My friend Lisaann has a store full of fun spiritual items, a lot of them for kids, called Whimsy. Right now, it only lives at Second Sunday on Main and other places where she’s doing readings.
At the SSOM in August, I took a break and went shopping at Whimsy, which was a table and a half of Tarot decks, books, magic wands, kids’ toys and other neat stuff. The other half a table was where she was doing her readings. I ended up with 5 new decks, with lots of good energy.
I always let new stuff sit on my wonderful window still until they’ve been through a full moon – cleaning them up, as it were – getting rid of all the energy that isn’t mine. Luckily, the full moon was two days later. I’ve already read with 2 of them, found them easy to talk to, and had a good time.
Did readings for the Dream Group with the Vanessa Tarot. It comes in a cute little metal box, and is inspired by contemporary pop culture – i.e., today’s swingy, sassy, fun and smart women characters. Women CEOs, reporters, moms, beauty queens, performers, spies, daredevils. My fellow dreamers loved it, and the messages were easy and clear.
Took Tarot of the Gnomes along to lunch at Ambar with a friend yesterday. The card names are in Italian, with English, German, French and Spanish translations. Very cute, lots of good energy – and, like Vanessa, small enough to fit in my small purse.
Still have three more to break in: Fairy Tale Tarot, which ranges broadly in its choice of stories – not just Western Europen, but Asian, Russian – and many tales I don’t know, which is even more fun. The Whimsical Tarot, made for kids, though you’ll love it to – simple and easy fairy tale themes in a positive vein. And The One World Tarot – I love the name – which includes some sacred geometry, some natural symbols, some photographs. I’ll wait and see how it reads – could be great, might not be.
Always fun to play with new toys! Email me if you’d like to be in touch with Lisaann about Whimsy.
