Revitalizing Your Tarot Practice, Part II: Spreads
Date: 2009-10-19   By: Barbara Moore
In "Revitalizing Your Tarot Practice, Part I—Decks," tarot expert Barbara Moore looked at ways of recovering from "Tarot Reader Burnout" by using or incorporating another deck.

The Dollhouse Oracle
Date: 2009-09-15   By: Janina Renée
Miniature objects play a role in the material culture of magic and divination, because they can signify material goods as well as other things—including intangible qualities—that we’d like to manifest in our lives.  Perhaps the best known miniature is the dollhouse, which intrigues both children and adults.  A dollhouse can also be used in magic and divination, because not only does it convey the charm of the miniature, it also shares the symbolism of the house, and the house and its chambers provide metaphors for different states of being.  As such a symbolic structure, a dollhouse can serve as the basis of a tarot layout, in which the cards are inserted into its miniature rooms, and then interpreted in the context of the rooms’ different metaphorical associations.  Author Janina Renée presents the "Dollhouse Oracle," a way to use the tarot for insight into your life.

Court Cards, Part I: The Kings of Tarot
Date: 2010-02-22   By: Barbara Moore
Learning the meanings of tarot cards is generally not that difficult; even small children can learn to associate a meaning with a particular card or describe what is happening (as far as illustrated Minor Arcana are concerned) in an image. That said, the majority of taroists will agree that the trouble lies in the Court Cards. In this first installment in a series on the Court Cards, tarot expert Barbara Moore delves into the regal Kings of the Tarot.
