The seeds one has been planting with love and energy are creating a strong foundation in ones life, reflecting a polished mirror of inner to outer manifestation. The loving investment of energy into work, relationships, creative visions, and interests have been cultivated and can now be expanded upon. The path is clear and there is unwavering conviction that the way is being paved in a divine harmony. The daily work must continue for the blossoms to fully bloom. The love underlying the movement is purely spirit that is taking on its own life. Three of Wands is a reflection to continue the way of the heart, to trust in fullness of what is present and what is to come. Moving in this way allows pure vision to manifest in magickal ways – even more beautiful than the original vision. High momentum is whirling with grounded energy to stabilize this force. All loving and true energy investment is not wasted. A solid foundation is being created that is not one of solely material foundations. This foundation is built from spirit combining with earth energy – to bring into being what ignites the soul, a bridge of spirit and matter.
. . .
As each unique being honors and acts upon the natural flowing guidance, flowering within expands us to a higher dimension as the old world collapses. We are creators and naturally each have visions and dreams to bring into being, we become weak when we hide away from our natural movement. As energetic momentum in physical action has been lovingly invested in our aspirations, we give shape to new worlds that only we individually can intimately know. As we gain strength in our genuine power and intuitive connectedness we honor each step of our creations. In this way we are not swayed by underdeveloped opinions or misguided energy. Listen to what vision arises within and allow this insight from your own internal navigation to lead the way. Move from your unshakeable depth and draw resources from this infinite well. Continue to embody strength and gentleness if unkind energies arise as doubt. When we have a clear connection inside we will know the way to move, even if that means into the unknown. Always follow the deeper movement of understanding.
. . .
Energies of doubt, fear, or hesitation about what wishes to be pursued are allowed to be present. Everything is a choice, allowed or not. To choose to be inside the essence of oneself will allow these other energies to fall away. Sometimes this requires time and in other instances energies can be fluidly dropped. As your attention is open to seeing what is honest within, these heavier energies will be exposed and released within the cosmic rhythms. The energy in Three of Wands is to trust your way whether fear is present or not and proceed with confidence and daily action. As we give attention to the vibration of being, allow the potency of the inner space to obliterate the small insignificant specks of smallness which limit you. A natural checking in becomes subtly refined and unraveling our highest potentiality. Moving in honest direction of your spirit.
. . .
Many subtleties within are seen that were once overlooked. The depth that has and is being discovered is pouring out to infinite aspects of life. As inner fullness is pouring out into physical reality and creating magick where deserted lands once were.
As inner clarity of spirit is revealed, actions become natural, flowing like a river.
…::..Eight of Cups..::…
/Moving Forward / Drastic Change / Onward & Upward/
~Shattered white cups at the foot of a dark mountain. An unknown horizon beyond~
Eight of Cups is about a great change that is known or felt. Either something must shift, or one has already decided to take the leap. Internally, there is already the presence of a gut wrenching knowing that one must move toward a new direction in one or various aspects of life. As we travel the inner and outer realms of life we begin to take with us what is fulfilling and rich in our lives and we also pick up what hinders the organic and vibrant flow of life. As we continue to journey we learn, grow, observe, act, and move in ways which that at times in vigor our lives and also deplete our lives. This is how we learn to navigate more wisely, as we open our eyes to what resides in the deepest core of our being we honor what wishes to be valued, cherished, and nourished. As we become acutely attuned with this core depth of our being we begin to invite that which serves our highest good and detect much more efficiently that which does not. The Eight of Cups is a drastic change that makes space and movement toward that which is in higher alignment with our individual and collective path. Becoming raw, open, vulnerable, and honest, moving forward to that which nurtures, supports, and holds our sacred path with loving arms.
For something that needs to be changed it must be acknowledged sincerely. As this takes place, internal space becomes open and light for new movement to be made internally and externally. Eight of Cups can be painfully beautiful. As we see what no longer serves we make the choice of rising into new territory celebrating a new way of living. This is a time to reassess and evaluate what we hold dear and what we do not. What is it that we cling to which is weighing us down and what moves are we making to step forward? Eight of Cups looks dark, but as this darkness is acknowledged a breath of fresh air is inhaled and new perspectives arise. This leads to more magic, possibilities, and a great abandoning of poisons and toxins within our being. As we face these dark layers from denied territories within we expose the immense beauty that is birthing itself into existence. We are pregnant with new life, and a fresh way of being. Death and Birth are tied in as one. We see this as we dive deeply and uncover what was/is dormant…we awaken the sleeping beast.
One must ask, has what been seen been fully acknowledged? Or, is there still an aversion to this honesty? An automatic response will come within. Deep in our womb, we know. When we tune in, pay attention, the answers show themselves. Whether on the verge of raising a hand and acknowledging the hidden dragon, or, on the other side where one has already acknowledged what is….Now is the time to feel into this. Eight of Cups is drastic change. It’s coming, it is here, and the next trajectory is lighter and brighter once deep recognition takes place. It can be extremely scary to walk into unknown territory and extremely exciting. The next chapter of the unknown is a step in the right direction. It is the rainbow after the storm. One is being pulled into right alignment with their soul purpose. It is a time when profound realizations of ones unique direction and path are leading the way and what must be let go in order to create new space and new life. All stagnant, dormant, and all that is unchecked will arise now. Dive deeply, be honest, and watch the magic that arises from this rawness of spirit.
/ WE ARE WILD / WE ARE FREE /
..::.. Five of Wands ..::..
Scattered Energy. Conflict. Confusion. These wands seem to be on entirely different trajectories. Something is being called to the forefront to be looked at more intimately. What is it in this moment that feels out of alignment internally? Energetically there are thoughts of a situation that are in question. Which ways are best to move and what is the highest way to realign with ones unique, natural vibration? Lets bring any outer situation or experience back to internal experience. We begin here, in presence, as this is where all this wildness springs from. Wands are a fire energy of movement, passion, ideas, inspiration, and the creator suit. The Five of Wands seems to be floating out of sync with one another, no color to hint at an energy burning brightly…..somethings gotta shift!
As we begin with ourselves and our internal climate first, where do we go from here? What feels off and what doesn’t feel like it is flowing with other aspects of our life? Once that is seen, feel into it. Is it something new or is it something that has been felt for some time now? Whatever is arising now, it is time to use the fire of the wands to create in the way that feels most in resonance with ones path. This may take some time, sit with what is arising, and to truly feel into ones being. This is a wise time to not distract oneself with other things as that will only delay what wishes to be seen. There could be multiple and valid stories to each of your thoughts or feelings about what is happening. On a deeper level, what rings true for you? Whatever it is you do to gain clarity, do that. There is no road map to create space within your being. Meditation and body movement are incredible tools that can help uncover this natural silent space. However, we are all very unique and tap into our ever present space in different ways. As you are with yourself and inquire, allow yourself to navigate all perspectives and feelings which arise. Explore openly and honestly. At times the different perspectives can also cause even more confusion, especially if there are multiple solid perspectives that all feel as though they can be true. Sitting in the depths of our own being in silence can bring up the most clear answer, we know it when it shows itself. Patience and kindness towards oneself will allow any anxiety and fear to dissipate while looking sincerely within. Our connection to our intuition and our honesty with ourself is important for us to navigate. Allow the power of presence to be felt. Words do not always come with realizations of what to do, but an answer will be felt when given space to arise.
Five of Wands is ready to be redirected in action again. Wands are meant to create magic. When wands energy is not balanced and used to full capacity it can feel flighty and directionless. Wands are designed to create, inspire, and create expansive energy within our lives. They are bursting with creation when aligned with the heart. We are constantly carving out our path, each day within our being and the actions that spring forth from our internal self. It ain’t such a bad idea to reflect and contemplate the way in which things are moving. Is one deeply loving the direction of the course, or is it time to make adjustments? We have this incredible freedom to move in the direction of creating and exploring an incredible life. Now is the time to remove that which is not in alignment to move on to a clear trajectory instead of a scattered one. The more tuned into ourselves we are and the more we tap into our depths we will be more fluid with addressing what is out of alignment and what is not. Sometimes…..it takes awhile and that is okay. Eventually we get insight when we are willing to look, when we are honest, and the timing is right. Five of Wands reminds us to dive in, tune in, and don’t get up until you know whats up! Delay will only prolong what is wishing to be seen.
