Kings In Tarot

The Tarot Card Meanings Of The Kings

I want to do a deep dive into the meaning of each tarot card. The Rider Waite system is simply that: a system. Tarot is a tool to create a connection to our subconscious. You know more than you can imagine. I want to help you become a better tarot reader. You don’t have to do readings for anyone else but yourself. That’s mostly what I do currently, I read for myself to facilitate journaling and dealing with emotions. I only do a handful of emailed tarot readings a week. Let’s increase your knowledge of the Cards right now! Lets start with the court cards!

First up this week are KINGS!

Kings are considered to be the most mature of the Court Cards.  On my first deck  I designed  I put my father on the King of Cups card. In Painted Tarot I have him sitting on a sofa looking out soberly. My childhood could have been better, and if you know me, you may know more deeply of some of my trauma. But growing up I definitely wanted to be a fathers girl. I loved to cuddle with my dad on the sofa, while he watched his sci fi movies. My dad worked alot so I always viewed him as this mysterious figure that would sometimes come around with candy and a hug.

I think it’s a helpful remembering device to think of the kings as the Daddy cards! They are sort of the parents for the court cards. They have traveled through life successfully and are now at the pinnacle of experience and understanding. You can learn much from the kings. Thus, the Kings represent the fully developed personalities of each of the Suits. As people, Kings have full control over the feelings, emotions, thoughts and actions that form part of his personality. As such, they are stable and solid, and are highly capable of directing the flow of their energy to achieve their visions and goals. 

The kings definitely have their shit together. They like to manage, direct and stabilise the energy associated with their Suit. Kings like to be seen as the providers, taking responsibility for others’ well-being. Kings want to make a difference and have an impact on the world. They draw upon the various elements of their personalities to make their mark. On a physical level, Kings often represent older males aged 40 and above. While not all Kings have to be male, these Court Cards do represent dominant masculine energy – someone who controls and directs and who wants to be in command.

Pages conceive ideas, Knights act upon ideas, Queens nurture ideas and now Kings develop those ideas to an established and stable state. Thus, as an event, Kings signify the growth and maturity of an idea or concept right through until reaches completion.

I like the king cards.  They are the heroes of the sory. We think of kings as being the winners. “Zeus,” Museum of Olympia, Greece. In Greek mythology, Zeus (Jupiter in Roman mythology) was the king of heaven and Earth and of all the Olympian gods. … He was also known as the god of justice. He was named king of the gods in the special meeting that followed his overthrow of the god Cronus and the Titans.

King Of Cups

Be logical but stay compassionate and kiind! The King of Cups, like all the court cards in the suit of Cups, represents emotion, creativity, and the unconscious. Cups are filled with love, overflowing with abundance! The king of the cups is calm. He is a master of his own feelings, and remains in control of his emotions. Not to say that he represses those feelings and sentiments. On the contrary, the King of Cups represents the balance between the emotions and the intellect. Calm and collected, empathetic yet calculated. He is a master of compassion and kindness and his card often indicates strong bonds in a relationship based on temperance and understanding.

As an event, the King of Cups indicates a situation where you feel very emotionally balanced and in control. You have a very deep understanding of your feelings and emotions, and are able to connect with this when necessary. As you deal with some of the scenarios that life throws at you, draw on this deep emotional maturity to help you navigate these challenges. Also, know that this is an incredible gift you have and be open to sharing your emotional stability and calm approach with others. I think I made my father this card because it is everything I wish he was. I actually have never emotionally connected with my father and we don’t speak often. I love the idea of the King of cups being the perfect father. Masculine yet emotionally sensitive. 

King Of Pentacles

The King of coins is the ultimate provider!! The King of Pentacles represents abundance, security, ambition, power, stability, discipline, trustworthiness and control. He is a fatherly figure who likes to take care of others through providing advice, guidance and wisdom, as well as more material aspects such as financial support and wealth. He is a true provider and generates a lot of his self-worth from what he has accumulated and what he can share with others. Think generous big daddy warbucks. As an event, the King of Pentacles often indicates the final fulfilment of a creative task, business venture, or investment. Through diligence, responsibility and attention to detail you have achieved great things and can finally say that you have completed your task or attained your goal. You can now enjoy all that you have accomplished and the successes you have created. You have created a richness of life, not just financially but also spiritually, which will set you up very well for the future. The reverse of this card are the dangers of greed.

King Of Swords

The logic of the swords makes the king a respected leader but also often feared. Violence can be logical and a tool. The King of Swords is a symbol of intellectual power and authority, and has the courage and intellect to accomplish all that he desires. He represents judgement, command, and rulership. His character indicates the stern leadership of a judge, lawyer, or military commander whose emotions must be kept in check under the pressure of battle. When you encounter this card think of how the sword has two sides, good and bad. The King of Swords asks you to remain detached and objective in a specific situation, in order to ascertain the truth and seek out only the facts. You need to use your intellect to prove your point and succeed. Your education and experience are important but so are your day-to-day observations and thoughts. You can also solve problems by using history, rules, laws and diplomacy. Don;t let your emotions run away with you, sometimes you must put your feelings aside and let logic guide you to the correct solution.

