Daily Tarot::2 of Wands

Today’s the last day for Daily Tarot posts. It’s become a pleasant habit for me to draw a card every day. It will continue to be one of my daily rituals and I will post any readings that I feel are particularly interesting.

I also do a weekly 3-card Tarot spread which I include in my journal (musings).

Now – on with the show…

This month alone, the 2 of Wands has appeared today, yesterday,
Christmas Day, and December 19th.
The last Post I published on the 2 of Wands was 12.19.2017

Alright already, I get the message…

Llewellyn Tarot

You’ve achieved a measure of success and are no longer in a situation filled with danger, difficulties, or trouble. Ask yourself: Where do you want to go now and what do you want to do with yourself? The 2 of Wands is all about taking stock of your life and access where you’re going. You have all the strength and energy of will to go wherever and do whatever your heart desires. The World’s your oyster. Keep meditating and pay close attention to your dreams (start a Dream Journal).

(The 2 of Wands is called the Lord of Dominion and is ruled by Mars in Aries – where it is at home! It represents energy of will, driving force, strength and power, pioneering spirt, and creativity – while the Shadow side can appear as aggression, cowardice, lack of confidence, revenge, and explosive violence.)

Daily Tarot::Daughter of Knives (reversed)

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

The Page of Swords was last drawn on 6.29.2017

Tarot of Vampyres

In general, Pages are an omen that a message, announcement, or surprise is forthcoming; and all Pages represent the beginning of a journey. The Page of Swords is known for ferreting out information and is associated with Mercury in Gemini (how the mind works), Venus in Libra (the need for balance), and Uranus in Aquarius (outspoken, calls things like they are).

This is a time for growth, trials, challenges of the mind, self-knowledge, and renewed confidence in yourself. You may be looking for a truth, exposing a secret or deception, having a karmic experience, or facing a new beginning or an end to a situation. Now’s the time to trust your instincts when communicating with others. Your rebellious and defiant nature will help you cut through the bullshit, but before you speak choose your words carefully lest they come back to haunt you. The Page of Swords also indicates you have a great deal of mental and physical energy. Put it to good use.

(Known as the Princess of the Rushing Winds and Lotus of the Palace of Air, the Page of Swords is rebellious, defiant, clever, insightful, and curious. Her Shadow self can be malicious, tempestuous, vengeful, and cruel.)

Daily Tarot::Queen of Pentacles

The Queen of Pentacles was last drawn on 12.12.2017

Tarot of the Pirates

Pentacles represent the material plane, real things, money, wealth, solid objects of value both financially and sentimentally. The Queen of Pentacles is the original Earth Mother, having a deep connection to animals and nature. Her sanctuary is her home and garden. The Queen of Pentacles often appears when a blissful state of mind has been achieved.

Life is going well for you right now and will continue to do so. Any issues should be dealt with in a practical, calm, and down-to-earth manner. Your continued happiness relies on maintaining a connection with Mother Nature and trusting your instincts to lead you in the right direction. She’s the assurance that you won’t lose the roof over your head or the bed you sleep in. Your destiny is to be safe and sound at this time in your life.

(As the Queen of the Thrones of Earth, the Queen of Pentacles is nurturing, kind, patient, creative, truthful, and sensual. The Shadow side of her nature is expressed as moodiness, bitterness, melancholia, and dependency.)

The 2 of Wands was last drawn on 8.23.2017

Twos of any suit speak of partnership, balance, and duality; and the 2 of Wands often indicates a partnership with another person. The combination of Mars in Aries creates an intense energy fueling your passion, drive, and desire – propelling you toward your destiny. With the 2 of Wands, there’s no room for hesitation or fear. If you’re facing challenges now, do not play the victim. Keep a clear head and remain fierce and defiantly proud – like this Vampyre warrior.

(The 2 of Wands is also known as the Lord of Dominion and is aligned with Mars in Aries.

Daily Tarot::The Moon

The Moon was last drawn on 10.5.2017

Tarot of Vampyres

The Number 18 is related to trickery, making someone else’s problem your problem, and experiencing hardships/learning lessons.

Generally, The Moon tends to appear when we are ignoring, denying, or refusing to see an undiscovered truth. A situation may appear cloudy or confusing to you right now. It’s possible that things are not all what they seem, but it’s also likely that insecurities and fears are distorting your perception. Remember that everyone and each situation is comprised of many sides – challenges, intentions, life lessons. In love relationships, The Moon points to some highly-charged emotions. Don’t let them get out of control, don’t make assumptions, and don’t take any course of action right now. Pay attention to your dreams (they’ll give you clues) and keep an eye out for synchronicities. The Moon also represents the female wildness within you and urges you to get in touch with those primal instincts.

(As the Ruler of Flux and Reflux and the Child of the Sons of the Mighty, The Moon represents the deep unconscious, illusions, lack of clarity, and the occult. Ruled by Pisces, The Moon’s Shadow aspect can appear as self-deception, addiction. depression, fear and hysteria.)
