Happy New Year!!!

I wish everybody a lovely New Year!!

Wrong expectations

Today is a special day! We became aunt en uncle for the first time!! The sister of my husband gave birth to her first child. A little girl named Britt. So special to end the year this way.

My husband is over the moon and that's so sweet. To bad he has to work today and his boss doesn't want to give him a few hours off to visit his siter..... Now we have to wait till tonight before we can see them.

Even though I'm am so happy with the birth of our niece, I'm kind of mad at my husbands boss at the same time. There are lot's of people working today, so there is no reason my husband has to be there all day.
He is always there and doesn't ask for a lot of free time at all. It feels really unfair...

Because I wanted to know what to do with my anger I pulled a card from my good old Rider Waite.
Instead of pulling one, I picked two cards. They just stuck together :-)
And when I looked at them, I could understand why!

I pulled the seven of cups en the ten of swords.
So, these cards show me the illusion we had about how the boss of my husband would react and the way it was feeling when he didn't give him a few hours off.
I felt my husband was beeing stabbed in the back.

The cards bought me in touch with my feelings of disappointment and that is what I wanted to let go.
A beautiful lesson at the end of this year.

I - The Magician

The first thing I notice are the eyes of the Magician in this card.
He doesn't avoid you, and stands for his case.
A serious and concentrated man.

He also reminds me of Merlin the wizzard.

Just like in the Rider Waite, this Magician has all elements of the tarot within his reach.
And he is actually using them.
He seems to control them, what shows he controls the different features which belong to the elements.

Above his head/ crown chakra you can clearly see a bright light.
For me this represents the connection with spirit.
His connection with the divine.

Interesting things from the companion book:
He is aware of the power of his will.
By learning to control his will and the elements, he can accomplish whatever he chooses.
The Magician's message is one of discipline and responsibility.

0 - The Fool

The first thing I notice when I look at the face of the fool, is that he reminds me of a former president of the USA.
I don't know if Ciro Marchetti did this on purpose, so I'll try not to pay attention to it.
Sure think it's funny :-)

The first difference I see when I compare this card with Rider Waite is the fact that this Fool is floating in the sky.
There is no dog or other animal to warn him for any kind of danger.

He is playing with te signs of the zodiak. In the mean while, he is balancing a ring on his ankle.

Because of his cloathing he reminds of the joker in a "regular" card game.
As if he is there to entertain others.

This card is about playing for me. To look at things in a playfull way.
But also about discovering and curiosity.

Things I find interesting from the companion book:
The signs of the zodiac all represent a characteristic, where he is playing with.
He can choose wich one he wants to use/ represent.
But, one can also come radomly to him.

The Fool's massage is to adopt a playful attitude in a serious situation.
(something I have to do more often)
It tells you that you are at a crossroads and you have no way of knowing where each road will end.
Pick one that strikes your fancy and set out with courage and a light heart.

New journey

Today I'm starting my journey with the gilded tarot.
As I put all the cards of the major arcana on the table, the richness of the colours reallly strike me!
What a power comes from these cards.
I've had this deck for some time, but now seems the perfect time to get to know these cards.

Home sweet home

Today I picked a card from the gilded tarot. A deck that I find fascinating because of its colours and amazing artwork.

My card of the day is Ten of Cups.
For me this card showes my biggest dream of this moment. Creating a warm and safe home for my husband, myself and the baby we are expecting.
When I see this card, I reallly am looking forward to the day we become a family.

Christmas skull grid

This energy grid I made for Christmas.
May it send you good warm energy!

Three of Wands

How great is the blogger app for IPhone!! This really makes it easy to publish posts. And pictures too!

My card of the day is the Tree of Wands from the Golden Tarot.

For me this card is telling me that I worked hard and now it's time to see what it's bringing me.
First look at the results before you go any further. It's good to enjoy the results of your work from time to time.

Because of my pregnancy I have to take some steps back at work. This is hard for me, but there is only one thing important, that's the health of our little baby growing in my belly :-)

My love for Crystal Skulls

Over 2 years ago I became caretaker of my first Crystal Skull.
I always liked stones and minerals, but the energy of the skulls was new to me.
It took some time to get used to the carving of a skull. I thought it was kind of creepy to be honest.
But when you realise that it is your own skull that holds all kind of information, it's not creepy at all.

Next to the kind of mineral it's carved from, every skull has it's own special energy.

I'm looking forward to share more about the crystal skulls with you.

How times change....

What a long time it has been since I last posted a blog..........
Of course my life changed over time, but my love for tarot cards did not!

The last time I wrote I was busy starting my practise. All that is behind me now.
I found out it is not what I want to do.

At the moment I'm 23 weeks pregnant!!

My new tarot journey will be focused mainly on myself :-)

Looking forward to sharing again. But also looking forward to read the ideas about the cards from others.

With love,
