Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Ten of Cups

1d1b0e7e1b2b05b9655d78979492865b

When pulled upright this card is a continuation of the good feelings from the nine of cups. This card is all about joy, happiness, contentment, and emotional satisfaction in the people you surround yourself with. This state you’re in is so ideal that you feel that you are in paradise. All of your wishes, needs, and wants have been fulfilled. Take this time to breath and be thankful for all that you have. This card shows us true emotional fulfillment. When you learned to love yourself the nine of cups became the ten of cups. This card is often thought to be connected to the phrase “happily ever after”. This card also talks about having a harmonious family. You are living in absolute peace. If this is a love reading this card shows that this is the real deal and could very well be something long-term. This card could also be suggesting you should take a family vacation so you can really just spend quality times with your loved ones.

When pulled in reverse this card is about how the connections and harmony within your family are being broken. This idealized image of the perfect family you had is either broken or wasn’t realistic from the get go. Rather than connecting and coming together you may find that you are becoming more distant and pulling apart. The happy moments that you were hoping for don’t seem to have met your expectations. Treat each other well and love each other too. This is the best way to achieve the harmonious living that you desire. 

It would seem that the 10 of cups upright is the kind of life most of us aim to live. I thought, for those of us not quite there, a good step to getting there would be to learn to love ourselves a little more. Here is a tarot spread to help with your self love. First I would take out the 10 of cups and meditate on it while thinking about all the reasons you are worthy of your own love. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

11 Signs You’re a Rainbow Child

Blessed Samhain! This week we are going to go back to looking at the different types of starseeds. Today we will talk about the last one of the main three. So far we have talked about indigo children and crystal children. This week we are talking about rainbow children. So if you have read my other posts about starseeds, you’ll know I think my brother is an Indigo child and I think I am a crystal child. I also think my sister is a rainbow child. So as I tell you the signs of a rainbow child I will tell you how I think my sister fits each description and essentially use her as an example.

So what is a rainbow child? Rainbow children are here to help heal the earth and bring back balance between earth and humans. Rainbow children have very high vibrations and will create almost a web that surrounds the earth. Rainbow children are also considered light workers. Unlike indigos and crystals who have to do certain actions to achieve their goals here on earth, rainbows simply need to exist to do their work. Below are 11 signs you could be a rainbow child.

#1 A rainbow child is usually born to a crystal parent

While this may be true, I think the situation might be a bit different in our home. I think instead of being born to a crystal parent she was born into the home of a crystal. I am 7 years older than my sister and was a huge part of how she was raised. I think that was an equal substitute in our situation.

#2 Rainbows are typically born into stable homes

I actually learned that indigos usually chose dysfunctional families. This all makes a crazy amount of sense for my family. My brother was born a year before my parents divorced and my sister wasn’t born until my mother remarried and has been with this man ever since.

#3 They are usually psychic or very intuitive

My sister says she often has dreams and that whatever happens in them often manifests itself in real life.

#4 They are hyperactive or have high energy. You may see them running, hopping, skipping, or jumping everywhere they go

This is very true for my sister. She has such high energy, that as a crystal child who is very introverted, that it is very very overwhelming sometimes. She is always running around the house and being silly.

#5 They are passionate, creative, and enthusiastic

My sister is a brilliant artist. She also loves to sing. And when she finds something she is interested in she is passionate and enthusiastic about it for a long time. She was really interested in oracle/tarot a little while ago. She is obsessed with crystals.

#6 You will never feel judged by a rainbow child

My sister is the most open-minded and kindest person I know. I can tell her anything and she has never judged me or told me she thinks something is dumb or silly. She embraces everything and is just excited that I am happy.

#7 They are not competitive

This is one thing that doesn’t align with my sister. She is one of the most competitive people I know. However she is competitive not because she has a high ego or wants others to be less good then here. Instead she uses competition to motivate her. Competition makes helps make her the best her there is.

#8 They are strong-willed

This ties in to her competitiveness. She knows what she wants and what she needs and she will do anything to get those things. If she knows she can be better at basketball she will be determined and keep working until she does it.

#9 They were born around the 2000’s

This is accurate as well as my sister was born in 2005.

#10 They recover quickly from negative emotions

I have rarely seen my sister in a bad mood. Unless our brother is being annoying she is very good at jumping out of bad moods. She is usually happy whenever I talk to her.