Five of Cups is striking. Immediately gives a feeling of sadness and despair. The color of the horse is white, which symbolizes a purity and innocence energy present. The head hangs low in the darkness, absorbed in energy that is pained, doubtful, and grim. Above the horses head is light space with five cups hovering above the creatures head. The cups are on a higher plane than the horse, above him, and he pays no attention to their presence. Instead the energy of the card is paying most of the attention with the darker aspects of his experience while completely missing there are always both energies of shadow and light present. If we are alive, we are never fully engrossed in only darkness, but with energy focusing solely in that direction it can seem that is…all encompassing. When looked at more closely, a tiny detail on the horse is seen is a slight smile, barely noticeable. An energy is felt that perhaps on some level, in a subtle way, this dark energy is enjoyed in some way and is what is adding fuel to this low vibration. While there are five cups floating above, perhaps the energy here is suggesting there is a choice of not wanting to see.
To see a free spirited and strong creature slumped over in darkness can suggest that something in the querents life is not aligning with their soul purpose, that which makes them feel alive. vibrant and in harmony with life. It is possible the querent will intuitively know what the card is pointing to as it is drawn. The initial feeling of what is seen is worth the investigation as it can be a trigger that is connected to something deeper and ignites a initial spark inside. If there is a time where perhaps we are not expressing the passions that are intertwined deeply with our heart we can begin to lose vibrancy. Our unique soul expressions are a necessary part of our health and happiness and many times are linked with the main source of our life force/prana. If one is prioritizing only practical matters before that which makes their soul move, this sadness or despair can creep in and replace creative vision and expression. Five of Cups invites balance to what is practical in nature, but to never forget what excites and nourishes oneself deeply. Although this present time can have a shade of powerlessness on various levels, we always have the power of attention. Where is one focusing attention? What is the quality of life that this attention focused is highlighting?
Five of Cups represents a loss or pain and on top of that shame and guilt that is felt. This is what keeps the energy in the darkness. The pain felt is not coming from the experience itself, but from the mental and emotional activity added on top of the turmoil already being experience. This stretches out the healing process for weeks, months, even years. Some beings may go through life with this extra layer of shame or guilt added on top of an experience that is long gone. Because this mental activity is held on to it makes the healing much more painful and drawn out. There is a victimization going on in this card. Clinging to the past when there is so much to be immensely grateful for now. There are times when we have to shake these ghosts that seem to be sucking our sweet nectar. There is a time to feel it all, but there is also a time to check in and make sure one is not dwelling in the darkness for too long. It arises for us to learn and grow, but it isn’t meant for us to set up camp and remain in the shadows. Energy is always flowing, the waters always moving, and there is always the opportunity to navigate in a new way. Five of Cups can represent something like an investment in unhealthy emotions or ways of thinking, a death in the family, something that is weighing on you in the slightest or heaviest way that is draining your energy. Ask yourself, maybe through journaling or whenever you feel, has there been to deep of an investment to that which is no longer serving you? Have you been grieving, sitting in sadness, or wallowing for too long? It is time to get fresh energy flowing. Whatever has happened or whatever state you find yourself in, it can be learned from and used wisely as another tool through your travels.
All that pains us and pushes us is also a catalyst for creation. Some of the most beautiful artists in the world experienced tremendous pain in life and transmuted this energy to beauty for themselves and others. We are not only one label or shape that we can package nicely and say “This is me” Jesus….that would be fucking boring. If one can package themselves in any shade of the broad spectrum, this will be a sad day. We are ALL vast and uniquely orchestrated beings. When we identify heavy with one aspect of self we can tend to ignore or even have a distaste for the other. Sometimes this can block or cut off valuable aspects of or being. Five of Cups is an opportunity to embrace what may feel harsh in the beginning, but a reminder to not dwell there and know that all can be transmuted into creative energy. Many times when we feel we are in a slump or even stuck in any state of despair we think well shit…..THIS IS IT!!!! At that specific moment is when the most brilliant creation is waiting be birthed forth. As death comes of an aspect of being we are ready for the creative force to move us. This is part of the invitation here. Look at what is being tuned into and do not wallow. Feel, but do not stay in any lowly state too long. Allow your being to mature, learn and move on.
We are vast, creative forces with many options to explore. Allow the natural movement flow.
Son of Pentacles is gazing down, his attention is a one pointed focus in a specific direction. Where his attention is present there is light, the rest of the card is dark. He is reminding us where we place our attention is where we will expand the greatest. The present focus is on his work/vision where he is putting every ounce of his sweet attention. Above him is the crescent moon and pentacle. He is led by his intuition which is grounded in the earthly realm. Through experience his intuition has become refined and trustworthy. At this time his attention is in the details of his work. Son of Pentacles is grounded in his being and he moves from the unwavering space within him which does not lead him astray. He knows his vision can only be fully realized if he puts all of his attention towards his vision every day. The Son of Pentacles is a maturing energy which takes the exciting energy of an initial vision and puts it into day to day action in order for the vision to fully embody in physical form.
Day to day action will be successful as the energy is present as is the desire to bring forth vision to reality. The Son of Pentacles is chosen when the energy is present to bring forth tangible results and not one that simply holds ideas or concepts that are fleeting. This is the time to allow oneself to be fully involved in creation and allow what wishes to flow through to seduce ones full attention. The seeds have already been planted, watered, and now they are ready to bloom under your feet. Every action taken now will not be gone to waste. Moving from your being in the direction that feels in full alignment will feel clear, light, and open. Because this vision is moving from this space it is bound to do well with all action and energy toward it. Moving with the wholeness of ones being as well as the commitment and action combined will bring this vision manifest. The Son of Pentacles does not seem to be going fast, but slowly and attentively. The details are much more important than speed. Allow authentic naturalness to be priority before anything else. With this way of moving there will be a realness in the vision that will speak for you and be shared with those who align with what is shared. Time will vanish when one is immersed in this natural space of creation.
Son of Pentacles is building a foundation. The capacity may not be understood to its fullness, but it is being nurtured, cultivated, and created each step of the way. Son of Pentacles is moved by the moon, his intuition, and honors this space within him and in others. Because he moves in this way the foundation he is creating cannot fail because the foundation has been built from within and not from the material realm. His strength has been gained from the peace within his being which is now beginning to create a world and vision which can be shared with more than just himself. He has a solid way about him that does not bend or break easily. Through experiencing what he has this far along his journey he has insight and wisdom to share that will be useful to others. This experience and insight will come through on the project he is currently focused on. All dots are connecting and he does not doubt which way he is moving, he simply knows that he must take consistent action each day for him to share his experience with others who may benefit.
Fire energy is radiating from one single wand. Growing off the wand are three smaller branches flowering off the main branch. The wand represents you, it is you who is flowering. The three blooms represent Mind~Body~Spirit. The ONE wand is representing the connection of all three. The internal power you are feeling is naturally blooming and merging these three aspects of you. Growth is happening on all levels, refining subtleties within you. Where you decide to point your wand your focus and attention is where you will see the most blooming. Ace of Wands is the reflection of great internal fire moving through you that where directed will expand as much as your attention presently focuses. The nature of this card is mirroring this power that is of high momentum as choice and action merge. Choose wisely at this time what you are fueling, this energy can be wasted just as much as it can be honed in and used productively. Right now it is strong and potent. This felt power and the action are one energy. If only felt but not merged with action this fire will burn out and dim. Like any season of life some energies are here for specific times and when we are in tune with our being we can ride that energy in appropriate timing.
The fire that blooms within has lived experiences that create a depth that adds to all that we do. Whether we are interacting with someone we just met, starting a business, sharing space with family and friends, embarking on a new adventure, or working towards a vision that is seasoned and morphing. The experiences each one of us has lived thus far have helped us expand and grow in ways we did not plan for and in ways we could never have imagined. Life is spontaneous in its natural state, organic and fresh. When we contemplate our life and how many plans have morphed and shift we can see how we truly never know how details will work out or how discoveries will emerge and show us another part of ourselves that was ready to birth itself. Can we trust this natural spontaneity of life that is unfolding, do we even have to ask that question or is it clear? Ace of Wands is inviting one to say yes, and to place attention on what direction feels true. Being honest and transparent one cannot fail. Your primal energy, your intuition, is not hinting or giving you cute little signs that you have to wonder about. The inner voice is loud and clear. If you don’t move this energy it will die, it is asking for movement. There is One wand here, only one. The invitation is to focus this energy on that creative idea, business plan, whatever it is you are already working on or are ready to launch into. Focusing energy daily on this vision or idea that is present will feed the fire and extend its life. If you are feeding the fire you will be nourishing and balancing without trying, it has the opportunity to become effortless. All the aspects of your being that are flowering are pushing through your limitations to create the vision you can already feel. Allow. Allow. And keep allowing. Intuitively, you do not need to think that much about it, you already can feel how to move. Simply act and put energy forth daily.
