tarot spread for the new year

“What are your New Year’s Eve plans?” I got asked today in a store. “Oh, not much — hanging out at home, playing with my tarot cards.” It used to be that Halloween and New Year’s Eve were my two biggest nights for going out, dressing up, and spending a lot of time with a…

2019: closing the loop

Let’s face it — I’m not going to be able to do the rest of my side-by-sides for 2019, and it was probably never going to happen. (Oh well!) But what I can do is the reflection on the cards, and on 2019. Even pulling up this old picture reminds me that I’ve gone through…

jupiter in capricorn

Lately I’ve been feeling the urge to use my Wild Unknown deck; since I’ve been using my RWS “crutches” a bit in class and when I need clear answers, I haven’t been reaching for my more mysterious decks for readings. Yesterday, Jupiter went into Capricorn, which is actually my Jupiter return — back to where…

blast from the past

Back in early 2011, I had just started a new job the previous November; I had come from a tough situation where I was very unhappy, followed by six months of unemployment, and now I was just a few months in. As part of the sales support team, I was included in our annual sales…

side-by-side: queen of swords

March was a very busy month, so it’s fitting that the first side-by-side I’ve gotten to catch up with had to be March. My boyfriend and I made a swift decision to jump on a new lease so a lot of things had to go into action really quickly. (Quick editor’s note — I did…

side-by-side: three of wands

Me: Gosh, why am I having such a hard time reading non-RWS decks for other people? Also me, realizing on taking this picture: Three of my five decks are Marseilles-style decks. February’s card, based on my 2019 spread, is the Three of Wands. Three in a family, that’s a magic number. I will admit that…

side-by-side: the world

January’s just about wrapped up, so it’s time to look back at my January card from my¬†2019 twelve month spread — the World. In my day job, January is very much a month of tying up loose ends from the previous year; it’s very common for me to have to fix the autocorrect from 2019…

ending, beginning

It’s December 31, the end of the calendar year! It’s also the end of my first real year of studying tarot — which I started a little sluggishly in January 2018. I’m looking forward to going deeper in 2019 — and will have more to say about that tomorrow. Today at 11:11 am (woo!), I…
