Sorry I haven't done much to update this group and most everyone else has gone relatively quiet. But I'm updating for now to keep the community from being labeled "inactive" by LJ's new policy and being purged.
If anyone has anything they want to discuss that's tarot-related, feel free to. I'm going to try and start working on the monthly tarot readings by astrological sign, but I'm not making promises just yet. I need to get back into the practice of doing regular readings again.

Does anyone else have this deck? I bought this Tarot yesterday, and I am in awe at the illustrations. I find much gentleness and kindness in the depictions, and what look like stories connecting different sets of cards within a kind of continuity.
F'r'instance, the 4, 5 and 7 of Swords seem to take place in the same bleak mediaeval setting of grey stone castle walls; the 8 through 10 of Swords, and the 9 and 10 of Wands, seem to depict the story of Jeanna D'Arc - praying for a vision in the 9 of Wands, beset by a mob in the 8 of Swords, cruelly forced to stand naked before a King with a baying mob behind her calling for her blood in the 9 of Swords, burned at the stake as a divine light shines upon her head in the 10 of Wands and revealed to those loyal to her in the 10 of Swords in a vision.
Card v, the Facilitator, replaces the Hierophant, and is seen marrying a couple dressed as God and Goddess, kneeling and bound, in the woods as wolves look on: VI, the Lovers, shows that couple, shorn of their trappings, freed from their bonds, coupling standing up as a wolf family plays around them.
A couple in Card VII, the Chariot, appears later in the 6 of Wands, driving in triumph surrounded by an escort of loyal wand-bearing people.
And XVII, The Star, shows a half-naked man wearing nobbut a green silk turban, green silk pants with a cloth-of-gold belt, gold slippers and a gold torc and gold bracers, standing alone in a desert. In The Star, he beckons upwards; in the 7 of Wands he defends himself with arcane force (an awakened cobra, representing his Awakened Kundalini force) against seven wands attacking him, and in the 8 of wands he sees them off, sending a directed bolt of Kundalini energy along with them.
There are a lot of events taking place on the bank of a river in the Cups cards; a pair of young women (one white, one black) kiss in the 2: they are joined by a third, an Oriental girl, in the 3: and the Oriental girl is left alone by the river in the 4. Staying on the theme of same-sex relationships, a naked male couple are seen from behind admiring some pyramids in the 2 of wands. Joined by a woman in the 3 of Wands, the guys are married in the 4, and sadly in the 5 they are standing alone, fighting off those pesky flying Wands.
I haven't used this new deck in a reading yet, but it should be interesting to try it out, and see how it responds to me when I call upon its services.
I got this is in my e-mail today, so I thought I'd post it with the link provided, and if anyone's interested, they can take part. Hi, I thought your community members might be interested in our community and I didn't want to pimp mine on yours, so I thought I would contact you and see about getting added to your links section or something.
My community is called tarot_guild (http://community.livejournal.com/tarot_guild/). We offer networking between divination readers and we also have our readers offer three free readings per two weeks. You don't have to be a member to request a reading and all we ask in return is that we get feedback about the person's experience with the reading. We are trying to learn and grow as readers as well as offer our services to any who want them. Some of us are professionals, some students and some of us are just practicing (reading to be able to read for people). If you think your members would be interested in us, please add us to your links or say something about us if you like. Thanks.

Hi everyone! I found this comm through wolf_heart9. I'm new to tarot reading...I got an interest in it by having several good friends who read. I'm picking up my first deck soon.
Good to meet you!
You are The Star
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised
The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.
And I want this deck
You are The Magician
Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.
Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing,
you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.
The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man - either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.

Hello again, long time no lurk, hihihi, salut
, alla that.wolf_heart9
asked me to post the series of Tarot interpretations I'd been doing in my journal, here, and it's a damned good idea. Some brief background, and then I'll start in. Hopefully it'll spur me on to finish at least the Major Arcana.
I started this waaay back in 2005--yes, really--as a way to better understand the cards through reinvisioning the archetypes. Much of each post is clips from the better Tarot interpretation sites on the web, but also, I'm hoping that each image ties the viewer in closer by hooking into that modern media connection.
Eventually, I may give up and print the images out with brief outlines, and laminate the whole thing on 3x5 cards. Or, hee, that one huge
weird set of blank Tarot cards
Anyway, there's that, and hi, and off we go.

My new tarot deck came in Monday the 10th and they're gorgeous. They have what I think is the
best Justice card ever
! It's the only one that's ever successfully given me goosebumps...or as Jeff might call them: Truth Chills.
Anyhoo, I just scanned in all the Major Arcana (and one day I might do the Minor) and I'm going to post them here and in my personal lj. You'll want to click on the image a couple of times if you want to see them in detail. They're fuckin' awesome though. I'm in love. ( Images behind here:Collapse )

Okay. I've been reading tarot cards for many many years now. And know of other methods of psychic reading, some of which I do and some of which I don't. I even laughed my ass off while watching Mallrats
because of the fortuneteller with the third nipple who does topless readings.
Thank you, Ann, for sending me this link:Blind Psychic Gropes Buttocks to See the Future( Blind Psychic Gropes Buttocks to See FutureCollapse )

Not that I think any of the three communities I mod will come under attack from LJ or this stupid Warriors of Innocence group, but I thought I'd jump in as a moderator and speak a few words. There's nothing about dreamarchetypes
that should be considered suspect, but in case these people want to look into it, everyone here might want to update their profiles with their full birthdates (that includes the year you were born) just so that they can't say anyone's a minor under that could be corrupted. Also if any of you are in groups that could be considered suspect, it's best you take whatever measures you need to to protect your communities. I know that a few people here might be in some BDSM comms or other fandoms that could come under fire (I've heard they're attacking quite a few of the Harry Potter fandoms). So just a heads up.
I'm going to post this (or something like it) into all three of my comms just to make people aware of what's going on. All I'm asking, and it is asking
nicely as a moderator, is that you just fill out your birthdates in full on your profiles. You don't have to. I won't kick you out if you don't or anything. It would just be a courtesy thing to me so that IF these wankers decide to go after anything that could be construed as a threat to the poor children's minds. *rolls eyes*
What are your interpretations of The Hermit card, in those Tarot decks which have a Hermit or equivalent card?
Was wandering through the tarot site again and three decks caught my attention tonight. Figured I'd post the links.
This first one was interesting, but there's so much going on in each card, that I'm not sure I could read with them. True Love Tarot
This one is absolutely stunning! I'd love to have this one...Attuned: A Moon Cycle Deck
I'd have to say that this is probably the
most interesting looking Celtic deck I've seen to date...Celtic Tarot
What's been going on? This group's gotten quiet...

There isn't going to be a November Zodiac tarot reading. I'm sorry, but homework has seriously kicked my ass lately. When I have had free time, I've attempted the readings and always find myself passing out. So, yeah. I'm not sure if there will be a December one...that will all depend on my papers and my projects. But I'll attempt it at the very least. Next semester might be easier. I'm not sure.
Sorry guys...I really did try. It's just that homework has eaten my brain and my energy.
Yeah, I didn't get September's Astrological Tarot readings done. Sorry about that. School started and I just haven't had the chance to do them. I'm not going to bother with September, but if I can pull some time together, I'll get the ones done for October.
