The Fool’s Journey – The High Priestess

fullsizerender

‘2’ is the number of balance. The pillars represent the pillars at the Temple of Solomon, with the third pillar representing spirituality and the psyche. The High Priestess is the third pillar.  The cross symbolises the 4 Earthly elements, as when you fold it, it will form a cube representing the physical form- the form in which we all reside in. The Priestess’s headdress is the Headdress of Iris, the mother goddess. The new moon represents new beginnings and the water at the bottom of her robe represents emotions and consciousness. The moon influences waters symbolising our interconnectedness of Spirit and Earth.

She holds the Tora containing the natural laws of the Universe. She sits in front of a veil. This reminds us that we must look behind the veil, or look within ourselves. On the other side are your true feelings and intuition. You must ask yourself: what will I find on the other side? When you look within yourself with open arms and an open heart you find balance, and most importantly, you find answers.

Oracle – Abundance

oracle-reading

Gold is representative of our power to choose. We’ve got options and it is up to us to come to a decision. Be careful, as your choice will be brilliant or foolish (fool’s gold). Always remember that if you don’t like your initial choice, you can always make another one. Furthermore, keep in mind that sometimes it takes a little sacrifice in order to reach a little abundance. The border of this Oracle card is also yellow, which is representative of the Solar Plexus – the chakra of choice and decision-making.

The Legend: “Inside a magical treasure chest, gold coins swap stories. One coin tells how a man foolishly dropped her down a drain, then cried instead of trying to get her out. Later, an enterprising little girl used string and chewing gum to fish her out. The coins remembered how the girl saved them, along with many others, and eventually brought a house. As all coins desire to be well spent, they agree that she was indeed a wise person.” Tori Hartman

The message: be mindful of yourself using your financial situation as a reason why you cannot live life to the fullest. You are in control of your own abundance.

Oracle – Trust Yourself

img_2770

Why do we so often question are abilities? Why are we always our own worst critics? We all have the the tools and power within us to make it through any situation that is thrown our way and it is time for us to start believing in our infinite potential.

If you have come across this post today, then there is either a family or project issue that is in need of some guidance and direction. Because everyone has their own unique opinion on how they think something should work, democracy isn’t always practical. It is time for you to put your foot down and to be assertive while also sending blessings to all of those involved. It is possible to be firm, yet kind. Dig deep to call upon your courage to guide you and ask the Universe for assistance.

Love and Light,

Rainn

Oracle – Walk Away

img_2772

Sometimes the hardest things for us to do is to walk away, but this guidance exists inside the inner wisdom of all of us. A lot of life’s stresses is others bringing the drama to us when the only thing we wanted to do is get through the day, but sometimes it’s brave to look at these kinds a situations as lessons to be learned instead of nuisances. Walking away from a conflict is a sign of strength, not a sign of weakness.

If you have come across this post today, know that there is nothing to be gained by fighting in this instance. The Universe has placed this obstacle in your path, not to test you, but to help you learn and grow. It’s okay to walk away and bless everyone behind you.

Love and Light,

Rainn

Food for Thought – The Importance of Black People in Tarot

I was so excited to find myself a beautifully melanated deck of Tarot cards. When I first started reading Tarot, I found myself annoyed with the lack of diversity. I was so aggravated in fact that I found a brown colored pencil and started coloring things in. I still was unsatisfied, because it felt ‘unauthentic’ and went out to purchase some decks. Next thing I knew I was swimming in a sea of Tarot and Oracle decks, because I was so obsessed with finding one black person! I came across the Vision Quest tarot deck and used that for a while because it had Native Americans and it was, ‘as close as I could get,’ but I still couldn’t relate to the deck. When you can’t relate to the deck you are learning with I feel that it makes development more challenging and time consuming. How could I relate to the struggles of Becky with blonde hair and blue eyes when I was a black woman with nappy hair from New York?

We are making strides in the world, but we are still behind and the New Age and Tarot communities. Out of all of the decks out there, this is the only fully melanated deck I’ve seen our heard about. It’s important for decks to show people of all shapes, colors, and sizes. If I can’t relate to the decks, how do I expect my clients to relate to their readings? img_2763
