The Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups has been showing up in a bunch of readings that I have done for myself here lately. So curious me pulled three cards on what her involvement is in my life at the moment.

I pulled Eight of Wands, Ace of Cups, and The Wheel.

So it look like to me that the energy involved here is pretty important. Movement and fulfilment and Change. Hmm. the movement is moving away from something  while at the same time it is heading towards the fulfilment (Ace of Cups). But maybe to get to this fulfilment I am going to have to go through some serious changes. What I am not sure about is whether it is a change in attitude or place or with relationships that I have with people. I just drew the Four of Cups as a clarifier for the Wheel of Change.Now since this is a cup which deals with emotions I would say that is attitude or emotion that needs to be changed. Which does fit together for me since the Queen is the Queen of Cups. So either this card (Queen of Cups) is telling me that something/ someone is going to help me make the required changes and movements that are needed to feel emotionally full(Ace of Cups.) All of this is good too here.

I hope this made sense because I am typing this while the kids are up, and I have to do that fast because they like to get into mischief.




Important Info

They have asked us to put up links to the Accelectic website on our blogs. I am not too sure about how to do that so I will just put up a post with this link. http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/

So I guess I am really behind the times. I just now drew up my year card using  my birth day and month plus this year 2010. I don’t exactly know how you apply them to the year, if this is the lesson I need to learn this year or the energy that is applied to it. Lets take a peek at last years card, Death. Now nothing really changed and I can’t really say that I can think of anything that ended, or any transformations. Well I could say that my old thinking on spirituality underwent a bit of a change so maybe it’s talking about letting old beliefs go to be able to accept new ones.

Now I do need to learn how to balance my life. I have a hard time actually getting everything to fit in together like I want it too, nothing seamlessly flows in any way. So maybe just maybe I will get a handle on things. I also need to become more balanced inside too. I have to say that every since my second baby was born my emotions have been a bit Out there, and it has taken until recently for me to get any kind of handle on them.

I probably also need to figure out how to blend my spiritual side with my more day-to-day mundane side. No one around me now holds the same beliefs as me, which is ok. I have figured out that you don’t Have to follow the leader, that making your own mold sometimes means that you might get a bit of flak in the face but all that matters is what You feel you need to be a better adjusted person in the end. I wasn’t happy when I followed what others wanted for me, I am now. Coincidence? I think not Watson.=p



Gypsy Spread

Last night I sat down on the floor and did this mega long spread, and I do mean Mega long. It has 21 cards that cover a long range of questions from the past to the future. The funny thing that I see though is that a few cards that have seemingly been stalking me here lately show up yet again. Sho I am going to write down everything first and then Attempt to try and write out some kind of meaning to it all, I might break out in a sweat.

Ahhh, Geez that is long and its going to get longer.

I. Work/Prospects. alright so here I need to be Totally honest and say, I have not really worked much in my life. I have had three jobs all of which where no longer then three months. But, I do have two kids and have been home with them since I was nineteen. I hesitate to say that the ties of family are what this card is about, maybe I felt a bit restricted in the past from it. The Page of Swords reminds me so very much of both my children. The child is a red head and looks in an odd way like both my little girl and boy. They are very high spirited and high needs children. They require a lot of work but they are teaching me a lot about patience and perseverance. The Queen of Coins I think points to me becoming independently working outside the home, making my contiributation to the family with making my own money.  I would like this, I love love love my kids just sometimes I miss being around adults=)

II. Home/ Needs. In the past I only concentrated on myself, I also seemed to have a love of the finer things. The Hanging Man does really remind me of the circumstance right now. Since I am still as stay at home mom and we only have one car I am in a bit of a resting and waiting phase right now. The last one bothers me a bit though, some movement would be nice to see but I don’ t want to move away totally. I like how the figure is reaching for the moon, but I don’t think I want to go so totally far from where I am right now that I am out of orbit.

III. Luck/ Desires. I think the six of cups indicates my desire sometimes to be able to do things over in the past. I don’t do this all the time, but in the past I had a big problem with this. Ace of Cups means that things are starting to look up for me and I am starting to feel fulfilled. Six of Wands, what a good card to have in the luck section. Whenever this starts I will have a pretty happy and lucky time.

IV. Friends/Support: This one kinda has me stumped a bit. I say that I have in the past had help from those higher up, and right now (Two of Swords) I am blind to those around me, I am not in contact with many people do to moving around A lot and being super shy, plus not working and not having a car, so its kind of me and hubs in a party for two type of thing, which isn’t always a good thing=) Ahh now here is my stalker. The Queen of Cups  has shown up almost in every reading I have had recently, it would be nice to really know what she wants..

V. Love/Sex. I am not even sure about any of this, The chariot, wanting to be the one at the reigns=p Two of Wands, I have no clue, the picture on this card is of two looked boxes with the key floating in between and sort of in front of them. Either I like having/being mysterious or in my relationship now we both have secrets. King of Swords, I don’t know if this is someone in my life or me, that is the problem I have with court cards sometimes. I am just going to leave it alone.

VI. Plans/Goals: Four of Cups, I didn’t really have any. I was in more of a looking at what I couldn’t do versus what I could do. The Devil, I once agian am not sure. It seems like its saying I am taking advantage of something or manipulating, but really I am not. I’m pretty much just waiting around for my oldest to go into school this year so I can take college classes. Five of Swords, I suddenly go into command and conquer mode, what the heck is that? I can barely make plans for later in the day let alone become a conquering barbarian who takes over. Maybe it means that I don’t get far with my plans, we’ll have to wait and see.

