Full Moon Reading

Cards for a full-moon.  Past/Present/Future…what do the cards say on a rainy, gloomy day?  Remember where you came from. No matter how hard it gets, you are never alone.  In the future you can rise above petty emotions and delight in the abundance of your relationships.  I like this message.  Nice to have the coincidences…

Tree Tarot

        http://www.tarotoftrees.com/ I found this tarot deck quite accidentally (one might say– randomly…). while looking for something specific on Etsy.  I am attracted to this deck for some known and not so known reasons.  If you have someone on your gift list that is hard to buy for and likes items of…

Triptychs and Tarot Blogs

It’s been a while since I could hold my head up high (Staind)…and write a blog entry that doesn’t sound like a sappy apology for not writing regularly.  I am not going to waste precious space on that.  I am an infrequent blogger.  So be it.  I am large, I contain multitudes (Walt Whitman). Beginning…

Be Careful What you Ask

The other day I thought it would be cool to do a Tarot reading following a spread I saw through the Llewellyn site. It is called the Goddess Archetype spread. I thought it would be fun…there are nine cards in total and each one represents a type of female archetype: Mother, Virgin, Siren, Wise Woman,…

Sweet Dreams in the New Year

Happy New Year to everyone!  On to a smashing-good 2010! 🙂 Sometimes the best divination is simple.  Pulling one card from any kind of deck can be magical and/or medicinal.  It all depends on if you are the type of person, like me, who seeks symbolism in everything. After a NYE dream of thousands of…

Love this Site…

Here is a great site if you are interested in acquiring Tarot cards or other divination sets. Llewellyn Worldwide Something to think about for 2010! (and as we make our way to 2012 divination is sure to become more popular since humans seem to need symbolism in their life.  I am feeling a bit Jungian…

There are no accidents, part II

Today’s daily draw was part of a non-accident. In other words, I was planning to come home from work today and find a system that I use for divination and pick a card, or throw a rune and see what came up. But instead, I went to an after work appointment with my awesome yoga…

Celtic Random

I will spare you the details on the history of St. Patrick’s Day.  Though I am super tempted to do it. 😉 For tonight’s random magic, I will be pulling from a Celtic Tarot in honor of the holiday.  One thing I have to say about this deck is that it has always been a…

Daily Draw: Un-Tarot

There are systems that are card-based, but not Tarot.  Witness the many decks created by self-help authors like Louise Hay or Don Miguel Ruiz.  All decks are based on the idea of the “spread” or an order of cards that when put together can be interpreted to say something.  Most of the self-help and other…

Daily Draw– just missed that asteroid!

So I read on a blog I follow that earth just missed being hit by an asteroid that passed by 40,000 somethings away. Apparently, 1/8th of the distance to the moon. Eek. But that is just the kind of week we are having on earth…although I should probably only speak of my corner of the…
