OK, one month between posts was not my intention when I started this blog almost six months ago. But, wow, has my ‘other’ job ever taken over. I suppose I forgot how busy a school can get in the last months before summer. You’d think after five years in the office, I’d know better.
But Tarot hasn’t taken a back seat completely. I’m still looking to schedule a beginner’s workshop and will post details here as well as publish details in local print publications (I’m going to give that a try this time around). I have been transfixed with the images of the Druid Craft Tarot http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/druidcraft/ and have been exploring its meaning and images when I draw my daily cards. I did draw the Wheel (X) and Rebirth (XX) a few days ago and left them out and visible; I loved the transformational energy of these two cards together! They reminded me that change will come and can provide an opportunity for rebirth. Since I am exploring future career paths options, this was welcome news. I find it helpful at times to leave cards out for several days after drawing them to help me focus on where I intend to go.
I have also bought the Voyager deck (see it’s beautiful images at Aeclectic Tarot or check out James Wanless’ site, the creator of the Voyager Tarot deck) http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/voyager/index.shtml http://www.voyagertarot.com and am only just exploring this modern deck.
And finally, I have registered for two workshops and a reading with Mary Greer! To put this into perspective (OK, maybe a little ‘out-of-perspective’ since I am a big fan of her work and have several of her titles on my shelf, including a very well-used “Tarot for Your Self”), Mary Greer is to Tarot as Wayne Gretzky is to hockey. She is coming to Toronto in June and I have just sent my payment to James Wells, who is organizing this event. A Fathers’ Day gift to myself!
