The Birch Rod is a tool of corporal punishment. It is a picture of chastisement and corrective action.  You will be admonished or asked to make changes or revisions to something, and so on.  Someone may be given one, three, eleven lashes and so on.  The point is that there is an end.  People can argue regularly, but it is not on an endless loop. 

 

The ring denotes repetition because it is a circle and has no clear end or beginning.  You are in a loop.  It does not need to be quiescent.  Cycles can wax and wane.  

 

That is just my take.  

Oh, I understand your point. Thank you so much for pointing out my mistake. I tried to use the phrase "non-ending loop" to describe the repetition in Whip card, but it turned out I was using the wrong one. What I meant is the Whip depicts problems that need solution or else it will annoy one's daily life until it's been resolved; my point is that without a solution, the problems mentioned by the Whip card will keep on going. Sorry if I couldn't express it clearer because I always struggle when finding the right words to express my point.

 

Apologize to everyone for my mistake 😥😥😥 next time I will be more careful when describing the meaning of the cards.

There is no need to apologise. You did not say anything wrong and there are differing views on this.


The Birch Rod does often need a solution. Sometimes someone steps in (such as the Bear or Lilies). Other times you sit down at the table and thrash it out. A lot of older decks showed a table (GoH, Leipzig, etc).


There is a folklore to the Petit Lenormand that is often lost in books - and I say that as an author. Rana will stand you in good stead.

Well, it's good to know I'm not alone in my bad habit of buying Tarot decks.  I'm going to have a total of 8 decks soon (not including the novelty deck I started with), as I just ordered 4 more.  I don't plan on buying any more for a good while, but I guess I'll make a post here if that should change.  

 

One thing I've decided is that every deck I own should have a purpose, such as what type of readings I think I'll lean towards using that deck for, based largely on what I feel when I look at the imagery of the cards.  I might want something upbeat, or somber, depending on the occasion.  Maybe I want something simple, or something with some detailed imagery.  If I want to go back to basics I have my RWS deck. 

 

When I think about investing in a new deck, I try to think of a purpose for it that fills a niche none of the other decks do...well, relatively speaking.  Any deck I own can be used for any reading.  Some just feel more right for certain readings than others, but once I have a deck that seems especially pertinent for a particular kind of reading, I don't feel the need for another.  Of course, I was able to think of a purpose for each one I just ordered, so perhaps this inclination is not the limiter it ought to be.  But, with any luck, it will still greatly reduce the number of decks I buy on impulse.
