31/31 - 31 Days of Tarot blog - Do you practice any other forms of divination? If so, what is it, and do you use them alongside the Tarot as to gain more information and insight or as something separate entirely?

Bilde
Hello moon children and merry meet,

I noticed when I wrote this blog post that I fucked up the questions with the dates... I am leave like it is and because it is too much work to change so late in the year :)

I do other forms for divinations like meditations, I use runes, I use oracle, I use pendeleums and I use crystals.

I like to meditate along with a tarot card and I use my Osho Tarot for that, I have startet my rune journey few months ago and I finds it very interesting, I have used oracle cards for nearly five years by now, I use penduleum every once and a while. I have just stared to use crystals











The last and final question of December 2016 :)


As always....Take what speaks to you and leave the rest:)

Pull some cards for January 2017 for yourself and share. 1 Energy in January. 2 Challenge in January. 3. Opportunity in January.

It istime to take a step back, take a time out and charge up the batteries. It may you feel this is what you need or maybe you have been told th…

30/31 - The 31 Days of Tarot Blog - Do you have a Tarot mentor? Who are they (in relation to you) and how do they inspire you?

Bilde
Hello Star Children,

How are you all doing? I hope you are doing well? Are you ready for go into to the New Year? Out with the old and used and in with the new and unused.

The question of the day is: Do you have a mentor? And how do they inspire you.

The short answer to question is that I don't have a mentor. I wish I had mentor so I can bounce my ideas to and I can get a hint if I am way off or spot on. I have a friends who is starting to reading tarot and this is very good training and we help each other. On the other hand I wish I had a more seasoned tarot reading to give me advice.
I have been doing this for many years and I still feel like a newbie.

But I spend a lot of time on the internet and YouTube and watch a lot of tarot videos and it give me tips and pointers. I get ideas from other tarot readers like tarotbyarwen, ethony, tarotbyania and Donnaleigh, just to name a few.

28/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - Do you have a special time and/or place that you use your Tarot? If so, do you reserve the deck specifically for that purpose?

Hello Star Children an merry meet

Do you have a special time and/or place that you use your Tarot? If so, do you reserve the deck specifically for that purpose?

I need to this when I'm home alone because I need it to be quite in the house and I burn inscent. Sadly we don't have big enough appartment for me to to have my special space to do tarot. I guess we are moving within a year so I am holding fingers crossed that I will have my tarot/craft room :)

I do not have special decks for special times because I work with all of my decks from time to time.
Well, I have Halloween tarot that I use late September till early November.

I have a wish I will make happend in 2017 and that I will have a tarot deck for each Sabbath :)





Blessed be and merry see,

Card of the year for 2017

Bilde
hello you all and merry meet :)

As we are going into a new year and I like to find out what will be my card for 2017 :)
For this you use only the major arcana

For calculating this you need your birthday and the year you want to find your card

For this example we are using my Birthday :)

My Birthday is 31.12, so we add these numbers 31+12=43
Then you add the year 43+2017=2060
At the end you sum up these digits 2+0+6+0=8
So my card of the year in 2017 is Strength

There are couple thing would be great to have in mind when you do this.
First the Fool has no numbers so he get 22
Second, if you a number 23 or above you will need to sum up the digits once again :)


I don't know what deck this card is from, if you know let me know so I can credit the artist and author

Blessed be and merry see,

26 and 27/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - What was the most dramatic/meaningful reading you ever did? (Not necessarily the most accurate.) No real names and trust your intuition with sharing certain information please.

Bilde
Hello Sun babies and merry meet,

The question of the day is  What was the most dramatic/meaningful reading you ever did? (Not necessarily the most accurate.) No real names and trust your intuition with sharing certain information please.

And tomorrows question is: Have you ever regretted a particular reading, either for yourself or another?
I decided to answer these two together since it is goes together hand in hand

 I was not sure if I wanted to write todays blog, since I have been talkning about this before I thought what a heck... I guess this post will be the last time I talk about it.

In May/June 2002 I put down some cards for myself and I don't remember what spread I did, but I have a feeling I used the Gipsy spread.
The Gypsy Spread is also called the 6 months spread and this spread has 3x7 card spread = 21 cards.

