Say a few words about yourself! Here are some ideas for what to say:
  • Have you followed the community from Imzy or are you new here?

  • What are your pronouns and how would you like to be addressed here?

  • What do you hope to find in this group?

  • Why are you interested in tarot, how do you approach reading?

  • Are you new to the cards or have you been reading for a long time?

  • Do you have a favourite deck?

  • What do you think distinguishes your approach to tarot?

Choose whichever questions you like or come up with your own introduction. The goal is to let others get to know you a little bit!

Hi everyone,
Imzy has now closed for posting and our next tarot event will be hosted here this Wednesday. The post should be open from around 10am GMT.

I thought this might be a good time to check in with everyone and ask whether Wednesdays are still okay for most people. If something's not right we can try to change it for next week! I also know that many of our members are from the US and so posting the event posts early in my UK morning is pretty useless to them - should it be changed?

A while ago I made some pictures meant to explain how birthcards are calculated. Here they are:




(also in a post on tumblr)

Here's a link to a card calculator so you don't have to do the math.

Do you guys know about birthcards? What do you think of them? Do you like yours?

Seeing as concerns about image posting are frequently expressed by our community members, allow me to provide you with this handy guide by Dreamwidth itself:

How do I post an image in an entry?


To post an image in an entry, the image needs to be located on the internet. An image on your computer won't display to other users.

Dreamwidth has an image hosting service that you can use to host your images. There are also free image hosting services such as Flickr (by Yahoo!), Instagram, or Photobucket. You can also upload the image to your own webspace. Images posted on Facebook generally won't work in a Dreamwidth entry.

To post an image, you'll need to know the image location URL. In most browsers, you can get the image location by right-clicking on the image and choosing "Copy image location" or "Copy image address".

The HTML tag to post an image is
.
Replace IMAGE URL with the image's URL.

To make your entries more accessible to people who can't view images, add a text description (also known as "alt text") to the image tag. To post an image with alt text, use the HTML tag


If you use Dreamwidth's image hosting, any text included in the Short Description field will be used as alt text in the HTML the site gives you to post. We have some tips on writing alt text that will help your descriptions be as useful as possible to people who can't view images.


From what I've tried, links to images saved in Tumblr drafts, sent through Facebook messenger or through email all seem to work. I won't be making this post a sticky post but I'll link to it every time there is a reading event. On other occasions, it should be easy to find in the "posting help" tag.

Hey everyone! I thought it would be a good idea to make reference post for bolding text, linking images, making links, etc. so that we can all easily reference it when needed. A lot of the codes that work on livejournal also work here, so if you were ever on lj, you'll recognize them! DW also has their own codes that are interchangable with the lj ones. I've tested them and the lj ones do work, so you can use whichever version of the code you like best when @username.

Anyone here learned in the ways of Dreamwidth? I looked around the FAQs but I'd still love to have some help, especially around how communities work over here if there is any mechanic for rule setting and so on. I need someone willing to help me and possibly co-lead the community with me, let me know if you're willing to come to my rescue.
