New Year, New Tarot Journey

new year new tarot journey
Cosmic Faery Tarot and Cosmic Journaling Oracle cards

At the beginning of a new year, I always do the same thing: exploring my year card and finding my personal power word to guide me along.

If you are struggling to identify any meaningful goals or intentions, then don’t despair and read my article on this topic instead.

My year card last year was the Chariot, and my power word was ONWARDS.

Looking back at 2016, which was rather challenging at times, I can say that I have come a long way, not lingering in situations that weren’t good for me.

Each time I was hesitating or wondering, my special word ONWARDS reminded me of what I wanted to achieve. It was quite magickal.

This year, my year card is Strength, and my personal power word is CREATE.

Strength embodies qualities such as passion, creativity, resilience and soft power, which I am hoping to utilise and develop during 2017.

My special word CREATE indicates activities I would like to focus on, such as making and creating things, including arts and crafts.

Together with Strength, it also relates to becoming more assertive, ruthlessly expressing my values and opinions openly without fear, which is especially important in today’s divisive isolationist world of Trump and Brexit.

This means that instead of avoiding debate, I will engage in a constructive way and not turn away from people with different opinions.

You cannot CREATE change, if you retreat to the echo room full of like-minded folk.

Strength isn’t about running away from it all; it’s about having the courage (or CREATE-ing it) to face that lion and roar back into his face Smile

cosmic journaling through the year ebook
Coming soon!

With regards to Tarot, CREATE will involve completion of my tarot deck and a new tarot journal ebook, Cosmic Journaling Through the Year.

I will also concentrate on offering more creative tarot journaling resources in order to provide ideas and inspiration to get you into visual and tarot art journaling.

Why creative tarot journaling?

If you love journaling, then you know how therapeutic it can be. If you haven’t really done any regular journaling yet, then perhaps because blank white pages in a notebook don’t inspire you, or you just don’t know where and how to start.

I am at a stage now, where writing down words alone is no longer enough, even if it’s in a pretty notebook. I need to express myself on a visual level, too.

Don’t worry if you think you’re not very good at art. You don’t have to be. The resources I am offering are designed to spice up your tarot journal and even help you create your own unique journal from scratch.

If you are learning the Tarot, then journaling is a powerful tool to help you connect with the cards.

Journaling can help you put your mind in order, relax, loose yourself in words and art, and switch off from an otherwise busy life at least for a while.

Visual journaling with your tarot and oracle cards creates mindfulness and awareness in everyday living.

This is the kind of thing I want to work on this year, helping you to help yourself with creative tarot art journaling, and I hope you are interested in joining me on this venture.

You can download plenty of creative journaling freebies here, where you can also sign up to my newsletter for more free stuff and updates on the latest developments at Cosmic HQ.

And until the end of January, I am offering 20% discount on Cosmic Faery’s Journal workbook to get you into the swing of things straight away (use coupon code CREATE20) on checkout page.

Warmest wishes,

Christiane

Tarot Moon Journal 2017 News

tarot moon journal 2017The Tarot Moon Journal 2017 has finally hit the virtual shelves, waiting to become your trusty companion for the new year.

Since its first edition in 2013, it has come a long way, slowly growing and evolving.

The latest edition includes a mini tutorial on how to include the pip cards in your moon readings.

Each pip card is linked to a zodiac sign, and I show you how you can take the next step and dive a little deeper into your readings with the help of the zodiac and the moon.

If you are new to using astrology in your tarot readings, then the Tarot Moon Journal can help you make a start and take your readings to the next level.

Regarding the lunar phases during 2017, there will be no New Moon in Capricorn (which will happen this year on 29th December), but we will enjoy two New Moons in Leo (July and August).

Each year when I adjust the changing moon phases in the journal, it is fascinating to watch the shifting cycles and energies.

The Tarot Moon Journal 2017 is still priced at only £5.00 (GBP) and also includes a 20% discount voucher for my Tarot Astrology Self-Study Course.

The Cosmic Faery Tarot Major Arcana Special Edition

cosmic faery tarot major arcana special editionA milestone has been reached in the development of my own Tarot deck. It started off as the Tarot of Quotes and evolved into the Cosmic Faery Tarot.

The Major Arcana is now available to buy as a special edition with two bonus cards:

The Cosmic Cat

This card depicts my little familiar of 14 years, who now resides in the spirit world.

I adopted Mondy when she was five years old, and she died at the age of 19, a ripe old age for a cat, which makes me believe that she felt content living her life with me and my family.

After all this time with her, I still sometimes see her from the corner of my eye in the house or in the garden at her favourite spots (where she is also buried), and I know that she is still around.

cosmic faery tarot major arcana bonus cardsWhen this card comes up in a reading, it indicates that a loved one (person or pet), who has passed on, is still watching over you.

They may want you to know something important, so you can pull an extra card to see what message they want to convey.

The Cosmic Cat may also represent your spirit guide or guardian angel, so do pay attention to what they are trying to say to you.

The Happy Bunny

Whatever challenges or strife you are currently battling with, the Happy Bunny indicates that all will be well in the end.

Despite your worries, fears and insecurities, don’t forget to enjoy the little and simple things around you that can lift your spirits even in the darkest of times.

Life can be short, the future is unknown, so make the most of what you have in the present.

The Happy Bunny may also ask you to be vigilant. Protect yourself by not being too trusting and apply some healthy scepticism. You will be okay as long as you keep your eyes open to any harm that may just lurk around the corner.

I hope you enjoy using these two additional cards in your readings. Please do feel free to add your own interpretations to these cards.

For more information on the deck and to buy, please click here.

