Queen of Swords from Georgie's Deck

The truth is an important commodity right now.  Getting through the fog and cutting out that which no longer works is a priority.

You might be feeling a little hardcore, a little less sympathetic to sob stories and other tales of woe than usual.  That’s all right.  Sometimes it’s more important to be clear than to be sweet.

Get the job done and do it with the determination, diligence and discernment that you expect from others.

Keep in mind though that the bigger picture includes compassion.  You need not be cruel or mean to be truthful and serious.

Not everyone is as tough-skinned as you are right now, so be aware of the potential effect your words might have.

The 9 of Pentacles on a Wall

9 of Pentacles from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot

I came across this gorgeous graffiti image of a woman surrounded by nine flowers and a bird flying beside her.

Can you blame me for thinking of the 9 of Pentacles when I saw it?

It looks like I’ve found the newest addition to my Graffiti Tarot.

Moon in Taurus – High Priestess in the Hierophant's Clothing

The High Priestess dressed as the Hierophant

High Priestess in Hierophant’s Clothes

The Moon moves into Taurus today and stays there until Wednesday.

If you look at this transit through the eyes of the Tarot, it would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Hierophant. She’s sitting before two acolytes and sharing the secrets she usually guards.

The Moon in Taurus, or High Priestess in the Hierophant’s clothes, is a time of spiritual and emotional certitude.

There’s a sense that the truth can be explained, understood and incorporated into daily life. Rules can and should be followed.

Instead of trying to force others to recognize what you know to be certain, try using this time to simply share your emotional, intellectual and spiritual perceptions.

Celebrate the diversity of spirit in our world, while figuring out for yourself what rules, spiritual or otherwise, work best for you.

Ace of Cups from Georgie's Tarot

Ace of Cups

It must be a weekend of emotional renewal because I pulled the Ace of Cups again! Enjoy!! …

Emotional renewal is the name of the game today.  A new way of feeling about something and/or somebody is about to emerge.  Perhaps you’re feeling it already – it’s like that first hint of spring or when a magnolia tree finally blossoms after a long cold winter.

Joy and hope are in the air and accessible to you.  Throw away any gloom you’ve been dragging around and wake up to the inspiration of postive emotions.  There’s a sense that anything can happen and it’s probably going to be good. Be receptive to the love that’s around you and give it back in kind.

Tarot Chic

November 24th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

I just love it when Tarot inspires fashion! Take a look at the video below of the Luck Winter 2013 Fashion Space by Marcio Madeira.

The whole collection is beautiful and worth seeing, but the Tarot designs start appearing at about the 4:00 minute mark, with more further in at about 6:00 minutes and beyond.

I’d just love to have some of these dresses. Lady Frieda Harris’ images from the Thoth Tarot have never looked so chic.

#3 The Empress from Georgie's Tarot

#3 – The Empress

Creation and the celebration of the senses are highlighted today.  Art, food, music – anything that inspires our physical and emotional selves will inspire you and be well worth the time.

Nurture yourself and others.  It’ll probably be hard not to.  Nurturance isn’t just a luxury.  You need to maintain and even increase your strength in order to create what you’ve been working on. Eat delicious, healthy foods, surround yourself with beauty, take warm, aromatic baths . . . it’s all part of the Empress’ path to creation.

If you’ve been dealing with issues surrounding motherhood, women, or femininity in general, this would be a great day to take a closer look.  There’s wonderful energy now to help you resolve issues you might have thought irresolvable.

When Not to Use Tarot

November 23rd, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Tarot is simply fabulous, and as any reader of this blog is well aware, I use it on a pretty well daily basis.

I know though, that there are times when it’s best to keep the cards wrapped up and tucked away, and topics that don’t really need to be explored.

In Jeanne Fiorini’s video below called How To Know When It’s Time to Put the Tarot Cards Aside, she offers some excellent advice on this very subject.

Take a look, and visit Fiorini’s YouTube page for more great tips on Tarot.

9 of Disks

You’ve worked hard for your keep, with discipline and perseverance.  Physically, some important goals are finally being achieved. 

You’re moving towards a place where you feel more at ease, towards a practical stability.   The fruits of your labour can now be recognized and finally enjoyed.

Take some time today to quietly congratulate yourself. You’ve worked hard and deserve what you’ve received.  Though the road hasn’t always been easy, developing patience and inner strength will prove well worth it.

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

November 23rd, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

High Priestess dressed as the Emperor

High Priestess dressed as Emperor

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

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.
