Today we carry on with the 30 Day Tarot Challenge, set by Ree at 78Keys over on Tumblr. Her question today is this: For what purposes do you usually use the Tarot (self-reflection, guidance, advice, recreation, communing with spirits/dead, communication with deity, other)?
If you’ve visited and reviewed my site, you’ll know that my aim is to help you find the answers you want with the power of Tarot, and that I don’t plan on saving the world, just provide Tarot readings in a friendly and convenient manner. That’s my “sales” pitch, but what do I use it for? What questions can be asked to help you (or myself) find the answers?
Well, I can tell you what I do use it for. I use it for self-reflection, for the clients and for myself personally. I use it for personal guidance, advise and meditation. I’ve used it to connect with and find my Spirit Guide and learn about her. I’ve used it in Workshops to explore how others use it to commune with deities and how some readers do predictions, connect with the i-Ching, Numerology and Mythology. I’ve also used Tarot in building up my Tarot business, to take advise on what the next step would be and used decision spreads to help work out how certain things might work out. Or not, as the case goes.
In most decks, the Queen of Swords is your clear advisor, the one who will cut through the cloud of chatter (or that smelly stuff we all call bull****) and tell you exactly how it is, even if you don’t want to hear it and she’ll tell you this because you asked. In the Wildwood, that’s the Queen of Arrows: Fierce, protective, straight to the point, graceful, alluring, refreshingly honest.
The Queen of Pentacles is more your business woman (Pentacles equates to money, job, home) and she’s good with the money and getting things like projects and practical things taken care of. Combine these two ladies and you’re in for a sure winner.
The Tarot is like a mirror, it reflects only what it sees, but these are just 78 pieces of card. Aren’t they?
If you’d like to see how this works (rather than have me explain it) you can book your session with me via this page. I don’t bite, honestly!
