The Empress.

Posted on 13 March, 2019 at 6:25 Comments comments (0)

The Empress from the Vanessa Tarot shows a woman relaxing in a garden full of flowers in a scene of sunshine and abundance. She looks to be happy, comfortable and content, nurturing the plants around her and encouraging their growth. This is a good example to follow in our own lives; if we can look after and tend to those who need us we'll be rewarded by seeing the growth in them and be satisfied and fulfilled by the job we've managed to do. This isn't about wearing ourselves out, slaving awa...

The 2 of Swords.

Posted on 12 March, 2019 at 6:50 Comments comments (0)

The 2 of Swords from the Vanessa Tarot shows a blindfold wearing, sword carrying tightrope walker- that's certainly a balancing act if ever I saw one! She obviously has a lot on her mind and can't afford to make a wrong move. This relates to choices, contemplating whether we're on the right path or not, or turning away from the things we know in order to try something that's new to us. This isn't something we should take lightly though; it demands our concentration, clear thought and dedicati...

The Devil.

Posted on 11 March, 2019 at 5:55 Comments comments (0)

Today's card from the Vanessa Tarot for us is the Devil, showing a man chained to the bed by his lover. The question to consider here is whether he is in this position due to his own choice and actions or if he is here against his will? There are various interpretations for this card; it can relate to lust, passion and following our desires, or there's a darker side relating to oppression, repression and bondage (but not in a good way!! :) ). How does the Devil find us today? It could be ther...

7 of Wands.

Posted on 6 March, 2019 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

The 7 of Wands from the Vanessa Tarot shows a warrior defending herself against an unseen army. She appears to be under siege, or at the very least being backed into a corner and having to stand up for herself if she wants to gain any ground. She's matching like with like; doing what needs to be done in order to hold the others off and keep them at a safe distance. In some situations diplomacy is called for, and other times brute force is the best option to get decisive results. We may feel w...

The High Priestess.

Posted on 5 March, 2019 at 7:40 Comments comments (0)

I'm using the Vanessa Tarot for the next couple of weeks, and today's card with a message for us is the High Priestess. This High Priestess looks confident and approachable sitting on her throne. She's holding a mirror in her hand and has an owl by her side; the mirror represents being able to see inside ourselves, our inner most truths and being aware of our subconsciousness, and her companion relates to the symbol of owls being wise. This reminds us to listen to our intuition, to take notic...

The Chariot.

Posted on 1 March, 2019 at 3:20 Comments comments (0)

The Chariot is the final card of the week with a message for us from the Happy Tarot. This shows a scene of fast movement as the person in the chariot is off on their journey and isn't wasting any time in getting started or ploughing on with their plans. This is a great card too end the week with if we're starting on a new project or aiming for success in a particular area of our lives. This is encouragement for us to keep on track, not to give up and to take charge of our lives and the direc...

Queen of Wands.

Posted on 28 February, 2019 at 4:10 Comments comments (0)

The Queen of Wands from the Happy Tarot looks to be happy and content on her throne with a cat sleeping at her feet. She has evidence of her creativity surrounding her, and she encourages us to have a look at these and see if we're inspired to produce something similar ourselves. She looks kind and friendly, welcoming us into her domain and making us feel at ease in her presence. We could be flagging in our day to day lives, feeling uninspired regarding how to make the most of the situations ...

7 of Cups.

Posted on 27 February, 2019 at 4:05 Comments comments (0)

The 7 of Cups from the Happy Tarot shows us lots of choices today. The girl in the card has several options to choose from, and all of them appear to be interesting and potentially good for her. The hard part is choosing which one to pick! We can find there are times in life where our options seem to be barren and then other times when we have plenty to choose from, which can cause us anguish of a different type. It's good to have all these options though, especially if it's possible they'll ...

The Wheel of Fortune.

Posted on 25 February, 2019 at 3:00 Comments comments (0)

The Wheel of Fortune starts our week from the Happy Tarot, reminding us that the wheel of life is always turning & we have new opportunities on a daily basis. There are good & bad times we need to negotiate, but as things are in constant motion we know we can try & ride out the bad times as they shouldn't last forever. There are cycles in our lives; chapters end and new ones begin. What we do with these situations is what's important, especially if we want to make the most out of ...

The Moon.

Posted on 22 February, 2019 at 5:15 Comments comments (0)

The Moon from the Happy Tarot reminds us that everything isn't always as it seems. In the moonlight things can look quite different to the same place seen during the day, adding another dimension to the situation we may not have thought about previously. We can draw on our imagination, listen to our intuition and take notice of any dreams we may have had to help us if we we have decisions to make or problems to solve. If being logical is our usual approach, this could indicate it's time to tr...

