As we move along in our book, I am slowly trying to catch up on creating the tarot spreads it has inspired me to want to explore. This book has been one of the most cathartic books I have ever had the pleasure to read. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise to me, as I am a strong believer in story, in women, in creating, and in the life/death/life nature of existence. (Estes, 1992). I use her term there, of life/death/life, because it is the term which most adequately sums up the cycle that I have always felt most attuned to, and that I’ve believed my women are most attuned to. I am astounded by the work of art this author created about women, and getting down to the root core of who we are.
If you haven’t read the book, I would suggest picking up a copy. I have another blog post with spreads for the first two chapters. I am not going to explain the terms here in depth, as I really think the spread needs to be used in conjunction with the reading. For the women who have read it, and give this a try, I’d love to see what you come up with.
Below is the example of my own using the Lumina tarot.
