Thoth Hanged Man Tarot Card

Although many of us have been isolated from family, friends, and the ability to socialise for over a year, now that the opportunities to venture out beyond our four walls or garden is available, there is a strange reluctance to do so. Many of my clients have said it’s been difficult for them to stay home (often alone) for extended periods of time, and yet now they don’t understand why they find the thought of going out and mixing with people unappealing and stressful. They’re more likely to not bother and just stay right where they are. I drew The Hanged Man Tarot card as a four week guidance card for a group I teach in yesterday, and it reminded me of this pattern I’d been noticing in myself and others.

Keeping it real – Reading for 2021

Thoth Tarot Five of Cups

After a difficult 2020, the ramifications of which have spilled over with us into 2021, the key to navigating this new year lies in the realm of emotions, imagination, and dreams with the Five of Cups. As a five, this card is not comfortable or cosy because it disturbs the stability of the previous number four, shoving you out of your comfort zone and into the inevitability of change. The only thing that doesn’t change is change right?

As the subtitle suggests, when you lose the comfort and pleasure brought by anything you love, whether that’s people, jobs, relationships, ways of life, or spiritual beliefs, you can be overwhelmed by loss and disappointment.

Self-responsibility – Reading for 2020

Thoth Adjustment Tarot Card

Despite the challenges I think we all faced in 2019, I was fizzing with quietly excited optimism as I shuffled before drawing my card for 2020. I wasn’t disappointed when I turned over the Thoth Adjustment (Justice in Rider Waite decks).

This is a major arcana card, so immediately we know that the energy of this year offers a chance for great spiritual evolution and will continue to ripple out significantly into the decade ahead. The immediate message shouts loud and clear to me, think carefully and choose wisely over the next 12 months because the choices you make will shape the future. What you put out this year will determine what you experience for many years to come.

Rebel with a cause – reading for 2019

Posted on Jan 2, 2019 in Spiritual living, Tarot

Thoth Princess of SwordsIt’s always good to see a Princess, as she births spirit into matter so that it can become solid and real. In the case of this Princess, it’s ideas that are being brought through from heaven to earth. Not only bringing those ideas through but, more importantly, putting them into action.

As you can probably work out from the image, this is not always a peaceful process. There will be some conflict and likely confusion as radical and rebellious thinking comes up against opposing forces still locked into tradition and resistance. So the activism, protest and uprisings we’ve been seeing more and more of in the world are going to continue.

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.
