Mucha Tarot (Lo Scarabeo, 2015). I'll be using it again next week, and reviewing it on Friday of that week, as this Friday there's a Tarot Blog Hop for Beltane. There will also be an extra post this Wednesday, looking at the journey that brought me to magic. For now, though, let's take a look at the cards.
I'm not sure about this depiction of Justice. She
seems a bit too sensual and worldly. Add to that the fact her sword is
held at an angle, which symbolically speaks of biases rather than a pure
connection to higher truth.
Still, I take the message that
it's a week for being fair, for looking at situations in an unbiased way
and acting for the good of all.
Don't: Five of Wands
little playfulness in this image. These men wear helmets, and look to
be in a full-on battle! I guess they could be training, but it's pretty
hard core if so.
Looks like a week when battles are best
avoided. As Justice said, time to pull together for the good of all,
rather than getting into backstabbing or infighting.
Do: The Lovers
last card reinforces the message from the previous two. A man and
woman cuddle close, presided over by an angel with arms outstretched
above them, as though blessing them. The woman's breasts are naked,
making her seem more open and willing to expose herself.
some vulnerability and being willing to find ways to get closer to
others, rather than competing, seems to be the overall recommendation
from this reading. I'll try to keep that in mind this week!
