The last Major Arcana card for the Lua Tarot is done. Here is Justice! If you’re a Libra, or have a Libra Ascendent, this is one of your tarot card archetypes.
With everything going on in the world there are some lessons that this archetype brings and one of those lessons is balance.
In a world where everything seems so dichotomous, Justice teaches us to find the center. She teaches us the lesson of the middle path. On this spectrum of reality there are many perspectives, and somehow (at least in this country) we’ve come to have deeply polarized reality maps of our ideals and our society.
Now that NWTS is over, I’m going to start working on the Lua Tarot again. I had a sample deck at NWTS with the completed cards. Here are three of them. I’ve been personally working with these three archetypes this year. Strength and the Hermit are my year cards...and the Empress is my Soul card.
A reading with these cards would look like: Withdraw and find Strength in your inner wisdom. If you’re isolating, nourish your creativity. Stay grounded and trust your inner wise Self.
Scorpionic Astrology is upon us with Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury all in the sign of the Transformer and Regenerator. Scorpio Season.
Scorpionic astrology is upon us! Here are the corresponding cards from the Antiquarian Tarot and my divine musings.
Sun went into Scorpio today!
New Moon will also be in Scorpio Sunday (if you don’t know, New Moons are always the same as the Sun sign bc they are in conjunction)
Mercury in Scorpio will go retrograde on Halloween! (Forewarned is forearmed!) Also Venus has been in Scorpio and will be until Nov. 1st.

Today I want to share with you some ways I have been using this oracle set. I will be focusing on the new Holistic Magick Spread that I shared with you last month.
This spread has two parts. The four outer cards are the four quarters/corners of Earth, Air, Fire & Water. The three on the inside represent the holistic trine of body, mind & spirit.
How to throw the spread
I wanted to take a moment to show you the best way to get your cards in and out of your bag, since it's a slightly snug fit at first. The video below demonstrates how to do this. Hope this helps!
I've used these bags for years and I am a bit obsessed with them. They're durable, padded, and the zipper is YKK brand too! If you're not familiar, YKK has the best quality zippers around. They seal up tight when zipped up and are treated in such a way that they shed water, and keep it from seeping through to your cards.
I'm not saying these zippers are waterproof, nor is the bag. However this zippered pouch does add some protection from the elements, which is an added bonus...especially when traveling. It's so easy to toss into your luggage or purse without worry!
Calling in the four corners to connect with your personal trine

Hey Ho for Halloween!
A fellow card reader, Judy Kerr, posted this video in our study group and I just had to post it here too. You will see her old pack of Dondorf Lenormand cards are so well loved that some of the cards are taped together to keep from falling apart. The well-worn deck appears to have been passed down to her? This woman is beautiful, and I love her rings!
The Antiquarian Lenormand's first edition had hand-inked edges applied to all 150 decks using black permanent ink. In my opinion, the cards are beautiful with this additional detail. However, the next printing will not come with this black edge treatment. It's very easy to do on your own, but way too many decks for me to tackle. I invite you to edge treat your decks! It creates a finishing touch that gives the Antiquarian Lenormand its elegant aesthetic. You can use this process to edge treat any of your card decks that have a black border on both sides.
