Amarath Longing.

Posted on 21 June, 2019 at 4:25 Comments comments (0)

The final card from the Victoria Frances Oracle for this outing is Amarath Longing, with the woman in the picture holding a rose in her mouth, allowing the thorns to pierce her lip. Has she been forced to do this or has she inflicted it on herself, like a martyr? However she got to this position, she's likely to be regretting her actions now, but she looks unsure about what to do next. There's a path going up the hill behind her if she turns around, or she may decide to stay where she is and...

Through the Woods.

Posted on 19 June, 2019 at 6:10 Comments comments (0)

Today's card from the Victoria Frances Oracle is Through the Woods, showing a bride running away from her wedding. This is an extremely difficult thing to do, so she must have had good grounds for her actions, showing that if there is something in our lives that doesn't feel right to us we have the strength to change direction and choose a different path instead if we want. It's easy to do what's expected, to follow the example of our friends or family or travel the path we're used to, but it...

Tears for Innocence.

Posted on 18 June, 2019 at 6:00 Comments comments (0)

Tears for Innocence is our card from the Victoria Frances Oracle today. It shows a girl with her childhood toys, but these are broken, so she's upset by what's happened. Many of us will have traumas, upset and pain from the past that still affects us or that creeps up on us unawares at times. It's frustrating that we can't change what happened, and in many cases we'll work out what we could have done instead to stop the situation becoming as bad as it did, but no amount of analysing the past ...

The Mirror of Truth.

Posted on 17 June, 2019 at 5:15 Comments comments (0)

The Mirror of Truth from the Victoria Frances Oracle is the card with a message for us today. The woman in the picture is staring our at us with a focused and determined look; it seems that it would take a lot to distract her from her plans or steer her off course. When we start a new project or job we're happy to spend most of our time perfecting our skills, learning the ropes and getting to know what's expected of us, but over time we can fall into a routine or get into a rut where we go th...

Falling from Grace.

Posted on 14 June, 2019 at 4:10 Comments comments (0)

The final card of the week for us from the Victoria Frances Oracle is Falling from Grace, showing a sad looking woman with an angel in the dark behind her. If she turned around she would see its presence and may be able to find some solace in knowing that she doesn't have to deal with her troubles all by herself. She looks to be alone, but in reality she isn't, which is a feeling many of us have on a regular basis. This relates to cycles in life; we'll be able to make the transition from endi...

The Faceless Company.

Posted on 13 June, 2019 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

The Faceless Company is today's card from the Victoria Frances Oracle, showing a vampire ready for a masquerade party. The main emphasis in this picture is the mask she's wearing, like many of us do in our day to day lives without even realising. We wear different masks for different situations, which can be necessary, especially if we need to act in a professional manner at work or when dealing with officialdom, but do we then get to the point where we're not actually sure who the “rea...

Oblivion Denied.

Posted on 12 June, 2019 at 4:55 Comments comments (0)

Today's card from the Victoria Frances Oracle is Oblivion Denied, showing a woman holding onto a tree while she's still in the water around it. She knows that this action is needed to ensure her safety, even if she's not sure about what she should do next. She could stay where she is, though she's likely to deteriorate over time as the cold and damp creep into her more, she could try swimming or moving down the bank with the help of other trees and shrubs, or she could make an effort to remov...

Journey At Dusk.

Posted on 11 June, 2019 at 4:55 Comments comments (0)

For the next couple of weeks I've chosen the lovely Victoria Frances Oracle deck to use, and today's card is Journey At Dusk. The woman in the card is wandering around the forest, finding her way blocked many times by the trunks that have fallen across the path. She looks demoralised as she's been held back one time to many now and really wants to find a way through all of this so she can get back on the right path. There is no ultimate right or wrong path for us really though, it's more abou...

The Empress.

Posted on 6 June, 2019 at 4:25 Comments comments (0)

The Empress from The Vanessa Tarot shows a woman relaxing in her garden, an abundance of flowers and plant life around her. They grow so well because of the care and attention she lavishes on them, like a mother looks after her children. The Empress relates to nurturing, fertility, abundance and caring about people in our lives. It can herald a pregnancy or birth, a new job or our role where we look after others, even if we're not a parent. Selfless love and care is often involved in this; a ...

The 3 of Cups.

Posted on 5 June, 2019 at 4:00 Comments comments (0)

The 3 of Cups is today's card from The Vanessa Tarot and shows three woman ready for a night out together. They're well and truly ready to socialise and party, having got dressed up in their finest and being excited about seeing each other again. There may be people in our lives we've lost touch with, don't see as often as we'd like or even just haven't spoken to for a few days. This encourages us to get in touch, to arrange to meet them and to enjoy getting ready to talk about old times, pla...

