NWTS_Poster_2015_WEB

It’s not until next year, but it’s definitely something to start thinking about now – the North West Tarot Symposium (NWTS).

This brand new Tarot conference will hold its first gathering in Portland, Oregon from March 6th to 8th, 2015 and the focus will be on cartomancy in general – Tarot, Oracle, and Lenormand.

It sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun with 30 workshops to choose from, art exhibits, vendors, performance, and a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other card enthusiasts.

Check out the NWTS website to learn more about the symposium, and the Early Bird Registration discounts. And if you’re interested in being a vendor, and/or a presenter, they’re taking submissions now.

#2 – The High Priestess

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.

Moon in Aries – High Priestess in the Emperor's Clothing

March 30th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

High Priestess dressed as the Emperor

The Moon moves into Aries today and will stay there until Tuesday.

Translating this transit into Tarot cards, it would be like the High Priestess is wearing the Emperor’s clothing. She’s in scarlet and armor and is ready for battle.

The Moon in Aries, or High Priestess in the clothing of the Emperor, is a time of intensified emotions. You might feel an increased desire to shape your own world.

Rather than sitting back in stillness, this transit encourages the loosening of emotional restrictions and the conscious expression of enthusiasm and/or passion.

It might be uncomfortable at first, but allow yourself to speak out loud. Take steps forward to let people know what you know and what you love.

Try to remain objective and open-minded while acting with determination and direction. It might sound impossible, but you can do both if you try.

Were you thinking of starting something new? This is the time to do it. The energy of The Magician encourages you to start fresh.

Look around – I bet you have all the tools you need for this new enterprise. It’s only up to you to start making things happen.

Name your goal and start listing the steps you need to get there. Especially important is that first step. It can be big or small – just take it! You’re at the very beginning right now, don’t let the long journey ahead dissuade you from going forward.

You can’t go back, so what the heck? Focus on what it is you want to achieve and you can make anything happen.

Beware though, don’t try fooling yourself or others, there’s no need for deception. It will only lead you down the wrong road right from the start. Stay true to your plan and keep yourself focused.

You can do what you need to without resorting to trickery or lies. It’ll work out much better in the long run if you stick to the truth.

#0 – The Fool

He was already here on Tuesday, but the Fool’s back!! …

This is a great day to take the leap and do something different.  It might seem crazy and you have no idea how it’s going to turn out, or maybe even how you got on this path in the first place, but here you are.  It’s time to make your move and do so without fear.

The Fool card isn’t telling you to be an idiot, but rather to stop double thinking yourself all the time and worrying that every single thing is in order before you can make a move.

Life isn’t really that logical.  There’s no way to prepare for all eventualities, no matter how smart you are.  Do what you can and let the universe take care of the bigger story.

Moon in Pisces – High Priestess in the Moon's Clothing

March 28th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

High Priestess dressed in the moon's clothing

The Moon moves into Pisces today and stays there until Sunday.

Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Moon. She’s lost her material body and has disappeared into the celestial body that usually rests at her feet.

The Moon in Pisces, or High Priestess dressed as the Moon, is a time of increased perception, ill-defined understanding and what might be described as night vision.

During this time you could find your dreams feel more real than your daylight hours and what’s not said is louder than what is.

Fears might grow like a boogieman under the bed, but if you just take a peek, they’re as likely to be dust bunnies as demons or ghosts.

Be still, aware and fearless. It might be dark outside, but if there was ever a time you can navigate the unknown, this is it. Listen, breathe, flow.

You might find yourself wanting to spend some time alone today. It’s probably a good idea. Take time to look within and see what’s up inside your soul.

Have things been moving pretty fast lately? Don’t worry, it’s finally going to slow down a bit, giving you a moment to clean house and tie up loose ends.

Trust your own experience through this period. It’s through an examination of your own personal journey that you’ll discover your inner wisdom. You probably know a lot more then you give yourself credit for. But you might need some silence to notice.

Give yourself permission to be quiet. You won’t be missing anything by taking a break. It’ll only make things more fun when you finally re-emerge from your cave.

Symbology: an A to Z of Archetypes and Epiphanies

March 27th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

I know I just posted a Kickstarter project the other day, but here’s another one, this time by Annie Davies, curator of The Collective Tarot.

Though it’s not another Tarot project, it is occult oriented and involves pictures. It’s Symbology: an A to Z of Archetypes and Epiphanies.

Symbology is what Davies describes as a ‘largeish minicomic’, a 32 page black and white book gathering together esoteric symbols based on each letter of the alphabet.

I love the idea, and the artwork. And the video below where Davies displays the various rewards you can get for donating is fabulous. Take a look!

Clear rational thinking is at the fore today.  Is there something you need to take control of?  Have you been wavering and wishy-washy lately?  Stop procrastinating.

Focus, take charge and get it done.   Have the courage to be clear and rational.  Cut through the fog and let logic rule the day.

You know who you are, you know what you want and you’re sure you deserve it.   Go to it.  But beware of dictating what’s best for those around you.

You might know how to take care of yourself, but let others take care of their own lives, their own way.
