What is Mercury retrograde?

Today we’re going to detour a little away from the tarot cards and talk about planets, astrology and the Mercury retrograde.

This is how I understand things:

Tarot Tuesday – The World, The King of Swords in reverse, and some crystal talk

I finally organized my tarot table in my room aka sanctuary and I am so very happy to have a designated space to sit and mediate, read tarot cards, or just be pensive and contemplative.

Check it out!

Tarot Tuesday (on Wednesday*): strange synchronicities, the Empress and the number 3

*snowstorm, 4 hours of shoveling, appointments and other delays… 😯

Recently I listened to three tarot readers on YouTube on the same day. I typically do this while designing beaded jewelry, but I keep a notepad handy to take notes when they remark on something that increases my knowledge on tarot cards and their interpretations.

Two of the readers were addressing the zodiac sign of Libra (me), and one of them was addressing all air signs (Libra, Aquarius and Gemini). All of them were reading for the same upcoming week.

One of them had a spread of cards already laid out, the other two shuffled and laid out their cards while online.

Here is where it got interesting:

Tarot Tuesday: the Fool

The Fool is the first card in the tarot deck, marked by the number zero. I have two decks, the classic Rider-Waite Tarot* and the Shadowscapes Tarot*, the second which was gifted to me by my beautiful friend Gabrielle.

The Fool is, for all intents and purposes, a carefree, unencumbered individual beginning his journey through the Major Arcana.

Tarot Tuesday – Two of Pentacles

Over the holidays I often shuffled and played with my tarot cards just for fun. Some of the family is interested, and we look at the cards in a low-key sort of way by analyzing the images and symbolism and looking at how they connect to our personal circumstances.

One day, the Two of Pentacles showed up twice. I took that as significant, except I didn’t realize at the time how significant it was.

YouTube sound checks – can you hear me?

I loaded a whole bunch of very short clips in the past two days to my Tarot Snippet playlist on my YouTube channel. Today’s is just over a minute long.

The clips with my daughter Sonja in it are quite short too… anyway, if you watch them, might adjust the sound, she makes some irritating funny noises in some of them… (lol)

A busy day, a question and a link

I know today was Tarot Tuesday. I wrote a post and didn’t finish it and found out accidentally that it was published accidentally. It was not ready to be published. I don’t know what happened. I did see Tucker at one point who lunges at me whenever he feels overjoyed to see me, so it’s probably his fault. 😀

Anyway, when I found out I deleted the post. It wasn’t finished anyway. Sorry not sorry.

Hi, I’m Writer of Words, and I’m the Queen of deleting stuff. 😛

Tarot Tuesday – Empress, Three of Wands, Judgement

I’ve been feeling a bit stuck (and very busy). All my balls in the air are causing me involuntary paralysis, so I procrastinate. Is it fear? Is it something else?

My tarot cards were sending vibes toward me, so I shuffled and pulled some. Here’s what happened:
