Over the past few months I’ve had to let the blog posts slide in frequency, though it’s not for lack of trying. Tarot continues to be an integral part of my life, of who I am, and shaping to be. In saying that, I am joyously taking a slight detour through the woods, a new path, a new beginning.
My partner and I are expecting our first child in July, and among the preparations (read: I’m enjoying doing as little as possible for as long as I can, in a very good way) blogging has fallen to the side. Initially it was a lack of energy and the common “morning sickness”, although now the more delectable endeavour known as “nesting” is taking place.
Through it all I am still reading cards, though almost exclusively for myself (save for a handful of clients), every week, if not every day. Cups of nettle and red raspberry tea are savoured in vintage Crown Lynn, so some things will never change.
Despite this, I have to acknowledge time will become an increasingly rare commodity, and the blog is basically being put on hold. I am not even sure if I will keep it or delete it – it seems there’s 97 subscribers out there, and a few more regular readers, and I thank everyone for taking the time to browse through, comment, and give me feedback.
For anyone wishing to get in touch in the future, or request a reading, please go to my Whitsunday Oracle website (which is in a very draft stage – one more project to tidy up before the big day…) and you’ll find contact details there.
Finally, I’ll leave you with a lovely Tarot story about the beginning of my journey into pregnancy: a while before I fell pregnant, I asked the Dark Goddess Tarot for a Goddess to guide and help me through the journey of conception and birth. I needed a bit of encouragement and strength at that time, you know, when you really need the energy of the world to acknowledge and support you.
It so happens that I drew the Empress card, which was a very strong message of support and guidance for me at the time. I have actually taken this card out of the deck and kept it framed, either by my bedside table or on my Tarot study table, ever since. I know I still have a long way to go – and the best part is yet to come, but having her as my guide is exceptionally reassuring.
Again, thanks to everyone for taking the time to read and/or comment on my little corner of the world. I’ve loved it all and am grateful to live in a time when the Tarot world is so widely, and openly, created and shared. I thank all the women and men who have contributed towards making this world available and beautiful, despite considerable challenges over the past few decades.
Wishing everyone a blessed journey ahead,
