The Red Queen

dav

For this past weekend’s International Tarot Day blog hop, I had been assigned another queen – the Blue Queen, aka the Queen of Swords. I had the idea to write about the qualities of the Divine Feminine through her and now I feel called to do the same about this queen who is equally gifted but in quite a different way! Read More

Well, hello! It’s been three long years since I last posted anything here. To be perfectly honest, I’d forgotten I even had this blog. I’d like to thank the person who subscribed today because if it weren’t for them, this blog would still be gathering cobwebs…  Read More

Are You A Witch? Plus Your Chance To Win The Archangel Tarot Deck

The High Priestess Archangel Power Tarot

“To me, a witch is a woman that is capable of letting her intuition take hold of her actions, that communes with her environment, that isn’t afraid of facing challenges.”
― Paulo Coelho

A woman who lets ‘her intuition take hold of her actions’ is a woman at odds with patriarchy and modern society.

She does not buy into the hype, nor the fearmongering. Read More

XX Karma Witches Tarot

In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.”
― John O’Donohue

So it will be my choice to not purchase any more Lo Scarabeo decks until they realise what a huge mistake this is…

Anyway, let’s move on from this tangent to more important matters. Read More

Can Fortune Tellers Who Tell The Truth Make Any Money?

The Fortune Teller Baroque Bohemian Cats

“I am the only one of us who brings in any money. The other two cannot make money fortune telling. This is because they only tell the truth, and the truth is not what people want to hear. It is a bad thing and it troubles people, so they do not come back.”
― Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman is so very astute in his observation here that I’m curious to find out what his own experience of the mad and mysterious world of fortune telling is. Read More
