Oracle: Your Gaian Tarot Reading


The OPPORTUNITYThe CHALLENGEThe RESOLUTION
3 - the Gardener
Sensuality, creativity, abundance

It is a time of great fertile and abundant opportunities for you. You are pregnant with new creations — an art form, a book, a project, even a baby. You embody both the nurturing Mother and the sensual Lover. You are a steward of the land when you plant, weed and nourish your garden in a sustainable manner. At harvest time, you offer the best possible of all foods to those whom you love. You are a hard worker, but you take great delight in the scent of lavender fields on a hot summer day and the dizzying riot of color, shapes and textures in the garden. You love your own body; you love your mate, your children, your friends, your community; you love the natural world around you. Your appetite for connection, sensuality and creativity seems boundless. The people around you are blessed to have you in their lives.
12 - the Tree
Letting go

You are being challenged to release attachments, to surrender to the flow. You are no longer in charge of your life. It isn't a time to resist, for everything is out of your control. Give it up. Your world may feel like it's been turned upside down. You can fight this reversal — you can go into it kicking and screaming — or you can surrender with grace and take it as an opportunity to see your life from a different perspective. It is a time to take no action, other than meditation and prayer. Learn to be still. During this time of suspension and waiting, you may discover within yourself the gifts of inspiration, enlightenment and unconditional love.
9 - the Hermit
Sacred solitude

Resolution comes as you spend time in sacred solitude. You need to withdraw from the world to focus on your inner life and spirituality. Perhaps you have been wounded in the "wars of the world," or perhaps you are fatigued and empty from putting out so much energy, especially if you are a caregiver. Your well is empty and it needs to be filled. Take some time out for a retreat. Go away to the mountains or the sea, by yourself, without partner or friends. Spend time outside in nature, observing the changes in your environment day by day. Your inner wisdom and sense of well-being will grow effortlessly the more time you spend outside. When you once again enter community life, others will be drawn to the light they see inside you and may come to you for guidance. For part of your purpose is to share what you've learned with others.

Ive done you a 5 card reading, in the shape of a cross, position 1 on the cross at west if like, you will relate to things you want to accomplish, postion 2, which is east, relates to your home life, postion 4 at north is unexpected events, postion 4 at south is your role in these events, and finally at the centre is outcome.

The first card if the 7 of cups, cups are all about feelings and emotions, the 7 of cups is very much about a question for emotional well being and harmony, however, when you look at this card you see a person staring into a pool of water at the many cups within, yet they seem totally oblivious to the full cup beside them, this is something you need to consider when you move forward in your life, be aware that you have some good things going for you already, don't forget them.

The 2nd card is about home, this is the Prince of cups, this is a very emotionally charged card, full of feeling. Which would suggest that perhaps things are a little turbulent at home, the prince holds a cup up, but his clothes are ragged, a bit like having a party whilst the guests are rowing in the kitchen, it would seem to say to me that underlying issues are not being addressed and are if you consider the previous card, being glossed over by a search for something better.

The third card is the nine of cups, this is related to unexpected events, but it is reversed, so whilst it is normally about enjoying the fruits of your labours, what we actually seem to have here is a situation where something is either blocking or going to occur where you cannot or will not be able to see what you have in front of you, everything seems like a negative, or that it sours your triumphs, perhaps you need to stop and smell the roses rather the horse manure.

The fourth card is your role, it is the 10 of pentacle, it very much is about being happy and enjoying what you have. And considering the other cards, it would suggest that perhaps if you take time to sit back and look at the goood things then good things will happen, its about being postive and looking at what you have around you, not all of us are meant to "be" somebody to anybody else than those that love us, and being somebody is subjective.

The final card is about the outcome, it is the Queen of wands reversed, the Queen of wands is a firey action card, its all about management and leadership, but it is reversed, I would suggest that the best outcome for you and yours perhaps involves a less proactive, driven approach, maybe take some time to sit back and see what the fates provide.

