What a lovely card to have to start December with.
Queen of Cups
Water of Water "Her image is of extreme purity and beauty, with infinite subtlety; to see the Truth of her is hardly possible, for she reflects the nature of the observer in great perfection." (BOT)
This is a reflection of a reflection here - this Queen is a mirror to whoever looks upon her. She is easy going and makes friends easily - because they see in her, themselves. She understands emotions and where they come from, but she doesn't pick up those moods or emotions - like Pema Chodron, she understands, "you are the sky - everything else is just the weather."
This is a passive energy, very watery with no ground or fire - so be careful not to pick up others energies or influences and take them as your own.

Two of Cups
What started in the Ace is now blooming - and the number two gives us harmony, balance, duality and a need for a counterpart. Something more than just us is required now. This can be a connection by friendship or romance, but it is a powerful connection. You can feel the energy sizzle as that bond develops. So look for the connections in your life right now - this is not the time to stand alone.
So much forward momentum today! Greg and his Frog have harnessed their willpower and are driving forward getting all sorts of things done. This is a fantastic energy to play with but you need a strong personality and the will to aim it in the right direction. Make sure you know where you want to go because once you get moving it will be hard to stop.
Eight of Cups
Time to be moving on. This is a sign that we really need to open our eyes to the situation and be honest with what we see. Staying will only make us restless and emotionally weary and those are signs that we are ready to leave a stagnating situation and move forward with new life and new energy.
I LOVE Enoch! We meet him in "Hard Times Huskin' Bee" and he is the leader of his pumpkin people as well as the leader of The Pottsfield Chamber of Commerce. At first, he is simply terrifying to Greg and Wirt, but then as we go on, we realize he is actually kinda funny and laid back - even if you did murder one of his pumpkins by accidently stepping on it. Thing is, while Enoch LOOKS like a scary pumpkin thing, he is also something else underneath it. (no spoilers go watch the show)
To find what may be hiding inside us we often need a big cataclysmic explosion of energy to blast away the stagnation keeping us in one place. What we think is a secure palace is actually a prison and while leaving something that feels safe can be difficult, it is necessary for our growth and forward momentum on our great work.
Five of Axes
Ugh, so much mental static happening right now. Struggling and feeling defeated and everything feels chaotic and discordant. This hostility can be hard to deal with and I think the best way to do so is to find your own moral compass, to know your own mind and what you stand for. When you maintain a strong sense of self, you are better able to decide what to fight about and what to walk away from. It doesn't always have to be a win-lose situation - you can simply choose to walk away and not get drawn in to what isn't yours.
This Queen brings us some fantastic energy - can you use it today?
Queen of Axes (swords)
This is the Tavern Keeper in the Unknown and she is a very happy and thoughtful character. She is the only female in the tavern and knows how to stand up for herself and keep things running smoothly. She also takes zero crap from anyone and if you don't like it, she will simply swat you with a broom.
This Queen is water of air, so she brings the emotional qualities to the rational ones. This is a very sensitive and sharp-witted queen who is very independent because she knows her own mind and what she wants and how to get it. She uses her axe to cut through the chaos and gets straight to the heart of the matter.
It's Miss Langtree and Jimmy Brown! They met in the Unknown and fell in love and then he up and disappeared on her! She was heartbroken and sang of her sadness - but what she didn't know what that he had gone off to make money to buy her a ring! Hijinks ensue - you really need to watch this show, yes?
This card holds the power and energy of Love and there is a wonderful alchemy happening here. This doesn't necessarily mean a romantic love (but it can) but of a love and connection with all things and all beings, including ourselves. This is about our relationships with the things around us and how we need to be open and honest in them. Love is a very attractive force that pulls us together - but it also comes with choices. We need to look at our personal values and goals and be sure we aren't just following our hearts blindly - we have a path to follow and we must not diverge from where we need to be.
I'll be honest, at first I didn't see Adelaide as the Hierophant and then I realized it's because I try to see the positive side of the card and when you look at the flip side, you get... Adelaide LOL
Adelaide the Hierophant
This is Auntie Whispers sister and she is a bit of a eh, liar? She tends to skew her words to give false hope - in order to get what she wants she will tell you what you think you want to hear. While the Hierophant can mean learning new belief systems and joining into a group of believers/students - it can also show us that we need to be very careful and discerning about who we choose to follow/learn from.
There are so many knowledgeable and brilliant teachers who can teach us beautiful things. But there are also those who would lie for their own gains. Go forward with an open heart and open mind, but be careful and use rational thought before proceeding!
Two of Wands
Some fiery wands energy from our Frogland Ferry friend. This is the time to harness our personal power to get things going. The seed of power from the Ace is now forming with the two and with great courage and determination, you can grab this energy and get to creating. You hold this marvelous power in the palm of your hand - don't waste it!
