7 of Sea (Cups) from the Magical Dogs Tarot by Mickie and Dan Mueller

There are plenty of cat-themed tarot decks and while there have been a few dog-themed decks, we knew there was room for another, especially one based on the Rider Waite Smith tradition with fully scenic minors. Mickie is well-known for her art and her work in tarot. Her co-creator, Dan Mueller, works in veterinary health and knows lots about dogs.

One of my favorites is this Corgi from the 7 of Sea. Who doesn’t love a Corgi?

A pleasant walk through the garden has taken a surprising turn; a Welsh Corgi, a breed known as a faerie dog, has had his daydreams interrupted by a mysterious apparition. Perhaps he is more open to the supernatural realms than most dogs. A simple garden pool has sprouted seven lotus pads, each bearing a different mystical vision; frog, fae, dragonfly, lotus blossom, snake, bone, and crystal sphere, all glowing with a magical light.  Despite the allure, and the illusion of choice, all is not as it first seems, they are no more than a fantasy, but they may serve as inspiration for a true intention and real achievement.

Paws for Thought:

You’ve been dreaming of your golden opportunity, or several to be exact. Dreaming is fine, but it takes real work to forge those dreams into reality. Try to grasp a dream and it will fall to dust, be inspired by that same dream and do the work in the physical realm and you may just hold it in your hands someday. The choice is yours.

Sniffing out the Signs:Illusion, wishful thinking, daydreams, inspiration, pipe dreams, fantasy.

Reversal, When the Dog Rolls Over:

You’re breaking through the confusion now and you’re better able to discern reality from fantasy. Some goals are more achievable than others, and you may have been confused by too many choices. You have now made a decision and have something solid that you can focus on.

Sniffing out the Signs:Clarity returning, discernment, actuality, manifesting dreams.
