Welcome Ruby! We are so happy to have you in our group! Please don't be shy and post away.

We have two tarot draw sites under the "Draws, Readings, and Spread Forum":
1) The "Daily Draw ~ {month} is a place where we share our draws. They can be daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or whenever with as few or as many cards as you wish to share.
2) The "2016 Year and Monthly Significators". This is a card to signify the theme of the month and/or Year. This is a perfect day to choose your theme of the month for March and share it with the group.

I'm happy you have found the Introduction area and introduced yourself.

One I would like you to look at is under the "General Team Discussion Forum" the topic "What would you like to see here?" and add anything that you would like to see and discuss.

Some of the topics haven't been active for a while --- just posting in them will activate them and we can get a discussion going in that topic.

Happy to have your voice with ours Ruby --- Enjoy!

Blessings,
Collien~~~

Welcome aboard, Morfydd!

We could be cousins! I'm 58, use my cards only for my own insight, and don't believe in the supernatural. I also don't have kids, though I kicked my husband to the curb years ago. ;)

I have way more decks than I know what to do with, and keep meaning to sell or give away a bunch of them. One of these days I'll get around to it. ;)

Hope you enjoy it here!

Hi, all. Good to e-meet you.

I have read the cards for myself intermittently for many years. I have a handful of decks, but have mostly used the Rider deck and the Fantasy Showcase deck. I use the cards for insight and inspiration. I don't believe in divination, and don't think the cards show any more than possible futures. *smile*

What else? I'm 56, married, work in health care, don't have kids.

Hope everyone's month is going well.

If it rains again tonight, I can think light-years ahead . . . *Jefferson Starship*

Welcome to our team SPARKLINGME176! Happy to have you join us.

I googled your deck and it is lovely. You must really enjoy using it and being friends with the creator has to help your connection to your deck!

We would be happy to have us share your weekly readings with us in our Daily Draw topic. It is so interesting to be able to learn how each person views the cards they draw. Also sharing any comments you may have in the tarot "journey" we have just started, beginning with the Court cards in "Games, Challenges, Fun, and Humor | Tarot Card Interpretations".

Please add your voice to our topics!

Blessings,
Collien~~~

Welcome Candy! Happy to have you come back and trust you will find us interesting enough to come around more often.

We are just beginning a "journey" through the cards, beginning with the Court cards in "Games, Challenges, Fun, and Humor | Tarot Card Interpretations". I trust you can join us and ad your knowledge to our postings.

Another way to learn is to do the daily (or less) tarot draws and enter it into the Daily Draw of the month. Reading the draws of others and how the interpret the cards is very enlightening. If there are any questions about a draw interpretation --- either your own or someone elses -- leave your question in a post and others will explain for you their thinking.

We all learn from each other and there are no wrong ways to do it so please join in!

Blessings,
Collien~~~

I just found this team, today! FABULOUS! I do reading for myself, usually 1 time a week, using my favorite deck, TAROT OF THE SPIRIT, by Pamela Eakins. Her mother painted the oils for the cards. Came out in 1992. I was SO impressed with this deck, I called her & have been friends ever since!

I'm flying right now, hope to have more time to connect with this team, another day!

Tidings of today: Getting use to the time change emoticon , just like many of you! It's only an hour, but WOW! I sleep or start resting sundown emoticon to sun up emoticon , (I should have been a farmer emoticon ) change is slight, but effects me! U2? emoticon

hi !

I'm candy and also an old member of this team, though not very active. I do tarot readings, but only for myself as a way to selfexplore. I hope with the revival of this team to make more time for myself and my readings and learn from you all, because I still have much to learn in tarot readings.

have a nice day!

Welcome Georgie! We are happy to have you join us. Please speak up and ask your questions and add your knowledge.

Please join our Daily draw. The more people that post the more information and cards we have to learn from. Being part of the Daily draw reminds me to draw for that day and has helped me bring tarot into a more central place in my life.

Looking forward to getting to know you better. emoticon

Hi all. I"m glad to see the team coming alive again. My name is Georgie, I'm 47 with two grown children and a beautiful granddaughter. I've been on this weight loss journey many times, but I finally think I found something that works for me.

I am a novice at Tarot, but have always been interested in it. I have one deck that I love and have had for over 20 years. I don't always remember to pull a daily card, but try my best.

I look forward to learning from everybody.

GEORGIE in Jacksonville

Help me fight Breast Cancer. I will be doing the Breast Cancer Walk again this year. My team is the Pink Dragon Tamers. The walk is October 8, 2016.

Yay! It's so wonderful to see new faces and the building energy here!!!

My name is Karen. I'm an artist building on my dream to bring beauty into the world. I create original art quilts, and own shops at the Carolina and Arizona Renaissance Festivals, as well as show at greyhound events and occasional art/craft shows. I love animals, and currently have a retired racing greyhound and four Italian greyhounds. My greyhound, Tess, travels with me. My four IGlets stay at home with my mother in Maryland when I'm on the road, which is about half the year, but I miss them madly.

I spent 15 years burning out in the computer field, and have loved tarot from an artistic and introspective perspective since I got my first deck at the age of 16.