Dreams, voices and visions

Resolution comes through intuition and going within. Pay close attention to your dreams, as they may carry potent messages for you. Let your intuition flow. Listen for the subtext in the words of others; hear the words they don't speak out loud. Watch for synchronicities and omens in your everyday life. Study the "dark arts" of divination — reading the cards, astrology, scrying, interpreting dreams. Listen for voices in the wind, look for patterns in the clouds. Meditate. Study the language of symbol and myth. At the dark of the moon, or when your wise blood flows, listen to the still small voice within. It is Her voice, and it speaks of mysteries, secrets, and truth.

Using The Faeries' Oracle by Brian Froud

PAST
THE LADY OF THE HARVEST
It is time to accept change, to move on to the next phase. Power and strength in the present and future come from releasing the past. This is a time of liberation, and we might as well cooperate with it. It will happen, whether we want it to or not. Release and liberation may be painful or joyful, depending on the circumstances. Cry if you need to, be joyful if that is appropriate, but in either case trust the process, acknowledge what you feel, and prepare to move on.

PRESENT

LYS OF THE SHADOWS
Ultimately, Lys is trying to help people develop true self-respect and self-esteem, but she has to start much further down the scale of idealism than that. She tries to inspire practical help for those who need it most. She is the inspiration for the first wobbly steps taken toward healing by a damaged soul. Her presence in a reading indicates that something that had seemed lost and fixed in that loss is now open to healing. Someone is ready to begin, with help, the climb out of the inner mire. There is hope here, and a need for loving kindness tempered by practicality. If you call upon Lys for assistance in helping another, she will always give it, often by encouraging them to be receptive and others to also be helpful. She always has time to support those who have time for others.

FUTURE

EPONA'S WILD DAUGHTER

Epona's Wild Daughter, Dorcha, is the sphinx, whose riddles must be answered lest we otherwise be destroyed by our own internal conflicts. Dorcha reminds us that we cannot go forward until we have faced something buried within us that is holding us back. Her presence in a reading tells us that finding and working through this is a task of some urgency. We can expect help in this from other people, from the faeries, and from our dreams, but we must be open to these difficult questions and answers and be ready to face things about ourselves that are not as we would wish them to be. She urges us to heal the unresolved issues about who we really are and what we truly want to be. This is part of the required course in Self Transformation 101 that we are all enrolled in here on Planet Earth. The answers to her riddles often come in a sudden burst of enlightenment, like the 'solution' to a Zen koan. We may watch a leaf fall or catch a glimpse of the tiny sliver of the new moon in the sky and suddenly be hit by the answer. Before that happens, we usually work long and hard upon the question, searching and digging for an answer. The realization, when we really have it, will be transformative; we will no longer be the people that we once were. You don't like this interpretation? Well, I have been telling you all along that we (you and I and everyone else) will all receive varying messages from the faeries in the cards. Yours may well differ from mine. Ask Dorcha what message she has for you--and don't be surprised if her answer is another question or riddle. She and I both wish you well in solving it with all our hearts.

Vila

Goddess of Transformation

Vila comes into your life to teach you to nourish wholeness by embracing flexibility and change.

Have you been too long in one form? Are you feeling rigid and stale, losing flexibility in your ways of thinking and being?

 

It is time to expand your awareness, to enhance your flexibility by gaining the perspective of other forms. It is time to move beyond basic human issues to merge with elements of nature.

 

When was the last time you experienced the rocks, trees, animals and mother earth as equal forms. When did you last gaze into the beauty of a flower, or connect with the mood of an art form? What have you always wished to experience but dared not?

 

Vila says the way to wholeness lies in experiencing the whole of creation in finite detail.

Suggested Ritual

Go to a quiet, warm place where you will not be disturbed for between 15-30 minutes. Play soft music if available. Sitting with your spine erect take twenty deep calming breaths. Close your eyes and mentally scan your body from the toes to head. Ask yourself "What am I feeling?", "What am I thinking?"

Breath into any tensions, tightness or pain until completely relaxed then choose an image, color or word as a Mantra to focus upon during this meditation.

