My blog has been dormant for at least a month. It’s certainly not from lack of interest in writing or Tarot. It seems to be more of a time management issue. To rectify, I’m going to try more frequent but shorter entries that focus on two drawn cards. The first card drawn will be in a “What’s going on now” position; the second one in a “what’s getting in the way” position. This two-card spread is based on the first two cards of the very popular ten-card Celtic Cross spread and explored further in Thomson, Mueller and Echols’ The Heart of the Tarot. This is an excellent book that uses a simple system to take a refreshing and in-depth look at the Tarot. I will be referring to it often. Prior to each entry, I will draw two cards and briefly write about their general meanings. Card one will explore the question “What’s going on now” and card two the question “What getting in the way”. As always, I will also ask at least one question for self-reflection. I invite you to explore these cards with me, ask your own specific questions to be explored using this two-card method or comment on the posts. My goal will be to post at least 3 times per week… let’s see how long I can keep it up!
What’s going on: King of Pentacles – In this position, the King of Pentacles denotes current success. The King is the master of his possessions and production. He is in charge. This card highlights practical, financial or material parts of your life where you are in control.
What getting in the way: Page of Pentacles – The Page of Pentacles has sometimes been referred to as the card of study. In this position, ask yourself: Am I too comfortable in the practical areas of my life where I am in control? Would I benefit from an influx of new learning? Is there somewhere I could inject a fresh perspective?
