THE CARD’S STORY BY: TIFFANY TOLAND-SCOTT

The Fisherman and His Wife is a tale about a man who catches an enchanted fish and lets it go. As thanks for being spared the fish grants the fisherman’s wishes, but the fisherman’s wife is the one making all the wishes. At first her wishes are realistic – a hut instead of a pig-sty – but quickly her wishes become more and more profligate until finally she offends the fish by wishing to be in charge of everything including the fish. The fish takes back all of her granted wishes and puts her back in the pig-sty she came from. To me, the story is the perfect representation of the Page of Pentacles, both upright and reversed. The Page has the ability to make all of their dreams come true, but if they daydream too much none of their dreams will come true.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

It’s time for realistic enthusiasm. The ideas are burgeoning within you, driving you to build on them, so keep your eyes open for opportunity. You’re ready…just make sure that you stay practical. Don’t rush in, risking it all for a get rich quick scheme and end up regretting it. Instead, put the work in…It’ll be worth it! The Page of Pentacles often represents a person in your life – young at heart, giving you the chance security. Or suggesting you embrace your physical nature, taking care of your health – reminding you to connect to nature, and keep moving through life.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: FISHERMAN AND HIS WIFE

The Fisherman and his Wife is a folklore tale in which the fisherman catches a golden fi sh, who offers wishes in return for being released. The fisherman’s wife is the one who makes the wishes, starting off small and asking for simple things. But she ends up getting too greedy, and losing it all! Th e “morality tale” of this legend, reminding the reader to maintain a sensible level of desire, we thought this was a wonderful Page of Pentacles!

THE CARD’S STORY BY: REGAN KUBECEK

I found the card spoke to me of disconnect and removing one’s self from opportunity and possibility. I saw a solitary figure, deep in thought and lost in their own space and familiar surroundings. But not looking beyond. They seemed to be focused intently on inward concerns and struggles. Becoming caught up in routine and dissatisfied with their lot. All these are essentially true of the four of cups. Yet looking deeper the message is not so black and white, it is not all about being stubborn or self-absorbed. It is also about reflection and taking time to reevaluate your situation. To take the time to see all the other things on offer, to be mindful and yes careful. But to also look beyond yourself and consider so much more.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

The Selkie sits amongst the waves and sea shells as the water crashes against the distant shore. She cannot focus, she is distracted and dissatisfied, searching for happiness within. You’re in danger of withdrawing too much into yourself – introspection can be very positive and grounding, but there can be too much of a good thing! Yes, you need to look inward & work things out, ignoring unnecessary distractions, but don’t lose sight of what’s right in front of you. Take some time by yourself, for reflection, to rebalance and reconnect to your emotions and spirit, and decide what you want to do. Then shake yourself free, ready to act, energized and enthused!

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: SELKIE

Legends of the Selkie come originally from Scotland, but go as far afi eld as the Faroe Islands. Te Selkie were believed to be beautiful men and women who lived as seals when in the sea. Should they come ashore they could remove their skin and walk as humans on the land. It was said that if a female Selkie’s skin was stolen, then she would be forced to live as the wife of the man who had taken it. These stories usually have a tragic ending, with the woman finding her skin and returning to the seas and leaving loved ones behind, or being trapped on land, forever longing for a home to which they can never return. The constant seeking happiness of a land-bound Selkie represents a fi tting parallel to this card.

Featured Card of the Day – 6 of Pentacles – Crow Tarot by M.J. Cullinane

Posted on Updated on

Artist: M.J. Cullinane

Website: http://www.enchanteddecks.com

Card Meaning

The generously charitable crow happily shares a fish; he has two and is not worried about finding more. Although he is a compassionate crow, he is not necessarily a philanthropist as he does expect some form of payback in the future. The 6 of Pentacles denotes a time of receiving or offering help with strings attached.

THE CARD’S STORY BY: CHRIS MALIDORE

With all things that feel like finality we can often look back and see them more as a stepping stone to something further. Th is card represents a look into those changes we take on in life, no matter how daunting, and reminds us to see the transition within them into something new. Life can bring us many challenges and endings, and the sadness that follows can truly be a healing exercise. In this deck we tap into the story of Charon, the ferryman of Greek mythology. He transports a soul into the next stage of its path, down the River Styx. He reminds us to allow these cycles that come at us, as they are quite natural… to pay our dues… and to just maybe appreciate a sun rise, knowing that it may be our last for quite some time.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

Regardless of the swirling waters and motion of the River Styx, Charon is calm – the perfect guide to navigate through this, and take his passengers safely to a better world. It’s time to prune the dead wood, and get rid of what’s no longer necessary to you. Let go of attitudes and habits that hold you back. Say goodbye to the past, set yourself adrift and sail away from it, freeing yourself to start a new life, as you focus on what is essential to you right now.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: CHARON

Charon (also known as Kharon) is the infamous ferryman in Greek mythology who carries the souls of the dead into Hades. Th e dead were buried with a coin in their mouth (sometimes believed to be on their eyes) as his fare, as he would navigate the arduous trip through the rivers that separated the land of the living from the realm of the dead. Given the way in which he aids in the transition of the dead, from their earthly body to their new place within Hades, he was a perfect choice for this card.

Card Meaning

On her throne surrounded by the ocean’s bounty, the serene queen stares out into the water where she connects with her subconscious mind and receives messages from her higher self. The cup in front of her is covered with feathers and represents her inner thoughts. The Queen of Cups denotes loving, intuitive energy that may be found in an older woman in your life during a time that you seek healing.
