Featured Card of the Day – Desire – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

– What do you desire most?
– How much do you want it?
– Desire compels action

Card Meaning

To desire – to wish or long for something. To lust or crave is to desire. In simple terms, desire means to want something. Desire is the fourth influence on choice, and when it appears in your reading it asks that you explore your desires and ask what it is that you want – and how much you want it.

What are you willing to do in order to achieve your desires?

Is desire the root of all suffering? Many religious texts state that desire is something that corrupts humanity and blinds us to our true purpose. However, desire is the state of mind that compels you to act and do whatever you feel is necessary in order to fulfill that desire, because you know that you will feel pleasure or be rewarded for fulfilling that desire.

Featured Card of the Day – Queen of Water – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Loving, Compassionate, Empathetic, Sensitive, Vulnerable, Romantic, Intuitive, Emotional Honesty

Key Phrases

– Trust your feelings and senses
– Look beyond the surface
– A bright and positive outcome
– To show vulnerability is to show strength
– Are you overextending emotionally?
– Be the embodiment of love
– Withdrawing love as punishment
– Use your common sense

Card Meaning

The Queen of Water symbolizes a gentle, empathetic soul, who possesses a keen sense of intuition. She is loving, compassionate, and always kind. She knows when something is wrong, when a friend is hurting and in need of comfort or counsel. She is naturally in tune with her emotions, and the emotions of those around her. It is this natural connection and gentleness that draws people to her.

She is empathetic, and would never consider being deliberately cruel or unkind. She is generous and giving of herself to a fault. Only by having, and maintaining, healthy boundaries does this watery queen protect herself from becoming drained.

Her ability to intuitively ‘see’ and ‘know’ is her greatest strength. She looks beyond the surface to what lies within the subconscious, seeing the emotions of old that influence the present. She can sense the mood of a moment or the undercurrents that flow through a room full of people, and, because she can read other’s emotions with ease, she can often distinguish truth from falsehood.

This kbnowledge empowers. With it, the ever-romantic Queen of Water can often offer the perfect solution, particularly in matters of the heart. She believes in the power of love, but is also wise, and knows that relationships need to be nurtured and maintained, that emotional honesty is a key, as is a willingness to share our feelings.

When we share our true feelings we make ourselves vulnerable, but to be willing to do so shows both courage and strength.

Is this Queen a part of your nature? Is there someone in your life who needs or would benefit from your help and loving support?

Or is it you who needs to seek out a like energy in your life, for healing, or guidance?

When the Queen of Water appears in your cards she signifies a very affirming and positive energy, for she is the epitome of love in all of its forms. Take heart, and know that bright days are ahead.

Featured Card of the Day – The Youth – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Adventure, New Horizons, Excitement, Independence, Freedom, Rebellion, Impulsiveness, Loyalty, Compromise

Key Phrases

– Quest for adventure
– Live in the moment
– Action without thought
– Defying tradition and conformity
– Greater risk, greater reward
– Assert your independence
– Embrace individuality
– A new direction
– Freedom from fear and doubts
– A time of conflict and turmoil
– Communication and compromise
– Address desires

Card Meaning

Sweet-faced and beguiling, the Youth has left the security of home and hearth without a backward glance. He is alone, but confident in the knowledge that a loving and supportive family will be there if he has need of them.

On a quest for adventure and discovery, he seeks the excitement of the new and unknown in distant lands. Following whispers and rumor, he takes risks with little thought or care. His choice is to live in the moment. The past is left behind, while thoughts of the future rest only as far as his next journey. Every adventure gives him a greater knowledge of the world and his place in it.

Believing himself both immortal and infallible, he often acts spontaneously, using his charm and enthusiasm to win him favor and release him from strife. He rebels against sage advice to use restraint or caution. As far as the Youth is concerned, the greater the risk, the more rewarding the outcome.

The only loyalty he shows is to those companions who journey with him. Those who are loyal to the quest will have his loyalty in return, while those who seek to curb and restrict him will be met with resistance. Those who share his passions and interests are ‘right’, while those who do not are ‘wrong’. There are no shades of gray. The Youth sees all in black and white.

