#TarotDaily – 7 of Spirals Rx + Emperor Rx (#Pholarchos)

What happened? Where did it all go wrong? He had been confident that by now he’d be reaping the benefits of his plans and policies; being recognized for his successful, prosperous rule. Instead, things were in chaos. Instead of growth and prosperity, there was resentment and upheaval. He was accused of not caring, being an…

#TarotDaily – The Fool + Apprentice of Stakes Rx (Sacred Bridges)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds: You’re being deceived, following a fool who has you confused about which end is up. Be cautious and try to regain your footing by finding facts and taking a rational, logical approach.

  The Wheel of Change Knight of Pentacles (Knights in this deck are equivalent to Kings in more traditional decks) shows an Aztec (or maybe Mayan) warrior accompanied by a jaguar looking over a pyramid.   A huge wheel engraved with symbols that is probably a calendar, stands behind him.  A beam of golden light shoots…

COTD – King of Pentacles/Man of Painting (Hudes & Blake)
