The Tarot of the Traveller is a new project by Veeno. She has deepened her understanding of reading Tarot cards through many years. Regularly, she shares her insights into one card of a deck with traditional playing cards, as it was allegedly used by the Romani. In this process, she lets her creativity fly, using contemporary Mandala creations and stories. Be part of this wonderful process!

Today, we look at:

The Jack / Maid of Spades

As a person:

Youthful person, adventurous like a child


Optimistic, intuitive, confident, playful, spontaneous, cheerful

This card takes you to the park or the playground where children romp around freely according to their whims: here, there, sometimes jumping, sometimes running, sometimes singing, sometimes shouting… then again quietly dreamy baking cakes in the sandbox, always driven by their wonderful desire to be surprised and their tireless inclination to discover the unknown.

This thirst for adventure wants to sneak back into your everyday life. This childlike joy of sheer existence, this trusting openness, this spirit of young innocence can make the smallest tasks shine in new colors.

The spark “having fun” works wonders.
