Tarot

Recently I have had an interest in tarot cards. It seems like a fun hobby to have that can help you figure things out. And right now, I could definitely use some help figuring things out! It's kind of interesting though, in my brief researching of how to use tarot cards I have found that it is less of a magical/future telling thing and more of a way to realize new things about yourself. It's more about connecting with your deeper self to help you on your life journey. I haven't learned how to do them myself yet but I have found a cool website where you can get them read online and for free! All you do is type in a question and it generates a reading for you. I did it maybe one.... two... 10 times..? But it's so fun! And not to mention, incredibly helpful. So I thought I'd share my favorite: 
 

Question: Am I on the right path? 

(This question was related towards our whole tiny house building thing and what will come after it)

The Creative Process spread is designed specifically to peer into the nature of a project or creative undertaking, and shine a spotlight on the evolution of its parts. The Aquatic Tarot is a modern watercolor interpretation of the classic Rider Waite symbolism. It is rapidly becoming one of the most popular decks, due to both its spectacular beauty and its traditional imagery.
