Tarot Deck Review/Unboxing ~ Tattoo Tarot

I was so impressed with the colors in this deck and the bold art style, very reminiscent of Ed Hardy.  Tattoo enthusiasts will love this!  The deck was very easy for me to connect with on a variety of levels.  It could easily be used for personal tarot meditation and the tarot journalist, or the professional reader with clients.

You can purchase your deck at my favorite metaphysical shop, Next Millennium, online at http://www.magicalomaha.com

The Miracle of the Cards

Quote:

"How can I explain to the new tarot enthusiast the connection between the water on the six of swords and the woman sitting before me who lost a small child by drowning decades ago?  What miracle allows the human mind to be inspired to see a vision of this event triggered only from the image on a small paper card?  Personal interpretation-- Intuitive Reading-- will be your key to successfully reading the tarot."



From "Tarot: A Witch's Journey"

Amazon Ranking!

My book The Spiritual Feminist is ranked #170 in the Goddess category at Amazon right now... Not too shabby! Woot!

https://www.amazon.com/Spiritual-Feminist-Amythyst-Raine-Hatayama/dp/1782799699/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

I stumbled upon this information by accident today when I was updating my FB pages.  The numbers at Amazon are in a constant state of flux and change, so I don't really keep track of this information intentionally, but I might pay closer attention now.  This book has its own Facebook page (as all of my books do):

https://www.facebook.com/thespiritualfeminist?ref=hl

"So many people throughout my life have told me who I am, what I must do, what I can't do, what I have to complete, and what I will never be able to accomplish, and then I met the Goddess." (From The Spiritual Feminist) ...The Spiritual Feminist empowers today's modern woman through the Goddess, connecting her to ancient matriarchal divinity and spiritual practices which invoke this energy.

Today's Inspiration ~ The Sun

The major arcana card, The Sun, reeks of happiness; but sometimes this happiness comes at a price, and sometimes it comes after a long period of intense seeking and personal revelations. There is virtually no fairy tales in real life with happy ever after endings and stagnant heroes and heroines who remain frozen in one perfect moment of time and space.   And this is not the artificial kind of "happiness" that the tarot card, The Sun, represents. It has more depth than that.

A moment of happiness snatched from the teeth of sorrow is much more profound, with a much larger impact on the human psyche, than a life lived in one eternal "Leave it to Beaver" episode.  And that’s what this tarot card is all about.

Tarot Review/Unboxing ~ Oracle of Mystical Moments



You'll love this deck, People! It's got a very vintage feel about it, both the art and the characters. It's also very whimsical with an "Alice in Wonderland" atmosphere to it. The colors are rich and elegant. It should be at the top of your "must have" list!





Today's Topic ~ Book of Shadows!

Here's mine.  Would you like to share something about yours?... a comment, or a photo, or a video?  When did you start it?  What kinds of things do you add to it?  How do you organize it?  What are your future plans for it?  Who are you going to pass it to?  Do you let people see it, or are you very secretive about it?  What inspires you?

Busy Week ~ Publishing, Revamping, aka I Love Amazon!

It's been a ridiculously hectic week, and I'm kind of sorta' proud of myself for coming through in the middle of a raging achy cold, what my grandmother would call "a case of the cruds".

I've been sick since last Friday, went to work on Monday, came home and started editing a manuscript at 5pm, for my very first book that was published in 2010 by Labyrinth House, Tarot: A Witch's Journey.  I contacted my editor for this book who was excited and gracious, and immediately acknowledged the return of my copyright.  (Yay!  First hurdle accomplished!).  The next thing to do was to bring this manuscript up and start the tedious, very non-fun part of writing called editing. Ugh.  But I was driven with determination and a lot of excitement experienced through a haze of some really awesome cold medicine. (Did I say that?)

Many hours later, it was 2am to be exact, I clicked the final magnificent Amazon KDP button that says in bold and very dramatic letters, "Click to Publish". It was kind of amazing, and I felt kind of like I was clicking something life-changing, like an executioner who pulls the switch. (That might be two really different things, but I imagine a huge adrenaline rush with either one.)  Omg, that done, I flopped into bed with a terrific headache and the knowledge that the gods at Amazon would do the rest.

I'm so proud to show you the cover of the book that I gave birth to (again), without any anesthetic, mind you.  And just as all new mothers say, "It was well worth any pain or discomfort."  And would I do it again?  "Hell, yes!", all new mothers say, cradling their precious in their arms, glowing with their accomplishment, a little giddy from all the hormones.



It's a Kindle!

The Witch's Corner Newsletter ~ February 2018

I am so excited about this newsletter.  I finally got my shyte together with this project and in the process even went back and updated January's debut issue, adding several things that were left out and needed to be included, so you might want to revisit this page.  I've also set it up visually, musically, color-wise, and with a decent almost magazine page feel about it for the format.  I feel comfortable now with the background, the color scheme, the greenery and waterfalls, and smiling Buddha. 

I'm pleased as punch to send off (early) February's edition, and here's an excerpt from the introduction:

This month let's look at the energy for February and what we could be, should be, working on right now for manifestation that will enrich our lives.  You'll also find a spell for the Gray Witch dealing with removing hexes, cleansing afterwards, and making sure the perpetrator gets the message.  You'll find a video of ambient high-frequency music provided for your listening pleasure as you browse this newsletter.  Also, I'm going to be taping a new monthly video created just for this newsletter that will be informal, informative, cover a multitude of goddess knows what topics, and sometimes it might even get personal.  Of course, there will be lots of other gems and nuggets ~ Read on!   And please feel free to pass this newsletter on to a friend.

Taurus ~ An In-Depth Tarot Reading ~ January 2018





I've done a series of videos, 12 of them, one for each zodiac sign, using the Celtic Cross Spread and a variety of tarot decks over the past year.  I have to say that this is one of the strangest.  Instead of editing out odd moments in this video, to make the reading run smoother, I left them in, and I talk to you about them.  I let you know what feels odd about the reading, how the energy feels, what I'm thinking.  I don't know how else to explain the strangeness of this reading, other than to just let you watch it and find out for yourselves.  This felt like such a bizarre reading,
I almost didn't post it.
