Kuan Yin and My Tarot Readings – The Pearl of Compassionate Wisdom

KUAN YIN and MY TAROT READINGS It is interesting how the things that are going to become important to us come into our lives. That was the case of this beautiful Kuan Yin statue for me. I was not raised in a religious background where I would have known about Kuan Yin, but every time I saw a depiction of her in art or statuary, I felt a strong connection. I never knew why until many years later, when I Continue reading

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 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 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 Continue reading

Tarot Card of the Day – King of Cups

  TAROT CARD OF THE DAY King of Cups I find this card to be an interesting modern take on a King. The image moves us from the middle ages concept of a king on a throne to a modern king of society.  We see a man in a business suit sitting within a circle (symbol of wholeness) that is supported by an upward pointing  triangle (symbol of stability and male energy). The triangle-circle chair sits on top of a churning sea (churning emotions). We see the Continue reading

The Starchild Tarot AKASHIC and Wild Kuan Yin Oracle – A Great Duo

The Starchild Tarot AKASHIC and Wild Kuan Yin Oracle are a great team together – who knew? As I have been working with my Starchild Tarot AKASHIC deck (artist and creator, Danielle Noel), I recently discovered that it works quite well with the Wild Kuan Yin Oracle (author Alana Fairchild). I really enjoy working with the Wild Kuan Yin Oracle. Its artwork is happy, charming and compelling. Sometimes the answers it provides are so right on it just makes me smile. I would never have Continue reading

My Bossy Starchild Tarot AKASHIC Deck

My Starchild Tarot AkASHIC deck was pretty bossy at our first reading. I had not expected that. This was something new from a Tarot deck. When I first saw the online images of The Starchild Tarot AKASHIC deck, I felt a strong pull toward them. They were different. They seemed powerful and deep. And when I was finally able to buy them, I could hardly wait for them to arrive. But when they did and I was looking through the deck, I had the sinking feeling I would not be Continue reading

When Fish Bones Were My Tarot Teacher – Gaian Tarot

Fish bones as a Tarot teacher? Yes indeed. Remember when as kids we were all told not to judge a book by its cover? I find it amusing that even though we think we have learned our childhood lessons, we can often get shown as adults that we need to recall them again. Fish bones on a 10 of Water (Cups) Tarot card  reminded me of this lesson. I like to think of myself as open to changing thought and circumstance. Sometimes I Continue reading

The Rohrig Tarot 8 of Pentacles – An Amazing Image

The Rohrig Tarot 8 of Pentacles is a compelling image. It draws you right in to its message. Numbers are interesting. They tell of phases within cycles. The energy of the 7 of Pentacles card is often depicted as someone resting for a bit, waiting on the fruits of their labor. At this stage, it can sometimes feel like we are not getting anywhere fast, that our efforts are not paying off as we had imagined. Patience is called for as we await our reward. As the 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 Continue reading
