Four of Arrows
Recharging after a period of stressful activity, work or emotional trauma. Allow time for the imagination to fly into the Otherworld to renew and rejuvenate vitality.
…resting so the imagination and spirit can take flight and rejuvenate.
A rest, a holiday, a cessation of activity, healing.
Feeling more positive, seeing the beauty in yourself and everything around you.
Four of Stones
A newborn fawn shelters beneath a dolmen as the midsummer dawn rises, bringing hope and renewed vitality to the vulnerable.
Shelter and protection for the weak or the spiritually wounded is the responsibility of us all.
Nurturing parental care. A roof over one’s head. A period of stability. Time to foster your tender heart.
Knight of Arrows
Quick, graceful and a master of the element of air, the hawk is symbolic of vision and power. The ability to fly and nest at high altitude and see prey and hunt from a great height brings a special reverence to this majestic and fearless creature.
In myth, hawks are wisdom and ‘medicine’ bringers. The arrow in the card is in steady mid-flight, its aim will be true.
A person with a sharp mind, able to fly high, be competitive, impatient, ambitious, focused, potentially intolerant and arrogant. A skilful mediator of new ideas. A watcher.
Seven of Cups
A time to honour what is dead, to mourn for what has gone and to learn the lesson of letting go, offering thanks for memories and being at peace with the past.
… a reminder of rebirth. Grief and mourning for a loss in one’s life. Necessary emotional release. An honouring and a respect for that life
Ten of Wands
The challenge of dealing with responsibility brings a need for inner fortitude and stamina. This requires courage. The weight of the burden may be heavy. Face this with resolve and welcome this testing experience with enthusiasm.
A feeling of being burdened, weighed down by the responsibility of work or caring for others. Try to delegate and lay down some of the load.
The Moon heralds a time of inner transformation, initiation or awareness. This may take the form of a seemingly random situation based in the emotional or spiritual spheres, but your inner voice may have been whispering for some time and gone unheeded.
Now your soul brings into your physical world the symbolic keys to the collective human subconscious. This may take the form of a desire to explore or study a doctrine, philosophy or esoteric pursuit, or the wish to explore untapped sexual energy and experience a tighter spiritual bond with a partner through honesty and the expression of your hidden desires.
From here you can begin to wrestle with the concept that consciousness is not within you, but you are within the consciousness of the uni-verse.
The Moon in a tarot pack is really concerned with the dark moon, not the waning moon, but the true last phase of the moon, when it cannot be seen at all.
A shifting time of seething darkness in which new life and ideas can be conceived.
The World Tree
The universe and all its blessings are available to everyone who seeks knowledge and wisdom with a sincere heart.
On every level, the cosmos has a generous bounty and gives freely of its rich nourishment and fulfilment. This may relate to material gain and wealth or to spiritual happiness and emotional security, but after the long process of learning, responsibility and rebirth, it is now time to bathe in the light of renewal, attainment and personal triumph.
Breathe in the rich air, drink of the sweet water and rejoice in the warming fire of the universal life force.
You stand at the centre as the Tree, your journey complete. You are able to draw on all the qualities from the other cards in the wheel, you are in balance, a whole person.
You are at one with yourself, your immediate universe, your own path and a greater destiny.
