Well, that's a nice card to start this off with. (I signed up for a tarot course and part of it is that you draw one card a day and write/meditate about it, so that's what I'm doing, although this probaby isn't going to literally happen every day... we shall see). Just as a note to myself, how I'm going about this is:

1) Draw a card off the top of the Osho Zen Tarot deck, which is the one I've been reading from for the past 8 years or so.

2) Find the approximately-corresponding card (this isn't going to work 100% of the time) in the Daughters of the Moon deck that The Moderatrix gave me[1], and then looking up the corresponding Wildwood Tarot image on the internet[2]. I'd be doing this with the Next World Tarot cards as well, but they're still a work in progress and my deck won't be turning up until about August 2017, so I'm leaving that go for now (unless I pull one of the half dozen or so cards that are available as images online, in which case I will most likely include them). I'm also looking up the drawn card in my two Little Books, for added information (I may also draw on the Biddy Tarot website and one or two other sites, as they've been known to have insites that I didn't know about before), but the written work is going to be secondary to what I come up with on my own.

3) Write about how I understand the card in question, using the images (and, later, if I feel the need, some secondary sources / written work) to add to my original impressions.

Ready? Here we go!

So there you go. The Queen of Earth.


TTFN,

[1] It's a weird deck. It started as a reimagining of the traditional tarot, but a lot of things have been moved around, conflated, or otherwise switched up. So the Knights and Pages of each suit have been combined to become the Maidens in this deck, a lot of the suit of swords has been redistributed among the four suits, and a number of the Major Arcana cards have been combined (Emperor and Empress are one card now, for example) or out-right removed so that each suit (MA included) has 13 cards. It's not really a tarot deck anymore, but something else entirely. None the less, I'm bringing it into play because I want to be able to read with all of my cards, not just some of them.

[2] In theory, my Wildwood deck will show up about a week from tomorrow, at which point I'll start pulling the cards physically, but until then: Interwebs.
