BRB: The blog's taking a short hiatus!

I'm going on vacation, kids 👋👋

It's been a year and four months since I put up this website and the Practical Magic IG page and wow, did I underestimate just how much I had and could say about the tarot and spiritual practice in my little, modern, pop culture heavy bubble. Creating content for this site has allowed me to make so many new friends on and offline, it's allowed me to share a bit of myself, and I think most importantly, it's helped me reacquaint myself with ME.

Tarot x 5: Morgan's Tarot

Just a few months after I'd gotten my first tarot decks, I already knew that I favored decks that were non-traditional and modern. I spotted this at a new age store near Christmas time.

The Light Grey Tarot, however, I think, initiated me into the world of decks that are illustrated and created by small groups of people who share a love for art and, in some ways, the occult.

Deck Update: Cards of Chaos Extras

One of my favorite tarot and oracle artists is Aya Rosen, who created my perfect three-deck suite: the Metro Tarot Cards (my one and only majors only deck), the Black Lilly Tarot (a poker-sized deck with haunting, feminine figures), and Cards of Chaos—a comprehensive, totally intuitive oracle deck. These three decks go together so perfectly, not just because all the art's by one person, but because they build a great foundation for full-bodied, super comprehensive readings I give to clients and friends.
