This post is a mix of things coming up, and a short Tarot reading. We will lead off with the “High Deck”, from Arthur Amberstone and Wald Amberstone. I have this lovely deck in hand, but have not started reading the companion book or working with the cards yet. Subtitled “A New Universe Of Symbols”, its very being is symbolic. It is a work that developed between Wald Amberstone and his father, Arthur, which to me means a great deal. That Wald was able to bring this into the world to share with others is a true gift!
Please excuse the image for this deck … my copy is on its way, and I could not find a better pic! This lovely deck, from Carrie Paris and Roz Foster, is a traditional Lenormand deck. Each card features a French title with an English translation. I very much look forward to both reviewing it and working with it!
The following is something very new for me … so new that I am not sure that I am qualified to review it! Many of you will recognize Jordan Hoggard as the creative force behind the Mystereum Tarot. He has begun what is planned as a ten volume story series entitled “Prescient Remembrance”. Done in poetry format (which is where the “I am not qualified to review this.” comes in), it is about the centuries long search of a Vampire. I have volumes One and Two, and they are riveting! See more here – “Prescient Remembrance“.
These are things that are upcoming. For “real time”, I would like to do a three card reading. I will focus it on relationship, as that is such a large part of any readers work. I defined the cards as follows:
1. Partner Number One
2. Partner Number Two
3. The Relationship Between Them
Cards drawn, from the “Steele Wizard Tarot” (Pamela Steele, Second Edition, 2006
2. King of Wands
3. Five of Pentacles
There is indeed some stuff going on here! Partner Number One feels that the relationship is out of balance in some way, and needs to be corrected. Partner Number Two is showing some strong fiery energy – he wants his own way! Their relationship is in a bit of chaos – each partner seems to feel isolated, and there are underlying issues of personal insecurity, as well as financial/material insecurity.
I drew one more card – the energy this couple could use to bring their relationship into balance. The card drawn was the Five of Wands. Now, how is chaotic energy going to be used to balance chaotic energy? he first thing we want to look at is the energy of the suits – we are balancing a very earthy energy with the energy of Fire. We are adding passion to the mix! We are also adding a sense of competition and conflict. If these individuals are willing to look at what is causing the conflict in their relationship, they can move forward. Once they realize they are not in competition, that they function as a couple, they can move past their personal insecurities and work on the financial issues.
