Spirit Halloween Tarot Deck: Deluxe Prism Edition Review

I love the Spirit Halloween Tarot deck. The creator, Vera Petruk, put a huge amount of thought and care into its design. I’ve purchased several Spirit Halloween Tarot Decks over the years for giveaways and gifts because it’s fun, colorful, and so different from a Rider-Waite-Smith style deck. Now that local Spirit Halloween stores are opening, you may be wondering if you should spring for...

2022- The Year of the Lovers

Much like the Chinese Zodiac has an animal (and element) associated with every new year, so too does the tarot. 2022 added together is 6 (2+0+2+2 = 6) and the 6th card in the tarot is the lovers. Sounds sexy, doesn’t it? Everyone is going to be in gross love, right? I’m finally going to find the perfect partner, right Allison? Maybe, but the lovers is much deeper than it appears on the...

Astronomical Samhain Tarot Readings 2021

Did you know Halloween is an astronomical holiday? Today you learned…  Halloween, All Hallows Eve, Samhain, is a cross quarter day- a measurable point midway between the equinoxes.

Moon Void-of-Course

The moon is an important component in astrology. It's one of your "big three" signs (Sun, Moon, Rising) and represents your emotions. The moon's placement in your chart shows what makes you feel secure. What are your deepest needs? How do you express yourself? How do you respond to others? All your emotions, conscious or unconscious, are ruled by your moon. The moon moves through the zodiac...

Gemini’s mutable energy, which is kind of flaky, will still be around for the first half of June, and with Mercury currently in retrograde until the 22nd, it’s important to watch how we’re communicating. Someone cooler than me came...
