Featured Card of the Day – 8 of Wands – New Babylonian Tarot by Roxana Paul

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Roxana Paul

Website:  http://www.roxanapaul.com

Keywords 

Upright meanings: Action, resolution. Getting movement, finding a right solution.

Reversed meanings: Stagnation, frustration. Being tied, making a wrong decision.

Artist Interpretation 

The eight wands hang in the air with the mountains in the background, creating a fantastic picture in this card. There is no sun, and the halos on the tops of wands illuminate the valley below with artificial light. It is a mechanical metaphor of transforming an abstract idea into something practical or putting events into motion.

Card Meaning 

Eight of Wands represents the completion of a current project, being prepared to move into a new field. It is the moment to put new fresh ideas in action or new events into motion. Love affairs or romantic interests are possible. The distinguishing characteristics of this card include moving ahead, putting plans into practice, opening a new route, starting a new relationship.

Featured Card of the Day – The Hanged Man – New Babylonian Tarot by Roxana Paul

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Roxana Paul

Website:  http://www.roxanapaul.com

Artist Interpretation 

A man being hung upside-down by one ankle is depicted on this card. His other leg is bent at the knee; he does not look suffering but relaxed and calm. He is Dumuzi (Tammuz), formerly a mortal king who became a god of vegetation and fertility after his marriage to the goddess Inanna (Ishtar).

The metaphorical story of Dumuzi, the shepherd, and farmer god reflects the natural changes of the seasons. According to the Babylonian mythology, Inanna was offended by her husband’s behavior and ordered demons Galla to bring Dumuzi to the underworld. He had to stay in the hell for six months of each year and return to earth by the autumn. Dumuzi’s reunion with Inanna, the goddess of fertility, symbolized the revitalization of life when plants harvested.

Card Meaning 

The Hanged Man is a card with various and comprehensive meanings that can be viewed from three different perspectives. First of them incarnates the notion of sacrifice, selflessness, rejection of self-interest, and becoming a martyr. The second idea represents the concept of higher understanding, wisdom, and faith. From this point of view, the Hanged Man symbolizes an open mind that can overcome prejudices and preconceptions. The third notion is about introspection and emotional release. The Hanged Man accepts a stream of events, surrenders to circumstances, and lets things go.

A navigator of the dreamworld, Bear appreciates the value of rest and quietude. He instinctively knows how much downtime is needed in order to be recharged.

By the grace of your inner-sanctum, regroup and recharge.

The Path You’ve Chosen – May, 2018

Posted on Updated on

You are standing strong in your convictions to pursue your hopes and dreams; it does not matter what others think, you want what you want and you are not giving an inch. What you are working to achieve is true happiness, and only you can answer to the higher calling of what that happiness entails. It is possible to see a wish granted in your favor in the second half of May which bestows upon you the power and the resources to overcome past disappointments in life. When it happens it may very well feel as though you have been rescued from a feeling of sadness you could not escape. Emotional fulfillment will take its place, you need only shift your focus away from the things which did not work out in your favor, and strive to create your own personal bliss.

Remember to keep fun on the agenda; this is party season, with weddings and graduations, etc., keeping everyone in a celebratory mood. There is a tendency to want to speak the truth now, but it may be more in your favor to remain easygoing and play some things close to the vest as opposed to being brutally honest about how you truly feel. The Universe helps you to see through the illusions which have left you feeling cheated at times. Your creativity and intuition can see a growth spurt, but it may feel hampered by an inability to determine what is going on behind the scenes.

Remain balanced in your commitments; there is a strong feeling that one should not be trying to rock the boat now. Be gentle and patient, for you do not know what others may be going through, and everyone is going through something. Change is always on the horizon, for life evolves every day, even when it seems it does not. What the Universe is offering within this next month is something which gives you the potential for greater manifestation over the next three months, bringing your future and the changes you desire closer into view.

While you are already free from your past, there is a tendency here to feel as though there is part of it which is inescapable. Take comfort in knowing that even situations such as these run in cycles and there is a better one coming your way. It feels important to keep the past at bay, not that it will come back, but what you are stuck with requires kid gloves. It could be a person with whom you are dealing who is prone to a negative attitude or even words directed toward you. Keep your focus on the security you need in your life and know that an important door is about ready to open.
