Weekly Card the Fiery Princess of Wands

Wow! Who’s this fire chick?! Definitely a warrior princess. We’ve actually seen other versions of her before, as the Page of Wands. But this Princess of Wands doesn’t look playful or sedate. She’s got her club of fire, so she means business. She’s wielding passionate belief as a tool or weapon. And…

Weekly Card The Rational King of Swords

We’ve got lots of information about the King of Swords from our last two posts. So what do we see in the Mystical Cats Tarot Sky King, the equivalent of the King of Swords? Let’s start with the name. Why Sky? Since Swords are the element of air, the very airy Sky…

Weekly Card The Queen of Swords is Not Amused

EeeYIKES! Who is this chick and how do we stay as far away from her as possible??! Actually, we’ve met her before. Our last visit was much less severe than this image, from The Golden Dawn Tarot. Look back at that visit for a moment (don’t worry, the link will open in…

Weekly Card the Playful Page of Wands

Now here’s a Page of Wands that looks like enthusiastic fire energy! The last time we looked at this Page, it was with one of the older, much more sedate decks. Jump right into your life with this Page (you know you want to!). Where are you ready to play with life…

Weekly Card Healing the Knight of Swords

Our last straightforward look at the Knight of Swords covered the concepts of adventurous, forceful energy in the realm of ideas, concerns and communication, from Tarot . . . It’s Easier Than You Think. So let’s delve into the specifics of the Healing Tarot image. Before we start, though, I want to…

Weekly Card King of Cups Under Alias

What’s the deal with King of Cups? This is the second time we’ve met him and he’s still not showing up under his most traditional name. This time, it’s as the Father of Water from Joyce and Pamela Eakin’s Tarot of the Spirit. That deck uses Father, Mother, Brother and Sister instead…

Weekly Card Knight of Wands

  Whoa, Nellie!! Knight of Wands is the most adventurous and forceful of the Court Cards: the most active card in the most aggressive suit. He may signify someone crossing your path or he may be rushing you to encounter that aspect of yourself. Brian Williams’ Renaissance Tarot representation is much more…
