THE BLESSING OF THE ROSE QUEEN AND THE LADY OF HEARTS
An old legend tells that at the time of the winter solstice,
all of those souls, who will incarnate in the coming year,
draw close to the Earth.The Divine Mother then
takes a single petal from the Great Rose of Life
and places it in the heart of each of those souls who will.
As that soul then is born and grows throughout its life
and awakens its true self, that single petal will blossom
in the heart of the individual, becoming a living
Rose of Life that will bless the world.
I created this shrine as a dedication to the blessing
of the Rose Queen and the Lady of Hearts.
An ode to the mystery of the angelic realms
and the divine feminine and the resurrection
of the feminine mysteries. On top is the
Crown of the Immaculate and the two doors
are covered with images of the Madonna and Christ,
embellished with charms of the occult and esoteric,
symbols of fortune and blessing, a key to unlock the mysteries,
a scissors to cut the veil,
a rose and a heart to depict the Heart of the Mysteries,
miniature tarot cards, vintage playing cards and a crucifix,
sprinkled with black rhinestones.
The two door knobs are each a miniature shrine in itself.
From each one dangles a tiny red heart and inside are images of the Lady,
decorated with stars and a rose. The doors are lined with red velvet,
depicting the power of the Blessing and the Mystery.
The heart opening is outlined with blue roses - symbol of the Rose Queen.
When you open the shrine, the Lady of Hearts is revealed.
She is displayed on a handmade tarot cards,
and each door is lined with altered tarot cards
and a vintage Queen of Hearts, as well as miniature tarot cards.
The left door displays the mighty Archangel Michael
and the Angel of Judgement.
