Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Two of Pentacles

download (5)

When pulled upright this card is about balance. It seems like right now money may be a bit tight but you’ve found a way to balance it out. However you are teetering the edge and one wrong financial decision could ruin that balance. This balance could also be about trying to keep two aspects of your life in balance. It could be anything, your job, school, money, health, love, etc. Regardless this card is saying there are two aspects that you are extremely concerned about. You need to step back from the situation and gain a better perspective. Multitasking seems likes the most efficient course of action but in reality it will just make the situation worse. Take the time to really focus on what it is you’re concerned about. When it comes to the subject of love this card is suggesting that you don’t have the time or energy needed to invest in your partner to make them happy. Your relationship with your partner should be at the top of your priority list but given the stress you’ve been in by keeping everything in balance they have been put to the side a bit. When it comes to your finances this card is saying you need to make sure you are completely aware of the state it is in. Take this time to really watch what you’re spending and secure a steady stream of income so you can make a good foundation for your future. And when it comes to your health this card is reminding you to do some self care. When you have a lot of responsibilities it is easy to stop considering your own needs and wants  but you need to try and find a balance.

When pulled in reverse this card is saying you have too many things you’re trying to do in your life right now. Give yourself a little responsibility free break to de-stress. When it comes to work getting this card in reverse can be a good sign. Try not to commit yourself to a lot of things as it will likely overwhelm you. When it comes to finances this card can suggest that you might be overspending. You really need to think about your income and where it is all being spent as overspending can cause issues in the future.

Here is a tarot spread to help you achieve balance in your life. First I would take the card out and meditate on it thinking about what aspect(s) of your life could use some more balance. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Five of Swords

e8451e082e5bb9f8379ca8d479b048bd

When pulled upright this card is about being in a conflict. It also could be about a disagreement with someone(s) which is creating a lot of tension in your relationship with them. It may appear that you’ve won right now but when you look at the big picture you may realize that you’ve actually lost because you have damaged your relationship with this person which has now isolated you. You may find that at the time you were more concerned with being right than understanding the other person’s point of view. Now you need to try and pick up the pieces and fix this relationship you’ve hurt. The conflict is still fresh so resentment hasn’t had time to fester. You need to decide what is most important to you, winning the argument or your relationship with said person. This card is also about a negative type of ambition. This is the kind of ambition that has no regard for others. It doesn’t care who it has to knock down to achieve it’s goal. This kind of ambition can leave you either a sore loser or a sore winner and nothing in between. This card reminds us to think about others and to let go of our egos.

When pulled in reverse this card is about wanting to forgive and forget the conflict that the five of swords in the upright position is referring to. This card shows that you have started to realize that winning isn’t always everything. Because of this you will be able to take all the energy you were investing in winning and put it towards something better. There is another interpretation of this card which is that the conflict you are experiencing is going to become more upsetting as you realize you all are going to lose.

Here is a tarot spread to help you organize your thoughts on a conflict you’re experiencing. First I would take the five of swords out of the deck and meditate on it while focusing on this conflict. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Two of Swords

e2811710b81c4f8e41089f821c3eafe0

When pulled upright this card is about a stalemate. There are two people, ideas, situations, what have you, that are clashing right now. Neither are getting anywhere due to this. When you started on your journey down the path that led you here you had not foreseen an issue such as this. You probably are finding that you’re caught right in the middle. If nothing or no one sorts this out this stalemate could continue indefinitely. You need to choose between one or the other, despite the fact that neither probably sound all that desirable. As soon as you make this decision though you will be able to progress on your journey. You may also find that this card is about balance and partnerships. It is reminding us that we need to keep our relationships balanced. Regardless of what type of relationship it is, business, platonic, romantic, etc you find yourself struggling to maintain them. If this a reading about work this card suggests you are stuck in limbo and seem to be waiting on the decisions of others. Remember to stay patient and don’t pressure this person into rushing their decision. This card could also be warning you to be cautious. You may find that you are trying to stay ignorant of the situation hoping that if you don’t acknowledge it it’ll go away. This card is reminding you to stop avoiding your problems as this will not fix them.

When pulled in reverse this card is about a much more intense stalemate. It is like 2 forces are battling each other. This could be an external battle or an internal one, but regardless you are being forced to be the tie breaker. You may find that neither party are easy to work with which may be making it hard for you to make your decision. Whenever you do make the decision it will be a decision between two bad outcomes. The important part is to just make the choice because you will be able to deal with what consequences it brings. 

