Day 26 of #tarotnerdschallenge hosted by @shonna & @newagehipster333 What should I take away from this week – long reading? 6 of Swords I am definitely going through a rite of passage of sorts and rowing to calmer shores. . After years of being sick, finally finding a procedure to help, and now getting used to being “normal” again, I’m taking life by the bull of its horns, and making up for lost time. . I grew up so differently than most children; at 7 years old, I began ice-skating with a pair of $5 skates, my mom bought me for my birthday. Within 6 months, we were buying $80 skates, taking private lessons, and beginning to compete. At the end of my ninth year, my custom made skates (with blades) were $1000 (and this was the ’85). In addition, I also danced ballet for 12 years (on point for 5) and jazz for 19 years. . I was a strong, independent woman, who took risks and had big dreams. Then I got sick and in a blink of an eye, it was all gone. The one remaining factor – my boyfriend of only one year (now husband), who stuck by me; I had friends who didn’t. Now we’ve been together 21+ years and he still continues to make me laugh and always knows how to make me feel better when I’m feeling down. We are definitely soul-mates and I am so lucky to have found him. . He’s been so supportive of all I do, including the Tarot. I bought my first deck, the mythic tarot, back in ’95. But I wasn’t able to pick it up again, until late ’12. The Tarot has opened up a whole new world for me. I was never one to go to ‘chat rooms’ or the like, but in ’15, I joined tarotforum.net and I loved it and I haven’t looked back. Last year joining ATA and then TABI. Now I’m writing a blog and joining SM. I’ve made friends all over the world and have found the Tarot community to be so fantastically supportive. . So here I am, rowing away from the past and beginning to feel like my old self and who knows what the future holds. I’m excited and can’t wait to find out. 🦋🌸🎉 #tarot #tarotnerd #tarotreadersofinstagram #divination #tarotreading

Day 29: Tarot Books
Day 29 of #tarotnerdschallenge by @shonna + @newagehipster333 Tarot Books I suffer from Bibliophilia 🤣I probably have at least another hundred (physical including Kindle). Although, I do like to buy used books (see the stickers). It's my little way of helping to save our 🌳❤️#tarot #tarotnerd #tarotcommunity #tarotreadersofinstagram #tarotbooks
Day 30: Tarot Journal
Day 31 – Tarot Selfie
Day 31 of #tarotnerdschallenge by @shonna + @newagehipster333 Tarot Selfie – if you read my post from Day 25, you'll understand why I need to hide a bit behind the cards…actually it felt good to put a pic out there. . I want to thank Shonna + Vic for starting this challenge 😘I had planned on joining IG but not for awhile. I'm so glad I didn't wait. I've been having so much fun; meeting all of you, sharing with each other, learning new things, taking fun pics and the challenge itself was introspective and therapeutic. I'm sending all of you hugs and kisses! 🤗🤗🤗💋💋💋 . I chose to have the World in my hands and the 2C to represent the relationships I've made here. Lots of love! #tarot #tarotnerd #intuition #tarotcommunity #tarotreadersofinstagram
