European Tarot Tour

August 31st, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

I’ve posted videos of Niki de Saint Phalle’s fabulous Tarot Garden in Tuscany, Italy before, but the one below by Linda Marson of is the best I’ve seen yet.

She’s beautifully captured each of the Major Arcana statues found in the garden, one by one. I’ve never seen them all so clearly before.

More than ever, it makes me want to see them in person myself!

And maybe I can – and you can too! The Tarot Garden is one of the many stops on the Spring 2015 Tarot Art and History Tour organized by Arnell Ando.

The tour will visit Tarot landmarks throughout Italy, including a private viewing of the original Visconti/Sforza cards from the mid-1400s. What fun!

Stop by the Tarot Tour page to learn more, and watch Linda Marson’s video below to take a lovely tour of the Tarot Garden.

He was just here last Saturday, but the Page of Disks is back …

It’s time to get down to the details.  A new project is in the works and you’ve got the task of making it happen – or at least starting the process off.

Keep the reason you’re doing it in mind – that’s the fire that drives the whole enterprise.

If the less than exciting details are getting you down, remember that it’s the details that build the foundation to any project.

Don’t be afraid to sludge and trudge on through.  It’ll be worth it in the end.

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 Sunday.

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.

Relax, stay calm and maybe even sleep on it.  There’s been a lot on your mind lately, and some of it has been quite heavy.  You need to slow down and reconnect with yourself.

Meditate on the changes you want in your life.   Figure out where your strengths lie and take that route to your goal.  It wouldn’t hurt to even reconsider the goal.  Are you sure you still want it?

And don’t forget your spirit.  Without it, the mental world can be pretty bleak.  Trust your dreams and keep in touch with your soul.  Make a truce with yourself – life isn’t always a battle.

A new sense of self and perspective on the world are available.  But you have to be quiet and still to find them.  Take today to figure it out.  You’ll be stronger in the long run.

Caravan of See'ers …

August 29th, 2013 § 2 comments § permalink

All playing cards can be used for divining, but Jennifer Kast has gone ahead and designed a playing card deck meant especially for just that.

She’s created the Caravan of See’ers Fortune Telling Playing Cards, two different decks, a Blue one and a Red one.

On the Novice-Blue Deck, she’s written the oracular meanings right on the cards, while just the key word meanings have been inscribed on her Intuitive-Red Deck.

Shadow-like images on the cards also tell a story, one that’s upright, and one that’s reversed.

Both decks, of course, can be used for all of your regular card gaming needs. The only difference is that these cards are a little more overtly oracular than most.

Take a look at the video below to see images of the Red Deck. And visit her Kickstarter project page to learn more about both.

Charge forward with strength and vitality.  This is a day of power, passion and growing energy. Your plan is in place and now’s the time to take it to the next step.  Use your internal fire to take you where you’re tying to go.

You don’t need to wait till everything’s perfect to start moving.  In fact, more often than not, things don’t start falling where they should until you start shifting them up and get some excitement going.  Take a chance that you know what you’re doing and act on it.  Believe in yourself and don’t be shy.

Mars in Leo – The Tower Strikes Strength

Mars in Leo, Tower as Strength

Tower Strikes Strength

Mars moves into Leo today and will be there until October 15th.

Looking at this transit from a Tarot perspective, it would be like the Tower is tumbling around Strength and her lion.

Mars in Leo, or the Tower falling around the Strength’s feet can be a time chaos contained.

Tempers might flare as unexpected situations arise, but you have the power to deal with pretty well anything that comes up. Just believe it and keep going.

See if you can harness the high energy to really make a difference, positively shaking up your life to get it more in line with your spirit.

Don’t fear change, embrace it and see how strong you really are.

Queen of Cups from Georgie's Tarot

Queen of Cups

The energy today is full of nurturance and love.  Let yourself give and receive.  Share your feelings, your dreams and what it is that makes you human.  Let your imagination run away with you (while holding on to reality if you can).

The Queen of Cups loves romance and laughter and beauty in all its forms.  Take a leap into your emotional depths.  Don’t be afraid, you won’t stay under too long.  This Queen understands emotional limits – how to push them and how to pull them back gently without hurting anyone’s feelings.

Today would be a great day to enjoy the company of loved ones. Or call or write them – one way or another, be sure they know you care.

Moon in Gemini – High Priestess Dressed as the Lovers' Angel

high priestess as the lovers' angel

High Priestess as the Lovers’ Angel

The Moon moves into Gemini today and will stay there until Friday.

From a Tarot perspective, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Lovers’ Angel. She floats above the naked couple, blessing their sacred union.

The Moon in Gemini, or High Priestess dressed as the Lovers’ angel, can be an emotionally confusing time, one where internal conflicts arise in order to be reconciled.

But it can also be a time of clarity, honest communication and almost intuitive understanding about yourself and those around you.

Quiet faith teams up with commitment and the Angels approve of the whole thing.

Try to keep your emotions in line with your reason. Going too far either way could disturb a really nice balance.

#2 – The High Priestess

She was just here on Friday, but she’s back! …

This is a good day to give your spirit some serious attention.  Take a little time by yourself to think about what it is that you believe.  What do you think of the world and your place in it?  What ultimately gives your life meaning?

It’s also a good time right now to pay attention to the messages other people have been sending you.   Let yourself absorb the world around you without feeling the need to jump in right away and take action.  This is a better time to sit and receive than to act.

Observe, listen and think about what it is you’re doing.  Through reflection you’ll start to see all sides.  Through this wider perspective you’ll find the priorities and direction that can help you on your path.