King Of Wands

This card is the charismatic leader who unites people and gets shit done! The King of Wands represents pure fire energy. Unlike the other Wands court cards, he is not so interesting in actual creation and creativity, or in dreaming up ideas and implementing them himself. Instead, he is more inclined to take an idea and change the world to match his vision. As such he is a natural-born leader of all kinds of people, and he is very visionary. Once he sets himself a goal, he sticks to it and ensures that he can make it happen with the support of those around him. People naturally gravitate towards this King as they know he will get things done and will do it very well. He is a master, too, at being able to get other people to do his work for him, and keep them on-side throughout the process. The wands are all about action and hard work. The appearance of the King of Wands also suggests that an opportunity is presenting itself to you, and you now have the power to accept the opportunity and take on the challenge. You are the determining factor in this situation, and circumstances will navigate in the direction you steer them. Indecision or doubt will not be appropriate responses when clarity and confidence are required. However, as you progress in this new role, it will begin to feel more comfortable. I often feel energies from the emperor in this card.

Why Black Cats?

Black Cats are the cutest. I started my business Black Cat Consulting LLC in honor of my lap loving black Cat Boo. She has been by or on my side for the last 6 years. She has sat on my lap thru job changes and moves. The purrfect and loyal friend. She is dearer to me than any human being. She is the inspiration for everything I do. I created this deck in her honor. If you love cats or have a black cat yourself I hope you pawsitively love this deck.This deck is not bad luck. In fact this deck is super lucky! Black cats have long endured cruelty and horrible misconceptions due to myths and superstitions. Black Cats make the best companion for your tarot readings because they are so elegant!  Let’s start with the absolute outward beauty of the coat. Black cats look sophisticated. If the cat is kept healthy and fed excellent quality food, the black coat should be sleek, shiny and simply gorgeous. A black cat always looks as if they are ready for a formal night out on the town. In addition to the black cat’s elegance, they also look like a little panther gracefully roaming around. It’s as if you have a little piece of the wild in your home. A black cat walking or running through the house is the picture of grace, stealth, mystery and beauty.Black Cats are luck because they are not common! One in 22. There are as many as 22 recognized breeds that can have solid black coloring but the only all-black feline is the Bombay cat. The breed was developed in the 1950s by crossing Sable Burmese with black American Shorthairs with the aim to create a cat that resembled a miniature black panther.Black Cat myth and legend has ancient as a past as the history of Tarot! Cats were often cared for and fed by poor, lonely ladies who were accused of witchery and as a result, got a bad rep. Black cats were considered especially desirable partners for witches because of their ability to remain unseen in dark places and as witch hunts grew in popularity, many superstitions about uniformly black felines started to develop. Beginning in the Middle Ages, black cats became associated with Satan, witches, and witchcraft; some people went so far as to believe that black cats were cohorts to witches or even witches who had taken on another form.

Aren’t these Cats adorable?!?!

Pentacles/Coins

The cats in this deck feature cat tags! It began as coins. It became pentacles when the tarot gained its magical associations so some decks call it pentacles. This deck calls it Coins. I wanted to keep the original tarot symbolism and I wanted to keep this deck simple and purposeful with each element!

Wands of this deck
Wands of this deck

Wands

When I think Wands, I immediately think of feathers. Cats love to play with feather wands, and it makes sense because wands are the suit of action!  Feather wands are every kittens favorite! The feather, for example, is a powerful symbol that signifies honor and a connection between the owner, the Creator, and the bird from which the feather came. It symbolizes trust, honor, strength, wisdom, power, and freedom. It is an object that is deeply revered and a sign of high honor. Wands are the Tarot suit that corresponds to Clubs in an ordinary pack of cards. … Wands represent growth and inspiration, ambition, competition, and the desire for power; they often relate to business endeavors, but can also relate to endeavors in love and romance.

Cups of this Deck
Cups of this Deck

Cups

Cups are associated with water and what is more Water related then fishes. Kitties love fishes.. Cups reflect the water to show our subconscious thoughts and how they are controlled by your emotions. Cups Tarot cards indicate that you are thinking with your heart rather than your head, and thus reflect your spontaneous responses and your habitual reactions to situations. Cups are also linked to creativity, romanticism, fantasy and imagination. The cups in this deck have mason jars for cups. These hipster kitties also keep finding water imagery and each kitty has a yummy fish.

Swords of this Deck
Swords of this Deck

Swords

Swords are often double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups) to have the most positive effect. The Suit of Swords is associated with the element of Air. Air is intangible and unseen, but also in constant movement. Air can be still and mostly unnoticed, to becoming a breeze or a fierce wind. It is powerful yet refreshing and cleansing. Symbolically, the air element relates to knowledge, action, power, and change. It is a masculine energy that can lead by force and power, even though it remains unseen.  In this deck I have made the swords into knitting needles!! According to zoologists, the reason for a cat’s strong affinity for yarn seems to be rooted in its natural hunting instincts. … Experts have also theorized that the movement that yarn has when rolling, dangling, or unwinding reminds cats of snakes, which would be one of their top competitors for prey in the wild.

I have created Painted Tarot, Cats in Space Tarot and Love Thy Self Oracle Deck. It follows that my next project should be BLACK CAT TAROT.

