The Wild Unknown tarot deck review

A review of a deck that changed the tarot world, and the one that I learned on. Let me start by first saying that this specific deck has been out for a long time now. It is not new, and most people in the tarot world have at least heard of this deck, and many, […]

Card Comparison: 2 of Swords

This month has been a deep dive into the 2 of Swords, which can be a challenging card. It is a card of layers, of merging and morphing multiple energies into a streamline of conscious action that initiates a change.

I am always thinking of correlations between the tarot cards and the world, reducing and extrapolating the meaning of a card into a synergistic relationship with something else. This could be a poem, a quote, a movie character, a crystal, or an essential oil. I have recently started using a lot more oils in my […]

“There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.” ~ Samwise Gamgee   I missed last week due to the holiday festivities, and I hope that you all had a good holiday. Two weeks ago we were dealing with the 7 of Cups, and the plethora of choices that bled between […]

Card of the Week: Mother of Swords

  “We dream in neurons. Form lost in forms, a blizzard of data blinds our motors.” ~ The Six- Cornered Snowflake by John Frederick   She has made a few appearances the last couple of weeks. However, when I draw in the card for the week, I keep the first one that I choose. It […]

“Godless, our minds / did monster us, left us bobbing as in a swamp / until we sank.” ~ Leave a Message Mary Karr One of the harsh realities about this card, this energy, is the inevitable and profoundly simple aspect of loss. This is the human card that we all have to pull from […]