7 of Wands.

Posted on 21 February, 2019 at 4:50 Comments comments (0)

The girl in the 7 of Wands from the Happy Tarot doesn't look too happy at the moment, but she does look determined to see off the wands that are challenging her. It can be difficult if others don't understand our point of view or are trying to make us back down on an issue that is important to us, but this card shows that we have the high ground & that much as it may be hard work, if we're determined to see it through, if we stay calm and are able to deal with these challenges one at a ti...

The Hermit.

Posted on 20 February, 2019 at 6:15 Comments comments (0)

The Hermit from the Happy Tarot stands on top of a hill in the dark, all by himself with just his staff & lamp to help him see where he's walking. This tells us that sometimes we need a bit of distance & perspective in order to be able to see things that need our attention more clearly. This can help us to listen to & hear our own thoughts better, to discover more about the situation we're in & to not be too influenced by anyone else who may have vested interests in it one way...

5 of Cups.

Posted on 19 February, 2019 at 6:00 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of Cups from the Happy Tarot shows a sad scene today, a boy crying because 3 of his cups have overturned & the contents spilt. However, there are still 2 cups that are upright, even if he isn't paying them any attention at the moment. This card comes out when we're lamenting the loss of something from our lives, when we feel things aren't going the way we had hoped or planned they would, or because we having a rough time in some area of our lives. Much as the emphasis appears to be ...

The Hierophant.

Posted on 18 February, 2019 at 5:40 Comments comments (0)

I thought the colourful Happy Tarot would be a good deck to use for the next fortnight, helping to cheer us up when the weather is dull & reminding us of the good things in life wherever possible, though this deck still manages to get the message across despite its light-hearted appearance at first glance. Today's card is the Hierophant, & shows him in attendance with two seekers. This relates to following rules, traditions & dogma, which can be useful in certain situations, but c...

The Magician.

Posted on 14 February, 2019 at 5:05 Comments comments (0)

The Magician is a powerful card for us from the Dark Fairytale Tarot today, reminding us of the skills & knowledge we already have & encouraging us to put these into practice. It can be hard to believe in ourselves, to see what we may be able to accomplish or achieve, but this is what we need to do if we want to progress in the areas of life that are important to us. Building up our confidence, having faith in the words of other people & preparing to master our abilities & st...

7 of Pentacles.

Posted on 13 February, 2019 at 5:40 Comments comments (0)

The 7 of Pentacles from the Dark Fairytale Tarot shows a woman in a field of blooming flowers, taking some time out from her work & appreciating what she's managed to accomplish to date. Pentacles often relate to our working lives; the things we're working towards & want to make materialise in some way. However, if it's all work & no play we could find we're burning out or aren't making the progress we were expecting, so having a rest can help us to recharge our batteries & gi...

The World.

Posted on 11 February, 2019 at 7:40 Comments comments (0)

The World from the Dark Fairytale Tarot relates to completion; the end of a chapter or journey in our lives. Something has come full circle, taught us the lesson we needed to know or fulfilled its purpose in our lives. This isn't a time for being sad about what we're leaving behind- instead it's more about being be proud of our achievements, being pleased with what we've accomplished & a time to consider what we want to tackle next on our journey through life. Where do we go from here? Th...

2 of Swords.

Posted on 7 February, 2019 at 6:55 Comments comments (1)

The 2 of Swords from the Dark Fairytale Tarot is a static card again for us today, reminding us we don't have to be rushing around all the time or always be doing something active. Our minds need time to think about our circumstances & any choices we need to be concentrating on before we make them if we want to make good long term decisions. Do we go forwards, backwards, stay still or try something completely different? The decisions we have to make may seem to be impossible sometimes, bu...

4 of Swords.

Posted on 6 February, 2019 at 5:45 Comments comments (0)

The 4 of Swords from the Dark Fairytale Tarot shows a quieter scene today. It's time to step back from the chaos of the world around us, to contemplate matters & think about our situation & see if we need to make any changes to it. If we're always busy & on the go we'll never have very much time to properly work out solutions to any problems we have or be able to think about how to make a success of the plans we have in mind. It can be useful to have some quiet time to enable us t...

5 of Wands.

Posted on 5 February, 2019 at 5:40 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of Wands from the Dark Fairytale Tarot shows a scene of people fighting, though the weapons used are unlikely to be as devastating as swords or others could be, so hopefully most of those involved will live to see another day. There is light in the darkness, with orbs glowing at the end of the wands, so maybe someone can “see the light” & stop things before it all gets out of hand. As much as anything else, this doesn't appear to be the most organised way of approaching ...
