Generosity Isn't Always Given, Sometimes It's Received

Today”s card is the 6 of Pentacles reversed.  It”s a card about generosity – and reversed it can signify a need to accept generosity from others, and from ourselves, without judgement.  And not just generosity in the material sense,

Poppers for the Weekend

When I started asking what I need to consider over the weekend, I asked for 3 cards.  As I shuffled, one popped out – the Queen of Pentacles (a card that represents me most often).  Then I shuffled further and another popped out – Temperance reversed.  I asked for just one more card, and very […]

2 of Cups: Relationships with Ourselves

Most of the time when the 2 of Cups shows up, we think about love relationships and partnerships with other people.В  But, yesterday when I drew it reversed in conjunction with the New Moon, I saw it as an indicator of

The Knight of Swords

Now this is a guy I could fall in love with!  He’s smart, charismatic, sexually exhilarating, witty and attentive.  He knows his stuff, and is willing to stand up for that which he passionately believes.  He has little fear because

Ace of Wands for the Weekend

When I pulled my card for the weekend, I was surprised to find that it is one of the cards I pulled for the New Moon phase.  Surprised and pleased. I started this cycle with the Ace of Wands and The Magician.  These cards together tell me that I have

Fiery, Intuitive Woman

The moon has moved to the Disseminating phase.  Sharing information, abilities, the self, resources, etc.  The card I’ve drawn for this phase is the Queen of Wands.  She’s a fiery, creative and intuitive woman.  She can also be quite introspective and quietly strong.  This is the card my tarot friends tell me they associate with […]

It's Time to Take Action!

On this rainy, stormy Monday here in the Southeast, we start a new moon phase.  This one is the First Quarter.  During this phase, it’s time to take action.  Start making moves toward the goals.  Interestingly enough, my card for today was the 8 of Cups – a card all about action.

Major and Minor Leadership

On this last day of the New Moon phase, my card pairing is the King of Swords (on the left) and The Emperor (on the Right).  These two cards are very, very much alike.  Both men face us directly, though their eyes are turned slightly to the West.  Each holds something in their right hand […]

A Marriage Made in Heaven? Maybe.

My card pairing for today is the Queen of Cups and The Emperor, the Queen being my card for the day (on the left), and the Emperor being the card for the New Moon phase (on the right). What first strikes me about these two is the isolation.
