The 8 of Cups.

Posted on 30 August, 2019 at 5:50 Comments comments (0)

The 8 of Cups is the final card of the week for us from the Dark Mansion Tarot, showing a woman walking away from several chalices on the beach and a boat sailing away in the background. On a basic level we could say we're leaving the working week behind us, ready to do something different (and maybe that we'll enjoy more) over the weekend. On a deeper level this card relates to walking away from something that meant a lot, but no longer works for us; a situation that has run its course or th...

The 6 of Cups.

Posted on 29 August, 2019 at 5:50 Comments comments (0)

Today's card from the Dark Mansion Tarot is the 6 of cups, showing a woman reminiscing as she looks at photos that bring back happy memories for her. Many of us love doing similar things, often wishing we could go back to a particular period in time that we remember as being perfect. We're reminded of our mortality, how fast our children grow up and the amount our circumstances may have changed (or stayed static) over time. Many emotions can be brought up; some happy, some sad, some spurring ...

The 8 of Wands.

Posted on 28 August, 2019 at 4:35 Comments comments (0)

The 8 of Wands from the Dark Mansion Tarot shows a Postmistress flying around with a satchel full of letters, taking them to their destinations as fast as possible. This brisk paced situation will have come about after a slower period when the letters would have been sorted and addresses checked. After a time of slow and painstaking work, the reward is a burst of activity as the desired results are finally achieved. This is likely to be the case for many of us with certain activities and proj...

After a lovely Bank Holiday weekend in the UK, with gorgeous weather and a few days off for many of us from our usual mundane responsibilities, some people may need the Strength card from the Dark Mansion Tarot to help us see through the rest of the week. We had a couple of days away in our caravan; we had time to relax, recharge our batteries and have fun with the children and dogs, but now it's back to work, housework and general chores that need our attention. I certainly need to draw on s...

The King of Cups.

Posted on 22 August, 2019 at 6:35 Comments comments (0)

The King of Cups from the Dark Mansion Tarot shows a wise man who's experienced many aspects of life in his time, both good and bad. This means he has a lot of experience to draw on when he hands out advice, and is able empathise when the people he knows are going through tough emotional situations. This can relate to us needing to find a mentor or someone to help us through similar sorts of issues, or we could be the ones who reach out to those who need support. People's emotions are complex...

The High Priestess.

Posted on 21 August, 2019 at 3:30 Comments comments (0)

The High Priestess from the Dark Mansion Tarot looks out of the card directly at us. When someone focuses on us in this way they're seeing us as we really are; looking beneath the surface and seeing our underlying thoughts and desires. We may go to the High Priestess for answers, but she reminds us we already know the solution to our problems, even though we may not like to admit it. Sometimes we may be struggling to understand what to do next in life, and there is no easy response, but if we...

The 4 of Wands.

Posted on 20 August, 2019 at 4:10 Comments comments (0)

The 4 of Wands from the Dark Mansion Tarot shows a happy scene with a couple spending time together, just the two of them. Time and effort has been invested into this situation as the area is decorated and welcoming, so this meeting is obviously not just a chance occurrence. The 4 of Wands comes up when we need to reminded of the things and people that are important to us, to show us we've done well and accomplished many of the goals we set out to achieve, and much as our work isn't yet done,...

The 9 of Swords.

Posted on 19 August, 2019 at 3:10 Comments comments (0)

I couldn't resist going back to my newest deck, the lovely Dark Mansion Tarot, to use again this week. Today's card is the 9 of Swords, with a dark looking scene of woe and distress. This relates to the feeling we get in the middle of the night when we have all our worries running through our minds and can't see a way to deal with them; the nightmare of being unable to help ourselves and not being able to see any way we can escape from our problems as they build up and become bigger than we e...

The Witch at the End of the World.

Posted on 15 August, 2019 at 5:40 Comments comments (0)

The Witch at the end of the World from the Oracle of Shadows and Light has the keywords- An important end, a new beginning. There's a storm brewing by the looks of things in this picture, but the witch in the card knows that if she can stay calm and see things through things will change, and hopefully improve, over time. It's full moon tonight, so again this ties in with trying to bring changes for the better into our lives. Sometimes we need to go through the hard times, “weather the s...

The Fairy of the Green World.

Posted on 14 August, 2019 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

The Fairy of the Green World, with the keywords- The natural world needs you, is a timely card for us from the Oracle of Shadows and Light today. Whether people believe climate change is man-made/driven or not, it's plain to see that there are major shifts occurring in the natural world and that one way or another we will need to make changes in our day to day life, sooner rather than later if possible. This message helps us focus on what actions we can take, big and small. Being more careful...

Candy Cane Angel.

