October 9: A large oak tree can grow from a small acorn. Acorns symbolize the harvest of projects that need a long time to bear fruit. What takes a long time for me to bear fruit?
My card for today is the Ace of cups from the Druidcraft Tarot. Not the most easy card for me but definitely a beautiful card. Always when I see this card I think: “my cup runneth over”. I wish it was. The Ace of cups is all about love; all sorts of love. But when your cup keeps pouring love there must be a source inside that keeps the flow going. And strangely that source is the same love. I used to think the more love you get, the more you have to give. But when one of my main sources of love was cut off, my cup didn't run over any more. After a long process of grief and healing acceptance, I've learned that it isn't the more you get, the more you can give. But instead, the more you give, the more you have. For you cannot give what isn't already there. The second thing was that loving myself is as valid as being loved by somebody else. So gradually my spring of love is coming to life again. Now I realize it will be a lifetime of tending and caring for this strong and yet so fragile flowing cup. And my harvest? A lifetime of drinking and sharing from that same cup.
