Is Tarot natural? Is it supernatural? Where does it fit in the Great Cosmic LEGO Set of our universe? I ask these questions largely out of an idle sense of curiosity and a childish desire to use a LEGO metaphor on my blog. But I think these questions are worth asking, because the Tarot community–and […]Read more "On Nature and the Natural"
PREVIOUS BLOG| MASTER LIST | NEXT BLOG I finally did it! I figured out how to join the Tarot Blog Hop. Hallelujah, praise the Lawd. For anyone not familiar, the Tarot Blog Hop is a round-table where, eight times per year, Tarot bloggers from across the internet all tackle the same Tarot-related prompt. This is […]Read more "Tarot Blog Hop: Respecting the Tarot"

I have learned about myself that I cycle through the Minor Arcana every five years or so. Although you wouldn’t know it to look at me now, […]Read more "In Which I Am Terrified of Cups"
I’m a Tarot purist. I have never liked oracle cards, and even Tarot decks that veer too far from what I consider traditional (i.e. RWS, Thoth, or TdM) make me squirm in my seat like a four-year-old who doesn’t want to eat his cauliflower. However, my reasons for disliking oracle decks are not the same […]Read more "Why I Don’t Read Oracle Decks"
