Tarot’s Ace of Wands often reflects the seed of inspiration, that first spark that gets us motivated to do something new, or to do something old in a new way.

In the video below by Blnd, they don’t mention the Ace of Wands, but they do describe the ‘carrot’ as something that gets us moving. And really, doesn’t a carrot look an awful lot like an Ace of Wands, just upside down and in vegetable form? At least I think so.

Take a look at The Ultimate Guide to Inspiration, and maybe chase on after a carrot sometime today…

The Nature video below isn’t about Tarot, but it is about one of this Tarot reader’s favourite companions … the cat.

Take a look at some feline history to see why humans (including the Queen of Wands) grew to be so close with these furry friends → Cat Domestication: From Farm to Sofas

It’s not about Tarot, but it is great (or at least interesting) advice for artists and creators of all sorts.

The Universe is Big

April 27th, 2017 § Comments Off on The Universe is Big § permalink

The Universe is incredible.  And so massively large, it’s almost (if not completely) impossible to truly conceive of how big it really is.

From a Tarot perspective, I think the Thoth Universe card is one of the more beautiful and evocative images describing the expanse of life/space beyond humans.

But perhaps a more direct perspective on the size of the Universe relative to us, can be found in Yukai Du‘s short video, How Small Are We in the Scale of the Universe?

Short answer: Small. Very very small.

How To Be Confident

April 1st, 2017 § Comments Off on How To Be Confident § permalink

This video, from the School of Life, reminds us that confidence isn’t about finding some plateau of perfection where we can sit forever, dignified and unmockable. Rather, it’s a willingness to leap into the unknown, even with the knowledge that we might end up landing on our butts.

Don’t fear being a Fool! Embrace the opportunity to try something new, even if we mess up. There’s no way of knowing what wonderful places our blunders might lead us.

Take a look at How to Be Confident … and have a happy April Fool’s!

Will Winning The Lottery Make You Happy?

February 20th, 2017 § Comments Off on Will Winning The Lottery Make You Happy? § permalink

The Wheel of Fortune can spin us into all sorts of new opportunities, but it’s really our personal dispositions, levels of generosity, and willingness to adapt and engage in new experiences that actually determine how happy we’re likely to be.

Take a look at this interesting TED-Ed video by Allen Laseter called Will Winning The Lottery Make You Happy?

Personally, I’d be willing to give it a try.
