King of Cups - Tarot & Tea

Hey, sweet Moonbeams! Glad to have you here for this week's Tarot & Tea. Today, I've pulled the King of Cups. He is a stoic figure, indeed. Although his emotions run very deep, he is able to hold himself apart from their tumultuous influence. His decisions are just and rational, regardless of his personal feelings in a situation. His calm demeanor and emotional stability comes from a deep-rooted sense of security in himself. Because of this, the King of Cups embodies tremendous grace and patience with others. He accepts people's differences and limitations, showing understanding when those around him fall...

Feeling Overwhelmed & Fearful?

In a time when so many of us feel overwhelmed with the state of the world and apprehension and even fear of what’s to come, flower essences may be just the energetic emotional support we need.  Two of the amazing FES Flourish Formula’s come straight to mind.

Peace - Tarot & Tea

Avoidance of Truth Haindl Tarot Precarious Peace tarot Two of Swords

Peace - Tarot & Tea

Hi, Moonbeams! Welcome to Tarot & Tea. Today’s card is the Two of Swords. Although this card has been titled “Peace” by the Haindl Tarot and other decks, beginning with the Thoth Tarot, the interpretation is not particularly peaceful. More so, the presence of this card in a reading reveals the underlying tension of a seemingly serene situation. Indicative of repressed emotions, hidden stress and stifled hunches, the Two of Swords has completely lost touch with the bold truth and clarity embodied by the ace of the suit. The Two of Swords is accompanied by a passive attitude which stems...

Fairy Folk Around the World

To mark the 1st Annual Fairy Festival happening this Saturday at our own Arcata Plaza, we would love to make #herbalwisdomwednesday all about the wee magical folk around the world and the plant & herbs associated with them.  When many of us think of Fairies, we imagine the tricky sprites, pixies and elf-like creatures from the Gaelic-Celtic-Northern European traditions and, naturally, many of the plants and trees native to those areas are associated with them. A couple of examples include: -Foxglove (Digitalis) have also been called Fairy Gloves and Fairyweed and the little spots inside the flowers are said to...
