//Three of Cups is a time for play, enjoyment, and absolute celebration. Three of Cups embodies dance, celebration, eating yummy food, and gathering with those we love. Three of Cups comes at a time where rest is needed before reengaging focus and direction towards a project, work, creation, school, travel, or a completely new direction. A solid foundation has formed and intuition and actions have united in positive direction. Energy is in alignment with being, merging the heavens and earth. The invitation is to melt into enjoyment and spontaneous fun. When we allow periods of rest and play this will feed the fresh energy needed to continue the work, moving solidly forward. If feelings of doubt aries that vision may be lost because of taking a break ~ see all the energy already invested and nourished thus far! The foundation is already there and the momentum is already moving in the correct direction. Think of taking a temporary rest or break from a goal as an energy investment for the long term future visions and goals. It will add more power to the work and empower ones energy//
//Three of Cups invites us to look at what kind of people we are surrounded by. Are we inspired and led in a positive direction by those around us? Are we supported through highs and lows by the people we choose to befriend? Do they inspire healthy habits or negative ones? Do they support dreams and aspirations, or put them down? Three of Cups says investigate and look at the friends around us. Are we comfortable with friends simply because they have been in our life for years? Are we scared to make new connections that may stretch comfort of what is known? Every detail of our life is constantly shapeshifting, molding, and forming our existence. When we have standards of the quality of people we choose to surround ourself with we are aligning with the highest within ourself. How do our friends reflect aspects of ourself that we want to change and how do they reflect aspects of ourself that empower strengths? Our friends are mirroring many layers of our own being. The attraction magnetizes people together for discovery, growth, and expansion. If a relationship is not pushing any boundaries, the inquiry here is to ask what is being overlooked that is causing this relationship to stay stagnant? Are there some relationships that can be let go of in order for new energies to move in? Or do conversations need to be opened for clear communication to move through? A solid and true friend will be willing to open the doors to expand on what is asking for clarity. Three of Cups asks us to align with those who are healthy for us, who push us in a positive direction, who support dreams and aspirations, who offer support through light and dark phases of life, and who honors what one deeply values in life because it is the same within them. Three of Cups invites us to let go of those who no longer align and allow new forces to come in that raise us in a higher ways//
//There is a giving and receiving of energy that is fulfilling and authentic with Three of Cups. Aspects of being are flowing in unexpected ways. Through communication and everyday movements there is a maturing unfolding within and opening in new ways that allow many aspects of who one is to be more expressive than ever before. This is assisting in relating with many different people from all walks of life. Opportunities will be presenting themselves at this time, doors will be opening and interactions will be on the rise. One is either making their own way right now, or, there will be people reaching out in your line of work to collaborate with you. Intuition is wide awake now and can be trusted to continue your work alone or with others at this time. You are confident to know if it is right for you or not. Three of Cups says enjoy this period of expansion and play, allowing it to move you in fresh, spontaneous, and magical ways//

Grace radiates the Ace of Cups. Nourishment on all levels of being are expressed fully in the present moment. One is radiating contentment and ease with life that is permeating through ones field in juicy and creative abundance. Filled with the spirit of love and not an ounce of conflict with what is. All that is arising in relationships, work, creative endeavors, health, and all areas of life are naturally flowing. This is giving tremendous space within to play in life. Originating from a space that feels clear and open. Full allowance of the divine play is fully present. One is moving with full trust in themselves and life and seeing/feeling all is Grace unfolding of ones existence.
Ace of Cups is the sweet nectar of life that is is pouring itself into you and you are giving birth to what you are seeing/experiencing. One is full of the pure energy of existence, a child’s essence with a mature depth and unending appreciation through experience of being. The one who has pulled this card has recognized their inherent freedom and the freedom of others and all of life that is present. When one pulls this card there is no wanting life to be manipulated in any way. There only remains a deep awe of all experiences and unfolding that have allowed one to be exactly as they are. When any subtle manipulation leaves the being there is an immense freedom which extends to all of life. This pure and untainted love moves in all areas of ones life, with a deep relaxation that allows creative freedom to abundantly flow in every aspect of being. This is not something one can try to do, but comes from life naturally stripping away what is not true. This frees up ones entire energetic field to dance in the same frequency as source energy without draining this natural energy we are all interconnected with. As one is in their natural state all things are birthed with this love and raw power.
This is a time where immense creativity is pouring through. Allow and let it be, whatever form it takes. Allow the natural play of what comes through to come through. Completely and wholly without judgment or fear. Whatever springs forth at this time is what is most sincere from ones being and will be a gift not only for oneself but for those who cross your path. The essence of what wishes to come through now is coming from not what you think you “should” do, but what simply has been dormant until now. Presently, enough space has been felt within your being to fully allow it to be birthed. The invitation is to say yes…and to trust your own voice and intuitive body when it comes to allowing this creation or movement to come alive.
