Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Universal Love, Divine Connection, Centredness, Serenity, Peace, Oneness, Boundaries, Disruption

Key Phrases

– Truly living in the present
– A feeling of divine connection
– A time of serenity and ease
– Power born of knowledge and understanding
– A positive emotional state
– The power to consciously project your energy
– Say ‘no’ to disruptive influences
– Giving life and power to shadows

Card Meaning

The Ten of Water symbolizes both a beginning and an ending. It is that moment when we let go of emotions that bind us to the past and find ourselves truly living in the present for the first time. It is a feeling of divine connection with all and everything, feeling and knowing that love dwells at the very core of our being, and always has.

It symbolizes a period of time when we can move through life with a serene sense of ease and fluidity, even when surrounded by turmoil or conflict – when the weight of past emotions is released, and everything flows in the manner it is meant to. Our emotional state now influences our life in a positive way that makes it easy to see and understand how powerful we truly are when we divest ourselves of emotional hooks to the past that only serve to limit and restrict us.

To know yourself to the extent that you understand why you feel as you do, and then realize that you have the choice to react in a different way, is to have control over the energy that you project. Instead of creating a reality that is a reflection of unconscious emotional energy, the Ten of Water lets you know you can now consciously project your feelings, and create a future of your choosing.

Have you ever noticed how someone can alter the energy of an entire room of people, just by walking in and smiling? One smile, a kind gesture, a moment of attention and genuine interest, can change a person’s whole demeanor in a heartbeat. Some people seem to have an almost tangible connection to everything and everyone, and a single word or glance can bring joy.

When the Ten of Water appears in the cards before you, she represents a state of serene grace that is achievable if you desire it. By consciously embracing a positive mindset and focusing on living a joyful life in this moment, on this day, and each day that follows, you can influence everything around you in the same positive manner. It is not about denying those influences that create discord and disharmony – instead, it is about choosing not to allow them to disrupt your life or steal your happiness. It is about starting each day with a smile, greeting everyone you meet with kindness, and focusing your attention on the things that bring you peace and joy.

Featured Card of the Day – 5 of Earth – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Easy Options, Easy Money, Connivance, Deception, Unnecessary Risk, Addiction, Blame

Key Phrases

– Avoid easy answers
– Think twice about taking risks
– Something is not as it seems
– Be honest with yourself
– You are accountable
– Do you gamble with another’s future?
– Consider the feelings of others
– Look beyond selfish desires and blame

Card Meaning

When the Five of Earth card appears, awareness is of key importance. Something is not right. Someone is not as they seem. Someone lies and deceives, and that someone could be you. Could it be that you are lying to yourself and those around you? It might not be a deliberate deception, but it is a deception nonetheless.

The Five of Earth can also symbolize the devil inside, who encourages you to take the easy eay out, to look for options that lead to instant gratification, instead of putting in the hard work that yields enduring success. Is his voice in your head and heart, inspiring you to risk everythhing for the chance of a quick buck or a momentary thrill? Think twice. If you choose to take a gamble now, you risk losing it all.

This trickster is the beautiful ‘con man’, whose sweet words encourage you to believe your own lies and deceptions. He caters to your weaknesses and addictions, dealing out easy lies instead of hard truths. He tells you to blame others for all that is wrong – disappointments, heartache, past failures, and missed opportunities – instead of taking responsibility for your own choices and actions.

Wherever the deception lays at this time, there may be some basis for your doubts and questions. Your inner voice is telling you to look closer and see beyond selfish desires and blame so you can perceive the truth. Be honest with yourself, or heartache and disappointment may well follow.

Featured Card of the Day – 2 of Pentacles – 78 Tarot Carnival ~ Cirque du Tarot

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com

Keywords

Balance, juggling, financial decisions, time management

Artist Statement 

“The Two of Pentacles is about balancing one’s life. In my image ou see juggling upon juggling. The cat dances upon one foot, staying alert, agile and patient as he juggles two pentacles in the air, also balancing the juggling frog on a unicycle, high above on the high wire. Despite all the juggling and balancing that is happening which represents the different aspects of life, they all seem to have a very content expression and look as though they have a handle on the situation. The cat has mastered the art of balance and harmony for a happy life. The elephlies jump carefree off of the pentacle and fly into the air as the froggies in the boats ride the ups and downs of thw water roller coaster with ease and enjoyment.”

Card Meaning

Against a frenetic backdrop, a cat stands poised on one foot, juggling two pentacles. Despite appearances, everything is in balance and the cat is calm and controlled. A tightrope is rigged between his ears, along which an adept frog rides a unicycle, while juggling. The circus is busy, but no one looks panicked – this is just the hustle bustle of a carnival, all the performers are masters of their arts. A roller coaster shaped as a turbulent ocean is behind the cat, expertly “navigated” by frogs in boats, and two winged elephants use the momentum of a pentacle to launch themselves into the air.

