OMG, Craig, you are BRILLIANT! HAHAHA! Wait until I show Noah. He will LOVE this. (LMAO at "Collie Satan".) I'm so proud of all the research and work Noah put into this card. He thought of patterning it after the RWS, so I told him all the objects on the table symbolize the four elements--and, during his research, look for things that may correlate to them. After weeks of his diligent research, I was so psyched when he told me what they would be. :o)

Technically, you can make just about any system a set of correspondences to Tarot (as long as their applications are broad enough, and Flower Essences ARE). I'm thrilled you like the idea! I've used Bach Flower Essences for years and thought they'd make a great complement to Tarot healing. Do you use Essences, Trivia?
