Tarot Card ~ May 8

Queen of Cups

Britannia

 

 

Fortune Cookie:  Keep an eye out for a wise, fair, caring woman who may be able to give you a hand.  Own your artistic and intuitive nature.  Honor and care for The Land, its creatures and its Spirit.  And have compassion – for others, yes, but especially for yourself.

This card last turned for us just about mid-December.  

And, especially in this

can we all take a moment to honor the  “Yo!  Will you PLEASE just TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FOR A BIT FOR A CHANGE?” message here?  Made sense ennytime, and makes extra sense for most of us now.  So… Pretty please?  With sprinkles?

 

Most readers respond to this card by predicting things like happiness, pleasure, or a good, fair, honest and devoted woman who will serve the querent − the person having the reading.  So if those things fit in with your needs, reach out for them; let yourself receive them.  And if you encounter such a person, by all means engage her now on your own behalf.

 

One reader finds this card embodies the nature of St. Clare − the founder of the Poor Clares – the feminine counterpart of St. Francis who embraced poverty, simplicity and service with great love and compassion for all.  Always an 

ideal worth espousing.

 

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, sees the Queen of Cups as many beautiful and wonderful things, including an Otherworldly woman with a wealth of artistic ability who trusts her psychic abilitiesAlso a poetic person of vision and intelligence.  So, by all means, EMBODY THOSE THINGS in yourself and your life.

Britannia is the Spirit of the Land of Great Britain, and (in my interpretation of this card) reminds us that we bear an obligation of loyalty to our land, i.e.,  to our environment and all the creatures who continue to live among us, as well as to those we have displaced in our creation of “civilization” and ecocatastrophes [which, on this planet, may well have become redundant]. So put out some goodies for the birds and squirrels for a change.

 

In working with clients over the years, I have also come to know the Queen of Cups as a card of compassion – especially compassion for the self.

 

One of the most persistent pop psychology tenets of the 70s went something like,

“You can’t reee-eee-eeeelly love anyone else unless you love yourself first.”

 

Well, I’ve found that this card cautions something like that.

 

When it turns up for a client, I remind them that, whatever may be going on in their life, it would be well if the whole magilla were seen and understood through the perspective of compassionate contemplation.

 

And, just as important, it is necessary to be compassionate toward the self during times of stress or turmoil.  That way, we’ll be more likely to take care of ourselves well enough to be an appropriately compassionate helper to others if/when we are called to.

 

So:

 

Keep an eye out for a wise, fair, caring woman who may be able to give you a hand.  Own your artistic and intuitive nature.  Honor and care for The Land, its creatures and its Spirit.  And have compassion – for others, yes, but especially for yourself.

 

Bright blessings and a beautiful, gentle day!
