High-Tech Tarot

Okay, well, maybe it is not particularly high-tech to some of you, but for an old crone like me who seems to have an aversion to modern electronics, it seems that way. I don't pay for my apps, I hardly know how to use my smartphone, but this is something that I discovered awhile ago, and now would not be without. 

Yes, I still like the feel of the cards and yes, I still adore my Tarot of the Cloisters deck, but with the Galaxy Tarot app on my phone, if I have my phone, I have my Tarot. What's more, I can do readings, and email the screenshot right to my client. I can share specific cards, I can add my own notes, I can refer to the different aspects of the symbolism or different correlations; in short, there's not a lot I can't do with this. 

I'm not one to go all gaga over an app, but this one--along with the sister app, Galaxy Runes -- are the only two for which I've actually paid. At $4 a throw they're excellent value for money. 

Whether you're a novice just learning or an old hand at reading the cards, this is a most excellent app. There is a free version that, even with its limited resources, seems to have a lot to offer. Ten minutes with the free version convinced me I needed the pro. I think Galaxy Software has done an excellent job with it.

Charlie Rainbow Wolf is happiest when she is creating something, especially if it can be made from items that others have cast aside. Pottery, writing, knitting, and Tarot are her deepest interests, but she happily confesses that she’s easily distracted, because life offers so many wonderful things to explore. Charlie has been reading the Tarot professionally for over two decades, and can't imagine life without it. She is an advocate of organic gardening and cooking, and lives in the Midwest with her husband and special-needs Great Danes.

    Galaxy Tone is a great app on Kindle Fire! Wish they had a better deck selection, though. (Btw, was gifted a Cloisters Tarot last year. LOVE it!)
