Update on Initiates Way Tarot and other adventures….

The images are coming thick and fast for the new Deck. Coincidentally finished the image for the Chariot just before travelling to France for the Summer.

IMG_9137As usual there have been lots of things happening during the stay. I have been editing the Tarot workbook and have finally finished writing all of the guided Meditations for each of the Major Arcana and have begun recording them for publication as an Audio series that will be suitable for solo development work or for groups.

The biggest thing that has happened since arriving in France was my Ordination as a Priestess in the Fellowship of Isis.  Just before I embark upon creating the image for Strength / Fortitude I had a vision of the Lioness who radiated the most amazing healing power that I was in complete awe.

Even though it is still August I have been inspired to paint the Ace of Cups Also. It was my intention to paint the Cups Court Cards on my return but they have also begun to emerge. In between writing and painting the new images for the deck I created my gift of dedication to the Goddess Athena. I have not painted with watercolours before so it was a completely new medium to work in and has given me inspiration to try lots of different styles!

There have been intense healing moments, connections with the Fae in the Forest and precious moments of baby deer skipping across my path. Magical moments that will be treasured forever and imbued into the journey of the creation of the Initiates Way Tarot.

Humbled and honoured to be alive at this time and filled with inspiration for the future.

Spring and the Sword Creations!

IMG_0119

Since the first stirrings of Spring I have been immersed in painting the Court images for the new Initiates Way Tarot paintings. The first image that I painted just before the Court images appeared was the Ace of Swords, or the root source of the powers of Air. It has been an interesting journey since the turn of the tides at the Spring Equinox this year!

More focus, orgnanization, cutting away the doubt and invoking the imagination into action after the long winter.

The first of the Court images to manifest was the King of Swords who is the benevolent kingly ruler that you see in the image below.

IMG_0133Each of the personality types has a completely different feel and this one definitely radiates peace and the ability to wield power efficiently, for the benefit of others and from a place of love.

The second of the Courtly Sword Persona’s to manifest was the Queen of Swords. Very different from the peaceful aura of the King. She is stern, yet keenly perceptive looking at you with a gaze that pierces right through to your very essence.

Next to appear after that was the Princess of Swords.

The princess radiates calm and serenity.

All of the Sword Court images have been finished with rustic golden eyes, painted on with metallic acrylic and the gentlest touch of the fingertip!

Each image started out as a little bit of gouache paint applied to the canvas and some water and I used my fingertips to manipulate the water and paint into a ghost image of each character with the paint and water. Once I saw the lines of the face I started to paint from there adding colour and depth until the character sprung to life!

The last of the Sword Characters is still underway but the Prince of Swords has most definitely taken form and as this season closes and the next begins, after completing the Lovers image I will move on to the Initiates Way version of the Chariot!

If you are interested in learning to use the Tarot for Spiritual Development please get in touch as I will be running some Monthly workshops/development groups in Sept / Oct this year using the 22 Major Arcana Guided Meditations that I have written.

Post – Judgement Phase

The creation of the Judgement image for the forthcoming Initiates Way Tarot started with a vision of a pair of wrought iron gates with a blood red sky of dawn behind it. According to conversations with friends on social networks it appears that there were  several massive spikes in the schuman resonance and it peaked well above its normal average of  7.83 Hz. On that particular day I barely noticed time passing as I painted and wrote notes for the chapter on the Judgement Image in the Major Arcana.  Could these fluctuations in the Earth’s electromagnetic field account for this surge in creativity? Possibly.

IMG_9823

In the last deck of Tarot Cards that I painted the Judgement image was re-interpreted as a “Gathering” and portrayed a calling to a different path by way of a choice of entrances or openings, or entry into a particular way of being and consideration of life so far and evaluating everything and choosing to either ascend to a different level of consciousness, or stay in a world of purely physical considerations; or simply hearing a call to a higher purpose and therefore making drastic changes in life to allow that to happen.

IMAG0037

As it stands at the time of conception of the new Judgement image for the Initiates Way Tarot there have certainly been some major decisions and ones that are directly related to choosing a different path, ongoing commitment to the pursuit of knowledge and truth and carving out a definite ‘way’ for those who may travel in our wake in the distant future, new seekers to the path looking to find a foothold so they can begin their own journey.

The guided meditation to go with this Major Arcana is that final one that I have to write before I can begin recording them for a CD that will be published later in in the year. If you would like to know more about this please contact me via Email.

