Watchtower of the North.

Posted on 18 January, 2018 at 3:15 Comments comments (0)

Today's card for us from the Witches Wisdom Oracle deck is Watchtower of the North, with the Keyword Winter. The cards this week are tending to run in parallel with current cycles and the time of year, and today's card is no exception. Where I live we are still in the grips of winter, with blustery, wintry showers and freezing temperatures being a common theme over the last few days. It's meant I've stayed in the warm and dry at home whenever I can, not wanting to go out and face the elements...

Moon.

Posted on 17 January, 2018 at 3:45 Comments comments (0)

The Moon, with the Keyword Cycles, is our card today from the Witches' Wisdom Oracle deck, and is quite timely really as we currently have a New Moon. The moon waxes and wanes, cycles begin and end, and patterns repeat themselves until the lessons have been understood and learned. One door in our life closes before another opens, we finish one chapter before starting the next. All of these things go on day in day out in our lives, and sometimes we don't really notice or think about it, and ot...

Familiar.

Posted on 16 January, 2018 at 3:50 Comments comments (0)

Familiar, with the Keyword Guardian, is our card with a message today from the Witches' Wisdom Oracle deck. This is a reminder to us that we are never alone and that we always have someone watching out for us, ready to help us when we need it. We may receive this help from a friend, relative or person we barely know, but often it can come in the form of an animal. A lot of people have an animal they're close to, such as a pet or perhaps a wild animal like as a bird that they often see when th...

Altar.

Posted on 15 January, 2018 at 3:25 Comments comments (0)

After a break for the festivities over Christmas and New Year, followed by a bout of flu that knocked us off course, I'm finally back with our daily cards again. This week I'm using the Witches' Wisdom Oracle deck, and today's card is Altar, with the Keyword Dedication.

 

Looking at this card you can see a collection of items that are important and relevant to the person who's altar this is. They can be used to collect together their thoughts, in spiritual practices an...

The 4 of Swords and the King of Pentacles.

Posted on 22 December, 2017 at 6:35 Comments comments (0)

The last cards of the week from the Happy Tarot are the 4 of Swords and the King of Pentacles. The figure on the 4 of Swords is lying down, resting after fighting a battle, indicating it's time to take some time out and that others can take it from here. The King of Pentacles also seems to be at peace after giving his time and resources to those who need it. Both of these cards make me think of the run up to the Christmas celebrations; some may feel as though it's a battle they need to get th...

The Fool and Temperance.

Posted on 21 December, 2017 at 3:55 Comments comments (0)

The Fool and Temperance are our cards today from the cute and kitsch Happy Tarot. The Fool is leaping around the place, happy with the hand life has dealt him, and eager and ready to go on new adventures. Temperance is less energetic, and shows a quieter version of happiness and satisfaction, reminding us that we don't need to go to excesses in order to still have a good time. These cards work well together, particularly as Temperance calms down the possible risk taking approach of the Fool. ...

3 of Wands and the Ace of Swords reversed.

Posted on 20 December, 2017 at 3:50 Comments comments (0)

I've drawn the 3 of Wands and the Ace of Swords reversed from the Happy Tarot for us today. I don't often use reversals, and I thought the cards in this deck were all upright, so I was quite surprised when I saw this. I could have flipped it back so it was the right way up again and read it as normal, but I thought there was some significance to it being upside down, so I decided to leave it this way round.

The 3 of Wands shows a person (and their cat) looking out to sea, where there ar...

The 10 of Cups and the 8 of Cups.

Posted on 19 December, 2017 at 4:40 Comments comments (0)

The 10 and 8 of Cups are our cards from the Happy Tarot today. The 10 has a picture of happiness, contentedness and harmony, while the 8 has a darker picture that looks a lot sadder as the person in it is leaving behind something they once cared about. Looking at the cards side by side it almost seems that the tree to the right on the 10 is the same one on the left in the 8, so in this sense it makes me feel that there are always two sides to the same story, and much as we can see one side or...

The Tower and The Empress.

Posted on 18 December, 2017 at 3:45 Comments comments (0)

I thought the Happy Tarot may be a good deck to use this week as the days are quite dark and dreary at the moment and this deck can inject lots of colour into our day. The cards I've drawn for us are the Tower and the Empress. These two cards seem to be quite at odds with each other, with the Tower showing destruction and the Empress happiness and abundance. To me, this is saying that to get to where we ultimately want to be in life we're likely to have to go through some trials and tribulati...

The 6 of Wands and the 10 of Swords.

Posted on 15 December, 2017 at 3:55 Comments comments (0)

It's the final day of the week for us with the Vanessa Tarot, and today's cards are the 6 of Wands and the 10 of Swords. The 6 of Wands is about victory and abundance, doing well and getting the accolades we deserve for our success. The 10 of Swords appears to have a much hasher message for us; feeling demoralised, upset and in turmoil, with pain and worry that needs to be cleared away before being able to move onto a new beginning. It reminds us that even when someone looks confident and su...

