The Quest Tarot

I have decided that the tarot deck to use for my Tarot Study is The Quest Tarot. This is a deck and companion book, The Compass, created by Joseph Earnest Martin. He created this deck after a renowned psychic asked him what was stopping him from doing it. Once he figured that out, the rest was his journey on this path.

I love this deck. I have had it for several years and have even done readings with it. I have never taken the time to do an in-depth study of each card in order though. This is a semi-traditional deck that also includes astrology signs, I-Ching symbols, has a Hebrew letter, a yes/no feature, the gemstone influences and the gemstone association and a rune symbol. Taking the time to study each of these cards on a deeper level will also help me to learn and understand better other aspects of divination as well.

I am excited to embark on this journey for my own learning, but also to bring you with me. Perhaps this will be a deck you decide you want to look into, or if you aren’t a tarot reader, maybe this will interest you, or if not perhaps give you some personal insight into something else.

Here is the blank card along with the front of the Comanion book.

Don’t mind the couch. It is time to get a new one. I will be taking a picture of each card as I go through, so you can see the things I refer to in my study, as well as just enjoy the art.

Today, for uplifting as I made the decision on the deck, I mixed lemon and wild orange essential oils in the diffuser. The house smells citrusy and yet you feel as if you could go to the moon and back. Uplifted and energetic…that’s what those will do for you.

I don’t have my own daily tarot card as I have done 11 readings for others in the past 2.5 days and I helped my son with some rune readings. I would leave you with the blank card. Let today be the day for reflection.

So…..

It happens.  I missed a day. I was doing so well too! However, I have decided not to worry about it.  I realized it right around 11 p.m. last night and decided I was too tired to type something up.  It had really been one of those days.

I am a reader.  I love books.  The issue when I read is that I tune everything and everyone out.  I get so focused that I forget the real world is happening.  I had taken a break from reading last week to see what it felt like.  Go figure, dishes got done, things happened with the hubby, grades were inputted, litter was cleaned and the blog was going strong.  Yesterday, I fell into a book series, actually two.  This means I am not up moving, I forget to do the things I need/want to do and I just read.  Not really healthy, at all.

This also leads to short tempers, miscommunications (I’m not actually listening when people are talking), arguments and of course nothing happening.  By 11 p.m. I was truly wondering who would miss me if I wasn’t here today. Hubby and I had argued and then he left for work (early) so we didn’t really resolve, although we did text, my oldest child can’t make Mother’s Day, I did something to upset the daughter and she told the youngest  she “needs space”, although I can’t actually recall talking with her recently, and of course the argument.

Tears were my companion as I went to sleep last night, I woke up multiple times in the middle of the night, sometimes with anxiety, sometimes still crying.  Good news, here I am today.  Kids have projects to work on, AP exams to review for and the end of the year to look forward to.  My resolution, get through the day.

I pulled a tarot card today (something else I had not done yesterday), got the 3 of Pentacles again. Guess I need to be looking at the amazing kids I have, let them be busy in their own lives and minds, and figure out the new journey in front of me.  I must have done something right, 3 of Pentacles says it all paid off in a positive way.

Today the oils are Breathe Easier and a Citrus Cream Blend.  Happy scents, happy moods and just maybe a happy day!

Have a great one…I promise to get back to informative stuff soon.
