Tarot Blog Hop: Honoring Our Beloved Dead

Welcome to the Tarot Blog Hop honoring our beloved dead.  I chose to honor Freda Kahlo as she is an inspiration to me.  I'm our wrangler this month and my guidance was to create a physical or virtual altar to someone we love or who has inspired us and to pull cards asking for advice.

Dearest Frida,

Thank you for being fierce and reminding us to take action instead of to whine.  Thank you for giving me an example of how to live life boldly.  Thank you for showing me that a woman could be fierce, bold, and feminine.

Blessings Raine

Chosen Card for Frida

The card I chose to represent Frida in her altar is not actually a card, but one of her paintings where she reminded me of the queen of cups.  

How do you feel about where the world is right now?
The nine of coins tells me that the world is a very lonely place right there as there is so much abundance for some that they can stand apart and not have a sense of community.  This makes sense as Frida was a communist and she would clearly see the separation between the haves and the have nots.   The other messages from this card are to be cherish what I do have and to have a sense of gratitude.  I should also do what I can to help those who have less than I do.  I may never be able to balance things out, but that should not stop me from doing what I can.

What can I learn from you?
The Page of Cups tells me to approach life from a place o love and to be fierce in my love.  I need to let go of slights and hurts and to let love flow.  This is an important message for me as it is a reminder that life can be hard, but it becomes much harder when I hold on to aches, pains,and slights.

What advice can you give me?
The Ace of Coins tells me to treasure what I have and to live a life of gratitude.  Do not worry or let thoughts of lack bring me fear.  I will be taken care of.  Another good message as I often get all caught up in what I don't have and forget to treasure what I do have.

All in all this was a good read, if somewhat short.
