Hi there! Come in, don’t be shy.
You can call Mistress Hekate. I’m exited to help guide your spirit through the wilderness of life. Trough writing, I hope to pass on my teachings and ideas to help all people feel connected and in tune with their physical and spiritual bodies. I like to see myself as a positive being, a shoulder to cry on and counsellor to advise, if this comes across in my writing to you then I see that as a job well done. Even if you do not believe in practices of witchcraft, I want to relay a positive message to you all, the world needs different believers, as long as those beliefs don’t hurt anyone.
Are you ready?
Then open the card below and let’s start our journey.
8 OF PENTACLES INTERPRETATION
In relation to love and feelings, this card has additional arcanum: The years he’d spent looking for her had left permanent scars on his heart.
Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: An artist in stone at his work, which he exhibits in the form of trophies.
THE HERMIT INTERPRETATION
A special insight for love: I think only when you are truly alone can you see you never were.
Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: The variation from the conventional models in this card is only that the lamp is not enveloped partially in the mantle of its bearer, who blends the idea of the Ancient of Days with the Light of the World. It is a star which shines in the lantern. I have said that this is a card of attainment, and to extend this conception the figure is seen holding up his beacon on an eminence. Therefore the Hermit is not, as Court de Gebelin explained, a wise man in search of truth and justice, nor is he, as a later explanation proposes, an especial example of experience. His beacon intimates that “where I am, you also may be.“
It is further a card which is understood quite incorrectly when it is connected with the idea of occult isolation, as the protection of personal magnetism against admixture. This is one of the frivolous renderings which we owe to Eliphas Lévi. It has been adopted by the French Order of Martinism and some of us have heard a great deal of the Silent and Unknown Philosophy enveloped by his mantle from the knowledge of the profane. In true Martinism, the significance of the term Philosophe inconnu was of another order. It did not refer to the intended concealment of the Instituted Mysteries, much less of their substitutes, but—like the card itself—to the truth that the Divine Mysteries secure their own protection from those who are unprepared.
THE MOON INTERPRETATION
The signifficance for love is explained by specific arcanum: I’m waiting with baited breath to hear that silver tongue of yours.
Original description of the card by the author – Arthur Edward Waite: The distinction between this card and some of the conventional types is that the moon is increasing on what is called the side of mercy, to the right of the observer. It has sixteen chief and sixteen secondary rays. The card represents life of the imagination apart from life of the spirit. The path between the towers is the issue into the unknown. The dog and the wolf are the fears of the natural mind in the presence of that place of exit, when there is only reflected light to guide it.
The last reference is a key to another form of symbolism. The intellectual light is a reflection and beyond it is the unknown mystery which it cannot show forth. It illuminates our animal nature, types of which are represented below—the dog, the wolf and that which comes up out of the deeps, the nameless and hideous tendency which is lower than the savage beast. It strives to attain manifestation, symbolized by crawling from the abyss of water to the land, but as a rule it sinks back whence it came. The face of the mind directs a calm gaze upon the unrest below, the dew of thought falls, the message is: Peace, be still, and it may be that there shall come a calm upon the animal nature, while the abyss beneath shall cease from giving up a form.
Is there one God that rules the world of Tarot, or, perhaps – many Gods who dwell in the cards from the times immemorial?
Personally, I believe that there is not a singular divine being who influences our world but instead a divine energy that feeds into the universe’s core, and we all contribute to this energy. That is not to say that simply staying positive is the cure to everything, but it is certainly not a bad start. I see negativity often gain more ground and popularity than positivity and it damages the soul of myself and the world.
Through meditation, I have seen the beautiful colours of the world that can only be seen through your mind. I have felt the flow of angelic energy through my body and I know that you can feel it too. You may think that my words are utter poppycock and that this is all just a placebo inside of my head. To that I say, so what if it is? If I can find myself in a state of calm and euphoria when practicing tarot and meditation, then it doesn’t matter to me whether I got there through true spirit or a placebo effect.
What am I good at?
My specialities include reading tea leaves and working with tarot card interpretation. I think both of these practices are divine and can help you more than you may know. However, I do not claim to know everything, and I am excited to accompany you all on the journey and learn with you.
One thing that I am frequently asked is what my favourite tarot card is and the answer to that is The Sun. In my mind, it is one of the most positive cards that you can pull in a reading and as someone who has dealt with anxiety and depression for most of her life, I can say that seeing it never fails to put a smile on my face and it will always give me that semblance of hope that I so truly desire.
In my mind, my spirit is best represented through the moth, a being flying to the light and forever searching for its desire. If you see a moth remember these words that Mistress Hekate said to you, keep searching and don’t give up for you will eventually find your light.
