Tarot from Conscience (or the Traveling Moth)
A space for tarot reflection for the day, week, or moment it comes across your screen. Each of these is reworked intentionally for The Edge, from the egregore of GroupTarot’s Card of the Week, to center education, diversity, and intuition.
First off, I must share some new information regarding last week’s CotW.
Mid-week, one of Group Tarot’s community members emailed me saying they thought it was a bee. As it has pollen sacs on the knees.
In case you need a refresher, here is July 26’s Card of the Week.
Welcome back! Or good memory!
I kept being hung up on the critter’s schnoz. Such a long pointy protuberance!
Aaaand they were 100% correct. I found the book, and it is a Dilemma Orchid Bee. Brightly colorful and tropical, there are over 175 known species throughout the Western Hemisphere. It is sustained by orchids…
Which means what I thought were a type of daffodil, are actually Copper Queen Orchids.
heheh… autocorrect tried Queer instead of Queen. Sweet! I approve!
Also this week, I had people message me that they needed last week’s message.
One of the things I love about tarot, and being a reader decades into my practice, is that I rarely go, “oh no! I said the wrong thing!”
When new information comes my way, I am grateful! When I learn I was unintentionally incorrect, I am thankful for the new information, share the correct information with those who I need to tell, and marvel at the glorious complexities of holding multiple truths simultaneously.
This week, I’m a little surprised that my Morgan-Greer Tarot wanted to share Card of the Week, mostly because this is not a full deck. It’s one of the decks that I use when performing The Tarot Show, so as they end up in the hands of audience members, they do not always return to me.
I have no idea which cards have walked on.
Regardless, the call was clear. I picked up quite a few other decks to check.
They gives us, 7 of Swords.
Oh this tricksy card has been on a lot of people’s minds lately! Earlier this week a friend sent me a link to a churro inspired 7!
I find it interesting that this individual both has the hunched back and bended knees of carrying a lot of weight, or a snapshot of running.
What are they running away from? Or bending down from?
Is their mouth open starting to smirk or catching their breath?
Their belt isn’t blowing in the wind, so if they are running, it’s not very fast. Maybe there is some, don’t draw attention to yourself by running, energy here.
Why are the carried swords completely black while the two standing are shining erectly? Is their integrity more in tact? Is our runner or squatter, stealing from those with little or being a Robin Hood?
There is sneakiness in this card traditionally, and here, and begs the question, “what is your intent?”
There is a reminder here to give credit where credit is due, and to claim credit if you see your work being used without your permission. Remember to ask for intent before assuming it – maybe the individual using the work didn’t know and will be thrilled to learn whom to properly credit. Or not. But wouldn’t you rather assume b.e.s.t.* intentions to begin?
Or would you rather be pleasantly surprised by b.e.s.t. intentions? I’m not going to make assumptions of you, dear reader, either.
Sneakiness, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. As with most things, intention is super important, so check your own this week and ask the same of others, with love and curiosity for all.
About the Author – I couldn’t find a lot about him. Here’s a little something though: learntarot.com/mgdesc.htm

Recommended Reading – Something different! I always see this card as sneaking out of a circus, so one of my favorite fiction books is Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Get it from the library, buy it from your favorite local brick & mortar, or use my affiliate link.
