International Tarot Day and the 5 of Cups

July 8, 2018 is the second International Tarot Day. To celebrate, many Tarot bloggers are writing about a card, chosen by the creator of this celebration. I was assigned the 5 of Cups.

A Tarot Dinner Party

Imagine you are giving a Tarot dinner party and you can only invite 6 Tarot people (Taroists) – living or dead. Who would you want to be there… and why? That was the interesting thought question asked today by an administrator of a Facebook Tarot group, of which I am a member. It sure got me to thinking. There are so many great Tarot artists, historians, teachers, authors, deck creators… how in the world could I narrow it down to only .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!

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 .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... 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 .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

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 .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... 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 .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... 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 .fb_iframe_widget span{width:460px !important;} .fb_iframe_widget iframe {margin: 0 !important;} .fb_edge_comment_widget { display: none !important; } .... continue reading
