Join the Faerie Fellowship!

Indi from the Faeries Oracle by Brian Froud

“Nothing can be truer than fairy wisdom.  It is as true as sunbeams.” ~Douglas Jerrold

This month Heroic Tarot celebrates the wisdom of the fae as found in the divination decks of Brian Froud! Famed conceptual designer and costume designer for the films Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal, as well as artist for The Faeries’ Oracle and The Heart of Faerie, writes that “the connection with the faeries is wonderful because it gives us an opportunity to experience the world in an open and connected way.” Froud believes that “there is great wisdom to be gained if we allow them to turn our prejudices and preconceptions upside down.” Heroic Tarot is proud to include them in readings with traditional Tarot cards and the X-Men superhero deck.

Awaken Your Unconscious! Heroic Tarot’s July Schedule

The Moon

“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” ~Tahereh Mafi

This July, Heroic Tarot dances with the Moon, herald of mystery and change, bringer of messages through dreams and visions, and ruler of the subconscious! When it appears in a reading, it is time to turn away from external concerns and go within for deep contemplation. Rachel Pollack, in her book Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom writes,

The Devil

“He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

This month, Heroic Tarot dispels the darkness around the Devil! This Major Arcana card is ruled by Capricorn and represents creating boundaries and limitations in your life. In Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, Rachel Pollack explains:

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” ~Aristotle

Tidings of great joy to you in this dark December, dear ones!  This month Heroic Tarot visits the mountain lair of The Hermit for spiritual counsel! This Major Arcana card symbolizes introspection and inner solitude.  He is our guide, leading us with his lantern of inspiration and knowledge.  Let us, as Michele Morgan says in A Magical Course in Tarot, “retreat for a time into his realm; learn his ways of careful deliberation, self-knowledge, and prudence in thought and deed.”

In his book, The Way of the Tarot, Alejandro Jodorowsky writes that The Hermit often represents a transformation that cannot be escaped, a “profound change that needs to be confronted and accepted.  It evokes the idea of a teacher, a therapist, or a guide.”  Jodorowsky goes on to describe The Hermit if the card could speak in the first person.  I found this passage to be especially illuminating:

Little by little, I have freed myself of all bonds. I no longer belong to my thoughts. My words do not define me. I have vanquished my passions. Detached from desire, I dwell within my heart as if inside a hollow tree. My body is a vehicle that I witness as it ages, passes and vanishes like the irresistible course of a river. I no longer know who I am; I live in total ignorance of myself. To reach the light, I bury myself in darkness. To attain ecstasy, I cultivate indifference. To achieve the love of all things and all beings, I have retired into solitude. It is there, in the remotest nook of the universe, that I open my soul like a flower of pure light. Gratitude without demand:  the essence of of my knowledge is the knowledge of essence.

The Hermit teaches us to go within to find the lessons we have learned.  Then he shows us the way to share this knowledge with the rest of the world.  There is a strong need to complete a project through service.  Our individual lessons become communal wisdom.

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” ~C.G. Jung

Initiate Change! Heroic Tarot’s October Schedule

Death“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

October greetings, to you, dear reader!  This month the thirteenth Tarot card of the Major Arcana brings transformation and rebirth into our lives! Often feared and misunderstood as bringing an actual death into one’s life, this card actually refers to the end of one era and the beginning of a new one!  Great change is on the way!  How will you greet the transformation? Contemplate this Native American proverb:

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.  Live your life in a manner so that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.

Ancient Egyptians believed that they would be asked two questions upon their passing that would determine their new lives in the beyond.  The first was, “Did you bring joy?” and the second was, “Did you find joy?”  What is most important to you?  How could you release what is unnecessary in your life to focus on what is in your heart? Come in for a Heroic Tarot reading and let us work together to manifest these goals!
