This third week of April focused on the 3 of Chalices, from Spirit Keeper's Tarot created by Benebell Wen (...I'm a geeky fan girl. It's true.).
It's spirit resident is The Kindred.
Not long after I pulled the April month ahead cards, work approved me to go to North Carolina for a week to meet with my staff there and welcome two new hires so I could start the on-boarding process in person. In this virtual world, I had never met my staff in person. We talk on the phone, video chat sometimes, IM all of the time - but never in person. So this was a big deal for many reasons.....I actually still can't believe they approved it. When I went back to the 3 of Chalices I thought, yeah, this is good, it's going to go well. And so it did. That face to face interaction was so needed. This group of women and one gentleman are down to earth and delightful, support each other, and work hard. I was so happy we could all find the time to have a nice leisurely dinner together during that week. Perfect.
Ok so now is the point where I go to my theme card for the month: The Warrior Rx (aka, The Sun): Master of the Mystic Light. By this time I'm really getting the whole "things are great and all, but...." and "almost but not quite" vibes from this card. Indeed, the week was great; I just wished I'd had more time! It was so busy. When I left to fly home, and there were flight delays marring my otherwise smooth as silk traveling experience, immediately I thought, "Well, there's my Reversed Warrior."
Sitting at the terminal waiting for the latest news on when our flight might finally leave at the mercy of some weather, I did what any normal person would do: take out my book, "The Marseille Tarot Revealed" by Yoav Ben-Dov as I am learning Marseille. A woman came and sat down right next to me, got settled in, and she looked at me and said, "Do you read tarot?"
Me: "Yes! Yes I do!"
Woman: "So do I!"
And from that moment we started talking shop up until it was time to board, and right on to the plane. It was absolutely a "kindred" moment. AND that may not have happened had it not been for this "almost but not quite" Warrior Rx flight delay.
It gets better.
We walk onto the plane, our seats are exactly next to each other, and we're just dying. Of course they are together!
She looked at me again and said, "Are you a Scorpio?"
Me: "I'm Scorpio rising! It's even my IG handle!"
She is a Scorpio sun.
Our daughters' names are the same, and her daughter's middle name is my first name.
Can you imagine? The epitome of Kindred Spirits, somewhat like Anne and Diana. We continued to talk barely noticing the plane taking off, and exchange esoteric knowledge, web sites, astrological readings, etc. etc. etc. It was bliss to talk to a perfect stranger about all of the things.
If I were to write a Warrior Rx addendum to this post, I would tell you that the flight was very bumpy and rough, and that I became quite green around the gills, and that I almost threw up.
But not quite.
