A Legacy of Justice And Fairness

A Legacy of Justice And Fairness

I decided to a reading today with the Visconti-Sforza deck in keeping with yesterday’s Sola Busca reading. This deck is one of the oldest complete decks around and I’m related to the people who commissioned its creation. Bianca Maria Visconti, a second cousin, married Francesco Sforza in 1441 in reward for a successful military campaign […]

Hypocrisy And Leveling The Playing Field

Hypocrisy And Leveling The Playing Field

The new guy and his minions are away at the moment curtsying and engaging in their typical hypocrisy while back home, the forces of truth are leveling the playing field.

The Arousing of Goddess Presence ~ Tarot for 14 April 2017

My maternal grandmother, Bridget Murphy, was from County Kerry in Ireland. She was Roman Catholic and no doubt named for Saint Brigid. But before this co-opting by the Roman Catholic Church occurred, Brigid was considered a Celtic Goddess. And she appears in the hidden influence position of today’s Haindl tarot reading.

Her nakedness denotes strength born from Source Presence balanced with her earthly self reflecting the influence of as above, so below. She represents unconditional love and the wild wisdom of the Goddess, acting with courage, faith, and […]

Will Justice Prevail? ~ Tarot for 10 Jan 2017

Mourning, power and justice comprise today’s tarot reading. Three swords point downward, one separated from the others by a tear falling from a wound. Haindl calls the 3 of Swords, Mourning, its expression solemn and simplistic. We have been wounded somehow and as depicted by the 33rd hexagram from the I Ching, we are actively in retreat. Oppression is […]

A Sense of Justice ~ Rune & Tarot for 26 Nov 2016

Justice, card 11 of the Major Arcana, and Fehu, the first rune of the Elder Futhark comprise today’s rune and tarot reading. A card of Libra, the Druid Priestess as judge sits holding a sword in one hand and scales in the other. Justice can be swift, yet fair. An owl, reflecting wisdom, sits to […]
