What To Do With The Pig-Headed Emperor of Paperwork…

Another Tarot de Marseille this week, the ‘restored’ deck from Jodorowsky and Camoin (Dg-Exodif, 1997/2006). I’m working with an organisation and things have been slow going of late. So, I asked what I should know about the situation:   The Cards The Emperor is, of course, the perfect representative of organisational structure. He is seated Continue reading »

What Moonlight Shadow Dogs Me?

One of the things I love about the tarot community is that most people are enthusiastic to keep learning. I’ve been digging into the Tarot de Marseille system. Though it seems a little strange to call it a system, given that many writers have totally different takes on the cards. Makes me feel better about Continue reading »

Do You Haiku?

Haiku Reading Tarot Kaizen recently reminded me about writing haikus for tarot cards, something I used to do quite regularly.  With May’s focus on the Devil, I decided to let the Sasuraibito Tarot (Stasia Burrington, 2017) inspire me. He’s a rather handsome Devil, with a bad boy look sure to entice.  While sex addiction isn’t Continue reading »

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 »

When Is It Good To Be A Drama Queen?

After last week’s Moon challenges, I thought about doing a tarot spell to move me towards Sun energy: vitality, well-being, joy and dynamism.  However, I’ve been reading Tarot Kaizen by Alison Cross.  It’s a great little book,  which I’ll review more thoroughly on Friday.  In the meantime, I decided to use one of the spreads Continue reading »

What Challenges and Opportunities Am I Blessed With?

We moved house on Friday, into a house that’s not finished yet.  So, it’s a building site still, and there are four rooms we can’t really use.  That means we can’t unpack, and have boxes looming over us in the remaining rooms.  And yet, it’s home. I decided to ask about the challenges and opportunities Continue reading »

Maiden, Mother, Crone: What Advice Do You Bring?

Triple Goddess Tarot Mini Review When I saw Lo Scarabeo had released a Triple Goddess Tarot (2017), I went for it straight away.  Not everyone likes Lo Scarabeo decks, I know.  However, I like the card stock, which shuffles easily and fits well in my hands.  And now that they’ve bought into the borderless deck Continue reading »

What Dragons Shall I Ride This Week?

A new deck this week, at least new to this blog, the Starlight Dragon Tarot (Huszka & Engert, 2016).  It’s got beautiful, vibrant artwork in a detailed and yet minimalist style.  The cards are square, which makes for some interesting possibilities, like the diamond spread shown here.  The idea of the layout is to represent Continue reading »