When Ace of Wands appears it is a great time to kick any habits that may be lingering that you have been feeling or trying to change. Smoking, eating habits, exercise, anything that you feel is no longer serving you and draining your energy. This clearing will only add fuel to the fire and create clean and healthy space to encourage your blooming. It’s time to think if you don’t want to be doing this habit in 10 or 20 years do not keep feeding it now. Or, if you want to see something new integrated within your life now is the time to invite it in. Habits you abandon or invite in will stick at this time and become as natural as brushing your teeth, unless you suck at that…then bad example. Ace of Wands invites spring cleaning in all aspects you feel can use change. Cleaning the space which you live, Getting rid of what you don’t use and having a fresh space for your work, home, creative spaces. All of this will assist in putting your attention where it is intuitively wanting to move. Letting go of old dusty stuff that doesn’t matter, internally and externally. Enjoy the alive, clean, forward moving energy present. One can completely invest in that which you are organically allured by. Trust this natural cleaning energy and the fire that is present to move you. It is not blind faith, your intuition is guiding you in the right direction.
Trust in yourself is growing and maturing.
Justice. What is being served? What have you been serving to yourself and the world? We are transparent creatures. If we hide from ourselves we close the doors of Justice and Truth. Sometimes we find what we hide can really not remain hidden for long. The rivers of life are always flowing and they do not leave anything within the being untouched. Every dark and light corner will be seen. The Justice Card is looking right at you. A white and black cat with tails intertwined peer into you, seeing what perhaps is time to take a closer look at. The cats reflect the wholeness of you. The light and the dark aspects of life, and of you. If you couldn’t tell already….this card screams pay attention! Something is coming up now that demands all of you. Not just part of you, not just a taste….its all or nothing! This is an exciting time, or at least it has the possibility of being looked at in this light. When Justice is served it means honesty, transparency, and vulnerability with yourself and others. These shifts of honesty, vulnerability, and transparency will shift ones life dramatically. When things feel uncomfortable and unknown the invitation is to be honest with ourselves in the present moment, although we do not always know the answer or solution to a situation. Sometimes we will not know and we can relax in this unknown space as much as we can relax when an answer arises. We cannot rely only on answers in order to be at peace with what is, there will be periods in life when everything is up in the air with no answer to cling to. The opportunity to be honest in the present moment expands infinitely. Lies can be seen in the eyes. One cannot hide. The more honesty becomes our natural way, not something we try and do, we become more aware of subtle workings of dishonesty within ourselves and others. Our discernment becomes refined. We may not always know how the next best way to move is, but we always have the opportunity to be straight with where we are within our being.
What is arising now? What situation is begging to be looked at more closely? Attention is everything. Justice asks for looking at all angles and perspectives a situation. Looking from your own perspective and how you truly feel, looking at others perspective and what they are experiencing. The point is not to see in black and white, in the way of you are right and another is wrong. The word of the wise cats on the card is to encompass all light and dark. This is seeing the entirety of the picture and not only one narrow minded point of view. Your ways of being right will be limiting to you now, this card serves the highest good of all, not only your bubble of a universe. Think vast. The call to action is to call in compassion, gentleness, and your own honesty. You cannot dictate how others involved will be and you cannot always know if those involved will be honest. But you can be real with yourself and all involved for your own peace of mind. The sword pointing downward between the cats is symbolic of action, however, because it is not upright it does not necessarily mean victory in the way that you will get what you want from the situation. However, you will get what is appropriate for growth and expansion. Sometimes hard lessons are learned here, but humbling and undeniably perfect as one sees why all must transpire in the way things unfold.
The Diamond in the center of the card can be a symbol of many ideas and concepts like anything else. What is felt strongly is the representation of a yoni shaped like a diamond. The birth of being comes from this diamond. As one is alive in this wild, magical circus, can we see how the life which springs from your being is creating worlds upon worlds? The inquiry is to investigate the worlds which one is creating? Pay attention to what is arising within your experience. What are you creating? What does your inner being feel like? Are you hiding or making up stories, actively believing for them to be true? Are you believing deluded stories that are distant from the essence of your being? Justice invites one to return home. Whatever situation, whatever experience, whatever it is that is asking you to take a look more deeply. Time is to open, acknowledge, see, inquire, investigate, with honesty. This will allow you to look at what is instead trying to play with escapism in any way shape or form. Notice if heaviness within your being is present, this heaviness is most often than not associated with a false story being told within your inner experience. Of course the reminder for Justice is that life is not always black and white, but do yourself the service of being present where you are. Be honest. There is a relaxation in your present moment experience that comes with the realness of your transparency. You will feel it immediately as soon as this “confession” takes place. Remember, you are a multidimensional being that is also laughing hysterically on another plane as you stumble and fall. Don’t forget to throw your hands up and fucking laugh! Remember the only thing you can admit is the truth….and its going to emerge anyways, so now is the time.
Justice will arise. Whatever is unfolding, however challenging it may be, it is stretching you. Allow yourself to be a little uncomfortable because you are growing.
Nine cups are drawn in the shape of a lucky horse shoe with a crescent moon at the top of the card. The moon is depicts the listening to subtle guidance within that has moved one in a way that feels gratitude and contentment for what is. The hues of blue and purple in the background are soothing colors that reflects a being of equanimity and deep rest within. This is a time where one is enjoying the pleasures of life, but not taking life for granted and appreciating deeply what is present. Nine of Cups can feel a bit day dreamy as the cups float against the smooth horizon. The invitation is to allow the daydreaming to be, as this is your inspiration and creativity. However, allow daydreaming and action to merge towards those visions. This will allow dreams to fully take form. There is deep joy in all areas of ones experience now and whatever way you move will be from a place of love, not fear or doubt. This will create tremendous beauty in your wake.
Cups represent the emotional state of being, relationships, self expression, creativity, and moving from the heart. At this time one is overflowing in all areas of life and love is pouring through to all relationships and creations. As you feel the abundance in all aspects of life, worry and fear has left your experience. It simply isn’t there, life is moving you in a way that is most natural to your being. The power of presence is felt instead of the mind ruling your action. Nine of Cups is a natural balance with all of nature where one is not feeling as an outsider in life, but connected to the whole of creation. The magic of what is felt has already flooded through the bloodstream and there is no going back to old ways of being. Like a snake, many skins have been shed and the way in which you feel life is without tension. This moves you to create, play, work, and communicate in ways that are open and fresh. Manipulation, grasping, and wanting life to be different is gone and one is seeing the immensity of beauty that is always here.
Nine of Cups is a card of gratitude. The more gratitude that is felt the less we feel we need to have more. We really begin to experience the fullness of our life emanating from the inside instead of trying to collect things, people, or experience to fulfill inner discontent. Nine of Cups is full of overflowing abundance, this does not necessarily mean one is wealthy in terms of monetary gains. One is fulfilled of the riches of simply being alive. This vibration alone turns everything in gold. All that you place your energy towards come from this clear channel. You are creating beauty, experiencing love, joy, relationships are flourishing, and others you come into contact with are inspired and fulfilling meetings. Any goal you have now will do well if you remain investing your energy in the direction you wish. The Nine of Cups is a time of enjoying beauty in mother earth and your self, delighting in your senses, art, love making, and all that connects you to life. This automatically inspires every movement, all creation, work, and all things birthed from you now.
Something to think about in relishing in life is that the ebb and flow is always changing. Now may be all about the pleasures of life and enjoying, but the invitation here is to keep one foot on the ground as you enjoy and to not over indulge in what may “feel good.” The invitation is to be in deep gratitude for what is. When this vibration is present overindulgence will not be an issue and one can fully enjoy the present. Nine of Cups is the wish card of the deck. Not that something will fall out of thin air into your lap, but where your energy is invested will come into full physical being at this time.