Initiates Way Tarot Paintings

Initiates Way Paintings at the Carnegie in Workington

On the 9th of April Sacred Circle held their second annual Health, Healing and Awareness day at the Carnegie Theatre in Workington. There was a fabulous turnout of exhibitors for the day who brought with them not only fantastic wares but added to a collective energy that shone like a beacon for the entire day.

This was the first time any of the Initiates Way Tarot paintings had left the safety of my Sanctuary and they are now re-installed back in their homes since. During the Inner Goddess workshop we visited the healing pool and Sacred Sanctuary of the High Priestess which was a joy to facilitate. The High Priestess and the Magician presided over the sacred space and everyone had a taste of the stillness and peace within their own Healing Sanctuary during the guided meditation.

There are only two more of the Guided Meditations for the Tarot that i’m currently writing, that of the Judgement / Aeon and the Universe / World, and upon their completion I will begin the editing and recording process for each of them with Meditation Music so that you can experience all of the Archetypes for yourself. This will be available as downloadable .mp3 format or as a full collection on CD as soon as they have gone through the production process. If you would like to be notified when this project is finished please get in touch and I will add you to the subscription list.

You can follow the progress of the Initiates Way on Instagram or the Esoteric Art Facebook page.

If you would like to join the Sacred Circle please visit our group on Facebook.

Using the Tarot for Meditation

The Soulscapes Tarot is a 78 Card Tarot Deck that can be used as a focal point during guided meditation as well as a tool for Divination so that you can read for yourself and others.

Each of the Major Arcana has a path working which I have written with the intent of introducing you to the Tarot Archetypes so that you can experience and work with them yourself. All 22 Pathworkings will be published along with a Tarot workbook that can be used with either the Soulscapes Tarot or the Initiates Way upon its completion, or any Tarot deck that you are connected to. If you would like to experience these guided meditations in Group Sessions please Contact me for dates and times when we will be holding open Circles to physically attend for these.

You can also join our Sacred Circle group on Facebook if you have any questions.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/sacredcircle/

To use the Soulscapes deck to read for others you will need to Pre-order a copy of the third edition from our webstore. I will be ordering another batch soon. Please email if you would like to be informed when the package of the Soulscapes Deck and Tarot Workbook is available to pre-order.

Initiates Way Tarot Paintings

Three months have passed in the blink of an eye and much of it has been spent creating, painting, writing and gathering together my research notes for the Tarot Workbook that will accompany the forthcoming Initiates Way Tarot deck. If I thought that the journey of creating the Soulscapes Tarot brought with it major change and learning, it has transpired that the second time around of creating imagery for Tarot Major Trumps has brought with it immense wisdom, guidance and life learning for me personally and spiritually for which I am eternally grateful to have received .

Art of Temperance from the Initiates Way Tarot

The creation of the Major Arcana paintings for “Art – Temperance” “Pan-Hermes-Devil”, “Ivory Tower – Tower of destruction”, “The Star Sothis”, “Sun”, “Moon” and the “Goddess of the Grove – Empress” has been an enlightening, sometimes frightening, awakening journey all of its own and a huge learning curve in terms of my current understanding of the Tarot and its uses. The images for the Initiates Way have arisen of their own accord from the depths of imagination like bubbles popping to the surface from the bottom of a deep lake.

Even the method of painting has been so different from image to image. I started out using fingertips to dab and smudge block colour straight on to the canvas to paint the Wands / Staffs Court images and then to have gone on to watering the oil paint down with Olive oil and painting in layers on the Pan – Hermes – Devil, and incorporating metallic acrylic and indelible markers to define symbols. There is definitely something primal about the imagery that speaks to the subconscious rather than to the analytical mind.

I will be taking some of the new Initiates Way paintings to show at the upcoming events at Morton Manor in Carlisle on the 2nd April and our Health Healing and Awareness Day in the Carnegie on the 9th April.  Each of these images comes with a meditation to awaken that particular Archetype that has been written for use in a group setting or for use in ones sacred space during meditation, these will be published soon in book format as well as audio. I’ll be running workshops at the events using the High Priestess path working for anyone who wants to come and join in and learn how to use the Tarot for Meditation.

High Priestess from the Initiates Way Tarot by JadeM

Tarot is so much more than just just a tool for divination. It is your entrance point into another realm entirely, a journey within your very being and it is there waiting for you to set out upon its grand adventure.
