Reunion and Goose Bumps

6 of cups greenwood tarot reunion
It is Sunday, the moon stands in the zodiac sign Capricorn, waxing (2nd Quater), and the sun is shining this morning.



Six of Cups: Reunion

This is the island depicted in the previous card (and The Salmon). In the golden light of an autumnal sunset, two souls are reunited on an ancient mound, the source of the waters of memory and deep love. Six green cups full of golden liquid float in the pool of knowledge. Two otters, animals of loving and playful affection, hunt nearby. Reunion with an old friend, soulmate or a wise part of oneself. A feeling of inner peace.

Personal Reflection

Drawing this card today fits really well in light of recent events. All that’s left for me to reunite with now is that wiser part of myself. There is nobody else. I’ve been on this planet for nearly 37 years, and I’ve almost given up the search for soulmates… Why has it always been so important for me to find soulmates/my twin flame? Is it because I was abandoned by my mother at the age of three, and left to fend for myself with an abusive fater? On a deeper level, I believe that I chose my parents with a view to never forgetting what is really important in life and it worked for me… but it made me lonely.

Is it possible to find a soulmate on the inner planes?

I’ve heard of others who have been united in a spiritual marriage with their spirit guides. When that happens, are we really being reunited with a wiser and more supportive part of our selves? Will this isolate us even more from the rest of the world, or will it help us in our relationships with others?We’re not meant to be islands to ourselves, to always be strong and lead from our own personal power…


To me, the ultimate evidence that we are programmed to need each other is found in our sense of touch: We cannot tickle ourselves, or give ourselves goose bumps. This has nothing to do with sex, because we can indeed satisfy our own sexual desires. The need for closeness, union and support can be satisfied in deep and committed friendships… Now is the time for me to focus not on what I don’t have, but what I want to attract into my life. There are people out there who share my longing… who are wired the same way… I’ll make the song Utopia by Alanis Morissette my theme song for the next few weeks.

Alanis Morissette – Utopia

we’d gather around all in a room fasten our belts engage in
we’d all slow down rest without guilt not lie without fear
disagree sans judgement
we would stay and respond and expand and include and allow and
forgive and
enjoy and evolve and discern and inquire and accept and admit
and divulge and
open and reach out and speak up
This is utopia this is my utopia
This is my ideal my end in sight
Utopia this is my utopia
This is my nirvana
My ultimate
we’d open our arms we’d all jump in we’d all coast down into
safety nets
we would share and listen and support and welcome be propelled
by passion not
invest in outcomes we would breathe and be charmed and amused by
be gentle and make room for every emotion
we’d provide forums we’d all speak out we’d all be heard we’d
all feel seen
we’d rise post-obstacle more defined more grateful we would heal
be humbled
and be unstoppable we’d hold close and let go and know when to
do which we’d
release and disarm and stand up and feel safe
this is utopia this is my utopia
this is my ideal my end in sight
utopia this is my utopia
this is my nirvana
my ultimate
