TarotBlogHop: Ancestors Advice

PREVIOUSMASTERNEXT

It’s time for the Tarot Blog Hop again. This time our wrangler is Louise Underhill. She’s challenged us to ask our ancestors for advice for the coming year. Since we are a company rather than an individual, we thought we would ask Pixie to help us out here.

Pixie aka Pamela Colman Smith was the underserved artist of the Rider Waite Tarot. Many now refer to that deck as the Rider Waite Smith Tarot to honor her. We hold her in high regards here.

We decide to honor Pixie by showing off the Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Tarot as well as Pixie’s Astounding Lenormand.

Her work graced many books including Bram Stoker’s last novel, The Lair of the White Worm. Her cousin, William Gillette (known for his work acting as Sherlock Holmes), collected some of her work. You can see them at his home, his castle actually, in Connecticut.

Here are some images from the Commemorative set.

Money and Oracles is the topic our bloghop wrangler gave us. Ania asked us,

How do you use the Tarot in relation to matters financial? Do you make a living from it? Do you sometimes have a sneaky peek to help you pick lottery numbers or have a flutter on the gee-gees (and have you had any luck)? Do you take the risky path of advising others on financial matters or is filthy lucre a no-go area? Is it just the Pentacles for money matters or do you associate other. less obvious, cards with this area?

For our contribution, we thought we would offer up some Lenormand money cards.

In the category of small money and small luck, you have the Clover (2).

Next would be the Ship (3) which carries a meaning of investing. It can point to money coming in from a foreign land as well.

The Bear can be seen as your personal finances. It has a meaning of luck in your money.

The Mice, however, are not lucky. They chew and gnaw things so when you see the Mice someone or something is nibbling away at your finances.

But the Fish swim back to prosperity and lots of it. Here is your Bill Gates type fortune.

Finally, the Anchor is the card that indicates your financial stability.

We hope you have enjoyed our Lenormand money cards. Leave us a comment then hop to the next blog.