Love is the essence of this card. A love untainted, it is pure and unconditional. As one is experiencing this within, naturally you will be attracting this same love within your relationships. One will be meeting or have already met a pure reflection of what is held inside the heart. Allow this love whether it be friendship or lover to expand reaching into the depths of your being. This love, when we are open, will expose dark spaces within us that are waiting to be seen. We don’t always know what is hidden within our being and often when we meet in love with another being we become mirrors for what is hidden to be seen and acknowledged. This is something that can be celebrated instead of hidden. This will only create more space for deeper love to be experienced within oneself, within relationship, and all of life. Although painful at times to go through it is only life breaking us open to discover more beauty and love within our being. The invitation is to allow the love to guide you even when the places you may go can be dark and sorrowful. Life is only reminding you to feel fully and embrace the totality of you and not only one spectrum of your being. The love that is experienced to such an incomprehensible degree with the Ace of Cups is because you have allowed the totality of you…to be. We aren’t here to only dance with the light, but to discover even greater depth within our challenging experiences. As we say yes to all that comes we are telling life we trust fully to all that is here.
The white bird spans his wings of light above the darkness. Below him, bats are coming towards his light from the depths of the black abyss. The bird has no judgement for the darkness, he only invites the darkness to come towards the light. This bird embraces all who come from the darkness and the light.
Somethings magical occurs when we surrender judgement of ourselves. As we surrender our harsh judgements towards ourselves, judgements towards others also vanish. This leaves a great space within the being. There is a lightness that cannot be matched by anything else. It is the lightness of spirit that is felt because there is no longer empowerment of judgement towards self or “others.” When the judgement card is pulled the invitation is to ask, “Am I being to hard on myself? Am I being too hard on others? How does this make me feel?” There are times when we think being critical or judgmental towards others is helpful, but sometimes this assists in disempowering our brothers and sisters. The question that is invited is what is more true? Is it the darkness that you may see in someone else or the divinity of them that is the essence of their being? When we focus on the divinity in ourselves instead of criticizing the darkness, it is the divinity that is given space to expand instead of empowering all the problems. The more we tell someone that we believe in them, how much we love and trust them the more we see them bloom, expand, and embrace their beauty. Can we do this for ourselves and others? To allow divinity to dance instead of watching it wither away? Can we notice in ourselves when judgement arises? Are we putting ourselves and other beings down instead of lifting up? We can cultivate healthy judgement by focusing on the good in ourselves and in others. Not to ignore the dark aspects of creation, but to recognize the beauty that is here and see the darkness present is also assisting our expansion. To focus on getting “rid” of the darkness will empower it to rise. As we empower strengths in ourselves and others we will see how quickly a true confidence emerges. A confidence that is not “Oh look at me” but more like “Yes, I can be myself fully.”
As we investigate more deeply to see where our judgement comes from what can we find? This judgement is coming with a rejection of what is present. Trying to change or manipulate a situation instead of seeing the inherent lessons in all that is arising. If we see every problem that arises as an opportunity for growth and greater understanding, harsh judgement of self and others will drop away. Opportunity will be seen clear as day where once there was conflict and frustration. Before we go pointing the finger at someone, it’s a good idea to look in the mirror. Find out if what is being judged is actually about the other, or, is it about you? Many times we will find the conflict is coming from our own perspective and the irritation that is felt is a natural alarm system to check in with our way of seeing. We can ask is what I’m seeing truly a defect of another or are they simply mirroring a way that I am viewing myself? Everyone is free to be as they are. As we condemn others in their freedom, we condemn ourself.
The Judgement card can come when you are seeing clearly how your actions, words, thoughts, feelings, vibration, and all that you are is constantly determining and shifting the quality of your life. Perhaps at this time a veil has been lifted that you had no idea was present. You are seeing all of life in a very new and fresh way. This could be a time where self judgement has dissolved in a major way and you are seeing the inherent beauty in yourself and all of life. This can cause for your reality to change in very dramatic ways….and very quickly. The veil that has been lifted has put you in complete alignment with your purpose, your passions, your visions, and all is flowing in the most natural way. This happens as perception aligns with your heart and you fall into the arms of the unknown. All of this is happening through Grace. This is not something that one can force to happen. Life will unveil the mysteries as we trust and allow ourselves to be available. This is the majesty and the beauty of the divine unfolding. As we trust, life strips us naked of our false illusions and judgement. We begin to see with the eyes of pure spirit.
