Tarot Gardens

Pinned Image
When I started reading cards in the 70's there was little variety.  Basically you bought the one deck and 2 books the shop offered and had to be satisfied with that. But things have certainly bloomed since then! 
Every so often I just Google tarot images to see what comes up,  and this time I was floating around Pinterest (isn’t that a way to kill an hour or three!) and came across the Tarot Gardens in Tuscany   
I’ve never heard of them before,  but they have some amazing sculpture by Niki de Saint Phalle based on the Major Arcana tarot cards.  I particularly loved her version of the Hierophant, who really does look like this in my head too
More beautiful images from the garden here and on so many pinterest boards!  As a friendly warning, don’t go there after midnight or you won’t get to bed till 2 am!

Teaching Tarot

The kind people from Evolver approached me and asked if I would offer a course in Tarot to their readership.  I created a 4 session course,  4 Wednesday nights in a row,  starting in 2 weeks - February,  27th.  We have a maximum of 10 spots available,  and the entire course will cost $200.

If you want to know more,  click here to go to the Evolver page,  or contact me.

So looking forward to it!

Fourth Year Anniversary

I've been writing this blog for 4 years now.  It's been a source of real joy for me. Initially I wrote it to show people that I am informed about the tarot. And indeed, I’ve gone through every single tarot card (just type the card you are interested in the left hand corner near the B, blog symbol and it will come up.) 

I’ve gone through the layout I use – Celtic Cross,  I’ve gone through the numbers,  what does it mean if you get lots of Aces etc…   I’ve written about issues as they have come up  - fertility, love,  what the cards reveal.  I’ve had people write to me that they dipped in for a minute and stayed for 20, which gives me great pleasure. 

Tarot is not a tool to say that on March 23rd you are going to meet a talk dark handsome stranger. It doesn’t ever claim to be able to predict in that way.  Tarot is a tool to see where your energy is strong and where it is stickier.  Where you can easily crest the wave (it’s a good time to look for new work /new opportunities at the existing work place right now) or where you need to shift (whatever you are doing to find a new job, it’s not working; it’s time to rethink and re-strategize your plans.)

If you come to me we always start with a cold reading, where I know nothing of you and just tell you what the cards tell me.  And then we analyze those cards – where do they work for us, where do we need to change, what’s not going to happen, what are we willing to do… 

Very pleased to have reached this point and looking forward to writing up the fifth year anniversary too…
