Witchy Womyn

Estrofests is thrilled to have guest blogger, Eliza Fayle, this week – especially as she kicks off her newly published Developing Our Intuitive Self. Read more about Eliza and her guide.

“Women are angels And when someone breaks our wings,
We simply continue to fly.........on a broomstick.
We're flexible like that.” - Anon

By Eliza Fayle

Conjure up an image of a Tarot card reader. What comes to mind? A beautiful dark woman at the back of a voodoo shop greeting you with a slightly ominous c'om in chil'? A silk scarf draped gypsy wrapping her long beringed fingers around a crystal ball? A shriveled old crone with missing teeth?

Whoa! Back the Hollywood bus up.

Tarot cards are simply tools for tapping into your innate intuition. That's it, that's all. No mystery, no special powers required, and certainly no doom and gloom predications. They are merely a tool - and a simple one at that.

I read my own cards all the time, but sometimes if one intuitive head is good, two intuitive heads are better. I have a soul sister, let’s call her Jill, um, because that is her name. We work in the same building, so at any given moment one of us can put out a distress call.


This means we drop whatever we are doing. Yes, even work, because a soul sister in trouble is top priority. Every woman knows that. We meet in a boardroom, and Jill pulls out her oracle cards.

Whoever is in distress starts on a rant while shuffling and selecting the cards with her eyes closed. For the sake of argument, we'll say that Jill is in distress. After all, I'm holding the pen on this story, so I get to decide who is trouble.

As Jill is selecting her cards, I am making annoying statements like "Oooohhhh, that's a good one!" or "Bwhahahahahaha, you are going to hate that one!" For the record, Jill hates the black cards and I do not think she is all that fond of the green ones either. They are the 'bad boys' of her oracle cards.

The cards are turned over to reveal their story, and Jill starts interpreting them. I watch, trying my utmost to be quiet, because I am bursting with insight that Jill, in her distress, cannot see. Finally she shuts up ... um, is done ... and it's my turn.

I start off with "Well, you know ..." and then I move onto to telling her exactly what she didn't want to hear.

"Shut uuuuuppppp!" she says with a rueful smile. "I hate it when you and the cards are right."

Actually, she already had the answer. Just as I always have the answers when we read my cards. Just as you have the answers! To every single challenge in your life. It's all there inside all of us in the form of our intuition. Tarot and oracle cards are designed to help focus our energy and attention on our intuition - bringing the answers up to the surface.

So go ahead. Buy yourself a deck. You will know which one to buy when you see it on the store shelf. It will call to you. Then sit down with a cup of tea and play with the cards. The more you work with them, the more you will get from them.

Have fun with it! Then invite a friend over to help you. Or invite over a whole gaggle of girlfriends for an Estrofest Party to read each other's cards. After all, soul sisters will tell you exactly what you need to hear ... whether you like it or not.

Estrofests LOVES the idea of a “Witchy Woman” party. Hang beaded curtains and zodiac signs; set out candles and lava lamps; use dry ice to put off mysterious vapors; dress in gypsy-type garb and ….. use Eliza’s guide to find out more about what the cards (and your own intuition) have to say!

Estrofests’ Review of Developing Our Intuitive Self

In a beautifully designed guide, Eliza dispels the myth of cards as fortune-telling devices and illustrates how they can be used for developing self-awareness and enhancing intuition. She gives us the nuts and bolts of how to use the cards but emphasizes that deeper meanings come from within us. Her guide is a wonderful tool to help us examine our blockages, reawaken our dreams, and strengthen our connections. It is for sale (and immediate download as a .pdf file) at http://silverandgrace.com/elizas-books

Hi Joy,

Pleased to meet you.

If you do not have cards yet, you might be interested in attending my online workshops The Basics of Oracle cards first. One of the things I talk about is selecting the right cards for you. You can check out the workshop details on Silver & Grace under the Intuitive Mentoring menu.

Card readings are great not only for tapping into your intuition, but for bonding with your girlfriends as well :)
