Our card for the day, Thursday, March 14th, is taken from the Angel Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine – Knight of water- This Knight is emotional, romantic, enthusiastic, and contemplative. This card represents – “Falling in love, or wedding proposals. The need to balance emotions. An invitation to a social event.”
– On this card we see a young merman riding a dolphin which is dancing across the surface of the water. The knight of course is carrying his sword in one hand while the other hand holds the reins that control the dolphin he is riding. Under the surface of the water we can see a pod of dolphins as well as one illuminated cup. The surface of the water directly behind and around him appears quite turbulent while the water further off in the distance is calm. Just behind him and to the side we can see other people in small boats. In the distant background we can see a mountain range set against the setting sun.
– The predominant color of this card is of course the blue of the water. We know that water represents our emotions, especially love, and blue represents open spaces, freedom, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration, and sensitivity.
– The darker blue water, or indigo, under the surface represents represents the unknown depths of the sea along with emotion, strength, fluidity, persuasiveness, expressiveness, and pervasiveness.
– The surface waves are also tinged with some green, as well there is some green at the base of the mountains, and green represents the attributes of youth, sentimentality, nature, adventure, growth and health.
– This knight has golden hair and gold represents the infamous legend of alchemists turning common metals into gold is actually a parable for the human quest to change base vulgarities like greed, hate and selfishness into qualities like love, virtue and compassion through the process of self-purification. Ergo, gold is symbolic of this transition of the soul. (http://www.symbolic-meanings.com/2009/10/07/symbolic-meaning-of-gold/)
– The sky above the mountain range is a beautiful amethyst color and amethyst has a calming yet spiritually protective energy. It’s associated with the crown chakra which helps connect with the spiritual realm. It can help raise a lower vibration energy to a higher one. It can help bridge the gap for those seeking spiritual guidance, healing, protection or wisdom. (http://www.alleghenycandles.com/amethyst_properties.html)
– The mountains in the background represent challenges or obstacles but as they are in the distance, those challenges have been overcome and the obstacles dealt with.
– As there is one lone cup on this card, I’m also going to give the meaning for the number 1: “Stay positive. Everything you are thinking about right now is coming true, so be sure that you’re only thinking about what you desire. Give any fears to God and the angels.” Taken from Angel Numbers 101 by Doreen Virtue.
– A little added information that seems pertinent to this reading as what happens in the heavens also affects us physically and emotionally: Comet Pan-STARRS – has anyone seen it or felt it’s movement? There has been so much going on celestially in March. What have you learned about life this month? What has soul shown you? (https://www.facebook.com/ElizabethSPeru)
– Our cards over the past couple of days have come from the suits of Water and Fire, both dealing with our emotions and our passion.
– What I feel as I look at this card is that this knight brings turbulence and upheaval where as the scene behind him is calm and beautiful. This would indicate a need to create balance and gain control over our own emotions right now. An amethyst stone can help with that as we can see by the symbolic meaning of the amethyst. I love the energy of amethyst and wear or carry a piece frequently. The energies that have been coming into the earth of late have many people feeling on edge, emotions are turbulent and boiling just below the surface, ready to erupt at the slightest provocation. We can see the evidence of that if we follow the news. However we are still being reminded by this card as with the others for the past couple of days, to remain positive and balanced as much as we can because what we think is going to manifest into our realities fairly quickly. Especially those thoughts that have a lot of passion or desire behind them which can be negative or positive. Remember too, we are undergoing a major transformation not only on the global scale but as individuals as well. We are never alone, we are surrounded by our angels and guides at all times who are waiting to help us, guide us and protect us when we need it. All we need do is to ask for their help when we feel overwhelmed by our emotions or the events occurring around us. Remember that we are not going through this alone and to show compassion to our fellow travelers on this journey. Have a great day everyone!
