This year, for my birthday I have drawn a card of happiness, satisfaction, and fertility. The Queen of Wands is a card that could signify a plan to accomplish a large amount of work in a small period of time, a balance of the shadow and the light parts of ourselves, or a helpful, supportive [...]

The XVII of Trumps, the Star, is the card I drew for myself on my 40th birthday. This card represents the year to come.

Lust in the Blind Spot

By | 2017-12-30T19:15:43+12:00 January 7th, 2017|Tarot|

This is the first year I didn't draw a Trump Card straight away on my birthday. (Previous birthday readings here: https://caelanhuntress.com/tag/tarot/) During years past, I have always set aside some time for introspection and journaling on my birthday. For the past six years, I have draw a card from the Thoth Tarot Deck, and used the symbolism [...]

The Hanged Man (Trump XII) is a card of opposites, paradox, waiting, and patience. This is the card for my 38th year. Every year I draw a tarot card for my birthday. Reviewing the cards I've drawn in the past, and the years I've had alongside them, allows me to view my own life through the lens of [...]

The Year of the Hermit

By | 2017-12-30T19:15:59+12:00 January 7th, 2015|Tarot|

This year, the Tarot card I have drawn on my birthday is a mighty fitting one for where I am in my life. The Hermit has two interpretations: the recluse who lives alone, or, the returning hero, who learned fantastic new things during a solitary journey into the wide world beyond. This card is drawn when [...]

Every year, I draw a Tarot card on my birthday. Starting with a full deck, every birthday I draw a Trump card, to symbolize the year ahead. 2010 – the year of the Fool 2011 – the year of Art 2012 – the year of Fortune 2013 – the year of the Aeon And now, [...]

A new Age.

This year, I drew the Aeon for my birthday. This card is really well timed in my life. This is a Saturn Return, ending (and beginning) another 7-year-cycle in my life. Carl Jung study groups traditionally do not admit students younger than 35, for it is believed that the human mind does not fully mature [...]

Fortunate Man.

This year, I find my fortune. The birthday is a perfect time to reassess your life, look back on what you have accomplished, and look ahead at where you are going. To aid in my planning, I draw a Tarot card every year, to help me navigate the road ahead. This year, I drew the [...]

Art, or Alchemy, is the XIV Trump in the Thoth deck of Tarot cards. Every year, on my birthday, I draw a card that symbolizes the coming year.  Last year was the year of the Fool, whence I drew the 0 of Trumps, that beginning of journeys that leads you into the unknown. At the [...]
