This card signifies a culmination of your efforts and hard work.
If there is something you have been working hard on, you may be wondering if it will all be worthwhile. Three of Stones assures you that all your planning and dedication have indeed paid off and asks you to take a look around and give yourself a pat on the back for all your achievements…even if they are not quite as much as you had hoped up to this point. The key now is to keep moving forward. There is even more that you can achieve, and it would probably be a good idea to work with others rather than alone as the owls represent strength, growth and inter-connectedness.
Whatever you are working on, you can rest assured that you have hit on the right plan and should keep on keeping on.
This is one of the most positive cards in the deck!
Ten of Mirrors signals contentment and joy. It alludes to marriage, enduring friendships or even the start of an exciting new adventure. The main advice here is to simply enjoy it and let things be. Very little effort is required on your part now and trying to control everything (especially a romantic situation) could send it afoul.
This card is encouraging you that you have achieved emotional fulfilment in the present cycle of your life, and you are now ready for an emerging new one.
Keep on keeping on!
125 tinned chickpeas, drained & rinsed
1 tomato, chopped
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tsp olive oil
Half tsp cumin
Salt & pepper to taste
What to do:
Place the quinoa in a fine-mesh sieve and rinse under cold, running water until the water no longer foams.
Bring the quinoa, salt and water to the boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the quinoa is tender which should take about 20 minutes.
Stir in the chickpeas, sweetcorn, chopped tomato, lime juice and olive oil. Season with cumin, salt and pepper.
This card is about overcoming disenchantment and gaining healing through forgiveness.
The Five of Mirrors reflects a disappointment or emotional set-back but says that it is important to keep this in perspective and see what can be salvaged. The implication here is that the loss is only partial and may well be restored. All relationships hit down patches and this card indicates that lack of communication may be the problem. You may be feeling hurt, deceived or disappointed and tempted to walk away, but you are being encouraged to remember the half-full, half-empty syndrome. How you see the bottle depends on your perspective but can make all the difference to your response.
Remember that wounds heal faster and bear fewer scars when you come from a place of forgiveness and look for the positive. Above all, keep communicating.
