Weekly Card Two of Wands

Another first!   Finally, a look at the inspiring 2 of Wands. At the Ace, we get an inkling of a calling. Now that the 2 shows up, we’re getting a sense of where in the world we’re going to express that inkling. Our inner enthusiasm, our inner drive, is seeking its outer…

Weekly Card The Queen of Cups

We’re meeting another regal presence from the Court Cards for the first time: the Queen of Cups. As a person, this is the one who’s first foot forward is the emotional one. S/he’s involved and connected with those around her, directly from the heart. S/he’s the one you can go to for…

Weekly Card 10 of Cups

Aah, the big rainbow of 10 of Cups . . . . We know rainbows from the biblical promise of “never again”. We’ve learnt what we needed from the deluge and don’t need that experience again as a species. Within Tarot, we know it from a reference in XIV Temperance, which we…

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 3 of Swords

This post is part of a Tarot Blog Hop.  You can find the previous blog here, the master list here, and the next blog here. Oh, we so don’t love to see these kinds of cards . . . the “sad” ones, the “bad” ones. We’ve had a couple of encounters before,…

Weekly Card 3 of Cups

What a beautiful card for a spring day (at least, for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere – those of you in the South can lift a cup to spring days yet to come)! 3 of Cups is a social, cheerful card saying, Celebrate! And find your best friends to celebrate…

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 The Ace of Wands

What if all you had to do to feel passionate about life was to step into a flow of passion? Well, Ace of Fire, also known as Ace of Wands, is that flow. It’s the seed, the potential for the complete development of values, goals, the desired lifestyle (Tarot . . ….

Weekly Card 4 of Cups

  4 of Cups gets a bad rap in many tarot traditions; it’s seen as the card of boredom, discontent, missed opportunities. Since creativity and emotions, the watery stuff of our lives, like to flow, the stable 4 can be seen as a dam interfering with movement. And, yes, 4 of Cups…

Weekly Card IX The Hermit

  For a Hermit, there sure is a lot going on in this image! On the keyword level, that makes sense; wisdom doesn’t come out of nowhere. It comes from an experience-rich life, with depths of analysis and understanding. And, like the Major Arcana, experiences that bring wisdom change the way we…
