This Thing Called Tarot

I have been fascinated with tarot for as long as I can remember. My mom had tarot cards and then she bought me my first set of cards when I was about 11. The first deck I ever had was, of course, the Rider-Waite deck and I remember buying it from the mall bookstore. It was, and still remains, the quintessential tarot cards for beginners and pros alike. There are so many decks based off of the Rider-Waite style; it’s iconic. From the symbols on the cards to the faces of the characters, things about the Rider-Waite style deck can be found in thousands of tarot decks on the market.

Has any tarot deck really spoken to you before?

A deck that I find myself currently connected with is the Pam’s Vintage Tarot. It was one of the first decks that really called out to me. From it’s vintage colors and style to it’s classic Rider-Waite looks, it really fit me. It was a limited edition printing and it’s currently hard to find but I knew I had to have it. Has any deck really spoken to you before? If so, you and it are destined to be together. Here’s a look at Pam’s Vintage.

I am also studying the Tarot for Kids deck. This deck is heavily based on the Rider-Waite deck, but is softened just for children ages 8+. As a mother, I appreciate that the images are more gentle for a younger audience. The images feature less intense imagery – for example, the Devil card is now the Bully, Death is now Change, etc. The cards are on the larger side and the cardstock is heavier than standard cards. I think it’s good that the cards are a little on the larger side; it helps to see the fine details and symbols on each card. The booklet that comes with the deck is helpful and makes deciphering the meanings of the cards much easier.

Spreads

There are many different tarot spreads that you can use – laying down three cards drawn at random for instance. There’s also the Celtic Cross spread which is a bit more complicated but great for really complex, serious or detailed questions. You can also create your own spread that works best for you. Personally, I enjoy the three card spread. I read it as past, present and future.

Storytelling

Tarot is a tool of divination as well as storytelling. Depending on the cards drawn, you can weave a whole story based on the characters on the cards. Each card has its own character(s), meaning, symbols and more which make creating a story easy.

It’s possible to create a story just from one card!

Being a Little Witch

I started the Little Witch series with a goal in mind to help little witches of all ages find their way. Little Witches are new to the world of witchcraft and the occult and are looking for answers. They are not defined by sex, gender, race, age or religion. Anyone can be a little witch! Witches are kind and respectful to all people, animals, spirits and of course other little witches. They are friends and caretakers to the planet Earth. Little Witches are inclusive and show respect to all spiritual paths.

There’s a little witch in all of us.

Practical Magic

At heart, I’m a little witch. At this time, I’m in my 30s and I have two small children. I have been dabbling in the world of witchcraft and the occult for many years with my focus being on tarot and divination. I recognized that I am still a little witch because there is still so much to learn about the spiritual world and the magickal world around us.

My children are the reason that I made this book. At this time, they are 7 and 3 years old. Explaining my craft or any spiritual path to them at this time is difficult. Finding a book on the topic that’s fun and engaging is even more difficult. If you follow our Instagram account, you’ll see all of the books we’ve found that feature a witch or magick including classic works like The Wizard of Oz or indie Kickstarter publications like That Witch.

I am a writer. I’ve been writing since I was 10 years old. I have written everything from poetry to prose to plays. I enjoy variety as well as challenging my skills. This is my first time working on a children’s book. I’ve enjoyed it tremendously and I envision working on more books in the future.

There’s so much in the magickal world to look at and view through the little witch lens. We are embarking on a journey to learn all there is to learn so we can better ourselves.