The Youth also seeks the freedom to find his own answers. Tradition be damned; life is too short to follow in another’s footsteps, and do things their way. The Youth will do things his way without thought for the consequences. His concern is for today. Tomorrow can take care of itself.

Featured Card of the Day – 4 of Air – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Structure, Routine, Order, Patterns, Discipline, Oraganization, Understanding, Productivity

Key Phrases

– Order your environment
– Banish clutter. Clean house
– Create structure in your day
– Follow a routine
– Keep a time budget
– If you truly want something, you will make time for it
– Limit distraction and time wasters
– Weed out bad habits
– Remove negative influences

Card Meaning

The Four of Air symbolizes the importance of ordering your environment and giving your day structure, especially if you have specific goals or projects you wish to perform, and complete.

Routines are our daily habits – the things that we do on a daily basis – given structure and order. Following our routine moves us from one part of our day to the next. Having a routine can provide us with a level of security born of consistency.

By establishing order in our environment, we also add to that sense of security. When everything has its place, we can be confident that it will be there when we need it. We won’t waste hours of our day looking for something that has been lost in the clutter and mess that we often surround ourselves with.

A cluttered and chaotic environment can give rise to a cluttered and disorganized mind, a mind that is unable to follow a routine that is conducive to productivity.

The Four of Air suggests establishing order in your life by removing the clutter. Establish a pattern of regular cleaning. Put things back where they belong after use so they are there the next time you need them. Keep your paperwork in order. Even make a place in your life for the unexpected and unanticipated. That way, even chaos does not have too much of an impact on your peace of mind, or prevent you from doing what needs to be done.

Featured Card of the Day – 11 of Water: ¬†Emotion/Intellect – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Emotion/Intellect, Love, Fear, Expression, Suppression, Head, Heart, Ease, Disease

Key Phrases

– Influence of emotional disharmony
– Both love and fear motivate
– Is fear the more dominant force?
– Unvoiced emotions must be expressed
– Address unhealthy imbalances
– Suppressed emotion creates disease
– Seek a productive means of emotional release
– Be proactive and mindful of your emotions

Card Meaning

The Eleven of Water is a balancing and realignment card that addresses any emotional disharmony that may be influencing your choices and environment. It also represents the need for us to see the whole and how an imbalance can affect it.

Love and fear…how many times have you heard someone say that a choice or action was made from a place of fear, or was born of a person’s insecurities and doubts, or was born of love? When we are attacked by others, we may react and retaliate because we are angry and afraid, but we may also act because we have love for ourselves and wish to address an injustice and prevent further injustice. We may choose not to take a risk or make changes in our lives because we are afraid of an unknown future – but we may also choose not to take a risk that may alter our lives because we love the life we already have. We may be plagued with doubts, but we can also be blinded by love.

Featured Card of the Day – Wisdom – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Knowledge, Understanding, Awareness, Self-Knowledge, Illumination, Introspection, Withdrawal, Insight, Common Sense

Key Phrases

– You are here to become wise
– Knowledge does not make you wise
– Wisdom is learning from one’s mistakes
– Apply knowledge, logic, and common sense
– Learn from more than just books
– Seek out your elders
– Time to break a cycle
– Wisdom is understanding
– Wisdom is loving the whole
– Know and love your shadow
– You have unlimited potential
– The road ahead leads to many destinations

Card Meaning

The second of the eight primary reasons for being is to acquire wisdom. While a person can have great knowledge, if they have no understanding, that knowledge will not make them wise. An individual may possess a great capability to retain facts and information, but lack the ability to truly process what they’ve learned. Some say wisdom cannot be learned from a book. It is something that is learned through experience. True wisdom is born of understanding our experiences.

Wisdom stems from learning from one’s successes and mistakes, one’s trials and adventures, one’s gains and losses. Wisdom is born of awareness and discernment that allows you to judge the best course of action. In most situations, wisdom is the application of knowledge, logic, and common sense.

Wisdom is the synthesis of external information acquired via personal experiences and learning. It comes from using logic, emotion, and intuition to analyze and understand, to discern the truth, to grow in awareness, and then use that knowledge to find our place and purpose within the universe, and to live a good and productive life.
