Sacred Isle Tarot, is fresh off the press. Self-published by its British creator, David Higgins, after a fair while on my Facebook radar it's nice to finally shuffle it. While very clearly a RWS clone, the fantasy-style art is beautiful.
So, what does the Sacred Isle Tarot have to say about the week to come?
Situation - Eight of Wands
deck is fairly female-centric, as might be expected from the name. The
traditional flying wands pierce a stormy sky, watched by a
shocked-looking woman standing between enormous pillars. Seems like the
week may fly by, with lots going on, and the warning that we may just
have to watch from the sidelines at some points.
Don't - Three of Cups
women dancing together joyously invite us to drink deeply of life,
celebrating in the company of others. Sadly, this is what not to do, or
at least not yet...
Do - Five of Swords
This man looks at
us challengingly, as though to say: "Try it if you dare!" The prone
body of someone who tried and failed lies far below. Yet, though it may
seem hard to gather our thoughts, and to win through with our
arguments, that is the gauntlet we are to run this week. We may not
always succeed, yet it is better to try than to simply stand by
passively or hide in emotionally easy pursuits.
reading feels useful to me in a couple of different ways. For one
thing, I sometimes see the 'Don't' card as a 'Not yet' message. With my
elder son going in for surgery, I get the message that it won't yet be
time to celebrate, as he has a second surgery booked at the end of next
week, too! So, we'll keep going, despite the challenges, and gather any
advice or positivity we can get for the next part.
level, I also see the advice to keep battling on, trying to make time
for my own projects in the face of all that's going on around me. Keeping busy will also help take my mind off the impending surgery, and hopefully this week I'll be able to do some fun (divination) work, as well as the regular work which took up most of last week.
