THE CARD’S STORY BY: JAYDE HILLIARD

I decided to illustrate an Iroquois story called Three Brothers Who Followed the Sun, one of the surviving Native American stories which we are fortunate enough to be able to read and listen to today. In the card, you see that the brothers have departed the shores of their home, leaving behind vases (representing the cups) that were molded by the hands of their family. While some versions of this story has the brothers eventually living the rest of their lives contentedly in the spirit world, hunting and never tiring, others do not have such a positive ending and convey that the brothers are killed after returning home from their journey and telling their family about what they saw while they followed the sun.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

Three figures, three brothers, sail off into the horizon in a canoe together. Bored of their current life, they are travelling towards the sun, behind them, eight jars lie, cast aside like detritus. Up, up and away! It’s time for you to take your leave, and move onto bigger and better things. Yes, you’ll miss the old ways, but you know this is the right decision for you. It’s far better to take the risk now, to go and be happy, while fondly remembering the past, than stagnate, and end up resenting that you stayed. No matter how safe and familiar your current life, your new one will be better, and deep in your heart, you know it.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: THREE BROTHERS WHO FOLLOWED THE SUN

The Three Brothers Who Followed the Sun is an Iroquois sun myth. There are variations, but the story is told that three brothers, who were unmarried, spent their lives as huntsmen. But as the years passed, they tired of the hunt, and became dissatisfied. One brother suggested that they travel to the edge of the world. Their journey was longer and more complex than they expected, but eventually they got to where the sun dips under the sky’s edge. Two brothers made it, unfortunately the other only in spirit form as the sun came down too fast for him. Leaving their old lives to make positive changes make this legend a perfect one for the card.

THE CARD’S STORY BY: MONIKA PTOK-BYARD

This past summer I got to visit a friend’s vineyard and learn all about wine and the plants and what it takes to grow them. It inspired me to say the least and I decided to make the Nine of Pentacles a Green Man (or a Green Woman in this case). This is a card about being self-sufficient, enjoying the luxury of what you have and how hard you have worked for it, so this Green Woman is basking in her own growth, her lush leaves and growing grapes.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

Satisfied, even proud, a Green Woman looks out on the fruits of her labors. She has tended the vines, and now the harvest is more than even she ever expected. A falcon perches at her head, content and controlled, a symbol of her intellectual power. There’s always more you could be doing, but that doesn’t mean you should. You need downtime, to treat yourself, to remind yourself of the reasons WHY you work so hard. So stop, and relax, take the time to celebrate your achievements, to enjoy the success and independence that you’ve earned, secure in the knowledge that as long as you continue to work hard, you will continue to be able to treat yourself on occasion.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: GREEN MAN (WOMAN)

Dating back as far as ancient Roman architecture, there are many depictions of the Green Man in relation to Dionysus the leaf-crowned lord of the wilderness. These leaf-faced figures are thought to represent nature spirits and deities from a range of mythologies, including the folklore figures celebrated on May Day in Europe, the Celtic nature god Cernuous, and Pan in Greek mythology. Th e fruitfulness of this figure, with leaves literally covering his (or in this case her) face made us feel that she was an ideal image for this card.

Card of the Day – 7 of Pentacles – Friday, June 14, 2019

Posted on Updated on

Life is like a garden; you reap what you sow. What seeds did you plant back on the Gemini New Moon? Have you undertaken new projects? The 7 of Pentacles would be a good indicator that you have, and that now is a good time to stop and assess how you have been feeding your projects thus far. A great garden takes time, and it does not produce immediate results, but with loads of tender loving care, it can thrive and become something magnificent.

This is a time of assessment, of cultivation, and making certain that you are giving the proper energy where it is due. Perhaps you need to weed out a couple of things, but I would not do so just yet. This is a slightly longer-range cycle you are in at the moment, so the results you are attempting to produce will happen over time, giving you the opportunity to tweak a few things along the way. When the rewards represented by this card show up, indeed there will be a bountiful harvest.

See you here tomorrow!

THE CARD’S STORY BY: NATACHA CHOHRA

In Greek mythology, The Three Graces, were beautiful young goddesses of such things as charm, beauty, and creativity. In this card, the three young maidens dance in a circle with their golden cups upraised in a toast of joy. They are arm in arm, connected in friendship and love. The cups are overflowing with a precious liquid and the ground is covered with fruit and vegetables representing a sense of abundance. The Three of Cups is a card of celebration, accomplishment, joy beauty and love. The message of this card is that the Universe is looking out for you and you are about to be blessed with a period of success and joy. Time to celebrate!

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

The Three Graces Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia, daughters of Zeus, dance arm in arm in celebration and friendship, holding aloft their cups. Spend time with your tribe. Revel in the love and laughter that flows between you, the teasing and “in jokes” that only friendships like these can bring. Feel free to be yourself, knowing that you are loved, and not judged. In a world where friends are often far away, reach out to those you’ve not spoken to in a while, appreciating that even after weeks, your conversation will start up as though you’ve never been apart.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: THE THREE GRACES

In Greek mythology the Three Graces are daughters of Zeus in the majority of myths, although their parentage seems to change in some tales. They are considered to be minor goddesses usually representing the values of grace, charm and beauty and most oft en being associated with the goddess Aphrodite, whose robes they are said to have craft ed. Th e Graces were inspirational figures, oft en inspiring artists (though not to be confused with the Muses) and were said to dance for the Gods and bestow joy and happiness on any who saw them, which makes them perfect friends for this card.