Posted on 13 August, 2019 at 4:45 Comments comments (0)

Today's card from the Oracle of Shadows and Light is the Candy Cane Angel, with the keywords- It's time for a treat! After a period of hard work, being careful with our finances or generally making sure other people in our lives have what they want and need rather than worrying about our own desires, this is reminding us we're allowed to have some fun too. It doesn't mean we should blow our savings or be reckless, but it can help us to have some fun and treat ourselves when we deserve it. If ...

Poe, with the keywords- Time for change, to learn something new, advanced technology, is a great card from the Oracle of Shadows and Light to start our week. This is a reminder to us that things can't stay the same forever, even if we'd like them to. If we're able to embrace change rather than fighting or resisting it we should be able to make the transition much more easily and with less pain. In the long run. Easier said than done, but good to bear in mind as we approach the tasks we may no...

Amara the Menehune.

Posted on 8 August, 2019 at 5:05 Comments comments (0)

Amara the Menehune is today's card from the Oracle of Shadows and Light, and it comes with the Keywords: Aloha healing. For many of us it's summer at the moment, and some of us may be lucky enough to have holidays planned to go on. Even if we stay at home we can encourage this holiday feeling into our lives though. Often it's about our attitude, how we perceive things to be in our lives that makes the difference between drudgery or feeling excited, energised and refreshed. This card helps us ...

Dress of Alchemy.

The Dress of Alchemy, with the keywords- Release your power! is our card from the Oracle of Shadows and Light today. The girl in the card looks confident, powerful and sure of herself and her abilities. There are eyes in her wings, showing how much she can see and how the truth will come out regarding who she is and what she's capable of doing. There's no holding her back now as she's realised what she's capable of and how much she can accomplish. These are all good attributes for us to follo...

Pink Lotus Fairy.

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

I'm using another of Jasmine Beckett—Griffith's decks this week, this time it's the turn of the Oracle of Shadows and Light. Today's card is the Pink Lotus Fairy, with the keywords: A time for spirit. The fairy in this picture is well and truly concentrating on her meditation; she wants to be immersed in this in order to get the most out of it. In the past she may have let her practices slip and not been as disciplined as she'd planned to be, but now she's determined to get back on trac...

Artemis of the Forest.

Posted on 2 August, 2019 at 5:55 Comments comments (0)

Artemis of the Forest is the final card of the week for us from the Oracle of the Shapeshifters. The girl in the picture is in a forest with nothing but animals around her, yet she looks confident and as though this won't be a problem to her, with her steady stare and comfortable pose. The keywords on this card are: Now you are independent and free. This is good advice for us as it's so easy to feel trapped or as though we have no choice regarding what we do with our lives. Some things may be...

Orca Magick.

Posted on 1 August, 2019 at 4:55 Comments comments (0)

Orca Magick is our card today from the lovely Oracle of the Shapeshifters. We are said to have evolved from the sea-creatures, whales are known to be highly intelligent, plus many people find whale-song soothing, so it's not surprising that there are magical links between us and the water on our planet. Water is the element often related to emotions and intuition in divination, so this calls on us to listen to our inner voice, to see the sign around us and try to work out what the messages ar...

The golden Phoenix.

Posted on 31 July, 2019 at 4:05 Comments comments (0)

I've chosen the Oracle of the Shapeshifters to use this week, a deck I haven't used for a while, though I love the artwork of its creator, Jasmine Becket-Griffith. Today's card is The Golden Phoenix, showing a goth looking girl with a fiery phoenix, the legendary bird that obtains a new life by rising from the ashes of its predecessor, regenerating or being born again out of the fire. Symbolically it's related to renewal, resurrection, transformation and cycles of time. This ties in with the ...

The 10 of Swords.

Posted on 26 July, 2019 at 5:25 Comments comments (0)

We end our time with the Gummy Bear Tarot with the depressing looking 10 of Swords. Not really the sort of thing we want to see at any time, though as this is the end of the week with the weekend looming for many of us, it shows that the hard times are coming to an end and we won't have to endure any pain we've been suffering for much longer. Much as the sky is black (maybe like our mood if we've been taken advantage of or let down), below the clouds it's much brighter with the promise of a n...

The 3 of Pentacles.

Posted on 25 July, 2019 at 4:15 Comments comments (0)

The 3 of Pentacles from the Gummy Bear Tarot is a change of suit today (we've been having a lot of Cups recently dealing with emotions and intuition), meaning a change in direction or the in which we take action to get the most from our situations. Pentacles relate to the earth, material and financial matters, and this card shows a bear hard at work with two other bears watching what he's doing. The working bear clearly knows his stuff and what he needs to do next to get the job done properly...
