A Tarot Reading for The Moon

I do tarot readings for tarot cards. I know, how weird is that.

A Tarot Reading for Moon:
The Moon ~ The World; Justice; Queen/wands

You send us through portals on a whim and a prayer, ignoring our pleas and screams of protest, unaware yourself of where this new passageway will take us. You just know that we have to go. You grab us by the shoulders and stand us before a mirror, forcing us to look at ourselves, our lives, and our direction with unabashed clarity and often cruel introspection. Be gone self-deception, you command. Finish what you start; wipe the slate clean; find the truth; avoid the dark places if possible…all these you whisper in our ear.

Life isn’t always fair, you state firmly and calmly, almost nonchalantly. Justice is subjective, just like art. It all depends upon your perspective as to whom is getting the fair end of the stick. Again, warnings of deception, whether coming from outside sources or from the dark corners of our own minds, filter through the symbolism on your face, the images you carry. You are rife with warnings, really wanting us to avoid the pitfalls and potholes before us, but knowing that we must choose to do so, we must choose our path, we must learn by our mistakes…and we must learn by our victories.

You tell us to get a firm grasp on life; be vigilante; be forceful when the need arises; avoid the dark side of life, the dark side of our psyche, but don’t be afraid to go there when necessity rears its ugly head. Be in control, be strong, get organized, don’t waver before duty, don’t cower before life.

Tarot Readings ~ A Personal Twist Today

Greetings!  Come join me ’round the table for an early morning Very Personal tarot session, as I have my morning beverage and turn the cards for myself (And maybe for *You* as well, if our energy is aligned!).  If you’re part of my personal circle of friends and family, or if you use to be, you might want to check in and see if the Tarot, and Spirit, has any new messages or insights into our lives.

*Note:  the “reversed Empress” sort of haunts me.  It’s usually a sign of “female problems or issues, something unexpected”, so keep this in mind.  The individual that this popped up for might actually be someone other than who I was thinking of at the time– the reversed Empress is a stinker, and she has a habit of being problematic.

I also wanted to add here that The Magician, in this reading, is my husband Joe.  The man is working his arse off!  Holding steady– keeping that “Ommmmm” going!

Tarot Tutorial: A 3 Card Spread (video)

Today we’re going to learn how to connect the traditional meanings for three cards with our intuitive interpretations in order to do a Three Card Spread.  You’ll be amazed at how much information can be found in just three cards, how much can be revealed, especially when read intuitively.

A Tarot Experiment: Blind Reading

As I have said over and over about tarot reading…the power, the knowledge, the wisdom, the insight, is not in the tarot cards– it’s in the Reader.  The cards are just a tool, a beautiful tool, that gives the reader’s sub-conscious a little jump start.  I believe that most tarot readers can actually learn to do readings without the cards.  I believe that we can teach ourselves to open up to our clients and connect in our own magickal way without any divinatory tool.  It’s just a matter of practice, of honing your skills, of learning to recognize and process psychic information, of learning to control any fear of being “wrong”.  It’s a matter of  trusting  yourself and listening to that little voice in your head. Below is my first tarot experiment, a blind reading.  Blind in that I have laid the cards, but I’m going to “read” them  before  I turn them, and then again afterwards. SL381683 The Blind Reading: A female, and the feeling of distress, but not just physical distress, it’s deeper than that.  There is a family member from the past connected to a traumatic experience or memory.  a Baker– pans and pans (baking pans) of large loaves of homemade bread.  Coins (pentacles) slipping through your fingers, and the cheerful “ka-ching” metallic noise as they do so.

Other impressions:  peasant dresses, or a peasant skirt; those little Russian doll figurines, the kind that is one inside another, inside another, etc.; the song “I’m a little teapot…”; white lilies and calendula. SL381685 After Turning the Cards: There she stands, the figure on the nine of pentacles; complete within herself, in a good place at the present time.  The energy feels like that of a “survivor”. On one side– a relationship, possibly long and enduring, but not without it’s ups and downs (the reversal).  It could also represent “something you’ve left behind”, and this makes me feel almost wistful. On the other side– the King of pentacles, a male family figure who has passed, or a man who’s influence still figures strongly in your life today. (And this influence feels all encompassing, whether this man is alive or not, you are– and have been– forever affected by his energy.)

Other impressions:  the idea of successfully “weathering the storm”; angel wings; sharing; standing at a threshold; “The Grapes of Wrath”; the ram– Aries.

____________________

Note: The individual that I’ve chosen as the recipient (or guinea pig!) for this “Blind Reading” may, or may not, choose to leave his/her impressions publicly about this reading and its accuracy.  This reading is done in complete anonymity, and the only thing that’s really important to me is protecting the querent’s privacy and working on my own skills as a reader at the same time. I might also suggest other tarot readers try this and give us your impressions! What do you think of a Blind Reading?  Did a blind reading work for you?  Do you actually pick up information more clearly before you turn the cards, or after?  (Leave a comment, let us know.)
