Warrior Four - Foundations Blessed

Tarot of the Sidhe, Warrior Four, Foundations Blessed, Emily Carding
Rest , Rejoice and Recuperate: those were the first three words that came to mind when I drew the Warrior four – Foundations blessed from the Tarot of the Sidhe.
This is a card about celebrating achievements and gathering around hearth fire to share stories, food and most important love.  No need to worry about the mountains in the background yet.
Love is the inner fire that drives us. Sometimes tender and gentle like a flickering candle flame, sometimes with blazing flames of passion and desire.
Love is what brings us together and connects us through ties that transcend time and place. In that way you will never be alone although it might seem so. Love is a fire which needs to be kindled and rekindled, especially the love you feel for yourself which somehow often has a way to be smothered.
So it is important to go through this gate and take the time to celebrate what you have accomplished so far and to be grateful for the love in your life.
Today I am going to buy some more plants for my garden and for my husband’s balcony. Flowers do have a way of making a house a home. Also I am also going to try to slow down today and be more aware of the love which lives in my heart and home and try to permeate my words and actions with it.
“The gate becomes a hearth, a home
No need for ever being alone
They celebrate the inner fire
Joyous love that will never tire”
 Emily Carding

 “Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do... but how much love we put in that action.”  Mother Teresa


  1. "Take time to celebrate" is such great advice. I take time to work and make time to rest, but the playing and celebrating sometimes gets left out of the mix. Hope you have a grand time at the gardening center choosing flowers!

    1. Thanks! We've just returned and have found some beautiful plants and flowers which we are going to plant now. It is very hot outside so we will have to water them too if we want them to survive the journey :)
      I will post some pictures tomorrow!

  2. Nothing like flowers to celebrate love!
