Unboxing the Green Glyphs Lenormand

I’ve been really into Tarot and Oracle cards for the past 10 years but somehow managed to avoid learning anything about Lenormand cards until now. I know, it’s crazy!

Lenormand is very different from Tarot – yes, it’s still cards with pictures of stuff on them and you read them, but it’s done very differently. I think I avoided it because my brain just couldn’t handle learning another new divination system. But now I’m ready and raring to go!

I decided to start my Lenormand journey with the Green Glyphs Lenormand by James R. Eads (the creator of the Prisma Visions Tarot)…

To buy this deck:

I feel like this is a great deck for those new to Lenormand (like myself!) but also for those who just want a new, gorgeous, high quality Lenormand deck.

The card stock is orgasmic – velvety, matte finish with rose gold edges that don’t flake off sparkly shit on your fingers. The box is really cute and sturdy with a magnetic closure, making opening and closing this box feel oddly enticing. Also, the guidebook is awesome – lots of great basic info on how to use these cards.

I want to know…

Do you read Lenormand? Do you like it more or less than Tarot? And why? Please feel free to share in the comments below πŸ™‚

Sexy Tarot: The Magician

With a little help from my evil twin Veronica, this blog series aims to answer the two burning questions that are probably on every Tarot enthusiasts mind:
1) If this Tarot card were a person, what would they be like in bed?
2) What advice does this card have for you about your sex life?

The Magician

Cosmic Tarot

There’s no beating around the bush here – The Magician is a master seducer of epic proportions!

If The Magician ever crosses your path, hold onto your hat (and your panties!) because you have no idea what you’re in for!

The Don Juan of the Tarot, The Magician almost always succeeds in his seduction because he knows how to captivate you on all four levels of your being – body, mind, emotion and spirit – which most sleazy pick up artists overlook.

This is what gives The Magician his power and edge in the bedroom. Sure, he’s got all the confusing sex techniques down pat but he also knows how to get inside your head and fuck your thoughts – hard! He can manipulate your feelings and spiritual energy until the powerful currents of eroticism overtake you – body and soul. Sound dramatic? It is!

But here’s the catch: while The Magician loves the process of seduction he is utterly bored by the end result – you. He’s not interested in a relationship because those are tedious and hard. He’s just in it for the thrill of the chase!

On some level this guy has low self esteem and each successful seduction gives him a temporary spike in self worth. But it doesn’t last and so off he goes again, penis in hand…

Manipulative and sleazy tactics aside, The Magician has some pretty solid advice for you. He says “if the sex you’ve been having is dull, remember to incorporate all aspects of your being – body, mind, emotion and spirit – into the act. Sex without feeling and spiritual connection is just bits going into bits…and stuff.”

Don’t emulate The Magician, because God only knows this dude’s got issues. But emulate his holistic approach to sexy times – you won’t regret it!

The Magician even recommends some his favorite sex and seduction books (for your reading pleasure):

Sacred Sexuality by Michael Mirdad

Tarot Reading for Sept 16 – 22

7 Tarot Reading Mistakes You’re Probably Making

Contrary to what many free loving, hippy Tarot readers will tell you, there IS a wrong way to read Tarot!

I know, because I’ve done it. Countless times.

When you’re Tarot readings feel shallow, confusing, unhelpful and unsatisfying, it’s not because you didn’t sage hard enough or that you ate too much dairy and it clogged up your aura.

It’s probably because you’re making one (or more!) of these seriously shitty mistakes….

Mistake #1 – Reading too frequently on the same topic

So you’ve been having a fling with a hot 23 year old named Ben. After a night of passion and confessing your love for his chiseled Crossfit bod, he suddenly ghosts you!

Wondering why you haven’t heard from him, you do a reading and ask “why hasn’t Ben texted me?”

But you don’t like the cards that come up, so you make yourself a hot chocolate and look at naked pictures of Orlando Bloom on the internet. But an hour later you bust out your cards again and you ask “why hasn’t Ben texted me?”

I used to do this kind of crap ALL THE TIME. And it would usually happen when I was all in a tizzy over some problem.

Why should you avoid doing this? I think it cheapens the readings and leads to confusing and shallow experiences with your cards. If you don’t love the cards you got, re-doing the reading can go two ways. Either you’ll get similar cards again, which will further frustrate you or you will get totally different cards which will make you doubt the validity of the whole Tarot reading experience.

