This week, I’m giving my Original RWS a chance to shine. I’m not exactly a fan of the illustrations and colorings of this deck but then again, this is what most of the tarot decks are based from.
This morning, as I was shuffling my deck, I was thinking of what to ask my cards. First I want to ask what the energies of this day will bring. But deep in my thoughts, I was really wanting to know how I should manage my obsession with the tarot. Recently, I’ve been going on a shopping spree for anything tarot-related items and I’m beginning to worry.
When I pulled my three cards, I realized that my guide (or angels) picked up on my subconscious and answered my deepest thoughts. I got three major trumps, which is pretty unusual. They all speak individually but at the same time, they are connected with each other.
The World, like the picture portrays… has a figure who is enjoying herself. She’s apparently happy for the choices that she has made and she doesn’t regret any of them, instead, she is proud of what she has learned from her journey. I think this card is telling me that I’m on a right path and I’m learning the tarot pretty well. She is telling me to not feel guilty.
The Moon represents the strong influence of the tarot on me. This is very dangerous because it makes me do crazy and irrational things. And by crazy, I mean impulsive shopping of new (and OOP) decks. The Moon’s advice is to gain control again. Don’t be oblivious and weak whenever I see the temptations.
The High Priestess is the keeper of the esoteric. She is basically telling me to stop and think. She knows my thirst for knowledge and she is gently enabling me to continue my study. But while she wants me to progress, she also wants me to practice using my common sense. I need to consider important things that come into play with this kind of hobby (like money, time and effort).
Overall, these cards speak a lot of truth. It’s so easy to say these things but they’re hard to do. But I will do my best.
