Who Wants a Prize?

This post was written by Barbara Moore

Because I am so suggestible you all get the chance to win a prize.

Christopher Penczak is one of the my favorite authors and his new book The Witch’s Coin: Prosperity and Money Magick is just out, so of course I am reading it. He writes, “New witches start their magickal practice doing waxing Moon magick to accumulate all the things they want. Wiser, more experienced witches find as much value, if not more, in waning Moon magick, banishing unwanted forces to make room for blessings they might not yet have dreamed of.” Then he tells us to clean our home or office. So I cleaned my home office.

I found that I had two copies of the 2002 Llewellyn’s Tarot Calendar. The Tarot Calendar (published 2000-2002) was an awesome annual. In the 2002 version there are Featured Articles by Anrell Ando, Mary Greer, Thea Bloom, Rachel Pollack, Valerie Sim, and John Michael Greer. There are Monthly Articles and Tarot Spreads by Nina Lee Braden, Gina Pace, Robert Place, Yasmine Galenorn, and others. In addition to the longer feature articles, each month includes a picture of a tarot card, a short article, a spread, and a short tip.

Here is an example of a tip: The Minor Arcana Reading. For readings on day-to-day activities, try using only the Minor Arcana. This will shift the focus to more mundane matters and provide readings that are a little more down-to-earth than those involving the Major Arcana.

How can you win this calendar? Easy! Simply include one of your favorite Tarot Tips in the comments and you’ll be entered in a drawing where the winner will be randomly selected. The contest closes on Friday, October 9 and the winner will be announced on Tuesday, October 13.

When ever I receive or purchase a new tarot deck the first thing I do cleanse it through all four of the elements. Then I select crystals that will work with this particular deck. After placing the deck in its new bag a packet of special herbs are included.
When I get to reading, I have a small backet with me that contains crystals, I have the person that I cam reading for chose one crystal, have them hold it while I do their reading.
After the reading they are take this crystal home as a rememberance of their reading.

To keep decks and books corralled at least mentally try this free software. http://booktome.shanemca.com/
When you list one it connects to Amazon’s software and infills ISBN etc.

Lots of people complain because the lid on the tarot box gets ruined fast. I’ve found if I lay the filled box on it’s back it makes just enough space to insert the lid flap easily

Two tips for the price of one 🙂

I love many of the decks and could go nuts buying up many of them. I stick with one deck, the one I learned with and liked best out of the two decks I own.
If I choose to use crystals I choose the crystal that is drawn to them, either by my intuition or a combination of there’s opening as I guide theirs.
Then I like to do palm reading on my client to see how the reading has gone and to the leave them with a sense of understanding and trust. Depending on what it happening in their lives it the whole meeting may take anywhere from one 1 to 3hrs depending the counsel that is needed. And how much time is spent blabbing.my clients like this and we need to feel connected in some way. How else can I understand each individuals pain, efforts, and achievements?
Live blessed, true, and smile lots too!

For a perfect ready made Tarot reading cloth, just visit the kitchen/dining room section at any high street outlet and get a Cloth Placemat setting.
A great size and they normally have the stiffening sewed in the center to prevent the cloth from slipping around:)

One of my favorite Tarot tips is to take an old, worn-out deck and glue the cards into an art journal. You have loads of space to write about each card and you don’t have to throw them away. Makes a great study tool.

If you have a favorite Tarot deck that means a lot to you, it might be worthwhile getting a second copy of the deck. That way, one set can be used for divination and one for meditation, spell work, and the like. Plus if you ever have a card damaged or lost you will be able to replace it.

I use old wooden cigar boxes to store my decks and books(most of them fit nicely). I find them reasonably priced at the local tobacco shop, some even cedar lined. The small journals I purchase for first impressions, daily card draws, when I acquire a new deck can also be stored in them.

Awesome tips!
@Kathy: I love the idea of cleansing a new deck in a way that incorporates the four elements.
@Sharyn: How have I never heard of Booktome before? It’s free and it looks fabulous. And that tip for closing the deck box…now that’s brilliant. Am I the only one who didn’t know that tip?
@Carrie: I, too, love mixing crystals with tarot.
@CWilliams: Great idea to use a placemat. And if you have a sister who sews (like I do!), you can have her make some 🙂
@Arwen: fantastic tip for using old decks. I also make copies of cards to use in my art journals: http://www.llewellyn.com/blog/2009/08/rewriting-history-or-rewriting-the-future-part-1/
@Rebecca: this is a really good idea, especially if you know a deck is going out of print.
@MLHardin: I am going to find a tobacco shop and get some boxes. I like the idea of keeping a small journal with a deck. Do you decorate the boxes to kind of match the deck?