Keep your minds eye fixed upon your choice of Mantra and should any other thoughts appear, see them float as a bubble gently out of your mind.

Stay with this meditation until you are totally relaxed and centered.

About The Goddess

Vila (pronounced vee'lah) is the eastern European name for the Goddess of Energy moving through the earth as nature.

Vily (plural) are known as female spirits that lived in the woods, mountains, and clouds; they could shape shift into swans, horses, falcons, or wolves.

In Slovakia, they are regarded as the souls of dead girls that lead young men to their deaths; they fire arrows that may disturb one's reason.

Vily are very protective of their terrain and use their arrows of death on those who trespass. They are consummate shape-shifters, able to change into animals such as snakes, swans, falcons, and horses. They love to play and dance. If contacted in the forest on a moonlit night, they might grant health, wealth, abundant crops or they might, if shown disrespect, dance the offender to death.

 


Shiela Goddess Realm Goddess Cards Goddess Wisdom

Sheila

Goddess of Opening

Sheila invites you to join her in opening.

Now is the time to move out of your comfort zone to embrace new experiences, people, places, and things. Sheila tells you it is also the time to begin new projects, forge new directions and venture out boldly in your life.

Have you been buried beneath the weight of work or despair? Or do you simply find yourself shy, restricted or self conscious. Do you feel that you have failed in some way to withdraw from the World? You may have needed a time of retreat, contemplation and self focus, but now Sheila bids that your period of seclusion has ended, to be followed by awakening and opening.  There is a project or relationship waiting to be created or re-kindled.

 

It is time to nurture completeness by opening yourself up to love, life, play and creation.

Suggested Ritual

If possible this ritual should be conducted by sun or moonlight in an outdoors location or in front of a large window. Find a warm, expansive place where you can comfortably lie down on a floor mattress and will not be disturbed.

Remove your clothes and lie on the floor mattress. Close your eyes and take ten long, relaxing breaths. Mentally scan your body from toes to your head and consciously relax any tensions or tightness.

When you are completely relaxed begin breathing deep, increasingly rapid breaths into your reproductive organs. As you breath, lovingly caress your hair, your face, your arms, your torso and thighs. Feel the magnetic charge of your skin heighten and gently work the sensation towards your pelvis, the place of all human creativity. Allow yourself to accept the beauty of your own sensations.

When you are ready you will see Sheila at your side, she has arrived to assist you give birth to expansion and creativity. Feel the powerful energy of intuition and creation pass from your lower chakra into her hands.

When you are done, thank The Goddess for her gift and see her glide off into the Light.

About The Goddess

An ancient Irish Goddess of birth and death, Sheila Na Gig's (pronounced shee'lah-nah-ghig) does not bear a great deal of history, but she is known for her grinning figure with both hands holding open her yoni atop many a church archway.

The ancient Celts like many indigenous cultures honored both male and female genitalia and used sculptured of such for protection. Sadly, most images were torn down or smashed by the the latter offended societies. Sheila Na Gig is often portrayed as a "hag" (woman of wisdom) in full nakedness: rib cage of bone, breasts sagging, with little teeth and hair.

She is considered to represent the  vibrant and yet defiant beauty of female aging.



Mama Pacha

Goddess of Integration

Mama Pacha calls you to your sacred inner self.

Mama Pacha beckons you to embrace your Earth Mother as your nurturing spiritual entity.

 

Have you learned yet how to connect with the Universal Energy? Have you commenced your journey into the unknown and unexplainable? Are you trapped in an illness, emotional crisis or depression? Are you seeking answers but do not know the questions? Are you afraid that you may lose yourself or sanity by venturing into this strange new age?

 

Mama Pacha beckons to you to now seek to bring together those fragmented parts of your personality to discover your true self. The issue may seem to be about another, but it is in truth a long standing issue within yourself.

 

The Goddess decrees to spend more time amongst the healing energies of nature, as it is here that you will discover your divine self.

