Love & the Cups ~ from "The Ultimate Tarot Guide for Your Personal Tarot Journey"

[An Excerpt]…from “The Ultimate Tarot Guide for Your Personal Tarot Journey”:

Ace/Cups ~ With the ace of cups you hold in your hand all of the visions, dreams, and love you will experience in this lifetime… every relationship that touches your existence, every dream-scape that you travel in your sleep, every vision you experience through Spirit spills from the ace of cups. You swim within this realm enveloped by the magic of it all. The real dilemma of this ace comes in managing all of the images, emotions, and depth that you experience with feeling, really FEELING, life.
With the ace of cups, you will learn the importance of filters and boundaries.
Reversed:
Beware. There is the danger of being entangled in fantasy, deluged with paranoia and narcissism, caught in the web of self-deceit.
Be prepared to sort out reality from delusion.
My Personal Connection:
The Ace of Cups has been my biggest challenge in life (me, the Libra, forever connecting in partnerships), forever pursuing love and a fairy tale ending, not anticipating what each encounter would bring to me, what I would learn from it, what I would suffer for it, what I would take away from it. The Libra in me has not been content unless I was one of a pair, from the time I was 15 years old. There has only been three years in my 20s and going on three years in my 60s that I have been a single entity. And I realize now, looking back in reflection, that these single years have been the largest periods of growth and development for me.
This beautiful cup full of promises and love, commitment and passion, had to throw the water it contains in my face to wake me up, in order for me to see and recognize destructive patterns in my life, in order for me to break these patterns. Does this mean that the belief in fairy tale endings has been washed away? The idea of love and passion that never dies? The idea of soul mates and magical connections? No, of course not, but it’s the realization that those things must be chosen carefully, that you can’t take such big steps at face value and wish for the best outcome. It’s also made me realize that if those things are not for me, or not for me at particular periods of life, that’s okay too.
It’s taken a lifetime, but I’m finally at peace with the Ace of Cups.

A Desert Reading ~ 4 of Swords


4/swords (R) ~ Some of us need to try harder. It’s so easy to become complacent when we’ve either tried and failed too often, or been brain-washed to believe that we can’t succeed in the first place.

A Desert Reading ~ One Card for Today

10/swords ~

I'm not feeling the sense of "burdens" that this card is usually connected with.  There's more of a feeling about everyone being on the same page for some major transition, project, or job.  It's going to be important for some of you to have co-workers, a spouse, friends, or family all looking in the same direction, all working towards the same goal.  You will at least need their support and positive energy, as negativity or a lack of support will only make your task more difficult.

For those of you who find yourself at the threshold of something new, a decision to make, or a new transition coming up, make sure that you have your ducks in a row, that you have the necessary information you need to accomplish what you're setting out to do.  Some of you may also want to look around and see where the stumbling blocks lay and get rid of them; whether they are individuals, or circumstances, or personal weakness.

A Desert Reading ~ Cards for Today

Six/wands (reversed)

There's a feeling like you're just not quite there... almost successful, almost reaching out and being able to touch a goal; but your success (or your idea of success) doesn't quite match up to your reality, or your expectations. Some of you are being particularly hard on yourself, placing the bar too high, unrealistically high. Some of you are actually quite successful, but you're being fed negativity by those around you who may be jealous, spiteful, or just cruel and critical. Eliminate these people from your life, and if that's not possible, then minimize the contact you have with them.

King/pentacles (reversed)

Some of you have lost control of your own life, control of yourself, control of the decisions that you're making. Some of you may feel that you're racing through life without a game plan. Some of you may feel uprooted, or suspended and stagnant, or vulnerable. There's the idea that a few of you may not be looking in the right direction for exactly what it is that will satisfy your needs. Which way do you have to go to honor your inner voice? What choices do you need to make to gain control of your life? (Some of these choices may be difficult, even painful, but the end result will be worth the effort.)

Four/wands (reversed)

Your foundation is not solid. Find the weak spots, rebuild from the ground up, start over, start again, re-do, repeat; and keep this up until you feel that your life is on firm footing and anything you build, plan, or start from this point will be sturdy, strong, durable, long lasting... and successful.

The Great Migration

Some of you may have noticed that this spring, and this year in fact, has seen me very quiet on my websites and blog.  I even temporarily took down services and merchandise during this time at The Witch's Corner and The Tarot Parlour with very good reason.  My beloved life partner Bob and I sold our houses in Nebraska and moved to Arizona.  This undertaking involved weeks of working with realtors; cleaning out two houses of belongings; finding resolutions to an issue standing in the way; coordinating the sale and closing dates for two houses in two different cities/counties, as well as the purchase of a new house at the other end of the country; and dealing with all of life's normal daily activities and issues along the way.

This was the biggest most exciting adventure of my life.  It was physically and emotionally exhausting, sometimes frustrating, often scary and overwhelming.  It involved two flights to Arizona, house hunting, and decisions that had to be made quickly and logically for everything to fall into place and magickal timing to manifest realities.

It worked.

In the end we had three houses in three different cities and two states that wound up with the closing dates for all three On The Same Day.  We literally packed a U-Haul, left Nebraska, and drove directly to our new house!  It was incredible, and the coincidence (or synchronicity) was not lost on the realtors involved (fantastic ladies!)
