LEPUS ● Cosmos Tarot & Oracle

LEPUS ● Cosmos Tarot & Oracle

I’m going through all 100 cards in the Cosmos Tarot & Oracle deck, one by one with my own interpretation based on my intuition and notes from the deck creators in the book. I’ve had this deck for quite a while and have yet to dive in, so I’m using this as a way to get to know the deck. From what I have learned and noticed is that it really has it’s own system, not quite like the Rider-Waite or other systems I have found. This deck is a collaboration of 100 different artists through Light Grey Art Lab, it features constellations, planetary, and all things surrounding the universe.

LEPUS (2 of Air) ● Cosmos Tarot & Oracle

Keywords: End of Naivety

Nothing is just as it seems, we have all fallen into the traps of hopeful fantasy. This card reminds me of children when they soon learn that there is no Santa Claus or that the Easter bunny is not real, tales that our parents tell us when we are very young. We fall into the lore and love of the stories, our imaginations are ripe and on fire. We are invisible and wear capes that protect us. We have no reason to believe otherwise because in our eyes, no one lies and everything is very black and white. It’s about coming to terms that what was is not necessarily true and it’s time to embrace it. It is the transition of growing up and being an adult to face reality.

The rabbit in this card is Lepus, from the story of Orion. Rabbits are known for their cunning speed, swiftness, and naivety. They don’t think anything can catch them, perhaps they think they are invisible just like children in superhero capes. This often ends bad for rabbits, they get cornered and out numbered in hunting and by prey. This card urges us to be quick on our feet but don’t fall into traps and be caught off guard. Be aware of your surrounding and don’t believe everything you see.

LUPUS (9 of Air) ● Cosmos Tarot & Oracle

Keywords: Secret Dealings – Rumors – Provocation

We all encounter trolls online, people in our lives that test us or challenge us, and those who just simply want to prove us wrong even when we are right. These people can make a big hiccup in our day that will drag on into the week and sometimes longer! Ignoring these encounters are often the best choice but sometimes we just need to confront them and call them out. Be the bigger person and put any rumors to rest, clear the air, and move on.

I’m drawn to the hand of the wolf in this card. It is a moment caught in transition, where a human is transformed into a wolf, almost like they are showing their true colors. If a person is just out for a thrill and wants to stir the pot for their own entertainment, it will be shown and they will be exposed.

PEGASUS (Wheel of Fortune) ● Cosmos Tarot & Oracle

Keywords: From Humble Beginnings to True Potential

Sometimes we are gifted with gratitude in the form of teaching, mentoring, and even just simple assistance. This is a card of giving back, extending your gratitude to another. If you have received some awesome free service, give back to someone else in return. This is much like “pay-it-forward” to me when I interpret this card. It doesn’t have to be in the form of money though, it can be in gestures and helping others. It reminds me of being taught something by someone for free and down the road I do the same for someone else who could use this help. This card is full of accepting the gratitude of others, giving gratitude, and passing it down.

SAGITTA + INDUS (6 of Fire) ● Cosmos Tarot & Oracle

Keywords: Damage Taken to Defend Another

Be the warrior, be that person who takes a stand and defends not only those you love but what you love. This card is about taking action to protect and shield what you hold as sacred. This can also be standing up for yourself in a conversation when you feel attacked verbally. We come into contact with others who push their beliefs and opinions on us way too often – standing in line at the store, at work in the office, or even just over the phone. This is your message to take a stand and defend yourself. The arrows in this card are straight and sharp, so should your conduct, don’t bend your actions or soften your tact. This doesn’t mean you should  start throwing sharp objects!! It also doesn’t mean to be hateful, it’s aimed at taking a stand towards a bully or someone/something that pushes themselves into your life negatively or is hurtful unwanted behavior. I can think of a few situations where I didn’t hold my ground and fight back, so I know this card also urges us to be courageous and use inner strength.

The person depicted in this card seems to be a Native American holding a flag and tomahawk as they face the arrows being shot at them. They have several arrows piercing their arm, yet they are still standing strong and facing those attacking. We may face getting injured or emotionally hurt while taking a stand at what threatens us, but this is a small sacrifice to take. You can’t always go into an argument and not expect to get verbally bruised. As silly as this is, this children’s rhyme comes to mind when looking at this card:

Sticks and stones may break my bones

but names will never hurt me.

A note on the cosmos associated with this card, Sagitta and Indus. Sagitta is the constellation of the arrow while Indus is normally associated as a proud man with arrows in both hands, depicted usually as a Native American. Both constellations are far away from each other but are related in symbolism here. I think they collaborate well in this card and have a powerful message.

Cygnus

CYGNUS (5 of Fire) ● Cosmos Tarot & Oracle

Keywords: Keeping Up Appearances – Tactical Finesse

It can be difficult to keep it together and look at ease, yet also try to put your foot down and lay down the rules. I think some of us do this well, while others crumble under the pressure. This card tells me to breath, to take a moment to collect myself before turning into the Tower and losing my shit. Being able to keep your cool in rocky situations is a challenge in itself but one that offers a lot of respect.

I’m really drawn to the fierceness of the swan. Normally you see a swan as graceful and delicate while it swims softly through the water, but this swan is out for blood. I feel it is protecting something, it’s like it was finally pushed over the edge… but the swan is being a bad ass! It is showing control and dominance, in yet a graceful tact. This is a swan you don’t want to mess with and would like on your side. I feel like it would take a lot for the swan to be pushed to this state so it must be over something dear to them, perhaps it’s cygnets (babies). 

This card is associated with the Cygnus constellation, which is known as the swan constellation. In Latin, Cygnus means “the swan”. This constellation is associated with the Greek mythology of Zeus and Leda, read more on this constellation here.

100 Cards of Cosmos

100 Cards of Cosmos

100-cards-of-1

Back in June I got my hands on the Cosmos Tarot & Oracle deck… for the second time after letting go my first copy, which I instantly regretted. I vowed that I would do a deep study with this deck… but ended up getting distracted (probably by another deck arrival) and never started up the study. This deck has been sitting comfortably on my shelf with my many other decks. I was recently inspired by Anna from Lady Lionheart Tarot who is doing a “#100DaysofCosmos” on her Instagram – as well as inspiration from Carrie Mallon and her The Wild Unknown card posts over on her blog (they are excellent)! I’ve been wanting to dive into this deck for months and I think this will be a fun way of doing it!

So, I’m planning on doing a daily draw with this deck on my Instagram and then talk about a few cards each week on the blog (will most likely double up on days or post a few days each week). I don’t want to cram all the cards in but I also don’t want these posts to drag out too long since I tend to lose interest quite easily and there are 100 cards total.

My goal with each blog post is to note the keywords associated with the card given from the book (they are also listed on all the cards), as well as my personal interpretation of each card using my intuition and the info given in the book. I will also try to note on the planetary or constellation associated with each card.

I started a page on the blog where I will list all the cards to this deck so you can find them quick and go right to the post I do. Since I’m going card by card, I will add the link to each card as I go. I’m pulling them at random so they won’t be in order.

I’m going to try to not put a lot of pressure on myself for these posts, but to make them more fun and relaxed. If I miss a week or two, no worries! If you have this deck and want to follow along, please do! Feel free to post your interpretations in the comments, I would love to hear from you guys!
