So, I am working my way through Alice B Grist’s book called, Dirty & Divine.
Keep in mind, I have only read up to the initial exercises…because I am working through the journey with my deck, The WildWood Tarot.
I don’t really know what I expected from the exercises. I should know better, having watched my own work and gone through the work I have created.
It’s a simple thing, but there is such power in simple.
I have a lot to learn.
Now, for this journey, I put away the guidebook that came with my deck. I have nothing but Alice’s book and my deck…and the case that I keep the cards in.
The Wildwood Tarot is not based upon the Rider-Wait format…and there is so much for me to discover as I work through this deck.
For example, as I am beginning this journey today…my first card, the 0 of the Major Arcana is…The Wanderer….
A young padawan stands on a precipice, a rainbow cast over the fog that lay in the chasm between the seeker and the other side – the other side is full of twisted trees. The forest looks dark, everything growing in on everything else, odd shapes drifting into awareness but never coming fully into focus. Yet, there is a break in the tree tops and the sun shines in. This card begs you—take a leap of faith…and who am I to say no to that?