Three of Pentacles speaks to a vision or goal that will come to full completion. The inspiration, excitement, drive, and commitment are all forces within the Three of Pentacles that are supporting the totality of this creative goal or business venture. All skills you have are unique to your vision and merged with a creative mind, whatever goal is being focused on cannot be recreated by another. This creative juice can only flow from you in the unique way it shows up, therefore there is no competition. The work you are focused on is deeply rewarding and you are committed to see the project through. You are working in a way that you are satisfied with the process of your creation. The invitation is to have an absolute yes as you make decisions along the way. If something feels “off” as you create, it’s important to renavigate and do something differently. You want to feel a Fuck Yes as you move and grove. The happier and connected you feel with your work, the more inspiration flows effortlessly. Cutting corners, rushing, or trying to complete your goal quickly will only slow you down. Cutting corners will be felt by you and cannot be satisfying. Sometimes slow and steady can be highly effective and efficient. Finish the day completely satisfied with what you create. All or nothing baby!
Doubt is your worst companion right now. Where as there are times in our lives we need to doubt and question what we are doing, right now is the time to fully step into creation and blaze the fucking trail. No backing down. Your full heart is present and joyful in this work. If there are any doubts or opposing forces at play, turn that energy around into a creative drive that sees opportunity at a sign of doubt. If there is anyone in your life who doubts or questions what you are doing, that is okay! Let them! Everyone is entitled to their freedom of speech. Others can doubt what you are doing and completely disagree. Use that as a reminder that you love what you do. Remember, not everyone will understand you and there is no need to explain yourself either. Others doubt can only effect you when you are doubting yourself. Allow others to speak and express, but stay strong in your hearts journey. Three of Pentacles says let doubt fall away and stay true to your goal and vision. Be attentive to not get so caught up in the end goal that you aren’t enjoying present moment experience. Allow your goal or vision to be the full embodiment of how you live your life moment to moment.
Three of Pentacles depicts a mountain with three peaks. Underneath the mountain are three pentacles mirroring the shape of the mountain peaks. As above so Below. What is inside you is being birthed into the world. Your beauty cannot be hidden and it is bursting out. What is contained within you cannot help but manifest itself into the physical world. It is the One dancing seemingly inside and outside. Any fears you allow to grow inside will effect your vision, it will create a fog over the beauty of your goal. Three of Pentacles encourages you to not fear success or failure, simply keep following your natural intuition and guidance. Your clear vision, energy investment, and daily momentum towards your goal will allow this to come to full fruition. Do not be afraid to ask other peoples opinion or input on what you are doing, especially if they have any experience that could give you a alternative point of view. Always welcome the positive and creative input from others to assist in the expansion of your creations. Planning for your vision into smaller goals each day can help you complete the project as a whole. No need to obsessively plan or dictate each small step of creation. Think in terms of what sounds fun for you to do everyday. When you take that attitude into the project, stress of completing the whole project will fall away. You will be able to remain in presence and forget about “when it should be completed” As long as you are enjoying the process and putting your love in the direction your heart flows, you will be met with the same in return. Enjoy the process and keep creating.
The Empress is the earth mother. She is the feminine that nurtures all of life. She is the beauty seen in nature, art that moves you, music which ignites the fire within. She is fertile with child, and she is birthing creativity and expression. She rules the planet venus and pure evidence that Grace exists. The Empress is the reminder of deep nurturing, love, and growth in the masculine and the feminine presence. The Empress card depicts a white tree glowing in the moonlight with a pink and purple energy emitting from the magic within. A crescent moon shines above, the moon is all that is woman. She represents women from all stages of life, reminding us of the soft yet powerful light the feminine carries. There is something in this feminine presence that seems to remove all doubt, fear, lack, and frustration from ones path. This card can either represent yourself, someone else in your life, or attributes that are reminding you to nurture, love, and care for all you create. Allow anything that is impeding you to be seen as a small bump in the road, or nothing at all. The more we allow this feminine presence to naturally bloom and flourish, we are easily guided on our path. Seeing how all is interconnected, one is never somewhere in life conflicting ones path. The Empress reminds us all stages, phases, growth, death and rebirth unfolding and will continue to cycle naturally.
The Empress is for man or woman nurturing their creative gifts and abilities, giving the full attention and watching them transform quickly and grow beyond anything imaginable. The Empress encourages this creativity to be developed and for all resources to be explored and utilized. The Empress is the divine mother of creation. All that is birthed, is birthed through her. She has no limits to what creations can be brought forth and there is not end to what can be discovered. The Empress takes the creative energy of a child into a mature adult who has experience on this earth. The empress creates from all she has seen and tells stories through her creations. The Empress is not interested in work that is robotic and mundane. She allows life to course through her, spontaneously and alive, fresh in the moment. The Empress ignites a natural life, one that is born from the earth. She is the ancient grandmother tree that contains all wisdom and skill to create what is felt inside. She is the laughter that bursts when we don’t trust our natural process and think in terms of practicality. Her practicality is different from the mainstream world. Her practical nature comes from the knowing that she is one with all of nature, she is nature itself. She knows what comes through her will always be supported by the divine will. As the trees are supported to grow fully and robustly, she too will be supported in all her hearts natural desire to be.
The Empress is grounded in the present plane and simultaneously has access to all other realms. She is traveling in each moment as she is here, she feels/sees how her vibration is traveling through all of time in every moment. The Empress knows that the deep seeds of creation within her have been nurtured deeply. Not only by her own energy on this plane, but the infinite vibration of her expression that travels throughout and beyond time. This immense creative energy cannot fail as it moves, it is the most natural and simple when we allow it to be whatever it wants to be. Is it even up to us? Can a musician not play music? Do they even have a choice? Maybe….but perhaps, food for thought. How can we deny our most intimate natural expression? Does this occur because we feel different or strange, maybe afraid of what others think? All of those are absurd illusions we buy into when we want to believe in our separation from life. This is an intimate part of all of our process. We can try and practically find ways to maneuver out of our naturalness to fit in with a mainstream system. We are free to do so. However, The Empress is the embodiment of full allowance for gifts and magic to flow through her veins. She does not hide who she is. Like the flower that blooms without thinking, this is The Empress. Her natural evolution to embody all of creation without a thought. It simply, must arise from her being.
The Empress is the mother of the moon. She opens for you if you share your presence with her. She drinks you inside until you completely merge with her. Her femininity wraps you in her velvet cloak and embraces you and encourages you to deeply follow the secret longings of your heart. She comes to you in the night with a spark of an idea, a fire felt inside, music to be played, places for you to discover within and without. She is the birth of all of life and reminds you of the miraculous nature you are. Anything you wish to create she shows is possible. She encourages one to witness the power of attention put into any creation and the fruits of the work one will discover. This springs from an idea, but can also die as an idea. Only with energy put into action will this birth take the embodiment of life.
Four of Wands reveals itself at a time of a deep joy that springs from a completion of a chapter in ones life. A new way of seeing coming into being. Something has been discovered which was masking clarity and true vision. A portal has been opened within ones being. What was once closed is now wide open and shining in a completely new way, touching dark spaces with renewed energy. The portal is seen through the wands cross that forms a diamond shape. Diamonds are strong and pure, representing the essence of our spirit before we place self judgement to cover up our being. What is the veil that has been lifted and how are you seeing in a brand new way? Something about this shift in perception has revealed a new way of seeing that cannot be discarded. A new reality is being experienced and this is a time where one is stable in listening to the voice of Spirit/God within them. The glowing shade of blue in the center of the card is the intuitive voice which guides us and the yellow/red bursts of color is the natural action which springs forth from this voice. As this portal is opened into our infinite nature we are extending freedom to all of life to dance in its brilliance.
There is an intuitive intelligence here. One that is infinitely expanding naturally. Life is expanding on its own and when we force or push our conditioned ways on life we begin to feel contracted. As we swim with the stream of life, the doors of infinity keep revealing more love and beauty to be seen. We discover ways in which we were closing the doors that were presenting themselves to us. The Four of Wands is an expansion where one is saying yes to life and allowing the invitation of the divine to take over completely. Whatever challenges have appeared within ones life are all seen as invitations to drop in completely to life as it is. This extends a massive feeling of gratitude within the being for all challenges that have been experienced and all challenges that will come.
There is an interesting and quite beautiful dance that is happening with the Four of Wands. There is an explosion of excitement and joy that is being expressed but beyond that is a silent depth is recognized that has given birth to this explosion. A peace and contentment is present and exciting adventure is simultaneously on the rise. Relationships, projects, creativity, and all that is engaged with right now will be emerging with fluidity and ease. There is a clarity in movement that is expressing itself in all areas of ones life. Communicating seems to come easier, working is joyful and doesn’t feel like work, there is lightness in how one moves from the body and into life. Weight that was being held has been discovered to be illusion and now somehow fallen away. An exciting time to feel weightless and free.
