This month’s photo shows the cards positioned on one of our fig trees (it was a challenge to keep them standing that way!). This is one of the two large fig trees that we have, which are getting full of fruits that will be ripe later this summer. Curiosity: there were another two (smaller) fig trees that we unfortunately had to dig out – root and everything: one was growing in front of the entrance – almost inside – of our cave/temple (of which we talked about in the previous post http://blog.sanctuaryofjoy.org/2017/05/08/we-welcome-all-faiths/ ) and the other one was growing inside one of the ex-stables (yes, inside – since there was no flooring at all!), which is now our son’s room.
The Tarot deck we used in this setting is the Druidcraft Tarot by Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm, illustrated by Will Worthington.We used this deck earlier in our February reading ( http://blog.sanctuaryofjoy.org/2017/02/01/tarot-card-reading-february-2017/ )
For the beginning of the month we pulled the ‘Two of Pentacles‘. There is sense of lots to do with this card, juggling the few available resources. And yet the mood looks playful and centered: even when outside a storm is raging, by tapping into our abilities we can get everything done. While the juggler looks relaxed on the outside, anyhow, she maintains great focus – all hands are on deck. This is therefore not the time to take risks, but to stay focused and use wisely the few resources available.The energy of two brings a sense of duality: the storm raging outside, the focused playfulness inside; learning to tap into our loving qualities while the world is screaming, and managing to balance active and passive, masculine and feminine, yin and yang forces within ourselves. Doing this requires strong will power and determination.
For the central part of the month we pulled a Major Arcana: ‘The Magician‘. Maybe this represents the result of the previous period and effort but, either way, this card says that it is time to do some magic and manifest some results, to realize your potential. You have immense power that flows within yourself – when you let yourself be open to inspiration. All you need to do is to maintain your focus and control your own power so that it doesn’t randomly create what you don’t want. Let go of worries and doubts (including self-doubt) and allow your creative energy to shine, listening to your soul’s call. Manifesting what you want is not a product of brute force; it’s more of an exercise in aligning your thoughts and vibration to the outcome you would like, and flow with the Universe to co-create it.
The card we drew for the last part of the month is the ‘Five of Swords‘. This card is traditionally associated ‘moving on’ after a harsh period and learning from your mistakes. This does not necessarily have to be seen as a defeat; it’s more like recollecting our energies at the end of a phase and getting onto our next one. Possibly the end of the school year has something to do with this, given the time period – whether you are a student or a parent, this will change your rhythm during summer and might require some adjustment to schedules and routines. Or maybe it’s the kick off of a new phase for the whole world altogether: it feels like the second part of this year will be energetically much different than its first part. Remember to shine on and not give in to fear!
