Tarot Q&A: Minor Arcana cards for general readings

Tarot Q&A: Minor Arcana cards for general readings

This question really caught my attention – it never crossed my mind that that anyone would omit the minor arcana for any reason. I’d love to hear more about where the idea of just using the major arana only comes from…contact me with the form below if you have anything to offer or if you did the search that inspired this fictional Q&A

Q: Can I use minor arcana cards when doing a general spread,…

Light and Fluffy Sandwich Salad

How is it going with the easter leftovers?

Made a giant batch of chicken salad to give a break from ham-o-palooza and use up the boiled eggs. I didn’t sit down and crunch the numbers, but off the cuff, cottage cheese and greek yogurt strike me as healthier than globs of mayonnaise, even the home made olive oil variety. Easier too.

Especially if you don’t bother to measure…just go by texture and…

Arcana In Balance: The Magician

Arcana In Balance: The Magician

The “Arcana in Balance” series began in the early days of the Modern Oracle Tarot blog. The idea was to look at each of the major arcana cards, and how they each teach us an important point of balance in life, like the balance of work and play, new beginnings and staying the course, as we saw with the Fool card last week. The original series was interrupted mid-way by the demands of dissertation,…

There is still lots of interest in the combination of the Magician and the Lover’s card. I have an uneasy feeling it comes from a place of fear and manipulation, to be honest. I get the vibe that it comes from 1. a fear of rejection or a fear being ‘alone’ ie not in a dating relationship or 2. a desire to control someone else’s feelings, and bend a situation to one person’s will over another.

Menu Ideas week of April 21 2014

It’s that twice annual ham leftover time of year again. I’m sticking with the old stand-bys, ham fried rice, and hammy mac n cheese. It’s good old egg salad sandwiches for lunch, and taDAH leftovers are history.

For a gourmet twist to egg salad, an old TV episode of ‘Epicurious’ suggested adding crumbled blue cheese. To save a few pennies, I’ll use blue cheese salad dressing in place of some of…

Q&A: Will we get back together?

Q&A: Will we get back together?


Q: Will we get back together?

A: I don’t know.

Only you and your ex can answer that. Tarot doesn’t predict the future, or read other people’s minds. It’s a way to learn, a way to find inspiration, a way to access your own good intuition…not some kind of creepy stalker thing to go rummaging through other people’s hearts and minds. End of discussion as far as I’m concerned.

But this is your…
