Chill not Chillie (as in the pepper)

I pulled the Tower. Somehow I didn’t really feel the imminent doom and chaos from it. What I got was the pretty sound advice to not lose my head. See, I love my head. Not that is it very pretty or even extraordinary smart, but it feels comfortable, I am used to having it. So to lose it would be rather irksome.

Very often I explode. I am a red-head with a temper so befitting. So I rage. I slam doors. I write angry mails. I cry. I calm down and get on with life. I am proud to say I never carry a grudge. My friends and family know this and bear the brunt of my volatile moods. I ❤ them for it. Thanks the GODS for people that don’t take you too serious.

I very often have to carry my head under my arm in shame though…

This week I am using a brand new deck (for me) the Fey Tarot. I got it with a book too.  It is published by Lo Scarabeo and the artist is Mara Aghem and the writer is Riccardo Minetti (who is just awesome) The deck is a bit Thothy. At least I feel like that. The book has some nice spread I want to try out later too.

This is not the first card I pulled from the Fey, just the first I blog about. The tower is usually quite ominous. Here though, I really like the idea of the Tower as a prison falling away, setting us free. Still scary, just look at those pterodactyls flying about, but also liberating. Time for some big changes we might not like at first.

My ordinary day is far less dramatic, but I do see it mirrored in this card. Today I took the final step and cleared out my balcony for the winter, took in the rugs and chairs and flower-pots, it is bare now, waiting for the snow to cover it. Sad, but inevitable.

When you know what to do but don’t do it

We are in mid-march and the days are getting longer. My question to the cards today was how to get more energy and light into my stuffy old life. The Aum tarot gave me The Tower. Yeah, thanks.

I have been meditating on the paths on the Tree of Life this week and this just happens to be the one I am on right now. Netzach to Hod. Emotional overflowing into mental structure. The breaking down on the structures here in this image is also a release of the spirit, the white dove flying into the red sun. I don’t think I ever seen such a jumble of crashing buildings as in this Tower card. Nothing is safe except upwards.


The Shustah cards gave me yet again the Red Fence. This is the third time I get this card. I am obviously missing the point. Or getting it yet not acting on it. Of course I know what needs to be done to bring energy and light into my life, the problem is to actually get down and do it. The Black pages are all astrological – not my forte. The Leo however even I know is a solar card, it stands for just what I am asking for, confidence, strength and energy. The last card is called Destiny and stands for intuition and already knowing the answer. Then that blasted red fence… That is the whole problem, feeling disconnected, locked in, not partaking in Life. It has to come down.
