“Love and compassion are not tender but rather invincible powers of our being that channel tremendous cosmic waves. They do not need a secure environment to be revealed; they can be expressed proudly and openly even in the most strident and noisy marketplace and in the face of strong opposing forces.”
~ Unlocking the 7 Secret Powers of the Heart: A Practical Guide to Living in Trust and Love
Q: How do I know what the cards are trying to say. Is there a guide I can use to know what they mean in general until I am more comfortable with them?
A: There are general concepts that equate to specific cards. Most importantly though, listen to your intuition and look for patterns in your readings. If you get drawn specific cards repeatedly when asking the same sort of questions, you may have your own associations that differ from these.
Ace cards tend to key into timing:

A form of quartz, amethyst is a bringer of intense spiritual growth. Strong healer of addiction. Quiet the negative mind, and clear negative energy. Connect with spirit.
A stone associated with the Greek God Dionysus, it was said that amethyst got it’s color from tears and wine spilled out of Dionysus’ cup. Ancient Greeks and Romans believed that you would not get drunk if drinking from a goblet made of Amethyst.
