Weekly Card – Nine of Swords

In which we find our heroine battling night terrors and demons. Blargh. Tell me something I don't know. Definitely not what I was hoping for.¬† The Nine of Swords indicates worries and concerns, fears, things keeping you up at night, nightmares.

Weekly Card – The Star redux

Well. Here we are again. :::drums fingers::: Looks like somenone's not getting the message, or it's taking longer than we'd hoped/anticipated for things to right themselves.

Weekly Card – Temperance

Temperance from the Victorian Romantic Tarot 2nd edition from Baba Studio is our card this week. This deck is exquisite, with many beautiful cards, but this one is transcendent.
