A little midweek round up ...
Firstly - Formula 1. A very assured race from our King of Swords, Lewis Hamilton, don't you think? Poor Daniel Ricciado is suffering at the whims of The Moon, and I still believe Nico Rosberg is on the up and up (Wheel of Fortune). The three posts prior to this one have ALL the draws for the teams, the drivers and the race calendar. The next race is at the next weekend in Bahrain, where I have drawn Lady of Leviathans (Queen of Pentacles) - will it be the positive points of the Lady, organised, helpful trustworthy? Or her flip side where things are a bit sloppy..... can't wait!
In my Tarot life I have achieved something I'm enormously chuffed about....I am now an Endorsed reader for TABI (Tarot Association of the British Isles). This has meant working with a mentor overseeing 25 readings. Everyone, no matter how experienced they are at reading the cards, has to go through this process in order to read for TABI. I found it a fascinating experience; I was teamed with a mentor with a very different style from mine, but the combination worked well (I drew The Sun, when I asked how the mentoring would go!)
It feels good to be flying solo! Reading requests come in from all over the world and cover every topic.
I have also updated my own 'Tarot' tab with a 'Buy Now' button and explain how to book a reading with me and the decks I work with. Do take a look :-)
As a treat for making it through the endorsement process, I bought the Osho Zen Tarot. There is a lot of love for this deck and I've been curious about it for a while. Meditation is a regular thing in the Treewitch house so I'm hoping to gel with the atmosphere of the cards. I thought I'd share some daily cards with you as I get to know them. In the book that comes with the deck each card is given a commentary about its meaning plus some text from Osho to meditate on and add as much depth as you wish. The artistry is beautiful - it's by Deva Padma, who lived in the Osho compound and worked with Osho's and other community members' guidance on the cards. They arrived yesterday so my thoughts and impression are brand new!
I drew Inner Voice as my guidance for the day. There's definitely a High Priestess feel about the card - the crescent moon (which we have right now) and the two pillars seen here as dolphins. The water isn't hidden as in some other depictions and I feel drawn and welcomed into the deep pool of the subconscious. I like the crystal in the centre, which the book tells of finding clarity. The two faces seem to show how I may appear outwardly to the world, whilst honouring my inner self and the treasure (the crystal) held inside.
Where I live in the south east of England, we are currently swathed in a Saharan dust cloud, whipped up by a sand storm and carried over to Europe. The advice is to stay indoors today if possible, which is fine by this mild agoraphobic! I shall be still and silent and listen to what my inner voice may reveal ...
'Til next time,
