Cards # 1
Gentleness | 3 of Cups
Have you read that article about plants and music? Or seen those photos of speaking into frozen water and the shapes that took place from the tone and words expressed? The plants thrived with classical or high vibrational music, and died or didn’t grow as strong from negative or hateful music. The same with the water, beautiful snowflake-like shapes formed with words like, “I love you,” and disoriented or jagged shapes formed from words such as, “I hate you.”
With that said, both studies promote the same theory – we grow, thrive, and are at our most beautiful with love, and we are at our lowest, darkest, and most ugly when we are at a much lower vibration.
Your healing journey is much the same. Those who have been abused, or are so used to negativity, often become a product of that because they are not able to see the beauty within. You have to speak to yourself as if you were speaking to your one, true love. You have to look into the mirror and see the sparkle in your eyes, and build up what makes you feel uniquely beautiful, rather than putting yourself down for the many flaws you point out.
We also thrive stronger with a loving and supportive environment. When we look within and celebrate our inner-beauty, then others around us will follow suit. Rather than focusing on being damaged, focus on healing and working on yourself, and others will reflect back to you, what you project from within.
Be gentle with yourself, and be gentle with others. Be soft, be kind, and celebrate the beautiful.
Cards # 2
Reflection | Knight of Cups
These two cards I feel in a sense say the same message as the ones before. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What you see in others, is but a reflection of what is within you. As you see magic in others, know that is magic which is within you as well. As you see rejection, or neglect within the romantic scale, it may also be a reflection from within, as an unresolved wound or unwillingness to dive deeper inside yourself.
Also, these cards dig pretty deep when asking a very important question: What does True Love mean to you? This goes with the relationship within yourself, and also with others in your life. Regardless if you are single, or happily married, this question is vital because the main goal for everyone in life is Love.
The Knight of Cups is a card favored by many because it speaks of love coming to you. However, when you take a deeper look into Tarot, you will see that while the Knight seeks out love, they are often too immature to commit or have not met themselves deep enough to share the intimacy that is required for the love they seek. The Reflection card magnifies this issue, or quest, and says that the answer lies within. We have to meet ourselves deeper if we wish to push our romantic, or intimate life onto a higher level. These cards say: your lover, spouse, or romantic interest is reflecting the wounds which are unresolved within you. Address the issues or blockages of your relationship, or loneliness, within in order to see things change in your environment.
Cards # 3
Enchantment | Knight of Swords
Everyone loves a rude awakening… right? Right… These cards come together to remove the lens that was fogging up your perspective when it comes to issues which you have felt blocked on. You can see things a bit clearer, but perhaps it did not come about in the most pleasant circumstances.
I feel that these cards speak of both a sacrifice, or a challenge, and also a rude awakening that follows which isn’t the most pleasant. However, this is also liberating if you approach this situation with a higher perspective on the bigger picture, than just what is in front of you.
The Knight of Swords is often something that occurs rather sudden, without notice or warning and often knocks you off your balance. This can be someone challenging you with their opinions, or attacking you verbally about something else which triggers a very defensive response from you. You can act out on your frustrations, but it won’t do anything but make the situation worse.
However, it is also not wise to completely abandon ship, retreat, or to submit. You have to stand your ground and remain where you are, but adopt a higher perspective about things – such as widening your path, or adding different, alternative routes. Whatever the case, you are still going down the same beautiful direction you have planned, but you are gifted a wider perspective and useful tools to do so – that is after you handle this test appropriately. Just because something isn’t as you thought it was, doesn’t mean its all a loss.
This is also a time to focus on grounding, rather than being too caught up in the stars and the possibilities of what the future can bring. Be realistic and set a concrete plan that has more structure than “what could be’s”.
