Victory.

The world had been brought to the brink of total destruction. A victim of opportunity. As a spark waits for its moment to attack a sun scorched forest, so did they wait. Watching the world fall deeper into the darkness. But there were those who lived within that world, unaware of light. To be a victim had become commonplace. To be shown kindness was a foreign idea. And this was the place you called home. The houses had been painted black by the raining sulfur clouds. The streets were lined with ash. As you slept, they crept closer and closer. Now perched upon your front door. Wings outstretched, black as pitch. Adorned with fire. They consumed your home, brought you to your knees. And made you a victim one last time.

You could feel yourself running. Faster than you thought your legs could carry you. Weightless, not running, but flying. Circling the carnage. This new perspective. City streets, wrapping like weeds.

He carried you in his arms. Sometimes his appearance was that of a man other times he looked like a hawk. The sickle slung over his shoulder had you convinced he was the reaper. Flying you to your next life, death had taken you while you slept. But it wasn’t so. He was a farmer. His small house was hidden within a great field of wheat. The wind blew through the crop, making it move like ocean waves. He handed you a key and told you you’d be safe here.

All her efforts. All her attempts. Everything seemed to fall short. His position of power wasn’t earned, it had been given to him. He was resented by many. In time she felt he wasn’t worthy of her diligence and the decision had been made to move on. When there paths crossed once more, she couldn’t mask her disdain. She refused to acknowledge him. She couldn’t put enough ground between herself and him. So she fled to the other side of the sea, and vowed to end him if he ever tried to follow.

Do the ends justify the means? In leaving him, she in turn left everyone. Her eyes were distant. Her thoughts were vacant. Where some have actions, she has over reactions and a life of solitude.

Personal Reading for September 2011

As is becoming my routine, I did a tarot reading for the month of September. I used my Wildwood Tarot deck, since it is quickly becoming my favorite, but I don’t have a good way to scan the cards in or anything, so I’ll represent them with images from the Thoth deck.

First, I did a one-card reading for this current week. It’s a transition week; the end of August and the beginning of September. I drew the Six of Swords. Wildwood Tarot calls this Six of Arrows - Transition, and that seems rather appropriate to me. This week is all about leaving behind August and moving forward toward the next month.

So the September reading will be one card to give an overall view of the entire month (including the days in this transition week), and one card for each week after this week.

__________________________________________________________________

Month: Nine of Arrows - Dedication (Nine of Swords)
Right off the bat, I can see that this is going to be a difficult month. Tarot training has taught me that 9/S means Worry; Wildwood says Dedication; Thoth says Cruelty. Yes, it’s going to be a hard month. This is really *not* what I was hoping for my September. This month is full of challenges and events (like my birthday) that I want to go well. Wildwood’s Nine of Arrows looks like an archer trying to find calm and retain her bow and arrows amidst a whirlwind.

Week 1: Six of Bows - Abundance (Six of Wands)
This week looks positive. Abundance, victory, things are in order. I’ll need to soak up as much positive energy as I can this week, and keep it with me throughout the month.

Week 2: Five of Arrows - Frustration (Five of Swords)
This card is frustration and defeat, no matter how I look at it. Do you know how much I don’t want to hear this? However, it comes after a week of abundance, so it seems rather fitting, considering it is September, and I am a Libra, and my life is about balance.

Week 3: Ten of Bows - Responsibility (Ten of Wands)
Wildwood says Responsibility; Thoth says Oppression; I say: as usual. Not that I usually feel oppressed, but that it’s pretty normal for me to be harboring a heavy feeling of responsibility. This is an important week, filled with events I am really wanting/needing to go well. I’ll take the responsibility and forget the oppression!

Week 4: 14 Balance (Temperance)
Wildwood says Balance; Thoth says Art. Either way, I say: bring it on! After what looks like two pretty stressful weeks, I’ll be looking forward to some balance. Again, so fitting for me, for September.

In addition, I find it interesting that this month is all Swords and Wands! No Cups, no Pentacles for me? Only one of the Major Arcana, but at least it’s a good one! I guess this month is all about being prodded and swept along with the flow, and I’ve just got to keep up.

DEITY TAROT SPREAD

READINGS AVAILABLE– 6$ for Seven Cards. I meditate before shuffling and pulling the cards with candles and crystals surrounding me. My spirit companion helps me with the readings. I know when contact has been made when my candles flicker and there is no source of wind.  

 1. Deity- Six of Wands. This card could represent Dionysus. He is considered a patron deity to the mentally ill because of the ecstasy he casts. He is also the god of wine and harvest and later became known for theatre. This card specifically shows public recognition of an achievement. A celebration or party, which definitely fits the bill of lovely Dionysus.
 2. Negative trait- Knave of Pentacles. It kind of feels like he’s saying “I don’t have one” but this card tends to mean someone who is learning something about the physical world, resources, or finances. He might not help if you have those sorts of issues.
 3. Positive trait- Six of Pentacles. Giving and receiving physical resources. He can help you by giving you physical signs to point you in the direction you need to be. Just remember to give back– aka offerings.
 4. What the deity rules over- ((two popped out for this one)) Knave of Swords and Queen of Pentacles. It’s said by many that Dionysus had issues knowing his true identity. And that’s probably why these two VERY different cards popped out. But he rules over the land ((grape harvests)) and can help care for you when it seems like no one else is there. He stops your brain from overthinking and gives you good thoughts, fun thoughts that help distract you from the physical world for just a bit.
 5. Something the deity is associated with- Nine of Pentacles. This specific card literally has grapes on it. And it tends to mean accomplishment.
 6. What the deity wants you to know- Seven of Chalices. Honestly just chase your dreams so that way you can feel good all the time. Do it now. Don’t let what you desire be just that. Take whatever pains you might have and do something productive with them.
 7. What do they want from you- Temperance. Bringing together all the right things at just the right time and in the right place. ((You can interpret this how you want but it also kind of sounds like an alter)). Also, balance yourself– you’ll feel more magical.

