Today’s cards: Art [XIV], Nine of Disks, & Fortune [X].

The Fey Tarot is the work of Mara Aghem. While the card names mostly track conventional tarot naming, the scenes differ from Pamela Coleman Smith’s renditions.

Free Tarot Reading: Spiritually Somethinn

Today’s cards: Strength [VIII], Temperance, & 9 of Coins “Simple Pleasures”. Continue reading What Does The Deck Say? August 17 2017
