Pearl and Queen of Wands – Meditation Circle
This week, during our Meditation Circle….
Psy IQ topic – Winter Solstice
Crystal – Pearl
Tarot Card – Queen of Wands
Psy IQ Topic – Winter Solstice
Celebrated over 19th – 23rd of June, Yule (rhymes with jewel) means wheel! This season celebrates (and begins with) the Winter Solstice – the longest night of the year – when the Sun God is reborn. The Goddess is in her aspect of The Great Mother and she rests from giving birth. Yule is a time of reflection – to give thanks for the returning Sun. A time for cleansing yourself of anything preventing you from growing/moving forward. This means Yule is an ideal time for planning fresh beginnings and welcoming new energies. It is a time of good–will towards all others.
Crystal Connections – This week’s crystal is Pearl
Pearls are unique among gemstones as they come from the depths of the sea rather than the Earth. They require no special cutting or polishing to maximise their lustrous beauty, which has been treasured since ancient times. Said to be formed by the tears of the Moon, imperfections were believed to be formed by thunder and lightning.
Keywords: ♥ strength ♥ purity ♥ integrity
Affirmation: “From all that seems to be adverse, Pearl show the path to traverse.”
The Crystal Connections’ Crystal Cards state Pearl is beneficial for:
• Calming and centring
• Connecting with and representing the Divine Feminine, Moon Energy
• Protecting families – especially children
• boosts sexual energy, strengthens visual acuity and heals ears diseases
• Making spirituality practical
• Intuition and abundance.
Our tarot card is one of the Court Cards from the Wands Suit – the Queen of Wands. All the wands card represent the element of FIRE. This is spirit, enthusiasm, drive, the will, deeds, passion and purpose. The wands are the divine spark that animates and activates us.
When you see a Court Card, ask yourself: Who does this remind me of? Within me or around me? What situation does it represent?
The throne is located on a stone dais or foundation. In the background, you can see mountains or pyramids to the right side of the throne and a bare, white yet smoother landscape to the left. The Queen sits on her throne which is decorated with lions facing opposite directions. In her left hand, she holds a blooming sunflower. In her right hand, there is long wand. Her robe is yellow and her cape is white. At her throat, there is a red seal or jewel. Her left shoe peeps out from under her robe. At her feet, in front of the dais, sits a black cat. Behind her, against the clear sky, you can see a banner which is decorated with two standing lions and three sunflowers.
Zodiac Signs : Aries, Leo & Sagittarius
Healing Crystals : Carnelian and Pearl
Keywords: leadership ♥ charm ♥ generosity
Describing the Queen’s personality
Symbols, Signs and Significances within the Card
Lions facing one another symbolises courage; being royal in bearing and responsibility, brave in the face of overwhelming forces. They also symbolise divine balance and sexual energy. Is your strength based on faith or flesh?
Lions facing away from one another symbolises strength in balance, a two-edged sword of logic and intuition.
Sunflowers symbolise joy, prosperity and health. A held sunflower represents the ability to manifest easily. Always look to the light.
A wand in the right hand symbolises taking action.
Black cat symbolises magic, sorcery and the independent nature of the person reading the card. The cat is alert and aware – ready to do what is required but waiting to gain the full picture.
Looking to the left – seeing the divine in and through all things.
The Queen’s yellow robe symbolises spiritual and intellectual activity. The grey cloak ensures that her thoughts and inspiration are guided by her knowledge of the fundamental laws of the universe. One red-shod foot peeks out from under her yellow robe. This indicates an ability to lead/move forward with intuitive interpretations of all spiritual and intellectual activity which surrounds her.
The landscape – she is balanced by her ideals/dreams (mountains) and the demands of the physical world (barren rocks).
Key Questions to ask when Reading for Yourself
• What natural gifts do I have to use in this scenario?
• How does balance and patience assist me?
• Is honey or vinegar the best option today?
The Queen of Wands shows you how to marry intuition and logic while being calm and cheerful. Her strength, like a cat’s claws, is hidden inside until the time is right to show her hand. Although the energies around you may seem to be still or stagnant, The Queen says to wait – all has not revealed itself. With patience and intuition, you will know when to show your core truth and integrity so that you may rule the situation with grace and flair.
Meditation with Caithe
Meditation is designed to increase your focus and your ability to expand your awareness. In today’s modern world, we are encouraged to be BUSY. This isn’t conducive to meditation! In our meditation circle, you are encouraged to meditate for only a short period through active visualisation provided by Caithe. If you are distracted, bring yourself back to the task by focussing on your breath. Whether you meditate for 15 minutes or 1 minute, your body will thank you for the peace!
You can listen to the Pearl Meditation – Emotional Healing – HERE on my Youtube Channel.
A Reading a day develops intuition in a superior way!
Use your journal for recording your readings. For this activity, select a deck and clear it. Ask: May I, Can I, Should I? This seeks permission to complete the task. Finally, it confirms whether you have the skill level to read at THIS moment for your PURPOSE. Look at your card – what symbols and signs ‘jump out’ at you? What do they mean to you? Write your observations down to read and reflect on again at a later date.
Next Meditation Circle: 5th July 2016. Midday.
We thank all the positive energies and entities for providing guidance and insight today. We thank each of you for this opportunity to spend time with like-minded people in a space of honour and light. Whenever you are in that place in me, and I am in that place in me, we are One.
