Love love love is what it’s all about this week. The expression “My cup runneth over” is apt as the dove of peace brings the wafer of forgiveness to the waters of love running over the rim of the golden cup held by the hand of god appearing out of the clouds in a blue blue sky. The water sustains the lilies dotting the surface of the pool of blue water. To Buddhists the water lily is a symbol of enlightenment, purity, and divine birth. The beautiful bloom emerges from the mud. Peace love and mercy. The spirit of the holidays approaches.
A handsome knight on a white horse offers a golden chalice. Is it filled with a love potion? He is ready to cross the stream to your side where desert mountains loom large. He offers the comfort of heart flow, love and the trust of a good friend. Being that he wears red fish on his cloak we think he might be an artist, perhaps a musician or painter. And even if this is just a dream isn’t it nice to enjoy the prospect of love in your life?
Your creative juices are flowing and the seeds you have sown are ready for harvest. Drawing on the energy of the Empress who sits on her luxurious divan in the midst of a wheat field you trust in your nurturing and loving spirit that embraces the life-force found in everything. As you are in tune with your divinity and the positive energy of source within you can’t help but create in a positive flow. Honor nature, beauty and the impulse to create. This is the spirit of the times.
Isn’t she lovely this blonde goddess pouring water? She is the hope we long for, the inspiration that follows the long dark night. Eight stars including one golden magnificent bright light illuminate this peaceful scene of refreshment and solace.
Did you know we are all made of stardust? Therefore we all have the capacity to endure the troubles and find ourselves on the other side with grace and gratitude. This is a perfect place to be as we celebrate the upcoming holidays of light and rebirth with messages of hope and inspiration for all. Namaste.
What a delightful card for our upcoming Thanksgiving holiday here in the states. A happy family of husband and wife in a graceful embrace waving and dancing children look out to a verdant green landscape with blue stream running through it and a quaint cottage up on the hill. A radiant rainbow of ten golden cups arches up above shedding divine light on the entire scene. Whenever I see this card I am struck by the fact that the figures are faceless. In truth, the husband and wife face away from us. We have no idea to whom they are waving. This is the “everyman” family, the traditional picture of ultimate achievement in the suit of cups having to do with emotions, relationships, intuition, flow.
How does this picture resonate with you? Does it capture the comfort, security, and bliss at the top of your relationship scale? There are many different kinds of families. I knew a person who didn’t have a good relationship with her family and gave shelter and care to beings from the animal world. That was her family. The familial bond does not necessarily have to be by blood. It is fostered with love and caring. In the end we are one big family and the rainbow of golden cups shines on us all. Let us look to the good in each of us and expand the concept of family so the blessings of this holiday season travel gently on a path of love and light.
This week be prepared to be served up all kinds of choices–some good, some bad, some perplexing. What is that shrouded figure coming out of one of the golden cups? Is it a ghost? After all, Halloween is Wednesday! You are cautioned to weigh each option carefully and meditate on the illusory aspect of desire. Seven is the number of assessment and knowledge. Cups are love and relationships. Don’t get carried away by your idealistic nature. Dig a little deeper for the truth. Remember…”all that glitters is not gold.”
