Yes I do see the 7 of Swords, even in my pirate deck, as the lady pirate is very leery in her approach. For me, I came up with the Ace of Pentacles, because his face is hiding behind a coin. Made me think of the witch hiding in her castle, watching Dot & Crew walk through the field of poppies. (I'll admit it's been several years since I've seen the movie, but the witch DID watch them, didn't she? Didn't she have a crystal ball or a cauldron or something she saw them in?) Otherwise, I chose the IV of Wands, simply because there are 4 people on the card - signifying Dot, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion. I know there are no "right or wrong" answers, but are these okay??

You can use my real name. :) I have never done any reviews on Amazon, except for leaving feedback for sellers. But I love when I go on there and I see one of your reviews listed for the book I'm looking at! I will try to start adding my own reviews, since I do find others' helpful. Thanks for the suggestion, Janet!
I liked the Pirate deck because the faces seemed to have a lot of expression. Also I just happen to like skulls and steampunk and pirates. :) And yes, I'm very familiar with the Wizard of Oz, because I grew up in Kansas. In fact, I have come to resent the movie so much after having moved away from the state, so maybe that's why I'm blocked on this particular subject too. hehehe And I see what you're saying - and you elaborated on this in your BIT post but I didn't pick up on it at first: But I need to break down the components of the scene, not just "which card matches the flowers." I need to think about all the different elements in order to make the connection personal.

Awwwwwwwwwww! Really????? Wow that would be awesome! I was planning to get a copy, but to have it come specially from you would be a real treat!! Thanks, Janet!!!
Yes I was just checking out the "Field of Poppies" snapshot and posted on that topic. Need advice for getting started? My mind isn't making any obvious connections with Tarot. Do I have the wrong deck? Am I not psychic enough? :)

Janet, some advice? The deck I have is pirate-themed, which doesn't have any resemblance to the Wizard of Oz obviously, or pictures of flowers for that matter. :) How do I make a connection?
No I do not have your book yet. Obviously I have seen it mentioned, but I didn't know that was the premise: Connecting the "real world" to Tarot. I guess I just assumed your book was an advanced method of Tarot that I am still too novice to understand yet. I should not make assumptions! :)

I just finished reading my first Byron Katie book, "I Need Your Love - Is That True?" per a recommendation I saw on your blog a few weeks ago. I am still in the process of reflecting on everything I learned from it, even though the ideas behind her philosophy are rather simple. Until you posted this topic here, I didn't realize other authors were also investigating Inquiry. That is very interesting! I checked out the link to your previous blog post about the IV of Swords. That was a completely new thought to me - to connect Tarot to The Work (or any other subject, for that matter.) I am still new to Tarot, so understanding how to integrate its concepts into everyday life and not just look at it as its own entity is new to me. But I love all the new perspectives your blog opens up and I especially love when you demonstrate ways to utilize Tarot to the full!

Sorry it took me a few days to check back here! Thank you so much for the reward!! I can't wait to tell my brother how his inspirational wisdom won me a contest. :) Thanks again!
My brother once said to me, "Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet the sweaty things." It's little philosophical treasures like that which make me realize I have the best family in the world.

I like that illustration of the "high church" and "low church" -- doesn't make the disciple any less spiritual, or in this case, moved by tarot! :)

You obviously possess a gift for writing - even more powerful than you are aware! I know that autism has been on the minds of the masses this month, or else why would we have months devoted to certain causes? And even more so for it to hit so close to home for you. I did order Byron Katie's "I Need Your Love - Is This True?" because the topics she covers in that book hit close to home with my life where it is now. But I look forward to discovering more of her work. Take care, all of the Boyer family!

Having only recently started investigating Tarot, I saw a lot of different suggestions on "cleansing decks" that sounded deliciously superstitious and hilarious at the same time. I'll admit, I thought I had to follow these methods to be "qualified" to read the cards. :P However, upon choosing a second deck from an assortment in a shop one day, I just went with the one that stood out to me and started using it right away. I'm glad to hear from a Tarot veteran that this is an "approved" method. :)

Having only recently discovered your blog, I was unaware that your son had autism. I thought this post was really powerful. I can't quite put my finger on it. I know a few young boys with autism, and you just opened my eyes to their world a little bit more, and to the world of their parents and caregivers. I'm also going to check out Byron Katie. Thanks again for another thought-provoking blog post and take care!!

Very interesting post, Janet! And it must be true, coming from an esteemed veteran Tarot reader such as yourself. Helps me to see not to put so much emphasis on the cards themselves as being "inspired," but to find the inspiration within. Thanks for the new perspective!
