This blog is designed to explore the new Fairy Tale Tarot by Lisa Hunt. But since I LOVE to blog....I am sure I'll wander off into some other musings about fairytales!!

"The Fairy Tale Tarot cards are like gazing into that pool. They reflect different aspects of each of us. They illuminate or accentuate those parts of us that we seek, or deny, or just long to understand. The cards and the fairy tales they are based on, provide a framework for understanding self and the human aspects of life. And maybe the "not so human" aspects too....the spiritual. They are the water in the pool. Clear and shimmering, reflecting clearly and yet also bringing forth tiny glimpses of those wings. It is this aspect of the cards that called to me. I feel they have things to reveal to me and I am anxious to hear them "speak."

It's Tarot Spread Tuesday: Hello October

As I mentioned earlier, I'd like to focus on Tarot Spreads on Tuesdays. Some will be my own creations, some will be interesting ones I find, and sometimes I will focus on topics about spreads rather than an actual spread in some way the topic for Tuesday will be related to spreads.

For today we will look at a spread posted by Nirvie over at aeclectic forums. She called it Hello October but it is basically a monthly spread that can be used to examine the month that lies ahead. Since it is almost October first, I thought it would be a great one to share here. I think there are two good times in October to give it a try. October 1st or the full moon which this year is on Sunday October 4th.

It has seven cards with the topics as listed below.

1) Month Overview
2) Overview of Friendships this month
3) Overview of Relationships/LoveLife this month
4) Overview of Work/Academics this month
5) Positive Energies entering this month
6) Potential Obstacles of this month
7) Advice for the month

If you use it on the full moon I would suggest a circular layout, with card one is the middle and the rest of the cards around it...with the two at the top then clockwise around card one.


  1. This is interesting. I might try it this full moon. Although in Standard Pacific Time, it says it's gonna be on Oct 3, 2009. I found this link for reference:

    But for Universal Time, it is October 4.

    Thanks for the spread layout. :-)

  2. LOL...yeah the whole time zone thing always throws me...let me know how the reading goes and if you think doing it on the full moon enriched it in any way.
