So when you are considering love and lovers and partnerships and relationships and worships and any ol’ kind of ship…keep in mind that the captain of your ship is a freak.
Today’s card is a reminder that sometimes love can be a freak show. And I’m okay with that. Are you? Even though I’m a romance writer (Marilu Mann), I know that not all heroes are buff-bodied, danger-seeking alphas. I know that not all heroines are lithe, leather-clad, pistol-toting hunters.
Often the hero and heroine both belong in some side show. Or so we think. It’s that attitude that can trip us up. We may struggle to tame our inner freak in order to love the wrong freak. Note: I think we are all freaks to someone. And that’s a good thing.
The first person we have to love in our personal freak show is ourselves. We are most likely the freakiest of the bunch to ourselves because know one knows us better than we do.
So when you are considering love and lovers and partnerships and relationships and worships and any ol’ kind of ship…keep in mind that the captain of your ship is a freak. Love that freak. And, as we say here in Austin, let your freak flag fly!

This Temperance shows the balance as Continue reading “Wings, Tigers & Bartending”
So what is your take on this deck? Love it? Hate it? Repelled or compelled? I love the unflinching look at our own gothic heritage. I hope others will buy this deck. I’d love to discuss it with you.
American Obscura Tarot
This is a perfect time to tell you all how much I admire well done self-promotion. It’s not easy to do without coming across like an attention seeker. You all can probably name those who do this ad nauseum. Read my book. Read my reviews. Read my blog. Look at me. Like a toddler shouting from the yard, “Watch me, mama. Watch me.” Continue reading “REVIEW: American Obscura Tarot”