The 5 of Cups.

Posted on 4 June, 2019 at 3:30 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of Cups from the Vanessa Tarot shows a girl looking indignant over the 3 cups that have been knocked upside down and spilled their contents, with a second girl trying to make her aware of the 2 other cups that are still upright and full. Depending on how you look at this situation it's either a terrible tragedy or it's a situation where not all has been lost and something can still be salvaged from it. There is hope that things can improve and aren't at their worst yet if it's possible ...

The Emperor.

Posted on 3 June, 2019 at 5:10 Comments comments (0)

The Emperor from the Vanessa Tarot shows a strong leader, setting out her rules and regulations to all her followers. She is firm and sure in her convictions, making it known that she won't accept anyone messing her about and that she expects compliance with her plans at all times. Sometimes we want to do things our own way, to take a laissez-faire approach and just see what happens depending on the actions we've taken, effectively making it up as we go alone. However, there are other occasio...

The Knight of Swords.

Posted on 31 May, 2019 at 5:25 Comments comments (0)

The Knight of Swords is the last card from the Vanessa Tarot for us this week (but I'll be posting again with it next week, yay :) ). Today's card shows a woman on her motorbike, ready to deal with whatever comes her way. Knights relate to the transition from youth to adulthood, the coming of age and the thrills and spills of adventure. The message for us today is to build up our confidence, believe in ourselves and what we're capable of doing, and to have a steadfast attitude regarding our g...

The Fool.

Posted on 30 May, 2019 at 6:10 Comments comments (0)

The Fool is today's card from The Vanessa Tarot, showing a woman with her bag packed, ready to go off on a journey with her dog as a companion. She reminds me a bit of Shania Twain in her video for That Don't Impress Me Much, but I digress :D :P :D When we start on a new journey or begin again in life in some way (a new job, relationship, house, or change of mindset) it can be hard to know what direction to go in for the best, how to manage the potential risks involved that are bound to come ...

The 7 of Wands.

Posted on 29 May, 2019 at 6:50 Comments comments (0)

The 7 of Wands from the Vanessa Tarot shows a warrior woman standing her ground against several others who are trying to make her give way or back down regarding an issue. She looks to be fiercely determined to see this through and doesn't seem likely to be giving up her stance any time soon. This relates to those times when we feel the world is against us, other people just can't see our point of view or when we know it's worth sticking to our guns to get the best long term result regarding ...

The Sun.

Posted on 28 May, 2019 at 6:25 Comments comments (0)

I'm using the Vanessa Tarot for a couple of weeks- I love the size of this deck as it's quite compact and fits in your hands easily to shuffle (even though I really like large decks too, actually I like all decks really :D :P :D ), plus I like that it comes in a tin so it's easy to store and hopefully won't get damaged. Today's card is The Sun and shows a girl and her horse enjoying a lovely sunny day together, without a care in the world. The sunflower in the bottom right corner emphasis thi...

The Shadow Side.

Posted on 23 May, 2019 at 4:05 Comments comments (0)

I don't think I'll have time to post a card tomorrow I'm afraid, so today's one will be the last from the Witches Tarot for a while (I'll be using a different deck next week). The Shadow side (usually called the Devil) is our card and shows a shadowy figure in the background that the girl and boy nearer us seem afraid of. They're not running away however, so either they've chosen to be there and things are more intense than they expected, or they're being held there against their will. Many ...

Karma (often known as Judgement) is our card today from the Witches Tarot. It looks as though there is an eclipse in this scene and the people in the picture are doing spell-work to make the most of this auspicious occasion. This is one of the cards in the Tarot that denotes change. In this case it's not destructive (like the Tower can be); instead it's under our control, and though we may not wish this change to occur, we may regret it if we resist it. This relates to a union or reconciliati...

The 5 of Swords.

Posted on 21 May, 2019 at 4:25 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of swords from the Witches Tarot shows 5 Swords all pointing at a moth in the sky, seemingly directed there by the fairies flying around them. People often think of faeries as being kind, sweet or cute, but these certainly aren't acting in that way. In many studies of the fae the conclusions often are that they are cunning, tricksy and deceitful, and not as good natured as many fairy-tales would have us believe. The moth in the card is holding its ground (or piece of sky), for now at le...

The 5 of Cups.

Posted on 20 May, 2019 at 4:30 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of Cups is our card from the Witches Tarot today, and it shows a forlorn looking mermaid sitting on a rock looking at the cups around her, some of which have been knocked over and spilt. She looks how I've felt for a few days; as though she can't see how things can improve and that life isn't going quite the way she hoped and planned it would. It's likely she has much more going for her than she realises, and though she's probably aware of this when she thinks logically, at the moment s...
