The final card of the week for us from the Housewives Tarot is Judgement- depicted here by a woman wearing a large cut of meat and standing on her weighing scales. This card encourages us to see things as they really are, warts and all, including ourselves. While we're having a good look at ourselves, we should be looking to accept ourselves as we are, and take credit for all the good we've done too, not just be critical. If we can raise our self esteem and try to be happy with who we are we ...Read Full Post »

The Lovers is our card today from the 50's inspired Housewives Tarot. It shows a man and woman in a convertible together, obviously happily in love, but not necessarily looking at the road or taking notice of other important things going on around them. The car is in a nose dive, so implies things aren't quite as rosy or heading in quite the direction that was originally planned or desired. Their actions have caused other consequences, some planned and some unplanned or unexpected. This remin...Read Full Post »

The 6 of Swords is our card today from the Housewives Tarot. This card is traditionally about travel and leaving behind our troubles, getting ready to embark on a better life. It's about transition and moving out of the dark and into the light-which is particularly apt today due to the new moon. After the moon's complete darkness we'll start to gradually see more and more of her every night until the full moon in two week's time. It also ties in with the approaching Summer Solstice. We're not...Read Full Post »

I wasn't able to put up a post yesterday, but hopefully we're back to some sort of normality today, and this week's deck that I've chosen to use is the Housewives Tarot.
The Queen of Wands is today's card, and this is quite apt for me as I've managed to do a fair amount that needed doing around the house recently. There is energy and passion here, encouraging us to get the jobs done that have been building up, but at the same time we need to leave some time and energy to do our own fun ...Read Full Post »

The Wheel is today's card from the quirky Tarot of the Sweet Twilight. The Wheel, or Wheel of Fortune as it can also be known, reminds us that life is cyclical and that there are ups as well as downs, good and bad times that come our way. Some people may appear to be luckier than others, and some always seems to be having a hard time. Is there a reason for this? Do some people just have better or worse luck than others? In reality, much as there are some things that we have little control ove...Read Full Post »

When I first changed to this deck for the page 9 days ago, the card I drew was the 3 of Chalices, and today it has come out for us again. The message is still relevant; we need to take some time out to have some fun and not work ourselves to the bone. Enjoy being with friends and family, do something we enjoy, relax. This follows on nicely from the cards earlier in the week encouraging us to find a new hobby or pursuit to try. We have so many things we “have” to do, and it can fee...Read Full Post »

The Hermit is our card today, possibly encouraging us to get on with our studies after deciding what we wanted to learn or try yesterday.
This card is also advising us that we may need to spend some time alone to focus on what's important to us and to help us concentrate on how we want to proceed from here. Hopefully, we can start to realise that we have more knowledge and understand what's happening around us a lot more than we previously thought we did. It can be easy to be distracted...Read Full Post »

The Knave of Chalices from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight shows a young man holding his goblet and and standing on a large book, floating on the water with a dolphin playing behind him.
This card reminds us that it's never too late for us to start learning and working towards something that we're interested in and want to do for no other reason than because we want to. Not because we have to, but because we have a passion we want to fulfil. This could be a course, a skill,...Read Full Post »

While I was shuffling the cards today I had a “jumper,” a card that flew out the pack and onto the floor. I had a quick look at it, put it back and continued shuffling for a bit longer. When I stopped and drew my card for the page you can guess what it was....it was the “jumper,” namely the Ace of Swords. I love it when these sorts of things happen; it really enforces the message of the card to me.
This Ace of Swords shows a girl holding a large looking sword acr...Read Full Post »

The Empress is today's card from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight. This card often has a picture of a pregnant woman to denote fertility, motherhood and nurturing. In this card there is a woman, but she's shown looking after the whole world- that's just how awesome she is!She is partly submerged in water, relating to her emotional connectedness with everything around her, and her crown is a symbol of royalty, or being in charge of what's going on around her.
We may be feeling...Read Full Post »

