These Cards Need Time to Flesh Out Their Story

I just laid these cards very early this morning, when I was finished watering the flowers, and I was hot and sweaty from being outside in this dark, barely light, overcast, 90+ degree morning.  And here they are.  As I turned each one, I spoke its message out loud, doing my “scratchings” in my notebook, as I usually do, so the story already has a frame.

Today I’ll give you a picture of the cards and the “outline” of their story, those first words that came to me with each card.  Then I’ll let the cards lay, as along as it takes, so they can tell their story, so they can give us a more complete picture.

8/pentacles:  someone at work

The Fool:  the beginning of something new

Ace/cups:  a relationship

Knight/swords:  happens fast, a whirlwind

Wheel of Fortune:  changes everything

7/cups:  a lot of decisions to make

I can’t wait to hear more of the story.  If this resonates with you, keep thinking about it, the universe (and spirit) will connect the dots, just like magic, works every time.

Queen of Swords

Daily Tarot Card ~ Queen/swords, Light Seers Tarot
Someone is taking some quiet solitary time to really sit back and think something through very analytically, with deep intellectual thought. You are removing yourself from the line of fire, or the hub of a chaotic or messy situation, to figure out what you want to do and where you want to go from here. This card tells me that someone is putting thoughts (and words) together in a careful and mindful matter so that they are clearly understood. There have been enough misunderstandings and miscommunication.

Getting Where You Need to Be ~ it’s a process

Hello to all my Special People! Todays’ reading shows us that life and the desired outcomes we have for it can be quite a process. From the Hanged Man (the pause button) and the stall you may be in; to the Queen of Swords and the verbal confrontation you may have to navigate through; to the individual who will always want more from you. We’ll be drawing several cards to clarify the situation, to seek the solutions, and to look ahead to the possible outcome.

Tarot Flirts with Astrology ~ The Planets

I’m BACK!!  If anyone has noticed my absence and lack of new posts or social media activity, I’ve been sick with my second bout of Covid, from around August 17th to now, October 3rd.  This is just my third day in a row of consistently feeling “normal”.  The symptoms of this virus tend to hang on, and I was beginning to think I might be a “long hauler”.  It’s hideous.  Get vaccinated, and wear a mask in public places.  Believe me, you don’t want my experience.  Here’s a link to my Facebook post update:  click  HERE

The following blog post is an excerpt from the book above.  This book will help the newbie to tarot lay solid ground work for a successful connection with the cards; and this book will open vistas to ideas, connections, and intuitive inspiration for those more experienced with tarot reading.Throughout this book, you’ll find plenty of empty pages so you can write your own notes at the end of various sections.  When you get ready to lay the ground work for tarot spreads, you’ll find a reading all set up for you and space to write your own interpretation. The Ultimate Guide to Tarot: For Your Personal Tarot Journey highlights intuitive reading, unique and personal interpretations, and the ability to think outside the box.

Your Daily Tarot Cards & a Book Update

I’ve been busy working on the second new book for this year. April will be intense, and May will see it through to the home stretch. We’re tentatively looking at June and September as book release months. While I’ve been caught up in the birth pangs of a book, I have still kept tarot readings open and available at The Tarot Parlour. This year is creatively very exciting albeit very stressful for other apparent and sad reasons.

I don’t remember the last time I picked up a deck of tarot cards, and so today I gave in to the overwhelming inclination to do so. Here’s your daily tarot cards for today all gathered into one spot for you… click HERE

Bright blessings, and stay safe!!

Today’s Free Tarot Reading

This reading is brought to you from The Tarot Parlour FB Page. You can visit this page to view and read cards I’ve been pulling over the past several days. Subscribe or Follow this page to receive updates. If you would like a personal reading, geared specifically to you and your energy and your circumstances, go to The Tarot Parlour.

I just pulled The Hanged Man ~ Someone is relying upon someone else for things they shouldn’t. You are being fed opinions, ideas, answers, or suggestions by someone who doesn’t have your best interest in mind. What they’re doing is going to benefit themselves and the outcome that they wish for. You are being spoon fed a bunch of crap by an angry vindictive person. Spit it out.

I just pulled 2 of wands reversed ~ If you’re not getting the attention, the time, the comfort, the emotional investment that you feel you need from the source it should be coming from, you will be tempted to turn else where. If you are not giving the attention, the time, the comfort, the emotional investment to someone for whom you are the source, they will turn else where. Humans find solace where they can.

I just pulled Queen of cups ~ emotions rule. This is just too large an issue, too important a decision, too deep a wound, too profound a betrayal, too riveting a circumstance. It will not allow your head, your common sense, your better judgment, to give an opinion, to formulate an action. It’s slippery, whatever the issue, and it’s going to be difficult to hang onto it in order to correct or solve it.

I just pulled The Empress ~ Someone is holding something over you… their power. They’re holding secrets, they’re holding onto influence, they’re holding on to something that is not theirs to keep. They’re no longer doing it now because it’s what they really want; they’re hanging on now just to prove a point, to get the last word, to feel superior, to feel victorious. What did they win? Better yet, what did you lose?

The Week Ahead Tarot Spread ~ Interpretations

It’s time for me to take a break from book writing and spend some quality time creating a blog post (much more fun and relaxing than book writing, no pressure).  This week at my Facebook page, The Tarot Parlour, I posted a tarot spread titled “The Week Ahead”, and I drew three cards for this reading.  Below is the spread, the cards, and my interpretation.  I drew these cards randomly, with no one in particular in mind; however, I wouldn’t be surprised if these cards wind up resonating with me, or with some of my readers.  That’s just how the tarot rolls.

 

The Cards ~

 


1.  What you need to think about ~

For some of us, it’s actually time to put ourselves first.  A  little narcissism, at the right time and for the right reasons, is actually a good thing.  Whether you are having questions or doubts about a relationship, or a career change, or something else uniquely personal to you.  It’ about time you stop going over in your mind the repercussions your decision will make on every single person remotely connected to this situation and start thinking about the repercussions it’s having on YOU.

2.  What you need to do ~

You need to kick to the curb all of those things that are standing in your way.  There’s something you need to do, and there might be something you need to eliminate from your life in order to accomplish this… addictive behavior; codependent behavior, an individual or individuals who don’t have your best interest at heart, and maybe even if they do; your own fears and doubts and insecurities.  The list could go on.  What is it that you’re thinking about doing?  What’s holding you back?  How driven are you to reach this goal?  What are the repercussions for you if you don’t?  Is there a time frame to all of this?

3.  The challenge ~

The biggest challenge for you is taking that first step.  The unknown is scary; doing something big on your own is scary; taking a new path, beginning a new journey, turning a new page… they’re all scary.  It takes a great deal of courage, and a nice chunk of self-confidence to turn your back on the familiar and start off down the universal road to the Future looking the Unknown directly in the eye the whole time.  Conquering your own fears and doubts is part of the challenge.  Identify them, get acquainted with them, embrace them, laugh at them, and discard them.  Your journey awaits.

Today’s Inspiration ~ The Sun

The major arcana card, The Sun, reeks of happiness; but sometimes this happiness comes at a price, and sometimes it comes after a long period of intense seeking and personal revelations. There is virtually no fairy tales in real life with happy ever after endings and stagnant heroes and heroines who remain frozen in one perfect moment of time and space.   And this is not the artificial kind of “happiness” that the tarot card, The Sun, represents. It has more depth than that.

A moment of happiness snatched from the teeth of sorrow is much more profound, with a much larger impact on the human psyche, than a life lived in one eternal “Leave it to Beaver” episode.   And that’s what this tarot card is all about.

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.)
