Fir the first time really ever, I’ve been drawn to animal-based Tarot decks (which I think is highlighted in my interest in the Wild Unknown Tarot). I wanted to explore something deeper, something outside the bounds of humanness, and I didn’t really understand why.
Then I came across this blog post. It’s a fantastic and beautiful read, and it kind of answered the why of my interest. Since then I’ve been working on the exercises at the end of the post, and really have been having fantastic experiences.
