Intuitive Tuesday on Wednesday - 9 of Cups

On Intuitive Tuesdays I select a tarot card and give you my interpretation of it. On Wednesday I select one reader's comment and pull an additional card.

I encourage you to read about the additional card I pulled this week and see how it applies to your life. Anything that is brought to one of us is a message for all of us.

Yesterday's Intuitive Tuesday card was the Ten of Swords (reversed). This morning as I read through your comments, I was drawn to Kim’s comment about feeling stabbed in the back by her own intuition. Here is an excerpt from Kim’s comments yesterday:
What I realize as I look at this card and the meaning is that “I” was the one NOT really listening to myself – thereby stabbing myself in the back (BIG OUCH), hoping instead that what I perceived as possible potential would come to be. In my mind it made total sense that there would be lots of people there who would rather be supported in “creating” their future versus having it “predicted” for them. Well this may be true – but to think that I was going to find them at a Psychic Fair was delusional of me.
I also noted Excavator’s observation about so many reversed and Swords cards. Reversed cards indicate that you may not be seeing the lesson of the card or may be blocked in some way. Kim’s comment about her idea making “total sense” brought to my mind how each of us tries to figure it out (which would be symbolized by the Swords), using our brains and logic to navigate through our lives.

The card I selected this morning is the Nine of Cups. This card was featured a couple of months ago on Intuitive Tuesday. I’ve included a link so you can re-read the meaning of the Nine of Cups.

As a quick reminder, this is known as the “wish card” and the main message is that you get what you desire – heath, happiness, contentment and satisfaction. Yeah! Know that as you move down your path, you are “getting it” and are bringing this emotional depth and understanding into your life...and as you do, it is reflected in the world around you.

The Cups takes us out of our heads and brings us right back to our emotions. What messages are here for you in regards to what’s going on in your life?

Lead with your heart (Cups). Do this first. Quit trying to figure it out. Listen to the emotions you have and go from there. When you feel negativity towards yourself or others or about something that’s happening in your life, go back to your own emotions.

What in your heart has been hurt before? This isn’t so much of a thinking exercise, but more of a feeling one. When have you felt this before? What was happening? How can these feelings today, combined with your updated awareness, bring you peace and understanding?

Imagine taking the Cup (full of the emotions that are charging you) and lovingly pour out the old emotions that are charging you now and re-fill the Cup with love – for you, for the situation, for the other person…and for the world.

May you bask in the energy of the Nine of Cups. Fill your Cups with loving emotions and enjoy the blissfulness of this card.

Dang. You said the dreaded words: It's not so much THINKING as it is FEELING.

I'm SO much more comfortable THINKING my way through.

I guess I'll keep getting chances to change that sentence, huh?

It's always a great reminder for me to tune into what I'm feeling and quiet my thinking. Thanks Sheri!
