February 2015 Card of the Month—Queen of Cups

Queen of cups Padmes Card of the MonthQueen of Cups— Padmes February 2015 Card of the Month

Queen of Cups—Card of the Month—The ultimate lady of intrinsic satisfaction, emotional healing, and authentic nurturing. If you were having reservations about emotional aspects of yourself that sometimes you wish would just stay put—way down there, let the poor girl out of the cave. You can and will handle this part of yourself with ease and care and grace, more so than you suspected you could. When we acknowledge pain and past hurts, they can begin to heal and release. When we don’t, it can be pretty difficult to live in the present moment… especially when the past keeps a lock on that door.

Relationships this month can get deep real quick. They can step into waters that normally we avoid treading. The Queen of Cups is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to getting to the bottom of emotional self-discovery and healing at the base level. She asks the questions, touches the wounds, and centers the soul when the answers begin to brim over. This can be an amazing month of healing through joy if you can be aware of your own process and able to identify your truth when making choices. i.e. not including choices that mirror past patterns of which would be ineffective at the different frequency you reside in now anyway.

The business world in terms of this emotional outpouring of your internal soul may be riding on circumstances and happenstance this month. Taking on more than you can handle to help someone else out, or to appear more helpful than one person could actually be in this situation may knock you out if you’re not careful. Part of this Queen’s process is to balance and adjust using intuition and gut feelings… The idea is not to overextend out of empathy. Keep your wits about you. Acknowledge your feelings about what’s going on around you and then bring them to your mind’s eye. Now how do you see this playing out when you’re not triggered?

February’s Affirmation—”I acknowledge and dive deep into the parts of me that I know to be true, honor my authenticity, and accept my Truth Self.”

The Fool’s Journey

The Fools Journey Padmes Reiki ReadingsThe Fool’s Journey through the Major Arcana from 0-21

 

The Fool (0) is one with all. The more The Fool follows his heart, the more the Universe provides his heart’s desire. He collects and recognizes resources available to everyone.  While learning about these resources, he becomes The Magician (I) and sees there is more depth than just what’s on the outer layers of what he can embody. Pulling from earth energy, he opens his heart chakra, sets it to receiving, and begins to use these resources, thus starts his journey into intuition integrating into the High Priestess (II).

The High Priestess pulls from self-truth energy and goddess energy healing as she is acknowledged and becomes the healing Empress (III). This Empress heals others by giving them permission to heal themselves. She is part of the Major Arcana couple and thus grounds with the Emperor (IV). His knowingness stems from man’s perfectionism obsession and he brings order by use of rules and regulations. When he realizes that man alone cannot rule, he evolves into The Hierophant (V) merging with Spirit/Higher power.

The Hierophant, knowing Spirit, marries harmony, peace and love: the Lovers (VI) who balance masculine and feminine. The Lovers are more successful when they connect to the power of the Universe and the momentum of The Chariot (VII), where desire and Spirit connect, fully embodying neutrality. The Chariot encounters no obstacles and knows he is most effective when he uses Strength (VIII), the embodiment of evolution and having the knowingness to claim his own energetic space, rather than use force. To fully embody neutrality,  he must go back into the womb of self to self-reflect and find his own path, The Hermit (IX).

The Hermit wins the jack pot by incubating in his truth—finding gratitude and alignment—Wheel of Fortune (X). Here Karma comes into play bringing him to Justice (XI). What you do to self, you do to others. What you do to others, you do to self. With Justice comes his time to reconcile as the surrenderer—The Hanged Man (XII).

The Hanged man repents for gains and losses which leads to total transition. He stays in a holding pattern until he finds his deeper meaning. When integrated, he encounters a rebirth—Death (XIII).

Once without a body, when the energetic self is understood, ultimate forgiveness and understanding of balance can occur, Temperance (XIV). During the process of releasing shadow to achieve balance surfaces energy that is no longer in affinity with The Fool as well as patterns that no longer serve him: the need to judge and to blame—The Devil (XV).

The Devil leads to destroying old foundations created by illusions, The Tower (XVI). Once this false security is gone, the chrysalis cracks open and frees The Fool’s perfect potential, The Star (XVII). When this Truth Self potential is revealed, pathways for the subconscious and past lives, The Moon (XVIII), and the conscious, source womb, purity of heart, The Sun (XIX) emerge, bringing the hero into full embodiment of Judgement (XX)—understanding that he alone is his own Judge. When he releases others’ judgements of himself and this radical self knowingness is acknowledged, The World (XXI) is his. True integration with life and Spirit can occur.

Happy Travels!
