Dreams…and Dreams in Tarot

I’m back in the saddle here after a week away on the opposite coast.  It was a truly great trip, but now that it’s done, I’m returning to our regularly scheduled posting and updating.  A dream I had in the early morning hours today seemed like a great starting point for launching that return… Dreams… How do … More Dreams…and Dreams in Tarot

TAROT TIP: Seek Card Concepts in the “Real” World

If you’re seeking additional ways by which you can firm up your grasp on Tarot card meanings beyond rote memorization, I often preach the value of looking for real world manifestations of card concepts. Here’s an example… I went to a family member’s wedding yesterday, and the reception was held at this old building with all … More TAROT TIP: Seek Card Concepts in the “Real” World

TAROT TIP: Explore Multiple Decks

I have a bit of a deck-collecting habit. I also have this one friend who feels the need to question this habit of mine. Now, to be clear, my overall deck-buying impulse flares up much less often and much less intensely than it did when I was first bitten by the Tarot bug. To large … More TAROT TIP: Explore Multiple Decks

TAROT TIP: The Aces

I feel like the Aces in Tarot are special in their own way, somewhat like the Court Cards are, but maybe even more so, because they’re like a sub-subset hiding within the larger subset of “Numbered Cards.” They’re essentially the 1’s of the deck, but they have a special name, and even in the otherwise … More TAROT TIP: The Aces

TAROT TIP: Dealing with Court Cards

Court Cards: infamous among Tarot practitioners for their slippery refusal to be interpreted with ease. Four Court “ranks” across four Suits yields up 16 distinct personalities to understand and keep track of. That’s a pretty large cast of characters, and without handy “cosmic job descriptions” such as “The Empress” or “The Hermit” to help us … More TAROT TIP: Dealing with Court Cards

The Hanged Man: Perspectives on Pain

One of my favorite cards – The Hanged Man – came up in a client reading yesterday. It led to a really interesting discussion about suffering. I was asking if a certain pattern of suffering was the result of the client maybe somehow romanticizing that particular brand of pain. This then brought up the question … More The Hanged Man: Perspectives on Pain

Tarot: The Universe Card Has Something to Say!

Yesterday, I posted about the Shadow Card in a reading – that’s the card left sitting at the bottom of the unused portion of the deck after all the cards have been drawn for the reading itself. The Shadow Card can shed additional light on the reading as a whole. There’s also the Quintessential Card, … More Tarot: The Universe Card Has Something to Say!
