Scanning a Tarot Reading
Date: 2011-10-11   By: Barbara Moore
Usually when we scan an email or an article, we miss important information or significant details.

Here Tarot expert Barbara Moore discusses how scanning a tarot reading can provide valuable insight.

Date: 2011-10-10   By: Josephine Ellershaw
A number of similarities exist between Tarot and Eastern philosophy, such as polarity or the force of opposites that we face on the path toward integration. Polarities and their integration towards wholeness is a recurring theme worldwide in various philosophies, as we seek to find our balanced position within the universe. Josephine Ellershaw, author of Easy Tarot Reading, merges these two paths with the Lo Shu Magic Square Tarot spread.

Date: 2011-05-16   By: Sasha Graham
Nothing beats the good fun of a pajama party. Who says you can’t relive the old days?

Tarot: Minor Reflections
Date: 2011-04-18   By: Barbara Moore
One of the joys of tarot is that there are so many ways to look at, think about, and compare the cards. This is also one of the reasons so many people stay interested in tarot for so long. Every way of organizing and dividing the deck leads to deeper and broader understanding of the cards. This complex web also helps us build our own personal philosophy of life. Tarot expert Barbara Moore shares a few techniques to aid us in our reflections of the meanings of the cards.
The Art of Choosing a Tarot Significator
Date: 2011-01-31   By: Susyn Blair-Hunt
Significators play a powerful role in Tarot readings. Not only do they identify a certain person, place or object, they can heighten the focus of the reader as well as the client when addressing the question at hand. But, choosing the best card to signify the main subject of one’s question can be challenging. Susyn Blair-Hunt, author of Tarot Prediction and Divination, provides some guidelines to identify which images of the Tarot will bring the greatest amount of focus to your readings.
Tarot for Beginners
Date: 2010-11-29   By: Barbara Moore
Despite being comprised of a finite number of cards, seventy-eight to be exact, tarot opens us to an infinite universe, both within and without. A newcomer can be overwhelmed by the vastness of the tarot landscape. In addition to the general “bigness” of it all, there is that delightful, freeing aspect of tarot that can also be the bane of a beginner’s experience: there are very few hard and fast rules with tarot. Tarot expert Barbara Moore, author of Tarot for Beginners, explains just what tarot newcomers can expect from her new book.
The Tarot of Vampyres
Date: 2010-10-18   By: Ian Daniels
The Vampyre possess a supernatural sensitivity to whispers on the night breeze. This allows them to hear every ripple of sound in the darkness with deadly accuracy—distinguishing its source and quality. Much like the sonic artistry of bats—with which the Vampyre is often associated—this ability allows them to align themselves to the lightest of vibrations. By attuning themselves to such frequencies they can navigate the invisible web of sound around them, guiding them towards their prey, their sanctuary, and their ultimate destiny. How does the Vampyre myth connect with the Tarot? As Ian Daniels, creator of The Tarot of Vampyres, explains, the answer to that question is, simply, quite well.
The High Priestess: Behind the Veil
Date: 2010-09-20   By: Barbara Moore
The High Priestess card is one of the most loved and most mysterious cards in the tarot deck. Its very nature, the way we interpret it, everything about this card suggests the unknowable. And yet we continue to try, as we should, for in the very act of seeking we find something. Perhaps not the answers we hoped for, but something of value. Tarot expert Barbara Moore not only presents some commonly accepted truths about the High Priestess but entertains ideas of her role in the scheme of things.
Play with Your Cards
Date: 2010-06-14   By: Barbara Moore
Tarot decks were originally used to play a trick-taking card came called Tarrochi. While the game is still played, particularly in Europe, tarot cards are more often used for readings, with readers approaching tarot more seriously and understanding the wisdom, advice, and guidance that the cards provide. But that close connection between cards (even tarot cards) and games cannot be overlooked, and can actually be used to liven up your tarot practice. Here, tarot expert Barbara Moore provides some fun ideas to play with your cards—and experience the tarot anew.
