Card of the Day: July 5, 2015

Today’s card is the King of Wands reversed!

King of Wands reversed

The King of Wands is the epitome of inspiration and passion, and represents the energy needed to achieve something huge arriving. However, in the reversed position this card indicates haste and high expectations; now is not the time to rush, for true greatness takes time and patience. Expecting too much of yourself or others will only prolong the task at hand. Your passions are coming to life! These things take time, so to avoid burning out, have faith in your abilities, don’t let the buggers get you down, and remember that slow and steady wins the race. It’s happening!

Today this card is telling me that I’m on the right track with the launch of the Tantramar Tarotscopes venture. My dreams are becoming reality, and the King of Wands reversed is here to remind me to balance. It’s tempting to stay on the phone and computer all day checking for new traffic, but I have other responsibilities that need my attention too. Working at what I love a little at a time while also remembering to balance in schoolwork and home life will bring me everything I’ve envisioned. Here on the Tantramar Marsh, the elements agree: we had a surprise thunderstorm in the middle of a sunny day! The King of Wands has a way of making his presence known!

This is a time of celebration and harmony, and of remembering tradition with friends and community. This is also a time of creative transition, and of peace and blessings at home. Not only is today a holiday to remember the meaning of community, it is also the day I begin my launch back into the blogosphere! I feel just as joyful as the girls on the card, as I carefully choose what images to use for my blog and plan layouts and directions to take.

I’m sure all you readers are having a happy and harmonious Saturday of celebration too! Take heart in finding the joys that friends, community, and life transitions provide. Life is beautiful!



Hello World!

Card XXI-The World

Welcome to Tantramar Tarotscopes. My name is Miriam, and I cast astrological charts and tarot spreads on the banks of the beautiful Tantramar Marsh. I read tarot spreads based on the influences present in  person’s astrological chart, and I incorporate the astrological correspondences of each tarot card into my readings.

My interest in astrology and tarot stems from the deep sense of peace that comes over me when I read my own characteristics or actions into a tarotscope. I see tarotscopes as helpful tools for life guidance, as confirmations of personal strengths and passions, and as identifiers of areas that need reflection to maintain balance.

I believe that astrology and tarot provide balance through turning inward to explore the roots of the soul, using universally relatable archetypes and symbols that undeniably ring true. Tarotscopes can help unearth the mysteries of the personality, providing the keys to self-assurance through self-understanding. With empathy and good humour, I deliver readings as a spiritual guide, illuminating the planets and the cards.

Tarot spreads represent a snapshot in time. Astrological charts represent the same, but on a planetary, cosmic level. By layering the image provided by the tarot spread atop the complex portrait painted by the astrological chart, exciting and inspiring realizations can be made. Ongoing meditation on the messages delivered provides a serene confidence and sense of universal perspective.

For fun, I will start with card-a-day tarot readings, sharing my insights and what the card means for me at that moment in time. Weekly, I will share a full set of tarotscopes, one for each sign! In between I’ll share interesting tidbits that speak to me as a tarot-reading astrologer, mother, partner, and marsh-dweller.