The King of Swords and the Queen of Cups.

Posted on 14 December, 2017 at 4:05 Comments comments (0)

The King of Swords and the Queen of Cups are the cards with a message for us from the Vanessa Tarot today. The Kings of each suit embody maturity, confidence and the realisation of the lessons and ideals of the suit they represent, whereas the Queens of each suit relate to our softer sides, caring and nurturing, while still being strong. These two cards have again many similarities, but also some almost opposite traits. The King of Swords shows a strong willed person, it relates to intellige...

the Emperor and the Knave of Swords.

Posted on 13 December, 2017 at 3:40 Comments comments (0)

The Emperor and the Knave of Swords are our cards today from the Vanessa Tarot. The girls in both card are in similar positions again, with one hand outstretched, looking as though they are confident standing up in front of others to get their message across, though the messages they deliver may be quite different. The Emperor relates to rules, laws and authority, whereas the Knave of Swords relates more to the vitality and rawness of youth, particularly having the courage to say and do our ...

The 5 of Coins and the 3 of Swords.

Posted on 12 December, 2017 at 4:05 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of Coins and the 3 of Swords are the cards I've drawn for us today from the Vanessa Tarot. The people in both cards are in similar positions, looking down and giving the impression that life isn't going very well for them. The 5 of Coins is set in what looks to be a derelict place with plaster falling off the walls and cold stone floors. In contrast, the 3 of Swords has a more luxurious setting, with opulent surroundings and furniture, plus the woman in the card is better dressed, so mu...

The Devil and the 9 of Cups.

Posted on 11 December, 2017 at 4:25 Comments comments (0)

I'm using the Vanessa Tarot this week, and the cards I've drawn for us today are The Devil and the 9 of Cups. The Devil shows a man chained up by his lover, though it's unclear if he's in this position through choice of or not. The woman looks to be in control of the situation, so this can relate to us in several ways- we could be the person in control of a situation where others are feeling restricted, or we could be the ones who being oppressed and unable to move freely. Neither position is...

8 of Swords and the 3 of Swords.

Posted on 8 December, 2017 at 3:35 Comments comments (0)

The final cards of the week for us from the Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot are the 8 of Swords and the 3 of Swords. Both of these cards are about how we view ourselves and our situations, and probably looking at them in a pessimistic way rather than trying to see the good in them. The 8 of Swords relates to feeling trapped and that there's no way out of our current situation or dilemma. It can be easier to retract into our safe place than to try and push the boundaries and move away from what we kno...

Justice and the Queen of Wands.

Posted on 7 December, 2017 at 3:50 Comments comments (0)

Justice and the Queen of Wands are our cards with a message today from the Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot. Justice reminds us to act with honour and integrity; whatever we do now we may have to account for at a later date, so as long as we act in an ethical way we can try to eliminate any negative consequences that could come back to haunt us at a later date. Keeping things in balance is important for our lives to run as smoothly as possible, and to ensure we get the best deal possible in matters th...

The 2 of Wands and The Tower.

Posted on 6 December, 2017 at 3:50 Comments comments (0)

Our two cards from the Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot today are the 2 of Wands and The Tower. The 2 of Wands echoes the precarious position that is also shown in The Tower card, and so reinforces the message about being careful and aware that what we have can change at a moment's notice. We may have plans we want to put into action, but external forces can influence the situation and prevent us doing what we hoped, or alter matters to the extent that we have to re-think it all again before being abl...

The 8 of Discs of the Knave of Swords.

Posted on 5 December, 2017 at 3:50 Comments comments (0)

The 8 of Discs and the Knave of Swords are our cards today from the Nicoletta Cecolli Tarot. These cards are about learning and practising new skills, putting our knowledge into action and sating our curiosity. There is so much around us that we still need to explore and learn about, even as an expert in our chosen field we will never know absolute everything about it, so this is a good reminder for us not to become big headed, to think we're better than we actually are or to become complacen...

The Queen of Discs and the 2 of Cups.

Posted on 4 December, 2017 at 4:05 Comments comments (0)

I'm using another deck that Chris gave me this week; this time it's the Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot, and the cards I've drawn for us today are the Queen of Discs and the 2 of Cups.

 

The Queen of Discs is about abundance, working towards our goals and nurturing. There are people in our lives we care about and who need us, and this card reminds us that our work isn't done in this area yet. To be honest, is it ever? It doesn't have to feel like hard work, though, as we can a...

Temperance and the 7 of Pentacles.

Posted on 1 December, 2017 at 4:05 Comments comments (0)

We have two cards today that have already made separate appearances previously this week; Temperance and the 7 of Pentacles. There has been an ongoing message of patience, taking stock, pausing and balance throughout the week, and today is no exception. I like it when the messages are similar several days in a run, as it means it's ok for us to continue in this vein until things have come together in our lives. It reinforces the message and makes it clear to us that we need to listen to and a...
