Lughnasa

by Anna Franklin, author of Pagan Ways Tarot. With the hot days of summer shortening, the Fool reaches the coast. He finds a voluptuous, reflective woman standing alone by the sea, which represents the unconscious mind. She holds a goblet in one hand and a sheaf of wheat in the other, symbolizing the harvest of water and earth. Behind her, the Sun is beginning to set in the west, descending into the Otherworld. “The Wheel…

Reflecting on Creating The Transparent Tarot

by Emily Carding, multi-talented creator of The Transparent Tarot (both 1st and 2nd Editions), The Transparent Oracle, and Tarot of the Sidhe. The Bolt of Inspiration It’s 12 years now since The Transparent Tarot was first released, and so it must have been a good couple of years before that (at a guess — publishing is a slow process but also I’m terrible with time) when I first had the idea and immediately started working…

Mysteries of the Grail

Few legends have captured our collective imagination as much as the tale of King Arthur and his Knights’ Quest for the Holy Grail.

Part 2: How to Use the Shadowland Tarot Deck

by Monica Bodirsky Last week in Part 1, I spoke about my own experiences with shadows, and as we move from winter to spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it is a perfect time to shake out a few cobwebs. Today in Part 2, I will share how I use a simple 3-card spread that will offer you insight and direction to a block you may be experiencing. Over the years I have found that most…

Shadows and Light

by Monica Bodirsky The first memory I have of seeing a shadow was an hour southeast of Detroit in Point Pelee National Park, Canada. I was two years old and my parents took our family camping to this beautiful space outside of the city during the hottest days of August. After unpacking after a long day we were exhausted and fell into our sleeping bags for the night in the refreshingly cool night air. We…

Using Tarot to Write Your Story

by Paula Chaffee Scardamalia I’m currently about a third of the way into my current work-in-progress, a contemporary fantasy romance inspired by figures from Greek mythology, particularly the Muses. As often happens with writing a novel, whether you are a beginner or are multi-published author, I was in a muddle about the middle. After more than 30,000 words, I’d lost sight of my direction through the story woods. So, of course, I turned to the…
