Here’s another excellent video tutorial by Donnaleigh de LaRose. In it she demonstrates how to read two-card combinations with the Lenormand deck.

It’s a great technique for learning the Lenormand, but it’s also a fabulous exercise for learning two-card combos with the Tarot as well.

Take a look …

King of Wands from Georgie's Tarot

King of Wands

Creative vision, a fiery temperament, inspirational thinking – it could be an exciting day.   You have the capacity to focus your passionate energy into something constructive.

If it’s been difficult to get going with an enterprise that really matters to your soul, this is a great day to clear through the cobwebs. Take your fire and run with it.

But don’t forget to enjoy your strength wisely.  No one likes a tyrant. Get to work on your goal, but don’t assume that everyone else is going to follow your lead. They might be feeling a lot like you are today and are probably looking for some followers themselves.

Moon in Leo – High Priestess in Strength's Clothing

January 26th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

The High Priestess in Strength's Clothing

High Priestess as Strength

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

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.

#20 Judgment from Georgie's Tarot

#20 Judgment

Saturday, January 26, 2013
#20 – Judgment

Most likely, this is an important time.  You’re probably coming to the end of a long phase and are in the process of review.

Judgment might be a heavy word to use, but that’s likely the situation – you’re judging yourself and your progress to date.  How do you rate yourself?  How are you rating others?   Where do you want to go next?

There’s a strong element of resurrection in this energy.  As the phase you’re in comes to a close, you ready yourself for rebirth.  Listen carefully to what your soul is trying to tell you. What have you learned through these last years? What might you want to try again? What might you want to let go of? The big question is how might you be even more alive going forward?

Enjoy this time for what it is, though it might feel confusing and even a little anxiety-ridden. Soon there will be movement. Take a good look at your past, a good look at your present and envision what you want to do next. What do you want your life to be like tomorrow? It’s up to you to make it happen.

Tavern Cards

January 25th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Until I came across this Tavern Cards Kickstarter project, I’d never heard of ‘tavern generators’ before.

After googling the phrase, I discovered that there are a lot of them out there (though not in card form), and that they’re used by people to come up with tavern-based storylines and characters, mostly for gaming.

Hannah Lipsky developed her Tavern Cards for just that purpose, though she mentions that they can also be used as a regular playing card deck.

When I saw them though, my first thought was that they would be great for divination. They’ve got colouful and descriptive imagery, key words, and four suits.

What more would you need for a good reading? They’re almost a Tarot deck, just without any Majors.

Visit Lipsky’s project page to learn more. You might even want to support the deck and get a copy for yourself.

#19 – The Sun

You’ve made it!  Enjoy!  What a good day!  After the long journey you’ve finally managed to get to the other side of the night.

There’s no need to be shy – express yourself and let everyone see you smile.

You have confidence now and boundaries no longer pen you in.  Creativity carries you forward as if in a dream.

Focus your imagination and you can manifest what you will.  Be open, free and alive.

Let’s see you shine!

A Feast Fit for the Queen of Wands

January 24th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Queen of Wands from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot

If the Queen of Wands were preparing a banquet, what would she make and how would it look?

Given her mastery of fire, I imagine that whatever she prepared, it would have some spice, be orangey in colour, and that red wine would be involved.

In fact, I think it would look exactly like the Spaghetti Bottarga feast in the video below directed by Kim Gehrig for Nowness, called Margo Henderson: Burning Bush.

Yum. That looks delicious.

Moon in Cancer – High Priestess Dressed as the Charioteer

The High Priestess dressed as the Chariot

High Priestess as the Chariot

The Moon moves into Cancer today, and stays there until Saturday.

Looking at this transit through the lens of the Tarot, you might describe it as the High Priestess dressed in the clothing of the Charioteer. She’s left the safety of her pillars and veil, and has hit the road.

The Moon in Cancer, or the High Priestess dressed as the Charioteer, can be a powerful time of comfortable change and emotional resilience.

Knowledge gathered in silence has coalesced and it’s time to share without fear of being hurt.

Emotional loyalty, intuitive direction and strength of character can give you the resolve to go forward. Even into the unknown.

Try not to coddle yourself. You can only win if you have the courage to play to the end.

#6 The Lovers from Georgie's Tarot

#6 The Lovers

Thursday, January 24, 2013
#6 – The Lovers

Are there choices to be made?  Decisions you’ve put off for another time?  Well this is the time.  The Lovers card asks us to finally make up our minds – either commit or get out now.

On a personal level, the Lovers reminds us to balance the opposites within ourselves.  Are your ying and yang in sync?  Does your conscious experience compliment your unconscious dream state or do they seem at war?  Are you living a life that satisfies your soul?

Heavy questions, but this is a great day to think about them.  In fact, you might find it difficult not to.

This is a serious commitment you’re thinking about.  To help you make up your mind, ask yourself which direction brings you closer to your soul’s call. You probably already know the answer.
