Yesterday was the first quarter moon. Each new moon, I do a monthly moon phases spread that has a card for each of the key moon phases throughout the month – and the 10 of Swords, above, came up for yesterday.
Well, it was a little bit like that actually, but nowhere near as tragic as the picture. We were meant to go camping at Eungella National Park for the weekend, but on Saturday we discovered the fuel pump for my boyfriend’s ute was not working. A whole weekend of pulling the ute apart and putting it back together didn’t get us anywhere, though thankfully it was all resolved this morning.
When I first saw this card – about a week ago when I did the full spread on the new moon – I got a bit worried, thinking something rather bad might happen. But the reality is never as grim as the cards predict, really. I sort of see my boyfriend in the card above, at pains trying to work out what on earth is wrong with car, pulling the fuel pump out, checking the electrics, having no luck – while I’m just standing by hoping it will all turn out ok. Thankfully it did, though for now Eungella will have to wait: we’re off on another camping trip this coming weekend at one of the beaches in the area.
I’m slowly bonding with this deck, the Barbara Walker Tarot. It’s an interesting one, though quite a few of the cards are a bit on the dark side, and some interpretations vastly different to the traditional RWS. I’m enjoying the small size of the cards though, and I’ll do a review as soon as I get a scanner.
Hope you all have a beautiful week ahead. Many blessings,
