Red Ribbon Symbolism

Red Ribbon Symbolism

Hello! Those who own the Shadowscapes tarot will notice that Stephanie likes using a red ribbon in her deck. This red ribbon adds yet another layer of meaning to the cards we see it on. It's mostly things we need to keep in mind, pay attention to, be wary of... Sometimes, the ribbon is rather obvious and at other times, it can go almost unnoticed. Because it is featured quite a lot, and because it can point to so many things, it's important to know a bit more about it. Interpreting the red ribbon is not easy. But this presentation is a start. I hope. It's good to keep in mind that the red ribbon...

How To Read The Tarot -short guide

I know you were expecting a presentation of one of the cards or one of the symbols. That's brewing for next week [hopefully]. This week, I will help you "learn how to read the tarot" cards. The process is rather long, but it can help you see other aspects of a situation, or new ways of doing the same thing. I will have to tell you from the start that not everyone can do it, and most definitely not with all the decks. Or perhaps they just didn't discover the right one yet? [boring backstory] Many years back I had an oracle deck, and the meanings of each card was pretty straight-forward: whatever...

Reviewing 2 Short Films (with spoilers)

Short films are sometimes under-rated: almost nobody pays attention to them, but sometimes they can surely pack a punch. "Toyland" (2015) This is a short film by Jochen Alexander Freydank, and is spoken in German. You can watch it at this Youtube link. There are English subtitbles, if you don't speak German. Spoilers ahead! Around the World War II, a Jewish boy, David, and a German boy, Friedrich, are friends and learn how to play the piano together. One day, Friedrich sees David's mother upset and asks his own why. She says that his friend's family will have to leave soon to "Toyland." Friedrich...

The Shadowscapes Tarot - Six of Cups

I think I should be faster in posting these interpretations. After all, i still have 2 decks waiting for me. ;) What do we see? When i look at the card, i first see its dominant color, blue. The second color that stands out is yellow. The main scene is inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The cups are literal cups used for serving tea. At least 5 of them are. The 6th is separated from the others and has a different shape and color. There are toys around a table, as well as some mystic creatures. they either observe the scene or even participate in it. The toys appear to have a sad expression...

Hello Everyone! Long time no see, huh? It's time to drink tea again! This time, we'll be tasting the Lemon Black Tea by Lord Nelson. This is not a sponsored post, and it was my mother who gave me the tea. So that's what the box looks like. And on one of its sides, we can see the LIDL logo. I don't have LIDL next to my place, so I don't shop there, and I can't remember seeing this brand of tea in other supermarkets. I'll go ahead and assume it's a LIDL brand -feel free to correct me if i'm wrong. The tea is already packaged in 20 small pyramid bags - apparently, this is better for flavor diffusion....

The Shadowscapes Tarot - The Moon

The Moon is the 18th card in the Major Arcana. This card is full of meanings and hidden messages. Of course, the meaning will depend on the reader, question that was asked, as well as the other cards surrounding it. What do we see? The color scheme is one of the first things we see, before we get to interpret the card. The dominant color of this card is a murky green. The second color that pops out is yellow. And then we have some hints of orange and red. In the center of the card, to the right, we see a female figure. She stands in a clearing and there's a forest behind her. A crescent moon is...

What's going on in Yashahime? (season 1)

Many people must remember the manga and anime, Inuyasha that ran from late 1990s until late 2000s. It now has a sequel called Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon that just started airing. And this sequel makes almost NO sense. AT ALL. At this point, there are plot holes and many, many questions awaiting an answer. I came up with some ideas and will present them here. Along with the questions and plot holes. Now, this is where spoilers will come into place so read on at your own risk. Who and Where Are the Parents? This anime has 3 main characters: Moroha, Setsuna, and Towa. Moroha is the daughter of...

Art For Mindfulness - coloring book

Hi all!! Despite coloring being generally considered a children’s activity, more and more coloring books are printed these days and they target adults. These books are usually called “Art for Mindfulness” or “Mandalas for Mindfulness” and they’re a perfect way to relax at the end of a stressful day, especially for those who dislike watching TV and prefer a more rewarding activity instead. Opinions on the book I got one of these books too, as a Christmas present - I really wanted one. My motive was to have another way to explore my creativity and to express myself, other than writing or cooking....
