Tarot Card ~ November 18

Ten of Cups


Fortune Cookie: Stretch the fabric of your reality by thoroughly embracing the miraculous in your existence.  Remember though: it can’t be a half-assed embrace. 


 This card last turned for almost four months ago to the day.  And it’s a terrific, wonderful card.  So before you read my interpretation…

Take a look at the card. 

Yes. Now.

What does this card say to YOU?  What do you see in it, just uniquely FOR YOU?  What legends come back to you?  What old hopes?  What dreams?  What is YOUR interpretation of the card? 

And what will you do with THAT today?


Getting back to my normal nattering and chattering, Tens in any Tarot deck betoken

the end of one cycle and the beginning of another, or even

the end of one way of life and the beginning of another. 

So, when this card comes up in a reading for clients, I ask them to consider how the things they are experiencing – and more importantly, what they have begun to seek in life just now – represent the potential end of a cycle and moving into something wonderful, new, even miraculous.  [You know.  Like me having something new to say about a card for a change.  Or something.]

How can YOU acknowledge the end of a cycle?

How can you recognize that the end of this cycle is a positive thing, and is “just in time/just at the right time?”

How can you own the potential to move into something wonderful and powerful and new? 

Aaaaaaaah, [ha ha ha hahaha] but there’s more to it. [Of course.  Right?]

I consider the Ten of Cups to be one of the two great WISH cards of the deck.  

 So, when this card turns  – after I stop beaming at the client and stop wondering why it hasn’t come up in a reading for me lately − I usually say something like:

Ohboy!  Ohboy!   Ohboy!  [Sometimes I’m subject to bursts of enthusiasm.]  You shall most assuredly indeed have comfort, joy, healing and delight − perhaps through what may seem almost miraculous intervention –


  IF you are clear within yourself about what your wishes truly are,

IF you truly believe in the goodness and the justness of your wishes,

IF you allow yourself to truly believe in miracles,

AND IF you hold true to your miraculous quest, moment by moment by moment, no matter how farfetched or hopeless it may seem, no matter how misunderstood you and your quest may be by everyone else.

[Corbenic, as I’ve said before, is one of the names given to the castle in which the Holy Grail resided until the Grail knights achieved their sacred quest.  The Grail Kings, guardians of the Grail, held to their family’s sacred mission for hundreds of years on faith and belief in the miracles to come.]

The Universe smiles on those who stretch the fabric of our reality by thoroughly embracing the miraculous in their existence.  Remember though: it can’t be a half-assed embrace.  You have to really reach out and take hold.  You have to let yourself KNOW that the miraculous operates in your life NOW

So, as I’ve said before, it might be very useful to go through today repeating at least a thousand times,

“I create miracles. My life IS miracles. Our world is miracles.”

Because you do, and it is.  With every breath, every thought, every hope, every smile, there are millions of miracles being born within and through you.

Let the Universe see that you believe in miracles, and watch what unfolds.

Bright blessings!  And miracles!

    Your post is so full of hope and optimism, Neal. Thank you! I love the Winnie the Poo quote and seeing him swinging…as well as looking over the bridge. The beautiful rainbow background didn’t hurt my feelings either!

    Kinda goes with some “work” I did this morning. I was working with Code #3 of the Healing Codes (Alex Loyd) and asked Spirit what “Unhealthy Belief” I might be holding, sensing it wasn’t any of those listed as beliefs to consider. I immediately heard “that you are getting old.” Thoughts of Deepok Chopra’s work around “Ageless Body, Timeless Mind” crept in and I started appropriate affirmations while doing the codes….asking, as I always do, that the effectiveness of the healing be increased 100,000 or more and extended to include those near and dear to me.

    Yup! Lots o’ culturally promoted thoughts/heart imaging around aging came forward for clearing.

    All good stuff. So, thank you, Walt Disney, for all your magical work. And thank you, Neal, for all the sweet reminders to embrace the miraculous in our existence.

    ~ ~ Blessings, Donna
