This is my favorite tarot application I have EVER for! I ordered the deck itself I love it that much and a book and bag and flag from Etsy and had the book signed and dedicated in the name of my kitty that passed away in April 2015. I should obtain my things by the 1st of June, hopefully. Mickie is a truly sweet and kind doll and deserves the 5 star rating for her app. Thumbs up for an awesome deck! I'm in love! Check her items out on Etsy! You won't be sorry! MickieMuellerStudio and mysticalcatstarot
I've used several tarot apps over the years and none have been so accurate as this. Not only is the deck attractive and intuitive, especially for cat lovers, but the application itself is as well. With other apps I search myself wondering how the card drawn actually relates to my question. With this one, however, it's simple to interpret what I need to know. Perfect work, devs!
I just ordered the Mystical Cat Tarot yesterday and am waiting for them to come in the mail. I then discovered that this application was available and it was an instabuy! Now I can't wait for the deck to obtain here, but after being able to see the cards in the application and some of the book, I'm even more excited!!!
For an application that costs money, I really expected the journal feature to be more intuitive and easier to use. When inputting journal entries, I can't title the entries myself. If I'm lucky, the application will title them automatically. More often than not, it doesn't and I can't even edit the entry to fix it. I have to delete it and do it all over again. It's really inconvenient. Otherwise I love the cards and having access to the guidebook. The journal definitely needs tweaking though.
This book is not a retelling of the stories from Norse mythology, nor a general overview of the beliefs of the pre-Christian Norse (and other Germanic) people. Rather, it is an analysis of how the myths themselves may have evolved over time, and the put of the myths in the religious beliefs of people during the Viking Age (say around the year 900) and the conversion era (roughly around the year 1000 in Scandinavia).The discussion of the sources goes into the issue of circularity: there are pictorial artefacts (e.g., picture stones) that appear to present scenes from well-known Norse myths. The pictures were created well before the myths as we know them were recorded, and thus provide evidence that the myths go back a long method before the myths were written down. But without the literary evidence -- especially Snorri's Prose Edda -- we would not know what the pictures were about. We use Snorri to interpret the pictures, then point to the pictures as evidence that Snorri's tales are authentic. Abram points out that this is not an invalid use of the evidence, but has limitations that should be kept in mind.Abram questions some common assumptions about evidence. One idea I particularly liked is that grave goods do not necessarily tell us anything about beliefs in an afterlife. As a non-religious person myself, I can see the emotional appeal of burying a dead loved one with stuff identified with that person, although I do not believe in a hereafter. Nor do I think the reason a modern Christian would bury his mother with her wedding ring is because he thinks she will need it in heaven. Yet somehow we leap to the conclusion that early people provided their dead with grave goods because they expected them to use them in some further existence.A amazing of the book with how myths developed over time, not just "organically," but in the hands of the skilled poets of the Viking and conversion periods (as well as in retellings after the conversion -- e.g., by Snorri and Saxo). Poems in the pre-Christian age may have been written, using traditional mythical material, but with fresh emphasis, fresh details, and in fresh combinations, to reflect the social and political realities of the time of writing. Fresh stories may have been told about the old gods, within the framework of the existing t only did the mythology thus change over time, but Abram also points out that an authentic, traditional mythology is not the same as the religion of a group of people. Mythology and religion go together, but that does not mean that practitioners of a religion necessarily accept the mythology as literal truth. To again think of this in modern terms, a lot of modern Christians do not literally believe that Jehovah made the globe in seven days, some 6000 years ago; but the Christian creation story is still meaningful in their belief system and an necessary part of the culture of Christendom.While this book is a serious scholarly study, it is accessible to the lay reader -- interesting and enjoyable to read as well as thought-provoking.
Haven’t gotten around to reading the book yet, but I did message that the spine of the book is messed up to where instead of it saying Myths of the pagan north... it says “ths of the pagan north...”The printing failed on the top part of my spine which is a shame since the book wasn’t necessarily cheap
I would have loved this trilogy. I mean it was nearly perfect. I read it in about 3 days. The ending would have been freaking awesome if not for the stupid thing with the Women talking about how Cybil would handle the recent twist. Without making too a lot of spoilers I'll just say look ladies you either believe in fate and destiny or you don't it doesn't work both ways. Really gross, not to mention out of hero for a bunch of people who believe everything happens for a reason and was in part orchestrated by ancestors from the 1600's. Almost just seemed like a method for Nora to throw it In there because she personally wanted to. It's gross and doesn't fit with the characters and I was seriously rolling my eyes. I would give all 3 books five stars. But the nasty small speech during Cybil' s mini crisis I was forced to KILL two stars. I mean Cybil cried from shooting a DOG I mean CLEARLY GROSS AND NOT OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
**spoiler warning**I really wanted to search out how what happened to the Hollow and how the demon was demolished so I stuck with it and finished. AS I have said in my reviews of the other 2 , I am not usually a reader of romance so my jaded view of that genre colors my is third of the trilogy is essentially the story of the most troubled of the "Blood Brothers," Gage. Gage is an interesting hero and some of the scenes with his parents (or impersonations of them) are moving. That Gage becomes involved with the sassy Cybil is predictable.I had been waiting for another generation since book 2, when that was hinted at but went nowhere, so I was not surprised when all 3 gals are pregnant. What becomes of the babies remains unknown as it probably should fully edited, this trilogy would have been a amazing creepy suspenseful story contained in one book. Three created it just too drawn out.
