  1. That was so wonderful and informative!
    But to me, the cards represented a slightly different story. It seemed like the slacker was actually taking revenge on the magician for some harm done, and that the thief was really only stealing to recover some coveted object/ideal which was stolen from them by the magician. And the magician stands virtuously above it all, believing themself innocent and manipulated.
    Dear me, how I ramble on…. Thanks for the wonderful video!

  2. Reblogged this on Stirring Up Magic and commented:
    I love using this spread! It’s great when you’re first learning, and it’s great when your an old hat! A basic tarot spread that you can use no matter how long you’ve been doing it!

  3. This is a fun lesson. I would recommend when presenting the cards for the audience to interpret, show them from the reader’s perspective. Visually I saw the 10 of Wands and Magician as upright and the 7 of Swords as reversed, and it made it difficult to reverse them in my head.

    • That’s a good point!…This is one reason I include a photo of the cards involved in the lesson. Also, if the viewer has their own deck, they can lay the cards out for themselves, which would be extremely beneficial to the process.
