The Daily Draw: Two of Cups, Reversed

The Daily Draw: Two of Cups, Reversed

Try a Little Tenderness The primary energy of the two of cups is emotional connection. The connection people feel in a strong, loving relationship is an obvious example, as the RWS card depicts it. It could just as easily be a connection between friends, colleagues, even groups of people depending on the context. But today … Continue reading

The Daily Draw: Two of Cups, Reversed

The two of Cups Reversed tells me that today is a day when awareness, patience, and diplomacy are called for in interpersonal relationships. Mercury is still retrograde. Miscommunication and misunderstanding can occur easily. You might say one thing and the other person might hear something quite different, partially due to their own internal filters and … Continue reading

The Daily Draw: The Lovers

Well, this looks a lot more promising for lovers than yesterday’s draw (Two of Cups, reversed). In fact, could we get more literal?

Be Yourself

Be Yourself

One of the greatest challenges we face in our development is self-discovery, finding out who we are, being ourselves. We start off innocent children. Inevitably, we encounter people who want us to conform, beginning a power struggle that will follow us throughout our lives at home, school, church, peers, the workplace, etc. Socially, the world seems … Continue reading

Be True to You

We all have a desire to love and be loved. We want to share our lives with someone, not live them alone. We want to have the kind of intimacy where someone thoroughly knows us deep down inside and we them.  Yet, in an effort to find that special someone, we often try to pretend … Continue reading

Healing a Post-Marriage Relationship

There’s a couple I know who divorced a few years ago, separated over ten years ago, and have several children together. They both have good relationships with their children.  The couple relate to each other by avoiding each other as much as possible. When they first split, there was a mixed ability to have reasonable … Continue reading

On Letting Go of Past Pain

There is a past relationship that sometimes makes me swell with anger and hurt. We split over ten years ago, and the pain doesn’t dominate my life like it once did, but on those occasions when it does come it’s like being caught in the tide, with a breaker rolling over me – it’s overwhelming. … Continue reading
