Tarot Tiles

The holidays are just around the corner, and while I was surfing I came across these wonderful Tarot Tile pendants made by Gaea (http://gaea.cc/gaea_tarot.html) I particularly liked the 'blue moon' in teal.

Being a potter myself, these have given me some inspiration, not so much for making the Tarot tile pendants, but for doing a line of Tarot inspired plaques and masks. The runes are talking to me fairly loudly at the moment, too. I feel some sculpting approaching...

Tarot Magick Basics

Your tarot deck is a fabulous tool for magick. Each card carries specific energy. You can use your cards as altar tools to invoke energies and entities. You can use your cards to offer protection, to quickly usher in change and to assist with healing.

You can use tarot as part of formal magick in ritual. You can also use tarot in casual magick by carrying an image with you or pinning an image to your wall.

When Bad Things Happen to Good People—A Pagan Perspective

I watch the news with my mother sometimes. For the record, probably not something I would recommend, especially when I have more leftist leanings and she is surprisingly conservative for how open-minded she is on certain topics. I digress. No matter how different our perspectives are, we usually end up saying the same thing after a particularly heart-wrenching news story about yet another murder or tragedy: “What is this world coming to?”

I was raised Episcopal, so I would assume that the whole idea of “God must have needed that person in Heaven, so He took he/she away from us here for a good purpose” filtered into me, by osmosis since I don’t remember anyone ever saying that to me directly. Since I never had to deal with personal tragedy, there was no reason for me to ever hear this statement, so I didn’t really think of it much until lately. Yet I keep saying that good ole phrase in the back of my head: “There must be a reason for this.” What if there isn’t?

    Ms. Parry, Thanks for sharing a tarot reader's perspective on divination and fate! The Pythia and the priests (when not corrupt)
Quick & Easy Tarot, by Lily Oak

 

     Recently I was given the opportunity to review Lily Oak's newest book, Quick & Easy Tarot, released by Hedge Witchery Books (http://www.hedge-witcherybooks.com), and I am so very grateful for the opportunity. I read tarot every day; I have even been known to carry my deck around in my purse for no other reason then to have it nearby. I am not a beginning reader by any means, but Lily Oak has included pieces of information in her book that were quite new and fascinating to me.

Tarot Magick for Travel

I’m back from my summer travels! We drove from Florida to Connecticut, where I was happy to give tarot readings to many friends both old and new.

The long trip in our Ford E250 Cargo Van got me thinking about tarot magick for travel. These days I do it without even really thinking about it. Gas? Check. Oil Change? Check. Magick? Check.

Are you grateful for what you have in life?  This months card is a reminder that while we strive for all of the luxuries that we want, we have to be grateful for what we already have.

Revealing The Blind Spot: A Tarot Spread

b2ap3_thumbnail_SunMoonJustice.jpgA lot of my work as a professional Tarot conversationalist involves helping others see their blocks. We all have them. Many of us spend a lot of time ignoring them then falling over them. One of the most useful things to do with Tarot can be digging into those blind spots. They say Justice is blind, but I don't think they meant this.

I've developed a spread to help find the blind spot. It asks five questions to investigate what we are blind to in ourselves. More importantly, the spread focuses on why and how to integrate it into our selves to become more whole. This spread is meant for those of us who want to