Here is a spread to help you make your decision in your stalemate. First I would take out the two of swords and meditate on it while thinking about the 2 choices that you have before you. Then shuffle and pull using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Queen of Cups

Crystal Visions - Queen of Cups

When pulled upright this card is about a person who is compassionate, caring, sensitive, and nurturing. It can also be referring to someone who you are, or will be, connecting to on an emotional level. When you get this card it could be a suggestion for you to find and accept help from others. When you get this card it is most often referring to a female who will be entering into your life. This card also refers to a someone who is highly intuitive. The card also asks you to trust your inner voice. You should take the time to really focus on your emotional health before you try and tackle others issues. Self love is crucial to become more compassionate. This card can also be in reference to your relationships. You may be someone else’s rock and are what keeps them going. It could also be here to say you are here to teach others with your intuition rather than your logic. This card describes someone who thinks with their heart rather than their mind. It also describes someone who is not very rational nor has much common sense. They are more intuitive, dreamy, and psychic. If the logical approach isn’t working for you the queen of cups could be your answer.

When pulled in reverse this card is about someone who is not very in-tune with their emotions. You may feel restricted in how you can express the way you feel. You are likely prone to bottling up how you feel however this is not effective. It will be very damaging and you can expect to boil over and lashout. You may also have high levels of stress that you are unsure of how to cope with. On the other hand this card can be suggesting that you are letting your mind wander too far and your imagination is getting away from you. Despite that you mean well you should take a moment and think about whether or not you can trust your emotions as you are likely letting them control you. Really think about whether the dreams you have can be turned into a reality. You should try and stabilize your emotions so you know when your emotions are getting the best of you. 

Here is a tarot spread for those of you not sure what you’re feeling inside and what emotions aren’t worth your energy. First I would take the queen of cups out of the deck and meditate on it while really focusing on your feelings. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Knight of Cups

When pulled upright this card is about yourself or someone else who is very in-tune with their emotions and intuition. Not only that but he uses this in-tuneness for his own well-being and during his romances. This person the card is referring to may also be a very attractive person physically. When you get this card it can be telling you to listen to your heart even if it’s doesn’t make sense logically. Getting this card could also be telling you that someone who holds the qualities of the knight of cups is going to be entering into your life. He is also seen as a messenger. This could be an invitation, or the arrival of something or someone that is going to benefit you emotionally. He can also represent you doing a project that is going to have a lot of emotional or creative value.

When pulled in reverse this card can be about how you let your emotions control your life more than you really should. This could manifest itself in your being too jealous, moody, or emotional. You probably have a tendency to jump to conclusions and this could end effecting you so much that you are actually unable to take action. This should be avoided at all costs. This card could also be warning you that a situation that seems really appealing may not be as great as you think it is. When your expectations are this high you are bound to walk away disappointed.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Two of Cups

ff88fbf9c3b1285fe762e9272fe8e466

When pulled upright this card is about a relationship that was built on a good foundation. How you feel emotionally is very much dependent on the emotions of your partner. You two are a very strong pair. When you are doing a reading about work and you pull this card it means that people at work are going to be respecting you more, and you are going to be feeling more comfortable in your workplace. This card is also a good sign if you are looking for work. When it is about a relationship it talks about a strong commitment, a balanced relationship, and love. However, this does not mean that you don’t need to nurture this love to keep it going. If you are doing a financial reading then this card is about being financially capable and being about to financially support your obligations. If this is about health then this card suggests you need to find a health practitioner that you are comfortable working with and someone you can trust. If this is about your spirituality it can be saying to share your positive energy as the universe is giving you tons to go around. 

When pulled in reverse this card is saying your balance is broken. This imbalance is causing disconnect and conflict between you and your partner. Instead of attracting each other like when the card is upright, you are repelling each other. Small things that seemed fine before may now seem like problems which may indicate that one of you is holding resentment towards the other. The open communication you had before has been cut off which is making the situation you’re in worse. Be the first to open up and you might find out the issues you two are having may be easier to sort through than you thought. 

Here is an interesting spread for those of you with 2 decks to work with. This spread will give you an idea on how your relationship is going with your loved one. First I would take the two of cups out of the decks (if possible have each of you meditate on your own cards) thinking about how you feel your relationship is going. Then shuffle and pull using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Ace of Cups

So last week we finished off the wand cards and today we are going to move on to the cups. The cup cards are associated with water (whereas wands was with fire). These cards often relate back to emotions, the unconscious, creativity, intuition, and relationships (romantic or platonic).

87efaebd33ee64a9445e312df4f888de

When pulled upright this card is about getting rid of your emotional baggage and starting to live your life to the fullest. This card shows a new beginning. You might find that it brings the opportunity to form a new relationship (romantic or platonic). What you need to let go of may be emotional or spiritual. The presence of this card is there to encourage you to turn over a new leaf. It is important to open yourself up to these opportunities. 

When pulled in reverse this card is about how you’ve been going through a lot of emotional turmoil. This card represents a loss and it is possible that something that once brought you joy is no longer bringing you that same joy. This card could also mean you are having a creative block. It is important to think about what has caused this card to be reversed and how you can fix it.

Here is a tarot spread to embrace the new beginnings this card might be bringing you. First I would take out the ace of cups and mediate on it while thinking about possible new beginnings for yourself. Then shuffle and pull using your preferred method.

tumblr_p1jiqgud7l1v925roo1_1280

Position One:
What must I let go of to make room for the new?
This position provides you with something in your life that no longer serves your highest good or is no longer needed as you proceed forward.

