Due to the popularity of the new moon spread, once done by our witch sister Sophie, we decided to offer you a monthly spread, to help you prepare for the energies to come.
This tarot deck, by the author and artist Patrick Valenza, is inspired by medieval icons paintings accented with a gothic touch.
The author has allowed himself to be carried away by the arts of ancient Greece, and has added some abstract turns.
These odd and distorted figures touch us by their very human side too.
This large-scale project, spread over several years, where he developed his art in all his creativity.
His muses and inspirations were cemeteries, abandoned psychiatric hospitals and allruins architectures.
Even though this tarot may seem dark, but it is rather a source of self-empowerment.
By his nightmarish side, he invites us to look into us, in order to find the strength and the power to dissolve the shadow that haunts us.
May he inspire you as he knows so well how to do it on myself...
The hierophant represents universal inspiration, control over our spiritual needs and conformity. The full moon energy is at its peak, let's take the time to create and practice according to our personality. We must ask ourselves what is hindering our freedom of expression with our personal beliefs and values. Let's take advantage of this sublime lunar energy to explore, without fear, the established principles that manipulate our lives.
The Witch's Advice: Let's free ourselves from the mass and find our own truth deep inside.
The nameless arcane represents the changes, the metamorphosis and sometimes the losses. In this waning moon, accept the end of some aspects of our lives to welcome renewal. Let us know that death does not mean the end, but rather the transition in a cycle of continuous change. The changes that will take place this week are inevitable and permanent, it will be impossible for us to go back to what it was before these changes.
The Witch's Advice: Let's accept these changes for the better, to allow us to metamorphose and evolve.
Temperance represents excess, conflicts but also patience. In this new moon week, let's not make any final decisions that we would regret later. Let's take time for ourselves, to heal physically and emotionally. We will be confronted with some unpleasant situations that will call into question our relations with certain people. Let's take a little distance to breathe a little and think before taking action.
The Witch's Advice: Let's take the time to recharge with the elements, and do not let the harmful energies become embedded in our lives.
The chariot represents self-imposed limits, new directions, and procrastination. With the energy of this growing moon, let us look for plans, promising opportunities. This means that we must focus our energy on the desires we want to see realized, as well as prepare for the battle of our lives to achieve it. No more excuses must slow down the access to our dreams.
The Witch's Advice: Let's free our imagination and use it for attainable plans.
