Tarot decks aren’t alive. They are cardboard and ink. Yet, in the hands of a tarot reader, tarot cards seem to come alive to speak truth, bring healing and give direction. There are many reasons this happens. Part of the reason is that tarot works with sacred archetypes. Beyond that, in the five centuries that tarot has existed, each tarot reader, artist and student has added their energy to the body of tarot. Another reason is the power of creativity, and the intentions of the artists who create each deck. Yet another reason is the energy we use to care for our decks.
Love is a spiritual energy, but when we trust our relationships to dogma, we often end up alone or abused.

This was my first reading in my new Palm City office!
This week we see the Page of Cups, the Eight of Swords and the Queen of Pentacles.
There is so much in this message about what we need to listen to, and what we don't need to listen to! We must listen to Spirit, we must speak our hearts, we must deny the voice of anxiety, and pay attention to our responsibilities.
This week, two Court Cards and a Major Arcana! Willingness to change our beliefs, to communicate with one another, and to be both leaders and students are the important messages this week.
This session of Global Tarot Circle focuses on how we work with oracle cards, how we see thoughts and feelings in tarot cards, and plenty of other information, as well as some interesting readings.
This week I am working with my Morgan Greer Tarot. Our cards for the week are Six of Wands, Page of Wands and the High Priestess. This provides a great deal of opportunity for success, learning, communication, fun and internal growth.
This week our cards from the Hanson-Roberts Tarot encourage us to enjoy our comfort zone, and then leave it for adventure and growth. In all this, we must move swiftly, do the right thing and speak the truth!
This week's message, and the message for the equinox, could not be any clearer. Focus on work, business, responsibility, family and community, have confidence in yourself, and work to get to the next level!
This week's reading with Ancestral Path Tarot starts off with a bang! The Tower asks us to question our beliefs, and to prepare for change. The Six of Swords reversed shows that sometimes we resist logical thinking; the very thing we need to move forward to calmer times after the shake-up of the Tower. The Queen of Sacred Circles (Pentacles) reminds us to nurture ourselves and others. Nurturance and logical thinking bring healing after change, and move us forward to a more peaceful and prosperous time.
This week I used Ciro Marchetti's Legacy of the Divine Tarot to deliver this profound message. On the mundane side, beware of exes and unwelcome old friends trying to make a reentrance into your life this week. DonÕt be drawn in by feelings of nostalgia!
Be open to welcome new love into your life. In all things, look to the future, not to the past!
On a deeper level, look within to discover the ways you might be resisting personal change and growth. How can you bring more love to the world this week? How can you practice radical compassion in your life?
The cards I drew were Death reversed, Knight of Cups and Six of Cups reversed.
Tarot friends around the world share readings and discuss important tarot topics and techniques. Topics included tarot for global crises, how to do general readings and how tarot professionals handle difficult clients.
This week's Three-Card Reading (August 19, 2019, through August 25, is all about closure! Honor your pain, acknowledge your struggles, process what you need to process, and then let it go!
The Page of Wands supports us in this by asking us to have the heart of the student, to be playful, communicative, creative and spiritual.
