Tarot Myths: DEBUNKED

Some years ago I wrote a post about my top Tarot myths. I've been doing a lot more on YouTube recently including using that old post as a video topic. I wanted to share that here.

Pagan News Beagle: Watery Wednesday, September 2

Witches build a temple for Hathor in Wisconsin. A new Tarot deck celebrates icons of black history. And debate consumes the Pagan community over what it means to be a real polytheist. It's Watery Wednesday, our weekly segment on news about the Pagan community. All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

Top 10 Reasons To Design Your Own Spread


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.

Casting Love Spells: A Cautionary Tale

This post also appears at


Once upon a time, a young foolish teenager cast a spell.

She cast a spell at one of the many power sites in the world, where all the elements meet in one place. Air, water, fire, and earth ... where the land meets the ocean. She found a pure white stone, and asked the Gods to bring to her a true love. She was tired of waiting, so she sought out a way to bring him to her. She held the stone in her left hand, and cast the love spell in the way that she was taught to cast it: without envisioning a specific person and without being unduly specific, because magic follows the path of least resistance, and magic often does not work in ways that humans understand or can anticipate. She held the stone firmly, and when she felt ready, she threw the stone out into the ocean, into the crest of a huge wave, and determined that the waves of the oceans constantly coming into shore would eventually bring love into her life.

It took three years and many relationships and coincidences for him to arrive.

How did she know that he was the one she asked the sea to bring to her?

His name means "from the sea."


I wrote this little “fairy tale” story back in 2007, when I still was with the person in question whose name meant “from the sea.” Yes, that young foolish teenager that cast the love spell was me, and yes, the story above (though flowery in language) really happened. Why am I writing about it now? That spell taught me very valuable lessons in how spell-casting really works.

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.

Learn to use Psycards


I know that most pagans are familiar with Tarot cards.  I, too, started my divination practice with a deck of Tarot (classic Rider-Waite).  But many people never feel fully comfortable with Tarot, or find it difficult to learn in all its nuances.  I put my Tarot cards away forever when I discovered Psycards.