One of the rows show the close future (2-3 months) and one of the cards was death. The death cards do not means a physischal death of a human being, but it means…

25/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - How accurate do you believe your readings are (or, do they accurately convey messages from spirits/deity)?

Bilde
Hello winter pups and merry meet,

How are you doing in this busy day and I hope you are doing great... Please relax and allow youself a breake so you can breathe.. Merry Christmas /happy Yule :)

So, The question of the day is how accurate is the tarot reading?

When I read for good friends and family it is always spot on.. more or less. A reason for that can be because I know these people and I often knows about their projects... Is it because I know them it is spot on or is it because the right cards comes up? Since you know the people you are reading for you can always link it something in their life. Sadly I easily get a bit confused when I read for someone  I know.

If I reading for someone I don't know or know that well, it is a bit better because I read the cards and I have to go with the cards and my intuitive voice within me.
I believe that there is no readings that is 100% all the time.

24/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - What question do you most often ask the deck (or, ask on behalf of another)?

Hello sun kittens and merry meet,

How are you doing in this busy day and I hope you are doing great... Please relax and allow youself a breake so you can breathe.. Merry Christmas /happy Yule :)

The Question of the day is What question do you most often ask the deck (or, ask on behalf of another)?

The questions I get the most is those questions I don't like very much. will I get married, when will I get rich, will I get rich and famous, will my ex come bac to me and so on..

When I get these question I try to find out why they want to know these thing, like a background check if you like, I will talk to the client and ask him/her if she are willing to modify their question. Usually It is not a problem because they don't know how to ask a tarot reader...

Rarely I get those who say no, this is the question... so I give you one time chance to dazzle me - give me what you got. They will have a push over energy.. When I experience those people I respectfully decline to give them a r…

23/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - Do you charge money (or other ways of compensation) for your readings/services?

Hello beautiful souls and merry meet

How are you and I hope you are doing well. I also want to with you a wonderful winter solstice.. YAY.. The sun is turning and days becomes longer and the weather will be warmer, nature will once again bloom and come to life :) Wonderful times :) Happy Yule/Christmas to everyone :)

Today is the question:  Do you charge money (or other ways of compensation) for your readings/services?

It depends who is asking and if I am offering a reading.

If I offer readings to close family and friends I don't charge money because I see it as training
If there are people who discover that I am a tarot reader and who "demand" a reading I will charge them.

I will sometimes come to a agreement of compensation, like a did nearly a year ago. I have a wonderful neighbour who also is a healer, So, we agreed that I would give her a reading and she would do some healing work on me :) That worked out fine :) I she told me that my reading was spot on...

Hello moon puppies and merry meet,

How are you and I hope you are doing well. I also want to with you a wonderful winter solstice.. YAY.. The sun is turning and days becomes longer and the weather will be warmer, nature will once again bloom and come to life :) Wonderful times :) Happy Yule to everyone :)


Question of the day is  How do you feel when you do readings?

First of all I do have butterflies in my stomach, I am excited and a hint of nervous. I don't how this reading goes before I see the cards.

But when I get started with the readings I get calm with a hint of butterflies :) When  I turn over the cards I pretty much know how the reading will go.

 In the end I get happy I can help those who need it. It does so much for the clients that they get answers to their questions :) If feel so good to able to help people.

Year ahead 2017 - Challenge

Bilde
Hello you all and merry meet,

I wanted to join in onPatrick's (in the78cards) challenge.
You lay out 12 cards which is representing 12 month in the year and you place 13th card in the center and that will be the main energy throughout of 2017.
The idea behind this is that you are working with the first card in the first month along with the center card. The second card with the center card on the second month... and so on, you get the idea.
 From what I gather from this, this is all about working, exploring, find a deeper meaning and so on.

