I’ve had The Marigold Tarot for a little while now and I’m just now sitting down to fully enjoy it. Oh, what an amazing deck it is, too! If you’re familiar with the Shitty Horoscopes series, you know this art and artist, Amrit Brar. She’s wonderful and The Marigold Tarot is pretty wonderful too. Let’s see what it has to say!
Trying something a little different here at Balance These Scales: monthly readings! I’m still getting the hang of this so you might see some things changing here and there. In the mean time, enjoy!
She’s here! The Ethereal Visions Illuminated Tarot deck is in my hands and I am absolutely in love! It was love at first sight with this deck, and now, with the cards in my hands, I fall more and more in love with them every day. It’s such a special deck created by amazing people and it’s always such a joy to read with. Check it out!
Wowzers…2017…what a year! I feel as though this was truly the year of ~realizing stuff~ because so many things were uncovered. I don’t even know how to feel anymore, to be honest.
Okay okay, let’s step back for a sec to November. How was yours? Was it every bit as Nine of Cups as you thought, meaning did you feel the overflowing energy of your intuition and/or subconscious? My subconscious had quite a bit to tell me via dream time, which led to quite a few days feeling foggy, confused, and extra emotional. Towards the end, I was happy to feel some clarity coming through, even if that meant that once the fog cleared, the landscape looked quite different than I remembered it. Was it the same for you?
What’s in store for the last month of 2017? Let’s take a look!
Summer is almost over and I think this morning, I felt the tiniest hint of Fall in the air, believe it or not! how is your year going so far? Mine is a whirlwind of chaos, indecision, and renewed passion for certain aspects of my life that needed a pick-me-up in the best way possible. How about you? Did last month’s Queen of Wands light the way? She certainly did for me! What fun things does August have in store?

Oh. My. Glob. This. Deck. I don’t think I’ve experienced #decklust or deck FOMO this hard since…I don’t know when, to be perfectly honest. I had seen so many gorgeous photos of this “sassy burrito” deck and I just knew I had to have it. When I felt like I couldn’t take it any longer, I went to order it but it was sold out! Major sad face. But then Jess posted about it and I knew that I had to keep trying so that I could finally get my hands on this lovely. To my delight, it was back in stock (forever, I hope!) at Stasia Burrington’s shop. Of course I ordered it immediately and of course I reveled in the gold edged, silky smooth, magical cards. Let’s take a look at what’s in store with our budding new friendship.
This might be an unpopular opinion but I loved The OA. It was surprising in many different ways. I really enjoy the way Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij tell stories. It’s great to see their collaborations come to life in such a unique way. If you haven’t seen Another Earth, I strongly recommend it! The East is also worth the watch as well! But I digress.
The OA was so mystical and other-worldly and it felt like an extended, or possibly a long-lost episode of Supernatural, minus Sam and Dean. And the performances by the entire cast was wonderful! Everyone blew me away.
I remember seeing Vix’s spread on FB forever ago and it piqued my interest, so I watched one episode and then promptly binged the whole series, as one does with Netflix shows these days. And then, I just forgot about it. Maybe the timing and deck choices weren’t right at that time. Maybe this spread was waiting for me to buy the Dame Darcy Mermaid Tarot (what the heck took me so long?!). Maybe I didn’t need to deal with this intense of a look into things until now. Who knows! Let’s take a trip to The OA and maybe we’ll learn the 5th movement.
Here we go again! Another month gone. How was your May? Did you follow the Kings of Wands fire? It led me down some interesting paths, if I’m being totally honest. That Wands fire: always illuminating, always passionate, always fiery.
Holding on to that fire, let’s find out what June holds.
Another month gone! 2017 seems to be flying by, huh? How was your April? Did you take a turn on the Wheel of Fortune? How did it go? Personally, I feel as though I’m hanging on to one of the spokes until I can stabilize. What does stability mean? Well, for starters, the Self Care section in the April Habit Tracker in my Bullet Journal was pretty empty (again!) but that could explain the need for stability. What will May bring?
Even though February is a short month, it really flew by, didn’t it? I hope it wasn’t just me!
I don’t know about you but my February was full of lots of synchronicities. There were way too many coincidental things that could not be ignored. I think I definitely put February’s card into practice consciously and subconsciously. How about you? Did you take the hint from the Seven of Crystals? How does that lead into March?
