I’m using the Secret Tarot (LS) for this week. I noticed that this deck has the same lady appearing in almost every card. I wonder if the whole deck is a story about her.
My card for the day is The Queen of Wands. I didn’t recognize her when I saw this picture because the card looks so mellow and stagnant. I usually see the Queen of Wands as having a lively and confident personality. But in this card, she’s pale and lifeless. Her back is slouched like there is no confidence at all.
I’m guessing that this card is showing us the weakness or the vulnerability of the Queen of Wands. Yes, she is powerful, experienced and a force to reckon with… but she has insecurities too. So yes, she is a queen sitting in a throne with a lovely black gown but she’s not afraid to show that she’s human too.
Today, I was working with someone with a similar personality and experience. Very bossy, in fact. I knew that she was the person my card is talking about. It’s funny how I can see these courts easily now in my environment.
On a side note: My Tarot of Magical Forest (Taiwan Version) is finally here! No deck has made me smile and laugh like this before. It has such a huge impact on me. Not only did this deck travel from LA to Phoenix and back… and now it’s here. I like having decks with a story. =D It just adds appeal to them. I can’t wait to use and study this deck.
