Knitter's Tarot Tuesday Reading...

Knitting Tarot card for this week...

 

The Ten of Swords

Represents being "pinned down", and helplessness, the dark clouds, a bleak

situation, this card is the most grim card in the deck.

However the golden sky in the distance signifies a brighter horizon.

This week, perhaps we should lay our knitting aside and meditation on any

difficulties you are having. Until the knitting clouds blow over.

 

The Tarot is a deck of cards that originated over 500 years ago in northern Italy. Although the Tarot was first used in a game called Triumphs, it was quickly adopted as a tool for divination, and popularized by occult societies such as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The early Tarot symbolism was deeply rooted in Medieval and Renaissance Europe.

Today, the Tarot is far and away the most popular tool for spiritual introspection in the West.

Enjoy your knitting this week

  1. I used to read Tarot cards way back when. I haven't seen any in ages.

    Thanks for all the info on them.

  2. I've been wondering, how do you decide which card to feature? do you actually draw it that day? while I'm conceptually intrigued by tarot and have cards and books, I've never gotten to the point of actually studying it.
