Weekly Tarot Card – The Moon

The Moon

The Moon Card is all about the reveal. It is nighttime and the full moon is reflected in the light of the sun which sheds it’s rays on the wildlife below. A dog and wolf bark at the moon. A crayfish emerges from the waters.

What is to be revealed? Our civil and wild natures as seen in the dog and wolf respectively seek recognition and understanding. It’s as if they are barking, “See me, hear me, feel me” to the golden silvery light above. The crayfish whose thick shell serves as protection from the elements decides to leave its watery home to walk the perilous path on land. It takes courage to face the unknown but the time is right.

Are we to follow suit and face our fears and illusions? Do we have the courage to look into our shadow self, our defenses, whatever is hidden deep within our subconscious. Let what needs to be revealed rise to the surface. Pay attention to dreams and the keys they hold, the messages from our meditations. Seek integration of light and dark as the moon and sun is reflected in our true nature.

Weekly Tarot Card – Temperance

For a good life, it’s all about finding the right mixture. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, add some here, take away some there. The angel pours water from one cup to another. We see this as a repetitive action as she blends all the elements within the flow. With one foot in the water and one on the stones she shows us that the path to a good life is made with a combination of intuition and grounding. An illuminated crown waits for us as we align with the elements of this journey.
This week let us temper our behaviors to forge the middle path and allow a bit of heaven to enter this earthly plane.

Weekly Tarot Card – Ace of Cups Reversed

IMG_3375Even though the image in this card is upside down (reversed) the meaning still abides. Water flows from a stream dotted with beautiful lillies into a golden chalice held by a heavenly hand appearing out of the clouds in a blue sky. The flowing water encourages us to connect to our intuition, our feeling sensibilities and to align with our emotional core. The heart opens and we are connected. All of us. Together. The dove of peace flies upwards.

Weekly Tarot Card – Five of Cups

IMG_3364This week’s message has to do with perspective. We are in the suit of cups which signify the emotional realm, feelings, intuition, sensitivities, the movements of the heart. What captures our eyes is the large figure clad in black and blue robe, his face hidden as he gazes downward in the depths of dolor. Three large golden cups have fallen over spilling a red (blood) and green (life force) substance. ┬áHe has refused their succor. So steeped in his doldrums is the man that he does not see the two upright golden cups behind him. Nor is he aware of the blue river (stream of consciousness) which separates him from the bridge which would bring him to the castle on the hill. His landscape is barren while the landscape around the castle is verdant with grass and trees. His emotions have overwhelmed the situation. If we persist in wallowing in sadness and emotions of loss, we will close ourselves off from the path to happiness. We need to lift up our gaze out of the morass and see what’s around and ahead. A change in perspective is what’s needed.

Weekly Tarot Card – Queen of Cups Reversed

IMG_0520 2The Queen of Cups is attuned to the intuition and emotions. She gazes meditatively at a beautiful golden cup with angel arms which she holds in her hands. Her feet tiptoe into the waters surrounding her throne which is adorned with water nymphs. This queen rules and is ruled by the heart and her compassion knows no bounds. In its reversed position, we feel the emphasis is on self-care. Perhaps this is the time to nurture your own emotional health before others, soothing over any harshness coming from self-criticism or disappointment.
