Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh Go Léir,
A big Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all my Tarot Friends around the world. It’s a day when the whole world turns green. Irish people all over the world celebrate their Irishness on this day. It brings us all together as one big family regardless of how far we are away from each other. Today, every city, town and village around this island will take part in parades and gatherings. There will be much Irish music, Irish dancing and plenty of Guinness and whiskey too.
I thought I would share a little bit our National Day with you. It’s a day for everything Irish and for having a good laugh.
River Dance at The Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin, Ireland today. Jean Butler with the long Auburn hair leads the troop of dancers. Jean was the original female lead dancer of Riverdance when it first burst onto the stage as the interval act at The Eurovision Song Contest back in 1994. She toured with the show for many years. Great to see her performing for Patrick’s Day. Still looking good Jean.

Match The Court Card Queens to their Personas on TV
Below are six TV Leading Ladies. I have picked them for their very definite personalities. I have also supplied a list of corresponding Queens from the Court Cards for you to match with these highly talented women as they portray their on screen characters. My answers are at the very end, but are not conclusive. They are purely my interpretation and you may find different combinations. However, try not be tempted to look at the answers too soon. Have a good shot at it first. I have worked with their most dominant personas but do give mention to their weakest or absent ones too. Enjoy!

Hello to all my Tarot Friends,
Below you will find some Mini Tarot Horoscopes for the week ahead. As Tarot Students you will wonder how and why I chose certain interpretations out of the myriad of versions available for each Card. It would be impossible to detail absolutely every associated meaning, so as I drew the Cards I simply went with the first thoughts that came to my mind. Each Mini Horoscope below could be rewritten several times over to provide alternative interpretations, but we would be here all week. The Mini Horoscopes are a great way to test your skills and ability with Snap Shot Readings. This comes in particularly useful when doing Readings for Groups of people when there is no time to go into great depth. When a Card is drawn, look for the first thread that presents itself to your eye and mind. Then run with it and work a story around it.
Why not try this exercise yourself and compile Weekly or Monthly Mini Tarot Horoscopes for your friends and family.

Pisces(Feb 20-Mar 20) – The Five of Wands
It’s just going to be one of those weeks. Nothing will seem to go to plan and the world may seem against you. Expect the unexpected and keep calm. Everyone seems to be tetchy right now so try not to take it personally. Emotionally you will feel all over the place and it will be difficult to settle or find peace anywhere.

Hi to Everyone out in Tarot World,
Well, here we are eventually. The In-depth Personality Profile and Card Imagery Description for The Knight of Pentacles is now ready for viewing and can be found right here. Below is a brief extract.
The re-worked Divinatory Meanings both Upright and Reversed are not yet complete and will follow in due course. However, I think I have left you enough to be getting on with. Hope you enjoy meeting the Final Knight, The Knight of Pentacles and trust you will identify many a friend or family member who matches his profile.
This final Knight completes the spectrum of Personalities found in this Rank.
So that is me signing off for today. I was determined to get this out before bedtime, and with aching arms I have achieved my goal.

Personality Profile, Card Imagery and Description
The Knight of Pentacles is of The Earth Element, but just like his fellow Knights, is also influenced by Fire. Thus we have a combination of the Elemental Energies of Earth and Fire within him. We find a predominant Knight of Pentacles with a dash of The Knight of Wands.
Earth influenced by Fire
Knights represent the Fiery Part of the Court Cards regardless of their Suit Element. Therefore The Knight of Pentacles represents the Fiery part of Earth. In The Knight of Pentacles we have Fire influencing Earth; actions influencing material or financial concerns. What this means is that this Knight is results oriented. The Knight of Pentacles does not indulge, or participate in senseless action. He does not waste his time on ridiculous or frivolous pursuits. He approaches his time as he does the rest of his resources. He must utilise them to their maximum potential and advantage.
Earth can get extremely heavy and bogged down if left to its own devices. Earth is constant and generally solid and reliable. We lay down foundations on Earth and develop roots that can last a lifetime and beyond. Sometimes these roots can pull on us too much, making it difficult to move as it draws us further down into its grasp. Earth holds us all together and gives us the yardstick by which we measure our tangible achievements, success and possessions. However, as essential as Earth is to us all, it can have extremes of effects on us.
With Earth as our stabilising foundation, we can all just about manage to build a roof over our heads, and forage in the wild for just enough to sustain us and clothe us. We can live off the land and be quite content with our lot. On the other hand, we can use the Earth to provide us with so much more. We can build great houses instead of hovels, farm the land so that it yields bountiful harvests to sustain us without worry of starvation, and properly use its natural resources to craft quality clothing to suit our environment. The difference between the two is Fire. Earth is there for any of us to utilise so that we may exist, but when we add Fire to the mix, great things can be achieved.
