Card Of The Week: Sunday August 29 – Saturday September 4, 2004, Tarot of Transformation
5 of Wands — Freeing Your Expression
The card depicts an elf seated on a mushroom, with the sun shining behind her and a swirling pool in front of her. A second elf beside her watches as she tosses colored spheres into the air, which appear to be swept up by the wind or a flow of dynamic energy. A third elf sits in the foreground. There are five mushrooms in the scene, and they are the “wands,” described in the text as illustrating the organic movement of expression in their growth patterns.
For the week of Sunday August 22 thru Saturday August 29, Tarot of Transformation, 0 The Fool: Ignorance or Innocence?
The figure in this card wears a costume reminiscent of a harlequin, and a mask. She or he follows a star, but looks over her shoulder at a smaller figure who appears to be demanding attention.
The mask and costume make me think of how often we misjudge a person based on physical appearance, age, dress. How often we assume someone is older or younger than they are, or make assumptions about what a person’s chronological age means about them. In truth each of us has a child, an adult, and an elder inside us.
Tarot of Transformation. I find these cards particularly healing in their images and messages. It’s almost like having a deck of 78 Major Arcana.