If life isn’t feeling light within the being, Four of Wands is inviting one to investigate the heaviness that is felt within. To not ignore the heaviness, but to open that door and acknowledge what wishes to be seen. Our pain is an invitation to extend more love, compassion, and gentleness towards ourself. If we resist/ignore our pain it strengthens and grows in power. The more open we are to looking at what is arising we are telling life that we are willing to be honest with ourselves. This honesty allows us to embrace all that arises and we learn more and more to extend love instead of judgement. Instead of perceiving problems as obstacles we extend freedom to ourselves and others to feel what is present in order to move through with all embracing arms. All is magick. All is love.
The Son of Cups is more mature than the Daughter of Cups with a depth of darkness and light that add to his character. The Daughter of Cups was in peaceful, illuminated water, while the Son of Cups has a movement drawing in an upward direction. This is showing a new chapter in life in a different direction that is stemming from what has been learned through his current experience. It is a new direction that comes from what he has bared witness to and experienced of light and dark. This new movement comes from wisdom that has unraveled over the course of his experience. The Son of Cups does not have the maturity as the Father, but has much more experience than the Daughter does in her sweet innocence. Different phases of life stretch our capacity in numerous ways and now is that of a growing phase for the Son. There is tremendous growth and depth, but not at the peak of maturity. The Son of Cups is at an exciting time shedding immense amounts of what no longer serves and highly sensitive to what does. So much so, that circumstances are rapidly changing to match the depth of what he is internally discovering.
Cups are linked with love and relationships, connections, and emotional well being. The cup in front of the swan is a combination of dark and light emotions at play. There is tremendous amount of heavy and light emotional energy bursting in this cup, but the Son at this time has the maturity to keep moving forward with grace. The Son of Cups is using this bubbling energy for creative thinking and momentum forward. Although there is some darkness in the cup this should not scare the one who pulls the card. We all have a depth of dark and light within and they can be harnessed and used in many creative and positive ways. How we perceive the darkness and light will determine if they will be used constructively or not. There is a good and healthy balance here that joins heart and mind energy. The Son of Cups is finding a better balance of intuition and logic combination. However, if he was pulled upside down it can mean the emotions are not being cared for properly and there can be movements that are hasty and overly emotional.
The Son of Cups emotions are very much concentrated within him. They are not expanding over the entire card. This energy is very much in the center of focus right now as he is moving from the inside out. He is introspective and allowing himself to feel the depth of the wide spectrum of his emotions. He is looking at triggers and paying attention to what feels healthy for him and what feels toxic. He is discovering illusions that have been deeply rooted and watching them fall away. There are many changes happening on very subtle levels. Ones he cannot entirely describe, but feeling completely and allowing grace to care for the changes. The invitation is to allow the exploration of the inner workings, but to not become self absorbed and narrow. Allow yourself to explore naturally, but do not obsess. This card can be equally as positive as it is negative. A good way to observe and see is how the inner/outer life is balancing. Is one paying attention to only inner and not practical life? This is something to be watchful of with this card. An invitation to learn from those who are the completely different from you is helpful, as they can have strengths you do not have. The invitation is to not neglect any aspect of self. As we connect more deeply with our naturalness all of these things begin to make sense and fall into their own balance, and that looks entirely different for everyone.
This is a time to investigate your how you genuinely feel. How are you taking care of yourself? Sometimes we take immense care in one way and completely fall off the wagon in another. The Son of Cups calls for balance in all aspects of life. Inviting sensitivity and compassion toward yourself and others now will make a world of difference. Whatever is being discovered, as dark or light as it may be can be seen in positive regard when we become honest and transparent with ourselves and take right action. With right action we will be guided in a direction that is in alignment with the highest good for ourselves and all of life. With right action use intuition, but don’t ignore logic and reason when they are useful. The capacity for all is there, use the balance of both as you move forward into unknown spaces.
Nine of Swords is a card that brings up the question, “Is what is happening as bad as it feels, or am I contributing to the unrest, dis-ease, and anxiety, which is felt within? Is it really so bad?” Look honestly to see if what you think is causing you pain, or if the actual experience that you are presently in is no longer good for you. Making this distinction will clear up a lot of unnecessary pain. What is a real concern and what is a figment of the imagination? The Nine of Swords is indicating there is some great confusion that is unsure of what is imagination and what is really happening.
Nine of Swords addresses if any fears or expectations are being held on to which are disturbing the present moment beauty of all that is in front of you? Are you grateful for what you have, or always wanting more? As we investigate this sometimes we can see that perhaps we are putting too much pressure on ourselves and on life. Trying to make something one way instead of seeing the intrinsic beauty of how it is. As we create expectations on life we put major stress on ourself and life around us that creates a block for life to move naturally, and instead to force it in the way we think it should be. Instead of being one with the grand unfolding we say “No, I think it should be going this way!” Nine of Swords asks us should it really be going the way you think it should go? or, is life happening exactly as it should be? There is a difference between going with the flow as a dead fish and accepting anything that comes and going with the flow of lifes vibrancy, very different. Nine of Swords asks to discern in a way that is more objective or all encompassing. Take a step back to see a broader perspective of the present situation. Spend some time alone and inquire if you going with a healthy flow or one that is unhealthy for you? Is life revealing or presenting something new and exciting that may be covered by a fear of swimming into the unknown? Swimming in uncharted waters can always be a bit scary, but believing in the fear will guide us away from the magic that is constantly revealing itself to us.
This card can arise when negative self talk is perpetual, muddying up the entire experience and causing great confusion within. We cannot and will not always know what is the next best step to make or direction to move in. As we take the time to relax a bit and breath we can discover space within our being to see clearly instead of believing immediately the negative, internal monologue playing out. If you have made it to this moment and you are reading this, things can’t be that bad. You have your vision to see, your mind to think, your heart to feel. Up until now, hopefully, you have become more wise through experience. You have made mistakes and hopefully learned what you would not like to do again. You have learned to be more in tune with the entirety of your being which allows you to be connected with your inner intuitive guide as well as your logical mind. You have all the tools you need to get through any conflict that arises.
The invitation with such a gnarly card is to take time to meditate or take a walk in the park. To do whatever it is that puts you in a deep connection with yourself and all of life. Allowing the discontent , confusion, anger, or whatever negative self talk is present to leave your body. From this space ask “How have I engaged with life up until now? What ways do I wish to live, and what ways do I wish to never to tread again?” This is a good time to contemplate and reflect. First allowing yourself to truly come to the space of internal rest before even getting into these questions. We all have the capacity to ask ourselves these questions from an undivided mind/heart space, but we also must give ourselves the permission to take our time and calm down. One may not be able to do this at the drop of a hat. Maybe it will take one hour, 2 days, a few weeks, or a month to simply relax. It really depends on how entrenched one has been in the state they are in. However long it takes, self judgement in a self destructive way will not work here. Gentleness, Compassion, and Love will be most powerful in shifting gears. Turning to rest in your being allows the harshness to fall away. As this occurs the space opens for one to question themselves, their experience, what is true within the experience and what has been imagined to be true. It is much easier to do this when we aren’t asking these things from an already confused, angry, or fearful state. This can cause even more confusion on top of confusion. It is more than okay to take all the time one needs to nurture, love, and relax into the being before starting to ask questions. It is very different for each human being how to navigate the waters of life. Trust your own path and what you have experienced up until now. This will always be your greatest teacher. The more faith and trust one has within oneself the stronger one will be inside to move with great ease.
Nine Pentacles are arranged in the shape of a diamond with one more pentacle almost invisible in the very center. This hidden pentacle is emanating rainbow colored, vibrant energy through infinite circles. It resembles our source energy and the power and infinitely expanding beauty of unseen powers. The Diamond is symbolic of wealth and abundance. It is an emitter of energy translating to one who is full and abundant to the point of overflowing in one or many aspects of life. Bursting with life force and having a tremendous amount to give. Pentacles associate with the outside reflection of consciousness in our physical reality. They reflect finances, work, health and creativity. If in this moment one doesn’t see how abundant these area in your life are, there is about to be a major shift in a positive direction to your unique soul path.
