A Pisces Good Morning by Gneiss Moon
I recently joined a tea reading group and have been itching to do a reading – I even had a dream about doing one last week….
On the table are a divination cup from a friend, the Tea Leaf Fortune cards by Rae Hepburn, also a gift, and magic carpet -Tiger Tea – in the cup.
That’s what I call it anyway – Bengal Spice…a touch of honey…mmmm
So you can’t do a tiger tea reading without quotes from the Celestial Seasoning box, lol.
Many things which cannot be overcome when they are together, yield themselves up when taken little by little. – Plutarch
I have also pulled some paua shell runes, that I was led to by a friend.
The merkaba pendulum is a Star Trek weekend find. You can read more about pendulum dowsing here. It was a lovely quiet, cloudy Pisces Morning – perfect for divination ~
The Runes are pulled in the positions for tea reading. The handle points toward the reader and represents events in the close inner circle, as the leaves are read away from the handle clockwise, the events become farther away – they are events passing away. The position opposite the handle represents events in the outer circle, as the cup is followed clockwise towards the handle they represent events coming towards the reader.
Leaves in the well of the cup are heavy emotional experiences, towards the top of the rim, they are lighter.
First the Rune reading : starting at the handle going clockwise.
I included all of us in this reading with the intention that it would lead us all to our highest potential and most benevolent outcome.
Uruz: Untamed potential, the shaping of power
Ehwaz: movement, teamwork
Gebo: gifts, balance
Raidho: evolution, personal and world rhythm
Now on to the tea grounds (leaves) – I will be using the symbols on the cup, especially the astrological symbols until I get a plain cup from the local secondhand.
First off, it seems evident there is quite a bit of action surrounding Mars, or should I say blockage with Mars retrograde..? oy. It is leaving, and shown by the directional point, it will be quickly. Thankfully, situations will improve – we just get better at slogging through the slow times – this is good preparation for the upcoming increase of the Uranus Pluto square.
Saturn has activity in the cup, as does Sun- they are trine now, an easy flow and exchange between work and spirit, a very creative aspect. Saturn is in Venus ruled Libra, Sun in the sign of higher octave artistic pursuits, Pisces. There is balance near Moon – acceptance of the cycles and that sweet surrender and acceptance Pisces is so famous for.
I also see Mercury has eyes (in the back of it’s head - Merc is neutral), most likely the heightened senses in play since both Mars and Saturn are retro and the house of Pisces is active with Neptune, Sun, Chiron, Mercury and Moon. We hone the other energies while Mars and Saturn are hobbled. Our intake of information is increased on all levels, material and spiritual.
There are two bells ringing (clappers) under the bell shape near the handle indication good news is coming from a woman in your inner circle. YaY !
This reading is for all of us, so comments are welcome ~ what do you see…?
These are cards from the Tea Leaf deck, again to be read clockwise. The card at the bottom is the situation closest to you – traveling clockwise are the events leaving your life, the top represents the events farthest away involving others not in your inner circle. The card on the right represents what is on its way to you.
Firecracker: Exciting stimulating events are occurring close to you at this time.
Claw: Waiting has passed. A time of risk-taking is over, the path is smoother now.
Rose: Love is in the air – from afar -be open to receive.
Hills: A period of testing and growth is on its way to you.
Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.
