My Spirit fed, I set out on my new course- up the mountain, toward my destiny, to fulfill my path- walking from the past to the present…

Cards/Numbers: 3 of Coins/70, Princess of Coins/71, 2 of Coins/72

Card Images: see attached

First Impressions: And so, somewhere it happened. The apprentice became a master, of sorts. Do we ever become master when it comes to our Spirit- perhaps, when it comes to learning our own soul. But the journey goes on forever, and though much has been learned, there is excitement for the rest of the travel. And the Princess of Coins- she now represents me. The woman, who has grown in age and wisdom but still has the enthusiasm of a girl. In coming to terms with who I am/where I am, I find myself back in the present, sitting at the 2 of Coins- the anlemma again, I chuckle at the cosmic irony of it.

Masculine/Feminine/Neutral: neutral for the 3 and 2 of coins, feminine for the Princess of Coins

Senses: The air grows thin, as the elevation increases. The trip up the mountain is hard, my breathing is labored. The rocks bore into my feet. I rest for a moment, enjoying the view, the sun on my skin, the air cool and gentle.

Symbols: art/palette, peri-menopausal princess, apple, anlemma, Stonehenge

Story (intuitive): I continue my spiritual journey. And then, one day, it hits me- the fact that I am no longer the apprentice, and am now the master. And I am asked to be teacher, to guide an initiation of one I love. And I smile, as I realize now what I did not then- we are all learning, all apprentices to Divinity- and we teach and feed each other. And though I would not consider myself a master of Spirit, I am comfortable with being a teacher in my craft. And so I have come full circle. And I look in the mirror- and see the soul of a girl in the body of a woman. And I realize that my time is drawing shorter, this life is halfway complete. I have much to do, so much I want to learn. But I am happy, and proud of the wisdom and maturity that my years have given me, proud of the beauty that is mine- a beauty of a woman who has lived life fully, a Spirit fed. And as all these gifts come to me, I find myself stepping to the place where I have stopped to rest, and now I am here, in the present, the first half of the journey complete- the rest now hanging in the future.

I look over to my side, my consort beside me. And I ask him softly, “Why do I continually work so hard to keep walking uphill?”. He smiles, though his eyes are serious, “Because if you did not, you would never reach the top of the mountain.”. I smile, softly chuckle, and look at him. He sits there, my other consort beside him- both waiting to walk with me on this journey. But not all the way… for I realize that when I reach the top of the mountain, there the Hermit will be waiting. And there, it will be my journey alone- into the unknown, onto the next phase. But for now, they are here, and I walk, constantly moving between two worlds- both of which I love. The anlemma appears before us, as it has so often before. My other consort asks me, “Do you now understand its significance?”- and yes, now I do. A journey and lifetime later, yes- I finally understand.

Astrologic: 3 of Coins: week of the first quarter moon in Sagittarius, Princess of Coins: week of the full moon in Pisces, 2 of Coins: week of the last quarter moon in Gemini; planetary ruler: Mercury

Element: earth and ether

Keywords:
3 of Coins: master craftsman, teacher
Princess of Coins: child-like, youthful
2 of Coins: juggler, déjà vu

Meanings:
3 of Coins: becoming the master craftsman/teacher of a trade
Princess of Coins: traditionally a young girl with dark hair/eyes and the zodiac sign of Taurus. In this deck, it is the mature woman who is happy with who she is, and what she has accomplished, but still feels young at heart
2 of Coins: the ability to live in two worlds at once

Quote: "I have gained wisdom on my path, and continue the journey upward and onward, walking between two worlds.”
