Deck Collection Expansion!

Ever since I first discovered the joys of Tarot, I’ve experienced phases during which the urge to buy new decks has spiked through the roof for me. On the one hand, I do read and teach professionally at this point, so decks are legitimate tools of the trade…but on the other hand, I do need … More Deck Collection Expansion!

TAROT TIP: Explore Multiple Decks

I have a bit of a deck-collecting habit. I also have this one friend who feels the need to question this habit of mine. Now, to be clear, my overall deck-buying impulse flares up much less often and much less intensely than it did when I was first bitten by the Tarot bug. To large … More TAROT TIP: Explore Multiple Decks

Tarot: The High Priestess and Hypnagogia

I’ve posted before about how The High Priestess occupies liminal spaces: those transitional areas that are neither here nor there, but have elements of both. Liminal spaces include things like thresholds, corridors, bridges, and stairways. 🌓 Times can also be liminal. Think dusk and dawn. 🌓 Transformations also have liminal phases. When does a caterpillar … More Tarot: The High Priestess and Hypnagogia

TAROT TIP: The Aces

I feel like the Aces in Tarot are special in their own way, somewhat like the Court Cards are, but maybe even more so, because they’re like a sub-subset hiding within the larger subset of “Numbered Cards.” They’re essentially the 1’s of the deck, but they have a special name, and even in the otherwise … More TAROT TIP: The Aces

Four Court “ranks” across four Suits yields up 16 distinct personalities to understand and keep track of. That’s a pretty large cast of characters, and without handy “cosmic job descriptions” such as “The Empress” or “The Hermit” to help us … More TAROT TIP: Dealing with Court Cards

Tarot Tip: Work with The Empress to Invite Abundance

I had breakfast with The Empress this morning. Does anyone else in the deck say “abundance” to you quite as vigorously? Maybe the people in the happier 9’s and 10’s? Mostly, when I think about growth, fertility, and especially abundance…I think Empress. Therefore…TAROT TIP: if you want to encourage The Empress to hang out with … More Tarot Tip: Work with The Empress to Invite Abundance

My day was devoted to the first leg of one long-ass drive today. Day 2 tomorrow will see me tackling the back stretch of it.
