Very new newbie!

Hello all! I live in Rock Island, Illinois and I’m a late bloomer with the spiritual side of life. I have spent most of my life without one ounce of any kind of intuition. A few months ago I found myself doing things I wouldn’t normally do, but found a few days down the road that it was beneficial that I did. Somehow, my intuition has shown up and I became interested in tarot. As it often does, one thing led to another and the more I learned about the craft the more “at home” I felt. It just feels like this was something I was always meant to do. So, here I am, taking the lessons on this wonderful app and working on getting the tools I need. In fact, after this I’m heading over to the shop section to see what you awesome members have to offer!


How cool that you have discovered your intuitiion and Tarot! I can’t wait to hear what you are discovering these days :slight_smile:


Merry Meet @mary74! I’m Siofra from Cape Cod, I have family in Albion (sp?) they love it there. I’m glad that you have gravitated towards us & have found the courses!

We do have a tarot course & the lovely @Amethyst has put together poems for each card, I believe she’s just about finished with the deck. She posts the new ones on Sundays. You can find them all in this post :flower_playing_cards: Tarot Poems by The Gifted and Talented Kasie

Hi Mary😁. Nice to see another late bloomer. I just came onto this path a couple of months ago.


Hi @mary74! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the forum! :infinite_roots:

It’s so nice to have you here and you found us through the app? That’s great! @Francisco worked hard on that. I hope you enjoy the Courses! If you need any help or have any questions just ask and someone will pop up to help you out. I look forward to chatting with you more!

Aww, you’re making me blush, @Siofra_Strega! Thank you for sharing that link. Yep, I’m almost done with them. Just the Ten of Wands and the Court Cards left.


Welcome Mary! I’m a newbie too so you’re not alone :grinning:


Hi Mary,

I have a similar story as to how I came to my path. My mother found her way to paganism when I was a teen but I never thought anything of it. Fast forward to when I’m 39 and it just hit me out of no where. I started the same too: first with “gut instincts” being right, getting involved with tarot, reading a lot, and finding this great coven. I am now 41 and couldn’t be happier. Everyone here is amazing and I have learned so much about the craft and myself.



Hi @mary74 I am so glad you are here, it really is such a wonderful feeling when you can start living authentically. I am so glad you found your craft. I look forward to chatting with you. :slightly_smiling_face:


Wow, thank you all so much for the very warm welcome!! This is such a wonderful group that I am so excited to be a part of. Again, thank you thank you thank you!!! :heart:


You’re welcome, my dear! We’re a friendly group around here!


Hi, and welcome, @mary74! This is such a wonderful place to learn about the craft. I’m glad you’re here! :smiley: :sparkles:
