This week I'll be using the Sun and Moon Tarot, created by Vanessa Decort and published by U.S. Games. I'll also be drawing from the Wisdom Keepers Oracle, created by Rosy Aronson and published by Seal Pup Press. Today's draws are the Seven of Wands and Aspiration:

          Decort describes the Seven of Wands as 'confrontation without compromise,' which doesn't seem to have any wiggle room. Now if that means we stick to our personal values without being willing to cross any ethical lines, that sounds wise. But sometimes when people disagree with our plans or ways of doing things, we take it personally. We confuse disapproval of our strategy as a judgment of our merit and worth rather than simply a difference of opinions and ideas. Yet having opposing views just means we have dissimilar preferences and has nothing to do with our value as a person. The Aspiration card refers to a strong desire to do something, but it is different from a goal in that it is ongoing and has no final destination. For instance, a person may aspire to be more kind and forgiving. Added to the Seven of Wands, we might consider whether, in our battle for what we want, we've lost sight of what's important. As Richard Rudd stated, "Greed is an energy that will compromise its own integrity in a flash to get what it wants, and this is its downfall."

Thank you for the thread, VG. :bubble_blovekiss:

 

I'm in this week with Madam Lydia Wilhelmina's Tarot of Monsters, the Macabre and Autumn Scenes.

 

It's brand new in my collection. I just now finished turning the cards over for the first time. I came across it last week while I was looking for a wonderful deck for my Christmas wish list -- but I didn't even wait overnight to order it. I couldn't, because I seem to remember missing out on it last year. The title card identifies this one as a second edition. 

 

My instant reaction to Madam Lydia Wilhelmina's Tarot of Monsters, the Macabre and Autumn Scenes is that it is strange enough to be shivery, but it's not horrible. My prediction is that I will be using the Lydia Tarot a lot.

 

(And I will put the Lydia Tarot Companion Grimoire on my Christmas wish list. :wink:)

This morning I asked Lydia, what is my priority.

 

Her answer, the Nine of Swords.

 

Wow. Just wow. No surprises here. Just the perfect response: it's time to deal with the thing that keeps you awake before... 

 

The Nine of Swords shows three ladies asleep on a couch. Pink in the rosiness of repose, two sleep peacefully, whereas, rigor mortis has gripped the third in alabaster. 

 

I think I spoke too quickly yesterday when I pronounced this deck "not horrible". At that time, I had not yet received the Nine of Swords.

Sorry I missed you guys!   I had a busy week this week, didn't get back until today.  

 

Wow, the Lydia's Tarot is very cool - then I went and read the thread along with the link.  Sucks.   Having a very close friend who is dealing with the same thing right now....hopefully they will get her feeling better.
