Reason in the Face of a Storm

For my "week ahead" cards, I decided to use two brand new decks that have me entirely enamored: the Stone Tarot and the Prisma Visions Tarot. I didn't pick any particular positions in favor of simply sitting back and seeing how the two cards speak to me. They are:

Stone Tarot: Page of Swords
Prisma Visions Tarot: 5 of Wands
Stone Tarot / Prisma Visions Tarot
Sigh. Look how beautiful! This pair has a couple of significant meanings for me that already come to mind....

First of all, the Page looks a lot like me wondering what I'm going to write about for the next blog hop. It's been on my mind lately, as the next hop is scheduled for August 8th and I've just signed up to participate. I have a few ideas for topics, but nothing that's won the competition just yet.

The birds in the Page remind me of Huginn and Muninn, Odin's ravens (and it might actually be them, since Huginn means "thought" and Muninn means "mind" - very appropriate for this card!). That might be worth pondering to see what inspiration it offers. I may even do some studying to prepare for this one.....

Secondly, this card combination feels like a voice of reason in the face of a storm. Or just getting to the core of a complex situation, aka "What does this all mean?" I have a team meeting coming up within the next week which should be interesting as one member is leaving and another is experiencing a position shift that will have some impact on organizational structure. I expect there to be lots of discussion and many voices in the mix as we navigate our way forward.

The strong presence of air (Swords) and fire (Wands) tells me that I'm in for an active week, but I'm good with that. I'm feeling ready to see what action comes my way, and what action flows from within!


  1. Oh I love the Prisma Visions, the art work is so dreamy and I love how the Page of Swords is clearing a path through the bickering and niggling of the 5 of Wands.
    Have a good week BB

    1. Thanks! Your recent blog post using the Prisma Visions finally pushed me over the edge to purchase it, and I'm enjoying it very much!! In the end the Page has been very helpful in dealing with my 5 of Wands, creative chaos! I sat down and poured out my blog hop post yesterday morning! :)

  2. I agree, there is something about this pairing that is satisfying and accessible. I'm loving these glimpses of the Stone Tarot.

    1. Thanks, Rose! Yeah, I like the "cool" energy of the Page mixed with the "heat" of the Wands! :)
