THE HIEROPHANT : traditions, ritual and ceremony, pursuit of knowledge and deeper meaning, belief systems, the teacher
While I was shuffling the cards my mind wandered and I thought about the goddess Hecate and how to better connect with her. It makes complete sense that I would draw this card as it represents the link between us and the Divine. I feel as if Hecate is the teacher I’m drawn to as I journey along this path. From the handful of books I’ve read about Hecate, she seems to be the type that doesn’t mess around when it comes to ones’ path.
What card best represents you/your personality (or, is most often pulled to represent you in a spread)? [ full list of questions here ]
I must say, this question is easy as I identify most with The Star.
Meaning-wise, it best fits my personality as I am optimistic (generally speaking), generous, and am fairly intuitive. I mean, not to toot my own horn or anything, heh.
What card do you pull the most often? Why do you think that is the case? [ full list of questions here ]
Based on my previous daily tarot draws with my Rider-Waite deck (note : I did not start taking photos of my throws for this site until November), the card that appeared the most was the Six of Cups. It makes sense this card would come up often as I have an 2.5 year old son. My days are spent caring for him, playing games, guiding and teaching him. Seeing him grow and change before my eyes reminds me to lighten up, and live in the now.
Which card do you dread pulling the most? [ full list of questions here ]
I don’t dread any of the cards per se. Though I do find myself a feeling a little anxious when I draw The Tower. I’m a creature of habit, I like making plans etc. so any inkling of change sort of freaks me out. That’s life though, and I’ve learned that all I have to do is breathe. I know change is necessary and it brings lessons and new experiences.
What is your favorite card (both in terms of the deck’s artwork and divinatory meaning)? [ full list of questions here ]
This is a hard one because each image on the Shadowscapes deck is so beautifully done. I previously featured The Empress card because the artwork is one of my favorites. However, in terms of both artwork and divinatory meaning, that card would be the Queen of Cups.
What was the first spread you learned? [ full list of questions here ]
The very first spread I learned was the three-card spread (past, present, future). It’s still one of my favorite spreads because of it’s simplicity.
