Cotd – Confidence is Key

The Cotd for Friday, October 3, 2014 is from the Tarot of the Night by Richard ShadowFox – 2013, Schiffer Publishing Ltd.

King of Wands Tarot of the NightKing of Wands:  Do not expect to find this person sitting quietly by in any topic of discussion.  What they feel, they must share, and they are often intelligent and knowledgeable enough to have a valid opinion on any subject.  They thoroughly enjoy a debate and will play devil’s advocate to put them selves in a situation.

Cotd – Making Time

The Cotd for Thursday, October 2, 2014 is from the Tarot of the Night by Richard ShadowFox – 2013, Schiffer Publishing Ltd.