#11 The typically have balanced male and female energies

I can’t really vouch for this one with her because this is something only she can feel. However this is thought to be why there are more gender neutral people these days. My sister though does have a pretty balanced interest in “girly” things and “tomboy” things.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Four of Wands

bd00ecaaef0404ece2bf07acee775c8c

When pulled upright this card is about celebration. It is also about a happy home environment. The number 4 is a sign of stability. This card also says that is is now a good time to get closer with your family and friends. This card could be about a time in the holiday’s when you’re surrounded by your loved ones. On the other hand if you’ve been working on a goal or a project a big milestone is coming up. You are going to want to celebrate this and you are more than justified to do so.

When pulled in reverse this card is about there being a lack of stability or happiness in your home environment. There is probably a lot of tension between you and your loved ones. Maybe you have accomplished something and expect your loved ones to want to celebrate with you. Instead you come home to a complete lack of support. This is likely causing you to feel uncertain about your relationships and is making you wonder who you can really count on.

Below is a spread to help you celebrate your accomplishments. First I would take out the four of wands and meditate with it. While you meditate think of your accomplishments and all the reasons you have to celebrate. Then shuffle the cards and pull them as you see fit.

11 Signs you may be a Crystal Child

Today we are going to continue to talk about the different types of starseeds. Last week we talked about Indigo children and today we are going to talk about Crystal children. If you want to know more about starseeds in general click here. If you want to know about Indigo children click here.

What is a Crystal child? They are a group of people who started coming to this world around the 90’s. The Indigo children tore apart the institution and now the crystal children are help building back up. They show us that humanity is evolving. They are role models that are not ruled by their ego but rather by their higher self. I believe I may be a crystal so with each sign I give below I will leave an example of how I see it in myself.

#1 They are creative

This can be through art, writing, music, dance, etc. Personally I have been dancing since I could walk and singing for the same amount of time. As a child I was very gifted with the fiddle (although I’ve lost that talent as I stopped playing).

#2 They are natural healers

I have always had a knack for healing others emotions and have always been the one to help family when sick. I also am now trained in reiki healing as well.

#3 They are fascinated by crystals

I absolutely love them. Rose Quartz is my favourite and it what I am most connected to. I also have lots of black tourmaline, clear quartz, amethyst, and citrine. I hope to have a lot more someday.

#4 They love nature, animals, plants, trees, etc

My favourite place to be is in the forest. I love laying underneath a tree and just quietly observe everything around me. I love gardening. I even talk to my plants to help them grow. I am obsessed with animals and feel like I can never have enough animal companions in my home.

#5 They are empathetic

I personally believe I am an empath. I have always been very in tune to others emotions and find I take them on myself. Being in public can be very overwhelming due to feeling all these emotions.

#6 They have an intense stare and large penetrating eyes

My eyes are known to be piercing. They are a very unique icy blue that I’ve only seen a few people who are in my family also have. I always get comments about how piercing they are and as a kid I was often told they were “freaky” by the other kids.

#7 Uncomfortable in large crowds or loud places

Being in large crowds makes me very anxious. This is also due to being an empath. It is very overwhelming and so much to take in. It is often too much for me and results in me needing to spend a lot of time alone afterwards.

#8 They need very nurturing and loving environments to thrive.

My parents are divorced and growing up they had 2 very different styles of parenting. My mother was well intentioned but overly strict. She made it feel like I lived in a prison. My father on the other hand was a lot more on the nurturing side and more about gaining privileges rather than losing them. I thrived a lot more at my father’s and overall was a lot happier.

#9 Their parents are often Indigos

This one I am still trying to figure out if it is true or not. See my brother and I are full blood related and my sister is half blood related through our mom. I feel like all of us are starseeds. That would make my mom an indigo. I however am not sure if she is though. That is something I am still discovering. I can however see my dad being an Indigo. That wouldn’t explain my sister though. Unless instead of being born due to my mother being an indigo she was born into a family that just already had starseeds.

#10  Wise beyond their years

Growing up (especially in my pre-teens/early teens) adults always thought I was older than I really way. I was always told I seemed wiser and more mature than those my age. Maybe it had to do with being a crystal all along.

#11 Non-verbal

This is one that does not apply to me. That is normal since everyone is different, and not all symptoms or signs are the same for everyone when it comes to anything in life. However it is common that crystal children don’t start speaking until their toddler years. Sometimes they are even diagnosed with ASD (autism spectrum disorder). The reason for their lack of speech is because they can communicate telepathically and therefore don’t feel the need to speak to get their points across.

Thanks for reading! Are you a crystal? Let me know in the comments along with any other thoughts or questions you may have. Also, make sure you check out my post about empaths to enter the giveaway.

Weekly Tarot Spread: Balancing and Clearing the Root Chakra

Hello everyone. Sorry for the late post but I did explain the situation on my twitter account, so if you want to keep up to date on posts make sure to follow me there.

