Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ March 2017

Dear Collective, Welcome to March’s Tarot Reading for the Collective, and welcome to my latest tarot deck acquisition – The Disciples Tarot by Kathryn Thyme Giese. I came across this deck late one night on Instagram, scrolling, scrolling, until… “oooh that’s pretty what’s that”? Five minutes later, after looking at enough of the images available … Continue reading

A Tarot Reading for The Missing Five (and the Rescued Two)

For those of you who aren’t aware, last Monday my sparkly, flower-laden Tarot Divination Bicycle was vandalised and five of the tarot cards attached to my spokes were stolen! While my bike and I are quite safe and we all should have nothing but compassion for he who did the deed, it was a rather … Continue reading

Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ February 2017

 Dearest Collective, With another month comes another Tarot Reading for the Collective, and believe it or not, I am not using one of my ‘latest new tarot decks’ this time. I am revisiting a beautiful vintage-style tarot deck that came out a couple of years ago, The Relative Tarot by Carrie Paris. This month’s questions … Continue reading

Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ January 2017

Dear Collective, To start 2017, instead of asking several questions for us to contemplate this month, I thought I’d just ask, which 5 archetypes can serve us best in 2017? Or rather, which archetypes can show us what we need to see, and help us stay on track. This month I am using my newest … Continue reading

Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ December 2016

Dear Readers,   We round out this year’s Tarot Readings for the Collective, with the all-encompassing Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert. I used Joanna’s major arcana deck Pentimento Tarot for May’s Collective Reading, and eagerly watch for everything that she creates. The by-line for the Gaian Tarot says ‘Healing the Earth. Healing Ourselves’. I think … Continue reading

Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ November 2016

Dear Readers, This month I am using the newest deck in my collection (and yes I aware of how I often I am saying “my newest deck…”!) the Pagan Otherworlds Tarot by Uusi. Not only are the cards exquisitely drawn, the card stock feels amazing – so smooth and silky. I love holding and shuffling these cards – … Continue reading

Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ October 2016

I was going to work with a different deck of cards for this month’s Collective Reading, but I couldn’t start the process, and I began to think that perhaps this wasn’t the right month for that particular deck after all. So I went about my day-to-day business, wondering which tarot cards wanted to speak to … Continue reading

Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ September 2016

Dear Readers, This month I am in the mood for a deck that challenges the ways our eyes are used to looking at tarot imagery. I have chosen The Orbifold Tarot by Michael Bridge-Dickson, and I love the beautiful, shiny, colourful, geometric shapes contained therein. On the inside of the box containing this tarot deck … Continue reading

A Tarot Reading for the Collective for my Queer Community, post Orlando

Today I got an email from a member of my community, asking if I might do a special Tarot Reading for the Collective in the aftermath of the Orlando shooting. I know a lot of us are in pain right now, and I am so up for doing this, and so here it is. This … Continue reading

Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ June 2016

Welcome to June, and welcome to The Elora Tarot Project, a tarot deck that came into the world when Shelley Carter from Elora, Ontario, Canada, invited 65 local artists to create the 78 tarot card images. Shelley is quoted on the inside of the tarot box, “There was magic at work when this community got … Continue reading
