My tarot cards feel lighter.

Granted, I don't take care of my cards, they're the Vertigo tarot cards, and they just stay on top of my table in their dark velvet pouch but other than that they're terribly exposed. It's been at least 2 months since I last used them but I did sleep with the deck under my pillow to get them recharged so to speak

The pack is complete, though. So... Or maybe it's just me. Hmm, Constantine, are you screwing with me?

Also taking this opportunity to ask those who are more knowledgeable for tarot card care tips. Google is helpful, direct comments are way nicer to me >3

...'sup, LJ? It's been ages. I'm 26 years old now. Had my birthday with my sister in Singapore last August 22. Pictures and proper narration (lol) are coming up. I'm just generally bad with keeping my life in check, so I forget.

I owe people comments. Those will come. Eventually. OTL

... all I'll be telling you is basically about work, so I'll stop there >_< Although I've been Making Plans to Make Short Escapes During Weekends! XDDD Short trips and stuff.


You can't go wrong with redheads :3

Good plans, those are! Make use of them to the fullest!

Eh, this and that. Currently still at Mysterious Place Of Hiatusing Reasons, but it seems I can currently go home twice a week. Trudging along as it goes.

There is truth to that.

Happy belated!

Also which pack do you own, the original release or the re-issued pack? Completely unrelated to the more spiritual aspect, I think the re-issue was made with lighter than card stock paper so if they've been exposed they could be getting older is all?

The re-issued one. Aaah, I see. ... I think it's the spiritual aspect of it. Though God knows I've been bouncing off walls as of late ahahah... Figres. Good to know, though!

I've read that the re-issue works better as an actual card deck. The lighter weight paper is easier to shuffle and palm. I have the original release and they are hard to handle so I just keep them as something pretty to look at ;-;

S-so get the re-issue to be the usable deck? X3 What deck do you use?

It was definitely better than the 25th, which was spent handing out flyers and manning a booth in a university during their Biology week X3 The best so far, because I got to spend it in another country and, nicest of all, with my sister ♥

Thank you ^^

Speaking of tarot cards:

I need to poke you about stuff, if you know things. Been meaning to structure a writing project around tarot, but my lack of knowledge upsets me. :\

Poke away! :3 I know things, but I can also point you to people who know way more than I do!

maybe your feelings for the tarot card has changed. when you say that you haven't touched it for two months, did it feel like you didn't have the urge to learn or you are not having any connection with your tarot?

as for tarot care, just put them in a nice container. suggestions are cloth-like pouches. mine is in a shawl. the tarot's home should be something that could preserve its energy. :)

I didn't touch it for two months because I was al;ksjdf;laksdf too busy with work and didn't think of it for that long .__. The urge to learn is... still there, slightly (aaah, alam mo namang tamad ako xP ) and I am very fond of that set, because it's Vertigo and I can relate/identify the ones in the major arcana.

Lately I've slept with the deck under my pillow, because I felt that I've let it sit stale for too long and somehow my... energies have left the deck, so to speak? is that right?

Ah, I already have the deck in a black pouch. Should I wrap it again? In a shawl this time?

I've been alright! Just relaxing and writing and partying. :3 How was your trip to Singapore?

On the note of Tarot cards, I just keep mine in my closet. >> /doesn't really do much with them D|

Oh, you party girl you~ :3 ... I want to see more pics of you in party mode ^^

My trip to Singapore was great! ^^ 3 days aren't enough, really. I wanted to see more. Pics and account of said trip will be up. Soon. Eventually >_<

xP Ah! But you have a deck! What deck do you have? A-and use them every once in a while!

I shall post as soon as I have pics~! ♥

Yay! \o/

Uh, the deck I have is Celtic mythology. It's all very pretty actually. XD It's just that . . . I never use them. ^^;; But I keep them because they're pretty. XD

Heh, I know the feeling ^^ The first time I saw the Vertigo deck I was afraid that I wouldn't use it altogether because I just... wanted to collect it, but naaaah, I had to use it ^^

I wish I had the patience to learn. It's like . . . so complex to lay out a spread and all that. XD

There are readings that involve up to two and three cards o/ And as you learn the meanings of the cards themselves, you'll eventually get the hang of it. So start slow. It'll be amazing :3

I did not know that. D| Guess I'll look at the internet for how to read them. :3

speaking of which ... I still would very much appreciate a reading. If you don't mind that is ^_^v

here's to hoping the offer is still available for the taking *crosses fingers*
