Tarot Tuesday's Big Reveal for April 16, 2019

It's time for our Big Reveal! If you haven't done so, please go to the Wildly, Witch Facebook page and select your card. For those who have, let's do this!

This week's featured deck is  The Witches' Tarot by Ellen Dugan and Mark Evans.

From Amazon:

"Here, the Hierophant becomes the High Priest, Wheel of Fortune becomes Wheel of the Year, and Judgement becomes Karma.
Based on the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith deck and filled with images that speak to today's magickal practitioner, witchcraft takes center stage in this stunning deck designed by highly respected Witch and Tarot reader Ellen Dugan. Featuring the vibrant artwork of award-winning artist Mark Evans, Witches Tarot is the perfect combination of Tarot and the Craft.
In addition to card descriptions and meanings, Dugan's companion guide features spell-enhancing spreads―such as the Triple Goddess Spread, the Four Elements Spread, and the Wheel of the Year Spread―that you can use in both Tarot readings and magickal practice."

Card 1: 10 of Wands

The Ten of Wands represents a situation that started off as a good idea, but has now become a burden. It signifies problems, responsibilities, being overburdened, overloaded, and stressed. It can indicate that you have a huge weight on your shoulders, and you feeling obligated, saddled, and restricted.  

This Minor Arcana card can signify being taken for granted, struggle, major challenges, drudgery, and duty. It suggests that you have taken on too much, and may be heading for burn out. This card does also indicate that the end is in sight.  If you keep going you, will be successful. 

Keep the end-goal in sight, and don't give up. Also, plan for a little self-care/mini-vacation once this goal is achieved. You need a break!

Key words: Overburdened, overloaded, responsibilities, stress, problems, weight on shoulders, duty, drudgery, obligation, saddled, restricted, burn-out, uphill struggle, taken for granted, taking on too much, delays, struggle, resistance,  lost your way, lost focus, major challenges, lack of fun/ spontaneity, keep going, end in sight.

Card 2: The Queen of Swords

The Queen of Swords can represent an older woman in your life, who will step in when you are vulnerable,  and protect you, or help you to overcome a problem. It represents being intelligent, sharp witted, witty, honest, truthful and candid. 

This Minor Arcana card signifies being realistic, discerning or skeptical; and it can signify that you will receive constructive criticism from someone, and you would do well to listen to it. It can also represent open-mindedness and self-reliance. However, this card can also indicate that you may be suppressing some pain or sadness from past events. 

As a person, the Queen of Swords  represents a mature female, or feminine person,  who is chatty, quirky, forthright, and supportive. She may be an air sign such as Aquarius, Gemini, or Libra. She is a woman who may have known loss or suffering herself; and has gained much inner strength and wisdom from her experiences. She is someone who will always defend those who cannot defend themselves. She has strong empathy and is a great person to have in your corner if you are vulnerable as she will defend you. However, she will not suffer fools gladly; and if you are in the wrong, you can expect her to call you out on it without mincing her words! She can have quite a sharp tongue on her at times. She is strong, quick-witted, principled, fair, funny, sophisticated, independent and capable and will not be clingy or needy.

Additionally, this card can represent that this is exactly the kind of energy you need for what you are facing today. 

Key words: Honest, truthful, candid, protective, independent, chatty, communicative, witty, funny, principled, fair, constructive criticism, strong, quirky, realistic, objective, discerning, problem solver, skeptical, intelligent, sharp wit, self-reliant, open-minded, sophisticated, mother, repressed pain or sadness, divorced,  graduate from the school of hard knocks
