Weekly Card XXI The World and All Its Stories

Sometimes experiences elevate us to a whole ‘nother level of being. We’ve looked at XXI The World a few times before, here, here, and here. And we know, from Tarot . . . It’s Easier Than You Think, that this Major Arcana energy is about Paradise. That’s definitely a whole other level…

Weekly Card 2 of Cups Makes a Mess

Oh, this tea party is so wonderfully 2 of Cups! We’ve got two individuals who aren’t necessarily an immediate match sharing a portion of their individual journeys. The table between them is loaded with all sorts of good stuff as well as the mess from used up good stuff. And it’s all…

XVII The Star Shines Bright

  No, you’re not seeing things. That is indeed the Nativity Scene on a Tarot card. Sadly, Tarot is often misunderstood as a “heathen” construct. It’s better looked at as a tool that transcends religions and dogmas. The Golden Tarot of the Tsar uses images based on the rich tradition of iconography…

Weekly Card Winter Solstice, the Depths of Stillness

Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere . . . that darkest time of the year, when the sun “stands still” for 3 days. In that stillness, if we choose, is an opportunity to pause and explore our depths, to go within our own deepest darkness. We’ll need those resources in the cold…

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 10 of Pentacles Revisited

    We know from Tarot . . . It’s Easier Than You Think that 10 of Pentacles is about completion or establishment in the material world, in health, or in finances. We’ve talked about the spiritual development behind that attainment in an earlier post. So what on earth are we to…

XIX The Sun Sets a Holiday Table

Since XIX The Sun insists on dominating this month, let’s let it host a Thanksgiving feast. As you remember from Tarot . . . It’s Easier Than You Think – as well as the recent XIX The Sun posts – the Sun is self-actualisation. Those three dots under the sun on the…

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…

XIX The Sun Yet Again

  In the little more than year and an half of Weekly Card posts, XIX The Sun has come up four times. And, spoilers, we’re not done with it this month. And that’s what the Sun does. It has to be seen. Again and again. It comes up every day. It doesn’t…

Weekly Card XXI The World Revisited

  We’re beginning November in the Tarot World of Paradise! We’ve been here before, more than once. It’s not a one and done deal in Tarot to reach XXI The World. We spiral in higher – or deeper – levels of growth, returning home to our most-fulfilled selves at the end of…