Suggested Ritual

Select a warm, expansive place where you can comfortably lie down on natural earth (e.g. grass or sand) and will not be disturbed. If possible this ritual should be conducted by full early morning sun or moonlight. If unable to conduct ritual outside, in front of a large window will suffice.

Remove your clothes and lie down on a rug. Close your eyes and take ten long, relaxing breaths. Mentally scan your body from toes to your head and consciously relax any tensions or tightness.

Become aware of the elements of light and air that activate your skin.  Feel the gravitational connection of your body to the earth.  isualize yourself being held like a babe in the arms of the Mother spirit.

Raise your palms to the sky and commence breathing rapidly allowing yourself to tune into the vibrations of the Universal Energy. When you feel connected to the Source relax your breathe and continue to absorb the energies until every cell in your body is alive.

When you are complete finalize this integration by thanking the Goddess for her inspiration and see her glide off into the Light.

About The Goddess

Mama Pacha (Pachamama) in mythological folklore is the Goddess of Fertility, good fortune, and nature. The Inca's of ancient Peru believed that Mama Pacha personified the Earth.

Pachamama and her husband Inti, the Sun god, were viewed as generous deities, and it was a custom of the time to conduct animal sacrifices to the Earth Goddess. Mama Pacha continues to be worshipped today in Peru, where she has also been identified with the Virgin Mary by Indian Christians.

Mama Pacha is deemed to oversee planting and harvesting. Some depict her as a great dragon who causes earthquakes. The supreme god Pachacamac is said to have emerged from her and she is also mentioned as his consort.



Tara

Goddess of Centering

Tara is here to remind you to stay centered.

It is time to strengthen your center by focusing your awareness through rebirthing, meditation, breath and peaceful surrounds.

 

Let the turmoil of life go on without you. It is hard to hear your own voice in the midst of the frenzy of life. Go into the quiet, go into the calm to still your mind for intuition and inspiration.

 

When you return you will be stronger and more capable of dealing with what life has to offer.

Suggested Ritual

Go to a quiet, warm place where you will not be disturbed for between 15-30 minutes. Play soft music if available. Sitting with your spine erect take twenty deep calming breaths. Close your eyes and mentally scan your body from the toes to head. Ask yourself "What am I feeling?", "What am I thinking?"

Breath into any tensions, tightness or pain until completely relaxed then choose an image, color or word to focus upon during this meditation.

Keep your mind fixed on your choice of Mantra and should any other thoughts appear, see them float as a bubble gently out of your mind.

Stay with this meditation until you are totally relaxed and centered.

About The Goddess

Tara (pronounced tah'rah) originated in India and her name means "star".

Tara is a major Goddess in the Tibetan pantheon. She is known to help those who call upon her in tumultuous times of need, to steer a clear path, to find the stillness and strength within. She is also the Goddess of self-mastery and mysticism.

It is said that from Tara's first tear of compassion, a lake was formed. From the middle of this lake, a lotus emerged. When it bloomed, Tara emerged.

Although offered reincarnation in male form, she swore to be ever incarnated as a woman.

The OPPORTUNITYThe CHALLENGEThe RESOLUTION
0 - the Seeker
A new beginning

You have the opportunity to start a new journey, with a beginner's mind. Is it time to hit the road, either metaphorically or literally? Every time you set out on a journey, even if it's only a one-day hike, you embark on a spiritual journey as well. Be open to all the twists and curves in the road ahead. Be ready for wonderful surprises. Be open-hearted, innocent, trusting and spontaneous. Take a risk! Before you is a brand new adventure — the chance for a fresh start and endless possibilities.
19 - the Sun
Radiant joy

You are being challenged to let your light shine in the world. You may find a big smile on your face. With a huge burst of energy, your spirit is shouting out a great big YES! Perhaps you have accomplished a long term goal or are receiving accolades and attention for the good work you have done. You are healthy, energetic and enthusiastic with a warm and generous heart. It's time to celebrate and get out and play in the sunshine. Sing, dance, make love, let your creativity flow. Shine on!
3 - the Gardener
Sensuality, creativity, abundance

