Daily Intuitive Guidance for the Now Age
Each week, as I feel guided, I will feature a deck from my own collection, along with intuitive impressions from the cards at the time of drawing them, a suggested intention for the day and a theme for the week. This week features the Rider-Waite Tarot by Pamela Colman Smith the world's most popular tarot deck, for further study I recommend The Key to the Tarot by Arthur Edward Waite.
What is so special about this deck: "This classic deck has long been a favorite of beginners as well as tarot enthusiasts. Believed to have originated in 14th Century Italy, Tarot is an old trick-capturing card game like Spades or Euchre. The Tarot was adapted by occultists in the 19th Century, transitioning into a popular oracle for fortune tellers of the 20th Century. Rider-Waite Tarot deck was originally printed from plates that were destroyed during the bombing of London during World War II and is associated with the Tudor Rose."
Why I love this deck: This deck has been in my family since it was gifted to my father by a mysterious Romanian gypsy when he was backpacking across Europe. She told him to "keep it" as someone in his family will "one day" need it, he replied her no one in his family had any interest. She giggled as she gave him the deck firmly saying, "not yet there isn't but one day there will be." This was years before my father had even met my mother. It wasn't until I had dragged my father to Chapters to review a book on Wicca at the age of 12 AND showed sustained interest in the Tarot that he decided I was ready to receive the cards, at 16 years old. I was of course happy for the cards, although at that point I had my own as well, the greatest gift was the story of how the cards came to be in my father's care. I will always be grateful for the Divine interventions that pepper my path and the validations the provide.
INTENTION FOR THE WEEK: I AM THE EMBODIMENT OF THE DIVINE FEMININE ON EARTH, I AM THE BRINGER OF SACRED SEXUALITY, I AM FREE TO CHOOSE HOW I SHARE MY LIFE-FORCE AND THIS IS HOW I SERVE THE WHOLE
Intuitive Impressions: Releasing and breakthroughs. Being the Eye of the Storm. A week of transformation by balancing polarity, coming to neutrality and understanding the Truth. It's ok to feel the pain of release... feel into it, realize the pain comes from resistance to what is, grieve, rage, express it all. When we release, what no longer serves will be left behind and we are free to move on and let go of the old. We are already free to Just Be. Happiness is a Choice. Choose Love
INTENTION FOR THE DAY: I AM THE CO-CREATOR OF MY DESTINY, I AM THE AGENT OF CHANGE IN MY UNIVERSE, AS I EMBRACE CHANGE SO DOES THE WORLD AROUND ME
Intuitive Impressions: We are invited to embrace the cyclone of change The Wheel of Fortune can bring, we may be surprised where it takes us. As the wheel turns, the Fates weave our path at our birth. Thus the wheel of fortune is an apt image for the elusive turns of a human's fate. One of the few cards in the major arcana that does not have a human figure as a focal point. This is because its center is above the realm of man - in the higher levels (clouds) where the destinies of all are woven together in the tapestry of life. The tarot recognizes that each person sets his own path in life, but is also subject to the larger cycles that include him. We experience chance events that appear to be accidents although they are part of the great plan. This card can indicate a vision or realization that strikes with great force. Many have been struggling with a problem or tough situation: this card can signal that we will find the answer if we stand back and view everything from a larger perspective. Keywords: unexpected encounters , twists of fate, changes in direction, repeating cycles, rapid movement, life speeding up.
