30 Day Tarot Challenge - Week Two - June 8-14, 2020 - Rohrig Tarot


Today (June 8)  begins the second week of the 30 Day Tarot Challenge. The same-named Tarot group on Facebook is a great group, with much caring and sharing for all levels of Tarot readers. If you are interested, definitely check them out. 

My daily cards and interpretations will be posted in the group and here on my blog. For the blog, I will post them in groups of weeks. The deck I will be using throughout this challenge is the Rohrig Tarot. I have loved this deck since the image on the box cover jumped out at me in a bookstore back in 1997. Although I learned to read Tarot with the Rider-Waite system, this deck is based on the Thoth system and yet still gives me very deep readings. The deep readings are why I love it so much and why it is such a treasure to me.

WEEK TWO

Day 8 - June 8, 2020
___
I asked to be shown something I should be aware of today.

Rohrig-Tarot-9-of-wands-Mother-Tarot
9 of Wands - Rohrig Tarot

Today’s prompt in our challenge was, “What can I celebrate in my life today? Or what do I know I will keep?” 

This card shows I can celebrate the diligent, determined, personal strength my husband and I share because of his many health issues. We stand together, facing them all as they come, and I know we will continue to do that. He is so stoic in how he deals with everything and I tease him about how high he has set the bar for me. I don’t think I could ever measure up to him in this regard. 

Sometimes, when he gets to feeling he is no longer the warrior he was when he was younger and working, I remind him his new battlefield is the health arena and that he is still every bit a warrior there. I truly admire his ability to rise above and overcome. 

When I drew this card initially, I had not yet seen today’s prompt and was asking to be shown something I should be aware of today. This prompt has done exactly that.

Day 9 - June 9, 2020
___
Show me some energies of today.

Rohrig-Tarot-Death-card-Mother-Tarot
Death - Rohrig Tarot

The prompt for today was to show the words that a person on our card might say. This young woman has always seemed a bit pouty to me and the first thing that came to mind for her to say was (with my editing), “Heck no, I won’t go!”

But looking at this card further, there is also a feeling of determination in her face. With all the protests going on in the world, and the pandemic an underlying issue as well, the protesters are risking their lives for the fair treatment of all that they seek. Their staunch, immovable protests are determined and they will bring change. So the woman’s words that came to me are right in this way, too. “Heck no, I won’t go!”  Determined change in coming.

How it turned out - Amazing and unexpected changes are starting to happen in police departments in some cities, leading to changes in policing cultures across the land. The Senate and House of Representatives are each working on creating laws to facilitate that nation wide. Big changes are definitely coming. Wow!

Day 10 - June 10, 2020
___
Give me a message for today.

Mother-Tarot-Rohrig-Tarot-6ofCups
6 of Cups - Rohrig Tarot

This sexy image for the 6 of Cups made me chuckle. I don’t think we will have this kind of romantic day, but it will be romantic of a sort. Today I see more the traditional Rider-Waite 6 of Cups meaning of reminiscing about the good old days. 

Hubby and I have been staying home all the time and only going out when we have to. Today is a going-out day - to Costco. Not as sexy as this card shows, granted, but certainly reminiscent of what used to be our weekly trips there before the virus. And there is sure to be some hand-holding today. 

So the message for today is our relationship. I like that. ❤️

How it turned out - There was definitely some hand-holding and reminiscing about various things in our lives. And there was an added element because of my Hubby’s limited vision. Being his extra eyes, I was keeping him out of traffic patterns when he was going more slowly, and pointing out when upcoming corners of things might become obstacles for him. There was a sweet intimacy in the caring and trust between us.

Day 11 - June 11, 2020
___
Show me what today will be like.

Mother-Tarot-Rohrig-Tarot-Queen-of-Wands
Queen of Wands - Rohrig Tarot

Well hello, boob. You are definitely a sign of life and passion appropriate for this Queen, but you aren’t the kind of life and passion I will be having today. I am thinking this will be more a day of expediency. Timing is going to be everything.

