Artist Statement

“Haunted rides and a ghostly atmosphere create an ominous feeling for my dark, carnival-themed card. I love the tones of blue, purple and acid green, melting together to create a fluid stream of thoughts where the reality seems lost in the haze of a dream, timeless in its moving stillness.

The star is there, in front of you, to lead you to your safe place. It’s so bright, but it doesn’t blindfold you, it fills your soul of a sudden awareness, it awakens you from the dream, infusing with peace your inner self. Follow the Star and abandon your fears.”

Card Meaning

A young girl walks through a dark circus. Behind her stands a huge Gothic castle, reminding her of the challenges she has faced, the horrors that she leaves behind. She has traveled through a misty forest to get this far, and all she has found is an abandoned carnival. But at her heart glows a large star, the Universe offering her warmth and guiding light so that she can see the way ahead. Seven more stars float around her skirt, illuminating her path as she travels. The lights that lead her on are eight-pointed stars, symbols of strength, garnered from the obstacles she has overcome.

This card gives us hope, representing the distant light at the end of the tunnel, providing confidence and motivation to continue our journey, preventing us from losing our way.

Featured Card of the Day – The High Priestess – 78 Tarot Nautical/Tarot of the Water

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Tanya Bond

Website: None Given

Keywords

Potential, inaction, mystery, intuition

Artist Interpretation

“The High Priestess card is strongly connected with intuition; she is knowledgeable of mysteries that lurk behind the veil. She speaks directly to our subconscious mind; she knows of our inner strengths and helps us achieve our best potential. She clears a way for unencumbered progress in our creative endeavors, spiritual transformation and inner growth.”

Card Meaning

The High Priestess stands before a nautical veil suspended between black and white pillars. She is the guardian of the mysteries behind the veil, and stands between the darkness and the light. Her necklace is a compass suspended in a planchette, symbolizing guidance – she invites you to learn the mysteries of the sea and your own intuion, if you are worthy. She looks welcoming, but the spikes on her dress remind you of her power, and to carefully consider all before you. Listen to your inner voice before you proceed, because all is not always what it seems.

This card is a reminder to trust your intuition, and to pay attention to it. It symbolizes an understanding and acceptance of the mysteries of self, and where they can lead you.
