"Be an Angel with Divine Powers"
Symbol Code: SM000012     Symbol Name: Tapuat   (Category: CYCLE OF EXISTENCE )

Tapuat(Child): The Tapuat or labyrinth is the Hopi symbol for mother and child. The cradle, as it is also called, symbolizes that from where we all come and shall eventually return. The stages of our lives in general are represented by the lines serving as our umbilical cord to the ever watchful and protective eyes of our Mother. The center of the labyrinth stands for the center of life, the amniotic sac where we were all nurtured from the very beginning. This symbol is also sometimes referred to as “the journey”, which again, “the journey we call life.”


Symbol Code: SM000779     Symbol Name: Flowers   (Category: CYCLE OF EXISTENCE )

Flowers(Ideal Society): As we would guess, flowers possess symbol meanings of joy, beauty, growth, sensitivity and unfolding. They are predominant features on the six of cups and four of rods, but they are seen sprinkled throughout many deck renditions. Flowers are all about opening up and receiving the light of love, joy and compassion into our lives. They remind us of the better things in life, the good times, the sweet smell of success, and the beauty that surrounds us if only we open up to its presence.


Symbol Code: SM000780     Symbol Name: House   (Category: CYCLE OF EXISTENCE )

House(Ideal Society): In houses we live, die, play, cry, grow, hide, dream, the list goes on. As such, they are symbols of our deepest secrets and the tenderest parts of our hearts. House symbol meanings also deal with protection and the value that we feel we must guard against theft. When houses jump up to our vision in a reading it may be a sign that our security is threatened, or it may convey the opposite, and we should not be concerned with safety and we are already protected.


Symbol Code: SM000986     Symbol Name: Footprint of the Buddha (Buddhapada, Budda’s Feet)   (Category: CYCLE OF EXISTENCE )

Footprint of the Buddha (Buddhapada, Budda’s Feet)(DETACHMENT): The footprint of the Buddha is represents the Buddha’s teachings, and his continued (symbolic) presence on earth. Paradoxically, they are also viewed as reminders of the Buddha’s absence, and the Buddhist ideal of detachment. The emblem is most likely modeled on the Vedic tradition of venerating the feet of deities; similar emblems exist honoring Vishnu and other Hindu gods. In many places, the Buddhapada marks a place where the Buddha is believed to have visited in his lifetime; these are venerated as holy places.


Symbol Code: SM001114     Symbol Name: Starlight Symbolism   (Category: CYCLE OF EXISTENCE )

Starlight SymbolismAh stars, what's not to love about those twinkly beauties in the heavens? In a nutshell, stars are globs of gasses that are held together by their own gravity. That's a bright bit of symbolism, right there. This way of existence suggests self-reliance.
Need a reminder of how you radiate your own force-field of power? Need reassurance that you can accomplish something grand by your own true grit? Stars lead solitary lives in the crazy chaos of the cosmos. They keep living, dying, rolling and functioning though. They keep shining by their own perfect design. You're perfectly designed too, and you can turn your high beams on to shine whenever you need too. I love that kind of star-lesson.


Symbol Code: SM001139     Symbol Name: Planets   (Category: CYCLE OF EXISTENCE )

Planets(EPHEMERAL WORLD): This one wasn't a common dream symbol among the requests for interpretations, but there were a few questions, and I dream of planets pretty often, so I'm throwing it in the mix. When those bright beauties light up my dream life, I associate the dream planet with the actual personality of the planet. Our Greek friends can help with this (you know, Mars, the god of war would indicate aggressive, heat and assertion). They're all archetypes and can enhance our understanding. Non-specific planets speak to us of influence (what orbits your awareness, and what kind of influence do you have over it - or vice versa).


Symbol Code: SM001147     Symbol Name: Iris   (Category: CYCLE OF EXISTENCE )

Iris(DISSOLUTION OF THE WORLD): In Greek the term iris means "rainbow." What a perfect symbol of balance. It takes just the right about of atmospheric moisture and light to create that magnificent visual effect. All the colors of the rainbow together are symbolic of cosmic harmony. But what about the flower? The iris flower is symbolic of the same kind of harmony. It is honored as one of the most delicate beauties in the ancient world. It is a symbol of the reconciliation between humankind and the divine. The flower is also a symbol of the goddess, Iris, who served as a psychopomp (a guide for souls) to humans - a liaison between godkind and mankind. To Temperantia, the iris is a symbol of bittersweet awareness. The sword-like leaves are reminiscent of the wounds of battle, our internal scars endured through lessons learned at the tip of a sword (through living life in unconscious action rather than conscious awareness). With time and a willingness to endure the temporary discomfort of restraint, the human soul blossoms into a the delicate splendor that is illustrated in the iris blossom. Good things can grow from the battlegrounds of life, and Temperantia describes this paradox in gentle and deft ways.


Symbol Code: SM001148     Symbol Name: Aquamarine   (Category: CYCLE OF EXISTENCE )

Aquamarine(DISSOLUTION OF THE WORLD): This gemstone has a few symbolic angles that jive with Pisces. Firstly, it's a beryl, which is comprised of hexagonal crystals. Hexagons are six sided. Big deal, right? Well it is, because the number six is symbolic of love, unity, harmony. Six is ruled by Venus, the goddess of compassion, healing and of course, love. So, for Pisces, the structural make-up of aquamarine expresses the vibration of love. In other words, this stone both meshes and enhances Pisces' ability to reflect benevolence in their daily activities.
Secondly, aquamarine gets its colors from impurities in their environment. In the same way, some of the most powerfully psychic Pisces get their power from conflicts they've had to endure in their lives. In other words, Pisces who exhibit the most robust and dynamic gifts of their sign, have typically had to deal with some kind of trauma(s). In essence, like aquamarine, Pisces are able to shine, glitter and express their divine colorful selves by filtering through impurities in their life experience.


Symbol Code: SM001149     Symbol Name: Molting Birds   (Category: CYCLE OF EXISTENCE )

Molting Birds(DISSOLUTION OF THE WORLD): Speaking of birds in general..MOLTING birds are a key focus on themes of reawakening or rebirth. Molting is a sign of renewal. Much like the snake sheds its skin to discard past influences - birds do the same thing. Birds lose their feathers - and their kind of bald for awhile, but they re-grow them...it's like the restart button in Nature. It's a great lesson for us to observe because feathers become, after a time, essentially dead material. They're like fingernails or hair - made mostly of keratin that no longer produces life on a cellular level at some point. We cut those things off, to make room for new growth. Birds are doing the same thing when they molt.
Different types of molting birds will impart specialized meaning. I'd like to touch on a few fabulous feathered friends who molt once a year in an effort to land more profound meaning of renewal for you.
