Duchess Dunsinane main picture

text ornament 02  

Be quiet, stranger. I do not wish to harm you… but if you value your life – make no sudden moves. You will not speak before I speak. 

When you come to me, you must remember that with light comes shadows.  Darkness follows light, and light follows darkness.  Here, you will find both. 

My name is Deandra, The Duchess of Dunsinane, and I will help guide you through both the light and the dark of your mind. 

Please, for your own sake – maintain complete silence until I give you a sign.

The Duchess of Dunsinane will delve into the very depths of your soul to bring forth your deepest desires.

Come, sit down. Let’s reveal your destiny.

6 OF CUPS INTERPRETATION

Classic meanings: A card of the past and of memories, looking back, as—for example—on childhood, happiness, enjoyment, but coming rather from the past, things that have vanished. Another reading reverses this, giving new relations, new knowledge, new environment, and then the children are disporting in an unfamiliar precinct.

Additional omen for love: A kiss done right is a terrible force of the sort you’d never imagined, intoxicating to the point of addiction.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: Children in an old garden, their cups filled with flowers.

THE CHARIOT INTERPRETATION

Classic meanings: Succor, providence, also war, triumph, presumption, vengeance, trouble.

In relation to love and feelings, this card has additional arcanum: The slowest kiss makes too much haste.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: An erect and princely figure carrying a drawn sword and corresponding, broadly speaking, to the traditional description which I have given in the first part. On the shoulders of the victorious hero are supposed to be the Urim and Thummim. He has led captivity captive, he is conquest on all planes—in the mind, in science, in progress, in certain trials of initiation. He has thus replied to the Sphinx, and it is on this account that I have accepted the variation of Eliphas Lévi, two sphinxes thus draw his chariot. He is above all things triumph in the mind.

It is to be understood for this reason (a) that the question of the sphinx is concerned with a Mystery of Nature and not of the world of Grace, to which the charioteer could offer no answer, (b) that the planes of his conquest are manifest or external and not within himself, (c) that the liberation which he effects may leave himself in the bondage of the logical understanding, (d) that the tests of initiation through which he has passed in triumph are to be understood physically or rationally and (e) that if he came to the pillars of that Temple between which the High Priestess is seated, he could not open the scroll called Tora, nor if she questioned him could he answer. He is not hereditary royalty and he is not priesthood.

7 OF CUPS INTERPRETATION

Classic meanings: Fairy favors, images of reflection, sentiment, imagination, things seen in the glass of contemplation, some attainment in these degrees, but nothing permanent or substantial is suggested.

The signifficance for love is explained by specific arcanum: When he possessed her, they seemed to swoon together at the very borderland of life’s mystery.

Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: Strange chalices of vision, but the images are more especially those of the fantastic spirit.

The wisdom I impart comes from your sacred energies.  Close your eyes, keep silent. Arrive open to the power that is bestowed upon us as we feel the cards for their divine intervention.

I will not give you the answers.  I will guide you to your inner power, strengthen your intuition, and help you trust your own wisdom.  We work with the power of the moon.  The moon’s influence will help you to reflect on your own natural magic.

 The phases of the moon will provide you with the healing powers of both darkness and light.

Be prepared as I read with a dark deck.  I aim to unlock the deepest layers of your soul.  I encourage you to delve deeper than your comfort level to find the depths of your desires.  It is not easy to peel your own layers hence my involvement with the help of the dark and wise.

Everyone has a dark side.  Embrace it and learn from it.  You can’t deny your emotions, but you can learn to harness them and accept that they exist.

About me:

Though I am not a witch, I hold the wisdom of one.  I have been appointed custodian of the witches’ oracles and given access to their prophetic insight.  I can reveal the mystical realms to you and what is required to bring positive change into your life.  The spells and magic that connect you to the elements are in my power to reveal.  I draw on the power of the witches, the moon, and the mystical realm to reveal your desires.

My Dome of Discovery is near the village of Collace in Perthshire, Scotland.  Dunsinane Hill has been my home all my life.  It is my sanctum of solitude where I do my best work.

Duchess Deandra of Dunisnane
