My Tarot Pick for November: Ace of Cups by Gerd Ziegler

ace 

The Ace of Cups is one of my favorite tarot cards. And why not, its essence is about love, personal as well as universal,  being in a happy flow and (unconditionally) magnetic to good. Things and issues just effortlessly flow together. May we all enjoy ease, grace, magic and synchronicity as the universe is always voting for our happiness, wellness and fulfillment.

Ace of Cups: Gerd Ziegler – Mirror of the Soul, Handbook for the Alisteir Crowley Tarot

Key Words: Overflowing love; emotional clarity, deep love of the self; giving and receiving.

The white lotus is the symbol for love of a giving nature. It forms the base of the cups, which is blue, color of the element Water. Vertically through the cup flows a brilliant energy beam, uniting Earth and Cosmos. The cup is the medium which makes itself available for the coming together of the above and below, inner and outer. The Ace of Cups is the feminine counterpart to the Ace of Wands; open, receptive, surrendering; bearing the transformatory power of giving love. The upper and lower portions of the painting embody the same quality, below in the emotional realm of water, above in the ethereal sphere of the spirit. As above, so below. That which is internally felt expresses itself externally clearly and openly. Emotional clarity results, emphasized in the painting by its balance and harmony.

The giving of love happens effortlessly. That which continually flows into us from the boundless abundance of the universe radiates outward again by itself, if we remain open and receptive. You can compare it with the flower which exudes its fragrance whether someone comes close to enjoy its perfume or not. This giving is not dependent on individual, perhaps close people. There is so much to share! All of existence can take part in it. Becoming one with the all-embracing, omnipresent love is such a silent ecstasy, a cosmic orgasm!

Indication: You are in contact with all-embracing love. It fills you and you can pass it on generously, lavishly, to others!

Question: What is your way of expressing love?

Suggestion: Let the card work on you for a while. Read the last two
paragraphs of the description again, and close your eyes. Feel yourself
as an open channel for the divine energy.

Affirmation: All-encompassing love fills me and my environment.”

Monthly Symbol, September 2015: The Magician, and The Dove

RWS_Tarot_01_Magician

The Magician is about clear communications, both common and psychic, and manifesting the path of the heart with the higher use of will. It refers to both practical magic and new opportunities that may rise like out of the blue. It is about Divine timing, synchronicity and expanding the idea of what is possible as we are transcending the limitations of the old world by the higher consciousness and the new energies.

Playfulness and humor are natural inner essences of The Magician.

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.
