2014 Imbolc Tarot Blog Hop: Increasing Creativity

Previous | Master List | Next

U.S. Games is happy to be joining in another round of the Tarot Blog Hop. Our wrangler for this round is Tarot Grandmaster Christiana Gaudet. She challenged our group to write about “Tarot, Healing and Creativity.”

In Paulina Cassidy’s newest deck (not Tarot), she offers up the idea of choosing two to three of her Witchlings to combine their energy. We offer up this spread to increase your creativity. We chose three Witchlings to serve as the positions of our Tarot spread. You are invited to share what cards you draw and anything you might like to share. There’s even a contest for you.

Spread for Increasing Creativity

    • Meditation,Witchlings by Paulina CassidyMeditation: The Witchling is Jasmine.

      Meditation is not just a journey
      But a shedding of worry and stress.
      Jasmine attunes her mind often
      To keep herself safe from distress.

      This spot will show you what type of meditation might benefit you most in terms of your creative processes. Some find chanting the most relaxing while others prefer to zone out to music. Maybe you are a walking meditation type. See what your cards tell you here.


    • Wish, Witchlings by Paulina CassidyWish: Orchid is the Witchling for this card.

      Orchid wished for happiness
      And then after a short while
      Her rain turned sunny
      Leaving her face with a smile.

      The second Witchling brings you the message of wishing. Creativity is fostered and fed by imagination. What better way to open up our creative channels than with a wish. Draw a card and see where your wishes can take you.


  • Relaxation, Witchlings by Paulina CassidyRelaxation: Petunia is our third and final Witchling.

    Like a river, Petunia flows
    So relaxed to end her day.
    Her mind melds into her spirit
    And with her body, drifts away.

    Our lovely third Witchling suggest that relaxation is the third way to increase your creativity. Sometimes, the brain just needs an out, right? So what card falls here can suggest some ways to relax and just let go.


    Why don’t you draw three cards from your nearest deck now? Share what they are for the positions of Meditation, of Wish and of Relaxation. One comment will be chosen to win their own Witchlings deck.

Five New Decks

U.S. Games is happy to announce the release of three new Tarot decks plus two new oracle decks for your holiday happiness. 

Cat_2Cups

The Cat's Eye Tarot by Debra M. Givin, DVM, is an unusual deck in that the author and artist is also a feline-focused veterinarian. The card meanings and numbering follow Rider-Waite interpretations, with reptiles, fish, birds, and mice replacing the usual suit symbols. Even the newcomer to tarot will be able to relate to these delightful images of cats and learn valuable lessons from them.

CV_4Swords

Then we have Jennifer Galasso's Crystal Visions Tarot. It combines her love of crystal balls with a nod to a famous rock-and-roll singer. The luscious card imagery also illustrates the elemental aspects of each suit in order to aid the novice in forming associations with the cards.

JdV_3Wands

Joie de Vivre Tarot is the latest from Paulina Cassidy. It features her trademark fantastical creatures and eye for detail. Those who take a journey through this wondrous realm will rediscover their own child-like spirit.

And don't miss our latest oracle card decks!

WWO_Primrose

The Woodland Wisdom Oracle deck by Rev. Frances Munro features artwork by the talented Fantasy artist Peter Pracownik. Elves and fairies share their Woodland Wisdom to help you move your life forward in positive ways.

Tea_Ladder

Last but certainly not least is the Rae Hepburn's Tea Leaf Fortune Cards. Rae Hepburn, an accomplished tea leaf reader, teaches you to unlock the ancient secrets of reading tea leaves. Follow a few simple guidelines, and you can immediately read your fortune.

Here are some recent reviews and interviews. If you have reviewed any of these, please send that link to Stella at US Games. We would love to feature that here and on our Facebook page and our Twitter feed.
