Book Teaser! ~ Defining the Elusive Queen of Cups

Book Teaser!!… I’m still plugging away at the chapter on the Court Cards. How well do you really understand the Queen of Cups? Here’s a clip from my book:
_________________________________

The Dark Side ~

The Queen of cups walks through life in a haze and fog of dreamy unawareness to the physical world, caught up in the ethereal, the unseen, the spirit side of existence. She can often tell you the innermost unspoken true feelings of someone she was conversing with but not remember what they were wearing. When she does plant her feet in the earth, she doesn’t connect with the physical world in the way most people do. She can hear voices within the wind in the trees; she can see the aura of plants; the wisps of magical beings in the garden; the thoughts and emotions of animals. To the mundane world, this Queen may often appear mentally fragile and on the edge. In reality, this is her reality, and sometimes her curse, she can see and hear and feel things that most people can’t.

Not many people will truly understand the Queen of cups, and some may even dislike her, though they may not understand why. There will be those who are disturbed at the nuances and unspoken connections often misunderstood by individuals who lack this sensitivity, and there will be those perhaps frightened by how easily she walks through the spiritual realm, so matter-of-factly, as though it were completely normal, when to most people it is not. She will always be the outsider, viewed with suspicion and sometimes disdain by the community around her, the clubs and cliques of society. At her most extreme, even the people who share her inner knowledge and experiences will find her bewildering, and her place at the outside edge of communal inclusion will be complete.

Her greatest downfall is the ability to lose herself, not being true to herself, in search of love and commitment. Relationships will be difficult for her. She will strive to connect with someone who can connect with her on a myriad of levels and meet her on her turf, as part of her inner world. Her search may prove futile, but it won’t be from lack of trying. She is artistic, creative, and wonderfully fluid, and she will use these abilities to try and transform herself to fit into the mold, to be what her suitor wants her to be, to fit into their life and their mind and their heart perfectly, in fairy tale fashion. In the midst of this hopelessly impossible endeavor, this Queen will often amputate the best parts of herself.

Spiritual Feminism ~ What’s it all about?

What’s it all about?… It’s about embracing the feminine divine.  It’s about matriarchal divinity and the mysteries revealed.  It’s about connecting with the feminine aspect of Spirit.  It’s about connecting with 45 goddesses from around the world!  — Cultural Appropriation… Bring it on!  I’m an American; I’m a blend of numerous cultures and peoples with every generational step back I take… from parents, to grandparents, to great-grandparents, great-great grandparents, and beyond.  It’s all about learning how to incorporate Spirit into our lives; it’s about learning to love ourselves and feed our egos with healthy affirmations.  It’s about self-empowerment; it’s about learning to empower and support each other!

I stumbled upon this information by accident today when I was updating my FB pages.  The numbers at Amazon are in a constant state of flux and change, so I don’t really keep track of this information intentionally, but I might pay closer attention now.  This book has its own Facebook page (as all of my books do):  https://www.facebook.com/thespiritualfeminist?ref=hl

“So many people throughout my life have told me who I am, what I must do, what I can’t do, what I have to complete, and what I will never be able to accomplish, and then I met the Goddess.” (From The Spiritual Feminist) …The Spiritual Feminist empowers today’s modern woman through the Goddess, connecting her to ancient matriarchal divinity and spiritual practices which invoke this energy.

 

Today’s Inspiration ~ The Sun

The major arcana card, The Sun, reeks of happiness; but sometimes this happiness comes at a price, and sometimes it comes after a long period of intense seeking and personal revelations. There is virtually no fairy tales in real life with happy ever after endings and stagnant heroes and heroines who remain frozen in one perfect moment of time and space.   And this is not the artificial kind of “happiness” that the tarot card, The Sun, represents. It has more depth than that.

A moment of happiness snatched from the teeth of sorrow is much more profound, with a much larger impact on the human psyche, than a life lived in one eternal “Leave it to Beaver” episode.   And that’s what this tarot card is all about.