But I know you – when you’re thirsty for info, you’ll stop at nothing to get it! So here are two sneaky workarounds for this type of situation:

Workaround #1: If you feel unsatisfied with a reading, it’s okay to keep probing. In fact, probe away! But ask different questions. So instead of continually asking “why hasn’t Ben texted me?” every single day, try going deeper with “what do I need to know about this relationship?” orΒ  “what action do I need to take?”

Workaround #2: Instead of reading on the issue itself, do a reading for yourself that will help you feel the way you want to feel. Ask yourself “how do I want to feel in this situation?” Once you’ve figured that out (and yes, it can take a while), then get your cards out and ask “what do I need to do to feel _______?”

I explain this technique in more depth in my article on how to read for yourself when you’re feeling emotional, so you might want to check it out!

Mistake #2 – Treating your Tarot deck like Google

We all Google random, stupid questions from time to time, like where can I buy Chakra tuning forks? Why is my BF repulsed by my high sex drive? Can you wax nipple hair? or How can I fill this dark chasm of loneliness inside my soul?

This is all fine and good but when you start asking your Tarot deck stuff like this, it never ends well. Except for the last question though – that one’s actually pretty deep.

Think of your Tarot deck as a mystical oracle of divine wisdom….or a really good friend. Either way, the more you respect your deck and treat it right, the more helpful and satisfying your readings will be.

But if you pull a card for every inane question that pops into your head, well, it’s just going to piss your deck off!

Remember this: the energy you put into your readings is reflected back to you. If you come at your deck with a frivolous and impatient energy, you’re cards will feed it back to you in the form of a confusing and unsatisfying reading.

Don’t think of your Tarot deck as a tool for getting answers – think of it as a tool for self exploration.

Sometimes readers want their deck to do all the heavy lifting, but it never works like that. Once you ask a question and draw a card, don’t expect instant crystal clarity! You may need to do some contemplating, some soul searching and some creative thinking to figure out what message your cards have for you.


Mistake #3 – Not setting an intention for the reading (or having a murky question)

I’ve lost count of all the times I’ve sat down to do a reading for myself with an overly vague question. It usually happens when I have a desire for clarity and comfort but I’m not entirely sure what the issue is and I’m too lazy to figure it out before drawing cards.


This is a big mistake because it usually leads to a murky and confusing reading. You’re Tarot cards crave direction and the clearer you are about why you’re doing this reading, the better your reading will be.

Before doing a Tarot reading, ask yourself this: what do I want to get out of this reading?

Do you want fresh ideas? Clarity? A new perspective? Comfort? Peace? Secret smutty info?

This will set the tone and help you create an intention for the reading. This makes all the difference!!!


Mistake #4 – Not sitting with a card long enough

These days everyone’s in a big fucking hurry all the time. I actually know a guy who listens to self-help podcasts on fast forward so the voices sound like chipmunks and he can get all the self-help he needs in half the time. I know, right? He needs help.

And so do you….if you are the type of Tarot reader who spends only a few seconds contemplating a card before zipping on to the next one, that is!

One of the biggest sins committed by Tarot readers everywhere (including me) is that we assume we already know what a tarot card means without truly diving into it.

We’re in such a big rush to draw our conclusions and hurry on to the next thing that we don’t take the time to just sit with a card and let it reveal it’s secrets to us. This is a big mistake!

Everyday Witch Tarot by Deborah Blake

The other day I asked my Tarot deck “what do I need to focus on right now?” and I got The High Priestess. I immediately thought oh, right. I need to focus on developing my intuition and paying attention to my dreams.

But then I sat with The High Priestess for a little longer and just gazed at her and when I did this I noticed that behind her were stacks of books and in front of her was a crystal ball that she was meditating with. The card seemed to be saying turn your back on books (aka other peoples ideas) and focus on your own experience (aka intuition). I also noticed that the cat on the card was pawing playfully at a bag of runes – this detail seemed to be conveying that I should be playful about exploring my psychic side and not take it too seriously.

When you sit with a card for a little while, specific nuggets of advice and wisdom reveal themselves!

Mistake #5 – Not turning inward

Or…immediately looking a card up in your Tarot book or online.

Most of us are so used to turning to some outside authority for answers – a book, the internet or another person – that turning inward can feel almost unnatural and unsettling.

In fact, I’m willing to bet both my left AND right ovaries that the entire success of the entertainment industry is dependent upon our rampant avoidance of our inner selves, serving as the perfect distraction. Why traverse the universe within when you could kill a couple hours watching Bachelor in Paradise?

God, I could ramble on and on….

