This month, I used a very special tarot deck once owned by my grandmother. The deck I used for this spread was “The Ancient Art of Tarot” put out by the Pacific Game Company in 1975.

This was an easy reading from @WitchyTips on Instagram.

Go grab your deck and give it a good shuffle with your energy. Now find the Empress card in the deck. The card below is what’s been holding your creativity back and the card above is how to get past the block.
