Magic Mentha's Cartoon Gummy Bear Reading
Anyhow, all this to say that I went over to Magic Mentha's site and bought one of her cartoon readings, which are on special offer this September. Mentha asked me which deck I'd like her to use, and I chose the Gummy Bear Tarot, which seemed to suit the cartoon format well.
Mentha's hallmark humour and wisdom. And here to the side is a close-up of the cartoon :)
I'm thinking these cartoon readings would make a great gift for someone who is open to tarot and likes a laugh. You know who you are, so you know what's coming, but as each one is unique it'll still be a surprise ;D
It was interesting for me to take a picture of my altar, seeing it from a slightly more objective perspective than normal. I notice that the air and earth quadrants get a lot more focus than the fire and water sections, which probably makes sense given I'm a double Gemini (sun and ascendant) with moon in Capricorn.
In the air quarter I have incense and holder, and also a feather in a Bast holder. In the earth quadrant a stone, pentacle-etched box that holds more stones - palm stones, balls and tumblestones - that I choose from and hold when meditating. Actually, I guess the fire quadrant is also pretty full, mainly due to location, and yet I see the pictures as being rather of the element of air: ideas and communication. There's an angel card titled "Nurture" that I use as a focus for Big Boy. A "Pele" card as I'm working on my anger issues still, and of course Mentha's reading in the middle. The water quadrant is the weakest, with just a small, Tintagel-labyrinth-etched plate holding water. I shall have to think what else I can put there! Any suggestions are always gratefully received :)