Position Two:
How can I embrace this ending?
This position gives you insight on how you can learn to accept this particular closing chapter of your life, especially if there is some strong resistance.

Position Three:
What obstacles do I need to be aware of as I move forward on this next phase of my life?
This position provides you with insight on any obstacles you may face along the way.

Position Four:
What freedom will this new beginning provide me?
This position provides you with how this new path will liberate you during this new phase of your life.

11 Signs You’re an Earth Angel/Angel Incarnate

Hi everyone! Sorry about the little hiatus for the holidays. I was spending a lot of time with my friends and family. I hope you enjoyed the holidays and are excited for the new year. While I was seeing family I started talking to my dad about my brother, my half-sister, and I all potentially being starseeds and how I think he might be one too. However he told me about how he has had 3 different peoples on separate occasions refer to him as an earth angel or an angel incarnate. So we did a little research and this is what we found.

So, what is an earth angel/angel incarnate? First lets start with saying some sources say they are the same and some say they aren’t. I am going to be assuming they are the same. They are similar to starseeds in the sense that it is a person who’s soul originates from someone who is not human. These beings souls are that of an angel and they have reincarnated into a human form in order to complete their purpose here on earth. When reincarnated into a human form they have to forget their angelic origins. Living on earth is so different compared to how angels would normally live that in order to not be completely miserable they have to forget the way of life they’re used to. Picture knowing you can fly but not actually being able to. Below are some signs that you may be an earth angel/angel incarnate with some examples to how these signs show up in my dad.

#1 You’ve always been connected to nature, mythical creatures, and the meaning of life.

I obviously can’t vouch for how my dad felt about all these things as a child but since I’ve been alive he’s always enjoyed going out on nature walks and camping. Since he was a teenager at least he has always been interested in fantasy books and dungeons and dragons which all have to do with mythical creatures. As for whether or not he is interested in exploring the meaning of life, I would say he is. We talk about our purposes here and origin together often.

#2 You are interested in philosophy, alternative methods of healing, and the metaphysical.

We have not discussed it much because it goes over my head but my dad is quite interested in philosophy. He has taken quite a few classes in Reiki and uses it frequently, if not on a daily basis. As for the metaphysical, I think this topic I am writing about alone is considered metaphysical in itself.

#3 Relationships may be difficult due to being attracted to abusive partners or partners with deep-emotional issues.

My dad has been struggling with finding a long lasting relationship for a while. Every time he thinks things are going well they’ll break up because she’s going through some emotional baggage.

#4 You may often space out, have lucid dreams, vivid dreams, daydreams, or astral projections.

My dad has told me as a kid he would have lucid dreams every night and he could do whatever he wanted in them. If a dream became to overwhelming he could just tell himself to wake up. However, he has told me that as an adult he has stopped remembering his dreams when he wakes up.

#5 You have a hard time with communication so you do so through art, music, writing, and healing.

I don’t know about my dad’s art skills but I do know he enjoys and is great at singing and writing. And, as said above, he does a lot of reiki.

#6 You are not comfortable with your physical body especially your feet, due to being used to flying.

This one gives me a chuckle, because it’s so specific and relevant, as my dad has always had an issue with his feet.

#7 People tell you you look way younger than you are.

As a teenager people always thought my dad was my age. I think this was a mix of him looking young, due to being an earth angel, and me being more mature for my age, due to being a crystal child.

#8 You are in a job where you care for others in one way or another.

When I was a child my dad helped care for people with additional needs. For the last 10ish years my dad has been working as a CCA, which is someone who cares for the elderly, in long-term care facilities or in the clients home.

#9 They are often incarnated in a family that has some sort of dysfunctionality to it. That could be through addictions, mental illness, abuse, etc. They do this to bring light to the family.

Due to privacy I will not go into detail but I will say it is relevant for my dad.

#10 Although they do not keep their wings physically they keep them etherically.

When my dad was getting reiki done, the woman, who was doing the healing, said she saw angel wings coming from my dad. He has also had angels come in the rooms he was getting reiki done in before.

#11 You have a tendency to feel different and alienated from others

My dad has had a hard time making and keeping friendships which could be linked to this.

Something else that I have learned about earth angels/incarnated angels is that they tend to only live until they have completed their purpose. Many actually die as infants. However some do live to adulthood and settle down and have kids, if their purpose is to be done as an adult. Something I wondered is if his purpose was to bring 3 starseeds (each of a different type) together. Therefore he would have had my brother and I (an indigo and a crystal) and then divorced my mum. Then my mom would remarry and create a stable family for my sister the rainbow child who was attracted to our family due to there already being two other starseeds in the home. His purpose not being over could be explained by him still teaching and helping my brother and I (which would allow me to teach and help my half sister). Just a thought and I would love to hear you opinion about it in the comments along with any other thoughts or questions.
