This spread is right on time for me. I have been returning to projects that I’m passionate about, and overall figuring out wha to have space for in my life.
My intention was to record a video of The Herbcrafter’s Tarot this weekend, but I didn’t exactly have the time or space for that. It’s coming though!
Instead I spent part of my day working on Healing Single Mothers. Now, let’s dive into this spread!
The spread was created by Kim of Abundant Life Tarot, inspired by a reading which included the Four of Water in the deck and other Oracle cards.
The following spread was created by Kim of Abundant Life Tarot:
- What has become stagnant in your life zapping your energy?
- What are ways you can replenish your emotional reserves, which can lead to gratitude, inspiration, and passion?
- What area in your life have you been giving too much?
- What area of your life have you not been giving much at all?
- What are you passionate about and what can you do to bring more energy towards it?
Tarot Cards Pulled
For this reading I pulled the Four of Water from my deck. This card features Mint. Which is refreshing!
I am excited to dive into this reading to see what guidance I receive about my enery and passion.
What has become stagnant in your life zapping your energy?
Eight of air ~ licorice
Interesting choice for licorice. I do not like the licorice candies, but have enjoyed it in blends of herbal tea. The Eight of Air is a card that typically represents self limiting beliefs and holding yourself back.
I feel that with this card, for so many different reasons. I can overthink things and move into anxiety, worry, and doubt FOR NO REASON! I had a Human Design reading and one of the things that I learned is because of my open centers, I can easily move into overthinking and taking on others ideas to the point of being stuck.
It’s important for me to work at devloping my mindset and releasing unproductive thoughts or feelings. If I don’t catch my mind drifting to the upside down, then I find myself wasting time or being confused and it doesn’t have to be that way.
Lately I’ve experienced A LOT of changes in my life and have been feeling a little stuck. This card is telling me it’s time to set myself free, trust in myself and release the mind fuck.
One of the beautiful things about Licorice, is that its healing for the vocal chords. The tea blend I experienced it in was for soothing the throat. This card speaks of being kind to yourself and speaking your truth!
What are ways you can replenish your emotional reserves, which can lead to gratitude, inspiration, and passion?
temperance ~ camellia + Seven of water ~ Birch
Two cards jumped out when shuffling for this question. Temperance is such a beautiful card of finding balance within and I feel the Seven of Water (that showed up in last week’s Spiritual Path reading) is telling me to choose, or make this a priority.
My spiritual practices help me to replenish myself. Many of these practices are also wellness practices. My spirituality is something that I live and desire to devote myself too. I am being called to honor rituals that will replenish me.
This weekend I was sooo unsettled, and was reminded to reach for my essential oils. These have been one of the most powerful healing tools in my medicine bag. I reached for my oils, did some breathing excercises and journaled.
Both cards speak of ritual, magic, and divination. I feel this is about leaning on my beliefs and practices to tend to my needs.
What area in your life have you been giving too much?
Adelita of Air ~ oregano
As a heavy Air sign, the suit and energy of Air moves me. Looking at this card with the ritual bowl being prepared I feel I’ve been focused on everything else, except self care. So much has been taking up space in my brain that I’ve been spending time thinking instead of doing the things that will bring me joy and nourish my mind, body, and soul.
Adelita’s in this deck represent warrior energy. Adelita of Air is about speaking your truth and accepting your body. This is a very deep pull for me. Womb healing and wellness as well as overall physical fitness have been HUGE themes for me.
I’ve experienced a lot of trauma, and these are ways I’m tapping in to heal. My past relationship drained me and I feel that I’ve been disconnected from my being. This card is calling me to honor my physical body, especially my yoni and womb space.
What area of your life have you not been giving much at all?
Curandera of fire ~ damania, reversed
This card showing up reversed was a big sign to pay attention here. She has shown up in my previous readings. I see a theme here about ritual and devotion. I believe DEVOTION will be my word for 2023.
I hear you! I will begin to shift my focus and give my time, energy, and attention to my own practices. I have been saying that in this season of my life I am giving ALL of ME to ME! I’ve spent so much time worrying about others needs, putting them before my own to my own detriment.
I am taking all of that passion, drive, love, and attention and directing it inwards!
What are you passionate about and what can you do to bring more energy towards it?
Hija of fire ~ california poppy
This card is all about creativity! I love creating which is how I ended up with 2 podcasts and a bunch of other amazing ideas. It’s time for me to channel this energy like the young hands in the Hija of Fire, so I can get clear on where I want to direct my energy. I also see this as beginning my devotional practices, that will lead me to evolving into the Curandera of Fire.
I’m passionate about many things and sometimes stop or get confused. It’s time to release that and just allow the passion to lead me. You can’t get it wrong when you’re being creative!
What is next for me?
This reading truly solidifies what I explored with the Seven of Water last week. It along with many other cards that I’ve worked with from The Herbcrafter’s deck made an apperance in this reading. The same message is being echoed and I have futher confirmation that THIS IS MY TIME!
The days of giving so much of me to others are long over. I’m entering a beautiful phase of life that is filled with love and sweet tending.
It’s time for me to be devoted to myself, my practices, my goals, dreams, and all that I desire. I receive this!