Songs, affirmations and Self Love

Recently I created the Love Thy Self Oracle Deck.

I think music is so healing. For me personally. It helps me push past my comfort zones on a hard run, it helps me move my hips when I am dancing to a good beat and it helps me clear emotions when I sing. I have always been so drawn to music and find so much pride in people coming up to me after a Pilates class and them telling me how much the like my playlist. I wanted to create a bomb playlist to help you love yourself a little bit more. So lets go on a journey of self love through music….

  • Music overall has a positive effect on stress reduction in both physiological arousal and especially psychological response. In terms of time frame, music has an immediate beneficial effect on these outcomes.
  • Music experienced as pleasant increases the intensity of emotional valence (feelings of happiness), which likely has a stress-reducing effect.
  • In addition, listening to music can provide ‘distraction’ from stress-increasing thoughts or aversive emotional states.
  • Music with a slow, steady rhythm may provide stress reduction by altering inherent body rhythms such as heart rate. In addition, larger effects are found listening to music with a tempo of 60–80 beats per minute (BPM), which characterizes music that progresses in a slow and soothing pace.
  • Positive outcomes are observed when individuals select their own music, and when researchers pre-select music for research participants. However, because music appreciation and enjoyment is highly subjective, maximal benefits are often observed when individuals select their own relaxing music. Positive effects are typically observed when individuals listen to slow and steady songs, or relaxing classical music. More info here

I included with each card a song, and created a self love playlist. Here is a list of every card in the Love Thy Self Deck along with the music video. These are all just songs I like, feel free to follow me on Spotify and comment below if you have a better song.

To Spreads to connect with yourself, and your deck during troubling times

Connect with yourself on a deeper level by pulling a tarot card!

Tarot is a magical tool that connects you to your subconscious ancient knowledge. 

Here are my top spreads for when I am wanting to connect with my deck!

  1. One card Pull – pull a card and think about yourself in that card. 
  2. Two Card Pull – Have the cards Have a conversation
  3. Three card pull – Past, present,  future – Where was I yesterday, where am I today, where will I be tomorrow?
  4. Four Card pull – dive deeper into your concerns

Examples:

One Card Pull

Think about what your intuition is telling you about the answer before you even pull your card

When you’re working with a solo card, you have the ability to really delve into what it’s message could be. And again, grant yourself the kindness to be honest about what it could mean. Like I didn’t super love pulling The Hermit for 10 months straight after a break-up, but I honor what it’s telling me, and I’m committed to what it’s saying.

Get this Cats in Space Deck on my Etsy HERE

For my one card pull I pulled the Page of Pentacles! When the Page of Pentacles appears in a Tarot reading, you are tapping into your ability to manifest a personal goal or dream and may be in the midst of a new project such as a hobby, business venture, or the start of a new educational experience. You are excited about the possibilities and potential of what you put your mind to, knowing you can create whatever you want with focused intention and action. Hell Yes, I am feeling this today. I am feeling so inspired to share my gifts and my talents with the world!

Two Card Pull

Then see what you’re being invited to understand about the situation that you may not be consciously aware of. The Two-Card Cross handy in moments when you feel stuck and you don’t know why, or you want to get to the heart of an issue, or you want advice for your next step forwards. It’s also a lovely ‘overview’ spread, for those times you want a wee snapshot of where you’re at – and because it’s so small, it folds perfectly into a daily tarot ritual.

The two cards I pulled are: Six of Cups and The Hierophant! 

The Six of Cups often shows an increased level of harmony and cooperation in your relationships. You are ready to give and receive, without expectation. You are also willing to give each other the benefit of the doubt, having moved on from the challenging emotions of the Five of Cups. It’s time to turn over a new leaf and start afresh from a more positive place.

The Hierophant Tarot card often speaks to group membership or being part of an institution. You may enjoy a deep sense of comfort being surrounded by people who have well-established belief systems and explicit values. Finding them may be as significant as exploring a new church or religious group, or as simple as joining a gym or online Tarot community. This card is about identifying with others and a way of thinking that will prompt further learning.

Three Card Pull

  • Past, Present, Future
  • You, Your Path, Your Potential
  • You, Relationship, Partner
  • Situation, Action, Outcome
  • Idea, Process, Aspiration

3. Card for Solution
4. Card for Future

Cards I pulled 11/15/21-

  1. Seven of Pentacles
  2. Eight of Swords
  3. Queen of Wands
  4. Ten of Pentacles

My interpretation: The Seven of Pentacles shows you understand the value of putting in time and energy now for longer-term rewards and have a strong desire to invest in sustainable results. I have been in a habit of looking for quick wins. You also want to make sure you are putting your attention on the right areas instead of wasting time and effort on tasks that will not deliver any value. This is something I struggle with. I want to do everything for everyone and then I end up empty and nothing left for myself.  When this card appears in a Tarot reading, see it as an invitation to step back from the day-to-day operations and look at the bigger picture. Celebrate what you have created and assess your progress so far. Are you on track? Are you focused on the right tasks for your goal? I have really taken the last two weeks to focus in on my business and make it my priority. It’s good to have my focusing card about goals because for me that where I feel like I should be focused.

