8 of Chalices.

Posted on 9 January, 2019 at 6:10 Comments comments (0)

The 8 of Chalices from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight shows a sad looking picture with two people walking in different directions, & not looking particularly happy about doing so. The man holds his hand to his heart, implying this is difficult to do, plus the woman's hair appears to be part of the tree she's moving away from, so hampering her progress. She also holds 2 chalices, one upright & one spilt, again showing her mixed feelings about this situation. Chalices relate to emotion...

The Sun.

Posted on 8 January, 2019 at 6:15 Comments comments (0)

The Sun is smiling on us today with our card from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight. However, much as we may associate the sun with warmth, contentedness & being happy, some of the faces here aren't as happy as others, reminding us that there are times when we need to go through some tough situations before we're able to arrive at the goal we've been aiming for. Being aware of this can help us get through any difficult times & overcome the obstacles that appear unexpectedly in our way; ...

The Hanged Man.

Posted on 7 January, 2019 at 7:20 Comments comments (0)

Well, I've had 3 weeks without doing any Tarot related work or activities due to general relaxation & enjoyment of the holiday season, family visits & the eldest being back from Uni, but it's time to find some sense of normality again & start a new course for the year ahead. This year is likely to bring new & unexpected situations again for us, as most do, as well as the more slow burning changes that occur over a longer period before they take effect or are properly noticed. ...

The King of Wands.

Posted on 14 December, 2018 at 7:00 Comments comments (0)

The final card of the week for us from the Bonefire Tarot is another King, this time the King of Wands. This relates to energy & drive, fortitude & creativity. This is the sort of person who gets things done & who doesn't like sitting around waiting for things to happen. There's lots of energy here, waiting to be used & put into action. If we've been feeling our “get up & go” has got up & left, this is a push to help us back up onto our feet again. We can p...

The Emperor.

Posted on 12 December, 2018 at 5:05 Comments comments (0)

The Emperor is another strong character, this one relating to dominance, stability, rules, structure & sternness. This is the sort of person who expects to be listened to & have their instructions followed. They may come across as being cold or detached from the situation their dealing with, even though it's in their interests to try to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved. This person will often try to impose their standards on others, encouraging them to follow their rules &...

The King of Swords.

Posted on 11 December, 2018 at 6:35 Comments comments (0)

The King of Swords looks to be a solid & stable person; someone who knows what they want out of life & has worked out the methods needed to give them the best chance of obtaining this over time. They may appear to be detached or as though they're not very emotionally involved in difficult situations, but this is more of a front they present to help them stay focused & ensure they get the best results possible than being their actual personality. This is a someone who tries to prot...

I'm using The Bonefire Tarot this week & Strength is the card with a message for us today. Sorry it's bit late- they have been countless distractions & things going on, but I've managed to get here in the end. These events tie in nicely with this card I think- I could have given up & thought that things were conspiring against me & so not done the page today, but here I am! Strength isn't really about physical force or power, but rather it's more related to endurance, fortitu...

The Page of Swords.

Posted on 6 December, 2018 at 6:30 Comments comments (0)

I'm afraid I won't be able to post tomorrow, so the Page of Swords is the last card for this week. Pages relate to youth, energy & exuberance, while the suit of Swords relates to clarity of though, communication & the courage to do the right thing. Pairing these together you get an idealistic person who will try their best to make sure a project gets its best chance to see the light of day, someone who will stand up for the truth & the encouragement that even if we have to start o...

The Fool.

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

The Fool is the first card in a Tarot deck, & so relates to a new start or journey in our lives. The woman in the card has her bag packed & is waiting for a lift to take her away from her present situation. She appears to be hitch-hiking, which could bring with it some risks, so this is a reminder that we mustn't forget to bear risks or potential problems in mind, even if we're really excited & raring to get going on our new ventures. We don't want to find ourselves rushing in too...

The Lovers.

Posted on 4 December, 2018 at 6:20 Comments comments (0)

The Lovers is our card today, with the obvious message of love, happiness & romance, but also the more subtle message relating to relationships in general in our lives, choices we've made (or will need to make) & the work needed to ensure the things we want in life can stay on track. We need to make a commitment to any path we want to follow, to allow plenty of time to work on it & to spend this time in a worthwhile way & try not to waste too much of it if possible. Trusting t...

The Knight of Cups.

Posted on 3 December, 2018 at 7:00 Comments comments (0)

I'm staying with the Vanessa Tarot again this week, & today's card is the Knight of Cups. There may be a lot going on in our lives, but we shouldn't forget about our emotional side or put material gain before everything else. It's important for us to try & be happy as well as successful if possible, to develop fully in all areas of our lives & to be empathic regarding other people & their situations too. We may rush into situations without thinking, say things before realising...

