Today’s card is the Five of Scepters from the Tarot of Vampyres by Ian Daniels. This card is all about the power of will, determination, struggle and defiance
Being truthful to yourself and getting real is often scary but, facing your fears and deepest doubts and worries can be life changing. They can teach you where you strength is hidden and possible leaking away. Imagine what you could do if you would challenge your fears and overcome them. So much energy could be directed to more positive aspects of your life: compassion, love, creativity etc.
Yesterday I’ve posted a picture on Instagram of this deck and expressed my belated enthusiasm for it. I have this deck in my collection for almost a year now and never could feel any connection with it, until now. Although I wanted to save it for October, last weekend I couldn’t resist the urge to pick it up and try to work with it again. Then, totally unexpected, both the cards and the guidebook really hit home with me. Simultaneously I hesitated to blog about my draws because I felt I was not familiar enough with the deck to give my two cents about the cards. And what if people thought it was the “wrong” season? What would my readers think about an older woman with an vampire deck? Is it perhaps too sensual for my blog?? So much insecurity welled from within. I recognized an old ugly inner kobold. He is called: “What would people think of me?” And then, looking at this card, suddenly I knew...This is what this deck all about: Feeling the fear and do it anyway.