This challenge is originally is over at Instagram at #yearahdead2017, but it is also up to you how open you want to be or how private you want to be. If you want to just look at the photos and like the photo, but participate private in you own journal.. why not? It is is totally up to you :)

Some starts at January and their wheel is from January to December while others take it from their Birthday and let it go till next Birthday. It is up to yo…

How are you and I hope you are doing well. I also want to with you a wonderful winter solstice.. YAY.. The sun is turning and days becomes longer and the weather will be warmer, nature will once again bloom and come to life :) Wonderful times :) Happy Yule to everyone :)

The question of the day is Do you read for yourself and/or for others? Why or why not?

I do read for myself of cours, not every day, but very often, I love to read for my self.. I did a post on this why I do it and if for answer on special issues, learning new things about myself, things I didn't thought of and such.

I want to read tarot as a job, although I have set up my shop I haven't been on it and marketing so much yet because I don't feel it is not the right time yet.. I have an Etsy shop and you can book a reading from me right here from my blog. All you have to do is to go to "book a reading" and follow the steps. I will do some more changes on that par…

20/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - Do you feel a “connection” to your cards?

Bilde
Hello Snow Angels and merry meet,

How are you all doing and I hope you are doing great in this time of the holiday. I want to wish you Happy Yule celebrations. I hope you have a peaceful time :)

This question is Do you feel a “connection” to your cards?

Yes, I do have connection with my tarot decks and I have a different relationship with all of my decks. Some of them need more attention than others.

When I get a deck I look on every single card, the I run every card through scent and cover the cards in a tarot bag. I put them away till I feel like working with them. Sometime it can go hours, days or couple of monts. I do have a deck I got January this year, but I haven't felt the urge to play with them and it is The dark Grimoire Tarot deck.


If I don't use within 2017, I will sell it, trade it or giving it away. I don't to have decks that don't use. I knew when I bought it that was a risky buy.. I thought it would to buy it and sell it again instead of always wonderin…

19/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - Do you do readings using reversals? Why or why not?

Bilde
Hello moon pups and merry meet,

How are you all doing in these days? I hope you are doing great :)

This question is: Do you do readings using reversals? Why or why not?

The very short answer to this question is that...Yes, I do read reversals.

Why? well, this is how taught myself to read tarot and I also believe that it is a reason for a card is coming upside down.. it is not always a bad thing.

This post can be connected to the blog post I did about major/minor arcana. I don't feel I get the whole story or all the answers if I read as one way. There's nothing wrong to read this way or the other way. You have to read it like is right for you.

We are now on the 8th question in the pagan Challenge and do I have a matron/patron?

This will be a very short blog post :

The very short answer is: No, I do not have matron/patron, but if I should look into this it would be natrual to me to look into norse mythology since I am Norwegian/Scandinavian.
For now the answer is no :)

18/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - Do you ever use the Major Arcana without the Minor Arcana or vise verse? Do you read with Major Arcana only decks?

Bilde
Hello Snow flakes and merry meet,

How are you all doing and I hope you are doing great and allowing yourself to take a breake and breathe

The question of the day is:  Do you ever use the Major Arcana without the Minor Arcana or vise verse? Do you read with Major Arcana only decks?

No, I don't use just the major arcana or just the minor arcana because it doesn't roll with me. I need both arcanas to get the full picure and I don't feel that I don't see all the answers only in of the arcanas.

I don't own a of the has only one arcana, but I do own "a dog's tarot" and it has 30 cards..20 of the majors and ten of the minor. I was so disappointed when I got it because I thought it was a full blown 78 cards tarot deck. I was thinking of making my own dog tarot :)

The only time I use the Major Arcana is when I calculate the card of the year (I will a blogpost on this closer to the New Year).

17/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - How much emphasis do you put on the text-book meanings for cards, and how much stress do you place on the “feeling” you get from cards through their artwork/symbolism/etc. (aka reading intuitively)? Do you do both, or one or the other?

Bilde
Hello rain drops and merry meet,

How are you all doing today and I hope you are doing all right,

The question of the day is How much emphasis do you put on the text-book meanings for cards, and how much stress do you place on the “feeling” you get from cards through their artwork/symbolism/etc. (aka reading intuitively)? Do you do both, or one or the other?

I must say that I do both...When I get a tarot deck I read through the little white book that come along the deck and I write down the cards meaning in my notebook.. Just key words. I have noticed the meaning of the cards can be different from deck to deck, so if I could give you an advice... Don't discard the white book right away.. read through it and then follow your intuition. 

