Tarot Card of the Week – The Lovers


Tarot Card of the Week: Nov 7 – Nov 13, 2016

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.

The Lovers card is one representing the harmony of the universe, a glimpse of true mind, body and spirit connection with someone or even something, depending on the reading.

In Tarot, the lovers can be a bond between friends, a mutually spiritual attraction to each other, that leans to a soulmate connection. There is a solid trust in these two Lovers, they give each other strength, confidence. They are prepared to weather the storms of life together. There is an intimate and close relationship between the two whether it’s sexual or spiritual.

The Lovers represent perfection, harmony and mutual attractiveness. Their trust in one another gives them strength and confidence to overcome the obstacles in life.

The bond that the two lovers has created is incredibly strong and is often reflective of a marriage, soul mate connection or very intimate and close relationship.

Tarot Card of the Week: Ten of Swords

10-of-swordsTarot Card of the Week: March 28 – April 3
Ten of Swords

The man in this card seems to be going through a tremendous amount of suffering, he doesn’t have just one sword at his back but 10! It appears he is going through some terrible misfortune. But the truth is he is going through a lot of DRAMA, not TRAUMA. A lot of the things he may be suffering are due to lack of faith or struggling upstream -through a path that seems very dark.

This week, I’m using the Legacy of the Divine Tarot, created by digital artist Ciro Marchetti. Inspired by the Rider-Waite, this exquisite and magical deck takes you into the heart of fantasy, yet the illustrations adequately portray the human “feeling” we all experience at one time or other.

The suit of Swords in Tarot represents the element of Air. These cards are associated with change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict. Like the other suits in tarot, they represent the human condition.

Not every day is the happy day we wish it to be, we sometimes have to resist forces outside ourselves and forces that turn us to the dark side of thinking. It can be a constant battle.
