There are some decks that we all know and love. And then there are the lesser known treasures. Deck of the Week is a really fantastic way to explore decks that are loved but under-used. Here you can see what decks other people are using and how they apply the cards to everyday situations.

And here is my card for yesterday and today:

Image

The Emperor, this card that means so much to me - and it appears regularly in my daily readings.

In the Quantum Tarot, he's associated with the Strong Force - the force that holds the universe together. It's structure, and the Freudian superego, and the Father's voice, and my husband's reassuring presence.

Ten days ago was my father's six year death anniversary. I feel closer to him in death than I ever was when he was alive. He was an Aries, and my husband is an Aries, too. My father was a coldhearted black Aries, with a malicious, hardly controlled temper that frightened me for life - even when he a sick, weak old dying man, I saw in him the bear-like angry man of my childhood. My husband is a warmhearted white Aries, with a strong will, a quick temper and a huge sense of humour that will always help us find a way to compromise and to understand each other. He was/is a strong father, demands much of his children but never frightened them. He jumped to their help whenever necessary. I gave my children the Ideal Father that I never had.

Whenever I see that Emperor, I'm glad that I didn't repeat patterns of the past and didn't marry a man like my father :-) And for me, every day is Emperor Day.

And for today, the Queen of Wands. Venus. Fiery, grand vision, it all sounds wonderful and Venus is my ruling planet. I greet the Evening Star every evening (and the Morning Star when she's up in the mornings again). The Queen of Wands is a queen I admire but I don't identify with her (ascendant Sagittarius doesn't matter). I can understand the Pentacles queen, the Cups queen, but the Wands and Swords queens have energy levels I can't match. But I should.

When I spoke with my son some days ago he said that I too easily excuse myself for things I don't do by saying "that's the way I am". He says there is no such thing. He spoke with the optimism of youth but he was right. So let's see where I can inject some Wands energy into my life.

After all, Wands cards have popped up repeatedly and told me to get on with my stuff, my ideas, my projects.

Isn't it time I should listen???

Today I got a sad reminder of how much of pain in my own backside I am!
I'm a Queen of Swords. I joke and play around but make no mistake, there's a way to do things and thats the right way!
Someone I have a lot of time for is I sense, going through a frustrating time and its making me want to sort it out for them. I mustn't repeat past mistakes and take all of the pressure on myself though.


Tomorrow's card I'm dreading! Please not my health :icon_cry:

Three of Pentacles - atomic structure - concrete plans of action. Work, dedication, that's a good motto for today and overall.

This week was an intense learning experience. The Quantum Tarot is really a wonderful deck, I'm so glad I have it. It's totally unique and the moment I started working with the book, it all made sense. That was a great tarot week :-)
