My brother drove us back to Ohio and we’ve been showing him around the area. We took him to the Spring Grove Cemetery today, which is massive and beautiful. This beautiful view is literally a walk behind the tombs.

We’re back in Michigan for the moment; visiting family and getting a few more of our things packed up and ready to bring back to our new place. There’s a notice on the products page of The Attic Shoppe about shipping times during this time but I wanted to mention it here as well: Decks orders that we receive while we’re in MI will go out when we return Saturday the 23rd. I’m also restocking decks as they sell so if you hit a sold-out notice try again soon or send us a note and we can set one aside for you and send a paypal invoice for it. See you soon!

Card of the Day: The Lovers

April 13th, 2016

The Isidore Tarot The Lovers Card

The card I drew today was the Lovers card. Aesthetically it’s one of my favorite cards in the Isidore Tarot and was a complete joy to create. However, it’s not a card I’m, so to speak, intimate with in my learning the tarot. So I had to go back and read up on the card and see exactly where it and my current day to day relates to it.

On a very shallow level, going with just the title of the card and the couple on it I want to relate it to me and my love. Currently I’m back in Michigan visiting my family and packing up more of our things to take back to Ohio with me. We don’t like being apart from one another. My gent and I are not what you’d call a love story for the ages but rather the incredibly wonderful union of two old souls who were starting to lose faith in the world before they took a fresh look at one another. We were friends since the early 90s, but seemed to have found one another again romantically when we were both at an all time low in our lives. Together we have weathered addictions, personal drama, destructive habits and mindsets, and lose and never once lost faith in one another or ever thought about parting. Every day that I see my gent’s face and am able to give him a hug, no matter what goes on, is a good day. It took many years of fighting our personal demons to get there too. I want to look at the Lovers card and go awwww because I’m missing him and think it’s an interesting card to randomly draw at this moment. I worried I might be being fanciful with that reaction so I went and studied up.

As I referred to my different references I realized my first reaction (which I’m learning should be what I listen to when I’m reading the tarot) was pretty much the right reaction. I drew the card upright and find it applies very well to the gent and I. Our relationship is very close and strong, as friends first and lovers second. I realize the card might be reminding me of this after a brutal few weeks. Read the rest of this entry »
