Tarot In Nine Words – The Magician

Rider-Waite-Smith Magician

Well the next in this journey is the Magician. Traditional meanings are about manifesting power and controlling it as well as using the tools. Most cards show the Magician with four symbols to represent the suits of the Minor Arcana.

I love the Magician in the World Spirit Tarot because Continue reading “Tarot In Nine Words – The Magician”

Spread: Mirror, Mirror (The Fairy Tale Series)

I have launched a project for myself that I am calling the Fairy Tale Spreads. I have long had a fascination and appreciation for fairy tales.

First as a child, I dreamt of unicorns and dragons and witches and princesses thanks to these tales my mother read me. As I grew older, I revisited them from a feminist perspective and found them to be lacking. But now that I am older, I find myself back at the doorstep of the old storyteller again. And this time, Continue reading “Spread: Mirror, Mirror (The Fairy Tale Series)”

SPREAD: Finding The Warrior Within

I have been creating my own Tarot spreads for nearly seven years. I take a psychological approach to Tarot rather than a predictive one. I am far more interested in how things will make me feel and change me than I am in how things will turn out.

In our lives we take on battles nearly every day. Some are small battles while others are large ideological wars that take up a lot of our energy. That energy is a precious resource. I have found Continue reading “SPREAD: Finding The Warrior Within”

Tarot In Nine Words – The Fool

Something I do to release my creativity is write poetry. Writing fiction and writing poetry, for me, have a similar feel because I am trying to tell a story with both. Poetry is simply more obscure, if you will. On a board I frequent, I started a thread called 9Words: A Poetry Challenge. The premise is simple. Continue reading “Tarot In Nine Words – The Fool”

Peek Over Arwen’s Shoulder

My family has always accused me of being a magazine addict. It’s true. I love magazines for their articles because I can satisfy my need to read in a fast small bite. If I am reading a book, a good story will hook me so that I can’t put it down until the last chapter. That’s not so bad when you read as fast I read, but still… it’s nice to be able to read something that is not going to make me lose too much time.

I’ve whittled my addiction in print magazines down only to be lured by Continue reading “Peek Over Arwen’s Shoulder”

Let’s Talk About Queens

Let’s talk about Queens, shall we? One of the hardest cards for me in the Tarot are the Queens. I get that pages often equal messages. Knights are all about the journey. Kings are about completion. But what about those lovely lovely ladies of the Tarot? What is their role in my Tarot life?

As a woman, I often see Continue reading “Let’s Talk About Queens”

Tarot Tips: Memorization VS. Instinct

How do you memorize the cards? It’s a common question with a simple surface issue. However, if you dip below that surface, you will find a darkness lurking there in the waters. What are we really asking when we say, “How do I memorize the cards”? Is that truly the question or is the actual thought “How do I trust myself”?

I believe that it is Continue reading “Tarot Tips: Memorization VS. Instinct”

Other Blogs: Mary K Greer

I know, I know…. Why should I tout other tarotist blogs here? Well because I like to share great finds. To me an engaging blog is one that makes me come back to it time and time again. I’m not so much about controversy as I am finding other writers who love to talk about the tarot. One of these blogs is Mary K. Greer’s WordPress blog creatively titled “Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog”. Often referred to by just her initials in the Tarot world, MKG delivers in her blog.

If you read a blog for pedantic thought that just regurgitates old stale information, do not read MKG’s blog. Continue reading “Other Blogs: Mary K Greer”
