Walking the Path of the Major Arcana – The Path So Far

This post is a continuation of a month-long challenge hosted on Tarot Rebels. As I can’t commit to daily draws at the moment, I am following along at my own snail’s pace here. The concept of the challenge is to see the ways in which the energies of the Major Arcana are affecting and manifesting in my life at the moment. *

This challenge splits the journey through the Major Arcana into three paths and each path is completed with a final question posed to the entire deck.

First Path Completion – What is your most cherished ritual? What nourishes you the most?

I decided to stick with the format of the previous days and pull two cards, one for each question posed in today’s prompt.

For my most cherished ritual I pulled the Page of Swords, which also happens to be one of my strongest Court personality cards (self-identified, not astrological). The Page of Swords is endlessly curious, a seeker of knowledge and a lover of words, for her, fulfilment comes from learning, exploring deconstructing and reconstructing new concepts, and I often sense a feeling of urgency from this card, that there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to read and understand all that one wants to; all feelings and drives I strongly relate to.

The concept of the challenge is to see the ways in which the energies of the Major Arcana – and the changing seasons – are affecting and manifesting in my life at the moment. *

The High Priestess: What is the deepest truth of wisdom within me

Here I see both the light and dark aspects of the King of Cups. The realm of this high ruler is that of the emotions, and the truth she brings to my inner wisdom is that the world, people and reality we see constitutes but the thinnest veneer of the surface of our universe. Each person contains an ebbing and flowing world within, rich and vibrant Continue reading “Walking the Path of the Major Arcana – The High Priestess”

Four of Cups – The Genius of Dissatisfaction

Look up any keywords for the Four of Cups and you will probably find some variation or combination of apathy, dissatisfaction, taking things for granted, disenchantment, discontent, boredom or detachment. When this card shows up in a tarot spread in a do- more-of-this, advice type of position it can give a moment of pause, where are the positives in these things?

Ecclectic Birthday Reading

Today is my birthday, the big 33 – old and uncool to a teenager and a child to a crone – so I decided to pull a rather random mix of cards for some reflection time and guidance.

First, I went to the Ceccoli tarot for a simple three card draw.

What lesson/s have I learned in the past year?

The Moon – I have learned that there is a whole other universe of energy, mystery, meaning, truth and power both within myself and in the universe. All is not as it seems and I have been sleepwalking for far too long. Continue reading “Ecclectic Birthday Reading”
