The Star card in the Mother Tarot Deck is about the human connection to the fae/fairy realm. Creative and nurturing instincts are linked with recognition. Fairies are Earth spirits that mimic the natural world out of divine recognition, thus when humans “see” these spirits, they take on human-like form.
Fairies thrive in natural settings. Conversely, in a world where little natural beauty is present, fairies are less likely to be present. Learn to listen to the mountains,
In retrospect, if I could have seen myself through the eyes of a fly on the wall, the scene must have been at least mildly funny: I started the kettle and sat at the kitchen table—cried, crawled back into bed. I re-emerged from bed an hour later, actually made the coffee this time and drank a cup while trying to write—cried on the couch for a while. I spread out in the living room, moved through a yoga flow for an hour—finished practicing, cried again on my mat. I ate one s
The Ace of Pentacles in the Mother Tarot Deck is about grounding. Our bodies are made of water for the most part, so we’re natural conductors of electricity, impacted and altered by each signal and wave we come into contact with. Our modern world would have us constantly immersed in these invisible electromagnetic fields with no instruction to protect against, neutralize or ground energy back into the earth.
This clever Ace is here to remind you to remove your shoes and
The Ace of Cups in the Mother Tarot Deck suggests self-love, self-touch, and sex with the self. Stimulating one’s own root encourages transformative healing, and wonderfully, this tool is always available to us. Aces consider that which is ours to own and protect: in the case of the suit of cups (water), it is our sensuality. When this card appears, it’s time to make time for yourself. Dress up for yourself. Adorn yourself for yourself. Look at yourself. Touch yourself as dee
The Empress in the Mother Tarot Deck is the fairy queen of the deck, commanding laws of nature to do her beautiful bidding. She can be found in morning dewdrops, pubic musk, flirty flowers and astounding sunsets. She is the spring and summer: a blooming spirit. This Empress holds the power to manifest many great things and she brims with the confidence that this is true. If you've pulled this card in a reading, the Empress is either living in your midst or within you. She imp
Delaying gratification is priceless when building quality in many areas of life, and Tarot card reading can help you to build this essential skill. Playing, Oracle and Tarot cards provide space for psychic information—personal, collective or higher—to flow. It is up to you and your abilities as to what kind of information that might be. For example, if you’re clairaudient, you might hear more clear and direct information in answer to your current quest as you gaze at the card
Photo by Mary Kalhor When reading Tarot or other cards for divination, it is helpful to stay in tune with your current quest. To ascertain your current quest, simply ask the Tarot what your current quest is, pulling a single card to learn more. The trick to this game is learning when to ask the cards this question. Before you perform this reading, hold the deck and ask yourself if you already know what your current quest is. If the answer you hear first in your mind, heart an
Hello readers. Let’s have a quick think about fear, anxiety, and dread. The very nature of these words tangle around each other, like their definitions are just different rungs on the same downward spiral. All three of these emotions (or, inner experiences) have a common thread of apprehending uncertainty, and sometimes, filling that mysterious space ahead with more fear, with anxiety-inducing possibilities, with timorous turmoil. The crux: the more we associate with our fe
