Women's Tarot (AGMüller, 2006) is very different from the deck we saw last week. The images are in soft, warm hues, the pips are semi-illustrated, and the whole thing is slightly zen.
Situation: Three of Cups
white lotus flowers float on violet waters, with a green border to the
left. A third white lotus flower sits within a larger, orange flower
shape. The third flower has an orange 'frame' around it, and a pale
green, leafy background.
While I often see this card
representing female friendships and support, in this image I also see
the notion of a role model or mentor. Advice, then, to look for support
from someone with more experience this week.
Don't: King of Wands
some ways, the colours make this a rather watery King of Wands. Yet,
the blues and violets surround his shining inner core. As advice on
what not to do, I get the message to not try to bust through emotional
situations through sheer force of will, to not try to be in control of
Do: III - The Empress
possibility, drawing energy from the dark, from her depths, the Empress
is full of potential. She offers up the pearl of her creativity,
sharing it with others, encouraging them to seek their own inner
pearls. The message I get is that this creativity comes from a place of
emotion, and is nurtured with help, from the role model in the first
card, and from spirit.
Overall, then, a week to seek guidance in
order to express my creativity. That Empress may also point to
nurturing my boys, though the two aren't mutually exclusive. It would
do me good to be more creative in my play with them, too :) Now, who
could be my role model for that?
