Card of the Day: Strength

2019-01-13 13.55.01

Strength brings Heracles in his struggle with the Nemean Lion, a creature whose hide was too strong for weapons to pierce. It was in defeating the lion with his bare hands that Heracles earned the pelt and its defensive properties. This gives Strength the aspect of using your inner strength, courage and self-discipline to defeat your inner beast – the qualities of rage, senseless pride and ferocious egotism – in order to emerge more heroic. 🦁

Card of the Day: Page of Cups

2019-01-09 11.40.25The Page of Cups manifests as Narcissus, son of a river god and a nymph, who was as renowned for his beauty as he was for the story of getting enchanted by his own reflection the first time he saw it. This brings the Page of Cups the aspect of discovery of new love – either of another person or of oneself. The Page marks a time of emotional healing and the start of moving away from hurt and withdrawal into a new era of love and self-acceptance. He also reminds you of the need for self-care and to be gentle with yourself so that these early steps of healing can be properly nurtured and grow into something stronger that will let you venture back into the world when you are ready. 💧

Card of the Day: The Hierophant

2019-01-08 10.37.12

The Hierophant appears as Chiron, king of the Centaurs, wounded healer, teacher and philosopher; seen here emerging from his cave to impart wisdom and give the sign of ancient blessing with his raised hand. (Of course he could also be a secret rocker popping horns to say hey to a kindred spirit. He’s flexible like that! 😎)

Chiron’s association with knowledge and the mysteries indicates a time of seeking philosophical or spiritual truths. He can also suggest the need to seek counsel or aid from an outside person to help with the comfort and support you need in your current situation, and this aid and truth seeking will allow you to move on from outmoded ways and greet new challenges and adventures with better understanding and more success. 🤟

The Five of Wands also indicates limitations created by a conflict between ability and aims, where the current practicalities of life are clashing with ideals or plans. It may be necessary to improve skills or recover physical health before current aims can be achieved, and it may also be worthwhile re-examining your plans in case you’ve missed or underestimated something important. 🔥
