“My dear if you could give me a cup of tea to clear my muddle of a head I should better understand your affairs.” – Charles Dickens, Mrs. Lirriper’s Legacy
This week I’m reading with the sTEAmpunk Tea Leaf Fortune Telling Cards by Karin Dalton-Smith published by Animal Dreaming Publishing. This is a delightful and excellent working deck which won two 2019 CARTA awards from the International Tarot Foundation. Here is a link to Karin’s Etsy site: TeaWithKarin
I shuffled and randomly pulled four cards, Heart, Castle and Eye for our message this week with one additional shadow card from the bottom of the deck, the Book.
The Heart and Castle are auspicious cards when they come together which speak to us of success around passions especially in our work or careers that we love. In relationships, whether they are with lovers, friends or people in our work sphere, the Heart and Castle show the potential of a successful relationship. The Arrow on the Heart is not pointed to a specific card, so look to the past for lessons that can be helpful in this present relationship. Venus is in Retrograde until June 24th so this is a time to step back and look at what we truly value, are passionate about and be in tune with how we communicate, asking for what we need and really listening to others. This helps us understand relationships much better. In finance, pay attention to not only our short-term goals but long-term ones also. Don’t let emotions alone rule your decisions. The Eye whispers to us to pay attention to our intuition this week in all matters of life. This is a card of protection. Take time to see beyond appearances.
The Shadow card is the Book,. The planet Mercury is in its shadow period beginning its Retrograde in Cancer on June 17th. The Book brings us more information throughout the week to add to our decisions, direction and something more to consider. There may be additional studying or curiosity needed for our passion project or in relationships. Open and compassionate communication can open up hearts. For finances, looking at our assets, which is just not money but other assets, our talents, skills, background and the ability to tap into the collective unconscious which can aid us pursuing our dreams. Contracts and agreements need to be carefully looked over and protected this week and the weeks to come.
It’s my Mother’s Birthday on June 18th and in remembrance, her Fan broach with little twinkling sapphires and pearls is pinned to my reading cloth. Sapphire is a stone of wisdom and prophecy bringing good fortune and protection for those wearing it. Pearls signify sincerity, good luck and wisdom gained through experience; inspires integrity and purity. Our Fan’s message is be curious and flirt with the things that call to us this week. And most of all, don’t hid behind the shadows, be Seen.
Big love in the week ahead!
