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

    I love creating my own tarot spreads, and I've also always loved fairy tales. What a fantastic idea, and a plausible interpretati

    I think the poisoned comb, the poisoned apple...yes. Poison was the go to in later stories.

When the 2 of Cups reversed has absolutely nothing to do with a romantic squabble…

The other morning I was running around trying to get my stuff together for an event I was going to later on in the day. Before I got too crazed and before the day got away from me, I sat down with a purpose: doing my morning meditation, my morning pages, and my card of the day.

After my meditation and my morning pages and pulling the card of the day, but before writing out my interpretation of the card of the day, my bestie called to say about 15 minutes before picking me up for our plans that she wasn’t picking me up after all… and that I’d have to find my way to the event we were both attending myself.

It wasn’t about the driving myself… got no problems doing that. It was the last-minute cancellation/change of plans that drove me nuts.

After seething a bit and complaining to my husband, I sat down to write my interpretation of the card of the day. I sat down and took a look at what I had pulled.

The 2 of Cups. Reversed.

So that’s what the 2 of Cups reversed meant… not the lover’s quarrel I was fully expecting after pulling that card. Nope. Not at all. It was the fight with someone else that I love deeply… just not in THAT way.

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.

The "Selfish" Cards in Tarot

When I was trying to learn Tarot, one of the most frustrating aspects were cards that looked alike or seemed to convey the same type of energy.

Some similarities I struggled with included:

2016 Tarot Journal - A Minor Arcana Journey

The Minor Arcana of the Tarot is the least explored cards in the deck (including the Court Cards). Even in scholarly works such as Robert Place's The Tarot: History, Symbolism, and Divination, the Minor Arcana (Ace through Ten) and Court Cards (Pages, Knights, Queens and Kings) are lucky to get a few sentences dedicated to them.

For instance, take this brief entry on the Nine of Pentacles:
