Over the Hump by Kate Mura of Group Tarot
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 Group Tarot’s Card of the Week, to center education, diversity, and intuition.
I’m back in the desert.
The strawbale house my parents and I built is on the traditional lands of the Jicarilla Apache, Zuni, and Diné (Navajo) peoples with many Pueblo neighbors.
Do you know whose lands you reside on? If not, there’s a resource below in this week’s Recommended Reading.
It’s been an absolutely lovely trip so far. Mom enjoyed her sabbatical, dad and I had belated birthday fun and I’m almost ready for Beltane Southwest.
Before I head out, I have a special event Thursday morning: How to Spot a Counterfeit Tarot Deck and What To Do About It, a conversation with Arwen Lynch Poe.
This is one of Arwen’s most popular classes. So, Thursday morning, 10am Central, we’re going to have a conversation on why counterfeit decks hurt creators, and what to do if you find one. Join the conversation live, Thursday April 27, 2023 at 9am Mountain/8am Pacific. Register here
All it costs is your time, and feel free to invite your friends.
Today, I return to Tarot for Alchemical Transformation, a gift from the fine folks here at The Edge Magazine.
We are given,
Wheel of Fortune
Expect high highs and low lows going into the weekend.
You might think about giving offerings to Fortuna, Goddess of fortune and luck, especially if you are waiting on outcomes that are important to you.
Daniela Manutius-Forster’s imagery is a bit different. There are tons of wheels. Tons of cogs in warm shades of oranges and yellows with some blue contrast and the faintest touches of indigo and maroon.
Some of the wheels also look like train tracks, so there could be upcoming train travel.
All these wheels are a reminder too, that we are all parts of a whole. Doing our part helps other parts work. As Jon Gahate said in a lecture this weekend, none of us can do everything, but each of us can do something. Stopping our work, our wheel, affects the whole, like stopping one cog stops a whole watch.
Whether we want to flow well, very much depends on outside circumstances. Sometimes we want to stop the flow, if it means interrupting racism, transphobia, homophobia, sexism, ableism, or the like.
Or we may want to do our work, do it well and in a timely fashion to make sure employees are paid and events run smoothly.
Circumstances matter, and how this wheel – I’m also seeing cocoa seed pods, eye balls, and a hidden Death Star – manifest, are very likely to change.
Indeed, change is one of the only things we can count on. As I’ve said for years, the only constant is change.
Remember, whether you stop the flow, or go with the flow, your actions reverberate far and are in motion.
