“When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves and our own self-preservation, we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.”
~ Joseph Campbell
Alright, it’s ON! This Tarot challenge is going to challenge me to the core and force me to dig deeper than ever before… because… my quest card is also my Shadow Birth Card! Read More
“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”

When the King of Swords from the Tarot Decoratif showed up to symbolise the call to adventure, it had me stumped for a while. It didn’t seem to fit with the concept of a blunder, I hadn’t received an invitation from a man (or any human) and I didn’t see how this courtier could represent a force. Read More

For day 2 of the Hero’s Journey IG Tarot Challenge by @faerali, we ask ourselves what caused enough of a sense of dissatisfaction to make us depart from the status quo. Read More
”Adventure is worthwhile.”
For September, I thought we’d try something a bit different for the daily tarotized quote. I’m going to be combining it with the Hero’s Journey Instagram challenge by Alison Spokes. Her challenge is based on Joseph Campbell’s theory of the Hero’s Journey and that is something I have been wanting to dive deeper into for quite some time, so I kind of had to sign up for this challenge.

Tenacity is sister of patience and perseverance. It’s a fixed quality and that is why it as associated with the Knight of Pentacle (Taurus/Fixed Earth).
Tenacity means sticking to the programming and not shirking any of the tasks. Someone who is tenacious doesn’t mind working hard over an extended period of time because they have their eye on the prize. Read More
Ever since I answered my soul’s calling this spring to work with embodying the Divine Feminine and embrace my Magdalene mission, I have been acutely aware that Patriarchy is in its death throes.
For today’s draw, I was willing a card to come out that allowed me to talk some more about this in the light of recent events. The fact that The Emperor, prime patriarch, came out is something I see as divine sanction for calling out BS Steinem style. Read More
This 2 of Cups feels very much like the new energy coming in after the big eclipse clear-out, where I let go of my Doreen Virtue certificates and deleted any mention of them from my FB page and website. I stand in my own truth now and doing so is bringing in so much love and support from all the right people. I’ve even made a few new friends in the process!
I love the 8 of Pentacles in the Faerie Tarot by Nathalie Hertz. It shows a beautiful faery princess who has gone outside with her lyre to practice late at night. Her arms are muscular from all the practice and she has a look of intense focus on her face. To her, the surrounding darkness is only a bonus because it makes it easier for her to focus on the beautiful sounds coming from her lyre. Read More
Many women I know online and in real life are answering the call of this eclipse… They are doing exactly what Schopenhauer mentions in this quote, withdrawing/elevating themselves above the mass. They are answering their soul’s call for change, growth and transmutation. They are going with the flow of the celestial tide, opening their hearts to receive. Read More
Ascension is a process set in motion by the One, experienced by the many. Essentially we all go through the same steps on our journey to awakening but it is not a linear process… and it is all too easy to keep falling back asleep. Read More
