Playing Cards draw~

I thought that I would do a 3 card draw with the playing cards today. I LOVE this deck – I’m addicted to the art! It’s Les Chevaliers de la Table Ronde (Knights of the Round Table). Bee sent them to me as a thank you from Somerville’s, along with another nifty Swedish deck which I’ll show on this blog too. Thanks Bee 🙂

Now, I cringed when I saw what I had drawn, and wondered whether to post it or not…but the truth is, it’s not the first message of it’s kind that I’ve been getting lately, so I thought I should just go ahead and document it and see what happens.

 If you click on the photo, you’ll be able to see the Queen’s artwork better –

**The 2 of Spades can bring bad news; it can also refer to restriction or feeling stuck (similar to the 2 of Swords in the Tarot). It can also indicate a break up, or a loss, or a separation.

**The 5 of Swords isn’t much better! it is an emotional card of anger and loss…it’s a severing of ties, a divorce, being alone, lots of pain, tears, grief… The loss of a loved one.

** and the Queen of Hearts describes the woman who is going through all this pain and loss! I’m not usually the Queen of Hearts, unless it’s in my husband’s reading as his “significant other.” This looks like it’s referring to a kind, nurturing woman whose family oriented…I have an idea of who it is to be honest, but I can think of at least 3 Queen of Hearts who are friends of mine.

These cards are basically warning me that there is bad news coming, of a loss for this Queen, one that is filled with upset. I have been having dreams about this as well, so it’s my first inclination that there is going to be a passing soon – hope I’m wrong!! the dreams have been awfully clear though-

or, one other thought; the Queen of Hearts can represent intuition/receptivity; so it may represent my intuitions or gut feelings that there’s about to be sad news…. not quite sure on that..

Trying to lighten the mood, I decided to pull a card from my Conversations with God (Neal Donald Walsh), thinking that it would make it better….and this is what I drew!!!  :

HA! lol – didn’t help matters! lol  but it’s certainly the appropiate card for me at this time. If and when the sh** hits the fan, I will remember this quote.

You know, I can’t help but wonder if I should be looking at the Angel of Death card just a bit differently from yesterday…. yikes.

Angel Oracle Cards ~ Angel of Death and Self Realisation

Today I’ve started my new blog with the Angel Oracle. These cards are absolutely gorgeous…all the illustrations are by the artist Sulamith Wulfing. (Please click on the images to see the artwork more clearly)

I was surprised to see the 2 cards I drew, but as the day progressed I understood better why they appeared.

* Death: The Angels of Death are full of grace and love.

* Self-Realisation: The Self is hidden int he deepest caverns of the heart.

I have been going through a period of trial by fire recently. Everything I ever held dear, or believed has been tested and I have found that through this profound introspection of how I once viewed reality, I have gone through a death of the “Old Me”. The Angel of Death has come and taken the old construct of Spiritsong away, and a new version of me now stands in her place. We all go through profound cycles of change. I have found that in the last year, in my yearning for more understanding, the Universe has brought me many answers. Once the call has been answered, you cannot stand still!

I found it interesting, in looking closer at the Death card, that there are 3 Angels there…the number 3 is the number of manifestation and self-expression. It’s creative imagination allows all things to be possible. The change with the help of the 3 Angels brings about awareness; and seen in the Self Realisation card is an Angel, supporting and almost lifting the sleeping self up…she looks as though she is softly guiding the maiden.

The card Self-Realisation is a hefty one. I am far from being a fully self-realised human being! but what I am aware of is that I have gone through a series of self-realisations in the past year…each one building upon the next, until it becomes apparent that I am not the same person I was.

I think those who have known me for a long time, have seen the change. Interestingly, in the past few days, I have been seriously focused once again, on the works of Jordan Maxwell, a most important metaphysical researcher… (check Google video for a quick peek) and tonight, I just finished the film, Zeitgeist…(not for the faint hearted). There is definitely a shift happening both in the way I view reality, and myself! I plan on not being so critical of myself, and loving “me” a whole lot more:)

This is a funny/odd way to christen this blog, but these were the cards that chose me…….
