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...

Today’s Oracle Card – The Dragon’s Lair

Now this is a card for my inner dragon tamer. It excites me. It scares me a little. But I know I am ready for this adventure… You might get the sense that there is a little danger ahead of you – that exciting sort of danger that could be life changing. Something that will leave you rich and rewarded if you beat it – or ragged and half-dead. It’s time to make some life altering changes, the scary kind of changes. You might not have been living a life that feels truly aligned with your internal guidance and even your ethics and morals, and it is time to reset your course. Be courageous. Have no fear. Fight the good fight. Good luck and blessings on your...

(0) The Fool

The Fool Keywords: Honesty, authenticity, courage, optimism, new beginnings, openness, trust. I will admit that I wasn’t very fond of the Fool when I first started reading tarot, many years ago. There is something about the modern feelings about the term “fool” or “foolish” that are a turn-off. But, once I got to really know and understand what the Fool was all about, I was much more attracted to his spirit! He is the one who sees what he wants and goes out and tries to get it! His motivations are pure and driven by his authentic desires. Fear of failing or of looking like – well – like a FOOL do not bother him! He wears his heart on his sleeve and follows his whims to wherever they lead him. He takes those leaps of faith and keeps his fingers crossed about the results. As a life coach, I find that the Fool is something of a mascot to me. When working with clients, I will always encourage them to follow their dreams, to honestly and openly communicate their needs and to pursue their passions. Of course, there can be downsides to this card – rushing from project to project or love to love without thinking about the consequences of your actions or being foolish in a way that is not self-serving, but selfish…etc. All in all, I have come to appreciate the Fool and his energy – especially when I need to see that the time is right for me to take on those new challenges or to really be honest with myself about what I desire...
