Seven of Cups - Tarot & Tea

Hello again, Moonbeams! Welcome to this week's edition of Tarot & Tea. Our card for today is the dreamy Seven of Cups. This card traditionally depicts a figure who is contemplating seven floating cups which hold a variety of different things. Here is a person with a lot of options to consider! Not all of what's on offer is beneficial or realistic, so we must be careful in determining what's actually feasible for us.

Continuing our Summer Skin Care series, we wanted to talk about some ways you can incorporate them into your skin care routine and topical first aid.  Happy #floweressencefriday, moonbeams! The first flower essence that comes to mind for us is Self-Heal (Prunella vulgaris).  While it is not as popular in many herbal circles as it once was, this beautiful yet unassuming purple-flowered “weed” is described in the FES Repertory as “one of the most fundamental and broadly applicable remedies for true soul healing and balance”.  No matter your skin type, balance is truly what we’re after in seeking healthy, radiant...

King of Cups - Tarot & Tea

Hey, sweet Moonbeams! Glad to have you here for this week's Tarot & Tea. Today, I've pulled the King of Cups. He is a stoic figure, indeed. Although his emotions run very deep, he is able to hold himself apart from their tumultuous influence. His decisions are just and rational, regardless of his personal feelings in a situation. His calm demeanor and emotional stability comes from a deep-rooted sense of security in himself. Because of this, the King of Cups embodies tremendous grace and patience with others. He accepts people's differences and limitations, showing understanding when those around him fall...
