What Does The Deck Say? February 21 2015


The Bosch Tarot is a series of collages based on the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. Using a unique set of meanings that is not derived from Waite, it will sometimes read direct, and sometimes read like a koan. It is a good deck for introspection and examination of internal motives.

Today’s cards: 4 of Chalices, Queen of Swords, & The Hierophant.

When the circumstances threaten to overwhelm, it is easy to fall back on bravado to fool others and yourself by giving the appearance of mastery. But such hollow displays only make it harder to recover. Be honest with yourself about what you are facing instead. It will not make the fear any lesser, but will give you a strong place from which to stand.
