Happy Almost~Coronation Day! (For those who are looking forward to it) I was perusing some of the Coronation offerings on Etsy yesterday & came upon these little guys & since I won't be on here next week, I wanted to post them today. You might not SEE them next Saturday but they'll be there! :)
I have the cutest Little Library around the corner from me (actually, maybe it was constructed by those two guys!) There are times when it's filled with absolute magic & other times it's filled with magic intended for someone else...and one night last week I was walking my dogs...actually, they were racing & pulling me along!...and I noticed it was newly stuffed with books. While Elfie & Geldof pulled me past in the dark, I tried to see if there was anything I like. My eyes immediately fell upon the book upon which I've placed the Queen of Scrolls from the Chrysalis Tarot (my eyes fell upon it MINIMALLY, as in I liked the the look of the spine of the book & the moss green built~in ribbon bookmark I could see!) . As you can see, she's called the Weaver. I usually Iike to place the cards I draw on something pretty before I take a picture of them. The first thing I thought of was this book & the Weaver was already doing her work! I say that because before I drew this card, I asked to be shown a card that will provide an answer to someone at any time that they may come upon it here. The Queen of Scrolls (Queen of Swords in a standard deck) is a Libran lady but also represents all 3 of the Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) and as such, has communication within the sphere of life that she rules ~ all forms of communication writing, speaking...any way at all we may be communicated with. As soon as Elfie, Geldof, & I were under a streetlight, I looked at the book in my hand. It's called "Morning Leaves: Reflections on Loss, Grief, and Connection". The author, Laing F. Rikkers, lost her sister when her sister was only in her 40's, to obstructive sleep apnea. Her sister didn't even know she had it. One of the only ways Laing Rikkers made it through is by spending time in nature ~ she felt peaceful there. This book is a collection of poems she wrote about particular trees & flowers she spent time beside and what they communicated to her. It also has really beautiful artwork by a lady named Kelly Leahy Radding, often featuring owls, which I love. I completely relate to the feelings Laing writes about while spending time beside trees, streams, etc., and thinking about the pain of her loss.
So maybe someone will stumble upon this post while they're going through the pain of loss and this book will help them. Or maybe this story can help communicate my belief that everything in life is there waiting to be someone's tarot card. On any day when you're looking for an answer about something and you're really thinking about that, know that your thoughts are heard & felt by someone you love & have lost ~ it could be a person or an animal. Somewhere in that day or days to come, you may reach for something quickly without really being able to see what it is. Take it home and spend some time with it. It may provide answers to you or simply bring peace to your mind. Magical things to help us with what we most need help with are coming to us all the time & we just need to be open to the different ways they might arrive.
The Weaver connects your life to your destiny. The Weaver/Queen of Scrolls symbolizes the highest state of human consciousness. She helps to bring you peace in times of chaos, trial, & tribulation. She sees what exists in the spaces...she looks not so much at physical things but what they bring, what they're communicating, and what the energy is that's surrounding them. Somewhere in here lies your answer. I hope it brings you peace. And I hope everyone has a Happy Coronation Day!
