Monica StoinescuMy name is Monica, and this little corner of the world is where I share my ponderings on tarot, divination, moon lore, folk crafts, natural magic, and all things that nourish my life. Thank you for stopping by – I hope you enjoy reading my blog. Random facts about me:
*I have studied tarot since 2008, and practiced it as a reader since 2010. I love this craft and intend to practice it well into my crone years.
*I was born in Romania on a full moon with a Sagittarius Sun and Gemini Moon. It was only in 2011 that I discovered, on a trip back home, that my grandmother used to read cards – this was quite a revelation to me, since she never mentioned it before. However, in no way do I think one needs to have a “gift” passed down through the generations in order to read the cards, or practice any oracular divination.
*The Haindl Tarot is my favourite deck.
*My other work interests include environmental and sustainability issues.
*I currently live in the Whitsunday region of Queensland, Australia. It is hot, it is sunny, the winters are (mostly) like summer and the summers are like, well, too hot to contemplate. This suits my cold (ayurvedic vata) temperament quite well. The photo above was taken during a cold winter morning – I believe it was 4 degrees Celsius for about 2 hours. Once 10am arrives we’re back to the low to mid 20’s.
*My study interests include tarot, astrology, yoga, herbal medicine, organic and biodynamic gardening, shamanism and natural magic.
