Daily Tarot::King of Wands (reversed)

NOTE:  Reversed cards now interpreted as Upright – with greater emphasis.

Tarot Apokalypsis

Wands represent the element of Fire, a living light emanating directly from the infinite; they stand for the spirituality inside us all – our human soul.

To rule justly and fairly, a King must possess wisdom and be of strong moral character. The Kings represent knowledge gained as a result of accumulated philosophical learning. The King of Wands questions everything that inflames him in order to pinpoint its psychological source. The wisdom he gains as a result will allow his “masculine fiery energy” to endure without burning out. The King of Wands IS creative, revolutionary, passionate, sexual, thoughtful, honest, and adventurous.

A very positive card, the King of Wands signifies an abundance of energy is at your disposal. The King of Wands also symbolizes mutual caring between two people and embodies one of the individuals in this relationship. This person is someone who has protective, caring feelings for you; they will do whatever is necessary to make the relationship work. Spiritually, you are well on your path of exploration; of knowing who you are and what you want.

Daily Tarot::10 of Pentacles (reversed)

NOTE:  Reversed cards now interpreted as Upright – with greater emphasis.

Crystal Visions Tarot

Element:  Earth

Tens represent a conclusion of some kind, but numerically 10 also equals 1 (1+0=1) which equates beginnings. One door closes, another door opens…

The 10 of Pentacles is a very positive card; it says you’ve reached a happy and comfortable stability. In love, this card points to a happy period that will last for some time. The 10 of Pentacles in regards to finances is a good omen. In all, the 10 of Pentacles shows that every aspect of your life is going well. You have a lot to be thankful for. Abundance is a state of mind – so keep up the positive visualization.

(Known as the Lord of Wealth, the 10 of Pentacles is aligned with Mercury in Virgo; representing richness, bounty, and abundance – both inner and outer – the point where their richest potentials unfold.)

In addition to the regular methodology I use for drawing my Daily Tarot Card, I’m starting to draw a SECOND card from the top of the deck (curiosity mostly, but also to compare the two):
The Lovers  – Air
(Called the Children of the Voice and Oracle of the Mighty Gods, The Lovers card is ruled by Gemini and represents the reconciliation of opposites, decisions and choices to be made.) The Lovers usually means that LOVE is taking the center stage of your life, but this card can also stand for duality (male/female, yin/yang, approach/avoidance, etc). Drawing The Lovers card represents leaving your current way of life and fully embracing another one uncompromisingly. Embrace it!

Daily Tarot::The Magician

Symbolist Tarot

Element:  Air
Number:   1 – Primal Force; not allowing anything or anyone limit its potential for producing results – for creating

The Magician represents a new beginning and is a powerfully positive omen. The Magician will be conjuring up synchronicities pointing to spiritual events (this is, after all, a spiritual card), and you’ll find you have all the tools needed to meet your challenges. This card is all about harnessing your energy and channeling it to create the seemingly impossible – MAGIC! The Magician indicates you’ll see great improvement concerning work – and regarding your financial situtation.

(One the most powerful Tarot cards, The Magician is ruled by Mercury. Also known as the Magus of Power, he represents consciousness, action and creation. As the symbol of the idea of  manifestation, The Magician points to an awareness of the power in life and in one’s self.)

In addition to the regular methodology I use for drawing my Daily Tarot Card, I’m starting to draw a SECOND card from the top of the deck (curiosity mostly, but also to compare the two):
Page of Pentacles – with greater emphasis (Earth)
(The Princess of the Echoing Hills is Earth in Earth and represents the early energy of  manifestation in the physical world of making and growing.)
Pages are the youngest of the Court cards and herald beginnings. The Page of Pentacles brings news that things are going to change for the better very soon.

Daily Tarot::9 of Swords

NOTE: The Black Panther is my Animal Totem

Ostara Tarot

Element:  Air
Number:   9 (my Life Path number) is the symbol of wisdom and initiation, is highly emotional, and holds the path to mystical knowledge. It is the last of the cardinal numbers. In love, Nines are romantic, ardent and impetuous; thriving on passion and excitement. Relationships lacking these qualities will never satisfy a Nine. They need to know their partner (or consort) “has their back” and that the relationship is a true and equal partnership in every way.

Nines appear when we have to face a situation on our own and make decisions for ourselves. Nines show that outside guidance or counsel either isn’t there, or we don’t need it.

The 9 of Swords is all about overwhelming fear and self-doubt. The monsters inside are ones you have created yourself (“mountains out of mole hills”). They are not based in reality. They are not real. The 9 of Swords may indicate other influences in your life contributing to your anxiety. Remain positive; don’t give in to the downward spiral of negativity. Revel in the beauty of day-to-day moments; find bliss in the simple things in life. If you’ve found a new love, don’t allow yourself to get too carried away – the 9 of Swords reminds you trust needs time to develop. This card also shows you may be worried about your financial situation. Since the number 9 stands for completion in Numerology, you may find this period of anxiety and fear is coming to an end very soon.

(Aligned with Mars in Gemini and known as the Lord of Cruelty, the 9 of Swords represents fear, anxiety, and the growing awareness of personal truths.)

In addition to the regular methodology I use for drawing my Daily Tarot Card, I’m starting to draw a SECOND card from the top of the deck (curiosity mostly, but also to compare the two):
Knight of Wands  – Fire
The Knight of Wands Reversed was last drawn on 7.20.2017
This Knight is my heart and soul, and is most certainly connected to my Daily Tarot Card, the 9 of Swords. He is my champion and protector. A true Knight who “has my back” and is the rock beneath my feet as I wage war upon my “monsters”.
