Tarot Card of the Week: April 3 – April 9, 2017
Six of Cups
With Venus retrograding back into Pisces this week, dreams of yesterday and the past may be with you, as you find yourself lost in nostalgia and of times gone by.
An old friend or lover may come back into your life and reconnect with you. Alternately you may feel the urge to reach out and touch someone from your past.
The Six of Cups — this version from Charissa Drengsen’s Steampunk Tarot — speaks of memories from the past being triggered today. Possibly by an event — a song that reminds you of days gone by, a scene from your childhood, or a scent that comes wafting back and conjures up feelings of nostalgia.
Fun times and playfulness abound for you, and children may figure prominently for you with thoughts of your own childhood being triggered by their presence.
You will feel light hearted as if you don’t need to worry about anything and in doing so you can throw from you worries that have been burdening you lately.
Tarot Card of the Week: March 6 – March 12, 2017
Five of Cups
If you are experiencing feelings of loneliness and isolation this week, you might want to ask yourself whether you’re seeing the full picture.
The Five of Cups is often tied to feelings of disappointment and regret. You may be feeling shut out at time when you most needed to be let in; rejected at a time when you most wanted to feel included.
There may be some anger here as well, as in feeling duped in some way or betrayed. But in this version — from Cathy McClelland’s gorgeous Star Tarot — the emphasis is more on what has been lost than on what can be gained.
The woman in this card focuses on the three cups spilled at her feet rather than the two that are still left and are overflowing with symbols of happiness and joy.
She can’t even see them as she’s so busy protecting herself from the elements (the rain and storm clouds brewing behind her) and focusing on what she’s lost.
Tarot Card of the Week: Feb 20 – Feb 26, 2017
Two of Wands
This week ends with a new Moon solar eclipse, as seen in the image of this card. But it’s the days leading up to it you most want to think about. The Two of Wands — like all Twos — refers to taking the spark of an idea (seen in the Aces) and forming it into a tangible, working plan.
This requires looking at it from all angles — weighing the pros and cons, evaluating time and energy, separating the wheat from the chaff and so on. This is beautifully represented in the imagery depicted on this version of the card.
In this version of the card — from Nathalie Hertz’s beautiful Fantastical Tarot — we see two leopards, one dark and one light, each standing watch by their own ornate pillars. The dark leopard is an exact mirror image of the light.
Their sleek bodies curve toward one another and become “one,” reminding us of the power of uniting opposing forces to make one stronger entity. The Sun shines high in the sky between them.
The key here is balance: you won’t be able to make something happen without careful consideration and planning. And all the planning in the world won’t cause your ideas to materialize without putting in the effort.
Tarot Card of the Week: Jan 23 – Jan 29, 2017
Queen of Wands
This is going to be good week for standing out in a crowd and showcasing your many talents.
Whether you’re trying to make an impression at work or are hoping to leave your mark on the world in other ways, you should have no problem making your presence known.
The Queen of Wands — this version from Dana Driscoll’s Tarot of Trees — is warm, vibrant, confident and creative. She knows how to lead with her heart and to garner the respect of others.
She embodies the feminine or yin aspects of Fire (wands) energy: warmth, enthusiasm, energy and drive. She’s regal and majestic; dynamic and refined; confident and authoritative. She’s creative, expressive and passionate. She’s also very worldly and knowledgeable.
She may be someone in your life, an event or a part of yourself. She may be a supervisor, a parent, a friend or even some facet of yourself that has long been dormant.
Tarot Card of the Week: Jan 9, 2017 – Jan 15, 2017
Ace of Coins
You know exactly what you are doing this week and will not be swayed by luck or chance.
The figure in this image — the Ace of Coins from the Chinese Tarot — holds an I Ching coin which is used for divination purposes; however there are no question marks surrounding what you need to next to proceed and you do not need any divination tools to tell you what needs to be done.
You are already packed and ready to go on a new venture and are ready for whatever comes your way.
If there is a new venture you have been wanting to start do not delay. You know what you need to do next and the energy in the red blossoms clinging to the tree despite the signs of a strong wind only spur you on to take your first step forward into the unknown… or is it the known?
With Mercury now in direct motion and preparing to move back into Capricorn, there is a lot of stability and security around you. This means you will not be second guessing what is coming next. My money would be on you knowing exactly what is coming next and where it is coming from.
Tarot Card of the Week: Nov 28 – Dec 4, 2016
Prince of Wands
If there is something you have been aiming for and are not sure how to accomplish it, then this is the time to jump in with both feet and just go for it!
The Prince of Wands — this is the King of Wands from Cathy McClelland’s Star Tarot — implies that you have many changes coming your way and you are not afraid to reach out and grab them.
There are tools around for you to use that facilitate the journey you take to bring about these changes.
The Unicorn in this card and the background it runs in front of suggests that for a while now you have not been sure what to do but you have never given up knowing that you are going to do something big.
Suddenly, the answers have come to you and your joy is written across your face for everyone to see. With this week’s New Moon in fiery Sagittarius, you will see that nothing will hold you back; if anyone tries they’ll have more to contend with than they realise.
Tarot Card of the Week: Sept 19 – Sept 25, 2016
Six of Scrolls
This is a time when wisdom meets hopes and dreams. The elephant in this card portrays that which is ancient and wise and the knowledge which a person like this can bestow on you.
Keep your ears open this week for one such as this because it seems as if they have something very wise and nurturing to give you in the form of words and knowledge.
There is almost a spiritual connotation to this card — the Six of Scrolls from the beautiful Chrysalis Tarot — as the colour purple surrounds the elephant (giver of wisdom and knowledge).
You may find that you go within yourself to draw out that which is wise and strong… that which you always knew. With this knowledge a transformation takes place within you.
The point where the woman in this card touches the elephant’s forehead with her own is where the 6th chakra lays. This is where psychic information flows in and out and relays that the knowledge and wisdom you attain does not need to be from books but is simply “known” by you.
