Yule #Tarot Blog Hop

The Tarot Blog Hop began February 2012. This is our last hop of the year. To hop to the blog before, please use this handy gift tag. See the master list link and the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post.

BloghopbackYule

Our Yule Blog Hop theme is ‘Christmas Present’. We were pretty much left to interpet this as we saw fit. Since we have a tradition on our blog of showing you pictures, we thought we would use the 9 of Cups and 9 of Pentacles today. Why? Well because the 9 of Cups, according to Biddy Tarot, represents the fulfilment realised after the accomplishment of our deepest desires. The 9 of Pentacles is the card that represents material wealth and success.

Magical Buffet #Tarot Column

The Magical Buffet featured the Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg in their Moonlight Tarot's Question corner.

who will be referred to as Helena. She writes in wanting to know if the
man she is seeing is as serious about the relationship as she is.
Whether her relationship has long term commitment potential, and what
obstacles she may face in this relationship as well as general advice
for the future are also questions on her mind. For this reading the
Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg is used. The resulting cards drawn are ….read the full blog here.

Samhain #Tarot Blog Hop

<–Previous Post

We are glad you have joined us. Our blog hop theme this time is from Amethyst Mahoney who also has the master list. She came up with a topic about looking at yourself. Here’s a quote from her post. “Rather than look to outside entities this Samhain, look inside of yourself. All of your Self. The dark pieces that you think you have left behind. The parts of your Shadow that you believe you have pushed deep, deep down into a dark well.”

In the hops we’ve participated in, we have shared images from our decks. We thought we would share the enigmatic courts of the Vampire Tarot. Which of these do you think represents your own shadow?

Would you choose one of the pages? (Click to see the full size images)
