#TarotPerspective – Day 10

Shadowscapes tarot – this figures cloak is white behind him with a wing overlay, in front of him it is black and has crows with it. This shows well the black and white of judgment. The arbiter, ready to show change and action. He is posed as if listening intently. His sword used as a cane more than a sword. A owl perches at the top watching and listening as well. He is seeking to be clear and to understand.

The Wild Unknown tarot – The owl looks angry, no not angry, concerned. He looks at the situation across his spectrum sword. He uses his amazing owl senses to understand the situation. Being a father rather than a king the Owl seeks to guide.

Smith Tarot – the king sits atop his throne receiving council. He holds the symbol of his station, ready to bring clarity to those seeking.

The king of swords is the Aquarius court card.

#TarotPerspective – Day 9

5 is the card of The Hierophant, structure, institution, tradition.

Wands are the suit of fire. Strength, inspiration,  creativity.

The 5 of Wands shows conflict.

Shadowscapes Tarot – I read this as a man vs nature card as the athlete runs in the opposite direction of all the animals. They embrace the wands behind the athlete as they embrace only the one they use as a tool. Spread out, look at the bigger picture, consider different approaches, look to nature

The Wild Unknown Tarot – The wands are not parallel, they are not ordered or perpendicular. They look like brushes or pencils thrown down when working. The conflict has stopped order, structure, and progress.

Smith Tarot – I usually see a fight in this card, but no one looks dressed for battle. They also don’t look like they are hitting eachother. I wonder if they are dancing. Perhaps instead of physical fight this is more about disharmony in the group, they are out of step and out of focus. Some are blaming others, it may soon become violence.

spider-web-615272_960_720Resourcefulness, craftspersonship, learning a new trade or skill, job growth, being cunning and crafty, understanding your audience or market.

It is interesting to me that two of these decks have spiders as their central theme. The resourceful and skilled web builder on her silken strand.

There is a careful and planned cycle to the movements of a spider. I wonder if young spiders building their fist web have a lot of trial and error before they get it right?
