Mother’s Day has become a time when we honor all the women in our lives. It is a time to remember our mothers in spirit, our grandmothers, aunts, and all the important women we know.
It is also a time to connect with our Earth Mother – to spend some time in the sun, enjoying the springtime.
However you spend Mother’s Day, enjoy the many blessings that are yours, and take the time to nurture yourself and to nurture the special women in your life.
The Four Elements
The four classic elements are Earth, Air, Fire and Water.
These elements have metaphysical properties as well as physical ones, and correspond with many esoteric systems, including tarot, astrology and the seven chakras.
To live a balanced life it is helpful to make a connection with each of the four elements, either physically or through meditation.
The element of Air rules the mind. Water rules the heart. Fire rules our passions. Earth rules our wealth and health.
Now that spring is here it is easy to enjoy the fresh air on a breezy day, sit by a campfire, plant a flower and enjoy the beach. Doing these things is helpful to us on a deeper level than most people realize.
Honoring the Empress
In tarot, Major Arcana 3 is the Empress. The Empress is the card of the mother. When she comes up in a reading she could indicate pregnancy, motherhood and mothering issues. Or she could be communicating a message from a maternal relative in spirit.
The Empress card can also indicate success, fertility and luxury.
You can meditate with the Empress card to help improve your relationship with your mother, to help you become a better mother, to increase fertility and to help you communicate with a beloved woman in spirit.
The Empress card is also a representation of Gaea – the Earth Mother. You can use this card to manifest positive things for your home and for our planet.
A Special Gift for Mom
You can give the special lady in your life a gift she will never forget! Gift Certificates are available for a phone or Skype reading with Christiana, private tarot instruction or a premium webinar.

What's Up at the Psychic Café?
Last week we had an encore presentation of the Psychic Café. We aired the January 20th episode featured Marcy Currier and Lourdes Starshower. Some things are just as good the second time around. If you haven’t seen it yet, or want to watch it again, you can find it in archive.
Coming up for our Mother’s Day edition of The Psychic Café Hillary Gauvreau will be my guest. Hillary is an energy healer and a teacher at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing.
I will also give a review of a tarot exhibit I visited at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg.
We’ll have music from Robin Renee and a conversation about how mother issues show up in tarot!
In the tarot blogosphere this week there was a great two-part post from well-known tarotist James Ricklef. James asked numerous tarotists to describe how tarot works. These posts are well worth a read. Enjoy How Does Tarot Work Part 1 and How Does Tarot Work Part 2.
Your One-Card Weekly Reading
Your one-card reading this week is The Sun.
The Sun is a card of brilliance and happiness. It suggests positive outcomes, intelligence and good luck.
The Sun gives an important piece of direct advice. You must allow yourself to shine. You must use your talents, skills and ability. You must not hold back, but instead must live in the light, try your very hardest and be your very best.
You must allow nothing to take away your ability to shine.
