Furla Makes Tarot Chic

Ace of Cups from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot

Tarot and fashion meet again – this time in handbags. The Italian fashion company Furla has just introduced a new line of handbags inspired by imagery from the Tarot.

From what I can see, the Ace of Cups is the featured pattern, but there are also designs that involve the Moon, and a Knight.

The designs aren’t from any deck I recognize, but they’re sweet.

The Ace is made up of three houses that look like little bird-houses, and there’s lots of roses all around them.

The knight doesn’t seem to have a particular suit but he’s standing atop an orange tiger-like creature so I’ll call him the Knight of Wands.

Only the Moon appears traditional, and I only saw it in one design that also included what looked to be astrological imagery.

The bags don’t come cheap, ranging from €40 to €245. But with all those Aces of Cups, I can hardly resist.

What could be better than carrying around a stylish bag of new love?

Moon in Leo – High Priestess in Strength’s Clothing

The High Priestess in Strength's Clothing

High Priestess as Strength

The Moon moves into Leo today and stays there until Friday.

Translated into Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is wearing Strength’s clothing. She’s thrown off her heavy cape and is spending some time outside with her lion.

The Moon in Leo, or High Priestess in Strength’s clothing is potentially a time of emotional power. Something beautiful that’s usually under wraps can finally be revealed.

The silence is broken. Quiet wisdom and passion can be united. During this time, it might be difficult to keep your ideas to yourself. But why should you?

Try finding an outlet for plans you’ve been sitting on? This is an opportunity to shine if you’re not over-burdened by self-consciousness.

It might feel a little uncomfortable at first, but letting your wilder side out right now could be positive. The sun isn’t always shining. Take advantage of it when it does.

Ten of Cups from Georgie's Tarot

10 of Cups

You feel full up with all the love around you.  In fact, you might even be a little overwhelmed with how much you care and how loved you feel.

This is a happy time to be with your family or friends or whoever it is that makes up your social community.

You’re probably nearing the end of an important emotional phase.  Taking the time now to recognize and be grateful for all you have will help prepare you for the beginning of the next stage of your journey.

Celebrate with your loved ones, remembering with joy and humour all the good and not so good days that brought you to where you are now.
