‘Peace is the beauty of life. It is sunshine. It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family. It is the advancement of man, the victory of a just cause, the triumph of truth.’ – Menachem Begin
Your family is the heart of your life. Although there can be conflicts and estrangements. Families are the ones we turn to the most through the ups and the downs of life, it is a journey you experience together. So what cards do you want to come up in your reading that holds a special significance to your family unit?
Ten of Cups
The Ten of Cups shows a family happy and content waving at a rainbow full of cups with a house and a river in the background. Stability can come from the secure and happy unit that is portrayed in this picture of happiness. Fulfilment is another area it focuses on, the children, happy marriage and a roof over your head as well as the heavens blessing the family unit by ways of a rainbow. A good omen to those who are planning on starting a family.
Six of Cups
The Six of Cups, a card of harmony and mending relationships. The picture on the card shows an older boy offering flowers to a younger boy. A signal of peace. Reaching out to loved ones to show no hard feelings and the importance of sticking together. Another take on the Six of Cups is that the two boys are actually the two tenses, the future and past. It can be that your future is accepting the problems of the past and embracing the differences to move forward in harmony.
Four of Wands
This card comes up with all love related topics. The man and woman are seen happily engaged in a marriage ceremony. The union of two people. This is a fantastic omen if you are in a long-term relationship and you are wanting to start a family of your own. A family originates from the love of two people. What better way to bless your family than having the Four of Wands come up in your reading. Relish in this blessing, embrace the power of love above all, but never forget to be attentive to one another.
Five of Swords
Not all relationships in families are smooth sailing. Some can be hard and you feel you are constantly fighting an uphill battle. In this card, there is a man smirking with all the swords and two men walking away defeated but unharmed. The Five of Swords, although not an obvious family orientated card, can help you realise when to pick your battles. Maybe you have been falling out with a sibling, parent, child? Take a deep breath and realise what is important, winning a battle or saving the relationship? Remember just because there is no violence doesn’t mean that wounds are not present. Be aware that words can hurt just as much as a physical injury.
Three of Cups
The Three of Cups shows a scene of three sisters dancing together with a chalice in their hands. A picture of happiness. Family is important, take the time to catch up and embrace your sisters. The unity they show in this picture is a reminder to stay connected and in tune with your sisters. Life has a way of taking control. Let this card be a reminder to take some downtime, let down your hair and enjoy your sister’s company. They can help if you are struggling or need some good old sisterly advice, they will not judge.