I'm a breast cancer survivor, diagnosed as stage 2 in December of 2008. Still going strong.

Welcome to all, and I hope I can contribute more often. I do have several decks with me here at the Arizona Renaissance Festival, including my Baroque Bohemian Cats and a couple of Lenormand decks. I also use a lot of tarot apps by The Fool's Dog on my iPad.

Hello!
I am Cassandra. I have been a member of SP since '06 and lost 30lbs within the first 6 mos, since then I have managed to gain about 3/4 of it back. However since my joining I have really grown. I have learned what does/does not work for me. With dedication I know I can lose those pounds again. In the meantime, I have taken an interest in energy work and am fascinated by those who are highly intuitive (I have been told I am but I haven't practiced anything) so if anyone feels the need to share something with me based on my energy, let me know! :)

Hello

My name is Mary. I am married and have 3 grown children and 6 grandkids. Also 2 pomeranians that are spoiled. My daughter and her 3 boys just moved out and back in with her hubby, long story. I am looking forward to getting back to studying the Tarot daily. I am still learning and any tips would be appreciated.

I am now a stay at home wife. Taking care of the house and cooking. Also do gardening, sewing, quilting, crocheting and cross stitch. I actually try any craft that looks interesting to me so I have many supplies in the basement.

Looking forward to learning from you all as we continue on our physical and spiritual journeys.

Mary, Indiana, eastern time

Hello everyone.

I am Regina. I have just offered to help Collien with the team leadership as co-leader and she accepted! Yay.
I was a member of this team months ago but left, why? I had a health issue that needed my full attention, lumps in my breast that could have turned into full blown breast cancer. After months of radiation treatments and finally being able to come off the meds I am getting my health back now and focusing on health and shedding the weight that crept up during my fight in not allowing breast cancer to develop.

I am married (second time around) to a beautiful soul from Puerto Rico who is a retired Army Veteran. We were married in 2009. DH joined the army when he was 16 years old and served for 22 years before retiring. Now he is a school policeman. I work in the legal field (as a paralegal). I have no children from either marriage. I do have 3 kitty kat children and one Old English Bull Dog baby named Max.

My background is Native American "Chippewa" my father was full blood and French Canadian/Irish (Mother's side). I grew up in the old religion, my mother taught me to read the tarot from a very young age (early teens). I just turned 53 on January 26. I am a triple Air Sign. My Sun sign is Aquarius; Rising is Gemini and Moon is Libra. I now walk with the Yoruba Pantheon incorporating the Old Ways into it, as that is where my ancestry lies. My spiritual name is Ekundayo (which is Yoruba) and means "from sorrow to joy". Iyanifa is a title for a female priestess. pronounced E-yah-née-fah. I went through a formal initiation in 1997 and am initiated into the Nana Burkun Society.

My page is set to private because I used to get alot of messages and comments from members who have felt I need to be "saved" (their words not mine) and when I refused they became rude and disrespectful, believe it or not I got some pretty mean messages from some members. I did not want to leave Spark so I just made my page private. If you want to be friends, just message me.

I look forward to getting to know everyone in this group, learning from everyone and also sharing what I know as well as helping each other reach our goals to good health.

Bright Blessings

I think I neglected something when I introduced myself as the new Team Leader. I neglected to introduce myself as a person...

I am Collien and I am delighted to be a crone and be retired. If anyone ever tells you that they have nothing to do after retirement and they are bored, I'm here to tell you that is their choice; in my life --- it isn't so. I have no idea when I had time to work! I tend to relate more to being a Hermit, spending much of my time alone so I can gain knowledge and then go out to share that knowledge. I also am very much the Queen of Swords.

I got my first tarot deck in the early 70s and in the 90s used it to supplement my income for a few months. Tarot is at the center of my life, I do a daily draw and journal it, and use tarot regularly in my life. As an example, if I need to write a post or a letter to someone and I come up blank, I pull a card to help me with the theme of what I need to say --- it has never failed me. I'm *trying* to also institute it in guiding me what I should do next, although I can say that when I need to do that the most, I'm usually overwhelmed and *forget* I have a tool to help me.

I spend time on the web, including facebook and SparkPeople; I sew, quilt, machine embroidery, create designs, garden, and am working on learning to art journal. Continuing education in all the the forgoing as well as metaphysics is also part of my life. I've been part of a local Tarot study group for 2 years and we have gone through decks 2 times. The first time we all went through the same deck and the last time we each had a different deck. We are on a sabbatical right now while people are on vacations and will return to the group in a couple of months.

I live on the West Coast in Salem Oregon. I've been an Oregonian all my life although have done some traveling in the US. I am retired and being a night owl love the freedom to stay up late and sleep in!

That's a bare bones introduction --- now it's your turn.

PS: I'm always forgetting things! I am also a single parent with two grown children. My son is partially disabled and lives with me. My daughter is married lives in the area. She also gave me a granddaughter who is now also married (also living in the area) and I am now the proud great grandma of an 8 month old girl. (hummm --- what else have I forgotten LOL!)
