TarotBlogHop: Imbolc 2017 Ace in the Hole

PREVIOUS | MASTER | NEXT

Welcome to the first of the 2017 Tarot Blog Hops. This is our seventh Imbolc hop. We began in 2012 with the question, "How can I be a better candle?" This hop was begun as a way to highlight the online Tarot community's commitment to working together rather than against one another. I'm so very proud that we are still doing this! Every six weeks, any where from 10-30 of us gather to share our thoughts on one topic. We love new bloggers too so please come join us. We are a Facebook-based group that maintains a very tight focus on the topic.

I'm the wrangler for this particular hop. The topic is "How can I best foster the energy of the Aces in my life?"

    Ah yes, the darned mosquito! Crepuscular is a lovely word. Thank you so much for sharing that.
Mirror, Mirror: Reflecting Yourself

Due to a long-standing love, I began a project writing Tarot spreads based on fairy tales. That love also led me to a project with Lisa Hunt that is being published by U.S. Games this summer (2016). That is a Lenormand deck. I'm coming to an appreciation and understanding of Lenormand because of that and due to a class I took from the World Lenormand Association

SPREAD: Life's Path

b2ap3_thumbnail_DevianMoon_10Swords.jpgAs a professional Tarot conversationalist (I prefer that to reader), I hear a wide variety of questions. One of the ones I hear more often that not is a variation on "where am I supposed to be going." Often I am asked “What does life have in store for me?” or “What am I supposed to be doing with my life?” or “I feel stuck right now. Am I on the right path?”

These are questions many of us have even if we don’t ask them outloud. We wonder where we are going and if we really are supposed to get there. I think it’s a combination of societal/family pressures and our own need for assurance. In thinking about this particular area of questioning, I decided I needed a spread more dedicated to offering creative solutions.

Top 10 Reasons To Design Your Own Spread

b2ap3_thumbnail_Spread_BlindSpot_7252013.jpg

Someone asked me why I like using my own spreads or spreads others have created. They pointed out that the Celtic Cross has been around for a long time so why didn't I just use that? We had a very good discussion that ended with him sticking with his beloved Celtic Cross but understanding why I enjoyed creating spreads. That led me to come up with a series of answers to that question.

The graphic above is from my second post here on SageWoman blog. It is from my spread Revealing The Blind Spot.

In no particular order, here are my top ten reasons you should design your own spread.

One of my great loves is to create spreads for Tarot. This one can be used with any oracle deck. I think it would be fun to try it with Lisa Hunt's gorgeous Winged Enchantment Oracle. I created this spread about nine years ago while living in Colorado.

How Zentangle Made Me A Better Psychic

There's this ugly little thought in the pagan community. It's an insidious thing--this thought. It says that if you can't still your mind, you can't work magic. It has a bit of shame connected to it. Like pieces of tissue with bits of the brown stuff stuck to your shoe, it flutters about just waiting for someone more knowing, more "silent of mind" to notice.

As you may have guessed I have really struggled with meditation. My walk on the path of the Craft began in the early 80's. My teacher did guided meditations. My mind did what I like to think of as solo explorations of the story possibilities of those guided meditations.
