I use tarot and oracle cards as tools for reflection and contemplation. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

Are You Sick and Tired of being Sick and Tired?

From the Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot, the Queen of Cups; from the Sacred Geometry Oracle, the "Double Square:"
       The image Ceccoli has created for her Queen of Cups brings to mind two of her traits. She can be overly empathetic to the point where the boundary between her emotions and other people's feelings gets fuzzy. Yet she is a highly intuitive woman; she gets a nudge to act before there is any physical evidence to see. If she can prevent herself from being an emotional sponge, she can be very helpful by offering guidance formed from her perceptive insights.
     There are three important root relationships in sacred geometry: the square roots of 2 (generation), 3 (relation), and 5 (regeneration). The double square shows the square root of 5; symbolically it means transcending its own limits and opening to new possibilities. Transformation allows for these potential opportunities. As I get older, I've accepted that if I'm tired of dealing with the same old stuff over and over, I need to make a change. The queen's empathy and intuition can lead me to react emotionally or with deliberate purpose. I know too well where reaction instead of action will lead, so doing something different seems like a wiser choice.


  1. That Ceccoli card is especially brilliant! And interesting that the sacred geometry names risk as the downside of regeneration (or am I reading that wrong?) Sometimes it's hard to break out of our old emotional patterns, but always well worth it, I think :)

    1. I love this version of the Queen of Cups too. :) The "risk" is the reverse reading of the card; but as you said, well worth it!
