We have another Mercury retrograde beginning in February. And, this time Mercury will begin his retrograde…
Got an attraction for someone, but not sure how to approach them? All you need to know is their horoscope sign, and we can show you just what to do to get them to notice you. This article will be discussing the Sun signs, Moon signs, and also their Venus signs. The Sun rules our characters. The Moon governs emotions. And, Venus is the goddess of love and sensuality. We also look at the sexes and the signs, because men and women under the same sign can be very different. (more…)
One of the easiest ways for a woman to spice-up her love life is to watch movies and stories about love and romance and to read romantic articles and books. Audio books are always a plus for busy women. Keeping up with a job and family can leave us little time to stroke our imaginations. But, it’s so important to take time for ourselves. If we’re constantly sacrificing our needs for our children and our mate, we will find very quickly that we are fading away into nothing. (more…)
Artificial intelligence is slowly creeping into everyone’s life, and the Alexa devices from Amazon are becoming very popular. We can use Alexa to play the music we like, turn on and off household devices, read the news, give us traffic and weather reports, look up local businesses, provide us with sport scores, make calls to family and friends, add things to our shopping and to do lists, play our audio books, play music or nature sounds while we sleep, tell us stories, have a conversation, set a timer or alarm, and even act as an intercom between rooms. But, did you know that Alexa will also consult the Tarot on your behalf? You don’t even have to own an Alexa device. Just install the Alexa app on your phone or tablet and get all the benefits. So, today I thought it would be nice to go through the Alexa skills and review the different Tarot skills you can install.
The first Tarot skill I installed, and probably my most favorite is the Daily Tarot Reading by EDC. All I have to do is ask Alexa to open my Daily Tarot Reading. Sometimes I just ask her, “Alexa ask Daily Tarot to tell me my daily tarot card.” She will select a card randomly from one of the 78 different Tarot cards available. The Daily Tarot does not read reversed cards, but still 78 different cards is a pretty big library.
Arcana is the plural for arcanum, which means “profound secret.” So, the major arcana of the Tarot are a collection of “secrets” that explain the basics of our universe. These cards always carry more weight than the minor arcana, and some believe they describe the stages of one’s personal growth.
In my last article, I discussed the first five major arcana cards, The Fool, The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress, and The Emperor. These cards help us to see ourselves as a child (The Fool) and an adolescent (The Magician). Then we develop our own spiritual awareness (The High Priestess), and our need to partner with another human (The Empress and The Emperor). In this article I will cover The Hierophant, The Lovers, The Chariot, Strength, and The Hermit, and these cards symbolize some of the triumphs and tribulations of what it means to be human. (more…)
