Sharing A New Deck
Steampunk Tarot by Barbara Moore (Author), Aly Fell (Author/Artist)

For anyone who loves sci-fi, from Star Trek to Firefly to Doctor Who and anything in Victorian period clothing, steampunk is a very happy world indeed.” ~ Barbara Moore

Oh yes it is indeed. I quite agree with that! And it’s probably that Victorian period look that attracts me the most. But more about this later.

I’m a creature of habit and routine. I like it that way. While I can easily have moments of spontaneity; what Gemini doesn’t, I do like my regular things that must be done kept in a certain order. And that includes pulling the card of the day.

All of our drawings to this point have used the Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft. A beautiful deck that I have felt very drawn to and connected with. Nature Faeries are a big part of my life and my day. And this deck is not only amazingly artistic, it’s fantastic for reading and interpreting the messages from spirit. And from the Fae.

I began pulling a daily card to share on December 1, 2009. Five years of using the same deck. I have other decks of course, but it wasn’t until recently that I’ve felt the need to let the faeries rest. A new deck and a new challenge was in the works.

On a cold Saturday night I was scrolling through Pinterest when I found an image of the Major Arcana’s Star that grabbed my attention. Investigating I discovered the card came from a deck called the Steampunk Tarot. Off to Google Images to see more. Oh boy! Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ten of Cups

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - 10 of cups

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Bells will be ringing in the changes and transitions in this chapter of your life. You can choose to see those changes as struggles with sorrowful emotions. Or you can look forward with faith and welcome in the new. Remember all clouds have a silver lining and you’re the one who selects your perspectives. Make the decision to be happy with the energy coming your way. Get excited about what you’ll discover over the next little hill. You’ll be glad that you did.


Additional Insight:

You maybe saying some good-byes or fare-the-wells. That’s ok. You’ve gotten what you needed from those encounters and it’s time to move on to something better. It was nice while it lasted, but you really do deserve more.

Whither it’s a relationship, friendship or a position at work or in a group, the writing was on the wall. Did you not notice the little signs that trying to tell you it was time to let go and move on? Often times when we don’t listen to our gut instincts and push through the feelings, the struggles become harder. Until the Divine force in your life has to give you a kick in the pants to get off the bench and make changes happen.

You’re always given the chance to see where the path is taking you. But when you constantly refuse to act upon it, you’re only make things harder on yourself. Go with the flow and accept what transpires. Know that this is for the best and for your better interests. There are many decisions and choices involved that have brought you to this point. And some of those you had nothing to do with. As is the case sometimes when we cross paths with other souls. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Queen of Cups

cups-queen

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Nurture your goals and put forth an effort into achieving them. Whither its a little item on your list of things to do, or a dream you’re trying to manifest, spend some time and energy to make it a reality. No one is going to do it for you. Inspire yourself,  focus and Git-R-Done.


Additional Insight:

Be the ruler over your own domain today and do something for you. In between all the work and little things you’re getting done for everyone else, you have time to spend on yourself. Skip the 15-minute gossip session in the hall, it’s not a good use of energy anyway.

Remember that what you think, say and do brings back the same energy to you that you’re putting out. Watch your words and thoughts. You don’t know everything that’s going on in someone elses life. They maybe at a breaking point and simply covering it up very well.

So forget about what other people are doing. Show some compassion. And if you can’t do that, than simply ignore the outside world and focus on your own task list. What do you have to get done on your list of resolutions or steps toward a goal or your big dream? That’s a much better use of your time today. Continue reading

Happy Friday the 13th, February 2015!

Thirteen On Springwolf ReflectionsThe 1st Black Friday Of The Year

The number ’13’ is often referred to as the number of transition/change. It is seen as constantly being at odds with the ’12’, trying to undo the completeness of that even number. People in general are resistant to change and reluctant to take on change when times are going well. But change in inevitable and constantly moves us forward, often whither we want it to or not.

For Pagans, 13 is the perfect number. It represents good luck and moving with the flow of Divine energy. Going with the flow is an important part of Pagan perspectives. Fighting against the tide is akin to fighting against change making bad situations even worse than they already are. Where as going with the flow of change brings peace and harmony. Even if you’re flowing with the tide, you are always in control of the paddle of your ship. Guide it safely forward and you’ll reap the benefits of the opportunities that cross your path.

There are a couple of articles here on Reflections that cover Friday the 13th. for those of you interested in learning more.

We hope you enjoy the first Friday the 13th for 2015. Make it a good one and it will be good to you in return.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Priestess

The Priestess

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

A day of balance, change and introspection.  Going with the flow, doesn’t mean riding the rapids haphazardly. Look within and discover where your own strengths are. Tap into that spiritual energy and allow your abilities to guide your journey through the rocks. Quench the negative self talk with your own perfected skills and you’ll even out the scales of imbalance in your favor.