I am not going to lie when I drew the Eight of Swords cards I felt a little nervous. The Eight of Swords reveals that you feel trapped and restricted by your circumstances. You believe your options are limited with no clear path out. You might be in an unfulfilling job, an abusive relationship, a significant amount of debt or a situation way out of alignment with your inner being. You are now trapped between a rock and a hard place, with no resolution available. However, take note that the woman in the card is not entirely imprisoned by the eight swords around her, and if she wanted to escape, she could. She merely needs to remove the blindfold and free herself from the self-imposed bindings that hold her back. This card is exactly how I have been feeling. Rather than focusing on the gratitude in my life, I have been focusing on what I don’t have. It’s crazy. I have so much and I am so fortunate, The challenge of the card her is to reframe how you see it. The Eight of Swords reversed suggests that limiting self-beliefs plague you, preventing you from moving forward. You may tell yourself that you do not deserve to be wealthy, preventing yourself from receiving financial abundance even if it’s offered to you. Or you might conclude you are too old to lose weight, leaving you unhappy with your body and your health. The beliefs you hold about yourself are preventing you from achieving your personal goals. In light of this, change your belief system. Catch yourself when you are in a negative thought pattern and break the cycle. I have the power to break my negative cycle.

The solution card I drew was Queen of wands. (which is literally one of my favorite cards! Shes got a back cat AND sunflowers? I love her! The Queen of Wands reminds you that you are upbeat, courageous, and determined. You are here to see through your creative visions and life purpose, even in the face of adversity and challenge. Highly self-actualised and self-aware, you know how to best channel your strengths and weaknesses to achieve your goals. You are optimistic and full of ideas to share with others. You know what you want and how to get it, and are masterful at engaging with others to achieve your goals. Stay fiercely determined and focused on your goals while being friendly and optimistic with those around you. The Queen of Wands asks you to be bold in your undertakings and actions. Don’t be afraid to own your real power and put it out into the world. You have so much to offer – so shine your light bright! Believe in yourself and what you stand for, and don’t be afraid to speak up and be heard. No one will silence you. This is such a great solution card. I need to believe in myself.

The ten of pentacles is a reassuring future card. The Ten of Pentacles is a positive sign that you have reached a point of completion and accomplishment in your journey. As a Pentacles card, this sense of accomplishment is likely to be the result of a successful career path, smart financial investments, a stable home environment and a possible committed and long-term relationship. You have accumulated wealth and abundance through your hard work and dedication and can now relish sharing this wealth with others. This is one of those cards that promise everything will eventually come together and you will be proud of everything you achieved.

Honestly this tarot reading really did smoosh my anxiety. Tarot has always been for me such a comforting place. Usually it reminds me what I need to know and calls me out on my inconsistent pattern. What cards did you draw? If you would like a tarot reading I charge $5 for a one card pull and $10 for a 3 card pull. Email readings only at this point and I will send you a voice memo response! Larger more complex questions are $25. Send me an email popwiththea@gmail.com

Love Thy Self Oracle Deck

Another successful Kickstarter!!

I am so happy I am crying. My Kickstarter was funded! I feel so full of love. It’s crazy to me how far I have come. Literally. I have had so many people along the way tell me I couldn’t do it. Those little nay-sayers are never as loud as the one in my head, let me tell you!

The Love Thy Self Oracle Deck was a huge project, but it taught me so much. It taught me to believe in my ideas. It taught me the power of manifestation.

If you missed the kickstarter, get the deck here

There are 50 cards.

The guide includes with each card:

  • AffirmationSay this out loud to yourself in a mirror. Collect these Affirmations or try writing your own. These are meant to inspire you!

Love Thyself Oracle Deck

Updated: May 5

I decided to make an oracle deck! To be honest I never really liked oracle decks, and that because I felt like I was still learning tarot and they were something NEW to learn that didn’t feel like I could broadly apply them. And I know if you find the right Oracle deck it can work wonders but anyway I sorta steered clear of creating an oracle deck just because of this. But I decided to create my own and it has been amazing.

First of all this isn’t an oracle deck that is like a tarot deck. The whole idea behind this deck is simply this: who has time to read a self help book? Like ok, yes we all have read self help books and they can be really beneficial, however we usually just put it back on the shelf after and two weeks later we might start to forget the things in it. So I created this oracle deck that takes concepts and Ideas that you might read in a self help book and put them into actionable cards. We cant read a self help book in one day but we can draw a card and help push ourselves forward. So that’s the idea behind this deck!

Each card is itself a self help book. Condensed down with beautiful images to inspire and motivate you to be your best self!

What is this?

This is not a tarot deck. This is not a catchy gimmick. These cards harness the power of thousands of years of “self help” condensed down into habit changing pattern development. These concepts can help you no matter where you are in your self love journey. Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been working at this for years, this deck is designed to help you break your patterns of doubt. It will also help you foster and create love for yourself in a more organic and real way.

The goal of this Guide and Deck is to retrain your brain, reprogram your negative self talk, and create healthier mental habits. This guidebook presents ideas from Transurfing, so be prepared to alter your reality and create a reality where you thrive. You have the power to take control of your own life and your own destiny right now. These cards are not going to tell you to just be more positive or to just be more grateful; they are going to help guide you to find gratitude and positivity.

