Welcome to the 2014 Solstice Tarot Blog Hop. Our wrangler for this hop is Olivia from First Earth Tarot. She’s challenged us with this question/theme:

For this blog hop, the theme is: joy. What are you joyful about? What brings light to your heart? How do you spread joy to others?

We like to think that we spread joy is many ways–from new Tarot decks to gorgeous oracle decks to lovely Lenormand decks. But did you know we also have games? Check out our 1864 poker deck or the immensely popular, not to mention award-winning, Wizard(r) card game.

Some recent offerings that are bringing joy to us are these Lenormand decks:

Then there are these Tarot decks.

And we can’t forget the Oracle decks:

In our very joyful Joie de Vivre Tarot, we shared a spread we called Spreading The Joy. You can find it in the Little White Book for that deck. Did you know that you can find the LWB for many of our decks online? Just go to our home page, search for your deck, then look for the PDF link on that deck’s page.

So tell us which of these decks mentioned here bring you the most joy. We’d love to hear from you. And we have so many new products that we may have inadvertently forgotten one! So our apologies if we did. If you let us know, we will include it on this joyful roundup.

#Tarot Client: ISO Love

One of the most common questions readers get is "Will I ever find love." Also heard are variations on the theme of "Will she come back to me?"

Agent Reader had one of those last night that was a bit more unusual. This was a Count by the name of Vlad who said he was having trouble hanging on to love. Seems they all complained he had a very draining personality.

So he asked where he might look for love this time and if he could expect that love to stay. Based on these three cards, what advice would you give our lovesick Count?

Introducing the Art of Life #Tarot Deck

ArtofLife_Box
We here at US Games Systems Inc are excited about a new Tarot deck called Art of Life Tarot which will be releasing very soon. This unique deck combines masterpieces of art with masterpieces of words. Reviews are already rolling in.

Charlene says, "…by drawing inspiration from my background in art history and my lifelong passion for quotations, I could capture the essence of the meanings behind each card while simultaneously encouraging the reader to interpret its personal meaning."

ArtofLife_Easel

 One thing we love is the box design. It is a heavy-duty weight with a stand-up lid that serves as an easel. You can slide in your card of the day to use it for your daily focus.

ArtofLife_WheelofFortune
Donnaleigh de la Rose was moved to tears. She says, ""I sank into the cards, their quotes, and marveled at how closely I felt they interacted with my life." You can see her full review here.

ArtofLife_Cups2
Don't miss the review from Christiana Gaudet who had this to say. "Art of Life Tarot from U.S. Games is a truly unique and valuable deck. It easily teaches two important concepts with which tarot students often struggle." You can enjoy her review here.

ArtofLife_Swords7
Janet Boyer says, "I marveled at the Art of Life Tarot." Read the full review here.

Zanna Star remarked, "I am truly impressed and delighted with the choices of art and quotations chosen by Charlene Livingstone for the cards in Art of Life Tarot." You can read the full review here. ArtofLife_Wands3

See how Tarot blogger, Koneta Bailey, uses the Art of Life tarot in her daily draw here. She comments, "The quote on the card pretty much sums it up… Don’t you think?"

Ask A Reader 3 #Tarot

Today's Ask A Reader comes from X who has two possible apartments to move to. We drew from the Joie de Vivre Tarot. I want to point out that I drew blind and put them on the scanner without looking at them first. I was suprised by the cards! Seems like a clear cut case, but is it?

First apartment Pro/Con

USGS_JdVplace1 (1024x779)

Second apartment Pro/Con

USGS_JdVplace2 (1024x766)

So what advice can you offer X today? Which living situation seems to be the better of the two?

Ask The Readers

You are the reader today. I had the following question so we are going to throw this open to all our blog readers. This is now your client. The question is: 

What do I need to do to grow my business exponentially?

What would you tell this client? I drew the following three cards for the Situation, the Action and the Outcome? See the bottom of this post for how you can be the next one we all read for.

CV_1Coins
Situation: Ace of Coins

CV_9Coins
Action: 9 of Coins

CV_11Coins

Outcome: Princess of Coins

Thanks for your assistance. And if you have a question you would like answered, please send it to Stella with the subject line, "Ask The Readers". We will pull three cards and ask our blog readers for their interpretations.

"Fantasy artist Galasso has transformed classic tarot imagery into a vibrant tour, through a crystal ball, into a magical world filled with fairies, fantastical creatures, and exotic flowers. Color creates the backdrop against which the story of each card is told. Lyrical and mysterious, the illustrations almost sing." — Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight Magazine

Spring – A Joyous Celebration of Rejuvenation, Hope and Happiness (#Tarot & the Vedas)

by Preeti Poojara 

Basant-panchami"In the Spring, a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love," wrote Lord Tennyson. As per traditional Hindu calendar Vasant Panchami is the first day of spring. Vasant Panchami is the fifth day of the bright fortnight of the Hindu month Magh. Spring is a passage between winter and summer. Around Vasant Panchami, you can still feel the chill in the weather. Winter is not yet over, yet dullness of the winter seems to be dispersing. You can feel those happy romantic vibes in the air. Traditionally, the festival of Holi indicates the end of winter. Holi is the festival of colors representing colorfulness and joy of spring. It also indicates the victory of good over evil. It is the festival of growth, renewal and rejuvenation. The entire season of spring is the time for physical and spiritual revival. Vasant Panchami is also celebrated as the birthday of goddess Saraswati, goddess of speech, sound, universal knowledge, wisdom and all forms of art. Shatrupa Saraswati is beautiful goddess having hundreds of forms. Generally she is portrayed
