The Wheel of Fortune Emerald Tolemac 

This is a very complex card with many, many symbols on it. As such, it will require a very long explanation.

The Wheel of Fortune card is ruled by the four fixed signs of the zodiac: Taurus, Leo, Aquarius and Scorpio, as represented by the Bull, the Lion, the Angel, and the Eagle, which can be found at the four corners of the card. The fixed nature of these signs means that they are stable and dependable. This should reassure the questioner, for it can be alarming to get Wheel of Fortune in a reading; it seems that the entire smorgasbord of experience is at one’s fingertips. In Hebrew tradition there is a prayer that can be translated as, “The whole world is a very narrow bridge; the important thing is not to be afraid.” This lets us know that although there are a myriad of options, there is a path that resonates most with a particular soul and, never fear because this card can help you attune to that resonance.

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 Moon Card Meaning

Another of the cards that can be seen quite negatively, the Moon warns of fears, anxieties, confusion and subterfuge, but can also represent the power of the imagination, unexpected possibilities and illumination of a more subtle kind. The path may be tough, but it’s probably the right one, and it’ll work out okay.

The Star Card Meaning

The Star Card Meaning

This is the wish card, and many people’s favourite. It’s all about hope, generosity and wishes being granted, although it can have a kind of dreamy quality about it, lacking in grounding or real belief. A bit of self-doubt and negativity can creep in here, but on the whole it’s a lovely card to pull, especially if you’re hoping for something special.