Why Self Love?

Have you bought those self help books? Have you read all the things about how you just need to love yourself and everything will be fine? Self-help books are excellent sources of knowledge but they often don’t provide life-changing solutions. They disseminate information from scientific journals and elitist institutions to the general public, which makes them great tools of self-empowerment. When we read these books, we start to connect to our sense of agency—our own personal ability to make a real difference in our lives—but once we have to take what we learned and apply it to our actual day-to-day, that part is harder.

It feels like self-help books don’t work. They can’t work if they exist in a vacuum. You must be the one who takes responsibility for your current state and implement changes in your own life. You need to decide how the concepts you read about will work given your circumstances and surroundings. A book can change your perspective, but you must change your own life. This deck hopes to help you do that. Since it’s not something you read one time and you are done, it is a tool you can use daily, weekly, even monthly to keep your mind on track. Self love is a journey, not a destination, and you won’t just be done one day.

Why do we need Self Love?

We are exhausted. Who isn’t overwhelmed with the news, the politics the general meh of it all. Mentally, physically, emotionally, & spiritually, we are saturated in our problems, consumed by our limitations, and sulking in our own suffering. It’s not just you. While it seems everyone is screaming “SELF CARE” from the roof tops. We are still not taking care of ourselves. Any moment you can decide to wake up from the dream and break the shackles that hold you in a state of complacency. You have the power to change your state of mind. Though it will take time and practice and you will make mistakes, you can change your thoughts and once your thoughts are truly changed you will start to see your reality shift. Your thoughts have real power and they constantly shape your reality. The first step to changing your life is changing how you think.

ABOUT THIS DECK

The Deck is 3.5″X5.75″ (89×146mm) in a custom tuck box! The cards are full color with a Gold Gilt Edge! It features 50 cards illustrated digitally by Artist Thea Muehlenweg. Each Deck comes with a lengthy guidebook detailing each card. The Cards are numbered so they are easy to find in the guide, and each deck has an affirmation on the card so you don’t necessarily have to have the guidebook on you to feel the magic of the cards.

This deck is for everyone, whether you’re really into tarot or not at all. This deck is for EVERYONE. The cards themselves feature beautiful women just like you! I have tried to include every shape size and color, to show the diverse beauty of women everywhere, but I don’t want it to feel token it’s not. Each card was carefully chosen. I wanted the cards to feel a little mystical and fantasy like.

Find my Love Thyself Oracle Deck here: ON KICKSTARTER

Why these cards?

Each card was carefully chosen. When initially setting out to create this deck, there were over 200 cards! That was way too many. After much research and painstaking thought and inquiry I finalized only 50 cards. These cards were hand selected, now each card is a little deeper than just an image and description. I wanted you to be able sit with each deep meaning behind each card. I wanted to create lots of ways for these cards messages to reach you. Each card has multiple things for you to connect with the ideas deeper. Each card has a little homework. Now this homework may be as simple as adding a morning ritual or as complicated as re organizing your home. But this homework isn’t a chore and all of this is designed to help you. If you don’t think an assignment is helpful feel free to skip it or come back later. Use whichever part of this deck that resonates with you. It’s a tool to help you on your journey.

Happy Scorpio Time!

♏ Scorpius (Scorpion): October 24–November 21

Scorpius, (Latin: “Scorpion”) also called Scorpio, in astronomy, zodiacal constellation lying in the southern sky between Libra and Sagittarius, at about 16 hours 30 minutes right ascension and 30° south declination. Its brightest starAntares (Alpha Scorpii), the 15th brightest star in the sky, has a magnitude of 1.1. Its name comes from the Greek for “rival of Ares” (i.e., rival of the planet Mars) and was probably given because of the star’s red colour and brightness. The brightest X-ray source in the sky, Scorpius X-1, is found in this constellation.

In astrology, Scorpius (or Scorpio) is the eighth sign of the zodiac, considered as governing the period from about October 24 to about November 21. Its representation as a scorpion is related to the Greek legend of the scorpion that stung Orion to death (said to be why Orion sets as Scorpius rises in the sky). Another Greek myth relates that a scorpion caused the horses of the Sun to bolt when they were being driven for a day by the inexperienced youth Phaeton.

Everyone born between approximately Oct. 23 and Nov. 22 is a Scorpio, which imbues them with a powerful intuition, razor-sharp focus, and strong sense of loyalty. But watch out for that poisonous stinger, because the cosmic scorpion is also known for being jealous, moody, and vindictive. These mystical water signs possess many enviable qualities, but getting to know some of Scorpio zodiac signs’ biggest weaknesses helps us to understand their habits and motives on a deeper level.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. Because of its incredible passion and power, Scorpio is often mistaken for a fire sign. In fact, Scorpio is a water sign that derives its strength from the psychic, emotional realm. Like fellow water signs, Cancer and Pisces, Scorpio is extremely clairvoyant and intuitive.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet that governs both destruction and transformation. On a good day, Scorpion energy is ambitious and enticing. On a bad day, however, the shadowy side of Scorpio is fueled by a relentless desire for control. Power-hungry Scorpios must remember that if controlled by their egos, they are at risk of poisoning themselves. This sign is at its best when that intrinsic intensity is applied to deep, soulful connections with friends and lovers. When they build trust with others, Scorpios demonstrate unparalleled empathy, depth, and commitment that brighten even the darkest parts of Scorpio’s magical psyche.

