Thumberlina.

Posted on 15 August, 2018 at 10:35 Comments comments (0)

Better late than never, today's card for us is Thumberlina, with the Keyword Expectations. This fairytale tells the story of a magically made being trying to find her place in the world. She's kidnapped, in tricky situations & doesn't know where she's heading, but she manages to learn useful skills along the way & make her mark on the world, eventually finding a group which she feels at home with. The message this gives us is that we can exceed expectations, overcome problems & le...

The Little Mermaid.

Posted on 14 August, 2018 at 6:50 Comments comments (0)

The Little Mermaid, with the Keyword Sacrifice, is today's card from the Faerytale Oracle. In the fairytale of the same name, the mermaid was offered the chance to have legs so she could walk on land, but the cost would be great pain every time she took a step. The message from this card is for us to think about any sacrifices we're making & whether our payment (sacrifice) is worth the end result or not. Are we hiding our true selves away from others in order to fit in, are we in love wit...

Red Riding Hood.

Posted on 8 August, 2018 at 7:00 Comments comments (1)

Red Riding Hood from The Faerytale Oracle deck, with the Keywords Rites of Passage, has a message for us about the pitfalls life can throw at us that we need to look out for. The wolf tries to disguise itself as Red Riding Hood's grandma & trick her, so this relates to us being able to see through any deceptions in our lives, to remain focused & aware of the things happening around us, plus the need to work out what's the best path to take ourselves. We don't want to be hard & una...

The Sea Maiden.

Posted on 7 August, 2018 at 5:35 Comments comments (0)

Today's card is The Sea Maiden, with the Keyword Promises, from The Faerytale Oracle by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. This reminds us that when we make a promise we should take it seriously. We shouldn't make them if we haven't really thought through the possible consequences of our words & potential actions. It's better to make fewer promises but always see them through than to make them rashly & then get known for never being true to our word, especially with those close to us such as ou...

The 8 of Coins.

Posted on 3 August, 2018 at 9:25 Comments comments (0)

The final card of the week is the 8 of Coins. The picture shows an artist at work, concentrating on her endeavours & trying not to be distracted by anything going on around her. This card relates to working hard, single mindedness & being dedicated & committed to a project in our lives. It can be easy to give up when the going gets tough, to procrastinate instead of getting the job done, or worry about whether we're up to standard. Instead of doing any of those things, if we can b...

The 3 of Cups.

Posted on 2 August, 2018 at 5:00 Comments comments (0)

The 3 of Cups is a lovely positive card for us today. The image shows 3 women appearing to flow into each other, indicating harmony, friendship & fun. It is a reminder that we have the help & support of those who care for us to help us work towards the things we want to achieve in life. Calling on our support network shows strength rather than weakness as we would want to help others if they were in need, plus we can have lots of fun with them along the way. This also shows the interc...

The King of Coins.

Posted on 1 August, 2018 at 5:30 Comments comments (0)

The King of Coins is a provider, a care giver & loves the good things in life. He is surrounded by the things he has worked for & managed to procure for his family to help make them happy, & so if we can try to channel this card today we can work towards making aspects of this lifestyle become our own. We can't expect to achieve everything all in one go as this is something that needs to be worked on over time. It inspires us to keep going when it seems things aren't going the way...

The 5 of Wands.

Posted on 31 July, 2018 at 6:45 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of Wands shows a mixture of competition & inefficiency today. This is the card that relates to people pulling in different directions rather than working as a team & getting the job done faster & with less effort. Competition is sometimes needed, but knowing when to work alone & when to enlist the help of others is also important to get the results we're after in life. There's lots of fiery energy again in this card, indicating we have plenty of drive to get the job done...

The 7 of Wands.

Posted on 30 July, 2018 at 8:30 Comments comments (0)

I'm using my original self-published Bonefire Tarot by Gabi Angus-West this week, & for today I've drawn the 7 of Wands. The image on the card shows a person appearing to struggle or be fighting off fiery pine cones that are trying to overcome them. Hopefully we won't have this exact scenario to deal with ourselves, but we may have experiences that feel quite similar, resulting in us feeling as though we're outnumbered or are having to defend our beliefs or actions. If we feel something i...

The Emperor.

Posted on 27 July, 2018 at 2:20 Comments comments (0)

The Emperor is the final card of the week from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight. I like how this Emperor card shows the same person in two different ways; it always makes me think of the phrase “being all things to all people.” It appears that today may be one of those days, the sort when we have to be a carer, a manager, a nurse, a cleaner, a supervisor, a teacher or a multi-tasker. Think of a job or a situation where you'll need to fit in or perform a particular role or task &...

The Sun.

