Featured Card of the Day – Desire – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Desires, Wants, Dreams, Ambition, Goals, Price, Gestation, Manifestation, Consequences, Selfishness

Key Phrases

– What do you desire most?
– How much do you want it?
– Desire compels action
– Make another attempt
– Great expectations. Great disappointment
– Ground your desires in reality
– What you desire will have a price
– Wishful thinking
– Has your desire waned or changed?
– Let your conscience be your guide
– To desire something at the expense of another
– Selfish desires mirror a lack within

Card Meaning

To desire – to wish or long for something. To lust or crave is to desire. In simple terms, desire means to want something. Desire is the fourth influence on choice, and when it appears in your reading it asks that you explore your desires and ask what it is that you want – and how much you want it.

What are you willing to do in order to achieve your desires?

Is desire the root of all suffering? Many religious texts state that desire is something that corrupts humanity and blinds us to our true purpose. However, desire is the state of mind that compels you to act and do whatever you feel is necessary in order to fulfill that desire, because you know that you will feel pleasure or be rewarded for fulfilling that desire.

Featured Card of the Day – Queen of Water – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Loving, Compassionate, Empathetic, Sensitive, Vulnerable, Romantic, Intuitive, Emotional Honesty

Key Phrases

– Trust your feelings and senses
– Look beyond the surface
– A bright and positive outcome
– To show vulnerability is to show strength
– Are you overextending emotionally?
– Be the embodiment of love
– Withdrawing love as punishment
– Use your common sense

Card Meaning

The Queen of Water symbolizes a gentle, empathetic soul, who possesses a keen sense of intuition. She is loving, compassionate, and always kind. She knows when something is wrong, when a friend is hurting and in need of comfort or counsel. She is naturally in tune with her emotions, and the emotions of those around her. It is this natural connection and gentleness that draws people to her.

She is empathetic, and would never consider being deliberately cruel or unkind. She is generous and giving of herself to a fault. Only by having, and maintaining, healthy boundaries does this watery queen protect herself from becoming drained.

Her ability to intuitively ‘see’ and ‘know’ is her greatest strength. She looks beyond the surface to what lies within the subconscious, seeing the emotions of old that influence the present. She can sense the mood of a moment or the undercurrents that flow through a room full of people, and, because she can read other’s emotions with ease, she can often distinguish truth from falsehood.

This kbnowledge empowers. With it, the ever-romantic Queen of Water can often offer the perfect solution, particularly in matters of the heart. She believes in the power of love, but is also wise, and knows that relationships need to be nurtured and maintained, that emotional honesty is a key, as is a willingness to share our feelings.

When we share our true feelings we make ourselves vulnerable, but to be willing to do so shows both courage and strength.

Is this Queen a part of your nature? Is there someone in your life who needs or would benefit from your help and loving support?

Or is it you who needs to seek out a like energy in your life, for healing, or guidance?

When the Queen of Water appears in your cards she signifies a very affirming and positive energy, for she is the epitome of love in all of its forms. Take heart, and know that bright days are ahead.

Featured Card of the Day – Temperance – 78 Tarot Astral  ~ Tarot in Space

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  George Bogiatzidis

Website:  www.georgeboya.com

Artist Interpretation 

In my artwork, an enormous metallic angel stands as the symbol of humanity, a mega structure created by a glorious civilization. Both male and female is guarding our Earth in its mechanical womb while the Moon circles around its strong arms, a surreal image of balance and harmony and eternity. The card’s symbolism is all about the secret of eternal life and how we can find a part of it in our lifetime. The shell fishes are symbols of mindless destruction, always present in our universe. A Memento Mori that everything has an end, even eternity.

I use analogue collage as a mean of artistic expression, so there was a lot of cut and paste. The original photos I used I found on-line, mainly from advertisements of tools, kitchen equipment, camera lenses etc., along with some space photos from NASA.

Card Meaning 

A winged figure stands in the far reaches of space. Androgynous, it is a massive peace-keeper, and all around are space slugs, some choking a nearby planet. But this figure does not react. Smaller planets orbit around it, as though it was a sun in their galaxy. They pass through its hands without obstruction.​

When this card appears in a reading, it’s time for finding common ground and not taking risks. Personally, this is a time for moderation and avoiding excesses – in both day to day life, and your dealings with others. Be respectful, diplomatic and look for opportunities to restore harmony to the situation. Make sure you understand all the elements at work before making decisions.

