    A Tea Thread

    That is fascinating. Generally, I drink more tea at work and coffee at home. So since I’ve have been off the ibric has taken quite a hit. Currently I am using these blends. The Lady Grey Orangery and Rose Garden are my present favourites. They are nothing terribly fancy, but are nice.

    78 Weeks of Tarot: Ace of Cups

    Yes - it's just the elements that are switched, the Suits themselves are standard. One of the AT threads was what led me to Poinsot, which IS affordable but only contains little bits of Picard. Andy's never mentioned Picard that I remember. He could have read him at some point. _R_ might be my best bet here. Thanks!

    78 Weeks of Tarot: Ace of Cups

    Maybe _R_ or Andy? His book on the Tarot seems rare and expensive (it's not a big book too apparently), and curiously isn't in free access online even if it is old. You probably know the link at the end on Aeclectic but it's the only excerpts I found. The excerpts on the Minors (someone offered a translation of the text in the same thread) don't exactly explain "why" but we can deduce that this comes from the Astrology that he practiced. For the meanings of the Cups and of the Swords I don't have the impression that this changes really something: "La qualité fournit le côté conc

    Are spreads optional?

    Absolutely. For some reason we seem to differentiate between lines and carrés and crosses and stars. However a spread of cards is just that: cards spread. I choose the spread that is going to give me the information I want to know. The 3 x 3/en carré is a good example. For most readings, you can simply read it as 8 trios, without any positional context (past, influences, &c). But if someone is concerned with an existing situation then the past can be necessary and helpful. We can sometimes read columns as what helps and where to forebear à la dexter and sinister, too. It’s the

    Amazonite turned yellowish

    I'll keep that in mind about moisture in the future. Restringing is a good idea, I I'll do that. There's too many beads affected to take them all out, but I'll distribute them evenly so when I wear it, one side won't be noticeably more yellow than the other.

    Amazonite turned yellowish

    I had the feeling it's irreversible, but I had to try anyway. I'd rather have it yellow than coating it with nail polish. I think I'll re-bead it, distribute the yellow beads so they're not clumped together on one side only. Thanks for the little background info on the gems. I've been loving and wearing gemstone jewellery for over a decade and never had anything like this happen

    78 Weeks of Tarot: Ace of Cups

    Mermaid Tarot (by Leeza Robertson, Julie Dillon, Llewellyn 2019) Ace of Cups Description: Golden (or brass) chalice is filled to the brim with the miracle of life. The cup has been claimed by someone as its home and we can see living slimy tentacles coming out of it and harvesting sea water for occasionally passing prey. Colorful fishes and strong green kelp surround the cup. Many creatures are living their lives in this card – swimming, growing, multiplying, eating, and avoiding being eaten. Book meaning: Are you using your gift to its fullest potential? Th

    78 Weeks of Tarot: Ace of Cups

    I need to find Picard's reasoning behind this. Or maybe just ask one of our French speaking members who might be familiar with his writings... It's probably something along those lines. Swords are water in this one, the Knight is literally swimming his horse across a river...he'd best stay on or that armor will sink him!

    Amazonite turned yellowish

    I agree that if it's from sunlight, it's not something that can be cleaned away. I don't know amazonite well, but it probably got too dry. Some stones need a little ambient moisture, that's why you sometimes see a glass of water in a display case of jade. Or it could be from heat or continued exposure strong light itself. If not too many beads are discolored, you might consider getting them restrung without the yellow ones. You'd have to get that done eventually anyway - I never met a string that didn't wear out!

    What's The Postman Bringing?

    I will! It was a bit of an impulse buy for me after seeing some pics of it on Instagram, although I first became aware of it a couple of months ago and was intrigued. I'm a fan of the gothic aesthetic but had never managed to find a deck along those lines that really called me, but I when I saw this deck I thought maybe it could be that one for me that I've been missing! On my first look-through my first thought was, this deck is WEIRD, but in a good way! The art makes me think of a cross between the old Aeon Flux animated show (not sure how many people are familiar with that...it was on MTV i

    Amazonite turned yellowish

    Sorry to hear about your necklace, cookie There is not a way to change the color back of which I am aware. Many stones can be dyed or painted with nail polish for desired effect, but these are pretty abrasive processes. There are many stones that change color due to sunlight or other exposure—just a matter of the color fading, a chemical change. I don’t see why negative energy would be at play here. Stones like opal can actually crack if exposed to high temperatures, and amber has the capacity to melt in high temperatures. Some stones be finicky like that. For what it’

    78 Weeks of Tarot: Ace of Cups

    Ace of Cups Deck: Forest of Enchantment Name of the card: Ace of Visions Description: There’s a swan swimming in a pond, looking at the viewer. On the surface of the water there’s a reflection of the swan but in that reflection she is wearing silver crown and a pendant. The reflection and especially the crown is glimmering. Behind the swan there are recfections of flowers (irises according to the book) in the water. On the upper part and the lower part of the card there’s long grass surrounding the water. On the lower part there are also small white flowers in th

    78 Weeks of Tarot: Ace of Cups

    It’s definitely a great deck and the guidebook is amazing. She writes with such clarity about the deeper philosophy. I’m finding your posts interesting too as I have that deck but always found the images too busy! You’re making them make more sense. I do love seeing all the different decks that people are using. There is such richness in comparing them all. @katrinka interesting that the Leng deck uses Air for Cups. I’ve tended to go for that when I read with TdM decks as the Cups seem most like the Sanguine personality which feels more ‘airy’ to me.

    78 Weeks of Tarot: Ace of Cups

    Now we have a few posts up..... some thoughts.... @katrinka... Cups representing air? What a merry time of misrule this is! That would take a little getting used to. I like the use of the 'butterfly corner' aspect influence in a reading. @Contrascarpe... I love simple cards. They are always harder to talk about, but they seem to speak so much louder than more cluttered cards - with imagery vying for attention. It gives the Ace the purity it deserves. I especially enjoyed what I assumed to be a reference to the heart suit, and the interplay between the water and the barren environment. @F

    Great I'll gave a look at the gypsy card thread This forum is so big it takes a while to discover every corner.

    Historic Tarot spreads

    You decide on a significator for what you're asking about (job, relationship, person, etc.) Leave it in the deck, shuffle and cut. Then just fan the cards out, locate the significator, and read it with the cards on either side of it (usually the two before and two after, but you can do more or fewer cards.) You can do this laying the cards on the table, too. But it's really convenient to just fan the deck when there's no table handy.

    Amazonite turned yellowish

    Hello! Sorry if this was discussed before, I did a quick search and couldn't find anything about it. I made the novice mistake of storing my beautiful amazonite beaded necklace and bracelet in a place where morning sunlight hit it most days this summer. I just noticed that some of the beads turned a yellowish green colour. Is there any way I can undo this? It's such a gorgeous necklace, but those few yellow beads really stand out. I know crystals can change colour due to absorbing negative energy, but I doubt that's the case with me. I learned m
