Goodbye 2017!

The end of the year is finally at our feet, we have gone through many ups and downs. I’m so ready for 2018 to begin, lots of intentions have been set and I can’t wait to see what the new year brings. Today I’m sharing a spread + reading I mashed together to close out the year and bring in the new. If you use this spread, let me know in the comments!

I used the Next World Tarot for this reading for myself! This deck just landed yesterday and I am over the moon! I will be talking more about this deck soon on the blog, I have a lot to say about it… it’s just amazing, I’ll leave it at that.

PAGE OF WANDS
From the book “you will soon know the depth of your magic” gave me chills down my spin. Most of 2017 has felt a lot like I was always starting over, again and again. I can’t even count how many times I said “fresh start” every month. I constantly felt like a beginner in all aspects of my path and practice, yet I knew I was not, I just couldn’t feel it. This card suggests to me that I’m ready to evolve onto the next stage that I have been preparing myself for  this year. I’m ready to the take the next step in my evolution. While I’m leaving this behind in 2017, I will still have it with me as a reminder.

THE FOOL
My first priorities in 2018 will be to take new leaps forward without worry, it’s time to clean the slate and embrace the unknown. When starting out on new adventures, we never know what the end result will be… we may have an idea, but in reality, that all can change at the drop of a dime. The Fool is here to let me know that I need to start the new year with no set expectations, take it one day at a time and prepare for the unexpected. I always see the Fool as an archetype of trying new things without expecting anything to happen, it’s about curiosity with no judgement. We may not understand how something works and that’s ok, we’ll soon figure out the pieces to the puzzle as time goes on.

4 OF CUPS
My focus in the new year will be to give no fucks, plain and simple. The woman in this card is totally focused on herself at the moment and she clearly doesn’t give a shit, I treasure this since I’m constantly worried about what others are thinking of me or if I’m doing something wrong. This is all about a “you do you” type of vibe radiating from this card, embrace the energy of not caring what others are doing and put more emphasis on what I’m doing! I also get a strong self care vibe from this card, this is an intention I have already set for 2018 so it was nice to see it show up here, it confirms that this is what I truly need in 2018.

QUEEN OF WANDS
I’m leaving behind the Page of Wands because I’ll be learning how to come into my power as the Queen of Wands. What a transformation! Being that this is a card transitioning from the Page, it tells me to be open to the teachings yet to come and soak in all the lessons being sent my way to help transform into the energy of this card. The Queen of Wands is asking me to step into my true magic, and I’m ready! While I have practiced and played around as the Page of Wands, fine tuning my creative actions and passions, I’m ready to put everything into use and share it with others.

One thing that stood out the most to me in this reading was the growth happening between the Page of Wands and the Queen of Wands. I’m leaving behind the Page role and learning to move into a Queen role, it’s time to move this creative energy into a more vibrant energy in my life. I have been in practice and it’s time to put everything I have learned to use. I also love seeing the Fool in this reading, it’s exactly how I feel going into 2018. I have a lot of visions to manifest!

After taking a step back to look at this reading, one thing I noticed was the directional of movement happening with the Fool and 4 of Cups. They are both facing the Queen of Wands and heading in that direction.

Between the first card and last card are the stages needed to progress. It’s like, once I let go and relax into myself I am then able to put on the crown.

Hello, Heart and Hands Tarot!

Getting cozy on the blog today with the Heart & Hands Tarot by Liz Blackbird! I was hoping to get this post up last week but with the holidays and craziness…. I got pretty distracted and swamped, haha! Better late than never, right?

I first came across this deck on Kate’s blog, Daily Tarot Girl, she does a weekly tarot reading and has used this deck a few times, I fell in love instantly! I’ve had a chance to really dive into this deck before doing this post and I have to say, it’s one of my current favorites. I’m loving the artwork and how well it reads for me, it speaks volumes and packs a punch with readings. There is so much to look at in each card, it’s like I discover something different every time.

