If you chose Card 1:
Mary Magdalene - Identity Much of the story of Mary Magdalene has been shrouded in secrecy. She was part of the Essences, who lived in modest and ecological communities. According to the Dead Sea Scrolls, their lifestyle was based on illumination of inner self and knowledge of the hidden mysteries. The gospel according to Mary Magdalene, in the Gnostic texts, state there is no sin; it is you who goes against the natural law of truth, and creates the illusion of sin. Those who have a mind to understand, let them understand. You are the only one who can lead you astray. Mary Magdalene is often depicted with an alabaster vessel containing natural oils. She asks you to mentally strip all the external factors of your life and ponder, "Who am I and what are my values?" You have a strong desire to share what you have learned. You may feel people will dismiss you or ridicule you, but don't worry - Mary Magdalene is here to guide you through this process. Your vulnerability is actually your greatest strength because you are trusting the power of your soul and that part of you can never be broken. You are a wonderful teacher and leader and the world needs you. You are being backed by heaven, so step forwards and share all that you have learned. This is a time for transparency, illumination, and also enlightenment. You are awakening. This is a time for the ascension process and a rise in consciousness. You will be shedding masks, stepping into your truth, and remembering who you are. Mary is the a rebel heart in many ways - she helps those lightworkers who feel restricted by the opinions of others to step up and speak their truth. Call on her to help you with your own identity.
If you picked Card 2:
Mahuika - Anger Maori fire goddess Mahuika lived on a flaming mountain. She was convinced by trickster Maui to light her magical fire, one by one, from every nail of her hands and feet. He played on her wrath by continually extinguishing each little flame and asking for more. Mahuika exploded in anger and caused an enormous fire on earth. When it burned out, magical sparks were saved inside the trees. The kindling sparks of wood friction are her symbol. The green Hei-Tiki figure symbolizes the first Maori goddesses/gods from the stars. Mahuika cautions you to monitor your anger if you feel people are running you the wrong way. Powerful fire will burn out of control quickly and destroy whatever is in its path. Anger is your sacred fuel and adrenaline that must be used judiciously. Be wise and use your anger as motivation to spark your path. The nature of revolution is the overthrowing of an existing hierarchy of control to replace it with a new one. You can be sure that you and your life are going to change. It might feel as if your hand is forced, or even if you are choosing to go with the process, that it is wild and out of your control. It will be. But that doesn’t make it unloving or unsafe. When revolution is sacred, it is divine love realigning your life. And although there will probably be chaos, you can be sure that the new order eventually imposed will be worth it. This is not a time to take a step back. It is time to take a step up. Do not compromise yourself, your values, your self worth. Watch for the red flags, and heed them. You will connect with your vigor, motivation, and vitality at this moment. The excitement and adrenaline will encourage your fighting spirit. And conflicts will have resolutions that will benefit everyone involved. Call on Mahuika to release your suppressed anger!
If you were attracted to Card 3:
Vesta - The Home Vesta is the Roman matriarchal goddess of the hearth, flame of the heart. Vesta and her six vestal virgins were revered as high priestesses who offered warmth and offerings to the people. Vesta offers stability and warmth to the home. She is associated with nourishment, especially baked foods. Her humble pet donkey protected her from an intruder, and donkeys are considered sacred to Vesta. The sign for Vesta is an altar table with twin flames rising from it. Nurturing Vesta welcomes you to feel "at home" in the temple of your inner being. Your external physical home reflects your inner home. Vesta offers a sanctuary of warmth to your hearth and clan. Her energy nurtures a haven of belonging. Center yourself and call upon the friendly fires of Vesta to bless your family and your home. If there is conflict within your home, she can assist. If there is a member away from home, due to travel or work, she can offer her protection. Call upon Vesta to oversee any changes you would like to make in your living situation. There is an undying flame within your soul, and it is the light, seed and spark of your consciousness. Your outer world reflects your inner world. Take a look around your home. You should take some time to connect to your clan, bond with those who offer you comfort, be where you belong, and also pay attention to those that are part of your soul family. Call on Vesta to help you find your home.
