The tea I've chosen to pair with the Six of Swords is The Blues Blend from Mountain Rose Herbs. Nourishing nervine herbs team up to bring us the perfect tea for when we're feeling a little downspirited. Organic Nettles, St. John's Wort, Spearmint, Damiana, Kava Kava, and a pinch of Stevia create a formula that is both relaxing and uplifting. This tea is a useful tool to get us through the occasional rough day, and could also serve as a great daily tonic tea to support those with mild clinical depression. A mildly sweet, minty flavor makes this tea ideal to be enjoyed either hot or iced. However you choose to take it, drinking this tea is a soothing and encouraging experience.*Note: This may not be appropriate for those on anti-depression, anti-anxiety pharmaceutical medications. Please check with your health care provider before drinking.
Our featured deck for this week is the Thoth Tarot. Designed by the infamous English wizard, Aleister Crowley, it is one of the world's most widely used and historically significant Tarot decks. This prestigious deck was painted by Lady Frieda Harris during the years 1938-48, although it was not published until much later in 1969. The images on these cards are potent, to say the least. Packed to the brim with artistic detail and overflowing with esoteric symbolism, many Tarot enthusiasts would agree that the quality of this deck is nearly unparalleled to this day. One signature feature of this deck is named pips, or numbered cards of the Minor Arcana, which results in a deck which seems easier to read. Although it's tempting, I don't necessarily recommend this deck for beginners because I have personally found it to be extremely powerful. The Thoth Tarot seems to be a special favorite of male practitioners due to its strong ties with the tradition of Western Occultism, but it makes a fantastic daily deck for absolutely any mature reader. This is a crucial addition to any Tarot collection!
