  • The Element of Water

    This edition of The Magician is based on the element of Water. Water in the Tarot is about our feelings and emotions and in my readings with clients during this time, I see the frequent appearance of the 5 of Cups. This card focuses on feelings of loss. Perhaps we are all missing the many experiences in life that we previously enjoyed - the life we used to have. For many people, the loss is severe with the loss of loved ones, the loss of businesses and the loss of employment. It is also the emotional closeness, the physical hugs and the happy times shared with those we love that we crave. The symbology of the card tells us that we will have shared experiences of happiness again in the future. The 5 of Cups can also gently suggest that we focus on the ways in which we are still able to keep up our connections with others.

  • The Element of Fire

    In Australia over the Summer, we have seen the physical manifestation of the element of fire at its full force, destroying bushland, towns, homes, animal habitats and as a result causing loss of life and great emotional pain throughout our country.  However, we have also seen the positive qualities of fire as an internal energy that corresponds within us to the qualities of incredible courage, leadership, heroic acts and generosity of spirit.

  • Tarot Card Featured - The Court Cards

    The sixteen Court Cards are widely recognized as the most difficult in the deck. They are complicated. More so even than the Major Arcana, the Court Cards are people, with fully formed personalities that can at times seem contradictory.
