Crap. One day I am going to learn to stop messing around with these cards. It's all fun and games until you draw The Tower, right?
So, this week, in addition to working with the Hezicos Tarot for the first time, I have decided to pull my cards at night and label them "Issue" and "Lesson".
Still, no one likes to see The Tower. Hmm, let's see,, how can I relate this to my day? It has been fairly quiet around here, it's snowing now, and I mostly stayed home and rested (not lazily, the cards told me to!)
One of the things I thought about in my rest was how to change my life, and one of the things I am thinking about doing would be a complete shake up kind of situation. I hate change. Especially this kind of shake up. I know it is necessary at times, and that it clears the air for real growth and change, but it does not have to be fun while it happens.
The Lesson - Six of Swords. This is another card that I see as moving from one place to another, but not necessarily happily. So, my issue of the day is dealing with the change that has to happen, even though it is so drastic, but knowing I can take comfort in the idea that I am moving towards safety.
These cards are from the Hezicos Tarot by Mary Griffin.
I am not a visual artist. The creators of the decks I use are. I try very hard to give proper credit to the artist when I use an image.
My most oft used deck on this blog is the Deviant Moon Tarot, created by Patrick Valenza and published by U.S. Games Systems, Incorporated. Check out his site to buy some fantastic Deviant Moon stuff, or a deck of your own!
A lovely, but digital only, Rider Waite Smith clone deck is the Aquatic by Andreas Schroter. You are allowed to downlaod and use the images.
They also make me tell you that readings are for entertainment purposes only. I'll tell you on my own that if you change your life based on a few cards something is not right there.
