Tarot Tuesday's Big Reveal for November 26, 2019

It's time for our big reveal! For those who haven't done so, please go to the Facebook page and choose your card. Yes, they are both from the same deck. It's time for us to move to a deeper level.

The deck is The Vanessa Tarot from Lynyrd Narcisso. It's a cute deck with lots of empowering female images, and I've used it for years for client readings. I adore it, and it's really not very expensive.

Note: I only feature decks for your pleasure. I don't make any money by recommending them to you.

Ok, onward!

Card 1: The Hierophant

Have you joined a group that makes you feel like you belong? Are you following a course of instruction that has you deeply immersed in a new way of looking at life? Have you developed a newfound interest in your cultural heritage? Has work or family recently forced you to conform to certain standards? Is a person in your life or a philosophy you are interested in pushing you to behave to a norm? Expect to see The Hierophant card in your Tarot reading if you are submitting your individuality (consciously or unconsciously) to a group, a cause or an ideal.

In the present position, The Hierophant represents you following a new belief system. Perhaps you are volunteering for a political cause or attending religious services regularly after years of not doing so. The loss of some individuality in your life may be offset by the great feeling of being a part of something much bigger than yourself. Sticking to a new diet or workout routine is a manifestation of the conformity of the Hierophant card that is also self-improvement. Note that in this deck, rather than the Pope, we have more of a "hot teacher" icon. This denotes that learning can be fun, and so can some amount of conformity to a group setting, even a wild one ;)

Card 2: The Page of Swords

This card is traditionally entitled The Page, but in some modern decks appears as a Princess. The traditional interpretation is about a messenger, an emissary, or liaison between separate camps, charged with faithfully representing one side's communications to the other. Because of this role, we do not think of this person as a servant, but rather as a diplomat, facilitating sensitive negotiations, often under difficult conditions.

This person is acting as the eyes and ears of her patron, and so she is sometimes referred to as The Watchman. Even kings are powerless, if this messenger chooses to use her access to sensitive information for her own gain, as is implied by her other name, The Spy.

She could even be working as a double agent, playing both sides against each other to serve her own agenda. Her title is really camouflage in itself, serving as protective coloration so she can move among the people unrecognized, collecting information anonymously. Her vigilance often conceals an ulterior motive. She is a watcher who must herself be watched, because she dreams of someday taking matters into her own hands, preempting the plans of her employers.

In the Vanessa Tarot, you see a young girl, dressed up and playing. This tends to negate the intensity of "The Spy" aspect, and tends toward more of the lighter side of this card. It's more of an invitation to the playful side of communication, and not to take things too personally.

What did you get from the card? How can I help you further? Let's chat on the Facebook page, or feel free to message me directly. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