Completion of an exciting project, a happy home environment, solid finances, and overall improvements in your physical reality that are reflecting more of how you have wished to see your life, but didn’t quite know what to do or not do. Recently, there has been a consist moving in the right direction. Now there is a clear, expansive vision of how this consistency, passion, and energy, has all been focused in a way that is aligning a path with what you would like to express and see in your life. You are not bound by a victim role, you are an active participant in life and are seeing the fruits of your love labor. Because you have moved through many lessons swiftly, many doors have been closed behind you and many will continue to open up. The reminder with the Ten of Pentacles is to keep doing what you are doing, to keep being attracted to that which excites you, to keep on keeping on with the passion that is in your heart. Some may say its a bad idea to go in this way, “It’s not practical.” Thats right it isn’t always practical, it is the spice of life! The magic that allows one to create a unique and soulful path that feels entirely natural to that unique individual. We have our logic and intuition, we can use them both. We must not forget that we cannot ignore our most authentic callings. Ten of Pentacles is revealing that you have not been ignoring. You have been paying attention fully and following your internal compass. You have been heavily tested along the way to see how strong your faith is….good news… you came all the way through and you are still moving in the direction your heart leads. All of the tests are to ground you in your Self so you don’t go down some hum drum path that isn’t yours. It is life asking, “Is this what you really want? Or is there something deeper here that you are still hiding?” Ten of Pentacles indicates you are being completely honest with yourself.
Ten of Cups brings up family and friends. One is thinking of relationships with family/friends more closely giving more of themselves. Time and energy to support, nurture, and develop deeper bonds to those one values most. This creates an environment which love, trust, support is being extended and also received through the good and bad times. Ten of Pentacles extends to not only oneself but to family, friends, and all of life. Perhaps this is a time of sharing oneself and experiences more openly and transparently for others to gain wisdom from your experience. This is a time where one has such an abundance of love it feels as though it can reach every corner of the world. Ten of Pentacles is saying YES give when your cups is overflowing. Also to give wisely to those who have also supported you not only when you were beaming, but also in times where you were lost and confused. Those people in ones life that have showed up regardless of what time in your life you were experiencing are those who also deserve your love and nourishment. What a blessing to give and receive in this way that only allows for further expansion and love to be expressed.
Whatever you are focusing on right now if it hasn’t reached its full potential it is surely already happening. If one is working on a project the invitation is to continue with love and passion and you will receive what you have invested with your energy. If you are investing in a relationship, put in what you would like to see grow. All of your seeds that you are planting within you are showing you now that you are on the correct path. You have been listening deeply and are confident in your movements. Ten of Pentacles is showing how consistent, long term investment of your energy with Family, Friends, Goals, Projects, Business, Health are all worth your energy when genuine and full of love. You are thinking now from a broader perspective and see how each moment is precious and how you invest your time in all aspects of your life is important. The time to relax is now because you are and have been listening to your divine guidance and moving with grace and wisdom from spirit.
//The Emperor depicts an evergreen tree. Tall, healthy, strong, and deeply rooted in the ground. Standing tall against a pure white background, the sun emitting a concentrated energy of light. Wisdom and experience go hand in hand with The Emperor. He is a strong and steady force that has gained tremendous wisdom through his journey. The Emperor is ruled by Aries fire. Representing strong will, determined action through focus, independent, and intelligent nature. The Emperor represents masculine energy, but does not necessarily come from a male. It is the masculine force that is present within oneself or another close in your journey. The Emperor has a strong passion for life and has energy for pleasant and beautiful experiences as well as the challenges life brings for the expansion and greater understanding. He sees challenges as continuous opportunities for growth and learning//
//The Emperor extends his wisdom to those who come to him. He shares wisdom from his own life experience, not what he has heard or read about, but from what he has discovered first hand. He shares wisdom so that others may be able to offer up themselves as he has. The Emperor knows each human being has a gift that shall not die within them, but be passed down to future generations. He brings a sense of grounding to those who meet him. Although they can be going through hard times he reminds them of their own power and guides them to find the answers within themselves. A true emperor does not have those who come to him rely on him, but guides them back to their own source of wisdom which is the same from which his wisdom and guidance arise//
//The Emperor has a way of seeing what his heart desires to bring forth in the physical realm and invests energy, passion, and full focus of attention in that direction until the idea that was once a seed fully manifests in his reality. He is not a dreamer, he is fully action oriented. He acknowledges how his dreaming has had its part to play in his experience and honors and respects that time. However, now he is a master at putting what he wants to see into action. Therefore, he is an inspiration for others to turn their dreams into fully coming to life. With each action, no matter how small or large The Emperor knows that a dream will come into full form when the focus is present. He does not make excuses. He simply uses all his resources and tools in order to embody the life he knows can be experienced. The Emperor does not let those who come to him think that what their heart wishes to express cannot be materialized. He knows each one has all the tools they need to express the divinity that wishes to emerge. Those who come his way leave inspired and know that they can do what they have wished. The Emperor is living proof of this. He is full force action//
//The Invitation here is to embody the characteristics of The Emperor. Is one walking the path that is felt in the heart, or is avoidance still present? As we make space for what is important in our heart this aspect of our life continues to grow and develop. Something we once thought was impossible we now see is very possible. As we focus our attention on an area of our life, that area of our life will grow the amount of time we invest. The invitation is to start somewhere, if we haven’t already. What would genuinely like to be seen in our life that has been neglected or ignored? You know…those secret dreams waiting to emerge? There is an opportunity now to drink up the energy of The Emperor and know that what wishes to be seen in our life can be experienced. As we begin to see the fruits of our actions we begin to start abandoning that which doesn’t serve our highest good and allow ourselves to keep moving and expanding in the direction that is most natural to us. Are we expanding deep roots into that which we deeply love, or are we still doubting the truth of how we wish to express? The Emperor embodies an internal structure and stability that relies on no outside source other than self. He reminds us to always start from within as we move in this life. We have the internal stability with our connection as divine source that allows us to move in a way that is true and honest with oneself and all of life.
In the darkness the Six of Swords are jumbled together. Above the darkness is a beautiful rainbow and pure light above. Daunting and bright simultaneously the Six of Swords is revealing that times have been testing and hard, but a great deal has been learned during this time to navigate in a new way and into the light. There has been trauma and pain experienced. This has led to a clearer sight of the direction to move in, but the there is some healing to undergo as one moves in a new direction. What experience is it time to move through or move away from completely? It may be a love relationship, a reoccurring self-sabotaging pattern, or anything that has caused more pain than joy. How can this experience be seen for what it is so one can move in greater alignment? One will either find a great ease and shift within the experience, or choose to completely leave the situation. It ain’t easy, but the newfound understanding will lead to more insight and a clearer path. Its a pretty exciting time for this newfound clarity and movement.
The hardship that one has experienced may still be fresh inside the being. Even through the pain the Six of Swords invitation is to have trust in oneself through this time. We are always deeply cared for throughout the highs and lows. The invitation is to trust even more deeply and to move with what you know is healthy and true for yourself and your path. This is not a time to be influenced by what others may think, but to take into account everything you have experienced and what you will and will no longer accept in your field. There are times when what we have experienced has been painful, but also necessary for our growth and understanding of what is and is not acceptable. This is the time to take the highest road that only you in your heart can know.
Whether the hardship has been in business/creativity/love relationships/family life there is a big shift now. One has all the information needed to move forward to a new level of beauty in life. All the pieces of the puzzle are on the table. The use of logic as well as the intuition are equally important now. There are some times where we have the answers immediately and know what to do, this brings about swift and organic movement. With this card there has been some delay in what to do and with this has caused some temporary confusion. The invitation is to take a seat, feel and think the situation through and use both left and right side of your brain to go to town with this one. Look at what has been in front of you and look at the direction you want to go. Are you headed that way fully? If you are, that means that much has already been resolved. If you are not headed in the direction of most intimate alignment with yourself then now is the time to choose. Tick Tock. The time is now. There will be great relief with forward movement. Trust in yourself and your ability to choose the right action for your spirit to blossom even more beautifully. No need to doubt your decision. Everything is in front of you. All the messages in plain sight and through dreamtime have been clear.
Drawn are two white cups contrasting a black background with two red roses equally touching one another. The Two of Cups is not as strong of a card as The Lovers, however, it has infinite potential to go in that direction if both parties are willing to embark upon the depth of this journey. This card can indicate any kind of relationship, not only a union between to souls. It can indicate a partnership with ones work, the relationship with self and all of life, goals, creativity, friendships, and any aspect in life that one is presently united with. The cups are white indicating purity and innocence and the dark background indicates that many subconscious layers have been faced in order to reveal the purity and innocence of the white cups. Roses vibrate at the highest energetic frequency of any flower on earth. Roses remind us that within the fullest energetic capacity of our own being we can share this within a love relationship as we continue to be true to ourselves. If it is a project, goal, creative endeavor, work, or other union it is the possible to develop a genuine growth and bond in all areas. If one is moving in accordance with their unique path one will be in a strong union in all relationships that are present. At least, the potential is there. When we move from fear, selfishness, or greed in any way, our relationships will reflect this state. We are able to choose to move through these states if we have the willingness/honesty/transparency to do so.
