Fun Fact Friday – Minor Arcana

The Minor Arcana are made up of four suits, like playing cards. The names of the suits vary with decks but the most common are Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles.

There are 56 individual Minor Arcana cards. Each suit having Ace – King, each card having its own meaning and message to different areas of your life. In playing cards it is Jack, Queen, King, Ace, in the tarot it is Page, Knight, Queen, King.

The suits all represent an aspect of your life as well as an element. Wands tend to revolve around motivational factors and projects and its element is Fire. Swords tend to revolve around comflicts with others or within yourself and its element is Air. Cups tend to revolve around emotions and relationships and its element is water. Pentacles tend to revolve around money and home with the element of earth.

With all that being said, every deck is different so you need to read through the booklet that comes with the deck to determine exactly what the suits signify. I believe that every person has his or her own card in the deck. Mine is and always has been the Queen of Swords. Do you know yours?

Thursday’s Kitchen – Comfort Dish

Who doesn’t love a good comfort food? My daughter and myself love to get comfy with some Shepard’s pie. But little did we know that eating this comforting dish was actually grounding our energy, which is why we felt such comfort from eating it. We are eating grounding “conduits” from the earth.

 

 

Ingredients

 

 

Magical Properties

 

10 peeled Yukon gold potatoes

It is said that potatoes are added to a meal for a grounding affect they get from the minerals in the earth.
 

1 ½ lbs of lean ground beef

Ground beef is also grounding with its protein and strength it gives to you.
1 diced onion Onions give you healing and protection.
 

4 cloves of garlic diced

Garlic is full of antibodies and they help your body heal.
 

2 celery stalks diced

As another vegetable that comes from the earth, its minerals and vitamins give you a grounding affect
1 cup of sliced button mushrooms Mushrooms minerals offer grounding effects from the earth.
Milk Milk nurtures your body and offers it love.
 

Butter

Butter is the churned cream from milk, it is nurtured and nurtures you.
Salt & Pepper Both of these offer cleansing and protection.
1 cup of corn, frozen or can Abundance and prosperity.
1 cup of peas, frozen or can Love
1 package of onion soup mix  
1 can of mushroom soup  

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

While I am cooking my potatoes I fry up the ground beef adding salt and pepper to it. When it is browned I add the onions, garlic, celery and mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes. Next I add the corn and peas and cook for 3 minutes. I then add the onion soup mix and mushroom soup and let that simmer for 5 minutes.

When the potatoes are done I mash them and add milk and butter as I see fit. Dump the ground beef mixture into a 9X13 dish and spread the potatoes over top. I add a layer of butter on top of the potatoes and cover it in tin foil and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes. I then take the tin foil off and pop it in the oven until it is browned on top. After taking it out of the oven I let it sit for 5 – 10 minutes and then serve.

This is so yummy and will leave you feeling full and content and grounded.

What is your favourite comfort food?

Wild Card Wednesday – 10 of Chalices

I am late on Wednesday’s post but here it is. I used the Green Witch Tarot deck by Ann Moura for my card pull and pulled the 10 of Chalices.

In this card is a happy couple watching their child pick purple flowers by a stream. All of their cups on the table beside them are upright. The picture projects happiness.

I see family happiness – love – contentment. You can tell that the wife feels happy, safe and secure in her husbands arms.

To me, pulling this card makes me feel at ease. I know everything is good at the moment. I can take a breath and relax because my family is happy and well.

What does this card mean to you, I would love to hear your thoughts.
