The Daily Draw: Six of Wands

A Job Well Done On the RWS six of Wands, a person sits above the crowd on horseback, head held high. Even the horse looks a bit pleased with itself. A laurel wreath hangs from the wand the rider is holding. Externally, this card is a clear sign of success. Whatever this person has putContinue reading “The Daily Draw: Six of Wands”

The Daily Draw: Five of Wands, Reversed

Conflict Avoidance is Not Conflict Resolution The fives in the minor arcana are all about change and challenge—there’s no room for complacency.  Maybe that’s part of the reason the Fives of Wands can seem to take such a wide variety of positions on the theme of conflict, competition, inconvenient hassles, especially when reversed. Maybe it’sContinue reading “The Daily Draw: Five of Wands, Reversed”

The Daily Draw: Ten of Swords Reversed

After You Hit the Bottom There’s no denying that the Ten of Swords is one of the scariest looking cards in the RWS tarot deck. A lifeless figure lies on the ground with all ten swords sticking out of that person’s back, a robe the color of blood draped around the lower extremities.. Devastating andContinue reading “The Daily Draw: Ten of Swords Reversed”

The Daily Draw: Queen of Pentacles reversed

Mommy Dearest The Queen of Pentacles has the qualities of being big hearted, nurturing, resourceful, practical, generous, and well grounded.  She is perhaps the most motherly of all the queen cards.

The Daily Draw: Two of Wands, reversed

Baa Yourself   The Oxford English dictionary defines the word “sheeple” as “people compared to sheep in being docile, foolish or easily led”.  I was surprised to find sheeple in the Oxford dictionary. I was also surprised to discover that it’s been in use for over 70 years. Social media had me convinced that itContinue reading “The Daily Draw: Two of Wands, reversed”

The Daily Draw: The Sun, Reversed

Paris Usually I like Mondays. I look forward to getting into the office, being able to sit down, have a cup of coffee, and concentrate on something for more than five minutes without being pulled in several directions at once. (luxury, as my stay-home partner keeps telling me). I love my family, and I loveContinue reading “The Daily Draw: The Sun, Reversed”

The Daily Draw: The World

Ascending Up the Spiral Today’s card is The World, and it is a spectacular energy to come up on the heels of the Scorpio new moon, which is such a wonderful opportunity for self-discovery and growth. Life tends to operate in spirals – you begin a journey, start a project, take a course of action.Continue reading “The Daily Draw: The World”

The Daily Draw: Ace of Swords Reversed

Don’t Fear Your Own Shadow The Ace of Swords suggests a beginning that, for example, could be the start of a project or an invitation that involves courage, integrity, and clarity of thought.

Find Your Inner Peace

Joy, happiness, inner peace—these are things that cannot be given. They must be found inside yourself. And they are there, even if they can be difficult to access. We let negative self-talk convince us they don’t exist, at least not for us. What we believe is projected around us, and when those beliefs are negativeContinue reading “Find Your Inner Peace”