Not at all what I expected, but it does include some amazing info on the pagan origins of the Christian Christmas.
By far the best book in the series, The Pagan Stone tells the story of the latest couple, Cybil and Gage. Both can see the possible future, most notably the outcome of the war between the amazing and evil that the entire group now knows is inevitable. As the Seven draws closer, things obtain more and more sinister around Hawkins Hollow, and the former adversaries must learn to combine their power. Gage, ever the wanderer, is reluctant to make any ties to Cybil, while she in her turn doesn't wish to be defined by a relationship. However, as they join forces with each other and the four others--Cal and Quinn, Fox and Layla--they realize that their purely desire is about to become something more and that there is nothing they can do about it. Amazing luck with that, first I couldn't really obtain into Roberts' recent trilogy. The first couple of chapters in the first book, Blood Brothers, were slow and it took me awhile to plow through to see the point of the setup. As a relative newcomer to the Nora Roberts scene, I wasn't sure I liked her style, but it grew on me and I now quite like it. It is very begin and engaging, but still formal enough to showcase her talent as a writer. The characters in this book could have been more developed, but overall it was a very enjoyable read.
I found the first book of this trilogy at our local library. Once I read it, I had to have book # 2 and 3. This book is # 3. I was happy to search it on Amazon at a reasonable and shipping. The book was used, but in amazing condition. This particular series was amazing enough I couldn't wait until I had time to sit down and read some more. It with what could be perceived as demons, so some may not wish to read it. I consider it suspenseful fiction and enjoyed the series. I would recommend.
I just finished rereading this series for maybe the fifth time. This was a amazing wrap-up to the series and kept in touch with both the moods and backgrounds of the characters. It would have been simple to fall back on a deus ex machina, but didn't. The touching and laugh-out-loud moments continued right up through the end. It shouldn't spoil anything, but honestly, who can resist the lines: "We got you a Glad You Didn't Die cake. Betts at the bakery wrote that on it. She was confused, but she wrote that on it." "You guys are idiots. The appropriate Glad You Didn't Die token is a hooker and a bottle of Jack." "We couldn't search a hooker...Our time was limited." "You could give him an IOU."I have frightened little children, household pets, public transportation and salon neighbors reading that part. There's one section like that in each book in this trilogy. I just wait for them. I love the characters in this series. They're beautiful quirky and hilarious.
Wow! I was so satisfied that I could sit down at one time to read through this triology. The anticipate from one book to the next was well done. Even with the little wars being won, it still kept you on your seat until the very end. I loved everything about these books. Really enjoyed the first book, all the method through to the latest book. Totally awesome.
I so loved the characters in this book and will miss them all! These were believable men and women written in such a method that you didn't sneer at the dialogue or roll your eyes at their interactions. It is a paranormal story, part drama, thriller and romance. Nora Roberts knows how to hold a reader's attention. All three books were funny and entertaining. I recommend the series to anyone who wants a very new take on a paranormal tale.
Anyone who is familiar with Nora Roberts trilogies knows what they're getting when they pick one up. Three men, three women - all mates or siblings or cousins or some variation on that theme. A mystery or a supernatural situation or both. Romance ensues. But it's always well written, entertaining. The thing I like the best about NRs books is that her characters behave like true human beings. They talk real, they act real, they obtain angry, they create mistakes. The dialogue reads like true people talking and not a script, swearing and is isn't amazing literature. It's a great, fun, typical Nora read and one of her better trilogy storylines for people who like the supernatural ones. All the pieces tie up nicely in the end and everyone lives happily ever after.
This is beyond excellent. The scholarship is exceptional. The truths explored are strong and clear. This book unveils the traditions made by man that has watered down, bound up, and hindered the real Church of Jesus Christ. Reading this will change your life if your heart is begin to the Holy Spirit. You'll be amazed when you see how we have been blinded to the simplicity and purity of the church Jesus wants to build in the earth. You will learn how to shake off the chains, but others who are comfortable in their traditions may not appreciate your fresh views or freedom. Read this. Read the references. This can be a manual that will enhance your understanding of the Word of God because it will enable you to read it without the glasses of tradition hindering your vision.
I have been a church attender since in the womb (I know for a fact my mother was a faithful attender while pregnant) so needless to say I am very well versed in church and Christian culture. Interestingly enough, over the past few years but specifically over the past 7 months I have been re-evaluating what I believe, why I believe it, what practices and traditions are biblical and what are rooted in pagan culture no matter how long ago it was picked up. Also, I have been dissatisfied with church for the past 5 years but I always assumed it was the church and would go on the hunt for another one. The authors did a unbelievable job deconstructing a lot of what makes up current church culture and I see that it was the actual institution and method we do church that was one of the sources of my restlessness. I am simply dumbfounded that I was so blind before and didn't think to question a lot of these subjects myself. I am going to read the follow up because the method the describes organic church is what I desperately wish to be a part of.
