Daily Oracle Card, From the Sirian Starseed Tarot: Four of Chalices
Four of Chalices, from the Sirian Starseed Tarot: “…the Four of Chalices reminds us of those times when even in a full room we can feel immense loneliness and isolation. Many Starseed incarnated on Earth now experience this longing to return to their star family, feeling displaced and foreign in a world in which they feel they have never quite belonged.
The young woman in the key (card) sits at the very edge of the ocean, dangerously close in fact, as if the waves (her emotions) are about to consume her. Three chalices sit precipitously on the rocks nearby – it is as if she doesn’t eve notice the gift they bring. In the waves, a dolphin spirit being presents her with the fourth chalice, and yet still she remains blind to them all as she gazes up at her star, longing to go home.
The key is a great teacher for Starseeds incarnated on Earth at this time. It speaks to us of how each moment of life is precious and that we become aware of our gifts when we stay focused, in the moment, on the wonders of all that we are given. There is a reason we came here – now. Let us pay attention to what great gifts this realm provides us.
How are you allowing your projections of the past or future disrupt the beauty of the now? Do you recognize how you have everything you need to be happy and fulfilled? How does your sense of not fitting in or belonging manifest in your world, and how can you change it? When will you recognize spirit’s message?”*
This card calls for introspection, separating from the drama of every day life and stopping to meditate, banishing the “monkey mind” and delving into the Divine in all of us. It’s so easy to get caught up in the emotional stuff, going from crisis to crisis. Our whole culture is set up on it, media thrives on the worst of the happenings in the world. Now that we have world wide access to information, literally seconds after some kind of disaster or tragedy happens, we are right in the middle of it all, and emotionally it’s exhausting.
We need to find the time and space to center ourselves amid the chaos. One of the best ways to do this is to go outside, preferably barefoot, connecting with the earth. Go for a walk on the beach, dig in your garden, sit on a mossy rock, admire (or if no one’s looking, or even better, you don’t care, HUG A TREE!!). Dip your toes in the ocean, stream or lake. Gaze up at the sky, watch a sunset, count the clouds, listen to the birds. It’s so easy. If this is not possible for you, then you will have to improvise by meditation, use a photo if you have trouble visualizing yourself out in nature until you no longer need it and can use your imagination to dive into the ocean, fly through the sky or become one with the stars.
See what a difference it makes to your stress levels to break away from your emotional self and eventually be able to keep those overwhelming emotions at bay.
Learn to not take yourself so seriously!
