BIT Tarot Challenge: Field of Poppies

Poppies If you're familiar with my book Back in Time Tarot, you'll remember that my innovative Back in Time (BIT) Tarot Method allows absolute beginners to learn Tarot by starting with a memory, photo, movie, book, fairytale, conversation, news item, and so on...and then pairing the components of each with a Tarot card (or cards).

If you'd like a fun introduction to my BIT Method, check out this post. You can also explore more about the BIT Tarot Method by using the BIT Tarot Snapshots category to the right or at this link.

In Back in Time Tarot, I do a BIT Snapshot of the movie The Wizard of Oz, matching certain aspects of the movie with Tarot cards (it was one of my favorite ones to do!). But you don't have to use a long movie, book or biographical event to do the BIT Method! No, you can just pair one person, photo, image, character, brand, quote, etc. with a card.

I'll be posting more full-length BIT Snapshots here on my blog, but will also do mini-ones like this one. Now, in my book, I didn't connect the Field of Poppies with a card. Here's your challenge: What card would you associate with the Field of Poppies from The Wizard of Oz movie? Why?

Poppies 2 I can't wait to hear what you come up with! If you don't yet have my book, you can order it from Amazon here or the Kindle edition here. You can check out my book trailer and read even more about my book at my website at this link. Of course, you can always get my book from your favorite brick-and-mortar or online retailer, too! (ISBN 978-1571745873)

If you don't have a Tarot deck, my book has the entire Universal Waite in grayscale in the back so you can still use the BIT Method. Online, you can visit Joan Bunning's site that not only has all 78 cards of the Tarot, but also great explanations. Joan was one of a dozen Tarot luminaries who contributed her own BIT Snapshot to my book (how cool is that?!).

If you're on Twitter, you can also play along with my BIT Tarot Method using the #BITtarot you can post your card associations to the BIT Tarot Challenge there, here or both!

Janet, some advice? The deck I have is pirate-themed, which doesn't have any resemblance to the Wizard of Oz obviously, or pictures of flowers for that matter. :) How do I make a connection?

Janet Boyer

Hi LD! Did you read those posts I referred you to, by any chance? I explained a bit more on the other thread, too.

How about this: if you don't yet have my book, may I send you a signed copy w/ bookmarks with your T.D. Jakes book prize? Just let me know here or via email! My treat to you for being a faithful blog reader and a thoughtful poster. :o)


Awwwwwwwwwww! Really????? Wow that would be awesome! I was planning to get a copy, but to have it come specially from you would be a real treat!! Thanks, Janet!!!

Janet Boyer

Yes, really! Shall I make it out to Lost Droplets or your real name? You're very welcome. All I ask is if you like my book, find it useful or eye-opening, just tell people about it and maybe review it on Amazon if you don't mind. :oD


You can use my real name. :)

I have never done any reviews on Amazon, except for leaving feedback for sellers. But I love when I go on there and I see one of your reviews listed for the book I'm looking at! I will try to start adding my own reviews, since I do find others' helpful. Thanks for the suggestion, Janet!

Janet Boyer

Awww, well thanks! I've scaled back on my reviews because I'm too busy writing my own books (plus blogging, doing Tarot readings, homeschooling, etc.). I think you'd make a great reviewer; the more the better, IMO!
