Acing It

Welcome to the first Blog Hop of 2017. In this, the 5th birthday of the Imbolc Hop, our wrangler has asked us: 

How can I best foster the energy of the Aces in my life?

Well, I did laugh when I read that, but before I explain why, here are the usual navigation links to enable you to move through the Hop posts:

Strike A Light

Welcome to my contribution to the Yule/Winter Solstice Tarot Blog Hop. Our wrangler has  instructed us to “to go back to the Dark Side of the Winter Solstice” and reveal “a useful message from the Dark or Hidden realm of life. I’ve been a little loose in my interpretation of this directive and chosen to focus on light in the darkness.

Before I elaborate, here are the navigation links to guide you through this Hop:

By GAD!

Welcome to another Tarot Blog hop post. In this, the Hallowe’en/Samhain instalment, we have been asked to seek guidance from our ancestors or ghosts on what we need to work on in the year to come. First, I must present you with the navigation links to guide you to my neighbours:

For The Love Of…

Welcome to the Autumn edition of the Tarot Blog Hop. The theme this time is “Foodies Guide to the Tarot” and the brief is to take your readers on a gastronomy tour of the Tarot. How could I resist? Before I attempt to tickle you tastebuds, however, I must provide you with the navigation links to my neighbours and the master list:

A World View

Welcome to the Solstice Edition of the Tarot Blog Hop. On this occasion we were given the instruction to create a Tarot card from junk mail or “artwork that someone else has done”. Obviously, this is something of a major problem given that this blog is dedicated to my work on a Tarot deck so it would be inappropriate to use someone else’s.

Root of All…

Welcome to the Vernal Equinox Tarot Blog Hop. Today’s topic, as set by yours truly, is the role of Tarot in relation to money. Before we get our teeth into this meaty and bunny-free topic, here are some navigation links to help you find your way to my neighbouring posts or, if you’re lost, the master list.

Cornucopia

This post is part of the Tarot Blog Hop and our wrangler, Maureen, asked us “which card in the Tarot most corresponds with your own interpretation of the second harvest of the Autumnal Equinox” and invited us to create this card ourselves. But before we continue to my efforts in this regard, here are the links to enable you to navigate this Hop:

I must admit that I initially misread the specification for this Hop and was all set to create a new card, but after a long and busy Summer, my muse is off on her holidays somewhere and all I can think about is my planned Devil card. (Coming soon – watch this space!) I think you’ll agree that the Devil doesn’t really fit the bill on any level when it comes to a representation of the Equinox or, indeed, Autumn, and I was left scratching my head. That said, it has inspired me to add some additional cards to my deck to explicitly represent the seasons, so again, watch this space! 😀 Read more “Cornucopia”
