19 The Matriarch

No matter what god or higher power you believe in, we are all part of a collective consciousness, both in this world and the next. Whether your reading comes from tarot, angels or archetype cards we are delving into that collective consciousness. If you are present with a psychic or clairvoyant who has strong connections, you may be connected to individuals but more likely you will be communicating with part of this universal energy which connects us all. Much of the connection comes through our own energies and this is particularly true of online readings.

The matriarch is usually perceived as female but the archetype can also be male. It denotes a person who cares not only for children and family but also the disabled and the mentally ill. It can however have another meaning, the birth of something new in your life and often comes to remind us to nurture new beginnings lest they fail to thrive and wither before they have a chance to grow. The reversed matriarch warns of lost opportunities and signals that sometimes one door has to close for another to open.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: Having learned the party line, I began looking for the evidence that God made me. I could recall that before my younger brother was born my mother’s belly got very large. She told me that a baby was growing inside. I suspected that my father had something to do with it, but I wasn’t sure. Then one day my mother went to the hospital and came home with a much smaller belly and a new baby brother. She never mentioned God taking part in the process.

Angel Books

Complete Book of Tarot: Hail to the chief! When upright, the Emperor represents a person of authority, will, planning, organization, analysis, strategic thinking and phallic masculinity. Lo and behold! The Emperor is the Father Archetype, the Lord and Master who knows how to get things done. A powerful leader, he takes charge, puts things in order, and protects those in his domain. He rules with his mind rather than with his heart. The Emperor appears in a reading to remind you to step up to the plate, be true to your principles, and use your power to structure your life to accomplish what must be done. You need to set clear goals and establish firm limits so that you can provide stability and get the job done.

Angel Insights : I’ve heard and read far more stories from people who have encountered angels in human form. These angels offer information, comfort, or assistance, and then vanish. The people who interacted with the angel in human form will usually go back to the hospital or police station or store where they saw this helpful person and ask to speak to the individual who assisted them so they can thank them properly. ‘Never had anyone working here by that name and description’ is a standard response. It is only then that these folks realize that the person who saved their life, inspired them, or made them smile was really an angel. Yet when people reflect on the details of their experience with an angel in human form, they probably remember there being something different about this stranger they encountered, something different that was noticeable from the beginning. Angels assuming human form often have very kind eyes, for example, or have a calming, soothing energy that becomes infectious to those around them. They might seem to know everything about you, even though they are strangers. Angels who assume human form are often remarkably sweet tempered and say just the right thing. Or they might appear out of the blue just when help is required, and then vanish just as quickly afterward—without leaving footprints or tire tracks behind them.
