Are you a perpetual caretaker who desperately needs a break?? Do you not know how to ask for one? Do you feel undeserving? Well, read on paying close attention to the reversed meaning.
Enthroned in her lush garden, the Earth Queen gathers strength from nature to protect and nurture those in her care. She is even-tempered, not easily upset or flustered, and these qualities endear her to her own clan as well as friendly visitors, whom she welcomes graciously. As a mother, the Earth Queen is always available for a cuddle, and nothing gives her more pleasure than feeding and caring for her kittens. As a mate, she is devoted and practical, sharing all responsibilities with her consort. Her highest priority is ensuring a comfortable life for her clan and herself.
The Cat’s Advice:
Attending to practical matters consumes most of your energy, and you take pride in caring for others and nurturing them, both physically and emotionally. Remember to give yourself the pleasure of sensual treats and attend to your own well-being. This is just common sense, which is something you have in abundance.
If the card is reversed:
You may be feeling exhausted from all that needs to be done every day, without ceasing. The practical obligations of work and home are depleting your strength and good humor. When nurturing is only a chore, it loses much of its virtue. Take a break, let others care for you for a while.
Whatever it is that you need to do must be done. How can you care for others if you have nothing left to care for you? If you are well rested and pampered you will be better able to go back to caretaking. It’s all give and take not give give give. You will also be setting a good example of self-care.
Until next time…
