Letters From Thoth & The New Era Elements
I love how these 2 decks flow into each other today.
Three of Cups
Crowley calls this the card of Demeter and Persephone and the Fulfillment of the Will of Love in abounding joy. The spiritual basis of fertility. It is so full of goodness and life and color - a very sensuous pleasure but! The pomegranates have a small warning as well. Going back to Persephone, she did swallow some of those seeds and is now stuck spending time in the Underworld each year. Crowley notes, "the lesson seems to be that the good things of life, although enjoyed, should be distrusted." I am not sure I'd be that dark with the symbolism - I would say to just stay balanced and aware of what is going on around you - and not fall into the, "too much of a good thing."
Four of Water
These little seal pups are waiting for their mom to come back from hunting - so for now, they are secure in their nest, stable and calm. There is a chance of boredom here though, I mean, they are stuck waiting - so we need to balance that lull so we don't get too bored or restless. These downtimes of "nothing," can be a great pause for us, to regroup and be thankful for all we have in our lives and celebrate that loving energy.
So today we are full up of good emotions and loving energy. We are in a good spot, feeling safe and cared for and blessed to have such loving support. In this safe space we should pause and show our thanks and appreciation so that we don't become complacent or take these things for granted.
