It was Father’s Day recently and I wanted to do a reading in honour of it; one that would be all about fathers and our relationship with them and fatherhood itself as a concept in our lives.
More specifically, this reading is for those who, for whatever reason, do not have a relationship with their fathers at this moment in time. If this is the case, my heart goes out to you in acknowledgement of your pain and I pray for your healing.
So… whether your father is alive or deceased, whether he is currently in relationship with you or not… this is dedicated to you, the children; all those daughters and sons who live with the knowledge and the burden of things left unresolved.
If your father were able, either from the spirit realm or from his higher self, to send you a message: what would he say? That is the focus of this reading, because, sometimes, what is felt inside, what is wanted in our hearts, isn’t what we are able to share.
• Maybe your father didn’t have a chance to impart his last words?
• Maybe your relationship in life was just too charged to be workable?
• Maybe there was too much past life karma?
• Maybe disagreements were had, things said, others done… and the distance gradually widened?
Whatever reason you are here today: I want to acknowledge that I understand. For, just as Valentine’s Day can be painful for those who are single: Fathers Day can be painful for those who do not have an active, solid, earthbound, current and/or present etc., father in their lives.
And this one is a little personal; so forgive me if I get choked up.
The Five of Cups is all about regret and the man in this card is deeply regretful, ashamed and sorry for his part in how things were and what played out. He wants you to know that he is aware of the pain he has caused and can see his part in it. But he is trapped by something he promised and bound himself to. Because of this, he concealed his own truth and instead lived and acted by the truth of another, surrendering his control, mind and power. And he was never then brave or mature enough to rectify this. As a result, out of the five things he holds most dear, he has lost or broken three of them. And while he is happy, delighted even, with the two he has… he is more upset and sad about the three that he has lost. These could be you and your siblings, or you, your mother and his sister, or you and his career and finances. There is a bridge between you, a river of unhappiness and unresolved emotions, and that separates you and him from the comfort of home and familial harmony. In his message to you he wants you to know that he owns this and that he acknowledges his part in it. And he is sorry that he is unable to resolve it on the earth plane; it is something he will always regret.
The Heirophant is his wisdom gift and wish for how you can move on; his attempt now at healing what he wreaked upon you, and with it he shows you another five but this time one of order and goodness and harmony. The Heirophant is like the Pope or a High Priest, a person of moral integrity. The message in this card, and from your father, is to go out and seek a person to look up to; another father figure, but to choose wisely and kindly. Go find yourself a positive male role model, one worthy of you, the person who, right now, can be the best father to you in your life. Perhaps this person is someone you already look up to? A speaker, a writer, a blogger or vlogger, an intellectual, a mentor, a colleague or friend. He might be a guru you follow. Or an angel. Or an ascended master. Or one of your guides. He might be a friend’s father or grandfather. If you haven’t found him yet, your father urges you to find him now, because his permission and blessing is all that he can give.
If you would like to know more about what is going on right now and would also like to hear more about my thoughts… I discuss the things that are coming up for me and how I am attempting to mother, manage, navigate and clear them in my own life on my YouTube channel in a section called A Little Light.
There are also lots of tarot card readings covering topical issues, as well as love, relationships, career, health and life, etc.
