Introducing my newest deck, the Antique Anatomy Tarot (Ephemera Edition) by Claire Goodchild (IG : @BlackandtheMoon)
Gorgeous isn’t it?
I’ve been waiting for this deck to arrive since June. It was definitely worth the wait. I adore the card backs and of course the artwork.
I’m looking forward to getting to know and working with it for my daily throws.
As we near the end of this year I’m feeling quite ambitious. I want to start all sorts of creative projects, set intentions and new goals. I love that feeling of new beginnings, a clean slate and having a whole new year to get my shit together, ha.
A few years ago, when I had first got into tarot, I challenged myself to pull a card every day for a year. It was my way to teach myself, get to know each card, carve out self-care and hone my intuition. I did this consecutively for 3 years, with different decks, and documented my readings on IG using the hashtag #tarot365.
Since my tarot readings have been sporadic at best and my intuition rusty, I decided to re-challenge myself for 2018. I feel called to use/work with The Illest Tarot deck this time around and I’m pretty excited as I find it to be such a playful and cheeky deck.
Feel free to join in! I’ve written out the rules and such here for easy reference.
I want… this fucking heatwave to suck it.
I want… cold weather. Like, wite-walkers marching down the fucking street, cold.
I want… grey and misty mornings where I can wear all my cute ass clothes.
(Side note : I have to go out and buy new jeans because two subsequent pregnancies left me with LESS of an ass than I started off with?! AND 15lbs lighter but, that’s probably due to breastfeeding two humans).
I want… good food because I’m always famished and parched. I also want someone to cook it for me because I sure as hell don’t want to stand in front of a hot stove.
I want… the old days of the internet, when it was an ‘escape’ from the real world.
JUSTICE (hold yourself accountable, seek balance between work/play/life)
QUEEN OF SWORDS (be direct, don’t let your emotions rule your choices)
ACE OF PENTACLES (productivity, stay grounded)
EIGHT OF SWORDS (banish the negativity from your mind, don’t fear the unknown)
What makes me feel safe?
I am enough. I am. And you are enough, too.
SEVEN OF CUPS (narrow your focus, evaluate your options)
KING OF WANDS (harness the positive energy around you)
I am delighted by… all the good things. Some days it’s harder to see them but they’re there.
ACE OF PENTACLES (new beginnings, take advantage of positive energies)
DEATH (embrace change and transformation)
QUEEN OF WANDS (put your skills to good use)