A Lioness, with a rose gently held in her mouth. On her forehead rests an infinity symbol. A peaceful energy exudes from her presence. This card reminds us to draw on our inner strength that can navigate us through the darkest waters and turn them clear. Our true strength is tested when we are faced with challenges inside ourselves, and with others present in our life. The Strength Card is the embodiment of an unwavering power that can move through all obstacles with patience and calmness that soothes the most ferocious waters. This card represents the human spirit overcoming all obstacles when drawing on this strength we all have within us. As one pulls this card there is a deep maturity that has occurred withins ones life in order for this subtle, yet tremendous power to be present. This strength is not always visible to others and doesn’t need to be. It is a quiet current with immense power underlying its purpose & movement.
The Strength Card is a reminder to allow compassion to move one through the obstacles that arise. This is not a time to be forceful with situations unfolding. There are times where we must take deep breaths and take our time before opening the doors of a situation that is occurring in our life. It is wise to dive in when one is drawing from their inner strength with a compassionate heart to discuss a sensitive matter. When we move from this space it is possible to move mountains. Whereas if we move from an overly emotional state we can actually cause more pain to a situation instead of meeting it in a constructive, open, loving, & compassionate way. True strength can be holding space for ourselves or a loved one when going through deep hardship. Strength can be speaking the words that are in our heart as mindfully as we can without lashing out at another. Strength is navigating in ways that are least destructive and most sincere and honest. We can create a safe and loving environment for ourself and for others where trust can grow, allowing that which needs attention to come to the surface.
The Lioness has been learning through experience on her journey that her strength is deeply present when she doesn’t feed the negative emotions that arise. She has learned that she has a choice of what she can feed in her life, not only mentally, but on every aspect of her being. Physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, she sees how connected each aspect of her being is and how true strength is discovered when she allows all of these aspects of herself to be fed daily. The Lioness is not waiting for anything to happen to her. She sees she has all the tools she needs within and she moves from this space of fullness. This allows her to be free from victimhood. Her strength is in herself and nothing outside of her.
The Strength Card can come during a time where one can be feeling in complete harmony with all of life and persevering through obstacles with great ease. The strength card can also come at a time when you are in the midst of a conflict with yourself or perhaps someone around you is in conflict. This is a time to draw on your internal resources that have deepened in maturity over time. It is a time to take responsibility for yourself and what you are seeing occur in your life. If it is another person going through something this calls for an unwavering patience that creates trust and support between you both. Ultimately, we can only show up for ourselves and others within the the capacity and depth we have reached within ourselves. Life will always be pushing this threshold to expand us into further understanding and depth. We can go so far to reach out to another, but they must be open and willing to meet us for true change to occur. However, we are all unique and learn different lessons at different times. Nothing can be forced. We cannot force each other to learn or see. These things can only take place by individual experience and an openness to discover something more deeply. The Strength card requires a delicate balance within oneself and ones environment to move in a way that empowers life to bloom and uses strength wisely out of compassion and sincere love.

Mother of Wands is a card of tremendous, creative energy that is equally dancing with a firm earth energy. This is assisting an original balance on a current venture. She is strong and grounded with a clear point in focus. The Mother of Wands depicts a snake curled around her eggs and a wand. Her wand is the power within that is creating and bringing visions to life. The eggs are the form that her visions have grown into. They are not ready to hatch yet, but the exciting time is not far away. She is nurturing her creativity everyday and this force she is moving with is unstoppable. She is putting her unique flavor into her work and seeing as she nurtures her gifts and natural passions they are continually growing and deepening. She can see how Grace is moving in her life and this force moves her from sun up ’til sun down. Her energy is bright and firey, all forces are with her to continue the work she knows must come through. The energy that is emitting from her has a high momentum but also extremely grounded and solid, a unique vibration that will continue throughout her endeavor. There is a perfect balance present that is working in harmony to keep her moving consistently in the right direction.
The Mother of Wands has a high magnetism that stems from her healthy and active life. She does not doubt how she moves in life at this time and each next step seems to be moving like water. She inspires others to walk the way they feel inspired to as well. Mother of Wands knows that each path is different and each one is to be honored in its own unfolding. This is a time where life is moving in accordance with grace, or rather she sees grace has always been present. She sees only grace could be moving in her life to appear in all the magical ways it does. Mother of Wands immerses herself in visions that require her fullness, she cannot halfway be involved in something.

She is too in love with life to allow stagnant energies to show up. Her force is in her creative and steady power that have joined together, this will open many doors of opportunity as she keeps her focus on her work daily.