VII. Personal Quest. Setting my goals/foundations, working diligently, then setting it out into the world and watching it take sail. Now I have always wanted to do some fictional writing, I have great ideas I just was never very good at grammar or just generally writing good stories. Maybe I should just work at it and see what comes of it. That is what it seems to be saying here.

Wooo! that was one loooong reading. I am now off to indulge in anything chocolate that I can find hiding in my cupboards.

Cheers to you!


Me in a Nutshell

I sometimes find it  hard too really know how I relate to people. I always feel a bit awkward  and just generally out of place. Its always been an odd thing since I hate being by myself and like the company of others its just in the back of my head I am constantly wondering how they really see me. So I am going to draw one card on How others see me using the Legacy.

Knight of Coins:

Hmm, a very earthy personality. I have always thought that most of the time I am seen as a very airy person who is caught up in their own head and well also is seen as some what of an air head or ditz.

On another’s blog they said the Knight of Pentacles/Coins isn’t a very exciting person, one who really goes with the flow and is content to follow others lead. Compares themselves with others and wants what they have. Values their family and kids and their few close friends. A lot of that sounds true, I don’t particularly want to stand out and I do feel more of a bond with my family then with a whole group of friends. I have always had one or two close friends at a time and not a whole group. I have had times where I  wanted to stand out, but then that being uncomfortable around others always stands in my way. There is also a  picture of two horses on this card and I find that funny because out of all the animals in the world horses are the ones that I love the most, and I tend to get them better then I do people.

 So I can sort of see how I could be the solid not too exciting but always by your side Knight of Coins.



I love doing these types of spreads. The long ones are really fun to do about once a week, it also is fun to try something I am not too sure I will be able to actually do and then make myself do it. I have also decided to try to stick with just doing readings with one deck at a time for a while. I will do this for a while, but instead of trying out all different kinds to do all different kinds of readings I am just going to stick with one deck at a time till’ it feels like it’s the time to stop. It will take me longer to go through the twelve or so decks that I do own, but I feel like I will build up a better relationship with each one if I give them one on one time for a specific period of time. Ok onwards to the reading.

Card 1. I am this now: Knight of Cups. I am trying to find a way to master my emotions, and not let them rule over me. That is something that I find Very hard to do. My emotions sometimes literally Run away from me.

Card 2. This is what bugs me: Three of Wands. This is one card that has shown up a lot here for me lately. I hate to stay in one place for long periods of time and love to go out and explore the world. Do to the way that my life is at the moment I am not able to do that, and that really bugs me. The man standing on the beach watching the sky ship take flight really does feel like what I go through a lot, watching while others get to do as they want, leaving me behind. Its an emotion that also bugs me to have, makes me feel really childish and I hate to feel childish.

Card 3.What I like about myself: Ten of Cups. The picture in this set is a bit different from the normal , it shows a cat and dog lying down together in front of a roaring fire. I would say that I like my loyalty, that even if I don’t always get along with that person I still offer loyalty and trust way beyond when I need to.

Card 4. What I don’t like about myself: Justice. There are two women on this card, both blinded by intricate hoods. So I would say that I don’t pay as much attention to what is around me sometimes. Or I can turn a blind eye when I really don’t need too.

Card 5. My talent: Three of Cups. This card is also a bit different. Instead of showing three women dancing and celebrating there is only one woman dancing behind three musical instruments. I don’t particularly think that I am musically inclined, and I know for a fact that I can’t dance. So maybe it is just saying that I am really good at being cheerful? Its really hard to see the positive in oneself, especially when you suffer from a dangerously low self-esteem so I am really not seeing much here..

Card 6. My temptation: The Star: The mysteries of the universe. I really can’t add any more here.

Card 7. My personal quest: Five of Wands. To resolve conflicts surrounding me. Both inner and outer ones.

Card 8. My current guardian angel: Strength. So I am not too sure why they added this one in here. It doesn’t really seem to fit the rest of the questions. I have just recently started to feel my guardian angel, and while I can’t see what they look like and I haven’t had any personal contact with him/her I do feel like they are very very strong. It kinda reminds me of the lion, very fierce like a warrior. I wish I could find away to become more in touch with my guardian, I would really love to have a close relationship.

I really love these cards, the scenery and pictures are so colorful and I do so love color. I just can’t seem to apply color meanings or numerology to my reading at all. I seem to be more of an emotional reader. I take the pictures and apply them to how they make me feel, I don’t seem to remember any of the real meanings and even if I look them up they usually don’t fit in the same way. I still seem to have a lot of trouble with the court cards. I kind of dread having them come up in a reading. Sometimes I don’t know if they are referring to a strong emotion or someone else. Also it seems like a bunch of the same cards have been cropping up on me lately. The Queen of Cups shows up a lot when I am pulling cards and I don’t write them down. I don’t know if it applies to a feeling within me or someone else either in my life or someone I am going to meet soon. That confuses me. Well I hope that everyone has a wonderfully blessed weekend.




This week has been a little crazy, and with having a head cold and just generally feeling blah I haven’t really touched my cards at all. But, I have discovered tonight that I am more intune with them then I had thought. Today I was in court for a very minor legal issue that was resolved in under five minutes but still  has caused a lot of irritation until then. In drawing a reflection card tonight for the day from the Divine Legacy I of course received the Justice card. I love it when this happens, it makes me feel like maybe I am not as crappy with them as I feel like I am sometimes, and that I am starting to develop a rapport with this cards. Tomorrow I plan on doing my usual long spread, but I felt like just drawing one card tonight.
