Dear Collective, For this month’s Tarot Reading for the Collective I am using a Major Arcana deck devoted to the art of Keith Haring, Tarot of the World in Colours by Eugene Vinitski. I found it late last year on Etsy, while having one of those searches-with-tarot-as-the-keyword that can be rather time-consuming and perhaps should-be-avoided. However, I am … Continue reading
