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!
Thank you so much! I look forward to connecting with you through Eclectic Wisdom! Love and light.
Reverend Jennifer McFarlane

This post isn't one just about Tarot or cards. This one is pretty personal. It is, however, related to the cards I pulled today, which I'll explain more later on. Life is a wild adventure. As a child you are taught all kinds of things about planning, preparing, and...read more
This week looks to be governed by the Five of Cups. Here we have the Five of Cups from the Hanson-Roberts Tarot. One thing I love about this deck is that it's a very soft deck. The art style is absolutely beautiful and done in soft colored-pencil style. One thing that...read more
Once again I have two cards here for the meditation. This time the cards are from David's Tarot, which is an absolutely fantastic deck that is entirely free to download and print! I'll be 100% honest that I don't believe this is a good deck for a beginner, but if you...read more
For today's post I started out by pulling a single card, like I always do, but I had a very strong sense that I needed to pull a second card. One of the primary things I teach when teaching others Tarot is to trust your intuition and listen to it. So, in practicing...read more
The Empress from Ciro Marchetti's Gilded Tarot is one of my personal favorite versions of this card. The Empress is always a great card, but his depiction of her is absolutely amazing and quite powerful, to me. While the Empress is often a message of femininity and...read more
So, here we have the Hanged Man from the Angel Tarot. I have to be honest, off all the cards out there this is the one I probably get along with the least. Whenever he shows up in a reading for myself I channel my inner Dean Winchester with a, "Son of a bitch!" Why,...read more
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
Hello all! I'm still alive! I'm sorry for my incredibly extended absence here. Lately my life has been filled with crazy medical issues which have led to some pretty intense financial struggles. Just keeping my life held barely together has been quite the challenge...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
