Do you seem to always find yourself taking in strays? Or, are you the stray that has been or needs to be taken in? Read on… but pay attention to the reversed meaning as that is how this card came to me.
Six of Earth:
Unlike the cold and hungry cat in the Five of Earth, this mother and her kittens have found welcoming shelter with a generous Earth Cat who has enough to share. The mother knows she must trust in the goodness of her benefactor and show her little ones that there’s no shame in accepting help when it is needed. The Earth Cat blesses her guests with love as well as sustenance, and in giving she is greatly blessed as well.
The Cat’s Advice:
Share the bounty of your life with those less fortunate. If you are the one in need of help and care, do not be too proud to accept it when it is offered. Remember that the giver receives blessings as well as the recipient. The exchange is equal, so you needn’t hesitate or worry about feeling indebted.
If the card is reversed:
Help that is offered now may come with strings attached. You may feel a heavy sense of obligation if you accept, so weigh your decision carefully to determine if the rewards are worth the price. If you are the one being miserly, consider your motivations. Either give freely or don’t give at all.
When you are the one in need, sometimes the giver has a secret agenda that is never shared with you. It may seem all sparkly now but soon the mirrors will be moved and the illusion shattered. Have a backup plan, always have a backup plan. If you are the one in need, don’t be afraid to give of what little you have.
Until next time…
