Ten Questions Every Tarot Reader (Except Me) Fears

Ten Questions Every Tarot Reader (Except Me) Fears

  Last year, I shared a post from James Bulls about the Ten Questions Every Tarot Reader Fears. The list James posted gives us all a fabulous way to look inside of the way we read tarot for others. Today, I will be answering the questions for you so that you can get a feel for my readings. Heck, I am even using the same images in this article, because I liked them so well! LOL! Blessed be! #1) How did you become a Tarot reader? Did you have a teacher, or did you teach yourself? Initially, when I started reading tarot in the late 80s/early 90s, I didn’t have a teacher. I picked up the Thoth, Mirror Of Your Relationships deck and started working with the cards and the guidebook that came with it. I have to say, working with that deck and those concepts really opened my perception of life up and gave me LOADS of inspiration. When I started reading tarot, it wasn’t as common and out in the open as it is today – we didn’t have the internet and teachers and classes were few, far between, and out of my budget. So, I read and read and read the tarot. I learned by doing. When Doreen Virtue released her Certified Angel Card Reader course in 2012, I signed up right away and took the course. The concepts Doreen introduced about a more intuitive and free-flowing approach to tarot really helped me to expand my readings and combine the classic meanings of the cards with the intuitive messages I receive. Since then, I have done...
How Do You Read Tarot Reversals?

How Do You Read Tarot Reversals?

Reading tarot reversals. Such an interesting and diverse topic to discuss. I do work with tarot reversals, leaving the cards laying upside-down and examining them as being blockages, stagnation, lack of motion, the need to go back to the meaning of the card before. Today, I did a three card reading for my reading for the MoonCoaching assignment in Silvia “Moon Coach” Pancaro’s Facebook group for this month’s New Moon in Aries group. If you’ve never heard of Silvia Pancaro or Moon~Coaching ™, let me tell you a little bit about it. Basically put, each month (Silvia calls them moonths, as the months are based on the moon cycle), Silvia creates a Facebook group dedicated to harnessing the power of the sign the moon is in along with using tarot readings as a point of reflection for how to best use that power. This month, moonth, the New Moon was in Aries, which signals the beginning of the Zodiac Year. Aries is a fire sign, a sign of new beginnings, forging ahead, breaking out of the mold, creating change that you are excited about and motivated toward. I chose a couple of cards to set my intention for the month and year, to be honest. This month, I purposely chose the Queen of Fire and the Queen of Earth. Basically put, I want to reclaim my fire, my personal power, my passion, my self-confidence, my sexuality. All of those are associated with the Queen of Fire. I also want to create a positive home environment and be in better charge of my material ‘world’ – aspects associated with the...
Weekly Tarot Reading December 19th, 2016

Weekly Tarot Reading December 19th, 2016

Ahhh… It is so easy to want to just settle down in the evening and watch some Desperate Housewives on Amazon. But NO! I didn’t post this week’s weekly tarot reading yet, and that is more important to me! And the message is so fitting for me right now. You see, I’ve been wanting to embody more of the energy of the Queen of Pentacles lately – her warm and comfy home, her relationships with those around her, her way with money and creating security for herself and her family. She’s grounded and focused – her home is well cared for. I know that I’ve been more ‘in my head’ than ‘in my home’ recently, even to the point where I feel like my body is here, but my energy is missing from my home and family life. It might be focused on money – but it feels more like I am spinning my wheels than making any real headway. And I’d rather redirect the focus of my energy toward the things that matter most to me, like my family, friends, and home, than I do on chasing wealth.  And honestly, central to achieving what I want lies nurturing the seeds I have planted, continuing to care for them and have faith they will flourish. (Seven of Pentacles) I feel like I run to plant more seeds and til more soil while ignoring what’s already been sown. It’s time to pause and evaluate what I have already done – what needs nurturing – and returning my energy to harvesting those things when they are ready. That means that I...
Tarot Spread for Trump Presidency – What’s Going To Happen In The Next 4 Years

Tarot Spread for Trump Presidency – What’s Going To Happen In The Next 4 Years

Yesterday (November 9, 2016, the day Trump got elected) was a hard day for many of Light Workers and Healers. It felt like a blow to the Earth, to the Universe, to the Light itself to see a man of Trump’s nature get elected for what could be considered to be the most powerful position in the world. I, myself, was having a hard time processing Trump’s victory. There are a thousand reasons I fear what might become of the United States – the world – with him as the POTUS. Ultimately, though, I am a light worker, a tarot reader, and an energy alchemist who figures out how to take negative energy and turn it into positive energy. That’s the task I’ve been assigned to and the one that I embrace. Well, Trump’s victory definitely gives me something to work with – that’s for sure! I decided to get my Angel Tarot deck out and do a reading to see what I might expect from a Trump presidency. The results were kind of unexpected and helped to put me at ease. It was actually GOOD – better than I hoped! Temperance came up right in the center of the reading (bottom row). Patience, moderation – the cup being poured from the lower cup to the higher cup shows something impossible being done. We need to react with constraint and self-control. We need to use this total upheaval of what we hoped the US was to feed into creating what we want America to be. On the left, the Nine of Cups – dreams come true! Satisfaction and satiety are the themes...

You Are In Charge Of Your Destiny!

You Are In Charge Of Your Destiny!

As a Tarot Reader, I work with a lot of people who are looking for answers about their future. Will we stay together? Will we work it out? Will I pass this test? Will I have legal issues? Will it turn out like I want it to? What do you see? The thing that I try to tell all of my clients is that, no matter what I see, the future is theirs to create. What I see in the cards is not carved in stone, but is influenced by the choices a person makes. Some people are pretty frustrated by that. “But… but… but – you won’t guarantee what you say will come to pass?” In short: No, I won’t. I firmly believe in a person’s free will influencing the outcome of his or her life, and drastic changes in direction or choice equate to drastic changes in outcome. For example, I’ve found that many people want true love in their lives, but are fixated on getting that love from a person who doesn’t treat them how they should. Will I find true love? Yes! But you have to let that one go! Or people who want to tempt Fate every chance they get, making it hard for me to predict a good outcome. Will I ace the exam? I say he’ll pass, and so he doesn’t study and stays up partying into the early hours the night before his exam, so he fails. Is that my fault as his reader, or his as the person in charge of his life? We all know that his actions have...
