Your Tarot cards are your best friend, for life. They always tell you the truth, no matter what you want to hear. They tell you how you are doing in life, without criticism or flattery. They tell you what the boyfriend is up to, and with whom; they tell you which of your friends are true and which are just for now. The Tarot is you bosom buddy, your guardian angel, the cards of your conscience, and your guiding star.
Frequently we reach for the Tarot while in the grip of strong emotion, or mental anguish, or just under the influence of a mellow buzz.
The fact that we are strongly cautioned not to touch it while we are anything but calm and clear doesn't change our intent or behavior; the human heart is a divine puzzle.
To this end, I propose greater clarity, insight, and grace under fire.
We can make better sense of the cards, while in emotional or agitated states; we just have to know where to look and how to see what we are looking for. In the Tarot, we can access a great deal of symbolism and meaning that is hidden in plain sight. It's the nature of the cards!
There are many layers of meaning in each Tarot card; over time, we have come to concentrate on just one of the means, or just assume automatically that we know what it means. So when the Tarot wants to say something new and different with the same card, we become confused, and frustrated if it's an emergency consultation.
Add alcohol, a broken heart, torn friendship, wounded pride, and we have Confusion! This breath of the Divine word which we can hold in our hand does have answers. The Tarot is a Divine tool, a means of getting answers beyond our scope; these answers are in plain sight, but are so presented, or we are so cluttered, we don't make sense of them.
First, put aside your favorite deck, as we want all our senses to be open and alert.
It is necessary to invest in the Rider Waite Tarot deck; you can find these for about $10 in used book stores, on ebay, and at Amazon. Most people, especially those who have been reading for a while, dismiss this deck; it's medieval, reinforces a a patriarchal mindset, has a strong Christian bias, is awkward in the hand, and we are too used to it.
This is also the original deck of choice of the Golden Dawn, conceptualized by Arthur Waite, channelled and executed by Pamela Coleman Smith, and published by the Rider company of London, which has all the symbols, mnemonic devices, and images most easily identifiable. In other words, this deck has the keys.
On my pages, I have presented them, card by card, with the keys annotated, so you can't miss them.
They will make much more sense!
Our other decks are great, especially the ones that feature cats... but we want clarity, insight, and inspiration.
And let's not be tacky enough to bring up Crowley... he drank the blood of a black cat that he had sacrificed to some dopey devil, and came down with hepatitis. His assistant died of it. Served them right!!!
When you need greater clarity, insight, and especially grace under fire, click through my pages in my Tarotbook for your cards keys. The hidden keys are all there made plain to help you make good sense of Tarot!
This is my favorite picture of my favorite kitty, Licorice.
Now about your objections to the Rider Waite Deck, here is Wisdom; as far as being medieval, nonsense! The Rider Waite Deck is entirely Renaissance, which marked the flowering of classical culture into a modern minset.
Friday 24 May 2013
This morning we hear the clarion call of Orion the Hunter as the sun comes up. He was killed by Scorpio, sent by the earth for killing too many of her animals. The individual names for these stars indicate the nature of the constellation is one of The Coming Branch, Hastily, and The Treading Underfoot. Those people and relationships born under these stars are constant in affections and tenacious, with strong likes and dislikes. The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens.
The daily lights, calculated from real time at sunrise on the Pacific coast for Friday 24 May 2013
Todays full moon in Scorpio is called the Flower Moon; I call it doom and bloom, for obvious reasons. Be extra careful of the private parts, and the throat.
If we are alert and vigilant this Friday, holiday morning, we will notice a huge increase in the number of accidents, and of 'accidents'. If we are slouching we will be involved in them!
May of us will convert this experience to the positive; by 454PM Pacific, 854PM eastern time, we will speak serious words of healing, kindness, and friendship; some of us will find forever romance!
The moon comes full at 925PM Pacific, 1225AM Saturday morning eastern time. It has long been noted that the May full moon must be handled carefully and wisely; let us too be wise and focus on the best, the most glorious and the least selfish now!
You can receive heavens plan for the day right in your own inbox!! Know The Plan for tomorrow by 9PM Pacific time tonight.
