XII The Hanged Man Reconsidered

I love it when the cards are this literal! Here we are, at the winter solstice when the sun seems to hang in the sky, not moving from its ever-changing trajectory. And XII The (immobile) Hanged Man shows up. When we’ve looked at XII The Hanged Man before we’ve seen a slightly…

XIX The Sun’s Flow

Last year, it seemed XIX The Sun was showing up regularly.  It’s been almost exactly a year since we’ve last seen it. Have you noticed times in your readings when particular cards show up over and over?  You know, kind of like the kids poking you in the arm, “Hey, Mom”, “Hey,…

Non-Judgemental XX Judgement

As you’ve probably noticed (hello, anyone out there?), this is no longer a “weekly card” feature.  It’s a “whenever I can make the time for it” feature. And hey, no judgements. Except this one. I much prefer Aeon to Judgement as a title for the XX Major card (which we’ve seen before)….

Weekly Card The Captivating Fool

We’ve all met 0 The Fool in our lives. And we’ve all been 0 The Fool at least once or twice. (One of my favourite expressions is, “Mama didn’t raise no small fool”.) And, with a little less embarrassment, we’ve met 0 The Fool here a couple of times. So let’s finesse…

Weekly Card The Tribal Conscience of V The Heirophant

When was the last time you ran into someone wearing a woolly, horned headdress? It probably wasn’t at any of the places you’d imagine meeting V The Heirophant. So what’s going on here, in Helen Jones and Jane Lyle’s Renaissance Tarot image? For starters, it can be helpful to step outside of…

Weekly Card VII The Chariot

It’s good to have some of the gaps in our tarot view filled in this past month. Since this is (mostly) a random draw, the past two years have seen repeated cards, so not all 78 have been covered yet. Time to meet VII The Chariot. How do we relate to someone…

Weekly Card VI The Lovers

Can it be? In the 2 years we’ve been looking at a card each week, we’ve never seen VI The Lovers? Finally, here it is! Which is often the way people feel after encountering the choice they’ve been waiting for. The one they recognize as truly “theirs”. Wait! “Choice”? Not “person? Yah-hah….

Weekly Card O The Fool Shows Another Face

Wow! Who’s this guy?? Dire straits and a real mess, this one! You’ve probably noticed the bare butt hanging out of his jester’s leggings and his matching (?) jester’s hat. There’s a lynx hanging onto his leg with tooth and claw and a very interested crocodile about to grab the other leg….

Weekly Card X The Whirling Wheel of Fortune

Do you ever look at a card and go, “huh, what?”   (Yes, I know, for those of you at the beginning of your journey this can feel like a constant state!) How about circumstances? When things change around you, do you have trouble orienting? Confusion can easily take over. Well, as we…

Weekly Card XVII The Stars in All Their Glory

We’ve looked at the basic Tarot . . . It’s Easier Than You Think idea of XVII The Star as a calling. And we’ve talked about how unlikely the elements of your personal mission can be. So what does Giorgio Trevisan’s beautiful image from the Tarot of the Renaissance have to teach…
