Interview with my Deck: Casanova Tarot

I have a new deck, and I love it…. the Casanova Tarot. Not sure if I’ll be allowed to publish this photo on the blog, but I do hope so!!! I’m using the LWB as a starting point to get to know the deck, since these cards don’t really follow in the RWS tradition… 1)…

Life Lessons: Temperance

In another of those spectacular acts of synchronicity, this month’s card has been chosen for me.  Recently,  TABI (Tarot Association of the British Isles ) were approached by the Tarot Guild of Australia.  In a very flattering email, the editor of their new magazine, The Wizard, told us that their site has great content, and asked…

Life Lessons: King of Swords

When I started this series, it was intended to be a general card of the month.  But of course, when I shuffle the cards, I am putting all of my energy into them, and seem to be pulling cards for ME. Which is fine… but I wonder if somehow my entire life story is going…

Lighthearted Lookahead: July 2018

In General… July is a time of escape, and good times lay ahead as fresh hope and freedom calls as school draws to an end and the holiday season kicks into full swing. The 8 of Cups tells us to let go, leave the worries behind and move on… to look forwards as we travel…

Interview with My Deck: Thoth Tarot

I am using my husband’s Thoth Tarot, a deck I have only used once to date. I have been quite gobsmacked so far by the refreshing honesty of the deck.  Well, honesty is a bit soft a word there, although true.  This deck is harsh.  Truly sharp and to the point. You’ll see what I…

Review of The Casanova Tarot

Although not a newly released deck, this is one that I came across whilst trying to spice up my tarot life; to be honest I was googling erotic tarot decks. Now, don’t look at me like that. As the proud owner of maybe a dozen decks, my husband accuses me of being a collector. My…

Life Lessons: 4 of Cups

As this post publishes I am hopefully in a campervan on a three week trip, wading through fords in green valleys in The Emerald Land*, en-route to a retreat. A spiritual retreat, but run by monks and with a fair amount of bible bashing from what I understand. Whispering Tarot: 4 of Cups Now, it’s…

Review of The Medieval Cat Tarot

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be able to attend an Advanced Psychic Awareness Course in Didsbury, run by the very talented Leigh Knowles of The Soul Architect.  This post isn’t about that course, although if you are interested in that, I blogged about it here on SaucySailoress. This post is about a deck…

Life Lessons: 9 of Cups

As I write this Life Lesson for May, I am reluctantly drawing one last card from my Thoth Tarot deck.  Having spent a week using it almost exclusively to do my readings, both on the TABI forum and in real life, I have come to the conclusion that the Thoth Tarot is a vindictive deck. …

Celebrating Sabbats: Beltane

So until recently I knew nothing about Beltane except that it is May Day. I recall being taken to a village fete as a child by my Nana, and looking forward to seeing the older girls dancing with their ribbons around a May pole.  I recall the traffic being terrible, with it being a bank…