Relationship with Self
Will always be the number one relationship. As we continue our journey we have the beautiful gift of discovering ourselves and living in accordance with Spirit. Whether you call this Higher Self, God, Authenticity, or Being Yourself….its simply a different use of language to express our divine/human essence. As our relationship deepens with ourself we will see a depth of relationship around us that is showing us our own capacity of connection within ourselves. As we become more in line with our unique spirit our relationships will be in accordance with our vibration. People will come in and out of our lives as we are individually changing and growing. Long term deep relationships will continue to enrich our journey. Relationships will come together and fall away in natural ways as we are all on very unique paths learning specific lessons for our souls purpose/expression. The more we nourish ourselves from the inside we will be an emitter of energy instead of one who is only taking or trying to draw in energy from others/environment. As we feel full internally this will extend outward in our work, creativity, love relationships, and friendships. We are all doing the best we can. Two of Cups invites us to cultivate compassion and gentleness with each other when differences arise. When differences occur many times the answer is more love where there is frustration and confusion. As the compassion and love deepens for ourself it will naturally extend to others and all of life.
Represented by the Two of Cups is an inspiring relationship that is equally fulfilling. Each partner is coming together with the intent to walk their individual paths allowing spirit to guide them while loving and supporting each other as they go. The lovers see that if they are each fulfilling their purpose/expression than their bond can move through the obstacles that come. Where the Lovers Card is more likely to be a longterm partnership the Two of Cups has less strength, but the possibility of strength The Lovers card has is still possible. The Two of Cups indicates that both individuals have the power to walk through the fire, but it may or may not happen within this partnership. All the inner spirit work that has been experienced by these two souls has been testing for both and much of their hurdles have been successfully overcome. However, they are still maturing in their being and may only be in each others lives for a very specific time. Either way there is tremendous deep inner work that has united these two for each one to expand tremendously. Each relationship is never wasted. Consciousness does not waste anything through experience. Learning is always occurring. Whether the relationships continues or shifts forms, it has changed each one to discover a deeper depth self.
What is our Relationship with work and creation? The more we know ourselves we will stop leaking energy to that which doesn’t serve our spirit. We will stop working at jobs that drain our energy and we will start working and creating with what is purposeful and meaningful to our individual paths. The Two of Cups is a reminder if we are working/creating in a way that is not in alignment that we can create space everyday to work in the direction we would like to see expand. When we create space for what is in alignment for our unique path we naturally are inviting in a new direction. Perhaps you cannot leave your job today you don’t fully love, but maybe if you put an hour aside a day to what you love this energy will keep expanding until transitioning fully to work and create in accordance to your hearts truth. We are all unique and what is good or exciting for one is not good and exciting for another. Two of Cups asks us if we are nurturing our work/creativity in a genuine direction? Or do we still think it is impossible to do what we love? Two of Cups says there is always a way to nurture our work/creativity each day, even if it is for 5 minutes. As we do this, we will see how this expands over time. We will see and feel the fruits that come from our energy investment.
The Hierophant is raising the unconscious to the conscious. He signifies bringing ancient universal wisdom and knowledge among fellow humans. The card embodies wisdom, unlocking great potential, right action through experience/understanding, and depth of sincere commitment in all aspects of life. If the Hierophant is not describing yourself it means that guidance is on its way. Something which is out of your sphere of knowing will be presented. The Hierophant is an invitation to go within and seek the answers you need or to seek a guide that could assist you. Right action that is expressed here is not only for the one pulling the card, but right action for everyone the card holder impacts. The invitation is to think on a global scale than only a personal way, which can be limiting and single minded. The Hierophant is a card of the bigger picture, not only the individual one.
Is there a battle between your spiritual knowledge and what is right for you? Is there a contradiction that has a missing element? This is a time to delve into what you think is true and reinvestigate beliefs or philosophies that might be outgrown and no longer serving the highest good. The Hierophant is a card to remind us to never stop learning and expanding and questioning what we may think is true. Sometimes as we come to conclusions in life or belief systems we become trapped in false ways of thinking that are no longer relevant in our lives. There is always a more subtle, and deeper depth to discover. These water are infinite. Life is always fresh when we have a childlike wonder that always is open to find out why. The Hierophant asks us to remember our childlike ways of learning so we don’t become stuck in certain ways of thinking/being that make us stagnant in our own lives.
The Hierophant card can also show a current or future relationship of a deep spirit based love connection. Someone who you can evolve with and bring the subconscious to light within each of you. This partnership will be the meeting of the divine to express the work that needs to be done through both of you. You are both open to being clear channels for divinity to work through you. There will be an immediate connection upon the meeting of both souls that recognizes the depth of a true connection felt. Each partner will be exposing in the other that which was still hidden inside. Because there is a willingness to be open to each other and to life there will be immense fire that burns through illusions and old karmic wounds. There is a unique potential to unite in sacred consciousness opening yourselves to be gateways for the divine to express itself on earth. If each one can allow the flow of grace, love, and genuine understanding there will be tremendous growth and sacred unity within this partnership.
The World. For myself the drawing looks like an eye. A white inner circle signifying clarity of vision, surrounded by a black abyss with 6 flowers rotating in harmony around the ring. The next layer is one of snake skin, reminding me of the serpent biting its own tail symbolizing infinite wholeness. The outer ring is rainbow colored encompassing the entire spectrum of colors we experience in our lives. There is balance, peace, expansion, and wholeness present. The background shows the light of day and the dark starry night reflecting the embodiment of the shadow and light of our own being. Such depth and beauty of oneself exists not because we deny one or grasp another, but because we see how both light and dark are serving our highest expression of being.
This card is a reflection of living fully. To learn, grow, and discover our depth of being is the greatest gift of this life that is revealing itself each glorious day. Through our darkness we are delving deeply into the subconscious abyss of the layers that wish to be recognized and brought into the light. As we continue our infinite journey and delve into the galaxies of our being we become more open to uncovering ourselves through our dark experiences finding that the exposure of these aspects ourself are not to be feared. They can be held and seen as they merge with our light. The World card is signifying a maturing and depth that has come from all that has been experienced and a completion of a cycle that has given birth to a greater understanding of oneself.
At this time one is in harmony with seeing/feeling “I’m exactly where I’m suppose to be.” This is a powerful place to move from as we see nothing is a mistake and all that is occurring within the human experience is assisting our learning. One innately feels that he/she is moving in accordance with all of life in all aspects of being. Challenges that come at this time are embraced with more compassion, love, and understanding now and this allows for a graceful, fluid movement in ones journey. There is a deep shedding of doubt and uncertainty as the power of trust is embodied fully at this time. There has been much exploration and discovery that has opened up into a fulfillment of a purposeful forward momentum. A completion of a childlike cycle is coming to a close, keeping the wonder of a child but embodying a deeper and more mature understanding of ones true nature.
Genuine passions, interests, gifts, obsessions, are now seen fully and are expressing through ones being more freely than ever before. There is a connection of all those weird interests that one is drawn to and they are all working together in harmony to be nurtured, developed and shared with more than just oneself. There is a deeper understanding here of why we do what we do. We all have gifts that will kill us slowly if we don’t express and share them. Imagine a musician hiding the way his soul sings and plays music? We must express our being and this changes over the course of our lifetime. The World card is a recognition that yes you are using your gifts and they are expanding and being shared more openly and will continue to bloom. The World card comes when we are excited, full, whole, and content with our process while we continue to learn, grow, and expand with all of our experiences.
Two crossed swords below the moon eclipsing the sun. The light is still showing around the ring of the moon, but it is quite a small expansion of light. There is a decision to be made and there has been a long delay in the decision making. Two of Swords indicates you may not have all the information you need to make the right decision. Instead of avoiding, this is a time to make a decision with careful thought and honest intention. Pay attention to what is really in front of you. This approach at this time must be seeing the situation as it is rather than seeing what you would like to see. One must lay all the cards out on the table in order to make the best decision. Any avoidance of the decision to be made will only make it more difficult to choose as deeper confusion will make its way inside.
If one can take an objective standpoint from the situation and address a broad view of the current experience there may appear a better choice for what the next best way to navigate is. However, there may be pieces of information that the card holder is entirely unaware of. This means there is more of the story to unfold before the right decision can even be clear. Whether one has all the pieces of information they need or not, it is important to pay attention to the current experience and to make a decision the best way possible. Although the moon is eclipsing the suns light, there is still light shining through which is indicating one can still make a decision to their capacity of understanding with the information present. With an open heart and pure intentions and motives there will not be a wrong step. If there are more pieces to the puzzle to be revealed, in time they will be and again you have the option to choose and navigate according to the new insight revealed. We are always learning and growing, being hard on oneself will only bring doubt into the being which delays the process of choice.
Sometimes there are times when we have come to a standstill in what to do and simply are not sure how to move. Instead of delaying and avoiding the next step, reach out to someone who can be trusted and objectively point out that which may not be obvious to you. Sometimes where there can be a stagnancy present, it is wise to seek counsel. As we are directly in the experience it can be very difficult to see an element that another can see clear as day. Family members are not the best at this time to ask for guidance unless they can truly be objective. Perhaps a loyal and trustworthy friend, a counselor, or a wise person that can look at the whole picture and tell you what they see. Maybe you don’t take what they say and run with it, but perhaps it can open a whole new world you haven’t seen. Within a very short time complete clarity can be recognized after a quick conversation with another. They see something clearly because they are not personally in the situation. Whether inspired by someone else or not, ultimately the decision must come from your heart.
Two of Swords invites us to not put any decisions off and not to avoid what must be looked at. Whatever aspect of ones life this may be, it needs your present moment attention. There will be a great burden released when we address what must be looked at more deeply.
Nothing can stand in the way of the Ace of Swords. The one who chooses this card is at full power and energy right now. The question is will the energy be used to benefit the greater good? It is up to the one who holds the sword to use it in the highest way. The work that must be done is beyond the individuals life and calls upon this being to step up for the whole of humanity. The white sword depicted is pure and true, reflecting a higher choice of how to use ones energy. There is a rainbow infinity sign wrapped around the sword symbolizing what must come through this being ripples out infinitely to all of existence. This is stepping into our roles that not only satisfies our personal life, but the divine work we came here to do. Our true work that we must wake up to within this lifetime. The lightning bolt that strikes on either side of the sword signifies a clarity that comes quickly and powerfully. One is seeing what their work is with a deeper understanding than before. But just as quick as lightning and clarity come they can also disappear. Whatever insight comes at this time can be written down to help absorb its power. This is not a time to to forget what one has realized, but to allow what has been seen to be absorbed to its fullness before it is forgotten.
As clarity comes, action is birthed. When one sees the direction that is right and true the limbo stages are over. There is no more waiting, there is no more uncertainty within the being. There is recognition that Yes, moving forward with this clarity is absolutely in alignment. This new understanding is so clear that the one who bears the sword is willing to overcome the double edge that is present. There are people who will be against and for the journey this one is living. There is an undeniable new understanding which has been brought forth about the next step one must take and it is crystal clear. The strength is also there to bear disagreement and opinions from others and to stand firm in the way you tread fully. When deeper understanding comes for a new direction, a goal, project, or vision, there is an energy that supports it fully because one is inline with all of existence. This will be undeniably obvious as one continues on the path, as this path will be fully supported. The movements one makes will not be because of material gains or status. The movements made will be pure spirit moving through the being to express the work of the divine. This support is much more powerful than those who put you down. Those who put you down will only strengthen what you know to be true in your heart and you will continue with Grace as there are a deeper depths to your movements besides what others may think or not think.
Ace of Swords asks to step fully into gifts, talents, abilities, and gather all tools and resources to continue on the journey the heart is uniquely designed to experience. There is no one foot in water and one on land. Full merging into the divine waters. This is a direct and immediate power that has no time to wait. Life is happening now and there is no more time to delay what must be birthed from ones being. We are asked to embrace our divinity and humanness to the fullest. To see fully what has wished to move through us is now either happening or going into hiding. It is up to the one who bears the sword with all or nothing energy. To run with the wolves or fall back into hiding. We have the free will to go either way. But what stops us from rising above the mundane? We are given our gifts for a reason. We must not let them die within us.
Six swords above the fox, one hidden underneath him. The Fox is known as the trickster. This is a time we are asked to pay extra attention where we may be deceiving ourselves, or someone close to us may be deceiving us. This can be something we may feel, but are not certain about. We are invited to draw on our resources of discernment and increase our awareness of a situation we are currently in. Paying attention to dreams can be very revealing at this time, showing us what we may not be able to see in our waking state. Seven of Swords calls for swift and immediate action on a situation. The power of this card is immediate and invites us to wake up, pay attention, and act now. Choices, friendships, relationships, work, and our individual paths are at the forefront of awareness. Is there a need for immediate change or action in any of these areas? Seven of Swords calls to bring out the seventh hidden sword from under the fox. What is being hidden in an area of life and how can we bring the truth of the situation to light?
There is a great deception in this card. Are these your actions or someones actions close to you? This is the first thing to discern. If the actions that are deceiving are upon yourself this is the time to acknowledge this and reflect on how this has been self inflicting pain upon oneself to change old ways. We have the opportunity to create a different world for ourself when we learn from our mistakes. The deception in this card can also indicate another in your life. Perhaps the actions of this person have gone unnoticed in many ways and they are now being seen by you more clearly. There is an effect with the choices that we make in life and that others close to us make. What is it about the current circumstance that does not align with your values? Whether it is you or another involved there is a choice and conversation that must be made. This situation one is experiencing must be communicated and looked at with complete honesty. This is not a time to run or turn away but bring out everything on the table, either for yourself or within another relationship. Honesty and Transparency will triumph here.
How have you affected others in your life and how would you like to continue effecting others? This is a time to look at the past and see how you have tread and think how you would like to continue walking your path. The people in your life, are they on board with you or is their value system different than yours? As we grow and learn in life most often relationships fall away that no longer match our values and what we hold as sacred in our heart. If we remain around those who are no longer in alignment then we are not placing honor on our sacred values. We are not living with integrity. Seven of Swords leaves us with big choices because they are life altering on our path. The question is what is not just serving our personal interest, but what feels most honorable and true on a universal scale? When we begin asking questions like this we are no longer thinking about only ourself but about our friends, family, and the world at large. We become an extension of humanity as a whole instead of individual ways of thinking that can be only self serving at times. We must learn from our mistakes and learn from others so we can always be moving forward in a more positive light. If we aren’t learning from what we do and what others do we will become stagnant and stay in one frame of thinking. This can be paralyzing on many levels. We are designed to keep learning, expanding, and growing.
Seven of Swords is as equally about your actions as it could be another relationship in your life. As you honor your path ask if you are being swayed in any way that does not align with your soul path. There are people in life with unconscious intention of how they tread in other peoples lives. As we learn and see our own unconscious patterns we become more aware of others as we have stepped out of our own charades. So the evidence of others manipulation or deception becomes more obvious. Many times these deceptive ways are unconscious in the one doing it, but if we see something. It is our responsibility to speak up and to use our voice. This is how we share with each other and extend the opportunity to learn. We cannot change someone but maybe we can communicate something they do not see. Whether they wish to recognize it or not is up to them. Seven of Wands asks us to be cautious at this time. If you are deceiving yourself and can recognize it, this makes much easier to see and change. If it is in fact a relationship you are in, this will can be more challenging to discern. Our gut instincts are not always correct, but many times are and this is one of those circumstances that it is valid to pay attention to your initial gut response. Also to contemplate the actions, communications, and experiences that have occurred during this time. Sometimes we know an answer already, we just haven’t acted upon the evidence that is already in front of us.
The invitation of the Seven of Swords is swift action. The time is now to pay attention. The statement…The easy road isn’t always the best road comes to mind. Sometimes we have to take the more difficult decision to continue on our journey. From a broader perspective it will serve a higher purpose. If there is not clarity how to navigate the current experience take time to meditate, take time to think and write, whatever helps you see more clearly to assess the current unfolding. Sometimes sharing with someone helps if they will not be biased to the situation and evaluate all sides of the situation. That is hard to find, but an outer perspective can always give a helpful perspective. Sometimes a person outside the experience can see obviousness in what we cannot.
