Greetings [04 Feb 2007|07:01pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I'm new here.  I've been reading Tarot for about 30 years now.  Primarily, I use the Rider-Waite deck, but I've worked with the Thoth and the Ancestral Path Decks too.  I particularly love the Ancestral Path deck because of its multi-cultural symbology, and [of course] the beautiful artwork.  I have a question.  Did any of you draw The Tower card on 9-11-2001?  I did and it was such an apt card for that tragic day that I cannot help but think other people must have drawn it, or combinations of its like.  Please let me know.

I recolored this one since I was unhappy with it. Here's the new version http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/47497449/

I think it's better. I've finished The Hermit, Temperance, the 8 of Wands, 3 of Swords, and the 5 of Cups. I'm now stuck on Pentacles. I don't like my 2 of Pentacles and none of the other cards are grabbing me... I need to finish one from each suit in order to submit it. Maybe I'll just go on to manother card. I have to draw an entire deck after all.

Hello [06 Jan 2007|07:04pm]

[ mood | new ]

Hello, I'm new here.

I've been dabbling in tarot for about six years, and seriously studing it for just over one year. Between my husband and I, we have four tarot decks; the Gendron, the Thoth, Crow's Magic, and Winged Spirits. My favorite card right now is Temperance.

I noticed this community doesn't have any memories saved, so I'm not sure if there are already reviews of any of our decks posted. So, I'll just ask; what do you think of these decks? Knowing which ones we own, are there others you'd recommend?

Anyway, blahblahblah-newbie-post, looking forward to visiting this fine corner of livejournal, isn't tarot the coolest, blah.

Oh, and I had a question about cleansing a tarot deck. I've gotten some excellent suggestions elsewhere, but what methods would you recommend, and if it involves incense, what herbs or scents should I use?

Beginner [28 Dec 2006|12:54pm]

I started doing Tarot readings/research about 6 months ago. I am totally fasinated.

I do two types of spreads: Celtic and one-card daily guideance.

I am also wondering if I should worry about reversed cards (opposite meanings) or not. Probaby won't for now.

What is a significator card?

How can on-line tarot readings be as accurate is doing a personal reading and the person holds the cards, etc.?

Handmade Rune Sets [16 Jun 2006|02:55pm]

I recently made my first set of runes as a gift for a woman's pagan swap circle. They were so well received, that I've decided to expand my site - PhoenixFire Designs - to offer them for sale. These sets are entirely handcrafted and no two sets are alike. I can easily customize them to whatever color you'd like. Each set comes with full-color symbol meanings and large pouch for storage.

This is a pearlescent white with gold set.

And here are two other sample colors, though I can do any color you'd like. (No extra charge.)

I hope anyone who's interested in runes, or who have wanted a set would consider ordering ones that are handmade rather then mass produced. Each set is made with loving care.

Animals Divine Tarot [16 Feb 2006|06:49pm]

[ mood | broke ]

Okay, so right after purchasing the Visconti Gold Tarot, I went overboard and purchased another deck the day-after. I promise that this is going to be my last tarot purchase for a long, long time. I just couldn't resist, the artwork was stunning and it was accompanied by a book and carrying case. Okay, so I'm definitely broke now, no doubt about it. XD

Ah, I've never seen beautifully illustrated cards such as these. They're in watercolor but solidly breath-taking. Plus, if I'm doing a reading for another person, they won't get spooked by the illustrations since they're all dream-like and pleasant (even for the difficult cards). XD

Okay! Since you asked for it, here it is! The Page of Swords in color! I have not done the line toning on this yet. But it's pretty much done.

So Happy! Anybody has this book? [19 Jul 2005|10:39am]

Hey All,

I won a good Ebay bid lately. Which means I got 3 books in the mail. I hope they arrive soon, but I might not see them because I have a vacation planned. (Going away for 1 month yay!)
The one I am most excited about is: "Tarot for the Healing Heart" by Christine Jette. It has marvelous reviews, and I was always very curious about this book. It even has a MSN Group I think (or yahoo). I saw it somewhere but haven't had time to look into it, and am waiting till I get the book. She wrote other books as well, and one of the most famous is: Tarot Shadowwork, which works with the darker side of each of us.

