PREVIOUS BLOG - MASTER LIST - NEXT BLOGThis Tarot Blog Hop theme is the Union of Opposites. My take on this are some of the opposing Tarot Combinations that can come up during a Tarot Reading.Tarot Combinations are something that I love exploring. It is even better when you have more than one person have a look at the cards and see what they see in the combination. We all see different and interesting things which is one of the great things about the Tarot.I have a list of pairs of what I would consider opposites or that picture some...

I was sitting at work today thinking about the revolving door the industry I am currently in has and reflecting on peoples impact in a work place. What I have come to realize is that most people have very little or no impact in a workplace.Most people are replaceable and everyone around them either also leaves or forgets about them, only to see periodic LinkedIn or Facebook updates from them. And if you actually liked the person you may comment on a photo every now and then. Sure we all miss the lively social butterfly when they leave or we...

There is also the part of me that is resisting it.  I can't help but enter any sacred space and immediately miss my coven sisters and my community in...

Blessed with some time this weekend I conducted a 2014 Tarot Forecast for myself for 2014. I am currently working through Leonie Dawson's 2014 Create Your Amazing Year workbook - Life and Biz Edition. In the workbook there is a double page spread for a yearly oracle forecast. So I decided to do mine with my favorite Tarot deck for reading for the last few years and see what was in store for 2014. A LOT OF DUDES The first thing that I noticed was that this was a VERY masculine reading. In fact the only card that has a women on...
