Tarot, Oracle And Other Card Pulls For The Month Of August


Please remember, I am offering the names of the cards themselves here and nothing more.

I started this practice, working with these card pulls, using mixed media art, collaging, writing, and any other number of things, but I began by using the images on the cards. One day I wasn’t feeling up to dragging out my deck and finding a specific card, so I simply worked with the name of the card. The words before me.

That was magical…and it allowed things to surface for me to work with that I would not have been able to access because my linear process would have simply taken the path I normally take, rather than allowing me to look into different avenues…and I thought I would share that here with you.

I do give plenty of information so that you can seek out the image of each card, if you so choose.

Without further ado, here are this months’ cards:
