The Knave of Chalices.

Posted on 17 January, 2020 at 5:05 Comments comments (0)

The final card of the week for us is the Knave of Chalices, with a young man surrounded by, and floating on, books. The water around him relates to emotions, to this shows he enjoys learning and doing things he loves. This is the sort of person who tries to work somewhere they enjoy, who makes an income from their hobby or who spends lots of their spare time on their hobbies. This is a good reminder that life isn't all about working to pay bills or doing what's expected of us by other people....

The Knight of Swords.

Posted on 16 January, 2020 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

The Knight of Swords card has a thoughtful looking scene with the people in it having been involved in some sort of communication with each other and they are now thinking over what was said and considering how to implement any plans they discussed. The Knights in Tarot like to get going on their missions, while the suit of swords relates to communication and seeing situations clearly, so it won't be long until their ideas are put into practice. In our lives how many times have we formulated ...

The 8 of Wands.

Posted on 15 January, 2020 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

I love the feel of this 8 of Wands card as although there's the sense of movement and growth, the woman also appears to be serene and taking it all in her stride. It seems as though nothing much has changed in her approach from when matters were slower and her life calmer than it's become, and now her plans have taken off in a fast (and possibly even unexpected) way she's coping with it all fine, probably due to the amount of time she spent beforehand ensuring everything was ready and in plac...

The Star.

Posted on 14 January, 2020 at 6:20 Comments comments (0)

The Star is another card from the Major Arcana for us from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight. This is full of hope, encouraging us to follow our dreams and put our ideas and plans into practice as we'll have a great chance of seeing them become reality. They'll need to be tended, like a plant needs to be watered and cared for, but if we keep our efforts up and put in the necessary time we'll be on the right track to achieve our dreams. We could find an extra bit of sparkle in the form of an une...

Justice.

Posted on 10 January, 2020 at 5:10 Comments comments (0)

All the cards so far on our page this week from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight have been from the Major Arcana, and today is no exception as we have a message from Justice. The woman closes her eyes to help her concentrate on the balancing act she has to perform in order to make sure everyone gets their just desserts. She works hard at ensuring people get the results that are right for them, even if the consequences can feel harsh at the time. We get back what we put out to the world, but th...

The Fool.

Posted on 9 January, 2020 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

The Fool card in the Sweet Twilight Tarot shows a jester made to look like a puppet with strings attached to his limbs and head. Is he being controlled by external forces or is it part of his act? He has a drum and appears to be marching, which brings to mind the saying “marching to the beat of your own drum,” so to me that means he's tricking us into thinking other people are “pulling his strings” and he is actually allowing them to think this is the case until he's r...

The Emperor.

Posted on 8 January, 2020 at 5:00 Comments comments (0)

The Emperor card from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight has a line down the middle of it with different situations on either side, but with The Emperor himself still remaining in both. His appearance differs in each scenario too; he's adapted to the circumstances and decided how he needs to look and act in them. The Emperor's in charge of matters, in control and sure of himself, regardless on the position he's in. This may mean using diplomacy, acting in a way that people understand better or c...

The Sun.

Posted on 7 January, 2020 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

The first draw of the new year for our page is The sun from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight. The Sun is generally thought to be a positive and reassuring card as it shows we're on the right track and by continuing in this direction we can encourage more of the same to come into our lives. What's often overlooked or forgotten, however, is that to get to this point we may have to suffer or go through some hard times first, which is where some people may give up and feel the upset may not be wor...

Thursday's Soul Card.

Posted on 12 December, 2019 at 6:10 Comments comments (0)

This Soul Card really depicts the things going on in this person's mind. They have their eyes closed, concentrating on their thoughts which appear to be quite important to them as they're dominating so much of this picture. How many times do we concentrate more on our thoughts or worries than what's actually going on in life around us? It's healthy for us to contemplate matters, work out strategies and think our plans through, but we don't want to find we're taken over by going over past even...

Wednesday's Soul Card.

Posted on 11 December, 2019 at 5:05 Comments comments (0)

The figure on today's Soul Card has three sets of arms and a large amount of blackness where its torso is expected to be. It appears to be cocooned or surrounded by an orange layer that may be holding them in looking at the way four of the hands are reaching out, though their face doesn't look distressed, even if it doesn't look particularly happy either. This seems to be a picture of contradictions; of peace versus conflict, safety versus restriction and plenty versus loss. We can be in a ha...

Tuesday's Soul Card.

