Cards of the Week

Cards of the Week for August 8th to the 14th:  Reversed Hanged Man, Sylvia Plath, and Familiar.

Really, the only reason I wanted the Literary Witches deck was for the Sylvia Plath card.  The Bell Jar is my all time favorite book.

Anyway, this week we are taking action and kicking ass.  Too much out there is this toxic belief that anything that is not POSITIVE is terrible.  The whole “Good vibes only!” clique is not helpful.

The Darkness is our friend that will help us.  What scares you?  What makes you run away?  What goes bump in the night, bump it back.

We are digging deep this week. 

Cards of the Day

Cards of the Day:  The Tower, Praying Mantis, and Oath.

Praying Mantises are a thing with me.  I found 4 in my flower bed Monday.  I believe they are watching over me and mine as we turn into Autumn.

Today, know you are loved and watched over, even as the shit is hitting everything and going up and down in flames.

We can make it till Friday. 

Ghoulish Garb’s Terror Tarot

Last October, my good friend, @Stitchedfox, gifted me Ghoulish Garb’s Terror Tarot. 

 Well, I finally got around to the deck.  And with @owlandbonestarot Interview Spread, away we go!

 Where does your wisdom lie?  Judgment.  Only a major’s deck, this tracks.  I feel that I will treat this deck as more of an oracle than a tarot.  I have had problems trying to read two tarot decks simultaneously. 

 What is your inner strength?  Temperance.  A deck of balance, a deck that will mellow me out.  I can use that about now. 

 What might you not see?  Reversed Hierophant.  While being mellow and balanced, this deck might not try me with readings.  I like this idea and am not digging it at the same time.  I like a deck that challenges me and don’t want this deck to be a blah deck.

What makes you soar?  Justice.  Inner strength of Temperance and soaring Justice.  Makes me optimistic!

 Where do you feel grounded?  Reversed Tower.  With the meaning of personal/self-reflecting, this might be a good deck for some deep questions.

Where will you dig in?  Reversed Moon.  Moody.  You are a deck to go to with moody questions.

 Who are you at your bare bones?  Reversed Sun.  Cut through the bullshit and give me the raw truth.

 Overall, any reading with this deck will give me the Fool, but I think that will work.

The vibes I get is that this is a deck for moody self-reflecting that will give me an honest look at things.  Let me bring my problems, and you will set me on the right path, à la the Fool.
