I have been reading cards for about 10 years and I have been collecting decks just as long.   I am new to the community and to live journal in general but I love discussing readings and cards.

These are the decks I own.
The Universal Wight( which is just a more colorful version of the Rider Wight deck)
The Osho Zen Tarot
The Oracle of the Dreamtime
The Phoenix Cards
The Goddess Oracle (Isis is missing though)
The Shapeshifter Tarot
The Fairyring Oracle
The Faerie Oracle by Brian Froud (my favorite)
The New Age Tarot (my first deck)

I have owned but lost
The Druid Animal Oracle
The Inner Child Cards
The Dreampower Tarot

I have owned but given away
The Lovers Tarot
The Medicine Woman Tarot
The Gill Tarot
The Alice in Wonderland Tarot
The Celtic Tarot
The Animalspeak Tarot

I also enjoy dream interpretation (although I haven't successfully kept a dream journal in a couple of years), and the i ching, I would like to get into rune reading as well at some point but I'm waiting to get ahold of "The Runes of Elfland" by Brian Froud before I get too far into that.

psychic and tarot magical moments! ohmeohmy! 
11:41am 26/10/2004
  Hmmm what's the most magical experience you've ever had? Seen or experienced first hand?

I swear when I was younger - like a wee baby I could float.

I also once years ago read someone and literally in the middle of my table for no reason it started to smoke and my cards started to burn. I used my cards then so much, I think it was their way of saying they needed to say goodbye and live a life in spirit form and not card.

hi! im new to the community. i just recently started using the cards. i use brian froud's faerie oracle deck.

i did my *first* reading.
first i had to choose the card that appealed to me the most.
~*I chose 16) The Bright Mother
-i interpretted this to mean love, together, compassion, warmth, and have more respect for each other (in a relationship)
**{there was more to it, but a lot of it is repeative, and thats the basic idea}

2nd i had to choose the card that appealed to be the least.
~*I chose 55) The Soul Shrinker
-i interpretted is this to mean fear, unknown fear, cold, overpowering,and lonely

3rd i had to lay ALL of the cards facedown and let the God and Goddess guide me to choose a card.
i chose 2)ekstasis
-i interpreted this to mean uplifting, rebirth, peaceful, spiritual, good change.

card one tells me what i want the most (at that time) and what i want to acheive.
--the thing i decided that the card directed that i want the most right now is i want to have closer more intimate relationship with my boyfriend -mentally, spiritually, and physically (yeah it sounds corny). but we both love each other very much. and its genuine. well i have "intimacy problems" (even with my normal friends) but i still have trouble opening up to him. (im better about it but--) and we havent had sex either

card 2 tells us what is hindering me from acheiving card 1.
my desire. to be closer to the man i love. my hinderance. fear. an unknown fear.
i still have a hard time trying to tell him whats wrong. im better about it then i was. but im still scared what he'll think or what he'll say. (ie he has never yelled at me or scolded me or thought ill of me for any problem ive EVER had-quite the opposite, he's supportive of me) and we havent had sex, but recently we *tried*. okay, im a virgin (he's not). but i just couldnt i got scared. no reason. i mean i REALLY wanted to, but i started shaking. and i wasnt even afraid of the pain. i was just plain scared.

card 3 tells us what I can do to over come card 2 to acheive card 1.
i have been having trouble drawing and havent been myself in general for a few years now. but recently things are starting to shift themselves for me to start drawing again. and dream, and etc...
im not all the way there, but once i am *reborn* and begin drawing again, it may be easier to give my whole self to someone else. bc thats what i do with the pencil and paper.(that sounds kind of hokey but...)

so thats my first interp.
thoughts, advice, ideas all welcome! *^-^*

Runecast- 11/10/03 
11:22pm 16/11/2003
  I had my boyfriend give me a rune reading the night before we came back from vacation. It was a simple spread, I'm assuming a very common one. I wouldn't know for sure, though...I know next to nothing about runes. my question was regarding my spiritual growth and what I needed most to keep it moving...and smoothly. I had a really bad time a few months ago, and I decided the best course of action was to poin-blank ask for guidance on how to keep it from happening again.


The first rune I placed was closest to me. It is the base of the reading. This was Ansuz. The meaning Mark gave me was Wisdom and Intellect. It is correlated directly with Odin.

The second rune is placed above and to the left of the first (we're forming a clockwise diamond shape with a center rune) This second rune represents obstacles, and was Berkana/Beth It's the feminine/birth rune. Deals with intuition. I've yet to decide if this is an indication that intuition is still bloacked, or if it's suggesting that I might be attempting to rely to heavily on the non-physical.

Third rune; forces working for me-Gebo. Meaning; gift or joining. Mark's suggestion (sounds reasonable) is a meeting of male (ansuz) and female (berkana) will bring much-needed balance.

Fourth rune; immediate outcome- Swilio. Meaning; Sun, high attainment. A feminine rune.

Fifth rune; long term outcome- ehwaz; partnership. Seems to echo gebo.

Seems I need to learn balance, I guess. Now, if only I could make it happen...If anyone has any more in-depth interpretations, please feel free to post them. As I said before, I'm clueless about runes. I'm very interesting in changing that, though, so help would be appreciated.

  Last night I picked four random cards from the Tarot:

Six of Swords
Nine of Pentacles
Nine of Wands
Five of Pentacles

Also picked randomly from the Sacred Path deck and got Sacred Space (44) twice. Four is also my lucky number; 44 being two times four is especially lucky :)

First Reading...

  I did a past/present/future reading with the tarot last night. I got very interesting and accurate results, too.

Past ~ Six of Swords
Present ~ Empress (also interesting because it links with Taurus and I am Taurean)
Future ~ Knight of Swords

Lots of Swords these days, but luckily both of those cards are fairly positive. I don't usually like Swords much!

I also did a Sacred Path Cards reading for past/present/future but it wasn't incredibly accurate. My SP cards don't really like doing PPF, but the most interesting thing about the reading was the numbers.

Past ~ Fire Medicine (30)
Present ~ Storyteller (29)
Future ~ Medicine Bundle (28)

And those were picked from a fan of very well shuffled cards.. weird!

I'd expand more but I have to go and get ready to meet a friend right now...
