Andi Grace shares their experiences of using psychedelics alongside tarot cards for personal exploration.
As tarot readers, it's an honour to give our clients focused time and energy. But it's okay, too, to take a break when you need to focus on yourself.
"As a healer with marginalized identities I claim that I am due more than just sadness; I tire of it. I am due the full breadth of my anger and rage."
We have an idea and a focus for our life now thanks to that illumination from The Star, and it is time to create the path we want out of it. Hold tight to your faith in yourself when this card shows up.
I have to begin with me. I want to reassert my boundaries as a response to what just happened, and I want to reassert openness and find a channel through which to pour all this love inside me out into a world that is in pain.
Kori is a non-binary trans person, long time activist and community educator. In this interview, they explain how they use tarot in their work as a personal coach.
Move on to the next bonfire. Trust this one to run it's course. Seven embers float in the card, echoing the sevens in the spread and also The Tower. This ace whispers ‘let your potential consume you.’
A slow and gradual shift. As much time as I need, and all the love I want. Intentional, practical, and most importantly forgiving.
For the past week, I've held tonight's full moon as a goal, a turning point, a moment when.
A moment when what? A decision? A declaration? A statement of intent?
"I’m no expert, but flower remedies feel a bit like magical potions to me. I make them for myself and for those close to me, like emotional salves to help us through difficult times."
A simple spread to look at what you need, what the situation needs, and how to move forwards - plus my own personal reading.
Seven of Pentacles, The Lovers.
And like that, I felt de-stressed, and like I knew, once more, what to make of the present moment.
[Guest post] "Ritual became an enormous part of my life last year by complete accident."
I recently shared a spread that I’d created for the last new moon. I needed something to help me get a grip on the changes I was feeling inside me, and manifest my own turning point. It turns out lots of you needed the very same thing. I’ve been overwhelmed by the response, in blog …
[Guest post] On the most basic level, those with unaccepting families will find themselves walking a Hermit's path before falling into a chosen family, and while this is not actually exclusive to queer experience, it is all too common in our community.
Let this sea wind batter and transform me. Let my fingers be numb and my skin whipped raw and let this tension finally give, and snap, and change.
Eight of Earth, from the Nomad Tarot Work has been a big theme for me lately. Redefining my own work, redesigning the way I structure my days, and most importantly, rethinking my relationship to my work are topics that have been on my mind and tongue more or less constantly. I’m asking myself questions, like… Now …
Mental health, illness and disability are rarely discussed in the clamour of entrepreneurship blogs. Enter you guys! Here are four entrepreneurial stories which dearly need telling.
Writer Esme Wang on the challenges chronic illness can bring to running a business, and how she writes her way to empowerment and success.
[Guest post] "Living with mental illness gives me an awareness of the separation between my beliefs and actual reality. I think this is an advantage."
Reader SJ on their experiences in 'following their dreams' whilst dealing with disability.
I’ve been making some changes to the way I work lately. After a strange summer of shifting emotions and a feeling that I’d lost myself somewhere along the way, and the unfamiliar experience of simply allowing those shifts to happen rather than leaping to articulate or capture them, September brought clarity, and a climax. In …
Though it looks like things are dying, seeds are falling, determining where they will grow next year. Intentions set now, commitments made.
This morning, I drew cards from three decks. A tarot card, (then another,) from The Collective Tarot. An oracle card, from Dori Midnight’s Dirty Tarot. And a crystal card from the Crystal Portraits deck: Five of Bones Here’s a card I’ve seen in my own readings fairly regularly over the past year. In The Collective …
I’ve been dabbling in herbal self-healing for a few years. I’ve read up a little here and there about different herbs, their medicinal and magical properties and how to use them. Experimented with tinctures, teas and wines. Learned to identify a few of my favourites in hedgerows, roadsides and canal banks. Then a few weeks ago, Em …
She Is Sitting in the Night is unlike any tarot book I have ever read. In many ways it feels like the tarot book I have been waiting for for years. It’s a collaboration between Rima Athar, whose idea it was to ‘revison’ an 80s tarot deck, writer and tarotist Oliver Pickle, who wrote the …
Apathy is an odd feeling. It can creep up on you unawares. Like, one day you’re pootling along merrily, getting stuck in to this and that, and a week later…everything seems… duller. Less interesting. You don’t feel that bolt of excitement any more. What? Yesterday I wrote about getting excited about projects, and getting things done. …
But. As freelancers, activists, business owners, side-hustlers, volunteers and students sometimes we all need to stop procrastinating and do the thing.
The truth is, I’ve been in a bad mood for weeks. Waking up with an inexplicable crossness each morning, as if there were two sides to my bed and it was even possible to have a ‘wrong side’. And if I’m not angry, I’m sad, and tired. Can’t open my eyes, can’t wake up, can’t …