Featured Card of the Day – Knight of Wands – 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Jeremias Colmenares

Website:  www.jeremiascolmenares.blog.fc2.com

Artist Interpretation 

The Knight of Wands card tells us about a young adventurer, full of energy, vitality and impetus, with a determined spirit. So, I had an idea based on a space traveler, which has an armor with technological applications. Our knight mounts an alien dragon; the dragon represents the fire, the corresponding element of the wands. I decided to work on a color palette with very bright and warm tones, based also on the fire element. The dragon is crowned with an antler, as a reference of Aries, one of the zodiac sign related to this card. To reinforce the sci-fi theme in the illustration, I created a background full of planets, constellations, stars, etc. I’m very fortunate working on a card with which I identified with in many different aspects, especially in its positive vibes.

Card Meaning 

When this card appears in a reading, it is a fiery torch, lighting a fire under you, and telling you (in no uncertain terms) to change it up a bit…you’re stuck in a bit of a rut and this card appears to tempt you to try something new and daring. Something that will infuse you with energy and help you get moving. Yes, you should think it through, but don’t get bogged down in making too many plans. Instead, allow your conviction and passion to guide you…just don’t let confidence turn to arrogance. And make sure that your enthusiasm and desire don’t turn into frustration and anger at the first hurdle – reign in your temper.

The Knight of Wands can represent a passionate, imaginative figure currently in your life, or coming into it soon. They are charismatic and daring, offering you a chance of adventure, an opportunity to say “to hell with it” and take a few risks. We’re usually attracted to them, like a moth to a flame…enjoy it, but don’t get burnt!

Featured Card of the Day – 8 of Cups – 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Zindy S. D. Nielsen ​

Website:  www.zindy-zone.dk

Artist Interpretation 

An image for when you are in between paths, struggling to let go, yet knowing there is more for you out there. Realizing you need to take that step, to grow as a person, focusing on your journey and becoming stronger.

I’ve illustrated this with a girl floating between her past and present into an unknown future. The vulnerable feeling of leaving the well-known, travelling into uncertainty. Not knowing what the future will bring for her, but she’s open to it, with the thought of there being more for her out there. She’s moving towards change, a new chapter in her life.

She’s reaching out and embracing her future, whatever it may bring her. She is in a very emotional state as she leaves her old life behind and starts her new one. Her journey has just begun…

Card Meaning 

Tentative, but ready, a woman floats towards her future, moving from darkness to light, leaving her past behind her. It’ not an easy decision, her hair grips cups, stealing remnants of her past and trying to take them with her. But she accepts that it is a necessary path to take, the cups are starting to fall gently away from her as she travels on.

When this card appears in a reading, you already know what you have to do, you’re just not sure that you want to yet… So this card appears to give you a gentle nudge in the right direction. To remind you that instead of delaying and making excuses, you need to make the break and walk away. Showing you that a fresh start awaits you. If only you can face, and accept the truth that you’re currently shying away from. Even as it creeps up on you, and slinks its way into your mind and heart. You need to stop holding onto the past – once you’ve made the break, you will be better off.

Featured Card of the Day – 2 of Cups – 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space

Posted on Updated on


Artist:  Rebecca Sinz

Website:  www.elevenstarart.com

Artist Interpretation 

Like traditionally with this card, I’ve shown a couple facing each other holding cups. Mine are a little more intimate, with him holding her at the waist, instead of touching her hand or cup. I felt this was another way to show the connection or attraction between them in a more romantic way. Some symbols I worked in – running down the side of her dress are glowing hearts, often associated with the number two, symbolizing harmony and also look like a pair of twos facing each other. On the shoulder of his coat is a spiral, also associated with the number two meaning developing awareness. For colors, I went with red and blue…showing hot and cold. Opposites, but equal and balanced. Also in the card is the caduceus in between them. I wanted to include it in a way where it seemed to fit in with the background, so decided to turn it into a constellation. It’s prominent, but blends well.

Card Meaning

A couple toast each other under the stars, celebrating against a backdrop of shooting stars. Whether they are lovers or partners is unclear, but it is certain that he wants this to be more, as his arm reaches on her waist, pulling him to her.

When this card appears in a reading, it is time to give love and partnership a chance. Time to come together and lower your walls. Don’t be stand offish, around others, but open and allow yourself to form a bond. Embrace connections and opportunities to experience harmony.

