I’m being stalked by a number. No matter what I do, I can’t seem to stop seeing 22’s. License plates, clocks, receipt numbers — basically anywhere a number could be, there it is. Staring me in the face. Unignorable. A lot of free spirited folks like myself might call this an angel number or Universal sign. Like the numbers on Lost. Perhaps they function as a Matrixian code for our brains to stay on our true paths? I don’t know. It’s not my place to question such matters. Zen.

One place this number appears to me is in the tarot deck. Your traditional set is comprised of 78 cards, the first 22 of which are called the major arcana. Each arcanum is an archetype we all live at certain points of our lives and it is at the very core of being able to excel at cartomancy — if you can’t understand the many hats we wear as humans, you can’t connect deeply with the energies in the spread before you and give a good reading.

Tarot To-Go // Mother’s Day Edition

In honor of all the moms in the Universe, this week we’re focusing on the women of one of the most popular tarot decks out there!

The Rider-Waite deck was first issued in England in 1910 and is probably what most people think of when they hear the word “tarot.” However! The use of illustrated cards like these can be dated back to 1397 when King Charles VI of France declared the use of playing cards illegal, excepting holidays.

And today is a holiday. So here we go.

What are our mothers? Well. For starters, they’re our Queens…

Tarot To-Go // April 17 – April 23

There’s been a lot of nutty energy the last couple of weeks — life’s been one crazy roller coaster! Emotional highs and lows coupled with some major changes in our foundations have got many of us looking at clean slates. Basically every planet but Mars and Uranus was either in retrograde, about to enter it, or going direct which really amplified the WTF vibe. But I have great news, gang — this week is going to rock!

Let’s have a peek.

In the beginning of the week LOVE BEGINS. This is a fresh week and a clean slate, too, and the changes we have been afraid of making will start to look like hidden gems. If we can learn to love that which we resist, we’ll be golden! Just remember what The Rolling Stones said; you can’t always get what you want but if you try sometimes you might find you get what you need.

Tarot To-Go — Full Moon in Libra

This week I’m writing Tarot To-Go from my new Samsung Galaxy whilst swinging in a hammock between the branches of a fantastic tree down here in Big Pine Key, Florida. I’m also testing out the low-light camera. I’m pretty impressed!

The Nomadic Mermaid has been resting her fins at one of her most favorite campgrounds. It’s at mile marker thirty-three — that’s how all the locals here give directions at least. The Keys are quirky and frequent readers will find I wind up down here a lot. This string of islands is my favorite home-off-the-road because it’s an entire community that comes together and lives in harmony around nature with the common goal of preservation as climate change threatens to turn them into the next Atlantis. But also? It could be mostly because of these incredible little deer that roam the mangrove forests and rocky shorelines.

I did a bad by feeding them but they were so hard to resist!

Home — for now at least!

Because of the lack of wheels, I needed the help of my friend Margo and her fiance, pictured above chilling in my hammock, to go on this current Nomadventure (she actually makes some pretty killer and cheap eats you can follow on Instagram @themildlyvulgarvegan).

Tarot To-Go // New Moon in Aries

Happy New Moon in Aries, Oddballs! This youthful fire sign is the first to appear on the zodiac wheel making this New Moon a sort of astrological New Year; the vernal equinox this week made promises of life and growth so as a collective, the proverbial plate has been wiped clean. Whatcha gonna do with this fresh cycle?

To get us grounded for the uncharted newness ahead, I’ve used a New Moon tarot spread from Ethony. She’s a veritable well of information on the intuitive arts and you can tap into some of her knowledge at her website, www.ethony.com

So. What’s ahead?

CARD #1 – THE CHANGE

TRANSFORMATION is on the docket for this new lunar cycle — some area of your life will have to fall apart for your new one to fall together. For me? I got into a car accident this week, leaving the Kia Soul I was working and living nomadically out of completely totaled. Don’t resist the abrupt changes as they landslide right into your life at the most inconvenient time — this is your fresh slate! Don’t waste it.

This past Tuesday, I was asked by one of my newfound friends to come check out her stand up routine at a nifty local spot’s weekly Open Mic Night. I’m always down for a laugh so I dragged my sister with me for a good old chuckle fest, after which my tarot reading skills were revealed and an army of comedians lined up to see their futures. It was intense!

Some of my clients that evening embraced the magic whole hog without hesitation. Others were resistant non-believers who all left the table with a new perspective on the cards. By the time I was finished? Minds had been blown.

“So you got all of what you said just by looking at the six cards I picked out at random?”
“I’m freaked out here, how did you do that?!”
“You touched on worries of mine I’ve never even said out loud!”
