This weeks Tarot is a big, bold, beautiful round deck. The Daughters of the moon tarot by Ffiona Morgan created in 1991. I don’t have any kind of book for it and the cards are in many cases renamed so it will be a bit of an adventure. There is a Black/White colour it yourself edition out too but I got the vibrant colourful one. There are only 3 courts for all the suits, Mother Maiden and Crone. All in all there are just no men here at all, but quite a few butch, femme, skinny, fat, tan, pale, brown, young, old, disabled, limber, sneaky, half-animal ladies. And yeah, it is a ladies only deck. It just doesn’t bug me as much though. The whole point of the deck is the reclaim the feminine and if that is not your cup of tea, just pass on it and move on, there are thousands of decks out there, surely it must be ok to have one with just the ladies… As usual I will photograph the cards with my old trusty camera since I am too lazy to scan and it looks horrible scanning round images.

Sunday’s card is the 3 of Cups with the keyword of Bonding. What I think of for this card is Celebration! So how can I celebrate my day? Why, by baking of course! It is one of my favorite things to both do and enjoy the result of. Will have some family over to share the goods later.

While looking through this deck I felt inspired to take out an old book I read the first time back in the late 90:ies.  The Holy Book of Women’s Mysteries: Feminist Witchcraft, Goddess Rituals, Spellcasting and Other Womanly Arts by Zsuzsanna Budapest. This is the book that in many way triggered my search for my own kind of spirituality even though I since left this particular path, I will carry with me a lot of the good stuff. There are a lot worse mentors and inspirations out there for sure. I have started re-reading it right now just to see how I feel about it after all these years.

  1. That pounding (and puffing) you hear is me running up the crunchy gravel to your door. I take sugar in my tea, coffee black, dessert any way I can get it.

  2. While I wouldn’t mind some of your desserts (they look delicious!), I came here to say that I much enjoy seeing your cards in the context you use them: on a knitted spreadcloth (which I still adore even though I wouldn’t use it myself), next to a cup of tea (or is it coffee?) and some baked goodies… Please don’t replace that with boring scans in all of your posts (says she who usually cuts away everything but the card from her pictures)!
