Colors of Autumn Tarot Spread and Sample Reading – A Tarot Blog Hop

    Tree & Color Lore One of the most magical things happens in Fall is that many Trees put on an amazing color dance for us. It is so magical here in Canada to see this when the wheel turns this time of year. I was inspired by nature to create a Tarot Spread around the trees and the changing of their crowns. Before I change cameras and do a sample Tarot Reading with the Colors of Autumn Tarot Spread, I want to have a quick chat about the Trees and the colors I have chosen and the symbology and

It’s Tarot Q&A Time – Reading Tarot for Friends and Family

Today’s question is: When a friend or family member asks you for a Tarot reading what do you do? Will you read for people you are close to?   As always everything I mention here is my perspective and experience, take what resonates to you and leave the rest. Some people have no problem reading for family and friends. Please always go with what you feel the most comfortable with and do that. There is no right or wrong way to approach this. Always go with what feels right to you. Here are some things I would like to share

My 2011 Review Post with Video

Instead of the normal wrap up of 2011 blog post this year I just created a short silly video of photos of me taken from mostly my iphone this year. This is not me being serious, most of the photos I am pulling a face or just being silly.  Another heavy year 2011, I was writing last night and I just don’t know how I feel about a lot of the stuff that I create in my life. Like I am more of a spectator and just happen to have to roll with the punches instead of designing what happens

Pushing Sisyphus

This weekend past I spent my Saturday night at Drumming Circle at my friends wonderful spiritual property. Usually I am all for getting up and drumming on the ‘Thunder Drum’ which is big and sounds amazing but this weekend I was clearly in need of some heavy duty journeying. When the drumming started I was just unable to get my arm up to start swinging on my own handmade drum and I ended up in a meditative state very quickly. It was more than ok with me as there was some stunning wood flute playing, chanting and crystal bowl singing
