Daily Tarot Card – The Emperor

Magnificent card. The Emperor is associated with rule, order, strict discipline, authority. The penultimate father figure, and fathers in general. Also associated with Mars. The Gryphon is a combination of an eagle and a lion, both majestic, powerful animals. In the Alice books, the Gryphon is a bossy, pretentious type who acts superior to everyone….

Daily Tarot Card – Nine of Swords

Aaaaand we’re back to Swords. At least in the Alice Tarot the Nine of Swords is not as bleak as in the RWS. Standard meanings for this card include worries, nightmares, anxiety attacks, feeling overwhelmed and scared. In the Alice Tarot, that is one pissed off little girl. She’s about had it with all the…

Daily Tarot Card – Page of Wands

Certainly apropos for the day. I’m waiting for news on the car, which went into the shop this morning. Pages signify messages, communication, often a young person. The car shop owner’s son where I took the car was there this morning, didn’t see the owner himself. Not sure if the kid’s out of high school…

Daily Tarot Card – Death

Well that’s just ducky. Death doesn’t *typically* predict the death of a person. It usually means a huge upheaval, something very fundamental, in your life. It’s more the death of a way of life, like going from married to divorced, or something equally life-altering. I’m already divorced so no issues there. Of course this is…

Daily Tarot Card – Eight of Wands

Alice and the Red Queen running around Looking-Glass world. The Eight of Wands is a card of speed, everything moving very rapidly, events speeding up, maybe moreso than you can keep up with. Here in Looking-Glass Land, you have to run as fast as you can just to stay in place. That’s kind of what…

Daily Tarot Card–Six of Wands

  Alice Tarot from Baba Studio again. I really love this card. Here Alice is shielding herself from the shower of cards. She’s realized the court members are “nothing but a pack of cards.” She’s seen them for what they are, and realizes they are not a threat, thereby reducing them into their true state….

Daily Tarot Card–Queen of Coins

Sigh. Again. Getting tired of all these repeats. I had the Queen of Pentacles from the Tarot of the Hidden Realm on April 7. Two weeks later she’s back, in a different dress. Of course, the Alice Tarot gives a slightly different take on her, as the White Chess Queen. She’s the mother who thinks…

Daily Tarot Card–King of Cups

Continuing on with the Alice Tarot, I pulled the King of Cups today. As I shuffled I mentally asked “What is the lesson I need to learn today?” So the King of Cups is Fire of Water. We have contrasts here. The King is normally in control of his emotions, someone with great depth of…

Daily Tarot Card–8 of Coins

So, two shots of the card today. This is the 8 of Coins from the Alice Tarot by Baba Studio. I took two pictures because I love to show the cold metallic stamping on these cards. It’s very subtle and you can only see it when the card is on a certain angle. The new…

Daily Tarot Card–Nine of Wands

I could do with some fire energy, although this may be more than I bargained for. Nine of Wands from the Tarot of the Hidden Realm. Wow. Rising like a phoenix from the ashes, or flames. I don’t actually see any ashes here. That’s like crushing something, or being crushed, and getting back up even…
