This is a trial run … writing a Tarot blog. I write all the time, but my Tarot offerings tend to be in the form of reviews. I have a few things that I would like to share, so I am going to see if doing a weekly Tarot blog works out.
The first item that I want to share is information about upcoming BATS (Bay Area Tarot Symposium). There are not that many Tarot related conferences or symposiums here in the U.S. BATS has been ongoing for 22 years, under the auspices of the Daughters of Divination and Thalassa. This year it is being held at the Double Tree Hotel in San Jose, CA on Saturday, August 17th and Sunday, August 18th. Presenters include Pamela Steele (The Steele Wizard Tarot), Lon Milo DuQuette, Major Tom Schick (Major Tom’s Marseille Tarot), Valentina Burton (The Fortuneteller’s Guide To Success), Arisa Victor (Thursday Night Tarot), and Pamela Eakins (Tarot of the Spirit). More information, and how to register, can be found here. Thalassa has gone to a great deal of effort to keep this symposium going over the years. With the downturn in the economy, this has not always been easy. This event offers unique Tarot information, a change to meet and greet with other Tarot professionals, and my personal favorite … vendors booths! Penciling this into your calendar will certainly help support this event, and our Tarot tribe in general.
There is a very interesting Tarot deck that has come to my attention – the Portland Tarot. Conceived by artist Theresa Pridemore, with a LWB written by Jamie Morris, this deck looks to make a strong statement on Portland, and on living life large!
From my friend Mary Nale we have Attune Magazine – an on-line e-zine featuring Tarot,and other metaphysical subjects, articles, artwork, reviews, videos, articles and stories. The theme for October is the Wheel of Fortune. Check out the site for submission guidelines. Mary is also host to Attune Magazine Radio, where a wide range of metaphysical subjects is discussed. Her newest venture is a radio show entitled “Sessions”, co-hosted by Mary, my friend Brad Tesh, and myself. This is going to be offered twice monthly, on Tuesday nights. The first show will be Tuesday, July 16th, where we will be introducing ourselves, the show’s concept, and discussing visualization. Also hosted on Attune Radio is a Thursday mid-day show entitled Personal Empowerment For Your Soul with Maggie Lukowski and Jean Maurie Puhlman.
I also want to head you over to one of themost outstanding Tarot blogs that I have ever seen – Jordan Hoggard’s blog – The Land Of Mystereum – Tarot, voice, and Story. Incredible connections with the cards, complimented by amazing videos!

It’s always informative to hear and read different perspectives on Tarot. Your blog is a welcome addition and will be added to my weekly read. I hope you consider continuing with it.
