Full Pink Moon in Libra spread – The Lumina Tarot

Last night was a full moon - the Pink Moon in Libra. Of course, I had to pull a spread from my favorite tarot deck, the Lumina Tarot. I was curious what the cards held for me this lunar cycle. I also had a beautiful bouquet of pink roses that were just past their prime ... perfect for including in this reading.

Deck Review: Lumina Tarot by Inner Hue

The postman brought me happy mail the other day – the Lumina Tarot deck and guidebook I’d ordered arrived from Australia! I debated for quite some time about purchasing this deck, but in the end, the cards just spoke to me. Someone I know who is very into tarot purchased this deck and failed to connect with it, eventually finding it a new home because …

Tarot Deck Review: The Nomad Tarot

Tarot Deck Review: The Nomad Tarot by Jennifer Dranttel

I’m always on the hunt for a new and inspiring tarot deck. When I saw Jennifer Dranttel’s The Nomad Tarot on Instagram, I knew it was one I needed to add to my collection! It’s is self-published and available as a limited-reprint for $40. The accompanying guidebook is an additional $10. Her last printing sold out quickly, so if you’re interested, grab yours before they’re …

Tarot deck review: The Magical Realism tarot

I really like this deck. It's unique. It captures the beauty between photography and digital editing beautifully. She shoots and then works in Photoshop to achieve the ethereal look of the cards. A good word for them would be "dreamy."

I treated myself to another new tarot deck – the Magical Realism tarot by Cheryl Fair on Etsy. This deck was created in 2014 and published in January 2015. The Magical Realism tarot is another rather dark deck, in my opinion. (Anyone seeing a trend here?). The 78 card deck comes beautifully packaged with a black velvet drawstring storage bag for the cards and the …

My 2017 year-ahead tarot card reading

Shortly before 2016 ended, I sat down late one night and pulled a reading for the following year just for fun. It was suggested in Susannah Conway’s Unraveling Your Year workbook and despite doing the workbook every year for the last four years, this year was the first time I did the actual reading. I used my favorite deck: The Wild Unknown Tarot Deck. For …

Building my tarot journal

Building my tarot journal - Jennadesigns

One of my current projects is creating a tarot journal, something Susannah Conway outlines in her course 78 Mirrors, a course about tarot cards. Once I read about the idea of creating a “little white book” as she calls it, I was intrigued. Learning more about the meaning behind tarot cards appeals greatly to me and this project is a way to explore that even …

With which tarot card does your personality identify?

In her book Tarot 101: Mastering the Art of Reading the Cards, author Kim Huggens assigned the 16 personality types determined by the Meyers-Briggs personality test to corresponding tarot cards she thought embodied the essence of each personality. If you’ve never taken the test, hop over here and spend a few minutes … it’s enlightening. I’ve taken this test a number of time, most recently …

New oracle deck: Connected and Free by Inner Hue

The Connected and Free: The Alchemist's Oracle deck.

This past weekend, my mom also gifted me the Connected and Free: The Alchemist’s Oracle deck. I’ve been wanting this deck ever since I saw it on Pinterest. The design and illustration of the cards and companion booklet by Tegan Swyny of Colour Cult is what drew me in, along with the reviews I read. Connected and Free is the creation of Lauren Aletta, a …
