Daily Tarot Card – The Ancestor

The Ancestor (normally The Hierophant) from the Wildwood Tarot. Each card in this deck is associated with a time of year, a place on the Wheel, and the Ancestor stands at Imbolc, February 1. It signifies a shift, a new path, new experiences (a departure from the rigid rule of authority and doctrine that normally…

Daily Tarot Card – The Blasted Oak

From the Wildwood Tarot. I deliberately pulled this one out today because I had a strange dream last night. I was sitting on the floor in a house which in some superficial ways resembled the house I lived in in New Jersey. There was one other person with me, I don’t know who. I was…

Daily Tarot Card – Eight of Wands

Eight of Wands from the Tarot of the Hidden Realm. This is action, movement toward a goal. It’s going to happen quickly, like the flight of an arrow released by the skilled archer. Her red hair shows us her connection to the element of fire. A project takes shape and gets the “go-ahead’ from those…

Daily Tarot Card – Nine of Pentacles

I just can’t get the color right with the camera in the office. The light is terrible. It’s really a much prettier card than it looks here. This is the Nine of Pentacles from the Victorian Romantic Tarot by Baba Studio. One of my favorite cards in the deck. A lovely lady, clearly well-off and…

Daily Tarot Card – King of Wands

King of Wands from the Tarot of Prague (2016). Oh we’re playing with fire here. Really. The King of Wands is fire of fire. Super charismatic and charming, people naturally follow him. He’s full of passion and energy, the kind of person who gets projects off the ground. He may not always think things through…

New Arrival and Daily Tarot Card – Death

What a great way to start off with the new edition of the Tarot of Prague! Can’t say the Tarot doesn’t have a sense of humor. This is one of the Death cards from the new 2016 edition (it comes with 2 Death cards, and 2 Sun cards, so you can pick which ones you…

Daily Tarot Card – The Magician

Switching it up again, using the Sacred Rose Tarot. An oldie but a goody, and one I don’t use nearly enough. So much great art in many of the older decks. This one was originally printed in 1982, although my copy dates to the early ’90s. The Magician indicates spiritual knowledge, and creativity. He has…

Daily Tarot Card – Knight of Wands

Back to the Shadowscapes deck. Today the Knight of Wands comes charging in. Wands of course are Fire, and the Knight is air of fire. There’s a little bit of the water from the Queen in him, tempering his fiery nature, so he’s not without feeling. He’s brash and dynamic. Think of a keynote speaker…

Daily Tarot Card – Nine of Pentacles

Ah, we likey. Nine of Pentacles from the Efflorescent Tarot. (I like to identify the decks because so often I read someone’s blog and they have lovely cards posted as part of a reading, but never mention what deck they’re from. Drives me nuts.) Pentacles are associated with the element Earth, money and material concerns,…

Daily Tarot Card – Strength

An apt card for the day. This card is not about physical strength (although it could be) but more about internal strength, getting control of yourself, remaining calm and in control in difficult situations. Harnessing your inner strength, having the strong spirit that can give to others. It’s about taming your inner beast, and carrying…