First off, this is a large deck! It’s one of the biggest I’ve used yet, even larger than the Collective Tarot and Bonefire Tarot (if you are familiar with those then you’ll know what I mean). However, I’m not finding any trouble shuffling this deck since I have very long hands and fingers, I feel that if the deck were smaller in size you would lose a lot of detail in the artwork so I clearly understand why this deck was made so large. The illustrations are stunning and so detail orientated! The cards measure a whopping 3.5 inches x 5.5 inches and stacked together with a  thickness of 1.25 inches.

The deck comes in a sturdy box, an accordion style booklet, and an title/artist card on top of the deck itself. While the cards have thick white bordered, they go with the deck and don’t feel like borders at all. The artwork steps outside of these borders in each card and allows the images to really pop!

love this deck so much! I used it for a week straight for my daily pulls and the energy surrounding the cards were awesome. It’s been pretty spot on for myself in personal readings I’ve done, I haven’t had a chance to read for others yet with this deck (my reading shop will be back open next month). Due to the card size, I try to keep the readings to just 1-4 cards just because of my table size, but it would look gorgeous in a larger spread! I could go on and on about this deck, I’m shocked that I don’t see it everywhere on Instagram and online, it’s such a great deck! Go get this deck!!


Now, let’s see what this deck has to say! I’m using my favorite deck interview spread by Little Red Tarot.

1. TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF. WHAT IS YOUR MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTIC?
(5 of Cups) You tend to focus solely on what needs your attention right away. I love how this card has a shadow only showcasing what has gone wrong (the spilled cups), yet there are two fresh glasses sitting right in front of you.

2. WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS AS A DECK?
(Ace of Swords) First off, love this card in this deck! This card tells me that the deck has strength in how it speaks – it brings a fresh outlook to the table with a sharp perspective. I really feel that with this deck, it has me thinking about the cards in new light even though it follows the RWS style pretty well.

3. WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITS AS A DECK?
(The Moon) Not everything will be shown, you like to keep somethings hidden and secret. In order to dive in further, the reader really needs to rely heavily on intuition to feel their way around the cards imagery.

4. WHAT ARE YOU HERE TO TECH ME?
(4 of Swords) Take things slow… I tend to zip through my own personal readings, but this card tells me that this deck likes a little more relaxed. There is no rush, just enjoy this quiet time between the cards and I (over coffee).

5. HOW CAN I BEST LEARN AND COLLABORATE WITH YOU?
(6 of Swords) My first reaction to this card is saying I need to let myself to go on a journey with this deck and allow it to take the lead, just trust in the deck as to where we’ll end up. I relate the 6 of Swords to a card of mental movement, moving yourself to a better headspace and I feel like the boat in this card is the deck and I am the swords. This deck is a breath of fresh air.

6. WHAT IS THE POTENTIAL OUTCOME OF OUR WORKING RELATIONSHIP?
(Wheel of Fortune) Ah! It’s all on the table of fate, take a spin of the wheel and go through the cycles. This card tells me that I will most likely put it in a good rotation with my other decks and I’ve already been doing that so it was funny to see this card show up.

Weekly Reading Dec 25 – 31

Ok, so this is late and I debated on even posting at all today… but I really felt the cards were on point this week as we wrap up the last week of 2017 so I decided to post this anyways since there is still a lot left of the week! I got pretty swamped with family and Xmas things going on yesterday, I think a lot of us did too, haha!

This week I’m using two new decks – the Divina Tarot that I got for Xmas and the Strange Lands Oracle that I received on Friday! I’ll be working on a first glance review for both decks for the blog soon, I’m a little backed up with deck reviews, oop’s! I plan on posting the Heart & Hands Tarot review this week (finally) so keep an eye out for that!

Ok, let’s take a peek at the energies present this week (or what is left), as well as the general theme of the week.

10 of Wands

It’s no surprise that the 10 of Wands showed up, it was a busy start to the week for many of us and continues to be as we play catch up and start wrapping up the end of the year. This card is letting you know that you don’t have to do it all on your own, there are others around us who would love to help out even if it’s doing the simplest of tasks, you just have to ask. Don’t overload yourself, you’ve done enough already! If your stuck in the middle of something and can’t get the help you need, let it be known that what you are doing will be worth the effort you’re putting in. Anytime I have to do something hard or have a lot on on my plate, I try to think that this will soon be just a memory… it will be over before you know it! You got this!

