    Justice : The Badass : The Magician

    Badass or Magician...rebel or trickster?

    Whatever role I choose to play I need to understand that there are consequences to every action that I take (Justice).

    King of Swords : 4 of Pentacles : The Empress

    In this spread the King of Swords is elementally conflicted in a sequence of AIR v EARTH + EARTH. This would seem to indicate a personal challenge (as I often see the King of Swords in tarot decks as my own significator). The challenge is all about conserving resources and being frugal (according to one of the meanings I associate with the 4 of Pentacles). I need to exercise some self control particularly with regard to spending! The Empress is generally a card of nurture. I see it in this spread as an indication of the need to care more for myself and fro my well-being - which will be enhanced if I can live without being so much of a spendthrift.

  • Finding the Middle Path

    8 of Wands : Temperance : Page of Cups

    There is a conflict here between the dynamic 8 of Wands suggesting movement and action and the Page of Cups who seems overwhelmed by emotion, head bowed with stress or grief (or so it appears from the image on the card in this deck). Caught between extremes Temperance urges me to find the moderate way, a 'middle path' that maintains equilibrium…

  • Working Together

    Ace of Swords : 6 of Pentacles : 4 of Swords

    For the longest time my daughter has wanted me to re-decorate her bedroom at my house and transform it from it's little girl and childhood past into a more grown up teenage bedroom. My daughter is now 16 and her room hasn't really been changed substantially since she was 6. So since this week is my half-term break I have sacrificed my down-time (4 of Swords) and launched into action stripping walls and repainting them (Ace of Swords). My daughter has helped where she can (and has shown willing). Like that Bingo game featured on the 6 of Pentacles - we are tackling this together...and, believe it or not, having fun!

  • Frustration

    8 of Swords : The Magician : Justice

    I see The Magician as a card of great potential and ability...but with the 8 of Swords close by I wonder if this will be hampered, restrained, held back in some way leading to frustration. Justice would seem to suggest that whatever occurs is fair and deserved, so I guess I will just have to wait and see...

  • Severing Ties?

    Death : 2 of Swords : The World

    Death and The World suggest that one phase ends and a new one is about to begin. This is a message that I seem to have been getting quite a lot lately. My big decision (signified by the scissors in the 2 of Swords) is whether I actually want to sever the ties with my past or not...It would be for the best, I am pretty sure of that….but all the same…

  • Rest

    4 of Swords : The Sun : High Priestess

    The first day of half-term break from school. Yay! I spent the day reading The Narrow Road to the Deep North and couldn't put it down. I have about a quarter of the book left. It is so well written and so compelling a read (although harrowing in places). It made me smile somewhat when I saw The Sun at the centre of the spread for the day. Yes - it signals happiness and contentment (which is great) - but the image also contains a sun burst so reminiscent of the Japanese flag (and my book is all about the POWs captured by the Japanese who are working on the 'Death Railway').

    This time out (4 of Swords) is exactly what I need at the moment - a chance to recharge the batteries after a stressful month since school started back in September...and at the end of my three-card draw is the High Priestess who is there to remind me that wisdom and knowledge often come from quiet reflection...

  • It's About Time!

    Nine of Rods : The Angel (trad. Judgement) : Eight of Cups

    The Angel brings an opportunity to start afresh and use the experience I have gained (and the mistakes I have made) to make a better go of things next time round. There will be no more fighting or need to be defensive (Nine of Rods) and I can leave all the crap behind (Eight of Cups). It's about time!

  • I Don't Have To Fight Anymore

    Death : King of Coins : Nine of Rods

    After the stress and pressure of the last week or two things are now looking up. Death, combined with the Nine of Rods would seem to indicate that the struggle is over and that this particular 'battle' has come to an end. This is a great relief to me and since I managed (somehow) to maintain my head and keep working through it all (qualities embodied by the King of Coins) I can afford some self-indulgence today...I don't have to fight anymore.

  • Should I Fight The System?

    Knight of Rods : The Emperor : Eight of Cups

    There is a lot of agitation at work at the moment (signified by the restless and jumpy Knight of Rods in this spread). There are some assessment and 'quality assurance' plans for work scrutiny which have been put into place and against which everyone will be measured (rules and regulations which I see embodied by The Emperor). I am not the only one out of sorts and so many of my colleagues feel like me. Now the question is, do I fight the system? Or do I instead just accept it and walk away from conflict….(Eight of Cups)?
