Yesterday the Four of Wands came up in a reading with the Crystal Tarot. Later the King of Wands appeared in a separate reading with the same deck. Both cards have lions in their images.
Many people associate either IV The Emperor or 4 of Wands with the Vernal Equinox, because of those cards’ associations with the astrological sign Aries. But to me no card epitomizes the advent of Spring more than the Empress, in particular III The Empress as depicted by Lady Frieda Harris.
Tarot of Transformation, 8 Balance. This card is a reminder that we are observed, or that what we do is somehow recorded. If not by other people or our own higher selves, then by the powers or laws of the universe.
Tarot of Transformation. This 6 of Wands is quite different from that of a traditional tarot. If there’s any kind of victory, it’s that of finally being able to contact one’s true self, one’s inner seeing.
The 10 of Swords is traditionally seen as a death card or a card of endings. But not necessarily a literal death. In this case it’s described more as a literary death, with the keywords “Leaving the Story.” We create our own stories, with our own lives as the settings and ourselves as the central characters. We choose to stay or go, in most situations of life.
Tarot of Transformation, 5 of Wands. 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.
0 The Fool: Ignorance or Innocence? The figure in this card wears a costume reminiscent of a harlequin, and a mask. The figure follows a star, but looks over their shoulder at a smaller figure who appears to be demanding attention.
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.
