Strength

Strength (Leo) corresponds to the Heart Chakra. The main meaning of this card is the triumph of loving kindness and gentle confidence over the drives and quirks of the ego. Although Strength is a card of strength and emotional maturity, it also has a childlike, sunny and playful quality. It is a card of great vitality, passion, generosity and creativity. Strength trusts that she is in the spotlight for a reason. She is fabulous and she knows it. The positive aspect of...

The Lovers

Today, I learned the true meaning of The Lovers when meeting the gaze of a young girl of about 11 with learning disability. Her eyes shone brightly, unburdened by discernment and judgment. Like two suns, they burnt with love straight from Source… and I felt naked like Adam in the Garden of Eden when God looked him up after he had tasted the forbidden fruit.

The Empress

Every single person in my birth family is a 3 Empress Life Path/Soul Card. She is deeply embedded in my genetic make-up as well as in my personality. The Empress breathes through me every second of every day of my life… So rather than describing her, I decided to channel her: Don’t call me fickle. I know I may appear that way to you, just like nature with its changing seasons or the vast seas with their sudden storms. The truth is I am life and life is change....
