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 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 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 Celebrating the 3 of Cups

Wow! We’re getting the Tarot version of 2×4 between the eyes (anybody else have that dent there from calls to pay attention?). It’s been less than a month since we last saw the 3 of Cups. So what does it mean when we repeatedly see the same message in the cards? One…

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 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 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 Your Tarot Relationship

Rather than look at a specific card this week, let’s talk a little about how to use tarot effectively. Do you know folks – or are you one – who run to the deck for every little thing? Those are the folks who’ve lost their ability to make a decision without drawing…