Reading for @sleeping-galaxies who allowed me to share her reading for the question: Which deity might be around me and wants to work with me?

Six of Swords.

To slow down or speed up the hands of time is a losing battle, but that doesn’t stop you from fighting. In order to be victorious, embrace each moment. Do not mourn for your past. Look fondly on those days that were filled with joy. Anticipate the magnificence of that which is to come, but do not be consumed by it, or you may overlook the beauty of the present.

Can I get a story, please? I really want to see this deck! (I'm duchessofsongbirds, btw!)

The Lovers - reversed, the Six of Wands, the Two of Cups + Strength

She left. It was a cold day when she did. You missed her, yeah, but also, you’re enjoying the detachment. You still reach for her, in the bed at night. But you also play your music loud, the music that she hated. 

The balance is there, between lonely and free. You’re okay with that.

You’re not okay with the things she left. There were the clothes. They were never your style, so you gave them to Goodwill. Someone else can appreciate her love of bright colors.

There were also the other things, that were less corporeal.

It’s not like a dog, but it still follows you. You hear it click on the tile floor when you’re in the living room and shuffle outside of the bathroom door when you’re brushing your teeth.

You called a man about the not-dog. He was confident when you talked over the phone. In person, he turned pale.

You tried to offer him more money to stay (1 vs. 2 successes), but he refused. He left the money you had paid him in the mailbox.

You had a dream that night, of a man sleeping in your bed. He tells you that he’s been watching you, keeping you safe. He tells you that he’s there to keep you safe until she comes back. (1 vs 0 successes) You believe him.

The next woman you call about the not-dog doesn’t offer any exorcism. Instead, she takes you out to coffee. (1 success) Her neon-green shirt looks familiar. You enjoy her company. Maybe there’ll be more coffee in the future.

When you come home, the apartment is empty and quiet.

Tarot of the Day- 6 of Wands

The Six of Wands shows triumph, victory, and success in your endeavors. It suggests a person feeling exalted because of winning and finding the inspiration needed to move forward. Good news is the overall feeling in the presence of this card. There is triumph at the end of your road. To find it will require careful navigation and the removal of opposition, but all that you desire can be achieved. There is good news coming. Though it may be conditional, this change will greatly aid your pursuit of fulfillment. In a committed relationship, this card means that things are looking up. Suddenly, you are likely to find yourself feeling closer and happier with your partner than ever before. If you’re unattached, take heart - the appearance of this card can mean you’re about to enter a relationship with someone you’ve been dreaming about. Things will be going much better for you financially soon. Regardless of what is happening all around you, things are going to be on the upswing for you financially. Be prudent, however, in what you do with any increase. Particularly these days, it’s important for everyone to be prepared for a rainy day. Still - expect increase. If you’re worried about health, relax. Things are not as bad for you or the person that you’re asking about as you fear. There is an underlying, spiritual strength that will sustain the health of the person you’re asking about. Take heart. In the context of spirituality, the 6 of Wands can indicate getting in touch with deep joy and love of living. You are already on the right track. Get in touch with the joy inside you, and then share it. The world needs the gifts that only you can offer. 

Have a Blessed Day

picquery excels at methods of reading the future, however as someone deeply set in her intellectual ability, she refuses to deal with anything that is not presented to her as an absolute. in doing so, she ignores greater warnings that appear to her when she dabbles in both tessomancy and tarot card reading. 

examples being seeing the reversed six of wands in the unexpected, signalling a fall from grace and the grim in tessomancy.

littlemsfob  asked:

Hello!! I'm in need of a reading about my love life please. I've given myself 2 years to heal after my last relationship and now I'm ready for love again, is there anything I can look forward to? Is there someone perfect coming for me? (:

Sure I will have a look for you

Here it goes: the six of wands is saying you will def meet someone who will make you happy however temperance shows you it is important to draw a line between the present and past in order to fully appreciate your new relationship and also the seven of wands warns you about your ego. So try to lower your ego so the other person can find its place and have a say in the relationship. Hope this helps honey. Give me some feedback. Blessings 💜

Ace of Pentacles. Six of Wands. King of Swords.

Just as the earth will heal and take care of herself, so shall you. Know that every end is merely the start of a new beginning. See the glory of that which is to come. Be guided by your judgement and intellect, for both will serve you well. Be not burdened by the slings and arrows of your past. Know that brighter days are ahead. Project a light of love, peace, and kindness, and all that is good will in time find its way back to you.
