Tarot works best when dealing in the present, working with what you need to know to transform or transmute your situation in the now; helping to guide and direct you on the best path of growth and knowledge. Information around a reading tends to expand outward into the next four to five months. Please remember that time and energy are mutable, thus projected outcomes have the possibility of changing and shifting. The intention and benefit of Tarot is to help us make informed decisions to help create change for the better. When you seek with a pure heart all things are possible! "Ask and you will know... seek and you will find"!
Working With Tarot
Tarot works wonders at guiding you through life's lessons. It will indicate when to prepare for change, when its time to celebrate or when its time to go. It will give warnings when travelling down the wrong path and teaches what we need to work on for personal growth. On occasion the cards will show hardships to come that cannot be diverted in this case, you can now prepare and be ready for when the storm comes. There is also the, "It's not clear" answer, which means you have to trust the process; things are working out behind the scenes that have yet to be put into alignment. Do not fret, you must have patience! There is a beautiful flow to Tarot sending us the messages we need to know.
my Reading Process
In advance of your arrival I take the time to clear the room and set the cards for you. Once we sit at the table we will take a moment to focus inward to the space of the heart. I use a technique that requires I shuffle and select the cards on your behalf. There are a few reasons for this; firstly, it is common to pull cards for ourselves that we may wish and/or hope for. Secondly, this deck is attuned to my energy and understanding for reading it. When removing the card selection process from the inquirer a more objective reading can be attained and we can allow the clearest energy to come through.
Take some time to contemplate the areas of your life you would like to address. Common themes include career, love, health, family, finances, spiritual evolution and friendships. You may have a pressing issue you need help with or perhaps you are seeking answers to a dilemma. Ask that you receive clear information to help you make the most beneficial choices for your life. Be open to the what is brought to the table and trust your inner guidance. Take what you need and leave behind anything that doesn't sit right. Ultimately the power is in your hands.
Tarot can be traced to parlour games of the 1400's. Mysteriously it made the leap to divination by the 1750's, with unfounded rumours of connections to the ancient Egyptians and The Book Of Thoth or the Emerald Tablets. This is when some of the first permutations of the images we see today began to appear. A few hundred years later in 1909 the Rider-Waite-Smith deck made its debut transforming Tarot to what we know nowadays.
Thanks to A. E. Waite, an adept student of esoteric wisdom and occult practices, we have one of the most tried and true decks of all time. He commissioned and directed artist, Pamela Colman Smith to draw and paint the 78 cards of the Tarot which is notable in many of todays variations. His deck was one of first to have detailed illustrations of the Minor Arcana or Pip Cards. Through correspondence, Waite brought together the illustrations and elements of Tarot from several decks before him adding deep esoteric symbology and knowledge of the pathways of the Kabbalah. Subsequently many of today's decks may not have existed if it wasn't for his contribution. Others have followed the path laid by A. E. Waite inspiring the hundreds of different decks that are now available.
