Non-Traditional Tarot Decks: An Argument

This is also why I say that Tarot is an on-going lesson. You’re always a student. If you think you have mastered it and there is nothing left to learn, then you need to check your ego. It’s like saying that you’ve read every story that could possibly be told.

Of course, it isn’t just communication that it represents, but logic and the intellect as well.

M or W: Considering the Letter on the Ace of Cups

This post probably should have come last week when the focus was in fact on the Ace of Cups, but I didn’t have anything to say on the matter until now. On the Rider-Waite Ace of Cups, there is what is debatably a W or…

Writing Promt: Good News
