Tarot Articles Progress

My pages are finally back in reasonable shape after hitting a bit of a snag yesterday. For some reason, Mozilla turned on the inline CSS option all by its self, and my pages started going all weird. I guess that’s what I get for using a beta program. 🙂 After a lot of work, and snapping at my very patient boyfriend, everything is just as good as new, if not better. I puzzled out a little more HTML yesterday, which improved the overall layout of the pages I have created so far. Hopefully today I can get my transparent graphics to save properly and fix the scroll problem with this page.

My Tarot notes are coming along aswell. On the 17th I started studying one card a day, making notes on the symbolism and meanings, as well as my own feelings about the cards. You can see the results of this in the Major Arcana section of my Tarot notes. I was influenced by Thirteen’s Tarot Basics and Ms. Greer’s Tarot for Yourself. I hope I’ve added enough of my own thoughts and observations that it doesn’t look like I’m just rewording the work of these two wonderful writers.

Earlier this week I received another new Tarot deck. I traded my Spiral Tarot for the Hanson-Roberts Tarot. I had never really bonded with the Spiral Tarot. It’s beautiful, but I didn’t like the American Civil War look that the Minor Arcana has. The Hanson-Roberts deck is almost perfect. And I’m nearly certain it is the same deck that a lady I babysat for had. It was a long time ago though, so I don’t clearly remember it. It doesn’t really matter though, because I love this deck. The pictures are sweet, but they still seem capable of getting across a harsh message. I’m beginning to think that my Robin Wood and my Hanson-Robert decks will both have different uses. I’m not sure what they will be yet though. For now I am enjoying studying the two decks, along with my tiny Universal Waite. I hope the notes I am producing will be of use to someone.
