Celtic :triskele: Tarot

  • By: Kristoffer Hughes
  • Illustrated by: Chris Down

9 of Cauldrons (Cups)

Worry is a poor partner & ultimately futile. There are times when we just need respite. Looking at the card closely we see The Assembly of the Wondrous Head & which really is a severed head on the golden plate upon the feasting table. There is no pain present in this scene, & the head retains its ability to speak & feast. The gentleman at the head of the table has eaten his fill & is taking a well-deserved nap, content & happy in his place.

Our imaginations alone can take us to places & lands far beyond the worry of everyday life, but to what extent is this avoidance, & when does it become indulgent?

Reversed: In a reversed position this card suggests that you can’t party away all your troubles all of the time. Be truthful with yourself, be loyal to your responsibilities, & liberated from your worries. If you have made mistakes, admit them, do not conceal them.

Perthro :perthro:

Magickal Uses: Increase connection with the unseen world. Use in conjunction with Laguz :laukaz: to help increase psychic powers. Use to increase luck or use with Nauthiz :naudiz: to appeal to Norns to reweave fate to your benefit.

Overall Meanings/Keyword(s): Fate, Destiny, Luck, Illumination, Secrets, Transformation, Karma, Chance, Destiny, Divination, Choice, Primal Law

The ancient Norse were serious about gaming. The gods assisted when the dice were rolled. Either the act of throwing/tossing dice or other playing implements.

Little difference between techniques & tools of rune casting & gambling. Gambling was a passion among Germanic peoples. Testing luck was the same as their essential being.

Something to be filled & drunk from. Hand of fate through karma or Divine predestination is showing strongly in one’s life.

Power order & purpose behind the seemingly random events.

Intense forces of change from behind the scenes are occurring currently. Perthro :pertho: suggests positive forces unless shown with negative runes.

A reminder that not black & white is an oversimplification of fate into good or bad. The change referenced is associated with an infinite amount of complexity & subtlety.

Fate exists at a level we can never truly know what seems true may be false.

6 of Wands :wand_tarot:

Upon the dragon of your successes you are triumphant. There is beauty & light around you; you have been recognized by your peers & progressed wonderfully. Your self-confidence is apparent & inspiration to others.

Reversed: In the reversed position this card warns of an ego trip, quarrels, & maybe disrepute. It may be that people’s confidence in you or someone at the heart of the issue has faltered. There is shame in the reversed position of this card.

Advised to acknowledge that any adversity you are or have been experiencing will ultimately contribute to your growth you are who you are because of the lessons life taught you.

Celtic :triskele: Tarot

  • By: Kristoffer Hughes
  • Illustrated by: Chris Down

The Chariot

Behold: Within my Chariot rides the unseen wisdom of all that has gone before. I am the sum totality of everything that you have seen & been thus far. I originate from understanding & knowing, & my journey takes me to the fort of force & power. I am strong. I have the will to cause deep transformation. I stand for what is right & truthful; I am the truth against the world & its action in motion. I can carry you forward by the breath of a dragon to the plane of inner wisdom, are you willing to believe in yourself enough for this to become reality?

Upright: There is very little you can do to stop the onward motion of the Chariot & therefore the question at hand. This situation is going to roll forward whether you like it or not. It asks whether you can jump on & go along for the ride. The destination may be unclear, but the presence of other Major Arcana ahead of the Chariot will certainly imply the potential destination. You must exert your will & put it in motion; do not stand by & think that you will simply be caught in the drama. You must have faith in your ability to ride this situation to its required or inevitable conclusion. However, this is the last card of the Journey of Finding Expression. Look for clues that imply an onward journey into finding wisdom.

Hagalaz :haglaz:

Magickal Uses: Hagalaz :haglaz: is a powerful rune for meditation. Sit with this rune to understand that no matter how bad you have it, you could always have it worse. No matter the number of crops that you lost, you could always lose more. Chant this rune as you meditate to help find optimism in the direst of situations.

Protection, Luck, quick transformations, success in navigating difficult situations, break unhealthy patterns.

Overall Meanings/Keyword(s): Hail, Dark Feminine, Destruction, Transformation, Past Lives, Healing, Potential, Disruption, Change, Delay

Seeds of icy carnage rain down, planting points of clarity & choice. The shattered ground on which you stand cannot stay frozen in its brokenness: sprouts of life will emerge once the schism in your heart - & soul – has shifted, bearing a refreshed path.

Mighty Hella, lady of Hel, cradle me in your dark womb of rebirth. Breathe cool air into my hour of incendiary transformation. I cannel Urd, Norn of the past, to alchemize my history, honoring & releasing what was, in the name of sewing my newly-fertile fields of inheritance.

Hail can fall from the sky any time of the year, not just in winter. Just as hail can appear suddenly in a clear sky, this rune portends a very sudden change in your circumstances. This isn’t always a pleasant change either, but one that you will have to bear until it’s over.

We cannot always control our circumstances. Hagalaz signifies these forces of chaos that cannot be controlled. You cannot control or “fix” this interference; resistance is futile. Know that your course is being corrected for reasons beyond your understanding. You may be being forced into taking a new approach, which will become clear with patience & perseverance.

Celtic :triquetra: Tarot

  • Kristoffer Hughes (Illustrated by: Chris Down)
  • I shuffled the deck 3 times, took off the top 3, & drew:

2 of Shields Reversed

Keywords: Juggling act, Learning from relationships, Adaptability

The mystery of this card lies in the identity of the juggler. He stands between prey & by doing so keeps the predator at bay – or are these, in fact, elements of himself? We learn so much by means of relationships, how do yours define you?

Divinatory Meaning (Reversed)

Reversed, the shields cannot hold their position & will crash into the snow. Suddenly your feet will feel very cold, unprotected, & vulnerable. There is disorganization that has arisen from the fact that you are juggling for some cause that has become lost to you. It all feels too forced & false. Letters & correspondences may bring less than good news.

Mine was from the Enchanted Map oracle cards by Colette Baron-Reid today:

I drew the card Flying “You have the power to see things from a higher perspective.” I take this as in taking a step back and getting some distance provides a unique perspective on your life/situation.

Thank you for sharing @jan_TheGreenWitch, sometimes taking a step back & looking at it from another point of view can be helpful in your own responses & actions sometimes. :two_hearts:

That’s so true @Siofra_Strega , and it’s beautiful when a card shows up and you know exactly why. It’s exactly the push i needed to let go of a perspective I was being closed minded about in my treatment plan! I feel so much better!

Oh that’s amazing! I’m so happy for you & that you are feeling better. I hope it flows through the weekend & continues for you! :smiling_face: :revolving_hearts:

Rebirth
Statement: - My form is undone, but do not mourn, I will rise anew from the cauldron born.

Upright: The time has come to take a good long and hard look at either the question in hand or, in fact, your entire life. Rebirth (Judgment) is about precisely that: thinking of and making practical changes that bring about new situations. This is a card of deep transformation. Decisions have to be made, and the past must be put to sleep, placed in a box, wrapped in gingham cloth, and a nice ribbon tied around it. The time has come to stand up and say, “That’s it; enough is enough!"
But all of this comes about by means of reconciliation. You have found peace within the situation, and the time is right to move on. Spiritually, this heralds a new awakening, a coming into being. This is a glorious card with far-reaching consequences; nothing will ever quite be the same again.

@Siofra_Strega Riddle me this… I am a Leo and born in Aug and thought my birthstone sign is Peridot - then I started looking it up and I see it is associated with a couple of different dates/astrological signs including Taurus. Confused, help! :green_heart::leo:

Inner Child Oracle

  • (By: Amanda Lynn Hails)
    I shuffled 3 times, removed the top 3 cards & flipped over the top card:

IT’S TIME TO GIVE

It is time to treat yourself and/or others to something magical, mystical, & fantastical! What the treat consists of is not as important as the spirit in which it is enjoyed. When thinking of the perfect something, reflect on how it would make you feel. Does it connect you to feelings of wonder & joy? If so, you have got a winner!

@jan_TheGreenWitch sorry I missed this yesterday, I will have a think on it though & get back to you! Interesting find that’s for sure. It may be later today, but I will look into it as soon as I can :smiling_face:

My Santa Muerte deck:

Unconscious calling to trust our intuition above reason & rationality.

The imagery of 3s & the moon maybe connect to the sacred triangles.

Thank you for sharing again! I have a question about the image. :smiling_face:

Is that the “Evil Eye” in the background that is in the circles from the center? :nazar_amulet:

I think it’s the protection from the evil eye,
I think those are the eyes of clairvoyance.
