Received two new tarot decks today (two of several that I ordered during a debauched post-Christmas shopping spree) and that got me thinking about tarot journals. Figured now was the time to create this blog as my own personal tarot journal. I know — the skin doesn’t quite match the title, but my favourite colour is purple and this is so pretty that it seemed a good choice. A return to the girly-girl me I used to be. Some day, maybe I’ll create a custom skin that is more fitting but, for now, this seems appropriate.

One of the decks I received is the Mystic Faerie Tarot. Can I say that it is an absolutely beautiful deck? Easily one of my favourites, if not THE favourite. The cards themselves are very slippery, though. They’re going to be tough to shuffle without inadvertently playing 78-card pickup. Even putting them into the gold organza bag that comes with the kit without losing a card or two is a feat.
