Lua Tarot is a sister site to Lua Astrology. At the beginning of this year, I started writing a weekly Tarot feature at Lua Astrology as I love Tarot and wanted to include it on my site. As time went on though, I began to realise that with around 28 years of experience in working with the Tarot I had a lot more to say!
But Lua Astrology was originally intended to be devoted to astrology and I had a sense that it wasn’t quite working mixing the two together. I had the idea of setting up a new blog and then froze as I considered all the work on top of my other projects.
Time is limited. I’m writing a book, I have around 6 other books I want to write and on top of that I have an idea for a tarot deck I want to design! Along with my site on Lisbon, well, I really wasn’t sure whether I was making the right decision! Unable to decide, I opted for not thinking about it. My cards however had other ideas…
I read regularly for myself. Sometimes I read daily, at other times it may be every couple of weeks or so. What I notice by working so intimately with my cards is that certain cards move in and out of play.
During this time of confusion the Two of Wands kept popping up. On three occasions it simply threw itself out of the pack. Whilst I could interpret in reference to other situations going on in my life I knew I was missing something.
Then, one day the Two of Wands turned up beside the Moon card. The man’s face in the picture seemed exasperated! My cards gave up on giving me subtle hints and decided to spell it out for me in no uncertain terms.
The Moon in Portuguese is Lua. In the Mythic deck the Two of Wands shows a man holding two burning wands in either hand watched by Chiron who shelters in cave. I realised that I was being guided in the direction of having two sets of inspiration, two equal paths, two avenues of discussion yet they came from one source. Despite my reservations and worrying about time, I knew that Lua Tarot wanted to come out into the light.
So here we are!
You will notice that there are some posts on here which date back quite some time. These were originally posted on Lua Astrology and have been moved along with the kind comments that were made at the time to this blog. I chose to keep their original date of publication for continuity. Some of my visitors may be familiar already with the ‘Message in a Bottle” series I wrote. For new readers, this was a series of three card readings to obtain a message from the universe each week.
I’ve also included the post How I Came to read Tarot in case you would like to know my story
Lua Tarot is dedicated to sharing what I have learned so far along the Tarot road but there is so much more to learn! It is a lifelong journey. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences along the way.
