Wizard's Pet Reading

This week's deck, the Wizard's Pet Tarot (self-published, 2014), is sweet and playful, but still with the depth you'd expect from the creator of the Steele Wizard Tarot (self-published, 2007). 

Situation: Page of Cups

A little blue dragon stands by the seashore and looks innocently at the goldfish splashing about in his cup.  A week for emotional openness, perhaps even vulnerability, and some self-reflection.

Don't: Queen of Cups

Another blue dragon, but more obviously feminine, she sits on her beachside throne and gazes at her own golden cup.  As the card for what to avoid this week, I am reminded of this Queen's less appealing characteristics: emotional manipulation and smothering.  Clearly, this week I need to give myself and others the room to explore my/their emotions without assumptions about what I or they 'should' feel.

Do: XIX - The Sun

This card is a lovely complement to the Page of Cups, also speaking of innocence and joy.  A tiny dragon seems freshly hatched, still carrying part of his eggshell around with him as he sits astride a white horse.  As a recommendation, it speaks to me of bringing beginner's mind to all that I do this week.  And of being open to finding the joy in every situation, rather than worrying about all the emotional ramifications.
