  • So

  • On Top

    Page of Wands : 7 of Wands : 4 of Swords

    My situation is improving and sees me on top. This is the message of the 7 of Wands. Now I can relate to this card because my workload is lightening as we approach the end of the school year and as I approach the end of my examiner marking. There is still 'stuff' to do and I have a new project bubbling under which will need attention very soon (something recognised by the appearance of the Page of Wands in today's spread). Although there is time to relax (4 of Swords) I know that I cannot become too complacent…time is still at something of a premium.

  • Repose

    10 of Swords : The Sun : 4 of Swords

    The 10 of Swords suggests that the worst is over and that things are now going to improve. This message is amplified by The Sun which is one of the most positive cards in the whole of the Tarot deck. The present (and let's hope the future too) is bright. I can afford to relax a little and take it easy for this evening...at least that is what I think the 4 of Swords in this spread is telling me. An end to stress and time for a repose.

  • A Hiccup

    There has been a slight hiccup to proceedings! I am able to access the Internet but am not at home as I am at meetings in Manchester. (I was here yesterday and have been here all day today and will be here for most of the day tomorrow). Normal service will be resumed shortly...

  • And Again...?

    10 of Wands : Knight of Discs : 5 of Swords

    The Knight of Discs is still hanging around with an emphasis on slow but steady progress. Today the card is shouldered by the 10 of Wands and the 5 of Swords. There is a suggestion here that I need some sort of 'underhand' strategy (5 of Swords) to lighten the burden of duty I bear (10 of Wands). I need to rationalise the tasks that are due as well as any extra tasks that I am tempted to take on. The 5 of Swords may even suggest the need to cut a few corners….but that wouldn't be doing any job properly, would it?

  • On The Right Track

    Ace of Swords : Knight of Discs : 2 of Cups

    I get a sense, from the Knight of Discs at the centre of the spread again, that I am on the right track - plodding slowly but surely and diligently onwards. Yes, there may be challenges ahead (an ill-dignified Ace of Swords in an elemental sequence of AIR v EARTH + WATER) but then life would be so much duller without them. The 2 of Cups is a card of co-operation. A problem shared is a problem halved… I know that when I waver I need only to turn to the support of others to get going again and see the glimmer of light in situations that seem rather too dark for my liking.

  • Leaving The Past Behind

    8 of Cups : Knight of Discs : 5 of Cups

    These cards tell me that I should leave the past behind (8 of Cups) and plod onwards steadfastly and steadily (Knight of Discs). There is little point worrying over what ifs and what may have beens and though something may have been lost, much still remains (5 of Cups). Again, the cards that I have drawn, apart form the Knight of Discs, are often seen as challenges or problems - but I see them as so very pertinent to where I am right now and draw strength from the accuracy of the message that they give…

  • Release

    8 of Swords : The Tower : 7 of Wands

    The Tower can cause some alarm when it turns up in a tarot reading - but it can also be welcome. If I read these cards sequentially as they were drawn I can see The Tower as release (and escape) from the bonds that tie up the figure in the 8 of Swords - and then the 7 of Wands reflects an improved condition, a state of being 'on top' and of having triumphed over difficulty. This is a pretty strong narrative for a Sunday morning! I can certainly relate to it, however. I am out of the doldrums of the last few months and feel 'spiritually invigorated'. I am enjoying my exploration of this particular tarot deck which is largely RWS inspired. It has given me clear messages so far. I think that one of the problems I was beginning to have with tarot was that I was using too many non-traditional and unusual decks and was getting 'psychically confused' and I felt physically exhausted. It is not such a good idea, for me at least, to try to understand several different (and often conflicting) tarot systems at the same time or in swift succession. The Tarot Mucha is new to me but familiar all the same.

  • Restarting My Journey

    The Empress : 6 of Swords : The Moon

    I have had a break from Tarot for the last few months, but over the past week or so I have thought several times about making another start so I bought the Tarot Mucha and here goes…

    I have needed the time since I stopped blogging in March to recharge my batteries and nurture myself. This idea seems to be embodied in The Empress who is all about nurture and care. The 6 of Swords is aptly at the centre of the spread. The card has connotations of a journey into new waters - and today marks the start of my own journey onwards again through Tarot. I am not certain where the journey may lead and the way ahead is signalled by The Moon which often represents confusion or bewilderment...We shall see...

  • Friday's Cards

    Ace of Wands : The World

    These are Friday's cards. I was unable to post to my blog in the morning and then went over to see friends almost immediately after work.

    The general message here seems to be very positive. The Ace of Wands suggests opportunity to be grasped and The World hints at success and completion. It is almost as if (pictorially) we zoom out in cinematic style from the hand holding the wand on the Ace, to the dancing figure on The World. My time is now!
