Tarot Tuesday: Pick Your Card from the Radiant Rider-Waite!

You’re done with the negative energy that’s so often associated with the beginning of the week. It’s time to see what the universe has in store for you now! This week’s pull is from the Radiant Rider-Waite deck by Avia Venefica. It’s essentially what’s thought of as a traditional tarot deck, but the illustrations have been recolored and remastered to give them new life. I highly recommend this deck and guide book! If you’re interested in a personal reading, please see the bottom of this post.

Study the picture below. If you have a question or situation you’re concerned about, hold that in the front of your mind as you choose your card. You can also simply pick the one that calls to you. When you’re ready, scroll down to find the meaning of your card.











#1 – The Hierophant: The Hierophant is a call to seek spiritual guidance. Rely on tradition and ceremony, and seek the counsel of authority figures. Perhaps this is a time for you to get in touch with your spiritual side, or it could be a sign to seek help and counseling with deep issues that’ve been bothering you.

#2 – Temperance: Moderation and balance are key to leading a healthy lifestyle and to protecting the world around us. Focus on your health and healing, and maintain balance wherever you can. Take action to bring about harmony.

#3 – The Empress: The Empress represents birth and new life, as well as motherhood and feminine influence. This could represent literally pregnancy, or the birth of a new idea. It is a reminder to nurture and protect those who need it. The wheat fields surrounding her remind us to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
