The Lovers card represents the joining of two as one. This could mean two people in love joining in a physical union but it is not limited to this. It could be two minds joining to create something greater then the two could ever have alone. It could mean bring two conflicting parts of your own personality together to create a more balanced self. What ever the union that is in store for you, you need to be open to it. If you are not willing to let of your ego you will never be able to join with another and you will miss out in all the peace and joy that a union can bring.

The 10 of wands is a very energetic card. The women pictured in this card are evolved in a trance dance. They are letting all of their built up energy out. They are releasing stress, anxiety, hope, fear- everything that has built up within them. We all need to do this from time to time and what better way to do it then within a safe and trusted community.
How long has it been since you spent time with your girl friends. Have you let work and family take over your life? Perhaps it's time to call your friends and sisters and have a girls nights. If this isn't possible you can meet them in meditation. Find some time when you won't be disturb, turn on some music and dance. Your sisters will join you in the ethers.

Eight is the number of change and cups is the suit of emotions. Pictured in this card is an octopus holding eight very different cups. The octopus is a creature that can hide behind its own ink cloud. Do you feel like you've been hiding? Are you juggling to many different emotions? You have a lot of things going on in your life and you are being pulled in a new direction. Do not be afraid of change, do not let it stress you out. Just relax and let the ocean currents take you where they may. You have the strength to handle what ever comes.

The ten of discs is all about community coming together for a common cause. Here a woman is giving birth aided by three other women. She is surrounded by ten other women all holding discs with different images on them. Each person in the community has a talent of gift that they are offering to teach to the child. These women have learned that a community that shares and works together is a strong one.
The ten of discs is here today to remind you that you are not alone. You are part of a community. Have you forgotten this? Are you trying to solve all your problems alone? Are you afraid to ask others for help when you have to much to do? Reach out to the people in your life, you may be amazed at how much they are willing to help. Or are you the one who is in the position to help others? Do not think of it as a duty or a choir. Working together with others can be very rewarding and will strengthen your bonds with those around you.

The Strength card like our last card, the Empress, represents the Mother Earth Goddess. However, the Empress is the grain Goddess who provides for her people where Strength is the Earth Goddess in her raw female power form. She is the fire Goddess and holds her flame out to us. Her fire is the passion that gives our lives meaning. She is the woman in all of us who is connected with nature, animals, and the moon. All women have the power to tap into these things and access great wisdom.
She is here today to remind you of your own power. What ever is going on in your life you have the strength to get through it. Trust in yourself and listen to your internal voice.

The Empress represents the archetypal Mother Earth Goddess. She is Ishtar, Aphrodite, Demeter and many more. In this image she is lounging in a fertile green field smelling one of her roses. She is content and relaxed knowing that all is well and her people are well cared for. Her plants grow abundantly and her animals are thriving.
She is here today to remind you of the abundance of life. To often today we get caught up in our things and possessions and we forget the beauty of life. Spend some time outside today. Or take it a step further and try to go the whole day without buying anything material- anything unnecessary to sustain your life.
