I found this great article about using tarot in a respective and mindful manner today and wanted to share it. Click on the image to be taken to The Tarot Parlor site for more in depth descriptions of each point.
I've updated the font on the Unraveled Oracle to match the guidebook and the stamp on the bag. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
I've added a few decks to my shop and will strive to keep these in stock.
Unraveled can be used daily as:
- A Divination Tool
- Connection to Spirit
- Dream Interpretation
- Self reflection / Daily Mindfulness
- An affirmation deck or gratitude focus
- To aid in journal prompts
- Daily Meditation
- SO much more
Karli of Jessup's General Store and I have teamed up again to make some very magickal altar cloths. These have all be naturally dyed under the full "Cold" moon and screen printed with intention. Click on the pictures to learn more!
I have enrolled and already started my tarot intensive with Ethony to gain my certification through the Tarot Readers Academy. So far it has been amazing! We are currently practicing readings with other students from around the world. It is going to be a lot of work but learning is my favourite thing so I'm loving it. I have decided to use both my Everyday Witch and the Light Seer's tarot decks for this course.
I currently offer readings in my Etsy shop and hopefully once we are able to gather again I will continue to do in-person readings.
I've started a monthly tarot circle with the Sage Wind Temple. I'm hoping it will help others as well as myself to learn together and keep up a regular tarot practice. It is free to join. I have more info here which will have all the workbooks and such for each topic. Hope you can join us.
I am doing an afternoon workshop with the Sage Wind Temple on Sunday Oct 18th from 2 - 4. You can find out more on the Facebook event.

Reading Tarot with Susie Gourlay

Online workshop over Zoom video conference
members & non-members $30
Register ONLINE or call 306-522-5940
In this down to earth class, you will learn how to use tarot as a tool for divination, guidance or self-reflection discussing the archetypes and symbols used to tell the story in the cards.
There is no need to memorize the meanings of 78 cards: Susie will help break down the tarot system in a way that is easy to understand. This workshop is perfect for those new to tarot or those wanting to feel more comfortable reading the cards for themselves or others. You will be provided with lots of resources for further learning on your own as you continue on your tarot journey!
Students must have a tarot deck with traditional symbolism such as Rider-Waite-Smith, Thoth, Halloween Tarot, Robin-Wood Tarot etc. If you have questions about which Tarot deck to use, please contact the AGR, and we will put you in touch with Susie.
DO NOT use an Angel Deck or Oracle Cards for this workshop!
The local witch shop in town here called The Broom Closet, stocks wonderful votive candles with spells included. I've used the Evil Eye one and recently bought the Emotional Balance one. I decided to make a sigil using the affirmation for that candle and share it below.
Learning the tarot is a wonderful experience. This guide is best used with a deck with similar Rider-Waite-Coleman imagery.
I created these pages to aid in learning keywords to help you easily work your way through the 78 cards in a tarot deck.
The Fool's journey is set out to show the progression of life's experiences and learning from mistakes and successes. It is seperated into 3 blocks of 7 cards with the Fool on the outside. Set up your cards this way to see this journey and compare the keywords to the images on your cards to help make sense of the major arcana. (22 cards)
The minor arcana (56 cards) consists of 4 suits. I've broken them down and colour coordinated them to help you quickly find what you are looking for. Keep in mind, some decks change the names of the suits. I've tried to include as much info as I could to help you draw correlations and see emerging patterns without overwhelming you (I hope).
I hope that you find this guide useful and enjoy the universe of tarot.
