ARTEMIS
Guardian
"You and your loved ones are safe and spiritually protected"


The bow and arrow Goddess Artemis can be viewed in such a way that an archer would use the bow and arrow, to hit its target. It is not about hurting animals. So, since this bow and arrow can be viewed to hit your target, then this would mean that you would need the concentration and focus to hit your target. Your target can be seen as the manifestation of your true heart's desires, and the bow and arrow would be your mind. In other words, you need to focus on reaching your manifestation of your true heart's desires, which you would be able to do by positive thoughts, having a joyful heart, and having the hope and faith for the future. In some sense, it could be seen that you may need to let go of certain things that act as hindrances and negative influences on your so you can have the manifestation of your true heart's desires. These things would inlude self-doubts, fears, worries, insecurities and any other self-sabotaging thoughts. Know that you are safe and you have protection and security provided to you by the Universe. Also know that whatever your needs are, they will also be provided to you as well, and those things that are provided to you will help you to fulfill your life's mission.

There is an indication that your mission maybe to spread love and light.

BRIGIT
Don't Back Down
"Stand up for what you believe is right"


Make your intentions clear, what exactly do you want to do and what do you want to accomplish. Once you have made your intention clear, do not be swayed. Don't worry what other people think of you. Don't be talked out of what you really want to do. Put your foot down, stand your grown and don't take no for an answer.

This basically means do not compromise. By compromising what you intend to do, what your true heart's desires are, you would be diluting or weakening the manifestation. Others may not understand or approve of what you are doing, but at the same time even though they may not approve or understand what you are doing, you should not let that allow you to affect your decisions or your intentions. You are strong, you deserve to be happy, fulfilled and content, you should be true to yourself instead of doing what is expected of you by others. If they do not agree of understand what you are doing and what vision you have, you can try to explain what you are doing and what vision you have, but there is no need to get defensive about that. If you continue with what you have intended to do, they would appreciate and benefit from you doing what you set out to do, it may even inspire them to do something like that themselves

KALI
Endings and Beginnings
"The old must be released so that the new can enter"


The card itself, the background, I mean, is that of the Universe. The order of the Universe is that of change, nothing stays the same, it can be said that the only constant is change. This state of endings and beginnings, and deaths and births, even goes on in the Universe, including the stars.

Another thing, nothing can be destroued. If something has died, then the matter from that is used to make something new. Matter cannot be destroyed. In some sense it can be said that nothing in the Universe stays in a vaccuum, if something has died there is always something there, even if it is just gas. This gas in the Universe can be used to build or to make something new, so that it can be given birth in a sense.

The same thing applies to your life. There are endless endings and beginnings, and deaths and births in your life. This is how we grow through our experiences and be able to be transformed. These endings are not pleasant, but if something has ended usually it is because it has passed its used by date and holds no purpose for us any more, except for whatever we needed to learn from that experience. You can take away what you need to learn from the experience and let the rest go, what is of no use to you any more. As the Universe doesn't like vaccuums, the ending will be replaced with a beginning.

SEDNA
Infinite Supply
"You are supplied for today and all of your tomorrows"


This card is about finding a good balance between receiving and giving. We have talked about this for previous cards, for the other decks. There are some people who give, give and give and end up feeling resentful, unappreciated and low in energy. There maybe people in your life who place too many demands on your time, energy and attention.

But on the other hand, you may be the sort of person who take, take and taek. If you do that all the time, you would not appreciate that has been given to you. Matter-of-fact you would get to the point you would expect it and you would not feel the gratitude for receiving.

Other than that, this card says that your nees will be met. There is no need to worry for the future. One other thing, is that there is a certain amount of pleausre you can get from giving when you feel like it, or not obligated to. To allow for someone else to feel that, you should allow someone to give you.

On top of that, since this is a card by the ocean, then this signifies to spend some time by the ocean. It could be as simple as walking along the beach. Perhaps you could rent out or buy a holiday house by the sea. Perhaps you would like to go swimming, sailing, surfing or any other oceanic sporting activity. Maybe even donate some time or money towards a cause that helps to protect the ocean and the marine life, such as save the whales, for example.

YEMANYA
Golden Opportunity
"Important doors are opening for you right now. Walk through them"


This says that your prayers have been answered. Something will be presented to you and it is a matter of not hesitiating or procrastinating. Also, this card mentions the importance of timing. This opportunity that comes your way is because you are ready for it. However, if you do not take the opportunity it does not matter that much, as other opportunities will be presented to you.

The card itself shows the Goddess in the ocean with a wave coming in behind her, and a dolphin jumping out of the water. So, this is a sense of reassurance for you, that if you have missed one opportunity, that other opportunities will also be presented to you. As the tides have a rhythm, as do the waves, they come in and then they go out again, it is an ongoing thing.

In another way the way that the ties come in and then go out again can be a symbolism for something else. It could almost be seens as similar to the endings and beginnings. In the sense that the tide brings in new opportunities and they can wash away anything that is not needed, as in a situation that no longer serves your purpose.

Going on that line of thinking, everything we do and everything that happens to us is like a learning experience. In which case, once we have learnt what we have needed to from that experience, then that would mean that you can to onto the next level, and that experience will be finished with, in a sense. During these experiences there may be feelings of anger, grief, sadness and what not, and as we are presented with this new opportunity, these feelings and thoughts could be washed away leaving only what was needed for you to gain or learn from the experience. It is possible what you have learned from previous experiences would be useful in this new opportunity.

