Across the Bridge to the Tarot Living Land

February 1, 2018

A new day has been offered to me. Once again, with a cup of java in one hand, and gratitude in the other, I make my way to the World of Tarot Living.  The sun glistens off the fresh dust of snow on the bridge that takes me there. A nip in the air awakens me. Today, I come with offerings of gratitude to this world that embraces me through radiant love.

As I cross the bridge, I notice a singular card waving to me to take it. The Sun from the Shapeshifter deck by D.J. Conway and Sirona Knight. A deck of decades ago, I thought. I wonder if it is still available? I took the offering and held the Sun Tarot card gently in my hand, while I crossed the bride. On a golden filigree table, with a gold chalice, filled with sparkling water, laid a note.

Shapeshifter Tarot Deck

Today, sit with the Sun card and reflect on what you are contributing to the world. What rays of warmth do you offer others? Where do you hold back? What clouds up your vision, so others cannot feel or see your rays?

My eye caught something lying under the table, so I bent down to check it out and saw the 10 of Pentacles. Beside it laid a note. This card represents where you choose to hide your light. Contemplate on this.

“Hmm. The 10 of Pentacles deals with the wealth of a family. The legacy passed down. This position of that particular card makes sense. I don’t shine any light on money, legacy or family. It’s void of my light. It is void of my presence. “

Wiping a tear or two, I straighten my spine and glanced around for a place to sit. To the right was a grove of willow trees, each blanketed in a fresh dusting of snow. A park bench neatly tucked in between them greeted me, as I made my way to it.

Comfort enveloped me, as I cushioned myself in this grove of trees. “Willow trees, speak to me, please Show me how to heal this 10 of Pentacles.”

An hour, perhaps more, or perhaps just a few minutes passed by, as I sat there letting my tears roll by when I felt something touch my shoulder. A tarot card nuzzled my neck, and it was the Goddess of the Fire element, known as swords, in the Shapeshifter deck. In Rider-Waite tarot, this card would be called the King of Swords. Represented in this deck as Bridget, it is suggested I remember who I really am. To go forth and share my talents and skills. The Sword, in my view for me, is Excalibur. It cuts through illusions and teaches another way.

I sit and ponder how this card can bring back a legacy, family connection and other attributes of the 10 of Pentacles. Aha. Yes. Illusion. I am not alone. Cut through that, and be the giver of knowledge to those who seek. This will help to lessen the blocks, or clouds of my own sun-rays.

The Bridge of Tarot Living offered me a priceless gift today. It showed me where I block my ray of light. It also aided me in honoring who I am and what I am here to do.

I thank the Spirit of the cards and the Tarot Bridge for inviting me into the Land of Tarot Living.

Thank you for reading my blog. I do hope it teaches and inspires you. I am available for private readings. For more information, please email me at My Email

May your rays reach out for others to feel your warmth.