I have a list of things I want to get done today but will need to work around the schedules of others, over which I have no control. While mulling over how I can possibly accomplish everything I want to get done, my eye fell on the key in her headdress. The key for today will be having a plan. This Queen certainly knows how to plan her work and work her plan so, on my way over to dropping off the car for maintenance this morning, my game plan for today will be taking shape. Hopefully it will be a good and efficient plan for all the nuanced timing I will be encountering.

How it turned out - My plan was a good one and I managed to get everything on my list completed. By the end of the day, I was feeling like a very sensible and efficient Queen of Wands.

Day 12 - June 12, 2020
___
Will we all be safe this weekend?

Mother-Tarot-Ace-of-Cups-Rohrig-Tarot
Ace of Cups - Rohrig Tarot

We have been invited to spend the weekend with some of our local family. All of us have been missing each other and are looking forward to being together, but I am wondering if we will be safe being under the same roof. Because we have been sequestering at our homes, most likely we will be safe. That is certainly the hope.

This card shows the gift of filling the heart by initiating a connection. I want to believe the love energy radiating outward will be protective of the family. It is a sad sign of our times that safety even needs to be taken into consideration. Darn this virus!

30 Day Tarot Challenge - Week Three - June 15-21, 2020 - Rohrig Tarot

Already we are into the third week of the 30 Day Tarot Challenge going on in a Facebook group of the same name. Where does the time go?! I love our Tarot group, full of great people, with a lot of caring and sharing for all Tarot reading levels. If you are interested, definitely check them out.
My daily Challenge cards and interpretations will be included here on my blog, posted in groups of weeks. The deck I have been using throughout this challenge is the Rohrig Tarot. Created in 1995 and beloved by many (including me),  the English-USA version has been out of print for a long time. This deck is based on the Thoth system and gives me very deep readings. The deep readings are why I love it so much and why it is such a treasure to me.  ___________________________________________________ WEEK THREE  June 15-21, 2020 ___________________________________________________

30 Day Tarot Challenge - Week One - June 1-7, 2020 - Rohrig Tarot

I belong to a fun and friendly Tarot group on Facebook, ‘30 Day Tarot Challenge.’ (You should check them out.) Each year we have a couple of Tarot challenges, where we draw daily cards and post pics of them with our interpretations. Our first challenge this year is for the month of June. My daily cards and interpretations will be posted in the group and here on my blog. For the blog, I will post them in groups of weeks.  
The deck I will be using throughout this challenge is the Rohrig Tarot. I have loved this deck since the image on the box cover jumped out at me in a bookstore back in 1997. Although I came to realize after purchasing the deck that it is based on the Thoth system, rather than the Rider-Waite, on which I learned to read Tarot, I found, nevertheless, that it always gives me deep readings. And that is why I love it so much. Sadly, the English-USA version has been out of print for a very long time, which makes my deck even more precious to me. ___________________________…

30 Day Tarot Challenge - Week Four - June 22-30, 2020 - Rohrig Tarot

Can’t believe we are already into the last week of the 30 Day Tarot Challenge! Our Facebook Tarot group of the same name is so much fun. We are Tarot readers of all levels and we learn so much through our sharing of our card meanings and how they apply to our lives.
Continuing into this last week, my daily Challenge cards and interpretations will be included here on my blog and the deck used will be the Rohrig Tarot. Although I learned Tarot on the RWS system, I love this Thoth-based deck because it gives me such deep readings. Out of print for a long time now, it still remains a personal treasure. ___________________________________________________ WEEK FOUR  June 22-30, 2020 ___________________________________________________

Tarot Card of the Day - Ace of Cups on a Wedding Day - Druidcraft Tarot

December 21, 2019
I asked for a message for today and drew the Ace of Cups

DruidCraft Tarot
_________________________________________

What a perfect card for today...  I am officiating a wedding this afternoon. 
A wedding is a time of emotional new beginnings for the newlyweds and for all those who love them.  And lucky me, I will get to share in that love and joy today. 
This card is a beautiful reflection of the deeply sincere human emotions we experience at a wedding, as we recognize ourselves in the words of hope and promise that surround the wedding couple. 
Tarot is an amazing mirror of our lives.

