Adventure Awaits! [Recreation For The Soul ~ Divine Play Newsletter March ’12]

Roxi Sim's painting of Spiral Spread

Adventure is this month’s theme. I thought of the time of  Spring Equinox and Aries that approaches. The Emperor, who is ruled by Aries is our Tarot Time exercise. He must take the lead. Your challenge is to discover your own leader moments.

In Lisa de St. Croix’s image shown in the newsletter, he is a builder. Joanna Powell Colbert also depicts him as such in her Gaian Tarot. Think of yourself as the builder of your life. Select from positive and joy-filled past experiences and build upon those for your future. Create the adventure of your own life!

Inside, Roxi Sim, creator of The Pearls of Wisdom Tarot shares a soul-enliven activity with us. You’ll also meet my 7 year old granddaughter who is just now discovering Tarot. I would love to see those of us with children and grandchildren open up to them this world of divine images and storytelling.

Enjoy the full newsletter here.

Have fun…it’s good for the soul!

Each month we present a tarot image. Immerse yourself in it and try the suggested activity.

Take a look here.

Express Yourself

“I am in the process of creating the TAROT DE ST. CROIX which has become a powerful tool for self awareness in the present moment. Synchronicities abound and I feel as if I am being guided on this journey. While I use my life as inspiration, the paintings are universal. It is my greatest wish that they become a tool for others on their own path of discovery.” ~ Lisa de St. Croix

The Sun

One way Lisa expresses herself is through painting. Now, let her art help you show your true colors. Look at the imagery of her most recent work, The Sun tarot card. Let it inspire a story in you. Tells us who you are.

Here are a few questions from The Tarot Game  play  to get you started.

1. What gifts do you show the world and what do you still keep in the shadows?

2. What are you experiencing in this very moment?

3. How do you express yourself?

Alternatively, create a “once upon a time” story driven by the image you see. Who is this woman? Where is she? Why does she take this posture? What are her intentions?
Learn intuitive tarot card reading through game play. Immerse yourself in the colors, lines, symbols and story of a card to help define it for you. Place these gems in your tarot tool box. Later when The Sun comes up in a reading, one or two may shine for you to share.

Step Away From The Little White Book

Everything we need to know exists within us.

Tarot de St. CroixThink about all the writings from individuals expressing their gift to the world. Showing us how to do this or that, and demonstrating ways to improve our lives. You have this gift; a deep inner knowing of self.

This knowing extends to understanding the meaning in a tarot card.

I want you to look at the card shown and really sit with it and absorb the images, the colors and any detail that “sings” to you. Write a description of what you see in the comments below or in your own journal.

Read back what you’ve written. This is a valid definition of the card.

Practice this simple exercise often, especially with a new deck, to improve your intuitive skills.
