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 TarotCreated 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.

Day 15 - June 15, 2020
___
Give me a message for this rainy day.

Mother-Tarot-Rohrig-Tarot-The-Magician-card
The Magician reversed - Rohrig Tarot

This reversed Magician could be a few things.
1 - It could reference my harsh sinus headache that started yesterday, letting me know a storm was coming. 
2 - It could mean today is a day to do some inner work - inner in terms of getting things done in the office and/or developing some ideas mulling around in my mind. 
3 - It could be referencing someone doing something nefarious against Hubby and me, but that seems unlikely. 

I’m thinking it’s the first two together. 

How it turned out - This has been a really productive day. I had a lot of things I wanted to accomplish and they are all finished. While working, I was also thinking a lot about my ideas and analyzing the pros and cons. In the midst of all that, I was dealing with a sinus headache and earache that sinus pills didn’t take away. Plus it was raining all day, which was the source of the aches. 

My feeling that options 1 and 2 above were going to play into the day were how the day actually went. Glad it was them and not option 3, where somebody might be doing something against Hubby and me!

Day 16 - June 16, 2020
___
Show me a card that will fit today’s Challenge prompt.

Mother-Tarot-Knight-King-of-Cups-Rohrig-Tarot
Knight (King) of Cups - Rohrig Tarot

(In the Rohrig Tarot deck, the Kings are called Knights and Knights are called Princes.)

I was experimenting with my card draw today. I don’t normally see the Challenge’s prompt before drawing my daily card and always ask my own question. But today, for some reason, I asked to be shown a card that would fit today’s prompt. When I later saw the prompt - which was to be shown an aspect of my shadow - I was wondering how this card might fit that. 

And then my husband started talking to me about his analysis of something. He has a tendency to be long-winded and also speaks very softly, which makes me strain to hear him. Asking him to speak up only gets me about 4 words louder before he goes back to softly again. He doesn’t realize he does this and my straining to hear him makes me feel antsy, frustrated and quietly annoyed. That happened moments before I started posting about my card. 

How it turned out - So immediately I was shown a shadow side of my King of Cups, who tries to be so caring and patient, even when I’m quietly annoyed. And looking at the card again, I see a look of annoyance on his face that I never noticed before. Hmm...

It’s amazing how quickly today’s prompt became a mirror.

Day 17 - June 17, 2020
___
Today’s Challenge prompt - Show me my reflection.

Mother-Tarot-Rohrig-Tarot-Page-Princess-of-Cups
Princess (Page) of Cups - Rohrig Tarot

(The Rohrig Tarot calls the Page a Princess) 
 
Soaring joy! What a great reflection. I’ll take it.

I just remembered reading some time back that my Myers-Briggs personality type, INFP, corresponds to the Page-Princess of Cups. I found that website again and here is what it says about the INFP type.
___
“Much like its ‘mother’ INFJ (Queen of Cups), this personality type is deeply idealistic and devoted to living life in the pursuit of a higher, more noble cause than its own self-enrichment. This type tends to innately see the best in others and, as a rule, relies on feeling and intuition rather than on logic when forming associations in public or at work. At best, this personality type can be a ‘miracle worker’ that can inspire others to great works; ill-dignified, though, it can turn into an irrational control freak when it discovers that its loyalty to others was at times misplaced and is now in need of an emotional compensating mechanism.
Likely careers: Counseling and social work, psychology, clergy, music, writing.”
___

On point on everything. Wow.

My thanks to the website, 78 Revelations a Minute  for their post on the correspondences between the Myers-Briggs personality types and the Tarot court cards. It’s a fascinating read and, certainly in my case, very accurate.

Day 18 - June 18, 2020
___
Today’s Challenge prompt - How can I manifest my desires?

Mother-Tarot-the-Magician-card-reversed-Rohrig-Tarot
The Magician reversed - Rohrig Tarot

Another day of drawing the card before reading the Challenge prompt. I am liking how the cards turn out when I ask to be shown a card for the day’s Challenge prompt before even seeing it. 

The prompt for today was, “How can I manifest my desires?” and the card drawn is the reversed Magician. It definitely fits. For me, reversed cards often indicate something going on in a person’s inner world and I am currently in the process of mulling over how best to implement an important life change. Once I have it all figured out, it will be time to act. 

And therein lies the answer to the prompt about manifesting my desires; 
Plan my work, work my plan, and do it for right reasons.

I love how Tarot speaks.

Day 19 - June 19, 2020
___
Question - Show me a message for today.
+
Today’s Challenge prompt - 
How am I blocking / resisting manifesting what I want?

MotherTarot-9ofwands-theemperor-RohrigTarot
9 of Wands + The Emperor - Rohrig Tarot

I wanted to draw two cards for today; one for a daily message and one for the Challenge prompt, although I had not yet read the prompt when I drew the cards. The meanings of today’s cards spoke to me of a much higher perspective than only myself and they absolutely blew me away. 

Question - Show me a message for today. ... 9 of Wands
While wondering what this card might mean, it came to me in a flash that today is Juneteenth, the date the last enslaved people here in America learned they had been freed 2½ years earlier. What a perfect card and image for this message.

Then I drew the card for the Challenge prompt.

Prompt - How am I blocking / resisting manifesting what I want? ... The Emperor 
Not yet knowing the prompt at the time of the draw, I was curious how this card might apply. When I later read the prompt, I knew immediately how it applied. 

The Emperor is saying the resistance / blocking to the goal of true freedom for the slaves and their descendants is ongoing institutionalized racism. 

Powerful messages.
___
This is not at all where I expected the cards to go today. Sometimes Tarot can be so humbling.

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. ___________________________…

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.

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 - 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…

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 …
