World Tarot Day is celebrated on May 25. Tarot is a 500-year-old system of images and symbols. While there are many different tarot traditions and tarot images, there are some things that are universally true about tarot.
Tarot is a book of spiritual wisdom in picture form. When drawn at random, tarot can give us practical and spiritual information about our lives. When studied, tarot provides a map for spiritual growth and enlightenment.
Tarot images can also provide a focus for meditation, creative prompts and manifestation.
In the hands of a trained professional tarot is a tool to aid the psychic process.
Tarot is also a tool for self-understanding, communication and spiritual attunement.
If you have a tarot deck sitting on the shelf, dust it off and put it to work!
If you are interested in tarot, get yourself and deck and get started!
If you have questions in your life, or want insight, give me a call to arrange an in-depth professional tarot reading with me!
May Global Tarot Circle Recap
Global Tarot Circle meets once a month on Webex. There is no charge to participate. It’s an opportunity for anyone with an interest in tarot to meet other tarotists, share readings and learn something new about tarot.
Our May Global Tarot Circle met on Tuesday, May 28. As usual, we started our meeting by answering questions about tarot and giving each other quick readings.
Popular questions were “Am I on the right path in life?” and “What should my direction in life be?” These are great open-ended questions that give us the opportunity to discover the ways in which we block ourselves from success, as well as our goals, decisions and priorities.
Our topic was about ways family and relationships show up in tarot. We discussed cards that predict pregnancy and indicate the gender of unborn children. We discussed cards of romance, as well as cards that discuss family and interpersonal interactions.
We paid special attention to the Six of Cups and the Queen of Swords. We discussed the personal significators that we have for ourselves and for our friends and family.
The Six of Cups is an interesting card in that it can discuss all aspects of the past. The Six of Cups can talk about hanging on to the past too much, enjoying a reunion, past life issues or happy memories.
The Queen of Swords has always gotten a bad rap. She has been seen as untrustworthy and sharp-tongued. The Queen of Swords is the most likely of the four queens to be single and childless.
In more modern tarot interpretations, we see the Queen of Swords as a woman who is not afraid to speak her truth. That she had earned such a bad reputation is perhaps an insight into the sexism of the centuries that gave birth to tarot. After all, what man wanted to deal with a woman who wouldn’t simply keep her thoughts to herself?
Global Tarot Circle meets next on June 10th. To see recordings of previous meetings and to attend the June 10th meeting, visit the Event Listing on the Tarot Circle website.
