Are You A Master Gardener?

Are you a master gardener? Do you look at your life as a garden, and take the time to seed it, to nurture it, to weed it, and then to sit back and enjoy the results? If not, then you may want to spend some time with Master Gardener Jordan Hoggard’s incredible new blog! Jordan is the author and artist for the “Mystereum Tarot” (lovingly self-published), and “Tarot In The Land Of Mystereum”, the updated version recently released from Schiffer Books. (Blatant self promotion – my review of “Tarot In The Land Of Mystereum” can be seen here – http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/land-mystereum/review.shtml. My 2008 interview with Jordan can be seen here – http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/learn/interview_jordan_hoggard.shtml.)

This is a deck that is meant to be worked with on all levels, not just used for readings (or the occasional journey, ritual or ceremony – which it does well, with its bright colors!). To this end, Jordan has begun a new blog, which can be seen here: JordanHoggard.wordpress.com. Anyone who knows Jordan, or has seen any amount of his work, knows they are in for a treat! (Note: I would love to see Jordan and Craig Conley take on a project together!)

Here are a few links to get you started:
