Though various people around the world today will be celebrating Hallowe'en or Samhain, this round of the Tarot Blog Hop is going somewhere else entirely. Our wrangler, the Queen of the Court Cards, Alison Cross, decided our topic for today would be love :D
So, whether you've popped in from the previous post, or came backwards from the next, or just appeared here through the power of the interwebs, I hope you're feeling loved up. If not, here's a little spread to help explore love in your life.
L - What or whom do I LOVE?
O - What is creating OPPOSITION to this love right now?
V - What VISION will help cut through that opposition?
E - How can I best EXPRESS this love?
Deciding to use one of the decks I most love, I pulled out my ultra-trimmed DruidCraft Tarot (Connections, 2004, art by Will Worthington) to give this spread a try.
I love the new possibilities that are opening up in my life right now. There's certainly enough of them: I'm pregnant, about to move home, and working on an exciting new project, too.
OPPOSITION - King of Cups
Bah, the King of Cups is my sense of duty to finish my Masters dissertation, which is colliding with that new project. He is also a wet blanket, getting upset at the thought of leaving a home I have been very happy in, and worrying about the emotional impact on my son of having a sibling, and on the new child of having to deal with a disabled brother.
VISION - The Hermit
Hmm, seems I need to look inside to figure out what I really want. Some meditation will help clarify if the King of Cups is a voice I need to listen to, or just a distraction from plunging into the future. Studying what I want and what I can do to help grow these different parts of my life will cut through the emotional barrage.
EXPRESS - Six of Cups
I can best express all these different loves by allowing myself to remember the joys of childhood, by focusing on the simple pleasures that fill my heart. If it doesn't wake delight in me, it's probably not right for me.
I'd love to hear how you get on with this spread...
