Welcome to Eclectic Wisdom
Hello and welcome! My name is Fred-Allen. I’m also known as Gingery in some online circles. I am the owner and practitioner of Eclectic Wisdom! If you’re here then you are likely looking for guidance or have an interest or curiosity in Tarot or card divination in general. Well, you’re in the right place! I’ve been studying, learning, and practicing Tarot for most of my life. 20 years at this point! It’s truly something I love. I love the many different styles, the art, the history, the meaning. You name it and I love it. I have a passion for collecting decks, reading them, and even creating them. My current major project centers around the creation of three different Tarot decks as well as an Oracle deck! This is where I have chosen to devote the majority of my energy due to recent life circumstances that don’t allow me to do many other things.

Fred did an expansive layout which outlined my question and area of focus in detail. I feel he has a connection with Divine beings whom speak to him through this divination tool to guide those on this side of the veil.
Fred-Allen’s reading gave me peace in knowing that my path is the right one. My past and present hit the nail on the head. And we spoke further about the details of my future after my reading. He truly helped me start my path towards a more peaceful future. Thank you so much, Fred-Allen! Love and Light, Brittany
This is the first professional reading I’ve had done, and it was totally worth it! I will definitely be coming back and spreading the word. The reading was in depth and written well. I have some clarity on my issue and it feels good.
Eclectic wisdom provides insight through their Art of Tarot in a way that is refreshing, accurate, and invigorating; while providing a sacred place of creation and guidance. I feel truly blessed with each reading, as new opportunities unfold with each card

Today is the first time I've posted one of my card meditations in a while. I've been thinking about it for some time, but it just didn't feel right for some reason. Today, however, I pulled a card and the card itself made me realize it was time to get back to these...read more
It would be no news to say that life has been filled with ups and downs. That is, after all, the very nature of life. That said, my life has been a crazy sort of roller-coaster this last couple of years, but especially the last several months. You see, I've been...read more
A common thing that I see all over the place is the use of the word Tarot to mean literally any divination done by any type of cards other than playing cards. It's become like a catch all term. It's not uncommon that when someone learns I love Tarot that they tell me...read more

My Tarot Meditation today is from the Hanson-Roberts Tarot. I really love this deck. While some of the people look rather odd, I find the images incredibly compelling. They are very much based on the traditional Rider-Waite images by Pamela Colman-Smith, but here they...read more
Today's meditation comes from a set of three cards. As my last meditation, this isn't a past, present, future, rather this is a single message consisting of three cards. I'll discuss each card and their meaning in this post then talk about what the message as a whole...read more
Today I decided to do something different. As each of my Tarot Meditations recently and many of my personal readings have all dealt with the subject of abundance I decided to create my own spread about abundance and my relationship to it. Here is the spread itself and...read more
Today's Tarot Meditation is a bit different from what I usually do here, but you'll begin seeing more of this as it allows for deeper meditations than a single card. Here we find the Ace of Cups and the High Priestess from the Witches Tarot. Here we find what I would...read more
The Nine of Cups from the New Mythic Tarot is the card I'm focusing on today. This deck is a re-illustration of and older deck. Most of the art is just an updated version of the old art, but some of the cards have been significantly reworked therefore changing the...read more
Today's meditation comes from the Queen of Swords from Ciro Marchetti's absolutely stunning Tarot of Dreams. I'm an absolutely huge fan of Marchetti's work in both Tarot and Lenormand as his art is always exquisite and expressive. This deck, however, is on a whole...read more
There are so many superstitions, fears, and beliefs when it comes to Tarot. I've addressed some of these before from the position of being inside the Tarot community, which you can find here. What about those outside of the Tarot world, though? Those who only know of...read more
Today I did a meditation on the Eight of Swords. I pulled this card from four different decks, each of which can be seen above. To me the similarities and the differences in these cards are amazing. They each tell a very different version of the...read more
