Welcome to the new blog!
I thought I would take this time to introduce the new blog and reintroduce myself, Jess. This is a huge transition moving blogs and rebranding my tarot practice, but frankly, I've had this in mind for the past year... it recently moved from a 2 of Wands energy to a 3 of Wands, thus Radical She Tarot was born.
While this is a brand new blogging platform for me, I'm still the same card slinger and blogger! With this move I have high hopes to bring some new content to the blog and connect with more of my readers. Tarot has been a passion of mine for over 5 years now, I started this love affair with these 78 cards back in 2013. When I began learning tarot, I grabbed the reigns and dived in head first - no mentor or teacher - just the cards and a journal. My approach from day one was lead by intuition. As time went by and my studies grew deeper, I looked to the books to help add more spectrum to my readings and interpretations, without hindering my own connection to the cards. I read tarot intuitively with a traditional backbone. I do use traditional interpretations if they feel right and never disregard my intuition.
One thing I'll note is that I am not a psychic and don't pretend to be. I also believe deeply in the what is called the Butterfly Effect:
"In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state."
In other words, I don't believe our future is set in stone. When reading "future" card positions, I tend to see them more as either a "goal" to work towards or "warning" depending on the card that is being presented.
Most of the decks I use are independently produced (indie decks) by other artists. I love working with indie decks and tend to connect the best with them over more traditional decks, so you will see me use indie decks often on the blog and in my pictures. Though, I do love a good Rider-Waite Smith deck and tend to grab for this deck when doing any tarot studies or comparisons when teaching others.
As far as my spiritual practice goes, it's very eclectic and SHE/Goddess centered. I don't plan to talk about my practice much on the blog, but it may come up here and there.
Ok, I think I rambled on enough, haha! My only goal for my blog is that it will bring enjoyment to those who are new to tarot, have an interest, or have been slinging cards for many years! I love to share my thoughts with others and blogging about the cards also helps to deepen my connection with them.
Cheers to fresh starts!