The basis of a true, respectful, special relationship, be it romantic, or platonic, is out there waiting for you….foster it and help it to grow. Give yourself permission to feel unity and joy, to work with others and feel secure in the knowledge that someone has your back.

Featured Card of the Day – The Youth – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Adventure, New Horizons, Excitement, Independence, Freedom, Rebellion, Impulsiveness, Loyalty, Compromise

Key Phrases

– Quest for adventure
– Live in the moment
– Action without thought
– Defying tradition and conformity
– Greater risk, greater reward
– Assert your independence
– Embrace individuality
– A new direction
– Freedom from fear and doubts
– A time of conflict and turmoil
– Communication and compromise
– Address desires

Card Meaning

Sweet-faced and beguiling, the Youth has left the security of home and hearth without a backward glance. He is alone, but confident in the knowledge that a loving and supportive family will be there if he has need of them.

On a quest for adventure and discovery, he seeks the excitement of the new and unknown in distant lands. Following whispers and rumor, he takes risks with little thought or care. His choice is to live in the moment. The past is left behind, while thoughts of the future rest only as far as his next journey. Every adventure gives him a greater knowledge of the world and his place in it.

Believing himself both immortal and infallible, he often acts spontaneously, using his charm and enthusiasm to win him favor and release him from strife. He rebels against sage advice to use restraint or caution. As far as the Youth is concerned, the greater the risk, the more rewarding the outcome.

The only loyalty he shows is to those companions who journey with him. Those who are loyal to the quest will have his loyalty in return, while those who seek to curb and restrict him will be met with resistance. Those who share his passions and interests are ‘right’, while those who do not are ‘wrong’. There are no shades of gray. The Youth sees all in black and white.

The Youth also seeks the freedom to find his own answers. Tradition be damned; life is too short to follow in another’s footsteps, and do things their way. The Youth will do things his way without thought for the consequences. His concern is for today. Tomorrow can take care of itself.

Featured Card of the Day – 4 of Air – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Structure, Routine, Order, Patterns, Discipline, Oraganization, Understanding, Productivity

Key Phrases

– Order your environment
– Banish clutter. Clean house
– Create structure in your day
– Follow a routine
– Keep a time budget
– If you truly want something, you will make time for it
– Limit distraction and time wasters
– Weed out bad habits
– Remove negative influences

Card Meaning

The Four of Air symbolizes the importance of ordering your environment and giving your day structure, especially if you have specific goals or projects you wish to perform, and complete.

Routines are our daily habits – the things that we do on a daily basis – given structure and order. Following our routine moves us from one part of our day to the next. Having a routine can provide us with a level of security born of consistency.

By establishing order in our environment, we also add to that sense of security. When everything has its place, we can be confident that it will be there when we need it. We won’t waste hours of our day looking for something that has been lost in the clutter and mess that we often surround ourselves with.

A cluttered and chaotic environment can give rise to a cluttered and disorganized mind, a mind that is unable to follow a routine that is conducive to productivity.

The Four of Air suggests establishing order in your life by removing the clutter. Establish a pattern of regular cleaning. Put things back where they belong after use so they are there the next time you need them. Keep your paperwork in order. Even make a place in your life for the unexpected and unanticipated. That way, even chaos does not have too much of an impact on your peace of mind, or prevent you from doing what needs to be done.

Featured Card of the Day – 11 of Water:  Emotion/Intellect – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Emotion/Intellect, Love, Fear, Expression, Suppression, Head, Heart, Ease, Disease

Key Phrases

– Influence of emotional disharmony
– Both love and fear motivate
– Is fear the more dominant force?
– Unvoiced emotions must be expressed
– Address unhealthy imbalances
– Suppressed emotion creates disease
– Seek a productive means of emotional release
– Be proactive and mindful of your emotions

Card Meaning

The Eleven of Water is a balancing and realignment card that addresses any emotional disharmony that may be influencing your choices and environment. It also represents the need for us to see the whole and how an imbalance can affect it.

Love and fear…how many times have you heard someone say that a choice or action was made from a place of fear, or was born of a person’s insecurities and doubts, or was born of love? When we are attacked by others, we may react and retaliate because we are angry and afraid, but we may also act because we have love for ourselves and wish to address an injustice and prevent further injustice. We may choose not to take a risk or make changes in our lives because we are afraid of an unknown future – but we may also choose not to take a risk that may alter our lives because we love the life we already have. We may be plagued with doubts, but we can also be blinded by love.
