Cartomancy for the World, May 18 2022!

This could be a very significant day for the world and ourselves as individuals.

Overtly it is a day for decisive action in practical areas of life, in money, finance etc. Start some new practical project.

Covertly, there is a ‘coming home to roost’ feeling about certain other financial and economic issues, where structures are either falling or need to be taken down. It’s time to stop doing those things which are not working for us.

Resolution: Ultimately concentrate on family concerns, be with them, your nearest and dearest and treasure the quality of life you can have – reconnect with those from the past.

‘not every angel is terrible’ Gwyn Davy

Two lonely people with differing backgrounds find themselves crossing paths while living in the beautiful city of Prague. They soon discover, however, that they have a shared love of history, and also come to appreciate each other’s love of the works of Rainer Maria Rilke and Matsuo Basho. Fifty-something Englishman Edward Stone is divorced and semi-retired, a man with his own mind who is an enthusiastic blogger and walker. Thirty-something Brita Kraus has never married, and whilst she enjoys her independence, also feels there is something greatly missing from her life, the result of a family tragedy which she dare not divulge to anyone – until now.

World Tarot Trends for Week Beginning 27.02.2022

A week of culmination; goals can be attained in regard to family, the home and the nation. There should be important news about this.

A week of new concerted actions too, but with consideration for all nations and peoples, not so much selfishly.

Communications, via media, social media, very important and laid bare in more practical terms. In the world of justice much is also attained and will be revealed.

Financially some important news regarding some achievement or new foundation.

The overall outcome this week will see not only changes but, amongst that, also a promise of a return to more traditional ways of doing things – and maybe the return of one significant individual.

Tarot Today, Saturday 13.12.21

Today marks something new and practical which can be achieved, not only personally but in a wider sense. We may hear news regarding the economy, or money, such as crypto, or equally, important new developments politically.

In the background some long standing emotional issues, relating to family, health and similar concerns have finally drawn to a close, although this may be far less obvious. It is time to move on because, inevitably, cycles do end and we have to let go to progress in our everyday and spiritual lives. Letting go can be the hardest thing.

Nevertheless, it is also important to retain certain fundamental traditions and roots from the past. For example, it’s not logical to tar everyone and everything with the same brush if certain long standing institutions are found to be a corrupting influence. There are good people everywhere, and although there are ongoing conflicts, disruption and change, we have to bring something from the past with us for the sake of stability and humanity. Very often these roots are cultural and spiritual – we must guard against wholesale revolution, which only brings misery and degredation. Look at the lessons from the past.

Poem: ‘Mother & Child’

Photo by Polina Tankilevitch on Pexels.com

Of course
you were always there;
I still see those dark eyes
like warm pools of love,
such intimacy poisoning
nearby attention.
And whilst jealousy
and estrangement
have enmeshed silence
around us ever since —
family is everything,
it’s all we have to
fall back on,
to stand up to those
moving to destroy us.
So mother, I honour you,
archetype in my mind,
fulcrum of my heart:
And may siblings forgive
each other.