Additional Insight:

In honor of Friday the 13th, I counted from the top of my tarot deck and selected the 13th card. I think she’s a fitting messenger for this day of transition and change.

The Priestess reminds us that we always have a say in where we’re going, how we get there and why. Sometimes that means we must take time to sit quietly and look within ourselves to discover the answers that will help us guide our journey.

We don’t have to sit in the raft and ride out the rapids holding on for dear life. Doing that allows fear to guide your direction and leaves angst, anxiety and worry to rule over your path. Trust your instincts and have faith in yourself and your abilities to choose the right course of action. Allow those talents to steer your craft through the treacherous waters and you’ll be able to avoid the hidden dangers.

The Priestess is a leader, even more so than the Queens of the suits, because she is the one who provides wisdom and understanding over events. The Priest and Priestess use their connection to the Divine in their lives to rise above the pettiness of the physical world and look beyond the emotions that cloud our judgement. By doing this they are able to see the events that brought us here, understand the lessons and can see the karma in play. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ten of Cups – Inverted

Ten of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Focus on the successes you’ve achieved, not on the failures you’ve endured. No one gets it right all the time and you’re not perfect! Learn from the situations that didn’t work out your way. Do the research to understand what happened and discover better solutions. Heal the wounds, show compassion to yourself and apply the knowledge you gained to the next attempt to achieve your dreams. Never give up and always “try” again!


Additional Insight:

Stop being so hard on yourself! You’re holding yourself up to a standard that no one can achieve and then beating yourself up because you didn’t get as far as you intended. No one is going to be perfect and get right every time. Not even you.

Those who have succeeded and reached the pinnacle have endured more failures than successes. But they didn’t dwell on what didn’t work. They learned from them. The recognized where their mistakes were and what they could fix. But they didn’t focus on the issues they couldn’t control and blame themselves for not seeing it coming, or not being aware, or not controlling the issue. They let it go and quickly moved on to the next plan. 

Instead of looking at how short you fell from the goal line, look at how far you came across the entire field. Let the effort to getting this far give you the energy to continue and give you the courage to make another try at reaching your goal. You can’t grab the brass ring if you don’t make a few small adjustments and make the reach again.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Priest – Inverted

The Priest - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t tie yourself up in knots. There’s still quite a bit of healing going on under the surface, mental, emotional and maybe even some physical. The mountain isn’t the gloomy place you’ve imagined either. Stop looking for the hidden shadows and give yourself a chance to see the beauty in the things around you. You’ve reached the emerald pinnacle, take in a deep breath and know the walk down will be easy and fun.


Additional Insight:

You’ve succeeded in the uphill climb and you’ve crested the top of the mountain. Take a moment to look back at how far you’ve come and allow yourself to feel a sense of pride at your accomplishments. But also, please stop worrying about continuing the climb. You’re not only at the top of the mountain, you’ve crossed over the crest and can see the meadows and fields below.

Yes the memories of hardship still sting and may weigh heavily within. But the are only past memories that can’t take hold today, unless you allow them to. So stop focusing on your tired legs and take a seat for an hour or two to rest. Take time to look up and see what’s before you. The greenery, the beauty of nature, the world is laid out before you; ready for you to explore and discover.

Get your nose out of the digital device. It only holds fake satisfaction. The intangible things that you can’t reach in and touch, smell or taste. Give yourself permission to live in the real world today. Take a walk outside, stand by the window and watch the movement of nature as the wind blows by. You can learn a lot from nature, but first you have to take notice and allow yourself to see.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Pentacles – Inverted

Knight Of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

There’s a time to rest and a time to push forward. Being prepared doesn’t meant you must use all the weapons in your arsenal. But if you need to fight back and defend your position, you’re ready to do so. It’s a CYA day, so make sure you are following directions and have the proof to back it up. Protect your domain and don’t be someone else’s scape goat today!


Additional Insight:

You’ve worked hard to build a harvest that can sustain you and provide a step to the next level of your plans. Now is not the time to sit back and allow someone who’s greedy and trying to cut corners, put your domain at risk. If they’ve made mistakes, that’s their problem. Cover your ass today and make sure you have the evidence to show your work has been on plan and legit.

You may need to stand up for yourself and fight for what’s yours. Which may mean being able to confront conflict with confidence in yourself, your work and in your right to push back when necessary. Don’t let fear hold you back. That one additional step you take forward in the face of battle, might be exactly what’s needed to keep your opponent off the battlefield.

No one wants to start the day by preparing for a fight. But unfortunately not everyone thinks that way. Being prepared doesn’t mean you’re the one who will start the war. Don’t go looking for a fight. Don’t set anyone up or lay the foundation for someone else to step into a hole that causes them to fall back on fear and desperation. If you see somebody struggling, offer to help. Don’t watch them falter when you know what could be done to keep them from falling on their face. Continue reading