This card warns of taking too much on before you’re ready – balance has to be achieved and maintained in order to make sure that things do not spiral out of your control, while you’re juggling the various aspects of your life.

Featured Card of the Day – 5 of Cups – 78 Tarot Carnival ~ Cirque du Tarot

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Kim Sokol

Website: KimSokol.com

Keywords

Sadness, grief, disappointment, not all is lost

Artist Statement

“The common interpretation of Five of Cups contains a black-cloaked figure looking at three fallen cups in despair, ignoring the two upright cups behind him. Here, a magician mourns a failed spell that summoned only darkess, ignoring the bright light shing forth from the other cups behind her, ignored.”

Card Meaning

A conjurer gazes sadly, her cape billowing in the wind, blocking out the light behind her. She is lost and alone. Before her lie three cups, spilling out and emptying, the despairs of her life. In her grief, she can’t see that two cups remain behind her, upright and filling the sky with hopeful light. These two cups represent everything she still has and could cherish. Will she decide to turn from the sorrow and see the light that still lingers, or is she cursed to stand and watch as her life ebbs away?

This card represents loss, disappointment and grief, and how we face these. Are they an obstacle that stops us in our tracks, or a challenge to be overcome? While natural, wallowing is only cathartic as a temporary reaction. Dwelling too much on the past prevents us from moving forward.

Featured Card of the Day – 5 of Wands – Joie de Vivre Tarot by Paulina Cassidy

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Paulina Cassidy

Website:  paulina.ws

Keywords

Strategy, challenge, competition, disruption, assertiveness.

Artist Interpretation 

In a scuffle, Rumble the tree and Fray the boy have their own strategy about how to bring their ideas to fruition. Fueling the fire of debate, they clank their wands together. In attempting to define their objectives, they may choose to draw upon irrational energy, or they could put their energy to good use by bringing out the best effort in the other in the spirit of healthy competition. They’re the dynamic force between spirit and matter.

Card Meaning 

When faced with an internal struggle, you have the inner-strength to handle it constructively. Creative visions bring creative conflicts. Persistence and moral courage will help you overcome any obstacles. With the right attitude, conflict can be productive. Put forth your best efforts in attaining goals you’ve set in your life. With challenge comes the opportunity for learning, change, and growth. Outside suggestions can often prove helpful.

Reversed

Deception and trickery. Unnecessary competitiveness. Situations getting nasty.

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Paulina Cassidy

Website: PaulinaCassidy.com

Artist Statement

“Engulfed by the warmth of the Sun, a carnival boy and his friend ride a bluebird of happiness. Released from limitations, the young boy represents innocence and rebirth. The chill has been warmed out of his weary bones of the past, while clarity of vision and vitality gain strength. With healing rays of green and revitalizing rays of yellow, the sun touches every living thing. Dark days are over, and we are free to bask in its dazzling ight, and to celebrate achievement and vitality. The Sun provides the love of life to help us gain clearer perception so that we may live our lives to its fullest potential.”

Card Meaning

The Sun blazes, casting no shadows, as two young carnies joyfully ride a bluebird through the sky and over a gray patchwork wall. Yellow and green rays shine from this solar orb, as thes children escape the grey world below, reminiscent of cheerful sunflowers in our own garden. A bright flower spontaneously sprouts from the young boy’s hat as he rides past, reminding us of the life and light brought by the Sun.

This card brings cheer, just as the Sun brings warmth after a long winter, reminding us that all darkness ends. Your work is complete; it is time to celebrate your success. Life is good right now, and your confidence and joy draw people to you.

Featured Card of the Day – 9 of Pentacles – 78 Tarot Nautical ~ Tarot of the Water

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Lily Buth

Website: None Given

Keywords

Refinement, independence, self-reliance, contentment, accomplishment 

Artist Interpretation

“The traditional depiction of the Nine of Pentacles is a woman standing in a vineyard with a falcom resting peacefully on her arm.

To represent the falcom, I painted scales on her tail to look like feathers. The seaweed swirling around her is like the vineyard, while the pentacles (represented by sand dollars) float quietly towards the surface reaching the sunlight. The mermaid looks downward calmly with her eyes closed, content and comfortable with an inward sense of fulfillment and satisfaction.”

Card Meaning

A beautiful mermaid sits in a garden of sea plants and sand dollar shells. She rests, content among her finery – her garden is all that is visible. All her hard work so far has come to fruition, and it is time to relax and enjoy her accomplishments. One of the sand dollars adorns her hair – she enjoys her good fortune, but doesn’t flaunt it. Feathery scales on her tail symbolize her wisdom – she will maintain control over her wealth. Her garden will continue to grow under her care.

This card represents a chance and time to live life well, reminding us that we work to live, and not the other way around. Money is best enjoyed, rather than hoarded. Because you maintain this balance, your life will be fertile and abundant.
