Oracle: Your Gaian Tarot Reading

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.

Oracle: Your Gaian Tarot Reading

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
Cycles and seasons

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? 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.
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.