I'll be in and out a bit over the next two weeks so I won't be posting quite as regularly as usual, but when I do I'll be using my most favourite deck ever, the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight.
Today's card for us from the Sweet Twilight is the 3 of Chalices/Cups. Often you see three figures in this card dancing, drinking and celebrating together. In this version it all looks a lot more subdued, but you still get the feeling of happiness and celebration. The girl sits in here hanging chair ...Read Full Post »

The final cards of the week from the Tarot of the Trees are Justice, the 8 of Pentacles and The Emperor. There have been a lot of Major Arcana cards drawn this week, and today is no exception with Justice and The Emperor surrounding the 8 of Pentacles, looking out for us and advising us on our ventures. The 8 of Pentacles reminds us to pay attention to detail in our work and in our undertakings. We need to do our best, persevere and double check the details in what we're doing. This is a card...Read Full Post »

Today's cards for us from the Tarot of the Trees are the King of Cups, the 10 of Swords and the Page of Cups. The King of Cups shows a large cup in the middle of a well established tree, the 10 of Swords shows a felled tree with swords in it's trunk, it's sap flowing out and into the ground, and the Page of Cups shows a cup full to the brim with water underneath a waterfall with a fairly young tree nearby.
The King of Cups is the last card in the suit of Cups, and so ...Read Full Post »

All 3 cards drawn today from The Tarot of the Trees have the elements of new beginnings and potential about them. They are The Empress, The Fool and the Ace of Swords.
The Empress shows a tree full of fruit, with baskets of fruit at it's roots. This is about birthing and creation; what can we create today, what can we give shape and form to? The Empress is often portrayed as a pregnant woman due to it's connectedness to motherhood, productivity and nurturing. Here thi...Read Full Post »

Today's cards from The Tarot of the Trees are The Wheel of the Year (often known as the Wheel of Fortune), the Ace of Cups and the 3 of Pentacles. They are look quite different with a mixture of colours and themes, but of course trees feature in them all.
The Wheel of the Year reminds us about cycles in life and how there are ups as well as downs. The only thing we can count on in life is change; time moves on regardless of whether we're ready or not for the events that unfold around us...Read Full Post »

The deck I've chosen to use this week is Dana Driscoll's Tarot of the trees. An unusual deck in that all the cards are depicted by trees, with no people in sight. For a change, I also drew 3 cards today instead of 1, and was surprised to see that all 3 were from the Major Arcana. As it's the traditional start of working week then many of us may see it as a new start or time to put plans into action, so 3 Major Arcana cards helps to reinforce this and encourage us on our way.

Today is one of the reasons I love cards.....you couldn't make up some of the coincidences and synchronicities that you get with them. The first card is almost identical to yesterday's, but with the figure facing the opposite direction. It also has it's eyes closed (yesterday they were open) and you see one hand belonging to the figure and one that could belong to someone else. The second card is the same as yesterday's one from Soul Cards 2, plus it jumped out of the pack when I was shufflin...Read Full Post »

The colours are remarkably similar in today's Soul Cards that I've drawn- to me this shows how connected the two of them are regarding the message they're giving. While I was shuffling the cards it crossed my mind how I had been doing other things that didn't really need doing this morning, and thinking about how many jobs that did need doing but I keep procrastinating over and putting off, then when I saw the cards I'd drawn I immediately saw the thoughts I'd just been having in them. The fi...Read Full Post »

Today's Soul Cards again have similarities in that each has a face in the top right corner and a figure at the bottom of the card. There are so many different types of drawings in these two decks, so it always makes me smile when similar feeling cards are drawn together. It really is telling me to listen to the message when this happens, plus they can also represent two sides of the same story.
The colours are, however, quite different in these two cards today, with r...Read Full Post »

Today's cards from Soul Cards 1 & 2 have quite striking similarities showing figures with red fire/light in their cores. The first is dominated by a red circle with red lines radiating out from it with a figure encircling it. The second shows a woman with red fire in her stomach and in the third eye area of her forehead.
To me this is very much telling, if not shouting, at us today to listen to our intuition. Listen to our inner voices, the uneasy feeling we have in th...Read Full Post »
