Daily Tarot Card – Eight of Pentacles

Eight of Pentacles from the Sun and Moon Tarot.  Learning and perfecting new skills, being diligent and working hard towards a goal. Cultivating what’s been planted, waiting for it to ripen and mature (in a metaphorical sense, if not literal). Sometimes we need to temper our impatience for what we want to accomplish, give ourselves time…

Daily Tarot Card – Three for the Price of One

Doing things a little differently today. I actually pulled these cards last night, with a sort of general question about how today would go. The three cards are for “morning” “noon” and “afternoon”. Kinda, sorta. These are from the “Sun and Moon” Tarot by Vanessa Decort. The deck is more Crowley-based than Waite-based, but it’s…

Daily Tarot Card – The Green Woman

 Analogous to the Empress. The Green Woman’s position on the Wheel of the Year is Midsummer (Summer Solstice, or Litha). Element is Fire, hour is noon. She is the earthly manifestation of female solar energy, feminine fire. Fire is associated in the Tarot with creativity, and the Green Woman is all things green and fertile….

Daily Tarot Card – The Archer

The Archer, from the Wildwood Tarot. Its place on the Wheel of the Year is the Spring Equinox (March 21). Element is Air, creativity and new ideas, inspiration. It looks as if she and her faithful hunting dogs just came out of the mist behind them, as if they’d used it for a shield while…

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 – Page of Wands

In this deck the pages are “Knaves” and Stakes correspond to Wands. The Knave is represented by Ligeia, the titular character in the story and poem by Edgar Allan Poe. This card strays from the Dracula story, but Poe’s Ligeia returns from death as well. The Knave, or Page of Wands, is a passionate young…

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–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…
