Samhain – All Hallows Eve – Halloween

As Halloween is approaching, it recently occurred to me that The Fool card of the soon-to-be-released Blood Moon Tarot is a wonderful depiction of the ancient Samhain (Samain) and  All Hallows Eve, from which our modern Halloween traditions have evolved. SAMHAIN  –  ALL HALLOWS EVE – HALLOWEEN There is credible evidence that it all began 4500+ years ago, back in the ancient mists of time. But we do know for certain that by around 2000 years ago, the Celts in ancient Ireland .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... continue reading

The Earth Element in Tarot – Pentacles – Pages – Major Arcana – with Tarot Grand Luxe

It is now autumn in the northern hemisphere and I have been thinking about the seasons and the elements. To me, autumn equates with the earth element and in the Tarot, the earth element is usually represented by the Pentacles (sometimes called coins). The Pages of each Tarot suit and five of the Major Arcana cards  also reflect the earth element energies. I have chosen to use the Tarot Grand Luxe deck by Ciro Marchetti for this post  because its rich and .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... continue reading

Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Magic Wands and Wizards Tarot

So what do Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Magic Wands have to do with Tarot? Quite a lot, as it turns out. This past Christmas, Santa gave my husband and me a trip with one of my daughters and her family  to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. All of us are big Harry Potter fans and it was so much fun to share the magic with my daughter, her husband and their three children. Thank you, Santa!

The Moon Tarot Card – Rider-Waite, The Fountain Tarot, Tarot de Paris

The Moon Tarot card is a difficult card for many people to understand, myself included. I learned to read Tarot with the Rider-Waite cards and for a long time I had only an intellectual understanding of the meaning of the Rider-Waite Moon card. The Moon Tarot card meanings seemed broad and vague. The image showed a crayfish emerging from a pond, heading toward a path that led off into the distance between two towers. There were two canines in the .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... continue reading

International Tarot Day – What Tarot Means To Me

Today is the first ever International Tarot Day. To honor the start of what I hope will be many more International Tarot Days to come, I thought I would write about what Tarot means to me. Tarot is such a useful tool on so many levels. One of my favorite uses for Tarot is for accessing wisdom and understanding through my inner, higher self that is aligned with Spirit. So as any normal Tarot reader would do, I drew a card to .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... continue reading

A Relationship Tarot Reading for Jeanne

Tarot readings can give us so much information about ourselves and the situations in our lives. They each have their own rhythm. Sometimes they reference an immediate situation and sometimes they take a while to come to pass. This relationship Tarot reading for Jeanne had elements of both. Much of what was indicated in the cards was taking place during the time of the reading and within a very short time afterwards. Some things took a little longer to come into sharper focus. Jeanne (not her real name) has .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... continue reading

I Become The Fool and Start a Tarot Blog

I have been thinking about starting a Tarot blog for a while but have always hesitated. Perhaps it was my own shyness or a fear of putting myself out there, but it seems the time has finally come for me to quit hesitating. It is time to become The Fool – to trust The Universe, step out off that cliff and see what happens. As I add my voice to the many other excellent Tarot blogs out there, what is it I feel I can .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... continue reading
