The Omily Tarot: The Gift of Wisdom

Well, this is it! One week left to go until Christmas, and Hanukkah has already begun! Have you got all your gift shopping taken care of? Still swooping up some last minute items? Haven't even started yet (husband, I'm looking at you)?

Ok, well, don't panic. A few solid shopping trips should get you squared away. You have your list, right? Of what you're getting who?

Oh. You haven't...

Ok, well, this is a tarot post, after all! Why not ask the cards?

No, seriously, why not? Your trusty tarot deck has seen you through bigger challenges than this! Now,  I know, no matter how good of a reader you are, your deck isn't going to tell you what size sweater to get your sister in law, or whether the kids-these-days on your list would prefer the Fault in Our Stars dvd or that trendy sweatshirt. (Seriously? A trendy sweatshirt? Feck it, she's getting the dvd) BUT, your deck can jump start the free association process and point you in the direction of where your loved ones' interests and needs lie. That intersection is pretty crucial for successful gift buying.

Now, in general, I'm not a fan of cosmic peeping. Tarot readings should be about yourself. If you have a question about a relationship, it's about you in the relationship, not your partner...but in this case, I'm happy to make the exception, and trust my desk to protect my family and friends' privacy.

If your people have shown any interest at all, a beautiful new tarot deck is an awesome gift choice! I don't believe that nonsense that your first tarot deck MUST be a gift, but that doesn't mean it isn't nice to receive one, whether it's your first one or not, and if it is, it may be just the push you need to ignite a life long love.

Do you have that one family member who is just a sucker for Christmas? Who literally counts down all year long, and decorates the tree the day after Thanksgiving? The Tarot's got you covered.
Yes, seriously, this is a thing. And I kind of want it...
Have you ever asked your deck for gift-giving advice? Think you'll try it this year? Hmmm...maybe I'll give it a shot for that last hard-to-shop-for person, too!
