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

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Teal Newcomb

Website:  http://www.metalkirin.com

Keywords 

Serenity, new chances for love, intimacy 

Artist Interpretation 

The Cups suit is associated with emotional events and revelations. As Aces are associated with new beginnings, the Ace of Cups often signifies coming happiness through a new relationship or general success. The Cups suit’s element of water features heavily in my card design, the classically depicted five streams of water pour from the cup – representing the five senses, reminding us to trust in our senses, heart and intuition. Bright colors and verdant, floral subject matter accentuate the positive aspects of this card, this card is often associated with fertility, and the bird like alien creatures happily bond with their new family.  

Card Meaning 

A bird-like alien scoops water from an outlandish plant, his cup, from which five streams flow. This is life-giving fluid that he is bringing to his new family, his mate and chicks waiting in a nest nearby. The love they feel flooding their senses and coloring every action from now on.

When this card appears in a reading, you are being offered an opportunity for spiritual and emotional growth. Right now, love and connection are key aspects of your life, even if you are not fully aware of them. Spend some time getting in touch with your emotions. Learn to trust your feelings more, and to listen to your intuition, let them guide you to a more emotional and spiritual peace.

In your day to day life, look for chances to let compassion flourish over cynicism, to view the world through rose-tinted glasses a bit more. Where you may usually react with anger or frustration, try to react more with forgiveness and understanding. To show sympathy for what someone else is going through, rather than consider only how it affects you.

Featured Card of the Day – 12 of Fire ~ The Hero – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Guardian, Protector, Savior, Activist, Honorable, Integral, Selfless, Honest

Key Phrases

– A person of noble qualities
– Ordinary people who do extraordinary acts
– A person who lies cannot be trusted
– Put another’s wellbeing before your own at this time
– Accord others with respect and dignity
– Avoid gossip
– An opportunity for redemption
– Give a second chance
– Altruism or wounded ego?

Card Meaning

The Hero represents someone we all admire for their noble qualities, their courage, and willingness to champion and rescue the weak and vulnerable.

In the past, the hero would ride in and save a village from thieves and villains, rescue damsels in distress, and battle against injustice. In the present, they are doctors who work to save lives in lands ravaged by war and disease. They are environmentalists who place themselves in harm’s way in order to save the forest, the oceans, and the animals that dwell within. They are the soldiers, the firemen, the paramedics and police – all of them ordinary people, who serve and protect, and often put their own lives at risk in order to save the lives of others. The hero could be the mother who jumps out of a burning building in order to save her child’s life, the man who dives in front of a car in order to knock another person out of the way, or the man who risks drowning himself to rescue another from rushing floodwaters.

In modern times, the hero is a guardian, protector, savior, activist, environmentalist, and so much more. They serve without question. They serve for little or no reward. They serve simply because it is the right and honorable thing to do. They are ordinary people who perform extraordinary feats.

When the Hero appears in your reading you are being asked to embrace the code, to act selflessly for the greater good. It is time to be the best person you can be, to resist pettiness and behavior that makes you less than you could be. We cannot all perform heroic feats, nor are we all meant to. However, we can choose to hold ourselves to a higher standard and treat all those we meet with dignity, kindness, and compassion.

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

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Faith, Self-Belief, Confidence, Divine Connection, Trust, Serenity, Surrender

Key Phrases

– Faith is beautiful
– Self-belief helps you to overcome
– Self-belief and faith inspire confidence
– Doubt breeds mistakes
– Cruel words can do lasting harm
– Do not give up because of past mistakes
– Be kind and supportive
– Set yourself believable goals
– You matter. You are enough
– You are not alone
– Do not be unkind because others have been unkind to you
– Take delight in compliments

Card Meaning

To have faith – the seventh of the influence cards – is a beautiful thing. It inspires a feeling of serentiy that is unshakable. With faith comes a level of self-confidence that sees you capable of overcoming all that life throws at you. To have self-belief gives you confidence when facing new and challenging situations. When out in a social setting, you are comfortable to be yourself. Having self-belief allows you to enjoy life more because you are less troubled by insecurity.