You can read more about it on Amazon or Llewellyn.

Does anybody have this book?

Celtic Cross Spread [14 Jul 2005|12:57pm]

I just finally got my Quick and Easy tarot in the mail today. I'm attempting the Celtic Cross. Looking at the diagram on the card, I don't know how to flip card 2.

I know when you flip cards over, it's always from the side and never from top or bottom because you'd be flipping the cards upside down from their original position.

How do I flip the 2nd card?

The Three of Swords [06 Jul 2005|04:54pm]

Here is the next card in my tarot deck. This card pretty much sums up my life so I really enjoyed drawing it. It's my favorite card in just about any deck. http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/20287784/

Egyptian Tarot by Silvana Alasia [06 Jul 2005|07:36am]

[ mood | curious ]

I'm very new to tarot decks. In fact, I don't know anything about them. I bought the egyptian tarot deck on ebay (and later bought "Quick and Easy" tarot since I was told the egyptian deck was too advanced for me. Still waiting for it to come in the mail.) and was glad to get it. Even if I never use it, I'm a sucker for anything egyptian.

I went straight to my favorite card, Strength. And it was misspelled as "STRENGHT".

Does anyone have any experience with this deck? Is this a genuine error or is it possible I bought a cheap knock-off? It says "Llewellyn" on the side of the box and "Lo Scarabeo" on the top.

Introducing =) [02 Jul 2005|12:33am]

Hello All,

I have just recently joined the community. I saw another member posted a Spread of mine. I hope she will edit the post to credit me.
I've been a member on Aeclectic Tarot Forum for almost a year now. I had a livejournal before, but not for my Tarot Endeavours.
I'm planning to post here with any new Spreads or other interesting things. The Tarot Lessons and Tips will be in my home journal, unless it's nice enough to post here.
If you want Readings, you can find me at my website.

Kind Greetings,

What's in your heart spread [08 Jan 2005|10:00am]

I found this neat spread on the Aeclectic Forum That I wanted to share with you. It looked interesting.

1. What love has meant to you in the Past –
2. How you think about love –
3. How you feel about love –
4. What you expect from love –
5. What you want from love
6. Obstacles you need to overcome –
7. What you will learn from love –
8. How to let your good qualities shine
9. How you would like love to hit you –
10. What type of person would make you the happiest –
11. What can you do to find that person –
12. +13. Unexpected things in the near future concerning love –

The spread looks like this :

ETA: The creator of the spread has come forward and has asked me to credit her with the spread (see above I took no credit for this spread, just as something that I found on another fourm)


To be honest I am not sure where I found it on the fourms-- She requested I post the link but I have long since lost it. But here is a link to Aeclectic Tarot Forum.

If the author wants me to post the exact thread, I will have to remove this post.

Introduction [06 Jan 2005|07:49am]

I should have posted this first! I feel so rude not introducing myself first. My name is Ceit and I have been interested in Tarot for some time. I have been studing tarot for about a year. I have seven deck currently and have about 9 books. My favorite decks right now are The Secret Tarot, The Gothic Tarot of Vampires, and the Gothic Tarot. They tend to give me a really good read.

I have started to read for other people, but I have to feel comfortable with them. If I get a bad vibe, I don't read.

For myself, I do a seven card Question spread every other day or so. I do a Celtic Cross when I have a tough questions. Lately I have been looking at other spread to do, just getting comfortable with card meanings.

I look forward to being apart of these communities.

Pentacles in a Relationship Spread Help [06 Jan 2005|07:34am]

I tried out the Relationship Spread I found in the Aeclectic Tarot forum. I like this spread, it's easy and I think it works. I have done 7 Card Questions Spreads and it was giving me the same cards as well. I used the secret tarot for this reading.

I have been getting a lot of Pentacle cards when it comes to my current relationship. I am not sure how it relates.. Here is the most current reading-- Could some one help me out?
