Pinned toot

i'll need these soon, when i get to forging stronger connections with my neglected decks (after the current tarot projects, of course) so might as well share - my favorite tarot exercises from dusty white's book "the easiest way to learn the tarot - ever"

preferably you'd go through the whole deck for each exercise
1. describe what you see in the picture of each card, can be short, whatever jumps out at you
1.a. what does it remind you of, personally, culturally etc draw connections
(1/?)

slowly filling in the first page the journal opens to - the map of a survivors' settlement

first snow in ! skye is camping and she's one day early for me to invite her :' (i think? alfonso's in boxes)

i also get like.. Very Tired. sometimes it's more clear, like i had a headache and even after the painkillers kick in/it goes away after the whole day, i'm left fuzzy and exhausted, falling asleep at 7pm. other times it's more ?? like i'm hanging out with the cat on the kitchen floor and just can't remain vertical anymore. twice already i just lay down then and there for 10-15mins. ??

what the heck is happening to my knees recently :/ i have some hypermobility in the knees and elbows but it's never been a problem. now the knees want to kind of bend backwards quite often, painfully too. and i can't bend them too much in the proper direction either w/o pain. it's nuts, i used to stim by putting pressure on my joints, now i have to like.. Walk Carefully if i'm carrying something, just in case. and put all the heating jelly on them. why??

also: depth year means going through the whole tarot playbook. with one deck? split between a couple? sigh. decisions, decisions. luckily i can use the cards to help decide lol. recuuuursion

and how did youtube know to fill in "zombie apocalypse ambience"? i thought it'd be a long shot but no, there's plenty. maybe i'll listen to that when working on new weird journal? (gave it a closure today, and started on the front page. ideas for the big sheet of paper - a map drawn using the majors, i think this is from "the tarot playbook" by lynda cowles)

but listen - creepy ambience. that's such a good backdrop to like.. pathworking with the bohemian gothic tarot, or the murder of crows 👀

i come from a no-shoes-indoors culture, boosted in my case to a no-socks standard due to autistic preference but this country has beaten me. not sure how they haven't heard of insulation yet but i have voluntarily acquired a pair of house slippers. have to say i don't completely hate it. let's see what my joints say about this weird heel. why are the floors so cold tho!! what's under that lino??? is it because there's no central heating? adskjf;s

also i need to accept that i have too many ideas to execute (at least they exceed my capabilities) and will need to make more conscious decisions about what to tackle without setting myself up for failure

i *did* finish the monthly tarot challenge tho! first time ever. it was interesting but i don't think i'd do it again, it's just too much. feels like all i do is introspect and overthink even without that. but i might collect some challenges as sources of tarot journaling prompts, maybe to do a few once a week if i feel like it, already saw a good one floating around

guys, my abundance of decks makes it so hard to concentrate on any single one of them. the tarot de luz marseille keywords project is barely progressing, i've only done 23 cards. maybe i can finish it this year still but dang it's hard. this is exactly what i'm hoping depth year will fix - getting familiar with them all, so nobody's shouting out for attention. but also: focus 😫

Does anyone have any tips or recommendations on how to learn to play the #piano?

I have finally accepted the fact that I need to get a bit more organized in my approach to this instrument. With the current covid situation I can't go for in-person lessons though. Any suggestions?

it's frosty! i'm excited. i've only ever experienced urban - piles of snow or straight up mud. this is really pretty

not sure if this is worth posting yet, but i'm doing something truly atrocious 💚 a survivor's journal?? of sorts?? a companion to Tarot Z. who knows, maybe i'll finish it!

had a physically challenging day today 😔 here's more october creepies

brain isn't focusing today so far, so i've gone for something crafty and trimmed the borders of the nicoletta "tarot". maybe it'll be a nice oracle deck. roughly two episodes of gbbo and one cup of tea. wondering if i should edge them but trying to find a color that goes with both the fronts and the badly matched backs is a challenge