This last weekend I earned my level 1 and 2 Holy Fire Reiki Practitioner certificate so I thought it would be fun for the next seven weeks to do readings on how to take care of each of our chakras. As one always should I am starting from the top and making my way up.

The spread I did

I think this spread is super interested because some of the cards I very intuitively knew. I find a lot of the time I go by the book and find the key ideas and use my intuition to feel how it applies but for a few of these cards I could just look at the cards and knew what it was about. Also I think the fact that I have my reiki now really influenced the answers I got from this spread.

35050942_1719113424843946_7287474656997539840_n
The cards I pulled

As soon as I pulled these cards I could just feel this was a very powerful and meaningful reading for me.

Card to represent my root chakra: Death

So normally this card strikes fear into those that see it but personally this card always makes me feel excited. This card rather about a physical death often represents the end of one path and the start of a new one. I feel this card is strongly connected to the fact that I can now do reiki on myself. It says that my root chakra is going to start a major change/transition (now that I know how to heal with reiki). That the old me needs to die and it’s time for me to be awakened.

My current sense of security: Nine of Swords

So as we know swords talks of a mental or communication issue. Nines are about humanitarianism, universal compassion, and tolerance for the differences in others. So for me I think this says I take security in my compassion, values, and morals. I feel secure in the way I treat others. I’m most secure in my mind where I decide my morals and values.

How to feel grounded: Three of Swords

I feel like in this card it talks about communication issues. I would feel more grounded if I felt with my heard less and more with my soul. I feel my emotions without listening to the earth. If I communicate better with the earth and my soul I would feel a lot more grounded.

Good way to balance this chakra: The Lovers

So firstly as we learned last week, this card if my signifier (the card in the deck that represents me). This to me says it is the most important card to read. It also in the middle of all the cards which to me says that firstly balancing my root chakra is key to how the rest of the cards play out. It also says that since this card is close to all of the cards rather than just some that this entire spread is really important and will likely form how the rest of my chakras align as well. The lovers card is about harmony and unity. SO in order to balance my root chakra I need to find this harmony. I think feeling at home anywhere my partner and I are together is important too.

Result of balancing this chakra: Page of Cups Reversed

This card when reversed means a block in creativity. It also talks of a lack of inspiration, low self-worth, and being easily depressed. So to me this is saying when my root chakra gets balanced all this will be fixed.

I hope you found this interesting! If you think I missed anything, have any thoughts or questions make sure to leave them in the comments. Also be sure to subscribe to me on the website and on twitter so you get notifications when I post. Until next time, Merry Meet and Blessed Be.

Tarot Series~Major Arcana Card 6: The Lovers

35f7bc3a7f292e0998be194b3b592392

When pulled upright this card is about harmony, attractiveness, and perfection in a relationship. This relationship can be romantic, physical, friendship, family, whatever. It is commonly thought of to be about a romantic relationship. It’s about trust and unity which gives the lovers strength and confidence; this empowers them. On the other hand it can be about a choice. A choice between two things that are opposites and are mutually exclusive. This card can also be about your spiritual path and committing to it despite it being unorthodox. You are figuring out what you’re going to stand for and what your philosophy in life really is. 

When pulled in reverse his card is about inner/outer/both conflicts that you are dealing with. You are experiencing disharmony that is putting pressure on you and likely your relationships. You need to figure out what you are punishing yourself for and why. You also need to figure out if your beliefs and philosophies align with what you want for yourself. Another interpretation is your communication needs worked on. This lack of communication is likely causing breaks in the foundation of your relationship with a loved one. Lastly this card could mean you are not taking responsibility for your actions. You may have made a decision in the past without thinking about the long term and you are now blaming others for the consequences your decision brought. You need to either let go of the past or make amends and learn from this experience. 

Here is a spread that focuses on The Lovers. First I would take The Lovers out of the deck and meditate with it thinking of love and what you want to know about it. Then I would shuffle the cards and pull them using the method you think is best. 

loversspread.jpg

Card 1: This card represents your love of yourself, self-love and self-image, representing strengths and weaknesses, or issues to get through.

Card 2: This card represents your love for others, your family, friends, lovers. Can represent a specific person and how you react to him or her, or how you see others, or a relationship.

Card 3: This card represents another factor or person, something not accounted for, because these situations are never simple! Can be a love triangle, or a difficult choice.

Card 4: This card represents strange Fate, or larger currents and directions, situations out of your control. Also represents the love the Universe holds for you, and your trust (or lack of faith) in that.

Cards 1, 2 and 4 are forms of love you will always have and that are not dependent on others: your love for yourself, your love for others, and the love the Universe has for you.
