These pages contain my thoughts on the meaning and messages of tarot cards that I have drawn for myself. Some of this will be based on traditional interpretations of each card however my intention is to provide more intuitive offerings that are particular to my own life and circumstances at the time.

Sometimes, however, one cannot always see the forest for the trees so I welcome and appreciate comments with any further insights others may like to extend.

Thank you for your visit here; may you find something that resonates within your soul amongst these humble writings. Blessed be.

Card of the Day for Saturday 2 October - III of Wands

Regathering ones thoughts. Quiet reflection on the progress so far to refocus on the end goal before needing to pick up the battle tools and get stuck back into the hard work.

Hmmm, this is not what I am feeling within in me will be helpful right now. I keep getting all of these cards about rest and waiting and not overloading myself but what I really want is to feel inspired and to get passionate about things again. I feel like I have been resting forever now and all it is doing for me now is making me more tired.

That said, in the last few days I have come across something that created a click in terms of what I have been feeling and experiencing and if it is right then I have a lot more work today internally before I am ready to re-emerge into the active world. This is not an uncommon phenomenon and I don't understand how people are meant to get through their day to day lives while experiencing it but it does seem to fit on so many levels and could also be what all these 'take it easy' cards are talking about.

Card of the Day for Friday 1 October - X of Wands

A card about the pressure of the physical demands of life, feeling overwhelmed by all tha is before you and a need to reassess the tasks that are becoming burdens.

Hoe much can I eliminate before I have a manageable workload? Is is possible for me to ever feel truly on top of things? As the song goes, "my back is strong, but it's a-hurting".

Card of the Day for Thursday 30 September - Ace of Wands

With Wands being the suit of energy and action and Aces representing new beginnings, the Ace of Wands talks of new projects and taking action on things to get the ball rolling on a new venture.

Sometimes these are things that have been in the planning stage for some time, sometimes they appear out of the blue as a new offer or proposal from an unexpected source or situation. Typically the appearance of the Ace of Wands is a good omen indicating the current energy is favourable to starting new ventures.

The Ace of Wands can also a calling card - it tells you that the time is come for you to take charge of something and it calls you to action. It is saying that you have been in different phases but now you need to do something, anything, and it encourages you to take that action now, today, without further procrastination or delay.

Card of the Day for Wednesday 29 September - IV of Swords

My mind is driving me crazy and this card is telling me to let it rest. Lay amongst the stars and dream but don't take on too much either physically or mentally. There is much to do and the world is made up of infinite possibilities but each journey starts with a dream and not is the time to take off the battle armour, know that I am safe and just allow myself to connect with my subconscious to prepare myself for the next leg of my journey, which is coming soon.

Life is there for the taking and the sun guarantees abundance and prosperity for those who will reach out and grasp it with both hands.

Card of the Day for Monday 27 September - Knight of Swords

The simplest message of this card is so powerful for me today. Knights speak of action, of rolling their sleeves up and just getting out there and doing things. Swords relate to the realm of thought. Of plans and strategies, of intellect and mental processes.

Where these two aspects combine in the Knight of Swords, the message for me is to take action on my plans. Planning is important but there comes a time to put the plans aside and start to make physical progress on what you have been planning out.

This will make for a busy day for me for sure and I have felt that energy with me since I started the day. I'm really looking forward to reflecting back on an active, productive and purposeful day.

Card of the Day for Sunday 26 September - Queen of Cups

Queens for me are all about feelings and cups are about emotions so the Queen of Cups gives us a double whammy in this department. Sometimes this can be about an intensity of emotions and feelings, sometimes it can be able taking control of your emotions as would be befitting of a queen while still allowing yourself to acknowledge what you are feeling.

For me today, this is about the process of actually giving myself to really feel my emotions. To go within myself and perhaps revisit old wounds for the purpose of allowing myself to feel them in a safe and productive way, where I will be able to explore them, learn my lessons and move on in the present as a stronger and more experienced person for all that I have felt.
