YELLOW JASPER: Control Issues: Utilize your God-given strength and power, instead of fearing that others may try to control you. This card can be a sign that you’re experiencing a power struggle, with someone, or feeling not in control of your life. Power struggles can be like a tug-of-war, with both sides pulling on the energy in an attempt to “win”. This can be frustrating and draining, so this card is reminding you to find a healthier path.
Remember that you were made in God’s image and likeness, and therefore you are naturally filled with the strength of God. Many a tug-of-war is ended when one person drops the rope — which metaphorically means that you stop seeing the other person as powerful or controlling.
Don’t give away your power to others, and surrender any control issues to God, who can peacefully heal and balance this situation. Focus on your own energy and actions, instead of fearfully monitoring others.
About Yellow Jasper: This variety of chalcedony, an opaque quartz stone, is called jasper, meaning speckled because of its spotty appearance. It comes in a range of colors, including yellow jasper’s deep golden shade. Yellow jasper is related to the solar plexus chakra, the energy center located in the stomach area, and it lends strength, courage, confidence and protection.
