Dream Work, Interpreting and Sharing the Fantasy of the Psyche

I had a very meaningful dream last night that revealed a lot to me and brought up things that I already knew but had not fully come to terms with. So I decided to open up the day with the topic of Dreams and their Interpretation.

Then I did a reading to help with Dream Work

In sync with today's theme about Dreams and the Ocean of Psyche I did a reading about Dreamwork #Reversals again for #InnerWork Psychoanalysis and Self-Reflection. Using the #VoyagerTarot by James Wanless #StrengthRx #SevenofWandsRx #HeirophantRx grounded with #TwoofCrystalsRx Accepting our human/mortal feelings of weakness and fear as we reject external direction to find inner guidance and build #InnerStrength and #InternalCourage Dreamwork, and reflective analytical Psychoanalysis can be scary as we face ourselves, our inner demons and shadows of doubt in the future. So accept those "human" elements of ourselves, and don't try to keep a mental hold on it all. Allow our dreams to throw us topsy turvy with waves of confusion. Be one with the chaos and allow inner revelations to come forth. #topsyturvy #chaos #Psyche #Ocean #humanness #mortality #fear #lackofcourage #distrust #rejection #innerguidance #inspirational #tarot card for #Dreamwork #dreams #dreaminterpretation #cartomancy #selfreflection #psychoanalysis #symbolism #innerwork Luna Http://oceanbluepsyche.com

Tarot & Oracle Cards: Similarities & Differences

Tarot & Oracle Cards : Similarities & Differences

Tarot and Oracle cards are both used for divination purposes. Tarot cards follow a standardized format of 78 cards including the 22 Major Arcana illustrating the Fool’s Journey and the 56 Minor Arcana showing aspects of life. There are four suits: Swords/Air/Mind, Pentacles/Coins/Earth/Security (usually of the physical realm), Wands/staves/Fire/Drive, and Cups/Water/Emotions.

Oracle Cards are any cards created for divination purposes that do not follow a standardized format such at Tarot, Lenormand, or Poker. Poker cards can be used for divination, but you don’t have to. These are CARDS, you can just treat them as pretty Cards if you want.

The two most commonly used formats for Tarot are the Rider-Waite or Crowley-Thoth. Beginners are often encouraged to start with one of those decks because of the vast amount of learning material available for those. Rider-Waite is the most popular. Even though I do not own either or those decks, some of the decks that I use do follow the “themes” behind either the Rider-Waite or Crowley-Thoth format.

Creating Your Own Deck

Most artists will pick a format and create accordingly. Tarot is a profound collective of symbolism and psychoanalytical processes that is wonderful to both study and work with. What is becoming more popular now, is the creation of Oracle decks. With Oracle decks, the Artist or Designer does not have to create all 78 cards; they can create as Many or as Few as they want! I kept talking about Marcella Kroll’s deck because I love the strong symbolism and also how she incorporates Runes with Alchemical Elements, Native American Symbols, Egyptian Symbols, and original symbols based off of topics that have deep meaning to her. In general, have fun browsing the many different Tarot, Oracle, Lenormand, and Poker decks that are out there! And enjoy creating your own when you are inspired to!
