This morning I decided to draw two cards for the coming new year just for an overall view; a kind of theme.
The first card would provide the question or the situation and the second card would be an advice or an elaboration for the first card. I've used the original Rider Waite for this mini reading.
The first card I got was the Four of Cups. This card is asking me to consider when I feel really content. Is it because of the beauty of these three cups, or is it about the content or is it perhaps because I have the time to sit beneath a tree to relax? But what about the fourth cup? Do I need it on order to be more happy and content? Does this cup hold the promise of perfect everlasting happiness and joy. It is something I need or just want because it has been made available?
This card has brought up a lot of timely questions because My word for 2015 will be “Simplicity”:
Trying to be happy and content with the small things, feeling gratitude for the daily events and also trying not to be not so easily influenced by YouTube and blogs etc. as to what I “need to have” in order to be happy J.
Of course there is so much more to this word then what I can write in this post for now. I will have an entire year to further explore the depth of its meaning.
The second card is the Magician. The first thing I noticed were the four tools on his table which is all he needs for making his magic happen. If I would tap into this archetype I would find my inner strength would be enough to be fulfilled and happy. It is in myself where my true power resides. Not even in the tools in front of me. Whatever is in my three cups or in the fourth; they are merely things to enjoy but not necessary to become fully who I am supposed to be.
It sounds good to me and hopefully I will remember this when the next “temptation” comes along