Another way of looking at this, is that nothing stays the same. There is a constant cycle to things, and there are rhythms that we go through in our lives. But, as a whole this card says that you are proctected, safe and you will be provided for now and the future. It may indicate that even though you may feel that you are not qualified for this new opportunity presented to you, you are qualified, and let the waves wash away any self-doubts, fears, worries, insecurities and other self-sabotaging thought you may have, including your qualifications for this new opportunity.

CORDELIA
Go Outside
"You have been inside too long. Go outside and get some fresh air"


By spending time in a natural setting would help to life your spirits. Not only that, it would be good for you to get some fresh air and some sunshine. When I look at the card, there appears to be fairies in the card. So, by saying this, you can connect with fairies by spending time in a natural setting, where you can get in touch with the fairies. So they can give you inspiration and to help in guiding you in some way. You will feel freer in your mind and your heart, and you would have some creative ideas. You will feel renewed by sending time in nature, and you can look at the natural beauty.

It could be finding some time to sit outside in your garden, looking at the plants and animals that reside in your garden. Maybe you would actually like to do some gardening. You could even do something while sitting in your garden, such as writing, reading or some art work. Occasionally, you could take some time to redirect your focus on the natural beauty. Not only that, you would be able to feel the breeze and the warmth from the sun on you.

You could go camping, go on a retreat, take a walk through the woods, the bush, an national park or along the bezch. Well, it doesn't necessary have to be walking, it could be riding a bike or horse riding. Ther e are things that you can do, like swimming, surfing and sailing in the ocean, or looking at the night sky. Doing this would help to quieten your mind and put you in a positive fram of mind because of the beauty.

Perhaps you would like to do something to help the environment. Maybe you could join an environmental protection group. This card also points in that you may need to find more balance in your life, you may be spending a lot of time working and doing things for others, where you need to allocate more of your time to rest and play. Maybe you can change your job, where you would have a job where you spend more time outside, maybe as a gardener, working at horse stables, or anything along those lines.

BAST
Independent
"Your independence is a foundation for your strength and success"


On the card itself, it depicts a woman dressed in ancient Egyptian attire with cat's ears. There are cats on either side of her. Cats are well known for being independent but still have time to play and to be affectionate to their owners and other cats. By drawing this care, then this is saying that you should develop some of these qualities within yourself, or to spend some time with your pet cats, if you have any.

So, all in all, then this may indicate that there is a need to get a balance with spending time by yourself with others. In some way, you may be the sort of person who has always someone else around you, and that you rely heavily on the opinions of others, then this would indicate that there maybe need to spend some time by yourself and you should go in accordance to what your ooinions are, in other words, not tto be too reliant on others fro their company or their opinions. On the other hand, you may already be a very independent person who spends a lot of time in solitude, then this is saying that you may need to get together with some friends so you can allow yourself to have some fun and to play.

Also this card mentions that make sure your needs are met. If that is the case, then this says that it is OK to be a little selfish from time to time. Afterall, if you spend time giving to others, you would wind up being physically unwell, tired, low in energy and perhaps a bit depressed. If people are constantly demanding too much of your time, energy and attention it is OK to say "no" occasionally. Instead use that time to pamper yourself and get some rest. You can do this by getting some sort of beauty treatment, getting a new hairstyle, getting a massage, as well as making sure that you are getting adequate rest.

PELE
Divine Passion
"Be honest with yourself: What is your heart's true desire?"


Pele is the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes. This card says that fire is not really as bad as it apears to be. Sure things are burnt, killed and destroyed with fire, but it can be healing and will allow the birth and generation of something new. When I write this, this reminds me of a particular tree species here in Australia, where the seed can only be opened and germinated by fire. It also can be seen as a form of regeneration, where the dead, old and useless is burnt away, leaving somethint that can be given birth, where it is allowed to grow and would be more in line with what you desire and deserve.

This card also mentions to follow the rhythm of your own heart, or your body. What this tells us is to listen to your body, your thoughts and your feelings. If you are involved in something that doesn't suit your purposes and is not in line with your true heart's desires you are likely to have a part of you telling that you are on the wrong track. You may be suffering from stress, which would indicate that you would have some physical sympotom, such as knotted stomach, headaches, neck soreness and stiffness, and feeling low in ergy in general. Take time to listen to what you have been told from your body, mind and spirit, where you notices anything that doesn't seem quite right, more than likely you are not doing something that you truly desire to do.

This card asks that you be honest with yourself. Discover what you really desire to do and do it. Don't go around doing what is expected of you from others. Don't let them persuade you out of doing what you truly desire to do. Perhaps you need to quit or change your job or career. Take up some courses or get involved with a club that is associated with your interests. It also mentions that make sure your job matches your interest. Maybe you need to sit down and list the priorities you have for yourself, so you do things for yourself, things that you have great passion and that gives you pleasure. Make sure you spend time doing this on a regular basis, perhaps every day. Dance to your own tune, don't worry about what others think of you.

Study Group


I love this deck. I just got it for my birthday. I love the guilt edging and the little guide book that comes with it is great. For instance, each card contains a message from the goddess, then various meanings of the card is listed. There is also a paragraph of information about each goddess.

I havent gotten to know all the cards yet. Would anyone be interested in doing a study group to get to know all the cards?