The Star

Ahh, the Star, our beckon of hope and nod from the Universe. The Star is here in the middle of it all to let you know that you are being supported in everything and anything you do this week. Pour out all your wishes and dreams into your journal and start setting some intentions. These dreams can easily be made into reality, you just need to put them out there and make them visible! Create a brand spankin’ new vision board, set intentions with a small ritual (you don’t have to wait for the New Moon), or even just write down your intentions on paper and tape them to your bathroom mirror. Keep these intentions fresh in your mind and where you can see them every day! Whatever you decide to do, know that the Universe is giving you a high five!

Death

Could we get a more perfect card to embrace the energy of this final week in 2017?! Why yes, things are for sure ending! This card is here to remind us that what is leaving us this week is for a good reason, we don’t need to drag anything holding us back into the next week (and year). Cut the cords to that which bind us and slow us down, we are on to much better and brighter things if we could only lighten our load! I’m drawn to the direction that “death” is heading, they are clearing away everything in their path and moving towards the future. Be this gnarly reaper and get to work clearing the path to make space for what lies ahead… extra points if you wear a Grim Reaper costume while cleaning the house!

Nostalgia

Our theme this week is all about memories and I feel like this card is bitter sweet. It’s telling us to take some time this week to dive back into the past and remember the good over the bad. Hold tight to the positives and release the negatives. Let’s use this time to look over our bucket list and see what got done this year!


I hope everyone had a great holiday! Did you get a new deck for Xmas, let me know in the comments what you got!

Weekly Reading Dec 18 – 24

The weekly readings are back! I took some time off from doing them and didn’t plan on bringing them back until January, but I was having a pretty low key Sunday… so why not?! I hope everyone’s December has been going well, I know this is a busy time of the month for a lot of us!

This week I’m using the Heart & Hands Tarot, I’ll be posting a first impressions of this deck in a few days! I just got it last week and I’m obsessed with it. It has been so fun reading with and has really packed a punch for me lately. I also pulled a card from the Forces Flora + Fauna Oracle, you can read about this deck here. Let’s see what energies are at play this week! I’m not sticking with my normal “beginning, middle, end of the week” reading – I just want to see what energies are popping up for us and I have to say, I miss doing freeform readings like these!

Two of Coins

A lot of us are busy at work, finishing up holiday shopping, and trying to squeeze in time with family all while trying to keep the house running smoothly and everything in balance. This card suggests to me that we need to be sure we maintain some harmony, don’t over do it! It can be so easy to exhaust ourselves right now so be sure to take breaks and make time for yourself. I know we all want to get everything done, but face it, we can’t do it all. Our best approach this week is to tackle things one at a time and get the most important tasks checked off our list first, that way we can nibble away at the smaller things throughout the week. If you struggle with keeping your head above the water this time of year don’t be afraid to ask for some help! Better to ask for help than to drop the ball on something crucial, right?

Four of Wands

Following in the 2 of Coins footsteps… now I know why a reminder to keep balanced revealed itself this week, it’s so we can make room for fun! This is a perfect time of year to spend it with people around us. Have a fun game night, grab some drinks with friends after work, or just simply enjoy this time with family! I love how this card showed up, the first thing that came to my mind was Yule! The Winter Solstice is on Thursday for us in the Northern Hemisphere and what better card to see than the 4 of Wands to remind us that it’s a time for enjoyment and celebration. Winter is here and it’s time to get cozy! Stay in or go out, whatever you decide to do just be sure you enjoy yourself and your surroundings. This is a time to let loose and get lost in good conversation!

Death

We are greeted with one Major Arcana card this week, Death. Don’t fear this card it’s not what you think. I often feel that this is a very welcoming card… almost like getting a permission slip to get rid fo old junk. It’s about allowing things to end that are just not working out or have been sitting stale for far too long. Think of the Death card as a closet that needs to be cleaned out. Death is all about allowing things to come to an end so that we can make room for something new to begin, especially as we creep closer to the end of the year – 2018 is approaching very fast! You can always breathe new life into something later on when you’re ready or even restart something over from scratch (sometimes it’s much easier this way), but right now just cut those ties loose and don’t stress about it. Elsa sings it best “let it go… let it go, turn away and slam the door!”.