Warmest wishes,

Christiane

Tarot Of Quotes Update and Special Offer

tarot of quotesI’ve been working on my own Tarot deck since 2012, and the Tarot of Quotes has turned into a challenging labour of love, which is still in the process of being completed.

When you have a look at the Empress above and compare it with the original version, then you’ll know why I haven’t met my self-imposed deadlines over the years.

The Tarot of Quotes has evolved, and only the free downloadable images will keep the quotes on the cards.

I have decided to remove the quotes from the printed version and change a couple of images along the way.

Not many cards are left to do, but heck it’s tough to create the images for them. Getting it right takes time, especially when I’m also working on other projects.

But now that I’m totally in love with my new Empress card, I’m determined to get this deck finished – one day very soon!

In the meantime, it’s Earth Day tomorrow, which also coincides with it falling on a Friday.

Friday is dedicated to Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, who in turn is linked to the Empress in the Tarot.

Although the Empress symbolises the archetypal mother, who on my card is represented by a Madonna and Child statue, she also embodies creativity relating to art, crafts, writing, home-making and gardening.

So in order to celebrate Earth Day, nurture your creativity by ditching electronic devices and work with what Mother Nature has on offer.

Some ideas:

plant flower bulbs, plant a tree, paint motifs on pebbles, bake a cake, make something of twigs, paint, draw, sketch, write poetry, knit or crochet, woodwork, make beeswax candles, pottery…

And for a paper craft project, you can make your own rune set and even print your own oracle deck together with greeting cards, journal inserts and more.

Special Offer:

20% discount on the digital edition of the Cosmic Journaling Oracle & Guidebook until midnight on Sunday, 24th April.

Use voucher code EARTHDAY20 on the Payhip sales page.

And by turning off your electronic devices, TVs and not use the car for the next couple of days in honour of Earth Day, you save on valuable energy and will also reduce your utility bills while enjoying some good old-fashioned creative fun.

Happy Earth Day!

Christiane

The Cosmic Journaling Oracle – Update

cosmic journaling oracle
Cosmic Journaling Oracle

Last week I received the printed version of my Cosmic Journaling Oracle deck, and I’m very pleased with the result!

Does the world need yet another set of oracle cards? I hear you ask Laughing

Well, it’s up to you to decide, but I have created this one to offer you something different:

  • The universal keywords on the cards all refer to one of the Major Arcana cards in the Tarot and are easy to make sense of (unlike card names such as The Hierophant). This way it should work well in readings whatever issue you’d like to explore.
  • The cards have been designed for you to create your own meanings and interpretation for each keyword. Journal about the cards to explore what each keyword means to you, so you can apply it in your readings (hence the word ‘Journaling’ in the name of the deck).
  • There will be a digital version available in addition to a very limited printed edition. With a digital copy of the deck you can print the images as often as you like for personal use – a reading copy on good quality heavy card stock (any kind of paper in quality and colour of your choice) as well as prints on paper to cut out and stick in your journal.
  • You can also use the digital images on your website, if you want to blog about them, use them for collages or other creative projects…
  • The pocket-size cards are cute and ideal to take with you on your travels, to the coffee shop, work, uni, etc…
  • I’m planning to create additional cards (for timing, astrology, etc…), which will be available as separate sets both digitally and in printed form, so you can add to the deck to build a comprehensive system as it suits you best.
  • You can even make card suggestions and request personalised cards.
  • This deck will compliment my Tarot of Quotes, which will be available as digital and printed copy in the same style (except the size of the tarot cards will be larger).

abundance cosmic journaling oracle digitalAs you can see above and in the gallery, the printed version has a black background and border.

However, the digital version will have a white background and a small black border.

The reason for this is to make this deck printer-friendly (won’t be using up all your black ink!) and also allow for the flexibility to choose the colour of paper you prefer.

With a digital copy it is also easier for me to offer you some free bonus cards as I create them. Oh the wonders and delights of the virtual world!

In the meantime, there are two copies available to buy at Cosmic Collection. Buy a printed copy, and you will also receive the digital edition for free, when it is available end of March 2016.

Watch out for my Facebook page competition to win a free printed copy!

If you have any questions regarding the Cosmic Journaling Oracle, please leave them in the comment box below, and I will answer them as soon as I can.

Any feedback or suggestions also very much appreciated!

Warmest wishes,

Christiane

Season’s Greetings – How To Make your Dreams Come True

how to make your dreams come true
Oracle of Quotes

During challenging times, it can be a blessing to stumble across something inspirational, that not only keeps you going but also encourages you to aim higher than you thought possible.

Often it is the simplest piece of advice that can make everything fall into place and lead you into the right direction.

I came across this quote chosen for the Winter Solstice card of my Oracle of Quotes on Tumblr, and it made me change my perspective of the situation I am currently trying to manage.

The time around the Winter Solstice is about new beginnings, rebirth, vitality, illuminations, enlightenment and revelations.

Now is the perfect time to focus on how to make your dreams come true, and really make it happen.

But where do you start?

Well, “ask yourself what is really important and then have the courage to build your life around your answer”.

Change can be overwhelming, but in order to avoid stagnation, it is sometimes necessary to face your fears and recognise your reasons for your reluctance to move forward.

Journalling can help, not only to formulate your goals but also take a step-by-step approach to get to where you want to be.

But instead of using a blank journal, you could try a guided journalling workbook to help you focus.

Check out Leonie Dawson’s 2015 life & biz workbooks, or if you prefer to use the Tarot together with astrology and the moon phases, treat yourself to the Tarot Moon Journal 2015, a gift that will last a whole year, and perhaps even longer depending on how you use it to transform your life…

In the meantime, I wish you a blessed holiday season full of joy, healing and peace.

May you have the courage to make your dreams come true.

Christiane
