Hello, I have been quite sick recently, haven’t been ale to shake off whatever is plaguing my sinuses and my throat. I haven’t done much tarot reading nor any other kind of -mancy, but I have been doing a lot of thinking. I decided to stop around here and share a couple thoughts that have been on my mind as of late.
Firstly I want to share the few daily readings I have done lately.
Both are barometers for gauging my energy, where I need to pay attention and work on. Obviously, I feel I need to get a move on with certain aspects in my life, these dailies confirm this. My body has been feeling sick so I have let quite a few things slide, including my studies and also my spiritual practice, I need to keep these things in check and maintain my self continuously aware of them.
Secondly, I have added two new decks to my collection, one of which was gifted to me, The Crystal Tarot and the Wooden Tarot. Both are lovely, and I have been somewhat playing around frequently with The Wooden Tarot. Given that I haven’t done much reading my time spent with these decks has been limited but I certainly want to spend more time getting to know them, especially The Crystal Tarot, which feels for me like a different spin on the typical RWS tarot pip structure.
The major difference, that caught my attention when I first heard about the deck, was that the sword suit is associated with water and the cups suit with air. This piqued my curiosity because I am an air sign associated with the sword suit. In this deck,
I am still associated with swords but not the air sign. I am not sure what to make of this, I found some esoteric writings by a Spanish author of long ago that spoke about this deck tradition, and it’s meanings. A deck that follows these same associations is “El Gran Tarot Esotérico”, and the Spanish author I was referring to is Eudes Picard. I found more info on this tradition here. I plan on doing some more research but for now I will use the deck intuitively. All in all it is an enchanting deck, vivid and colorful.
I wanted to share a few of my spiritual inspirations, which I have found in my readings but, my baby has just woken up and I must continue with my day, I will be back shortly…
