This month I used one of my very favorite all time decks for you, the A King's Journey Tarot. I adore the deck and can't say enough good things about it. It's was created by Chanel Bayless, who's a real sweetheart by the way. Artwork by James Battersby. Very beautiful deck that truly speaks to me.
All that out of the way LOL, the question I asked for you this month was what you need to know to make the most of March 2014. And here below is what the cards had to say for you about that:
Card 1: 2 of Wands
Love this image! OK, to start with this card is about creating something together with someone else in your life. Could be about the relationship the two of you are creating together and how it is being created. OR the card could be about something else that you are creating together with someone else. (Wands are about creating for me, and the 2s are about the relationships between two people, for me).
Of course the main theme in this card image is one of a phoenix. I looked and found this about the phoenix on Wikipedia: "a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor."
To me this says the message here is about regeneration and rebirth. Relationships do go through phases and cycles. They have ups and downs, easier times and harder times., ebbs and flows...So the basic message for you from this card this month is about that. It's about regenerating any relationships that feel like they could use a touch of revamping in your life. About creating something more beautiful from what is now there (the ashes of what is currently there).
This is a spiritual message to me, as birds are about our spiritual sides for me. So the whole message here is about how to create a more spiritual connection with someone you are now creating/sharing a relationship with.
As for the rest of the image, there is a cave, whose access is shown a bit obstructed by flowing lava and the two crossed flaming Wands. And inside is the beautiful pure flow of water, water representing our deepest emotions, that you want to reach in the other to forge/create a deeper connection.
This says that someone in the relationship, you/the other/.or you both. have some walls up making it harder for the other person to get to your true inner self. To create something deeper you need to get there, to touch each other on that level. That is the challenge of this card, to get to that place in each other. This card is saying that maybe in the end, if you really tried, what is in the way is not really that difficult to bypass. The lava is not really flowing past the door to the cave, and you could do under the torches. So that getting closer is still very possible, says this card.
Card 2: 8 of Cups (reversed)
This, right here, is a very good card and a nice positive part of your answer. This card is a Cups card and it's all about your feelings and emotions. And it's a reversed 8. Which is very interesting to me personally as I just changed my meanings for reversed 8's the day before I did this reading. So this is the first reading I have done with my new meaning in tact. So thank you for giving me this chance. :-)
So it is about your feelings this month. And the reversed 8 is talking about that mysterious part of life that ensures that things would out for the best for us in the end, no matter what we say or do. Sometimes we all make our mistakes, but life somehow balances it all out in the end in our own best interest. That is what this card is about.
It says that one thing that you can do to make the most of this month of March is to allow and encourage yourself to feel inside that no matter what you say or do, in the end things will work out in your best interest. Allow and encourage your faith that life has your back.no matter what.
the image shows this as well. There you are in the image, scrambling to shore. Climbing over any difficult feelings in your path to get to where you want to go. Maybe some of those feelings needed to be upturned along your path, replaced with better ones for you. But in the end, as you can see, you will get to where you want to go. And all your work will bear fruit. And you will be able to reap what you sewed from the effort you put in.
So that is the message from this card. To have as much faith as you can in the process. That you will get to the best place for you, no matter which mistakes you make along the way. You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be in the game.
Card 3: Knight of Wands
This is a nice card here to me. :-) It's again a Wands card, about how to create what you want this month in the best way. But this card is the Knight. And Knights, for me personally, are about taking a walk in someone else's shoes, imagining what it would be like to actually be them. Imagining what it would be like to think and feel as they do, to have their lives right now instead of yours and be in their place.
As for the card image. The Knight is facing left here, which is talking about the past. So this card says that to create what you want to in the best ways this month it would help you to think about the past. About how our past experiences affect who we become later on, About the effect our upbringings and environments have on us. And to respect the differences that naturally occur in people with very different backgrounds. And to respect other's right to be who they are just as you would want them to respect yours.
And to see that had you had their background you might be just as they are now. And how would you want to be treated if you were?
This card also encourages you to ask questions of others to get different viewpoints, to see how situations look from other people's eyes. And to see how that teaches you new ways to create what you want from life.
Card 4: flipped Queen of Spirit
This last card for you, was a flipped card. A flipped card, being one that flips out of the deck during shuffling. Flipped cards indicate messages that\ you are being asked to stop and think over. They say that if you do, you will see something more than you may not have noticed at first.
This card is from the suit of Spirit. The suit of Spirit is something unique and truly beautiful about this deck. Most decks have only 4 suits. But this one adds in a 5th, the suit of Spirit. It makes so much sense to me that I wish all decks had this. The suit of Spirit is, of course, about our souls/spirits and all things spiritual.
And this card is the Queen, the Queens for me are about sharing. About creating something together in connection with others. This message has a lot to do with the message of the first card as well, which was about creating a deeper more spiritual connection with others.
On it's own, this card is a reminder that we being with a soul. We are not just our bodies, we are not just our thoughts of feelings. But that there is something more to us. Something that can be touched to tears by a beautiful sunset or song. Something that lets us connect deeply enough to others that we can deeply feel for the tragedies of strangers. Something that connects us with the planet.. We are being with a soul/spirit. And this card is about that. About connecting to life with and through that part of us.
And about remembering that after all we are life. We are connected to the spiritual parts of life both when we choose to remember and when we choose to forget. And life is always what it is. And always ensures that things work out for the best in the end. Although when we forget the path may be longer to get here, as we sabotage ourselves a bit more and don't always make the best choices for us.
And if this is part of your belief system (if not feel free to ignore this part), there can also be the message here to remember that you are not alone. And that you are a co-creator of your life, and have help anytime you want and ask from something higher. And yes, that you are loved.
