It’s the 4th week of the year and the card of the week is the card of the week is the Queen of Pentacles, known in this deck as the Luminary of Bees. First off, we say goodbye to the Darkness of Light Tarot and Hello to our Winter 2018 deck, the Atomic Tarot. The Atomic Tarot is a strong break from the traditional cards usually featured on Magdalena Tarot but I’m a sucker for graphic art and illustration and these illustrations were so engaging and the new system the artists used to go along with the deck was enough to make me want to introduce it to the Magdalena Tarot community. The Queen of Pentacles is a matron and a businesswoman. She knows how to plant and harvest a garden. No task is too big or small for the Queen. The number of the week shows that this year we’ve gotten off to a good start with manifesting the future we want to live in. We’ve quickly built a firm foundation and we’re ready to build upward from here. This is a time ripe with the energy of potential so whatever is sprouting in your life, water it with love.
Mantra: You reap what you sow.
