Mercury in Rx New Moon in Virgo w/ the Night Vale Tarot

The Welcome to Night Vale Tarot is definitely the deck to enter Mercury Rx in eclipse season with. It’s weird, it’s funky, and nothing makes sense yet it is exactly what you need to see and listen well to.

We open up with a ‘hey, what’s up hello?’ from the trickster king of Mercury Rx himself, Eshu. In the tradition of Ifa, the orisha Eshu or Ellegua sits at the crossroads, his colors are red and black, and it just so happens that his number is three. One of Eshu’s favorite things to do is play jokes that make you laugh (usually at yourself) and tell you the truth. It rarely ever feels awesome in the moment but when you look back, he is the one behind that slow self-deprecating smile that admits there was a point to it all. Mercury Rx in a nutshell.

This not-quite-mad maestro specializes in being able to hear the harmony in the cacophony. In this iteration in the Three of Wands, a fire burns behind his head (that he probably started) but he’s not looking at it. He’s looking at you. So what’s your plan? How are you gonna adapt?

Deck Interview: The Motherpeace Tarot

I’ve worked with the Motherpeace Tarot a few times before this deck interview. It’s been a tentatively approached collaboration. Most of the tentative was on my part however, as the Motherpeace hasn’t been shy or hesitant when I’ve cast the cards with her. I took her with me on my ocean vacation though, and after that cleansing energy and storing her with ocean washed stones I want to know better how to work with this deck.

Deck Interview: Experiencing Wonderland w/ The Wooden Tarot

I just received The Wooden Tarot and it is quite lovely with just a hint of intimidation. Decided to make the first reading an interview with the deck.

This should be interesting.

wpid-20150628_000734-1-1.jpgFirst impressions: not a single Major Arcana card, which feels significant for some reason. Lots of cards in shadow, and the STONES (Wands) suit seems to weigh heavily on this spread, which indicates concerns of an energetic, passionate and creative nature.

1.Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic?
SIX OF BLOOMS (CUPS) – alright then! I’m intuiting that this is a deck of memory- in that past experiences and a connection with my inner self will be important moving forward. It’s also reassuring, that despite its surreal nature, it is full of good intention should I choose to recognize it as such.

2. What are your strengths as a deck?
QUEEN OF PLUMES (SWORDS) [reverse] – okay, art like the one on this card is why I treated myself to this deck. It’s reverse position tells me that this is a deck of heart space, not particularly grounded in solid reality. Which makes sense with the overall imagery and energy of this deck. The crescent moons are at the top of this card indicating a creativity and opening up of space. I’m looking forward to see how this manifests itself as a strength.

3. What are your limits as a deck?
THREE OF STONES (WANDS) – not a deck of foresight. Got it. This will not be a deck that I ask about future scenarios, it’s wispy wily nature would probably doom me if I did, or at least miss important signals. I sense it’ll be good for unlocking current energies and evaluating where I’m at in a particular moment. Good for internal work.

4. What are you here to teach me?
EIGHT OF STONES (WANDS) [reverse] – here to teach me how to move with the energy of this suit, which its reverse position indicates I tend to resist. It encourages flexibility and quick creative action where I may be feeling like slowing down or getting to grounded.

5. How can I best learn and collaborate with you?
TEN OF STONES (WANDS) [reverse] – must resist the urge to ask too much of it; I feel like its a warning to accept the messages for what they are and not seek endless clarification once a spread is given. Weighing myself down as I move with this deck won’t work. (Seems all my decks continue to ask me to learn how to let shit go!)

6. What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?
THREE OF BLOOMS (CUPS) – the first card I could read straight from the art without checking my knowledge of the cards. Creative fruition, an ability to move with necessary flexibility, a growth of self (perhaps learning release, finally).

What an interesting conversation. Whirlwind of an experience this will be. I feel like Alice down the rabbit hole.
