Almost exactly a year ago I pulled The Destroyer from the Wild Unknown tarot deck. Yesterday it was time to pull another card. My life has taken some shifts this year, and I wanted to see from what angle I should examine it all.
This time I pulled another really important card: The Mother.
I love the art on this card: nest, rope/snake, cupping hand, egg, pearl. WOW!
The Mother is represented in traditional tarot by The Empress card, but in this tarot deck, The Mother is more akin to the Mother archetype. Perhaps even The Earth Mother archetype.
Positive aspects: Feminine energy and power. Benign. One’s inner mother. Of the earth. Abundance. Creation. Sustenance.
But one’s inner mother develops when a child is developing. Is your inner mother nurturing and supportive or critical and judgmental?
Why did I draw this card at this time in my life? That is what I will be exploring over the holidays. I do know that seeing this card gives me peace.
If you live in the U.S., may you have a peaceful Thanksgiving! Otherwise, make it a special (peaceful) week anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving, Luanne! Wishing you lots to be grateful for.
Thanks, Amy. You too! I hope you get to see your family for Thanksgiving and if not, then soon.
Thank you for your Thanksgiving wish of peace, Luanne. I hope yours is peaceful as well.
Thank you so much, Liz. xo
You’re welcome, Luanne.
I have never dabbled in taro cards. Hope it’s a good sign. Have a great holiday.
The Mother is one of the identity cards, just like The Destroyer. I hope it’s a good sign because the Destroyer should have been good, but then all those kitties died . . . . Happy Thanksgiving!
Wishing you and your family a peaceful Thanksgiving, Luanne.
Thank you, Jill. I wish the same for you. Sending hugs.
A beautiful Tarot card, Louann, and equally lovely thoughts.
Enjoy the upcoming week and Holiday!
Thank you, Elaine. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
Wishing you the best of the Earth Mother’s energy!
Thank you! I am eager to explore exactly why this card has come into my life right now, although I suspect part of it at least!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Luanne!
Thank you, Merril. The same to you and your family :)! xo
Luanne, this is a beautiful card and may it signal a special year ahead.
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by your loved ones. Hugs, Annika xx
Oh, I hope so! Thank you so much, Annika. Many hugs back atcha!
Wishing you the peace that passes understanding, Luanne.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and T and the whole family (furheads included) with hugs!
Happy Thanksgiving, Luanne.
Thank you, John. Back atcha for you and your family, including the pupperoos!
Happy Thanksgiving, Luanne. I’m up on the mountain to celebrate it and my son’s birthday. We do our cards often too. They help with getting focused. I didn’t pack mine for the trip and am sorry now.
I hope you have a wonderfully enjoyable time, Marlene! I wish you had your cards with you. I wonder if there is a way to do it online, although I admit that I love the hands-on visceral aspect.
The hands on is important but I do see the same effect sometime in other ways. Signs pop up everywhere to give us clues. My daughter brought hers but I, like she like to use our own.
Oops, Happy Thanksgiving, too!!!
Such a timely draw
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Luanne! May this be a season to celebrate and be in the energy of gratitude. <3
What a wonderful practice, and one I didn’t know you did. So very interesting. It makes me want to do something similar….
What a lovely card to draw, Luanne. <3
