I apologize for the delay of this weeks Tarot Card. I usually pull the card on Sunday evening and then write about it. Instead of blogging I was out celebrating my birthday with a fabulous group of babes! One of the areas of my life that is filled with abundance is my friends. I have amazing friends and I love them all so much. Not too shabby indeedy!!!!!
Without further ado….here are the cards for the week.
This week I pulled from Doreen Virtues Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards.
Two cards came flying out as I shuffled: Aphrodite and Mother Mary
Inner Goddess: "Awaken the goddess within you through dance, self care, and appreciating your divinity."
Message From Aphrodite: "Allow your inner feminine wisdom and dynamic beauty to rise to the surface. Cherish its power and meaningfulness. No mater whether your physical body is male or female, you have an inner femininity that nurtures you, and guides you with its intuitive principles. Now is the time to become aware of, take excellent care of, and celebrate your magnificence!"
Various Meanings of This Card: Balance your male energy with more female energy * Take steps to heal your sexuality * Enjoy being feminine * Dance more often * Be receptive * In relationships, allow your softer side to come forward * Don’t hide your femininity (dress in a more feminine way, for example).
About Aphrodite (pronounced Af-roh-DY-tee): Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of passion and love, who’s associated with the planet Venus. Aphrodite’s name means "foam born," as legend says that she sprang from her father Uranus’s castrated genitals, which were cast into the ocean. Thus, Aphrodite represents unabashed female sexual energy. Aphrodite helps women feel comfortable with their bodies and sexuality. She helps both genders to experience more passion in their relationships, and to become more balanced as far as individual male-female energy is concerned.
And now for the second card….
Expect a Miracle: Have faith that your prayers have been heard and are being answered."
Message From Mother Mary: "Faith is the light that illuminates your pathway. Without faith, the future looks very frightening. That’s why it’s essential for you to take whatever steps are necessary to keep your mind and heart filled with faith. Please don’t give up hope on yourself or other people. Keep the candle of faith burning within your soul, as the one small inkling of hope can eradicate the darkness of despair. Be the light that eliminates someone else’s gloomy hopelessness as well. For as you make others stronger, it strengthens not only yourself but the entire world."
Various Meanings of This Card: Let go of worrisome thoughts * Keep your thoughts positive * Notice and follow and Divine guidance you may receive * Pray * Engage in spiritual healing.
About Mother Mary: She’s the beloved mother of Christ who’s known as the "queen of the angels" for her ongoing and miraculous healing work. Mary works closely with anyone who is a child advocate, teacher, or healer. She loves children, and is devoted to making the world a safe and happy place for them. If you’d like to help children, ask Mother Mary for a Divine assignment.
This reminds me of some of the inner conflicts that I have felt, and sometimes still feel, and conflicts that I know others experience. These conflicts were very strong when I had small children. After a day of school, barf and diapers…I could not connect with my inner passion. I just felt sucked dry. I was definitely connected with the "doing for others" side of life….but my own inner goddess world was tucked away.
Connecting with my inner goddess was like:
"Are you f*cking kidding me? I just want to go to sleep!"
"Wear something beautiful and feminine? Are you kidding me? Everything I own has barf on it!"
"Nurture myself? Maybe after I get the boys fed, bathed, changed, fed again…oh, changed again…ugh…bathed again…fed again…crap, gotta do laundry…now I need to write my term paper…"
What is interesting to me about how these two cards work together is that when folks disconnect from a passionate life, a life filled with personal expression and beauty….there is sometimes a disconnection with faith. There is a feeling of internal chaos…and an inability to connect with inner light and/or to connect with the light in others.
Lives are very busy. Work, kids, houses to keep up with, bills to pay, people to take care of, on and on….sometimes this intensity of our lives "busy-ness" leads some to feel hopeless and disconnected with passion.
So, dear readers…I invite you to sit quiet for a moment and listen to the wisdom these two goddesses have to share with you personally. These cards are for you! If your thoughts wander towards other people; "Oh man, my friend really needs to hear this!" or whatever…bring your thoughts back to yourself. YOURSELF!!!! YOU!!!!!
What does Aphrodite want to say to you?
Does she have words of wisdom that might expand your connection to more passion?
Is there something that you could do, right now, that would bring a deeper connection of beauty into your life?
What does Mother Mary want to say to you?
Does she have some words of wisdom that might connect you more fully to faith…to the knowing that all is well?
Is there something that you could do, right now, that might tune you in more deeply with your own inner Divine guidance?
Would love to hear from you:)
Have a fabulous day!
