Earth Wisdom Tarot Sacred Art

Gratitude begets Gratitude, Hope begets Hope

in Art, Community, Gratitude


Yesterday when I sent out my newsletter, I included the gift of a print-quality download of my best-selling print, the Star.  I just wanted to say thank you to my subscribers, especially those who have been following my work for years now.   Within a couple of hours, Jaspenelle sent me this photo.  She had already printed it, framed it, and put it on her altar.  How cool is that?

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .

    Hey, I recognize that altar… 😉 Made me smile seeing it on your blog. I love your art and The Star is represents perfectly the type of energies I want in my life right now.

    Aww that altar looks so beautiful!
    I wanted to thank you Joanna for such a generous gift. It’s always been amongst my favourites of your work & this afternoon as I printed it off & I got a glimse of those pencil strokes (hehe) I felt such gratitude to you!
    It shall no doubt be number 1 on my gratitude list tomorrow morning!!:)

    I just wanted to say that I love your art, and I’m eagerly awaiting the final four cards so that I can buy a majors-and-minors deck!

    Thank you for the lovely print…it arrived at my inbox just when I need it most.
    Years ago, I began my metaphysical curiosity with Linda Goodman’s books. After some intense calculating, I discovered that both my birth date and my name were numerologically 17, which was the “8 pointed star of Venus.” Every time I see The Star card, I feel my connection with the Divine Source deepen and I remember why I’m here.
    Because of your generosity, I can experience this abundance of magic whenever I look at it. Or, whenever it looks at me. 🙂

    Thank you all . . . so glad it is a blessing to you! Kat, you’ll have to look into Tarot Birth Cards (sometimes called Personality/Soul cards) based on numerology . . . the Star is indeed numbered #17 in the Major Arcana, and reduces to 8, which is Strength . . . so you are a Star/Strength.

    Your Star card is my all-time favorite, and it’s also my personality card. I am so excited to see you only four cards from finishing the minors that I can hardly contain myself! Not only is your artwork amazing, but your writing is always so gentle and illuminating. Thank you for all that you do.