Posted on 26 July, 2018 at 4:20 Comments comments (0)

The Sun is so appropriate today with the lovely weather most of us have been experiencing lately. However, just because it's sunny weather, or sunny in our lives, it doesn't mean all our problems have disappeared. The hot weather, though much wanted by many, brings its own set of issues with it, notably the wild fires we've seen on the news, people suffering from heat stroke, plus a depletion of our reserves of water. In our own lives, even the best news can be tinged with sadness. Our eldest...

The 5 of Pentacles.

Posted on 25 July, 2018 at 4:40 Comments comments (0)

I love this 5 of Pentacles card from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight. In other decks this card often shows cold, destitute, sometimes injured people walking in the snow, clearly getting across the feeling of loss & financial insecurity. This card, however, manages to portray the idea of not having much but in a way that reminds us that we can cope with our situation & make the most of it if we put our minds to it. This reminds me of the “make do & mend” mentality rathe...

The 9 of Wands.

Posted on 24 July, 2018 at 5:35 Comments comments (0)

The 9 of Wands reminds us to stand our ground today, particularly if we're in a situation that we know is right for us, even if others are struggling to understand us or our point of view. It isn't easy being different, doing our own thing or standing alone when everyone else is doing things differently, but if it suits us & we think it's worth it, then this could be something that is worth digging our heels in over. We can be successful in our endeavours, make our dreams come true & ...

The Knave of Swords.

Posted on 23 July, 2018 at 5:05 Comments comments (0)

The Knave of Swords from the wonderful Tarot of the Sweet Twilight starts our week today. The Knave looks nervous & not really sure if he want to take the next step, but he has the support of his friend, the girl encouraging him & reassuring him he's on the right track. Even the small mouse in the bottom right of the picture appears to be egging him on & wanting him to do well. The message for us is that even if we're not sure how to do the things we need to get done, or are wonde...

Be Gentle With Yourself.

Posted on 20 July, 2018 at 2:35 Comments comments (0)

Be Gentle With Yourself is our final card of the week from the beautiful Nature's Whispers Oracle Deck. After a week of positive message & affirmations from this deck, today's card reminds us to be kind & gentle with ourselves, not to worry if we haven't finished everything we hoped to when we started the week & to try to see our achievements rather than our failures. The world around us can be harsh at times & it can often seem that there are plenty of people ready to pull us...

Empowerment.

Posted on 19 July, 2018 at 6:10 Comments comments (0)

Empowerment is our card today, with another positive & encouraging message for us to try & incorporate into our everyday lives. This reminds us that there are no end to the possibilities & opportunities that are open to us if we want to try & make them our own. If we watch other people become successful or wonder why some people get all the luck but we appear to have none, it could be worth looking at ourselves & our lives to see if there are areas where we could be more p...

Contemplation.

Posted on 18 July, 2018 at 5:55 Comments comments (0)

Contemplation is our card with a message today, reminding us we don't have to be busy doing things all the while & that it's ok to have some time to ourselves to sit, think & daydream if we want to. Learning to enjoy our own company is a skill that's worth learning, especially as it can help stave off boredom & allow ourselves to think about & discover ideas or possibilities we may not have considered otherwise. Some people prefer to sit quietly, others to do a task that they ...

Be True to your Heart.

Posted on 17 July, 2018 at 10:45 Comments comments (0)

Today's card is Be True to Your Heart- this reminds us to trust our intuition, to listen to our guts feelings & do what feels best. We want harmony & balance in our lives as much as possible, for things to go smoothly & to have joy & happiness. We can concentrate on the things that are going wrong in our lives or instead we can acknowledge them, but give more of our attention to the things that are going well or that we want to attract towards us so we can experience more of t...

Celebrating Differences.

Posted on 16 July, 2018 at 6:25 Comments comments (0)

I'm using my brand new deck this week; Nature's Whispers by Angela Hartfield & Josephine Wall. Today's card is named Celebrating Differences. This is something that we may easily forget as we're expected to fulfil certain roles, act in a particular way & follow set rules day to day. There are times when we need to be uniform & pull together rather than being able to concentrate on our contrasting aspects, but we shouldn't dismiss these completely. If we were all the same there wou...

Friday's Buffy Quote.

Posted on 13 July, 2018 at 4:50 Comments comments (0)

It's the last day of the week, & our Buffy Quote is: I understand this sort of thing requires ice-cream of some kind.

Never a truer word spoken :D We'll be having pizza tonight (our Friday night tradition), many people will see friends, go to the pub or do something that's a little bit of a treat. Sometimes this is because we feel we deserve it at the end of a long or hard-working week, or we could be trying to get over a difficult situation & need something to cheer us up. How...