The 7 of Swords.

Posted on 29 November, 2018 at 8:25 Comments comments (0)

We have the 7 of Swords from the Vanessa Tarot today, showing a thief making her getaway with a safe. She looks pleased with herself now, but how long will this triumph last? This could relate to someone doing us a disservice, or possibly we have the chance to take advantage of someone else & are considering if the risk is worth it or not. How long does the adrenaline from cheap thrills last, will karma balance the situation out in the end or does this way of thinking show a level of imma...

The 10 of Coins.

Posted on 28 November, 2018 at 6:55 Comments comments (0)

The 10 of Coins from the Vanessa Tarot reminds us to appreciate all that we have, especially when it may turn out that we have more than we realise or possibly even more than we need in a particular area. It can be easy to dwell on the negatives in life, to focus on what we don't have or look to what other people own & be jealous of them or want it for ourselves too, however most of us are likely to find at least one area in our lives where we have some abundance if we look properly. We m...

The Queen of Swords.

Posted on 27 November, 2018 at 7:05 Comments comments (0)

The Queen of Swords shows a widow at a funeral; she looks poised & sure of herself, coping with the things life has thrown at her, but that faraway look in her eyes makes you wonder if she wishes things had gone differently. The suit of Swords relates to thoughts, communication, honesty & clarity, while the Queen of the suit is a strong, confident woman who stands by what she says & does, even if it means she stands alone or has to deal with any unpleasant consequences from her ac...

The King of Cups.

Posted on 26 November, 2018 at 7:00 Comments comments (0)

I'm using the brilliant Vanessa Tarot this week. It's a nice compact size & even comes in a sturdy tin to protect the cards & make it easier to store as well as carry out & about. Today's card is the King of Cups (depicted as a woman-there are very few men in this deck), looking confident & sure of herself on her throne. She wears clothing that may be unusual for a monarch, but this shows her creative & unique side, as well as reminding us she doesn't bow to conformity. Th...

Temperance and The High Priestess.

Posted on 23 November, 2018 at 8:00 Comments comments (0)

The final wooden Tarot Discs of the week for us are Temperance (Blending ideas, harmony & inspiration, Drink this fusion in moderation) & The High Priestess (To see secrets & knowledge hidden, Use psychic powers & intuition). This makes me think of how we often know at least part of the answer already to a lot of the questions we have & issues we're pondering over, & those answers usually involve balance & moderation in some shape or form along the way. Our inner v...

Death and The Devil.

Posted on 22 November, 2018 at 4:35 Comments comments (0)

Death & The Devil are our Tarot Discs today. Death says: A clean sweep brings change & renewal, Transformation, a turning point, hear its call, and The Devil: Following instincts, desires & attraction, To powerful forces & maybe into temptation.

Death often looks quite scary but relates to changes that needn't be if we take it all in our stride wherever possible. Death's scythe can cut away the dross in our lives, leaving behind the things we don't really need any more,...

The Star and The Magician.

Posted on 21 November, 2018 at 6:00 Comments comments (0)

We have The Star again today, this time as the situation we're in, followed by The Magician as help or advice regarding this. Here's The Star's rhyme: Wish on a star for the opportunity, To gain hopes, wishes & creativity. Then we can see a continuing theme in the rhyme for The Magician: For problem solving & creativity, I use my skills & adaptability.

I think some creativity may be called for today! The Star relates to our hopes & dreams, the things we want to do most...

The Devil and The Star.

Posted on 20 November, 2018 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

The Devil relates to a situation or event today, with the Star giving us advice about how to deal with it. My “rhyme” for The Devil goes like this: Following instincts, desires & attraction, To powerful forces & maybe into temptation. This sounds as though we could be headed into something we're not quite prepared for yet, though it's not necessarily a bad thing. Instead it's likely to be something we haven't fully thought about in detail or examined what all the consequen...

The Hermit and Judgement.

Posted on 19 November, 2018 at 4:55 Comments comments (0)

I'm using my original, prototype set of wooden Tarot Discs today. These are a bit more rustic looking than the ones we sell as Chris hand cut the wood before I sanded it, whereas the ones for sale are more uniform as they're machine cut & sanded.

This week I've decided to draw one disc for a situation or event each day & one disc for what we can take from this. Today's discs are the Hermit & Judgement & my LWB bit for the Hermit is: For personal growth & increased w...