Posted on 10 December, 2019 at 3:55 Comments comments (0)

This Soul Card has two faces merging together with their hands facing towards us. Their faces appear to be calm and serene, showing they're happy to be doing this and are in tune with each other on this matter. Their outstretched hands make me think they're holding the rest of the world back, asking for some peace and quiet while they spend some quality time together. This can relate to the time we need to spend with our loved ones in order to reconnect with them, listening to their thoughts,...

Monday's Soul Card.

Posted on 9 December, 2019 at 9:30 Comments comments (0)

Today's Soul Card has a hazy, misty look to it, with a figure that has closed eyes and is quite blurred and lacks definition. This immediately makes me think of how we may feel if we're lacking purpose or direction in our lives; how can we look as though we know what's going on on the outside to other people if we don't feel sure of what we're doing on the inside? By having their eyes closed it doesn't help this figure to see what could be available to them, so the first thing we need to do i...

Thursday's Soul Card.

Posted on 5 December, 2019 at 4:45 Comments comments (0)

Today's Soul Card looks like a big hug, something many of us may need at the moment. With the blue outer circle and the orange/red inner this looks a bit the sun, so it also seems to me it's about keeping the warm in, a great idea at this time of year for a lot of us! The overall feeling I get from this card is we need to look after ourselves, to take care of those who need us, plus ensure we allow time for some self-care. The happier, more content and well we are the more we can be there for...

Wednesday's Soul Card.

Posted on 4 December, 2019 at 4:25 Comments comments (0)

Today's Soul Card has a figure on their back with a face coming out of their mouth. This could relate to words, thoughts or ideas they're having, or they may be feeling they're having to use other people's words instead of their own in a particular situation. Another aspect of this is when as adults we find ourselves using the same phrases that our parents used to say to us many years ago. It can surprise us that we've come out with words we thought we'd never say, or make us realise how simi...

Tuesday's Soul Card.

Posted on 3 December, 2019 at 4:10 Comments comments (0)

This week's choice of deck is Soul Cards by Deborah Koff-Chapin, an oracle deck that encourages us to divine our own meanings from the cards rather than rely on a book to tell us what to think. I tend to do this the majority of the time as I find we can gain much more insight from the cards if we tap into our own intuition rather than just going by what an accompanying book tells us the message is, however having “set meanings” to fall back on can be a useful starting point if we ...

The Emperor.

Posted on 28 November, 2019 at 5:10 Comments comments (0)

The Emperor from the Trionfi Della Luna looks to be pompous and self-important. He obviously thinks a lot of himself and believes his way is better than other people's. He has risen to this position of power despite his arrogance and pretentiousness, and if anything those qualities have probably helped him ascend the ranks as he joins similarly minded people in the circles he now moves in. What's interesting is that he has a small dragon on a lead, like some people have a status dog, implying...

The Lovers.

Posted on 27 November, 2019 at 4:35 Comments comments (0)

The Lovers card from the Trionfi Della Luna shows a woman who's chosen a devil as her partner, with them embracing passionately. This is quite different to many depictions of The Lovers card, thought it still represents the traditional theme of choices that are made to take us down the path we desire. This reminds us that not everyone will think along the same lines as ourselves, that what seems like an ideal choice or partnership to one person could be a complete turn off to another, and how...

Temperance.

Posted on 26 November, 2019 at 4:10 Comments comments (0)

This week it's the turn of the Trionfi Della Luna Major Arcana deck by Patrick Valenza, who describes it as the Medieval styled cousin to the Deviant Moon Tarot. Today's card is Temperance, with a woman standing near a river, pouring water from one of her chalices to the other. She has a single wing, one of her feet is showing while the other is covered and the top of her dress only covers half of her, relating to the message from Temperance of doing things in moderation. This can be about t...

The Wheel of Fortune.

Posted on 21 November, 2019 at 5:35 Comments comments (0)

The Portland Tarot's Wheel of Fortune card shows the same man in two different scenarios; one when he was down on his luck and the other when he was in a more fortunate position, as he meets himself in a place he's been to during both the up and down periods of his life. This is a reminder to us that life has many unexpected events in store for us, that there will be good and bad times, but most of all we need to remember that things will be in a constant state of change, so if we can look ou...

The City.

Posted on 20 November, 2019 at 5:15 Comments comments (0)

Today's card from The Portland Tarot is The City, often called The World in traditional decks. As this deck is based on Portland, the city itself is the world in the picture, surrounded by pink blossoms showing what good things can come out of seemingly opposite situations. The garland is all in one piece, relating to completion of a project done well, so this is a good card to come out for us today, especially if we've been brought down by the darker days or grey weather recently. We can cel...
