The Emerald Tolemac Empress 

The Empress is the archetypal Earth Mother, the Anima, the Feminine Principle, Demeter, Freyja and the Goddess of Fertility.

The Empress is seated beneath a large lush tree and her throne is on the grass next to a river, demonstrating the Empress’s deep emotional connection with Mother Earth and life. She draws her sense of peace from the tree and the water and is rejuvenated by the energy of nature. Continue Reading

The High Priestess Emerald Tolemac 

Here we see Merlin’s wife Gwendolyn (also known by several other names). Some of those names are Nimue, Vivianne and Ninianne. In our version of The High Priestess Emerald Tolemac card, she is Gwendolyn.

The overriding theme of the High Priestess card is the connection between opposites: exoteric and esoteric and matter and spirit. If this card appears in your spread, it’s time to gain clarity and shift your emphasis from what is seen, to what is unseen. It’s time to use your intuition and access the deep recesses of your subconscious mind, for therein lies an abundance of knowledge waiting to be transmuted to wisdom. Continue Reading

The left arm is essentially hanging at his side (earth), the forearm lifted enough to allow the hand to form the letter “M” that we see in sign language when deaf people communicate. This simply reinforces the M needed for the Mastery that is required when one fuses their base self with their higher self and becomes the Magician. Continue Reading

The Fool Emerald Tolemac 

The Fool reminds us that while going with our intuition may seem foolish, especially to others, when we do so, we are supported by spirit. While spirit is unseen, it does manifest itself in the world around us. When we recognise that spirit is leading us, it makes itself more available to us. Furthermore, the message of this card is that only when we journey with purity and steadfast faith toward the promptings of spirit, can we hope to achieve the great destiny meant for us. We can’t hope to bring to fruition a successful outcome for the challenge that we are facing without that purity and faith. In a Tarot spread, The Fool reminds us of these things. Continue Reading
