Tradition has no purpose in today’s world, right? Well not according to this Tarot card. The Patriarch, or Hierophant, is all about tradition and indirectly community. In readings, he reminds us to look at those places in our lives where tradition is positive and can help us along the way.
Energy is the foundation of the universe. Which is awesome. The Eight of Staffs (or Wands) invites us can mean an abundance of good energy in our life, but thinking on a deeper level this Tarot card calls us to think about energy at all levels. Where are you putting your energy?
Strength is all about being tough and the aggressor, right? The Strength, or Fortitude, card in the Tarot might disagree, at least at times. Strength can show up in many different ways, and this card allows up to explore that.
We are all on a journey, but what does a journey really look like. The tarot card Six of Swords reminds us that journeys are wonderful, but also hard.
The Tarot card Four of Swords, is a man lying down with swords and light above him. This is very indicative on the meaning of this card, which is about rest, and self-care.
Pentacle cards are all about the physical world and often about money. The King of Pentacles displays this quite well. He is a man with lots of worth. However, he doesn’t hoard his money he is generous with all he has. How does this tarot card reflect how we engage with money today, that’s the big question.
The Five of Staffs give me/us a reminder that tarot is more than just one definition. It’s about intuition and placement.
The Fool is the first card in the Tarot deck. It is, usually, a young man about ready to walk off a cliff because he’s too busy looking at the sky. Very foolish. However, sometime we all need that in our life, and he’s there to remind us of that.
Getting into Tarot can be a journey for people, at least it was for me. Here I describe the process and why I use it as a tool today.
