THE CARD’S STORY BY: SUE RUNDLES-HUGHES

In my illustration, an aged woman is sitting in her garden, in front of an archway that leads to her home. She is visited by the Chinese Sanxing (the three deities): Shou, Lu and Fu. Shou is the god of longevity and is recognized by his high, domed forehead. He is always smiling and friendly and carries a peach of immortality. Lu is the god of status and success and Fu is the god of good fortune and prosperity. Fu cradles the woman’s grandchild in his arms and another grandchild is entertaining them with her happy chatter. The woman watches on, content and smiling, while petting the family dog. In the distance there are two people walking towards the family house. These could be her adult children or memories of the woman’s younger self with her husband.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

A family is visited by the Sanxing, who bring with them prosperity, health and success, bringing in turn peace of mind. Contentment for themselves, and happiness that their young family will be protected and secure as they age. All your hard work is paying off – success is on its way, bringing to your life not just stability and comfort, but even greater opportunity. Chances to build on what you have already created, if you choose to take advantage of your own momentum. To go further than you had ever thought, and make not only your dreams come true, but those of your family too.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: SANXING

In Chinese mythology, Fu, Lu and Shou are three deities collectively referred to as Sanxing (the three stars). Th ey are the gods of prosperity, status and health, and statues of them are considered very lucky to have in your home, offi ce or community, especially around Chinese New Year. Lu Xing in particular is associated with family, and bringing luck to childless couples trying for a baby, so this collective of gods felt like a wonderful fi t for this meaning of this card.

Card of the Day – 2 of Pentacles – Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Posted on Updated on

Today is the first real day of escape from Mercury retrograde in Pisces. If you thought it was brutal, you would not be alone. Now that Mercury will be zipping along in Aries until the first week of May, there is much to be done. Oh, and of course, the Moon is now in Libra, where we will have a Full Moon at 29° in two days.

The 2 of Pentacles is all about maintaining balance in your life, as in between work and home, managing to keep your priorities straight, and making it all look effortless at times. Between Mercury and the Moon (after all, Libra is all about balance) you will be moving to beat the band. This card very often depicts holding it all together, in spite of chaos in the background. Now that we are in Full Moon territory, there will be no shortage of chaos, with Uranus in the mix, adding a surprise element to things. Jupiter will also be around, being wonderfully supportive, so chances are, all will be fine.

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – Page of Swords – Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Posted on Updated on

Mental thinking and communications grow stronger over today and tomorrow as Mercury leaves shadow and moves on into the sign of Aries. It has been months since Mercury has been in a position this good, and you will be raring to go in the next twenty-four hours, ready to take on challenges and get things done.

The Page of Swords is not only a messenger, but also a very curious sort, in a curiosity killed the cat kind of way. With this card, the caution to think before doing goes without saying, for as the Aries energy hits, with the Sun already in the late degrees of Aries, the urge to move forward without forethought can be quite likely. Pause and ask yourself if your call-to-action is in your best interest. This is not an idle card, and if used wisely, much can be done to serve your interests.

See you here tomorrow!

THE CARD’S STORY BY: HUGH MCMUNN

I chose Eve and Adam for the image as they represent a relationship connected to our human heritage. I liked the intimacy and unrepressed transparency represented by their nude bodies and them lovingly sharing drink and the fruit of knowledge. I used the traditional element of the caduceus for its overlapping serpent mythology. I unwrapped them and let them curl in the background, using them to flow from the mouth of the lion to integrate the elements. My original idea was to place Eve and Adam in a traditional garden of Eden but pared the background down to emphasize the connection between them and the tender nurturing, offering of both drink and nourishment.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

Adam and Eve stand below a Lion headed, angelic figure as Caduceus style snakes weave about them. They share a drink and forbidden fruit. It’s a time for harmony, for working together, and a respectful, mutually beneficial partnership. Embrace this chance to support and be supportive. Don’t let barriers and walls you erect to protect yourself hinder you here. Don’t miss out on happiness and harmony. Inside, you know this has the chance to be a great relationship, as if your souls know each other already. Trust.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: ADAM & EVE

Adam and Eve represent the first humans placed in the world by their creator in Abrahamic tradition. Th e story says that God made man in his own image and placed him in the idyllic Garden of Eden, yet still Adam was unfulfilled. So God created a companion for him from his own rib bone and the two became “one flesh”. Together they dwell in the land of Eden, where they are permitted to eat of all the fruits in the garden save one. Their legendary romance and the snakes of the traditional Caduceus evokes images of the Two of Cups.

THE CARD’S STORY BY: MIKE TENEBRAE

I went with an ogre – a creature generally defined by base desires. But maybe some are different. After all, humanity is predatory in so many ways, the key is to rise above it and contemplate deeper things. This ogre, worn out from his personal crusade, tired from old wounds and long journeys has taken refuge in an old shrine. He sits down to rest and contemplate a life well lived, satisfied that it was for something other than personal indulgence. He lays his sword at his feet – a companion to three others there – and under the caring gaze of a mother and child portrayed in the warm glass, begins to drift away into a peaceful sleep.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

In an ancient tomb the Ogre, weary from his trials and tribulations, lays down his sword. Sunlight shines through the window beside him, a comforting image of family, but he pays them no heed. He is tired, and needs rest. No matter how busy you are, you need time to rest, or you’ll burn out. You can try to fool yourself that “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”, but your mind and body aren’t going to listen. You’ll make mistakes, and your mood will dip. Especially when your to do list is full, make time for you – walk away from it all, just for a few minutes. Relax and refocus your energies – when you start up again, you’ll make better progress for that time away!

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: OGRE

Usually depicted as a brutish and stupid creature, the Ogre is featured in many tales and myths as an adversary. They are named for the Etruscan God Orcus whose cannibalistic tendencies they are oft en shown as emulating. In some tales, villains who devour enemies (literally or figuratively) are described as an Ogre or as acting in an “Ogrish” manner. Being a monstrous character, they are constantly under attack, so we felt it would be an intriguing character for the Four of Swords.

THE CARD’S STORY BY: KMYE CHAN

In Celtic lore, the Morrigan greets the heroes fallen in battle. She is not kind, nor welcoming: she is impartial and fair, a sovereign protector from the Otherworld. Their deeds have been carefully weighed and found worthy of her attention, to be heralded through the land, and remembered as the stuff of legends. As such, judgement has been passed – for them, death is not only the end of their life, but also the mark of a new beginning. The Morrigan reminds us that fate is inescapable, and that our choices will eventually define our legacy. Judgement is a card that marks a time for reflection and change: to have the wisdom to interrogate our choices, let behind our old selves, and move on to be the better version of us that we can be.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

The Morrigan wanders over a battlefield, her crows behind her, foretelling the doom and death of the warriors below. Surveying the worthy, she also skews the outcome of the battle, her fearsome reputation well known, scaring the warriors even as she calls their souls to her. Life is calling you to take a long hard look at yourself. Be honest about what you have and haven’t done, the mistakes you’ve made. But don’t dwell on them so long that you become overly self-critical. Or use them as a sledge-hammer to your ego. You can’t change history, and you need to understand that no one is perfect, least of all you. But. You can learn from your past, use it to become a better person, then move on.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: MORRIGAN

Th e Morrigan is a war goddess who appears in Celtic and Irish mythology. She is a shape-shifter, and while she oft en appears as a beautiful woman, she is also portrayed as a hag, or one of the crows she favours. Her main role is as a seer, foretelling the doom and death of warriors in battle, but she is also associated with several other deities, and their identities merge from time to time. The judgemental nature of this goddess, calling to the souls of the dead made her the ultimate depiction of Judgement for our deck.

THE CARD’S STORY BY: CAROL PHILLIPS

I have chosen to depict an aspect of the god Odin for my Emperor card, primarily as he is known as the Allfather. He is the father of the Norse Gods, ruler of the Aesir. While Odin as a God himself is a much more complex character than this, he incorporates both fury and inspiration. He is masculine, battle-hardened and strong. He is a war god but very intelligent. In my artwork, ready to take on the world he holds his spear Gungnir up to the burning sky unleashing his power beyond. He rides over the mountains on his mighty steed Sleipnir. His wolves Geri and Freki run by his side, and his ravens Hugin and Munin (thought and memory) fly ahead, above him and aid him in the battles to come.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

Odin charges into battle, on his trusty eight-legged steed, Sleipnir, surrounded by his wolves and ravens. This is a measured, prepared action, his animals are his scouts – his eyes and ears, ensuring that he is not surprised, his strategy is not disrupted. You need to follow a structure – take the time to make a plan and stick to it. Use the opportunities in front of you, to exert your control over the situation at hand, and make sure you tie up all the loose ends. Don’t get distracted! There is plenty of time for fun and enjoyment, but only once the job is done, and the work is complete. It may seem “boring” in some ways, but it’s the only way to get the results you want…so decide now if it’s important to you.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: ODIN

Odin is the king of the Aesir, the gods in Norse mythology. He is a god of war and death, protector of heroes and welcomed the fallen warriors into Valhalla. He is also considered to be a god of the sky, of wisdom and of poetry, a powerful leader, to whom wolves and ravens are sacred. His strength and experience, along with his leadership of the gods, meant that we felt that he was a perfect Emperor.
