Judgment #tarot #tarotmixtapeplaylist

The guest DJ for the Judgment card is Theresa Reed. Theresa is here and has lots of new goodies on her site for readers and clients.  Spend some time there, you won’t be sorry.   And I’ve got nothing to add to Judgment.  What a beautiful story -thank you for sharing it, T.  I’ll Follow You Into The Dark by Death Cab For Cutie. Judgment is about awakening and rebirth. It’s the card of “hearing the call” but it also is a reminder that a phase is coming to an end and it’s time to take stock of where you’ve …

I will study your confusions till I understand, if you will realize, I have confusions of my own – Joseph Pintauro

It was brought to my attention that my last Little Fox Flashcard seemed exclusive or even transphobic.  As with all of these, my quotes are supposed to be humorous, memorable and sometimes crass.  I’m doing these social media meme things as a way to help people better understand tarot cards.  Most of them are snarky or funny one-liners that summarize the meaning of each card.  Some are song lyrics, some are bits of poetry. Whatever it is, it’s what I’ve learned the card to be for me when I read for my clients. For the three of Cups, I chose …

The Moon #tarotmixtapeplaylist #tarot

Theresa Reed tackled the Moon.  The Killing Moon by Echo and the Bunnymen. This song has always been a favorite one of mine. The music has a mysterious feel to it and the singing is moody and full of feeling – perfect for the The Moon! The lyrics create the perfect backdrop for a night of mystery and illusion: In starlit nights I saw youSo cruelly you kissed meYour lips a magic worldYour sky all hung with jewelsThe killing moonWill come too soon My take on the Moon card is Turpentine by  Brandi Carlile.  In the song, she is stuck …

Cleanliness becomes more important when godliness is unlikely. – PJ O’Rourke

I have know Karin for about twenty years, which is a crazy long time for someone to put up with me.  She’s this amazing kitchen witch and artist and crafty person.  We had a conversation about a month ago about tarot soap, and she’s already got them listed in her Etsy shop!  There is a bar of soap for each of the suits, and she’s considering a type of soap for each of the Major Arcana, too. Karin researched each of the suits and aligned the ingredients to line up with the element of each suit.  So, Pentacles are the …

You must imagine your life. And then it happens. – John Irving

I started writing a tarot book about three years ago.  It was kind of half-assed, if I’m honest.  I turned it into a manual, ignored it for a while, sent part of it to a publisher (which they properly declined) and then ignored it again.  But it kept bothering me.  I had this half written…thing…sitting there, asking me to finish it. Well, I just finished it.  I think it’s because of three things.  I went to Theresa Reed’s Soulful Proprietor workshop last year, and decided that I wanted to be a full-time tarot reader and writer.  Theresa told me to …

The Star #tarotmixtapeplaylist #tarot

After the Tower falls, the dust flies around and we feel exposed.  The Star steps in to take our hand and tell us that everything will be okay. I’ve got two songs for the Star card.   Shine by Anna Nalick speaks to the getting up and dusting yourself aspect of the Star. There is hope here. This card is about clarity, peace, and good things down the road. This is a card about rebounding, rebuilding and believing in yourself. After the Tower and the Devil and Death flip your life upside down, you get this gentle hand to help …

The Tower #tarotmixtapeplaylist #tarot

The Tower – not a great card, but I don’t think it’s really a bad one, either.  I think that it levels you – but sometimes that’s exactly what you need.   My song for the Tarot MixTape Playlist is “Born on Fire” by Ike Reilly.  It’s about those people who are born to make change – the physical embodiment of the Tower card.   Don’t let nobody try to dampen your flame Try to cool you down Try to make you change Try to steal your heat Or mock your desire Take your flames to the street Cause you …