Scorpios are the natural rulers of the eighth house of the zodiac, which relates to matters of intimacy and shared resources — and this influence may explain why Scorpios tend to be so possessive over the things, people, and situations in their lives. Being vulnerable is hard for Scorpios, so once they feel invested in and attached to something, it can trigger their fear of loss and bring out controlling behaviors.

Cats In Space Tarot

GET THIS DECK HERE

Cats in Space Tarot is a unique Tarot deck featuring 78 cards!!!

You can use Tarot cards however they suit you. Because Tarot is simply a tool, and as with all kinds of tools, how you use it is completely up to you. Tarot is perfect for self-development, making choices, manifesting goals, coaching others, planning a business, writing a book, meditating—you name it. Tarot is the storybook of our life, the mirror to our soul, and the key to our inner wisdom. The most powerful way to read the Tarot is to use the cards to access your intuition and your inner wisdom. You are already so powerful. You are already much wiser than you give yourself credit for! The imagery in the cards give you instant access to your subconscious mind and your intuition. And from this place of inner power and wisdom, you can discover how to make positive changes now so you can manifest your goals and your dreams in the future. 

My name is Thea. I have always loved the night sky. I grew up just outside of Albuquerque far enough from the “Big City” to see most of the night sky, including the Milky Way. I got into tarot when I was a really young. I was instantly drawn to the pictures and colors. Growing up admiring painters like Vincent Van Gogh and Leonardo Da Vinci. I wanted to paint cards like the ones my mom had. And I did! I created the Painted Tarot, currently available on Etsy! But after successfully completing that kickstarter, I realized that I wanted something a little big more in depth in terms of Astrology and Astronomy. So I created the Cats in Space Tarot Deck! It features pictures from Nasa to inspire wonder and the cutest cats!

This Tarot Deck features the traditional card layout in any Rider Waite deck! It features all 78 cards. The suits are Mars ( wands ), Neptune ( cups ), Earth ( pentacles ), and Mercury ( Swords ). It comes with a detailed guidebook. Please send me your Email. Currently the Guidebook is digital. Those who backed the kickstarter will receive a hardcopy of the guidebook. The physical guidebook should be available in 2 weeks!

In this deck the suits are represented as planets. I chose these planets based on their elements but also based on the photos and knowledge that NASA has, so I chose close planets. There may be more suited planets in this universe but we don’t have great photos or knowledge yet about all the cosmos. So I picked things close to home. Easy way to read the cards is when you draw a suit card think of it in terms of the following:

• NEPTUNE Cups (element = water): Emotions, creativity, intuition, relationships

• EARTH Pentacles (element = earth): Material wealth, money, career, manifestation

• MERCURY Swords (element = air): Communication, truth, intellect, thoughts

• MARS Wands (element = fire): Inspiration, energy, enthusiasm

I wanted to create a Tarot deck using two things I love. Who doesn’t love Cats? Who isn’t fascinated by Space?? After months of study and lots of cat drawings, I decided to use real cat pictures and REAL NASA photos for this tarot deck. There are other cat decks out there. But none like this one. This deck sets you off to take a journey through space. Each card pictures real photos from NASA with information on real space phenomena. All my sources are cited but the main source all comes back to NASA.gov There is a plethora of FREE fascinating knowledge available for you. I hope with this will deck to inspire you to look to the stars in wonder. I also hope you saw “AWE” a lot because these cats are so stinkin’ cute!

Astronomy is the oldest science and some important insights about the universe were gained even before the invention of the telescope.

Astronomy is slightly different than a lab science like biology or chemistry because we can only observe space. We can go and get lab samples from a bunch of different planets and test the compounds in a lab. We have to use our technology abilities to study what we can see. We also have to apotheosis alot of what we want to test in Astronomy because it’s not testable. While Einstein can pontificate about notions, and years later we had the technology to prove some of his thought experiments. It is different than studying Chemistry because there isn’t the component of always being able to test things in the lab.

It’s harder for Astronomers to know if their assertions are 100% true. But over time with more data and more observations we can use comparable data to make sure we are completely sure. We know the earth is bigger than the moon, therefor we know the moon is smaller than the sun. That is a silly example but we can extrapolate more important things by making comparisons and putting more data together. Our technology has greatly improved, we can measure different types of waves, not just light waves to determine chemical composition of planets, which is really awesome. We can study waves and look at things really far away, things we can easily travel to and learn things about those places, and shine a brighter light, so to say, into the universe.

Ancient cultures built some impressive structures that incorporated astronomical functions and information. We have been looking at the sky since forever. The best example for me is Chaco Canyon, since that here in New Mexico. While some people could believe such structures were built by Aliens, a basic look into the history of the people that lived here would show you these people were much more capable despite lacking current technology, does not mean they weren’t intelligent or intuitive to the environment. without light pollution, the night sky is absolutely amazing. Of course watching the sky you start to find patterns. Chaco Canyon was a major settlement for 300 years while the Anasazi Chacoan villages reigned. Chaco specifically housed a lot of people most based on a single walled enclosure with hundreds of inter-linked rooms known as a great house, but it seems evident this was also a major location for vast trade networks, with a network of roads and outlying settlements that extended 100 miles to the south, west and north all the way to Aztec ruins to Farmington. I think it’s a disservice to the ingenuity and creativity of the human mind to assume aliens created these structures.

