Two of Swords


Mar 27, 2015
Two of Swords

Tower


Mar 26, 2015
Tower

The Tower of Stale, outmoded belief is toppled by the Dragon of repressed natural instincts. The falling figures represent the plunge into confusion that comes with the shattering of long-held convictions. They also reflect Adam and Eve, cast out of Eden into the mortal world, having for the first time to feed and clothe themselves, or children being cast out of the home.
Without warning the old order breaks down and chaos breaks loose. Upheaval, betrayal, and failure all threaten to shake your self-belief. This is a common card for people facing the challenges of mid-life, although love can create similar havoc at any age, as can politics, war, and business. Such revolutions always lead to clearer understanding in the long term, however.

Moon


Mar 24, 2015
Moon

The Moon of inspiration rises over the gateway to the unconscious while dragons serenade it and the crab or crayfish of Cancer hesitates, scared of leaving it's natural medium. This card suggests the need to shake off convention and follow your instincts and intuitions.

You need to be guided by intuition and feelings when making this choice, but at the same time there is a real danger of delusion, of being misled by wishful thinking, or by someone whose judgement you trust. Times like this are true tests of character and your grasp on reality.

Reversed High Priestess


Mar 23, 2015
Reversed High Priestess

The High Priestess is often equated to the Moon, or the veiled Isis, sister and wife of Osiris in ancient Egyptian myth. The book from which she is reading contains all the mysteries of both life and death, which she guards and shares with her initiates. Although a good teacher, she is also a slightly remote, self-contained figure who usually requires the help of more practical spirits to make her insights function in reality.
Reversed, the card stands for shallowness, delusion, and selfishness - the tendency to assume that one is always right. despite contrary evidence. Poor judgement follows from a gullible acceptance of wishful occult thinking.

Reversed Devil


Mar 21, 2015
Reversed Devil

Like the Death and Hanged Man cards, to the uninitiated the Devil is far less ominous than he first appears. However, his arrival in a reading does warn of the very real danger of being lead astray by false lights, empty promises, or shallow pleasures. Enslavement of one sort or another is threatened by the Devil, who often comes in the most seductive guises, but you can choose how you respond to his advances.
The reversed card signifies the end of an ill-starred period of delusion, when it's time to crawl from the ruins and begin again. there is still some danger, but if you listen to the promptings of the angel on one shoulder and ignore the devil on the other, you can find renewal.

Reversed World


Mar 20, 2015
Reversed World

As the last card of the Major Arcana, the World signifies the achievement of ambitions, and success in the eyes of others. the Wyrm Ouroboros encircles the world to show the endless self-renewal of nature, flanked by the dragons of the four Minor Arcana suits; Air (Swords), Water (Cups), Fire (Wands), and Earth (Pentacles).
The World in reversed position warns of disappointment, a lack of imagination, and failure to carry projects right through to the end. Much more perseverance, determination, and imagination are now needed if you hope to realize any of your dreams.

Hierophant


Mar 19, 2015
Hierophant

The Hierophant represents a leader of established religion. He is the natural counterpart of The High Priestess, but he has formal and even political power that often blinds him to the spiritual values he guards. While often providing real community comfort to his followers, obsession with history and tradition often blinds him to new spiritual developments.
Providing comfort, security, the wisdom of the ages, and generosity in others' time of need are among the many virtues of the Hierophant that make him someone to turn to in troubled times. But inflexibility - a lack of openness to change - can often negate these virtues. Too great a reverence for the past can become hostility toward all change, and the Hierophant symbolizes an obstacle to growth. He can also indicate marriage or other lasting union.

Fool

The Fool represents the wild optimism of youth, rushing into adventures with no thought for the consequences.
