The cards this week are from the Mystic Faerie Tarot by Barbara Moore and artist Linda Ravenscroft.
The first card is the Ten of Cups:
You can see the look of peace and happiness on the faces of the faeries on this card. If you find yourself feeling similar, be sure to be thankful for it. If you aren’t yet in this position, understand that a life of peace and contentment takes effort on the part of those seeking it. Many of us sometimes feel as though there are some people to whom this just comes and feel resentful, envious, or self pity. While it does just happen on very rare occasions, most often it comes as a result of work and careful tending on the part of the one to whom it comes.
The second card is Judgement:
This card is a signal that the time has come to closely look at our lives and consider our direction. It lets us know that there is something that we should be doing which would be very different than what we are doing currently. Whatever it is would not only make a difference in our own lives, but in that of the world around us. This is an opportunity for great spiritual growth. While the name of this card is Judgement, it isn’t to be taken as a message that you aren’t good enough. It is an invitation to let the ego drop a bit and truly listen for the guidance which is being lovingly given to you.
The third card is The Empress:
You may find yourself receiving an answer that you’ve been seeking, and it may not exactly be the one you were hoping for. At first, the answer may seem to be almost impossible or perhaps damaging. Sometimes the truth doesn’t have an initial feel of ease, but it is always for our highest good. The image on this card shows an abundant scene which is full of nurturing, mother energy. Remember that part of the wisdom of the love of a mother is knowing just how much to accept or give. Sometimes it is possible to give to the detriment of the one we seek to help, including ourselves. At other times, it is possible that we accept things or do things which we know in our hearts that we shouldn’t. This can be tricky ground, because while it is important to be kind and loving-there is a difference between loving and enabling, avoiding what we know to be true, or in the worst instances allowing abuse. This is a wonderful card which reminds us that practicing love with wisdom is the best way to go, even when it may not be the most easy. It opens the way to a life which allows us to drop illusions and move into one with more genuine ease.
This week should see the confusion of last week leaving. The energy of this week will be positive, especially in the big picture. I am seeing these cards coming together as a combination of a gentle view into the reality of our lives, and guidance to help us to do what needs to be done to live our most content and peaceful life. It could be very uncomfortable for some of us to move back from our egos. This is what must be done in order to see the truth and know what actions we should take. When we do this, we attain a life that fosters real love and harmony in our lives. This reading seems perfect to me as we enter Spring because it truly is an opportunity for new beginnings. For those who are paying attention to the various energies under discussion in spiritual circles, the time really has come for us to take action in moving in what we know to be the right direction individually and collectively.
Remember one thing as you go about this week. No matter what choices are made and which actions are taken, it will have an impact. While it may cause a reaction in others, it might not be the one you had wished for. This doesn’t mean that you have done something wrong (only you know the truth here), it just means that perhaps things weren’t as you had thought or wished them to be. When you move forward in love, even when it is the type of love which isn’t easy to practice, you can’t go wrong.
Wishing you a week filled with courage and blessings ❤
