Tarot Greeting Cards
Hand painted greeting cards featuring Major and Minor Arcana.
The following interpretations are from Tarot by The Library of Esoterica.
The Empress: In most decks, the Empress represents fertility, creativity and divine feminine power. She is the cosmic mother, pregnant with life, ideas, and desires. She exudes abundance, beauty, and the glorious pleasures of the senses. Ruling over both the earth and the sky, she celebrates both the body and the mystic mind.
The Moon: The moon's soft light reveals hidden truths, verities in dire need of discovery. She offers clarity, but only if there is a willingness to go deeply within. Moon insists that intuition, rather than rationale, be our guide through inner shadows. She demands release of the negative, and expects of us constructive and steady transformation.
Knight of Swords: Swords are the suit of higher consciousness, intellect, and of decisive change and focused power. Associated with the element of air, Swords symbolize an invisible yet potent strength, as air is symbolic of action, change, and masculine force. The Knight of Swords especially encourages self-assured action, but also warns against impulsiveness and impetuous behavior.
Knight of Cups: Cups explores the complexities of the heart, the push and pull of relationship to others, the catharsis that comes with deeply felt emotions. Ruled by the element of water, cups are symbolic of the inner feminine, the place where intuition and nurturing reside. The Knight of Cups is symbolic of fantasies--our inner world. This card suggests the exploration of our interior landscapes and can also connote emotional love, proposition, and invitation.
Queen of Wands: Wands are the suit of desire and yearning, dreams, and manifestation. Aligned with the element of fire, they symbolize flames of sexuality, willpower, and primal energy. This is the suit of the ego, of masculine determination and ambition without bounds. The Queen of Wands demands we be undaunted by challenge and to embrace success while adhering to our principles an beliefs.
The Lovers: The Lovers signify attraction and desire, the marriage of opposites, the harmonious merging of the sacred and the profane. The duality depicted indicates the balance of yin and yang, the union of two opposing forces. The Lovers demand equilibrium and authenticity of emotion. They ask one to love while letting go, to give without needing to receive, an to empower without dominating.
