Blue Lace Agate
The Devil is a manipulator. He can represent a manipulative person, or an addiction, mental illness, or other situation that negatively affects behavior. He may serve as an indicator that a relationship or situation you’re in is not all that it seems, as a reminder that you have more agency than you may think, or as a warning that you need to take control of the direction your life is going.
Buffalo is a quintessential earth creature. He is grounded, but looks ahead and above. If there’s a bump in the road, he doesn’t get tripped up by it — his eyes are always on the path ahead. If you’re out of balance here, you might feel agitated or restless, or even experience ennui. You can come back into balance by maintaining your optimism and cultivating a spiritual practice. If you aren’t religious, try secular meditative or mindfulness exercises.
All told, it looks like you’re in a situation with someone or something that doesn’t have your best interest in mind. I’ve been there, and I know that things like that can bog you down and make it hard to see past whatever is controlling your life. Remember that you have power here. Keep calm, maintain an optimistic outlook, and work on a spiritual discipline. These things will help you stay strong while you work on finding a way out.
The Two of Cups is a positive card that points to harmony and emotional balance. Nice! It often points to a union in a romantic sense, but can also indicate an emotionally fulfilling partnership without any romance involved. Nice!
The Black Egg holds the truth. When you’re connected to its energy, you are free from cognitive dissonance and able to speak and act in accordance with your inner beliefs. You live authentically, with confidence and surety. When you’re not, you can find your confidence shaken, and may have difficulty expressing yourself, or find yourself saying the things you need to say in order to “fit in,” rather than what you truly feel. Now is a good time for introspection. What do you really think and feel? How does that match up with your outward behavior?
Together, it looks like this is a time in your life when you either are, or will be, experiencing inner and outer harmony. You likely have a romantic or platonic partnership that’s bringing you lots of fulfillment — if you don’t, expect to meet a new friend or partner soon. In your dealings with them, make sure you act from a place of truth. Are you in tune with the energy of the Black Egg, or out? Don’t worry about behaving inauthentically here, there’s no need. Whatever kind of relationship the Two of Cups represents is not going to dissolve just because you dared to speak your truth. You’ll be okay.
The Hierophant! I have some mixed feelings about him, myself. While he represents an adherence to tradition that I usually find stifling, he also appeared right before I started on the path to practicing neodruidry. To you, he might represent a mentor of sorts, or someone who is very entrenched in their beliefs. He may also point to a situation where you are better off doing “the done thing” — follow protocol, and don’t rock the boat.
Zebra’s a ton of fun. Those with “Zebra energy” tend to be very creative, expressive, well-traveled people. As zebras are herd animals, Zebra people are also often found contributing to social or environmental efforts. When Zebra energy is out of balance, it may make you feel jaded — as if the wide world has nothing to interest you. Bring it back in balance by taking a trip, or exploring your creative side.
If your Zebra energy is out of balance, you might be reaching for something to help break that cynical, jaded feeling. Don’t go crazy here; indulge your creative, exploratory side. Take up a traditional artform, or take a trip to somewhere that holds significance to you. You might find yourself brought back into balance by finding an artistic mentor, or traveling to the homeland of your ancestors.
Hopefully, these cards have helped shed a little light. Have a good week!
