21 Ways - Step One

Step 1: International Icon Tarot, 5 of Wands

This card shows 5 figures each with a wand, in some sort of conflict - it might be in fun, but it also might be serious. I think it is interesting that the figures are all in different colors.

On to Step 2!

21 ways - Step One

Sorry for boarding the bus so late...
I have a long holiday in front of me and want to do something useful. Chose the Arthurian because I'd like to reconnect with the story.

The Arthurian Tarot (Hallowquest) - IV Arthur

A man sits on a stone throne in a mountain landscape. He is wearing a golden circlet on his head, armour, and a purple cloak. A sword lies across his knees. A banner similar to a chinese kite floats behind him.

(I noticed for the first time how "unpopulated" the Arthurian actually is, I've never really used it before.)

Some are born to sweet delight, some are born to endless night...
~William Blake, Auguries of Innocence~

Screws fall out all the time. The world's an imperfect place.

21 Ways - Step One Fantastic Menagerie

Looks like there are a few of us just starting out so at least we will have company here at the tail end of the group. By the way Dave, thanks so much for organizing this study group. YAY for Dave! Love the variety of decks being used!!!

The Fantastic Menagerie - The Star

The card shows a woman with an ibis head (bird head) walking through some vegetation into a pool of water. She is adorned with nature, has a dragonfly on her shoulder, and there are 3 fish half-in half-out of the water watching her.

My chosen card is The Star.

CARD: The Star
DECK: Fantastic Meangerie
Card can be seen here:

Entity of the Water/West Corner

Not at all

It is most certainly not too late to join. Although you have the benefit of many examples to follow, I would encourage you to do your exercise mostly on your own. This is how we learn, we plunge in and do our own thing while trying to follow the guidance Mary Greer offers in her book. She has experience to guide her, and to also guide us. As I have gone through these steps I find that sooner or later the next step builds upon what we have learned earlier. Learning comes from doing. It has been very enlightening, so do join us. Even if the bulk of us reaches Step 21 before others have made it most of the way through, we will continue to monitor the progress of everyone.

We are only doing the Apprentice-level steps at this point. I expect that we will be doing the the Adept-level steps after the summer ends. Dave

If you have options, exercise them all.

Step One: Universal Goddess - 5 wands

This card shows Pele, Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightning, dance, volcanoes and violence.
She's doing some sort of ritual dance in front of a volcano
