When I read zodiac sign tea leaves for a client, I like to sit the cup’s handle where the client’s sun sign is.
My zodiac chart comes from Caroline Myss‘s Sacred Contracts board game. For this particular reading, my client was a Capricorn/Aquarius:
What I saw in the area of her highest potential (Capricorn) was a heart or happy llama — the left side was the hump or the left side of the heart and the right was somewhat staggered … going towards the house of spirituality …
As I knew her to be a professor with a lifelong passion for eastern philosophy and spiritual knowledge, I opened with the idea that the left side of the heart was like steps. “This would ring true,” I told her, “as you are always ascending, learning, spiritually, and your heart is in that work.”
I also noted that the head of a hound, seen almost at one o’clock, below, is situated so that the mind is in the house of self-expression (Gemini)
This image is in the above picture, at around four or five o’clock.
“Or you have help. A guide is alongside you. It’s not a hiker. It’s divine,” I said.
Finally, I had seen a curling, spiraling bloom in my client’s cup. I admit a tendency to reassure in my readings. I wanted to let her know that this was a metaphor giving her permission to know her inner beauty.
“Recognition of self doesn’t have to overwhelm … and become boastful. It was a single flower, not a bouquet,” I said.
“A reminder of your union, then, of your younger self, too?”
“Yes,” she said. “A nice reminder of how much I’ve grown and changed.”
