I'm writing this today to compare some different versions of the 9 of Pentacles, which was my card of the week for last week. This will not be an exhaustive study of every 9 of Pentacles card in existence, or even every one of them in my collection, just a sample of some that interested … Continue reading Cross-deck comparisons: Notes on the 9 of Pentacles, especially regarding the nature of “wealth” and what is asked of those to whom much is given.
Hello again! The new moon was yesterday, and today I did a quick Tarot reading using the spread that @the.word.witch posted on Instagram with the intentions: "For clearing your vision of self. For acceptance of disparate parts. For reflecting self-worth." Sounds good! A friend of mine called this spread "confronting," and I have to admit … Continue reading New Moon in Gemini reading…how do I see myself and what can I do about that? Looks like it’s about writing more, worrying less, and generally feeling like the boss of me.
Hello again! I have recently accumulated a dozen new “followers,” but I suspect there is some mistake because they ALL have Outlook addresses...and that’s just weird. So for all I know NOBODY is reading this and my account has been hijacked by some bug in Outlook. In any case, I’ll continue rambling for a minute … Continue reading Updates and such
It has been a long time (relative to how long I've been doing this at all) since I posted anything here. I have been doing tons of Tarot work, but have been posting it all on my Instagram account without sharing it here. (Below is a collage of some recent posts to show you, in … Continue reading The longer I wait to write something, the harder it is to start. So here’s a mini blog post about mini-blogging.
Wow! I set out to write a post about simple techniques for combining Tarot and "oracle cards" -- something I love to do -- and suddenly I was imagining a treatise on the relationship between art and divination. (Okay, calling it a "treatise" is a stretch. Let's say I have a lot of ideas, but … Continue reading Mixing Tarot and other oracle cards – exploring the art of temporary divinatory collage (and a lot of other ideas presented somewhat haphazardly in one post because that’s what I have time for)
The 2017 International Tarot Day Deck, spearheaded by Janet Boyer, is under construction, and the individual cards can be previewed by going to this site. After much ironic agonizing over my choices every step of the way, here is the final design for my 7 of Cups: Here's the bio I gave them: Jennifer (@aceoftarot) … Continue reading It’s no illusion — my 7 of Cups is complete!
I have a problem with overcommitting myself, because I have more interests than time. I'm guessing you know what I mean, since folks interested in Tarot will quickly find any number of rabbit holes to burrow deeper into... So while I haven't gotten around to writing my whole "how I got into Tarot/chose this blog … Continue reading Synchronicities continue to keep me company. And, I’m Biddy Tarot certified!
LET'S START WITH "CERTIFIABLE." Not certified, just certifiable. 😉 The coursework is done and my paperwork has been submitted to Biddy Tarot, and now I'm just waiting for (hopefully) my official Biddy Tarot certification. Will I feel special? 🙂 Well, I do like to get a good grade from the teacher. haha. But seriously, I … Continue reading I’m certifiable! And busy. And being stalked by the 7 of Cups. (Oh, and International Tarot Day is July 8th! Google it!)
Well, there are many self-deprecating things I could say to explain why it's taken 3 weeks to post again, but let's set those aside in favor of a more supportive understanding of how life works, both externally and within the mind of someone who is fairly "in the moment" about most things. Shall we? Yes? Good! … Continue reading Update: why this second post was so long in the making, and why the third will be, too. But not AS long, so please stay tuned!
