Seas of love.
ah... and a cheesy love song from the universal comms team , Robert Plant's The Honeydrippers " Seas of love"
and those words... "I want to tell you
how much I love you"
How gorgeous, to know that we are truly loved, in a sea of love in fact!
I have no idea,as usual how this is going to add meaning to our cards today, but I trust the meaning will unfold.
Our first card today is the queen of cups ( cups representative of the water element and of feelings and emotions).
Our deeply intuitive queen, leads from her heart, she is love and compassion personified.What we see above the water is only a glimpse of the depth of her knowing.
We see a beautiful Discus fish in the picture.A fish symbolises fertility, feelings, creativity, rebirth, transformation, abundance, serenity, intelligence, happiness, strength, and endurance.
It Connects us with the water element, it represents the deeper awareness of the unconsciousness or our higher self.
It suggests we need to dive deep into the seas of our intuition now, connect with our emotional intelligence to bring about heartfelt transformation.
Our second card today is the knight of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and of manifestation)
Today I'm instantly drawn to the floral patterns on the horses saddle. It makes me think of the ancient saddle cloths of the Kazakhs.
The Kazakhs,nomads throughout history, showed an ability to adapt to numerous outer factors or challenges.
They were involved in the transportation and trade of silk in ancient times, through the what was known as "The great silk way", which crossed Kazakhstan and the Central Asia, connected Western and Eastern civilizations and
influenced the improvement of inter relational dialogues and culture.
Ideas, knowledge, religious beliefs and goods
transferred through this nomadic way of life, over a period of a thousand years,this of course inevitably influenced the Kazakhstan mentality, teaching the Kazakhs to be tolerant to other cultural customs and traditions.
Perhaps our knight is pointing us towards considering how we plant seeds now for a later harvest, or as the well known quote suggests " We reap what we sow".
How are we learning from our historical journey? How does that now influence our onward journey? How can we be more loving, compassionate and tolerant of those who walk along beside us on this journey of life?
Our final card today is the king of cups ( wow another water element court card) We see the king deep in mediation, not unlike our queen before him.He really does lead from the heart. The fish appears once more, along with the starfish.
The Starfish is a universal and celestial symbol of infinite divine love. In addition to love, the Starfish also emanates the energies of inspiration, guidance, brilliance, intuition, and vigilance, with its connection to the stars.
It is important for us to "follow our own star" to what we desire right now. Know that everything is within reach. Our heart will always recognise the appropriate action.
In the background we see a sailboat, symbolising journey and adventure. They also are associated with being carried along by the “breath of life,” as its primary form of momentum is gained through the wind in its sails.
The Sailing symbolism also represents a Spiritual Voyage, with the water embodying the source of all life, the embodiment of Spirituality, the Spiritual Wisdom of the Soul’s journey.
A new beginning is unfolding, a time of exploring a deeper level of Consciousness it would seem. A deeper more loving connection with one another.
I am reminded now of the song lyrics of a famous Bee Gees song.....
"How deep is your love, how deep is your love
How deep is your love?
I really mean to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breaking us down when they all should let us be
We belong to you and me
I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest, darkest hour
You're my savior when I fall
And you may not think I care for you
When you know down inside that I really do
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love, how deep is your love ?"
