A beginner's guide to spirit-work.

Posted by Esra Dagtekin on


Throughout the Month of Alternative Divinations, which was every week of October up to Halloween, I've referenced 'spirit-work'. Especially when it came to pendulums and runes, I skipped over the concept of ancestral divinations or working with your 'spiritual guide'. This might have piqued your curiosity — it sure spiked mine while I was researching for the blog posts! So instead of sending you guys down a rabbit hole of research, I decided that I'll provide you with a post that covers the beginner's things to be aware of before starting with spirit-work.

Meanings of Lenormand cards + their Tarot equivalents.

Posted by Anna-Maria Ninnas on


Just like any language, the language of one cartomancy can be translated and aid in learning the other. This blog post explains the meanings of each Lenormand card in relation to Tarot. We will go through the 36 cards — starting with those that appear similar to Tarot  — and explaining them individually but also highlighting how they're different.

In the end I went with the classical, beginner-friendly Rider-Waite tarot deck as my first. My second deck was one I designed myself! To this day I continue to design tarot decks I find lacking in the tarot market, as well as satisfy your desires. People and the way we connect are many and different. Your first connection with a tarot deck can happen anywhere, anytime, like love at first sight. On a holiday trip abroad. Incidental Instagram scrolling. It can also happen consciously and pragmatically, like myself....
