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…

rainy full moon

It’s the last full moon of the decade, it’s rainy, and I have a night on my own. I lit some incense (yeah!), a moon magic candle (yeah!), and watered all of my houseplants, some of which are sadder than others (oops). I also decided to pull some cards — no particular spread in mind,…

the rws is mad at me

rainy day elemental spread

It’s the first real storm of 2019 this weekend, and I spent almost an hour out in it — my coat soaked through, my shoes squishy (and hopefully not ruined), my leather purse dark with rain. Once I finally got home, I dried off a bit and then pulled out my cards. Yesterday in class,…
