Happy Ostara!

Ostara, also known as the Spring Equinox, is a pagan holiday that celebrates the arrival of spring and the balance between light and dark as day and night become equal in length. This lovely festival marks the beginning of the astronomical spring season.

Ostara is often associated with themes of renewal, rebirth, fertility and growth. It is a time when the earth awakens from its winter slumber, and new life emerges in the form of budding plants, blooming flowers and newborn animals.

In case you’re wondering, the holiday is named after the Germanic goddess Ēostre, who represents dawn, fertility and the rising sun.

In many pagan traditions, Ostara is celebrated with rituals, ceremonies and symbolic activities that honor the changing seasons and the return of life to the earth.

In relation to Tarot, Ostara’s themes of renewal, rebirth and growth can be reflected in Tarot readings and interpretations. The Spring Equinox is seen as a time of balance and transition, making it an opportune moment for introspection, goal-setting and planning for the future. Tarot cards associated with Ostara include:

  1. The Fool: Symbolizing new beginnings, spontaneity and embracing the journey ahead.
  2. The Empress: Representing fertility, creativity and nurturing energy, aligning with Ostara’s themes of growth and abundance.
  3. The Ace of Cups: Signifying emotional renewal, spiritual awakening and the potential for deep emotional fulfillment.
  4. The Ace of Wands: Reflecting creative inspiration, passion and the spark of new ideas or projects taking root.
  5. The Wheel of Fortune: Symbolizing cycles of change, destiny and the turning of the seasons, highlighting the transition from winter to spring.

Overall, Ostara offers a powerful opportunity for spiritual reflection, growth and renewal. It invites us to embrace the energy of the season and harness its transformative potential in our lives.

Remember, tarot readings are a form of guidance and self-reflection; your own actions and choices ultimately shape your path in life.

Celebrating International Women’s Day

March 8th is a special day in the calendar as it’s when women are ‘offically recognised’ for something specific even though we are awesome and amazing in everything we do, every day – right?!! This year, its theme is “Inspire Inclusion” and you can learn more about what that means here.

So which tarot cards best represent the brilliance of women and all that we stand for?

Well, there are many cards that could be suitable for International Women’s Day, as tarot is a deeply symbolic and intuitive practice that can be interpreted in many ways. Here are just a few possibilities:

The Empress: The Empress is a powerful card that represents femininity, motherhood, creativity, and abundance. She is often associated with fertility, growth, and nurturing, and can symbolize the powerful and creative energy that women bring to the world.

The High Priestess: The High Priestess is a card of intuition, mystery, and hidden knowledge. She represents the feminine power of intuition, psychic abilities, and the mysteries of the universe. This card can symbolize the wisdom and insight that women bring to the world, as well as the power of inner strength and intuition.

The Queen of Cups: The Queen of Cups is a card of emotional depth, compassion, and intuition. She represents the ability to connect deeply with others, to feel empathy and compassion, and to express emotions in a healthy and balanced way. This card can symbolize the importance of emotional intelligence and empathy in the world, as well as the strength and resilience that women often possess.

The Star: The Star is a card of hope, inspiration, and healing. It represents the light that shines in the darkness, and the power of transformation and renewal. This card can symbolize the resilience, strength, and determination of women, as well as the hope and inspiration that they bring to the world.

The World: The World is a card of completion, wholeness, and fulfillment. It represents the achievement of a long-term goal, and the sense of satisfaction and completion that comes with it.

Happy 2024! What will it bring for us all?

To kick off the new year I thought I’d do a reading for 2024. Rather than drawing the cards myself, I thought it might be interesting and fun to see what insights AI could offer. So I asked Chat GTP to simulate a tarot reading based on a random card selection and provide a general interpretation of what the cards might suggest for 2024.

After typing in my question, Chat GTP gave me three virtual tarot cards for its overview of 2024:

The Wheel of Fortune: This card signifies change, cycles, and destiny. It suggests that 2024 may bring significant shifts and turning points in various aspects of life. Be prepared for both ups and downs, as this card symbolises the ever-changing nature of circumstances.

The Tower: This card represents sudden and unexpected upheavals or transformations. It indicates that there might be some disruptions or events that could shake things up significantly in 2024. It could be seen as a breaking down of old structures to make way for new beginnings.

The Empress: This card symbolises fertility, abundance, and nurturing energy. In the context of 2024, it suggests that amidst the changes and upheavals, there will be opportunities for growth, creativity and the flourishing of new ideas or projects.

It’s interesting that three Major Arcana cards have shown up!!  That confirms that the reading is important right now. Overall, it seems that 2024 might bring a mix of unpredictable changes, both positive and challenging, leading to transformative experiences. It’s a year that may encourage embracing change, nurturing new beginnings, and adapting to unexpected situations with resilience.

So, quite a generic reading that can actually be applied to what’s going on around us. I would have preferred to not see the Tower here, but realistically it does fit with current world events.

I would never use AI for a personal Tarot reading – I find that totally disingenuous and unethical. If you would like to know what the year holds for you I’ll be happy to read your cards over Zoom or WhatsApp, or to send you an email reading.

How can the Tarot help me move forward in my career?

Tarot cards are used as a tool for self-reflection, gaining insights, and exploring possibilities rather than predicting a fixed future. In terms of your career, here’s how tarot might help you:

 

 

 

 

  1. Self-reflection: Tarot readings can encourage introspection about your career aspirations, strengths, weaknesses and desires. They might prompt you to contemplate your current situation and what you truly want from your career.
  2. Clarity and guidance: Tarot cards can offer perspectives or guidance on your career path. They can highlight aspects of your professional life that you may not have considered or bring attention to factors influencing your current situation.
  3. Decision-making: When facing choices or dilemmas in your career, tarot readings can provide alternative viewpoints or factors to consider. They might not give a definitive answer but could shed light on potential outcomes or consequences of different choices.
  4. Identifying obstacles: Tarot can help identify potential obstacles or challenges in your career and offer insights into how to overcome them. This might involve recognizing limiting beliefs, fears, or external factors impacting your progress.
  5. Setting goals: Through tarot readings, you can gain clarity on your career goals and aspirations. This might involve understanding what steps to take or what mindset shifts are needed to achieve those goals.

When using tarot for career guidance, here are some tips:

  • Be open-minded: Approach tarot with an open mind and readiness to receive guidance or insights, even if they might challenge your current perceptions.
  • Focus your questions: Ask specific questions related to your career. For example, “What steps can I take to advance in my career?” or “What should I focus on to achieve success in my chosen field?”
  • Reflect on the readings: After a tarot reading, take time to reflect on the messages conveyed by the cards. Consider how they relate to your situation and what actions or changes you can make based on the insights gained.
  • Integrate with practical action: While tarot can offer guidance, it’s important to combine it with practical action. Use the insights gained from the reading to inform your decisions and actions in your career.

Remember, tarot readings are a form of guidance and self-reflection; your own actions and choices ultimately shape your career path. If you’re uncertain, consulting a professional tarot reader or counselor might provide more personalized insights and guidance.
