Tarot Card of the Week- Queen of Pentacles

Queen of PentaclesTarot of the Week – May 22 – May 28, 2017

Queen of Pentacles

This week we explore the world of the Mystic Faerie Tarot. These sweet cards have a mystic earthy feel to them.

Fairies seem to be appropriate for spring when all is in bloom, and the deck depicts a certain mystic glow of light that represents fairies perfectly. From the deck, we pull the Queen of Pentacles, your tarot card of the week.

The Fairy Queen or Queen of the Fairies was a figure from folklore who was believed to rule the fairies. Based on Shakespeare’s “A MidSummer Night’s Dream,” in English-speaking cultures, she is often named Titania or Mab.

Titania was a woman to contend with, furiously loyal and protective, she embodies what all women are with that natural tendency to protect the most vulnerable among us. As you can see she is contemplating the great abundance around her.

She lacks for nothing, yet she sits alone contemplating wondering how she can make her world a better place. She is in charge of her dominion and all around her, and by sheer force of will, and hard work, she maintains a beautiful home and kingdom around her.

Tarot Card of the Week: King of Pentacles

King of PentaclesTarot Card of the Week: Apr 17 – Apr 23, 2017

King of Pentacles

This week I present you with one of my favorites cards in the Mythic Tarot Deck, the King of Pentacles. The card tells the story of King Midas, who could turn everything he touched into pure gold.

He’d done a favor for the Goddess Dionysus, and she granted him any wish he wanted. Without thinking, he asked that everything he touches turn to gold. Unfortunately, the dream came true.

His food, his servants, his dogs, everything turned into gold. Including his own beloved daughter. He begged the Goddess to take the gift back. She did by having him wash is hands in a magical river and everything went back to how it was.

The moral of the story? He was already a wealthy man, no golden touch was needed for true happiness. The King of Pentacles holds a coin representing money. He sits on his throne, decorated with the heads of golden goats, behind the throne we see his servants and a pile of money at his feet.

The goat which represents Capricorn in the background tells us the King is a planner and brilliant strategist.

The Nine of Wands in the Mystic Dreamer Tarot Deck represents courage, persistence, a test of faith and resilience. All these powers are at your disposal when you see this card in a reading.

The Suit of Wands represents the element of Fire. The card meanings of “wands” are associated with: energy, spirituality, inspiration, determination, strength, intuition, creative thinking, ambition, and growth.

Depending on other cards, this one could either help clarify a work or relationship situation.  So let’s first take a look at the image.

Here we see a beautiful woman, a representation of our psyche the intuitive side of us, she is our sixth sense. She looks thoughtfully on to choices she has to make. She’s bathed in an ethereal, glow. She contemplates what do to as she struggles for enlightenment.

King of Cups

The King of Cups sits thoughtfully as depicted in Mystic Dreamer Tarot (by Heidi Darras and Barbara Moore . He is a man of urgent passions, intelligent and ready to solve any problem that comes his way. Behind him are turbulent seas, shadows and darkness, but it doesn’t seem to faze him much because relies on his strength and judgement.  He may seem frustrated, but he skillfully calms himself among the turbulence to think things through.

The suit of Cups is all about compassion, love, strength and empathy. The King of Cups represents the balance between emotions and intellect. You may be thinking with your heart, but the King of Cups urges you to think with your head and looks at things in a different perspective.

When you see the King of Cups you can be assured you are very much in control of the situation.  You have a deep understanding of your feelings and you are ready to connect accordingly. When life throws you a curve ball, you can draw from the strength of your maturity level, and really take a thoughtful look at what is good for you, and what is not.

The Lovers

Using the Gilded Tarot the sensual and smoldering Lovers is drawn for this week.  The light of the universe shines on these two, watching over them, and celebrating in their love and connection for each other.

Tarot Card of the Week – The Fool

FoolCard of the Week: Sep 26 – Oct 2, 2016:

The Fool

You’re only given a little spark of madness, you mustn’t lose it.
~ Robin Williams

The Fool of the Witches Tarot deck is on a ledge, his foot so very close to the edge we feel almost scared for him. There is his trusty dog, a representation of the universe that is keeping him on the path.

The Fool looks up, and doesn’t care where he is going but he is happy in the moment.

 The Fool in the major arcana of the Tarot, is numbered zero, which is the number of unlimited potential and unlimited possibilities. It can be considered the first card in the deck or the last, doesn’t really matter where he falls.

If you look at the card you can see the fool doesn’t seem to care where he’s been or where he is going, but he is jubilant and carefree. He doesn’t care what is behind him or in front, but only about the present moment.

When you see the Fool in a Tarot reading it represents a need to change things, to start fresh, or take a different direction.

This card is all about personal growth and development which means sometimes taking risks, not looking where you are going, but simply plunging in.
