The Magician #tarot #tarotmixtapeplaylist

The Magician exudes self-confidence. He’s got all of the tools of the tarot in front of him – pentacle, wand, cup and sword, but he doesn’t need them. He has his own wand – usually pointing up and down, which calls to the Wiccan prayer, “As above, so below”. He is in control of the elements. He is calling the shots. The Magician uses his own energy to make things happen. He’s looking straight ahead and is completely aware of his abilities. This card always reminds me that We are magic. The four classic tools of magic lie there ignored. …

The Fool #tarot #tarotmixtapeplaylist

The songs that come to mind with this card, for Tarot MixTape Playlist ™ purposes are these.  One is highly inappropriate, and one of my favorites.  🙂  Jump, you f*cker jump- just that line alone sings the Fool to me.  Jump, because you’re going to miss everything if you don’t get moving.  And the simplicity of “Three Little Birds” ties in nicely with the simplicity of the Fool.  Everything is gonna be alright.  Even if it’s not the alright you were looking for.   xo LFT

U is for Unveiling #atozchallenge

Thanks, BP for your suggested for today’s blog.  I’d been wanting to talk about the High Priestess, but couldn’t figure out how to fit it in.  And here we go. I wrote about her here, but she’s such an interesting card, I thought I’d give it another go.   One of the things I like about the tarot is that there are a billion decks to choose from.  Some cards in the Rider Waite deck bring it on home to me, and some make me want to claw my face off out of frustration.  I can’t make any sense of the …

He is the cheese to my macaroni. ― Diablo Cody

Bill asked me if I could do readings for couples.  I can, but as I’ve gotten more experience with readings, I usually don’t. When a couple calls for a reading – and it’s a planned thing- they’re usually on the same page in their relationship.  I’ve done readings for anniversaries and birthdays, and the couples for whom I’ve read have been looking in the same direction.  I can do one reading for both people, or a reading for each and they are generally in sync and oftentimes have some of the same cards.  Those readings are super.  Some of my …

Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t going away. ― Elvis Presley

  Maybe the dark things that live in the corners of my brain aren’t so scary after all?  Maybe I can take them out and let some light shine on them. That’s the Sun card.  Everything is moved into the light.  I get an image in my head of the sunshine reaching into the darkest, deepest corners of us.  Burning away the sadness, the lies and distortions, the broken trusts and broken hearts.  The sunshine illuminates and enlightens us, and shows us that when the shadows and dark and twisties go away, it’s not so scary out here after all. …

Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won’t adhere to any rules… – Tom Robbins

The Lovers.  Aw, come on.  What a gorgeous image.  The sun is shining high and bright, the Angel of Outlandish Headgear is giving a blessing, with its own fog machine, The Tree of Knowledge (complete with serpent) one one side and a burning bush on the other.  Hello, overt Biblical references!  How ya doing.  You gotta love Rider Waite. That’s this card.  It doesn’t even have to be romantic, although that’s most often the case.  Some people who walk around on this Earth are Tribe.  They’re yours.  You might take a couple of decades to find them, but once you …
