That's a great poem!
Amanda Niehaus-Hard
01:05:14
love that one!!
BellaBianca Lynn
01:06:54
I bet this is a great way to memorize the cards!
Lizzy
01:08:27
Can we know the names of these decks?
Rebekah (she/her)
01:08:37
Yes I'd like to know the names of them as well! ^
Cindy Richard
01:08:58
How many tarot decks do you have? Which one is your favorite?
Cathy (she/her) Fahey
01:09:42
The names of the decks will be in the handout and are cited later in the presentation. But the 7 of cups was the Centennial Rider-Waite-Smith
Cathy (she/her) Fahey
01:10:32
These are (l-R) Modern Witch Tarot, Sasuraibito Tarot, and Numinuos Tarot
Cathy (she/her) Fahey
01:11:34
Hi All - for those that just entered, we're in the middle of a prompt right now. Please look at the 3 cards pictured. How are they similar? How are they different? How does looking at the same card in different ways add to/change it's meaning? Use these questions to spark your poem.
Cathy (she/her) Fahey
01:14:08
@Cindy - I have about 25 decks right now. And I can't choose just one as my favorite! But of the ones I'm showing today, the Sasuraibito comes closest
Cindy Richard
01:15:56
Wow - I only have 2, but I can see how having that many would be really inspiring because of all of the amazing imagery!
Amanda Niehaus-Hard
01:16:45
I love just how different even these three are from the decks I have. Completely different feelings.
Cathy (she/her) Fahey
01:16:50
You only really need one deck! But some have just been so beautiful/interesting/compelling....
Heidi Wakeman
01:17:51
This is so much fun. Thank you!

BellaBianca Lynn
01:22:18
What stones do you frame your decks with?
Cathy (she/her) Fahey
01:25:38
@Bella: Selenite (I think?) Jet, Labradorite, Tourmilated quartz. And there's no real reason for me choosing them, other than they were the first ones I grabbed, and I needed something to show me where to center the cards for the camera :)
Nicole-Anne Keyton
01:28:41
What a fitting last card…we started with this one, too!
Cathy (she/her) Fahey
01:29:01
