Wheel of the Year for Skyfae: January

So on the first of the year I pulled 12 cards to help outline areas that may need my special attention in the year ahead, one for each month of the year. Each month I will draw three more cards to focus on the Mind, Body & Spirit of that particular month. Here are my…

Faerie Friday Oracle

Today I opened up the Faerie Oracle by Brian Froud and I swear all the cards just jumped out of nowhere and went all over the place…because fairies…. Evidently they want some time out in the light. Sure. Ok. The one card I managed to keep in my hand as the rest just exploded all…

Of Wind and Willpower

Today I pulled cards from a couple different decks. One was for Will of the Way on Facebook, and another was for my Keen blog to help build visibility and prosperity. What touched me was not only that I drew the Eagle card from the Animal Messages deck by Susie Green but also He of…

Tarot lessons in Pop Culture

In the Tarot there are many who feel that the Fool begins his journey new-born and unaware of the dangers they may face. He seems reckless and headstrong because the Fool only acts on instinct. The Fool has no concept of others, only self. I agree with this assertion, though I urge everyone to do…

In many decks the wands are represented in a diagonal on the card in question, this diagonal action usually indicates…

Tarot of the Day: Five of the Wands

The five of wands hails from the element of Fire! In the Mythic Tarot we see a figure battling a dragon for the prize of a golden sheep.  Those of you with a mythological background will appreciate the inherent story here. This card is giving us a heads up that we are, or will be…

The day after Judgment

I realized with a little help through one of my inspirations (Leonie Dawson) that really what holds me back is fear. Fear of being too far out there, too much of myself and my struggles, my caustic sense of humor and my childlike sense of wonder always at opposite sides of my own self that…

Oracle decks are not Tarot

There are many tarot decks and oracle decks out there right now. However, they are not one and the same. Tarot decks are 78 card decks that follow roughly the same templates. Some decks will have a suit labeled as coins, and perhaps you are used to seeing pentacles? Again sometimes you will see staves,…
