This week’s Tarot card reading comes from the Stones suit of The Wildwood Tarot, with the keyword of “skills”. Combined with the context of “What we can Change”, we’re entering into an interesting time!
The Eight of Stones is often about taking stock, developing and honing our skills. As the image depicts, it shows someone who has isolated themselves to craft items of use from oil lamps and arrow heads to bowls and other tools.
The trick for the reminder of this week (as Scorpio’s influence hits us on three sides from Saturn, Venus and the Moon) as we dig deep and find the skills within. This could be a time to start a new project for the winter (patchwork quilt, anyone?) that calls on new skills, or further stretches the skills we already have.
This time of year is also quite popular for Tarot Readings, as a lot of people finally give time to themselves and start to change things that haven’t been working so well so far this year. With only five months of the year left, the nights drawing in, the time for frolicking outside in the warm evening air departs. Summer is still with us, but the heat has gone, we’re on simmer (or the back burner).
It’s homework time! What skills do you need to brush up and improve upon? What new skills would you like to learn or investigate on learning this coming winter? Now is the time to start planning, investigating and ordering the books for reference that you’ll need. The other thing you’ll need is practice! Keep at it, even if at times, you don’t feel like it’s going anywhere. You won’t be sewing garments like a professional seamstress at the start, but if you keep practising and trying, improving with each stage, you’ll be there soon enough. Like Tarot reading, all and any practice makes perfect!