The Violet

I wanted to see what the overall guidance is for the week so I pulled an oracle card, The Violet. This card to me suggested right away “intuition”. I was really drawn into that eye at the top of the triangle and often eyes are associated with truth and visions. This tells me to trust your intuition this week and rest assured that the feelings you are sensing are correct. Find the truth in things rather than just relying on what other people are telling you. See for yourself!


What are you doing this week? I’m so excited to bring in the new year!

Hello, Forces Flora + Fauna Oracle

First off, did you notice the new blog theme?! It was time for a totally fresh new look and I’m loving the clean lines and negative space! I hope you enjoy this new look as much as I am! I’m eagerly trying to prepare for 2018 and want to make my blog a big focus once again.

Deck: Forces Flora + Fauna Oracle

It’s been a while since I got a new deck, last one was the Bonefire Tarot in November. I have several new decks on the way and the first to arrive was a deck I got from someone on a FB swap group. It’s the Forces Flora + Fauna Oracle by Colleen Hardy of the Hardy Tarot – which is another deck high on my wishlist! Oddly enough, most of the decks I have coming in the mail are oracle decks, only one is a tarot deck that I purchased. I guess I’ve been feeling the love for oracle decks lately!

When I first saw the Forces Flora + Fauna deck, my heart skipped a beat – it is stunning! The color palette of this deck is right up my alley and when someone voiced a swap in the group… it was a no brainer, I had to take them up on the trade! The Forces Flora + Fauna is a 54-card deck, there is a book coming out and Colleen has a downloadable booklet in her shop right now for $1 (as well as a printed version for a little more). I went ahead and purchased the PDF copy to have on hand.

Box + Cards + Extra Cards

One day I hope to add the Hardy Tarot to my collection, I’ve had it high on my wishlist for ages and I saw that it’s up for preorder again right now. I’m so bad at preordering decks since I tend to prefer the “instant gratification” rather than wait months and months for it to ship, but I may have to bite down and preorder it next month. Funny, one of the decks on the way to me soon was a preorder deck!

Deck: Forces Flora + Fauna Oracle

Back to the Forces Flora + Fauna! This deck measures out at 2.75″ x 4.75″, perfect size! The card stock is amazing and it’s fantastic quality! Shuffling this deck is very smooth and makes me happy, I can riffle my heart out with no issues. The card stock actually feels very similar to my own Seed Oracle!

This deck came to me “used” so I’m not entirely sure everything is included in what I received or not but it came with the box (signed under the flap), and 6 extra cards – title/artist card, about the deck, how to use the deck, and three keyword cards.

When I did the deck interview reading, I really dived hard into the symbols! I’ve never really read up much on some of them and it had me doing some homework to get a better understanding of the card and meaning on my own. I have a feeling I will be using this deck quite often!

On to the deck interview reading!


Deck Interview Reading

Ok, let’s see what this deck has to say and how it reads! Of course, I’m using my favorite deck interview spread by Little Red Tarot.

When I did this reading, I was really drawn to connecting with the cards on my own. Some of the keywords associated with each card in the “book” just didn’t fit for me. So diving into the symbology of each image really helped me connect!

1. TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF. WHAT IS YOUR MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTIC?
(The Toad) While going through this deck, I noticed there was a really good balance to it and this card is all about balance. The toad is an interesting little creature, they start out living in the water before the move to the land – they remind me a lot of the Greek goddess Persephone, the Queen of the Underworld. She too gets to dip her toes in two worlds – the underworld and the world above.

2. WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS AS A DECK?
(The Linden Tree) First thought on this card is that most trees in general are pretty strong and grounded. You can’t get any more grounded than a tree, am I right? This deck has strength in being stable and gentle, just like the wind blowing through its branches. I love the folklore behind the Linden tree, there are so many stories. This is a tree seen as sacred and I get the same feeling from this deck, a sacred tool.

3. WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITS AS A DECK?
(The Thistle) As a medical plant, it’s limits are often in its uses. Not all plants will treat every ailment, this is the same for this deck. It’s all about trial and error to see what this deck is comfortable reading! Thistle is often used for protection in many spells and crafts, this tells me that this deck may bit a bit guarded in getting all the info on the table. I’ve actually found this to be very true for me so far. At first I struggle with interpreting the cards since I get so transfixed with the keywords in the little guidebook, but once I let down my own walls and dive into each card, it becomes much more “chatty”.

4. WHAT ARE YOU HERE TO TECH ME?
(The Crow) Seeing this card show up in this position was very welcoming. A couple mornings ago, I decided to leave my front door open, which is something I never do since my dog barks at every tiny sound, and not even 5 minutes later I heard a loud raven call near my front door. I rarely see ravens where we live, just small crows and such, so it was really interesting and caught my attention. Then, the following morning, I heard the raven again! Still couldn’t see her, but I knew she was nearby. So when I saw this card show up, it reminded me of that raven I heard (even though the card is a crow). I take this card as a good omen in this reading, it really vibrates the meaning to watch for signs and messages. I feel this deck came to me for a reason, I didn’t even list it on my wishlist when I did the swap.

5. HOW CAN I BEST LEARN AND COLLABORATE WITH YOU?
(The Acorn) If I invest the time in working with this deck, a lot will come out of it. Much like seeds in general, you nurture a seed and there is a pretty good chance it will grow.! My husband and I have a small garden and we know a thing or two about growing – and how not to get something to grow, lol. It’s all about what effort I put in is what I’ll get in return. It’s funny, I was just talking to my husband the other night about this card and mentioned how I feel acorns can represent currency or a harvest. It’s like squirrel cash!

6. WHAT IS THE POTENTIAL OUTCOME OF OUR WORKING RELATIONSHIP?
(The Cave) I LOVE this card! Retreat, retreat! I’m being invited to dwell within this deck, touch the walls and every corner of the cards. Each card has a story, just like writings found in caves left by ancient civilizations. They are simple yet so deep, each illustration telling its tale. Enjoy listening to the echoes and vibrations that this deck is giving out.


What current tarot deck are you loving on right now? Let me know in the comments below!

Hello, December!

Hello! It’s been a few weeks… so, how about a little update on what’s going on and what I’ve been up to!

I got pretty busy mid November, all good reasons! One of those reasons being that I opened a little online shop! The shop is called Radical SHE and it had an awesome first shop update last week, I was thrilled!

What am I selling, you ask? I decided to take a leap and start selling my tarot bags again online. I felt that I needed to “rebrand” and start fresh but I also wanted to separate my shop from Tarot Seed while still holding my personality – Radical SHE was born. I am being led fully by SHE right now, I felt a strong push to get this shop going so I took a leap like the Fool and opened this shop. My first update sold out in less than a day, I was blown away! I’m so entirely grateful and I look forward to my next update (on Wednesday). Other than tarot bags, I will eventually carry spread cloths, crystal sets, moontime gifts, and other items surrounding the sacred feminine.

I have been getting pretty in touch with my own cycle and connection that I wanted to share some handmade gifts surrounding our womb space and moontime. I’m excited to work on these and share them with you all!

Another fun thing I started is a new zine called Radical SHE that will be available soon, I’m about halfway done with the content! This zine is inspired by my old “Filling the Void” posts about me exploring the Goddess and this zine is loaded with my own personal thoughts, practice, and path I’ve created with SHE. I’m very non-traditional in everything I do so this is something that you will see in this zine as well, it’s very eclectic. To give you an idea of my practice, my altar consists of the Venus of Willendorf, Wonder Woman, Pamela Colman Smith, everything Moon, and sprinkled in glitter.

I’m launching a second blog here soon inspired by my Radical SHE shop. Since my Tarot Seed blog surrounds mainly tarot, I want a place to blog about my path and practice, share things I love, and everything in between. I’ll be sharing that blog link once it’s ready and live!

Weekly Reading Nov 13 – 19

Does November feel like it’s going really fast? I feel like the last part of this year is just flying by! This week I’m using the Bonefire Tarot since I just can’t get enough of this deck – I love it! Let’s shuffle and take a look at the energies at play this week, shall we?

