Nice to meet you.

I’m Louise and this is where I share my creative work. Thanks for looking.

Tarot for the week ahead, 21.11.21

It feels like a lot of people are struggling recently. Much-reduced daylight hours, a lingering pandemic and 18-plus months of uncertainty have created some deep undercurrents of change and questioning. This reading seems like a reflection on how those things are affecting us all. We have, this week, to contend with the mental and emotional […]

Tarot for the week ahead, 14.11.21

Ooh, a proper five-weeks-till-the-Winter-Solstice reading! The clocks have changed, the hours of darkness are already much longer and many of us may be feeling it now – the urge to cosy in, hibernate and rest. No wonder Endurance is at the centre here, keeping the fire going to retain heat and warmth. In the absence […]

Tarot for the week ahead, 7.11.21

This week is about finding balance, between people and within ourselves. The King of Swords is the master of rationality. Too much so, sometimes – he can be cold, ruthless even, when ill dignified. There are limitations to the value of judging all matters from a purely factual, intellectual standpoint. The Queen of Wands on […]

Tarot for the week ahead, 31.10.21

Well, what else would I read with on Halloween but the Dark Wood? This week is about the necessity of self-care (and care for others) to making progress, which carries through nicely from last week’s very introspective, emotional reading. Here is the Queen of Pentacles – sensual, embodied, representing the manifestation of all things physical […]

Tarot for the week ahead, 25.10.21

Ah, the Three of Swords, the card everyone loves to be afraid of. We’re not fond of difficult feelings, are we? But still they come, and if we are wise we’ll spend some time with them this week when they do. It feels like the thread linking these cards is evolution and rebirth. Judgement is […]

Tarot for the week ahead, 17.10.21

Is it acceptable to start a tarot reading with “oofff”…? Because wow, that’s quite a pull! We are squarely in relationship territory this week. You can see how the Devil and the Lovers are almost flipsides of each other. Where there is intimacy, trust and connection (mental or physical) there can too easily be a […]

Tarot for the week ahead, 10.10.21

Back from holiday to an interesting spread for the coming days! Let’s get the Tower out of the way first, shall we? This isn’t necessarily the cause for panic that people sometimes think it is. True, it usually signifies a bolt from the blue, a moment of external intervention beyond our control; but sometimes it […]

Tarot for the week ahead, 26.9.21

Ooh, this looks like quite a powerful week! This reading speaks strongly of insight. The Two of Wind – aka Swords – is a pause, a moment of calm and consideration before deciding what comes next. The Magus is our Will, our ability to move in the external world to make whatever it might be, […]
