Wheel of Fortune, another card I like. This card stands for the everlasting change, nothing is the same for ever. It also stands for good fortune and a stroke of destiny. So It looks like I’m in for another interesting week.

New deck

So I finally got around to get the Gilded tarotdeck. What can I say… I simply love it! It’s so beautiful and easy to use. The images simply speak to me and I have no problem understanding the symbolism. So money well spent I would say.

So today I’m going to draw a card of the week whit my new deck. The card I drew:

Oh I’m so happy I drew this card, well who wouldn’t be…

The Sun is a truly positive card that brings happiness, success and is a very strong indicator of good things to come. So it looks like I’ll have a good week, which I’m in need of after a couple not so good ones.

TarotBlogHop: “Ostara: Paint a journey with new life.”

This post is part of the TarotBlogHop, a facebook group. The one in front of me in the circle is Chloe (you may have come from her) and the one after me is Ania(feel free to hop on to her blog when you are finished here). The topic for this Tarot BlogHop is Ostara, paint a journey with new life. I had some difficulties whit this topic, what should I wright about? Ostara for me is about spring, about new life and hope. And in some ways that is what tarot is all about, well maybe not so much about new life but certainly about hope and new beginnings. In a way we paint a new journey when we consult the cards. We spread them on the table ant they create this marvelous painting of color (well that depends a bit on which deck you use I suppose). When everything comes together you can read the painting and see how the path flows in it. For me this is the best way to use the cards, not only to see them as individual cards but to see how the link together and how the patterns of colors, images and meanings helps me to get at deeper understanding. Its like one of those 3D-pictures that were popular when I was a child. Fist you only see lines and swirls and dots, but when the eyes focus on the right thing a tiger pops out of the picture. So when I do a really good reading the tarot tells me a seamless story, it paints the new path through life, or at least one possible path. Maybe this is why I’m so fond of decks whit a lot of colors, they make lovely paintings when laid on the table. Last, but not least I would like to share whit you the card in my deck that for me symbolizes spring and Ostara:

III Creativity (The Empress)

It’s full of vibrant spring colors and the empress looks young and happy. The water in the right hand lower corner reminds me of the spring rains and the pink lotus looks a lot like a tulip which is one of my favorite flowers and my garden is full of them in spring time. This for me is the Ostara card.

I hope you have enjoyed the bloghop so fare and that you continue on :).

Tarotcard of the week: 2 of cups

A new week, a new card:

2 of cups, Friendliness

Traditional interpretation: It stands for love, either between two people (both friendly and romantic), but also to a purpose or a cause. It shows us that we have a choice, to explore the new feelings or to go in another direction. It can also stand for a fellowship or an unexpected meeting or an intimate conversation.

Osho Zen interpretation: It stands for a selfless fellowship without demands and without dependents from either party. The pure form of fellowship.

My interpretation: For me the card stand for the beginning of a relationship of any kind. The picture shows us what a strong relationship looks like. The trees stand on their own trunks, they are strong in themselves, they have their own power and strength. But the crowns are intertwined, not completely but the two trees become part of each other. It shows us that even in a relationship, we need to stand on our own base, find our own strength. While we allow parts of our lives and our person to intertwine with others, there are also parts of us that is only ours. We are always individuals. This is true both for friendship and love. This is one of my favorite cards in the deck because it reminds me of what to strive for to achieve a healthy relationship with the people in our lives.

Tarot spread

Yesterday evening I did a tarot spread for my self. It’s not often I do tarot spreads for my self, it is so easy to put my own feelings in to it. It is hard to be objective when it comes to my self. But yesterday I did an exception and did a spread that I call “The tree of life”. It is one of my absolute favorites and works well on most problem. Yesterday I was feeling a bit lost in the love department, it hasn’t been a good year for love in my life. I thought I would share my spread whit you. I used the Osho Zen deck as usual and this is the spread I used:

1 = What you need to learn.
2 = Which challenges you need to face.
3 = What is influencing you at the moment.
4 = What will help you.
5 = Warnings.
6 = What you need to let go / sacrifice.
7 = The result of your goal.

This is the cards I drew:

1: The empress – I need to learn to be more active, to take charge and not be passive. If I want to find love I need to realize that it is an active process and I can’t just wait for it to happen.

2: 10 of Coins – There will be money issues that will take my focus of love and there is a risk that my problem will make me isolate myself from others.

3: The hermit – I need some alone time to work through some issues. I am not ready for love at the moment.

4: Page of Coins – Sometimes the search is more important than the goal. It is important that I take the time to find my own path and look at it like an adventure. Dating is just as fun as the relationship so I need to enjoy the ride.

5: 7 of Rods: I need to relax and don’t stress about love. If I get obsessed and stressed it will not come to me. In time the path that leads me right will appear.

6: The wheel of fortune- I need to let go of the idea that life is like a fairy tale, love will not appear on my doorstep just because it is meant to be. Faith can only take you so fare, I need to do a bit of leg work.

7: Page of Rods: There is romance in the future, but in the near future maybe not “The One”. It is okay to just have fun and take it one day at the time, not all relationships are meant to last forever but they can still be important parts of your life.

That’s my reading, if any of you see it different please let me know.