Afterwards I read through the book. I sit down with each cards and study them.. what kind of symbols are there in the card? what kind of story do the card tells me, what kind of a vibe do I get and so on + I look at the art work, colours.

Then I use…

What can you use tarot for?

Bilde
Hello honey pops and merry meet :)

 I have gotten this question a few times now and that is: What do you use tarot cards for?
There are a lot ways you can use tarot for, I just wanted to make a blog post on it :)

You can use it as a tool for personal exploration/self knowledge
-If you are struggle with an issue you can lie down some cards and it can show you what a logical/good step to do next.

You can use it in rituals
- If you have a curtain routine/ritual you do in the morning. For instance you get up, shower/bath, quiet time with a cup of tea or coffee before the bunch is up. You can draw a few cards, burn som incense...enjoy this quiet time and alone time. 

You can use it for underdstand the past, now and the future
-Is there some things that is repeating in your life? I believe that everything happends for a reason even those event of life that is unfair..even you want to scream to the world:" suck on a rotten egg, world"
Lie down three cards, you will get your answer …

15 and 16/31 - The 31 Days of Tarot Blog - Why do you usually use the Tarot (self-reflection, guidance, advice, recreation, communing with spirits/dead, communication with deity, other)?

Bilde
Hello Tarot Tribe and merry meet,

How are you doing in these hectic Christmas times? I hope you are doing well and allow youself a little break.. make yoursaelf a cup of cocoa or tea/coffee and breathe.. it doesn't have to be perfect because in times like these the unperfect is still perfect.

So, over to the question and it is: How and why do you usually use the Tarot (self-reflection, guidance, advice, recreation, communing with spirits/dead, communication with deity, other)?



The reason why I use the tarot is to get answers on a special issue at the moment. 
I use tarot to self-reflect, to get guidence and advice on what next logical step would be.
I do not communicate with spirits in that sense that I don't know how to do that.. I don't communicate with the dead because since they have past over I will leave them alone and let them rest. They have done their part so they deserve to be left alone, but if they want to have contact with me they know where to find me …

14/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - What card confused the heck out of you when it shows up? Why do you think this is?

Bilde
hello pop tarts and merry meet

Today's question is What card confused the heck out of you when it shows up? Why do you think this is?

My biggest confusing cards in the tarot and it is the court cards..
If the king comes up can it mean that it is about a man figure in your life or that you/someone in your life that have the king attributes or does it mean you need to have focus/Management
I have always been confused over the court cards and when it actually mean a person or when it doen mean other stuff.

The pages can mean messages, the knigts can mean travel/movement, the queens can mean creation and the kings mean focus/management

Like in every other spread you must look at the other cards to understand the meaning, but I still think it is confusing.

Pagan challenge week 7 - How do you view sacred text/mythology

Bilde
Hello little faeries and merry meet :)

How are you doing and I hopee you are doing great. I also hope you have the chance to calm down and breathe in this time of Christmas/Yule.

This week question is how do I view sacred text/mythology... 
I had a hard time to answer this question and I was so close to not do this blog post, but I will do my best.

I see sacred text as information and I looking at it and maybe I can use this in my practice as a pagan..
At the moment I do read the bible, but as a non-Christian I read it with a open mind and I read it as a story.

I do have plans to read the Torah and maybe even the Koran... if I can find a Norwegian copy, if not at least an English copy.

When it comes to mythology I see it the same way as holy books, as information, I read it with a open mind and as a story.

When it comes to me and my book of shadows, BoS artbook or any book I use in my practice is not sacred before I say it is.

Today's question is what is my current tarot spread that I am using.
The today's question and tomorrow is so similar so I decided I would anwer them in one post :) 

I am trying to modify the first half of the The Celctic Cross and I am not quite done with it.. some trying and errors still... like it should be :)

I don't know if there is a spread like this, but I got the idea from the tv-Show "Witches from East End" when I saw one of the character did this spread.I thought it looked interesting.

