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…

…to Honor our Love Relationships Whether you love the idea of celebrating Valentine’s Day or hate it, having a day set aside for the celebration of love relationships is nothing new. Many historians suggest this tradition has its roots in the ancient Roman festival called “Lupercalia” celebrated between February 13-15, a revelry of fertility rites that officially started Rome’s springtime. Eventually, the Catholic church used the compassionate stories of their Saint Valentine to reshape the…

Great Artists of Tarot

–or–What We’re Thankful For It’s Thanksgiving Day in the US, traditionally the day most folks gather together to share a meal and give thanks for all that’s good in their lives. Of course, tomorrow has been ominously named “Black Friday”—a day of copious consumption and spending frenzies so oxymoronic to the preceding day set aside for gratitude, that it can boggle the equanimous mind. Here at Red Feather, we have much to be thankful for:…
