Excerpt from "Your Soul Purpose"

by Margaret Ann Lembo

Gemstones are powerful tools to enhance and awaken you in all aspects of life including your soul purpose. In this Gemstone Guardians Cards deck there are 11 soul purpose archetypes that express different parts of our inner self, the qualities or attributes of which find their expression in different professions clustered around each archetype. For each soul purpose archetype, there are 4 different career cards, each aligned with a gemstone that supports the positive expression of this aspect of the archetype.

The cards can help us gain insight and give guidance on any issues/questions we have on our life (these can concern our actual careers in this world but are not limited to this). Like other oracle cards these cards can be used in different spreads – single card, 3 card spread, etc.

How to Use the Cards

Pose a question / an issue / a problem on which you would like guidance. For example, “How can I improve the relationship with my partner around the issue of XXXX?”

The card drawn shows an aspect of a profession archetype on one side, relevant to the question posed. Continuing the example: You draw a card from the Investigator archetype, say, “Archeologist.” This points you to your own “inner archeologist,” the part of you that resonates with the skills/attributes of an archeologist (curiosity, interest in the past, love for detail, meticulous careful work, patience, perseverance, etc.), which can help you find insight into your question.

In this case you could say: “I need to investigate the origins of this issue XXXX further; carefully excavate more of its background; work slowly, methodically, and meticulously uncover layer after layer, detail after detail with patience and perseverance--e.g., why it happened, how it happened, who was involved, etc.--in order to be better informed / be able to discuss the issue with more authority and understanding / possibly change my attitude, etc.”

The gemstone aligned with this archetype aspect brings additional insight through the guidance in words and support through its vibration.

The affirmation connected to both gemstone and archetype aspect helps ground the insight and supports you in achieving your goal