Resolution comes in on a wave of great fertility and abundance. You are pregnant with new creations — an art form, a book, a project, even a baby. You embody both the nurturing Mother and the sensual Lover. You are a steward of the land when you plant, weed and nourish your garden in a sustainable manner. At harvest time, you offer the best possible of all foods to those whom you love. You are a hard worker, but you take great delight in the scent of lavender fields on a hot summer day and the dizzying riot of color, shapes and textures in the garden. You love your own body; you love your mate, your children, your friends, your community; you love the natural world around you. Your appetite for connection, sensuality and creativity seems boundless. The people around you are blessed to have you in their lives.

The OPPORTUNITY
The CHALLENGE The RESOLUTION
1 - the Magician
Spirit made manifest

You have the opportunity to manifest your desires. Your sense of personal power is strong. You know how to enter sacred space and bring spiritual energy into the world of matter. You have learned how to focus your will and your passion towards a goal. Your creativity energizes you and blesses those around you. You have the potential to align yourself with the heartbeat of the earth, and to bring forth healing for the planet and all her creatures.
14 - Temperance
Combining opposites

You are being challenged to find the serenity of the middle way between polarities. You are ready to embrace the different parts of your personality, both light and shadow, that combine to make your own unique self. Your inner, spiritual life harmonizes with your life in the workaday world. You have discovered that your whole life is a work of art. You may be in need of healing on a spiritual or physical level, and the Winged One — a descendant of the ancient Bird Goddesses — is here to facilitate that for you. She may also aid you as you move into the role of healer yourself.
10 - the Wheel
Cycles and seasons

Resolution comes with change. One part of a cycle is becoming another. What is passing away in your life right now, and what is coming into being? Where do you stand right now on the Wheel? Can you see that what is happening does not happen in isolation, but is part of a pattern? Sometimes the change that is coming is obvious and striking. More often, it creeps up on us when our attention has been elsewhere — the trees are suddenly bare and we didn't even notice when the first leaves began to fall. So this card also challenges us to be mindful. Keep track of the cycles of the sun and moon, which mirror our own inner cycles. If things seem chaotic and disorderly in your life, focus on the still point of the turning wheel. Remember that with prayer and the magic of sustained focus, all things are possible.

The OPPORTUNITYThe CHALLENGEThe RESOLUTION
20 - Awakening
Getting conscious

You have the opportunity to raise your consciousness and "wake up" in some way. Perhaps you will make a commitment to eating locally-grown organic foods, or perhaps you will begin a new spiritual practice. You now perceive yourself to be part of the global community. You know that your choices and actions affect the entire web of life, and you live your life accordingly, as best you can. As you continue to open yourself up to the life of the Spirit, your heart is filled with compassion and you begin to let go of the judgments and criticisms you have made in the past. To live in alignment with your deepest, most authentic Self is not possible without the help of spiritual allies. It's this knowledge that keeps us humble. You know that your life has purpose and meaning, and this gives you deep joy and peace. Service to others may not have been part of your life in the past, but it is now. When each person gives their own unique gift to the world, the entire fabric of the planet is strengthened and enriched.
10 - the Wheel

You are being challenged to embrace the change that is imminent. One part of a cycle is becoming another. What is passing away in your life right now, and what is coming into being?

If things seem chaotic and disorderly in your life, focus on the still point of the turning wheel. Remember that with prayer and the magic of sustained focus, all things are possible.
13 - Death
Dying and being born

Resolution comes as you accept the fact that something in your life is dying and something else is nearing its time to be born. Take the time that you need to grieve for that which is dying, whether it is a cherished dream, a relationship or a belief system. Don't rush the process or deny all your turbulent feelings. Death isn't pretty; it hurts. It's painful. Whatever dies, is dead, and it will never return again in the same form. But just as the Dark Moon gives way to the New, and Winter gives way to Spring, Rebirth will surely follow Death. When you are ready to let go of grief, you will find yourself emptied out and clean, and ready for the next stage of your journey.
