For the new year, and to improve my tarot skills I will now be posting an Tarot meditation with my new deck from Stephanie Pui-mun Law. I seem to have desperate reading skills when it comes to the tarot so I will spend time with each card pulled each day, writing down my impressions and then stating how my day has gone later in the post and what affect the card had on me that day. So here goes…..
Card : Queen of Cups
Queen of Cups
Impressions: A woman stands on the surface of the Sea, on the backs of diving turtles. There is no Horizon line. Colors are varying blues and yellows. The art seems to suggest a practiced control of the depths of emotion. As the woman stands on top of diving turtles, sending them deeper into the sea, cups embedded in their shells she exudes a commanding,fluid movement. someone secure in their actions and guided by an open heart. an illuminating halo of light suggests a higher connection as well.
Book interpretation: “guided by instincts, she is attuned to that otherworld and finds joy in the communion of kindred spirits. For someone else who did possess a comprehension of her synchronicity, a misstep from her position would mean a plunge into unfathomable depths, but not so for the Queen. She dances on, embraced by the endless ocean and heavens. ”
Commentary: Lately I have feeling a very strong pull (maybe a yank even) towards a more meaningful daily practice, towards to spirit world/conjure work/meditation. Maybe it has something to do with the move to a new place with a lovely river not 10 steps from our back door and the feeling of being a little more free with less financial stresses. Or maybe I’m just finally growing up, becoming less afraid to walk as I am meant to.
I feel the shakiness of uncertainty quite often in regards to spiritual pursuits, but less intense than it once was. Finding my place in the dance maybe, finally having the guts to move to the music even if it isn’t practiced and pretty.
Message for the day: Listen to the steady, knowledgeable spirit inside me. Let my good heart guide. I Know what I am doing. I am good. Remember the dance.
Action for the day: Take time to really listen to what people are saying. They tell you for a reason.
Daily reflection: So I think this is where my issue with tarot is. I can’t really see it playing out in my life yet. Work was super busy and i didn’t get much time to think about anything. I came home and the husband was worn out and tired and we went to be early. Where the Queen of Cups comes into that I’m not sure but I keep on trying.
