Tarot Reading for the Collective ~ October 2017

Dear Collective, For this month’s Tarot Reading for the Collective I am using The Collective Tarot by The Tarot Collective, partly because seeing the word ‘collective’ repeatedly amuses me, but mostly because it is a beautifully inclusive deck which soothes my tired, world-weary parts. Perhaps this deck can soothe your weary parts too. This month’s questions … Continue reading

Tarot Reading for the Collective ~April 2016

Dear Readers, this month’s Tarot Reading for the Collective is brought to you by The Collective Tarot by the Tarot Collective.

So the month of April began with some falling teeth. Not literally of course (although, no doubt, somewhere on the planet right now, someone’s teeth are falling out. Hopefully not yours), the 7 of Bones kind of teeth, more commonly known as the 7 of Pentacles. The 7 of Bones calls on us to remember … Continue reading

We catch the 9 of Keys mid-leap as she embodies her capacity for self-trust and surrender to her chosen path of growth. We could wait around for a chance to speak with her, but no doubt she would say that the understanding of her wisdom was in the experience and is something that cannot be … Continue reading
