  1. Ahh, I imagine this is where the creator of the Tarot of Trees draws her inspiration! Thanks for that
  2. I agree. A big part of the draw of working with different decks for me is seeing things through the eyes of the creator's vision. I think it's a bit dismissive to refer to these decisions as impulses. I think in many cases they are very well thought out, and indeed very much tarot. Some of the decks named above, like the Prisma Visions and Tarot of Trees, definitely read as tarot and not as oracle, at least in my opinion. They just take a different perspective on certain aspects.
  3. A day to celebrate indeed!!! Thank you to all who have made this forum the wonderful community it is, and especially to @Little Fang for creating this beautiful home for us Amazing surprise about the interviews!! Excited to read them!
  4. I know just what you mean, @Katie! Doing the reading over the 12 days really makes the two Solstice times feel special
  5. No worries! I know you had major time constraints and I'm glad you still decided to join I'm still behind on posting my last couple of cards!
  6. I'm so glad you were able to finish despite the unforeseen circumstances, @Swift Hope things are settling for you now.
  7. I was caught up on everyone's readings for the first part, but have fallen behind and am now traveling so I will be slowly catching up. I love reading about everyone's journeys through the sacred days...and your approach to reading is so beautiful, @Mi-Shell! There is no verbal diarrhea there, just the true expression of heart and soul Please continue to share and make your posts as LONG as you want!!
  8. I did send a follow-up email to Eddison to ask why they halted plans for the reprint and whether it might go ahead in the future...and they never responded unfortunately. If there were legal issues involved perhaps they're not able to discuss it. If you decide to reach out to them and hear anything, please let us know. I'm still bummed about this as well
  9. Hi Barleywine! Nice to see you
  10. Now that is fascinating, @Rose Lalonde! So each suit is a journey through the seasons. But each starting in a different season at the beginning and moving through the suit. That's a lot to think about! It makes sense though. Do you ever work with decks that relate a single season to each suit, like some of the ones mentioned above, and if so does that affect your approach when working with it?
  11. Is anyone here familiar with this deck? I just stumbled across it and I have to say I've kind of fallen in love with it. According to the Etsy site: "Russian children are familiar with drawings for fairy tales by Ivan Bilibin from 1899. Several generations of people grew up on these colorful pictures and images. In the deck presented paintings to well-known folk tales, epics and works of A. S. Pushkin. Ivan Yakovlevich Bilibin (1876-1942) was a Russian painter, book illustrator and theatrical designer, a member of the Association “World of art". Bilibin’s works are full of love to Russia, its culture and fairy tales." It looks like this is a book with the illustrations. Below are some of the card images from Etsy. ETA I suppose the deck is somewhat similar in style to the John Bauer decks and the Warwick Oracle.
  12. @LoveLightPeace, I LOVE hearing about your garden and seeing pictures! I mostly use the mugwort smudge when I'm wanting to draw out magical before/during a ritual and I think it's perfect for that. (Related- I have a TON of pineapple sage, and I just happened upon the idea of making pineapple sage smudge sticks! I think I'm going to try it!) I haven't taken tried mugwort tea even though I'm interested in its shamanic properties. I've heard it's very bitter!! I actually drink a lot of catnip tea (it's good for both anxiety and digestion, both of which I need help with, and it's become one of my closest plant allies) which can be quite bitter, but I think mugwort is probably much more bitter. I've gotten used to the taste of catnip to the point where I now enjoy it...but not sure how I'd do with the mugwort! I will have to try it sometime. Your description and pictures of the rue are making me think I should have bought some this year when I had a chance at a local plant sale! But there's always next year The thing I'm most excited about in our garden right now is we are getting sunflowers!! Here is our very first sunflower, which opened earlier this week: \\ And here is our second, which opened on Thursday: Also, I think these purple basil flowers are so beautiful!!! We harvested a bunch of pineapple sage this evening, and like I said I think I'm going to try making a smudge bundle with it- we have tons of it! Harvested some lettuce and Swiss chard as well PLEASE keep sharing your garden updates and pics, @LoveLightPeace!
  13. Thanks @McFaire! Really interesting to see how many different ways there are of thinking about this and the reasons behind them. Thanks also for the Wheel of the Year layouts!
  14. @Mi-Shell, what you wrote is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing If you don't mind, I would love to incorporate your prayer into my solo Solstice celebration and ritual next year