THE CARD’S STORY BY: NELLEKE SCHOEMAKER

For this card I chose to make a fierce and colorful dragon queen. I’ve replaced the often black cat by a dragon, and she has a magical wand. I didn’t want to add sunflowers, but I did add flowers with the symbolising yellow color, and a circle that also symbolises the sunflowers. Further, I made her a Mythical dragon lady with horns and magical crystals. THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN Blue haired and tattooed, Tiamat, the Dragon Queen stands before a mystical symbol, her throne, a representation of her power. Waiting, almost apprehensive, her dragon kin cradled in her arms, a wand at the ready as she stands guard. In a world of normality and the ordinary, you are extraordinary. Believe in yourself, let your enthusiasm and positivity, your independence and motivation soar, and see for yourself the beauty and brilliance that others see within you. You’re a free thinking, independent badass, bound to succeed and achieve your heart’s desire. Your vitality and spirit inspire others, and prompt them to be their very best. The Queen of Wands can symbolize a confident person whose assurance is understated, but powerful. A person of boundless energy, warmth, positivity and an otherworldly quality you can’t quite categorize who is in your life, or shortly to arrive.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: TIAMAT, DRAGON QUEEN

Tiamat, Goddess of primordial Chaos in the Babylonian and Mesopotamian creation myths, also known as the Queen of Dragons is often referred to in legend as a serpent, though she takes many forms. She was the chief enemy of Marduk and their battle is one of the earliest recordings of the tale of good overcoming evil, or chaos. Tiamat was said to have given birth to many creatures of the world, including serpents, dragons, merfolk and scorpion kin. This passionate dragon queen seemed a fitting personification of a darker Queen of Wands.

THE CARD’S STORY BY: SCOTT HOLLOWAY

For the Mythical themed tarot deck I had the Tower Card, so I decided to relate my image with the Tower of Babel. To emphasize the height of the tower, I wanted to show a low landscape, with the tower built on the highest point. The landscape is cracking open and drifting apart – this symbolizes the drifting of groups of people. The clouds symbolize heaven, and I placed a cloud in front of the tower depicting how the tower was reaching the heavens.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

The tower is on fire, the conflagration spiraling out of control. The only windows are all aflame and there are no routes for escape. It is only a matter of time before the fire claims it fully, destroying it from within. Something is rotten – you know this to be true, but you’ve been ignoring it anyway. But you can’t hide from it forever, your wake-up call is coming. It’s time to open your eyes and finally accept the harsh truth that your safe, secure existence is false. But how will you react? Will you dig your head further into the sand? Or will you understand that this is for the best and face it? Let this revelation liberate you, freeing you to rebuild something that WILL last.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: TOWER OF BABEL

The Tower of Babel was an amazing structure, a city and tower constructed to be high enough to reach heaven. It was built by people who survived the Great Flood, a way of keeping humanity together, working in harmony to achieve a common goal. But God confounds the inhabitants, ensuring that they do not speak the same language, separating nations and causing discord. It is a punishment, but the crime is not explained exactly. Th ere is obviously something wrong with the tower, or city, which earns God’s wrath in this legend, forcing the inhabitants to rethink, and giving us a model example of a Mythical Tower.

Featured Card of the Day – King of Pentacles – 78 Tarot Mythical

THE CARD’S STORY BY: JEREMIAS COLMENARES

I decided to use a Kirin, because the Kirin is the king of the beasts, so it’s the best companion for a king! This creature represents the abundance and prosperity of the King of Pentacles card. The King of Pentacles tells us of a man wise in control and in rich material abundance, so I decided to draw him with a silver beard to represent the years of learning, with fruits and gold coins all over. His rich armor and fine fabrics give him the royal and sophisticated appearance of a king, with a big gold coin in his hand, a symbol of his material influence.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

The King of Pentacles stands among his riches, a trusted Kirin by his side. He is not locked away in his castle, seeking safety, but instead, stands ready to defend himself and his property, whatever it takes. Success takes hard work. Your experience and achievements have grounded you – you’ll need that now. Find the opportunities before you, understanding that you need to work through the challenges practically and methodically to get what you want. You make it look easy, but you know just how much effort it will take… The King of Pentacles can also suggest a successful, but generous person in your life, or coming into it. This person works, and plays hard, remembering their struggles, and giving back easily as much as they receive, in terms of wealth and energy.

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: KIRIN (QILIN)

In Asian mythology, a Kirin is a symbol of prosperity that appears in a wide range of cultures, including Vietnamese, Thai, Korean, Japanese and Chinese. These hooved creatures appear in different forms, from dragons, to deer or giraffe like animals and possess great power. Given that the Kirin (or Qilin in Chinese) have a deep-seated connection to prosperity, and oft en accompany a great ruler, this was a perfect companion for a Mythical King of Pentacles.
