Creating a Tarot Spell

I have a friend who is applying for a promotion at work. If she gets it, she and her partner will be able to move to a new town, closer to family. My friend sees this potential as a great opportunity to get one step closer to her goals.

 I wanted to support her efforts with some tarot magick. I thought it would be helpful to share my process for this tarot spell, for two reasons.

Daily Tarot Exercises

So, remember a few weeks ago when I started using the Tarot to give me a hint on what my body might need from me in the upcoming day? That has actually proved to be quite an interesting exercise (if you will pardon the pun). Not only am I finding that the cards give me clues as to what to expect, but I've actually started to broaden this to different aspects of chores around the house. 

Is it crazy to 'predict' what to do? Well, yes. Tarot--like astrology or any other oracle--can give us insights, but it doesn't control us. However, I have found on days when I draw a high energy card, I do tend to get a lot more done in the house as far as mundane chores go, than if I drew something more relaxed.

The Evolution and Re-interpretation of Symbols (or, The Coffee Tarot Leaves Me Cold)

My artist husband, Ron, and I are creating another Tarot deck. As avid coffee drinkers (especially me) who enjoy the creative benefits of the caffeine rush, we decided to bring to fruition an idea whose time had come: The Coffee Tarot.

Within 12 hours of launching our Facebook page, we had over 100 fans. But not everyone was thrilled with a java deck…

    Coffee's not my beverage of choice, but I don't really see a Dr Pepper deck coming out any time soon. I am imaginative enough, ho

    Thank you, Paula! We have so many ideas, but it's really a time thing--especially since Ron has a full-time (non-artsy) job.

    For me, Tarot is the Budweiser of divination, in that it was what I first experienced, and since I didn't care for how it tasted,

Affirmative Magic

Hi, my name is Arwen and I do affirmations. 

It's true. It was sometime in the mid 80's that I became an Affirmation addict. At least I think that is when I first ran across this concept. My first real memory of learning about affirmations was in Marion Weinstein's fabulous little red book,

The Tarot Magick of Reversals

Not every tarot reader works with reversed cards. For those who do, there is a simple opportunity to add a bit of tarot magick to your divination work.

In both divination and magick, I like to think of card reversal as changing the energy of the card. The reversal may lessen the card’s energy, it may put the card’s energy in the past, or it may create healing from the energy of the card. A reversal may show a reluctance to accept the card’s energy, or that the cards energy is needed, but lacking.

Before I talk about tarot as a Jungian Neo-Pagan practice, I want to take a time out and share some of my favorite tarot decks with you.
