Throwback Thursday: Tarot’s Holy Book Part 1


I’ve written before about how Tarot contains a holy book that charts the journey of a human soul through all the stages and experiences of life. I call these cards Life Lessons Tarot. But they’re better known as the Major Arcana.

The Blessing of A Selfish Mom

I often talk about the blessing of having a selfish mom. Or rather, mum, as we refer to female parents here in Australia. This goes against conventional wisdom of course.
