stay focused. My inner child card The Chariot says to use the power of my will to push forward with all the activities I have before me, but the Queen of Coins requires me to do it in a stable and structured way. I really like the energy of these two cards together, and am rather pleased and excited that I drew them.
