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.
Upright Meanings: progress, healing, calmer waters, sorrow, travel overseas, lethargy, relief, moving forward, spirit guides, moving on, overcoming hardship, feeling deflated, harmony, escaping, calm after a storm, journey, things calming down, journeys, running away, stability, going on holiday, travelling, holding onto negativity
Reversed Meanings: defeat, floods, stormy relationships, return from travel, eloping, difficulties, causing trouble, lack of progress, nowhere to run, slow healing, obstacles, out of frying pan into fire, disrupted/cancelled travel, stuck, trapped, delay, standing your ground, rocking the boat, changing/ abandoned plans, trouble coming, overwhelmed, instability
Very much an archetype that is welcomed by those developing their spiritual connections. This card may come as a collective energy or an individual. Ask for clarification on this. If you draw this archetype in reverse it often represents a block in our spiritual progress. Time and patience are necessary and a willingness to listen and wait. Try asking questions about things that are NOT related to your chosen path; this often awakens deeper connections.
