The Spheres Tarot Spread

A concise spread packed with information you can use now!
I was inspired by math/powers and "spheres of influence": the main card, representing you, changes with the accompanying card.

Give the spread a try and post your readings here!

Inner Sphere

*what you feel, your intention, what you're putting forth
*how circumstances are effecting you

If these cards don't jive, you've pinpointed something that's upsetting you.

Outer Sphere

*your surroundings + current situation

Other People + Factors at Work

*many times describes other people effecting the current situation, can show their 
overall attitude toward you or dominating feature that effects the current card

*can bring up anything else you need to see

This is a great opportunity to connect any court card appearances to people around you.

Tarot Spotter's Handbook is up

I'm going through old readings and journal entries to put together a series on tarot meanings.  These are based on actual readings and life observation over the years.  Another series will be added on things you may notice during a reading- how cards effect each other, court card relationships, etc.

You're welcome to add your own thoughts on the cards.

It's ongoing but you can see what's up so far at The Tarot Spotter's Handbook.

Some stunning yarn I've been eyeing was on sale, so 3 new skeins are mine.  Those are the new altar cloths below.  Two are listed now- camera never works for more than 5 minutes so third will go up tomorrow.  Please tell me what you think!

I've been geeking out on ballet and opera lately.  This piece from Offenbach's Tales of Hoffman has been playing in my head constantly.  So much that I compiled a youtube playlist and pinterest board of favorite videos.

Homemade Oatmeal Scrub

I made this face scrub last winter- loved it so much I gave a few packs away to customers.  I continue to keep a fresh batch on hand- it’s all natural, easy to make and keeps your skin really soft.
