1,000 Page Views

Hello, Everyone! I'm very excited to say that yesterday I reached 1,000 page views on my blog! About 800 of them were from this month. In order to celebrate, I will be giving away a free reading at the end of the month (in just a little over a week). I'm working out the details and will have them up by the end of this weekend. I am also working on some exciting new projects around Tarot, including a beginner's e-booklet that will be available to new subscribers. So for the next day or two, I may not be around my blog. But rest assured, I am working hard on some great things for all of my dear readers.

Today's card (and perhaps tomorrow's and the next day's) is the 8 of Pentacles. This card is all about hard work, starting projects, and seeing them through to completion. No, this card did not just show up from a random draw. I intentionally chose it in order to bring its energy into my next few days (incidentally, intentional card choice will be the subject of an article I am writing for Tarosophist International Magazine).

These cards are from (in order from left to right) The Gendron Tarot, Tarot of the Sweet Twilight (English and Spanish Edition), and Tarot of the Magical Forest (English and Spanish Edition). I love to do comparative spreads with different decks. It is always so interesting what you get out of the same card from different decks. Which card sings to you? Which card makes you cringe? Different decks definitely evoke different feelings, and it is fun to find out which ones do what, and especially why - although sometimes you never can quite figure out why!

The 8 of Pentacles reminds us to increase the craftsmanship of our work, especially by paying attention to details. It reminds me of the saying, "anything worth doing is worth doing right." Putting in your best effort leads to an increased level of satisfaction and happiness, not to mention an increase in your skills and abilities. After all, practice makes perfect.

So I will take the next several days to practice, practice, practice, and I will see you all very soon.

  1. ohhhh... I needed to read of this card today! I am so glad you visited my blog and commented and drew me right back here.

    Congrats on your 1,000 views and hey, I would love a free reading... please enter me for the drawing... (crossing fingers and now, getting back to work!)

  2. Hey Julie! Thanks for the comment. The free reading contest will be for new subscribers to my blog (who subscribe by e-mail). I'll open it hopefully by Sunday night, so don't subscribe just yet.

    I'm only delaying it because I want all new subscribers to also get my free little Beginning Tarot e-book. Still working out the kinks in that, but it will be up soon!

  3. Visiting from the 'Getting to Know You Blog Hop'. Great site!

  4. I left this for you on a post of another blog, the blog post was about hanging with friends. Wanted to make sure you see it.

    Amethyst, pray about this, although I’m sure you have been. It took me until after my college years to find really really great friends. Now that I have it’s blessed my life in so many ways. I used to pray for a one good woman friend and now I have so MANY! Some are my age, some older, some younger, but I get something special out of each relationship. Don’t give up on this dream :)
