The right use of will – reading for 2018

Posted on Jan 3, 2018 in Spiritual living, Tarot

Two of Wands from the Thoth TarotLast year I drew the nine of cups, the card of happiness and, traditionally, of wish fulfilment. This couldn’t have proved truer for me as on the new moon before the Winter Solstice of 2017 we finally moved to our dream home in West Wales, surrounded by woods and serenaded by a musical stream. I wonder if you too came to an understanding of what happiness looks like for you, and did you find ways to create it for yourself? If not, perhaps the card for this year holds the key for you.

The card representing the energy for 2018 is the Two of Wands – subtitled Dominion.

You’re the answer – reading for 2017

9 of Cups in the Thoth Tarot deckFor most of us 2016 was a challenging year of incredible highs and the deepest of lows. The intensity of the energetic shifts has been tough on our physical bodies as they have struggled to integrate the frequencies that our spirits have welcomed so warmly and easily. My sense was that for the last 12 months we’d been journeying through a transforming but sometimes searing fire and that the new year would offer some respite from this, so I was delighted to turn over the card for 2017.

The card I drew is the Nine of Cups, which in my Thoth deck bears the subtitle of happiness. Do I hear sighs of relief? Well I’m right there with you! The first thing that leaps out at me is that this is a key number of the divine feminine.

Loving the dynamic dreamer – reading for 2016

Princess of Cups Thoth Tarot CardMore and more I’m conscious of intention with everything I think, say and do. So as I shuffled the cards for my customary one card reading at the beginning of a new year I said to myself, “I ask that I bring through only information from the highest and purest source of light and love, and information that will facilitate the most powerful positive shift for everyone who reads it, and the planet as a whole.” So if after that advance warning you’re still happy to read on, then here we go!

My heart warmed as I turned over the Princess of Cups. I love the grace and beauty of this card which has a gently joyful quality.

The gifts of the Tarot

Tarot treeAs I’ve just booked the dates for my next Tarot weekend workshop, it got me thinking about why I love it  so much as a powerful tool for spiritual growth.

Although its origins are a bit of a mystery and there are many theories, my personal understanding is this. Ancient knowledge about the true nature of our spirit and human experience has been passed down through the ages from Lemuria through to Egypt, from the Druids to the Essenes and beyond

Expanding from a clear centre – reading for 2015

Posted on Jan 5, 2015 in Spiritual living, Tarot

Thoth four of swordsThere will be many glad to see the back of 2014, with its profound shake-ups and challenges, and so the card drawn for this year offers some initial respite. The Four of Swords is a minor arcana card, so this year is very much about how we practically work with and respond to the spiritual energies now streaming on to the planet, especially in the area of thought, belief and consciousness.

My first thought as I looked at the peaceful green was that the first four months of 2015 (through to April) are indeed a time for rest, recovery and a chance to breathe, if you felt bashed and battered by last year’s events.
