Hello, sweet Moonbeams. What a pleasure to share yet another installment of Tarot & Tea with you today. Although it’s a cloudy morning in Humboldt County, Sun and Moon Tarot has some sunshine in store for us! Card 19 of the Major Arcana, The Sun, is one of the best cards in the deck. Bringing warmth and illumination, The Sun gives life to us all. Understanding and acceptance of our true self is an important lesson that this card offers. In a reading, The Sun can be an indicator of glorious personal success and recognition. Additionally, it represents radiant health and vitality. The Sun reminds us to play and enjoy the life we’ve been granted. Unbridled joy and childlike enthusiasm are features of The Sun. We are able to place our complete confidence in both the provision of the Divine and in our own worthiness of the gifts The Sun provides.
The tea I’ve paired with The Sun is Lemon Meringue from Art of Tea. Now, here’s a tea for the sheer enjoyment of sipping! Green Rooibos gives a robust flavor without caffeine, while Orange peel keeps us optimistic. Organic Rose petals and Cornflower remind us to appreciate the little lovelies in life. The fresh sweetness of Lemon invigorates the senses and brings bright, solar energy into the body. Lemon Meringue is the perfect cup of tea to enjoy on a dreary day like this!
Our featured deck for this week is, quite appropriately, Sun and Moon Tarot by Vanessa Decort. With fresh, contemporary artwork, this deck gives a modern twist to ancient cultural symbols from spiritual systems as varied as Kabbalism and Taoism. By playfully incorporating mythology and astrology, Vanessa Decort gives unique interpretations of traditional Tarot, presenting a deck that is both insightful and accessible.