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Staying on the Path - Gaian Tarot - 7 of Air (Swords)

December 5, 2019
What is a good thing for me to be aware of today?
7 of Air (Swords)
Deck used - Gaian Tarot
_________________________________________
When I first drew this card, I was a bit surprised. My understanding of the traditional Rider-Waite version of the 7 of Swords is a thief getting away with stealing. But this image implies something different. In the Gaian Tarot deck, this card is about making a decision to either stay on the trail you are already traveling or looking further to see if there is a revised route that could be even better.

What first jumped out to me was the map, with the mountains drawn in the distance. Sure enough, this hiker stands at a distance from the mountains and is already on the way. But the mountains aren’t the destination - the first lake is. Or so s/he thought when she began this journey. The first lake is where most travelers go. That is the weight loss goal. She’s not there yet but, from her current vantage point, she now has a wider view. She…

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Planning to Begin Again - The Star Tarot - 5 of Pentacles

July 1, 2020
Will I be Successful This Time?
5 of Pentacles
Deck used - The Star Tarot
_________________________________________
As I plan to begin my weight loss journey again very soon, I have set a daunting goal to give up the foods that have the most pull over me - sugar and flour. I know this is going to be difficult for all kinds of reasons and asked if I will be successful in my goal.
This card is disheartening. But I do notice the bottom right point of the star is pointing to a mountain. It seems to be saying that, yes, I can overcome but it will be difficult. Those white mountains even look like piles of flour and sugar. My nemises!
The person is bent forward as she moves on in her quest. Is she scared? Is she humbled by the challenge? Is she giving up before she starts? I think she is scared but determined.
She knows this is not going to be easy and she is worried about how hard she is assuming it is going to be. But there are a couple of good signs for her; the upper star points ar…

Tarot Card of the Day - 10 of Boons (Pentacles) - Forest of Enchantment Tarot

What is a good message for today?
10 of Boons (Pentacles) reversed 
Deck used - Forest of Enchantment Tarot
_________________________________________

Well this message is clear… the Thanksgiving holiday is over. It was wonderful spending days with family, immersed in fun, love and happiness, but all good things have their time. Now it is time to get back to work and normal daily life.

This card is totally right, though. Family is truly a huge boon and blessing in my life... and more family time over the Christmas holidays are right around the corner. 😊❤️

Trump Impeachment Trial - The Tower - Tarot Grand Luxe

January 23, 2020
Will the Senate vote to remove Trump?
The Tower
Tarot Grand Luxe

_________________________________________
As I do Tarot draws about the Trump impeachment trial and post some here, I preface by saying that I am not a fan of our current president. I feel he is a danger to our nation and our ideals and he has corrupted our government. Or perhaps I should say that because his own corruption is so blatant and pervasive, he is bringing the corruption in our government into the light. What I am seeing in Trump and his henchmen is heartbreaking. They are far removed from my own concept of our nation, its principles and what I believe us to be and stand for.

While watching and experiencing this pivotal point in our nation’s history, I am curious to see how the Tarot reflects that. My choice of deck is important. I really like the Tarot Grand Luxe. It is modern, bold, unequivocal and reads very well for me. It is especially powerful for readings on Trump and politics so I bought …

Tarot Card of the Day - Love and Christmas Cookies - The Lovers - Osho Zen Tarot

How I am feeling about this past weekend.
The Lovers
Osho Zen Tarot
_________________________________________
This card is right on point. I am still in the glow of spending happy time with my family this past weekend. The over-all meanings of this card are love and connection, with an added element of choice. And all of that showed up this weekend.

The first meaning of The Lovers card is love and connection. We have an annual Family Cookie Day, where we all gather to decorate Christmas cookies. This year it turned into Family Cookie Weekend. The grandkids came over on Saturday to help me roll, cut and bake the cookies and then spend the night. Their parents came over the following morning to decorate the cookies with them. It is always fun having everyone over for this event but having the kids cut and bake the cookies was not a practical idea. Aside from the fact that it was a HUGE mess (oh my goodness!), most of the young hands are not yet skilled enough for rolling the dough. Their m…
