Nine of Pentacles

International Tarot Day Blog Hop: Nine of Pentacles

  |   Articles, Card Meanings, Tarot Reading for Yourself

When I was assigned this card for the blog hop, I actually laughed aloud. Because the universe was most definitely sending me a message: “Stop avoiding this!”   The Nine of Pentacles is one of those cards that evokes absolute bliss from the person for whomever the card was drawn, because it connotes material success, abundance and financial independence.   “This is what you...

Card Focus: Death

  |   Articles, Card Meanings, Reflections

More than the Devil or even the Tower, the Death card breeds fear in those who receive it in a reading.

The Two of...

Card Focus: The Hanged Man

  |   Articles, Card Meanings

Mary K. Greer, who is one of our modern day tarot experts and author to several amazing books, calls the Hanged Man the ultimate reversal card.

Lovers tarot cards

Card Focus: Lovers

  |   Articles, Card Meanings

With my Sun in Gemini, if I go by Golden Dawn astrological correspondences, the Lovers is my soul card. But also, if I add up all the digits of my birthday and year, then reduce to a number under 23 (thus, corresponding to a card of the major arcana), I get 6, which is also the number to the Lovers...
