Beauty Amongst Deadwood

I love the flow of the wood in the lower left-hand quadrant as it once had lived and now has died. I enjoy the fact that despited that new flowers are growing once again amongst the deadwood bringing new life.

The photograph was taken in the Interlake Region of Manitoba just west of Riverton.

Three Of Us

These three beautiful pink roses represent the three of us in our immediate family. I love the dew that has formed on these flowers while late in the autumn in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Back and Forth

Back And Forth

These flowers are both looking forwards and backwards at the same time. I find it unusual that they are not all facing the same direction as they would towards the sunshine but they were indoors so I guess that is why they are growing towards different light sources.

I do not know what type of flowers they are but they are pretty. Perhaps, someone could enlighten me?

Old Sarum

Old Sarum

Old Sarum dates back to 3000 BC. It is one of the earliest settlements in the Salisbury area of England. I took photos of the ruins and enjoyed the flow of the old rock of the structures and the flow of the green hills as contrast. The steeple of the new Salisbury church and community is seen in the distance.

Flower Boat

This is a photograph of a lonely boat who has been forgotten in time. It is surrounded by nature as the flowers pop up all around. I think it is interesting and beautiful how nature always comes back. It was taken at Little Deer in Manitoba, Canada.

Book Review: The Big Book of Angel Tarot

Big Book of Angel Tarot

Big Book of Angel Tarot

Book: “The Big Book of Angel Tarot: The Essential Guide to Symbols, Spreads and Accurate Readings” by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

This book is compendium of information that goes along with the Angel Tarot Card Deck. The beginning of the book, reviews the history of tarot and how this deck compares to the traditional Rider-Waite deck. These cards are positive in nature while still dealing with events in a person’s life that may be perceived as negative or difficult to deal with. For this reason, the cards do not have a reverse meaning. If the cards are upside down, you simply put them the right direction and read the reading based on what has been written symbolically, according to the picture itself and based on both angel numbers and astrology.

The Major Arcana is now the Dreamer’s Journey. You follow him/her as they progress through life until you reach the World along with Archangel Michael. Each Major Arcana card has an Archangel attached to it which gives you further information as to how the card works in the spread or reading.

The Minor Arcana has pip cards which are the numbered cards and the court cards which include the Page, the Knight, The Queen and the King. The Ace starts off each suit. The suits have been changed to Fire, Water, Air and Earth.

The Fire has dragons and wands in it, Water has cups in it plus merpeople, Air has unicorns in it (swords in previous tarot decks) and Earth has fairies and gold coins in it.

I studied this book by having physically organized my cards according to the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana in the order they are presented in the book. Then it took time, however, I studied the card, then read the reading, reflected on the card some more and paused to think about it all. Then, I proceeded to the next card. In time, the whole deck and book were finished.

My head is now full of imagery, stories and symbolism. It is an appropriate book to have as a reference guide to go along with the Angel Tarot Cards. The little guide book that comes with the deck are good for basic information and then this big book gives you far more detail. This deck obviously took into consideration a lot of factors.

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