But back to Tarot! Within every Tarot card is an opportunity to turn inward. Think of a Tarot card as a portal or doorway into your inner universe – an invitation from your soul to plumb its starry depths!

For example, let’s say you’re pissed at your live-in boyfriend because he leaves his B.O. laden t-shirts and socks draped over your red velvet chaise lounger. So you ask your Tarot cards “how can I get my boyfriend to pick up after himself?”

Universal Waite Tarot, published by US Games

Then you pull the Seven of Swords, which at first makes no fucking sense. The Seven of Swords is about deceit, being sneaky and abandoning the group.

So you consider these things and you look at the imagery – a man tiptoeing away from a tent village, clutching a bunch of swords – and you dive inward!

Where in your life are you tip toeing? What do you feel you need to be sneaky about? What do you long to get away from? What does this card remind you of?

And now the answers are obvious. You’ve been tip-toeing around your BF’s messiness because you want to avoid seeming like a bitch. You’re being sneaky because you want to influence him to pick up his mess without having to confront him directly. And of course you want to escape from this caretaker role, always cleaning up after him. It all makes sense! These are the things you must overcome if you want things to change.

But what if you’d just looked this Tarot card up in a book? You may have gotten a few ideas but the experience wouldn’t have been as personal or meaningful.


Mistake #6 – Forgetting to “make a plan” after the reading

Pop question: what do you do once you’ve finished a reading? Take notes? Record your reading somewhere? Forget about it?

If you’re like me, you probably just forget about it. I feel terrible saying this, but most of the time when I finish doing a reading for myself I think wow, that was really illuminating! and then immediately forget all about it.

But if you’re NOT like me, this is what you’d do: you’d take the advice and insights you gleaned from the reading and you’d make a plan to put that advice into action.

A few months ago I did a reading for myself where I asked how can I feel more inspired and creative in my work? I pulled a bunch of cards and each one had a brilliant suggestion for me.

The Three of Swords said confront your heartache! The Ace of Cups said do Reiki on yourself each day to get the energy moving! The Hierophant said sign up for that class you’ve been thinking about taking!

At this point I could have whipped out a pen and paper and started writing down action steps, such as 1. sign up for that class and 2. schedule in a Reiki session for myself each morning, etc.

Did I do this? NO! But if I had, who knows where it would have taken me and what transformations may have occurred as a result.


Mistake #7 – Not signing up for my 4 week Tarot course!

7 Tarot Reading Mistakes You’re Probably Making

Sexy Tarot: The Fool

With a little help from my evil twin Veronica, this blog series aims to answer the two burning questions that are probably on every Tarot enthusiasts mind:
1) If this Tarot card were a person, what would they be like in bed?
2) What advice does this card have for you about your sex life?

The Fool

Rider Waite Tarot, Published by US Games Systems, Inc.

The Fool is both moronic and deliciously refreshing! He approaches life (and sex) with an adventurous fearlessness which kind of makes him an idiot – but in a hot way.

What would The Fool be like in bed? Let me put it this way…

Have you ever had sex with someone who always does the exact same thing, in the exact same way, over and over again, never deviating from the monotonous routine? Someone who balks at the suggestion of trying something new?

The Fool is the exact opposite of that!

The Fool embraces sexual adventures and isn’t scared of being vulnerable or looking stupid. In other words, he doesn’t live in fear of losing his boner or feel like a twit when he’s role playing in a cheesy pirate costume. Life is too short to be sexually self conscious!

Despite past rejections and mishaps, The Fool remains open, flexible and optimistic, both emotionally and sexually. This is a dude who is not afraid of taking big risks in the boudoir, whether he’s confessing his most bizarre kink or holding eye contact for longer than two seconds.

And did I mention he’s up for anything? He’s like an ardent (and sometimes naive) tourist in Sexytown, yearning to see all the sights and become fluent in the language of lust. Basically, he’s someone you’re gonna wanna bang.

Guess what? The Fool has some valuable advice for you:

He says stop being so uptight in bed – let your hair down and let go of inhibitions. Ignore your fear of having your partner laugh at your weird sex fantasies. So what?!!

Be willing to take some erotic risks. Yes, sometimes you end up with a scraped knee, a broken heart and/or genital herpes. That’s life. Get over it.

Like a horny Columbus on the high seas of eroticism, be willing to explore, embark on sexy adventures and discover new things about yourself. You’ll be glad you did.

Tune in next week when I reveal the oozing charisma of The Magician!