Mother of Wands is a reminder to protect what you hold dear in your heart. Are you living as the Mother of Wands? Strong in your creativity and blazing a unique and authentic trail? Or, are you stifling your creativity and allowing something lesser to be in place of what you actually feel to do? If we truly want to live a magical and abundant life we must put our energy in the direction of that which is deeply fulfilling. Sometimes it is our hobbies that we think are just hobbies, but secretly they wish to burst forth from our being and become a bigger part of our life. Are we protecting our visions? This means are we giving them time each day to bloom? We can only see what we love grow if we place our attention there. Surely you have even 15 minutes a day to place your attention on what is valuable to your heart. Do you know what focused 15 minutes a day can do? It can grow into all day of doing what you love. Life creates a vacuum where you open the door. Let the Mother of Wands ignite the fire in you that is blazing a miraculous trail for your life. There is a mighty power in you. Don’t miss it for something lesser. When we allow ourselves to move naturally in this life we see that grace is moving all the pieces, but we must allow ourselves to trust in life and watch how grace takes over. In fact grace has always been here yet we choose not to see it by siding with that which makes us fearful. grace is moving all the pieces.
The Hanged Man depicts a bat hanging from a branch. He wrapped himself within his wings and peers directly at the card reader with red, gleaming eyes….uhhh kinda creepy right? Something mysterious…a secret perhaps? Something is being held within, being protected instead of let go. Bats swooping into our lives indicate death of egocentric aspects of self, major transitions, sensitivity to seeing the unseen, and releasing major burdens that have been carried for ages. The bat hangs in the dark, however, this darkness fades into the light. As we move beyond limitation and darkness we expand into the greatness we already are. Our light was simply covered up by imagined illusion.
The Hanged Man can represent your own suspension in life. What are you “hanging” onto that is in the dark? What aspects of you are being perceived now that are ready to be let go of and take flight? This is how the bat flies, he must let go of the branch in order to gain momentum and fly. He cannot fly from pushing off the ground. This card might be about your darkness or perhaps someone close to you carrying a burden. The extremely heightened sensitivity a bat carries is the same as your own highly sensitive nature. You are sensitive within yourself and all of life because of your natural introspective nature. You feel life with invisible feelers, so a little whacky to some, but very normal for you. Whether or not this darkness is yours or someone close to you it is something that needs to be brought to the surface. This is an ancient wound that is present and this is a pivitol moment for change. You may either ignore and let it fester, providing a swamp-like and unenergized environment….or this old burden can be faced. Because of your sensitivity, if this imbalance is in you it will be released during this period. You can smell the putrid air of this and it must go. If this is regarding another being in your life, your sensitivity will be a catalyst assisting this damaging force to exit the body. Sometimes it can be our extreme sensitivity and seeing the unseen which gives permission to others to face what has been put off. The more aspects of darkness we have faced in ourselves the greater space we become to hold space as others go through hardship. It is a fire within that burns all delusion because it is seen as illusory. You see the most subtle darkness or hesitations within yourself, which in turn helps you see this in others and gives space for life to reveal the light that is already present.
Do not protect your fears or those of anyone else. When we protect our fears we are giving them more fuel to survive. This is a dishonest way to live with oneself and highly self destructive. However, there will always be times when we don’t realize we are protecting something that is harming us. Thankfully, the bat is the symbol of a highly intuitive and wise one. So at this time you do have the full capacity to see all you need in order to shed some old skin. All is happening organically and in the natural unfolding of life. Life is always showing us what we need to see when we remain open to the mystery. We don’t know what will be, but when we remain open…the magic is swiftly and organically a guiding light. She shows us and we move in accordance with the natural flow. The magic is hardwired in our system. In our blood, our tears, our joy….its in everything. The magic flows organically when we remain open to the unknown.
The hanged man tells us to go into the night. To feel the night air and the secrets that seem to be hidden in the quiet times of the night. Look at the moon, gaze at the stars. How do you feel when you do this? Does it change your perspective? Do you feel a Oneness with all that is? The Hanged man asks you to shift your perspective and ask where are you putting your energy? Ask yourself this sincerely. In all aspects of your life, where are you planting seeds? Is it at a job you hate? Or is it on a creative endeavor you love? Are you spending time with friends that ignite your fire? Or are you spending time with those who doubt your every move? Do not be afraid to distance yourself from the doubters and the nay sayers. Our life shifts radically when we allow those who support and love us to be in our sphere and when we simply leave those who don’t.
May our perception be clear and bright. May all seeming difficulties turn into mighty opportunities of growth. May all beings express their creativity and light in this world.