I don't know other tarot readers do this as well, but I have a tendency to collect tarot spreads. Oooohhh, that look interesting... and in my bok it goes:) If I see a tarot spread on YouTube, internet or pinterest

Bilde
Hello snow bunnies and merry meet,

How are you doing? I hope you aredoing great in these hectic prep times :)

So, today's question is what card I pulled up the most in 2016.

I haven't had a spesific card pulled when I had read for others, but when I have giving myself readings it has been 8 of cups.
What the card say it is that you have to give up something that you strongly believed in.
This card have at least two sides and that is you must give up on something/someone before you can go and achieve bigger and better things, I don't see it as someone's fault, it just is. It can be that the friendship/relationship has come to an end and it can be one part has invested more feelings/energy than the other part. It is about: " hey, it was fun while it lasted, but this doesn't work anymore".

Hello sun kittens,

How are you all doing? I hope you are doing great.

Today's question is: What is the card that you don’t want to see pop up in a Tarot Reading? Why?
For this I used Sharman-Caselli tarot deck and I see this in two ways.. What I end up with depend of course the the other cards that are around.

In this cards you might se it to ways. In one way you are fighting your battle and whatever you do and however you protect yourself, you get a lot of shit in return and you are attacked from a lot of places.


In the other way you can see this as you are battling your "war" and you are not sure where you are attacked from so you shoots, but you are not looking where to aim. You shoot out a lot of stuff and hope for the best it sticks to someone or somewhere.

Hello snow faeries and merry meet,

How are you doing and  I hope you are doing great

My first tarot reading I did for myself and this was 15-18 years ago and it was a complete crash and burn lesson.

Here I am as a beginner with the tarot and my tarot book looking at the tarot spread in the back of the book.. I had a hard time with the tarot deck, felt I couldn't read the cards... and I was forcing myself and forcing the cards to work together...

Being the Capricorn that I am and ambition is a Capricorn's middle name, I thought 6 months spread is a great start. I have seen the same spread other places called the gypsy spread.
It is 7x3 cards spread = 21 cards. Let me say to this, to do this as a starter spread was a failure from the gekko.

I wish I had kept a tarot journal from that time, but I didn't thought that would be so important to keep one.
I gave up after awhile and put the cards away *kicking my own butt*
Thankfully I took to my senses few years back and began my …

Today's question is: What would you say is your favorite Tarot Card right now (cause these things change) and why? Is it the artwork, the meaning or both?
Right now I love the Hermit card,

I have picked three different Hermit cards



The Hermit from Book of Shadows: So below
In this card you see a woman who take some time off with a bath. Every once and a while we need to take a time off from the world. And there are times we must be told to take time off. We all need charge out batteries and prioritze ourself.. it is not selfish to do so becauseif we don't have alone time or datenight with yourself you may "crash and burn" and my experience of life: No one will thank you when you are down and hurt. We must get away from the "good girl" or "good boy" impression. It din't serve us in the long run.

7/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - What were the first three Tarot Spreads that you learnt.

Bilde
Hello and merry meet,

How are you doing? I hope you are doing great,

Today's question my first three spread that I learned

Three Card Spread
If you are a beginner to tarot this is a very good spread to begin with because you don't feel overwhelmed and you will learn to know the cards and the whole deck.
The cards can be a three months spread - This month, next month, and third month
This spread can also change into a moon phase spread - Waxing moon, full moon and waning moon. You can make your own spin on it.

The Celtic Cross
Majority of the tarot beginners learn the Celtic Cross as the first big spread. It is not a easy spread to learn, so you need to take you time and not rush to learn it.
I sometimes have a problem to see the big picture in this spread and when that happend I just pack up, reshuffle and lay down a spread.. Sometimes I change the deck.

My third spread was the horseshoe and this is also a great beginner spread. You can add cards and you can …

6/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - How long have you been reading the Tarot for? Do you feel you will ever stop?

Bilde
Hello winter babies and merry meet :)

How are you doing and I hope you are doing well

Today's question is: How long have you been reading the Tarot for? Do you feel you will ever stop?