If you are new to kickstarter, here is a breakdown of the timeline! Except to get your deck in December, and your card won’t be charged till the final day of the campaign.
Boo is featured quite a bit in this deck. and I am not sorry. She is my cat. I adopted her from Animal Humane 5 years ago, we think she is 10. She doesn’t think I feed her enough. She would like more pets and wants to know if she can sit on your lap. She purrs quite loud and has a lot to say about her food dish.

Cats in Space Tarot was born out of an idea I had about making Tarot more accessible and cuter. Tarot can be so serious and intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be! Tarot can be a ton of fun! I was trying to think what could make Tarot Cuter (obviously Cats) but what is also a unique spin on Tarot? I myself own several Moon Oracle decks but nothing like this deck exists! If you are new to tarot this is a great beginners deck! If you are a Tarot master this is the perfect deck for your collection! Also it’s really stinking cute!

just a sneak peak at this adorable Deck!
This Tarot Deck is unique and fun. It is also adorable!!!

About this Deck

Each Deck has 78 cards. 22 Major Arcana and four suits with one thru 10 and Prince, Princess, Queen and King. Also Wands, Pentacles, Swords and Cups have been replaced with Mars, Earth, Mercury and Neptune. I have also Replaced Pages and Knights in this deck with Princess and Prince. The guidebook explains all this in further detail.

Mercury! Air signs are known for being more detached and cerebral than others. Air signs aren’t overly emotional, which gives them the ability to think logically and to achieve a broad overview of their idea. Air signs also require extensive freedom of movement in order to express their ideas and individuality. You can never contain an Air sign!
Pictures of these cards just don’t do justice!
Neptune! Cups are the suit of water–after all, water goes in a cup–and is a suit that often indicates emotion and feelings, as well as our relationships with others.
Can these cards get any cuter?
Earth! Pentacles , which some decks call Coins or Discs, are associated with matters of security, stability and wealth. It’s often thought of as the money suit. Meaning, this is the suit of money, work, luck and material objects in our lives. Earth is the perfect representation of this because these cards are all about being rooted in the realities of your environment and about building something durable, on a sound foundation
I love Boo. She is so cute!
Wands in this deck are represented as MARS! Wands Tarot cards deal with the spiritual level of consciousness and mirror what is important to you at the core of your being. The Suit of Wands is associated with the element of Fire. Fire is hot, wild, unpredictable, and energetic. It can be creative in helping us to cook food or build tools, or it can be destructive, like a devastating bush fire or house fire.
Each cat is so cute! I want to cuddle all of them.

This Deck also includes a lot of fun things about astronomy and divination. Each  update i will include more information about the fun connections between space, astronomy, astrology and tarot!

More About this Project

I will be posting more photos of each of the backers rewards as the project unfolds! Specifically the Hoodie! The prototypes came out amazing! I also have lots of different stickers planned and will be sharing those as they come in. Prototypes have been ordered and I am so excited!

Mock up of the Hoodie!

Once I reach my goal I will be able to order the decks and send them your way. The cost of printing the decks is so high that as a small business I cannot afford it but with your help I can! By paying me upfront with this kickstarter I am able to purchase the decks in bulk so I can afford to sell them to you at a lower price! Unfortunately the deck printing time takes about 1 to 2 months. And things may be delayed further by Covid. But I hope to get them to you by the very latest before Christmas! There should not be any delays in my timeline as long as you fill out the backer survey so I can get your hoodie size!!

 The Decks are all finished and ready to order! All artwork is finished and we just need the capital to start printing! The prototype is amazing as you can see from the photos! Each Card is unique and adorable! I am so excited for this project, it excites me every time i look at it!

 I am also printing a detailed guidebook. Creating this deck, I learned SO much about space and want to share everything . The Guidebook turned out way longer than I originally thought it would be, it is an in depth guide to not only learning tarot but also learning about space! Each deck will come with a printed guide! The guidebook is going through one more round of editing before being sent to printers. I wasn’t happy with the original prototype so I am going in a different direction, You will also get the guidebook as a Digital Copy with the purchase of a deck! But once the new prototype comes in, I will share pictures and videos!

Please contact me if you have any questions!

About the Creator

Who am i? I am Thea! I am founder of Black Cat Consulting LLC. I am an Artist, a Personal Trainer, and a full time Nerd. I love learning. I love a challenge and I love TAROT! I have successfully funded Painted Tarot on Kickstarter, and have that deck currently available for purchase on Etsy. My hope is to be able to cover the high printing costs with this Kickstarter and have Cats in Space also available for sale after this kickstarter. However, My main focus is selling Cats in Space here on Kickstarter so this might be the only way to get this Fun Unique Deck. If it is offered on Etsy it will be offered at a much higher price. So get it now!

