I hope you have all had a good week! Always busy, I know! You may have all been wondering about my venture into stone readings, the good news is that I have developed a system that I am happy with but I am considering different ways of presenting those readings as they are not really conducive to photo and written form. I am thinking they would work better in video format so I’ll be continuing to work on that project. I am also happy to announce that I have been taking a class in Crystal Reiki which has really opened me up to new levels in working with my stones and crystals. That has been very exciting and inspiring!
In the meantime, I will be choosing a stone at random from my set at the beginning of each reading to set the “tone” for the reading.
Now for our reading today:
The stone today is the Rainforest Jasper. In my set this stone is assigned to represent “home” and all things regarding the place we call “home”. The energy of this stone is connected to Earth as our home, it is about all things green and growing and represents healing Earth Energy. This stone would be good to carry if you need to bring new growth energy into your life, it is also good for healing both matters of the heart and physical healing. This is a perfect stone for our Tarot reading today as you will see!
There is big change, going on. New and exciting! As you can see we have several of the same cards that we had last week. The first thing that really jumps out here is that we have three pages. This is definitely an indication of new and fresh energy. New bursts of trust, love and creativity! In between trust and love, we have the Death Card, this indicates a huge shift, a whole new cycle. Remember with the Death card there is also rebirth. We leave behind our old way of thinking to give birth to something new. In the second row we have the Wheel of Fortune, so we have three pages and two major arcana cards. This is a major life transition, after being a long time in the dark, the wheel of life turns and we are again springing into new beginnings. The Knight of Swords looks like a dark and ominous fellow in this deck but he actually represents cutting through the deadwood to make room for new growth. He is keen, and with his sharp intellect he sees things clearly and is the expert in his field. He knows what he is talking about. The other side of this knight is that he can be somewhat detached emotionally, but considering his close proximity to the Page of Cups who is very emotionally connected, I don’t see this as a problem at this time. This Knight is all about learning and seeing clearly. The Page of Wands at the bottom indicates this fresh burst of creativity and enthusiasm. When pages show up they represent the embodiment of the suit and are much like Aces in that way. They tell you to BE that way. BE courageous, BE confident.
Just for extra measure I chose another card to “sum things up”, so to speak. This is the Eight of Cups. This card is about leaving things behind and saying goodbye. It’s time for a fresh start, it’s time to say goodbye to old outmoded way of thinking. This is a whole new beginning! (Combine this with our stone and I can’t help but think this reading is for someone who is moving into a new home and starting a new life!)
