Gentle Vibes – My Tarot Card for July

thoth4CupsIt is always a pleasure to me to pick The Four of Cups – Magnetite (Lodestone) because of its tender, gentle nature. It is about giving and receiving love and affection and kind gestures not only in romantic sense, but also relating to family, friends and acquaintances and even strangers. It is a compassionate, emotionally nurturing card and very magnetic to good. It is about ease and grace. On the other side of the coin, if not being aware of it, we (or others relating to us) may become overly protective, pampering, dependent or overly indulgent. We might do things we don´t really want to, because of the fear of rejection. It may also remind us to be open to receive and that we are deserving beings.

Cups are ruled by the element of Water. They reflect our inner emotional reality. Their realm includes love, feelings, interaction in relationships, and sexual energy (the Yin, or feminine aspect).

Keywords of Four of Cups, Luxury: Moon in Cancer, love, tenderness, care, emotional riches. Gerd Ziegler, Tarot – Mirror of the Soul

Magnetite – Lodestone

“Magnetite balances the intellect with inner emotions to bring about stability. This is an excellent stone for balancing polarities such as male-female; physical-spiritual; left brain-right brain, and many more. Magnetite aligns the chakras and connects the base and earth chakras to the nurturing energies of the earth. Additional properties include:

Aids telepathy, meditation, visualization
Strengthens trust in your own intuitions
The magnetic quality of magnetite attracts love, commitment and loyalty
Offers relief from negative emotions” – source: crystal-cure.com

The Sanskrit word for magnetite is chum-baka, meaning the “kisser”. T’su shi is what the Chinese call it and means the “loving stone”. These names are based on its ability to attract other metals. For this reason, it has often been used as a love charm.  –  Richard Webster,  Magical Symbols of Love & Romance

Affirmation:  I enjoy my relationships with gratitude and joy. I am in the flow of love. I am magnetic to good.

Thought for the Day: Trialitation

ID-100162686

 

“There are positive and negative energies within a field of duality. You are moving from the field of duality into a field of triality, where you will not have the polarity of good and bad, right and wrong, up and down, or love and fear. You will have more options to work with, and you are starting now to see from a much larger perspective. The way to think of it is very simple. Consider a line, polarity, with negative over here and positive over there. As triality comes in you will have a new connection to your higher self, or basically a third point from which you can see everything more clearly. If you were really on this line you could not distinguish where this ends or another begins, because you could only feel the line. Once the perception changes and you strongly connect to your higher self, you experience a different vision. That is now taking place with all of humanity, not only spiritual people. Everyone is learning to see from a new perspective outside of the limitations of duality, and we have labeled that trialitation.” –   © Steve Rother and the group / lightworker.com

My Relationship with Tarots and My Tarot Card for June

GEM78_5My Relationship with Tarots

Like so many others in this field of inner growth, I too have introduced myself with many different inspiring tools for self transformation, affirmation and inspiration. The tarots were not that obvious element to me at first.

Many, many years ago I received a wonderful tarot deck of Crystals & Gemstones (still my favorite one) as a gift from a friend. I loved the beautiful cards, but was not using them for a long time. Although I was aware of the phenomena of synchronicity, I had linked the tarots with superstition and old belief systems.

One day I finally began to play with them a bit, and soon I noticed that I repeatedly picked the same cards or the cards with similar kind of matching energy for the same questions. I also realized that with the ring finger of my left hand I could sense which card to pick (I already before this could sense the energies and the blocks of energy of human bodies with my hands when doing energy healing). I fetched books which had an updated view of tarot meanings, and began to blend my intuition and other knowledge and life skills with them. I found the books Tarot: Mirror of the Soul and Tarot Mirror of Your Relationships by Gerd Ziegler matching the closest in their communication style and with my own views of inner growth and life.

When I did readings to others when asked to (this was not my main job, and I don´t give individual session these days), I transmitted energy at the same time and assisted them via the tarots to connect with and trust their own intuition, inner self and soul as the main sources of wisdom. The main focus was on life skills, self knowledge, and on how to build and allow a happier, more satisfying life, and so on, rather than on predicting the future. The shorter the time period the more stable a future prediction can be, for it is already pretty much shaped by our past actions, beliefs, thinking… Even then we can always shift our perception of things (if needed), and we can also adjust our choosing. The future being fluid we can influence on it. So, on the longer run the predictions can alter in major ways. I think, that the best clairvoyants see the most possible one of the alternate futures, when predicting. That probable future can change on the longer run for instance because of our intentions, different choosing and/or inner growth. We have chosen certain things, growth paths and themes, and so on, before we have incarnated though, but even then there is space for free choosing of a plan C, F, B, ….

Playing with the tarots can also enhance one´s sense of magic in life. I noticed this to be so with others as well when doing these readings.

My Tarot Card for June: Queen of Coins  – Agate

In these days I use tarot for myself for affirming, for focusing/concentrating on certain issues and for keeping the skill alive. I also use to pick a tarot for each month from my own deck and often I play a bit with certain online oracles as well.

For June I have picked the Queen of Coins – Agate. The four Queens of the tarot have usually taken a long inner journey, and have arrived at the oasis: a more understanding, conscious and easier phase in their growth and in life in general (or in the area in question). The Queen Of Coins in short is about material and physical wellbeing, success, practicality, taking care of one´s own wellbeing, too, while being a trustworthy support to others. Perhaps taking a vacation (inner and/or outer). It is also about beautifying life, inner, and outer.

From Tarot Mirror of the Soul by Gerd Siegler:

Key words: the watery aspect of Earth, fruitfulness, physical nourishment; overcoming the barren past.

Affirmation: I give my body the gift of loving attention, it gives me the gift of life energy, joy in living and health.