I have read tarot on and off for almost 20 years. Like I have said earlier I lost several cards in my first deck and I did't buy another for close to 10 years.
Reason for it was I thought I couldn't learn because I had a hard time learning and it was confusing and I didn't connect with the deck at all. I came across Anne Stoke's Gothic tarot by a accident online.. I ordered it and I was hooked again.. I ususally read for myself and close friends.

Now looking back.. I had been kicking myself for not buying a new tarot deck because I feel like I have lost a lot of time.

I will never stop reading tarot because I learn so much from myself and I want to expand it to read for other, but one step by step.. baby steps :)

Yes, I want to know my Paulina deck better and I want to know Book of shadows: As Above better. On the other hand I want to get to know all of my decks a little better.

My other half of the answer if there are decks I want to buy and to get to know better?
There are a few I want to get: Cosmic tarot, Mystical cats, Illuminati tarot, Thoth tarot, Tarot of the Vampires - Just to name a few.









Blessed be and merry see,

Pagan challenge week 6 - What are your cultural inluences

Bilde
Good morning little elves :)

How are you and I hope you are doing well. Prepping for Yule/Christmas/Hanukkah/kwanzaa? I wish you have a peaceful time in your celebration.

This week I want to write about who or what are my cultural influences.
I am a Norwegian and I feel a strong connection with the North Mythology.

There is some faily members who is digging in our family history.. Apperently Harald Hårfagre is my 42nd or 47th Great grandfather. Harald Hårfagre (Harald Fairhair) lived about 850-931
He was the first king of Norway (872-931) and he was the one who gathered Norway to one Kingdom.
I don't know if this is true or not, but think about it - The vikings was not the most faithful people - It is been said that Harald fairhair had 20+ kids with a heap of baby mamas..... that being said... who isn't related to a viking?

I seen a lot of YouTube videos on this and a lot of people who listed parents, grand parents and great grand parents. I must say I am glad to see people wh…

I have a hard time to choose a top deck and even top 3 because my favourites changes seasonly and even monthly, but these tarot decks are my favorite right now.


Cat's Eye Tarot by Debra M. Givin, DVM is a great tarot deck if you are a beginner or seasoned tarot reader. I am a cat lover as well so this was a natrual deck to get. It reads very well.
I can se our cat in these cards and how he behaves :)







 Book of shadows: So below by Barbara Moore is a favorite of mine
What she did here was put people in daily situation according to the cards in tarot. I loved it. The deck is modern and it read very well. I can recommend this to a beginner... I can recommend all of these to a beginner

Hello little bloom faeries and merry meet😊

How are you guys? I hope you are doing well 😀

Today is the question:  Are you a Tarot deck collector, hoarder or exclusive betty? How do you use these decks in your readings? Multiple decks in one reading or just one all the way? Does it aid your practice? 

Am I tarot collector or a hoarder exclusive betty? well it depends who you are asking. I am collector, but I don't buy them in sake of buying them.. I buy tarot decks I know I will work and connect with.
My husband on the other hand will tell you that I am a hoarder of tarot decks...

Today I have 18 Tarot decks and 7 Oracle decks and counting 🙌I have a long tarot list I want to buy in 2017.

There are one teeny tiny store that sells tarot decks, but she sells just Doreen Virtue tarot/oracle decks... Nothing wrong with these decks, I have Doreen Virtue deck in my collection and I love them, but I want more decks to choose from. Therefor when I order decks online, it is not easy to kn…

2/31 - 31 Days of Tarot Blog - What was your first Tarot deck? Was it a gift or did you buy it for yourself? Do you still have it?

Hello Christmas faeries and merry meet,

How are you all doing and I hope you are doing well

Todays question is: What was your first Tarot deck? Was it a gift or did you buy it for yourself? Do you still have it?

- I bought my first deck when I was early in my twenties, I bought a tarot book by Jane Lyle and it came with a no brand tarot deck, but it was a classic RWS system.
I remember that I thought I can't learn tarot because I have a hard time to remember the meaning of the cards. The reason was that I didn't connect with the deck at all.

As the years went by I lost a card and a another and another...When I had lost about 8-10 cards I thought fuck it, so I started to use my tarot cards as bookmarks, I put them in my filofax and so on.



Blessed be and merry see,

Susann