Alrighty then, what “fun” cards this week! ? After I pulled the three for the week, I was drawn to taking a peek at the bottom of the deck to see if there was any hidden advice or insight for us, I’m glad I did! the 2 of Coins was hiding and I’ll be talking about how this incorporates into our week!

Beginning of the week // 8 of Cups

We are kicking off the week working with the energy of the 8 of Cups. Any time this card shows up for me, it reminds me of embarking on a journey. Not a huge, life changing journey like the Fool, but more of a “lets see what else is out there” type of feel. We have a stack of 8 cups but one is missing, let’s go find it! What we are currently doing right now may not be working out the way we had hoped it would, so we may be called to move on and leave something behind. Something clearly isn’t working and we can feel it! We need to let it go and find what will work and put our energy towards that!

Middle of the week // 5 of Coins

After leaving the 8 of Cups, we are moving into a feeling of isolation or even a “I’ve been here before” type of energy. When I look at this card in the deck, I don’t get a the typical feeling like I do in say, the RWS – which is normally a feeling of scarcity or poverty… I get a more “solo” feel and a 5 of Cups vibe, it shows we may be feeling a bit sorry for ourselves… perhaps we’re even having buyers remorse! The girl in the card can easily go inside but it seems she has chosen to withdraw herself and stay outside in the snow – the door’s open, so it’s not like she is being locked out of the house or something, I get the feeling that this card suggests that we may be really hard on ourselves, don’t be! We all make mistakes… and mistakes can be fixed.

Before this card was the 8 of Cups and it shows someone moving on… now we find ourselves here, a place that I feel we may sense as very familiar. Trust me when I say that we are growing, despite feeling like we have set ourselves back. We may be in a place that feels very familiar, but we have changed and are not the same person we were when in this position before. Try to use this time to figure things out, journal, and even replay some past events in your mind to see if you may have missed something. There is a lesson hidden in this card for you to figure out!

End of the week // The Tower

Just like that, the Tower makes an appearance to end our week. After some much needed transitions and then feeling like we’ve hit a wall, we are greeted with the Tower. I like to think of the Tower this week as cleaning up some things that we really don’t want to face. It’s a huge broom coming for us and cleaning shit up! It may not be fun, it may be a bit messy, but it will be necessary and you will thank it later. No one really loves to see the Tower show up, especially when it’s on a weekend, right?! Hold on tight and enjoy the ride!

Going with the 2 of Coins that was on the bottom of the deck, this will be our crutch this week – our medicine, our advice to keep us on our feet so that we don’t get swept up when the Tower comes to town! This card urges us to keep in check with how we balance out our life this week. It could be a juggle that is difficult but it’s something we can all handle, despite you having some doubt. We can dwell on any bumps we feel this week or we can learn from them! Keep your priorities in check and don’t weigh yourself down too much in one area of your life – like too much work or too much play. Take on only what you can chew and spit out the rest!

Day 13: Something I should appreciate (more)

Day 13 – Something I should appreciate (more)

The Knight of Coins was pulled for this prompt with the Bonefire Tarot and the second I saw the card, I nodded in agreement. One thing I always (usually) hate about myself is something I should truly appreciate more… my dedication and focus that I put forth in what ever I do. I’m an “all or nothing” type of person. If I’m not fully into what I’m doing and can’t do it how I want it done, I simple don’t do it.

I agree with this card 100%! The Knight of Coins has always been a very reliable energy to me. If I were to hire any of the knights from the court cards, I would hire the Knight of Coins. They are reliable and trustworthy in getting something completed while the other Knights have their head in the clouds or are too eager to do things their own way. This is a card of focus, attention to detail (much like the 8 of Coins), and trust in getting the job done correctly.

Any time I start a project, I want it done right and I want my whole heart in it. Although, I suck at keeping blog series going… I’m working on that one lol! I will say, I’m on day 13 of this challenge and I’ve posted it on my blog every day, on time! Hopefully doing this “series” will show that I can do something if I truly want to!

Another thing about this card and is something I can appreciate within myself is that I am always curious and always eager to learn. There are days where I’m up till midnight working on some new graphics because they “just can’t wait” and need to be completed while the idea is still fresh in mind. I know if I put it off, the idea will change and the inspiration will be lost.
