Once again I was tempted to try a different deck and pull a different card, but I've sort of learned to go with whatever comes up. Here we have the Page of Pentacles from the Sacred Rose Tarot by Johanna Gargiulo-Sherman. The art style may seem a little "70s-ish" but that's to be expected. The … Continue reading Weekly Card – Time for Study?
But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine. - Thomas Jefferson The Sun card is exactly what you would think: Success, happiness, achievement of goals and dreams. The sort of feeling you get when everything … Continue reading The Greater Part of Life is Sunshine
This makes me want to quit my day-job and do this full-time (if only one could get paid for efforts such as this). Only one shot here, but do go check out the whole blog post at Madshobbithole's blog. It's breathtaking. (thanks to Margrét Helgadóttir @MaHelgad) UPDATED 1/27/13: I should have added, if you want … Continue reading More Miniature Madness
Sorry to be late with this week's post. I was deep into edits on the vampire novel last night and barely stopped for a bio-break. Happily I'm about 2/3 of the way through the first round of revisions and then I'll be looking for beta readers to give it a look. I did, however, manage … Continue reading Guiding Star
Here’s our lovely card for the week, the Ace of Wands from the Victorian Romantic Tarot by Baba Studio in Prague. The Ace of Wands is the root of the creative powers, a beginning, fire energy. This could be good. A new creative undertaking about to take off? Maybe Prometheus has some fire from the … Continue reading Feeling Creative?

The World card indicates pretty much what you see: Being on top of the world, having things come out in your favor, your plans coming to fruition, cause for celebration. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they … Continue reading I’ll Take One World, Please
I had a request to use this deck so this week's card is from the Baroque Bohemian Cats deck (3rd edition) from Baba Studio. This is a wonderful, whimsical deck of anthropomorphic cats dressed in rich garments, with backgrounds taken from locations in and around Prague. Cats, sumptuous fabrics and Prague, what more can we … Continue reading Strength
Our weekly card. Sometimes I pick one out that seems to be vying for my attention more strongly than the rest, but this week I went through the whole deck and couldn't decide on one (although there were several contenders) so I shuffled and cut the deck and let the Cosmos decide what we needed … Continue reading Self-confidence
This card immediately made me think of "Little Women". If you're a guy and haven't read it or even know what it is, it's a book by Louisa May Alcott about four sisters during the Civil War while their father is off fighting and they and their mother and aunt try to keep the household … Continue reading A Gentle Start for the Week
Well, this was just going to be a quick post to show the card, as our ‘thought for the coming week’ but the quote got me started thinking, as I’m sure it was intended to do. The card is from Charlene Livingstone's Art of Life Tarot. I do think this is an interesting choice for … Continue reading Thoughts as I Thinketh
