Happy Monday! The temperatures here in Texas have soared into the triple digits and I find myself fighting lethargy. My A/C unit never shuts off and I keep my thermostat at 78 degrees. So, I’m looking for positive inspiration and motivation today! Boy, do I need to unplug!
I found this meditation to be energizing and hopefully you will too!
Now, for the tarot reading for the week.
The Queen of Cups is nurturing, caring, compassionate and sensitive. When you see her in a Tarot reading, you are embodying her ‘nurturing mother’ energy. You support others by listening with your heart, being compassionate, and caring for them deeply. The Queen of Cups says you are highly intuitive, creative, and in flow with the surrounding energies. In your interactions with others, you can easily read other people to get a sense of how to communicate effectively, enabling you both to feel heard and understood. In your creative projects and endeavors, you ‘feel’ your way into them, trusting your heart and your inner guidance to lead you in the right direction. You know when something is off, and you pay attention to this, even if it doesn’t make rational sense. Lead with your heart, not your head.
The Six of Pentacles is all about giving and receiving—sharing. Even if you are not financially wealthy, you offer up your time, energy, love, and support to those who are in need, knowing it will be appreciated. Giving of your time or your wisdom is often just as spiritually fulfilling as giving away money or gifts, and the intangible gift of your presence is received just as well, if not better. You may be on the receiving end of other people’s generosity and are advised to accept these gifts with gratitude. Finally, the Six of Pentacles is a card representing financial harmony. The amounts flowing in and out are in balance, and you are thankful for what you have and happy to share with others in need.
When the Queen of Pentacles appears in a Tarot reading, you are embodying the ultimate working parent archetype. You care for your family and domestic responsibilities while also making a living for yourself and creating financial abundance. You can maintain a healthy balance between home and work by integrating the two and finding your place of ‘flow’ and alignment. You strive to create a warm and secure environment for your family and loved ones while giving your love and support freely. It is important to you to live independently, with a stable income, and with enough time and space to also nurture your loved ones. You may be trying to strike a better balance between your home and work lives, giving it your all in both domains. At the same time, you find time for yourself and prioritize ‘me’ time in between all of your other commitments.
With two queens in this week’s reading, there is a lot of strong feminine energy. I have always directly related to the Queen of Cups, tending to live from my heart and not my head. But, as with everything, it needs a balance and the Queen of Pentacles provides that with the harmony of the Six of Pentacles in between the two queens, giving and receiving. Let your heart lead you, share with others and stay grounded in the physical world. One of the most difficult things we have to do is find time to nurture ourselves (or at least I do) so I find this timely advice from the Queen of Pentacles also.
This beautiful emerald dragon fits right into the entire theme for this week. Enjoy!