Here is Thea, ME, the artist of this deck with my cat Boo!

I hope you will consider backing my project. I appreciate you taking the time to read this, Have a Puuurfect Day! <3 🙂

Here is Boo again. I know she is the cutest. She is on like 15 of the cards in this deck. She doesn’t seem super interested but she does want to know if she can sit in your lap.

Risks and challenges

The hoodies are a big risk on this deck. Just because they are a huge cost investment that I haven’t been able to reduce. I have had to increase the price to ensure they are produced. I apologize for the higher price.

I love tarot cards! I always have since I was a kid. I find them so interesting! Recently I designed my own tarot deck! It was a huge undertaking. I learned so much more about the cards then I ever thought I would. Do you know how long Tarot cards have been around? Since before ancient Egypt! And the poker card deck you think of s playing cards originated from Tarot!

SONY DSC

Tarot can feel super intense and intimating but it doesn’t have to. Break it down one card at a time! and separate it out. There is Major Arcana the 22 cards you would recognize and then the Minor Arcana which is 4 suits of cards.

Here are the Major Arcana from my Painted Tarot Deck!

This Painted Tarot Deck is a whimsical take on traditional Tarot created in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This custom painted deck of Tarot cards is perfect for any reader, collector, lover of art, tarot and all things magical! All card designs are individually painted and crafted by Thea Muehlenweg; printed on an smooth card stock.

First launched and successfully funded on Kickstarter.

It was such a humbling experience designing a tarot deck. If youre thinking about creating a tarot deck yourself, I have one peice of advice for you…. DO IT! You will learn tarot in such a deeper way. and yes there are a lot of tarot decks out there. I know, but the more tarot the better in my opinion. I personal own over 50 decks, that Ive gotten from other artists.

Here is the Oracle Deck I created. Oracle Decks are different than traditional decks because they don’t follow any specific format.

Designing a Tarot Deck

CREATE MORE. Make a ton of versions and design and choose a style you love and create continuity between all the cards. Find the FEELING you are going for.

I made lots of paintings before narrowing down what my concept was. I wanted to show off my art style but I also wasn’t completely sure what my art style was yet. I had put down art for a long time before doing this project. While I always adored art, I never thought I was very good at it. What I found doing this project is that art is practice. And it doesnt matter if you are good. Looking back on this deck I hate several of the cards. I want to change them, maybe redo them but I have had people tell me those are their favorite cards. I also had people tell me they don’t like certain cards in the deck that I absolulty adore! That’s the thing with art tho you never know what people will like. But you wont know until you start creating, so just create!

You will Make Mistakes

Seriously, I made so many mistakes! But that is a part of the process and I feel so fortunate for every thing I have learned. I talked about this on my friends podcast

I wasn’t happy with some of the initial paintings when I scanned them on the computer so I enhanced them with photoshop. I was sort of new to using photoshop prior to this project. and what a way to learn softwear!

Make your own deck

Be original, show off your style, and tell your story.

It can seem like a huge project. and it really was. The hardest part was starting.

Get Inspired by my Story

Painted Tarot is the first deck I designed. I was in a bad car accident in June 2019 that turned my world upside down. Apart from almost dying, losing my group fitness teaching positions, I realized life was short and all those times I said I was gonna do things, I either needed to do them or stop saying them. I had been talking about designing a tarot deck for almost 20 years. I thought i wasn’t “good enough” to read tarot. I had purchased several indie decks off Kickstarter and realized that I could design my own deck if I could have help purchasing the initial printing. Since the initial printing costs were around 7,000 I had assumed this was an unachievable dream. But with some hope and faith instilled in Kickstarter I began painting and researching and painting. I went thru several drafts with some of the cards and really struggled with.

Painted Tarot Deck

Hello! My name is Thea and I am the creator of The Painted Tarot Deck. I have been interested in Tarot and in art since I was in grade school and always had the dream of designing my own deck. This year I was in a traumatic car accident and it made me realize how fleeting life is and how important it is to follow your dreams. With this new spirit I created the Painted Tarot Deck. Each card was hand painted with acrylic paint and enhanced using Photoshop. Each Card I created myself. Each card is itself a work of art. I am really excited to share with you the magic of this deck.

The Deck

The 22 Major Arcana Cards are each a magical representation of what these powerful cards represent. Special care was taken to ensure that these cards don’t hold the *toxic white masculinity* of the original Waite deck, more genders and races are depicted throughout this deck. I wanted it to feel more powerful and real using real people as influence.

  • The Suit of Coins represents career, material possessions or finances.
  • The Suit of Wands represents energy, action and inspiration.
  • The Suit of Swords represents logic, words and thoughts.
  • The Suit of Cups represents emotions, intuition and feelings.

This Tarot Deck is unique! There is nothing like it! It is inspired from horoscope, crystals, Astrology, Palmistry, Tealeaves, Reiki, Akashic Records, Numerology, Runes, and more. There is a lot of positivism and optimism in these cards.

This deck is completely created and ready for printing! Initial batches are exquisite and beautiful. The purpose of this kick starter is to fund the printing of the Painted Tarot in larger quantities!

This custom painted deck of Tarot cards is perfect for any reader, collector, lover of art, tarot and all things magical!
