I wanted the Nusantara Tarot (2010) for quite a while, but it’s hard to find. So, I was delighted to discover TABI had done a group order on it. The images are fairly standard RWS, yet with an appealing angularity, Indonesian costumes and a look which is both colorful and yet aged.
On Wednesday, I’ll be posting as part of the Tarot Blog Hop, so I decided to keep my weekly reading short and simple.
Release – Strength
This is one of those cards that I love so much I hate to see it in the release position. I should let go of feeling strong and capable?! And yet, I acknowledge that it may do me good to let go of the idea that I can do everything and control everything.
Instead of “I am woman, hear me roar”, right now perhaps I am more of a squeaking mouse. There’s so much going on with the kids off school and preparing for Christmas. And perhaps I don’t have to be the rock that everyone else leans on.
Embrace – Eight of Pentacles
The first thing I saw here is just plugging away at things. I may not feel I can do everything, yet if I consistently do something, I may achieve more than I thought.
For example, I’ve been shopping online for presents and then wrapping them, both while watching a bit of TV in the evening. That way, I get some simple stuff done while still feeling like I’m getting a bit of a break.
I hope you all are finding ways to cope with this often stressful time. If you’d like some journal prompts for the week based on these cards, click here.