With faith in yourself and your abilities, you stand a greater chance of having a successful career, you are more confident in taking well-considered risks, you are healthier and happier because you are under less pressure , and emotional and mental stress. In turn, your relationships with others will be better, also.

On the other hand, a lack of self-belief or faith can be seen in our moods, the way we speak about ourselves, our body language, and actions. Without faith, and belief in self, every decision can become an almost excruciating process.

If you do not believe that you will succeed or do well, then, sadly, there is an increased chance that you will not.  Doubt and a lack of faith breeds mistakes, procrastination, and self-sabotage. But know this, you are not unimportant. You are somebody. You are unique. You have gifts. You have strengths. You have talents. You are bright with potential, and if you believe in yourself you will shine.

A little belief can go a long way. With faith and self-belief, you can accomplish great things…even miracles.

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

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Peter Bradley

Website:  http://www.ravenchilde.com

Keywords 

Experienced, authoritative, analytical

Artist Interpretation   

They captain the center seat to make a difference. They lead the fight to save galaxies. They offer a lens of hope against the darkness. They stand firm on the shifting soils of alien worlds and defend queens who reign in cities, lighter than air. They are the Starship Captains, the Galactic Patrol. A Flash to blind the eye of galactic emperors. Their deeds are daring. They are the Kings of the universe, sword upheld, and its first defense.  

Card Meaning 

A space captain stands from his command chair, his hand raised, assured of victory. He is a figure that demands respect, his muscled body a testament to his experience within the field himself, suggesting that he has worked his way up to his position the hard way. Above his head, five golden spaceships speed onwards. These are his fleet to control, or the few we can see, anyway. He is an experienced war chief, speeding them on to right wrongs across the galaxy, having weighed up the pros and cons, and taken advice from his subordinates.  

When this card appears in a reading, it is time to take a step back and think objectively. The ultimate choice is yours to make, but you should do all you can to weigh up your options. Research all the possibilities, debate the issues and analyze the outcomes. Choose, only when you can be sure that you are making an informed decision, based on facts, and facts alone. This is not a time to let emotion sway you.

The King of Swords can suggest an honest, analytical person around you – someone for whom high standards and doing what’s right are just facets of their personality, rather than decisions to make – what you don’t see is the thought process that has already taken place.

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

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Felicia Cano

Website:  http://www.feliciacano.com

Keywords 

Committed, reliable, methodical 

Artist Interpretation     

I illustrated the Knight of Pentacles. I wanted to stay faithful to the traditional card illustration of a knight on a horse but give it a sense of otherworldliness.

Card Meaning 

An alien Knight rides a many tentacled beast across an unknown landscape. But he does not seem to be in a rush, his mount is slow and steady…a good thing for him, as his eyes are not on the path ahead. HIs focus is not on the area around him, instead, his eyes are firmly on a huge coin in his hand. There are no distractions for him out here, the land seems mostly barren and empty, and he appears to be alone on his journey to who knows where.

When this card appears in a reading, it’s time to be responsible, and careful. To knuckle down and finish the task at hand. It is reminding you that success is a long journey, and that you need to be dogged in chasing your dreams – it will not always be fun or glamorous, but the rewards will be worth it in the end…if you stick with it and don7t end up resenting the work ahead of you…

It’s time to keep your eyes on the prize and dig in, give it your all…if you’re already doing this, maybe the card is suggesting that you are the Knight of Pentacles at this moment, and need to let go of the reins a little.  

The Knight of Pentacles can represent a committed, responsible, even stolid person who is within your life at the moment. Someone who possesses great dedication and just will not give up.  

A bit of a perfectionist, this person embraces the opportunity to clear their plate, taking pride in each item ticked off their to-do list.
