This morning when I woke up I felt rather down. The excitement of the new year has decreased a bit and I feel tired. Outside the weather is grey and gloomy. I picked up my new Angel Tarot, which I’m growing quite fond of and I drew the Queen of Water (Cups). What a beautiful card. When I see a card from this deck, immediately my eyes are drawn to the words and only after reading the words and phrases, I look at the picture. But don’t let the simplicity of the words fool you. In this picture there is a lot going on. This queen is an angel as well as a mermaid. She is connected to the heavens as well as to the deep vast ocean. The stars from heaven guide her and light her way. The air and clouds are circling around her while she is treading the waves accompanied by the large sea mammals.
This Queen reminds me of the queen of cups in the Shadowscapes tarot who is also showing us she is able to dance in both worlds at the same time.
First I thought this card was a message to be kind and gentle with myself today. But now I know it was also a loving suggestion to be all that for my youngest who had a lot of anxiety about her teeth (orthodontic troubles) We talked a lot and did find an appeasing solution. It is funny, but I feel a lot better myself. Instead of reveling in my own problems, I was more focused on helping and loving her. And in turn, she is feeling a lot better too. So this was a win, win situation
