21. The World: Rebirth

The Tarot teaches us a lot about cycles. From The Wheel of Fortune, forever going around and around, to Death, showing us the transitions of life and the world around us. We have come to the final card of the Major Arcana, The World. What comes next? There's a hint inside the symbolism of the … Continue reading 21. The World: Rebirth

20: Judgement: Call to Action

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WhoIu9b1Gw It's time for you to look inward and begin asking yourself the big questions: who are you, and what do you want? Iroh's words are a huge call-out. This is the part of the journey at which The Fool must take all the lessons they have learned up to this point, and put them … Continue reading 20: Judgement: Call to Action

19. The Sun: Healing Your Inner Child

The Sun is such a happy card. In the traditional imagery, a child joyfully sits atop a horse, as the sun shines down and sunflowers grow tall in the background. This card represents release, liberation, and feeling totally alive. The baby represents innocence, the banner victory, and the sunflowers represent happiness and positivity. But if … Continue reading 19. The Sun: Healing Your Inner Child

18. The Moon: Cognitive Distortions

The Moon is such an important celestial body for all of us here on Earth. The word moon comes from the word for 'month', which shows how important it is for us when it comes to measuring time. The Moon's gravity causes tides, of which there are two high, and two low in 24 hours. … Continue reading 18. The Moon: Cognitive Distortions

17. The Star: The Calm After A Storm

The Fool has just experienced a huge upheaval when they encountered The Tower. They are feeling totally lost, not sure where to go from here. That's when they meet The Star, one of my favourite cards in the whole deck. The Star gives you this feeling of healing; it feels like coming indoors from the … Continue reading 17. The Star: The Calm After A Storm

16. The Tower: Fall down seven times get up eight

The Tower is the most hated (misunderstood) card in the Tarot. When I look at tarot subs on Reddit, I see a trend where people say something along the lines of 'I pulled The Tower and now I'm worried something bad is going to happen to me.' As you know if you have been here … Continue reading 16. The Tower: Fall down seven times get up eight

15. The Devil: Shadow Work

When The Fool meets The Devil, they learn what can happen if the teachings of Temperance are not heeded. This is an important lesson, one that many people learn the hard way. The Devil is all about self-destructive behaviours, ways that you are holding yourself back. These things can be negative thought patterns, addictions, or … Continue reading 15. The Devil: Shadow Work

14. Temperance: Queerness in Tarot

Along with The Hierophant, Temperance is one of my birth cards. It embodies what I think is one of the most important aspects of Tarot: Balance. The great thing about balance is it's a non-judgmental concept. There are many people who will tell you things like 'stop eating carbs' or 'go for a run every … Continue reading 14. Temperance: Queerness in Tarot

13. Death: It’s Not Morbid

Transitions. Not just of life to death, but child to adult, day to night, winter to spring to summer to autumn to winter again. Birthdays, the phases of the moon. Becoming a parent, student to employee to retired. Some of these transitions are easier than others. But we all go through many. Following and honouring … Continue reading 13. Death: It’s Not Morbid

12. The Hanged Man: Limbo vs Liminality

Something that I've thought a lot this year (2020) is that it feels a lot like we're in limbo. Limbo is a word I'm sure you've used before, but have you thought about where it comes from? It's from Catholic theology and refers to having died but not entering Heaven or Hell. The reason for … Continue reading 12. The Hanged Man: Limbo vs Liminality
