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...

The 3 of Swords.

Posted on 16 November, 2018 at 6:00 Comments comments (0)

The 3 of Swords is the last message of the week for us from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight. It looks quite painful & upsetting, not really the sort of thing we want to be going into the weekend with. However, looking at it again you can see that the girl in the card appears to be causing most of the pain herself; she's the one holding the knife & about to press it into herself, & it makes you wonder what else she may have been instrumental in. How much of the pain, upset or drama...

The Fool.

Posted on 15 November, 2018 at 4:40 Comments comments (0)

The Fool, the first card in a Tarot deck, is our card today. As it's the first card this relates to new beginnings, the start of a journey or taking that first step into the unknown. It can be scary, we may not feel ready or fully prepared, but it's something we're about to do. The Fool in this card appears to have strings like a puppet; does this mean he's being controlled by someone else, or is it that he's had enough of towing the line & is about to break free & do his own thing? H...

10 of Pentacles.

Posted on 13 November, 2018 at 7:05 Comments comments (0)

The 10 of Pentacles from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight, showing a woman looking proud & happy with her home & what she's managed to achieve there. It looks quite rustic, without too many mod cons, but it's homely & comfortable, just right for her. This is quite timely as there's a programme on the tv with all the “smart” gadgets people have in their homes. It made me think about how many of these were unnecessary in my eyes (such as a coffee maker you can switch on f...

King of Wands.

Posted on 12 November, 2018 at 5:35 Comments comments (0)

I love the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight so much I've decided to use it again this week, & today's card is the King of Wands. This is a lovely card, with dancing & hearts, it's clear that this is someone who is loved & appreciated. The King of Wands is a charismatic, hard-working, approachable person, someone who will go out of their way to make sure the people in their life have whatever they need if it's within their capabilities to provide them with it, & so they are justifia...

The Stars.

Posted on 9 November, 2018 at 5:50 Comments comments (0)

The final card of the week for us today is The Stars (sorry I wasn't able to post yesterday). This takes us into the weekend with hope in our hearts as we work on making our dreams & wishes come true. If we don't have hopes or aspirations we don't really have much to work towards or look forward to, but if we have ideas we want to see fulfilled it can help give us a sense of purpose & help to keep us motivated, despite other issues going on around us in our lives. Just having the drea...

5 of Pentacles.

Posted on 7 November, 2018 at 7:55 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of Pentacles often shows a picture of hardship, lack or money & destitution, but in the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight it just never seems to feel as bad as in some other decks. It reminds me of our day to day life; there are always things we need but don't have, bills (often unexpected ones such as for the car) that are a massive drain on our finances & generally lots of juggling things to make sure we get by in the best way we can. However, we also try to follow the “make-d...

9 of Swords.

Posted on 6 November, 2018 at 5:15 Comments comments (0)

We have another card from the suit of Swords today-this time it's the 9. This also shows anguish & pain, a theme following on from yesterday's card, but today some of this, at least, is in the form of worrying rather than actual problems that have manifested. This is the card of nightmares, of blowing issues up out of proportion & worrying about things that haven't actually happened yet. It's the feeling when you wake up in the middle of the night & all our problems, real or possi...

10 of Wands.

Posted on 5 November, 2018 at 7:25 Comments comments (0)

The 10 of Wands from the Tarot of the Sweet Twilight shows a painful scene today. There appears to be blood, weariness & a sense of giving up on a situation, despite the end being in sight for these girls. One of them has looked up, so if the others follow they may realise that much as they have suffered a lot, that this doesn't have to continue forever. There is hope that there's something good to be taken from the position they're in as they are so much closer to their goal than they ha...

3 of Bats.

Posted on 1 November, 2018 at 6:45 Comments comments (0)

The final card of the week for us from The Halloween Tarot (I have so many plans tomorrow I won't be around much I'm afraid :( ) is the 3 of Bats (often Swords). This all looks rather scary & dramatic, with even the cat looking uneasy. The bats don't appear to be as friendly as they do in other cards & it's looks like the heart may be in for some pain in one form or another. Yes, there could be some upset or anguish coming into our lives, but then most of us deal with this in varying ...

Temperance.

Posted on 31 October, 2018 at 5:20 Comments comments (0)

Temperance is our card from The Halloween Tarot today, showing a Witch in her kitchen following a recipe to make her special brew. Sometimes she may put this together by memory, other times she makes it up as she goes along, but today she wants to follow the instructions written in her book to make sure she gets all the ingredients in their right proportions. Temperance reminds us that much as at times we may find ourselves veering from one extreme to the other, there are also days when the m...

Queen of Bats.

Posted on 30 October, 2018 at 6:05 Comments comments (0)

The Queen of Bats (often Swords) shows a Queen sitting on her throne, high in the clouds, with some distance between her & others in her life. She isn't anti-social, but instead is preferring to spend some time analysing the situations she's involved in & working out what's going on so she can make clear & just decisions & judgements. To be able to see clearly & not be taken in by pretences or deceptions we may need to step back a little or spend some time working out what...

King of Ghosts.

Posted on 29 October, 2018 at 4:40 Comments comments (0)

We've been quite busy & had lots of sneezing & coughing in our house over the last few days, but things appear to be back on track again & so here I am with another card from The Halloween Tarot today. It's the turn of the King of Ghosts today (often Cups in Tarot decks, so these are friendly Ghosts), sitting on his throne, taking whatever comes his way in his stride & dealing with them in a balanced & caring way. Life can be turbulent & bring unexpected situations our...

5 of Bats.

Posted on 24 October, 2018 at 8:15 Comments comments (0)

The 5 of Bats doesn't have a very happy scene on it today; the masked treat or treater appears to have made off with goodies that belonged to the others in the background. This relates to loss or being treated badly, being at the mercy of someone else's bad behaviour (unless we're the ones profiteering from other people). If we're in the situation where we've lost out to others through no fault of our own it can be upsetting & demoralising. Over time hopefully we'll feel able to move on f...

2 of Bats.

Posted on 23 October, 2018 at 4:40 Comments comments (0)

The 2 of Bats (often called Swords) is the card with a message for us today, & this time it relates to decisions, balance & possible tension that needs to be resolved. The girl dressed as an angel is stuck & unable to move on for some reason; possibly because she's lost her way, or maybe she wasn't happy with the direction she was supposed to be heading in & so she's considering other options that may be available to her. There may be an area in our lives that this applies to ...

9 of Imps.

Posted on 22 October, 2018 at 6:20 Comments comments (0)

The countdown to the 31st October, to Halloween, has started, so of course I thought it's time to get The Halloween Tarot by Kipling West out to use this week. Today's card is the 9 of Imps (Wands are Imps in this deck). Here you car see one Imp venturing our with his Treat or Treat bucket, ready to go collecting Halloween Candy. The others are encouraging him to do what they may not have enough courage to do, helping to spur him on so he doesn't stop or give up. The message for us today is a...

Hope.

Posted on 19 October, 2018 at 9:10 Comments comments (0)

Hope is our final card of the week from Les Vampires, & it has the Keywords Anticipation, Bright prospects, Wish. Much as the vampire in the picture is in the dark & surrounded by symbols of endings & change, she knows that there is always hope to be found somewhere if she looks for it. This isn't about accepting bad or difficult situations in our lives as being the norm, but rather it's about looking for the spark of light in the dark, or seeing the ember in the dying fire that g...
