Three of Cups

My thoughts-  There are three people holding up three cups. They seem to be toasting something. I have always found it slightly unsettling that I cant really see the third persons face. They are each crossing the other’s arms with theirs. If you got an aerial view you would see a triangle.

The Book- This card represents those moments or feelings of general goodwill, contentment, and the sense that everything is okay with the world… even if only for that moment. It is usually a shared experience, resulting from the synergy of the group, but it can be felt along, when happiness fills the heart for no apparent reason.

The Universal Waite Card- features abundance and simple pleasures, with its pumpkin and grapes. It looks like a feast or a party. The three women with their unlifted cups represent the social aspect and mutual affection. Fun frivolity, and overflowing happiness abound.

Core Meaning-  A spontaneous, unexpected joy or pleasure.

Oh My Wow moment/reading

Okay, I’m just learning to read, as you know if you regularly check my blog/follow it and get updates. Here is a little back story of me. I’m 23, recently got married, am happy, and want to start a family with my amazing husband. Back story over. I often read for myself and my family because I don’t have an abundance of friends and family who want me to read for them. So I have wanted to start a family and was reading up on how to phrase questions to get better answers and to take control of my life and not make it sound like I am leaving it up to fate.

Question- I would really like to start a family with my husband. How can I change and/or better prepare myself for this wonderful blessing to come into my life?

Answer- 7 of Cups – (LWB) Precious gifts are offered to you all the time, but you may not fully appreciate them. Take stock of what you already have before you seek more. So, basically, be happy with what I have right now. It will happen eventually. Duh, Becka!

Fair Lights Tarot (Getting to know the new deck)

Omgosh, the pictures in this deck are so pretty. The contrast of light and dark cards are just amazing in this deck.

How I ask questions and get set up- I start by taking three deep breathes, in through my nose, out through my mouth. I take the deck out of the box and begin to shuffle. I pick up the deck with my right hand and drop them into my left hand, so that they don’t get bent by shuffling. I ask the question as I am shuffling and the card that falls out is the one that I’m supposed to read. I feel like it is the deck throwing the card in my face.

 

Questions

 

1. What kind of deck are you?

10 of Swords- The path you are considering is to fraught with challenges. Accept defeat and find another solution. Well this is awkward ( it was a birthday present and not something I would have normally picked for myself). Is he (the deck) saying that I need to give up on him or that he is the other solution.

2. What card sums up your personality?

King of Swords- One who may seem stern and forbidding but whose judgement is always fair and whose authority benefits his community. Hmm, not quite sure what to think of this card most of the kings actually kinda scare me in this deck.

3. In what issues do you specialize?

9 of wands- Working with others will allow you to accomplish much more than you would on your own but at some sacrifice to your autonomy and control.  I came to the realization the other day, I don’t always work well with others, its not that we don’t get along is just that I don’t like having someone telling me that I’m wrong just because its not how they would do it.

4. How can you best help me?

Queen of Swords- One who shares the brilliant clarity of her mind but protects her heart with a certain reserve and caution. I am usually someone who guards their heart, that was, until I met my husband, since then it has been all out there in the open. Maybe I should start to do that again.

5. What quality is best in a reader?

King of Wands- One who inspires loyalty through his fair-mindedness and his willingness to adapt to the changing times. So, someone who is flexible, not totally set in their ways.

6. How do you see our relationship?

5 of wands- Your wild nature longs for release. Honor your instincts and trust their guidance. My wild nature… hmmm. I know I can be a little crazy sometimes but wild… 

Photo dump August 30th 0277. What card do you want to show me?

8 of Disks- Get ready for your future by throwing away regrets, blame and disappointment. Surround yourself with positive expectations. I’m excited for my future. I don’t know what it holds but it is probably somewhere I haven’t been before.

8. (I normally just do seven questions but with this deck I decided to try an eight, to just see its point of view.) How do you see me?

4 of Wands- Pay attention to your ethical choices, do not take credit for someone elses achievements or try to pass off their work as your own.  So, it sees me as a credit stealer… how nice for me. hmmm.

I personally feel that this is a deck of action. All the swords and the wands!

 

 

 

 

Birthday Presents

Okay, so no one wanted my free readings, and that is okay. But I got some tarot decks and books for my birthday!!!! I’m now 23 and have four decks and two coming in the mail! I haven’t interviewed my newest deck yet but I will. I’ve been uber tired lately and I don’t know why, it might be because the seasons are changing in Alaska and we are starting to get less sun, who knows. I’ve been working like crazy and still studying, Ill post some more up when I get a chance.

 

Love, Peace, and Happiness to everyone.

Tarot Reversals… What and Why

Tarot Reversals… What and Why.

As I’m learning I am faced with this problem. I am someone who likes to learn from books, or at least read a lot of them. I recently got a book all about reversed cards, and then I got one that said not to read reversed cards. I myself have chosen to read reversed cards but am only learning the upright meanings first. Yes it may take longer, but I think it is easier to learn one way at a time. This is an interesting blog post to read as well.

Two of Cups

download (2)My thoughts- I honestly don’t have many thoughts about this card. I see the medical symbol (I think) connected to a red lion’s head with wings. In the distance is a white house with a red roof, I don’t know that that means anything. There is a man and a woman, the man seems to be reaching for the woman’s cup. His wreath is red, her shoes are red, the lion with wings and the roof are red. I honestly feel kinda bland about this card. I have no strong emotions one way or the other towards this card.

The book- The two of Cups is a welcome card for those interested in a new relationship, for it is about that exciting time when people first meet and acknowledge their attraction. The card doesn’t necessarily say if the connection will be long lasting or whether it will be entirely good; it simply says that it exists.

The Universal Waite Card- Focuses on the powerful effects of a relationship based on such an emotional connection. The behavior of the two figures is very formal and dignified. If they touch at all, it is possible their fingertips brush as his hand reaches toward her cup. From their union healing arises, symbolized by the caduceus. In addition, this partnership elevates our base animal tendencies, as shown by the lion with wings. 

Core Meaning-  Deep emotional connection or attraction.
