What the Devil Am I Going to Chant?

Back at the start of the year, Carla suggested looking at the numerology of each month to examine its energies, and in February she picked a chant to match.  I joined in, as I love chanting.  In April, Carla wasn’t sure she was going to carry on, and didn’t post about it til 9th April.  Continue reading »

What Structure To Put In Place?

After last week’s reading and its advice to get more structured, I carried on about my life.  I was hoping that a clear structure would coalesce with my intention.  However, by Thursday I had to concede that it wasn’t just going to happen by itself.

Warning: Googly-Eyed Creature Alert!

Sometimes people complain about ‘cute animal decks’, or any kind of themed deck.  However, themed does not necessarily equal superficial or unreadable.  For example, the Tarot of the Magical Forest (Lo Scarabeo, 2008) has plenty of depth, symbolism and interest, and is very readable. On the down side, it is one of Lo Scarabeo’s old-style Continue reading »

The Tarot of Vampyres Overview

Having pre-ordered the Tarot of Vampyres (Llewelyn, 2010) when it first came out, it quickly became my favorite ‘dark’ deck.  And though there are some others I like, it is still my favorite vampire deck. The suits have been renamed, giving us Scepters (Wands), Grails (Cups), Knives (Swords) and Skulls (Pentacles).  As for the card Continue reading »
